Steak with Garlic Shrimp Cream Sauce Recipe

Steak with Garlic Shrimp Cream Sauce Recipe

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and I cooked dinner for Hubby and I. Many go out to eat on Valentine’s Day but I prefer to stay at home. I can cook, even a bit fancier meal, for less than it costs to go out and we don’t have all the crowds and waiting in line as if we go out. Hubby is a meat and potatoes kind of guy so that was my focus for the meal this year. I decided to make filet mignon with garlic shrimp cream sauce along with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus. Bragging on … Continue Reading →
Classic Beef Pot Roast in Under an Hour in Power Pressure Cooker

Classic Beef Pot Roast in Under an Hour in Power Pressure Cooker

Recently I received a Power Pressure Cooker to review. I have never used a pressure cooker before so this was all totally new to me. Hubby has more of an old fashioned pressure cooker that he uses for canning, but I don’t mess with that one at all. Honestly, I was a bit skeptical that the Power Pressure Cooker could cook food as fast as it says – but I was willing to try. My first use was actually to try and make brown rice to go with my Pepper Steak recipe. I followed the instructions, but it was still … Continue Reading →
National Filet Mignon Day – Recipe and Infographic

National Filet Mignon Day – Recipe and Infographic

Today is National Filet Mignon Day! Celebrate with a nice juice steak like this recipe for Filet Mignon with Herb Butter Sauce and Mushrooms. The filet is one of the most tender cuts of beef and very flavorful, it is also quite lean. The filet is often sold already wrapped with a strip of bacon, this adds fat and flavor to the cut. However, sauces can also be used to enhance the flavor. This is traditionally the most expensive cut of beef, but in my opinion, well worth the cost. Remember that you also are able to eat the entire … Continue Reading →
Grilled Beef Rack of Ribs and Country Barbecue Potatoes

Grilled Beef Rack of Ribs and Country Barbecue Potatoes

(Family Features) Firing up the grill is an American tradition. The farm families who produce the food so many people enjoy at backyard cookouts want to share some of their favorite grilling recipes, as well as an appreciation for how food gets from the farm to the table. Farmers like Amanda Folkens, from Iowa, Danell Kalcevic, from Colorado, and Nicole Small, from Kansas, have joined with more than 70 other farmer volunteers across the country in the CommonGround program as a way to talk with home cooks about how food is grown and raised. “On our farm, animal care is … Continue Reading →
Smoked Beef Brisket Hash and Eggs

Smoked Beef Brisket Hash and Eggs

On Labor Day Hubby smoked a beef brisket. Oh my, it was so delicious! The brisket has that beefiness that we all love and a healthy dose of smoke that makes it even better. Brisket is usually a pretty large cut of meat though which means we had plenty of leftovers. I tried to come up with some creative uses for the leftovers during the week and this Smoked Beef Brisket Hash that I served with fried eggs (Hubby’s favorite) was a huge hit! This hash and eggs would be great for breakfast, but is equally delicious as a dinner. … Continue Reading →
French Onion Pasta Recipe

French Onion Pasta Recipe

Pasta is not something I eat a lot of anymore but I do still love it. When I do make pasta for a meal it needs protein and lots of flavor. Recently on Pinterest I came across a recipe for French Onion Pasta from Stephanie Cooks. The name alone jumped out at me! I decided I had to try this recipe but with my own twist on it. Thanks Stephanie for the inspiration! One of the big changes is that I am adding beef. You could of course leave it out or use chicken if you wanted, but we like … Continue Reading →
Easy Pepper Steak Recipe – Just 5 Ingredients

Easy Pepper Steak Recipe – Just 5 Ingredients

This is a recipe I grew up with. My mom made this and I always loved it. My guess is that the original recipe is from Campbell’s, but I’m not sure. When I got married this was one of the first recipes I asked my mom for and I was shocked at how easy it was! For me it is a comfort food. Hubby enjoys this dish too although my son never has cared for it, probably because I use a LOT of pepper. If you think you do not like green peppers, not to worry. While the green pepper … Continue Reading →
Lime and Cumin Flat Iron Steak and Grilled Corn on the Cob with Lime-Cumin Butter, and Grilled Zucchini

Lime and Cumin Flat Iron Steak and Grilled Corn on the Cob with Lime-Cumin Butter, and Grilled Zucchini

Lime and Cumin Flat Iron Steak and Grilled Corn on the Cob with Lime-Cumin Butter and Grilled Zucchini. It just makes my mouth water talking about this meal. In the summer I love when Hubby throws everything on the grill and this is one of the better meals we have had. Don’t be afraid to throw not just the meat, but also all your vegetables on the grill. Summer means more grilling at our house. A perfect example was this lime and cumin rubbed flat iron steak, grilled corn on the cob with a lime and cumin butter, and grilled … Continue Reading →
