I clipped this recipe from Taste of Home magazine several years ago and have found it to be the best-tasting easy beef and broccoli stir-fry. It is credited to Ruth Stahl. I often use charcoal chuck steak, which is very tender and lean. I also like that it doesn't call for any unusual ingredients.
Amazing flavor, and so simple! No salt needed here. In fact, you may wish to use half the ranch dressing mix to cut back on the saltiness. Found this Crock-Pot pot roast recipe on of a website called www.recipegoldmine.com. It's all the rage there, so I thought I'd try it.
The best Corned Beef I've ever made was in the Crock pot. (You can substitute water for beer, but the flavor won't be the same)
NOTE: If you make more than 3-4 lbs., cook it on HIGH. I've made 6-7 lbs., and it won't be done after 9 hours on LOW.
ANOTHER NOTE: This makes wonderful sandwiches if you cook it, then chill it before slicing.
Over the years, I've taken ideas from many great cooks and have constantly changed how I cook a corned beef dinner. But for a couple of years now, I have done it exactly this way. It's now St Patricks Day 2005, and other members want me to get this down in writing ... so here goes.
This is true southern cuisine, the flavors in this recipe are a little more complex than the basic chicken fried steak. Not being a real Texan I don't like mine with gravy, but it would be blasphemy not to post the gravy recipe as well. This recipe also works well for venison (first soak meat in milk to remove the gamey taste). Makes excellent sandwiches the next day (serve leftovers on texas toast). Storing this recipe on Zaar cause I couldn't find it last time I had a craving!
We have given up all other meat loaf recipes for this one. I love the individual servings and every bite has the yummy catsup sauce where in "regular" meat loaf it's just a small strip on top! With the smaller loaves it also makes the cooking time a bit quicker. This recipe came from '99 TOH magazine but I added the rubbed sage for some extra flavor. Enjoy!
These are sooooo great (and EZ)! I grew up eating these about once a week and they are incredible with mashed potatoes or buttered egg noodles and a veggie. While this recipe is basically my mom's, I have changed one thing...instead of using chopped onion in the burgers, I use an envelope of onion soup mix...it gives them the PERFECT flavor! This is now one of my family's favorite meals...try it and it will probably become one of your's, too. P.S. These burgers also work for grilling (without the gravy :).
