This elegant dinner comes together in less than 30 minutes, and is a fabulous dinner to serve for date night at home, or for a dinner party, and even if you’re doing dinner solo it’s still an awesome meal to enjoy – just adjust the ingredient quantities.
When I moved to Oklahoma from Florida, I learned “Okies” love their chicken fry. In fact, if you ask someone who has ever traveled old Route 66 from Miami (Okies pronounce this My-am-uh) to the town of Texola what’s the worst food you can eat they’ll likely say “chicken fried steak”. The best thing you can eat on Route 66? That would also be chicken fried steak. As contradictory as it may seem it’s true!
I tried to lighten this dish up by air frying, but feel free to grab a cast iron skillet and cook these steaks up too!
A recent video on TikTok purports to make an amazing steak by submerging steak in olive oil, cooking slow, and doing a flash sear at the end. This is my unique twist. I reserved the leftover pesto and tossed with cooked tortellini, and topped with steak..
Recently a small cooking video surfaced on TikTok, where the submitter effectively poached a steak in oil in the oven. If you want a steak similar to “steak confit,” this is my version. I served my steak on top a chopped salad.
In my vocabulary “daylight saving time” is a curse word, and your (wrong) clock doesn’t change when the sun sets or rises! That said, I cranked up the caffeine to make up for the lost hour during last daylight savings time day. Play around with this drink like the clock, and add Kahlúa® if you want! Plan ahead.
We have a local Cajun restaurant with a delicious dish called St.Charles chicken, and while they serve there’s with mashed potatoes and vegetables, pasta can be easily substituted for the mashed potatoes.
Assorted toppings like sliced avocado, shredded cheese, crema Mexicana, black olives, and jalapeño elevate this shredded beef to a perfect slider suitable for the big game day.
Move over Hamburger Helper™, there’s a new player in town and it is just as quick as a boxed meal, but better! I use tomato powder (it’s not as messy as tomato paste, but feel free to use tomato paste). I do not recommend regular sour cream as it tends to curdle. Garnish with additional cheese and crema.
These apple cider donut bites have a delightful autumn flavor thanks to the incorporation of apple pie spice and sparkling apple cider. Plan ahead as it requires a silicone mold, which can be bought from Amazon. I got a total of 21 bites, your serving size may vary.
This tortellini soup is comforting on a cold, blustery day. Cooked in the Instant Pot®, you can have a bowl full of hearty soup in under an hour.
