General cooking thread.


Recommended Posts

We love anything Mexican in our house. This week Kroger had a special on turkey burger so I bought 3lbs. and before last night it's always the same prep on stovetop. First time I ever cooked turkey burger in slow cooker and honestly I don't think I'll go back to range anytime soon. 

3lbs turkey burger, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, cayenne, and 2 seasoning packets along with 2 cups of salsa poured over top. Low cook for 6 hours and done. I would break up the meat every couple of hours otherwise it turned out great. I was hesitant in slow cooker for ground beef but won't go back to the range anytime soon.

Bringing this one over from the Crock Pot thread from days of yore...

I know a lot of folks on here grew up in Indiana, so here's an Indiana staple...Beef and noodles. Never seen it anywhere else, but my Mom made it on a regular basis when I was a kid...I made up this crock pot recipe a few years back...easy-peasy

The Crock-Pot method.

32 oz of beef broth 

2-3 lb chuck roast 

24 oz bag if Reames frozen egg noodles

Put the roast in the crock pot and cover it with the beef broth

Cook low for 7 hours 

Shred the roast 

Dump the Reames noodles in and cook on low for an additional 90 minutes

Best over mashed potatoes (starch city, baby)

Just had homemade shrimp tacos and elote.  Alot of meals anymore we just make up our own recipes using what's in the house. 

For the Elote we used a bag of frozen corn, onion, red bell pepper, yellow squash, cilantro, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne, half a lime juiced, and believe it or not parmesan cheese. 

Parmesan is a substitute for cojita cheese which we didnt have. 

Cooked it up in a cast iron using avocado oil. Turned out really well. 

Just makes me impatient for fresh sweet corn.😬

Making a homemade marinara tonight and I... nailed it!

I've started cooking a lot more the last two years and am really enjoying it. Very (very) slowly, I'm starting to build a rotation of good dishes.

What are some of your faves?

Oven roasted fennel and beets is a go to side for me. Olive oil, salt and pepper, 15 ish minutes on 400 degrees.

We made a homemade marinara the other night for our meat ball subs. Solid stuff, man. 

-Spaghetti... cook slice mushroom, green peppers, and onions IN the sauce. Put the veggies in raw. I cook a pound of burger and put in there later on in the process. Cook the noodles, yadda yadda. I like some sort of bread with it... even just regular white bread with garlic powder and butter isn't bad. 

-Smoked Chili-- Idk if you have a smoker, but it's good shit. 

-Burgers- I make them about 5 or 6 different ways. 

-Chicken Pesto sammies-- with a hot pepper mix on a bun. Damn good

-Nashville hot chicken sammies-- pickle, mayo, my wife's favorite 

-Smoked meatballs (subs)-- solid and easy. 

-Stuffed peppers in the insta pot

-Stir fry or Hibachi on my blackstone-- usually make a homemade yum yum sauce

-I meal prep breakfast for the week a lot of times, as well. pound of sausage crumbled up, browned with onions and garlic powder, throw A LOT of eggs with it, green/red peppers.... use it for breakfast burritos to just warm up. Add a slice of cheese to it. Or I will patty the sausage and do English Muffin breakfast sandwiches. Always toast the muffins on the blackstone. 

-I'll be real... when are in a pinch or simply don't want to cook that much for the week.... we might take 2lbs of burger and make a double batch of hamburger helper, or 3 cans of tuna and make a double batch of Tuna helper. No idea what your taste buds are like, but I actually don't make it at all lol 

 

oh... and Tacos. Do a lot of tacos... lots of different ways to do those, too. Cook those on the blackstone.
