Mongolian Beef and Broccoli June 1, 2019
In September 2018, I made this fantastic Mongolian Beef and Broccoli. I was looking in my files for a new main dish and found this recipe. I don’t recall who sent me the recipe; here is a big “Thank you!” to whoever created this wonderful dish.
The beef and broccoli is so easy to throw together; combined everything in the crock pot and let it do the work. It is packed full of flavor and the leftovers are delicious!
If you eat gluten-free, watch out for soy sauce because it may have gluten in it.
You have got to try this recipe, it is wonderful!
Mongolian Beef and Broccoli
1 pound flank steak cut into strips
16 oz frozen broccoli
4 scallions (We used 1 tsp dried onion flakes)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup light soy sauce (careful of gluten)
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup cornstarch
- Spray the crock pot with Pam
2. Place the meat, broccoli and onions into it.
3. In a bowl mix together everything but the cornstarch. Slowly mix the cornstarch into the soy sauce mixture. Then pour it over the steak an veggies and mix it up well.
4. Cook on low for 4 hours or on high for 2 hours.
We served it over brown rice.
Fiesta Chicken April 16, 2018
This year has been crazy…But we’re back with a delicious recipe!
My sister found this delicious Mexican meal that you can make in your crock pot. It would be perfect for lunch or dinner. It is so easy to throw together; feel free to add other ingredients if you’d like. 😊
We served it over rice, but it would be delicious in a burrito, hard or soft taco shells, topping tortilla chips, and maybe even on a salad. The options are endless for this meal.
Give it a try, it is fantastic!
Layer in crock pot in the following order:
1 package frozen shredded chicken
1 Bag frozen corn
1 can black beans, drained
1 (8 oz) block cream cheese
1 packet fiesta ranch mix
1 Layer everything in crock pot on high, for 4 hours.
2 Stir once cream cheese has melted which is usually about 2 or 3 hours.
3 Let it marinate 30 minutes to 1 hour; whatever you think it needs.
4 Serve over rice, make burritos, inside hard or soft taco shells, over tortilla chips, or topping salads.
Easy Cheesy Penne August 20, 2017
The last month has been crazy! I finished my novel and signed with a publisher; the blog has taken a back seat.
My dad is the hero for this month; he saw this recipe on social media and made it for us today. We adapted the recipe, by using Gluten Free Penne, not using mushrooms, using onion flakes and changing the herb to oregano. This recipe is easy to throw together because the slow cooker does all the work!
We served the penne with cooked vegetables. Use a 5 quart or larger slow cooker.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did. It’s delicious!
