Beef Stew, the Ol School Way

Using freshly grown from Garden (Thanks Momma!) Err-thang, but 4 ingredients is fresh.

6 mini Sirloin Steaks Salt and Peppered, allow to set in fridge.
Dip Steaks in Flour.
In pan (Large enough to fit vegis, too) Sear each side in heated Grapeseed Oil.
Remove Steaks from pan and set aside.
Add into pan (Do not clean Steak remnants):
Potatoes, Onions, Mushrooms, Minced Garlic, Carrots.
Sweat the vegis.
Add in 2 good pinches of Dried FRESH Rosemary and 1 good pinch of Thyme.
1 – 1.5tsp Salt.
Add in 1c Red Wine (Merlot).
COOK DOWN.
Mix 2c Beef Broth.
with with 2T Worcestershire (Or Balsamic Vinegar-I did Worcestershire).
Bring to a good boil. Add to warmed Crock Pot.
Stir in 2T Roasted Tomato Paste (I roasted in pan I used to cook meat/sweat vegis).
Cook on High 1st hour, then, low for 3 hours.

French Dip-wich

2.5lb Beef Roast, Salt and Peppered. Allow to sit about 20 minutes.
Premix Broth: 2c Beef Broth, 1 Garlic Clove (Minced), 1T Minced Dried Onions, 1tsp Dried Rosemary, 1tsp Dried Thyme, 4T Worcestershire.
Spray Instant Pot with Butter Flavor Cooking Spray. Add Premixed Broth and place in Roast. Pressure cook on high for 45 minutes. (It’s okay if it’s not done. We are simmering it next.)
Remove Meat from Juice, RESERVING the Broth Juice. Cut up Meat. Set aside. Add a drizzle of Olive Oil to skillet. Heat skillet, add 1T Tomato Paste and fry Paste up. Add in Meat and mix around with Paste. Add in 1 Au Jus Packet and mix around. Then, add in 2c Reserved Broth Juice (Use water to reach 2c, if not enough. *See Notes). Bring to boil, then, simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Optional to Melt Provolone on top. Serve on Buns. Dip in excess Juices.


Freezer friendly: Allow to cool some. Freeze. Add to Crock to heat up.

I was making this as a freezer meal for later time eatings. In making the above recipe, it gave me about 3c of Broth Juice reserved from the instant pot. So, I had about 1c Reserved Broth Juice left, outside from the 2c I needed for the French Dip recipe. Instead of tossing it, I used that leftover juice and cooked some Green Beans, from the garden, and Pork Steaks. Just added all to the skillet, and cooked down juices. It was delish.

NOTES: If a more tamed flavor is desired, use desired ratio of Reserved Broth Juice, with Water. Just simmer a lil longer when you mix with Paste and Au Jus. Example: Instead of 2c Reserved Broth Juices, use 1 1/2c Reserved Broth Juice with 1/2c Water.

Premix BBQ Sauce (Depending on how many legs you are cooking, you may need to double the batch, or so.) Set aside. GRILL Legs (Best on Charcoal Grill, if you know how to do it correctly! Grill Tip Below.). Near end, Brush BBQ Sauce on Legs, flip. Allow to cook a minute or two. Brushing BBQ on other side. Then, flip. Cook a minute or two, allowing to caramelize.

CRISPY Sweet Potato Fries:
crispysweetpotatofries

Sweet Potato, cut to fry size
Cold Water

Crisco Oil/ Deep Fryer

Seasoning: 
1 Beef Broth Cube, CRUSHED
1tsp Cajun Seasoning
1tsp Chili Powder
1/2tsp Mustard Powder
1/2tsp Pepper
1/2tsp Paprika
1/2tsp Garlic Powder
1/2tsp Onion Powder

At about 350-400, deep fry for about 6 minutes, or til LIGHTLY browned. Place onto paper toweled plate. Finish up batches. THEN, go back to first batch and RE-DEEP FRY for another few minutes. Place onto paper toweled plate and season well with Seasoning, I had leftover seasoning, so, DON’T USE ALL.

Charcoal Grilling Tip: If it tastes like straight up smoke… You’re doing it wrong! We build a hill in center of grill. Light charcoal (We used Regular Charcoal). Once coals are ashy grey, they are ready. Prop Grill Open, using a Slightly crushed pop can, ON IT’S SIDE. Chicken: Lay Chicken on outer part of grill (Outside hill). Once Chicken isn’t sticking to grate, so much, it’s ready to flip. Flip once, that’s it (Unless applying Sauce and Thickening the Sauce, that’s more flipping). Cook til Thermometer reads correct temp.

Please… Anything to make this process easier would be EXTREMELY appreciated! A loss is always horrible… A loss of a child is unbearable. Please… Help, help them. I’m sorry this happened to such a “Bright Star” and such a great Mother…You, her friends, and your families are in our thoughts and Prayers.
Please, any donation… NO MATTER HOW SMALL… Is SOMETHING! And, very much appreciated:
Help a family with the sudden and unexpected costs of giving one’s own Child the Memorial ANY Parent would want for a Life Celebration and a Goodbye for their Precious Child.

Creole Crab and Potato Salad

crabpotatosalad

Cooking Potatoes:
5 Potatoes (I used Golddust, what I had.)
1T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2T TONY’S Creole Seasoning
1/4tsp Pepper
1/4tsp Sea Salt

Sauce:
3/4c Miracle Whip
1/2tsp Worcestershire
1tsp Lemon Juice
1tsp Paprika
1tsp Mustard
1.5-2T Sweet Relish

3T REAL Bacon Pieces
4T Celery, minced
4T Sweet MINI Bell Peppers, chopped.
2T Onions, minced
1c Crab (I used imitation… I’m cheap!)

Boiled Eggs, sliced
Shredded Cheese

For HEAT Optional Adds: Louisiana Hot Sauce (Or, to top each Bowl), Minced Jalapenoes (Or, to top each bowl), Cayenne, Red Pepper Flakes

Cube Potatoes. Add Potatoes to ziploc bag. Add half Oil. Shake. Add in HALF Pepper, Creole, and Salt, shake. Add in Rest of Oil, then Season, shake. I allow to set/marinade 30minutes. Grill in Foil. (Or bake how desired).
I premake Sauce, and set aside til use. You can eat this salad warmed or cooled. If cooled (As most are): Grill or Bake Potatoes. Set into fridge to cool some. Mix with Sauce, stir in Vegis, NO LONGER THAN 30 minutes prior to serving. Top with Egg Slices and Shredded Cheese.

Optional to sprinkle top of Cheese, LIGHTLY, with Lawry’s Seasonal Salt, or More Creole. (I SKIPPED the extra salting).

Notes: I add Sauce close to serving time, due to Potatoes Eating Up Sauce. More flavorful that way.
