Portabello Burgers were something that seemed logical to try during our 30 days of vegan. People always describe portabello mushrooms as being very “meaty”, so it wasn’t a big leap to plan to marinate and season the mushrooms and put them on the grill. They even almost look like burgers when they’re on the buns. The most important part of this is that these portabello burgers are delicious. Everyone in our family really enjoyed them, and since I made extra, I took them to work and shared with my coworker who also gave the recipe a thumbs up. Turning a […]
Carrot Hot Dogs are something that our friends have repeatedly asked if we have tried during our 30 days of vegan. To be honest, we had never heard of the carrot hot dog, so it wasn’t something we had planned to prepare. We had planned to grill some portabello mushrooms to use in place of burgers, but carrot hot dogs weren’t on our radar. After the fifth or sixth time that someone asked, we decided we needed to plan a weekend barbecue and serve carrot hot dogs. There was just one problem. I had no idea what spices were used […]
Sum Gum is a simple and delicious combination of ground beef, green beans, rice, and Asian inspired seasonings, and it’s a perfect simple supper. The best part is that it can all be prepared in one skillet, as long as you have some leftover rice in the refrigerator. I love meals that don’t make a big mess, and they’re a real winner when my family likes it. This recipe definitely fit the bill.
Beef and Green Bean Teriyaki is a simple, delicious, and kid friendly meal. The ingredients are readily available. It’s easy to prepare, and makes a perfect meal for a busy weeknight. Beef and Green Bean Teriyaki is made from lean ground beef, and when served overnight is a very filling meal.
Flank steak is the perfect meat for grilling quickly at a high temperature, and it’s made better by marinating it. All you need is to mix up a few common pantry ingredients, pour them over the steak, and allow the steaks to marinate. I usually allow flank steak to sit in the marinade overnight, but it can also be marinated for as little as two to three hours. To have a freezer meal, place the bag with the steak and marinade in the freezer until you’re ready to grill it. Yes, I said that you can put the marinated steak […]
At the beginning of the summer grilling season, I posted my recipe for teriyaki sauce, but if you’re looking for a way to whip up some teriyaki flavored burgers without having to first whip up a batch of teriyaki sauce, this recipe is for you. All you need is a mug, a bowl, 5 items you probably already have in your kitchen, and 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef to grill up some of the most delicious teriyaki burgers you will ever taste. Children always love these.All you do is mix soy sauce, sugar, wine vinegar, garlic powder, and sesame […]
I am always looking for new ways to prepare fish. Sue Chef loves salmon, so I try to find new ways prepare it for her. This recipe is a modification of my teriyaki sauce recipe. Teriyaki salmon is delicious, but we wanted to try something different. I had seen Maple Mustard Salmon on a menu at a local restaurant and decided to attempt to recreate it. Since I didn’t order the salmon dish, I can’t tell you whether I succeeded in duplicating it, but I can tell you that this recipe makes a delicious glazed salmon that was a hit […]
Last week, I published my recipe for Teriyaki sauce. This week, I want to share some of the ways I use that recipe to make Teriyaki Chicken. It’s not uncommon for me to put all of the teriyaki sauce ingredients into a zip top bag before adding chicken. I put this bag into the freezer so that I have ready made teriyaki marinated chicken which can be cooked in a variety of different ways. One of the easiest ways to prepare this chicken is on the stove top. Put the chicken along with the marinade into a large diameter pan […]
I love teriyaki. In fact, it’s one of my favorite ways to season chicken and burgers, but I don’t like to buy teriyaki sauce. It can be expensive, and there is no reason to spend money to buy the pre-made sauce. Teriyaki is one of the easiest sauces to make because it is made from ingredients that most people already have on hand. The sauce can be used as a marinade or thickened to be brushed on like a barbecue sauce. Sometimes, I have been known to do both. Pouring this sauce over chicken pieces before freezing provides you with […]
Since Saint Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, my local grocer has had some excellent prices on cabbage. Since I always try to shop sales, I picked up a couple of extra heads. Cabbages tend to store for a much longer time than heads of lettuce. Historically, they were stored for long periods hung upside down by their roots in an outside building or mulched in the gardens for families to enjoy well into the winter. Unfortunately, the cabbage you buy at your local grocer has been far too abused to last that long, but they will last for […]
