I’ve had Feijoada on my mind for a long time. I made Feijoada years ago but it was one of those “Hey, it’s not you, it’s me” kind of things. It was ok, but not great. It wasn’t until I tasted a lot more Brazilian food that I “got” not just the flavor but the spirit of the dish and what a difference that has made. But guess what? This time I did it in my Instant Pot. And it was easy! So here, for your dining pleasure is Instant Pot Brazilian Feijoada!
I remember way back when I first started cooking hams, they were so confusing. There were so many different kinds and there never seemed to be any standards and often no directions. Well, this ham, Easy Pineapple Glazed Ham is so easy, even if your ham has the directions attached, toss them out.
We took a departure this year during Thanksgiving and made something entirely different than we’ve ever done before. We made a Slow Cooker Stuffed Pork Loin. But what makes this pork loin especially delish (and especially Thanksgiving like) was that I stuffed it with my Sister’s Ridiculously Delish Thanksgiving Bacon Stuffing. This pork loin would be a beautiful thing for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s or any fall through winter dinner party.
I gotta tell ya before any holiday, things can get hectic! I know I probably don’t have to say that, because you’re living it, too. But add kids into the mix and all of their activities, all of your activities, all the preparations for Christmas, buying, wrapping, decorating, baking, cleaning and maybe getting ready to travel and it can get hard to even pull off dinner. That’s when you need 10 No Effort Meals!
If you’re looking for a quick and easy toss together dinner that tastes like you slaved over it, you might wanna check out this easy and fast One Skillet Chicken Stroganoff. It’s creamy comfort food at it’s best. Tender chunks of chicken, golden brown mushrooms and noodles enveloped in a silky, creamy sauce, it’s a play off of the traditional Beef Stroganoff. And it’s all done in one skillet! Ya gotta love that.
