Not too long ago, I posted out the recipes I have on my site that were made with Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix. Or rather, my Homemade Onion Soup Mix recipe. There were quite a few more than I thought I had on my site, but there was one glaring omission. I’ve never posted it because it’s so easy, it’s hardly a recipe. It’s that Old Lipton Onion Soup Pot Roast Recipe from the 60’s.
I have finally found a burger that I just want to eat all the time. And I’m not normally a big burger person! These French Onion Soup Burgers are everything a burger should be!
They’re juicy and super flavorful and can I just say Caramelized Onions and melty Provolone or Gruyure and an Onion Bun just to drive those flavors home? Do I even need to say anything else?
Ok, guys, here it is, after the post on the Instant Pot Brown Rice to go in the Greek Brown Rice Salad & then the Greek Brown Rice Salad, to enjoy with the Spicy Beef & Feta Skewers, and now, finally, the Spicy Beef & Feta Skewers are here! Yeah, baby. It’s like the house that Jack built! Luckily, it’s worth it and all the components of this meal are pretty quick and easy.

I have seen so many articles and posts about Yaka Mein, ever since Anthony Bourdain featured Miss Linda Green on his show, “No Reservations.” But Yaka Mein first came on my radar in this article from Go Nola. I knew I just had to taste Yaka Mein and I knew the only way that was going to happen is if I made it myself. So here is my Instant Pot Yaka Mein. (Stovetop directions included, too.)
Yaka Mein has a long history so I’m not going to go too much into that because it’s been covered extensively elsewhere, like in this article from The Deep South. I am going to tell you to make it if I can be so bossy! And make it soon. There’s no need to lose another day without having Yaka Mein in your belly!
I thought I might have made a new invention when I made my Unstuffed Egg Roll Skillet Dinner not too long ago. See, I was going to make Egg Rolls, but for some reason, I was just ravenous.
Sometimes you just gotta have a steak. Like for Father’s day. And why not go big and bold on the flavors, like a New York Strip Steak with Southwestern Rub? Just a little something to give that steak a bit of a spark.
Cinco de Mayo is almost upon us, the day that commemorates the victory of the Mexican army over the French near the city of Puebla on 5 May 1862. In the U.S., Cinco de Mayo is a day to celebrate Mexican culture. If you know me, you gotta know that I’m down with that & I hardly need any excuse to whip up some Mexican food. I thought I’d celebrate the day with Rick Bayless Brick Red Mole napped over Shredded Barbacoa Beef Enchiladas.
Caldo de Res is usually a long-simmered beef Mexican soup made with shank, but today I wanted to show you a shortcut Caldo de Res you can get on the table quickly. And not to worry guys, I know I’ve been posting a lot of Mexican food! I’ll be mixing things up this week just in case you’re not the fan I am!
I would say I’m having a secret love affair, except it’s no secret that I’m loving my Instant Pot. And ya’ll probably know that I love Mexcian & Southwestern food. And I’ve been known to stop by Chiptole’s Mexican Grill now & then. So it was just a matter of time, eh? for this Instant Pot Chipotle Barbacoa Beef.
Guys, you all know I can get a little excited about food, right? Obs, this being a food blog. Sometimes I get really excited because everything in a dish comes together in some great magical alchemy. Spicy Steak Ramen Bowl with Chipotle Yum Yum Sauce is one of those.
Spicy Steak Ramen Bowls with Chipotle Yum Yum Sauce are an insane play of flavors. You’ll just have to try this, and it’s especially easy using just a bit of leftover steak.
If you’ve never had a Chicago Italian Beef Sandwich, you’ve been missing out. Really, Italian Beef Sandwiches are a bucket list recipe; everyone should experience them at least once in their lifetime.
In an unexpected twist, I fell in love with the Steak & White Cheddar Panini at Panera Bread. See, I have another “go-to” sandwich but when I was out with a friend, I followed her lead. Yeah, I’m a rule breaker these days! A rebel! It was so good, I’m glad I got out of my “rut” and I recreated it here, for you.
You might have noticed I haven’t posted an Instant Pot recipe for a while. I was in Georgia, visiting over the holidays, and no Instant Pot. Honestly, I went through withdrawal! But when I got back, and met a friend at Panera, I knew exactly what I wanted to make next! A 30 Minute Total Time Instant Pot Roast. So I could copycat those famous Panera Steak & White Cheddar Panini.
Beef can be pricey & a shame to waste but sometimes leftovers just stare at you saying “I’ll never be as good as the first night!” Wrong!
Fall comes, the leaves turn and at that first temperature drop, I seem to crave comfort food. I actually have a list. Well, not a formal one, but one in my head, and Beef & Barley Soup ranks high on that list.
If you’re looking for a simple dinner with flavor to die for, this is the one. Mexican Style Pot Roast. Perfect for a family, easy to make and a bounty of succulent, tender meat for dinner (and if there’s any left) some of the best leftovers, ever.
Ok, I love to cook. “Obs” as some of my young friends would say. Or I wouldn’t have a food blog. But sometimes you want something you can toss together with your eyes closed. Something simple and fast and easy – and maybe nostalgic? That’s where this Porcupine Skillet Dinner comes in.
Leftover Steak: Is it a thing? Maybe not often, but if yours is sitting there in the fridge, mocking you, saying “I’ll never be as good as the 1st night,” here are some fun, creative ways to refashion that steak into something marvelous.
Swiss Steak with Mushroom Gravy Instant Pot. So it all started when I asked the folks what they wanted for dinner. That’s like usually like pulling teeth, but there we were in August: temperature 96 degrees. My Dad immediately said “Swiss Steak.”
My folks love their nearby “Mongolian” Barbecue place, HuHot. They’re wild about it and so am I…but the cost makes me crazy, especially for what we get – which is delicious, no doubt, but is basically (for them) a big bowl of noodles with about an ounce of meat and for me mostly veggies. Could I do better at home? You tell me…
Unless you grew up around Mexican food, chances are your first introduction to it was probably the ground beef taco. And maybe you make them for your family – they’re fast, easy & everyone seems to love them from kids to kids at heart. I make a few different kinds of ground beef tacos, but these are our fave.
You’ve all heard me talking about my folks and their love for steak – and I think I’m being corrupted a bit! This Carne Asada is a steak I fell pretty hard for, done up today in taco form.
Yet again, I’ve been stuck with leftover steak, people! I know many of you never have that problem; “What leftover steak?” you’d say! And others might not have an issue with a little extra steak in the fridge! But leftover steak has always stumped me just a bit – it seems to sit there and say “I’ll never be as good as the first night.” Well, that’s what I thought until recently, anyway.
