That Old Lipton Onion Soup Pot Roast Recipe

That Old Lipton Onion Soup Pot Roast Recipe

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.

New Orleans Instant Pot Yaka Mein - Stovetop directions, too.

Instant Pot Yaka Mein

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!

Ropa Vieja. Translates to old clothes or old rags – gosh that name just does not do this lovely meal justice! Slowly simmered beef, simmered until it’s all but fallen apart, with garlic and cumin and aromatics. And peppers. Oh my.

Beef & Guinness Stew Pies

Beef & Guinness Pies

The BEST Beef & Guinness Stew. One glorious concoction that rides the line between the richness of the stew & the bitterness of the Guinness...perfectly balanced.

This Beef & Guinness Stew is a wondrous thing – a rich, heady stew that rides the fine line between the richness of the gravy and slight bitterness of the Guinness; a stew that balances so closely neither sweet or bitter is detected; instead all melds into one glorious and delicious concoction. Even better, it’s topped off with puff pastry! (If you want to, and I know you do! Or maybe that’s just me?) Let’s just say if you do, you’ll look like a genius when you bring this to the table!

Pot Roast done perfectly tender, silky, a rich gravy.  Is there anything better? Here’s one that’s full of flavor, a play off of the Flemish Stew with beer, Beouf Carbonnade. If that sounds too fancy, just call it Beer Braised Pot Roast. Does a roast with any other name still smell as good? Oh, that’s Rose? Silly me…

The BEST beef stew, with wine or not, with bacon or not. Serve over mashed or noodles.

Beef Stew with Wine (or not) and Bacon

this really is the BEST stew - adapted from Cook's Illustrated, make it with wine or use substitutions

I love stew in the winter, whether made in the oven, on the stove or in a crock-pot whether made with potatoes or served over potatoes (or even noodles), whether with wine or without, or even with beer.  I can hardly wait for a lazy snowy day to make stew, and when winter is over, I always wish I would have made more.
