When I made this Instant Pot Pork Chop One-Pot Meal the first time, we had just gone from a few lovely, warm fall days perfect for walks down tree-lined paths in the crunchy leaves to fall with a vengeance here in the Twin Cities. Windy, cold & blustery.
I’m always looking for something fun to do with my leftover Corned Beef. I know it’s always good the next day just as is, but we so seldom have Corned Beef I really like to do something special. These Corned Beef Fritters are it!
Mashed potatoes have to be my ultimate comfort food – if I were stranded on a desert island and had a choice of only one thing to eat, potatoes would probably be my first choice. And if I were watching what I eat but still wanted hearty potato flavor? I’d choose to make Simple Rustic Mashed Potatoes. Umm. wait! I need a little milk and a smidge of butter, too. And salt, please? Dang, maybe I should have just chosen ice-cream after all!
I grew up in a small little town in Northwest Iowa that was settled by Irish immigrants. And even though I don’t remember my Mom ever making a Classic Shepherds Pie, I know I had it at friend’s houses. It was just kind of a staple that pretty much everyone made.
