When I was looking for a recipe for the simple stew I grew up with, a friend came through for me, the same friend who passed on what has become our family’s favorite Thanksgiving stuffing. Here’s the recipe for the easiest stew, ever, Old Fashioned Beef Stew. You might see this same stew sometimes called Five Hour Stew and you’ll see why soon enough!
I’ve seen quite a few versions of Stir-Fried Beef & Potatoes and quite a few photos, and this recipe for my version, Vietnamese Beef & Potatoes Bo Xao Khoai Tay seems to be different. It’s how the Chef at my favorite Vietnamese restaurant in the Twin Cities makes their Vietnamese Beef & Potatoes and it is utterly crave-worthy!
Swiss Steak with Mushroom Gravy Instant Pot Version. 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.”
Do any of you guys have that one Aunt? The one that always made you feel special and had just a little something extra to her personality? Mine was my Aunt Ginny, my Dad’s sister. She was definitely the fun Aunt, and she was fabulous. And she was a fabulous cook, too. I have a couple of her recipes on my site but my favorite is The Best Beef Stroganoff.
So often one thing leads to another, and so it was when I made Shrimp & Grits with a Cajun Gastrique not too long ago! My sister came to visit shortly after and while she missed the Shrimp and Grits, she proposed we make New Orleans Grillades & Grits. It was a good call and we were off on yet another New Orleans inspired adventure!
