Copycat Panera Steak & White Cheddar Panini

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.

Mongolian Barbecue Noodle Bowls

You practically make it at the restaurant, why not make it at home - for a fraction of the cost! https://frugalhausfrau.com/

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…

California Steak Salad with Sweet/Spicy Asian Vinaigrette

I don’t know why this Steak Salad is called “California” Steak salad, but I bet those “California cows” aren’t too happy about that turn of events! I think it’s because of the avocado. Regardless of how happy this particular cow was, this salad is delish!

Teriyaki Marinated Steak

There was a time when Flank steak was cheap! And so it goes with sudden popularity – a rise in price. Never mind that, though, because back in the day my Mom made this recipe with the elusive “London Broil.” Well, “almost” this recipe because I’ve upped the game and the flavor on this old workhorse recipe.

Coffee Coriander Rubbed New York Strip Steak

I can be a bit of a snob about steak; see I grew up in an area when some of the best beef is produced. Yeah, Northwest Iowa!! But sometimes you just want a steak and you don’t want to pay an arm and a leg. And sometimes those less expensive grocery store or “no name” steaks- well frankly, they can use a little help.
