Crack slaw with pork. Seasoned with sesame oil, soy sauce, and garlic chili paste!






Chicken Curry, my first time making it! It was delicious!!!






A nice Ribeye with fresh steamed broccoli!





Also served with the ribeye, a nice caesar side salad!






Also served with the ribeye (Hey! I was hungry!) Homemade French onion soup! It was amazingly good and tasted very close to the one from Outback Steak house which I used to love! Oh and I only used a few ingredients, very easy!!!

Sure thing!

The recipe I made was enough for three half cup servings and it was sooooo good!

Ok

Half an onion sliced into strips
2 tbsp butter
1 can beef broth
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
salt and pepper to taste, you wont need much salt cuz of the beef broth

Either swiss, provolone, or gruyere or a mixture of all three



Sautee the onions in the butter until they are a deep golden brown.
Add the salt and pepper to taste, and the thyme
Add the can of beef broth and simmer for about 20 minutes until the soup reduces a bit.

Serve in ramekins or oven safe bowls, top with the cheese and place under broiler for a few minutes until the cheese bubbles.

HTH!


Its very very good!!!

Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!! I know this is going to be a favorite.

While waiting for the recipe, I had beef broth poured over pork rinds for lunch. It was pretty good, but I know I'll like your recipe better.

Thanks again.

Hi Tanner! Thank you for the compliment! The chicken curry recipe I used is

2 pounds boneless chicken thighs cut in cubes (you can also use chicken breasts if you like)
Half a large onion sliced in strips
3/4 cup heavy cream
3 teaspoons curry powder (you can add more to taste but I felt this amount was just right)
4 cloves of garlic minced
salt and pepper to taste


Cook the chicken thighs in a pan until golden brown.
Remove the chicken to a plate and add the minced garlic, curry powder, and onions to the pan.
Cook until the onions are soft and the curry is fragrant.
Add the heavy cream and simmer for a few minutes, the sauce will thicken as it simmers.
At this point taste the sauce and see if the taste is right for you. If not season with salt to taste.
Add the chicken back to the pan and simmer for about 2 minutes just so the chicken gets covered in the sauce.

Its a very easy recipe and its very good.

HTH!

agua, that looks like a feast! Why didn't you invite? French onion soup has always been something I've wanted to make but I thought it was time-consuming! Thanks for your recipe I will try it now.

I've made chicken curry TWICE! The first time it wasn't good enough for me but DH liked it. The second time was much better.

Hi Tempted by Food (love your handle!) .. . I posted the recipe on another thread; I pasted it here for you! Have a lovely day!


Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breast with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

Mushroom Sauce:

2 T. butter
2 Tablespoons onion, minced
1/2 lb crimini mushrooms, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup low sodium chicken broth
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
4 oz. cream cheese
lemon juice

Heat the butter until foamy. Add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook on high, stirring frequently until the mushrooms stop giving off liquid and the pan is almost dry. Add the garlic and stir quickly then add the chicken stock. Keep over high heat until the stock is reduced by about 1/2, whisk in the cream cheese. . it will take a few minutes to break up but be patient. Reduce the sauce until the bubbles thicken. Add a small squirt of lemon juice and taste to see if it needs more salt or pepper.

Parmesan Chicken Breasts

3 chicken breasts
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 egg
1 T. hwc
water
lemon zest
1 cup parmesan cheese (I used the real stuff but I am sure canned would work - you have to spread it on a sheet pan and let it rest out overnight so it "dries" out - if it's the shredded kind, run it through a food processor or spice grinder until it's the consistency of flour.)

Pound the chicken breasts until they are uniformly thin - I do this in a ziploc as the plastic is nice and strong. Season the chicken liberally with salt and pepper. Make an egg wash by whisking the egg, hwc and a small dash of water, add lots of freshly ground pepper and a little lemon zest to the egg wash. Dip the chicken into the egg wash, shake off excess and then dip into the parmesan cheese, patting the cheese into the chicken. Heat a non-stick pan and add about two tablespoons of olive oil, let heat until very hot and add a tablespoon of butter. Once the butter foam subsides, add the chicken breasts. Resist the urge to move them ..just let them be, over medium heat for about 9 minutes. Using tongs, gently flip the chicken over and continue to cook until cooked through.

Thank you so much for the compliment on my food!

Ive actually been trying to get a blog up but ive never really gotten around to it. Im gonna try to make one soon.

Ill keep ya posted!

Thanks

Hi Monkey!

Here is the recipe:

Creamy Pork Chile Verde

1 pork tenderloin (about 1 lb. 8 oz.)*
salt and pepper
olive oil
1/2 onion, finely diced
1 jalapeno, finely diced (if you like more spice, add more!)
2 cloves garlic, minced (I like to use my microplaner for this)
1/2 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 c. green salsa (I use Trader Joe's or Herdez both contain no sugar)
1 c. low sodium chicken stock
4 oz. Mexican crema or cream cheese

Heat the olive oil in a pot that has a cover. .. liberally salt and pepper the meat, brown evenly on all sides. Remove the meat from the pot, add the onion, chile, and garlic. Saute until the onion is translucent. Add the cilantro, and saute briefly. Add the meat back to the pot and add the salsa and chicken broth. Bring to a very gently simmer and cook, covered for about an hour. .until the meat pulls apart easily. Remove the meat and set aside to cool so you can shred it. Bring the sauce to a boil and reduce by half. Reduce the heat and whisk in crema (Mexican sour cream) or cream cheese, whisk until all is incorporated. Simmer gently until the bubbles thicken, taste for seasoning, add salt and pepper if needed and add the meat to heat through. I ate it with a little crema (you could sub sour cream), some diced avocado and fresh cilantro leaves. I won't lie and say I didn't miss the tortillas but it was still very good.

* you can use a fattier cut such as boneless country ribs or pork shoulder pieces but you would need to cook it a lot longer and I find the finished product to be greasy. . . even if I degrease the sauce.
