Help Wanted: Recipes with 5 ingredients or less.

Ok, I'm borrowing the idea for this thread from something that used to be in past amazing posts many moons ago.

I need ideas here. Those of us on a tight grocery budget could use the help in narrowing the grocery list.

It would be great if we got enough to make this a sticky. I'll start us off with this one.

Chinese Boiled Chicken with Onions
(Chow Yow Gai)

1 3 to 3-1/2 pound chicken
2 bunches of cleaned green onions
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 cup peanut oil, heated to smoking point
Salt to taste

1 Fill a large kettle with water, and bring it
to a boil. Place the chicken in the boiling
water. When the water stops boiling, take out
the chicken. Cover the pot, and when the water
boils again, place the chicken back in the pot.
Cover. Turn off the burner. Leave the bird in
the pot and the pot on the burner. After 1 hour
the chicken is done. Remove, and cool.
2 Debone the chicken, and tear the meat into
small strips. Place them on a large platter.
Clean the green onions, and split each onion
down the middle. Then cut them up into 1/2-inch
pieces, and place over the mound of chicken.
Pour the soy sauce and sesame oil over the chicken.
Pour the salt over the onions. When you are ready
to serve, pour the hot peanut oil over the onions
and chicken. Toss like a salad. Serve.

Props to The Frugal Gourmet. Legal Chinese!
No no you see the rules of language are purely arbitrary stodgy ivory-tower crap we doesn't have to worried aboard because everytime history on you rebendible sausage mountain.

Steak Tips

1 lb steak (tenderlion is best but also $$$- I usually use sirloin)
Cut into bit size pieces
1 can mushrooms, stems and tops
1 can beef gravy (lowest carb you can find)
1 tsp beef stock (the paste kind)
fresh garlic to taste

Saute the steck until it is brown on all sides. Cook remaining ingredients in separate pan until slightly boiling and remove from heat. Mix together with steak and sontinue cooking for 15-20 minutes on med heat, of throw in a crockpot and turn on low for the day.

I love this stuff- that beef stock really makes the difference!

Here's one:

* Exported from MasterCook *


Recipe By :
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Beef Crock

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4lb Beef short ribs
1/4c Chopped green pepper
10 1/2 oz Can beef consomme
1 1/4oz Pkg. Taco seasoning mix

In a large skillet , brown short ribs;
pour off excess fat. Mix beef consomme with dry taco mix; add green pepper. In crock-pot pour sauce over the ribs. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Makes 5-6 servings.....

I haven't tried this one but it sounds good.

and one more:

* Exported from MasterCook *


Recipe By :
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Crockpot Main Dish

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 Cut up chicken
1 c Water
1/2 c Vinegar
1/4 c Soy sauce
2 Cloves sliced garlic

Put all in crockpot; cook for 6 to 8 hours on low.

I've made this, but not in a crockpot. For such simple ingredients, it's awfully good! I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Whole leg quarters would work too. Wait for a sale....save money.

Mexican Meatloaf

2 lbs ground beef
3 T low carb taco seasoning (i'll post my version of LindaSue's)
1 small onion chopped very fine
jalepenos to taste
1-2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar
1-2 cans enchilada sauce (medium) optional
3 eggs (for binding the meatloaf)

Mix all together, bake for 1 hr.. or until done. You can make this in little mini loaves and it cooks faster and is ready for freezing.

Taco Seasoning recipe *this is my version of LindaSue's recipe*

This recipe makes enough for about 6 batches of taco meat:

2 T. chili powder
5 t. paprika
4 1/2 t. cumin
1 T. onion powder
1 T. salt
2 1/2 t. garlic powder
1 t garlic salt
1 t. cayenne
2 t. cilantro

Mix and store in a small jar. Mix well before measuring. Makes 24 teaspoons.

I can be powerful or I can be pitiful! I choose powerful!

There is a lady here in Wa who has done a series of 5 ingedients or less cook books. I talked to her last year and she said that with everyone talking low carb, she was looking into writing one. I hope so, her other books are great.
