Broiled Steak….What!?

While in Colorado we were trying to plan our menu so that we didn’t have many leftovers to lug home, and we don’t have all of the state of the art cooking materials up in the cabin so we had to take it back to the old school days. My mom grew up on a ranch in a little poe dunk town so she had the brilliant idea of broiling some steaks, baking some taters, and boiling some fresh green beans. So that is just what we did!

How to Broil a steak!
Well this all depends on how you like your steaks, and how thick your steaks are. For me I like my steaks medium rare and the particular steak that I was cooking was just about an inch thick and weighed about 6 ounces. So what you do is season your meat however you like it (we did salt, pepper, and garlic) and then turn your oven on lo broil and cook for 6 minutes on each side! Waaahhhlaaa! you have one juicy yummy steak! just cook evenly on both sides to your desired temperature!

For the potatoes I preheated the oven to 400, washed my skins, rubbed them with a little oil and then set them directly on the rack or in a pan to prevent messes, no foil!!, and baked them for 45 minutes to an hour, this will allow the skin to get crispy and the insides to be all soft and gooey!

For the green beans I went to the store and bought some fresh green beans and snapped them and removed the stems. Filled a pot with water, diced some garlic, cut up two pieces of bacon, added some salt and pepper to taste, brought it to a boil, covered and let it simmer for about an hour or until everything is done and they are too your desired tenderness!

You can never go wrong with steak and taters!!! Yum Yum! Quick and delicious!

Paleo “pizza” chili!!

Okay so since I have all these allergies and I can’t have all of that delicious American fries greasy food I have to settle for paleo style pizza chili to get my fix in! It is absolutely delicious and fills my void perfectly! I think this is a dish for repeat, it can serve a lot of people, you can fill it with all your favorite pizza toppings , and the kids will love it too! ( much healthier than the real thing!)

Ingredients for my family…
2 pounds hamburger meat
1 bell pepper chopped ( I did half green pepper half red pepper)
1 onion chopped
3 garlic cloves chopped
2 cans muir glen pizza sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon oregano dried
1 cup beef broth or water
Now pick your favorite ingredients to top your “pizza” I chose green chiles, mushrooms, and black olives, an some chopped up Applegate pepperoni ! You could choose bacon, chicken, ham, pineapple, jalopenos, diced tomatoes, spinach….whatever you want!!!

Now brown your meat and Hal way through browning add in your garlic onion and bell peppers… Then put your meat mixture in a big stock/soup pot and add all of your other ingredients, stir it all up, bring it to a boil cover it with a lid and let it simmer for an hour or 30 minutes if you are pressed for time! If you can have cheese in your diet add it to the top at the end!!

Yummy! Happy Tuesday!!

If you want to do in the crock pot then you will just add all your ingredients and cook on low 4-6 hours or meat is cooked through.

It is pretty sweet so if your not use to sugar be careful, it will satisfy your sweet tooth!

Tessemae’s!

One of the most annoying thing about having so many food allergies is not being able to have dressing or being able to find a one that tastes good and still meets all your dietary needs. Well after years of searching and trying I have found the ULTIMATE dressings. I absolutely love them! There is a sweet family that has taken on the challenge to provide homemade dressing to people all over the USA! My personal favorites are the Hot wing dressing, I like to put this on turkey like a buffalo wing taste! so good and satisfies that wing craving! Then there is the cracked pepper, it has the best flavor, I love pepper, I put it on nearly everything so naturally its one of my favorites. Then the is the KING of them all, there is the Zesty Ranch, who doesn’t like ranch these days! I mean I know people that seriously put it on everything! There are many other flavors to choose from but these are my top three favorites. The great thing about it is you can also use them for marinades and sauces for other dishes as well! Be Creative!

Here is the Link to the Website!

Order some and and try them out! It’s worth it! I promise!

They will even write you a hand written note! How cool! Check it out!
