Today’s Menu: Beefy Potato Salad with Green Beans w/ Sourdough Baked Bread

 

 

 

 

A very long day. We had to admit my Dad into the hospital again, pneumonia again. Plus they informed us that after getting rid of the pneumonia he’ll have to go into rehab for a while to build his strength back up. So for dinner I wanted to make a good hot meal for my Mom after she got back from being at the hospital all day. So I prepared a new recipe for dinner Beefy Potato Salad with Green Beans along with baking a California Sourdough Bread Loaf.

 

 

I came across this recipe on one of my email newsletters from Potato Goodness web site, which is full of some great recipes. I did make Beefy potato Salad 002a change in the recipe, I didn’t have a Vinaigrette Dressing so I used a Ken’s Steakhouse Lite Northern Italian With Basil and Romano Dressing and Marinade. It worked out great as the marinade! Fantastic flavor and only 45 calories and 1 carb per serving. I also used Canola Oil instead of Vegetable Oil. I used a Walmart Top Sirloin 1 1/2 lb Steak that I trimmed and sliced into thin strips. I then put it in a Hefty Zip Bag and added my Ken’s Marinade and then refrigerated it for about 2 hours or so. To prepare it I needed 1 pound beef top sirloin, cut 3/4 to 1 inch thick, 1/2 cup prepared vinaigrette dressing with Parmesan cheese (Ken’s Lite), divided, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (Canola Oil), divided, 3 cups frozen cut green beans, and 1 package (1-1/4 pound) refrigerated prepared potato wedges.

 

 

Then to prepare it I heated 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Added green beans; stir-fry 5 minutes. Added remaining 1 tablespoon oil and potatoes; continue stir-frying 4 to 6 minutes or until the potatoes and green beans are heated through and starting to brown. Remove from skillet; kept warm. Then heated the same skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add 1/2 of beef; stir-fry 1 to 3 minutes or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink. (Do not overcook.) Remove from skillet; add to vegetable mixture. Repeat with remaining beef. Add remaining 1/4 cup dressing to beef and vegetables; toss to coat thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Serve warm or at room temperature. This makes on delicious and light meal! My Mom really enjoyed it after her long day at the hospital with my Dad. I also heated up a California Sourdough Loaf of Bread, that I had purchased from Kroger bakery. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

  1. Mmmm, that does look good! I would probably like it better warm, since I’m not crazy about potatoes at room temperature.
    Off-the-subject question for you, Mark:
    You “liked” a picture of an old car that I had in a post awhile back (thank you!). I was wondering, since this has happened before where people “liked” a picture that I had in a post: are these pictures showing up as posts, or is somebody just finding the pictures in the posts and liking them? When I get the email about it, the title of the email says something like, “Ohiocook liked your post, ‘car06′” or whatever the name of the picture was. I am just worried that my photos are randomly getting posted as posts in themselves for some reason.
    Thanks!

      • Hmmm, okay, thanks Mark. This just baffles me since I never posted those pictures as posts on their own. I will have to contact WordPress and see what’s going on. Thanks so much for the heads-up, Mark!

  2. Thanks for your marvelous posting! I seriously enjoyed
