Today’s Menu: Sea Salt Herb Rubbed Tri-Tip Buffalo Steak w/ Sliced Mushrooms, Baked Fingerling Potatoes, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

To start the morning off I prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 93 degrees and still humid. Spent the day at the Eye Doctor with Mom. She had cataracts removed from her right eye. She has the left one done in 2 weeks. Ling day, but worth it! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Sea Salt Herb Rubbed Tri-Tip Buffalo Steak along with Sliced Mushrooms, O’Brian Shredded Hashbrowns, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

 

For Dinner tonight I’m having a Wild Idea Buffalo – Sea Salt Herb Rubbed Tri-Tip Buffalo Steak. it comes packaged as 2 – 4 oz. steaks per package. It’s already Seasoned with Organic: Olive Oil, Sea Salt, Lemon Juice, Black Pepper, Sage, Thyme, Rosemary, Garlic, and Onion Powder.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I preheated the oven to 400°. In a Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to, I heated it over medium high heat. When ready I added my Steaks to it. I cooked the Steaks 1 minute each side. I just wanted a light sear on both sides. Then I moved the Skillet on to the preheated Oven and Roasted it for about 4 minutes. Removed the Skillet from the Oven and placed the Steaks on a plate and let them rest for 5 minutes before cutting. The Tri -Tip Steak was super tender and juicy. I had cooked to a medium rare and it came perfect!

 

 

I also prepared some Portabella Mushroom Slices. The slices were thick sliced extra large Portabella Mushrooms.I seasoned with Ground Smoked Cumin, Parsley, Sea Salt, and Ground Pepper. I lightly sautéed them in Extra Light Olive Oil and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I purchased these at Jungle Jim’s International Market.

 

 

 

 

 

Then for another side I prepared some Simply Potatoes O’Brian Shredded Hash Browns. I tried these for the first time the other day and love them! Perfect seasoning and fry up perfect. I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – JILL’S SEA SALT HERB RUBBED TRI-TIP STEAKS

We’ve taken this coveted chef’s favorite, hand cut them into 4oz. petite steaks, rubbed them with olive oil, and seasoned them with Jill’s special sea salt herb rub to maximize flavor and tenderness. Simply remove the steaks from the package and grill over a high heat for 2 minutes each side for a perfect medium rare. A delightful and light, summer time meal for two! (2 – 4 oz. steaks per pkg.)

Ingredients: 100% Grass-fed Buffalo, Organic: olive oil, sea salt, lemon juice, black pepper, sage, thyme, rosemary, garlic & onion powder.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried up some of the Baked Ham I had prepared yesterday. Then I also fried up an Egg Sunnyside Up, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 48 degrees and not quite as windy. The winds yesterday were strong and down right freezing! Mom wanted to go to Jungle Jim’s International Market, which I’m always ready to go to! The most incredible Market that I’ve ever seen or been to. The Deli, Meat, Produce, and Seafood Departments are 2nd to none. Love shopping there. Back home I put everything away. Then after Lunch we went up to spend the afternoon with Dad. So I’m making my 3 Bean Turkey Chili for Dinner! I prepared the Turkey and mixed the Beans last night. So this morning I already had the Crock Pot set up and ready along having the Turkey and Beans. So its my 3 Bean Turkey Chili and I made some Johnny Cakes for Dinner tonight.

 

To make my Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, Then I mix in 1 Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Seeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans), 1/2 Tsp Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweaks to it and it turns out delicious.

 

First thing I do is get the Crock Pot out and put in a Glad Crock Pot Liner. The Liners are incredible, just line your Crock Pot with one and spray it with Pam Cooking Spray. Now you are set to go. It makes for one easy clean up, just remove it when done and give the inside of your Crock Pot a quick wipe down and your clean up is done! On with the recipe.

 

 

 

I prepared the Beans and Ground Turkey last night. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Next I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Stored them in a bowl and in the fridge also. Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. I also added a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post.

 

 

 

Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Also a side of Johnny Cakes, recipe below.

 

 

To prepare the Johnny Cakes (I love these…) all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Low Fat Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. The Cornbread works perfect with Chili! I had a Diet Peach Snapple to go with my Dinner. I took some of the Johnny Cakes and 3 Bean Turkey Chili over to Dad at the rehab center, which he loved. For Dessrt tonight a bowl of Breyer’s Low Carb Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

Mushroom Wellington

Recipe Ingredients:
6 portabella mushrooms, stalks trimmed and cleaned
3 onions, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
3.5 ounces baby spinach
4 sprigs thyme
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, partially thawed
1 large egg, beaten
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions:
1 – Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C).
2 – Place a large frying pan over medium heat and add the olive oil. When the pan has come up to heat add the onion and reduce heat to low. Season with salt and ground black pepper and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. When caramelized, remove the onions from the pan and set aside.
3 – Return the pan to the heat and add the baby spinach and cook until wilted. Remove the baby spinach from the pan and set aside.
4 – Return the pan to the heat again and increase heat to medium. Add the butter and when the butter has melted and started to froth add the mushrooms, top side down, season with salt and ground black pepper, and cook for 5 minutes or until golden, before turning over. Once both sides have been browned remove from the heat and brush both sides of the mushrooms with the Dijon mustard.
5 – Place a sheet of baking paper on the baking tray and then place the puff pastry sheet on top. Spread the caramelized onions over the middle third of the pastry, making sure to leave 1-inch at the edges. Top with half the baby spinach and then the mushrooms. Top the mushrooms with the remaining baby spinach.
6 – Very carefully roll the pastry over the top of the mushroom mixture until you have a log. Tuck the edges under the pastry, ensuring the seam is facing the bottom.
7 – Cut 2 holes in the middle of the pastry to allow steam to escape and very lightly coat with the egg wash. Then place the pastry in the freezer for 10 minutes before repeating with another layer of egg wash and freezing the pastry for 10 minutes.
8 – Place the pastry back on the baking sheet and tray and place in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden.
Makes 4 servings.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Fresh Herbs or Dried Herbs…….

Fresh herbs can lose flavor when exposed to heat for long periods to time. For dishes that require a longer baking time of 1-2 hours, opt for dried herbs, which can withstand the heat.

Herbs…………

Crushing dried herbs before using them will boost their flavor, as will soaking them for a few seconds in hot water. This technique also works well with dried herbs that have lost their flavor.
