Season your Roast before searing……….

Even if your recipe doesn’t call for it, rubbing the roast with salt and pepper (and other optional dried herbs and spices) before searing it adds extra flavor to the meat as well as to the finished dish.

Bring on the Seasoning…………

Ground Beef alone makes a pretty dull-tasting Hamburger, so make sure the Meat is mixed throughout with at least Salt and Pepper. Other ingredients, like Worcestershire Sauce, Hot Sauce, Grated Onions, or Lipton Onion Soup Mix will improve not only the taste but also the juiciness of your Hamburgers.

Bison Filet Mignon w/ Oven Roasted Cauliflower and Roasted Butternut Squash

Today’s Menu: Bison Filet Mignon w/ Oven Roasted Cauliflower and Roasted Butternut Squash

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a mix of snow, sleet, and rain today. Had a high of 37 degrees. Bitter cold weather moving in over the weekend they say. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and later cleaned and straightened the Pantry. I hired a an Awning and Roof Company to put braces underneath the top of the Car Port Awning. There’s been 4 houses where the Car Ports have crumbled because of the heavy wet snows. Plus it’s very old so hopefully this will prevent it from collapsing. For Dinner tonight its a Bison Filet Mignon w/ Oven Roasted Cauliflower and Roasted Butternut Squash.

 

 

 


When having Buffalo (Bison) I usually have Wild Idea Buffalo but tonight I tried the Buffalo Gal Bison Filet Mignon Steak. I had a Gift Certificate for Buffalo Gal so I thought I would give it a try. I prepared it the same way as I do the Wild Idea Buffalo. Salt, Pepper, Extra Light Olive Oil, and in a Cast Iron Skillet.

 

 

 

 

 


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. Wow, what a juicy and tender Bison Steak! Excellent flavor, I will be having these again!

 

 

 

 

I had purchased a package of Cauliflower from Kroger the other day. We love Cauliflower, I just don’t prepare it near enough. To prepare it I’ll need; McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Butter. Then to prepare it Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spread the cauliflower on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven, turning once with a spatula, until golden brown at the edges and cooked to desired tenderness, about 20 minutes or so. You can drizzle it with melted butter or a light coating of Wing Sauce before serving. Cauliflower is so delicious, even an easy recipe like this!

 


Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 1 small package of Diced Butternut Squash at Kroger. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Walnut Pieces, Bacon Pieces, 1 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

 


To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash. What a Meal! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is a Spanish Potato Skillet. If you’re a Potato Lover like myself you’ll love this week’s recipe of Spanish Potato Skillet! White Potatoes, Onions, Eggs, Salt, Pepper, Hot Red Pepper Sauce, and Flat Leaf Parsley make up this Dish. Where’s the Meat? Who cares! It’s from one of my favorite Recipe Sites, the CooksRecipes website which has a huge selection of recipes to please all tastes and cuisines. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! https://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

Spanish Potato Skillet

Recipe Ingredients:
1 1/3 pounds unpeeled potatoes, such as round reds or long whites (about 4 medium) cut into 1/8-inch thick slices
1/4 cup olive oil
1 large onion, thinly sliced
4 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Several drops hot red pepper sauce
Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley or chives (optional)

Cooking Directions:
1 – Put the potatoes into a large saucepan with enough salted water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat; cover and simmer for 8 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain well.
2 – Meanwhile, heat half of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 6 to 8 minutes, or until soft and golden; remove from heat.
3 – Beat the eggs, salt, black pepper and hot pepper sauce in a large bowl.
4 – Add the onion and potatoes to the eggs, tossing until mixed well. (It’s okay if some of the potato slices break.)
5 – Preheat the broiler.
6 – Heat the remaining oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Spread the potato mixture evenly and press it down lightly. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for about 4 minutes, or until bottom is golden brown, shaking the pan back and forth once or twice.
7 – Place the skillet under the broiler. (If the skillet handle is not oven-proof, wrap it in triple thickness of aluminum foil before placing it in the oven.) Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until the eggs are set. Watch carefully! Sprinkle with parsley. Cut into wedges; serve hot or warm.
Makes 4 servings.

Hold the salt and pepper……

 
Depending on the ingredients you’re adding, you don’t always know how much salt is going in. Many stocks have high levels of sodium, as do canned beans, vegetables and tomato paste. Taste and adjust with salt and pepper as needed at the end.
