Bloody Mary Steak Salad
By: Jill O’Brien
My mother recently sent me an idea for a Bloody Mary Steak Salad, which looked and sounded delicious. There are many renditions of this concoction, and below is my take on this fun recipe. Adjust seasonings to your liking to create your own or incorporate pickled asparagus and green beans for additional taste and color!

Ingredients for Steak: *Serves 4
2 – 14 ounce Wild Idea Buffalo Flank Steaks
1 – 6 ounce can spicy V-8 juice *If you don’t like as much spice, use plain V-8.Bloody Mary Steak Salad
1 – tablespoon salt
1 – tablespoon brown sugar
2 – teaspoons paprika

Ingredients for Salad:
1 – small red onion, diced
1 – cucumber, partially peeled (I use a alternating striping method) & chopped
3 – stalks celery hearts, chopped
2 – pints cherry, grape or pear tomatoes, halved or, 3 tomatoes, coarse chopped
8 – large pimento stuffed olives, sliced, reserve 2 tablespoons of the olive juice
4 – tablespoons rice vinegar
1 – tablespoon horseradish
2 – teaspoons Worcestershire
1 – slosh hot sauce, or to your liking
½ – teaspoon celery seeds, lightly crushed
¼ – cup olive oil

fresh lime wedges
sea salt & fresh cracked pepper

Preparation:

1) For steak preparation, rinse steaks and pat dry with paper towels. Place steaks on cutting board and remove any exterior fat or sinew (there will be very little of this). Using a fine tined fork, pierce steaks on both sides at an angle. Place steaks and V-8 juice in a large plastic bag or covered glass dish. Marinate steaks at room temperature for two hours, refrigerate and marinate for an additional 22 hours. Remove steaks from juice, shaking off excess, and blot with a paper towel. Mix, salt, brown sugar, and paprika together and rub into bison flank steaks. Cover and let rest at room temperature for two to four hours before grilling.

2) While steaks are resting before cooking, prepare salad ingredients. Place diced red onion and chopped cucumber in a bowl and toss with two tablespoons of the vinegar and a pinch of salt & pepper. Let rest to slightly pickle for a minimum of two hours.

3) Add remaining vegetables to the onion/cucumber mix and toss.Wild Idea

4) Wisk together the remaining vinegar, with olive juice, horseradish, Worcestershire, hot sauce, celery seed, and olive oil. Pour half of the dressing into the vegetables and toss. Reserve remaining dressing for serving.

5) Pre-heat grill to 500°, insuring that grill grates are clean. Oil grill grates with before grilling with high heat oil or grill spray. Place flank steaks over hottest heat and grill for one minute each side, closing grill lid during cooking. Remove steaks from grill, place on a cutting board, and cover allowing to rest for 5 minutes before cutting. This will give you a medium rare outcome.

6) On 4 plates or platter, arrange tomato salad. Slice steaks on the bias and place on the tomatoes. Drizzle with additional dressing and finish with a squeeze of fresh lime, another pinch of sea salt, and a couple grinds of cracked black pepper.

Serve with icy cold vodka with a squeeze of lime and a splash of chilled tonic.

Healthy Vegetable Side Dish Recipes
Find healthy, delicious vegetable side dish recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Parsnip Mash with Olive Tapenade
Nutty parsnips make for a tasty mashed-potato substitute. For the best parsnip mash, puree the root veggie in a food processor instead of using a ricer, as parsnips are woodier than potatoes…….

Spiralized Onions with Crispy Parmesan Breadcrumbs
You may not have considered onions as candidates for the spiralizer, but you should. They create beautiful ribbons that make this recipe reminiscent of fried shoestring onions. And because this onion ring-inspired recipe is baked rather than fried, they’re really easy to make. Serve them as a side with burgers or as a crunchy healthy snack for game night………………

Honey and Orange Glazed Carrots
Bright and fresh, these candied carrots have just a hint of sweetness from the honey and citrus. This one-pan dish is quick and easy to make, but also has such a pretty presentation that it works both as an entertaining-worthy or weeknight side dish. Look for carrots that are similar in size so they cook evenly…………………..

Steak Enchilada Bowls with Sweet Potato Rice
You won’t miss the regular rice in these hearty bowls, which feature sweet potato “rice” that’s quickly made in your food processor. The simple swap means a welcome burst of color and flavor, plus way more vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium. This quick and easy recipe is sure to become a weeknight favorite. It takes about half an hour to prep, but you can make it even faster by swapping in store-bought sweet potato rice………………….

Cuban Beef Picadillo over Plantain Mash
Ground beef cooked with tomatoes and briny olives can be found all over Latin America. This is a favorite Cuban variation served over plantains, starchy vegetables that look like giant bananas. You can also serve the picadillo over rice or potatoes, so this easy dinner recipe is versatile too……………….

Beef and Bean Sloppy Joes
This healthy copycat recipe of the comfort food classic trades beans for some of the meat to bump up fiber by 7 grams. We also cut back on the sugar and ketchup in this Sloppy Joe recipe makeover to save you 12 grams of added sugar…………………….

Crispy Lemon-Garlic Chicken Thighs with Roasted Potatoes and Carrots
Panko breadcrumbs make this healthy lemon-garlic chicken super-crispy on the outside, while a bit of mayonnaise amps up the juiciness of the thighs. And everything—including fingerling potatoes and carrots—cooks on one sheet pan, so this healthy dinner is super-easy to prep and clean up after too. You can swap out the potatoes and carrots for other vegetables, such as broccoli and parsnips, but just be sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly…………….

Easy Chicken Tikka Masala
It’s hard to believe you can get such a full-flavored, deeply spiced chicken tikka masala in just 30 minutes, but we did it! And, like the title says, this classic chicken tikka masala recipe really is as easy as it gets…………………

Lemon-Garlic Chicken with Green Beans
This easy lemon-garlic chicken recipe calls for cutlets, which cook in less than 10 minutes! Can’t find them? Make your own from chicken breasts. Place each breast on a cutting board and, with your knife parallel to the board, slice into the skinny side of the chicken breast in a single smooth motion. The side of green beans is cooked right in the same pan as the chicken, so this 20-minute easy, healthy dinner is not just a snap to prepare—the cleanup is a cinch too………..

Today’s Menu: Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cold morning out, 24 degrees! For the day had a high of 47 degrees and mostly sunny. After I had my Tea I went to Kroger for a couple of items for Mom. Raked some leaves and then used the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Not a lot to do today so I settled back and watched some College Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I purchased a package of Ground Chicken from Meijer my last visit there. To make the Burger I’ll need; the Ground Chicken (1 lb. package), Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, McCormick’s Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Meijer Italian Style Bread Crumbs. For toppings I’m using Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/Olive Oil, Heinz 57 Sauce, Hoffman’s Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Butter Leaf Lettuce and served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare them, in a large bowl, combine Chicken, Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Italian Style Bread Crumbs. The Seasonings amount are to taste and 2 tablespoons of the Italian Style Bread Crumbs. Make a little depression with your thumb in the center of each burger so they cook evenly. Divide the mixture into 4 patties.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In a Cast Iron Skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add burger patties and cook, flipping once, until golden and a thermometer inserted into the center registers 165°, 8 to 10 minutes. Top with cheddar and cook until just started melting, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer patties to a plate. Serve on the Buns and top with Mayo, Heinz 57 Sauce, and Lettuce. The Ground Chicken Burger is juicy, moist, and flavorful! I’ll have to start having a lot more often!

 

 

 

 

 

 

To go with the Chicken Burger I prepared Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Heinz 57 Sauce. For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ground Chicken
Ground chicken is a healthy start for any meal since one serving (100 grams, or about 3 ounces) meets one’s protein needs for a nutritious meal – plus it’s lower in calories and fat than many meat sources. Lean ground chicken is high in protein and offers less saturated fat than ground beef.

Loaded Chili Baked Potato w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

Today’s Menu: Loaded Chili Baked Potato w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

To start my day off I Scrambled 2 medium size Eggs and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its cloudy and rain showers. Later it was mostly cloudy and 50 degrees out. Not feeling too good today, my sinuses are driving me crazy! The weather needs to get cold and stay cold so my sinuses can adjust. As long as our temperatures keep going up and down I suffer. So not a lot going on for me today. For Dinner a Loaded Chili Baked Potato w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve had a Loaded Baked Potato, and long over due! To make my Loaded Potato I’ll need a large Russet Potato, my 3 Bean Turkey Chili, Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Daisy Light Sour Cream.

 

 

 

 

To start I got a small Sauce Pan and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray. Then added my Chili that I had prepared yesterday and heated it on medium low until heated through. Set aside until ready to use.

 

 

 

 

 

I first turned the stove on at 400 degrees for my Roasted Asparagus. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Garlic Salt, McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Rinse cleaned the Asparagus and cut the tough ends off of the Asparagus before Seasoning. Laid the Asparagus Spears out in a single layer on a foil lined baking sheet. First put some Extra Light Olive Oil across the Asparagus and then my Seasonings. Placed the pan in oven and cook for approximately 8 minutes. Topped it with a sprinkle of Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese before serving.

 

 

Finally I prepared the Potato. I first washed the Potato off and dried it with a paper towel. I grabbed a paring knife and I made small slits on all sides of the Potato. Next I got a bowl for the Potato. I then microwaved it for 6:00 minutes. Pulled it out of the microwave and gave it the fork test. I used the same paring knife and checked to make sure the Potato was done all the way through. Just jabbed the knife in the Potato and if it goes all the way through its done. Times will vary depending on the size of the Potato. I didn’t split the Potato open until I was ready to top it.

 

 

To serve it I split the Potato open, seasoned it with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Next I added my 3 Bean Turkey Chili, then the Sargento Cheese, and finally a dab of the Daisy Light Sour Cream. Wow, now this a Stuffed Potato! The Turkey Chili and Beans combined with the Cheese and a Sour Cream makes one delicious Potato! Served the Potato with the Roasted Asparagus and a slice of Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. I had baked a loaf earlier today. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Not sure why the post didn’t appear last night, but better late than never!

 

 

 

 

Russet Potatoes……

Russet potatoes offer a higher fiber content than white potatoes, which helps improve gut health, Friedman continues. Russets are also a good source of iron, which supports healthy blood, and magnesium, which is needed for heart, nerve and immune system function.

1 lb. package Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast
2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste

Farmers’ Market Fried Rice
This fried rice recipe features a fall mixture of sliced Brussels sprouts and parsnips, but feel free to use whatever is fresh and in season. This recipe works best in a wok— a skillet is too small for the volume of food and requires more oil to prevent sticking. Always use cold cooked rice otherwise the fried rice will be gummy and sticky……………….

Pulled Pork with Caramelized Onions
Traditional pulled pork is barbecued, which gives it a smoky flavor. But the slow cooker happens to be the absolute easiest way to cook pulled pork—and you can get a hint of smoke by adding chipotle chile. Serve the pulled pork with potato salad, collard greens and grits. Or make it into a sandwich and serve it on a bun with coleslaw…………

Maple-Roasted Sweet Potatoes
In this easy vegetable side dish recipe, sweet potatoes are tossed with maple syrup, butter and lemon juice and are roasted until tender and golden brown. The delicious glaze that forms on these maple-roasted sweet potatoes transform this ultra-simple dish into something sublime……….

3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I had to drop my car off over to the Auto Shop for an Oil Change, Tire Rotation and to repair a leak in Wind Shield Wiper Fluid Reserve. Had Mom’s Winterized last week and had mine done today. After I got back I loaded the Crock Pot up with all the ingredients for my 3 Bean Turkey Chili! Chili just seems to taste better this time of the year! Did a load of laundry and cleaned the Kitchen today, Fridge, Microwave, and Floor. For Dinner tonight its my 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread.

 

 

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.

 

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.

 

 

 

I just love the aroma of the simmering Chili, 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. I’ll be using the Leftover Chili in a couple of different ways for the couple of days, can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day!

 

 

 

I also prepared a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. The Cornbread goes perfect with Chili! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Slow-Cooker Turkey Chili with Butternut Squash
The sweetness of the butternut squash tames the kick from cayenne in this healthy turkey chili, making this easy crock pot chili just right for kids and adults alike, whether for weeknight dinners or tailgating parties. For those who prefer a spicier chili, just pass hot sauce at the table. This chili also freezes well, so save leftovers for hearty and healthy dinners and lunches for weeks to come……………..

Turkey and Brown Rice Chili
This hearty turkey chili recipe takes just 35 minutes to prep. While it’s cooking, you’ll have time to throw together a green salad and warm up some crusty bread to complete the meal……….

White Turkey Chili
This healthy white turkey chili recipe is gorgeous, with flecks of green from zucchini, oregano and green chiles. To keep the saturated fat low, we use one pound of ground turkey and add whole-grain bulgur to boost the volume and fiber in this chili recipe. After all the ingredients are added to the pot, we like to slowly simmer our chili for close to an hour to develop the best flavor, but if you’re in a hurry, reduce the liquid by half and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes……….
