All the ingredients for this great dish are within a short drive of my house and the ingredients are all on sale.
There’s an old saying in my family about having “enough is never the problem.” The same is true for cooking. You can’t always get the exact same stuff because you never know what the season will bring. But I think one of the best ways to enjoy a good meal is to prepare it yourself. All it takes is a little bit of forethought and you can make a great meal.
What’s great about this technique is that you don’t need to wait until the grocery store is open. You can buy the ingredients when they’re cheap and on sale. The only problem is you’ll have to do the cooking yourself. You have to check your own spice rack and check the expiration date on the salt, add the vinegar or lemon juice and check the salt again. If you’re feeling especially lucky, you can add some seasoning to the dish.
It seems like most recipes are pretty simple. You can buy a premade mix of ingredients and just throw it together, or you can order good ingredients off of Amazon and cook them yourself without having to think about them. I can’t believe I haven’t tried to cook a good steak. Or chicken. Or even a chicken-and-rice casserole. It seems impossible that anyone actually makes a succulent steak.
If youre a steak or chicken-and-rice casserole fanatic, I have a very simple recipe that should work just about every time. It’s actually quite hard to make the meat and rice at the same time, but thats a story for another time. It’s also hard to turn a steak into something that resembles a casserole, so I usually just fry it up and then put it in my crockpot or in the oven.
To put it simply, if you want to make a steak casserole, you have to make the meat first. No one has figured out how to do that, but after youve got your meat, you can add in some of that awesome sauce. It’s up to you if you want to add in some kind of meat sauce. Some people add in some diced onions or mushrooms or whatever. I just use a simple mix of mushrooms, garlic, and olive oil.
Most people add a bunch of cheese for flavor, but I prefer to make it simple. My steak casserole is similar to what you would make if you used a meatball recipe, only I use a steak instead of a meatball. Instead of the onions, I use red wine and a pinch of thyme. This is an awesome recipe.
The question you should be asking is, what are you using for sauce? If the answer is, “Just butter and wine,” then you may be onto a good thing. But if you’re using a meatball recipe, you may have a problem. For instance, if you use a meatball recipe and the meatballs are too tough, the sauce will be too thick.
I have to admit, I’ve been pretty burnt out on meatballs recently. I’ve been craving them for days. I’m going to try making something like meatballs with my mother’s recipe for the steak sauce, and see if I can get through it.
If you’re using a butter and wine sauce recipe, chances are you’re using a traditional meatball recipe. Traditional meatball recipes call for a roux of flour, and some kind of liquid to get the meatballs to the tender, juicy state they want. In the past, you would add a bit of butter to the flour mixture so that the roux would be smooth but you still have a lump of it at the bottom where the meatballs would be.
