Slow Cooker Southwestern Pork Stew / #SundaySupper

 Do you use your slow cooker often? I made this Slow Cooker Southwestern Pork Stew recently, and I realized that I should really use mine more often. I placed all the ingredients in the slow cooker and went to run some errands. It was so nice when I got home, and the aroma of this tasty meal was wafting through the house. It was also nice to know that I would not have to hurry around the kitchen to prepare dinner~it was already done!
This stew smelled amazing and tasted as good as it smelled. It is full of flavors, like cumin and oregano, beans and chilies! I made this stew with mild beans and chilies, but you could turn up the heat by using hot ones instead. You could expand the flavor of this stew, by adding rice to the mix, or serving it on noodles. No matter how you cook it, you are going to love the aroma, flavors and the convenience of this recipe!

Steak Tacos with Chimichurri Sauce / #SundaySupper

Although you may look at the ingredient list for my Steak Tacos w/ Chimichurri Sauce and think it is too long, with way to many ingredients, it really is easy and quick to make. I think you are going to like this version of chimichurri sauce. I made a few changes to the traditional sauce, like not using pimentos, cooking the red peppers, and soaking the diced red onions in the cider vinegar mix.
If you are like me, and you have a lot of interruptions when you are cooking, I recommend not putting any ingredients together until all of them are measured out and sitting right in front of you. It's so much easier, and when you have a long list, it makes the cooking go quicker. Really! 
 

 Steak Tacos w/ Chimichurri Sauce 
(printable recipe at end of page) 
(makes 8 tacos)
1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup diced Red Bell Peppers
1 cup Italian Parsley, fresh chopped
1/3 cup chopped Cilantro
1 clove Garlic, finely chopped
1/3 cup diced yellow, and orange Bell Peppers
2 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar
8 ounce Top Sirloin Filet 
ground pepper
minced garlic
8 Tortillas
1 Lime
1 Avocado, sliced
Queso Fresco (crumbly cheese)


Combine apple cider vinegar, sugar and water. Bring to a boil. Add red onion. Boil for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
Saute red peppers in butter until softened, but with just a bit of crunch.
Add chopped fresh parsley, chopped cilantro, chopped garlic, yellow and orange peppers, red peppers, diced red onions, extra virgin olive oil, and red wine vinegar to a bowl and mix together.
Sprinkle steak with black pepper and minced garlic. Tenderize and then place on grill.
Cook steak on grill to medium rare, or whatever you like. For medium rare, cook on each side for 2 minutes, flipping it to the other side, cooking for 5-6 minutes. Place tortillas in aluminum foil and cook on grill with steak. 
Let meat rest for approximately 5 minutes. Slice down thin slices.
Build taco by adding steak, topping it with chimichurri sauce, avocado and crumbly cheese. Add a squeeze of fresh lime, if desired.
 Enjoy!

Apple Kielbasa Stack / #SundaySupper

I admit that I am not much for football, but I am very much for the food served at football games and parties! I am a finger food lover for pretty much any event. What is it about finger food? I think I love it because it is cute and small, and you can eat a lot of different types and not feel like you are eating too much! That is definitely the case with these Apple Kielbasa Stacks! Tons of great flavor, stacked to enjoy, and drizzled with Balsamic Glaze! 
 Apple Kielbasa Stack 
(printable recipe at end of page)

 Balsamic Vinaigrette (find recipe here)
1 tablespoons Butter
1 Granny Smith Apple
2 tablespoons dark brown Sugar
1 ounce Water (if needed)
1/2 teaspoon Roasted Cinnamon
Kielbasa
Dark Bread




Make Balsamic Vinaigrette. Set aside. Cut apple in to small pieces. Add butter to a frying pan set on medium high. Let butter melt and add apples, dark brown sugar, and roasted cinnamon. If sauce becomes too thick, add a bit of water, a little at a time.  Drop heat to low and simmer until apples become soft, but still have a little crispness. The best way to check them is to poke a couple of the larger pieces with a toothpick.
Slice kielbasa into thin slices. Cook in butter until brown like above, on both sides.
 Use a cookie cutter to cut out the pieces of bread. The cutter I used was 1 3/4" circle. You could use a 1 1/2" cutter also.
Stack a slice of kielbasa on top of each piece of bread. Top the kielbasa with a piece of sauteed apple. Use a wooden hors d'oeuvres fork or any type of appetizer fork to serve with the stack.
Drizzle each Apple Kielbasa Stack with Balsamic Vinaigrette. You can find the recipe here.

Sushi Roll Rice Bowl / #SundaySupper

 If you are a rice lover, I know you will love this Sushi Roll Rice Bowl!  It's sushi, without the roll! It's easy! It's fun! The best part is that you can customize it to your taste. Don't like crab or shrimp? Add some chicken! Don't like avocado? Add some tuna! 
The base of this yummy bowl is sushi rice. It's incredible! It's sticky and sweet and awesome!
I know there are a lot of ingredients in this recipe, but the thing to remember is prep, prep, prep! Prep is king in a recipe like this one. Make the rice, boil your shrimp, toast the sesame seeds, cut your vegetables for the bowl. Have everything ready~then assemble your bowl. That makes it easy, and helps you feel organized!
Scroll down for lots more rice recipes after reading this one!
 Sushi Roll Rice Bowl
 (printable recipe at end of page)
1 1/2 Cups of Rice
2 cups Water
Vinegar
sugar
Salt
3-4 pieces of Shrimp
Shrimp and Crab Concentrate
2 tablespoons Sesame Seeds
Cucumber Slices
Carrot Shreds
Meat from 3-4 Snow Crab Legs
Avocado Slices
Sliced Green Onions
Pickled Ginger
Roasted Seaweed  
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
1/4 to 1/2 cup Sugar
1 tablespoons Rice Vinegar

Start making the sushi rice by making short grain white rice according to the package directions. Sometimes the package will state that it is "perfect for making sushi rice". Once the rice is cooked, lay it out on a baking sheet to cool. While it is cooling, put your mix together. Heat the vinegar, sugar and salt in a small pot. Stir to dissolve the sugar and salt over low heat. While it is heating, make an ice bath, and cool the mix by placing the mix in a bowl, and that bowl into the bowl of ice and water. Once the mix is cooled, pour it over the rice, a little at a time, carefully mixing it with a spatula or a flat spoon. I like to wear gloves and carefully fluff the rice as I am adding the mix. Then continue to mix over and over. The rice will continue to absorb the mix, giving it a great flavor. Put rice in a safe container until you are ready to use.
I cooked 5 shrimp for this bowl, but only 4 are needed. Peel and devein the fresh shrimp. Add a teaspoon of Shrimp and Crab concentrate to a small pot of boiling water. Cook shrimp in pot for 3-4 minutes. Remove shrimp from pot and place them into a small water bath.  Let cool completely. Set aside.
Toast a teaspoon of sesame seeds by placing them into a dry pan. Turn temperature to medium low and allow seeds to start to brown. Keep careful and watch so they don't burn. Move the seeds around the pan every couple minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Set aside.
 Make the soy drizzle by combining the the soy sauce, sugar and rice vinegar in a small sauce pan. You may not want all the sugar, so use the 1/4 cup, then try the taste to see if you want to add more. Bring to a boil for approx. 3 minutes, whisking the entire time. Reduce to a light syrup consistency. Set aside.
Fill your bowl with the sushi rice. Begin adding your ingredients in to the bowl. Sprinkle the bowl with the toasted sesame seeds. Crumble a piece of roasted seaweed in the center of the bowl. Add the soy drizzle. 
Enjoy!

Surprise Inside Brownie Bites / #SundaySupper

It's that time of year again! School is starting soon, or maybe it has already started at your house! Although my son has already graduated college, if I remember anything from him going to school, it was how hungry he was every day when he got home! Some kind of after school snack was a necessity. Lot of times I made it healthy and good for him, and other times I made something sweet that I knew he would like. That's what these Surprise Inside Brownie Bites are. A sweet after school snack with a little surprise inside!
Surprise Inside Brownie Bites 
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes 25-30 )

6 ounces Milk Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 1/4 cup Flour
3 tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
Pinch of  Salt
Mini peanut butter cups (2 per brownie)

Frosting 
1 1/2 cups Confectionery Sugar, sifted
1/4 cup Butter, softened 
2-3 tablespoons Milk
1 ounce semi sweet Chocolate Square, melted
Chocolate Sprinkles




This is the pan I used, but you can use anything that will result in small, mini brownies. Grease the cups with spray, then wipe out any extra. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 Melt chocolate. butter and sugar in a saucepan over low heat. 
Pour into large bowl and add eggs and vanilla. Beat with mixer.
Add flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt to bowl. Mix together.
 Fill each cavity as shown.  Bake for 9 minutes, then remove from oven and place on a cooling rack.
Immediately place 2 mini chocolate peanut butter cups in each brownie. Push down so they are even with the top of the brownie. I used Mini Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups from Trader Joes. They come in a 12 ounce tub, and they are fabulous! (and addicting) You could also use some of the mini peanut butter cups I have seen around at the stores, or even just a single small one, instead of a mini!  Cool for 5 minutes.
Remove from pan and allow to cool completely on the cooling rack.
Make frosting by mixing together the confectioner's sugar, butter, milk, and melted chocolate square.
I used a Witon tip #31 to decorate some of the brownies, but not all. They taste good both ways! Sprinkle sprinkles on the ones with frosting and enjoy!
