I’ve fallen of so many wagons recently, it’s time I start getting myself back together in so many ways. I need to start eating healthy again, I need to blog again. house cleaning, the list goes on and on.
But one thing I can control, is what I’m eating, and these healthy tacos were a great place to start. I know my family’s going to think I’ve lost my mind(this isn’t a new thing LOL) but by adding beans to the mixture, you not only make them healthier, but you can make them cheaper! Plus I think it makes them a lot better, they’re creamier and I loved the texture. Win Win!
They’re super tasty, and they are great in salads or on a taco shell. Hopefully they will make an appearance on your table soon!
Brown turkey in a large skillet, when cooked through add the package of taco seasoning or 2 TBSP of the homemade taco seasoning, water and salsa. Simmer for another 10 minutes or until thicken. Serve with cheese, chips, shells or on a salad.
This dish was soooo good, I only got a taste of it when it came out of the crock pot, because my daughter claimed the rest of it! It always makes a mamma happy when your kids love what you make.
This was made in the crock pot, but it’s not exactly a dump and walk way recipe. You start out with the steak in the crock pot with the sauce
The sauce was soooo good, some garlic, soy & oyster sauce, with ginger, brown sugar and a little Sriracha sauce.
Then once that had cooked for a couple of hours I dumped a bag of frozen Chinese veggies on top, then the last half hour I took the steak out, sliced it and diced it (and this is why you can use a cheap piece of meat, slow cooked + dicing it small, it won’t be tough) put it back in the crock pot and stirred in some cooked noodles, and it came out amazing!
Place steak in the bottom of crock pot and in a small bowl combine garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, oyster sauce, ginger and Sriracha sauce. Pour over steak and cook on high for 2 hours, then add frozen veggies on top of the steak, cook for 1 1/2 hours, then remove steak and cut in small pieces(cheap steak works great for this because it’s cut up small so it being tender isn’t a problem) and stir steak and cooked pasta in the sauce and veggies. Save a little pasta water in case it’s dry, but I didn’t have that problem.
This was without a doubt the best pot roast I’ve ever made. So simple and just a few ingredients and cook it all day long.
I started with a couple of onions quartered in the bottom of my large cast iron dutch oven.
Next up was the cheapest piece of beef I could find in the store, a 3 to 4 pound chuck roast. Place on top of the onions and season well with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Then I just mixed 2 packages of brown gravy mix with 1 1/2 cups of water and poured over the beef. I placed it in a 275 degree oven for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours then turned it down to 225 and cooked it 10 to 12 hours
And it just fell apart. It was the most tender, juice beef I’ve ever cooked.
All I did for the gravy, was thicken it a little with corn starch.
So if you need a money-saving recipe, cause you can use cheap meat, this is the one for you! I assume this would work in a crock pot, but I haven’t tried it, so if you do let me know
In a large cast iron dutch oven placed quartered onions, the lay beef on top and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. In a small bowl, mix gravy mix with water and pour over beef. Place dutch oven in a preheated 275 degree oven. Bake for an hour to an hour and a half, then turn oven down to 225 and bake for 10 to 12 hours.
This was so easy and such a cheap meal, just add some mashed potatoes or rice and thicken then pan juices with a little water and corn starch.
