The latest meals

Well, I haven't been trying any new beef recipes lately. I made chili with two pounds of ground beef. I know it's summer, but I enjoy having chili around. I like to eat chili at room temperature, so having a pot of it in the fridge makes an easy summer snack.

I also made a sirloin steak. It was very large, more than big enough for the two of us. I cooked it like I discussed in this post, though with the temperature a bit lower so as to get the correct doneness. As always, I made green beans in the pan while the steak was resting. It makes some of the tastiest green beans I've every had. The steak was also delicious.

We're definitely working our way through the meat, though there are quite a few roasts remaining. The liver has won -- I'm planning on giving it to friends with cats and dogs. Some of the suet went for a friend's dad's bird feeder. What else can I do with suet?

Quick Noodle Dish

Just a quick post. I used some top round to make a chinese noodle stir fry. I (basically) followed this recipe. I used TJ thai rice sticks instead of chow fun noodles, snow peas instead of gai lan (as it's what I had on hand), and no colored peppers. However it was very flavorful with all the garlic, ginger, fermented black beans, and spicy pepper. Definitely will make again.

Pot Roast and Nachos.

I made pot roast again. This time I cooked it on the stove using this recipe. I used some "Pasta Sprinkle" I received as a gift place of the Italian seasoning. It turned out delicious -- moist and tender. Now if only I could achieve those results with my crock pot.

I also used another pound of ground beef to make nachos. Nothing exciting there.
