Asian Beef over Rice

Advertisements

This Asian beef is easy to make and can serve lots of people. This recipe is also great for using up leftover veggies or to help use some things up from the freezer. This Asian beef is flavorful and pairs great with the rice. I like to place about 1/4 cup of meat on 1 cup of rice then stir it all together before eating. This ratio is my favorite and the flavor is in every bite! This recipe is very similar to Korean beef, but really it was just a way for me to use up leftover beef dumpling filling from the previous night. This recipe makes 4 adult servings.

Sausage Breakfast Stir-Fry

Advertisements

This sausage stir-fry can is great as a breakfast or as a dinner. First cook your beef or pork sausage until fully cooked. You can use either mild or spicy sausage depending on your preferences. I used pork, so I didn’t have to add any additional oil while cooking, but if you are using a leaner beef sausage, you will need some oil by the time you reach adding your rice. Otherwise everything else is as the recipe states. When I was stirring the egg, the rice did slide over crowding the eggs, but it can easily be pushed back to the side. It also only took a few seconds to fully cook the eggs, so once the eggs are added, dinner is practically ready! This recipe made 4 Adult sized portions.

Vegetable Venison Soup

Advertisements

Vegetable venison soup is a vegetable soup with some meat to make it a hearty meal. This soup is not a side dish, but the center of a meal. Healthy and tasty, this recipe is a great use of any leftover veggies you may have. When I made this soup, I used venison slices. Though the venison tasted fantastic, it was hard to eat in bigger slices, but dice into bite-sized pieced before cooking or before transferring to the soup. Otherwise, this soup tastes more of vegetables and less of meat making the dish a light and filling meal. This recipe made 5 adult sized portions.

Seasoned Turkey Stock

Advertisements

To limit waste after Thanksgiving, I like to use what is left of the turkey to make stock. Last year was my first time, and the frozen stock lasted me a year. Last year I didn’t flavor my stock before it was frozen, and it was a huge shame. This year I seasoned my stock with onion, celery, and garlic. These flavors go well with turkey, and can be used in a variety of dishes throughout the year. I purposely left out herbs because I want a very versatile stock. I also didn’t add salt to this stock, though I would need it if I were to make a soup with it, I didn’t want any future dishes to be too salty as a result of a salty stock. Otherwise this stock is straight forward. Boil, strain, then store.

What You Will Need

  • 1 Cooked Turkey with Meat removed
  • 1/2 Onion, quartered
  • 2 Celery Stalks, cut into 1/3s
  • 2 Garlic cloves, peeled and halved
  • Large Stock Pot and Lid
  • Ladle, Large Wooden Spoon, Small Bowl
  • Strainer
  • Large Dutch Oven
  • Freezer Containers

Directions

1. Place the turkey bones into the stock pot. Soak in water for 10 minutes. Drain. Cover bones with water, leaving about 1-2 inches until the lip of the pot. Place on stove over medium heat. Add in your cut veggies and let simmer uncovered for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Every 10 minutes, skim off bubbles forming on surface and place in a small bowl on the side.

2. Once most bubbles have seemed to stopped settling on top, turn up the heat a little to bring the pot at a gently boil. Boil for 2 hours covered, then remove the lid and boil for another hour uncovered. Remove from heat and let cool for about 1 hour.

3. Once cooled, place your strainer on top of your dutch oven and place in your sink. Pour about 1/2 of the liquid and bones into the strainer. Shake your strainer, then discard what is in your strainer. Place the strainer back on top of the dutch oven, and pour the second half of the stock into the strainer. Shake and discard remaining bones. Use a ladle to transfer broth into freezer safe containers. Label then store.
