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.

Thick Crust Pizza

Advertisements

If you like pizza with thick crust, nothing gets thicker than this pizza! This pizza is almost just bread with toppings! However, this pizza crust absorbs the savory liquid from the sauce and paired with the salty cheese on top, this is one of the tastiest pizzas I’ve ever had. I used a 12 inch diameter deep dish pizza pan, and the dough before topping was about an inch and a half thick. The par-bake is important to ensure that the crust is cooked completely before serving. You can use store bought pizza sauce with this pizza, but you’ll want it to be a thinner sauce and savory rather than sweet. This pizza made 6 large servings.

What You Will Need

  • 6 Cups Flour
  • 2 Cups Warm Water (110 F)
  • 4 tsp Active Dried Yeast
  • 3 Tbsp Oil
  • Homemade Sauce
  • 2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella
  • 1/2 Onion, Finely Sliced
  • 1/2 Bell Pepper, Sliced
  • Dutch Oven
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Deep Dish Pizza Pan

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, water, yeast, and oil. Add additional flour until the dough doesn’t stick to your finger. Form the dough into a ball, coat lightly with oil, and place somewhere warm to rise for 45 minutes to an hour and a half, or until doubled in size.

2. Heat oven to 350 F. Punch down the dough and transfer to the pizza pan. Work to hide any crack, then stretch evenly to edges of the pan. Let rise for 30 minutes, then stretch again leaving a crust up the sides. Bake for 15 minutes then remove. Top the par-baked crust with pizza sauce, cheese, and toppings. Return to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until toppings begin to brown. Let cool 10 minutes before cutting.

Homemade Pasta and Pizza Sauce

Advertisements

This homemade pizza/pasta sauce is a great way to use up any veggies you may have while also making a hearty and delicious sauce. Below is how I made my sauce, but substitute in what you have! Add some blended beans or spinach, or just stick with meat, tomatoes, and season with salt and soy sauce. I used 1 quart of diced tomatoes, and one can of fire roasted tomatoes to add extra flavor. The mushrooms add extra savory elements to the dish, and if you want to have some diced in the sauce it adds great pockets of flavor. I ended up boiling my sauce for 1 hour to thicken it a bit, but it could still be considered too thin to your taste. The recipe below makes about enough sauce for 5-6 pizzas, or enough sauce for 8-10 servings of pasta.

Fried Rice

Fried Rice is so easy and can be made in so many different ways. This fried rice has a little bit of everything. I used up the remaining ingredients from the hot pot, but I also added new flavors. Fried rice is a great way to use leftovers and still be able to feed your family. For this recipe, I used two meats, sliced venison steak and diced bacon. I cooked my bacon before adding it to the dish, so I did have to add a bit of bacon fat just to keep everything from burning. As for veggies, I used a bit of everything. I used sliced mushrooms, sliced water chestnuts, diced cabbage, sliced carrot, sliced onion, and diced bell pepper. I also used 6-8 cups of rice in this dish and it was still very flavorful. If your really wanted to feed a crowd and stretch the dish, you could easily use 10-12 cups of cooked rice. This recipe makes 8 adult sized servings.

What You’ll Need

  • 1/2 lb Sliced Steak/Venison
  • 1/4 Cup Diced Bacon
  • Sliced/Diced Veggies
  • 1 Cup Stock
  • 1 Clove Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 Tbsp Ginger paste
  • 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Sesame Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Fish Sauce
  • 6 Cups Cooked Rice
  • Large Wok
  • Oil/Bacon Fat, As Needed

Directions

  1. Begin by heating the wok over medium high heat. Once it’s hot, add your steak and bacon. Once your meats are both browned, add your veggies, and stir fry until your meat begins getting a nice maillard crust on it, add about 1/2 Tbsp of oil at a time if needed it during this time. Then add tha stock and remaining seasoning until stock comes to a boil.

2. Once the stock is boiling, add your cooked rice. Make sure the rice is fully broken up and everything is coated. Cook rice for 2-3 minutes, then serve.

Steak Fajitas

Advertisements

Fajitas are delicious and very easy to make. I made these tortillas too, which only took another 20-25 minutes. I halved this recipe and made 8 tortillas instead of making 10, but this recipe makes enough filling for 10 six to eight inch tortillas. This recipe is very easy, and if you wanted to, you could also make this dish without the steak, and it would be just as good. Otherwise the recipe is what I made. My spices are a bit on the weak side, so you might need to reduce the amount of Cumin and Cayenne. This recipe makes 3-5 servings since 2-3 Fajitas is enough to feed one adult.

What You Will Need

  • 1/2 lb Steak, Diced
  • 1 Bell Pepper, Sliced
  • 1 Medium Onion, Sliced
  • 1/2 Cup Salsa
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 2 tsp Ground Cayenne
  • 1 Cup Shredded Sharp Cheese
  • 10 Tortillas

Directions

1. First, make your homemade tortillas, if you desire. Then I wiped out the pan and began by adding the steak over a medium heat. Once browned, add 2 Tbsp oil and the pepper and onion. Cook until the the pepper and onion are softened.

2. Add your spices, stir to combine, then add the salsa. Stir until everything is covered and the salsa is hot. Top with the cheese, and stir in. Once stirred, remove from heat and begin plating.
