What I’m listening to this week:
Main meat meal: To start this week, I threw onions and squash in the bottom of a crock pot, and put about five pounds of beef on top of them. I loosely based the recipe on this one . It was a little bland, but I forgot to add the salt, so that's on me. I served it with lefse on the side, because it was on sale.
Day 2: I made rice and steamed broccoli. To top the rice, I made roux with 4 T butter and the beef fat I skimmed from the leftovers, mixed with a heaping quarter cup of flour. I added two cups of drippings and a cup of beef broth. I then threw in a bunch of the leftover beef. I let it all simmer together and served it over rice. It was great! Exceeded expectations.
Day 3: Quesadillas in the car.
Day 4: I mixed a can of refried beans with salsa and shredded beef and spread those on the last lefse and sprinkled cheese on top. This would also be good with tortillas.
Day 5: Not my circus
Day 6: Weekend rush
Day 7: leftovers
