Slow Cooker Enchiladas
An old Mexican classic with a new twist. Anytime we have a potluck, I am asked to bring these. Can be made with chicken or beef.
Garlic Shrimp Scampi
A family pleaser for years! The more garlic the better for the garlic lovers of the world!
Leftover T-Day Turkey Stock
A great way to use up every last bit of the turkey from Thanksgiving Day. Stock can be used right away or frozen and used later.
Instant Pot Vegetable Broth
This Instant Pot vegetable broth is made easily with the help of a multicooker. No need to stand watch over a stove when you can throw it all in and go using this method. The best part is that you know exactly what went into it and also that you can use vegetables that are getting old and in need of use. This recipe is perfect for soup or for adding flavor to pasta and rice dishes. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
Baked Sesame Chicken
Open, sesame! This baked sesame chicken recipe is a family favorite. For a variation, you can also use bone-in chicken pieces, but be sure to increase the cooking time in this case.
Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots
The shallot sauce takes some time, but is well worth the trouble. This is definitely a company dish, and the recipe doubles well for a larger party. Serve with a green salad and roasted vegetables.
I eat this quite a bit at our local Chinese restaurants, so I recreated it at home and made it even tastier. These are time-consuming, and I recommend using oil in the deep fryer that is ready to change as the marinade will ruin it for cooking anything else. I've also done this technique successfully with squid. I've also added in very thinly sliced onion and green peppers to the marinade and it was really good.
