Salisbury Steak Meatballs

Another pressure cooker adventure!  Also another Skinnytaste recipe.  We had this with cauliflower mash.  Definitely one worth repeating.

Honey Teriyaki Drumsticks

So we got a pressure cooker.  It was kind of intimidating at first, but lucky for us, our friend Missy had started this craze, so I jumped on her bandwagon and learned how to use the pressure cooker from her (seeing a trend here?  Missy taught me how to cook!).  We love both this recipe and the pressure cooker!  Easy, quick, great options – definitely a good purchase.  This was a winner of a recipe from Skinny Taste, though I should have thickened the sauce before serving.  We had this with some sautéed zucchini.  Awesome!

Poached Fish in Spicy Tomato Broth

So this is pretty much awesome.  It’s a Cooking Light recipe that was my first time cooking fish years and years ago, and I’m just now getting around to posting it and remembering how great it was.  Great weeknight meal, fast, tasty, and any veggies go well with it.  We had this with roasted green beans and mashed cauliflower.  This would be great with any firm white fish.

Breaded Pork Chop Cutlets

I am generally not a fan of breaded anything, but these were awesome and very simple.  I brined the pork chops for a couple of hours before cooking, which really does make all the difference IMO, no matter what the cooking method (I’ve started doing it with chicken breast too, and get great results).  This is from this month’s Cooking Light, and we had it with mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts – we both loved it.

Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli

Always on the lookout for new crockpot recipes to try, and this one was very good.  Easy and a good riff on the takeout classic.  I might add a hair more garlic and some Sriracha next time, but just being picky.  You could serve this over rice or noodles, but we actually just had it on its own and enjoyed it that way.

Queso Dip

So I feel like I may be stretching it a bit if I call this a recipe.  But it is like crack dip and Velveeta for the win, of course!  This was great for a crowd, and you can really adapt it any way you like.  I made this for a fun girls’ night at the barn and we enjoyed it!

Slow Cooker Honey-Soy Drumsticks

Summertime slow cooker recipe trial and error continues, and I have to say that we really enjoyed this one.  Next time, I might thicken the sauce for a bit longer afterwards to get a better coating, but this was pretty great even with a watery sauce.  The leftovers were awesome as well!  We had this with zucchini and summer squash, because we are pretty much drowning in both. 😉slowcookerdrummies
