6.

Red Gravy

Basic Red Gravy

I Prefer it as a spaghetti dish but it is only limited by your imagination.
In a crockpot, put some spaghetti sauce (Don't fill the crock cause meat goes in)
Add breakfast steaks (Any thin steak in small chunks {about the side of a can top} the thinner the better)
Add Italian sausages (Cut those into bitesize chunks) Or you can use cutup Brats
Stewed or Diced tomatoes
Peppers & Onions
Cook till meats are done (Steak should fall apart easy)
Serve over noodles or whatever

Here's What I Do

Cut the Breakfast Steak (Eye of Round) into can-top size chunks
Cut the Cajun or Gator Sausage (Italian Hot Sausage Works) links into bitesize chunks
Throw them into a Sealable storage bag with Fire oil (any hot pepper oil),
a splash of Rice Vinegar, Slap Yo Momma or Cajun Seasoning(careful - they have salt in them),
Hot Chili Powder, Cracked Black Pepper, Some Worcestershire & Red Pepper Flakes.
Seal the bag and mix the spices into the meat and set it aside on the counter
(It has to get to room temp)

Spray The crock-pot with cooking spray
Shake out some fire oil in the bottom
(not a lot, the meat is supposed to be the spiciest)
Add spaghetti sauce (I use Ragu no/meat)
Add a can of diced tomatoes (I use Italian style)
Add a small can of Button Mushrooms (Drained)

Cut up a Yellow and a Red Pepper to bitesize chunks
Slice some fresh mushrooms (about a handful)
Slice a Roma Tomato into thick slices
Slice and Quarter a Sweet Onion
Put those in a bag with some Honey and a little Brown Sugar
Nuke in the Mic for 7-10 secs (Just enough to warm the honey)
Mix the bag and pour into the crock

Pour the meat into the crock
Add Italian Seasoning, Garlic or Garlic Powder
Cook all day (in by 11am done by 5pm)

7.

Kielbasa is kinda salty.

(optional)
Zucchini

(I use those 1 cup boil bags)
A little Olive Oil
(butter optional)
Raspberry Blush Vinegar
(any malt or balsamic vinegar works)
Seasoning

Here's What Ya Do:

Cut the kielbasa lengthwise down the center then into 1-2 inch chunks
Add a little olive oil to your frypan (or butter)
A few splashes of Worcestershire and a little cooking wine
Fast cook the kielbasa.
Set the pan aside but do not drain.

Cut up the veggies.
Put them in a seal-able bag with some vinegar, oil and seasonings.
Add a little brown sugar and honey to the bag.
Mix the shit out of it till everything is coated.
Then, dump that into the frypan and reheat till the veggies are cooked.
I like my veggies with a crisp snap
Some like theirs soft.

Cook your rice and put some on your plate and spoon the cooked mixture over top.
Some people like it with sour cream, some with BBQ sauce and some with Hot sauce.
Personally, I like it as it is.
Maybe some Cajun seasoning...maybe

The whole thing only takes a few minutes but it is something different

9.

Spray the Crock with Non-Stick Cooking Spray

I also add a few shakes of Fire Oil
(Hot Chili Oil)

Set the crock pot on low and
let cook all day stirring ocassionally

These can be served as an appetizer, a snack or a meal.
They make awesome Meatball Subs!

Try them with:
Hawaiian Rolls
Fresh Pistolettes
Mini Bagels
Snack Crackers
Baguettes
French or Italian Rolls/Buns

Top with:
Melted Cheeses
Bacon
Mushroom Sauce
Peppers & Sweet Onions

to adjust to side dishes or other entrees.

A Pleasantly Spicy Sweet Treat

10.

Easy Stuffed Peppers

I like my stuffed peppers!
I'll share it but ya gotta promise me you will NOT use
Poisonous GREEN Peppers!

Here's What You Need

Four Peppers
(Red, Yellow, Purple, Orange, Any color but Green!)
About a Pound of Hamburger
Sweet Onion
Beef Rice-A-Roni
(Any flavor but Chicken)
(Unless you want to make Chicken Stuffed Peppers)
Four Slices of Bacon or Real Bacon Bits
(Crispy & Crushed)
A Jar of Your Favorite Spaghetti Sauce
Seasonings
(Watch the salt content)
Your Favorite Shredded Cheese
Romano/Parmesan Shaker Cheese


Here's What You Do

Brown the hamburger in a skillet for one inch chunks.
Add the seasonings you want for the meat.
Add the sliced onions and saute those in the burger grease.
Drain all that and set it aside.

In the same skillet prepare the Rice-A-Roni to box instructions with
the cooked hamburger and onions added.
(You gotta do this after you brown the vermicelli)
Once the Rice-A-Roni/Beef/Onions are cooked set that aside.

Wash, top and clean out the peppers.
Sprinkle the seasonings you want for the peppers inside
(Sparingly)
Place the peppers in a square baking dish
Spoon some rice/meat mixture into the peppers
add a light layer of the shredded cheese
add some bacon bits
Spoon some more rice/meat mixture in and repeat till the peppers are all full.
Pour the spaghetti sauce over the peppers
Spray some aluminum foil with cooking spray
Cover the stuffed peppers with the foil, spray side against the peppers

Bake at 350 till the peppers are done and the cheese is melted.
(Appx. 10-15 minutes)
Uncover and sprinkle more shredded cheese and seasonings on top of peppers
Bake another 10 minutes or so.

Serve with a crusty Italian bread
Sprinkle the Romano/Parmesan cheese on top.

Try this variation Its good too:

Substitute the beef for chicken breast
Use a chicken Rice-A-Roni flavor
Substitute the spaghetti sauce for Alfredo
Use shredded cheddar or taco blend cheese.

TIP: Cooking Ground Beef, Pork & Chicken

Do not break up the ground meat right away. Let it cook for a bit as a hunk, flip it and cook it as a hunk on the other side.

Then take a spatula or wooden spoon and break that chunk into smaller but substantial chunks about 1 inch in size. Add your onions, garlic and your seasonings and cover the pan. when done, you should drain it and you will have chunks of seasoned ground meat for whatever you are making.

When you cook down ground meat in a sauce it gets small. It still tastes okay but there is no substantial hunks of meat to actually sink your teeth into. This way gives you a nice separation of the meat from the sauce while still giving you some cookdown.

Try it with:

Rice-A-Roni
Chili
Tacos & Burritos
Spaghetti
Cream soup & Egg Noodles


Stuff it into manicotti shells with cheese & spaghetti sauce

Wrap it in cabbage


I buy my hamburger meat in those 1 lb rolls. I use a wooden spoon to split the roll down the center then cut it into chunks. Once I have the roll divided up I add my onions, peppers garlic & spices. I dripple some red cooking wine & wortershire and a few drops of rice vinegar or basalmic vinegar then cover and simmer till the burger is cooked thru. Drain and add that to my sauces.


Mixing ground beef and pork sausage is another variation. Ya just gotta get the mix to hold together long enough for it to be cut apart in the pan.


You can also mix ground chicken with seafood meat. Shrimp, Lobster & crab meat is kinda expensive. Mixing ground chicken with it makes a little go a long way.

12.

TIP: Cooking Bacon

Bake Bacon in the oven for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Use aluminum foil to catch the grease. Store bacon grease in the fridge in a glass jar with a lid.
I use a cooling rack coated with cooking spray to keep the bacon out of the grease.
Season the bacon with brown sugar or cracked black pepper for better flavor (Use cajun seasoning=Awesome)

13.

Other TIPS: A Mish-mash

Did you know that if you cover ice cream sammiches with icing you have an ice cream cake?

Did you know you can make rice krispy treats with just about any kind of cereal and marsh-mellos?

Topping a hamburger with pizza toppings is a pizzaburger and those suckers are good!

Always let yor steaks get to room temperature before cooking them
Always let them rest after they are done

Keilbossa, rice, onions & peppers in teriyaki sauce is amazing

Chicken is NOT done till the bones stop bleeding

Crushed Ice, Capt Morgan Spiced Rum & Rootbeer

Is Freakin Awesome!
