In the summer: Grilled pork chops(at least 1" thick), rice pilaf, and a fresh veggie from the garden of some sort, maybe chard, maybe zucchini, whatever is ready.

In the winter: Pumpkin soup with beans and bacon.

yes, but was trying to make it for work days when you may not feel like spending more than half an hour cooking, as opposed to weekends or other days when you may have more time.

I make a pot of charro beans pretty often and some carnitas or shredded chicken. Then we just heat the beans up and throw the meat with some cheese in a tortilla and have beans n' tacos.

I steam broccoli and eat that.

I also make a stirfry of bacon and cole-slaw with teriyaki sauce.

Both takes about 10 minutes.

I had a classic bachelorette meal... paprika chicken and tomato & cucumber salad. Easy to shop for, and quick. My usual shopping list was just chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, and vinegar.

Take a chicken breast, thinly sliced, (or buy them whole and butterfly them, whatever) pound it down with the bottom of a coffee cup (didn't own a meat tenderizer). Salt, pepper, and paprika of your choosing on both sides. Drop it in a frying pan with a bit of olive oil... it cooks fast. Less than five minutes for the entire process. Always kept a big bowl of the salad ready to go in the fridge, it only gets better with time - tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, salt, pepper, rice vinegar. Boom, done.
 
2012-09-06 02:28:52 PM
Roasted chicken breast with garlic butter, roasted red potatoes with red peppers and goat cheese in grape seed oil, and pan seared asparagus in sesame seed oil. And beer.

Kid pleaser -- Porcupine Meatballs

Ingredients:

1 egg
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
1/4 cup long grain rice
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon minced dried onions
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 dash pepper
1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Directions:
In medium bowl, beat egg. Add 1/4 cup tomato soup, uncooked rice, parsley flakes, dried onion, salt and pepper. Mix well. Add ground beef and using your hands, mix lightly. Shape into 1-inch meatballs.
This should make about 20 meatballs. Place meatballs in a 10-inch skillet. Mix remaining soup with the water. Add Worcestershire sauce and mix. Pour soup mixture over the meatballs. Cook without stirring until mixture starts to boil. Turn heat to low. Cover and cook for 25-30 minutes, stirring very gently, occasionally.

Anything I can fit in a tortilla.

1) Cook up some pasta while a mafia movie is playing on my TV...usually my copy of Casino or Goodfellas....paired with a nice Chianti.

2) Cook a steak in a pan on the stove with some olive oil, paired with a veggie side dish and red wine.
 
2012-09-06 02:32:18 PM
one of my favorites is to take a fillet of salmon or rockfish or cod or halibut, about 6-8 oz per person, put in a braising pan and cover with either canned tomatoes or diced fresh tomatoes, a few cloves of garlic, some fresh or frozen okra in slices, harissa, and some white wine or V8 juice to cover, put a heavy lid on it, and put it in a 425° oven for about 30-45 minutes.

total prep time about five minutes.

Very simple:

Get some ground Italian sauasge. If the store doesn't have any, I just buy the uncooked links, cut open the casing, and dump out the sausage inside.

Cook with some garlic. Then dump that into your favorite pasta sauce (homemade or store bought). Add red pepper flakes and other spices to your sauce (if it is store bought). Otherwise, just let it heat up.

Cook your favorite pasta. Tubed shaped pasta works nicely here.

Mix and eat.

Simple and good, every time.

Chilaquiles -

Tear up about 10 corn tortillas, preferably stale, then fry them for maybe five minutes and drain. Heat up a cup of salsa in a skillet (I like salsa verde, myself) and then simmer the tortillas for a few minutes - don't let them get soggy. Top them with some quesa fresca, crumbled, some chorizo or some shredded chicken, a fried egg or two, and some shredded lettuce.

My simple pasta with red sauce is my go-to easy weeknight meal. It's simple, delicious, and takes very little effort.

1 Large Can Whole Tomatoes (preferably San Marzano or Glen Muir Organic)
1 Yellow Onion, peeled and halved
3 Tblsp Butter
Dried Pasta

(Optional: Red Pepper Flake, Fresh Basil, Garlic, Grated Parmesan)

1. Melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium-high heat.

2. Add onion halves to butter, and If using, add garlic and red pepper flake.

3. Pour in your can of tomatoes with juice, bring to a simmer, and then turn the heat down to medium-low.

4. Simmer for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally, using your spoon to break up the tomatoes as you stir

5. When finished, remove and discard (or eat) the onion halves, and salt the sauce to taste (also stir in fresh basil if using)

6. Serve over pasta with grated parmesan

Sometimes I'll make meatballs or italian sausage if I'm wanting a heartier meal, but the pasta with sauce is usually more than enough on it's own.

No. I make the stuffing, which is not just sausage in my recipe. Then I slice the green pepper and sautee it and then I mix it all together and bake it.

I use garlic and shallots....sofa king good.

CSB:

A local grocery store sells three ground meats packaged together.....veal, pork, and beef.....it's meant to be used for meatloaf. Instead, I'll use it for my pasta sauce and it is AWESOME.

Parmesan-crusted chicken:

Get 1 lb of boneless skinless chicken breast and filet them. Pound them with a meat tenderizer to roughly 1/4" thickness. Take half a cup of fresh grated parmesan cheese (this works best if you grate it yourself) and mix with an equal portion of panko bread crumbs. Season the chicken, dip in some milk then in the cheese-crumb mixture and coat. Meanwhile, heat up 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil in a skillet. Drop in one clove of garlic and cook until the garlic is browned, but not burned. Remove the garlic. Place the chicken and cook until just cooked through, flipping once. Serve with pasta and a small amount of tomato sauce.

As a chef, that's actually a fair topic. Typically, I fix something fast at work, before I come home. Lately that's been a lot of wraps. Pastrami, mustard, Swiss or provolone, onions, scallion, and some leafy greens. Occasionally, I'll break it up, and make a steak burrito--plenty of rice and fixings at the gig.

Before work, I usually scarf down a bit of yogurt and a piece of fruit. Keeps me from grazing all day long. Stoopid bacon bin, just STARING at me from above the flat top...

Tacos.  We generally BBQ a whole chicken every week.  Its just two of us, so there's plenty left over.  Shred that, keep it in the fridge.  Condiments are easy... tomatoes, avacados, onions, sour cream, cheese... those all keep well and are generally stocked in the fridge (and if something isn't it doesn't matter... put whatever you have on the tacos.)
 
I don't have some amazing recipie... but I'd recommend trying some interesting stuff like pickled radish, purple cabbage on your tacos.  Adds an interesting dimension.

Sprinkle a chicken breast (bone in, skin on) with with poultry seasoning, pepper, garlic powder. Cut a sweet potato into wedges, sprinkle it with herbs and spices, Cut Brussels sprouts in half. Toss in a bowl with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a little olive oil. Plate chicken skin up, Brussels cut side down, and sweet potatos however onto nonstick foil and shove it in a 350° oven.

Pour drink, turn on news, wander back into the kitchen 40 mins later. Eat. Drink more.

Take a hard boiled egg and encase it in uncooked sausage, roll it in bread crumbs and deep fry it until golden brown. Serve with a spicy mustard and booze. Because the Scots fry everything they can get their hands on and wash it all down with booze. It's a slice of heaven, I tell you.

For a "simple" meal, I slice a turkey breast into 1/2" thick strips. I put a bit of extra light olive oil in a skillet & heat the oil. Once heated enough, I then put the strips in the skillet. I season one side with Zatarain's Creole seasoning. While that fries up, I slice a tomato into chunks. I flip the chicken over in the skillet. Just before it's done, I toss the tomato chunks in there and sprinkle a little more seasoning on them.

As a side, I cut up a head of broccoli and eat that farker raw. I have about a tablespoon of Olde Cape Cod chipotle ranch as a dip.

I also have a glass of chardonnay with it.

Versatility is key for me, I can't stand to eat the same thing over and over. I'd have to go with chicken breasts pan seared in cast iron, with whatever veggie is on hand. The veggie can vary, the starch can vary, the drink can vary, but it's fast, it's simple, it's flavorful depending on the spice mood of the moment (italian angle one time, salsa for some spanish flavor another, or garam masala still another, etc), and hey, extra smidgen of iron in my diet.

Another vote for breakfast;

Biscuits and gravy. (I make killer biscuits, if you don't... buy some, I guess)

Pound of your favorite breakfast sausage
Leftover (strong) coffee from that morning
Dark beer -- alternatively whiskey
Chicken stock
Flour
Bacon fat if you have it, butter otherwise
Smoked paprika
Cream (or at least whole milk)
Your favorite Louisiana style hot-sauce

Brown sausage, don't drain
Add enough fat/butter to equal 3 TB
Add 3 TB flour, cook, stirring constantly until blond
Add 1/2 TB paprika, stir
Deglaze with the beer/whiskey. Reduce until pan is nearly dry
Add a half cup of coffee, a cup of chicken stock and a cup of cream (I changed my mind, don't use milk)
bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer for fifteen minutes
Hot sauce

Serve the whole mess over the biscuits, with some eggs

The part of the equation you are missing there is then the person would have to think about what they'll use to make the pasta dish, instead of having a box that has everything in place. Do not underestimate how much people value not having to think.

Sensei: Also, your favorite meatloaf recipe will cook in 30 min if you make mini-meatloaves in a muffin tin. Serve with steamed green beans and mashed potatoes


dang it.
I'm going to do that this weekend, I bet I could trick the neighbor's kids into eating meatloaf if I told thm it was meat cupcakes. (with ketchup frosting, too. )

Summer? Grill. Apply flame heat to meat (and vegetables... if you must...), and keep the house cool(er) while doing so! While some might argue that there is a touch of shame in using a gas grill, it is easy, convenient and fast, and quick-cook meats don't really gain much from being over charcoal.

Winter? If you have the time, easiest roast chicken ever. Ignore the flowery chef-enthusiasm in the recipe write up, and you have a rock-solid awesome roast chicken. You'll likely never buy one of those terrible, over-priced deli chickens, nor deal with a more elaborate preparation, again. 5 mins to prep, 50-60 in the oven, leftovers for tacos / soup / chicken salad / whatever later in the week. Use the hour in the oven to change out of work clothes, relax, consume gin and tonics (if you're feeling fancy... vodak and vodak if you're not).

If you're really pressed for time (say, you get a day or two off, but otherwise work 12+ hour days), look into getting a vacuum sealer and freezing soups, stews, chili, stuff like that in microwavable portions. Make 'em on the weekend, throw 'em in the freezer, then, when you drag your tired ass through the door, you can still manage to warm up something better than "aw, fark it, I'll just drink my dinner." And *way* cheaper and healthier than frozen food / canned crap / boxed meal additives.

/ I'd say "I'm surprised no one has said ramen," but I'm guessing ramen will be its own thread one of these days

When I'm cooking for one, I like to take a 1" cut strip steak fairly well marbled and broil it in an iron skillet. I coat the steak in a little olive oil, salt and pepper, and then broil it for 3-4 minutes per side. If there are enough drippings, I add a little water, whisk up the drippings, then drop a slice of bread or two in and let it soak up the drippings for brown bread. Accompany it with a simple salad. Takes about 15 minutes if you don't need a starch dish.

Egg Bhurji. It takes maybe a half-hour and I can pretty much throw whatever I want into it as long as i have the basic ingredients in there; onions, tumeric, tomatoes, egg (duh), spices.

I regularly throw in chicken and a bunch of other veggies and it pretty much never tastes the same twice.

xanadian: For a "simple" meal, I slice a turkey breast into 1/2" thick strips. I put a bit of extra light olive oil in a skillet & heat the oil. Once heated enough, I then put the strips in the skillet. I season one side with Zatarain's Creole seasoning. While that fries up, I slice a tomato into chunks. I flip the chicken over in the skillet. Just before it's done, I toss the tomato chunks in there and sprinkle a little more seasoning on them.

As a side, I cut up a head of broccoli and eat that farker raw. I have about a tablespoon of Olde Cape Cod chipotle ranch as a dip.

I also have a glass of chardonnay with it.


that's some kind of magic skillet you've got that turns turkey into chicken.

1.) Get a slow cooker. (Crock Pot)

2.) Let it cook dinner while you're at work.


Slow cooker Pork Chops with Dressing

6 Pork Chops (this recipe does not work well with completely lean chops)
1 Diced Sweet Onion
1 Can Cream of Celery
1/4 C. Water
1/4 TSP Pepper
Box of Stove Top Stuffing


Put the chops in the slow cooker. Add the dry stuffing on top. Next add the diced onions. Then the soup right out of the can. Add the water and finally the pepper over the top.

Turn the crock pot onto low and go to work. Eight hours later, it's done.

When you get home, steam a veggie and unbag a salad. Done.

I saute some chopped onion and garlic in a pot, then add boiling water and a package of Ramen. It's quick, it's not too terrible and the teenie bit of cooking involved somehow makes it feel quite a bit more gourmet than Ramen.

Although it's not really a meal, it's more like a "oh shiat I'm hungry because I forgot my lunch today so I better make something quick to hold me over until I get off my lazy ass to make dinner."

I've been making home made pizzas for dinner. Takes 2 hours total because the dough takes 1.5 hours but it has been so easy and so delicious, I'll never go back to frozen.

Baked chicken breasts brushed with virgin olive oil and sprinkled with seasoning of choice (use those shakers). Put it in the over for 30 minutes. At 30 minutes, fill the rice cooker, seasoning and butter. Cut chicken breasts in the center. Set oven for 20 to 30 more minutes (check at 20). Grab some frozen peas and carrots, put in a container and microwave for about 30 seconds or so (just long enough to defrost them, really, you don't want them too warm).

Serve with side of bread if needed.

That's a staple for me and my kids when I get home. Not too much work to do on it.

On days that i work out i want something quick and simple that's been prepped ahead of time so i only take 5 minutes once i actually want to eat.

Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork - fire and forget cooking at it's finest. Cooked on low for 6-8 hours in a crock pot on the Sunday before until the fat boils to the top (for removal), and then the rest basically falls apart. Add sauce (not too much that's where a lot of the calories can come from), seal and heat as you need some.

You can eat it by itself , in pork fried rice (oh lord thats good shiat), and in a sandwich with some coleslaw on top (only sweet slaw damn it). Makes for an meal that i usually pair with steamed veggies and a salad of some kind - filled with baby bella mushrooms, carrots, onions, and a few tablespoons of fat free bleu cheese dressing.

also, BAGGED LETTUCE CAN GO fark ITSELF. This brand of greens is delicious - put them in your face hole and feel healthy. Especially their spinach if i want to make some quick chicken pitas wraps.

They are worth "spicing' up a bit though.

I add veggies, chicken, and pineapple to the sweet and sour, I usually use beef and been sprouts with the cantonese, goat and onion with the korma and so on.

Even with frying up some sides, a whole meal for 4 can be made in like 15 minutes. It is awesome.

I mix it up. Last night it was "eggs in the basket".

First you take bread and punch a circle out of the center (use the cap off a spice jar). Then I melt a pat of butter on the griddle (one pat per bread) and lay the bread in the melted butter (coat both sides and the center pc). Then crack an egg in the center of the bread and cook it to your preference (I like over medium, the kids like over easy).

Serve with salt and cracked black pepper. Quick and good.

Tonight I'm doing a pasta dish (italian sausage with onions, garlic, flaked red pepper and mushrooms served in a red sauce over Ziti). Fast and good.

Lately is has been black bean salad:

Black bean dressing:

1/3-1/2 cup of canned black beans, drained

1-2 Tbsp olive oil

1- 2 Tbsp lime juice

1 garlic clove, minced

1/4 cup fresh chopped cillantro/corriander (or 2 tsp dried)

salt, pepper

1/2 to 1 tsp cumin

1 dash of chili powder


Mix together in bowl, adjusting oil to lime juice and cumin to cilantro to taste. Do not mash black beans.


Salad:

Lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, avocado, jicama. Onions of you like ( I don't). One handful of lightly crushed tortilla chips.

Pour dressing over and enjoy.

8 minutes, tops. And totally healthy.

If I'm feeling frisky, and know I'll be eating after work, I'll pre-prepare a coq au bin in the crock pot (chicken thighs, skinned, plus semi-crispy bacon, minced garlic, baby carrots, and mushrooms, all covered with a cheap red wine, cooked on low all day). If I'm not, ramen, topped with fresh-from-the-garden basil, shredded carrot, and sliced garlic, plus siracha sauce. Tasty and easy, filling enough to be a meal.

Cut up a tomato
some fresh mozzarella
and finely chop some fresh basil
serve with lettuce and olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Spicy beef, adapted from a pork recipe by Alton Brown:

Combine the following in a bowl:

2/3c soy sauce
1 tbs rice wine vinegar (or any vinegar)
1 tbs rice wine (or any white wine)
2 tbs honey
1/2c beef stock
2 tbs sambal chili paste (adjust amount to your tastes)
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbs corn starch (not really essential if you don't have it)

Slice steak very, very thin. As thin as you can. It helps if you throw frozen beef in the fridge before work and then slice it when you get home - it will still be kinda frozen and easy to slice. Add sliced steak to marinade and let sit for at least 20 minutes. This would be a good time to throw some jasmine rice on the stove. Also goes well with noodles.

Dump contents of bowl into a non-stick skillet or wok. Cook until beef is done to your tastes. Adding some veggies would be good too. Serve over the rice.
 
2012-09-06 05:18:38 PM

TsarTom: Another vote for breakfast;

Biscuits and gravy. (I make killer biscuits, if you don't... buy some, I guess)

Pound of your favorite breakfast sausage
Leftover (strong) coffee from that morning
Dark beer -- alternatively whiskey
Chicken stock
Flour
Bacon fat if you have it, butter otherwise
Smoked paprika
Cream (or at least whole milk)
Your favorite Louisiana style hot-sauce

Brown sausage, don't drain
Add enough fat/butter to equal 3 TB
Add 3 TB flour, cook, stirring constantly until blond
Add 1/2 TB paprika, stir
Deglaze with the beer/whiskey. Reduce until pan is nearly dry
Add a half cup of coffee, a cup of chicken stock and a cup of cream (I changed my mind, don't use milk)
bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer for fifteen minutes
Hot sauce

Serve the whole mess over the biscuits, with some eggs


Coffee and Beer in biscuits and gravy. I can't tell if this is wonderful or awful but I'm inclined to give it a try.

Add taco meat, shredded cheese, salsa and sour cream.

I use the pork as a base. I can make that stuff into a lot of different forms all week, that's why i usually only BBQ about half a pork loin so i have some to mess around with. Most of the time when i've tried to "plan" my meals i just end up going off plan due to stress / lack of conviction. Having a good "toolkit" of healthy options like pre cooked chicken, pork and other things makes being healthy easy. Choose protein, add greens, feel great.

Though....what you are cooking DOES sound good for every once in a while.

Spicy Black Bean Burgers:
1 can black beans, drained thoroughly
1/2 small onion
1/3 green pepper
1 jalapeno (w/ seeds!)
2 cloves garlic
salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder
1/2 cup panko
a couple/few spoons of flour

Mash beans into paste w/ a fork, pulse the veggies in a food processor until finely diced (but not further, then they get too liquidy), add to beans, stir in spices, panko, and then flour until it starts to bind a bit. Toss the mixture in the fridge for ~20 min (this is KEY for making sure your patties stick together). then form into patties and cook in a non-stick pan (or w/ a bit of vegetable oil).

I serve these on a pretzel roll w/ spicy mayo (mayo + sriracha), tomato, lettuce,sometimes guac if it's around, typically w/ spicy cheese (do we see a theme yet?).

My favorite side w/ them is to slice the kernels off of 2 or 3 cobs of corn (which i cut in half first to keep the kernels from flying everywhere), spread in a broiling pan, sprinkle w/ olive oil, salt and pepper...then broil at 500 for 10 min or a bit longer, until some of the corn starts to blacken. Very simple, unexpectedly tasty.

Also if people are over to watch the game we'll have a make your own quesidilla night where everyone brings a different topping. you can feed a lot of people for close to nothing.

My favorite after dinner meal is tikka masala. We just buy a can of the sauce premade, brown some chicken in a pan then throw it in with some peppers, make some white rice in the rice cooker and you have a full meal. We have that at least one week night a week

We do 'egg in the hole' here too...our favorite is with cheddar-jalapeno bread and topped with grated cheddar (I just add it a minute or two before they are done and it gets all melty m-m-m-m). I've tried it before with a thin slice of black forest ham between the egg and cheese and that was delicious too.

My quick and easy go-to is basic fried rice. Dice up some onions and peppers, toss them in a wok with some diced chicken and maybe some steamed lap cheong if I've got any, fry that up; nuke a package of plain brown quick-cook rice and fire it in with the rest, give it a few stirs and throw in some good soy sauce and a splash of sesame oil. Might throw in some frozen veg, too, if I feel like it.
Really simple, and really tasty after a long day.

bemis23: jayhawk88: Deglaze? Mincing? CILLANTRO???

Who are you people? What have you done with the normal Farkers?

Grew up?

Cooking isn't some black art. It doesn't take but a couple extra minutes to make tasty food that isn't overprocessed junk from a box.


Depends on who's doing it. My ex used to do some pretty amazing work on-the-fly.

You're right, though. My girlfriend cooks 6 nights a week and I couldn't go back to the processed stuff. Her meals are head and shoulders better than any crap I could get from a drive-through or frozen grocery aisle.

Also, we have both lost weight as a result of eating more balanced meals prepared at home.

Quick Sichuan Shrimp a la ThurmanMerman:

Take frozen cooked and peeled shrimp out of freezer and put in bowl of water to thaw.

Meanwhile, heat big pot of water on stove.

In a frying pan or wok:
Heat a little oil, throw in a couple of spoonfuls of sichuan peppercorns, fry for a minute or so until fragrant, pull out peppercorns with slotted spoon. Fry up some minced garlic and ginger in the oil for another minute. Add four tbsp tomato paste, two tbsp rice vinegar, one tbsp sugar and one tbsp sesame oil, and cook for around three minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.

Put thawed shrimp into the above and heat through. Meanwhile, cook thin rice noodles in the boiling water for two minutes and drain.

Shrimp and sauce on rice noodles + glass of wine = 15 minutes of cooking time and one very happy ThurmanMerman

Make some chili in the crockpot in the morning before leaving. Then when you get home, there's deliciousness waiting for you.

Or make a bunch over the weekend then keep it in the fridge, heat it up in the microwave for a few minutes when you get home from work.

(for two) square baking dish. frozen onions (or 3 peppers and onions blend) on the bottom, frozen vegetable in middle, frozen chicken or fish on top, then add whatever seasonings you want, add 1/2 cup of water, cover with foil, bake an hour at 400. easy peasy.

lennavan: I saute some chopped onion and garlic in a pot, then add boiling water and a package of Ramen. It's quick, it's not too terrible and the teenie bit of cooking involved somehow makes it feel quite a bit more gourmet than Ramen.

Although it's not really a meal, it's more like a "oh shiat I'm hungry because I forgot my lunch today so I better make something quick to hold me over until I get off my lazy ass to make dinner."

I've been making home made pizzas for dinner. Takes 2 hours total because the dough takes 1.5 hours but it has been so easy and so delicious, I'll never go back to frozen.


get fleischman's yeast and there is an excellent recipe for a 30 minute dough on the back of the package.

1 pound bucatini
1 bunch of flat-leaf parsley, leaves only
Pecorino Romano, for grating

add 1 clove (or more, to taste) garlic
return meat to pan with vegetables
add 2 15oz cans stewed or diced tomatoes and a tablespoon of ketchup
cook, covered over medium heat for about 5 minutes

Sauce (canned or homemade)
Dealer's choice seasoning
CHEESE!

Cook up meat, seasoning as you feel fit, add in sauce, from can, home made, or sloppy joe sauce....
Cook pasta as meat is cooking.

In a loaf type pan (i.e bread pan, anything deep), put a layer of pasta, cover with cheese, layer of meat, cover with cheese and repeat for the depth of the pan. Or just make a 1 layer dish.

Fast, cheap, super simple and HOLY HANNAH! it's filling like you wouldn't believe.

BullBearMS: 1.) Get a slow cooker. (Crock Pot)

2.) Let it cook dinner while you're at work.


Slow cooker Pork Chops with Dressing

6 Pork Chops (this recipe does not work well with completely lean chops)
1 Diced Sweet Onion
1 Can Cream of Celery
1/4 C. Water
1/4 TSP Pepper
Box of Stove Top Stuffing


Put the chops in the slow cooker. Add the dry stuffing on top. Next add the diced onions. Then the soup right out of the can. Add the water and finally the pepper over the top.

Turn the crock pot onto low and go to work. Eight hours later, it's done.

When you get home, steam a veggie and unbag a salad. Done.


crock pot meals may very well be next week's subject.

One box of Kraft Mac & Cheese (powder kind). Dump about 1/3 of noodles out. Cook remaining noodles for about 4 minutes, so they're not quite crunchy. While doing this, slice up a Koegel's vienna (or other, "natural casing" hot dog) into fairly thin pieces, zap in microwave on high for about a minute until they're damn near burnt and rubbery. Mix with undercooked mac & chz, using too much milk, so it's almost like soup. Eat out of pan you prepared it in, using the big spoon you used to stir it with.

/pure awesome!

everyone should try the ultimate steak sandwich:
1. cut the top off a sourdough loaf and hollow out the inside.
2. grill a ribeye and immediately put the steak in the loaf.
3.add mushrooms, garlic, and onions that you've sauteed in garlic.
4.top with a spicy mustard
5.wrap in butcher's paper and flatten it out using a cutting board
6. leave it all day to let the bread soak up the juices
7. cut it like a pie and enjoy

Let's see...

Baked basa fillets.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix seasoned breadcrumbs, dry minced garlic, and grated parmesan cheese in a bowl. If
you happen to have any Old Bay lying around, toss some of that in there too.

Take thawed basa fillets and roll in crumb mixture til good and coated. Place on greased
or non-stick baking sheet.

Bake @ 350 for about 20 mins or until fish is white and flakes easily.

A little "poor Farker's remoulade" (tm) is awesome with this:

Mayo
Dijon mustard
relish

Mix it all up. Play with the ingredient ratios to taste. I like mine a smidge more mustardy
than mayo-y.

A package of steamer veggies and side of choice (white rice, butter & herb rice, etc...)
completes this quick and tasty meal.

2. Open the fridge and discover that the carton of milk that you've purchased and labeled with your name is missing.

We call it "Mexican dinner".

Basically, take a half pound of ground beef, brown and drain it.

Chop up half a red onion, one bell pepper, several jalapenos, and add them to the ground beef. Mix in a can or two of diced tomatoes and perhaps a small can of tomato paste. Season with taco spice as well as black pepper, cayenne or any other spices you prefer. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Grate cheddar or pepper jack cheese, shred some lettuce, chop onions and put in separate bowls. Put corn chips on a plate, and spoon the meat mixture over the chips. Add cheese, salsa, onions and lettuce to the plate, and mix together before eating.
 
2012-09-06 06:06:51 PM
to be easy.

here's a good salmon filet: roast fennel seeds, put in mortar and pestle, grind fennel seeds with a little brown sugar and salt. season fish. bake at 450-500 for short period of time (less than 10 minutes, depending on size of fish and efficiency of oven)

here's a good white fish (like halibut, or whatever): put spinach or arigula in baking dish. put down lemon slices. put fish on top of lemon slices. salt and pepper. bake at high temperature till done (450-500 for like 10 minutes, depending on fish. i'm making these times up, btw... i just now when it's ready).

while fish is baking: either make a salad with some homemade dressing* or smother some greens (spinach, kale, chard, collard, or something else -- add garlic late in the smothering, even if that's antithetical, i like it that way -- although, you could infuse the oil with garlic, remove the garlic, and do it that way, but too much work)

boom, dinner in 15 minutes. it would take you longer to wait in line at a mcdonald's drive-thru and cost about the same.

* homemade salad dressing:
minced garlic, dijon mustard, olive oil, lemon, vinegar, salt, pepper (add oil slowly while stirring, mix all ingredients to taste... I have no measurements, I eyeball it.). you can add mayo too. should be somewhat runny. sometimes I add fresh ginger.

OLD BUTT TACOS


Leftover BBQ (Pork butt, get it?)
Cumin
Chopped Onion
Cilantro
shred cabbage
tomato
sour cream
hot sauce
corn tortillas

Chunk up that left over BBQ, if it's not pulled already. Throw it in a pan with some diced onion a bunch of cumin and a little oil. Other spices to taste - black pepper is good. When the oil is used up throw in some water to stew the meat.

In another pan heat the tortillas dry over medium heat. This is the authentic method to make them pliable enough to bend, but with a tough outer skin so they don't come apart in your hand

When the meat is good and soft, and there is a bit of gravy, take a couple tortillas in your hand, partially overlapping. Load with pork, cabbage, etc. Dash of salt and it's ready to go.
 
2012-09-06 06:07:35 PM
Easy peasy: Zatarain's Red Beans and Rice, done to package instruction specs, add chopped Bell pepper, onion, garlic. Cheapo smoked sausage, diced, goes into the pot @ boil time. For better or worse, it counts as authentic N'Awlins.
Something that may be amped up w/ hot sauce, boiled shrimp, etc. (GF loves it.)

Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork - fire and forget cooking at it's finest. Cooked on low for 6-8 hours in a crock pot on the Sunday before until the fat boils to the top (for removal), and then the rest basically falls apart. Add sauce (not too much that's where a lot of the calories can come from), seal and heat as you need some.

You can eat it by itself , in pork fried rice (oh lord thats good shiat), and in a sandwich with some coleslaw on top (only sweet slaw damn it). Makes for an meal that i usually pair with steamed veggies and a salad of some kind - filled with baby bella mushrooms, carrots, onions, and a few tablespoons of fat free bleu cheese dressing.

also, BAGGED LETTUCE CAN GO fark ITSELF. This brand of greens is delicious - put them in your face hole and feel healthy. Especially their spinach if i want to make some quick chicken pitas wraps.

soosh: BullBearMS: 1.) Get a slow cooker. (Crock Pot)

2.) Let it cook dinner while you're at work.


Slow cooker Pork Chops with Dressing

6 Pork Chops (this recipe does not work well with completely lean chops)
1 Diced Sweet Onion
1 Can Cream of Celery
1/4 C. Water
1/4 TSP Pepper
Box of Stove Top Stuffing


Put the chops in the slow cooker. Add the dry stuffing on top. Next add the diced onions. Then the soup right out of the can. Add the water and finally the pepper over the top.

Turn the crock pot onto low and go to work. Eight hours later, it's done.

When you get home, steam a veggie and unbag a salad. Done.

crock pot meals may very well be next week's subject.


What about sous vide? It's slow cooked like a crock pot, but you're not stuck with everything being a stew or meat plus goop.

soosh: crock pot meals may very well be next week's subject.


I'm in favor. It's hard to beat a crock pot for easy meal making on work days.

Although, as others have mentioned, pressure cookers are pretty awesome ways to speed up cook times. (and improve flavor)

The other trick is to work ahead on weekends and make a couple of things that can sit in the fridge or go into the freezer and will reheat well. Heck, some things get better as they sit in the fridge.

Add in the trick of laying out everything you're going to wear to work the next day before you go to bed and your day to day stress will be much reduced.

Open a box of Zatarain's and follow the directions.

While it's cooking, cut up some sausage (i use hot links and adouille) and brown them in a frying pan, then toss them in in the Zatarans.

Cut up some onions and peppers and saute them in the same frying pan, add a lttle garlic and oil if you need to. Throw these in the pot.

Add cooked ham and cooked chicken breast (I'm lazy, so I use stuff from the deli section of the supermarket).

Throw in one can of kidney beans and a can of diced tomatoes.

antidumbass: Easy peasy: Zatarain's Red Beans and Rice, done to package instruction specs, add chopped Bell pepper, onion, garlic. Cheapo smoked sausage, diced, goes into the pot @ boil time. For better or worse, it counts as authentic N'Awlins.
Something that may be amped up w/ hot sauce, boiled shrimp, etc. (GF loves it.)


Red Beans and Rice

Three cans of Red Beans
One can of Rotel Tomatoes
One package of Cajun Style Smoked Sausage

Slice up the Sausage. Dump it and everything else in a pot. Heat.

Make some rice.

Surprisingly good for nearly zero effort.

East Indian style coconut curry vegetable stew (microwave)

Ingredients:

The rest of those carrots in the crisper that you need to use up.
The rest of those sliced baby Bella mushrooms that you need to use up.
Two small yellow onions.
5 jalapeño peppers (I grew these!)
3 medium potatoes
1 small can (5.6 fluid oz) coconut milk
A couple tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)
Salt (to taste)
Ground turmeric (didn't measure, probably couple of tablespoons)
Ground red chili (East Indian red "chili powder") (didn't measure, probably half a tablespoon)
Ground coriander (didn't measure, probably a tablespoon)
Ground cumin (didn't measure, probably couple of tablespoons)
Whole cumin (didn't measure, maybe a teaspoon to half a tablespoon)
garam masala (didn't measure, probably couple tablespoons)
Ground cardamom (didn't measure, probably a tablespoon or so)

Basmati rice, 1 cup dry = about 3 cups prepared. (cook on the stove while preparing the stew)

Cooking:

Clean and slice carrots to desired size. I like mine fairly large chunks. Put in large covered microwavable casserole and cook for about 5 minutes to get about half done.

Set aside in a separate dish, wiping out the casserole.

Wash, pierce and bake the potatoes, just until the skin wrinkles up and set aside to cool. Should take about ten minutes or so at most, in the microwave.

While the potatoes are cooking, coarsely chop the onion. Core and slice the peppers into the same bowl with the onion. Set aside.

Let the potatoes cool in some cold water, so that you can peel and dice them without burning yourself.

Remember the casserole dish? Put the ghee and all the spices in there. Cover and microwave for 4 to 5 minutes. You want it to sizzle. When/if you see/hear the whole cumin seed starting to pop, it's ready.

Add the onions and peppers and coconut milk to the casserole. Be prepared for a loud sizzle when you do!

Stir, cover, microwave for 5 minutes or so.

Add the diced potatoes (you DID dice them at some point while something else was cooking, right?) and the carrots to the casserole.

Stir to coat, cover, microwave for 3 or 4 minutes. Add salt if desired.

Add the mushrooms. Stir to coat, cover, microwave for 2 or 3 minutes.

Fluff the rice. Serve stew over rice. Makes four nice servings.

Open a box of Zatarain's and follow the directions.

While it's cooking, cut up some sausage (i use hot links and adouille) and brown them in a frying pan, then toss them in in the Zatarans.

Cut up some onions and peppers and saute them in the same frying pan, add a lttle garlic and oil if you need to. Throw these in the pot.

Add cooked ham and cooked chicken breast (I'm lazy, so I use stuff from the deli section of the supermarket).

Throw in one can of kidney beans and a can of diced tomatoes.

Total time, 25 minutes


The problem with Zatarans is the amazing amount of sodioum

I made meat-fried-rice tonight, chopped up some cooked turkey while I quick fried an egg in a big high-sided frying pan, chopped it with the spatula and took it out. Then I sauteed some onions in oil in the same pan, threw in the chopped turkey, some peas, the chopped egg, yesterdays leftover rice, some cayenne and some soy sauce and flung it around over high heat for a few minutes. The secret to good fried rice is to use leftover rice that has dried a tiny bit and make sure you stir it in the oil before you add the soy. You don't need much oil but make sure to mix it in before you add any other liquid.

Really simple salad:

Fresh, mixed lettuce (no farking iceburg, thank you very much)
Half of a small, thinly-sliced onion
Sliced tomato
Fresh fennel, chopped fairly fine
Hass avocado, sliced
Fresh lemon zest
Cavender's Greek Seasoning
Shredded Asiago cheese
Olive oil
Red wine vinegar

Wash and spin greens and place in bowl. Add onion, tomato, fennel, avocado. Sprinkle with lemon zest to taste. Lightly sprinkle Greek seasoning, add cheese, add oil and sprinkle vinegar to taste. Toss.

Enjoy salad with good, fresh bread (not Wonderbread!) and a glass of good Cabernet.

Remember: you should taste the salad, not only oil and vinegar.

STACK-IN-THE-POT STEW

(Extremely easy and a cheap meal that's really good!)

1 lb. ground beef 1 large clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. seasoned salt 1/8 tsp. pepper
½ cup chopped onion 1 tomato, cut into cubes
1 can black-eyed peas, not drained

Lightly brown ground beef in 3-quart saucepan. Stir in garlic, salt and pepper.

Layer onion and tomatoes on top, then pour on black-eyed peas, liquid and all.

Reduce heat, cover and simmer without stirring for about 30 minutes. Stew is done when the tomatoes are cooked.

Ladle into serving bowls and top with grated cheddar cheese.

This is good served with cornbread.

Stacked Enchiladas
(This was a wintertime go-to when my kids were young, takes about 30 minutes altogether)

1 lb. hamburger 1 can Ranch Style beans
1 can Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce ½ can water (either can)
½ cup chopped onion shredded lettuce
diced tomato grated cheddar cheese
salt & pepper corn tortillas

Brown hamburger meat, salt & pepper with about half of the chopped onion. Drain grease. Add enchilada sauce, Ranch Style beans and half a can of water. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 15-20 minutes. Immerse one or two tortillas in the mixture for about 1 minute, until soft. Using a pancake turner, remove softened tortilla from mixture onto plate and spoon the meat/bean mixture on the tortilla. Top with grated cheese, then lettuce, then tomatoes, then onion.

You can make these double-decker for a bigger appetite by putting one tortilla then meat & cheese, then another tortilla, meat, cheese and the garnishes.

Microwave safe dish.
Layer slices of orange, lemon and onion (sweets if you have them)
Coat both sides of tilapia or other white fish with Old Bay
You may want to add a little extra fluid, perhaps white wine or lemon juice to help with the steaming.
Cover with plastic wrap
Microwave till done.
Would be good with rice.

Also works with microwave steamer bags.

Also works in foil on a grill/campfire

This also works with fresh trout, BTW. In addition to the bed, put slices in the trout's guts before sealing the foil.

I've got a few of these.

Quick meat sauce -

1 can Del Monte tomato sauce (crappy on its own, but great as a base)
1/2 pound ground beef or sausage
Garlic powder
Oregano
Pepper
Chopped onions

Brown the meat, dump the can of sauce over the meat, add garlic, oregano, pepper, and onions. Heat the sauce at medium temperature until bubbling, and lower to a simmer until your pasta of choice is done cooking.


Grilled corn on the cob

Butter or margarine
Garlic
Seasoning salt
Pepper

Melt the butter, add generous amounts of the spices above.Tear off foot-long sheets of aluminum foil. Place the ears of corn individually on the sheets of foil. Brush each cob generously with the butter mixture. Roll the ears of corn up in the foil. Grill for about 25-30 minutes, turning the corn every 6-7 minutes.


Mojo chicken fajitas

Chicken breasts
Mojo marinade
Tortillas
Fajita fixings

Dice chicken breasts the night before, place into a plastic container or freezer bag. Add enough of the mojo to cover the chicken fully. Cook the chicken in a pan until done. Heat tortillas, prepare with your choice of fajita ingredients

Wasabi soba.

Cook buckwheat noodles.
Saute whatever veggies you have in some vegetable oil and a few drops of sesame oil.
Mix wasabi and soy sauce to taste. We are up to about two tubes with a quarter cup or so of soy sauce. We keep inching up. At some point it will be inedible, and we want to back off .001% from there (we loves us some wasabi).
Stir in sauce
Add noodles to the veggies and sauce and stir until hot and covered in sauce.
Remove all from the pan
Add whatever meat you have. Our order of preference: sushi grade tuna, chicken, pork, steak.

Put in bowl and scatter some toasted sesame seeds over the top.

Only non-pantry things in there are: wasabi and buckwheat noodles (although both are in our pantry). Everything else is whatever you have on hand.

Best chicken wings ever:

Chop winglets off the drummie and wing and place in baking dish usually 2 to 4 pounds. Cover in either teriyakli or buffalo marinade. Cover dish with foil and cook in the oven for 1 hour at 350. Remove and spoon out the grease and toss wings in a stainless bowl with the same marinade. place dish under the broiler watching til they get your desired blackness. Will be the tenderest wings you've ever eaten.

Steam or pan sear some asparagus while soft frying an egg in olive oil. Put asparagus on plate, put the egg on top, finish with grated parmesan. Boom...quick and easy.

Toast eggs (egg in a basket, toad in a hole, egg in a frame, whatever you want to call it) are also a great go-to.

I like eggs.

On Sunday, sometimes I'll put chicken breasts and my favorite bbq sauce in the slow cooker. Top it off with big chunks of onion and green pepper for extra tastiness. Set on low for 6 or 7 hours. One night we'll have sandwiches with it, next day in my tupperware with some frozen veggies to heat up in the microwave for work day lunch #1. Another night I'll make chicken nachos and finally I'll have it over salad with ranch or blue cheese dressing for workday lunch #2. Easy and it tastes pretty good!.

My favorite meal after work is pork stir fry(it's not a traditional stir fry, more of a quick braise with veggies and rice). I cook rice once a week and use it in most meals, so that may add to the time of this.
Pork Chops- 1/4 inch cut is what I use for speed
Salt
Pepper
Onion powder
Chili powder - Take all of these and dust your chops, begin cooking in your wok (or 12 inch skillet if no wok) with a rough chopped white onion. Add Sriracha(I use probably 3-4 Tbsps for extra spicy), soy and a can (small) of pineapple chunks with the juice. Cover and cook on medium heat. Go sit down for 10 minutes, catch the news or sports and drink a beer. Come back with the following:
Bags of frozen snow peas, broccoli, and carrots
Can of Water Chestnuts (water drained)
Add the frozen veggies and Water Chestnuts to your now boiling mixture of sweet and spicy pork, turn the heat up to medium high, cook with the lid off, and stick around. If you have a wok, move your chops to the edge and let that spicy pineapple pork mixture cook into your veggies. Add some more salt and pepper, and if you want, some garlic power(or 1 clove, crushed and chopped). Soon all of the juice will start evaporating, and the veggies will begin to caramelize, stir consistently and add rice. (You may want to remove the chops entirely, and begin cutting them up. Or leave them whole, it's good either way, I just prefer the sliced pork.) Let your rice heat up ( Trust me on this, rice in stir fry works better if it is cold first.), then you can serve in wok or plate it. Super delicious and if you make the rice prior, it takes around 20-30 minutes.

Stir-fry using instant rice or noodles. not much of a recipe. Take your meat and season it with what you like. I use soy sauce, pepper, garlic, ginger and a little curry. (SHUT UP!) and I cook the meat, then I toss in a bag of frozen vegetables. Get those nice and hot and the ice and other water will cook off of them. Add a little bit of water. this will be your "sauce". Season it with beef or chicken buillion whichever you've made. Or pork. Or whatever it is. Season the sauce how you like it, then thicken it with water and cornstarch. Takes a grand total of like twenty minutes. I'll do this or roast on Wednesdays when my son has dance class.

soosh: hubiestubert: As a chef, that's actually a fair topic. Typically, I fix something fast at work, before I come home. Lately that's been a lot of wraps. Pastrami, mustard, Swiss or provolone, onions, scallion, and some leafy greens. Occasionally, I'll break it up, and make a steak burrito--plenty of rice and fixings at the gig.

Before work, I usually scarf down a bit of yogurt and a piece of fruit. Keeps me from grazing all day long. Stoopid bacon bin, just STARING at me from above the flat top...

My weakness as a chef was always being able to summon an order of coconut shrimp to be sent down my way whenever the mood hit me.


See, I don't like to have other folks make things for me. In part, because I eat when we have time, and often when other folks are covering the line, and in part because I'm trying to NOT eat a bunch of fried food and the easy stuff. Plus, making others do extra work is sort of against the "we're in this together" mentality that I try to encourage. I make enough pasta for the crew, and if they offer to make more when they get a bite, that's cool, but the food summons runs against the ethic that we roll with. In some kitchens that is normal, and even expected--back at Glendale Arena, Chef Jay liked to sample what folks were putting out, and the best way to do that was to spot check all the outlets--but ours is a small line, and it's a tiny crew: four guys and a dishwasher at most, and often just two or three guys, to cover saute, grill, fry and garde manger, so when one guy takes a quick break to eat, there's a lot of line to cover in their absence.

When I was at Mesa Verde National Park and with the Apollo Grill in Easthampton with Casey Douglas, we had sit down meals with the staff. Mesa Verde was before the shift, and usually with about 10-20 folks at a time, and at the Apollo we usually had 10-12 with the waitstaff and bartenders, so you had to make a fair amount of food at a time, and usually we all pitched in. Garde manger took care of a decent sized salad or vegetable, saute and grill did the protein and starch, and back to garde manger for a peck of dessert. It was really nice to be able to sit down with the crew together before a shift to just bullsh*t and relax before an asswhoopin' and at the Apollo, it was nice to grab a beer and eat a real meal with folks. That atmosphere bled away a lot of tension between the crews, because no matter how things blew up or how screwed up the waitstaff might have gotten orders, you knew that you were going to sit down with them, and it's hard to keep resentment over little stuff when you pass a plate together.

Crock Pot Chicken:

1 can of cream of chicken soup
rosemary, garlic powder to taste
1/4 cup of sherry

Stir all of these together in a small pan on a low heat. Once they are completely combined, your sauce is done. Throw some boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the crock pot, cover with the sauce, cook all day.

Goes great with rice. And you can even prepare it the night before. Chicken can be frozen or thawed, but adjust cooking to compensate.

Didn't read the whole thread so someone might have mentioned already, but pasta carbonara is really farking easy and so so good. The whole process takes basically however long it takes you to boil water and cook pasta. I like spaghetti or fettucine for this, personally, but it's not set in stone. Fry bacon, the more the better. Beat a couple eggs... like one per person I guess, in a bowl and add a lot (depends on taste, somewhere between a half-cup and a cup) of parmesan cheese. toss cooked noodles into the bacon pan and stir through, adding a bit of reserved cooking water if you like. Do this quickly -- when you stir in the cheese/egg mixture the noodles should still be hot enough to gently cook the egg. Add black pepper, and more parmesan if that's your thing. Eat. Yum.

cook up chorizo in pan.

heat corn tortillas (i heat them on a thick pan on high heat, dry)

put chorizo in tortilla, add queso fresco, cilantro, lime.

5 minutes to awesomeness (some people take a longer time to cook their chorizo... i'm too lazy and haven't noticed a big difference. i don't mind that some fat leeches out... it's a very fatty sausage)

/ for breakfast, add eggs into chorizo. then, i remove the lime and cilantro and just use a nice salsa. oh, and probably a sharp cheddar (preferably white) instead of queso fresco.

Shrimp and rice:

Heat skillet or hot plate
Coat 10 raw medium size shrimp (thawed) in olive oil in bowl (just enough to coat all)
Add cajun seasoning as needed to bowl (or blackened fish mixture or salt/pepper)
Start cooking Uncle Ben's Ready Rice: Long Grain and Wild Rice
Once skillet is hot, pour bowl contents into skillet and cook shrimp until done (don't over cook!)
Remove from skillet and serve with 1/2 of rice in packet. (more or less)
*Most times a vegetable is added. I usually add chopped broccoli with the shrimp as I prefer some crunch left in them

Serves 1
Time: 5-7 minutes (depends if shrimp are thawed or frozen)

I've made this with Popeye's chicken nuggets and with frozen popcorn chicken from Aldi.
Lots of ingredients but simple to make make.
Make sauce. Saute ginger and garlic. Add chicken and hot dried chiles. Add sauce. Serve with rice.


... okay, that's kind of awesome. I may have to try that.

Make a big batch of pasta sauce and freeze it in convenient quart containers. Then later you can defrost a container, boil up some pasta, and you're done.

Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork - fire and forget cooking at it's finest. Cooked on low for 6-8 hours in a crock pot on the Sunday before until the fat boils to the top (for removal), and then the rest basically falls apart. Add sauce (not too much that's where a lot of the calories can come from), seal and heat as you need some.

You can eat it by itself , in pork fried rice (oh lord thats good shiat), and in a sandwich with some coleslaw on top (only sweet slaw damn it). Makes for an meal that i usually pair with steamed veggies and a salad of some kind - filled with baby bella mushrooms, carrots, onions, and a few tablespoons of fat free bleu cheese dressing.

also, BAGGED LETTUCE CAN GO fark ITSELF. This brand of greens is delicious - put them in your face hole and feel healthy. Especially their spinach if i want to make some quick chicken pitas wraps.


Looks good. Do you use any liquid when cooking pork? If so how much?
Thanks, EIP
