I will say that I make my own little changes to most of these recipes, but generally, I stick pretty close to the original if it is good enough. The first three, I've made more than once, so they are part of my arsenal now. Ideally, I will get to the bread recipe before I die. Hopefully not from eating too much. If you're looking for new recipes, try these! They are easy.
Beer-Braised Beef and Onions
This is my go-to slow cooker roast recipe, and I love me some roast. My whole crew does, so I cycle it in about twice a month. Don't be afraid of the onions. I have a big onion hater in my family but they cook down and carmelize so much, you don't even realize you are eating onions. I promise you. The only changes I make are using two small roasts instead of one, adding some garlic powder when seasoning the meat, and about a 1/4 cup of red wine to the liquid. Yes, I mix beer and wine like an eager high school party hopper. It's good! Read the recipe here.
Marlboro Man Sandwich
This recipe comes from one of my favorite recipe sites, The Pioneer Woman Cooks. It's awesome. There are so many great things to choose from. This is our family favorite though, so far. Mostly because Erik likes it so much. He even likes it without the onions because the meat is so flavorful, but he has no idea what special element the onions add to the depth of flavor. It's amazing. Try it! It's so simple. Read the recipe here.
Picture me rollin'....dough? (Hopefully that hilarious reference isn't lost on absolutely everyone who reads this.) Okay, so I will admit I am intimidated by bread recipes. I have never tried one. I love bread, but I am new to baking and doughs frighten me. Maybe I can get an experienced bread baker to help me out one day. Until then, I'll just drool over all the delicious bread photography I see and continue to think that maybe its for the best. I eat enough bread as it is. But this looks good, right? Read the recipe here.
So, these are a few of my recently used, and a new one I've been eyeing. If you like my food style, follow me on Pinterest or FB because I will be adding new ones every time I see something that makes my mouth water. It happens a lot. You've been warned.
If anyone actually tries one of these, let me know how it turns out! And if you have a favorite recipe you've found online, share it with me! As long as it's not too difficult. Now I'm going to go eat my leftovers from last night's dinner. I made the roast, so I've been thinking about it allllll night. Later, folks.
