I am going to try this...and I hope it works. Every week I'm going to post our previous weeks dinner menu, hoping that some of you will comment and leave your dinner ideas/recipes from the previous week too!
***YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A BLOG TO MAKE A COMMENT!!
I'll keep posting my menus if you will do that for me! Last week was new recipe week, so don't be too impressed...I don't always cook like this.
MONDAY - Mongolian Beef served over fried rice
3 lb. sliced sirloin tip
Marinade of some sort - I used a Teriyaki one
½ c. sugar
¾ c. green onions, chopped
¾ c. soy sauce
1/3 c. sesame seeds
1 ½ tsp. garlic powder
1/3 c. oil
Marinate the meat overnight with the sugar. Just prior to cooking, combine soy sauce, green onions, sesame seeds and garlic powder. Pour over meat and let sit for 10 minutes. Cook the meat in hot oil in frying pan.
*My fried rice didn't turn out that good. I sorta just made up the recipe anyways. Does anyone have a good recipe??
TUESDAY - German Pancakes and hash browns
½ cube butter
1 c. milk

Melt butter in bottom of 9x13 pan in oven. Blend other ingredients. Pour batter into corners and middle of pan over melted butter. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes.
WEDNESDAY - Sweet Pork Salad
1 ½ c. Pace Picante Sauce (salsa)

Combine first three ingredients in saucepan. Heat until brown sugar dissolves. Place meat in crock pot and pour mixture over pork. Cook on low approx. 8-10 hours. *If more moisture is desired, mix together equal parts of the first three ingredients and add to crock pot.
Use fork to pull meat apart and shred it. Serve over tortilla with ranch (from Bajio or Costa Vida) lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, etc.
