Mongolian Beef With Rice

http://twocooksonepot.com Mongolian Beef with rice

You all know how much we love stir fry meals, served up with fluffy rice. This Mongolian beef with rice is a wonderful dish with a slightly sweet taste. We don’t like it too sweet so that part is very individual. A nice crunch with the vegetables  which shouldn’t be over cooked. Spicy with the ginger and red pepper. Continue reading

My Favorite Burger

http://twocooksonepot.com My Favorite Burger

For some reason I’ve only eaten steak on the rare occasion. It isn’t that I dislike steak, it’s just that I like chicken and fish considerably more. I even went a year without eating beef or pork, and only started up again because at the end of that year I happened upon a blood drive and they almost wouldn’t allow me to contribute because I was borderline anemic. The nurse asked me if I was a vegetarian, and when she was certain that I didn’t have any moral objections against doing so she suggested that I start incorporating more red meat into my diet.

Chicken, Cheese & Tomatillo Enchiladas

http://twocooksonepot.com Chicken, Cheese & Tomatillo Enchiladas

We enjoyed a roast chicken on Sunday. I always enjoy the various meals I can make from one organic chicken. After the roast chicken I deboned it and used the meat for tonights dinner then put all the bones in drippings into a large Dutch oven and simmered for a couple of hours. Removed the bones, strained and refrigerated it so the fat would surface, thus making it easier to skim the fat off. This made a wonderfully rich chicken stock that was so dark it looked like beef stock rather than chicken. It will make a beautiful meal down the road but for now I froze this for use later on. Tonight with the chicken that I removed I made Chicken, Cheese & Tomatillo Enchiladas. I always make a little extra tomatillo sauce for a great salsa with chips for a weekend movie. It’s a real treat and the flavor is unmatched. There’s a little zing in the tomatillos that you just don’t find in anything else. Continue reading

Salmon Cakes

Salmon is one of our favorite fishes to consume, especially wild caught sockeye. It has such a wonderful flavor, so flaky and mild. It blends nicely with many toppings and we never seem to have left overs, darn it! It’s high in omega 3’s making it heart healthy as well. We’ve made it with pecan coating, teriyaki and many others, however this is one of my all time favorites. Continue reading

Oven Fried Alaskan Cod

Oven Fried Alaskan Cod http://twocooksonepot.com

Seafood has always been a big part of my life. Growing up it was almost always fried, so when I started to explore healthier versions of the things I love to eat I was often extremely disappointed in the compromise to flavor. I’m not disappointed in this dish. Continue reading

Homemade Pot Pie Recipe

Homemade Pot Pie http://twocooksonepot.com

Can I ask you a question? How many of you love Pot Pies? Do they bring back good memories for you? I assume many of you have had the store bought versions however, how many grew up on the homemade type? Well I for one grew up on the store bought version and I thought they were OK but not terrific. As time went by the meat and vegetables became less and less in many of the pot pies we purchased and more sauce. Have you noticed this too? Continue reading

How To Make Spicy Link Sausage

Spicy Link Sausage http://twocooksonepot.com

We’ve got a great recipe for a spicy link sausage to share with you. A number of years ago I discovered making my own sausage– Italian, spicy pork, and a chicken sausage as well as a few others. To say I had such fun making these (as well as eating them) would be an understatement. I don’t know why but I really enjoy experimenting in the kitchen and it’s so simple with savory dishes. Add a touch of this, a sprinkle of that… a pinch here and there makes life more interesting, don’t you think? As your palate experiences different flavors it just gets easier to expand and perfect recipes to your own taste. Let’s face it- cooking should be a fun and creative outlet. Continue reading
