Healthy Crockpot Pulled Beef Rice Bowl (1)

Healthy Crockpot Pulled Beef Rice Bowl #SundaySupper

I have literally made this Healthy Crockpot Pulled Beef Rice Bowl THREE times over the past three weeks! We are all about this easy and delicious, and inexpensive dinner! I have been serving it over rice, riced-cauliflower, sauteed kale or spinach…the gravy…ooo. So good. The leftovers…even better. You will want to make this, and STAT if you

a) are busy and looking for an easy meal
b) want an inexpensive meal to feed your family or
c) are trying to eat healthily and want something delicious and a change from “just chicken”.

My friends, this is your guy!Healthy Crockpot Pulled Beef Rice Bowl (1)

Healthy Crockpot Pulled Beef Rice Bowl

1-2 lb. steak (I use London Broil or Bottom Round- whatever is on sale!)
1 onion, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced (or for this 3rd time, I used 1 cup of frozen, sliced mixed peppers)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
1/4 tsp. chili powder

Spray your CrockPot. Cut the steak in half and put in the bottom of the pot. Add the rest of the ingredients on top.Healthy Crockpot Pulled Beef Rice Bowl

Cover. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours (though I have never done that!) When it’s done, shred right in the pot using two forks. Stir with the juices. {This is the beef, and it’s done!}

Prepare your rice according to directions on the bag/box for however many servings.

If you want additional veggies, and I always do, saute some and serve alongside in your bowl. I use kale, broccoli, or zucchini or whatever leftover veggies I have left in the fridge, sauteed in a pan to heat up.

To put it all together, scoop about 1/2 cup of rice in your bowl. Add your veggies on one side, and a scoop of the steak with the sauce on the other. Garnish and serve!

I have to say, this makes the best leftovers. I eat it in an egg omelet- sounds weird, but it is SO good- the gravy is amazing, so once the steak is gone, save your gravy for serving over some vegetables.

Skillet Chicken Parmesan #SundaySupper

Reclaim Sunday Supper! Take the Sunday Supper pledge and make dinnertime a priority in your life. With all the activities and racing around that we all do, it is so hard to actually sit down to enjoy dinner with our families every single night- actually its pretty much impossible sometimes!

But Sunday nights or any ONE night a week, I try to make a family meal, that everyone enjoys, so we can slow down a bit and maybe share some time together at the table to reconnect and maybe, just maybe create some memories over a shared meal.

I like this Skillet Chicken Parmesan, because it tastes a lot like the one that takes hours to make in the oven, but it’s fast, uses one skillet, and is less caloric than the heavier baked chicken parmesan that you have in a restaurant. I also love this because I serve it with pasta for the kiddos and with some sauteed kale for my husband and I who try not to indulge in the pasta too much- we all win here! Serve with some crusty garlic bread for the kids and you are set! Enjoy each other and share some food!

Skillet Chicken Parmesan

Ingredients:

1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. olive oil
4 split and boned chicken breasts (or two whole boneless breasts)
3 8-ounce cans tomato sauce (no sugar, no salt)
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
extra salt and pepper for seasoning the chicken

In a small bowl, combine the basil, oregano, garlic and onion powders, salt and pepper. Mix. Set aside.

Using a serrated or sharp bladed knife slice the chicken in half like this:

Skillet Chicken Parmesan

I know! Raw chicken pic- not appealing, but I want to show you how to slice in half!

You should have 8 slices total. Season with the extra salt and pepper.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the oil. Saute three chicken pieces at a time, to avoid overcrowding in the pan, about 5 minutes each side, until cooked all the way through. Remove and continue until all the chicken is cooked.

Add the chicken back to the pan, overlapping the pieces. Pour the sauce over the top and sprinkle the spices over it all. Simmer covered for 5 minutes.  Flip the chicken pieces over and sprinkle the cheese all over the top, cover and continue to simmer for another 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Garnish with some chopped parsley and serve!

This serves 4 servings, of 2 half-cut breasts each person or 8 servings of 1-half cut breast. This recipe is easily doubled (or cut in half) and will serve my family of 6 (2 adults and 4 smaller eaters)!

Cranberry Sauce

T.R.’s Homemade Cranberry Sauce #SundaySupper

The Sunday Supper bloggers are honoring  T.R. Crumbley, a fellow blogger and friend to many, who passed away this summer. We are making some of T.R.’s recipes or creating a gluten-free recipe of our own as T.R. was a gluten-free recipe creator.

While T.R.’s site is not up anymore, his recipes are archived in the WayBack Machine- something Sue Lau, of Palatable Pastime, reminded me of- she thinks just like a librarian! As it’s name implies, the WayBack Machine has a record of old and forgotten websites. As a librarian, I have used it a ton, to find old sites that just disappear. Sue, reminded us of the Wayback as a place to find T.R.’s recipes and I am so glad that I can honor him in this way and make a recipe directly from his own recipe collection. This is an exact copy by T.R.:

Homemade Cranberry Sauce
POSTED ON NOVEMBER 27, 2010, UPDATED ON MAY 7, 2016 BY T.R. CRUMBLEY

Not for the diabetic

You’ll need:
– 1 cup sugar
– 1 cup Orange Juice
– 16 oz organic cranberries
– 1/4 cup dry white wine
– whisk
– pot with lid
– potato masher

Directions:
– Whisk together sugar and oj and bring to a boil on medium.
– Add cranberries and let boil until cranberries have popped
– Mash cranberries and add wine.
– Keep stirring for about 5, let stand to thicken and serve.

This is exactly how I did it, except I used non-organic cranberries. Just perfect. I love cranberry sauce – especially after Thanksgiving on my favorite sandwich, loaded with turkey and stuffing, and this yummy sauce- so good! This sauce is a 4-ingredient, 10 minute wonder…Thanks T.R.~

Here it is in my own words, and printable for you- worth making for sure!

“Knowing” someone only virtually, is a strange thing. I never got to meet T.R. face to face- but I chatted with him regularly…on Twitter in our Sunday Supper chats. Appropriately, this week is the last twiiter-chat for SundaySupper bloggers as we will no longer be chatting there on Sunday nights. The sun-downing of that social interaction, will hopefully bring new things to light, and hopefully T.R. would be honored by this. I am glad to have had the opportunity to “know” you a bit, T.R. Rest in peace~ For more recipes that honor T.R. and his gluten-free recipe legacy, check out the rest of the SundaySupper bloggers:
