Slow Cooker Cube Steaks Paprika #SundaySupper

This is comfort food. And frugal food. Cube steaks are an inexpensive cut of meat that works perfectly for a crockpot to tenderize all day. And also as a weeknight dinner that will feed a crowd. I love this recipe that sort of morphed from 5 other recipes that I make! It is a little bit BBQ and a lot of paprika- the flavors are over the top delicious! You can eat this over noodles or rice or even potatoes to sop up all the gravy that it makes.

Slow Cooker Cube Steaks Paprika

Ingredients:

2 onions, sliced (or one large)
1 small pkg mushrooms
6-8 Cube Steaks
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 TBSP. paprika
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1 can beef broth
1/2 cup sour cream (reserved & optional)
*garnish with sliced scallions or chopped parsley

Here’s what to do:

  • Spray your crockpot  thoroughly and turn on low.
  • Add the sliced onions, garlic, and mushrooms to the bottom of the pot.
  • Dredge the steaks in flour, pepper and salt. Set on top of the vegetables.
  • Sprinkle the paprika over it all.
  • Add the BBQ sauce and broth on top.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. When ready to serve, remove the meat and add 1 cup of sour cream to the crockpot. Stir until smooth. Add the meat back in and heat until the meat is warmed through- about 15 minutes more. Serve over noodles, rice or potatoes.

That’s it- we devoured this meal- The sour cream is totally optional- you can add 2 Tbsp. heavy cream or 1/2 cup of greek yogurt if you want instead.

Cheesy Cauliflower Soup #SundaySupper

Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

Do you love cauliflower? I love it as an alternative to potatoes if I am trying to keep my carbs down. I roast them as a side dish at least once a week with broccoli or other veggies-  Today the Sunday Supper bloggers are sharing their best cauliflower recipes to tempt us with plenty of ideas for making this healthy veggie. Thanks to  Caroline from Caroline’s Cooking  for hosting today’s great lineup for us! I decided to make soup, since I am sort of in soup-mode with my Weeknight Chicken Soup from yesterday and on Thursday I made my favorite Beef Stew.   I am freezer-stocked and ready for the cold weather!

This cheesy cauliflower soup is so comforting and cheesy, but lower in carbs than my Baked Potato Soup. It has the same, creamy and delicious flavor though, is totally vegetarian for Meatless Monday, and is simple enough that you can make it in 30 minutes!

Cheesy Cauliflower Soup


Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

Ingredients:

1 onion
2 carrots
2 celery stalks
1/2 a shallot, diced fine
1/2 head of fresh cauliflower, separated into small chunks
1 carton (32oz) vegetable broth
1/3 cup flour
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. of italian seasoning (or choice of oregano, thyme or basil)
1 1/2 cups low-fat milk
3 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese

What you do:

  • Chop the onion, carrots, and celery to small bite sized pieces. In a large pot, heat 1 Tbsp. oil to medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, celery and shallot and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add the cauliflower florets. Continue to cook for 4 minutes more.
  • Add the vegetable broth and cover continuing to cook for 15 minutes until the carrots and cauliflower are very soft.
  • Using your immersion blender or regular blender (in batches, be careful!) rough puree the soup. (Add back to the pot, if you removed it).
  • In a separate bowl, mix the flour and seasonings. Slowly whisk in the milk mixture to this until it’s smooth. Add this to the soup and let it simmer until the soup gets thick- about 5-6 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the cheese. Stir until melted.
  • Serve!

Crispy Rice Bites #SundaySupper

Crispy Rice BitesDo you love leftovers as much as we do around here? I usually make more than enough of all our meals so lunch is ready to reheat the next day. some things like pasta of rice get re-used in another recipe too, and that is both helpful to not waste food but also super economical.

In that light, I made these crispy rice bites sort of by accident. I was trying to make croquettes but the rice wasn’t cooperating to stick together- so I made these little bites, and they turned out great: soft on the inside, crispy on the outside.These rice bites are also an easy way to use up leftover rice and serve it again as a totally new side dish with dinner.

Since I made it sound kinda weird, I want to clarify: these are easy. No worries- croquettes are fussy and I wasn’t feeling like fussing. I just wanted to get on with feeding my family, you know? Here’s what you do:

Mix it up and scoop with a tablespoon:

Use the tablespoon to scoop into a hot pan:

Leave them alone for 2-3 minutes and then flip them once the edges get brown, and then push down with the back of the spatula:

Check out how creamy on the inside and crisp on the outside:

Crispy Rice Bites

Ingredients & How-to:

1 cup leftover cooked rice (I used Basmati)
2 Tbsp. shredded cheese (cheddar, parmesan or another hard cheese)
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground pepper
2 medium eggs (or just 1 jumbo), beaten
1/2 cup bread crumbs (panko or regular)
1 TBSP. oil for frying

  • To a large bowl, mix the rice, cheese, and seasonings together.
  • In a separate bowl whisk the eggs. Add to the rice mixture.
  • Stir in the bread crumbs.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet pan over medium-high heat.
  • Using a tablespoon measure, scoop the mixture into mounds into the hot pan. Don’t press down! Cook for 2-3 minutes. Flip over and then press down with the back of the spatula. Cook this side for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove and serve warm.

These are so easy and a yummy change from just reheating rice, don’t you think? I think this hand-held little cake, is a complete meal in itself with eggs, cheese and rice. It would be perfect for little kids who love to hold on to their food and have little bites to eat too- just add a veggie or salad and I would be good on any given night!
