Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner

Last Week.

Last night, we had pork chops.¬† Tonight, I’m not sure yet. ūüôā

I wanted to share this easy recipe I prepared the other night. For us, it was a little change from the usual ground beef¬†fixin’s and you can certainly tailor it to suit your mood and family very easily.¬† I love the fact that its all done in one pan, and I used my trusty ol’ black iron skillet. The inspiration for our dinner can be found here¬†by Martha Stewart.¬†At times I’ve found her ¬†recipes overly complicated, but at least¬†I know they’ve been tested and are probably delicious. My version is perhaps even simpler than the¬†original recipe. ¬†My mother-in-law gave me a copy of her new All-American ¬†cookbook¬†and the recipes seem to be easy to follow and yummy¬†as well.¬† I’m looking forward to adding some new¬†meals to our usual repertoire.

I found the recipe here at All Recipes and made very few modifications. Continue reading »
