Greek Green Beans – Instant Pot (Fasolakia)

Greek green beans or fasolakia is a hearty, vibrant mix of green beans, potatoes, tomatoes and onion. Oh and feta, let’s not forget the feta. Salty, crumbly feta tops it off. How can this not be delicious? Well, at least that’s what I thought when I first heard of it. (Took me forever to say fasolakia – fas-uh-la-kee-uh) The problem was that the recipes I saw were on the stovetop and that’s not my gig – not right now in this heat anyway. So, I took a cue from my southern green beans recipe, because it’s green beans and potatoes…

Ribs and Gravy – Instant Pot

Ribs and gravy are the easiest, most delicious country-style-tastes-like-home-I-want-to-die-in-this-gravy thing you’ll make in your Instant Pot. And simple! I’m talking explain it to me like a 3 year old simple. Remember not too long ago I shared my boneless BBQ ribs? Well, it’s almost that very same recipe. It was actually born at the very same time on the same day. We did the ribs for that recipe and removed them to a pan to dress it and put it under the broiler. But then we looked in the pot and saw this liquid goodness left in the pot. What…

Instant Pot BBQ Boneless are The Truth! A true dump and go recipe that yields tender, magical goodness!

Boneless BBQ Beef Ribs – Instant Pot

These Instant Pot bbq boneless ribs will quite possibly change your life. Seriously. They are, as my friend said, “The Truth. They should be put in the Bible.” His words, not mine. The wife and I saw these in Costco and we were talking about what we could do with them. After running through plenty of options, like stabbing it with my large skewer sword or marinating them in a lime/cilantro situation, we settled on using the pressure cooker and hoped it would turn out good. And it was – crazy good. Crazy AF. “This is the The Truth. They…

Shoulder Tender or Teres Major Steak – The Most Tender Steak You’re Probably Not Eating

Shoulder tender or teres major steak – the most tender steak you’re probably not eating …? What kind of title is that? I know I could have done better with that, but it’s the only way I could put it out there in a way that you might want to click on it to see what the heck I’m talking about. Not that I’m a click monster, no. I just want you to know about this cut of meat. It’s to my detriment too, because just like oxtails and beef shanks, when this steak becomes mainstream, the price will skyrocket…

New Orleans BBQ Shrimp is so delicious, so easy, there is no reason why you shouldn't make it right now!

Authentic New Orleans BBQ Shrimp

New Orleans BBQ shrimp …. it’s not BBQ at all. I’m really not sure why it’s called BBQ. I’ve done some research but I didn’t find anything solid. You know what though? It. Doesn’t. Matter. It’s freaking delicious! It’s shrimp cooked in butter and beer or wine with a handful of other ingredients. I like it better with beer but some people make it with white wine. It’s delicate and super rich. Finger licking good really. You can serve this with grits or French bread. You can pour it over steak, which is my favorite. You can leave the heads…

Spicy red lentil soup - hearty, full of veg and totally healthy!

Spicy Red Lentil Soup

Spicy red lentil soup is both hearty and healthy! I may have mentioned before, we have “days” here on our food schedule. Souper Sunday, Meatless Monday, Taco Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday, Thirsty Thursday, booze OK, (and quite possibly taco Thursday). Friday and Saturday are wild cards, which usually means I’m shooting a video so I’m cooking things that I shouldn’t be. This spicy red lentil soup happened on Souper Sunday. Management and I just basically tossed some things in the Instant Pot and boom! I call it spicy, but if you don’t put the jalape√Īo, it’s not. We like a little…
