I have one of those! I hate that you have to have a membership though, so ridiculous imo.

I have a great recipe for tomorrow! I was going to make it today, but it's a slow cooker thing, and I'll be gone too long :(

This is one of the recipes I don't alter and I make more than once

Sweet Balsamic Glazed Pork

Original link: http://www.melskitchencafe.com/2011/09/sweet-balsamic-glazed-pork-loin-slow-cooker.html



INGREDIENTS:
Pork:
- 2 pound boneless pork loin roast, trimmed of large fat pockets
- 1 teaspoon ground sage
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 clove garlic, finely minced or crushed
- 1/2 cup water
Glaze:
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, light or dark
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce

DIRECTIONS:

In a small bowl, combine the sage, salt, pepper and garlic. Rub the spices all over the roast. Place the pork roast in the slow cooker and pour in the 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Near the end of the cooking time for the roast, combine the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce and let the mixture simmer, stirring occasionally, until it thickens.



Remove the pork from the slow cooker, shred and place on a platter or plate. Drizzle the glaze over the pork and serve.



My creation: Put this together 15 minutes before I had to leave. Did the sauce and side dish (we did peas) when I got home. I put a lot of sauce on because I eat meat with my sauce, not sauce with my meat (if that made sense) lol. I also make it with mini potatoes, onion, and mini carrots. I set the crockpot at 8 hours low, and it was done in 5 hours.

Here's what I made tonight!
http://www.kraftcanada.com/en/recipes/baked-butter-chicken-115977.aspx



It's called baked butter chicken, it's an Indian dish so no there's no actual butter in it, lol. I forgot to take a picture, but it's so easy I'm sure everyone can turn out the same result (the link even has a video of how it's made). The only ingredient I didn't have on hand was garam masala but it's only a couple bucks in the spice isle. Another option is to Google what spices are in it, and you might be able to make it on your own! For the sauce, you combine 6 ingredients, pour it over chicken, and bake for 40 minutes. The sauce helps it come out moist and delicious! I would recommend making the same amount of sauce, regardless of how many chicken breasts you're making (unless your making more than the recipe calls for). It's got a bite, but can be tamed by either decreasing the cayenne pepper or putting less sauce on the chicken. - I take the sauce in the dish and pour it over the chicken when it's done. I serve it over rice, because the sauce is yummy on it!

I made steak last night, I couldn't find the marinade I like so I picked a similar one. I thought it was okay, but SO loved it!
Here's the link: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/the-best-steak-marinade/



I like my steak medium rare, and I recently learned how to cook it properly so I'll share it with you. Take the steak out of the fridge, and leave it on the counter for about 30 mins (room temp). Put some veggie oil in a cast iron frying pan, heat on medium high. Throw the steak in the pan until there's a brown sear on each side, remove it and put it on a cutting board, cover with tin foil. Leave the steak until you're done everything else, so it continues cooking. Voila! Quick trick, if you're not strong at cooking meat, use a marinade. This dinner took me 5 minutes to make the sauce, and 20 minutes to cook. Serve with beer :wink:



Here's my creation;

I'm not sure, I think it was T-Bone... I'm a fan of striploin myself :P



When I don't know what to make with chicken I do lime salsa. Cook the chicken in lime juice, season with salt and pepper. Just before it's done, top it with salsa so it gets warm. Love it! SO hates it, so I just leave off the salsa for him lol
