Easy Family Dinners Are Closer Than Thailand

When you head to a winter resort, there is only one thing better than the skiing (or at least equal to it). This is - of course - the apres ski! The good news is if you choose to stay in La Tania you can look forward to frequenting many of the venues in town. You won't have to worry about how to get there, as everything is reassuringly compact here. There is no traffic in the village and it is just a short distance from the restaurants and bars back to the ski chalets La Tania is known for.

The easy slow cooker beef bourguignon treatments then need you to add the broth dust, tomato place and a touch of salt to taste. The mixture should be stirred for a few times. The cup of water should then be added into the mixture. The slow cooker crock pot beef stew treatments then need that the mixture is stirred constantly. This mixture should be progressively eventually left for about 30 minutes until it is wide and darker. The coffee bean should be offered and then the mixture stirred sometimes for about 10 times.

In a large stock pot, place leg bones and enough cold water to cover. Bring to a rolling boil, and boil approximately 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat, and rinse under cold running water. Thoroughly clean stock pot, and return cleaned bones to pot. Add 6 quarts of water bring to a rolling boil, and reduce to a gentle simmer. Add onions, ginger, star anise,cloves, cinnamon stick, cut up flank steak, salt, fish sauce, and rock sugar. Simmer about 1 1/2 hours, and remove flank steak. (Steak should be done through but chewy) Cool steak in bowl of cold water to keep it from drying out and turning brown. Refrigerate flank steak. Continue simmering broth for approximately 3 hours, skimming scum and fat from broth occasionally, and stirring bones from time to time.

Since we're dealing with high heat, I like to use coconut oil instead of olive oil to coat my pan (always better to use a saturated fat for high heat cooking). Throw in your minced garlic. When the pan is hot, toss in your beef.

Make a list so you can include your favorite canned fruits and vegetables. Pick a variety of colorful and sweet fruits like peaches, pears and mandarin oranges to satisfy the need for something sweet. Staple vegetables like green beans (even spicy pinto beans), peas, potatoes contain vitamins necessary to keep up everyone's strength. Canned items can be eaten cold if there is no stove available and no way to start a fire. Soups are important and canned meats, tuna, beef stew will all round out the menus you can create. Some foods that are too high in calories or fat for everyday use are good for short term survival situations because they supply extra energy and feel wonderfully decadent in trying times.

If you're an urbanite slow cooker beef bourguignon or someone who is used to prepared food like frozen dinners or grab-and-go restaurant meals you might want to stick with freeze dried meals or MREs.

If the chicken sticks to the bottom of the pan it's no problem because that beef casserole fond will become part of our pan sauce when we use a liquid to deglaze the pan.

Szechuan Chicken and Broccoli : Chances are very strong you've dined on this classic Chinese dish at a restaurant. That is truly unfortunate. Most Chinese restaurants will destroy the broccoli due to over-cooking it, not to mention the fact they will load the dish not only with MSG but also a processed gunk they call a sauce. When properly prepared at home, this is an incredibly nutritious meal.
