Beef Broccoli

Beef Broccoli is one of the easiest dishes to make! Just start a pot of rice and dinner is ready in under 20 minutes.

BEEF BROCCOLI (6 to 8 people)

2lbs. fresh broccoli florettes/or frozen
Beef flanks

1/2 soyu sauce
1 1/2 TBL.garlic
1cup brown sugar
1 TBL. spoon ginger
1 cup water

Remove meat from pack and rinse. Place meat in hot pan and begin to brown. Add garlic when meat is nearly done. Just barely pink. Season with salt and pepper or lawry's salt. Remove from pan and place broccoli florettes into pan with 2tbl. water and place lid on pan for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove lid and add beef and garlic and soyu sauce, ginger and brown sugar with 1 cup water. Toss and season until flavors are absorbed. Add a little more water or soyu sauce to make a good broth and add more brown sugar or seasonings as needed. Turn heat up from medium to medium high. Remove when broccoli is still a la dente.
These measurements are all guessamations! I do a lot of my cooking by taste. If the sauce needs more tang I add a bit more soyu or if it isn't sweet enough I add brown sugar. If I need a bit of a different taste I sprinkle in a little more ginger or garlic. If the soyu is too strong then I weaken it with a half a cup of water or a bit less. Don't be afraid to try things out and change things up to the liking of your own family.
I did use a seasoning packet because I wanted to see if it was easier to use a pre made ready packet. YOU know what? It's not. I can do the same exact thing with the seasonings I have at home. But, If you like packet is very much the same. I just added more seasonings to our likening. Serve over steamed rice.

Chicken Cattiatore

I have had chicken cattiatore a few times and it should be made in a slow cooker. This is a perfect dish for company or on a busy night. A sure crowd pleaser.But, rushed the process and it came out Fan-tab-ulous!
I had the basic ingredients:

4 to 5 skinless boneless chicken breasts
2 cans tomato paste 2 cans water
4 cans stewed tomatoes
2 TBL spoons or season to taste (roasted garlic bell pepper seasoning blend) It is buy Mccormick and it comes in a spice jar
1 med to large onion, sliced thin
1 green bell pepper finely chopped
2 small cans of mushroom peices or 6oz. sliced mushrooms
2tsp. oregano
1tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp celery powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 TBLS. olive oil
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 Cup dry white wine

Place all ingredients in a slow cooker on low heat for 7 to 9 hours or high heat for 3 to 4 hours.

If you need to rush the process. Place chicken in a pot of water and bring to boil until done. Drain water and remove chicken.
In same pot add olive oil,onion, green pepper, mushrooms and white wine and cook until onion is translucent but slightly firm. Add all of the tomato sauces and paste and 2 cans water. Add all of the remaining ingredients and chicken and bring back to a simmer. Serve over steaming rice or pasta.
