    DP's St. Patty's Day Irish Stew

    1 1/4 to 1 1/2 lbs. lamb cutlets or beef sirloin (1/2" cubed)
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/2 cup white flour
    1/2 medium sized onion chopped
    5 baby red potatoes, halfed then cubed
    3 long carrots cut in chunky slices
    24 oz. of Irish Ale
    1 cup red wine

    2 cups of corn
    1 cup of snow peas
    1 teaspoon rosemary (or to taste)
    1 teaspoon garlic salt (or to taste)
    1 teaspoon of black pepper (or to taste)

    Combine flour and garlic salt. Lightly coat meat cubes in flour mixture. Sauté meat and onion in skillet with olive oil. When meat is thoroughly browned, add 1/2 cup of red wine. Simmer for 10 minutes or until liquid condenses.

    Transfer meat, onions, and wine mixture to a stew pot. Add potatoes, Irish ale, the rest of red wine, carrots, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, and rosemary. Cook on medium to high heat at a boil for 30 minutes.

    Finally, stir corn and snow peas into stew. Cook another 15 minutes.

    It worked out very well. I love that recipe! The apple makes a lovely addition ...it just adds a little bit of *something* extra to the flavour which I really enjoy.

    No problem. Today I had some left over bacon from breakfast and through that in, too, with a little less ham, 2 slices of sandwich stuff.

    Great for all that zucchini people give away at end of summer.

    Zucchini Pie
    1 can of crescent rolls - open this and spread them out evenly over the bottom of a pie plate, crimping together the edges of the individual rolls to make one even smooth pie crust.
    Spread the bottom of the crust in the pan with 2 teaspoon yellow mustard.
    Cook and stir together the following ingredients for 10 min:
    4 cups thin-sliced or grated zucchini ( this is a summer veggie, usually late summer)
    1 cup chopped onion
    2 Tablespoons butter
    Stir the following into your cooked mixture:
    1/4 cup chopped parsley ( or 2 Tablespoons dried flakes)
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon basil
    1/4 teaspoon oregano
    Combine the following 2 ingredients, and then add them to the cooked mixture and stir.
    2 beaten eggs
    8 oz. shredded Mozarella cheese
    Pour this all into your pie crust and Bake at 375 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes.

    Every woman loves a man who can cook. ;) These onion buns are amazing plain (I'll generally eat sevarl from each batch while they cool) but even better if you slice them in half and put some fresh smoked pork shoulder on it, with barbecue sauce of your choice.

    Onion Hamburger Buns



    10 ½ cups bread flour
    4 cups milk (can be reconstituted powdered milk)
    1 ½ tablespoons salt
    ½ cup butter or margarine (butter powder and cooking oil can be substituted)
    2 tablespoons yeast
    1 large onion, minced (rehydrated onions will work well)
    2 tablespoons dry malt, sugar, or honey
    Enough extra flour to work buns.

    Scald milk and add butter, salt, and minced onions. Stir together and allow to cool enough to protect yeast.
    Dissolve yeast and dry malt in about ½ cup warm water and allow yeast to grow. When the milk is cool enough, add the yeast culture and add the whole thing to the flour. Stir until it becomes a stiff dough. Flour board and knead dough until smooth and elastic. Allow dough to rise in a covered turkey roaster until the cover lifts (about an hour in warm conditions). Turn out on a table and work just enough to push the bubbles out of the dough. Cut into 16 pieces and form into flattened rounds. Place buns on greased sheet pans, cover with plastic wrap, and allow buns to rise until doubled. Bake in 375° oven about 15-20 minutes. Spray buns with water to make nice shiny crust.

    Plain buns can be made by omitting the onions.

    These buns can be used as sandwich rolls or sliced on an angle and served as sliced bread or toast. Just the aroma alone will drive your family crazy. They will ask for them often.
