How do you Make Carne Asada from Scratch?

Add the olive oil, soy sauce, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, sugar, cumin, and black pepper to a large mixing bowl and whisk. Then add the garlic, cilantro, and jalapeno. Put your steak in there and coat it well, letting it marinate in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours to no more than 4 hours. After marinating, let the steak come to room temperature. Then heat your skillet over high heat and sear the steak on both sides, roughly 2 to 3 minutes per side so it browns. Lower the heat and cook to your desired level of doneness, then let the steak rest for 10 minutes. Slice across the grain and serve with those tortillas and toppings.

Expert Tips and Tricks for the Perfect Carne Asada Every Time

  • Lime is key in the marinade. This carne asada marinade helps tenderize the flank steak so it has a melt-in-your-mouth texture.
  • High-heat is important too. You want that skillet super-hot before you put the meat in it.
  • The steak should come to room temperature first though. If you pull the steak in the marinade from the fridge and then immediately cook it, it won’t get that brown crusty char on it that makes carne asada so special.
  • Slice across the grain. This ensures a tender bite!

How do you Make Salisbury Steak from Scratch?

Making Salisbury steak is easy. Start by mixing all the ingredients for the Salisbury steaks except for the oil in a large mixing bowl, then shape them into 4 patties each about ¾ of an inch to 1” in thickness. Heat your oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet, then add the steaks, browning 3 to 4 minutes per side. Move them to a separate plate then make the gravy by reducing the heat to medium and adding butter. When the butter melts, add your flour and whisk until smooth, then add the beef stock and whisk. Next, add the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and onion powder and whisk, followed by the mushrooms. Simmer for 5 minutes until it thickens, then season with salt and pepper. Add the steaks back into the gravy and cook for about 10 minutes until steaks are completely cooked.

This colorful stuffed bell pepper recipe is an instant classic! Fresh ground beef, rice, tomato sauce, and a balanced blend of spices bring this unique dish together perfectly. The baked cheese on top really makes these delicious!

Ingredients

  • 6 large bell peppers
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cup yellow onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 tbsp garlic (minced)
  • 1 1/4 lbs lean ground turkey
  • salt (to taste)
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • 14 oz can petite diced tomatoes
  • 4 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup Basmati rice (cooked)
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 3 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp thyme
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 385F and cook the Basmati rice according to instructions.
  • Prepare the bell peppers. Trim the tops off of the peppers and remove the ribs and seeds from sides. Place the trimmed peppers upside down in a baking dish and fill it with about 1/2 inch to 1 inch of water and cover with foil. Bake the peppers for about 20 minutes—this eliminates the additional step of boiling the peppers separately.
  • While the peppers bake, heat a large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Once heated, add the olive oil and heat that up as well. Once the oil is hot, add the onion and saute until slightly softened. Once softened, move to one edge of the skillet. Add the ground turkey to the skillet and season with salt and pepper and lightly brown. Toss the ground turkey and onion together and add in the garlic, tomatoes, half of the tomato sauce, rice, ½ of the parsley, and Italian seasoning. Season with additional salt and pepper.
  • Once the peppers have finished baking, remove from the oven and reduce the temperature to 350F. Drain the water from the baking dish. Turn the peppers right side up and fill with the ground turkey and rice filling. Pour the remaining ½ of the tomato sauce over the peppers and cover again with foil. Bake for 20-22 minutes.
  • Once the peppers have finished baking, remove the dish from the oven and sprinkle the peppers with mozzarella cheese. Return the dish to the oven uncovered and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the peppers are fork tender and the cheese is bubbly. Sprinkle the peppers with the remaining parsley and serve hot.

How do you make risotto from scratch

How do you Make Risotto from Scratch?

First, you’ll heat the broth up and set it aside when it’s warm. Then in a large saucepan, you’ll heat the oil so it’s hot, then cook the mushrooms. Once they’re soft, set them aside, then add more olive oil to cook the shallots. After about 2 minutes, add the arborio rice in and coat every last grain so it toasts to a golden color. When the arborio rice is golden, add the wine until the rice fully absorbs it. Then add the chicken stock slowly, waiting until it absorbs before adding more. Once you’ve finished adding it all and the rice is al dente, roughly 20 minutes, you can take it off the heat. Add the mushrooms, butter, chives, and cheese. Salt and pepper to your preference and it’s ready to serve.

What goes well with risotto

Expert Tips and Tricks for the Perfect Risotto Every Time

  • Don’t use regular rice. I beg you, go get a short-grain rice at the supermarket. Arborio is easy to find and makes for great risotto. The reason? If you use long grain rice, it won’t have that silky texture risotto always has. Plus, cooking arborio rice is just as easy as cooking regular rice.
  • Watch the broth. That broth needs to be warmed up, but not boiling. If you boil it, you’ll change the flavor.
  • Use fresh parmesan. You don’t make homemade risotto from scratch and use that shelf-stable junk. Grate your parmesan yourself and you will have restaurant-quality a creamy risotto recipe that’s so good, your family will hunt through the kitchen to see where you stashed the takeout boxes!

How do you make creamy risotto

What exactly is risotto?

Risotto is a creamy rice dish that comes out with a different texture than steamed rice. It includes parmesan cheese that adds to the creaminess and is often made with mushrooms which add an earthy balance.

What is the best risotto rice?

Arborio is the best risotto rice. If you can’t find it, choose another short grain variety of rice to get the right texture.

How is risotto different than rice?

Risotto is cooked by toasting the rice first in the pan. Liquid is added gradually, only adding more as it is absorbed. Rice is boiled in water until all excess water disappears, leaving it with a steamed texture.

What exactly is risotto

What is the secret to a good risotto?

In addition to fresh ingredients, the secret is in the technique. You want to stir enough to agitate the rice to make it creamy, but not too much. And you also want to add the broth in increments otherwise it will come out like rice.

Risotto is cooked on the stovetop. You’ll need a pan for warming the broth and a skillet for cooking the risotto.

How do you make creamy risotto?

Simply follow this recipe and you’ll make creamy risotto. The techniques here will help you get this tricky texture just right.

Do you cover risotto while cooking

How do you make risotto fast?

Risotto is a pretty quick dish though it takes some patience. You can’t rush the addition of the broth or else it won’t come out with the right texture.

What can you add to risotto?

A favorite addition to risotto is shrimp. Scallops are also nice, though some people favor cooked sausage. You can even add beans or an egg to it to add more protein without any meat.

Mushroom risotto recipe

Why is my risotto rice still hard?

Risotto should have an al dente texture, but it shouldn’t be hard. Make sure you’re slowly adding the liquid as instructed to get the right texture.

What goes well with mushroom risotto?

Sometimes, we enjoy risotto as a meatless meal but you can add seared scallops or sauteed shrimp to the meal. A green salad, parmesan-roasted green beans, Caprese salad, poached eggs with asparagus, and sauteed garlic spinach add more nutrients to this elegantly delicious meal.

Mushroom risotto with arborio rice

How to Store Risotto

Risotto should be kept in an airtight container in the fridge. It won’t last on the counter!

How Long Does Risotto Last?

Without any meat in it, risotto can last for about 5 days in the fridge. If you’ve added meat to it, even at the end like a topping of shrimp for example, you will want to use it up by 3 days.

Can You Freeze Risotto?

Well, you can, but it doesn’t mean you should. It will change the texture and it won’t be nearly as pleasurable to eat when you freeze it.

How to Reheat Risotto?

The best way is to let it come to room temperature, then put it in a saucepan with a little broth. Keep stirring until it gets the right consistency, then serve!

Expert Tips and Tricks for the Perfect Mahi Mahi Every Time

  • Use fresh fish. It really is the best way to enjoy this dish.
  • Make sure the filets are the same size. They should be about 4 ounces each and have about 1-inch of thickness.
  • Pat them dry. If you don’t, they won’t sear.
  • Get the oil hot. If you don’t get that oil super-hot, you won’t get a good browning on that fish. The browning adds flavor to pan fried mahi mahi.
  • Make sure the oven is ready. You want to preheat at the beginning so you can move the fish into the oven from the stove seamlessly.

Mahi mahi should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145F.

All told, it takes less than 25 minutes to make homemade hamburgers. They’re one of the best things to throw on the grill for family dinner or when guests join you. Once you see how easy it is to make the best burgers, you’ll always make them yourself!

How do you make hamburgers from scratch

How do you make burgers from scratch?

For your homemade burger recipe, start by adding your ground beef in a large bowl and add the Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. Mix with your hands without over-combining. Then divide the meat into fourths and shape into patties. They should be about ¾-inch to an inch thick. Indent the center of each with your thumb. Then cook over medium-high heat on your grill for 4 to 5 minutes per side. Add cheese if you like about 1 or 2 minutes before you pull them off the grill.

What is the secret to juicy hamburgers

Expert Tips and Tricks for the Perfect Homemade Burgers Every Time

  • Don’t overmix the meat. This is the biggest mistake people make with burgers. The more you mix, the less juicy your burgers will be.
  • Time it out. If you want your burgers cooked to a certain doneness, do not guess how long it’s been or you’ll either wind up with a raw center or something that is too well-done for your tastes.
  • Don’t squeeze the burgers. You see so many people squashing the patties down with the spatula. If you do this, you’ll release all the juices inside that make them tender.
  • Let them rest. With any grilled hamburger recipe, use a tray to put your burgers on and let them rest a moment before popping them onto the buns.

How do you make a good burger at home

What are the ingredients for hamburgers?

You need 80/20 ground beef, paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, seasoning salt, and Worcestershire sauce, along with buns and any toppings you’d like.

What is the secret to juicy hamburgers?

That 80/20 mix on the meat is one of the secrets as is not mixing the meat up too much. Don’t forget the thumbprint in the middle of the patty for even cooking.

How do you make a good burger at home?

Start by making your burger patties fresh with proper seasonings. Adding Worcestershire sauce was a game-changer for me because it gives burgers that restaurant flavor.

Do you need to add anything to ground beef for burgers?

Yes, add some dry seasonings and Worcestershire sauce. You don’t want to add more than that or you’ll change the consistency.

What do you season burgers with?

Keep it simple with seasoning salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. A small amount of Worcestershire sauce helps too without making it fall apart.

Do you need to add anything to ground beef for burgers

How do you make hamburger patties from scratch?

Simply mix up your ground beef and seasonings. Then roll the meat into balls and flatten into patties about 1/3 lb each.

What can I mix with hamburger meat?

Mix dry seasonings with a little Worcestershire sauce. If you add too many other things, your burgers will fall apart.

How do you make hamburger patties that don’t fall apart?

When making hamburger patties, don’t add too many extras. These ingredients add more moisture to the meat which keeps it from staying together.

How do you make hamburgers more flavorful?

Use the right seasonings. I use Worcestershire sauce plus paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, and seasoning salt. Also, when making a grilled burger recipe, the grill will actually add a charred flavor to the burger that makes it taste like restaurant quality.

What does adding egg to hamburger do?

Egg binds a burger together though I don’t recommend it. This makes it more like a meatloaf. You don’t need egg to make a burger stay together. Just keep things simple and don’t overmix the meat.
