Crock Pot Beans and Beef Stew of sorts

Published by under Musings

I love my little crock pot.  It has a 1-quart capacity and only one temperature. Lately I’ve been experimenting with various bean mixtures to get one I like. What I’ve found that it’s real hard to mess up beans in a crock pot. What I like to do is setup the mix below the night before, then I put it in the heating element when I leave for work in the morning. Since this crock pot only has one heat setting, I have it plugged into a lamp timer to turn on at 1:30 so it will have a good five hours to cook before I get home in the evening.

Crock Pot Bean Medley

1/4 cup Pinto Beans
1/4 cup Red Beans
1/4 cup Lentils
1/4 cup Black Beans
1 beef bullion cube
1 bay leaf
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups cold water

Wash the beans well in cold water. Drain. Add all ingredients to the crock pot along with 2 1/2 cups cold water. Cover and refrigerate over night. Cook for five hours or to desired tenderness.

Another easy recipe that I’ve managed to throw together a couple of times with great success is this beef stew. Again, it’s pretty darn hard to mess it up.

Crock Pot Beef Stew

1/2 lb cubed stew meat
1 medium carrot
1 medium potato
1 medium onion (white or yellow)
1 beef bullion cube
1 cup cold water
salt and pepper to taste

Wash and cube the vegitables into 1/2″ pieces. Add all ingrediants to the crock pot and give a little stir. Add 1 cup cold water.  Cover and cook in crock pot for five hours or until potatoes are tender.

Leaked! McDonald’s Big Mac Special Sauce

Published by under Musings

Okay – this has probably been around the net for a long time now, but I haven’t seen it. While browsing over at mental_floss about the birthday of the Big Mac, a reader posted this recipe:

McDonalds Big Mac Special Sauce

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons french dressing
4 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
1 tablespoon finely minced white onion
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt

Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl. Stir well.

Place sauce in a covered container and refrigerate for several hours, or overnight, so that the flavors blend. Stir the sauce a couple of times as it chills.

Makes about 3/4 cup.

Tip: Try substituting dehydrated onions rehydrated in warm water in place of the fresh onions.

Sounds a lot like Thousand Island dressing to me – which is what I always thought it was.

Helmet Talking Is Getting Me Into Trouble

Published by under Musings

I don’t know about other motorcycle riders – mainly because I don’t know any other motorcycle riders – but I’m a helmet talker. That is, I talk to myself inside my helmet. Out loud.
