Beef and broccoli (recipe below)
This recipe is my version of the Beef and Broccoli recipe
on the can of Cambell's Condensed Tomato soup
1 pound boneless beef sirloin steak or
beef top round steak, cut into thin strips
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
3 large cloves of fresh garlic, grated fine
1/2 teaspoon or more crushed red pepper
One 14oz package of frozen broccoli florets,
or 3 cups fresh broccoli
1 medium sweet onion
1 can (8oz) sliced or chopped water chestnuts,
drained and dried slightly with a paper towel
1 cup white rice, or 2 bags of quick cook/instant rice
Oil and butter for frying
Slice onion thin and caramelize in oil and butter.
(To caramelize onions, slice onion into thin slices, add to 1 1/2 tbs of olive oil and
1 tbs of butter, stir to coat onion slices. Cover and cook over medium-low
heat for 15 minutes. Remove cover, add approx 1/2 to 1 tsp of salt
(I use sea salt) and raise heat to medium high. Allow to caramelize
for 40-45 minutes,
stirring only once halfway through cooking.
The time it will take to reach the perfect level of caramelization will depend on
your equipment. I usually achive perfect caramelization in 45-50 minutes.)
While onions are caramelizing, cook broccoli according to package, drain,
and set aside. (After the florets cool I like to cut them into very small pieces.)
Remove onions from pan after caramelizing and set aside. Do not wash or rinse the pan.
Using the same pan used for the onions, brown the meat in oil,
leaving it very pink inside so it will not over cook later.
Stir in the soup, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, water chestnuts, onion,
red pepper, and heat to a boil. Simmer for 8-10 minutes.
If using quick-cook rice, start it at this time.
Stir in the broccoli and cook on low for 5 more minutes.
Serve pipping hot over rice.
Topped with garlic mashed
potatoes and gravy.
1lb ground sirloin, 1 egg, 1 cup evaporated milk, 1/2
cup water, finely chopped celery, grated onion,
homemade croutons, salt, fresh parsley
, fresh mint, Locatelli cheese, red pepper flakes.
Line cupcake pan with cupcake liners
and press raw meatloaf mixture into the cup.
Avoid over-filling. Bake at 375F until done.

were much better, but I didn't take photos.
