Gifting Meals

I mentioned in a few other posts that in recent years my family has been given many delicious, homemade meals from our family and friends. My mother-in-law makes a delicious pepper steak that she made for us after each of my kids were born.

A few weeks ago I was thinking about her pepper steak, and decided that I wanted to make it with a twist. She uses thinly sliced steak, but I wanted to use ground beef, and add a bit of a flavor kick.

If you’re looking for meals to make for others, here are a few of my favorites:

Instant Pot Butternut Squash Soup
Sausage and Beef Lasagna
Chicken Pot Pie with Cheddar Crust
Chicken and Roasted Vegetable Enchilada Casserole

Tender Ground Beef

For tender ground beef, I mix it with cornstarch and water, and let it sit for about 20 minutes. This prevents the meat from becoming too dry.

Tomatoes

Not all pepper steak recipes have tomatoes, but I like them added in! For this recipe I use a can of fire roasted tomatoes to give just a bit of extra flavor.

Egg Noodles

This recipe is delicious over rice or most pasta. My mother-in-law serves hers over egg noodles, and that’s my favorite!

Egg noodles can fall apart easily, so be sure that you do not boil them for longer than the package recommends, and that you do not stir them too much while they’re cooking. Either of these mistakes can cause the noodles to break up.

This Ground Beef Pepper Steak is a quick and easy dinner, making it perfect for a weeknight meal. It reheats well, so if you don’t finish it all at once the leftovers are great to eat the next day for either lunch or dinner!
