Best idea I have heard in a long time
Tonight, I made us a Jiggs Dinner. It consisted of Corned Beef, Potatoes, Carrots and Onions. (We were out running the roads and I forgot about the cabbage…) I’m sure it’s pretty self-explanatory but I’m going to share how we make it.
- Corned Beef Brisket (Whatever size is enough for your family, we get between a 2 1/5 to 3 pound brisket for 2 of us.)
- 1 bag of baby carrots
- 1 small bag of small potatoes.
- 5 small onions
- 1 head of cabbage (one large enough for the whole family)
First off, we cook our Corned Beef in our Crock Pot. This has been made simple by the invention of Crock Pot liners. Hardly ANY clean up afterwards makes a happy cook! Ok, so after placing the liner into the Crock Pot, I take the small potatoes (We normally by the red skinned potatoes) and cut them in half. I place them in the bottom of the crock pot and pepper them. Then I place the corned beef brisket on top of the potatoes being sure to pour any juices inside of the package with the corned beef on top. We always open up that seasoning packet that comes with it and sprinkling it just onto the corned beef. This is when we add the water. We pour in enough water to reach the top of the brisket but not go over it. We are trying to keep those seasonings from washing off the meat. We then place the carrots around the corned beef and any extras on top. The onions I peeled and sliced in in half from top to bottom. I separated out the layers and completely covered the brisket with them. Then, place the lid on top and cook it on low for 10 hours. Set it and go! Towards the end of the 10 hours I get out a big pot and bring some water to a boil (enough to boil the size cabbage you get). Once the water is boiling, put in the cabbage and let it boil for 20 to 30 minutes, once again depending on the size head of cabbage. Once everything is done, we separate all the veggies into their own bowls and let the corned beef set for a minute or two. Then we carve it up, cut up the cabbage and eat away!
If you haven’t had corned beef this way, it is definitely worth a shot! Enjoy!
Tonight I made Mini Pizza’s in my cupcake trays! I took parts of the recipe off of tablespoon.com and the recipe was made by CheekyKitchen. Their title of the recipe is “Deep Dish Tin Mini Muffin Pizzas.”
For this recipe I didn’t make anything myself, I went with a pretty simple dinner!
- 1 can of Pillsbury Pizza Crust
- 1 jar Pizza Sauce (any brand)
- 1 package of sliced pepperoni
- 1 bag of shredded Mozzerella cheese
- Also, you can add any ingredients you would normally eat on your pizza!
Preheat over to 500 degrees. Meanwhile, spray the cupcake tin lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Open the Pizza Crust can and lay out the pizza crust. Cut the crust into 10 to 12 even squares. Take one square and place it into each of the 10 to 12 tins. I then laid a full slice of pepperoni onto the crust, then layered on the pizza sauce. After that I poured some mozzerella cheese onto each and then topped it with some cut up pieces of pepperoni. (For any of your other toppings, I would suggest putting them inbetween the crust and sauce or the sauce and cheese!) I baked these for 18 minutes, but definitely check and make sure they are done! I hope you guys enjoy them as much as I did! =)
Tonight, I will be making some mini pizzas in my cupcake pan. I will supply a link to the page I found the recipe on! I’m already thinking about them and it’s only 9:30 in the morning!
