Sloppy Joe Bake

This recipe is on Jones Farm's website as one of their beef recipes. I made it and totally forgot to take pictures. It was great and super easy!

1-1/2 pounds ground beef (80% to 85% lean)
1 large yellow onion, chopped (1-1/2 to 2 cups)
2 cans (14-1/2 to 16 ounces each) sloppy Joe sauce
3 cups uncooked rotini
1/2 cup water
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Sliced green onions (optional)

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Brown ground beef with yellow onion in large nonstick skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until beef is not pink, breaking up into 3/4-inch crumbles. Pour off drippings. Stir in sloppy Joe sauce, rotini and water.
2. Spray 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon beef mixture into dish; cover with aluminum foil. Bake in 350°F oven 35 to 40 minutes or until pasta is tender. Uncover; sprinkle with cheese. Continue baking, uncovered, 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
3. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with green onions, if desired. (Serves 6)

NY Strip

This week is beef, so when I went out to Jones Farm to get my meat, I picked up a few NY strip steaks..and let me tell you..they were GOOD. When I got them home I forgot that our grill hasn't been working so I wasn't sure how I was going to cook the steaks, but then I decided to broil them in the oven so they would get done in a decent amount of time. So, I season the steaks with some steak seasoning, and pepper, because my husband and I like spicy food so I always spice more than other people do when it is just us eating. I put the steaks into a baking stone and placed them in the oven on high broil for about 7 minutes and then flipped them over for about another 7 minutes. They were tender and just right. I would recommend these steaks to anyone!

Here is a few pictures! Enjoy!

Taco Ring

This is one of my favorite recipes ever, it is so quick and easy. I make it all the time for my husband and all his friends that are over.

1 pound of ground beef

2 packs of crescent rolls

shreded cheese

1.You start by browning the ground beef, draining and adding taco seasoning.

2. Then, take a pizza pan or stone and over lap the crescent rolls around to make a big circle. Make sure all the thick parts over lap so when the meat is up in, it doesn't fall out all over your pan.

3. Add the meat into the roll along the thick part of the circle

4. Sprinkle cheese over the meat

5. Take the top, skinny part of the roll and fold it over the meat, make what looks like a braid.

6. Place in the oven on 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until rolls are browned.

I always serve mine with salsa, but some people prefer it plain. are some pictures!
