It’s time for our Winter Edition of Freaky Friday! If you haven’t been here for this before, that’s when a bunch of us bloggers – usually 20 or so get together. We are each assigned a blog and get to choose a recipe to make. It’s all a big secret and it’s a lot of fun because we get to pick whatever we want to share!
In the past I made an Authentic Posole Recipe (unbelievable delicious) and a tasty Southwest Chicken Salad Bowl – so good! It’s a fun opportunity to try new thing and get to know our colleagues better. Why is this important to you? Because this blog has links to the BEST of the BEST recipes from all of my friends! (Scroll down to the bottom for the links.)
This time I was assigned Lisa’s Dinnertime Dish! Lisa has a tasty blog with beautiful photography and she serves up delicious comfort food recipes from my old stomping grounds, Minnesota! Right now her blog is full of delicious soups and casseroles, one pot meals and pasta dishes and choosing just one recipe to share? Well that was a real challenge!
Lisa has so many delicious recipes on her blog. I was really drawn to her recipe for Wild Rice Soup (which is AMAZING!) because you know, Minnesota…wild rice…that’s pretty much where it comes from. Then there’s her recipe for Three Cheese Italian Sausage Pasta Bake because when I think of Minnesota I also think about the “hot dish” which is a real thing there. I ultimately decided upon a Instant Pot Beef Tips with Red Wine because…
Well just look at this, need I say more? Lisa’s Beef Tips with Gravy Recipe is hands-down delicious! The stew meat simmers in the Instant Pot (or slow cooker, both recipes are provided below!) until it is tender and succulent. Stirring in a roux at the end thickens the sauce to make it savory and a bit of sour cream makes it super creamy.
Meals that are simple and uncomplicated have big appeal in my book and that’s another reason this tipped the scales for me.
