Meatloaf Cupcakes
According to this meatloaf cupcake recipe, cupcakes don't have to be sweet. And I'm totally sold. Plus, everything is much better in miniature form and this includes meatloaf. If I have enough mashed potato leftover I will use this recipe. Makes 12 servings. For the meatloaf: 1 pound ground beef 1 pound ground pork 1 small onion, grated 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 cup panko crumbs 2-3 splashes Worcestershire sauce 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley 1/4 cup milk 2 eggs, lightly beaten For the sauce: 1/2 cup chili sauce 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar 1 teaspoon dry mustard For the potato โ€œicingโ€: 3 cups boiled potatoes, chopped into chunks 1 egg yolk 1/4 cup half and half or heavy cream Pinch of salt 2 tablespoons melted butter Instructions: Preheat your oven to 350 F. Prepare the meatloaf by combining all ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix until incorporated. Donโ€™t over handle the mixture or the meatloaf may be too dense. Chill while you prepare the sauce and potatoes. Make the sauce by whisking the chili sauce, brown sugar and mustard together until smooth. Set aside. While the meat is baking, whip the boiled potatoes together with the egg yolk, half and half or cream and salt until smooth. Stir in the melted butter. Fit a pastry bag with a large star tip and fill with the potato mixture. Set aside, but do not refrigerate. To assemble the cupcakes, lightly spray a cupcake tin with nonstick cooking spray. Fill each indentation with a small handful of the meat mixture, gently pressing it down until it is completely filled. Spread a teaspoon of the sauce around the top of each cupcake, and bake for about 30 minutes, until the meat is cooked through. Remove from the oven and turn on the broiler. Pipe some potato โ€œicingโ€ on top of each cupcake. Put the cupcakes under the broiler for a few minutes until the potatoes are lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Remove from the oven and enjoy.
Perfect Pan-Seared Steak
The basics to any perfect steak dish is a good quality, high-grade cut of beef. Ingredients: 1 bone-in or boneless rib eye steak or sirloin steak at least 1 ยฝ pounds, cut to at least 1 ยฝ inches thick Pinch of salt Freshly ground black pepper 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons butter 2 peeled garlic cloves, left whole Few sprigs fresh parsley, including stems Optional: Wine and stock (chicken, beef, veal,etc.) and butter for deglazing the pan and making a delicious pan sauce Directions: 1. Salt and pepper one side of the steak. 2. Heat your seasoned cast iron skillet to smoking hot. Add oil and swirl around to coat. Add steak seasoned-side down (place it in pan away from you so you donโ€™t get splattered), and then salt and pepper the other side of the steak. At this point do not touch it for two minutes. Using tongs (never pierce the meat with a fork), flip the steak and add butter, garlic and parsley to the pan next to the steak. Allow the steak to cook for 2 more minutes. 3. Right after you flip the steak for the first time, with a spoon or small ladle, keep basting the melted butter over the steak. Baste continually for the full two minutes (tilt pan a little if you have to, to get the butter onto the spoon). 4. After two minutes on each side, keep flipping and basting the steak each time leaving the steak for 30 seconds before turning. Test the steak with the poke test (see note below) and remove at medium rare at about the five to six minute mark of total cooking time. Cook a minute or two longer for medium to well. A thicker steak (such as a sirloin) may take longer. 5. Turn off the heat and baste one more time. Leave the steak in the pan loosely covered with foil for 10 minutes and allow to rest before cutting. Baste one more time, and remove to a cutting board. Either cut the steak in half for each serving or for a nicer presentation, slice on the bias and serve slices. 6. Discard the pan drippings or if desired, deglaze the pan with a little wine, then and stock and simmer for a few minutes to reduce the drippings. Add a tablespoon or two of butter to thicken for a nice pan sauce .
You Can Drop These 4 Costly Grocery Shopping Habits
The largest spending bucket in India belongs to groceries. According to our research, Indians spent Rs. 21,491 on this category in 2017-18, or 28% of total spending. To save money on a regular basis, some may try to be disciplined by sticking to a shopping list, making fewer trips or clipping coupons. For those who are particularly budget-minded, we've laid out 4 bad habits to drop if you truly want the most value out of shopping for your everyday necessities. Don't Go Grocery Shopping When You're Hungry Hunger is one of the most basic and intense feelings people can have, and such a sensation can easily throw you off your budget at the supermarket. Even when armed with a shopping list, hungry people can be prone to buying unnecessary items just because they want food so much more in the moment. To prevent this from happening, try going grocery shopping when you're relatively full. For example, grocery shopping after dinner can be a great way to take a stroll to and digest while preparing for the week ahead. Don't Be Loyal to Brands In the early 20th century, the key to success in business was making good products because reliable, high-quality production itself was difficult. Since the 1950s, however, consumer packaged goods companies like P&G have been building their global businesses by inundating consumers with advertising. Over time, consumers came to trust these brands to represent good quality, and they were willing to pay for the convenience of simplifying their shopping process by sticking with well-known products. However, blind brand loyalty isn't the best value shopping strategy in the modern era. First, some companies may charge higher prices for features that aren't actually necessary, like adding a fifth blade to your already sufficient razors. Second, production quality of alternative options has improved, and many of the generic brands sold by supermarkets are just as good as those sold by brand names. One can save significant money by forgoing flashy branded goods across many categories. Stop Paying With Cash Finally, unless you shop for groceries at cash-only marketplaces, always use a credit card when shopping for groceries. As most businesses do, supermarkets charge the same price whether you pay with a card or cash, and there are a number of credit cards in India that provide high rewards specifically on grocery spending. How much one can earn using a credit card depends on one's spending profile, but annual rewards could easily amount to thousands of rupees every year, which is essentially free money if you use your card responsibly. Always Check Your Receipt Most people have a tendency to just stuff the receipt into their bag or pocket after paying for their groceries. Or, they don't even take the receipt from the cashier. This is a bad habit that can actually lose you money over time. First, cashiers can mistakenly scan items twice, charging people for items they are not taking home. Second, sometimes cashiers fail to credit you with a sale or promotion, causing you to miss the discounts to which you're entitled. Therefore, it's advisable to at least glance over your receipt to make sure you paid the correct amount. This article originally appeared on ValueChampionโ€™s blog
