Warm Broth Instead of Ramen

I love Cup of Noodles mostly for it’s broth. The noodles are kind of plain, but it’s so convenient. Plus, the broth really makes me feel warm and cozy on a cold day. If you look at the labels though, you start to worry about what you’re actually doing to yourself. So I wondered, could I mix my own together in a convenient amount of time? without all the junk I don’t want. Turns out, it wasn’t difficult at all.

Amy’s Nearly-Instant Broth

I suggest you use low sodium options if you’re lowering your salt intake.

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups of water and 6 t. beef or chicken bullion (or 6 cups of Canned broth)
  • 1/4 t. Black Pepper
  • 1 T. Garlic – minced (I buy it by the jar) (or 1/2 T. garlic powder)
  • 1/4 t. Basil
  • Sprinkle of Cayenne (optional)
  • Sprinkle of Red Pepper Flakes (optional) I like mine spicy!
  • 1/4 t. Garlic Salt (optional)
  • 1/2 bag of frozen bell peppers and onions
  • Various frozen vegetables you have on hand – I used broccoli, spinach, and green beans (I try to keep a variety of vegetables on hand for cooking convenience)
  • Drizzle of Sesame Oil (optional – I enjoy the aroma)

Directions:

Dump in a saucepan and bring to a soft boil for about 5 min., pour, and enjoy. Save remaining.

 

 

Philly Cheesesteak Salad

Cheese steak sandwiches, the ultimate comfort food. Growing up, my mother fried up Steak-Umms and served on a french roll or sourdough. While the rest of my family eats their sandwiches, I create a salad with the same comfort flavors.

Amy’s Cheese Steak Salad

Salad:

  • 2-3 Steak-Umms fried and seasoned with salt
  • Salad Greens of your choice
  • Grated cheese (I use cheddar, but you can use any)
  • Tad of Butter
  • 1 Green bell pepper – Julienned
  • 1 Red bell pepper – Julienned
  • 1 small onion – Juilienned
  • Tamed Jalapeno Slices

Dressing:

  • Mayonaise
  • Mustard (Yellow, Spicy, or Dijon)
  • Paprika

Directions:

Make the dressing ahead of time. Adjust the amount to taste.

Fry Steak-Umms. Saute the peppers and onion slices in butter and drippings from the steak. (Salt to taste) Place salad greens of your choice on a plate. Slice steak into bite size pieces, add to salad with a portion of the peppers and onions. Place a few slices of jalapenos on top and top with grated cheese. Drizzle dressing over the salad and mix.

Next time, I’m going to try to create this bell pepper stuffed cheese steak instead of salad. I’ll let you know how it goes.

“This keto recipe for philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers turned out AWESOME. And if you don’t eat the shell (I love the flavor, but I don’t eat the whole pepper) they are ONE CARB EACH.
