Recipes

Breakfast Burritos-This is a simple recipe, scramble 6 eggs, cook up 4 tortillas, shred some cheese and add whatever else you would like(cilantro, salsa, sour cream, potatoes, and whatever else you’d like)

Stifatha-My Grandpa’s Recipe

  • 2 lbs Stew Meat, cut into 1 1/2″ cubes
  • 2 lbs small onions, quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce or 2 oz tomato paste
  • 2 T red wine vinegar or 1/2 cup red wine
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon pickling spice wrapped in cheesecloth with 1 teaspoon orange rind
  • 2 cups beef broth

Heat oil to almost shimmering and brown beef on all sides, add garlic and onions and make sure you coat everything well with oil. Add tomato paste, vinegar, salt, spice sachet, and beef broth. Cover and simmer for 2 1/2 hours. Serve over mashed potatoes.

Pot Stickers-adapted from Teens Cook

  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced
  • 1 T cilantro, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 pkg wonton wrappers
  • 2 T coconut oil

Mix first 6 ingredients(set aside 2T green onions for sauce) together with your hands until they’re well combined. Wash hands and dip your finger in water and wet the entire edge of a wonton wrapper. Place a small spoonful of the mixture in the center of the wrapper and fold the wrapper in half to enclose the mixture. Finish with the rest of the wrappers. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Carefully cook a few pot stickers at a time, for about 2 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon and place on baking sheet. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.

Note; This is a doubled recipe and after boiling the pot stickers you can set half aside and freeze once they’re cool.

Sauce

  • 2 T green onions
  • 2 T tamari
  • 1 T rice vinegar
  • 1 T sesame oil

Mix well and double if needed.
