Cooking for one

Updated on November 20, 2007

Cooking for one

Easy and can wait

Well I am learning how to cook for one now and it isn't as much fun....but there are ways to make it interesting.. and simple..at least I have found a few ways on my own...:O)

I am a meat eater so if you aren't this may not be to your liking....

Any kind of meat..I use organic ground beef. chicken thighs (skinless ,boneless) or breasts or chops...whatever suits your taste.

I brown the meat at a semi high heat to sear in the flavor and season with several seasonings..for example....Mexican taco spices..Old bay...Mrs. dashes, garlic, any season's you enjoy.

While the meat is browning...I cut up onions, celery,carrots,bell peppers, mushrooms,asparagus tips...whatever you have handy.. then turn over the meat...Add all the vegies and turn down the heat to a simmer..

The pan is usually hot so I let the vegies saute' for a minute or two..then i will add chicken broth (organic), water, anything liquid to help steam it for about 30 minutes or until done to your liking. With a lid on it ...of course.

I can then get back to my computer, or cleaning the house, or watching T.V. or doing laundry, while my food cooks.

P.S. you can add rice, noodles, spuds, corn, beans, anything you feel like.

Right before I am ready to consume my meal I take off the lid and let it condense a bit..add some organic butter to make it shine and add flavor and either have a salad or a piece of french bread..depending if I added a starch to this???

Try it you'll love it..just don't go off an forget it..it does burn..:O)
