Favorite Recipes

Since my head isn't clear enough to do a normal post (due to my continued clogged-up cranium) I thought I would post some favorite recipes instead. I am always looking for good deals on meat for my family of 5, which sometimes means purchasing those not-so-tender round steak cuts. But with this recipe, it's both tender and delicious!

YUMMY SLOW COOKER ROUND STEAK
3 large potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 onion, chopped
6 carrots, peeled and sliced into 1 inch pieces
2 pounds boneless round steak
1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
3/4 cup water

Place the potatoes, onion, and carrots in slow cooker. Cut steak into six pieces, then place the meat on top of vegetables. In a mixing bowl, combine the soup mix, soup, and water; pour over beef.
Cover, and cook on Low for approx. 7-8 hours.

BUTTERMILK BISCUITS
1/2 cup of butter
2 1/2 Tbsp of Sugar
1 beaten egg
3/4 cup of buttermilk
1/4 cup club soda
1 tsp salt
5 cups Bisquick biscuit mix

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine all the ingredients. Knead the dough by hand until smooth.

After flouring hands, pat the dough flat to 3/4 inch thickness on wax paper, and punch out biscuits with a biscuit cutter. Bake on a greased baking pan for 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Makes 18.

This recipe originated from "Top Secret Recipes" and is a copy-cat of KFC's biscuits. Fast food restaurants have very little appeal for me (I think it's all the grease) but I have to admit that I love their biscuits!

I will end by wishing everyone a speedy recovery from all the sickness going around. Just think- only 19 more days until the first day of Spring!

KFC uses Bisquick? Im shocked. I can always detect the prepackaged taste of Bisquick in stuff but Ive never tasted it in theirs. Now Im going to have to try this recipe.

Mrs.D, I said it was a copy-cat recipe. Which means this author made a recipe that he thought tastes the closest to theirs, and with ingredients he thought his readers would use. I doubt KFC uses Biscuit. Lol I use my own homemade biscuit mix- it tastes better and is cheaper!
