Beef and Broccoli, Crock Pot

I love to look on pinterest and find new recipes. Especially recipes that are one pot or crock pot meals. Its makes my families evenings so much smoother and more fun to be together when I don't have to be in the kitchen all afternoon. This is one of our favorite crock pot meals. Its better than take out and much cheaper! The meat melts in your mouth, its perfectly seasoned and the broccoli has just a little bite to it. Its a meal that's in our rotation for good!

2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
4 cups Broccoli Florets

1. Put the beef roast in your crock pot. In a small bowl, combine the beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, and garlic. Stir to combine then pour over the beef and cook on low for about 6 hours.

2. In a small bowl, stir cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of sauce from the crock pot until smooth. Then pour it in the crock pot. Stir until combined.

3. Add the broccoli to the crock pot and stir. Cover and let cook for an additional 30 minutes on high. If the sauce doesn't thicken bring to a boil on the stove and stir until its thickened. Serve over rice.

Baked Chicken Chimichangas

A while ago I went to a Mexican restaurant and had a chicken chimichanga. Every time I pass that restaurant I think about it. The tortilla was crispy. The chicken inside was flavorful and moist. Now I can't go in every time I crave one cause I would be there everyday, so I had to make them myself.
 
This recipe is all of the things that my chimichanga from the restaurant was but better because of the rich, creamy sauce over the top. I put lettuce on top because its good with an extra crunch and some cheese cause you can't ever have too much cheese. I may never go back to the restaurant for those chimichangas again!

2. Cook your tortillas. Place a 1/3 cup of the chicken mixture in the center of your tortilla. Fold opposite sides of your tortilla in and then roll up and place with the seam down on your prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes or until crispy.
 
Sauce
In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, melt the butter and whisk in the flour. Add in the chicken broth and the green chilies. Whisk until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream and salt. Return to heat and stir until warmed through.

Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls

I have a small obsession with cinnamon rolls, especially these ones. They are light, and soft, and they melt in your mouth. The frosting is creamy, sweet, and a little tangy. These are amazing! I'm not sure how close to actual Cinnabons these are but they are to die for. This is a recipe you need in your recipe box!!

 
Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls
Recipe Source: CulinaryCoutureBlog.com

Dough
3/4 cup Warm Water, 115 degrees
2 1/4 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cup Buttermilk, room temp
1 Egg
1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
4-5 cups All-Purpose Flour

Filling
1 1/4 cups Brown Sugar
2 1/2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1/2 cup Butter, room temp

Frosting
2oz Cream Cheese, room temp
1/4 cup Butter, room temp
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon Fresh Lemon Juice
1 1/4 cups Powdered Sugar

1. In the bowl of a stand mixer using the dough hook, add in the water, yeast, and 1 tablespoon of the granulated sugar. Mix and let sit for 10 minutes. In a separate small bowl mix the buttermilk, egg, and oil so its well combined. Pour the buttermilk mixture, the rest of the granulated sugar and salt. Stir to combine.

2. Add in 2 cups of the flour and stir on low until combined. Continue to add the flour until the dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl and they look clean. Increase to medium speed and knead for 5 minutes. The dough should be sticky but not sick to your fingers when you touch it.

3. Put the dough in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let it sit somewhere warm for about an hour or two until it doubles.

4. Prepare the filling... In a medium bowl mix the brown sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch. Grease a 9x13 glass dish and then line with parchment paper and grease again.

5. Once the dough has doubled, flour your work surface. Turn the dough onto the counter and punch out the air. Place on the floured surface. Roll the dough into a large rectangle, about 15x22. Spread the over the dough and leave a 1" strip on the edge farthest from you without butter. Sprinkle the  cinnamon mixture over the butter and using your rolling pin roll over the cinnamon to press it into the butter.

6. Starting with the edge closest to you gently roll the dough up tightly sealing with the edge you didn't put butter on. Cut off the uneven ends and mark the dough every inch and a half. Then slice your dough.

7. Place the rolls in the prepared pan. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm place and let rise for an hour or 2 until doubled again and touching each other. Bake at 350 for 15-17 minutes, until lightly brown. Be careful to not overbake.

8. While baking make the frosting. In  the bowl of your mixer beat together the butter and cream cheese. Add in the vanilla extract and lemon juice. Beat until combined. Add in powdered sugar and mix on low until incorporated then increase the speed to high and beat for 5 minutes.

9. When you take the rolls out of the oven spread the frosting on top. Serve warm!
