SMASHED CHEESE BURGERS

This next post is more about technique than recipe. You take a pound of ground beef, sauce it up with your fave barbecue sauce, form it into balls then smash the heck out of it with a spatuala.  Got your interest yet? Oh, yeah, then you flip it, top with cheese and stack the other two burgers on top. Looking good isn’t it all steamy […]

PICKLE BRINE POTATO and GREEN BEAN SALAD with GRILLED STEAK

I’m afraid that I’m hooked on spicy extreme beans.  It used to be dill pickles but oh that spice and crunch sends me over the moon.  I buy them in large jars but recently the frugal Galley Kat in me was resenting wasting all that tasty brine. So I made me some pickle brine potato and green bean salad.  Within a few minutes pressure cooked […]

APPLESAUCE MEATLOAF

Ah, the versatility of the lowly meatloaf! So many ways to dress it up.  So many different ways to season.   It shows up quite often in my galley, providing variety, using different types of meats and oh, those leftovers.  The one pictured below gave up the basics with slices of bacon-wrapped deliciousness, followed by meatloaf sandwiches the next day and a bonus day of […]

SALISBURY STEAK (SLOW COOKER)

This was one of those ‘show stopper’ dinners.  Not at all a gourmet-ish type of meal, made with lowly ground beef and a simple gravy, yet somehow when we sat down to dine and took that first bite….wow!  The flavour of the gravy was amazing, the beef patties were surprisingly tender and that I had walked away four hours earlier to do other things made […]

PHILLY CHEESE STEAK

Although a lot of our meals are vegetarian, even vegan, we are anything but against animal protein.  And there are times when I actually crave a good feed of steak.  Today is that day. This will make an excellent boat meal once we are back on the water.  I even used one of our galley cooking pans to sauté the onions, pepper and mushrooms. Next, […]

STOVE TOP MEATLOAF (4 recipes in 1)

You might be thinking ‘oh yeah another meatloaf recipe’.  You’re right in that practically everyone has a fave meatloaf recipe.  But this post (as with all of my others) is more about versatility for folks like us who spend a whole lot of time in tiny spaces and especially for me as chief Galley Kat, cooking in wee spaces with minimal resources, next to no […]

SAILOR BEANS what you […]

GRILLED STEAK, DRUNKEN MUSHROOMS and BLUE CHEESE ROASTED POTATOES

This was one of those ‘super-suppers-at-anchor’ kind of meals.  A chilly damp day, lots of boat work and two very hungry sailors in need of a hearty dinner.  It was also  collaborative  – my fave way of cooking, sharing the work.  Captain ‘manned’ the grill (steak and potatoes) while I did some serious damage down in the galley (gettin’ the mushrooms drunk). Anyway, it was […]

STUFFED CHIABATTA

Being able to make meals a little in advance is a real plus in my little galley.  When it comes times to eat most of the prep mess has been cleaned up and I can kind of pretend that someone else has prepared it for me…kind of.  I live a lot in my imaginary world. These yummy stuffed breads are such a meal. Prep, wrap […]
