Cole Slaw

Today I am giving you two recipes.  I made my beef potpie, which was delicious.  I also made a Cole slaw that claims is the same recipe as Kentucky Fried Chicken‘s.  I haven’t eaten there in many years so I don’t know how close it is, but, it did taste very good! Here’s the recipe:

2 tbsp onion, finely minced
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tbsp white vinegar
2 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
Notes / Directions
Directions for making Copycat Kentucky Fried Chicken Cole Slaw:Step 1: Wash cabbage and carrots.
Step 2: Finely dice cabbage and carrots in a large bow, I use one with a lid
Step 3: Stir in minced onions.

Step 5: Pour over Slaw and mix thoroughly.
Step 6: Cover bowl and refrigerate several hours or overnight before serving.

Beef Potpie

Good evening,
This day has flown by!  It has been very busy with schooling, a meeting, voting, ballet class, cooking and cleaning!  With the time change it feels much later too!  It’s dark at 5:30!

Today I took my leftover roast beef, broth  and carrots, cut up and boiled red potatoes and grabbed a bag of frozen mixed vegetables to make a delicious potpie.My kids gobble this up! Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
3/4 cup flour
4-5 cups beef broth, leftover juice from roast
1 cup potatoes, cooked and diced
1 cup carrots, cooked and sliced
2 cups roast, cooked leftover, chopped
1/4 cup green beans, canned, drained ( I use a bag of frozen mixed vegetables)
1/4 cup corn, frozen
2 cups flour, crust ingredient
1 tsp salt, crust ingredient
6 tbsp ice-cold water
2/3 cup butter, cold, sliced into pieces-crust ingredient
1 egg, crust ingredient
1 tbsp white or cider vinegar, crust recipe
Notes / Directions
Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add flour and cook, stirring frequently, for several minutes until flour just starts to brown.Add beef broth, stirring constantly. While continuing to stir, bring to a boil and cook for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. (I find it helpful to remove pan from heat to do the stirring, then return it to the heat to cook and thicken it.)Stir in cooked meat and vegetables. The filling might look a little pale at this point. Stir in browning sauce to achieve a more appetizing color. Set filling aside until crust is made.Line a 9×13 glass baking dish with crust. Add filling, then top with crust. Seal edges and cut vents. Bake at 350°F for about 40 minutes or until crust has browned as desired. Remove from oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes before cutting.

Crust:

2 cups flour (I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1-1/2 cups all-purpose)
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup cold butter, sliced into pieces
6 tablespoons ice cold water
1 egg
1 tablespoon white or cider vinegar

Combine flour and salt, then cut butter into flour until mixture resembles small crumbs (I use a food processor for this).

In a small bowl, beat egg with water and vinegar.

Add egg mixture to flour mixture, stirring until a soft dough forms. Roll dough on well-floured surface.

Enjoy!

Ps.  Sorry about the picture.  It’s not good quality!

  I LOVE Chinese food and have found THE PERFECT recipes!!  The Sweet and Sour Chicken is so good I think I will need to make a double or triple batch next time so I have plenty of leftovers!  It truly tastes like something you would get at a Chinese restaurant!  The Fried Rice is so easy to make and tastes so much like what you would get in a restaurant also!  The picture isn’t the best quality, sorry about that!  This meal is one of my very favorites!  Try it out and enjoy!!

2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup sugar, sweet sour sauce

Dip chicken into the cornstarch to coat then dip into the eggs. Heat your 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet and cook your chicken until browned but not cooked through. Place the chicken in a 9×13 greased baking dish. Mix all of your sweet and sour sauce ingredients in a bowl with a whisk and then pour evenly over the chicken.
