Set Instant Pot to saute. When it says HOT, add oil.
Add ground beef, onions and garlic to pot. Cook until meat is browned, stirring to break up meat. Season with salt, pepper, thyme and Worcestershire sauce as it is cooking.
Add tomato paste, water and beef base. Stir to scrape up any bits stuck to the bottom of the pot. Add elbows. Press cancel to stop Saute.
Lock lid in place and seal valve. Cook on high pressure for 4 minutes. (Cook time may vary with the kind of pasta you choose to use). Quick release the pressure. Stir in half of the cheese. Serve remaining cheese on the side.
This is just slightly sweet if you use the 1/2 cup of sugar called for the recipe, which is the way we like it. If you like it sweeter, use 2/3 of a cup. Our grandson said it tasted like candy that way!
You don’t want to overcook it, or it won’t be as creamy when it is chilled. I find that 30 minutes of simmering is just right. If serving it warm, you might want to let it sit for a few minutes to thicken up first.
These actually have more the consistency of muffins, but they are wonderful, regardless! I make them for me and our grandsons with raisins, but substitute chocolate chips for the raisins for my husband.
If you are using a baking stone, place that in the oven. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Cut in butter. You can make up a large batch and store it at this point, in the freezer or refrigerator.
Add sour cream, milk and raisins or chocolate chips, stirring just until combined.
If you are not using a baking stone, line the cookie sheet with parchment paper. Scoop out onto baking sheet (I use a 2 oz. scoop). Bake for 12 minutes. Cool slightly, then drizzle with glaze.
This will make 11-12 mini muffins. Just use a 1 oz. scoop and bake in the mini muffin maker for 5 minutes.
The biscuit ingredients before adding the milk, sour cream, and raisins or chocolate chips measures 1 3/4 cups and weighs about 236 grams, so if you want to, you can mix up a big batch of the flour mixture, store in the refrigerator or freezer, then measure out just what you need and continue with the recipe.
This is the recipe my daughter-in-law gave me. She says that she tweaks the ingredients, such as salt, pepper and garlic. Also, she prefers more parmesan, but our son (her husband) prefers it this way, so it is a personal preference.
Put about 2 cups of water into a medium sized saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until potatoes are tender. Drain potatoes.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add flour and stir until smooth. Add onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, milk and heavy cream, and continue stirring until thickened to desired consistency and smooth. Add to peas and cream sauce to potatoes. Stir together and serve.
You will need a lot of counter space for making these noodles, so make sure to clear the counters. Also make sure you use a lot of flour as you are working. We lay out rows of wax paper and flour that to lay the dough onto between settings.
Place eggs, water, flour and salt in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and flat beater. Turn Kitchen Aid stand mixer to Speed 2 and mix 30 seconds.
To test for perfect consistency: Pinch a small amount of dough together after mixing with the flat beater. If the dough stays together without sticking to your fingers, it should work well. It may be necessary to add a small amount of water or flour to reach correct dough consistency.
Exchange flat beater for dough hook. Turn to Speed 2 and knead for 2 minutes.
Remove dough from bowl and hand knead for 1-2 minutes. Wrap in plastic wrap and let it rest for 20 minutes.
Divide dough into 4 pieces before processing with Pasta Sheet Roller attachment.
Cut dough into pieces about 3/8" thick. Flatten each piece slightly. Set adjustment knob on Pasta Sheet Roller at 1. Turn mixer to speed 2 or 4. Feed flattened piece of dough into rollers to knead.
Fold in half and roll again. Repeat folding and kneading process several times, until dough is smooth and pliable and covers the width of the roller.
Lightly dust pasta with flour while rolling and cutting to aid in drying and separation. Knead and fold each piece of dough in the same manner.
Move adjustment knob to setting 2. Feed dough through rollers to further flatten. Do not fold dough on setting 2 or higher.
Change to setting 3 and feed dough through rollers again. Continue to increase roller setting until desired dough thickness is reached. Egg noodles are best at setting 4.
