Country Cooking With Sue Davis

Every once in awhile we all might have a “pot luck” meal, meaning we cook whatever we can find in the refrigerator or freezer! These recipes are good choices when you don’t know exactly what you want, but want “something” different.

Pepper Steak

¼ c. oil
1 ½ lbs. round steak cut in strips
1 small onion chopped
1 small green pepper chopped
1 can tomatoes – I used the chopped ones
½ c. flour
Salt and pepper to taste

Flour meat well. Saute’ onions and green peppers in an iron skillet or heavy pot. Add stead and brown, turning meat while cooking. Add tomatoes and juice and simmer on low for about 50 minutes with lid on pot. Serve with rice.

Baked Mushroom-Chicken Soup

1 chicken, 3-4 lbs., cut up
1 ½ t. Cajun seasoning – mild or zesty
1 t. salt
½ t. pepper
3 T. vegetable oil
2 cans (10.78 oz.) cream of mushroom soup
2 cans (4 ½ oz.) sliced mushrooms
1 onion, peeled and quartered

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Rub chicken pieces with Cajun seasoning, salt, pepper and brown chicken in hot oil for about 3 minutes per side. Work in batches if needed. Transfer the browned chicken to baking dish or Dutch oven. Add the mushrooms, mushroom soup and onion. Cover and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until chicken is tender. Juices should be clear. Serve with mashed potatoes.

Mexican Corn on Cob

¾ c. mayonnaise
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
½ t. lime juice
8 ears of fresh corn, husked and silked

Mix mayonnaise, 1 T. seasoning mix and lime juice in small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Brush corn lightly with oil. Sprinkle remaining seasoning mix evenly over corn. Grill over medium high heat 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Spread mayonnaise mixture over corn. Serve immediately.
