They're really good. But I really love potatoes and will eat them nearly any way you can cook them Smiley
44  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Manly Meal- filet mignon, potatoes and corn (with potato recipe) on: July 06, 2015 11:46:17 AM
First, I'd like to say that my boyfriend is the one who named it a "manly meal" because "steak and potatoes is as manly as you can get". Roll Eyes
Second, the recipe is adapted from something I used to help my maternal grandmother make when I was a kid. She called it "stewed potatoes" but I'm not sure if that's an accurate description. Huh The recipe can be easily adjusted if you're cooking for more, or less, people.
Also, I don't measure so I'm not sure how accurate the 1/4c water is.


Stewed potatoes for two
You'll need:
Medium-sized skillet
3 potatoes of your favored variety (I used three Russets because it's what we had; it's really delicious with red potatoes)
Butter (I used 1/4 stick; you could also use olive oil instead)
1/4 cup water
Salt & pepper, to taste
Optional:
Garlic powder or fresh minced garlic, to taste*
Onion powder or fresh minced onion, to taste*
*Preferably the fresh but if the powder is all you have, use it!

Wash, peel and cube your potatoes or just wash and cube them, if you prefer to leave the skin.
Melt the butter in your skillet over medium-high heat. After the butter is completely melted, toss in your potatoes and saute them for about five minutes. Add the water then cover, allowing them to cook for five minutes then season to taste and stir. Cover and allow them to cook for another ten minutes. You should now have melt in your mouth delicious potatoes with a creamy "gravy" of sorts. Enjoy!
Note: you could also use this as a start for making homemade mashed potatoes, as my grandmother sometimes did.

Project Name: Manly meal (my bf's idea)
Originally, I was going to submit a doll dress that I'm working on as my Nerd Pride because I consider sewing to be one of my best skills. However, my boyfriend would argue that cooking is my best crafting skill overall  Roll Eyes I've been in the kitchen in some capacity ever since I was about two years old so he's right that it's my best skill because I've been cooking longer than I've been doing any other craft Smiley So I prepared filet mignon and stewed potatoes and cheated a little by heating a can of corn. (Forgive the mini mess: I took the pic at my computer desk, which currently has a bit of crafting clutter on it.)

I forgot about this craftalong, too. I still don't really make things for myself Tongue
I do have some fabric and a pattern that I bought to make myself some summer shirts though so I guess I should work on those.
