Our weekly menu had a bunch of delicious new recipes including beef bulgogi, chilaquiles, and cajun style ribs. So many good ones!
Need some dinner ideas? These are a few recipes we used this week.
We’ve been super adventurous lately, and this week’s weekly menu had lots of fun and different kinds of recipes. We had Mexican chilaquiles, cajun style ribs, and Korean beef bulgogi, plus a few other yummy recipes. Check them out below.
Here’s what I cooked for dinner this past week:
4/5 STARS – super good
I love a bowl dinner, where a bunch of yummy things are tossed into a bowl when served. It makes it easy for everyone to eat the parts they want. This beef bulgogi recipe was perfect for a weeknight meal, and we scarfed it down. The meat was so flavorful and delicious.
I didn’t buy any kimchi; here’s what I did for bowl topping options:
- white rice
- fried eggs
- cucumber ribbons
- shaved carrots
- sesame seeds
I love making ribs in the crockpot, but usually I’ll cook them in brown sugar and pineapple juice, and then add BBQ sauce when we grill them.
This recipe has a cajun kick to it, and you cook them right in the crockpot with the BBQ sauce. No grilling required. They were a tiny bit spicy (you can adjust the level based on how much of the spices you add) but everyone devoured them.
We actually used the leftover meat and made BBQ pork pizza on Friday — so good!
4/5 STARS – a classic!
Pot roast is an easy choice for Sunday dinner and your house always smells amazing all day long.
Have you tried the Pioneer Woman’s pot roast? I actually never follow a recipe for pot roast — I just sear the meat, then toss everything into the crockpot for 7-8 hours on low. But when I was looking for a good recipe to link here, I found The Pioneer Woman’s pot roast recipe and she does mashed potatoes with her roast. She said the potatoes in a crockpot roast always turn out a little mealy, and I’ve always felt that way too.
My mind is blown.
I’m totally trying that next time, and so should you.
5/5 STARS – you must try these!
I made these for Sunday night dessert last week and WHOA they were amazing. I’ve had other s’mores bars before, but these definitely take the cake. I could have eaten the entire pan by myself, they were so good.
Seriously, try this recipe.
4/5 STARS – so good!
I LOVE getting chilaquiles at Mexican restaurants, so when Philip found this recipe, we had to try it. We did the green version, but there’s a red version in the recipe as well. We’ll try that one next time.
The recipe was fantastic, the homemade chips were INCREDIBLE, and it was actually relatively easy.
I added pulled pork, and it made for an amazing, hearty dinner. The boys gobbled it up too!
