Thoughts On Oriental Skillet Supper Recipe:

This recipe is perfect for two people. If more is needed you can double the recipe. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired. If you like this recipe a little sweeter, add 1 teaspoon of sugar. The sugar will make this dish taste like it came from an Asian restaurant.

When I eat Asian food I like to have egg rolls and crab rangoons with it. A fortune cookie is nice but that is such an American culture food item. I still enjoy the fortune cookie.

More Information For You:

Fortune cookies are a common food item at Asian restaurants in America. It is common to receive a mint, chocolate, or fortune cookie when you eat Chinese food at a restaurant. Fortune cookies originated in Japan. Learn more interesting facts about the Fortune Cookie by reading HISTORY's article, The Surprising Origins of the Fortune Cookie.

Questions For You:

  • Have you tried this Oriental Skillet Supper Recipe or one that is similar?
  • What is your favorite Asian meal?
  • Do you enjoy fortune cookies?
  • Did you read my recipe from yesterday? It is called Orange Balls Recipe and would go well with today's Oriental Skillet.

My Thoughts For Today:

My favorite BBQ!

Excellent pulled pork!

I love barbecue! One of my favorite places to get barbecue is at a local food truck. The food they make is so good and they have good prices. The barbecue is honestly some of the best I have ever tasted. I have written about this business in the past. This food truck serves the Webster County area and the locals are happy about it. The city does not have a barbecue restaurant so KETTLE & QUE fills a demand for great tasting food.

You can Follow or Like KETTLE & QUE's Facebook page so you will never miss a notification when they are open and their location. They are actually a food trailer but I don't know the technical term for it. Any ideas?

I stopped by the food truck this weekend and bought a pulled pork sandwich. My youngest daughter drove me because she likes driving and I had to pick up some things at the Big Box store. She had a turkey sandwich and said it was the best turkey she ever had. That is a big compliment because I can cook a tasty turkey. I picked up a pulled pork sandwich for my wife too. She loved it!

When I cook barbecue I like to cook it in the Instapot and add barbecue sauce when it's dished out. The Instapot makes the process quicker for me.

Keep on cooking!

Thoughts About Strawberry Jam Cake:

You can use your favorite icing for this Strawberry Jam Cake. If you want to bake a layer cake you can bake two pans of the cake and layer strawberry jam between the layers. For added appeal simply cut fresh strawberries in half and place them on top of the iced cake. Another idea is to layer the top with strawberry jam instead of icing the cake and then place fresh-cut strawberries on top. You are only limited by your imagination.

More Information For You:

The strawberry cake was first published by The Ohio Cultivator in 1845 and then made popular by The Lady's Recipe Book in 1847. Strawberries come from Europe. Strawberries get ripe first in Spring, they are categorized as a type of rose and even come in different colors. Visit Edible to learn more interesting facts about strawberries.

A Few Questions For You:

  • What icing do you think goes best with Strawberry Jam Cake?
  • Did you know there is a National Pick Strawberries Day? - (May 20th)
  • Do you like the recipe I posted yesterday? It is called Easy Hot Fudge Recipe - Old Fashioned. Let me know what you think!

My Thoughts For Today:

I love barbecue pulled pork!

This weekend I am excited to visit a local food truck. The food truck serves the best barbecue I have tasted. I worked with a young friend whose father is the same age as me and has worked in the construction business for most of his life. He is in his middle age now and has always had the dream of owning his own food truck. He loves to cook and enjoys cooking barbecue food.

Some time back he began building his food trailer. It looks great and has a back porch with a barbecue smoker to cook the meats.

My friend told me his father had some issues getting his food trailer approved by the local health department. Apparently, the local food is very strict. Long story short, the food trailer is up to code and my friend's dad is serving the public. I am looking forward to visiting this local food trailer and enjoying a barbecue pulled pork sandwich.

Dutch Oven Barbecue Beef Recipe - And My Special Pork Steak Seasoning


It's worth the wait!

>>>See all my recipes here!<<<

*Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest so you never miss a recipe.

Dutch Oven Barbeque Beef Recipe - (Main Dishes, Beef)


1 rump roast (3-4 pounds)
1 onion (medium, sliced)
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (or to your taste)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 bottle catsup (14 ounces)
1-2 tablespoons brown sugar
Hamburger buns


Place the rump roast in the Dutch oven. Combine the remaining ingredients, except the hamburger buns, and pour it over the rump roast. Cover the Dutch oven and bake at 250 degrees for 3 1/2-4 hours or until the meat is tender. Cool the meat slightly, cut into thin slices, and serve on hamburger buns.

Thoughts On Dutch Oven Barbecue Beef:

Dutch ovens are great to bake and cook with. This recipe cooks the rump roast slowly and seals in the juices along with a great aroma because of the special barbecue sauce mix. I love barbecue beef any time of the year. You can make this recipe all year round because it is baked in the oven. If you have a grill with a good thermostat that will work great for outdoor cooking. This recipe can be served with potato salad or baked beans. In the Southern parts of the United States coleslaw is served on top of the barbecue sandwich. I first learned about coleslaw in barbecue in West Tennessee. It actually tastes great!

Interesting Information For You:

The Dutch oven comes from the Netherlands. Cast iron Dutch ovens were created by Abraham Darby. If you are an outdoors person you can use a Dutch oven over a campfire. There are so many different foods that can be cooked with a Dutch oven. Dutch ovens are even commonly used in South Africa and other countries. You can visit the Wasserstrom blog to learn the history of the Dutch oven, more about its origin, all the countries where it is used, the many uses, and even how to care for your Dutch oven. You will also learn how to shop for a Dutch oven that is perfect for you.

Some Questions For You Today:

Do you own a Dutch oven? If you don't own one, maybe you have a friend who would let you borrow theirs until you purchase one. You will need one for this recipe. Have you ever eaten food cooked in a Dutch oven? Please share your experience with me. Did you see my last recipe that was posted yesterday? If you missed it, it is called Kahlua Cake Recipe and I think you will like it. Check it out!

My Thoughts For Today:

Read on to see my secret seasoning recipe for grilled pork steak.

I love cooking out on the charcoal grill. I know propane is quicker but I love the charcoal flavor that gets into the meat. I bought pork steak and seasoned it my special way. I am glad to share what I use here. In past posts, I have mentioned how much I like Tony Cachere's Creole seasoning. That's my secret for pork steak. I begin by sprinkling black pepper on my steaks and then follow up with Tony Cachere's Creole seasoning. I rub it in the meat really well and I carefully season the whole meat. Not too much but completely seasoned. My pork steak has a spicy taste to it so if you have delicate taste buds you might want to use less. You just have to experiment.

The beans, coleslaw, macaroni salad, and potato salad were all store-bought. It is the holiday weekend Memorial Day on Monday so I am sure we will eat more food like this before going back to work.

Keep on cooking!
