  • 2 lbs 96% lean sirloin or 99% ground turkey or chicken

Meanwhile…

Fire it up

Throw the following in the slow cooker (or do this stove top on low to medium low)

  • 1 (10 oz) can diced tomatoes with green chilies, strained
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup frozen corn

Western Churkey Burger

picture forthcoming!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground “Churkey” (1/2 lb extra lean ground turkey + 1/2 lb ground chicken breast)
  • 1/4 C chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp salsa (I used homemade salsa, so it was very chunky, not so pureed)
  • 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp chopped onion

Directions

Mix all ingredients until well blended. Pan-fry, grill, or even bake these puppies. Serve them on whole wheat buns, pita thins, corn tortillas or chopped over a fresh salad.

Tip:

To create great flavors, mix several kinds of meats!  Extra lean ground pork+ground sirloin+extra lean turkey is a tasty combo as well. I use this method in many styles

I made a double batch and shaped them into either 1/2 pounder patties (man size) or 1/4 pounders.  Wrapped them individually in plastic wrap and put them all into a ziploc so I could pull them out for a quick meal depending on who I will be serving.

Easy, But Fabulous Veal Parmesan

Veal Parmesan is already a pretty easy dish, but you can make it as easy or as complicated as you want – it is VERY forgiving! So have fun with it!Veal Parmesan - Faith Keith

Ingredients

  • Canola Oil
  • 2 Veal steaks
  • 1/4-1/2 C bread crumbs (seasoned or unseasoned)
  • Rosemary
  • Roasted garlic
  • Italian seasoning
  • Sea salt (or any kind of salt)
  • Cracked pepper (or regular ground black pepper)
  • Mozzarella (shredded or slices)
  • Marinara (I love to make mine from scratch, but you can easily get a jar of yummy spaghetti sauce)
  • Parmesan cheese, for sprinkling
  • Olive oil, for drizzling

Directions

  1. Drizzle oil in skillet and heat pan to medium
  2. Coat veal steaks in bread crumbs then place in pan
  3. Cook for about 3-5 minutes on one side, season with rosemary and roasted garlic
  4. Flip steaks and cook for another 3 minutes (or until steaks are no longer pink), season with Italian seasoning and salt
  5. Sprinkle Mozzarella cheese (or lay a slice on each steak), drizzle with marinara and then turn off the heat
  6. Decorate with Parmesan cheese, cracked pepper and olive oil and serve 🙂

Keep this dinner simple by steaming broccoli or other vegetables (in the microwave, on the stove, or in the steamer), so it does all the work for you while you concentrate on your veal steaks.
