Sandy, what are pepperoncinis? I've never heard of them.
They are Italian pickled peppers, in a jar where you find olives etc. in the store. They are moderately spicy and give the sandwich a nice kick.
cool - I'll bet Jeff would like those. I'll look for them.
Tried this recipe last week and with the crock pot on all day...the aroma was making my mouth water! The shredded beef was delicious! I froze the leftovers and had some of it again yesterday! :)
Okay- I am all about keeping it simple when you are crunched for time, so here's two easy recipes that use cake mixes and both are quite yummy:
NUTTY PEACH CRISP
1 can (29 oz) sliced peaches, undrained
1 pkg spice cake mix or butter pecan cake mix
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
Heat oven to 325 degrees Pour peaches (with syrup) into ungreased 13x9x2" pan. Top with cake mix (dry). Dot with margarine; sprinkle with coconut and pecans. Bake 55-60 minutes or until top is golden brown. Let stand at least 15 minutes before serving. Serve warm or cool. 12-15 servings. Note- the butter pecan cake mix is my favorite when using this recipe!
CAN'T LEAVE ALONE BARS
1 pkg white cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup (6 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter, cubed
In a bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, and oil. With floured hands, press two-thirds of the mixture into a greased 13x9x2" pan. Set remaining cake mixture aside. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the milk, chocolate chips, and butter. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 45 seconds; stir. Microwave 45-60 seconds longer or until chips and butter are melted; stir until smooth. Pour over crust. Drop teaspoonfuls of remaining cake mixture over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.
Both sound yummy! I'll have to check the pantry for cake mixes.
The recipe was in our local paper in December. It was a first-place winnter at the Arkansas State Fair in October and it was recently named first-place winner in the Pillsbury Pie Crust Baking Championship. The recipe won to creator $6,000 in prize money.
SALTED CARAMEL-CHOCOLATE-PEANUT BUTTER PIE
1 refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
1 (14-oz) bag of caramels, unwarapped
1/4 cup milk
1-3/4 cup Spanish peanuts, divided use (Party peanuts)
1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup peanut butter, creamy
8 ounces miniature chocolate-covered peanut butter cup candies, unwrapped, chopped
1 (1.55 oz) milk chocolate bar, melted
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Bake pie crust in a 10-inch glass pie plate as directed on box for a single-crust pie. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 15 minutes.
In medium microwave-safe bowl, microwave caramels and milk uncovered - on 100% power 1 to 2 minutes or until melted, stir until smooth. Reserve 2 tablespoons melted caramel. Stir 1-1/2 cups of the peanuts into the remaining caramel mixture. Pour caramel mixture into baked pie crust.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.
In large bowl, stir condensed milk, egg and peanut butter until smooth. Stir in chopped peanut butter cups. Pour in crust over caramel mixture. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until filling is set. Cool, then refrigerate for 1 hour. Drizzle melted candy bar and reserved caramel over top of pie. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup peanuts. Sprinkle salt evenly over the pie. Serve.
Cover and refrigerate any left overs. Makes 8 servings. (I cut the pie into 12 pieces and that was plenty for for each serving. This is very rich and filling, but yummy. Tastes like a Snicker bar.)
