Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy
My hubby and I just made this, only changing two things... 1) added mushrooms after "steaks" were done browning, and sauteed for a few minutes more til tender, and 2) added a splash of orange juice instead of sherry (none in house). Towards the end, I needed to add more flour... I use a gravy flour for things like this, so maybe it wasn't thickening as much as normal flour, but I must have added about 3-4 tablespoon total, which got it to the right consistency but made it a little floury-tasting. And, this makes 4 regular-sized "steaks", not 8; which was just enough for hubby and I.. he had three, I had one. We had to cook them ALOT longer than 4 minutes on each side.. we flipped and cooked them the same amount of time about 4 times. The gravy is missing something. I am thinking about trying the "Bordelaise Sauce with Mushrooms" that is on this site next time, and see if it fits what I am wanting:)

Rempel Family Meatloaf
Okay, I have been meaning to write a reviews to this for AGES..... I have been making this recipe for as long as I have been on AR, and it is so far the BEST recipe... I don't even make my mother's recipe anymore. LOL! Two things I wanted to say: 1) The ONLY change I make, is BBQ sauce instead of steak sauce (we never have steak sauce in the house, but tons of BBQ sauce). Sometimes I use Kansas City-style BBQ sauce, sometimes I use Korean style.... depends on the mood of the day. Try different BBQ sauces with your mood. 2) (And the main reason I wrote this tonight).... this meatloaf is STILL good, moist and juicy, even when overcooked.... *laughs*. My husband and I are gamers, and tend to forget things sometimes. I forgot to put on the timer, and we forgot about the meatloaf. It was in 20 minutes too long, and was STILL delicious:) THIS is the ONLY meatloaf we make now:)

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have
These were absolutely phenomenal. We had some ground beef that we bought on special and I wanted to make freezer meals. Your recipe came out just perfect... I made about 12 small ones for taste-testing and bagged the rest for later use. They were just perfect, even without any sauce:) I DID sneak in a little cheese, but only because we loveeee cheese in our meatballs here:)
