With warmer weather and steaks extremely cheap at Target this week, it’s time to hit the grill once again. In fact, my family enjoyed this main dish last night. It’s absolutely delicious. My picky eater even asked for seconds. Enjoy!

Beside each ingredient, you’ll find where you can find the item on sale this week! Meijer sales are from the 03/08-03/14 advertisement, so may not go on sale in your area until Thursday, if your store runs sales from Thursday to Wednesday. Remember to check your pantry, since you may have many of these ingredients already on hand.

2 small steaks (Target, Kroger, Marsh, Meijer)
1/4 c beer (Kroger, Marsh, Meijer)
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tbsp seasoned salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Heat grill to high. Slightly oil grill. Using a fork, poke holes on the surface of the stake and place is a dish to marinade. Mix beer, Worcestershire sauce, & brown sugar, then pour over steaks. Marinade 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Set aside in marinade for 10 minutes. Turn steaks over, and sprinkle other side, then let sit for 10 more minutes.

Remove steaks from marinade and place on grill. While the steaks cook for approximately 7-1o minutes per side, boil marinade on the stove. During the last few minutes, baste with marinade.

Monday's Money Saving Meal: Barbeque Ribs

by Beth Montgomery on March 1, 2009

in Frugal Cooking

With the weather is warming up, my family and I broke out our grill this week, since we absolutely love cooking outside. Did you know, despite popular believes, you don’t need a smoker to make amazing barbeque ribs! Just take a few tips from me and don’t put the ribs on direct heat. Get the fire going on one side and place the ribs on the other. Keep the temperature low and cook them slowly. Use patience!
For this week’s Money Saving Meal, you can either simply just add barbeque sauce to your ribs to spice them up or try the recipe below. After each ingredient, I listed where you can find it on sale!
5 lbs ribs (Marsh, Kroger, Meijer)
24 ounces beer (Marsh, Kroger, Meijer)
spicy barbeque sauce or your favorite barbeque sauce
Trim any excess fat from ribs. Place ribs in a large cooking pot on the stove. Add beer to cover ribs, turn heat on high, and bring to a boiling. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered for about 2 hours or until fork-tender.
Set grill to medium heat. Place ribs on grill. Use 1/2 the barbeque sauce for basting. Brush on upon setting on the grill. Grill, covered, turning often, and brushing with remaining basting sauce, for 15 minutes or until slightly crispy on the outside.
Heat reserved barbeque sauce for dipping. Serve with ribs.
If you simply, use barbeque sauce, you can skip the boiling and simply place the ribs on the grill and cook slowly over low heat until cooked through!

Orange Chicken with Rice Recipe

by Beth Montgomery on February 22, 2009

in Frugal Cooking, Main Dish Recipes, Recipes

This week’s recipe is really cheap to make, because most of the ingredients will be already stocked in your pantry and spice rack. In addition, it’s a healthy Chinese meal your kids will love and can even help make! Sale prices below for Meijer are from the Thursday, February 19 – Wednesday, February 25th advertisement and deals. The deals below don’t include coupons, so click the link to save even more!

Orange Sauce:
1/4 c orange juice (or pineapple orange for a different taste!) (2/$5 @ Meijer, concentrate 10/$10, $2/6 @ Marsh, 4/$5 @ Kroger)
6 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp corn starch
3 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce

2 lb chicken breasts (boned, skinned, & cut into bite size pieces) ($1/lb @ Meijer, B1G1 @ Marsh, $2.99/lb @ Kroger)
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
2 c flour
vegetable or olive oil (olive oil $7.99 @ Marsh)

First prepare the orange sauce by mixing water and corn starch in a small bowl and set aside. Combine remaining sauce ingredients in a sauce pan and heat over medium-high heat until it reaches a gentle boil. Add the water/corn starch mixture slowly while stirring. Boil until desired consistency and remove from heat.

Mix the dry chicken ingredients together in a separate bowl, then place the eggs (whipped) in another bowl. Dip the chicken in the egg. Roll chicken in the flour mixture and deep fry in oil until cooked thoroughly. Remove and set on aside to drain and dry.

Serve with sauce on top and rice on the side or put the chicken and sauce on top of the rice! Cook rice in chicken broth, instead of of water, for extra flavor! Or use a Knorr Pasta Rice Side 10/$10 this week at Meijer.

Make it Healthier &/or an All-In-One Meal
You may also customize this recipe by adding broccoli (10/$10 @ Meijer, $0.98 @ Marsh, 3/$5 @ Kroger), snow peas, mushrooms (10/$10 @ Meijer, $1.99 @ Marsh), carrots (10/$10 @ Meijer, $1.88 @ Marsh), onions (1.29/lb @ Marsh, $0.69/lb @ Kroger), or your other favorite vegetables! Add oranges for decoration ($0.49 @ Marsh, $3.99 3lb bag @ Kroger). Instead of frying the chicken, just cook it in a skillet or grill it to make it healthier and less fattening. Adding in your veggies makes this a perfect meal!

Monday's Money Saving Meal: Stuffed Avocado Salad

by Beth Montgomery on February 15, 2009

in Frugal Cooking

This weeks recipe is not only quick and easy, it’s healthy! To help cut your grocery budget, I highly recommend going vegetarian now and then. Meat is one of the most expensive items on our grocery lists and it is something American consume in excess, so I try to have 1 or more meat free meals a week. It’s healthier and cheaper! Meijer prices below are listed from the 02/12/09-02/18/09 advertisement.
3 large avocados (4/$5 @ Marsh
4 tomatoes or grape tomato equivalent (grape tomatoes 2/$5 @ Marsh, tomatoes $1.28/lb @ Kroger & $1.29/lb @ Meijer)
1 small onion or small bunch green onions (diced) (green onions 2/$1 @ Kroger, onions 0.88 @ Meijer)
1 cup mayonnaise
salt & pepper to taste
parsley or cilantro (chopped for garnish)
Mix tomatoes, onions, mayonnaise, salt, & pepper in a bowl. Mix & refrigerate until serving. Just before serving, slice avocados lengthwise and remove pit. Fill the avocado pit area with the tomato garnish mix.
Serve on a bed of lettuce or surrounded by fruit for a healthy meat-free meal or serve as a side dish! Fruit & lettuce are all on sale this week. Mix and match based on the deals.
P.S. The picture above is not of Stuffed Avocado Salad.
