Absolutely the best Sweet Potato Casserole I have ever had, I swear! And if that’s not enough of a selling point, I’m talking about Butter, Sugar, Cinnamon, Marshmallows and an awesome Walnut Crisp Crunch on top.
I’ve mixed the ideas of several different recipes to develop this dish. I love the traditional way my Grandmother always made it; sliced with toasted marshmallows over the top. But, I also love the Southern style with a Walnut Apple pie style crisp or with Pecans if you prefer. Either way is delicious!
Sugar Butter Sauce
1 stick Butter, melted
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Nutmeg, ground
1 tsp Cinnamon, ground
3/4 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Vanilla
1 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup Flour
1/4 Cup Melted Unsalted Butter
1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1 Cup Chopped Pecans
2 cups Marshmallows, small
Bake Sliced Sweet Potatoes in the Melted Sugar Butter Sauce, covered, for 1 hour at 350 degrees f. Mix The topping ingredients, minus the Marshmallows, in a bowl and add it with the Marshmallows to the top of the cooked Sweet Potatoes. Cook uncovered for 30 more minutes at 350 degrees f.
In my opinion, Barbacoa is especially delicious and this recipe is no exception. I’ve studied and sampled various recipes over the years and I believe what I’m offering you today is, as always, geared towards the best of the best. It’s meaty with a medium to a hot kick you can control, with plenty of seasoning and spice. And this particular dish will turn your entire home into what smells like an authentic professional restaurant.
You’re going to find that the bulk of this recipe is cooked with a 4 lbs Beef Chuck just to keep it simple. But you can take this a step further by adding Oxtails, Cheek Meat or pork spare and baby back ribs to up the gaminess; which I highly recommend but it’s not required. You’ll still turn out some amazing Barbacoa following this easy recipe. You’re also going to need my Homemade Enchilada Sauce to complete this recipe but I’ve added the ingredients to the list below as well as the link to the originally post if you need it.
When I think of Beef Stew, I’m reminded of those Crappy Sunday afternoon dinners my family would have after several hours of church. The only problem was that any stew that my Mom made didn’t make the day any better because it was always runny, watered down and flavorless. So when I set out to make Beef Stew for my own family, now, I follow one simple rule; just make it better than Mom did(which isn’t hard to do BTW)!
All I do is cook a thick hearty soup with fresh chopped vegetables from my garden and I add a well seasoned steak. Then I add a few seasonings. That’s it and that’s all. Now I do cheat a little when I don’t have time to make my own Chicken and Brown gravy. But after you try this recipe you’ll quickly understand why I do it. Packaged gravy is cheap, it saves time preparing it and my Beef Stew is phenomenal!
