Yuengling Lager Beer Marinade

With some family over for a BBQ this weekend, I wanted to do kebobs for something different and a dish we had not had in awhile! Grandson in-law’s mom also joined us and she is not much of a meat eater so I figured on having plenty of veggies grilled along with the meat. In addition to doing the grilling, I turned the marinade recipe for the meat over to husband as I had enough to do! The end results were pretty funny as everyone loved his concoction except him and he told me to throw away what he wrote down as he would not make it again! Of course, the peppers and onions I marinated in Italian dressing and basted the squash and tomatoes as they were cooking on the grill.

What will you have? Chicken - Pork or Sausage?

I got my Comet rice cooker out to make the rice and I asked everyone if they knew what it was and Jan (Andy’s mom) had no clue nor did anyone else for that matter!  After tasting and seeing how the rice turned out, my granddaughter said she had to have one of those gadgets. I told her good luck as she would have to find one on-line as they haven’t been made in many moons! They were also surprised at how we fix the kebobs as I always skewer the meats separately from the veggies as they all take different times to cook and if there is anything I abhor is when my veggies are burnt to a crisp! Well apparently everyone liked the manner in which they were cooked because there was not a piece left when everyone left the table except a few measly pieces of pork, and I thought I had made more than enough, there I go thinking again!

Yuengling Lager Beer Marinade
  • ½ cup Yuengling beer (after husband's post on his potatoes, I'm sure you know where the rest of the bottle went!!!)
  • 1 tbls Worcestershire sauce (or as Kenny had written down, Worcestire, it's that spelling like you say it thing he has!)
  • ¼ tbls Seminole Swamp seasoning (he uses this stuff in everything including his omelets!)
  • ½ tbls garlic powder
  • 1 teas lemon juice
  • 1 teas parsley flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cut meat into desired size cubes and marinate for a minimum of five hours or over night, we used chicken breasts and boneless center cut pork chops.
  2. Skewer chicken and pork separately and grill meat until done over medium coals.
  3. We did not marinade the kielbasa, just the pork and chicken.


And then we topped it off with a homemade Key Lime Pie…………enjoy!

Pepper Steak Stuffed Meat Loaf

Can ‘ya tell I haven’t been cooking too much lately? With the new great-grandson’s arrival last week and all the extreme heat we have been having, the kitchen is the last place I feel like being in. Husband and I have even been eating mostly melon for lunch as it’s cool and refreshing with some homemade almond yeast cake or crackers. Any work outside is done in the morning and into the A/C for the duration of the day. One of my cooking buddies mentioned that her temperature yesterday tipped at 100 degrees with 100% humidity and we are feeling the same here as we live fairly close. As she said, it makes it so hard to breathe you don’t want to be out in it at all! Hoping it will break by the Fourth so we can enjoy cooking on the grill.

Our grocery store last week had my chuck roasts for BOGO again and I went ahead and did some more stocking up in the freezer, a whole 18 pounds worth as we love ground beef in any shape or form! Yesterday, I was going through my frig to see what I needed to use up and decided to throw this recipe together. We love pepper steak and we love meat loaf so why not? Husband was skeptical again but he managed to clean his plate and then I caught him nibbling on what was left, I swear, will he ever trust me after being with me for 26 years? Of course, I’m sure he thinks back to some of my kitchen disasters and have had a few suggestions for naming a new category for just such. What do you think? Should we add a category just for disasters?

So with cleaning out the frig, here’s the recipe!

All you need is a biscuit!

Pepper Steak Stuffed Meat Loaf
  • 1-1/2 lbs ground beef
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1-1/4 teas Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • ½ cup sliced sweet onion
  • ½ cup sliced bell pepper
  • ½ cup stewed tomatoes
  1. Combine the ground beef with the next 5 ingredients and mix well.
  2. Place a little more than half the mixture in a casserole dish that has been sprayed with cooking oil.
  3. Press meat to cover bottom and make a shallow well, about ¾" deep in the center.
  4. Spread the rice, onions and peppers around in the well and cover with the stewed tomatoes.
  5. Top off with remaining meat and seal edges.
  6. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1-1/2 hours or until meat is done to taste.


Forgot to mention, did have one little mishap last night. I had just taken a shower, threw on a robe that I had just washed and went in to take out the meatloaf. When I went to drain off the fat into a bowl, I tipped the grease bowl and covered the floor, counter and my nice clean robe with the grease! No burns so I guess it wasn’t that bad after all! Enjoy………..
