Karen’s Latest Book Release – At Love’s Command

Karen Witemeyer's Cowboy Dip

Haunted by the horrors of war, ex-cavalry officer Matthew Hanger leads a band of mercenaries known as Hanger’s Horsemen who have become legends in 1890s Texas. They defend the innocent and obtain justice for the oppressed. But when a rustler’s bullet leaves one of them at death’s door, they’re the ones in need of saving.

Dr. Josephine Burkett is used to men taking one look at her skirts and discounting her medical skills. What she’s not used to is having a man change his mind in a heartbeat and offer to assist her in surgery. Matthew Hanger’s dedication to his friend during recovery earns Josephine’s respect, and when she hears of her brother’s abduction, he becomes her only hope for rescue.

Matt has stared down ruthless outlaws, betrayal, and injury, but when a bossy lady doctor crawls under his skin, his heart is tempted to surrender. And when she is caught in the crossfire, he may have to sacrifice everything–even his team–to save her. Buy the book HERE.

Hamburger Cabbage Skillet

Hamburger Cabbage Skillet

Hamburger Cabbage Skillet is an easy, one-pot dish to serve your family on a busy weeknight or when you just don’t feel like doing much in the kitchen.

My family loves German and Irish food, and they love cabbage. Sweet cabbage. Stuffed cabbage. Cabbage in rolls. Cabbage sauted with Kielbasa. You name it. We’ve tried it.

I almost always have cabbage in my refrigerator. So I’m always looking for ways to use it. This is one of those throw together meals that my family ended up really liking.

 

Ingredients Needed to Make Hamburger Cabbage Skillet

  • lean ground beef (80/20)
  • medium yellow onion
  • garlic clove
  • large head of cabbage
  • medium carrots
  • canned diced tomatoes
  • water
  • red wine vinegar
  • dried basil
  • parsley
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

 

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Gather all your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table. Prepare your ingredients. With a Chef’s knife on a large cutting board, coarsely chop the yellow onion. Mince the clove of garlic. Place in a prep bowl.

Chop the cabbage and peel and slice the carrots. Place in a bowl and set aside.

In a large skillet, brown ground beef on medium-low heat. I like to use a lean burger at least 80/20. Add in chopped onion and minced garlic. Stir and cook until tender.

Add chopped cabbage, canned diced tomatoes, and sliced carrots. Pour in water and stir to combine. Cover and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Season with red wine vinegar, dried basil and parsley. Sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Lower heat and simmer for another 10-15 minutes.

Cheeseburger Soup

Cheeseburger Soup

Cheeseburger Soup is the perfect answer for a cool spring or summer night. My cousin Brenda made this soup for me, and it was so yummy I had to start serving it to my family. It’s simple to make and delicious. A Few Tips Grate 

Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s Pie is a dish I often make when I want something quick and easy for supper.

When it gets to be spring or summer, I never know for sure what time my husband will come in for supper, as he will often work until dark. This is a perfect dish that will hold on the stove for an unknown time. And perfect for my Meat-and-Potatoes guy.

It cooks in under 30 minutes and prep time is next to nothing. Especially when I have leftover mashed potatoes sitting in the fridge! Which is really the only time I make this dish.

 

Ingredients Needed to Make Shepherd’s Pie

  • ground beef (80/20)
  • yellow onion, diced
  • mushroom cream soup
  • water
  • frozen mixed vegetables
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Leftover Mashed Potatoes
  • Cheddar Cheese, shredded

 

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Gather all your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table. Prepare your ingredients. Using a Chef’s knife and cutting board, dice yellow onion. With a box grater, coarsely shred the cheddar cheese.

I always recommend buying chunk cheese rather than the pre-shredded type that is available in the stores. Yes, it takes a bit more time to shred, but it tastes and melts so much better.

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef. I like to use lean ground beef, at least 80/20.

Add in the diced onion and cook until tender.

Stir in creamed soup, water, and frozen mixed vegetables.

For this recipe, I’ve used whatever creamed soup I happen to have in the cupboard. Cream of mushroom is my preferred choice, but I’ve also used cream of chicken or cream of celery. 

Bring the mixture to a boil and cook for 6-8 minutes. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to your taste.

While the hamburger mixture cooks, warm the leftover mashed potatoes in the microwave.

I always warm the mashed potatoes in the microwave so they are nice and soft before spooning them onto the meat. 

Cover mixture with warm mashed potatoes. Sprinkle top with shredded cheddar cheese. Allow to cook another 10 minutes. May place a lid over the pan while this cooks to help melt the cheese.

Let all of these ingredients cook in your skillet until they are bubbly and well seasoned. Allow to cool a bit before serving or you’ll end up burning your tongue!

Serve with a slice of bread and butter. This recipe will serve 4-6 people.
