Philly Meat Sub

1 – 1 1/2 lb lean Roast – If am lucky enough to have antelope but a small beef roast will work
2 14 oz can Beef Broth – You need enough to cover meat
1 lrg Green Bell Pepper – sliced thin strips
1 lrg Onion – sliced
1 C Mushrooms – washed and sliced
2 T Butter
Shredded or sliced Mozzarella Cheese
Italian Bread – 8 inch section for each serving

Spice Blend:
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Salt
1 T Italian Seasoning
1/4 tsp Hot Pepper Flakes
1/2 tsp Oregano

Rub meat with 1/2 of spice blend and in a skillet heat small amount of oil to brown meat. Brown meat on medium/high until a deep brown on all sides. Remove and set aside. Deglaze skillet with a small amount of broth and add back to broth.

Heat broth with remaining spice blend, add brown meat and heat to a gentle simmer.
Simmer until meat is tender 1 – 1 1/2 hrs. Remove and slice meat into thin shaved slices and return to broth. Keep warm and keep all broth for dipping.

In butter, saute onions, green peppers and mushrooms until mushrooms reduce to half and onions are clear. Keep warm.

Split and toast Italian bread, add meat, vegetables and cheese.
A good accompaniment is a small bowl of broth for dipping.

Great served with my canned Pickled Vegetables and homemade French Fries or/and Onion Ring.

Salmon Soup

This is a chowder style soup using milk base. You can adjust this recipe to fit you taste. But use this base and then add corn, cooked diced potatoes, or a savory herb.

1 can Canned Salmon (clean and deboned)
1/4 C Celery (1 rib) – fine chop
1/4 C Onion – fine chop
1/4 C Green Bell Pepper – fine chop
1/8 C Carrot – Shredded
1/4 tsp Garlic – grated
4 C Milk
2 T cornstarch for thicken (if needed)

Saute vegetable, salt, pepper in a small amount of oil in sauce pan until onion are beginning to look clear.
Add milk and salmon, bring to gentle boil and reduce to simmer for 10 minutes. If you prefer a thicker soup, mix cornstarch with small amount of water and add to soup until desired thickness.

Salmon Patties

This on one of Dad’s favorites.

1 can canned salmon – clean from skin and bones
1/3 C fresh Celery – chopped fine
1/3 C Bell Pepper – chopped fine
1/3 C Yellow Onions – chopped fine
1/2 tsp Garlic – grated
2/3 C Saltine Crackers – crushed fine
1 Egg – beaten
1/4 tsp Hot Sauce – Sriracha
1 T Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 tsp Parsley Flakes
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp salt

Oil for frying

Mix all ingredients together (except oil) and blend throughly. If you let it set up for half an hour they retain their shape better.

Heat skillet to medium high with enough oil for frying. Make Patties and place in hot oil, fry patties until golden brown. About 10 minutes, turning when needed.
