    Wild Rice Stuffed Turkey Breast

    Ingredients

    • 1 6 ounce box long grain and wild rice
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1/3 cup diced onion
    • 2 cloves garlic minced
    • ½ cup pine nuts
    • ¼ teaspoon ground sage
    • ½ teaspoon ground thyme
    • 1 3 pound boneless turkey breast roast
    • Salt and pepper to taste

    Instructions

  • Cook long grain and wild rice according to package directions.
  • While the rice is cooking, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until tender.
  • Add the minced garlic and pine nuts. Cook until the garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds to one minute.
  • Add the cooked rice to the pan with the onions. Stir in the sage and thyme. Set aside and allow the rice to cool.
  • Lay the turkey breast out on a cutting board. Starting from the thick end, slice through the turkey breast lengthwise, but do not cut all the way through. Lay the turkey breast out flat. Cover with waxed paper. Flatten the turkey breast with a meat mallet until it is about ½ inch thick. Season the inside of the turkey breast with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon the rice down the center of the turkey breast. Be sure to keep a 1-inch margin at the top an bottom to prevent the stuffing from oozing out the bottom when it’s rolled up.
  • Cut a few lengths of cooking twine long enough to tie around the rolled and stuffed turkey breast. Fold one of the long sides of turkey breast over the rice. Fold the other side over the first.
  • Slide the kitchen twine pieces under the turkey breast. Place them about 1-inch apart. Tie the ends securely to hold the turkey breast together. Tuck any loose ends under the twine.
  • Brush the outside of the turkey breast with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Roast the turkey breast until a meat thermometer inserted in the meat near the center reads 165 degrees. Allow the turkey breast to rest for 15 minutes before cutting. Cut the stuffed turkey breast into medallions and serve

    Country Style Ribs with Parmesan Grits

    Ingredients
    For the ribs:

    • 3 pounds bone-in country-style pork ribs
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil divided
    • 1 onion chopped
    • 2 carrots chopped
    • 2 stalks celery chopped
    • 4 cloves garlic minced
    • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
    • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    • 1 cup dark beer
    • 1/2 cup chicken stock
    • 2 bay leaves

    For the grits:

    • 1 cup chicken stock
    • 2 cups water
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 cup corn grits
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Instructions
    For the ribs:

  • Pour two tablespoons of cooking oil into the bottom of your Instant Pot. Press SAUTE and press ADJUST to increase the heat to MORE. When the Instant Pot is ready, it will say HOT.
  • Season the country style pork ribs on all sides with salt and pepper. Working in batches, brown the pork ribs on all sides, then remove to a plate and add more ribs to the pot until all the ribs have been browned. If you are in a hurry you can skip to step . Place all the ribs on a plate and set aside.
  • Turn the SAUTE function off by pressing the KEEP WARM/CANCEL button. Add onions, carrots, celery and garlic to the bottom of the pan. Season with salt and ground black pepper. Nestle the pork ribs into the vegetables.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together tomato paste, vinegar, beer and chicken broth. Pour this over the ribs. Add two bay leaves to the pot.
  • For the grits:

  • Take your sling and wrap it under your trivet. Place the trivet in the Instant Pot over the ribs. Now place your oven safe bowl on top of the trivet.
  • Measure 1 cup of corn grits into the oven safe bowl. Add one cup of chicken stock, two cups of water, two tablespoons of unsalted butter. Season with salt and pepper. Give everything a stir, fold the ends of the sling down, then close the lid to your Instant Pot.
  • Press the MEAT/STEW function on your Instant Pot. If you need to, press the ADJUST botton to MORE. Once the pot comes to pressure, it should take about 40 minutes to cook. Once the time is up, release the pressure (be careful of hot steam – I like to wear an oven mitt to do this just to be safe).
  • Lift the grits and the trivet out of the pot using the sling. Stir in one cup of warm heavy cream or milk and one cup of shredded Parmesan cheese to the grits. The grits will start to become become nice and creamy. Season with more salt and pepper if needed.
  • To serve, ladle grits into the bottom of a bowl or a plate. Place the ribs on the grits and spoon the vegetables and juices over top.

    Bacon, Chicken and Mushroom Skillet

    Ingredients

    • 2 large chicken breasts
    • 6 slices uncooked bacon
    • 8 ounces white button mushrooms sliced
    • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
    • ¼ cup diced green onions

    Instructions

  • Chop the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Season them generously with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat a large ovenproof skillet on the stove over medium heat. Chop the bacon into medium-sized pieces. Once the skillet is heated, add the bacon and stir.
  • Sauté the bacon until it's cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the bacon from the skillet using a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Reserve the remaining bacon grease in the pan.
  • Add a little additional cooking oil to the pan if you don't have enough bacon grease left over to coat the bottom of the skillet. Add the chicken pieces to the skillet in batches and brown on all sides, about 1-2 minutes per side. Remove the browned chicken pieces from the pan and set aside.
  • Add more oil to the skillet if needed. Toss in the diced mushrooms. Once they start to release their juice, sprinkle them with salt and pepper.
  • Add the chicken back to the skillet and continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat, stir in the reserved bacon. Sprinkle everything with shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Place the skillet in the oven for about 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted. Garnish with diced green onions before serving.
