Shallow Pocket Tips:
Hey Coupon Claim readers-we would love to hear from you! Do you have any Shallow Pocket Tips of your own? Perhaps you have a favorite of the ones that have been shared by Coupon Claim. Let us know—w e would love to hear from you!
Quick tips for fall:
Take advantage of the more comfortable temperatures. Turn off the AC and open the windows. You will lower your energy bill and air out your home at the same time.
Watch for summer clearance sales-you can often get shorts, t-shirts and more for next year at ridiculously low prices at the end of season sales.
Spend some time inspecting the door frames, windows, etc. in your home and take the time to caulk, tapes, etc. around them so that your home is not losing warm/cool air which can result in higher energy cost.
Recipes for the Month:
Also, don’t forget that most wonderful item in your kitchen—the slow cooker. Not only does it allow you to prepare great tasting meals while you are at work or play, but it uses less energy than your stove or oven, which helps save money, too! Each recipe can be made for less than $2 per serving—what a great way to make the most of your grocery budget.
Chipotle Shredded Beef
1 7-oz. can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1 15-oz. can crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 2-lb. beef chuck pot roast, fat trimmed
Salt and pepper
Corn tortillas, shredded lettuce and Jack cheese, sliced avocado and sour cream, all optional
In a blender or food processor, puree chipotle chiles with adobo sauce until smooth. Spoon 2 1/2 Tbsp. into slow cooker; reserve remainder for other uses. Add tomatoes, lime juice, onion and garlic; stir to combine. Season beef with salt and pepper and add to slow cooker.
Cover and cook on high until beef is tender enough to shred easily with a fork, about 6 hours. Using two forks, shred meat; spoon into a serving bowl with sauce. Serve beef with warmed corn tortillas, shredded lettuce and cheese, sliced avocado and sour cream, if desired.
Chinese Short Ribs
4 pounds short ribs, cut into 3-inch pieces
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (1/2-inch) piece ginger, peeled and chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 (14.5 oz.) can low-sodium beef broth
Season ribs with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add half of ribs. Cook, turning often, until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a slow cooker. Repeat with remaining ribs.
Add onion, ginger and garlic to skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until onion is slightly softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in flour and cook for 2 minutes. (Mixture will be very dry.) Add soy sauce and broth. Increase heat to high and bring to a simmer, stirring to pick up browned bits. Pour over ribs and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 6 hours.
Transfer ribs to a platter and cover to keep warm. Strain cooking liquid into a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until liquid has thickened slightly, 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle sauce over ribs. Serve hot with vegetables and steamed white rice, if desired.
