So I’m scanning through Pinterest today and I’m always looking for new foods for dinner, designing and organizing ideas, and how to generate some traffic. I came across a site called Tailwind. It’s a site where you can schedule pins and soon instagram posts. I just started using it today and I have already seen more traffic to my site.

Here’s how it works.

It’s free to sign up, but it only gives you 100 pins. To upgrade your account it’s about $100 for the year. Not to bad, so what are you waiting for? Go sign up for free!

So I finally went out and bought a cast iron skillet. I have to say it’s the best thing I have every bought. I never thought I would ever say cookware is something I would be proud of. I made this recipe in a skillet and it made it so much better. The broccoli was soft and crunchy. My picky son loved it as well, he even went back for seconds and thirds.

Beef and Broccoli Ramen

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Oil (Divided)
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3 packets ramen noodles (seasoning packet discarded (3 ounces each))
  • 1lb flank steak or skirt steak (thinly sliced against the grain)
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 3 cups broccoli

Optional

  • sesame seeds for garnish

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cups low sodium beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon ginger (minced)
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 6 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 6 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha (depending on how spicy you would like it)

Directions

Step 1
Add steak, 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar to a medium bowl. Marinate for 1 hour or overnight in the fridge.
Step 2
Meanwhile, mix together all of the sauce ingredients in a medium bowl.
Step 3
Cook the ramen noodles according to the package instructions. Set aside.
Step 4
Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a large skillet. Add in broccoli and sauté over medium heat until tender but still crisp. Remove the broccoli from the pan and set aside.
Step 5
Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan. When pan is almost smoking add in beef. Sauté for 1-2 minutes.
Step 6
Toss in garlic and saute for 1 minute.
Step 7
Add the broccoli back to the pan along with the sauce. Stir and simmer until thickened, 1-2 minutes.
Step 8
Toss in the noodles and stir to coat.

Serve immediately with sesame seeds if desired.

Holy %#$#, I Finally Made Some Affiliate Money

As you have seen, I have finally changed the layout of my blog. I’ve had the same one since, oh, forever. Anywho, I was checking my checking account, I don’t get paid til Thursday, I needed to see how low my funds were. To my surprise, I had a deposit from ShareASale, for $55.60. All I thought was, what the heck did I refer? So I looked, it was my link I posted on my facebook page2 for $1 – Try Craftsy Unlimited 2 Weeks For Just $1.

This deal is still going on.  If you don’t want to spend any money, they also have: 7 day FREE trial on Craftsy Unlimited

You say, what’s the big deal?

What’s great, is that it didn’t cost anyone anymore. So if you’re frustrated that you’re not making any money, it will happen.
