Here is a recipe I gleaned from Just A Pinch. I recommend the site for its variety of recipes, for all tastes and preferences and skill levels. This is a base recipe, meaning I say you can adjust it with seasonings and ingredients to make it your own. I will say I was impressed by the use of bay leaf for roasts. I think it belongs with pork (say Carne Adovada) as well as Jamaican Jerk and roasted chicken. You can actually do brisket the same way, with bay leaf and in your electric skillet. Just remember that if something is too tall to use the cover, make a tent with aluminum or paper bags.

But then that's my story, and I'm sticking to it. _ga-

Electric Skillet Roast Beef
Recipe added by Kathie Carr - posted on Just A Pinch.

Grandma would only use her oven if she baked several items at once, like meat, potatoes, and a pie or bread. In order to save money she used her electric skillet whenever possible. This is her electric-skillet-pot-roast. And its good.

Cook time: 3 Hr Prep time: 10 Min Serves: 4-6

Ingredients
3 Tbsp oil
2 lb round or chuck steak or chuck roast
1 large onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 bay leaf
vegetables as desired (carrots, onions, potatoes, bell pepper, beans, celery, etc.)

Directions
1. Heat electric skillet to 350 degrees and brown steak in oil. Add onion to skillet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to 250 degrees. Add water to skillet so that bottom of the skillet is covered about 1 inch deep. Add bay leaf, cover and simmer for 2 1/2 hours.
2. Add any vegetables you wish. Chunks of carrot, potatoes, celery, onion wedges, etc. Add additional water if needed. Cover and cook for 30-45 minutes until vegetables are tender. Serve with gravy made from skillet drippings.

Last Step: Don't forget to share!

You can use a regular coffee filter to strain the grounds, indeed it would be helpful if you had a yogurt strainer (to make your own yogurt cheese - think healthy cream cheese). I used to use a permanent coffee filter for a drip coffee machine.

Most of the grounds will settle during the rest period. I have used two styrofoam coffee cups to make this, merely pouring from one cup to the other and stopping when the dark brown grounds approached the edge; dump, rinse, pour until reasonably clear.

Does that help?

OK Gralan... emoticon and I lack common sense... For iced coffee, do you use instant coffee? If you have to use regular coffee, how do the grounds dissolve? I do not have a mesh.

Further instructions please! I am an iced coffee fanatic. However, the iced coffee has been like mud yet the coffee maker is new. I simply perk a regular pot of coffee, place ice cubes in a travel mug, sprinkle 3 packets of Sweet n Low and pour.

When I go to play bingo, I would love to have an easy way to have iced coffee there. They do have a water cooler to use. Any suggestions?

Gralan is back in demand! emoticon

Here is the basic El Cheapo Cold/Iced Coffee recipe (can drink at room temp as well) that I posted on the Welcome page.

Use 3Tbsp (+) reg-grind coffee per 2C Rm-temp water. Cover at let sit in fridge 12-24 hrs. Wah-lah! Use coffee ice cubes 4 best results if you want it iced and not diluted.

The results are smooth, as cold water does not leach the acids from the beans/grounds.

emoticon Now I like to use 1heaping Tbsp coffee to 6oz hot water for my own usual use, which is the normal directions for coffee since Modern Society began. For the GRAM-folks out there, that's about 15g to 6 ounces. If I'm wrong, tell me. I have yet to take my use of grams out of the oven and use it regularly elsewhere in the kitchen.

When I'm looking for stout coffee, I do 1 heaping Tbsp per 4 oz hot water.

Just saying. I normally zap the mix for hot coffee to 185F, then I pour it back and forth with another mug 4-6 times. I then use a fine-mesh strainer for the final pour into the now-preheated mug. Tada! Fresh, hot, tastes like old-fashioned boiled coffee and easier cleanup. I've even done this with styrofoam cups at work instead of drinking the watered down brown coffee-colored water they made for us.

Keep the peace. Vigilance!
