Broccoli with Toasted Sesame Seeds

2 pounds broccoli
One quarter cup butter
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. sesame oil
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
Salt and pepper to taste

Cut broccoli florets into bite-sized pieces. Cut off the bottom inch of the stems, the peel the stems and cut into thin slices. Blanch broccoli by placing in a saucepan and covering it with water. Bring water to a boil and cook for just a couple of minutes until broccoli is crisp tender. Drain off water and add butter, soy sauce, sesame oil and garlic to the saucepan and cook for several more minutes. Add toasted sesame seeds and salt and pepper. You may toast the sesame seeds by placing them on a baking sheet and placing them in the oven on 400 degrees for several minutes until they turn golden brown.

The Skinny: Use low sodium soy sauce.

WHOLE MEAL CHICKEN SALAD

2 to 3 cups chicken breast, cooked
1 (15 oz.) can chunk pineapple, drained
1 (11 oz.) can mandarin orange sections, drained
1/2 c. sliced pitted ripe olives
1/2 c. chopped sweet green pepper

Chopped pecans, optional

Simmer (don't boil) boneless, skinless chicken breast in a little

bell pepper, and onion. Blend mayonnaise and mustard. Toss gently with
chicken. Cover and chill for several hours.

Just prior to serving, stir in chow mein noodles.

Labell's homemade beef Jerky

<DIR><DIR>3 Pounds Beef Roast, Lean, sliced 1/8" thick
2/3 Cup Worcestershire Sauce
2/3 Cup Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Salt
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
3 Tablespoons Liquid Barbecue Smoke®
1/4 Cup Dark Corn Syrup

Combine marinade ingredients. Slice beef with grain. Combine and marinate overnight in the rifrigerator. Cover bottom of oven with foil to catch drip. Stretch meat on baking racks and dry in oven at lowest setting. This will take 2 1/2 to 8 hours. Crack open the oven door on occasion to allow moisture to escape. Turn all pieces over at least once, and switch top to bottom racks as the ones on the bottom will be wetter, as the top ones have dripped onto them. Meat is done when it no longer bends and you can break off a piece with ease. Do not overdry or it will be crisp and break. Do not worry about color changes as it will get lighter as it continues to dry over time.ENJOY

I don't like just eating it by itself, but I don't mine it mixed it with other stuff, makes it nice and crunchy, yeah it is nice I make this one quite often in the summer, it beats the old fashioned potato salad having to cut them into small cubes, you could shove something else in its place like red or green pepper.
Do you like mushrooms Judy I have the best mushroom salad recipe? Would have to type it out though cos I haven't got it on my computer.
