  3. 2 Tablespoons oil
  4. 1 can of cream of celery soup
  5. 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  6. 1 cup dry red wine ( I like cabernet or merlot)
  7. 3 to 4 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  1. In a large stockpot or skillet over medium/high heat, heat the oil and add the beef. Cook until meat is browned on all sides. Drain any remaining oil in the pan. Stir in both cans of soup, the red wine and the entire bag of Drunken Onion Dip Mix, bring this mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until the beef is tender. Stir in the sliced mushrooms and cook up to 30 minutes longer. I like to serve this over egg noodles or rice.

To Dallas Market….

Posted by on 9:22 am in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Hi there fans and friends of The Resident Chef Page! Well today is the big day…I am headed off to Dallas market for the BIG market of the year. We are excited and a little nervous, as we are in our new home in the gourmet market now. Things will be a little different for us this time. 

We have always been in the Cash & Carry section at Market Hall for quite a few years, we loved it there and met some amazing folks, but as with all things in life, it was time to move on. 

So we will officially be tasting and writing orders over in the Gourmet Market across the street – we are all the way in the back, booth E-02 – Be sure to look for us, we will be sampling lots of our goods (Red Velvet Cheeseball, Cheesy Enchilada Dip to name just a couple – hungry yet?) and will probably be doing some Lemon Raspberry Tea with Vodka as the drink of the day, and probably a Fuzzy Navel with vodka thrown in there too! You know us – have to keep it fun a lively! AND – just to let you know – we are in the BEST part of the building – there is plenty of room for everyone and all the neighbors are just plain ‘ol FUN!! Come get your samples of TRC dips, cheese balls and soups, some great salsa samples from REDS Salsa right next door, your savory cracker fix and of course that terrific toffee from Two Girls Toffery. Lots of goodies to be had!! 


FYI – Market special will apply from The Resident Chef – Existing customers restock with a Starter Pack or Custom Starter Pack and get FREE freight and free samples. New customers you want to get in on the TRC Starter pack and get the best gourmet line around. 

Hope to see you all out and about! This time I will have my little sister, Michelle, working with me – she is excited but this will be her first time – so hope you get a chance to come and meet her. CJ will be the weekend relief and then all me on Monday and Tuesday! Remember, if you cannot get into market or can’t make it there – we would love to here from you! – don’t forget our Facebook Page as well! 


Sherri – The Resident Chef

Here is a current picture of what the booth looks like in case you need it for reference when you get there! Also, a couple of FUN pics from the last market in June 2013. Here are a couple of pics of our Red Velvet Cheesecake and Cheesy Enchilada Hot Dip – come get your samples of these new items!

Pop back into oven and cook about 10-15 more minutes, until hot and bubbly.

Serve with baguette slices, or a nice cracker. You can also make this in a mini hot pot, place all ingredients in pot and cook.
