Default 30 minute or less meals.

Post 'em.

One of my favs because you can cook it without thawing the beef if you forget:

Easy Beef Stroganoff

Ingredients:
Egg Noodles (enough for four servings)
1 lb ground beef
12 oz sour cream
2-3 Tbsp. catsup
Large can of sliced mushrooms
1 large onion
Salt & pepper to taste

Start some water for egg noodes, then chop an onion. Brown ground beef w/ onion. (When water boils, add egg noodles and cook concurrently with beef mixture). When beef is cooked, add sour cream catsup and mushrooms. Stir until heated through. Serve over noodles.

I usually have a salad or fruit on the side with it. Sometimes I mix baby green peas with the stroganoff.

That's not even close to a fucking stroganoff. Ground beef? No paprika? What the fuck are you doing?

Chicken and things Cous-Cous

Two handfuls of dried cous-cous
Stock cube dissolved in boiling water, roughly equal volume to that of the cous-cous plus a bit more
An onion, diced
Two red peppers
Mushrooms. Lots.
Two chicken breasts
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
Tablespoon of tomato puree
Teaspoon of paprika, dried basil and oregano
Salt and black pepper to taste

First, add the stock to the cous-cous and cover. Fry the chicken breasts until just cooked and slice into small slivers. Then put the garlic and onion in the pan and fry for 10 mins on medium heat until golden, then turn the heat up and add everything else. After about 5 minutes of stirring, add the chicken breasts, mix once more and serve. If it's a bit dry, just add more hot water - it's absorbed by the cous-cous rapidly.

Yeah that's what I thought. I don't see a lot of point in trying to pare down a complicated, slow recipe into something quick and simple. It's like people who think that bolognese is a quick, simple, cheap and easy meal. It's none of those things. If you don't have the time or inclination to make stroganoff or bolognese or cassoulet, just don't. There are a million quick recipes that'll taste nicer without being a weird pastiche of something else.

Anyway:

I like to make sesame noodles with hoi sin chicken (works with any meat really).

1. Get your chicken pieces (thighs/drumsticks work best), season it, cover in a mix of hoi sin sauce and vegetable oil. Stick a few sliced garlic cloves in it too. Roast in a hot oven.
2. about 20 minutes later, get a wok or saucepan, turn the heat wayyyyy up, throw in a couple of diced bell peppers, bean shoots, carrots - the usual stir-fry vegetables.
3. Cook some noodles in chicken stock or water.
4. Drain noodles, add a spoonful of peanut butter, some soy sauce and some sesame oil, stir around until it's evenly covered. Put it in a bowl.
5. Put the vegetables on top, then your chicken on top of that (it should be cooked through by now). Top with some shredded cucumber.

I don't know what else to compare it to. Creamy ground beef w/ mushrooms over noodles. I don't care what you call it - it's good, easy, fast and nutritious, especially when you add the peas or vegetable side. I use fat free sour cream and 97% lean beef when i make it.

Well call it creamy mushrooms and beef over noodles then. Not that I'm being a food snob or anything...
