CPT: Ever Heard of ‘Bow Tie Etiquette’? [Video]

IMG_20180823_131415_edited

There was a bit of a miscommunication today in regards to our Crock-Pot Thursday meal. While the rest of the Directive team was sitting at their desks dying to try the Barbequed Beef and Bow Tie meal they could smell cooking in the kitchen, Sean was putting on his formal attire in preparation for what he thought was a “Bow Tie Event.”

After getting over the initial embarrassment, Sean was able to laugh at the situation. At the end of the day, he is just thankful he managed not to get any of today’s lunch on his nice clothes!

You can get the recipe - and, witness this embarrassing moment - below:

 

 

BARBECUED BEEF AND BOW-TIE DINNER

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked mini bow-tie (mini farfalle) pasta (5 oz)
  • 2 1/2 cups Progresso™ beef-flavored broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup frozen corn (from 12-oz bag), thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (6 oz)

 

Directions:

  • In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • Add bell pepper; cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in pasta, broth, barbecue sauce, salt and pepper. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover; cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender.
  • Stir in corn and 1 cup of the cheese. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Cover; cook 3 to 4 minutes longer, until corn is hot and cheese is melted.
