1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter

Melt chocolate in double boiler over slightly simmering water.  Or microwave the chocolate, stirring every 30 seconds until completely melted.  Pour half of the melted chocolate into pan and smooth evenly over crust.  Place pan in refrigerator.  Keep remaining chocolate warm.

To prepare the peanut butter filling, blend peanut butter and butter together until smooth, using a food processor or electric mixer.  Slowly beat in icing sugar and then add vanilla.  Beat until smooth.  Spread peanut butter filling over the chilled chocolate layer.  Finish by pouring remaining warm chocolate over filling and spreading smooth.  Chill in refrigerator one hour or until firm.  Cut into bars and serve.

Swiss Steaks

Today's recipes come from Petit Chef

Swiss Steaks

Swiss Steak

3 - 4 1/2 lb. blade roast (from the shoulder) cut into 1 1/2 - 2 inch steaks
1 - 14 oz can of diced tomatoes
3 cloves of garlic minced
1 whole onion sliced
1 TBL vegetable oil
2 TBL tomato paste
1 TBL AP flour
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
salt and pepper

step 1
In a large dutch oven heat the oil. Cut the roast in steaks and pat dry. Salt and pepper each side. When oil is ready sear the meat only doing about 4 pieces at a time. *that way you won't stew it and will get a good sear*. Set aside 

step 2
Then add onions and saute until clear and slightly browned. Add the garlic, tomato paste and flour and continue to stir (about a minute or 2). Add the tomatoes, stir, add the chicken stock and bring to a boil. 

step 3
Remove from the heat and add the meat and any juice from the plate. Place in a 300 degree oven and cook on middle rack for about 2 hours. I cooked mine 2 hours and 15 minutes. 

step 4
When done remove the meat and place on a platter and cover and let rest 10 minutes. To the sauce add 2 TBL sun dried tomatoes chopped and a good hand full of fresh chopped parsley.
When ready to serve spoon some sauce over the meat.
