Pig in a Blanket… My Mom’s Version
Have you ever heard of Pig in a Blanket? While growing up, this dish topped my list of favorite foods. I love the combination of the flavors all wrapped and cooked together. My mom called them Pigs in a Blanket. I know many of you are thinking that’s different than most recipes for Pigs in a Blanket… they call for hot dogs and crescent rolls. So… anyway this is my mom’s version of Pig in a blanket. I am pressure cooking mine but they can easily be cooked in a slow cooker.
2 pounds round steak
several slices of bacon
a large onion or 2
Get out your raw food cutting board and a nice sharp knife.
Cut your round steak into 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 pieces. Trim off the fat.
I used thick cut bacon and red onions this time. It doesn’t matter what type bacon you use. I had the red onions on hand so that’s what I used…any type onion will do.
I put the rack at the bottom of the pressure cooker to keep the food from resting on the bottom.
Cut your onion into chunks.
Lay one piece of round steak on the cutting board. Wrap a half piece of bacon around a chunk of onion.
Lay it on the piece of beef.
Roll up one side and stick in a toothpick to hold it in place.
Roll up the other side and put in another toothpick to secure it all together.
Place them all in the bottom of the pressure cooker.
Put the lid on tightly and cook on 10 pounds of pressure for 25 minutes once the rocker starts rocking.
CAUTION: When using a pressure cooker…ALWAYS use the instruction book from your particular model. Follow directions on the amount of pressure to use and timing of your cooking as advised by your instruction book.
If using a slow cooker…cook on low for 7 – 8 hours.
Make sure the pressure has subsided before you remove the lid.
There will be a nice juice at the bottom to put over the Pigs in a Blanket.
They are really super easy to make and so delicious. Enjoy!
