DJ’s Kitchen: An AMAZING Southern Utah Original Recipe!
Tonight, I was having a craving for a meal that I grew up on. A meal my mom grew up on, and a meal her mom grew up on. It should probably have a sexier name, but we call it Macaroni & Tomato Juice.
When I was a kid and we would have this for dinner, it always felt like a "Broke Family Meal." But now I'm an adult, and it's a total delicacy! I love this meal!
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- Tomato Juice - NOT SAUCE - Juice.
- Shredded Cheese
- 1 lb. Ground Beef
- Diced Onion
- Salt, Pepper, Seasoning
Get that ground beef on the frying pan. When it's about halfway done, throw on some diced onions (As many as you'd like). Simultaneously, get water boiling for your macaroni! If you're a real star, you can get your beef done at the same time your macaroni is done.
Next, strain your macaroni and put it back into the pan. Add your ground beef with onion.
Now, add your tomato juice. You should be adding a lot. It should be soupy kind of.
Get your burner back on, and throw in some cheese. I add a lot of sharp cheddar!
Once it's boiling and warm again, I stir that all together and put it in a bowl to enjoy! I like eating it with a spoon, so I get the juice too!
Now, once it's all cooled off, or put in the fridge, when you reheat it, you'll have to add more tomato juice or it won't be runny anymore. ENJOY!
