Whisk this together for your salads: Mix 1/2 cup white wine vinegar, 1 clove garlic and one fresh onion chopped in small bowl; let sit 30 minutes. Mix in 1 Tbls. Dijon mustard. Whisk in 1/2 cup vegetable oil and 1/2 cup olive oil. Add salt, pepper; makes about 1 1/2 cups.
1 large jar hamburger dill slices
3 cups sugar
1 cup vinegar
1 oz. Pickling spices tied in a thin white cloth
Mix sugar and vinegar, add pickling spices. Bring to a boil, let cool. Drain liquid from jar of dill slices. Remove the bag of pickling spices and pour the cool vinegar mixture over the slices in their original jar. Keep in refrigerator, will keep for a year. Easy and good. This is using the very large jar.
This is a new recipe for me, it's good. Hope you will try it. This recipe needs to be baked at 350 D for 10-12 minutes.

Spoon off fat and save. Add vegetable to pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 35-45 minutes until vegetables are tender.

Or all this can be put in oven at 350 D. Baking meat for 1-1/2 hours, then add vegetables and bake another hour until veggies are done. Remove meat and veggies and mix flour and water; stir into drippings until thickened.
I prefer the oven.
