1. The Braised Short Ribs: Time varies, but some can take over 14 hours.
The braised short ribs are intense. There are over 14 ingredients, and the preparation time takes hours upon hours.
As an alternative, buy a premade beef patty and grill it up with your own bacon and other fixings: 12 minutes.
It’s what you add on top that will make a plain burger be an “insane” burger!
2. Red Lamb Curry: 18-24 hours
Some curries require long hours of cooking to bring out the flavors of spices.
As an alternative, try Campbell’s Go™ Coconut Curry With Chicken And Shiitake Mushrooms: 3.5 minutes
Campbell’s Go™ is so close to take-out coconut curry…
It could file a restraining order.
3. Amish Friendship Bread: 10 Days
Friendship bread is particularly time consuming because of the communal aspect of making the bread. For 10 days, the ingredients are passed around to create the dough.
As an alternative, try finding breads at a local farmer’s market instead of baking it yourself: Probably less than 10 days
4. Shoyu Ramen: 2 Days
There are over 16 ingredients in a good bowl of shoyu ramen, and the broth making process can take hours.
As an alternative, upgrade your 35 cent ramen with soy sauce, sriracha, scallions, and an egg: 3 minutes
5. Mama’s Pasta Sauce: 24 Hours
Not only does this recipe take 24 hours, you need to stir the sauce every 15 – 30 minutes to prevent burning on the bottom of the pot. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
As an alternative, buy pre-made sauce at the grocery store and spice it up with your own veggies and spices, like basil and garlic.
Pro Tip: Avoid sauces with too much sugar.
6. Curried Lentil-Tomato Soup: 8 Hours
You have to cook it in an electric slow cooker. And they definitely don’t call it a SLOW cooker for nothing.
As an alternative, try Campbell’s Go™ Golden Lentil with Madras Curry: 3.5 minutes
7. Slow-cooked Handmade Tamales: 8 Hours
Another slow cooked recipe that ain’t nobody got time for.
As an alternative, try this tamale cheese dinner: 15 minutes.
8. Slow Cooker Buffalo Ranch Chicken Sliders: 8 hours
8 hours for some tiny sliders? No thank you.
As an alternative, buy a rotisserie chicken to speed up the process. Add your own buffalo sauce and ranch, and boom! You’re ready to go in less than a 1/2 hour.
9. Moroccan Vegetable Stew: 9 Hours
There are 17 in ingredients in this recipe, and you only have so little time…
As an alternative, try Campbell’s Go™ Moroccan Style Chicken with Chickpeas: 3.5 minutes
10. Slow-cooked Short Ribs: 48 Hours
This recipe of short ribs is very complicated with long marination times and vacuum packaging liquids!
