If you’ve been craving something delicious to make on your propane stove, then you’re in luck. Keep reading to see some of the absolute best recipes on the face of the planet.
Fire Up the Propane Stove and Give These Recipes a Try
The Bon Appetit Patty Melt
A great patty melt is truly a thing of beauty and this one from Bon Appetit is no exception. Between the delicious caramelized onions, the perfectly-seasoned ground beef, and the crispy crust on the toast, everything about this recipe is a home run. Pretty much everything you need to make this amazing sandwich is probably already in your fridge or your pantry, so there’s really no reason not to try such an incredible sandwich as this one.
The end result is something that’s gooey and crunchy and full of flavor. Between the sharp cheddar and the swiss cheese, how could it not be? One reviewer says that “getting those onions nice and caramelized lends so much sweetness and flavor, which balances the sandwich as a whole” and that you really need to “be patient with them” in order to get the best results.
Trust us when we say that it’s worth taking your time to get it right because when you pair this patty melt with a few homemade potato wedges (all you need to do is slice potatoes, season with olive oil, seasoned salt, and black pepper and bake until they’re golden brown) and a cold drink, you’re in for a real treat.
Chicken Pot Pie IX
Our next featured recipe comes from All Recipes and boasts a nearly perfect rating that’s based on over 8,000 reviews. That ought to tell you something right there! The All Recipes website also notes that over 16,000 people have made it. Once again, you probably have everything you need to make it in your kitchen already, but this chicken pot pie is certainly more than the sum of its parts.
All it takes is a bit of effort and just over an hour of your time and you’ll be left with what is quite possibly one of the best recipes of all time. It’s never a bad idea to have an easy-to-follow recipe for a bit of comfort food in your repertoire and this one ought to fit the bill just fine.
Take a quick look at all of the glowing reviews and you’re sure to find that it’s something you’ll want to try for yourself. Some reviewers have even suggested changes that they’ve made, so be sure to look at those suggestions to see how you can tailor this dish to suit your family’s needs. One reviewer had the following to say: “I had never made chicken pot pie before and this one was easy and tasted wonderful.” It doesn’t get much better than that!
Other reviews mention the fact that it is simple to make and that it was a huge hit for the people who tasted it. Perhaps the best praise, however is from one reviewer who said that her “husband and two pre-schoolers ate the whole pie!” that sounds like high praise to us!
Smothered Pork Chops
As long as we’re on the subject of comfort food, we might as well round it out with a great recipe for pork chops, right? This one from Food Network and renowned chef Tyler Florence is a big winner. It holds 4.6 stars based on nearly 800 reviews and perhaps best of all is the fact that you can prep and cook the entire meal in just over half an hour. That’s a win/win no matter how you look at it!
These pork chops also continue our trend of highlighting recipes that don’t require a special trip to the grocery store to pick up some exotic ingredients. Instead, chances are that you have pretty much everything you need in your pantry at this very moment. In fact, the only things you may not have on hand are buttermilk and the pork chops themselves, but that’s easily remedied.
Reviewers are in agreement, noting that “this is a very easy recipe that has great flavor” and we couldn’t agree more! One reviewer in particular even notes that he has “this is a very easy recipe that has great flavor” and that he’ll be making it for guests again and again. This would indeed make a great dinner to serve if you have guests over, but we’re partial to making it when it’s just the family at home because it’s hard enough to get enough when you’re only fighting with three or four other people to have another portion!
