At the Gilroy Festival in California, Gourmet Alley chef Lou Trinchero oversees a team of cooks that produces as many as 21,200 of these mouth watering sandwiches during the three day festival! Barbecued beef topped with sauteed sweet peppers and garlic brings people back year after year. Adapted from Country Living magazine(July 1987)
This is a recipe from the issue of April 2007 of Coup de Pouce. A recipe for the barbecue that needs only a few ingredients that you probably have in your pantry. ETA : I made this recipe on August 1, 2011. I made the recipe for 1 steak. I let the marinade in the steak for 1 hour. The taste was really good. We both enjoyed it.
This marinade will produce the most tender and not to mention the best tasting steak and it's enough for up to four steaks about 1-1/2-inches thick --- just remember to bring the steaks to almost room temperature before grilling this will relax the meat fibers and make for a more tender juicy steak --- the amounts may be doubled but keep the garlic at the same amount, for best results it is recommended to not substitute any ingredients, do not add any salt to the marinade and do not salt the meat until ready to grill --- this marinade may be used for any cut of steaks.
This is a teriyaki style marinade ---who ever said that marinades are only for flavor and not tenderizing has never tried this recipe! this marinade produces the most fabulous tasting beef and pork and tenderizes like nothing you have ever had before! I developed this recipe almost 20 years ago and still use it to this day, this works fabulous on a London Broil, it makes the best kabobs and pork tenderloins!--- the longer the meat marinades the more tender and juicy it will be, so plan ahead the meat needs to stay in the fridge for a minimum of 8 hours to 24 hours (even better if left for 24 hours!) the amounts listed are enough for 2 pounds beef or pork so you might want to double or even triple the ingredients, if I am doubling or tripling I usually cut back on the soy sauce and still only use 2-3 tablespoons fresh garlic, you can add in 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder also, the powdered meat tenderizer is only optional you do not have to use it this works great even without it! don't forget to allow the meat to come down to almost room temperature before cooking, this will relax the meat fibers and create a more tender meat --- DO NOT substitute the honey for anything else but pure maple syrup, and if possible I recommend using honey that is what works as the tenderizer
I always make this pot pie with the left over gravy from my blade pot roast (recipe#151068) if I don't have 2 cups I add in some consomme or beef broth to make up the 2 cups, but you can use any leftover gravy recipe or just use canned consomme or beef broth, but I have to say it's much better using gravy --- this can also be made using a double pastry but I don't bother with that it's just as good, and easier using just one pastry top --- make certain to simmer all the sauce with the cooked beef on top of the stove for about 15-20 minutes, this will improve and intensify the filling mixture --- do not season with salt until just before ready to transfer into the pie dish or casserole, trust me the beef filling is so good you may find that you will have it half eaten before you even get a chance to bake it in the crust and it's also wonderful topped on baked puff pastry shells too --- please do not omit the potatoes and carrots, they add so much to this pot pie --- you will love this!
A great recipe for a chuck underblade steak that is usually inexpensive, but too often turns out tough. This one melts in your mouth and my family asks for it often. Good over mashed or small boiled potatoes, or rice.
When I was a child, my family used to eat this at least once a week due to the fact that it is inexpensive and a little goes a long way. We also added fresh herbs or sometimes whole kernel corn. Its even better the next day and it freezes well.
A great pasta and ground beef casserole. Hearty and delicious. The beauty of this recipe (besides great taste) is it's ability to freeze (and defrost) so well, with no loss of flavour, making it ideal for OAMC (once a month cooking).
Cabbage and meat mildly seasoned with garlic and onions in a creamy cheese sauce and topped with breadcrumbs for a pretty presentation! A real comfort food. Even those who say they HATE cabbage will eat this and like it! I have even made this without the meat- using bulgur and veggie broth. Here is how: Just replace the meat with the same amount of bulgur- (for 1 lb of meat sub 1 cup bulgur) you will want to soak the bulgur according to the instructions on the package- if you bought it in bulk here is how...
Bring 2 cups of veggie broth ( can use bouillon and water) per 1 cup bulgur
When broth is boiling stir in bulgur. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until bulgur is soft. All the broth should be absorbed. Fluff the bulgur with a fork as you would rice and add to your recipe.
I have used beef, pork, turkey and chicken with great results too.

This is a staple food in the small Kansas (primarily German-American) town where I was born, and is now a favorite at my house here in Belgium. The recipe comes from my Grandma Rosie. My mother uses a BOX OF HOT ROLL MIX for the roll portion, but as that is not available to me, I have included the hot roll recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook book. Your yield will depend on the size of rolls you make, but I would estimate about 15 to 20. Preparation time includes time for allowing dough to rise (estimated). Don't let the length of the recipe (or my assembly instructions) spook you, it is really very easy and the assembly is fun for kids, too ! In my opinion they are just as tasty cold as warm from the oven.
This is one of the best recipes I've come up with for beef roast. The cheapest cuts come out tasting like you slaved over a stove all day long. You can add potatoes and carrots to the recipe if you like, or shred it and serve it as a French Dip sandwich with the au jus juice from the crock pot on the side. If you are watching your sodium, use the lite soy sauce and it will taste just as delicious.
