Cooking the meatballs in simmering pasta sauce will not only add so much extra flavor to the sauce the meatballs will be melt-in-your-mouth tender, you may of course oven-bake the meatballs for about 25 minutes, --- don't be afraid to add in more Parmesan cheese and a little more milk, there is no need to measure exactly, this recipe is pretty much foolproof, leftover cooked meatballs make a wonderful pizza topping just slice thinly and freeze until ready to use ----- these also make wonderful juicy burgers shaped into patties-- for more of my tried and true recipes check out my food blog at www.kittencalskitchen.com
You will not believe the deeply satisfying flavour of this stew. This is our favourite wintry stew dish - comfort food to the max. The cooking time is more or less accurate, but it really depends on the cut of meat used - not everyone used chuck, and then, not all chuck is the same! You really have to poke and prod and taste to get it to where you want it...but that's what cooking is all about, isn't it? ;-)
This is my "tradmark" Christmas Eve Dinner. DH won't even order prime rib in a restaurant anymore, because he prefers mine. Its a super easy recipe, great for dinner parties, but DO NOT alter cooking times or directions. And DO NOT carve until just before serving. Here NEEDS a clarification!!! The salt is only intended to produce a shell to keep the moisture in. It's not intended to be consumed unless of course you like extremely salty foods. AFTER the roast has rested for 15 mins. Lightly scrape the salt away but not so much that you remove all the seasonings
very tender, very juicy. makes lots of gravy great over mashed potatoes simple to make. melts in your mouth everyone who's tried this recipe agrees you won't find an easier or better tasting beef roast recipe anywhere.
This is a recipe for Chicken Fried Steak, one of the staple foods of Texas. Like with fried chicken, folks in each family or restaurant tend to have their own little "secrets" to preparing Chicken Fried Steak, so you can play with the recipe a bit. But if it don't include the cream gravy, it ain't been prepared right and it ain't a "secret" worth keeping.
These are sooooo great (and EZ)! I grew up eating these about once a week and they are incredible with mashed potatoes or buttered egg noodles and a veggie. While this recipe is basically my mom's, I have changed one thing...instead of using chopped onion in the burgers, I use an envelope of onion soup mix...it gives them the PERFECT flavor! This is now one of my family's favorite meals...try it and it will probably become one of your's, too. P.S. These burgers also work for grilling (without the gravy :).
You'll be sorry you didn't grow up in Chicago, and eat one of those wonderful beef sandwiches from Carm's. This tastes identical. This wonderful recipe came from my sister Linda knowing how homesick I am for Chicago food. Start cooking 18 hours before you want to eat.
Boston's North End is famous for it's Italian markets, restaurants and saint's day weekend festivals and I miss it so much! I was thrilled to find "The North End Italian Cookbook" by Marguerite Buonopane.
A most requested recipe for juicy burgers, whether you grill or pan fry them. Dissolving the salt and pepper in ice water distributes the spices evenly throughout the meat just as some sausage makers do when making sausage. Cook time depends on how well done you like your meat.
