A standard Russian peasant dish handed down from my great-grandfather. Nothing fancy, but I haven't met anybody yet who doesn't like it. Great on chilly days. (Note: my family used to add a dab or two of butter to their plates, but that's optional.)
Our Oh-so-yummy and EZ-to-make croquettes! These are great for OAMC too. The croquettes freeze well, then just pop them in the microwave for a quick meal or snack. Does not include 3 hr chill time. Cone shape is traditional for croquettes, but I have made patty shaped ones that are just as wonderful. Try adding some chopped mushrooms too. Thanksgiving leftovers?.. Try Recipe #266220 ;)
This definitely falls into several categories--easy, tasty, and comfort food-y come to mind. I say these are "not for company," because surely when company comes you'd want to serve them chicken and dumplings that take all day to make. This recipe takes about 15-20 minutes to make. Even better--no chicken bones to worry about (because I don't know about you, but when I find a bone in my chicken and dumplings, I just have to stop eating.) Works equally well as a main dish or side dish. Serves 2-4.
From Food Network's Ultimate Recipe Showdown- Comfort Foods. This wonderful recipe was submitted by Brett Greenberg. While it looks wonderful and got lots of oohs and ahs from the judges, as written, this is an artery-clogging heart stopper! Using low fat ingredients in the bechamel sauce would be an easy way to lighten this up.
Searching for that "Grandma's house smells so good" pot roast dinner? Got it right here! Have perfected it, and MAN! (Actually worked on this recipe for several years now, don't be fooled by the mustard and horseradish, the flavors mellow as it cooks, and tastes like you literally stepped back in time...so hope you try this, it's wonderful, and a keeper...:)
A hearty delicious beef stew ready in less than 2 hours! Of the dozens of different recipes I've tried, this is my favorite. The Dumplings in this recipe are from this site (Recipe #30965) and they are great (light and fluffy).
I don't even like Pork, but was tricked into tasting this dish when I was told it was chicken. WOW! The meat was sooo tender and juicy; so tender in fact, that it was literally falling apart! It was like nothing I'd ever tasted before! Definitely not like my mother's hard, crusty pork chops! lol! This recipes goes hand in hand w/ some mashed potatoes. Just pour the leftover gravy on the taters' and enjoy!
Posted in response to a request for smothered chicken. The absolute best smothered chicken I have ever had was at Sylvia's restaurant in Harlem. I found this recipe on the Web, apparently from a cookbook put out by Sylvia herself.
