If you like bleu cheese...you should love this easy meal. Prep time is the length of time to let the meat marinade as well as to create the final sauce. (This is a copykat with a few adjustments but for the life of me I don't know where I got it)!
This is our traditional St. Patrick's Day meal. I have served this sweet, spiced version of corned beef ever since I first tried it years ago. Not the healthiest meal, but worth it for just that one special holiday each year. I serve this with soda bread, mashed parsnips, and boiled cabbage. This serves 4-6. If you prefer, you can sub mini red skinned potatoes and baby carrots so you don't need to do any cutting, just use more of them. Adapted from a Killian's recipe.
Chicken-Fried Steak is so 'Texas', and the Austin dance hall has one of the best in the state. One of the old traditional ways to tenderize the beef was to pound the "heck" out of it with a Coke bottle or saucer. Rich, peppery gravy is a must for a successful chicken-fried steak. I recommend a round steak, pounded into tender submission by hand rather than machine-tenderized cube steaks.
I sure love a yummy pork chop, especially when it is super elegant and perfect for guests. This dish is grilled, and should not be baked! Please note that the pecans add an elegant touch to this dish. It's a wonderful entrée to serve during holiday entertaining. Adapted from The
Most supermarkets do offer boneless butterflied lamb leg for sale. It is usually already tied; you will have to remove the string and retie this recipe with your own string. Preparation for this cut has more steps than usual, but well worth it. The juices from leeks, garlic and herbs seep into the incisions and infuse the meat with a wonderful exotic flavour. Topped with pan gravy, your meal will have guests coming back for seconds. Serve with your favourite vegetables, potatoe or rice. The smooth taste of a Cabernet Shiraz or a crisp Chablis enhances the flavour of herbs in lamb. One of my favourite lamb recipes.
