I found this recipe on a low carb site and modified it slightly to suit our tastes. We had it for dinner last night and it was AWESOME!! Very yummy and the flavor of all those fresh veggies blended beautifully with the sauce! DH went back for seconds, so this is definitely a keeper. Add a side salad and your meal is complete!
Our son always loved this recipe. He never knew it was made with you-know-what, FAKE crab, until after he worked on a crab boat a few years ago! Of course, you can always use real crab. It's easy to put together and with a salad it makes a nice meal. I always make it with lowfat sour cream, lowfat soup, and I just use butter flavored cooking spray to replace the butter. When done this way it cuts out almost all the fat, and it's still good.
I got this recipe from a friend who was raised in Argentina. It was one of her favorites. It soon became one of mine. This recipe can be prepared up to 8 hours ahead and baked at dinner time. Bring to room temperature first. It is also great re-heated the next day.
One pot--so simple! My MIL, who is from the Dominican Republic, has ALWAYS made this. Every since the very first time she made it for me, it has been my FAVORITE dish. Even my kids, ages 12 & 5 and are incredibly picky, will eat this meal. We usually make it with a side salad and fried Plantains like in Recipe #187281. Oh and the house smells incredible while this is cooking!
My aunt was a typical little polish lady that fed everyone! I remember her serving this with mashed potatoes and warm rye bakery bread. It was a good time with the whole family at the table eating great food.
The amount listed will serve about 3-4 people although my DH and DS could eat this dish by themselves lol! you can double this recipe if desired, white button mushrooms can be replace for the portabellos. This dish will have you clammering for more, and it tastes even better the following day, but I doubt if there will be any leftovers lol! Use as much portabello mushrooms or button mushooms and cheeses as desired for this recipe, I don't bother measuring. This can be served as a side dish or a main dish, it's a pretty filling dish especially if you use portabello mushrooms!
The secret to this recipe is to marinate the meat before cooking. This adds additional flavor to an already flavor rich dish. You can use beef or chicken. I use round steak, cut 1/2" thick or skinless chicken breasts. Having the meat slightly frozen will help in cutting it into thin strips.
This is the most awesome beef stew. For years, I tried to make beef stew that was thick and yummy, but ended up with beef and veggies in greasy water. Then I found this recipe and have used it for years! I usually serve with cornbread. (Cooking time includes slow cooking in crockpot!)
Before I knew the difference between a butternut squash and spaghetti squash, I bought the former by accident and discovered the taste was much better than spaghetti squash in this recipe. There are other spaghetti squash recipes posted but IMHO this is simpler, lighter and fresher tasting. There is less clean-up involved too. I think the original recipe was based off one I found in The New Basics cookbook.
This is a hearty traditional Polish dish consisting of boiled cabbage leaves stuffed with ground beef, chopped onions, and rice or barley, baked in a spicy tomato sauce with sliced carrots for sweetness and mushrooms for heartiness. I remember eating only the stuffing when I was young. Now I eat it all and my kids cabbage they don't want. It's worth all the work! You can cook stove top very low heat, I use a rack on the bottom of the pot then layer the rolls, to prevent burning! Off the top of my head I'd say it makes about 20 rolls (give or take). Smacznego!
