The sautéed garlic and onion added to the blender for a quick puree adds a much more aggressive taste in this sauce ;) Even though buying a jar of marinara is cheaper, you can't compare the taste of homemade sauce! After receiving a bushel full of garden tomatoes, I got adventurous and made this Homemade Sauce. It's so easy a beginner cook would impress guests! After my family raved about this, I may never buy jar sauce again. This sauce can be made and used as a spaghetti or marinara.... I used it as part of my Recipe #185861 -- This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled and frozen! I used dried herbs, you can substitute fresh - just be sure to triple the amount ;)
This is the recipe my Mom concocted years ago for barbecued ribs. This is the only recipe we ever used! It is different in that you add preserves to the sauce to give it a sweet taste. Watch out! It can become habit forming! The amount of preserves used would be determined by the amount of sauce made. For the recipe listed I would use enough preserves to make the sauce thick, probably about 1/2 to 3/4 of a small jar. You can use apricot or peach, whichever you have on hand or prefer. One tip for grilling: The sugar in the preserves tends to burn on the grill quickly. To avoid a real clean-up mess, use the sauce at the end of the grilling. When using this recipe for Pulled Pork, omit preserves -- This will give you the perfect sauce for Pulled Pork!
This is the recipe I use to make recipe #15286. For an online tamale making tutorial, including pictures, please see http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=188623 posted in the Mexican cooking forum.
This sauce was adapted from a Mollie Katzen "Moosewood Cookbook" recipe. Add to stir-fried vegetables - plus chicken, if you are not a vegetarian. If you are a garlic lover, add more - it is really strong since the sauce is barely cooked.
A versatile barbecue sauce - sweet and spicy. Kind of like magic -- anything I prepare with this sauce disappears! It's a hit with all ages. I've started preparing it with Xylitol, also known as birch sugar, instead of sugar, and it works just great, plus it's easier on blood sugar levels.
The name says it all! This is an old-fashioned, long-simmering meaty pasta sauce. Add more meats if you wish, and feel free to experiment with ground meats or any other different ideas you may have, but the pork neckbones and sausage are particular to the flavor of the sauce.
This is my favorite spaghetti sauce recipe. It comes from a freezer cookbook called Once a Month Cooking. This makes alot so plan on freezing about half of the recipe. You can use this sauce on spaghetti, manicotti, veal (or chicken) scallopini, or French bread pizza
Thought I'd post this recipe I found in the Nov. 2002 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine early (for those who don't suscribe). I have always made my turkey gravy (in large quantities) in advance of cooking Thanksgiving dinner (only so many burners, and limited oven space available on "turkey day"). I'm posting this recipe because I think its better than the one I've used for years, and any "short cut/advanced prep" that frees up oven/burner space on "turkey day" is a big help to me, so I wanted to share it with all my Zaar friends :) This recipe can be prepared up to 3 days in advance of serving, and reheated in the microwave when needed. BTW: Turkey wings can usually be had at a major discount at most supermarkets/butchers prior to the holidays, since they frequently remove the wings when they "package" the breast roasts. Ask your poultry supplier/butcher to put some aside for you ;)
Cher in Texas, Riffraff, and Bratty 1 have inspired me to post this recipe. It is a very humble dish and is usually my Sunday dinner. It is the Sunday dinner of many Italian-Americans. I know there are probably a million ways to make this dish--please give my version a try.
