Hungarian Gulyas Soup

Hungarian Gulyas Soup by Gyula Sziraczky

The best way to make this soup is to cook it outside in a "bogracs" (a small, round metal pot with handles) over real fire! Try it and you will never…

I absolutely love the mouthwatering taste of short ribs. This preparation, which has a richly flavored gravy chock full of vegetables, is absolutely fantastic. It's also beautiful to serve (don't be discouraged by the picture)! A perfect dish for a dinner party. You're guests will rave about it.

Big balls of aromatic fresh herbs, rice, beef and lamb. It's a whole meal by itself. Adding dairy to meatballs make them tender. The Advieh is a Persian spice mix of cinnamon, cardamom, cumin, cloves and rose petals.

Oven Brisket with Au Jus

Oven Brisket with Au Jus by myra byanka

This brisket recipe makes a very flavorful natural gravy that can be used for French Dip Sandwiches, cheesesteaks, and other things. Since beef broth is complicated to make, I save the leftover au jus and freeze it.

Pork and Shrimp Pot Stickers

Pork and Shrimp Pot Stickers by A.L. Wiebe

This is my version of a really delicious fried dumpling. I have found many recipes for pot stickers over the years, and it seems that no two are alike. I have made adaptations according to what I have on hand and what I like. Also, I use my handy dandy dumpling folder-upper-thingy that I have pictured here. It cost me 50 cents at a…

Pot Roast

Pot Roast by John A. Dryzga

My father had a large repertoire of dishes that he prepared expertly. One of these dishes was by far the most requested, his pot roast. When family or friends were coming to visit, "Is Ray going to make his pot roast?" was the inevitable question. Not a pot roast always HIS pot roast. He was always more than happy to oblige. Now…
