Cuban-style Steaks in Garlic-Lime Marinade

Cuban-style Steaks in Garlic-Lime Marinade by John Spottiswood

These steaks are a treat and a great way to make an inexpensive cut of meat memorable. You can use bottom round (best), top round, or a thin cut sirloin for this dish. The steaks should be cut about a 1/2 thick. Mine were a little thicker, so I pounded them with a mallet to thin them. In Cuban restaurants, this recipe is called…

Amazing Afghan Chicken

Amazing Afghan Chicken by John Spottiswood

This recipe, known as Murgh in India, is amazingly flavorful and a real crowd pleaser. I served two BBQ chicken recipes for July 4th, my father-in-law's Chinese Barbecued Chicken (linked below) and this new dish. The kids mostly ate the sweeter Chinese version, but the adults split about 50-50 in terms of their favorites. I saw…

Dry Rub Hot Wings

Dry Rub Hot Wings by Malcom Reed

This is my favorite hot wing recipes. You can use either fresh or frozen wing sections or whole wings. If the wings are frozen, thaw the wings overnight in the fridge. A good tip here is to leave the wings in their original bag but place them in a large bowl because they will leak.

Firecracker Chili

Firecracker Chili by Patti Fisher

We had 3lbs. of stew beef and a few ideas. Stew, for instance, but that included veggies Ken doesn’t like. I suggested chili and was scoffed at because Ken is the chili master…a well deserved title. But, today I actually impressed him with my first from scratch chili. Woo Hoo ! Lots of smoky heat and tender meat. Excellent!!!…

You can spice it up by adding extra cumin or a little chili powder, jalapeno, or cayenne if you like, but it is delicious as is. Make sure to chop any additional fixings you like: I used cilantro, avocado and tomato...but they are quite tasty…
