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…

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork Roast by Robyn Savoie

I was craving cranberries. So I pulled out this recipe I had for a little while and made it for dinner tonight. I rely on a can of cranberry sauce to create the sweet tangy sauce for this tender pork entree.

Low-Fat Spice Rubbed Roast Turkey

Low-Fat Spice Rubbed Roast Turkey by Robyn Savoie

Traditional turkeys are nearly flavorless when you skip the skin and gravy—and that’s where most of the fat and calories lie. This salty-spicy-sweet rub keeps the meat lean but still plenty of flavor. This recipe easily converts to a 3 - 4 pound roasting chicken. Just cut the seasonings in half. The instructions include cooking…

The Best Chile Rellenos Ever

The Best Chile Rellenos Ever by Mihir Shah

I love chile rellenos and this is a spectacular recipe - I use a little less cheese than you'll probably get in a restaurant, but it "feels" better that way. Feel free to add more cheese (or use different kinds of cheese). Enjoy!

Grilled Flanken Style Korean Short Ribs (Galbi or Kalbi)

Grilled Flanken Style Korean Short Ribs (Galbi or Kalbi) by John Spottiswood

I adapted this recipe from one in Bon Appetit and another from Chef John (foodwishes.blogspot.com). Chef John recommended blending an asian pear into the marinade to help tenderize the meat. I didn't have an asian pear, so I substituted a fuji apple and reduced the sugar slightly. I thought the resulting marinade, and ribs, were…

Grilled Tandoori Turkey Tenderloin

Grilled Tandoori Turkey Tenderloin by Bob Vincent

This is a fun rendition of Tandoori. It is adapted from a recipe in Cuisine At Home seven years ago. Since most people don't have a tandoor; a wood clay oven, similar results can be obtained by grilling the turkey on high heat. Don't be put off by the amount of spices used. Combined with the yogurt and sour cream for the marinade…
