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…

The Very Best Meatloaf

The Very Best Meatloaf by Foodiewife

This my family's favorite meatloaf recipe, of all time--and has become my most viewed recipe on my blog! What makes this taste so good is a combination of beef, veal* and pork-- pricier, but it doesn't taste like a giant hamburger! Fresh marjoram and spices, hot sauce and herbs, and a fantastic glaze makes this so good-- you really…

Thai Short Ribs

Thai Short Ribs by Nancy Miyasaki

If you've had Korean short ribs, and loved them, you should definitely give these Thai short ribs a try! Short ribs, the flavorful, fatty cuts from the ends of the rib bones, may be my favorite red meat. Get the shorter, English cut short ribs if you can. The sauce is a classic Thai combination of hot, sour, salty, and sweet. A…

Slow Cooker French Dip by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a super easy way to make a very tender and tasty french dip sandwich. Cook it overnight for lunch or all day for dinner and you have a great cold weather meal. I added a salad and sweet potato fries as sides and we enjoyed a great meal.

St. Patrick's Day Beef Stew with Guinness

St. Patrick's Day Beef Stew with Guinness by John Spottiswood

This is a great Beef Stew adapted from a recipe by Margaret Johnson. We doubled the recipe, used about half the butter, and added plenty of salt and black pepper. We also cooked it about 5 hours ahead of time and let it sit in the pot for another 3 hours after it was done cooking. It was awesome.

Khalia - Georgian Beef Stew

Khalia - Georgian Beef Stew by John Spottiswood

This is the incredible, densely flavored beef stew that I enjoyed so much at a Georgian restaurant in St. Petersburg, Russia. I've been searching for this, and finally I nailed it. I had this served in a sizzling cast iron pan in Russia, and while I didn't serve it that way to my dinner guests last night, it tasted just as good.…

Slow-cooker Beef Stew from Argentina

Slow-cooker Beef Stew from Argentina by John Spottiswood

I slightly adapted thie famous Argentine beef stew to be slightly more flavorful...and thus to my liking. The extra cumin seeds, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper don't take away from the flavor of the meat and vegetables, but they give an added kick that makes this classic family stew extraordinary. We had it at our family reunion,…

Georgian Beef and Potato Stew by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious, extremely flavorful beef stew. Serve it over steamed bulgar, steamed rice, or with warm flat bread. Your whole family will love it and your home will smell great for hours! The Georgian name is (სოუსი). Don't ask me how to pronounce it!

Country Style Ribs

Country Style Ribs by Carolinaheartstrings

This is so simple. And so, so tasty. My sweetie, a Southern boy, born and raised, makes us ribs this way. The “gravy” that is left over in the bag doesn’t go to waste either. The next day it and a crock pot full of chicken breasts cook to BBQ flavored perfection.

Pan Seared Sirloin Steaks with Sauteed Onions

Pan Seared Sirloin Steaks with Sauteed Onions by John Spottiswood

We don't eat a lot of steak, and when we do I normally grill it. My mom used to frequently serve pan seared steaks, generally cheaper cuts like sirloin or london broil. So I thought I'd give it a try and see if I could come up with something competitive with my grill. I started with a base recipe from Cook's Illustrated, and…

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…
