Grilled Korean Beef Ribs

It has been forever since we posted a new recipe. We’re still cookin’ and cleanin’ over here, but writing and photographing has taken a back seat. Sorry about that! So what has pulled me back in – – these delightfully easy and delicious ribs! I’ve made these twice now, from an ingredient list scribbled on… Continue reading Grilled Korean Beef Ribs

Weekday Chili with Black and White Beans

So to celebrate, I made a pot of chili. I have a few versions of this up my sleeve – there’s the kind of chili that takes all day to cook, and there’s fast chili that you can throw together in 15 minutes and have on the table in an hour. This particular recipe is quick and versatile – just right for a weekday meal.

Pot Roast with Balsamic Onion Gravy

Recipe modified from For the Love of Cooking There were more important things to tend to than spending long hours in the kitchen – for that afternoon we were picking Brian up at the airport to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with us.  It was also his first visit to what we hope will soon be… Continue reading Pot Roast with Balsamic Onion Gravy

Peppers Stuffed with Curried Beef

I am overly fond of martabak, a savory, meat-stuffed pancake that one of our nearby Thai restaurants has on the appetizer menu.  It is meaty and a little spicy, with curry, minced onions, and garlic… and wholly addictive.  I’m not sure where this treat originates – according to Wikipedia it can be commonly found in… Continue reading Peppers Stuffed with Curried Beef

Sirloin Tip Steak with Harissa Marinade

Silly me, I made the mistake of assuming the grocery store would be open on Sunday, as usual.  Rediscovering that it was Easter meant that dinner plans had to be changed, subject to rescuing something from our freezer.  (Maybe there’s an analogy to be made, but I won’t go there.)  In the recesses of the… Continue reading Sirloin Tip Steak with Harissa Marinade

Latin Lasagna with Beef and Plantains

A good casserole is one of the best comfort foods.  You just can’t beat a one-dish meal for convenience – just pop it in the oven and relax – or for the great way the ingredients play off each other.  This Latin-style lasagna is both sweet and savory, with cumin-spiced ground beef, layers of plantains,… Continue reading Latin Lasagna with Beef and Plantains

Beef Braised with Orange

Last week we ventured up to North Carolina to visit my parents.  The little town I grew up in has changed tremendously over the years – some good changes, and some not so good.  That’s the way change goes!  Big Box stores, like WalMart and the newly constructed Tanger Outlet Center, are blights on the… Continue reading Beef Braised with Orange

Beef and Vegetable Soup

It has been cool and a bit blustery in New Mexico this week – and what better to warm up with than a big pot of soup. This soup has an Italian twist to it, so I wanted to add just a bit of pasta.  Here’s my big confession (followed of course by my justification)… Continue reading Beef and Vegetable Soup

Roast Tenderloin of Beef with Madeira Sauce

From The Fearrington House Cookbook: A Celebration of Food, Flowers and Herbs by Jenny Fitch Valentine’s Day is coming up, and I know many of you are looking for something really special to surprise your sweetheart.  Well, if the love-of-your-life also loves red meat, I promise that he or she will swoon over this recipe.… Continue reading Roast Tenderloin of Beef with Madeira Sauce

London Broil with Lime-Garlic-Ginger Marinade

Last year we bought a 1/4 grass-fed cattle share – most of which has been consumed.  There were a few odd cuts of steak remaining, like this large package labeled “London Broil”.  Now best I can tell, “London Broil” is not the name of a cut of meat, it is more of a preparation method. … Continue reading London Broil with Lime-Garlic-Ginger Marinade

Beef Chili Rellenos

Stuffed poblano peppers are a great way to make a pot of chili more interesting, whether you’re having guests or just using up some leftovers.  This is not a quick recipe because there is a lot of preparation, but your hard work will pay off! The chili in this recipe is mildly spicy.  If you’d… Continue reading Beef Chili Rellenos

Beef Short Ribs Braised in Red Wine

Okay, so I forgot that we have already posted a recipe for braised short ribs….what can I say?  Braised short ribs are really great cool weather food – and especially filling when served over mashed cauliflower or polenta (as pictured here).  This time I did make a few minor changes to the recipe – some… Continue reading Beef Short Ribs Braised in Red Wine
