What’s been for dinner lately: Sheet pan pizza with prosciutto, Parmesan, and white sauce. The crust is from America’s Test Kitchen’s “Pizza al Taglio with Arugula and Mozzarella,” but I baked it with a Parmesan/garlic white sauce, fresh mozzarella, baby … Continue reading Still Eating, If Not Writing
I was trying to think of what to stuff in this mini bacon-wrapped meatloaf, and then my husband brought in a bunch of poblanos from the garden. Usually I stuff the poblanos with meat and cheese, so it was just … Continue reading Inside-Out Stuffed Poblanos. Smoked. With Bacon.
I christened the Weber® Wok I got at the end of last season’s grilling period with beef and broccoli. Good choice. It was really quick and really good. In hindsight, I would make one significant change to how I cooked … Continue reading Beef and Broccoli on the Grill
I’m always looking for ways to change up the old grilled hamburger in the summer, like tonight for example when I made meatloaf burgers. They made a better version of a meatloaf sandwich, more tender than a regular hamburger and … Continue reading Spicy Grilled Ground Meat Kebabs
This recipe makes eight large empanadas—I’m freezing four for later—but you could easily make smaller, snack-sized empanadas. I used half venison and half ground beef in the filling, but you could substitute any other ground meat combination, or even a … Continue reading Venison Empanadas
How to make corned beef reminiscent of pastrami—and really tasty—in a slow cooker This probably doesn’t compare to the pastrami at your favorite deli, but I was looking for something different to do with a corned beef brisket flat. The … Continue reading Slow Cooker Pastrami, Sort Of
I’ve been on a short vacation and then fruitlessly hunting for deer, but before I went away, while we still had unusually warm weather, I cooked some beef short ribs on the grill in my cast iron dutch oven. I … Continue reading Braised Beef Short Ribs on the Grill
Two years ago, I posted a recipe probably given to me by my sister-in-law for hot dog sauce, supposedly similar to that at a Greenville, PA bar and grill. We’ve had the original many times, including recently, and thought this … Continue reading Hot Dog Sauce Redux
. . . if you use a griddle, of course. I hope you haven’t tried it right on the grill grate, but I’d like to see the pictures if you did. 😉 It means my husband won’t be getting his … Continue reading You Can Smash Burgers on the Grill . . .
Personally, I think the term patty melt is stupid, well, maybe not stupid, but not very creative. Wikipedia doesn’t seem to know its derivation, but does trace it back to the 1940s, at least. I’m guessing it was developed in … Continue reading Patty Melt on the Grill
Finishing up the Carne Asada I started this morning with the previous post’s salsa marinade, I moved to the grill just before dinner. My almost-1 lb of skirt steak made four small pieces, which I grilled over very hot direct … Continue reading Carne Asada with Skirt Steak, Pt. 2
This sauce is a nice change from tomato sauce—actually, we hardly ever eat tomato sauce, but we’re not normal. The roasted pepper sauce is mild and sweet, but if your peppers are red, you might just fool your family into … Continue reading Baked Rice with Roasted Pepper Sauce
