Stuffing Meatloaf

If you’ve nev­er tried meat­loaf with stuff­ing, you’re miss­ing a real treat!

Braciole

A rus­tic South­ern Italy com­fort food with three of my favorite fea­tures: It’s easy; you have a lot of time to hang out with fam­i­ly while it sim­mers; and it makes the house smell great!

Slow Cooker Prime Rib

Time to sack up, march brave­ly into the unknown, and emerge with a new way to pre­pare the King of All Beef. No child sac­ri­fices needed.

Murder Chili

This chili is to die for. Or kill for, at least.

Upside Down Meatloaf

Meat­loaf is a com­fort food, and as such is sub­ject to the fol­low­ing require­ments: 1. It must be served with mashed pota­toes and green beans. 2. Din­ers must mix the  peas and mashed pota­to together.

Chateaubriand

Take it from Sam Elliott and Han­ni­bal Lecter: You can’t go wrong with chateaubriand.

Au Jus

Yes, we know: “Au Jus” means “with juice,” and occa­sion­al­ly you see a menu with prime rib or a French dip sand­wich say­ing “With Au Jus.” If you’re the kind of wiseass who has to say, “Oh, it comes WITH WITH  juice?” try not to imag­ine going to Coci­na Kitchen Restau­rant on the cor­ner of Table Mesa Road and Plaza Square Dri­ve after stop­ping at the auto­mat­ic ATM machine. It’ll be messy if your head explodes.

American Chop Suey

All chop suey is Amer­i­can chop suey: Chop suey was (prob­a­bly) invent­ed in New York City in 1896. Oh well.

Beefy Lentil Soup

Stop yelling. The beef is right here.

Corned Beef & Cabbage

I love corned beef, but I’m not a fan of the mushy cab­bage and veg­gies you get when it’s all pre­pared in the same slow cook­er. With this recipe you’ll be cook­ing the beef, cab­bage and oth­er veg­gies and spuds sep­a­rate­ly so they’re all done just right.
