French Dip Sandwiches

29 Nov

French Dip Sandwiches are a favorite of mine.  I used to only eat them when out at restaurants, not having a good recipe to make them myself.  This is about as simple as it gets.  Even though the cooking time is long, your not really doing much, but letting the slow cooker do its job.  The great thing about making this roast beef in your slow cooker, is that unlike roasting beef in the oven, you don’t have to worry about the meat drying out.  The final product is a super moist, tender and flavorful beef.

Shepherd’s Pie

25 Feb

Beef Shepherd’s Pie is a traditional, all-in-one comfort dish.  Shepherd’s Pie is full of flavor, and with the veggies mixed in with the beef filling, it is the perfect way to sneak in veggies to picky eaters.  The creamy mashed potatoes on top are one of my favorite parts of this dish.  To help make the preparation easier, you can purchase frozen potatoes that are ment for mashing.  Simply cook in microwave and you are ready to mash away.  Much faster then peeling, cubing, and boiling your own potatoes.

Stuffed Bell Peppers

25 Jan

Stuffed Bell Peppers are a classic American dish, that is an all-in-one meal.  You get your meat and veggies in one delicious dish, although, I do like to serve them with a side of french fries.  This filling in the peppers is very similar to a meatloaf recipe.

Flank Steak

28 Dec

Every household should have delicious, foolproof recipes for affordable cuts of meat.  The Hungry Wife Flank Steak recipe is just that.  Flank Steak is a relatively long, flat cut of meat and used in a variety of dishes, such as, London Broil and fajitas.  Because it is a tougher cut of meat, you want to make sure you take the time to marinade and cook it just right.  Paying attention to not over-cooking is very important so that you have a tender steak and not a tough, chewy steak.

Swiss Steak Recipe

15 Mar

Swiss Steak is another great recipe for those days when you don’t really feel like cooking.  There is minimal preparation and does not need to be tended to when simmering over low heat.  The best thing about Swiss Steak Recipe is how great it tastes.  When choosing the diced tomatoes for this dish, I like to get zesty seasoned diced tomatoes.  Seasoned diced tomatoes add nice flavor to the steak and really makes it something special.

Corned Beef and Cabbage

9 Feb

With March just around the corner, I start to get the craving for Corned Beef and Cabbage in preparation to celebrate my Irish heritage.  Even though I love this dish, I seem to forget about it until St. Patrick’s day rolls around.  Corned Beef and Cabbage deserves more respect then it typically gets.  The meat is super flavorful, with a subtle and unique taste.  Leftovers are perfect to use in homemade Corned Beef Hash and sliced on sandwiches.
