Braised brisket in Guinness with mushrooms

Braised brisket in Guinness with mushrooms

I have never really understood why or when celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day became more about food than drink, but in the spirit of exalting my Irish ancestry, I am cooking one of my favourite cheap cuts of meat, brisket, in a bit of the ruby stuff (Guinness is actually a deep red colour and not black) and lobbing on a little parsley, as a nod to the insane greenness of St Paddy’s Day. Brisket is a che…

Mozzarella & Pecorino Romano “Stacked” Shells with Beef, Carrots and Celery

Mozzarella & Pecorino Romano “Stacked” Shells with Beef, Carrots and Celery

I’m known for never making the obvious and never doing the same thing everyone else does. I try to get creative every time I cook and this recipe is no exception. I started cooking without a game plan — I simply started to chop up a few veggies and let the rest happen naturally. It’s a bit scary to cook this way, but sometimes the stars align and this is the beautiful and delicious end result. S…

Bok Choy and Beef

I love this recipe because it is so simple and when you’re in a hurry to make dinner, it’s an easy pick. You get the healthy green bok choy and the savoury taste of ground beef. From the original site: As you could probably tell by now, I love easy recipes. The easier, the quicker – the better. This is one of my go-to recipes when I’m feeling lazy. My dad, Papa Gastro was the one who taught me this recipe…

Cabbage Beef Pockets

Cabbage Beef Pockets

A savory beef and cabbage filled bread pocket. We make a lot and freeze the leftovers. They freeze and reheat really well and make a great last minute meal. From the original site: A tradition in my husband’s family for as long as I have known him. It is a bread pocket filled with meat and cabbage.

This recipe is as simple as 1-2-3! You can make it with pasta from a store but it’s more tender and delish if you cook it yourself.

How to pre-cook and freeze meatballs

How to pre-cook and freeze meatballs

I love the convenience of reaching into the freezer and grabbing a few handfuls of meatballs for something like a quick spaghetti dinner.  When my child was a toddler, meatballs were a great alternative to whatever meat the adults were having (like steak!), so I’d pull out a few frozen meatballs, and quickly have a great kid-friendly main dish. But those bags of meatballs from the grocery store free…

Tuscan Beef Stew

Tuscan Beef Stew

Out here in California we are staring to see signs of spring, but I know that all my friends in the Mid-West and on the East are still firmly lodged in the throws of winter.  Here’s a recipe for a lovely beef stew that I like to serve over a creamy polenta. Here’s what you’ll need: 1 red onion 2 cloves garlic 3 carrots cuts into 1/2″ pieces 3 stalks of celery cut into 1/2 pieces 2 pounds ste…
