Smash Burgers are quite possibly the greatest burgers around! You take seasoned ground beef and smash it onto a griddle. You let the griddle caramelize one side of the burger and then flip, allowing a super tasty crust to form on the other side. These burgers cook quickly, allowing for the finished product to be juicy and delicious! These are hands down the best burgers ever. I love Smash Burgers!
One of our favorite holiday meals is Beef Wellington. It gives you a great beef roast in a faster amount of time than a rib roast. Plus, it adds a nice little surprise for your holiday guests. To be honest, who doesn’t love the look of a perfectly cooked beef wellington just sitting on the table?! If you want to impress your guests this holiday season, this recipe is for you! Plus, it is super tasty.
The story of this Beef Ragu with Pappardelle started when Dana went up to a party in Brooklyn a couple of months ago. The party was just around the corner from a pasta shop. Looking through the shop she spotted some of the best looking pappardelle around. She had to buy it. Once she got home I was excited to try it out. I wanted to make something to utilize the pasta to its fullest potential. So I decided to make the ultimate comfort food, a Ragu! To make it easy on me, I braised the beef in a slow cooker. Set it and forget it. It does not get any easier than that.
My son loves meatballs. Therefore, we have them at least once a week in our house. Since we have them so much, I get a little meatballed out. So I decided to make a little twist on the traditional meatball. I stuffed them with soft and gooey mozzarella cheese. These mozzarella stuffed meatballs are amazing! They are a must try, and have become the go to meatball recipe for our weekly meatball meal.
With the sudden drop in temperature and the start of football season, I have been craving chili. I have made a ton of chili recipes, but wanted to create one that emphasized corn and black beans. The combination of corn and black beans just intrigues me. So I went through my spice cabinet and started grabbing spices. After a few changes, I got the flavor that I was craving. This chili ended up being one the tastiest that I have made. The addition of the corn kernels added a nice texture and flavor. You have to try this chili.
In the last few weeks since Black Friday, there have been crazy deals on everything from toasters to turkeys. One ad that we saw had Standing Rib Roasts for $4.99 a pound. Not too shabby. So, this year Dana and I thought that we would change things up a bit and cook a Standing Rib Roast for our holiday meal. It was the best decision that we made. It was freaking awesome! Who doesn’t love a huge hunk of meat covered in a fresh herb rub and roasted to perfection!
The other week I went into the local super market and found some Sirloin Tips on sale. I love sirloin tips. They are tender and delicious!
