Spaghetti with Bacon
Great simple pasta dish. Good to have the night before a race. This is also good with sauteed shrimp.
Slow Simmer Beef Stew
This is the best beef stew I've ever tasted. My husband ate 4 bowls the first time I made it and my 9-month-old ate two bowls mashed up! I like to brown my beef for stew, and I hate to dirty both a pot and the slow cooker, so I prefer to cook the stew exclusively on the stove.
Chef John's Best Mushroom Gravy
This rich mushroom gravy is flavored with beef stock and fresh thyme.
Cuban Smoked Sausage with Chickpeas
I developed this recipe after tasting something similar at a local Cuban restaurant. This is a simple and savory stew - delicious over steamed white rice. The seasonings aren't strict measurements so add more of anything to suit your taste.
This is a great way to get your family to eat veggies. My son dislikes boiled cabbage, but agrees this is a tasty dish.
