A thick meaty sauce plus a super cheesy filling equals a fantastic lasagna.

Chef John's Fisherman's Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 116
My fisherman's pie gives you flaky cod mingled with spinach in a garlic and lemon-scented sauce underneath a browned crust of creamy, buttery potatoes on top. It really does taste fantastic.

Chinese Pepper Steak

Rating: 4.5 stars 986
An easy meal with lots of savory-sweet flavor in the steak and veggies.

Scott Hibb's Amazing Whisky Grilled Baby Back Ribs

Rating: 5 stars 1394
Man, when your guests bite into these at the Memorial Day cookout, they'll savor meat so tender and juicy that it slides right off the bone and gets you the respect you deserve! I have found that the major restaurant chains who make this awesome dish pre-cook their ribs SLOWLY before the quick grilling process.

Chef John's Classic Beef Stroganoff

Rating: 5 stars 700
Serve this deliciously rich beef and mushroom stew over buttered noodles.

Zippy Shepherd's Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 625
Gather the family round with this quick and easy shepherd's pie recipe. The meat mixture can be made ahead and frozen. You can also substitute instant potatoes for the real thing if you're in a hurry. I especially love to use white cheddar in this recipe!

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Rating: 4.5 stars 1007
Mushrooms, peppers, and onions give full-bodied flavor to this lasagna.

Al's Baked Swiss Steak

Rating: 4.5 stars 95
This is a variation on another recipe, which is great as is, but I couldn't make Swiss steak without green peppers or garlic. I also season the meat instead of the flour; it gets a more intense taste that way.
