Ajiaco (Beef and Pepper Stew)
This is my take on the ubiquitous Latino stew, ajiaco. This version uses leftover roast beef, sweet red peppers, and creamy baby potatoes simmered together in a spicy broth.
Stuffed Baby Yorkies
This is my take on a favorite pub appetizer: mini Yorkshire puddings stuffed with roast beef and horseradish. They are delicious served hot with au jus. Or leave them unstuffed and serve as traditional Yorkshire pudding.
Mincemeat Pie Filling
A friend gave me this recipe for mincemeat many years ago. It is so good that even those who do not care for mincemeat pie likes it. If preferred, use molasses instead of sorghum. Also, apricot juice can be substituted for the pineapple juice. This makes enough filling for 2 (9 inch) pies.
I came up with this one night when I didn't know what to cook. I had leftover steak in the fridge, so I decided to get creative. These came out wonderful! The measurements are approximations, so feel free to change them according to your tastes. Serve with salsa, guacamole, and sour cream.
American Shepherd's Pie
This is an 'Americanized' version of that old standard, Shepherd's Pie. My family loves it! You can prepare your mashed potatoes as you normally would -- adding butter, milk, sour cream, whatever!
Ground Beef Shepherd's Pie
Here's a quick, throw together recipe for shepherd's pie. Browned meat smothered in rich mashed potatoes with your favorite vegetables. A quick and easy dinner to make for your family.
Prime Rib Soup
This rich and satisfying soup is the best I've ever created. Hubby is always excited when I make a prime rib because he knows this soup will follow within a day or two. The ribs are sliced from the prime rib before serving and saved just for this recipe. I always buy a prime rib with the bones in because it makes the roast better tasting and the ribs are a bonus not to be missed!
Stuffed Mexican Peppers
This is a recipe I came up with 20 years ago that has recently won me the grand prize in our paper's holiday recipe contest. It is my family's favorite meal. Serve with tortilla chips on the side.
