Tender Juicy Skirt Steak (Churrasco)

Rating: Unrated
Ever wondered how to get a well-cooked, juicy piece of meat, without butterflying it or cutting down the middle to see if it's done and has a good color? Here you go! Serve with steamed veggies, mashed potatoes, salad, rice, or whatever you fancy.

Andie's Quick 'n Easy Sneaky Sloppy Joes

Rating: Unrated
I cobbled this recipe together from a myriad of online recipes. I couldn't find a more veggie-friendly option, and had BBQ sauce in the fridge. This is a kiddo and grandkid-friendly recipe you can whip up for an in-a-pinch meal... or add it to your regular menu rotation and get those veggies in without a struggle!

Best Burgers Yet

Rating: Unrated
I've been working hard on the best burgers for a long time. I've found this relatively simple recipe to be delicious and rich in flavor, with the lard being the secret ingredient. You could substitute another fat, but for best results lard is the answer! Get creative with toppings!

Bren's Italian Meatballs

Rating: Unrated
The perfect addition to any tomato sauce.

Chipotle Barbacoa

Rating: Unrated
This is as close to a certain big chain's barbacoa meat I have ever made! It is full of intense flavors such as garlic, cayenne, and sweet, smoky chipotle. Make sure you scale down the cayenne and serrano if you can't handle heat because this recipe is packin' lots of it! Serve on corn or flour tortillas garnished with cilantro and topped with lime cilantro rice (from this website), black beans, pico de gallo, guacamole, cheese, lettuce, and sour cream.

German Hamburgers (Frikadellen)

Rating: Unrated
The original hamburger, these are served like a flattened meatball with some steamed string beans and salad. I also like to use this recipe to make Swedish meatballs (but omit the paprika). My Aunt in Hamburg, Germany taught me this recipe and I've been making them ever since. Serve with steamed string beans and tossed salad. Or serve on a Kaiser roll with lettuce, tomato, pickled cucumbers, finely sliced deep fried onions and curry ketchup.

Quick Beef Stir-Fry

Quick and easy. I make this on my busiest weeknights.

Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Rating: Unrated
No more dry, lackluster burgers. These are juicy, and spices can be easily added or changed to suit anyone's taste. Baste frequently with your favorite barbeque sauce. If you find the meat mixture too mushy, just add more bread crumbs until it forms patties that hold their shape.

Stuffed Peppers

Green peppers stuffed with ground beef and rice and topped with a seasoned tomato sauce.
