True Italian Porcini Mushroom Risotto

Rating: 4.8 stars
As classically Italian as you can get, this unadulterated risotto is made in the traditional way and simply flavored with porcini mushrooms, white wine, butter and Parmesan cheese.

Roast Beef Tenderloin

Rating: 4.91 stars
One secret of this beef tenderloin is the slow oven, which allows for a gentle roasting, and produces an even, rosy hue throughout the muscle. The other trick is roasting the beef on top of the pan sauce, which not only flavors the meat, but also humidifies the oven for a moist, aromatic cooking environment.

Short Ribs Braised with Mushrooms and Tomatoes

Rating: 4.89 stars
The short ribs are slowly braised with easy-to-find dried porcini mushrooms (for real, ask someone at the fancy grocery store and they'll find them for you!) until they turn into a triumph of fork-tender goodness. I love these short ribs over mashed potatoes, but the rich tomato and mushroom gravy is fantastic over soft polenta as well. I really hope you give this cool weather wonder a try.

Braised Beef Cheeks

Rating: 5 stars
This has been a hit with everyone that has tried it.

Chef John's Bigos (Polish Hunter's Stew)

Rating: 4.42 stars
This meaty stew is usually made with wild game such as venison or boar, but you can use beef, pork, or other meat--just use a lot. It's perfect for feeding a crowd, especially when the weather turns cold and dreary.

White Pizza with Porcinis

Rating: 4.5 stars
This recipe uses dried porcini mushrooms that have been rehydrated in warm water. If you can find fresh porcinis, also known as cepes and the great bolete, you should definitely use them! It's an amazing taste.

Porcini are the most flavorful mushrooms you can find. This risotto recipe explains how to make the risotto the traditional way, as well as in a pressure cooker. With a pressure cooker, you can have this authentic Italian risotto ready after just 4 minutes of cooking!

Make-Ahead Marsala Turkey Gravy

Rating: 4.8 stars
The Thanksgiving Day kitchen is a busy, hectic scene that can intimidate even the most experienced cooks. By doing your gravy ahead of time, you make that last-minute production a lot easier. That's not to say I want you to throw away all those lovely turkey pan juices sitting in your roasting pan. Time permitting, strain them into a saucepan, boil them down, and add them to this sauce.

Tagliatelle con Salsiccia (Tagliatelle with Sausage)

Traditional Italian dish. Garnish with grated Parmigiano cheese.
