Manhattan Filet with Pan Sauce Bordelaise
This simple technique not only provides you with a NY strip steak that eats like a filet mignon, but the trimmings are used to make a world-class pan sauce. Even if a faux-bordelaise isn't your cup of tea, you can always save the scraps for a Sunday sauce or meatballs. The overnight 'dry-aging' step is optional, but does add a little something extra to the final product.
Simple Beef Short Ribs
The basics of this recipe came from my mom, and it was passed down to her from her mother and Oma. I changed it a little, and you can too. You can braise in basically any liquid you want. The short ribs come out so delicious and tender, and there is not an overwhelming sauce to overpower them.
Korean BBQ Short Ribs (Gal-Bi)
This is a easy way to make Korean BBQ. You can also substitute chicken breast or sliced rib-eye for the short ribs. If you use chicken or rib-eye, you must add thinly sliced green onion tops. This can also be broiled in the oven for the same amount of time.

Dust off your slow cooker. This recipe is worth it. I love coming home to a waiting meal!
Slow Cooker Asian Short Ribs
An alternative to traditionally oven-braised short ribs, these slow-cooker, fall-of-the-bone short ribs are Asian-flavored, incredibly tender, and perfect for a cold winter evening.
Kalbi (Korean BBQ Short Ribs)
This is the staple of Korean fine dining, but too expensive in the restaurants. It is also simple to make at home, and will leave your guests asking for more. Total time includes marinating time. Traditionally, should be served sliced, rolled in romaine lettuce leaves, along with white rice, lightly browned garlic slices, and gochujang (Korean red pepper paste).
Easy Steak Sandwich
I tried for years to make a cheese steak as good as the takeout sub shops of southeastern Massachusetts. I think this is about as close as you can come at home. Freezing the steak the day before makes it easy to cut into very thin slices.
Sous Vide New York Strip Steak
The real advantage to this technique is the fact that you're guaranteeing a perfect medium-rare. If you've never had any luck getting large, expensive hunks of steak cooked to your idea of perfection, then this is the way to go.

Smothered Beef Short Ribs
Here's a great stove top recipe for cooking beef short ribs. They are cooked in beef stock with mixed vegetables. This dish is great served over mashed potatoes.
Bourbon Pepper Pan Sauce
Mastering pan sauces is one of the most important but easiest steps towards producing legit restaurant-quality dishes at home. Assemble all the sauce ingredients before cooking the steak so you can make the sauce during the 5-minute resting time for steak. The rich, sweet, peppery flavor profile also works wonderfully with pork chops and grilled chicken. You can also switch up the bourbon for another liquor, since this really is just a technique recipe.
