Pot Roast with Kale & Horseradish

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 30, 2014 at 6:41pm

I’m back with another braised beef dish! I’ll pretend like I meant to post recipes for beef short ribs and beef pot roast within a couple of weeks of each other, a braised beef series of sorts…except that would be untrue. I’m really just busy, and kind of chilly with the change in temps, and…

Braised Beef Short Ribs: Braise Once, Eat Twice or More

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 16, 2014 at 3:54pm

Aaaand just like that, it’s braising season. Good, given I’ve been braising all summer long anyhow. I’m a big fan of batch cooking – cooking enough food to last a few meals – and there’s no better way to batch cook than to braise, no matter the season. Whether you cook low-and-slow in your oven…

Basic Braised Pork Shoulder (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 14, 2013 at 3:26pm

Website Settings I’ve written before about the beauty of braising a pork shoulder one day, then crafting several meals from it as the week wears on. This version is more basic than the Pork Braised with Chiles & Cinnamon, which means you can eat it even more ways. Seasoned with onions, garlic, salt, and pepper,…

Braise a pot of beans one day, eat well for the next several. It’s the laziest, most delicious way to fill a week with food that I can imagine. Day 1 eat a bowlful of beans, on their own or alongside a roast or spooned over rice. Day 2 fry some beans until crispy and…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 9, 2011 at 2:24pm

Are you still with me? It’s been a lot of beans this last week, I know, but keep in mind that any of these dishes can be frozen for a future warm dinner. This version is sort of dal meets chana masala – two of my two favorite bean dishes. I’ve had the chana masala…

Using a Pot of Beans Part III: Lentil Hummus

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 7, 2011 at 7:42am

This is the same Creamy, Fluffy Hummus – The Way It’s Supposed To Be recipe I posted a few months ago, except substituting black lentils for the garbanzos. That’s the thing with hummus – you can make it with whatever bean you have on hand and it will always be lovely. As true as it…

Using a Pot of Beans Part II: Almost-Instant Vegetable Bean Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 5, 2011 at 10:38am

This is a variation on a recipe from Jacques Pepin’s fabulous cookbook Fast Food My Way. If you like the idea of easy, fast, flavor-packed, healthy dinner ideas – yes, it delivers all of those things – I can’t recommend the book highly enough. As the name implies, this light-yet-filling soup is on the table…

Using A Pot of Beans Part I: Poached Egg Over Lentils, Bacon & Cabbage

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 2, 2011 at 6:25am

It’s Sunday, you’re feeling organized, you’re even willing to cook ahead a bit to make dinner easier during the week.  What to make? A pot of soup is always a winner – always.  But if you’re like me, you eat it for a couple of meals and then you’re ready for something new.  (In that…
