    Default Your best/favorite recipe!

    How about a thread on those recipes that your family craves and loves?

    Mine is Gramma's Pot Roast-its my DH's "last meal" request. Gramma always said that if she had the President "fa dinna"-(Brooklyn accent)-she would make him this. It was Kennedy at the time

    Gramma's Pot Roast Makes the house smell heavenly

    2-4 lb. RUMP roast-gotta be the RUMP
    6-8 garlic cloves, peeled
    2-4 onions, peeled and cut into wedges
    1-2 carrots, peeled and chunked
    1 stalk celery, plus leaves, chunked
    1/2 bottle red wine (or more)
    2-3 bay leaves
    2 tb. tomato paste, or cut up 1 tomato(NOT CRUCIAL!)
    1 tsp. peppercorns
    whole herbs if you've got them(thyme, rosemary)-not dried-they make the gravy ugly

    Dry rump w/paper towels and season w/salt and pepper. In a large dutch oven, add 1-2 tb. olive oil, and brown the rump well on all sides on med. high-high heat (this always sets off my smoke detector and thus my crazy JRT Wilson). I always brown the fattiest side last, and cook the pot roast with that side down. Once the last side is browning, add the garlic to brown a bit, and add the onion, also, if it fits...its not imperative to evenly brown the garlic and onion, so dont burn it trying to brown it. Dump in the wine and let the alchohol burn off-1-2 min. Add water to bring liquid at least halfway and up to 3/4 way up the rump. Add carrots, celery, bay leaves, peppercorns, herbs, tomato paste.

    This can be done in 20 minutes. Cut the veg. while you're browning the meat. I use 2 wooden spoons to maneuver the rump.

    Bring to a boil. Turn heat down to a very gentle simmer with lid on for 3 hours-it can go 4 hrs.

    When done, remove meat and cover with fiol. Strain cooking liquid into a saucepan. Using a large serving spoon, mash the cooked veggies through the strainer, scraping the goodness from the bottom of the strainer into the gravy saucepan. Mash well-you should get a great biceps workout, and the veg helps thicken the gravy. Season to taste. If you want thicker gravy, thicken w/flour or cornstarch.

    Gramma served this simple dish with green beans, mashed taters, and her famous red cabbage, with a salad. She always used a rump. And the leftovers make FABULOUS samwiches-mayo, salt pepper, fresh onion, and arugula on good bread

    Anyone with a family favorite you're willing to share?

    This is my go-to recipe for almost anything and everything. I modify it a little though. I shred up fresh spinach and mix it in with the ricotta cheese mixture and add a hearty dose of ancho chile powder to the meat. Every potluck I take it to I have no leftovers to bring home and it's one of the few things I've ever made that my quiet husband has absolutely loved.

    Is this a real moist cornbread or more of a pudding/casserole? Sounds divine.

    I love to cook. This is the recipe all my foodie friends demand. It is a bit of work but totally worth it, and worth the calories. The sauce is just unbelievable. I deviate a little -- I brown/pan fry the breaded chicken long enough to be a nice crust and finish in the oven as I have found it is more party-friendly and turns out really moist. I also use a lot more butter during the frying process than the recipe calls for (and it calls for a lot). Don't leave out the green onions, both for color and they offset the richness of the sauce.

    Baked Brie -- my recipe is *slightly* different from this one, but has all the same ingredients. http://www.kevinht.com/recipes/brie.htm It is literally the best thing EVER! Everyone always raves about it. In fact, I used to have to make it for my equine vet every time he came to the farm.
