Grandma’s Goulash Pot Roast

Spaetzle with beef, carrots, and potatoes in a gravy-like sauce

I love my grandmother’s goulash recipe, which I’ve actually never posted. This pot roast is inspired by her goulash, as is this beef stew. I had a hard time naming this recipe. It’s definitely a pot roast, but has some goulash-like qualities in the way it’s finished. Goulash is more of a stew, but this

Red Wine Pot Roast

Pot roast meat with potatoes and carrots and gravy in a bowl

I was hosting a holiday party for my horseback riding club last weekend, and I needed a recipe that would be a crowd-pleaser but still relatively easy to make. Braising is one of my favorite cooking methods, so a pot roast was perfect. I was cooking for 20 or so people, so my go-to of

Red Wine Braised Short Rib Pot Pie

I was invited to a pie-themed party this weekend and wanted to make something unique. I was torn between a beef bourguignon pot pie and a short rib pot pie. I decided to go with the short rib pie because I knew I could do the short ribs well. I decided to incorporate some saffron

Mustard Tarragon Marinade

Mustard Tarragon Marinade

I was going to make this as a dry rub for filet kabobs last night, but I discovered my steak was bad. I changed this into a marinade for grilled chicken and it did not disappoint. The mustard and tarragon are a great pairing! I ended up also using it on the grilled peppers and

Vegetarian Chili (with vegan option)

vegetarian chili

This recipe follows the basic method of what I usually use to make my chicken tortilla soup and meat chilis. For the first time ever, my chili came out perfectly seasoned without any adjusting needed at all. The recipe itself is vegan – only the toppings take away the vegan-ness and make it vegetarian.

Baked Rigatoni

I made this dish because I wanted something easy to reheat for lunch throughout the week. I don’t have a toaster oven at work, so anything I make for reheating needs to be something that microwaves well. This dish turned out to be great reheated. Sometimes I needed to add a little water to the

Gnocchi Bolognese With Braised Short Rib

Gnocchi bolognese

I have a “book club” with a group of girlfriends that really isn’t a book club – we get together and eat good good and drink wine. Why is it called book club, then? Long story! Last week, we were at a restaurant that has some great short rib dishes. One of my friends ordered

Short Rib Ravioli

Short Rib Ravioli

There is a new local restaurant in an area that desperately needs some good restaurants. One of their specials the first night I went was short rib ravioli, and it was amazing. I knew I needed to try to replicate it at home. I took a major shortcut and used sauce from Wegmans because I

Braised Short Rib Risotto

When my mom was in town for Christmas last year, she ordered this braised short rib risotto when we were out for dinner one night. I tried a bite and it was amazing. Ever since then, I’ve wanted to try to replicate it at home, and I’ve also been wanting to use my new Le
