I usually use thinly cut top round to make milanesas.  While the cut has an annoying fat vein in the middle, it’s very tender, the version sold by Safeway is very thin and it just works great for milanesas. This week, however, Safeway had thinly cut bottom round at half the price as top round […]

Perfect Ribeye Roast

I’ve used this method for cooking ribeye roast (aka boneless Prime Rib) before, but as part of a bigger recipe. I figured I’d include it all by itself for easier reference. It can be served by itself or with a sauce. These instructions are for a 6lb roast.  If yours is larger, add some additional […]

Ropa Vieja Recipe

It doesn’t look very appetizing now, does it? And its name, “old clothing” in Spanish, doesn’t make it sound like something you want to rush to eat.  And yet, this simple Cuban dish is as delicious as anything you’ll ever eat.  It takes some time to make, but it’s well worth it. I first discovered […]

Steak Diane Recipe

After 12 years (yes, 12 years), I have finally arrived at the “Fs” in my international cooking project.  And, of course, that means I must cook classic French food.  Finding classic French recipes is not as easy as it sounds – I have already explored several French regional cuisines and I don’t like repeating dishes.

This year – 2012 – short ribs were eatured as the main dish on my Christmas Eve dinner table.  I love short ribs and I couldn’t think of anything else to make for this dinner.  Of course, I had to try a new recipe because I wasn’t in love with any of the ones I […]

Ropa Vieja recipe

Ropa Vieja, a very simple dish of beef in a tomato wine sauce, is one of my all time favorite dishes.  Indeed, it’s a favorite of several members of my family, my sister asks me to make it every time she visits.  I don’t quite understand how so few ingredients – the only seasoning on […]

Flat Iron steak

Flat iron steak is a newish cut in America that has become popular at posh restaurants.  There are only 4 flat iron steaks per cow, so it’s not a cut that you can often find at supermarkets (though Safeway sell them pre-packaged).  They were on sale for $4 lb at Lucky’s this week so I […]

Orange Beef is the latest product from Hart Food Products, a small mom & pop frozen food company that seems to mostly distribute through Grocery Outlet.  I had tried their Orange Chicken before and I had been less that impressed, but it was another kidless night when I didn’t want to cook and, if nothing […]

Steak w/ cognac sauce

I made this recipe a few days ago to go with some leftover top sirloin I had. While I’m usually the type of person who does not like sauces with my red meat – I’d never dream of using anything besides salt with a NY steak or a ribeye – I don’t find top sirloin […]

I had some steak and sour cream I had to use up, so I decided to make beef stroganoff based on this epicurious.com recipe. I made a few substitutions, most importantly sour cream for the whipped cream, and the results were excellent. Mika, however, did not like how sour it was, so if I make […]
