Grilled Steak Sandwiches with Chimichurri and Bell Peppers

So when you buy half a cow (even if you distribute among eight other people) you end up with a lot of beef. . . and a lot of the steak pieces are bigger than what you see at the grocery store meat counter. We made a sirloin the other night but the steak was […]

We’ve Got Beef!

. . . was the title of the e-mail I received Thursday night. That’s right. Our half cow was ready. Alexander Farms is mostly known as a chicken farm with a sustainable focus. I see their eggs offered in some of the most locally conscious restaurants in town (like Fino), but I found out through […]

Beef and Bacon Meatloaf

Ah meatloaf. The classic meat and potatoes dish. I have made so many variations on this dish, I’ve lost count of them all. I decided to try this on out since it was on the cheap and easy section of Bon Appetit’s January issue. And really, anything with bacon in it sells me pretty quickly. […]

Beef Stew

So this is one of those recipes that is such comfort food that I love when it’s cold enough to finally make it. My mom used to make this for me and I always loved it – it’s just so filling and delicious! The other thing I love about it, is that it is one […]

Asian Steak Topped with Bell-Pepper Stir Fry

This may be ridiculous to say, but I had no idea how good a NY Strip steak was. It’s pretty amazing. . . I bought one small steak and Jason and I split it because it is pricey (it was still plenty of food for us). This recipe was pretty tasty, again, not many ingredients […]
