Steak Diane

IMG_4064

Steak Diane is one of my favorite stop top steak dishes. I love it so much I have another recipe on the website I did back in 2011 (check it out here.) This version doesn’t use cream, but it does use a lot of butter.  You can also remove the mushrooms in this version, but […]

Crockpot Apple Cider Beef Stew

IMG_4040

With temperatures staying in the 90s, and mostly high 90s, this October it really isn’t feeling like Fall yet.  So, I’ve decided to have Pinterest bring Fall to me. I bought some fresh squeezed apple cider from Whole Foods last Sunday and wanted to use it in a rich, flavorful stew. After a few searches, […]

Sous-vide Carne Asada Street Tacos

IMG_3221

I make a lot of vegetarian dishes during the week, mostly because anything with meat takes too long to cook from the time I get home from work. One of the ways to make using meat easier and ready when I walk through the door is to use a style of cooking called sous-vide. It […]

Mongolian Beef

I used to love P.F. Chang’s when it first came on the scene, but over the years my desire for it trailed off. I went a few years ago and the dishes are just too salty like a lot of chain restaurants.  So when I came across a recipe from another food blogger I enjoy […]

The Pioneer Woman’s Pot Roast

IMG_2057

  Christmas Day is a perfect day for a pot roast and especially one I have had on my short list for most of 2014. I loved the simplicity of The Pioneer Woman’s Pot Roast recipe I had ran across searching Pinterest one day. I added some potatoes to it since I like a little […]

A Simple Pot Roast on Christmas Day

IMG_5589

Slow cooking is one of the best ways to enjoy a home cooked after a busy day.  This busy day was Christmas here in Los Angeles where it was a crisp 80 degrees outside.  So we needed something comforting and cozy after opening gifts and sledding. Sledding? Yes, sledding. See we decided to get into […]

Korean BBQ Tacos using a SousVide Supreme

IMG_3789

  I’m a very lucky person. There are many reasons: a wonderful family, a loving wife, and once a week the Kogi Korean BBQ taco truck makes a stop right behind the building I work. An order of three short rib tacos makes any day better. It makes life better. Now I love traditional Mexican […]

Texas Brisket for #SundaySupper

IMG_3598

  When I read this week’s SundaySupper theme was “Low & Slow” I knew exactly what I wanted to make and where I would get inspiration from.  As regular readers of my blog will know, this site has been taken over by a lot of slow cooking – cooking in a smoker to be exact. […]

My Meat Prayers have been Answered

IMG_3432

Thank you Meat God. When we moved out of Texas last year to come back to my home state California, one thing I knew I’d miss was Burgundy Pasture Beef.  The ranch in Grandview, Texas was a gem in where I sourced my meats. We would drive to the ranch about every 6 weeks (it […]
