Do you ever wonder what you can do with sweet potatoes?
Can you imagine sweet potato chili?
A lot of people, some of them in my own family, would rather go hungry than eat sweet potatoes.
But, due to a medical problem I was recently diagnosed with, they are getting only what I can cook and eat for myself… poor babies.
So, it’s out with the old standbys like white potatoes, rice, and GF pasta. And, in with the new like…
Braised round steak is a stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal that will fill up hungry teenagers and satisfy even the most die-hard meat-and-potatoes lover. It can be served “au jus” or with a thickened gravy.
My mom taught me to cook this is braised beef round steak. In fact, it’s one of my earliest childhood memories.
The recipe that my mother taught me survived conversion to gluten-free in 2000, when I was forced to go gluten-free by my celiac disease. And, it remained a family favorite ever since.
Here is a delicious meal that has more than meets the eye. Each forkful of this gluten-free casserole is rich, flavorful and saucy, and more than that, it’s also full of veggies and healthy stuff, too.
Vegetables are wonderful… I love them. But some of my family members are hard to convince that they’re worth eating… especially eggplant!
However, that is not a problem with this moussaka. It looks good, it tastes good and everyone at my dinner table has always liked it, even though it’s full of meat plus eggplant, onion, potatoes, mushrooms and tomatoes.
Just for the record, I have found…
Tender chunks of meat, spices and flavorful vegetables braised together make a fragrant Mexican version of beef stew called Carne Guisada.
The flavors of Carne Guisada are ideal for a simple family dinner. My husband likes it on the mild side, and I kick it up with extra Pico de Gallo or Salsa on mine.
