Beef

Traditional Italian Meatballs

I’d like to say that these aren’t your Nonna’s meatballs, but that is EXACTLY what these are. I use a combination of lean ground beef and ground pork in my meatball recipe to add lots of flavour and to ensure that they are as juicy as can be! The addition of some Parmesan cheese and basil makes them extra delicious!

Steak Salad with Roasted Cherry Tomato Vinaigrette

My favourite variety of tomato is the cherry tomato- hands down. These sweet little gems are super flavourful during the summer and just pop in your mouth when you eat them. I enhance the flavour of the cherry tomatoes by roasting them in the oven before blending them up with a few other (very Italian) ingredients. If you like tomatoes, this salad is for you!

Beef Stew with Dumplings

Beef stew on it’s own is fabulous, but adding homemade dumplings to it brings it to a whole new level! The dumplings are made with simple ingredients that you most likely have in your kitchen already, are a cinch to execute, and looks so gourmet. This dumpling studded stew is sure to warm and impress you and your family!

Red Wine Braised Beef

If fall means indulging in comfort foods, this meal has to be one of them! This Red-Wine Braised Beef recipe is made with an affordable cut of beef, blade roast. Even though this blade roast starts off very tough, it tenderizes quite a bit after a slow 4 hour simmer in the oven. Serve this beef with a side of carrots and mashed potatoes and you have a hearty, comforting meal that is perfect for fall!

Rosemary Beef with Red Wine Sauce

There’s nothing that says “I’m an adult” more than cooking a roast beef. I don’t know too many young adults who attempt to make this meal as many believe that it is a difficult meal to make. While cooking a roast beef can be a bit daunting, it is actually really easy since the oven does most of the work. Just follow this simple recipe for Rosemary Roast Beef and Red Wine Sauce and you will have an elegant roast beef that is perfect for Sunday suppers!
