Meat Stuffed Eggplants

October 24th, 2015 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

Fun recipe to play with: eggplants stuffed with ground beef and vegetables. Nice combination of meat and veggies. I love eggplants!

For me it is always a bit tricky to hollow eggplants out, it is important to take most of pulp off to make sure they cook through, but it is also important to to not damage eggplant skin. It takes a bit of time and practice.

You can take bigger eggplants and slice them in half lengthwise, or take smaller ones and slice top part off like I did for this recipe.

Quick Fried Beef with Onions

June 6th, 2015 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

This is amazingly quick recipe for fried beef. Perfect dish for when you have some beef frozen up and you need to throw a dinner together quick and easy.

You don’t even need to thaw it all the way, meat will actually be much easier to slice if it is frozen a bit. Just make sure you use sharp knife.

Now, time to cook will depend on the meat cut – the softer meat is the lesser time to cook it will require. Just try from time to time until it is soft enough.

Fried Meat with Mustard and Eggs

May 9th, 2015 in Beef, Chicken, Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina

The magic of this recipe is in the fact that you can prepare everything for it a day before and then just fry the meat when the time is right.

You can actually store marinated meat in fridge for longer and just fry a portion you need every time you need it, which may save time eventually.

Results may vary depending on the taste of mustard you use. So use the one you like :).

The same goes for peppers – I used a mixture I had on hands: red pepper, black pepper, white pepper, coriander, etc, but you can use whatever you like the most.

Choose softer cut of beef for this recipe, pork or chicken may work too.

Beef Liver with Sour Cream

March 28th, 2015 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

Let’s bring liver back to the table: for as nutritious as it is, it doesn’t get nearly enough of the spotlight.

This easy recipe will help you to add all the goodness beef liver has into your diet.

I noticed that in US it is easier to find pre-sliced and cleaned liver, but in case you buy a whole piece, you will need to clean it, remove hard vessel parts and slice it up before continuing with the recipe.

Liver tastes great with boiled buckwheat, this is my first choice for a side dish for any main course with liver.

Meat Stew with Beans

January 31st, 2015 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

If you are looking for quick recipe with meat – try meat stew with beans.

It is pretty quick and is not too complicated to do: cooking time will depend on the meat cut you use, but in average it is between 30 and 45 mins.

I used beef (chuck roast cut) for this one, but pork will work for this recipe as well.

Onion Marinated Roast Beef

April 19th, 2014 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

I am trying to avoid fried foods for some time, and while actually doing so, I am amazed with how many recipes I use involve frying.

So I was staying in front of meat counter figuring out what to cook. And then lady behind the counter suggested to roast some beef.

And this is a recipe I decided to go with: roast beef marinated with onions, black pepper, coriander, allspice and bay leaves.

In addition to ingredients this recipe also required an oven bag or dutch oven with a lid.

Veal Rolls with Pear

March 15th, 2014 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

I saw veal rolls with pear meal in some TV show once and wanted to try it ever since.

The combination of ingredients in this recipe is unusual, veal is pretty expensive and somewhat hard to find here in US. This is probably the reason why I got to this recipe only now.

I used veal scallopini here, because they are already sliced, and it is easier to pick meat pieces of right amount and size. But you can also use whole piece of veal meat and slice it yourself. As for the pear, use ripe fragrant pear for better results.
