Beef Potato Mushroom Casserole

Not the fastest recipe to cook, but it is definitely worth trying: two layers of potato and beef mushroom stuffing in between, all dressed up with sour cream sauce – tastes delicious fresh out of the oven. And also reheats well.

I used ground beef for this one, but any ground meat will work as well. Just use the one you like.

If you have a mandoline – use it, otherwise make sure potatoes are sliced in equally thick pieces for even cooking.

Boiled Beef Tongue

Boiled beef tongue is one of foods I love from the childhood, I love the taste, and it also is nutritious and easily digestible and is a good source of protein.

Boiled beef tongue is a perfect dish on its own, that is you can serve it with a side. But it can be also used for sandwiches, or be sliced into a salad, or be used in further cooking.

Now, cooking time for beef tongue will vary greatly depending on it size and age. It will be anywhere between 2 and 4 hours. So start testing readiness at about 2 hours mark of boiling.

Broth prepared from cooking beef tongue with vegetables tastes great as well, you can use it for a soup or some other cooking, just discard roots and use fresh ones at that point if needed.

Quick Fried Beef with Onions

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

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.

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

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.

Meat Stew with Beer, Mushrooms and Vegetables

Meat Stew with Beer, Mushrooms and Vegetables

Meat stewed with mushrooms and vegetables in beer. It works good for dinner, left overs can be reheated for lunch. Boiled potato side dishes will go good with such meat.

I used beef for this recipe, but it will work good with either pork or beef. Tomato paste or canned tomatoes can be used instead of fresh tomatoes.

Amount of beer to use for this recipe will depend on the size of the pot you use, it should be enough to cover meat completely while cooking.
