Veal Rolls with Feta Cheese, Garlic and OlivesApril 20th, 2013 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This recipe is not so budgety, prices for veal in US are somewhat high, but I like veal meat: it is lean and tender.
To reduce cost a bit, another part of veal can be substituted for scallopini here, pieces should be sliced thin, beef will do too but may need to be cooked longer to be tender.
Use any kind of white wine you like, it can be also served later with the course.
Jellied Meat (Kholodets)November 10th, 2012 in Appetizers & Snacks, Beef, Chicken, Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina
Another traditional dish of various east and west european cuisines (russian, ukrainian, polish, and many others): jellied meat, also knows as kholodets, studen, dragli, aspic, and many other names.
Main ingredient to successful preparation of jellied meat is using meat with cartilages (hocks, years, tails, etc), without these broth will not jelly (pig or chicken skin helps too).
If broth doesn’t jelly (too less cartilages used) you can dissolve a bit of gelatin in the broth before pouring it to the dish. I don’t like using gelatin, but it can be a fail-safe mechanism if you want to make the dish is ready in time for an important event.
Steaks Marinated in Onion JuiceSeptember 1st, 2012 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
A simple recipe to marinate steaks for a cookout: onion juice tenderizes meat without draining its own juices and no need to clean onions themselves as if you would need to do when marinating meat with chopped onions.
I used only salt and ground black pepper as seasonings this time, but other spices can be used to your taste: bay leaf, allspice, paprika, whole peppercorns, whatever you like.
Any meat cut will work here, more lean meats may require more time for marinating.
Russian Meat Dumplings (Pelmeni)June 30th, 2012 in Beef, Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina
Pelmeni (russian meat dumplings) is one of the dishes which take a lot of time to make.
However once done, you can freeze them up for future use, which is perfect for times when you are short on time and need to get something fast to eat.
And just a hint, it goes faster if you are not assembling them alone.
You can use already ground meat, or grind meat yourself and if you choose to do so – grind onions together with meat.
Veal with Mushrooms and CarrotsMay 19th, 2012 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This is a recipe for tender veal stewed with mushrooms, carrots and pickled cucumbers in dry red wine and tomato sauce.
If you are searching for some main dish for special occasion or romantic dinner check it out.
In my opinion mashed potatoes are the best side dish for this main dish, if you are looking for one.
Veal Roast with Pureed Vegetable SauceMarch 3rd, 2012 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
If you are looking for a dinner roast recipe, this one is for you: juicy homemade veal roast with pureed sauce prepared from carrots, onions and tomatoes stewed in dry red wine and meat juices.
Pureeing vegetables makes sauce more homogeneous (and looking and tasting more like a sauce), however you can also pour cooked meat with cooked vegetable mix without pureeing it, that may save you some time if needed.
Meat roasted this way tastes great served straight from the oven as well as cooled down.
Ground Beef and Potato CasseroleFebruary 18th, 2012 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Taste of this dish reminds me of lasagna, with the difference of that it doesn’t include neither noodles nor cheese. It also requires much less time to cook than classic lasagna.
Meat sauce prepared of ground beef or veal (or mix of these) with onions, tomatoes and fresh parsley is juicy and very tasty. Bechamel souffle gives it nice hint in both taste and presentation.
Did I mention that this recipe is great for some special occasion?..
