Cabbage and Meat Rissoles (Lazy Cabbage Roll Patties)January 30th, 2016 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
EnjoyYourCooking already has recipe for Lazy Cabbage Rolls casserole, this recipe variation uses almost the same ingredients, but in form of cabbage and meat patties baked under tomato and sour cream sauce.
Again, they are much easier and faster to prepare comparing to traditional cabbage rolls (this is why they are called “lazy”), but taste is very similar.
These patties constitute complete meal, but some vegetables or salads can be served along as a side dish.
Meat Stew with BeansJanuary 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.
Cabbage Braised with BratwurstJune 2nd, 2012 in Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
I had some bratwurst left from last cookout and instead of sticking it to the freezer, I decided to cook this bachelor food: braised cabbage with brats and tomato paste.
There is not much hassle with meat, cabbage is hard to mess up, just fry all ingredients together and salt to taste.
You can replace brats with any kind of sausage to your taste, even sliced bologna will work.
Diluted tomato paste can be replaced with fresh tomatoes, peeled and pureed, but that is an exercise for an experienced bachelor…
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.
Parmesan Eggplants with Tomato Basil SauceMay 7th, 2011 in Appetizers & Snacks, Main Dishes, No-meat, Sides by Julia Volhina
Eggplants fried in flour and egg coating are good on their own as a no-meat main course, appetizer or snack. But they can also be served as a side dish.
Tomato sauce with basil and garlic is a good addition to fried eggplants; it adds a bit of spiciness to plain taste of eggplants.
And parmesan goes great with that combination too.
Tomato and Basil SauceApril 30th, 2011 in Sauces & Dips & Spreads by Julia Volhina
This light tomato based sauce will add a hint of mediterranean cuisine to any dish.
It goes great with fried or grilled vegetables (e.g. zucchini and eggplants); seafood (mussels and shrimps) and meats; it also can be served as pasta sauce.
Sweet tomatoes are the best fit this recipe. If you prefer to remove seeds, choose pulpy tomatoes, it will be easier.
