This mushroom pot roast version makes a fabulously rich gravy, so be sure to make some mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles to fully enjoy it.
If you love risotto but don’t have time to babysit the pot by stirring, try this delicious baked shrimp sausage risotto. This meal-in-a-pot is gourmet quality, but is quite easy to make.
Garlic Herb Sirloin Tip Roast is a great alternative to prime rib for cost-conscious families. While it is not quite as tender as prime rib, this cut of beef certainly makes up for it in richer flavor. This easy roasting method does the best job of cooking the roast to the perfect medium-rare doneness without turning the roast into shoe leather.
Chicken, Sausage, and Black Olives makes a deliciously different main dish to shake up your humdrum dinner routine. It may seem like a strange combination, but this is so good! The dish is further enhanced with garlic, sweet bell peppers, sweet onion, mushrooms, and just a hint of licorice flavor from tarragon. Serve over rice for a hearty and tasty meal. Did I mention it is fast and easy to make? It is!
Scampi-Style Chicken is a poultry version of the crowd-pleaser, shrimp scampi. Scampi is normally a shrimp dish, but as with many dishes these days, cooks are stretching the meaning. Chicken takes the place of shrimp in this flavorful scampi-style entree. It is a less expensive option for families, and it works quite well with pasta. This goes together fast!
Pork with Apple Thyme Sauce is a new take on old-fashioned fried pork loin chops. Many of us were raised with applesauce as a condiment for pork dishes. This recipe incorporates a fresh applesauce into the pan gravy with the delicious complementary flavor of thyme.
Chicken Sausage Meatballs will breathe new life into your standard party appetizer go-to list. Ground chicken can be pretty bland, but not in this recipe. Fresh pork sausage, Parmesan cheese, anchovies (you won’t taste them at all!), and Dijon mustard really kick up the flavor. The tangy caper sauce is the perfect complement.
This is a simple dish of chicken simmered with vegetables, sausage, and wine. It is very similar to the Italian cacciatora or hunter’s stew. Some call it “smothered” or stewed chicken due to the moist cooking process. The vegetables add a natural sweetness to the gravy which is amazing over mashed potatoes, noodles or pasta, or rice.
