Shepherd’s Pie is a meat pie made of ground beef, some vegetables, and mashed potato.
Some say that this pie dish is a variation of Cottage Pie — which is made of minced beef or lamb. Instead of using mashed potatoes, Cottage pie is traditionally made by topping slices of potatoes over the minced meat.The potato arrangement that looked like tiles of a roof might be the reason why it was called such.
This delicous meat pie recipe is worth all the effort. I’m sure that you will enjoy eating this pie dish during anytime of the day.
The temperature here in Chicago dropped drastically over the past weeks. Snow turned into ice, while the wind continues to whistle its frigid tunes. They wouldn’t have called it the windy city for nothing.
While I’m lazily slouching at the couch watching my favorite Food Network shows (Iron Chef America good, but I find Chopped to be more entertaining), I thought of making some beef stew to make myself warm. I’m not sure if I have all the ingredients and I don’t plan to drive on ice. This is the time when online grocery shopping and delivery services such as Peapod come-in handy.
I needed some beef parts such as brisket or sirloin, some onions, tomatoes, a little dried thyme, and I also need to move my lazy bones. Good thing I still all of the needed ingredients in my inventory like a pound of beef brisket, a can of diced tomatoes, some onions, and dried thyme (except moving my lazy bones). I did not need to order groceries online at that point.
Braising is a method wherein meat such as beef is simmered with enough liquid or moisture for a long time. This cooking technique does not only make the meat tender, it also lets the meat release its maximum flavor.
Braised Beef is a very tasty dish that requires minimum effort. For those of you who are just starting to learn how to cook, this is one of the ideal recipes that I can recommend. All you need are the ingredients and some extra time and patience. I’m sure that your family and friends will be impressed with what you’ll be serving them.
So, when your friends say “This dish was really awesome, we have no idea that you can cook”. Tell them “Me neither, I was surprised too. All I did was to imagine that I am a good cook. That book I read about self development and positive thinking really works!” Then give them a wink.

Callos or ox tripe stew is a Filipino-Spanish dish made from ox tripe and veal shanks (ox feet). The tripe and shanks are boiled and simmered until the texture becomes extra tender; this makes eating this dish pleasurable. Different vegetables can also be added but the commonly used are carrots, chick peas (garbanzos), and bell pepper.
I like this dish because of its texture. The extra tender tripe and fat from the ox feet literally melts in your mouth while the luscious taste of chorizo and bacon lingers around – inviting you to try more. Though it looks and sounds enticing (which it does), moderation is still recommended because of the high fat and cholesterol content of this dish. It is good to enjoy food but it is better to enjoy life.

I felt that I needed a quick bite as I drove home from work. Luckily, I was about to pass-by a Panda Express location and decided to grab a box for dinner. I got a 2 entrée plate consisting of Orange Chicken, Beijing Beef, and Chow Mein for sides.
Let’s not talk about Orange chicken and Chow Mein for now because my attention is focused solely on Beijing Beef. However, you might want to check our Orange Chicken recipe post if you want to know more about it. As for the Chow Mein, the closest recipe that we have is the Pancit Canton- which I think is a better alternative.
There isn’t really anything extra-ordinary about the Beijing Beef – but I still like to have it once in a while. The flavor is probably the main reason why I like it. I am a fan of sweet and sour pork and this dish is pretty much similar – that is if you raise it to the next level. You’ll understand what I’m trying to say once you try one. After the first bite, the tangy taste immediately permeates in your mouth leaving you speechless – looking forward to the next bite. Since the flavor is so rich, it is advisable to balance it by having some sides (such as rice or noodles) while munching. The texture is unique compared to the other Chinese beef dishes that I had, so far. It also has the consistency of a fried flank steak but tender when chewed.
Beef with Broccoli is an Asian beef main dish. As the name suggests, this dish is mainly comprised of beef and broccoli combined with different sauces for that delightful Asian flavor.
This simple recipe is so easy to follow. I would suggest though that you use beef sirloin or tenderloin to
ensure that your dish will come-out tender. If in case you don’t have them around and opted for another less tender beef part, it would help if you slice the meat thinly and pound it with a meat pounder.

Beef Pares are cubed beef briskets cooked with different spices and tenderized to perfection. The aroma of this dish alone is really enticing and the flavor is so captivating as if someone is whisphering in your subconcious mind to go and get more.
I was first introduced to this dish in a local Tapsi House in Las Pinas. Back then, this dish is just a new addition to the menu. This captured my attention just right after my first bite and from then on I became a believer. These days, you can buy a complete Beef Pares meal from different eateries (these are Tapsilog joints turned Pares Houses).
I usually have this any time of the day. During my college years, I visit a nearby Goodies Pares near my campus (its the one in Leon Guinto and Quirino in Manila). A definite Pig-Out place for me, sometime I even order extra rice or two with a Pepsi or Coke by my side.
