Pulled Chuck Roast with Stewed Tomatoes, Onions, and Spinach

Pulled Chuck Roast with Stewed Tomatoes, Onions, and Spinach (Serves 1-2) Rainy weather ruined a lot of tomatoes over the past month, but I came home from the farm Saturday with a nice collection of heirloom varieties.

For breakfast the next day I had scrambled eggs and sliced tomatoes with a side of kimchi...

Four-Hour Pot Roast over Wilted Greens

Four-Hour Pot Roast over Wilted Greens

Four-Hour Pot Roast over Wilted Greens (Serves 6-8) I forgot to start a roast in the slow cooker before I went to church on Sunday. I realized my mistake when I got home, but rather than going out to buy some ground beef or a steak, I decided to cook a roast in the oven and get it done in three or four hours. Now this was an act of faith in two ways. I had not roasted meat in the oven in several years and my roast was frozen. I wasn’t...

Slow Cooker Beef in Tomato-Poblano Salsa

Beef in Tomato-Poblano Salsa (Serves 6-8) Deborah Schneider’s recipe for Pollo en Salsa in The Mexican Slow Cooker (available in my online Store) inspired my Beef in Tomato-Poblano Salsa.

Pulled Roast Beef with Scalloped Turnips

Pulled Roast Beef with Scalloped Turnips

Pulled Roast Beef with Scalloped Turnips (Serves 1-2) I have not done anything new in the kitchen for months. I have cooked three times per day and enjoyed many great meals, but all of them have been established standards or extensions of established standards. Until today, that is, when I made scalloped turnips with pulled roast beef. My experiment with thinly sliced turnips, ghee, and spices turned out to be the best thing I have eaten in...

Slow Cooker Roast Beef with Smoked Jalapeno Sauerkraut

Slow Cooker Roast Beef with Smoked Jalapeno Sauerkraut (Serves 1) Smoked Jalapeno Sauerkraut is the most amazing food I’ve found in a long time.

This recipe does not really add anything new to my collection, but I wanted you to know how good the Smoked Jalapeno is. So good! Prep and Cook Time: 5...

Slow Cooker Brisket with Kale, Chard, Onions, and Dried Cranberries

Slow Cooker Brisket with Kale, Chard, Onions, and Dried Cranberries Brisket is often braised as a pot roast and served at Rosh Hashannah, Passover, and Sabbath in traditional Jewish cooking according to Wikipedia. Maybe I had brisket when my wife and I ate with a rabbi friend and his family several years ago at Passover. That was before I paid any attention to food, so I just don’t know. But I know about brisket now because I bought...

Chopped Apples and Pumpkin Puree with Pulled Roast Beef

Chopped Apples and Pumpkin Puree with Pulled Roast Beef (Serves 3-4) I don’t remember who told me about cooking pumpkin puree with chopped apple, but it is a great idea.
