Wine-Braised Chuck Roast with Pasta Recipe

Baby Aria's choice of meat, by far, is beef. And the more tender it is, the more she likes it. I really enjoy making one-dish meals for her. Today, I seared boneless beef chuck steaks, then braised them in wine (the alcohol cooks off during the braising process). Once tender, I boiled campanelle pasta and transferred it to the beef pot. The flavorful gravy sneaked into the cavities of the odd-shaped trumpet-like pasta, which made it more fun for Aria to eat.

I flavored the dish wth fresh thyme, clove, parsley, tomato paste. bay leaf, turnips, onions and garlic. The key ingredient, though, is drinking-quality red wine. C'est tout ("that's it!")!

Roast Beef Pot Pie Recipe

As I expected, two people weren't able to finish the 1½ pound pot roast I prepared yesterday. So what to do with the leftovers? Make pot pie, of course! Especially since it's National Pot Pie Month.

I took the leftover beef and gravy and added frozen peas and carrots. I used store-bought puff pastry and made pot pies. The flakiness from the crust and the creamy filling made the most delicious meal. I prepared them in individual metal tins so each person gets more puff pastry. How could anyone resist?

I served the pot pies with whole baby corn. I was able to find some at my local Asian market despite the season (check for Melissa's baby corn brand).

Beef Pot Roast Recipe

I don't know why I don't make this dish more often. It's inexpensive and so good. There are really only two meat eaters in our home, but with baby Aria growing up so fast, I felt she was old enough to try this dish. I used a fairly small cut of beef chuck, seared it to form a crust around the meat, then wrapped it papillote-style in aluminum foil, added beef stock and a few earthy vegetables around it and roasted it for a few hours.

The meat came out fork-tender; no knife was needed. And if you were curious to know if a 17-month-old could enjoy pot roast, well, Aria really liked it. She is not a big meat eater, but she does seem to have a taste for beef.

I served the pot roast with baked potatoes and creamed spinach. That's what I call pure comfort food! 

Note: Check out my beef pot pie recipe using the leftovers the next day.

Prime Rib Roast Recipe Recipe

Prime Rib Roast Recipe

12.01.11 by Jackie

It’s December! Hard to believe there's only one month left in 2011, huh? If you're planning on hosting a holiday dinner, a flavorful prime rib roast might be the centerpiece you’re looking for at your holiday feast. The preparation of the meat is relatively simple and requires no marinating time. The key to success is to measure the internal temperature (135-140 degrees F) to guarantee proper doneness. The cooking time varies and isn't necessarily an indicator of a perfectly cooked prime rib. 



I wanted to give my prime roast rib an Asian flair, so I seasoned it with kaffir lime leaves, miso paste, red chili powder and fresh ginger. I rubbed the meat with the mixture and roasted it until the thermometer indicated the right internal temperature. You could of course add your favorite flavors here, but I think because of the high quality of this cut of meat, you should stick to the old adage that less is more. It's a simple, yet very tasty recipe that ensures a succulent and extremely tender prime rib. I finished the dish by broiling the crust for added crispy, intense flavor. It's hard to mess this one up!



We’ve done several giveaways this year, and they’ve been a lot of fun. I wanted to do something special for December, and the Advent Calendars (Calendrier de l’Avent in French) of my childhood came to mind. Each day, I would tear open the corresponding day on the calendar box and claim a little present (usually a little toy or a chocolate). It was so exciting! I thought we could count down the days in the same manner and showcase some really high quality products. With that in mind, the 25 Days of Giveaway project was born.
