The weather is slowly shifting to cooler days and nights. Hooray!
For those of us who are getting tired of their own cooking (hand in the air), it can be a bit of a battle between easy and boring in the kitchen.
I’ll be honest; I’ve had a bit too much chicken lately. Which is saying a lot for me.
Thanks to a market that had a better stock in the meat department, I snagged a family pack of pork shoulder steaks. I added some baking potatoes and some ground beef and we are in for some seriously non-chicken good food!
For those who don’t know, one of my Top Five Favorites is a simple, easy and fabulous roast.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Take out your broiler pan – or if you don’t have one, line a rimmed baking sheet with foil – spray with non-stick cooking spray. Put the steaks on the pan, season with salt, pepper, garlic and dried sage.
Roast for 45 minutes, turn over and season. Roast for at least another 30 minutes. You are looking for a rich caramel color on the meat.
Add some baking potatoes at the beginning of the roast and they will all be done at the same time.
I roasted 2 of the 4 steaks in the pack and put the other 2 in the freezer.
As for the ground beef, I’ve got my eye on a meatloaf recipe and am debating between mashed potatoes or more baked potatoes. I bought enough spuds I could do both.
Easy. Flavorful. Wonderful comfort food. Yum!
