Recipe: West Indian Chili Con Carne

At the time of the publication of the Lobels’ cookbook MEAT by the Lobels in 1971, Jawn A. Sandifer was a Justice of the Supreme Court of the State of New York and was an excellent judge of fine cooking. Mrs. Sandifer was a talented cook, and this was one of the couple’s favorite recipes.

Since October is National Chili Month, we wanted to share this tasty, time-tested recipe.

Recipe: Tuscan-Style Meat Loaf with White Wine-Vegetable Sauce

Anyone who has traveled and eaten in Tuscany knows that meat loaves in all their glory are a big deal. Tuscan cooks usually made loaves with finely ground leftover braised or roasted meats.

While many of Tuscany’s offerings still are made from cooked meats, others, such as this time-honored loaf, are made from ground raw meat.

Culinary DIY: Gravy

Every fluffy mashed, crunchy roasted, crispy fried, or creamy boiled potato cries out for a bath of concentrated richness of pan juices treated right.

Leftover gravy need never go to waste. So versatile, you’ll run out of gravy before you run out of ways to incorporate it into other recipes—from pot pies, hot sandwiches, and rice dishes to a topping for breakfast hash or Benedict-style egg entrees.

But don’t worry, you can always make more.

Welcome Fall: Discover the Family-Size Version of your Favorite Steak

Behind every great steak, chop, or cutlet, there’s an equally great roast.

And at this time of year, summertime grilling of individual cuts gives way to indoor preparation of larger meals for family and entertaining during the fall and winter.

So, if you want a sure-fire hit, take a look at where your grilling favorites come from and you’ll have a roast to please every palate.

For example, filet mignon are individual steaks cut from a whole tenderloin roast, or more specifically from the center of the tenderloin, called the chateaubriand. Strip steaks come from a whole shell, also called a strip-loin. Rib steaks come from the whole rib.

So chances are, if you have a favorite steak or chop, the roast from which it originates will likely become your favorite roast as well.

Culinary DIY: Dumplings

Dumplings are one half of the quintessential comfort food: chicken and dumplings. There’s a reason we’ve already written about it in our Culinary Classic: Chicken and Dumplings. Sure, you can have chicken soup without dumplings and you can certainly enjoy it that way, but once you add dumplings to soup, you really take it to the next level.
