It bakes for 3 hours giving you enough time to nap, do errands/chores, and catch up on other things. It is delicious with a side of creamy mashed potatoes and/or cheesy scalloped potatoes. My husband who is a meat lover enjoyed these so much that I made these 3 times in a week’s time! Yes, insane right? It is tangy, slightly sweet and super tender. Many recipes call for ketchup and BBQ sauce for slow-cooked beef short ribs. I used a common pantry staple of mine; pomegranate molasses.…

    Shish Barak

    These Middle Eastern homemade meat-stuffed dumplings are to die for! They are the ultimate comfort food and every minute that goes into making these are well worth it. Shish Barak can be considered the ravioli of Arabic cuisine; they look just like them except the stuffing must be minced meat and the sauce it is cooked in is yogurt-based to be considered traditional. Often, ground beef or lamb or even a mixture is used to make this hearty meal. Making the filling and the dough is the easiest part. It is the tedious repetition of making the dumplings by hand. First, you have to lay the dough flat and then…

One of the dishes we enjoyed was Lomo Saltado. I never had anything like it before and it just intrigued me. I devoured my plate. Lomo Saltado itself is saucy and full of textures and flavors.
