A savory pot roast seasoned with fresh herbs and garlic. This old-time comfort food is easy to make and can be enjoyed any time of year. The fresh herbs really make this dish special. If you don't have fresh herbs, you can substitute dried herbs. Just use about one-third the amount of dried.
When you finish cooking the pot roast, save the braising liquid to make a savory gravy to accompany the roast.
This recipe of cider braised pork tenderloin with apples is a one-pot-meal of tender pork, apples and a savory sauce made from the braising liquid. It is perfect for a day when you have little time to cook and a lot of chores to do as you just put it together and let the oven do the rest.

This Dutch oven whole roasted chicken is moist, juicy, and tender. It makes a full meal with carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, and a savory sauce. Roasting the chicken slowly in a Dutch oven makes a tender, juicy chicken that gets perfectly browned.
We added the vegetables after the chicken had time to roast in the oven a bit. If you prefer to have super soft vegetables, you can add them in the beginning.
Mussels are among the most flavorful ‘fruits of the sea’ and these Lemongrass-Coconut Steamed Mussels are plump, succulent and delicious. They are steamed in an awesome Asian-style broth of lemongrass, coconut milk and Thai basil. Serve with lime wedges and crusty, grilled or toasted sourdough bread.
Slow-Roasted Lamb Shoulder with Root Vegetables is a classic Irish feast. The lamb shoulder is moist and tender after a long, slow roasting and the vegetables are cooked to perfection. Serve with a sauce made from the intensely flavorful pan juices

This easy Sheet Pan Chicken Fajita Bowl is a twist on Tex-Mex fajita. Zesty marinated chicken strips, red and green bell peppers and thick-cut onion rings roasted on a sheet pan. Served in a bowl with salad greens and a simple dressing rather than wrapped in a tortilla.
Brined and perfectly seared, juicy, pork chops and earthy mushrooms team up for some serious flavor. The pork chops are cooked to a rosy-pink which guarantees tender, juicy chops every time!

Salisbury Steak is an old-time comfort classic that is gaining in popularity again! Lean ground beef gets a flavor boost from a mix of onion, garlic, herbs and spices. The beef is shaped into patty “steaks”, seared briefly, then finished cooking in a rich, umami-packed mushroom gravy.
We are starting with dried red beans and making this pot of chili beans from scratch.
This recipe has a nice bit of heat to it from the spices and a chipotle pepper but it is not so hot that it distorts the flavors of the rest of the dish. There is a generous amount of lean ground beef which, with the vegetables and savory herbs all lend flavor to the beans.
An easy one-pot dinner of roast chicken, carrots, parsnips, potatoes, garlic and herbs. The chicken is crisp on the outside, juicy and flavorful. The vegetables are roasted perfectly in the chicken drippings.
