Tenderloin (sometimes called filet mignon) is the king of steaks. It's lean, tender, can add any wanted flavor to it and it will absorb it all, and you can cut it with a butter knife. This is expensive though so only cook this once in a while.
These lamb kebabs have 6 different kinds of spices; the first time I smelled them I knew immediately that I had to find the recipe. The most affordable way to purchase the spices is in bulk at either a health food store or an Asian or Middle-Eastern market. They are very good!
Fresh oysters are cooked open face on the grill with a rich seasoned butter. This is concoction was developed by my buddy and I during a block party. We had people standing in line. Be sure to use leather gloves when shucking hot oysters. Sounds like a pain, but well worth the work.
This hearty casserole features ground beef, onion, green pepper, tomatoes and mushrooms simmered into a sauce to layer with cooked spaghetti, Cheddar cheese and cream of mushroom soup. Top with Parmesan and bake for a people-pleasing main dish.
