“I can’t think of a more perfect dish to make when it’s cold out, and a great way to use up old red wine you might have any open. It can be served with potatoes, or any noodles you have on hand.” — Gerald Addison, Co-Owner and Co-Executive Chef, […]
Hearty, well spiced and literally fall-off-the-bone tender, this recipe for cola de res al mole is pure Mexican comfort food. If you’ve never had oxtail, you’ve been missing out on a super-flavorful and tender cut of meat! Oxtail (which is really the tail of the cow, not an actual […]
Good brisket is often called the Holy Grail of barbecue—an apt description, given how rarely you find good smoked brisket in the wild. I’ve tasted barbecued brisket all over the country, and, while you can certainly find some that’s truly transcendent, the vast majority of the time, it’s a dry, […]
Lasagna in the slow cooker? Oh yes! You’ll start by simmering ground beef, onion, and garlic with tomatoes and oregano. Then you’ll simply layer the mixture into a slow cooker with lasagna noodles and a creamy blend of cheeses. Let the slow cooker do its work all day and […]

A comforting bowl of creamy pinto beans flavored with smoky ham. A winter staple in the Appalachian states. This recipe uses an Instapot but other methods of slow cooking or pressure cooking work just as well.
They’re called swordfish “steaks” (not filets) because when cooked correctly, this fish is as rich, tender, and substantial as filet mignon. Unfortunately, it’s fairly easy to overcook swordfish, unless you’re preparing it with a Sous Vide Precision Cooker. This recipe is about as simple — and quick — as […]
Pork ribs with a crusty bark or rich glaze of sauce and a texture that’s tender yet meaty—and you don’t need a smoker to get them. I was a skeptic at first, but I’m going to say it now: When done properly, ribs cooked sous vide are every bit as […]

This bread, with its mellow tang, is perfect for those who like their sourdough bread noticeably sour, but not mouth-puckeringly so. For extra-sour flavor, add 1/4 teaspoon sour salt (citric acid).
