I love to eat. . . shocking no? I was checking Kelly’s SUYL schedule (www.kellyskornerblog.com) and noticed that she is doing a food section! Yay! I can join in! Apparently, I was having a blonde moment last week. . . this week is all about main dishes!
I started cooking when I was young, basically standing underneath my mom, granny and my babysitter. I have pictures of me licking the beaters of the mixer from a young age and several Christmases have included a KitchenAid products on my list to Santa.
My favorite main dish to make is a roast. Any will do and it is a great dish to make on the weekends to eat off of throughout the week.
Amy’s Yummy Roast
1 roast with some nice marbling in it (not too much, but just enough to really keep it moist)
1 onion-I prefer Vidalia onions but a sweet one will do, chopped
Salt, pepper and tenderize to taste
Red wine, water and worcestershire sauce, equal parts, I never measure, so my line is halfway up the roast
Sprinkle chopped onions on top and in the liquid
Cover with tinfoil, place in oven at 350 for about three hours
Serve with mash potatoes, corn and green beans. This leaves the roast very tender and easy to pull apart with a fork. I also check it while it is in the oven and top off with my liquid mix if needed. If you are capable of making gravy (I can’t, always lumpy), use the liquid, add a bit more red wine and season to taste.
I think this is one of the first staples I learned how to make and I have played with it ever since.
