My FI is a vegetarian, and I consider myself a part-time vegetarian. We do not eat meat in our home because it’s just so much easier to cook for two when it’s the same dish. However, when I visit family, I’ll treat myself to whatever they make for dinner (and most of the time it’s meaty).
That said, he’s going out of town for a week- Leaving my sister (who lives with us) and myself to eat whatever we want.
My head is swimming with ideas for boiled dinner (ham, potatoes, carrots, and cabbage), beef roast, baked chicken dinners, etc, etc.
I’d love it if you’d share your favorite recipes with me so I can make hearty, meat-filled dinners for the week he’s gone!

Make this chili recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/guy-fieri/dragons-breath-chili-recipe/index.html
It is delicious, has really good flavor, and is really meaty (boneless chuck, ground beef, and italian sausage).

I would toss a giant chuck roast in a crock pot with a can of san marzanos, some chipotles, a can of soda, lots of garlic, some salt and pepper and some brown sugar. Let it cook for eight hours. After, take it out, cut it into long strips and shred it. Discard any fat. Toss the meat back in the juice, let it cook on low for an hour longer. Then, eat all the pulled beef your little heart can handle. On sandwiches, on salads, with eggs, in tortillas, meat it up. Hahaha. I crack myself up. Get it (m)eat it up? I’m so punny!

I have a recipe like the one above. Just put the roast in a crock pot, poke some garlic cloves into slits in the top, and pour a jar of pepperoncinis over it. Maybe put an onion in there. Crock pot it up for 8 or 9 hours then shred it, and put it on a sandwich with some cheese.

I LOVE Paula Deen’s Tuscan carbonara (recipe on her site). Also fried catfish or tilapia. Not super meaty but I love fish.

- Homemade meatballs, or meat sauce, or sausages in pasta sauce
- Tacos with chicken or beef
- Roast chicken or turkey dinner with all the fixins
- Good cut of steak
- Cheeseburger sliders
- Spicy sausage with alfredo sauce & veggies
- Chicken or pork stir-fry
One of my favorite recipes:
Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts.
This recipe with mayo or this recipe with sour cream (both from AllRecipes.com).
Pound boneless chicken breasts until even. Cut a pocket into the side of the breast but don’t cut all the way through, and don’t cut either end. (Think of it like a pita pocket.) Fill the pocket with a mix of feta cheese, mayo, spinach, and spices (I like spicy hot flavors or garlic). Place the stuffed breasts in a casserole dish.
I don’t wrap the chicken in bacon. I eliminate the bacon altogether.
To jazz it up even further I will saute some mushrooms in a frying pan and then de-glaze the pan with red wine. Add a can of cream of mushroom soup and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Either pour the red wine mushroom sauce over the cooked chicken and serve, or serve the red wine mushroom sauce in a gravy boat on the side so guests can add their own sauce if they choose.

@Mrs.KMM: I loooove chili, so I’ll definitely check that recipe out. Thanks!
@artichokey: That sounds SO great. I’m going to make that for sure. Also, hahahaha at your pun. I love it. 🙂
@Gemstone: I’m not a huge fan of ribs, but I do love BBQ. My gears are turning now… Maybe I’ll slap some BBQ sauce on some of the pulled beef @artichokey: described.
@redheadem: I love fish too! I’ll check out the carbonara recipe and look up a few fish recipes. I’ve never attempted to cook fish.
Thanks everyone! Keep ’em coming! 🙂
