    I am looking for simple recipes for 1-2 people, that preserve well as leftovers and don't take too much time to fix.
    For example, I have a basic meat sauce of ground beef, onions, mushrooms, Newman's sauce, and diced Rotel. It goes with spaghetti, lasagna, etc., and can be frozen in quantity.
    Saturday, wild chef that I am, I added some cooked rice to this sauce and stuffed some large green bell peppers...baked for 15 minutes and voila, had a nice little dinner that took less than an hour to make, and would be worthy of company the next time I want to cook for someone.
    Suggestions?

    What are you looking for? I've actually taken up cooking some since I got out of college, so I've got recipes all over the place.
    Anything in particular? I have tons of recipes for Italian food (gotta please the woman, she's almost exclusive to Italian food)

    Anything and everything...Italian is good. I've even been looking for an excuse to upgrade the Weber to a gas grill.

    how about a pork loin? add some corn and mashed potatoes and yer set.
    take a pork tenderloin, shake lemon pepper all over it, shove a meat thermometer in it, toss it in the oven at 325 until it's done according to the thermometer.
    peel the potatoes, boil them until they're soft, mix them with 8 oz of sour cream and 1 package of cream cheese.
    make the gravy and you're done

    There's always char chicken and fire rice, a staple around here.
    Chicken thighs or legs (thighs catch on fire easier) bbq'd 20 minutes. If you prefer less charcoal on your food, don't let it catch on fire.
    1 cup rice, 1/2 big can diced tomatoes, 1 cup water, Patak's curry paste to taste (I like tandoori, vindaloo or hot curry, about a tablespoon will blow the roof of your mouth off, less adds nice flavor and zing).
    Bring to boil, cover and simmer 20 minutes. Dinner's ready when the fire department shows up.
    -------------------------
    For meat sauce, sautee ground beef in a tablespoon tobasco sauce and balsamic vinegar before adding chopped onion and green pepper. Then add canned diced tomatos and Hunt's tomato sauce (Italian or garlic), diced garlic (lots!), oregano, s&p to taste. Simmer for a while. Can be converted to chili by adding kidney beans and hot sauces to your tolerance...

    Good suggestions, everyone!
    I actually do a decent chili, and the weather is getting to be such that it's time to make some.

    Bo Go Ki, it's fast, it's nummy
    In the morning, take thin sliced beef (here in Philly I use cheesesteak meat), and coat the bottom of a tupperwear container with about 1/8" of soy sauce. Add ginger, and garlic and onion powder to this (I measure by eye, a bit and 2 dashes [​IMG]. Slice up about 3 scallions, throw it in. Close the container and shake to coat the meat, and let marinate at least 2-3 hours.
    Throw it in a pan, and cook till the meat is brown, serve with rice.

    Best Recipe for Roast ...
    1 1/2 Lb Black Angus Roast
    1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
    1 Can Golden Mushroom Soup
    4 - 5 cloves of garlic ... peeled and smashed slightly
    1 Package Dry Onion Soup ...
    Mix the soups & garlic in a slow cooker/crock pot ...
    Season the Roast with Salt & Pepper ...
    Brown the Roast in a pan with about 2 Tbs olive oil for about 3-4 mins per side
    remove the roast from a pan and pour about 1/2 cup red wine in the pan for deglazing ...
    After the pan is deglazed pour this into the slow cooker and cook the roast for about 3 hours ...
    In a seperate pan cut onions, carrots, and potatoes into big pieces ... I usually just cut everything in half ... Put these in an oven and allow to cook for about 1 1/2 hours ...
    Add them to the slow cooker after the roast has been in for about 3 hours ... Slow Cook another 1/2 hour ...
    Remove the meat and vegetables ...
    The remaining liquid can be thickened with a little corn starch and used as Gravy ... Some may think it doesn't need to be thickened ...
    For those who do not use corn starch on a regular basis do not just pour some into the gravy ... mix it with cold water at first and then pour it in ... otherwise it'll just become a lumpy mess ...
    I tell you ... You will never eat a roast another way if you try this ...

    Great marinade for grilled meats ...
    3 Tbs Olive Oil
    1 tsp Lawrey's Garlic Salt w/ parsley(I think this is Lawrey's ... It's easy to find in your spice section the lid is green)
    1 tsp Lawrey's Season Salt w/ Cracked Black Pepper
    1 Tbs Worcesteshire Sauce (Lea Perrins Pers Fav)
    Punch of Dark Mustard
    Works great for steak, chicken, pork, wolf, dog ... You name it ... It makes it taste better ...
    And you can always 'blaze' it up a few steps w/ some Tabasco or Louisiana Hot

    And don't forget Emeril's smug mug on:

    Looks like a pretty good recipe for oyster dressing.
