Whether it’s a birthday party, a family reunion or even feeding some of our farmhands (who have healthy appetites), brisket is my go-to. It does require some “low and slow” roasting time, but it’s totally worth the wait.
The perfect summertime supper that doesn’t require too much time in the kitchen. Kids enjoy eating anything that involves a skewer.
Let the slow cooker do the work to tenderize sirloin or flank steak for family friendly fajitas.
This ground beef skillet meal won’t heat up your summertime kitchen.
Remove chipotle peppers from can (keeping sauce), discard as many seeds as possible, and chop peppers. In medium bowl combine all ingredients, including chopped peppers and adobo sauce. Place flank steak in zipclose bag and pour marinade over steak. Close…

Every cook makes broth/stock for sauces, gravies, soups and stews. The methods for bone broth are many, but essentially you want to roast and then simmer bones with your choice of vegetables and herbs. This recipe uses 4 pounds of bones, including neck and leg bones. Add a chuck roast to make a meal.
Beef chuck is from the shoulder, a hard-working flavorful muscle that requires long cooking to become tender so the flavor can really be appreciated.
The Frontenac wine grape is a versatile variety that has found a home at the Maize Valley Winery. Relatively new in the wine making world, it bravely stands up to sub zero temperatures and unpredictable winters. Not as bold and dry as a Cabernet but not as sweet as a Concord wine, it earned the label “Middle of the Road” and goes well with grilled meats like this flavorful cut. If there are leftovers, add them to a salad the next day.
