There's Just Something About Meat and Potatoes
Meat and potatoes — the phrase conjures up some memorable meals, doesn't it? Dinner just isn't dinner for many people unless it includes some combination of these two foods.
These easy and hearty recipes all use beef and pork along with potatoes in different forms. Some can be made at the last minute while others take a little time. All of them are perfect for cold weather and they'll satisfy any appetite. You can substitute your favorite meats, cheese, spices, herbs and vegetables for the... ones in these recipes to make them your own.
Be sure to cook the meats to the proper internal temperature for food safety reasons. I always use a Thermapen thermometer for best results. Enjoy these hearty recipes!Continue to 2 of 13 below.
