Book Review: Meat & Potatoes

I would say that anyone who knows me, knows I’m a big fan of meat!  And while beef probably rates #1 for me, I rotate through meat of all kinds with our dinner menu.  I’m always looking for new ways to cook up roasts and steaks from the 1/4 cow we purchase every year, so when I got the chance to look over & review the book Meat & Potatoes by Rahm Fama, I jumped at the chance!

The book did not disappoint either!  The author has chapters for Beef, Pork, Chicken/Turkey, Lamb & Game meat as well as some extra one pot recipes.  Each chapter begins with the basics of buying, storing, and cooking that specific meat.  That is followed up with numerous mouth watering recipes.  And while the meat certainly takes the center stage, I was almost equally excited by the various side dishes he included to go with them!  While many were not “strict” paleo, a good variety were, and many of the rest were gluten free (or you could possibly tweak them to be).  I loved his ample use of parsnips and sweet potatoes (two favs of mine!)

One meal we all loved was the Pork Adovada (a slow cooker recipe!  bonus!) with spanish rice.  Rice is a sometimes food for me as I tolerate it well overall.  His recipe for both the pork and the rice were fantastic!  The entire family loved this meal.

I have a list of recipes I can’t wait to try yet from this book like the Grilled Pork T-Bone with Grilled Balsamic Red Onions and the Pot Roast with Horseradish Mashed Parsnips & Potatoes.  Yum….and now I’m hungry!  I should rethink writing tasty food book reviews when its getting closer to dinner time. 😉  I hope you’ll check out this book and let me know what you think!
