Overview

Armed with a cast-iron skillet and the best ingredients he can find, meat-loving chef Rahm Fama serves up a fresh take on chuck wagon cuisine for flavorful meals you can enjoy no matter where you are.

Inspired by his early years on a Southwest cattle ranch, he followed his carnivorous curiosity across the country, seeking the choicest cuts and best ways to cook them. There’s nothing like the thrill of throwing a pat of butter in a hot pan and searing a perfect steak, or grilling a pork chop, or braising chicken. Meat and Potatoes presents 52 irresistible and simple meals—one for every week:

• Pepper-Crusted New York Strip Steak, Hand-Cut Fries & Wilted Mustard Greens
• Pan-Seared Pork Tenderloins, Granny Smith Apple Mashed Potatoes & Roasted Fennel Ragu
• Turkey Kabobs, Tzatziki Couscous Salad & Eggplant Caviar
• Lamb Medallions, Sweet Potato Galette & Crusty Fried Green Tomatoes

Here, too, are one-pot recipes, including Shepherd’s Pie Cupcakes and Paella with Pepper Bacon, plus ideas for sandwiches to make with leftover meat. Meals that take less than an hour are highlighted throughout for fast, delicious weeknight options. Rahm’s knowledge about meat and rustic recipes from the range will help you upgrade your dishes, no matter who rides into town.

Meat and Potatoes by Rahm Fama with Beth Dooley I adored this book. My husband and I are both 'meat and potatoes' people and this book was great at helping me find other ways to make the meat and potatoes. I was so excited to be getting this book because meat and potatoes are the main ingredients for most meals. The book itself is exquisitely put together. The cover is inviting and almost makes you instantaneously hungry.  Now, that we've talked about the book as a whole, let's take a look inside. The recipes are separated into six categories: beef, pork, chicken & turkey, lamb, game, and one-pot favorites. Each section has several recipes and the recipes are easy to read and understand. There are definitely more than a few that I can't wait to try, however there are a few that I almost salivate when I see the picture because they look so delicious. One of the ones that makes me want to salivate is the 5-B Burger with Smoked Paprika Parsnip Fries and Asparagus with Mint Hollandaise (p. 35). Now, I'm not a big fan of parsnip of asparagus, but this burger looks so delicious that I'd give the other things a try.   I mean doesn't that look absolutely amazing? This book is wonderful and will really help with not knowing how you want to make your favorite meat and potatoes. My suggestion is that this cookbook should be in everyone's kitchen. It's definitely a keeper for me.

Meat and Potatoes by Rahm Fama is amazing! It’s not just your everyday cookbook. You can definitely make any recipe with just ordinary ingredients right in your kitchen! Stay tuned to find out more about this delicious cookbook! I’ll start like always with the cover. The cover will make your mouth water! It is so appetizing. The backside is just as equally appetizing. The back features four small thumbnails of delicious recipes from this cookbook. I really love the colors and fonts chose for this book on the inside and out. The only thing about the cover I can fault is it isn’t hardcover. I really love my hardcover cookbooks, however, I will most definitely make an exception for this cookbook any day of the year! The cookbook features 52 recipes that are simple, delicious and unique. The photographs of the dishes are very high quality and professional. The photographs will absolutely make you want to cook that dish! One recipe that I am so eager to try out is, Rahm’s Childhood Corn Chip Pie, it looks so beyond delicious and it calls for ordinary ingredients, nothing I can’t purchase at my local store if I didn’t already have them. I love how each food has it’s own section which makes it easier to find what recipe you are looking for. It also features an index at the end of the book. Overall, this cookbook is an awesome one to have in your collection and kitchen. Rahm puts things together that you wouldn’t have thought of yourself. I definitely would recommend to all my friends and family. You need this cookbook in your life! I received this book for free through the Blogging For Books Program in exchange for my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
