Happy New Year!
Weekly cooking thread to start the new year. What was your favorite recipe in 2010? Please share and make it a fellow FReepers favorite recipe for 2011.
What are you making this week? Have a favorite left-over recipe idea for all those roasts and big dinner leftovers? Trying something new, need a new tried and true recipe?
Let's get cooking.
Awesome - looks like an excellent marinade!
BTW, that’s one of your best X00’s.
Thank You Very Much GR but it was my second one today and there is still 7 hours to go. Ask your close relative for the rest of the photos...
I brought these to a Christmas party. Well received! I used Al Fresco brand sausage, but there are other brands - ?Aidan?
SMOKED SAUSAGE BITES
“These sausage bites make a quick and easy appetizer to prepare for a party or get-together. I used chicken and apple sausage, but other smoked sausage would work as well.” (From About.com - Southern Food)
8 ounces chutney, such as apple cranberry chutney, mango chutney, or other fruit chutney
1/2 cup chili sauce
3 packages (12 ounces each, about 12 large links) chicken and apple sausage, cut in 1-inch lengths
2 small onions, halved and sliced
Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker; stir to blend well.
Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours, or on HIGH for 2 to 3 hours.
Serve hot from the slow cooker.
Makes about 60 smoked sausage bites.
Sounds good! The apple and chicken sausages are really good. We get them every time we go to Costco.
though not only is that not my pic. but I also used a mix.... but she was ecstatic... ( : >)

I love marrow. One of my guilty pleasures. This one was off the top of my head this morning. I first ate Osso Bucco when I was a kid. I loved it and always wanted to make it.
So I did. It tasted pretty dang good. Is it a traditional recipe? I have no idea. I am sure I am missing a bay leaf here, a sprig of something there, a spice maybe.
6 beef shanks - both sides salted.
Can of tomato paste
Can of diced tomatoes
1/2 onion chopped
4 celery stalks chopped
1 beef bullion cube, melted down in a little water.
3 carrots chopped
3 cups red wine
Heat dutch oven, add olive oil and brown shanks on both sides. Remove from pot and add celery, onion, carrot. Cook that down for 5-6 minutes, adding salt and pepper.
Add tomato paste, diced tomatoes, stir still smooth. Add shanks back into pot. Cover with wine, bullion and if not fully covered, add water.
Cook the heck out of it. Once at boil, turn it down to simmer and let it go for 3 hours, stirring every now and then. When meat falls off shank bones, it is done. Take the marrow out of the bones and don’t tell anyone.
I serve mine over rice. What I do is strain the veggies over the shanks, take the liquid and cook rice in it. That is rich. Add whatever you want to the rice, or just make rice normally.
Serve it up and enjoy.
If someone has a better recipe for this let me know please.
