Entrees (Main Meals)


Subscribe to my Newsletter

Entrees are the main event, as it were.  If an appetizer is to whet the appetite, here is where the appetite comes in handy!

Here in the US, it is most common to have a soup or salad prior to the entree course, whereas in Europe it is most common to have the salad after the entree.  Wherever you place it, it is still the main course; the showpiece of the meal.

In this section, I will post recipes that contain meat of some kind.  If you are a vegetarian, there will be lots of recipes for side dishes that would make excellent main courses without meats.  I often eat meals without meat, and these are very hearty and filling, despite lack of meat in the recipe.

There are so many delicious ways to prepare meats; stewed or braised, grilled, broiled or pan fried.  They are worked into great classics like chili, or stew, also, although those recipes will fall into the "Soups and Stews" category.  Meats like chicken and pork are nicely neutral and lend themselves to all sorts of great flavoring options.  Fish or seafood offer an excellent way to lower the overall calories of a dish, while still getting the protein. 

There are many varieties of seafoods I have not tried, and now, sadly, I find I have an allergy to shellfish, so I may never have opportunities for some of them.

Perfect Prime Rib   |   Braised Pork Roast in Green Sauce
My sister and her husband have a sailboat and have sailed all over the Caribbean and out to Nassau. They've had opportunity to both taste and learn to make dishes with Conch, along with some pretty anecdotal stories of learning to get the creature out of its shell! 

Crab legs were one of my most favorite foods in the world at one time.  Once, in Florida on vacation, I ordered a pound of King Crab for dinner at a restaurant. When it came out it was in one piece - one small segment of one huge leg. I cannot imagine the size of the crab that piece of succulence came from! But whether snow crab or king crab, I loved them, and once my daughters and I all sat around and ate crab legs until we were stuffed full, drinking a nice dry white Muscadet de Sevre et Maine, enjoying each others' company, the great crab meat, the wine and giggling from sheer happiness. That memory stays with me strongly as one finely happy moment in time.
