My favorite cut of beef is the rib eye. The marbling throughout the meat provides an unbeatable flavor and juicy tenderness. I am a cast iron junkie. I use it to make a lot of my dishes, and the best use of it all is to make my steak. You can use any heavy skillet

Cacciatore in Italian means “hunter-style”. Basically if a hunter came home empty-handed, his wife would kill a chicken for the meal instead. I use my slow cooker a lot, a LOT, coz its so easy to throw things in before going to bed with a wonderful aroma waking me up in the morning. I have
