Chicken: More Popular Dinner Recipes from Around the World
A simple, Greek chicken dish featuring lemon and oregano. A lovely, mild dish which all members of your family will enjoy. It is gluten-free and paleo compliant and it is quick and easy to prepare and cook. Serve with salad, rice or grilled vegetables.
Aghhh the great taste of Moroccan food. A tagine is simply a stew and, yes, the cooking vessel Moroccans use, has the same name. But, trust me, you don’t need the tagine to cook this quintessential Moroccan dish. It’s gluten free and paleo friendly as well.
Seafood: More Popular Dinner Recipes from Around the World
Laksa is becoming quite well known throughout the world. I’m not sure there is a South East Asian meal I enjoy more than a good laksa. It is easy to make as well. Shrimp, an easy seafood stock base, fresh herbs, vegetables and spices, the crunch of bean shoots and those great Asian greens on top.
Less than 20 minutes from start to finish. Use you favorite pasta noodles for this dish. The cream offsets the smoked salmon beautifully. This classy pasta makes a great mid-week dish.
Beef: More Popular Dinner Recipes from Around the World
Albondigas? Yes, they’re Spanish-style meatballs, and they’re easy and quick to make. This hearty dish features a rich tomato sauce with classic, Spanish flavors. They’re hearty and a great 1-pot dish. Albondigas can also be cooked with ground pork.
Pork: More Popular Dinner Recipes from Around the World
Romanian pork goulash is as traditional in Romania as goulash is in Hungary. Easy to make, this mildly spiced stew will be popular with everyone in the family.
Our North Carolina ribs, with a classic, vinegar-based sauce can be cooked either in the oven or in a smoker, if you have one. Cooked low and slow the the meat just falls off the bone!
Lamb: More Popular Dinner Recipes from Around the World
The exotic flavors of Morocco are on full display in this gluten-free and paleo compliant dish. Lamb and couscous are just the perfect union. The lamb, vegetables and spices simmer away filling your house with gorgeous aromas. And, the Moroccan style couscous is full of interest thanks to the addition of dried fruits, nuts and fresh herbs.
A slow roasted leg of lamb is one of life’s great pleasures in my view. This version has Greek flavorings and is another simple dish to prepare and cook. A lovely dish for a dinner party. Perfect for gluten-free and paleo diets as well.
