Ordered a Picanha cut roast of Argentine Angus. I have been hearing and reading about them for years and found a source that is not too expensive. Picanha is not something offered around here. People familiar with them swear it is the best cut for a charcoal grill.
Folks I know who visited Argentina tell me their beef is mighty good. Not that we need a foreign source of beef but in the interests of broadening the mind and being a good neighbor.....
Didn't have a chance to post last night when I made this for supper, but I had it for lunch too... so I guess now is as good a time as any. Chicken and dumplings as my Mom called it, though it's technically chicken and biscuits I guess. Her version was just cream of chicken soup, shredded boiled chicken, and frozen veggies with some Bisquick biscuit mix dropped into the baking dish. Throw it in the oven, and voila, a hearty, simple winter meal.
I go a bit more fancy. Onion, carrots, celery sauteed with butter and garlic. Add in shredded rotisserie chicken, fresh ground pepper, peas, and cream of chicken soup. Simmer while prepping the biscuit mix. Bisquick, Parmesan cheese, parsley. Toss the mix into the baking dish, dollop the biscuits on top, bake 40 mins. Not a whole lot different, but fresh veggies and the fancied up biscuits make all the difference in my opinion. Either way, a rich, hearty cool weather meal.
