Cast-Iron Skillet Prime Rib Roast and Gravy
The cast iron skillet cooking method worked really well. It was simple, gave the outside of the roast the browning needed, and kept the inside so moist and tender with the low, slow roasting. I already had the roast in when I realized I'd forgotten to pick up beef broth, so I had to substitute a package of au just mix and water. But otherwise I followed this pretty closely, just adjusting for the size roast I had.

Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs
This was a very tasty alternative to the way I've made ribs before. The boiling in the seasoned water did add flavor to the meat, and made the ribs very tender. I just took my best guess at the amount of seasoning to use since "10 pork spareribs" could vary greatly in size, and next time I think I'll go a little heavier on the lime. But the technique is very handy.

Beef and Vegetable Stew
This was quite different than the stew I normally make - and I knew going in that it would be since the base was tomato paste. I definitely discovered that I prefer a more gravy-based stew, not the tomato, but that's a matter for my tastebuds, not the recipe. And this stew was actually quite good. The only real change I made was to add some fresh garlic - I can't quite conceive of a stew without it. And I did a mix of peas and corn (mostly because I only had a partial bag of peas left). But I followed the rest of the recipe rather closely. I used a large sprig of freshly picked rosemary and didn't find it overpowering at all. I did wind up adding some salt and pepper toward the end of the simmer time, but again, that's just my tastebuds, and my responsibility as the cook to adjust seasoning to taste.
