Skirt steak has a tremendously deep and rich beef flavor, and the marinade really provides extra depth of flavor with the combination of soy sauce and vinegar. This is best when marinated for at least 8 hours, or overnight preferably.

I tend to make filet mignon for special occasions.  I prefer a simple preparation with a highly flavored herb butter sauce for the best result.  The herb butter sauce can be prepared in advance and used when needed.

Turkey Meatballs

This recipe uses mild ground turkey paired with the flavors of sweet and hot Italian sausage.  This is delicious served with a traditional marinara sauce.  I have also made these into small meatballs (using a melon ball scoop)….and added these meatballs into soup recipes.
