Cooking a delicious meal for some people can be a little tricky. Perhaps it’s lack of inspiration, practice, or skill. Cooking with appliances like a Samsung range can make preparing a delicious meal much more convenient.

Some people will tell you that in order to cook or bake properly you should follow the directions. But as any cook knows, it’s not the instructions that help to create a good meal, it’s the range that you use too. When you have a range that cooks evenly at the right temperature, it makes a huge difference in your meal. Uneven baking can lead underdone or overdone food, and you run the risk of burning food if it doesn’t heat correctly. Therefore, a reliable appliance like a Samsung range will help you not only feel like a chef, but also make a delicious meal – such as Italian Roast Beef with Homemade Mac and Cheese.

Italian Roast Beef

Ingredients

  • 6 lbs Cubed Beef
  • 1 1/2 lbs Cubed Pork
  • 2 Cups Chopped Onions
  • 2 Cups Chopped Celery
  • 1/2 Cup Parsley Flakes
  • 1 Large Can Whole Tomatoes
  • 24 oz. Bottle of Ketchup
  • 1/2 tsp Salt Per Pound of Meat
  • Pepper to taste
  • Garlic Powder to Taste

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a large roasting pan. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 5 to 6 hours until meat is tender to shred with a fork. Then, you can enjoy this delicious meat on rolls as sandwiches.

Amazing Homemade Mac And Cheese

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Macaroni
  • 1 stick of Butter
  • 1 medium Onion
  • 2 Cups Whole Milk
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/4 Cup Flour
  • 3 Cups Sharp Cheddar
  • 1 Cup Mozzarella
  • Salt and Pepper To Taste

Directions

Dice up your medium onion, and add that and the stick of butter into a dutch oven. Sauté over medium heat until the onions become translucent and bubbling. Then, while whisking, add the flour. You want to make sure that it forms a smooth paste at the bottom of the pot and then slowly whisk in your milk and heavy cream. Once they are fully incorporated, you should bring your milk mixture up to a simmer in order for the flour to fully thicken the sauce.

Once the mixture has thickened so much that it coats the back of a spoon and it leaves a definite line if you run your finger down through it, you can turn down the heat and add your cheese. After you’ve melted your cheese, add salt and pepper to taste. Let this mixture sit on low while you cook your pasta. Once the macaroni are cooked until al dente or to taste, drain the pasta. Then, mix together your drained pasta with your cheese sauce.

You can enjoy this mac and cheese immediately. Or, if you want to make it even better, you can put it in a buttered 9×13 casserole dish, top it with breadcrumbs, and drizzle those with olive oil. Put it in your 350 degree Samsung oven for 20 minutes, until the top gets crispy. No matter which way you eat it, you’ll be glad you made it.

Now that you’ve made a delicious dinner, it’s time for dessert! A great idea to for your dessert is to make a vanilla sauce. Not only will it taste good, but it is super simple to make.

Vanilla Sauce

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Heavy Cream
  • 1/3 Cup White Sugar
  • 1 Vanilla Bean or 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Optional- 1/4 cup of Butter

Directions

Place all ingredients into a saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Be sure to stir constantly to avoid any scorching. Once at a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to cook, stirring occasionally. After 10 to 15 minutes, the mixture will thicken and can be enjoyed warm or slightly cool.

This sauce is a great pairing with ice cream, fresh fruit, angel food cake, or even pound cake. It is a sweet ending to any meal.

When you are cooking, it’s essential to have a reliable range. The perfect dinner is much more easily achievable when your oven and cooktop cook exactly the way you want and expect it to. With Samsung, you’ll get just that: a range that you can count on. To learn more about your Samsung appliance and how to keep it running smoothly, please contact us.
