Easy Dinner Recipes For Beginners

Beginners Options for Dinner Recipes

Not everyone is born with great talent as a cook. Sometimes, it requires long years of practice to even make your cooking edible. But don’t worry, you can always come up with good and tasty foods (despite their simplicity) if you really put your heart into it. Remember, cooking requires love and good mood too. Based on my own experience, when you are cooking while in a bad mood, there won’t be any hope left for your cooking.

The Cooking Skills

Only some lucky people are endowed with great cooking ability. For most of us, the cooking skills don’t come easily or naturally. It is common when you have to go through trial and error period to even come up with one successful result. Sometimes you have to waste ingredients to finally come up with the right result. Those experiences are valuable and they will teach you how to produce edible results. After all, the gruesome experiences are worthy, as you can make natural and safe consumptions.

Some of the Simple Recipes

Remember, producing edible and tasty foods doesn’t always require long hours of preparation or complicated work. With simple and easy to find ingredients, you can really make memorable foods that will be the favorite of your family. These are some of the great easy dinner recipes for beginners to try.

First, you can try making pot roast and root vegetables as the accompaniment. This meal is delicious and hearty, and you certainly have a fun time cooking it. Simply put a chuck roast (it is recommended to use a 4 lb one) inside a slow cooker. Let it cook for around 10 hours. Before cooking it, make sure to smear it with salt and pepper. Then sear it with high heat so each side will turn brown. Put the roast with chopped potatoes, carrots, onion, and celery, along with a cup of water into the slow cooker. Another great idea is to make homemade gravy with flour or cornstarch, or instant packet.

Garlic Bread and Spaghetti

This meal is basically simple and fast, but pasta needs a little bit of skill so it will cook perfectly. Mix a tablespoon of salt with water, and let it boil. Add the spaghetti and make sure it reaches ‘al dente’ state, which means that it is tender enough, but it is not mushy. While the pasta cooks, you can prepare pasta sauce. You can use the instant one although the homemade version is better. But then again, it is okay for beginners to use the instant option.

Making the garlic bread is easy. First, combine dried Italian herbs, garlic powder, and a half stick of butter. Mix them well. Cut fresh French bread and spread the mixture evenly on both sides. You can wrap them up in aluminum foil and put them into the oven. Make sure that the bread turns golden brownish before you turn the oven off.

When the pasta cooks well, drain it, mix it with the sauce, and serve. Serve the spaghetti with the garlic bread. Bon appetite!
