10. Chicken Marsala - This dish is an Italian-American classic that only gets better when you put a slow cooker spin on it. Using the finest white meat chicken breast possible, the chefs have added mushrooms, onions, and herbs that are marinated and cooked in a Marsala wine sauce. This tasty treat includes and is completed with a scrumptious white rice side.
9. Barbecue Pulled Pork - The chef selects a choice pork roast which is simmered until it's fork tender in a sweet, southern, BBQ-style sauce. By simply using 2 forks to pull the meat apart, everything will fall into place providing you with the best barbecue pork sandwich. This classic will become your family's favorite.
8. Sausage Scallopini - This sausage scallopini dish has been in the owner's family for years, being passed down through the generations. The dish starts out with lots of savory Italian sausage smothered in red and green peppers and onions combined with a made-from-scratch red sauce that is simmered all day
7. Veggie White Bean Chili - This vegan dish provides a wonderful chili by simmering up a satisfying yet robust chili flavor with little fat which can be served to your family or party featuring a low-calorie chili that will make you forget it's even vegetarian.
6. New Orleans Braised Beef - This piece is cooked to perfection. Starting with an epic blackening of a USDA choice bottom round roast, it is then braised in an authentic New Orleans Etouffee sauce. This is what we call “gravy with an attitude!”
5. Beef Burgundy - This tender cooked beef shares the pot with mushrooms and carrots which are simmered in a traditional red wine sauce. This dish is served over authentic egg noodles (included in the meal kit.)
4. Chicken Pot Pie Stew - This is a chicken pot pie without the crust. Like much excellent chicken pot pie, the chicken is tender and is stewed with carrots, corn, peas, and potatoes using a country herb blend in a savory sauce. We are told that many people add Pillsbury dough to the top of the meal to make the crust. Similarly, others drop in the Pillsbury dough and make dumplings.
3. Mexican Chicken Fiesta - A tender serving of strips of chicken breast simmered in a light chili sauce with green peppers, onions, sweet corn, and beans which can serve as a chili. Others like to serve it over rice, make tacos or nachos.
2. Jambalaya - This delicious meal is the flagship of Cajun cuisine offering an intoxicating combination of andouille sausage chicken, shrimp, and ham all simmered in a delicious red Creole sauce.
1. Philly Cheesesteak Dip - This unique and delicious meal is always in the top three of our bestselling foods. We simply take Philly steak, green peppers, onions, and a sophisticated blend of three artesian kinds of cheese. We take the Philly cheesesteak from the rolL and now put it in the dipping bowl. We also love this item so much because we are a Philly-area company!
