Boliche (Stuffed Beef Roast)

We get pretty adventurous trying to make new recipes in order to find new favorites. This makes a really delicious roast (plenty of leftovers!) but it takes too much time to prepare on a regular week night. 

The well-loved cookbook.  You can tell by the mysterious food stain on the edges of the page.  This is American Home Cooking and it has some pretty Americana classic-type recipes as well as more modern recipes.  What's Americana? Think: a whole section devoted to game and venison as well as the classic meats.

Boliche (or bo-LEESH as we are saying it) is a beef round roast stuffed with a mixture of sauteed pork chorizo, bell peppers, and onion.  It's simmered for a few hours in a tomato sauce and stock and served with artichoke hearts.

My first time making popovers! They're kind of amazing to watch rise in the oven.  Obviously, I have a little to learn about making them because some of them didn't rise in the middle, still tastes amazing though.

And the finished meal: marjoram popovers, boliche, and some caramelized garden carrots to round out the plate.  I don't know if it's because we grew the carrots ourselves, but cooked over medium heat in butter, they come out really sweet and really really tasty.
