    Substitute plain Greek yogurt for sour cream or butter.
    Sour cream adds a rich creamy flavor that’s ... Read More

  • Redskins-Giants Tailgating Recipe: Grilled Rosemary, Garlic & Lemon Chicken

    Samantha Malone McCormack, Dinner Matters

    We at Dinner Matters hope you had a fun and flavorful Thanksgiving! It's always hard during the holidays to watch everything you eat, and it's especially hard on Thanksgiving Day. If you're like us, you probably enjoyed a bit too much turkey, a bit too much stuffing, and more than a bit too much pumpkin pie. 

    Getting back to healthy eating doesn't have to mean a letdown in taste though. Our Grilled Rosemary, Garlic & Lemon Chicken is a delicious dish that is simple to make and won't add inches to ... Read More

  • Redskins- Panthers Tailgating Recipe: Mesquite Grilled Salmon

    When you hear Carolina, you think barbeque, right? 

    Well, here at Dinner Matters, when we hear Carolina we think…barbeque too! We love a good pig pickin’, slow cooked flavors, and meat falling off the bone. But, we also love the lighter side of barbeque, something packed with flavor, and easy to do.

    Our Mesquite Grilled Salmon fits the bill. Four simple ingredients and five easy steps. We like to pair this with brown rice and French green beans to keep it healthy all the way through!

  • Redskins-Steelers Tailgating Recipe: Flank Steak with Spicy Sweet Coleslaw

    10.26.2012 / Blog Posts Recipes

    Sam Malone McCormack, Dinner Matters

    This week’s game takes us to Pittsburgh – and who can’t help but think about a delicious Primanti Brothers Sandwich! For those who have not had the scrumptious pleasure – imagine your favorite deli sandwich, topped with fries and coleslaw. The complete deal – but maybe just a little filling…

    Our healthy twist on this favorite is a flank steak in a simple, yet flavorful Asian-style marinade, paired with spicy sweet coleslaw. While here at Dinner Matters, we don’t normally make this into a sandwich – we think that the thinly sliced steak, on a soft ... Read More

  • Redskins- Giants Tailgating Recipe: NY Strip Fiorentina

    10.19.2012 / Blog Posts Recipes

    While the beginning of Fall has added a touch of chill to the air, we've been lucky to have a few warmer days to remind us of those last lingering days of late summer when we fired up the grill, enjoyed good food and spent time with great friends. 

    This week, we're keeping it going with our Grilled NY Strip Fiorentina - Aromatic rosemary, sweet balsamic and a little punch of garlic bring a simple grilled steak to new heights. 

    The Fiorentina sauce is easy to prepare ahead of gameday. All you'll need to do is grill your ... Read More

  • Patriots @ Redskins Tailgating Recipe: New England Clam Chowder

    By Danette Segroves, Dinner Matters

    What says New England better than a hot, hearty bowl of clam chowder?

    In our kitchen we use more than six pounds of fresh clams, but the cleaning, shucking and chopping is too much for game day!

    We’ve made this recipe easier by using canned clams – you can buy whole or chopped. If you buy whole, you will need to give them a rough chop.

    This chowder is lighter because we use less bacon and skim milk instead of cream, but it is still hearty and delicious!

  • Jets @ Redskins Tailgating Recipe: Grilled Flank Steak with Cherry-Port Sauce

    12.01.2011 / Blog Posts Recipes

    This week, our tailgating takes us to New York. You are probably expecting a hot dog recipe here… But, I’d like to take us to the Hudson Valley instead… and to an orchard! New York is home to the tart red cherry, the inspiration of this great grilled steak recipe. We use flank steak because it is super lean and takes marinade better than most other steaks. Be sure to slice the steak against the grain and to a slight angle. Medium-Rare is the best way to prepare a flank, but if necessary, you can go as high as ... Read More

  • Redskins-Dallas Tailgating Recipe - Texas Chili!

    11.17.2011 / Blog Posts Recipes

    In Texas, the classic “Bowl of Red” is missing a pretty common chili ingredient… beans! This all-meat chili takes patience, but it is worth the effort. We use less expensive and tougher cuts of meat that braise for 3 – 4 hours. When the chili is ready, the beef is fall-apart tender! Be sure to trim away all the fat on the brisket – no need for it in this recipe. With spicy peppers, tomatoes, and Mexican beer to help brighten up the flavors, you can’t go wrong with this chili. If you are feeding a Redskins-sized appetite, put the chili ... Read More
