When you think of Scandinavian food, you probably think of Swedish meatballs (and Ikea!). This flavorful and simple dish is by far one of the most popular to come out of Sweden (pickled herring just never took off in quite the same way). The process of how to make Swedish meatballs isn't really all that different from making any other type of meatballs. We suspect it's their miniature size as well as the lingonberry jam and gravy -- giving the dish a perfect sweet-savory balance -- that has made Swedish meatballs such a huge hit in this country.

Contrary to popular belief, learning how to make oven-cooked prime rib isn't difficult at all. Originally served at English holiday feasts, the traditional accompaniment was Yorkshire pudding and gravy. Today, prime rib is just as often served with roasted potatoes and carrots cooked in the same pan and basted with the drippings. Prime rib is the choicest cut of beef, imbued with a rich flavor. It does have more fat and cholesterol than other cuts of beef, but the flavor is so good that meat lovers are often willing to make the trade off (at least once in a while).

Why would you want to know how to make chicken fried steak (also know as country fried steak)? First, almost everything is more delicious when it's fried, but more importantly, this is a great trick for making a tough piece of beef more tender and flavorful. Where does the "chicken" part come in? The name nods to both the herb coating that the meat is dredged in (made with flour or breadcrumbs) -- similar to the batter used for fried chicken -- and the fact that it's fried to golden brown, just like chicken. The dish is usually made with round steak (also known as cube steak once it's been tenderized by a butcher).
In the 1950s, almost everyone's mother or grandmother knew how to make dumplings. Their popularity may have had to do with the way the feathery light, steamed or boiled dough balls helped to extend soups and stews. You could feed more people if you added dumplings to your stew, so they were common on American tables. Stretching your food dollars is still a good idea, but nowadays, dumplings are more likely to be enjoyed as the homey comfort food of a simpler time.
