THE INGREDIENTS

  • 1 small spaghetti squash, cut in half with the seeds removed
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Pinch red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 1 14½-ounce can diced tomatoes (and their juices)
  • 1 15-ounce can pinto (or black beans) beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 scallions, white and light green parts, chopped
  • 2 avocados, pitted and diced, for garnish
  • Shredded Monterey jack cheese, for garnish
  • Limes, for serving

THE STEPS

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F
  2. Rub cut sides of squash with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place in your Stargazer Cast Iron skillet, cut-sides down. Bake until the squash is fork tender, about 1 hour. Carefully remove squash from the skillet and place on a plate to cool.
  3. Place your skillet over medium heat. Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Remove the beef with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl. Drain off the excess grease. Return the skillet to medium heat and add remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add onions and cook until softened, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add garlic, cumin, coriander, chili powder, and red pepper flakes and cook for another minute. Add tomatoes and pinto (or black beans) beans and stir to combine. Return the meat back to pan and stir again.
  4. Using a fork, shred out strands of spaghetti squash and add to the skillet. Toss to combine. Cook until everything is warmed through, 5-10 minutes. Divide among serving bowls with desired garnishes.

Serves 6.

We shared a couple recipes for cast iron skillet desserts recently, so we wanted to make sure we weren’t neglecting something important: the rest of the meal! Cooking the perfect holiday dinner can certainly be a challenge, but with a little help from your trusty Stargazer Cast Iron skillets and these easy-to-follow recipes, you can make your next holiday (or anytime) dinner a big hit.

Let’s get to it!

Boneless Rib Eye Roast with Garlic and Herbs

We’ll start with the main course. What’s better than a hearty, tender roast on a cold winter evening? Plus, you get the added bonus of filling your house with a divine aroma as this beauty cooks to perfection in your oven.

cast iron skillet boneless ribeye roast

The Ingredients

  • 1 boneless rib eye roast (3 1/2-4 pounds), tied
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 10 ounces pearl onions
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1/2 cup sherry
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium (or homemade) beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley
  • 3-4 tablespoons heavy cream

Horseradish Cream

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1-2 tablespoons horseradish (or to taste)

The Steps

  1. Make horseradish cream. In a bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, and horseradish. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use (at least 1 hour in advance).
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. Pat roast completely dry with paper towels. Season generously on all sides with salt and pepper.
  4. Place yourStargazer Cast Iron 12-inch skilletover medium-high heat and add olive oil. Once the pan is hot and the oil is almost smoking, sear roast on all sides until browned (including both ends). Carefully transfer pan the to the oven and roast for 1-1 1/2 hours, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into roast registers 130°F (for medium rare). Roast will continue to cook as it rests. Remove from oven and transfer roast to a plate, tent with aluminum foil, and allow roast to rest while you make the sauce.
  5. Place the skillet back over medium heat. Carefully remove all but 2 tablespoons of grease. Add butter and cook for about 1 minute. Add onions and cook until softened, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another minute. Slowly add sherry to deglaze the pan, scraping up the browned bits on bottom of pan. Add the beef stock. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and add cook until sauce has thickened. Add rosemary, parsley and season with salt and pepper. Stir in heavy cream and continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes.

Skillet Hasselback Potatoes

Don't roll your eyes at meat and potatoes! These Hasselback potatoes are rich and buttery, with fresh herbs to brighten up a classic. Go ahead and take your potatoes to the next level.

cast iron skillet hasselback potatoes

The Ingredients

  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3-3 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes

The Steps

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  2. Using the back of a knife, smash garlic slightly. Add a bit of salt over it and continue to smash garlic into a paste. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in olive oil. Brush the sides and bottom of your Stargazer Cast Iron 10.5-inch skillet with the butter mixture, coating completely. To the pan of butter, add garlic, rosemary, parsley, and season with pepper.
  4. Clean and scrub the potatoes. Pay completely dry. Trim a piece off bottom of each potato so that it sits flat on a cutting board. Slice potatoes into 1/4-inch thick slices, keeping each potato together after you slice it (this will help you transfer them to skillet). Arrange potatoes (slices) side by side, in a circular pattern, starting on outside of skillet and working your way into center. Brush the top and as much of the potatoes as you can with butter/oil mixture (reserving some for basting).
  5. Bake the potatoes for 1 hour, basting every 15 minutes with reserved butter/oil mixture, until fork tender. Serve warm.

Serves 6-8.
