1. Baked Beef Back Ribs

Saturday is no fun without the juicy and meaty beef back ribs; this time, you can simply bake them. After seasoning the beef back ribs with aromatic spices, place them in a preheated oven and cook them for at least 3 – 4 hours.

I know the baking time is a little extra, but I would ask you to have a great amount of patience and maybe watch a sitcom, maybe F.R.I.E.N.D.S. 

Once done, take the beef back ribs and drizzle some BBQ Sauce over them, giving the ribs a delicious and memorable flavor. The BBQ sauce is the star of the recipe. But do not forget to broil the back beef ribs for another few minutes.

After long hours of waiting, you have your perfect Saturday night dish. Just ensure you don’t burn the beef back ribs in the oven (it may or may not have happened with me). I love this recipe because it has a great umami flavor and fills my stomach well. The best thing is that the baking part is the only time-consuming part, as you don’t have to do much in the preparation.

2. Chicken Stuffing Casserole

I cannot let my Saturday pass without making a chicken dish, and last weekend, I tried chicken stuffing casserole, which was really delicious. I got the recipe ready within less than an hour, which gave me time to prepare some drinks to enjoy along with the meal. 

If you love to eat savory chicken dishes but don’t like much fuss while cooking, like me, try this recipe. All you have to do is prepare the filling and stuffing and bake the dish.

You can make the stuffing mix as per the instructions on the pack. And about the filling, you would need chicken soup, sour cream, and cream of mushroom soup. This makes your dish juicy and flavorful. 

While adding chicken to the mixture, make sure to add different and colorful vegetables. When everything is prepared, assemble them in one place – a baking tray. Start with spreading the filling mixture, followed by the stuffing, and bake until your chicken stuffing casserole is golden and bubbling. Bubbling means you are done with your dish, and it is time to feast on it.

3. Instant Pot Porchetta Roast

Love eating pork? For me, pork roast is a comfort food, so I am sharing an instant pot porketta roast recipe for you that you can make on Saturday dinner night. You can work with pork butt or maybe boneless pork.

I prefer the boneless one. Drizzle some oil over the pork and coat with porchetta seasoning, pepper, and salt. Now you may wonder what porchetta seasoning is. It is a simple blend of garlic powder, dried parsley, dried oregano, rosemary, basil, and fennel seeds. You can get this blend at your local store or make it at home.

Not to worry, as many times when I don’t have this seasoning, I surprise myself with some other aromatic spices available. Simply cook the pork in an instant pot, and you are done. While the pork is cooking, you can prepare some side dishes with some potatoes to enjoy with the meal.

Maybe cook some rice or noodles to enjoy with pork roast. Once done, cut the pieces after letting the dish rest for a while and serve. I am pretty sure that you will love this recipe as it is very warm and comforting.

4. Creamy Lemon Pasta

I can’t get over the fact that there are so many ways to cook pasta, and this makes me try different recipes every time I get a chance to cook dinners, especially on Saturdays. One Saturday, I came across a creamy lemon pasta recipe and thought to try it. 

Trust me; the pasta turned out to be really creamy and delicious. If you follow the recipe precisely, I am sure you will like the dish. Cook the pasta as usual, and meanwhile, the pasta is getting done, prepare the creamy sauce. 

Simply make your regular white sauce using butter and flour. The moment you add broth to make the sauce, make sure to add some lemon juice and zest. This is the part where your pasta will get a creamy yet lemony flavor. 

Add pasta to the sauce prepared, and don’t forget to coat the pasta really well. I love adding fresh cream and parmesan cheese to make my pasta a real deal. Top it with some parsley and serve it hot. I prefer some good wine with my creamy, lemony pasta. What about you?

5. Crab Cakes

Not all Saturday nights are filled with energy; if you are a lazy potato like me, I know what you can have for dinner. Try some crab cakes! They are super delicious, full of filling, and quite easy to make. Crab cakes are a treat for me, and I enjoy them with dipping sauce. 

All you have to do is to marinate the crab meat with mayonnaise and other ingredients to make delicious patties. When you are done making the patties, simply cook them in a skillet. Make sure to add enough oil. 

When the crab patties turn golden, you are ready to scrap the excess oil and serve. I prefer to grill some vegetables of my choice and serve them on the side. 

Whatever suits you can be done because Saturday dinner is meant to be about fulfilling food and comfort.

6. Baked Chicken Parmesan

If baked chicken casserole did not please you on Saturday dinner night, why don’t you try baked chicken parmesan? This chicken dish is cheesy and perfect for binge-watching Disney shows on Saturdays. 

(watch frozen, and I bet you will never be the same person) coat the chicken with some breadcrumbs and parmesan after brushing it with butter. Bake it for not more than 20-25 minutes.

Once done, top the chicken with sauce and some mozzarella cheese – this is my favorite part. Bake the chicken again until the cheese is melted. After the cheese is well melted, enjoy the baked chicken parmesan.

You can also add potatoes to the leftover mixture, bake until golden, and serve it on the side with chicken parmesan.

Woo your partner on a Saturday dinner with this very cute yet elegant dish- zucchini boats with ground beef. They look very fancy but won’t take up much of your time while preparing them. Simply scrape out the zucchini flesh and prepare the filling using beef and spices. 

You need to cook the filling for about 10 minutes. Once done, fill the zucchini, which looks like a boat, with the mixture prepared. Sprinkle cheese as much as you want. Bake them for 20-25 minutes; once done, your zucchini will be all bubbly.

 This might not look like a complete meal, but it is delicious, and if you pair the dish with other side items, you are good to go. You may try different variations by experimenting with the filling but just try this version. You can store this dish for next Sunday’s brunch as well. Just reheat and enjoy.

Pork is something that has a feeling of a weekend, and that is why you should consider making some slow-cooker pork loin this Saturday night. You will obviously need some pork loin to cook the recipe.

Let’s see what you have to do to create this delicious recipe.

Simply cook the pork in oil for some time. When the pork has a beautiful golden color, place it above the sliced onions in a slow cooker. Prepare the sauce and pour it all over the pork. Now that it is a slow pork loin, you need to cook it for at least 5 hours. 

Once done, serve the pork. You can also thicken the sauce and then pour it before serving. I can bet that this will turn out exactly as you want because mine did. Just stick with the recipe.

If you want your Saturday dinner to be simple and soothing, why don’t you try my all-time favorite black bean soup? You can add as many veggies as you want to in the dish. Cook the vegetables really well. 

To add aromatic flavors, go for some garlic. Once you add the black beans with some broth, go on adding spices like cumin, oregano, bay leaf, salt, and pepper. This is how your soup is going to be soothing. 

If you like thick soup, use a blender, pulse the beans, and let it simmer for a few minutes. Garnish your soup with some cilantro and fresh lime juice and stir it. Transfer into big bowls and enjoy the warm, fulfilling black beans on a cozy Saturday night.

Also called avocado hummus Buddha bowl, this dish will make sure that you stick to eating healthy even on Saturday night. I can bet that despite being so healthy, you will love the flavors and definitely try them next time. All we need is avocado and hummus with some ingredients that we would add to a bowl.

Firstly you will need some couscous and cook it with some oil along with salt and pepper. While it rests, prepare the creamy paste by blending chickpeas, avocado, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, water, and dried parsley. We need a very smooth and creamy paste out of this blend.

Add some seasoning to the creamy paste. Add some more salt and pepper and maybe more olive oil along with dill. Make a dressing for the recipe using lemon juice, olive oil, water, dill tips, salt, and pepper. 

Assemble everything in a bowl. You can add some feta cheese and make sure to sprinkle it generously. Pour the dressing all over. Toss everything together and enjoy your big bowl of Saturday night.

11. Vegetable Lasagna

If you are tired of eating chicken and beef, I recommend trying vegetable lasagna. It is best if you are a vegetarian and really want to enjoy some warm and cheesy lasagna. Cook your vegetables with salt and pepper. 

You may add some spinach to get the creamy texture. Prepare the authentic tomato sauce for the lasagna by pulsing fresh and juicy tomatoes. Get some cheese and give that, too, a great pulse. Let’s place everything in one place. Transfer the red sauce to the bottom of the baking dish. Now add the next layer – lasagna noodles.

Spread the cottage cheese mixture over the noodles. Another layer of tomato sauce and then a lot of cheese. Add more noodles and the remaining cheese mixture.

Repeat the same step one more time. Wrap the lasagna and bake for 15-20 minutes. When the lasagna gets golden, you are done. Serve and enjoy.

We all love pesto and pesto in our favorite pizza – a great combination. I am going to share with you a really delicious pesto pizza recipe that you can enjoy with some drinks and watch Netflix on a Saturday night.

 First thing first, make a basil pesto. Simply grind some basil with pine nuts, parmesan cheese, and garlic. Keep it aside in the refrigerator for later use. Now you need to prepare the pizza dough as usual. You can also buy packed pizza dough or base and cut down your preparation time.

Now all the steps are similar to regular pizza. Brush some oil on the prepared base and spread the pesto sauce.Add mozzarella cheese (go crazy with it) and some tomatoes. Bake the pizza for 10-15 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the cheese gets bubbly. Take it out and garnish it with some basil leaves.

I cannot emphasize enough that the dish with any alcohol as an ingredient gets ten times better in terms of flavors. That is why you must try Beer-battered shrimps. What’s not to love? Beer – good; lemon – good; prawns – good. 

All you have to do is prepare the batter with flour, garlic powder and beer. Season with salt and pepper. Make the batter and keep the required consistency so that you can easily coat the shrimps. In hot oil, cook the coated shrimps in batches.

Sprinkle some pepper and salt, and serve the golden and crispy beer-battered shrimps with some dipping sauce. for dipping sauce combine mayo, sour cream, lemon juice, lemon zest, one garlic clove and salt.

Salad may not sound like a great Saturday night dinner, but that is because you have not tried Barbecue beef salad with beer vinaigrette. You need to prepare the recipe in different parts and assemble all of them in one place.

You can start with a beer vinaigrette. Simply simmer the beer so that it is reduced to half. Meanwhile, you can preheat the barbecue and cook the corn and steak. Let the steak set aside, and prepare the dressing by mixing the reduced beer, vinegar, and maple syrup.

18. Vietnamese Pho

Have you ever tried pho? If you ask me, I would suggest you try authentic Vietnamese pho. Pho is nothing but a soup with so many ingredients, making it a complete meal. In Vietnamese pho, you must use marrow bones and beef chuck to get the exact taste and flavor as the authentic recipe. 

You can start by boiling the beef chuck and bones, and after a while, you can go on adding other ingredients like ginger and onions, fish sauce, and sugar. You may have to let the mixture simmer for about 30-40 minutes.

Now you have to follow technical steps like putting the one piece of beef into cold water first and then slicing it into thin pieces so that you can refrigerate it. You can leave the other piece to simmer for more than 30 minutes. You can add spices to make your soup aromatic. Once the soup is done, assemble everything in a bowl. 

Start with cooked noodles, then a few slices of beef chuck, followed by raw sirloin. Pour some soup over the noodles and top it up with onions, scallions, and cilantro. You can also use bean sprouts, herbs, chiles, lime juice, and black pepper to garnish the pho.

Before talking about crawfish stew, let me tell you how much I love this recipe. I have a quick tip, too, that I will share within a few seconds. In this recipe, we would need to prepare a roux. 

You can either prepare the same at home or get the store-bought. I prefer the latter. Now to make this crawfish stew, make sure the color of the roux is close to copper.

On the other side, cook the vegetables, sausages, and crawfish tails in a heavy fan. 

Combine the roux mix with the cooked ingredients. After a while, you can add other ingredients like mushrooms, green onions, and potatoes and let the whole mixture simmer.

Taste and adjust the seasoning. Don’t overcook, or everything may fall apart. Serve and enjoy the warm food.

24. Beef Bourguignon

I am just going to say it – this is the BEST beef dish I have ever tasted. Beef bourguignon made with only wine is a real classic take on beef casserole. You need some big chunks of steak that you will mix with some great wine and spices like bay leaf, thyme, and some pepper.

 It would be best if you did this the night before so that the steak really absorbs the wine and spices all too well. Next day, take out the steaks and let the excess marinated liquid out using a colander or a stainer. You can keep the wine for later use.

Cook the steaks in batches from each side until brown. In a skillet, give the wine a boil.Meanwhile, cook some vegetables of your choice and bring everything to one place once done. Bake the steak after mixing the steaks, cooking wine, and vegetables for around 2 hours and serve it hot.

I am sure the dish will be very tempting, and you can actually impress your guest with something fancy yet delicious.

Mashed potatoes are not considered a complete dish, but what if we make more out of simple mashed potatoes?

Lasagna mashed potatoes are your answer, and Saturday night is a great time to try and experiment with such a unique dish. To upgrade the regular mashed potato, mix beef and some tomato sauce. It would help if you started placing everything in a deep steam table pan. Layer the beef mixture with a lot of mozzarella sauce and some kale. 

Now comes the most important part – mashed potatoes. Make a layer of mashed potatoes. Repeat the same process, and then add more mozzarella and parmesan so that you can bake them. 

You will see the golden color with some bubbles, which means you are ready with your lasagna or, I would say, lasagna mashed potatoes. You can always add something of your own choice, like veggies.Let me know in the comments if you have some better additions to the dish.

Now, dishes with potatoes do not have any limit. One of the easiest and most delicious salads you can make for a not-so-simple Saturday dinner could be Peppery Mackerel with Potato Salad. Many may pair it up with other dishes, but I prefer to enjoy it as it is.

 Simply cook your potatoes in hot water with some salt and wait for them to cool down. Meanwhile, you can mix olive oil, vinegar, and mustard that will be mixed with the potatoes.

Add some shallots, gherkins, and dill and then throw in some peppery mackerel and stir well. You can even add boiled eggs.

Let me share a secret with you about myself: I love anything made with chicken. And that could be a reason why I am always bent a little toward chicken-based dishes. On the same note, have you tried chicken enchiladas? 

If not, then this is your sign. This French dish is so gorgeous that you can’t say anything to its face (All the swifties can relate, right?). You would need some shredded chicken and enchiladas sauce. Remember to cook the chicken and mix it with the super yummy sauce of enchiladas. You can add salt and pepper as per your taste. 

You will also need some tortillas that are microwaved. Place the chicken on the tortillas and let some cheese go on top. Roll the tortillas and place them side to side. Now comes the best and the last part – baking. 

But wait, why don’t we add another layer of sauce and cheese? I know I am super talented. Bake the dish and let the cheese melt really well and once done, it’s time to serve. Please don’t be impatient like me, or you will burn your mouth.

Farfalle, or bow-shaped pasta, was something that I first encountered at one of my friend’s home dinner parties, and since then, I have been head over heels in love with the taste of the recipe.

I had to ask her for the recipe, and when I tried it at my home, I was again head over heels in love with the taste and flavor. You can start by cooking the pasta and, on the side, prepare the toppings. You can cook beef with some mushrooms, bell pepper, and onions in a pan.

You don’t need any oil as the moisture from beef and mushroom would be enough to cook. Then adding tomato sauce will help the beef and mushroom to cook further.

Add the seasoning and simmer for about 15 minutes. In a baking dish, place the pasta and the prepared toppings.

Layer with some more mushrooms along with a lot of mozzarella and parmesan. First, bake it after covering it with foil. Once done, add more cheese and bake uncovered. Serve it hot, and I am sure this dish will end your cravings for good Italian pasta. I love adding more vegetables, but that depends on you.

You may have enjoyed many dishes that have chicken as a filling, but why don’t you try the other way around? Stuff your chicken this time. Start with cooking some peppers and onions. Season them with salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and other spices of your choice. 

Once vegetables are well cooked, mix cream cheese, cheddar, and pepper jack. Season some chicken with salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder. 

You can use chicken breast for the best result. Slit the chicken from the center and fill the vegetables. Cook the chicken from both sides. The chicken will turn golden, and the cheese will melt down. Enjoy this with sour cream and call it a great Saturday night dinner.

You have to cook the bashed chicken breast after seasoning it with spices and coating it with a buttermilk mixture. To make the honey glaze, cook soy sauce, honey, white wine vinegar, and lime juice in butter and give it a good boil until it gets thick in consistency.

Coat the cooked chicken with the sauce and place it between the buns after spreading mayonnaise and placing fresh lettuce. Add tomatoes as well. This is it.

You will get a thick consistency to place over the ribs before serving. I am sure that the ribs will be a perfect dinner if you want to have a juicy and meaty Saturday. I pair the ribs with other side dishes and just enjoy the meal.

I have no idea why it’s called sheet pan chicken fajitas. Maybe because they are placed on a tortilla. Whatever the reason is, I am sure of one thing: these chicken fajitas are a must-try. 

They are easy to make and are a perfect Saturday night meal. Simply marinate the chicken in spices along with red and yellow peppers. Bake the chicken until cooked. You can check the chicken and bake it again if required. Take two sheets of tortillas and fill the center with baked chicken and bell peppers. 

Now you can garnish with your choice of toppings. For instance, some sour cream and cilantro. There is no hard and fast rule for the toppings, so go as per your mood. When I cook these sheet pan chicken fajitas, I usually take the leftovers and eat them with some rice. You can even do that.

Firstly, what is polenta? And secondly, what is this mascarpone? Polenta is nothing but a dish that is made with cornmeal, whereas mascarpone is an acid-set cheese. Both ingredients are from Italy, and this is a sign that you should make a dish based on Italian culture this coming Saturday. 

Now that we are clear on these two ingredients, let me tell you more about this recipe. You can start with making polenta, for which you can get store-bought polenta and toast in a pan. Once well toasted, add broth and cook it for a while. 

Make sure there are no lumps. You can add spices, and after a few minutes, add mascarpone and some parmesan. You need to cook it for another 10 minutes. Set it aside once done. To prepare the vegetables, simply place them into a baking tray. Season with some spices and bake the veggies.

Add the veggies over the polenta and garnish with more parmesan, and enjoy the bowl of love and taste. The flavor of the dish is phenomenal and very warming to your soul.

Dark bean soup can be the least demanding dish option, but that does not mean it doesn’t fit for a Saturday night dinner. I love this soup simply because it is comforting and warm for a chilly winter Saturday night. 

Those with zero or less tolerance for spicy food should stay steer clear away from this dish. Or else adjust the level of spiciness and enjoy the warm soup. Cook vegetables in a pot like celery, onions, and carrot.

Use garlic and cumin for an aromatic flavor. Add red pepper as per your taste. Pour the boiled beans along with the broth and let it simmer. We need to get a thick consistency for the soup.
