DINNER is meant to be enjoyed, and cooked in a SINGLE pan whenever possible 😀 I want to make JUST ONE fantastic dish that is so flavorful and satisfying that it can stand alone or simply be paired with a salad or FRESH rolls. Now to be honest this takes 2 pans UNLESS you use a LARGE cast iron skillet which is my weapon of choice 😀 or at least an ovenproof skillet of some sort.
