3 Tblsp. cooking oil
1 lb. ground beef (or any leftover meat or poultry)
1/2 cup cooked potatoes, diced small
2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
2 small sweet onions, diced
1 small red sweet pepper, diced small
1 (16 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
2 Tblsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. salt

Heat oil in large heavy skillet and add next 4 ingredients. Cook until
beef is brown. If using leftover meat, cook just until everything is
hot.
Add the remaining ingredients to the skillet and stir gently until
combined. Cover and slowly simmer for 40 to 50 minutes or until nice
and hot and bubbly. Uncover if the liquid seems to be overtaking the
other ingredients.
You can also bake this if you use an oven-ready skillet, like a cast
iron skillet. After browning the meat and adding the veggies and
seasoning, just pop it in the oven, covered, for 50 to 60 minutes at 325
degrees.

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1-cup cornmeal
5 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2-teaspoon salt
1-cup milk
1/3-cup canola oil
1 large egg, slightly beaten 
1 tablespoon (more or less if you want) fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease and 8 or 9-inch square pan.

Sift dry ingredients into mixing bowl. Form a well in the mixture and add the milk, oil, and egg. Stir just until everything is combined – there should still be scattered clumps of flour, about the size of baby peas or BBs. Add rosemary.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 24 to 30 minutes, until the cornbread is starting to brown slightly (especially at the edges) and a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Serve hot.
