FINALLY! I have the time to write a recipe for my own food baby. Let me tell you Yummies, food blogging is not for the weak of heart. I am in awe of so many fellow foodie bloggers who manage to keep their sites up to date with beautiful pictures, delicious recipes and witty anecdotes while contributing to other sites with even more beautiful pictures, delicious recipes and witty anecdotes.

I just went through my first week of writing and cooking for other, larger, bigger, badder food sites and I. Am. Beat. WHEW! Don't get me wrong, I am also super-insanely-uncontrollably JAZZED to see Yumology play in the same sandbox as some of our idols (links will be coming soon on our social media pages so stay tuned Yummies) but we need to make sure we're showing the looove to our own blog baby. So here goes, a warm and tasty stuffed hug for you, the original Yummies!

Have a delicious day!

12 large tomatoes
1 pot roast
1/2 bottle of red wine
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 sliced onion
1/2 tsp salt, pepper and garlic powder
2 cups of jasmine rice
1 large tin of red chili or red enchilada sauce
1 tbsp chopped cilantro


  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degree
  2. Add the olive oil and onion to the bottom of a dutch oven or oven pot with a lid
  3. Rub the pot roast down with the salt, pepper and garlic powder
  4. Add the pot roast to the dutch oven and pour 1/2 a bottle of red wine over the top
  5. Cook slowly for 4 hours
  6. After the time has elapsed check the meat, it should shred easily with a fork
  7. Shred the meat and add the red chili and rice to the pot
  8. Stir and cook for another 20 minutes or until the rice has absorbed the excess juices
  9. Remove the meat and rice pot from the oven and increase the heat to 325
  10. Core the tomatoes so that all the seeds are removed and each tomato forms a bowl
  11. Spoon the rice and meat mixture into each tomato until full and capped at the top
  12. Bake the tomatoes in the oven at 325 for 20 minutes until the tomatoes themselves soften and the skin begins to split or blister
  13. Remove the tomatoes from the oven and top with cilantro garnish

This is a great recipe for a large group. We hope you and your friends enjoy!
