Boneless spare ribs with wild mushroom rice and popcorn cauliflower.  The ribs were moist and delicious, Iíd order them anytime in a restaurant.  The popcorn cauliflower was fantastic as well.

Sesame chicken, Chicken Tortellini with pesto sauce, and Balsamic Baby Portabella Mushrooms.  The Sesame chicken was good though it could have used more sauce.  The mushrooms were great and the chicken tortellini was very good as well.

Eggplant Rollatini.  This stuff is unbelievable.  Eggplant loaded with ricotta, tomato sauce, and cheese. Itís probably the best eggplant dish Iíve had in my life.  An absolute must try.

Eggplant Parmesan was the absolute best Eggplent Parmesan Iíve had in my life as well. Itís such a pleasure to eat so well while traveling.

Penne a la Vodka was good, though overshadowed by our massive portions of out of this world Eggplant dishes.

Honey Mustard Corned Beef.  This was a truly awesome mouth-watering dish.  Thick juicy slices of tangy corned beef, itís a real treat.

Glazed dark meat chicken stuffed with pastrami was awesome.  The couscous and green beans were good as well.

I wasnít such a fan of the Sino steak as it was a bit tough.

Fettuccine Alfredo was creamy and fantastic.

Baked Ziti was delicious as well.

Lasagna was good, but not quite up to par as some of the other dairy meals.

Absolutely perfect Chicken Marsala though I wasnít such a fan of the Shlishkes. The grilled Portabella Mushrooms were very good.

Hot pastrami was very good, but just canít compete with the honey mustard corned beef.  The Garlic mashed potatoes were phenomenal!

Ancho Marinated Hanger Steak had a fantastic flavor though it got a bit dried out unfortunately.  The grilled vegetables were very good.

The Mac and Cheese was very good, though obviously not as good as when the hotel heats it up for you.

Spicy Southern Fried Chicken Nuggets are outstanding.  The seasonings are just amazing.  The only thing Iíd like with it is a dipping sauce so it was perfect that we also had the meatballs below!

Meatballs were very good in a tasty sauce.

Mini stuffed cabbage were excellent as were the roasted potatoes and garlic string beans.

But this was what really blew me away.  The Delmonico steak in a red wine reduction was far superior to the steak that youíll receive in your local steakhouse.  And when a store figures out how to make a frozen steak that is reheated taste better than what most steakhouses serve Iím left completely speechless.  Plus itís packed with 2 of my favorite sides-the garlic mashed potatoes and popcorn cauliflower.

From various DDFrs -
 Honey mustard corned beef and the spare ribs were delicious.
The garlic green beans were a great side dish.
The cheese blintzes were fantastic
Sesame chicken, Chicken Tortellini

Every single dish, whether a fancy rib steak or simple tzimmes, was absolutely delectable. The General Tso's was saucy, spicy, and delicious

@Yehuda - August 2015:
Great - BBQ chicken nuggets, Baked breaded chicken cutlet, Buffalo chicken wings, Cheese blintzes, Penne ala vodka, Popcorn cauliflower, Roasted potatoes were great.
Okay - Ribs too fatty for me, Fire Poppers Chicken Nuggets too spicy for me, Garlic broccoli, Mashed potatoes
Bad - Roasted asparagus (was white asparagus)

Anyone have ideas for food for Shabbos day? Will have access to a (treif) oven that can be left on, but won't be getting to the house until about 2 hours before Shabbos starts  (meaning anything will be almost completely raw and can't be put in).
bring a small crock pot

Yes, bringing that. Just wondering about hot food. Figured I'll bring overnight potato kugel but that's about it.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Don't have time for it to be 3/4 cooked before Shabbos. We can bring it frozen technically but... blurgh. Also really heavy.

If you put it in fully raw right before the zman, that is fine as well if its for the day meal. Check with your LOR.

Must be meat - not veggies, and could be just a piece of raw meat - doesn't have to be the whole dish.

I was under the impression that 3/4 was the halachically permissible amount.

Either 1/2 or 2/3 though if you cover the flame there's more room to be Maykil. Rae meat before Xmas could also work though some modern poskim are more hesitant due to the possibility of cooking meat very quickly in a broiler or hot oven.
