YES YES YES! I've been trying to only buy cheaper cuts and sale meats, and we are eating vegetarian once every few nights. We did pesto with vegetables the other night and the whole family loved it despite being vegetarian. We also do vegetarian currys they are very flavorful and can be as spicy as you want. We do stew meat and pork sholders in the crock pot and they come out amazing, and stretches across several meals for our small family.
