1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated

Lemon Juice

Pepper, Garlic Powder, Parsley

Preheat a skillet with a drizzle of Olive Oil and a tsp of Butter.  While pan is heating, dredge Fish Filet in the egg, and then in the Bread Crumbs/Cheese mixture.

Fry filet over Medium heat until browned on both sides.  Blot quickly with paper toweling.  Serve.

Beef Tips, Mushrooms & Gravy in Pressure Cooker

Beef Tips, Mushrooms and Gravy (2)

      Bite-sized tender Beef in a succulent gravy?  Yes, please!  This is so delicious and will become a family favorite!    Carrots are not a traditional addition to this dish, but we both love carrots cooked with gravy, so in they went.

INGREDIENTS:

1 ½ lbs of beef tips, beef stew meat, sirloin, etc.

Pinch of Rosemary

3 or 4 carrots, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces

1 rib celery, cut into bite-size pieces.

Olive Oil for browning

1 Medium Onion, sliced or chopped

1 – 3 tsp Garlic, chopped or minced

3 ½ cups Mushrooms, quartered

2 Mini Sweet Peppers, sliced

2 tsp Butter

3 TBSP AP Flour

1 can Beef Broth

¼ Dried Thyme

1 tsp Tomato Paste

1 TBSP Worcestershire

2 tsp Parsley

2 tsp Red Wine Vinegar

Salt and Pepper to Taste

 

PREPARATION:

Set Pressure Cooker on Sauté. Drizzle Olive Oil in bottom and let it become very hot.  Brown beef on all sides in two batches.  Add a quick pinch of Rosemary to each batch.  Remember to add an extra drizzle of Olive Oil and let it get hot before adding second batch of meat.  You’ll get too much juice if you do it all at once, and then the meat will begin to steam instead of brown.  Set meat and juices aside in a medium bowl.

 

Add another drizzle of Olive Oil and sauté Carrots and Celery.  Make sure to keep scraping the fond while cooking, as all the flavors will add to the gravy!  When browned, add Onion and Garlic, sauté until soft.  Remove to a medium bowl.

Add another drizzle of Olive Oil and Sauté Mushrooms and Mini Sweet Peppers for about 2 minutes.  Remove to bowl with the Carrots and Celery.

Add Butter.  While it’s melting, keep scraping that fond.  Return meat to Cooker and add 3 TBSP AP flour.  Stir until flour is well blended and coats the meat.  Add 1 can Beef Broth, stirring quickly.  Add Thyme, Tomato Paste, and Worcestershire, stirring until blended.

Fit on the lid of Pressure Cooker and tighten.  Set on Stew Cycle.

When Timer sounds, use Quick Release Method to remove lid.  Add Red Wine Vinegar, Salt and Pepper.  Stir contents.  Add Carrot/Celery/Mushroom bowl (including juices) on top of Meat.  Lock lid on again.  Set Cook time to 10 minutes on High pressure.  When Timer sounds, use Quick Release Method again.  Gravy should be good and thick.  If not, remove all contents and cook just the gravy until thickened to your liking.

Serve with Mashed Potatoes, Noodles, Rice, Biscuits, or spoon it over Bread.

Kalpudding (Swedish Meatloaf With Caramelized Cabbage)

Kalpudding - Swedish Meatloaf

Kalpudding

 

     I spotted this recipe in the NY Times and just had to make it.  It was simple, and delicious! I didn’t have any Lingonberry Preserves, so I substituted Raspberry.  It wasn’t overly sweet, no worries.  I followed the recipe exactly, but needed to bake it about 8 minutes longer than they suggested.  In a comment, someone posted that they warmed up a leftover piece of Kalpudding and served a Fried Egg on top.  I made that for Bob and he loved it.   Please note that the all the photos are Chew Wanna Eat prep and finished product photos.

This is a Swedish version of a dish with roots in the Ottoman Empire, an infidel’s version of Turkish dolmas, made not with lamb and grape leaves but with ground pork and beef cloaked with deeply caramelized cabbage. It is served here with lingonberry preserves cut with vinegar and Worcestershire sauce, and made velvet with butter. The dish goes beautifully with boiled potatoes. In Sweden, you’d use golden syrup to caramelize the cabbage, but molasses works just as well. The Swedish chef Magnus Nilsson told me the result is no less Nordic for the substitution. “Cabbage smells in a very special way when it almost burns,” he said. “It gets savory, almost like a beef stock. It tastes almost brown and umami yummy.” You’ll want to eat it right away, but the leftovers make for a fine sandwich in coming days.

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE MEATLOAF:

  • 2tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 1head green cabbage, approximately 3 pounds, cored and shredded
  • 3tablespoons molasses
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • ¾pound ground beef
  • ¾pound ground pork
  • 1small yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1cup heavy cream
  • 4tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • cup chicken, beef or vegetable stock, ideally homemade or low-sodium store-bought (or water)

FOR THE SAUCE:

  • cup lingonberry preserves (I used raspberry)
  • 1tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, or to taste

PREPARATION

  1. Heat oven to 350. Put a large pan over medium-high heat and add the butter. When it starts to foam, add the cabbage and molasses, lower the heat to medium and sprinkle with salt. Cook slowly, stirring often, until all the liquid has evaporated and the cabbage is caramelized, approximately 20-25 minutes.
  2. While the cabbage is cooking, lightly mix the meats in a large bowl, then add the onion, cream and breadcrumbs, and mix again to combine.
  3. When the cabbage is done, add about a third of it to the meat mixture, and mix to combine. Use the remaining butter to grease an 8-inch-square baking pan, and transfer the meat mixture to it, spreading it out to cover the whole surface evenly. Spread remaining cabbage over the meat, pour the stock or water over the top and place in the oven, on a sheet tray, to cook for approximately 40 to 45 minutes, (I had to cook it almost 10 minutes longer because meat wasn’t done). or until the cabbage is very, very caramelized, almost dry and crunchy at the edges. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes or so before serving.
  4. While the meat and cabbage cooks, make the sauce. Heat lingonberry preserves, vinegar and butter in a small pot set over medium heat, then add Worcestershire sauce to taste. Serve alongside the kalpudding.

YAKISOBA SAUCE

Yakisoba Sauce

     What is Asian Yakisoba Sauce?  Other than delicious and easy to make?  Use it on Yakisoba Noodles, Beef, Pork, Chicken, Shrimp.  What does it taste like?  It’s a teeny bit sweet, a teeny bit spicy, a teeny bit salty, and a teeny bit sweet.  You are welcome to customize it.  If you want it hotter, add a bit more Honey or Hoisin Sauce, if extra Tang gets your taste buds in a whirl, up the Rice Vinegar by another teaspoon.  For a Spicier version, add a few extra drops of Chili Oil or even some Siracha Sauce.  Here’s how I made it:

 

INGREDIENTS:  Yields ½ cup +/-

4 TBSP low sodium Soy Sauce

2 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce

1 TBSP Rice Vinegar

1 TBSP Honey or sugar

1/8- ¼ tsp Chili Oil

1 TBSP ketchup

2 tsp Hoisin Sauce

2 TBSP Oyster Sauce

YAKISOBA NOODLES

Yakisoba - Copy

Move over, Mexican Street Corn. 

     These were hands down the best noodles I’ve ever had in my life!  One pan, and just a few minutes is all it takes to create this taste sensation.

   What are Japanese Yakisoba Noodles?  If lightly-Browned Stir-Fried Japanese Noodles sound good, just wait until you taste them!  You can travel to a Japanese street fair, stop at a food stall, or even sporting events.  Yakisoba Noodles are everywhere!   Sometimes it is served in a Hoagie style roll to make it more portable and easier to eat.

     Currently one of the most popular foods in Japan, Yakisoba is flavored with a condiment called Yakisoba Sauce, which foundation is Oyster, Worcestershire, and Soy Sauce.

     Traditionally made with fresh Yaki-Soba Pan Fry Noodles, (Buckwheat Noodles), dried Ramen noodles, or other Japanese-style noodles.  In a pinch, use Spaghetti or Fettuccini will work just as well. Just don’t overcook them because they will be cooked again

     Yakisoba translates to fried buckwheat noodles.  Part of the reason this dish grew so much in popularity is Japan began to grow its own buckwheat.

 

INGREDIENTS:

6 ounces Dried Noodles or 10 oz Fresh Japanese style noodles

2 Drizzles of Sesame Oil, or Canola oil for frying

Assorted Vegetables

Yakisoba Sauce (My recipe below)

A little Salt and Pepper

PREPARATION:

I used my Braiser Pan because I wanted to make a one pan dish.  You can cook the noodles in a Dutch Oven if you prefer.  I used Fettuccini Noodles and cooked them for about 7 minutes, then drained and rinsed in cold water.  Set aside.

In the same pan, drizzle a little oil and begin cooking the vegetables until they are crisp tender, starting with the ones that take longer to cook.  I did the Carrots first, then added the Brussels Sprouts.   I added a few Tablespoons of the Yakisoba Sauce to the Vegetables so they’d get extra flavor.  I always use Low Sodium Soy Sauce, so a touch of Salt and Pepper is necessary.

Once all the Vegetables are cooked, return the noodles to the pan.  I added another Tablespoon or so of Oil here.  Continue cooking and stirring, adding Yakisoba Sauce a Tablespoon at a time until the Noodles take on a darker color.  Taste one every once in a while.  I made enough for 4 servings and only used a little over half of the Yakisoba Sauce recipe below.  Too much Yakisoba Sauce and you’ll have a very salty noodle.  They will soak up the Sauce as they go. It’s up to you how long to cook the Noodles.  They can remain soft or a little on the crispy side.  Your choice.  Garnish with Sesame Seeds if you’d like.

Ham and Bean Stew

Ham and Bean Stew (3)

     There is almost nothing heartier than a big bowl of ham and bean soup.  I decided to make mine a little thicker, hence the name stew.  It’s rib stickin’ good!

INGREDIENTS: 

1 lb of dried Great Northern, Cannellini, or Navy Beans

1 medium Onion, diced

2-3 Cloves Garlic, chopped

3 cans Chicken broth

1 can Water

1 or 2 Bay Leaves

2 cups Leftover Cooked Ham

2 -3 Carrots, sliced or diced

1 Rib Celery, chopped

1 Sweet Potato, cut into bite size pieces (Optional)

1 TBSP Brown Sugar

Optional:  ½ tsp Sriracha Sauce

Parsley, Thyme, Pepper, scant 1/8 tsp Nutmeg, ¼ tsp Dry Mustard (Don’t add any salt until you taste it)

NOTE:  If you have a Ham Bone, or Ham Hock, add that when you add the Chicken Broth.

PREPARATION:

Rinse beans, toss any that look shriveled.  Add 4 – 5 cups cold water, cover and let stand at least 6 hours.

Drain and rinse beans.  Return to pot.  Add Onion, Garlic, Chicken Broth, Water, and Bay Leaves.  Cover and simmer for 60 minutes or until beans are beginning to get tender.  If you remove mash some of the beans with a potato masher while they’re still in the pot, you’ll end up with a creamier, thicker end product.  Add ham, Carrots, Celery, and Sweet Potato.  Cover and let simmer until Carrots are tender.  Add Brown Sugar, Sriracha, and Seasonings.  (Taste before adding Salt). Remove Bay Leaf.  Let simmer another few minutes.

Orange Shrimp and Pork Fried Rice

20180328_173554

     Orange Shrimp is one of my favorites.  I had leftover Pork, so I decided that Chinese was in order.  The Shrimp with it’s creamy Orange Sauce was out of this world.  I have a habit of not measuring when I cook, so all Ingredients are guestimated.  Adjust as necessary to your liking.  The Shrimp can be spicy or mild, it’s up to you.  I will say that it was an outstanding dinner.

SHRIMP INGREDIENTS:    Yields 2 Servings

12 OZ Bag Jumbo Shrimp

1 orange

2 cloves garlic, minced

Dash Chinese 5 spice powder, Dash of Ginger Powder

Parsley

Olive Oil

2 tsp Corn Starch

1 TBSP Low Sodium Soy Sauce

Optional:  1 TBSP Siracha Sauce

Parsley, Pepper

Optional Sesame Seeds

 

Marinade Ingredients: 

2 TBSP Orange Zest

3-4 TBSP Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice

1 TBSP Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

2 TBSP Low Sodium Soy Sauce

2 TBSP Honey

1 TBSP Rice Vinegar

2 TBSP Canola Oil

½ of an onion cut into strips top to bottom

1” piece of ginger root, peeled and cut in chunks

2 cloves garlic, minced

Optional Dash of Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

 

SHRIMP PREPARATION: 

Remove tails and rinse shrimp well.  Drain well.  Place into a small bowl.  Pour mixed marinade over shrimp, stir, and refrigerate for about 2 hours.

While Rice is in the skillet, drain the Shrimp and discard the liquid, Onion, and Ginger root.  In a second skillet, add the remainder of the juice from the Orange, Corn Starch, Siracha Sauce, Garlic, 5 Spice Powder, and Ginger Powder.  Optionally you can add a few quarters of Orange.  (See photo).  Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened.  Remove to the bowl that your rice chilled in.  Set aside.

In the same pan, add a drizzle of Olive Oil.  When pan is hot, add the drained Shrimp.  You can optionally add a dash of Crushed Red Pepper Flakes now.  Cook about 3 minutes over medium heat until Shrimp is pink.  Return the Orange Sauce to the pan.  As soon as it begins to simmer, it’s ready to serve.  You may garnish with Sesame Seeds if you’d like to.

 

FRIED RICE INGREDIENTS:  Yields 4 – 5 Servings

1 ½ – 2 cups leftover Pork or Chicken cut into chunks or strips

Veggies I used:  Snow Pea Pods, Onion, Garlic, Asparagus, Mushrooms, 1 Carrot diced

4 Servings of Rice cooked and chilled

2 TBSP Hoisin Sauce

3-4 TBSP Low Sodium Soy Sauce

1-2 cloves Garlic, minced

Pepper, Parsley

1 TBSP Butter

1 or 2 Eggs

 

PORK FRIED RICE INGREDIENTS:

Preheat a large skillet and drizzle Olive Oil in the bottom.  Add the cold rice and give it a stir.  Let it cook for about 5 minutes. (Reserve the bowl the rice was in.)

Add the Soy Sauce and Hoisin Sauce, stirring well.  Let it cook for another 5 minutes.

Add the Veggies that take the longest to cook first (Carrots) and let them cook for 5 minutes.  Add the remainder of Veggies.

When Veggies are tender, add the diced Pork.  Stir.  Make a well in the center.  Add a pat of Butter.  When melted, add the Egg and let sit until mostly cooked.  Break up and stir throughout rice.  Taste and adjust anything you care to.
