Unstuffed Egg Roll Skillet Dinner

Unstuffed Egg Roll Skillet Dinner

I thought I might have made a new invention when I made my Unstuffed Egg Roll Skillet Dinner not too long ago. See, I was going to make Egg Rolls, but for some reason, I was just ravenous.

Cuban Cabbage Salad

Cuban Cabbage Salad

When I made my Lechon Asado the other day, of course, I made Cubano Sandwiches with the leftovers. I love love love Cubanos! I wasn’t feeling the usual suspects, fries or chips as a side. No, I wanted something bright, fresh and summery. So why not Cuban Cabbage Salad?

Vaguely Vietnamese Slow Cooker Pork Tacos

vaguely vietnamese tacos: results in a vaguely Vietnamese tangle of pulled pork that is best accompanied by a bright and crunchy slaw, and served on warm flour tortillas

Slow cooked to perfection, this fall off the bone, tender pork was featured in “Slow Cooker Redeemed” in the New York Times. “It results in a vaguely Vietnamese tangle of pulled pork that is best accompanied by a bright and crunchy slaw, and served on warm flour tortillas…” I made you wait for it, yesterday, when I posted the Vaguely Vietnamese Slaw recipe, and I hope you’ll think these Tacos are worth that little delay.

Bulgolgi, I'm talking about wafer thin slices of tender beef, marinated overnight. Then grilled (or in this case) cooked in a skillet until the edges caramelize

Bulgogi (Korean Beef)

Korean Bulgolgi, I'm talking about wafer thin slices of tender beef, marinated overnight. Then grilled (or in this case) cooked in a skillet until the edges caramelize This is insane!

Is it just me or is Korean food trending, now? It’s hard to tell sometimes because when I crave sumpin’, I seem to see it everywhere! I’m blaming Momofuku. I keep hearing so much about the restaurants and books and owner/chef David Chang.

Simon Pearce Connemara Soup Corned Beef

Connemara Soup with Bacon or Corned Beef

Connemara Soup from Simon Pearce Restaurant - made with corned beef but would be just as good with bacon or smoked sausage!

This is an adaptation of Connemara Soup from the Simon Pearce Restaurant in Vermont. A rich tomato soup flavored with bacon (or as I did today, Corned Beef) and brimming with tomato, potatoes and healthy cabbage. If you’ve made a Corned Beef Dinner, a little left over Corned Beef and the vegetables can be diced up to make this tasty soup. Best of all, you can use some of that broth* from the Corned Beef Dinner, defatted, of course.

Grilled Sesame Chicken Salad with 3 Dressing Options . about $5.75

These salads with an Asian flair seem to be all the rage these days and it’s no wonder: crisp lettuce, chicken and dressings that are almost addictive. And if you’re lucky, you’ll find one with a few little fried won-ton strips, just in case all that health is too much for you! Make them at home, though, and you’ll spend a fraction of the money, up the nutritional value and lower the calories.
