Instant Pot Corned Beef & Cabbage

Instant Pot Corned Beef & Cabbage

Ya gotta know I have a bit of a thing for Corned Beef. Heck, I and can hardly wait every year to make it for St. Paddy’s day! I even have a couple of recipes already on my site, Corned Beef & Cabbage Dinner for the Crockpot or Oven and a Whiskey & Marmalade Glazed Corned Beef. Both are delish but I just had to make an Instant Pot Corned Beef for this year. I’ve actually made it several times just to make sure I got my fill I perfected it before I posted the recipe, here.

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?

Original Fat Burning Cabbage Soup

The Original Fat Burning Cabbage Soup

A while back, in a discussion with some friends about food that’s great to eat when you’d like to knock off a few pounds, someone mentioned Cabbage Soup – in a rather derogatory way. They were talking about The Original Fat Burning Cabbage Soup, a recipe that’s been around for ages and ages.

Vaguely Vietnamese Slow Cooker Pork Tacos

Vaguely Vietnamese Slow Cooker Pork Tacos

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 Vaguely Vietnamese Slow Cooker Pork Tacos, yesterday when I posted the Vaguely Vietnamese Slaw recipe, and I think these Tacos are worth that little delay.

Bulgogi Korean Beef

Bulgogi (Korean Beef)

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. And of course, I’m talking here, in the US, not in Korea where I assume Korean food is always trending! I hope I’m going to add to that trend with this marvelous Bulgogi Korean Beef.

Bulgogi Korean Beef

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.

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.

Posole or Pozole Pork Hominy Stew

Posole or Pozole Pork Hominy Stew

I was introduced to Posole Rojo or Pozole Pork Hominy Stew in Denver when one of my co-workers bought it to nearly every “food day.” Those in the “know” snuck away to the buffet table before lunch to get some before it was all gone. Now, I’d like to introduce you! Succulent pork and hominy swimming in a rich, garlicky, chile-based broth; the taste is reminiscent of tamales.
