What New Recipe Did You Make Recently?
Since the New Year, I'm trying out a new recipe every Thursday night for dinner. Wondering if you've tried anything recently with great success.
I was going to make regular beef stew last night; but looking through here for ideas to jazz it up, I found an old post of mine with a recipe for Fragrant Beef Curry that I said I was going to try. Someone had been given this recipe in 1936 by his friend's mother, which caught my interest. I love old family recipes. But I posted this years ago! I had all the ingredients on hand so made it, and it is super delicious. Easy too. Whenever I have stew meat, this will be my go-to recipe now.
Looking it up, I see I got this from Val in 2006! Belated thanks Val! Great find!!
The only changes I made were lite coconut milk for plain, and for the tomatoes and red pepper flakes, took the easy way out and used a can of Rotel.
I try new recipes quite often. My favorite that comes to mind is authentic steamed brown bread that used to be popular with baked beans. Had to find coffee cans.
I have been having trouble finding a kale salad recipe I like but someone on an internet discussion group posted a link to a Boston Globe recipe for kale, steamed brussel sprouts and pear salad. I like it a lot.
My "new" ingredient is probably celeriac. It's kind of pricey but I hope to grow it in this year's veggie garden. I was a nice addition to turkey soup in addition to regular celery.
I made Golden Temple Lamb Curry out of the book "Mighty Spice" last nite, except I substituted chicken thighs for lamb for a couple of reasons. The only store I had time to get to was all out and anyway I really wanted to make sure I liked the flavor profile before I made the larger financial commitment using leg of lamb. The curry was very tasty, my whole family liked it and I will make it again but next time I will bloom the spices in a little hot oil before I put them in the blender & I'll probably increase the heat factor a little bit. The chicken was fine & actually worked out well because it took a lot less time to cook than lamb & I was running a little late when I got started.
I made this pork loin roast last night for my potential in-laws, who are very "meat and potatoes" types, turned out very tasty. I had previously used it before on chops. I had a 3lb roast so I had to increase the cooking time and double the rub and glaze ingredients and use more bacon. http://www.thecomfortofcooking.com/20...
I very rarely repeat recipes, I make new ones all the time!
