Based on a recipe from Marlene Koch’s book, Fantastic Food with Splenda. She says in its intro, “Hoisin is a thick, sweet, spicy condiment used extensively in Asian cuisine. In addition to being spread on pancakes for mu shu pork, it is used for delicious stir-fry barbecue sauces like this one.” She also offers this tip: “Hoisin is made from soybeans, chilies, garlic, ginger, and sugar. Brands vary quite a bit from one to another. It should be very dark and have a complex flavor. Koon Chun is one preferred brand.” Prep and cook times do not include the marinating time.
This is a recipe I am transferring here from an old handwritten recipe card. I have no idea where it came from, but I have made it many times over the years and we really like it. (There are several recipes for Cajun pork chops here, but the dry rub mixture in this recipe has different ingredients.)
An ever so easy chicken recipe that is quick and tasty to whip up after a busy day when you don't feel like spending ages in the kitchen doing preparation. Just crumb the chicken, then relax with a nice glass of white wine before cooking. Goes really well with new potatoes, rice or couscous.and a salad. Enjoy! NB: I have posted this recipe as it was printed in the Feb 09 edition of "Recipe+" but my chicken breasts were very thick so I cut them thinly so they were more like schnitzels.
Skordomakarona is actually garlic spaghetti with fresh tomato. Really tasteful! Do not add much garlic, if you are not fond of it, but do prepare this dish!
This dish comes from Santorini and I found it on greeka.com.The original calls for two orange barks,but since I don't know what they are and zaar also doesn't recognize it,I left it out.Here's the link:http://www.greeka.com/cyclades/santorini/recipes/skordomakarona.htm
Preparation time does include marinade time, just to allow the marinade to soak into the beef. To get neat thin slices of beef I freeze the beef for 45 mins and then slice thinly, giving me the perfect cut. I don't eat red meat but Hubby and Little Miss (DD) love beef and they enjoyed this quick recipe. Original recipe comes from Annette Sym's which was featured on Channel Nine's Extra but I have twinkled with it
this is the first year i planted a garden here in pa. it was essentially herbs, but i threw in 2 tomato plants and one pepper plant, now this late in the season i am left with many green tomatoes. this recipe is courtesy of tyler florence, and worked perfectly.
Bourbon, mustard, shoy (asian soy sauce) and brown sugar gives this easy dish a charming flavor. It can be cooked on the grill, but I find it best cooked in the oven. Serve the pork sliced with the mustard sauce on the side.
This is a recipe I litally threw together in a pinch to accompany burgers flavored with montreal steak seasoning. The fries turn out tender on the inside and crispy on the outside with the flavors of montreal steak seasoning. Please be warned, though, that these are lightly salty. DH and I enjoy a bit of saltiness, so that wasn't a problem for us.
I decided to have a treat the other night and buy some nice thick fillet steaks as we have not had a good steak in awhile. With all the food prices going up so dramatically this one-two time a week enjoyed cut of beef has now become one-two time a month affair, here's hoping food prices come down again soon. This is a simple recipe that pairs well with steak and does not require lots of effort, feel free to serve this with a cheaper cut of beef or with your favourite cut.
Quick, easy and makes for a great basting sauce when wanting something a touch different when grilling. Amazing how something so easily made makes for a crowd pleaser. I usually triple the recipe and when wanting a little spice I add some dried crushed chili peppers.
My son asked me to make some of these to take on a picnic to impress his girlfriend.
I found this recipe on the Nestle site and it was so quick and easy, that this is the only recipe I use now. I have found any good chocolate can be used but the Melts or chips are easier to melt, you can use either dark, white or milk chocolate depending on you taste. I also dip some of the strawberries in chopped nuts or sprinkles after dipping in chocolate for a great effect. Preparation time includes setting of the Strawberries.
