The taro root, avilable in most supermarkets, is cultivated in many areas of the world including West Africa, Asia, Central America, South America and the Caribbean and Polynesian islands. It is a starchy tuber vegetable that looks like, and can be used similar to, a potato but has a nuttier flavor. Deep fried, they cook faster and taste better.
Rib Steak is the best! (but it can be improved upon). This recipe, adapted from a Montreal restaurant, is an alternative method of preparing Rib Steak that incorporates lots of garlic and lots of black pepper (which is not as hot as it looks). You will Love it.
This is a classic known in Mexico as "Cochinita Pibil". If you watched the movie "Once Upon a Time in Mexico" one of the lead characters ordered this in every cantina he visited, and if it wasn't up to par, he shot the chef. I have put this together from several sources to make finding the ingredients simpler. I like it a lot, but If you're not satisfied, please don't shoot the messenger.
This is a far better use for a cucumber than a lettuce salad. I have visited Turkey, the country of origin for this recipie, and find that this recipie is in keeping with the great tastes that Turkey has to offer in food preparation.
An easy company recipe. Many Flank Steak recipes call for marinating and cooking before carving. You get much more flavor by slicing first and it stays moist through the cooking process on the BBQ. It's quick and delicious.
I have been using this recipie for 30 years and have always had positive comments by those who have tried it. It is not a whimpy dressing, so I hope you like garlic (which can be increased for you hard core cooks).
