Matsutake Sukiyaki

Yum! What a fun new Japanese recipe to put into the rotation. And a good use for matsutakes which were again available at the market.

Beef Pot Roast

Terrific CL recipe! John was over the moon about it. And it went particularly well with some of our friend Amy’s leftover homemade bread.

I used a two-pound bottom roast instead of a three-pound chuck roast and it still worked out great.

Lighter Stroganoff

I wanted to have a lighter stroganoff recipe in my arsenal. This one was pretty good, though I think if I made it again, I’d use slightly less sour cream and tomato paste.

Beef and Eggplant with Miso

I nerdily tape (among other things on NHK) “Your Japanese Kitchen Mini,” these little five minute cooking segments on the Japanese channel. I basically want to make practically every recipe Harumi makes on it. And this was a great one – a lovely sweet/salty balance and a good way to use up in-season eggplant.

The instructions given are a little on the vague side, but I made it work. The fry step is a bit of a hassle, but the texture of the eggplants was really nice, and I’m guessing that had something to do with it. I’d totally make this again, as I have trouble thinking of things to do with eggplant that get me excited.

Steak Asparagus Skillet

Everyone I know is making this dish lately. It was quite good, if not a total knock-out (I also overcooked the meat a bit, to be fair). I used less oil than the recipe called for but I don’t remember precisely how much, so writing the recipe as is.

Beef Bowl

Mmm, beef bowl. Not sure if I prefer this recipe or the one I made previously, but both are great. And I still am not good at poaching eggs.

Lomo Saltado

I made this when my friend Amy came over for dinner and we liked it a lot. It’s basically a Peruvian beef stir fry (John orders it frequently) with french fries mixed in. Loosely based off of this recipe with variation.
