This is a zingy marinade that worked nicely in this fish packets recipe. I’ll freeze the rest and probably use it on chicken.
This was the epic dish I made for this year’s holiday potluck (as well as a vegetarian mole, see next post). It’s hard but really impressive. My one mistake (I think) was that I forgot to add the sesame seeds earlier in the recipe.
So this recipe is for the sauce. For serving, I roasted two whole chickens in the oven, cut them into pieces (I also had some pulled chicken that came out of this), and then simmered the chicken in the sauce for several minutes to serve. To dilute the sauce for future use, it’s 1 cup mole to 1/2 cup chicken broth.
I made these meatballs for the meatball project, and decided vodka sauce would be a good match for this recipe and the chicken sausage one I made before. Here’s the sauce I made — these were the meatballs, but I just used the food processor rather than a meat grinder to grind the thighs this time.
SO GOOD. Just a great way to cook a bunch of meats all day and have it come together into a fabulous sauce. Serve over pasta.
This wasn’t perfect, but given the fact I made about three different cooking mistakes while making it, it still turned out reasonably well (and I can’t blame the recipe for that). In general I’ll take a blender Hollandaise any day because it’s such a fussy sauce. Served over asparagus.
I made steaks for Valentine’s Day (not an unusual move for us). I decided to dress up the porterhouse we shared with some horseradish butter. Super simple, and added a nice zing.
My friend Jen made these fabulous cocktail meatballs for a party recently. To the point I couldn’t stop thinking about them and had to make them for dinner. Turns out our ovens/Dutch ovens, etc. must run on different cooking times, as I cooked my meatballs for half as long and almost burned them (I just made a second batch of gravy and ate them up anyway). But on account of that, I’m including just the sauce recipe for now – just bake with any meatball of choice, whether it be beef, turkey or a mix.
