VEAL CHOPS ROBUCHON

Published by

I HAVE FOR THE MOST PART STOPPED EATING VEAL.  FIRST, BECAUSE THE MILK-FED VEAL WE GET IN THIS COUNTRY IS A PRODUCT OF THE CRUELEST KIND OF FACTORY FARMING, AND SECOND, BECAUSE FREE-RANGE VEAL– THE KIND YOU GET IN EUROPE– IS ALMOST AS RARE HERE AS IT IS EXPENSIVE.

CHINESE SPARE RIBS

Published by

YES, THESE ARE AS GOOD AS THEY LOOK. AND I DON’T EVEN HAVE A GRILL. EXCEPT FOR A FEW MINOR CHANGES, THIS IS 95% JULIA MOSKIN’S RECIPE FROM THE NY TIMES. YOU MARINATE THE RIBS IN HOISIN SAUCE, GARLIC, SOY SAUCE AND OTHER SEASONINGS. THE NEXT DAY (OR FOUR HOURS LATER) YOU STEAM THEM SLOWLY […]

RACK OF LAMB

Published by

THIS YEAR INSTEAD OF PRIME RIB, I DECIDED TO SERVE RACK OF COLORADO LAMB.  LIKE NEW ZEALAND OR, EVEN BETTER, ICELANDIC LAMB, COLORADO LAMB IS MILD BUT FLAVORFUL.  A MUSTARD AND HERB COATING AND A THIN LAYER OF BREADCRUMBS FRAMES THE PINK SUCCULENCE OF THE MEAT.  I SERVED THE LAMB WITH BROCCOLINI WITH HOLLANDAISE AND BAKED […]

TRI-TIP WITH MUSHROOM SAUCE

Published by

TRI-TIP IS THE LOWER PART OF THE SIRLOIN, LEANER BUT EQUALLY FLAVORFUL AND CONSIDERABLY CHEAPER.  PAN-COOKED, WITH A CLASSIC FRENCH MUSHROOM AND RED WINE SAUCE, FLAVORED WITH THYME, TARRAGON, PARSLEY, AND CHIVES, IT’S SIMPLE TO MAKE AND GREAT WITH A MORE TIME-CONSUMING DISH SUCH AS POTATOES GRATIN.  BUT YOU COULD ALSO MAKE IT WITH ROASTED […]

I SPOTTED A CUT IN THE BUTCHER’S CASE LABELLED “COUNTRY STYLE BONELESS PORK RIBS”.  THEY WERE THICK AND MEATY WITH LITTLE FAT BUT PLENTY OF CONNECTIVE TISSUE; AN IDEAL BRAISING CUT.

PORK BELLY WITH FENNEL AND LEEKS

Published by

PORK BELLY IS WHAT BACON IS BEFORE IT IS CURED.  IF ALL THAT FAT SEENS DAUNTING, YOU’LL BE SURPRISED HOW MUCH OF IT MELTS OFF IN THE COOKING, LEAVING A RICH AND SUCCULENT SQUARE OF PORK. BRAISED WITH FENNEL, LEEKS AND FEW STAR ANISE FOR SEASONING, PORK BELLY IS NOTHING SHORT OF DELICIOUS.  SERVE WITH […]

PASTA WITH SAUSAGE AND PEPPERS

THIS IS AN EASY DISH TO MAKE, EITHER AHEAD OF TIME OR AT THE LAST MINUTE, FOR PARTY OF TWO OR A PARTY.  SINCE THE PRIME INGREDIENT IS ITALIAN SAUSAGE, MAKE SURE YOU GET THE BEST YOU CAN FIND.  (I BOUGHT MINE AT McCALL’S)
