Directions for Chicken Marination:
1. In a bowl add chicken, egg, corn flour, black pepper, soy sauce, salt, oil and mix well. Let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
2. In a wok ( or fry pan) heat oil and add marinated chicken, fry it fully cooked and golden brown in color. Set aside.

5. Now add capsicum, carrot, onion and cook for 1-2 minutes.
6. Now add cooked chicken, boiled macaroni and mix well. Cook until chicken is well coated in sauce. Adjust if necessary with the addition of more of the macaroni water.
7. Sprinkle green onion on top and serve.
Preparation time: 10-15 mins
Cooking time: 25-30 mins
Serving: 3-4

Prepared ingredients, I use shredded carrots ( usually shred a pound or 2 of carrots and store them in the fridge so carrot can easily be incorporated into many recipes)
macaroni heat sinks are boiled and ready
Heating up the skillet
Starting the frying process of the chicken, I use quad blend pepper freshly ground.
getting the crisp on !
remove from the pan
boil up the sauce
Add the prepared veggies, mix in and heat, don’t over cook , leave some crunch

Add the chicken and the macaroni to the pan, heat through
mix and heat thoroughly

stuffed eggplant

I’ve prepared eggplant before, mainly sliced into about 1 inch slices and prepared.

A different method this time. Basically sliced lengthwise, scoop out some of the interior leaving a shell (x2).

Prepare your favorite stuffing with the removed eggplant diced.

Sparing the details, such as peeling the eggplant, and salting and draining etc, precook the shells in an oven.

Add the stuffing to the shells and baked again till cooked through and soft.

Not the most appetizing pictures of the finished product but similar to a pizza with an eggplant crust.

the shells before baking
prepped ingredients and stuffing preparation
pre baking the shells
A small amount of cooked rice added with sauteed onion,diced green pepper and celery along with seasoning.Later, (not shown) add tomato sauce, diced, cooked sausage. spoon into shells, top with sliced mozzarella cheese.
The finished meal , Placing one of the shelves at the upper most position results in a broiler effect if you like the eggplant a bit more well done. Oven temp was about 350 degrees F Timing was by eye.

Chicken with wine

 

Catching up on some recent meals to post.

An easy recipe for a classic way to prepare chicken. One of the many adaptations of coq au vin. I won’t post the recipe as there are so many variations. Basically a braised chicken with wine.

chicken croquette

My version , a chicken meatball with a flour, egg wash and cracker coating . Another use of the vortex oven. Served with a tomato sauce and pasta.

Making them a bit smaller and using toothpicks would make a great appetizer to serve with different dipping sauces.

3 bean chili with smoked chicken

It started out as a quick search on the Instant Pot app for chili, Have plenty of dried beans in stock, a quick pressure cooker meal means I didn’t have a long soaking and boiling process ahead for a meal within an hour. I found a recipe for a 3 bean chili jar recipe. Remember when the jar recipes were all the rage for gifts ! Still easy to do for your own meal kits.

Pinto, white and black beans, like maybe a 1/4 cup each ,a can of chopped tomatoes, some tomato paste and a bit over leftover condensed tomato soup. The spice list was long, cumin seeds, coriander, dried hot peppers just to name a few. Chopped onions and garlic, celery and carrot to round out the flavor and a toss of frozen corn . Saute as usual add all else. Top off with veggie stock. Seal, set and be back later.

about 50 minutes later

img_20200116_192857

start the plate with a layer of smoked chicken thighs 

img_20200116_192921

add the 3 bean chili…

img_20200116_193132

top with shredded cheese and chips,

img_20200116_193330

a glass of dark home brew, next time a real light or a lime hard seltzer would be better fro contrast, or possibly a fruit shandy . The chili and the smoked chicken was fantastic.

broiled tomato with couscous

Fresh tomatoes from the yard have been a staple here this summer and  fall , I’ll try to preserve some for the winter but will miss them.

Basically short on pictures here but you get the idea, a simple meal in a sense you have pasta and sauce deconstructed . I seasoned towards Italian, oregano, parsley, dried hot pepper flakes and thyme etc. 2 variety of tomatoes. Smashed garlic and sliced onions a bit of salt and pepper blend.

Crank up the broiler, get the cast iron, you’ll want to blacken the tomato mixture with a bit of a char..   toss once or twice….

couscous, easy and fast to cook, plate some up

Austrian beef stew with paprika and Caraway.

Here’s one from Milk Street. Paprika gives a lot of flavor to dishes, probably not used often enough. Good for the lentils recipe that is now a often cooked dish. I usually just buy Chuck beef. More versatile, can be ground for burgers, meat loaf, used for soups, stir fry etc.

Here we go! Season the beef with paprika. Saute the onions in the butter and salt ,add the Caraway and flour. Add more paprika ,cook then add broth. Add the beef, seasonings. Bring to a boil then cover and place in oven (or microwave oven, low setting) for 2 hours. If you like the beef with a bit of chew, then less time. Remove from oven and cook uncovered for another hour till the beef is tender. (Mine was cooked a lot less time). Add a bit of vinegar and dill. Serve with sour cream, I had a side of broccoli and barley.

A different spin on the common beef stew. Very good!

Here’s the measurements, I divided it to about a fifth.

5 lbs stew beef. ( I would go with lamb !)

6 tablespoons sweet paprika, divided.

2 cups beef broth

1/4 cup tomato paste

4 tablespoons butter

1 large yellow onion

2 tablespoons Caraway seeds

1/3 cup all purpose flour

1 tablespoon Hungarian hot paprika

3 Bay leafs

2 tablespoons marjoram

1/4 cup finely chopped dill

1 tablespoon vinegar

Sour cream
