soups

Several drafts to publish of previous cooking fall under the category of soup so here they are in one posting. A vegetable fresh soup is similar in prep to a salad. Even with the hot weather it seems that a bowl of soup has a cooling effect.

Veggie broth with porcupine meatballs

The porcupine meatballs was from a recipe originally with a sweet tomato sauce.

Not too many ingredients in the meatballs let the flavor of the meat be present.

  • 1 lb. meat (I used pork for this recipe).
  • 3/4 cup jasmine rice
  • 1 egg
  • 3 green onion minced
  • 1 tsp. fresh garlic
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed
  • 1/2 tsp. coriander seeds

Minced up the meat and additives in a food processor, I gave the rice a quick buzz to break into smaller pieces. Jasmine rice not available. The minced meatball mix  was refrigerated as I prepare some vegetable broth.

Using a scooper, it’s easy to make the meatballs.

barbecue Satay

  • 2 pounds pork loin, cut into strips (or chicken)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons grated ginger root
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Place wooden skewers in a pan and cover with water to cover and let soak about an hour to prevent the skewers from burning during grilling. You could skip this step and broil the pork on a broiling pan instead.

Salt and pepper

Stock or water

Prepare the traditional stuffing recipe, saute the onion and celery with butter, the bread cubes were placed in an oven beforehand to dry out somewhat.

Mix and add enough stock to dampen the mixture. Add the sausage meat.

Place in a buttered pan and bake at about 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Good as a side dish or small meal with salad.

Egg and sausage

A food processor makes a quick task of making sausage meat, a bit of pork diced to facilitate chopping then add spices of what you like. I added some bacon for the fat content and other  spices and herbs. Stored in a plastic bag refrigerated at least overnight gives me fresh sausage meat to use in recipes or alone as a patty.

Pork Fried Rice

Easter dinner (yet to be posted), left us with leftovers, one of the advantages of hosting dinner is that when cooking a meal that you don’t often have , you allow for extra, both for giving out “take out ” containers to guests and having leftovers available during the week.

Diced pork from a crown roast was sauteed to brown and reserved. Add one cup of rice to a heavy skillet along with a bit of oil and shallots. Stir to coat rice and cook shallot slightly.

With heat at high, add 2 cups broth, stock or whatever to skillet. Let the mixture boil uncovered about 5 minutes till most of the broth dissipates. Sprinkle soy sauce over rice mixture till your satisfied with the taste and color. I add a bit of dried red pepper flakes here.

Depending with the type of rice continue cooking over low heat a few more minutes or shut the flame down and cover. Go do something else for about 15 minutes.

I just put the diced pork on a plate and plated the rice over it. IMG_9948

Perhaps if i wasn’t so hungry I would have added some celery and onions.
