Carnitas

Carnitas by Sergio Hernandez

Carnitas are the Mexican version of pulled pork. Braised first in a spicy sauce, pork shoulder is slow cooked until so tender the meat just shreds easily with a fork, then it's roasted at high heat to make crispy browned bits full of flavor.

Spicy Coconut Chicken Curry

Spicy Coconut Chicken Curry by John Spottiswood

This is more of an Indian than Thai curry, and has a condensed, pungent sauce. It is unusual and really wonderful. Curries are hit or miss with our kids, but they all loved this one (except for the peas...which meant more for me!) We served this with a brown/white rice mix and steamed brocco-flower. The sauce on this is so pungent…

Barbacoa De Cabeza

Barbacoa De Cabeza by Sergio Hernandez

Barbacoa de Cabeza is a slow cooked dish prepared with parts from the head of a cow, such as the cheeks. Popular in South Texas, I've adapted the dish to be cooked using your Slow Cooker, Pressure Cooker, or Smoker/Oven Combo to create this tasty dish.

Quick Meat Curry

Quick Meat Curry by John Spottiswood

I've been looking for recipes from Indian-American moms who love the rich flavors of Indian food but who need to get meals on the table quickly. So I'm really enjoying the book Saffron to Sassafras written by the Indian Women's Association of Louisiana.in Baton Rouge. There is nothing original about this simple recipe except the…

St. Patrick's Day Beef Stew with Guinness

St. Patrick's Day Beef Stew with Guinness by John Spottiswood

This is a great Beef Stew adapted from a recipe by Margaret Johnson. We doubled the recipe, used about half the butter, and added plenty of salt and black pepper. We also cooked it about 5 hours ahead of time and let it sit in the pot for another 3 hours after it was done cooking. It was awesome.

Pasta a risotto (Risotto-style Pasta)

Pasta a risotto (Risotto-style Pasta) by Frank Fariello

One of the guilty pleasures that I have never, up to now, revealed to a living soul is my penchant for late-night pasta snacks. But not just any pasta, but pastina of the kind usually used for soups, cooked in just enough liquid (usually a mixture of water and milk) so that by the time the liquid has almost evaporated, the pasta if…

Polenta con salsicce e spuntature

Polenta con salsicce e spuntature by Frank Fariello

Rome is not especially known for its love of polenta, perhaps because its winters are relatively mild compared with those up in true polenta country skirting the southern rim of the Alps, but there is one polenta dish you are bound to find if you visit Rome in the cold weather months, polenta with sausages and spareribs simmered in…

Butter Chicken - Chicken Makhani

Butter Chicken - Chicken Makhani by John Spottiswood

My kids love Chicken Makhani (Butter Chicken) and Chicken Tikka Masala whenever we go to an Indian buffet. So we tried replicating it at home. It's not a difficult dish to make once you have all the ingredients, and the results are delicious! It also gains flavor in your refrigerator over the next few days, so it's great for…

Chicken and Eggplant Stew

Chicken and Eggplant Stew by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe was given to me by my good friend Brian Bedrosian. He raved about it, so we made it last night. It was very tasty. Our kids all ate second helpings and we ended up with nothing left! I altered his ingredients just slightly, and show that in parenthesis below. We served this over a simple bulgur pilaf made with half…
