Venison or Elk and Apricot Mustard Sauce

Venison or Elk and Apricot Mustard Sauce by Amos Miller

As H.D. Thoreau said: "Simplify, simplify!" Time to share a favorite recipe, especially for my CES friend, Jed Gibbons, who asked for an idea for this cut of venison, and Nanette may like this, too. Gibbons, who is a heart-of-the-city dweller, is fortunate to have relatives who give him the outstanding wild meats - and thereby save…

Cider-Glazed Boneless Pork Loin Chops

Cider-Glazed Boneless Pork Loin Chops by Foodiewife

This excellent recipe comes from America’s Test Kitchen (Cook’s Illustrated). Boneless pork chops can easily be overcooked and tough. But, using a technique of searing them and then “poaching” the chops in a sauce of apple cider vinegar, apple cider, brown sugar and a little soy sauce and Dijon mustard the chops come out moist and…

We made this as one of the dishes at our annual stay at the Koehler Winery near in Los Olivos near Santa Barbara. Everything we made was delicious, but this might have been my favorite.

Pan Seared Sirloin Steaks with Sauteed Onions

Pan Seared Sirloin Steaks with Sauteed Onions by John Spottiswood

We don't eat a lot of steak, and when we do I normally grill it. My mom used to frequently serve pan seared steaks, generally cheaper cuts like sirloin or london broil. So I thought I'd give it a try and see if I could come up with something competitive with my grill. I started with a base recipe from Cook's Illustrated, and…

Oven Roasted Salmon w. Cauliflower & White Bean Sauté

Oven Roasted Salmon w. Cauliflower & White Bean Sauté by Yvonne Tally, Your Fit Gourmet

Wild salmon will be previously frozen at sea during the winter months. The salmon will still taste great but should be cooked the day of purchase and eaten within 1 day. I use salmon all year around but only purchase it at my neighborhood fish store, Whole Foods or any high end independent grocery store.

Seared Mahi Mahi w Rainbow Medley

Seared Mahi Mahi w Rainbow Medley by jason kim

For our fish Fridays, we got the kids some mahi-mahi fillets and simply seared them on the stove top. We also included a fresh rainbow medley of diced red and green bell peppers and mangoes for some sweetness, creating a natural sauce/neutralizer for the fish. The great thing about mahi-mahi is that they cook well either baked,…
