My Dry Rub

My Dry Rub by Amos Miller

Its that time of year when the barbecue hits the grills & smokers and so I thought I'd post my favorite dry rub recipe. I only use this rub & a variation of it on pork products and It is well- liked. Remember that you want to wash & pat your meats dry before you apply a rub, then add rub to one side, wait about 10 minutes, then…

Moussaka Mediterraneaneo

Moussaka Mediterraneaneo by Amos Miller

I absolutely love moussakas wherever I find the dish - Greek, Turkish, Arab, Italian - it's common throughout the Mediterranean region. There are myriad variations, of course - just like bread differs, country to country, dishes made of common ingredients differ. One of my favorite recipes is found in Claudia Roden's 'The New Book…

Keema Matar Recipe (Mutton Mince with Peas)

Keema Matar Recipe (Mutton Mince with Peas) by Hina Gujral

Keema Matar Recipe is the spicy, bold mutton mince curry embellished with fresh green peas. Keema Matar is undoubtedly one of our favorite mutton curries from the days when I could not even spell the word keema. The morsel of soft and pillowy Mughlai breads dipped in piquant curry burst with flavors in the mouth. There is a kind of…

Beef Fajita Best Marinade

Beef Fajita Best Marinade by Amos Miller

This is fast, simple and super delicious! You should have a very hot (very) cast iron griddle or pan to do this right. I preheat the griddle and simultaneously heat a cast iron serving dish so it goes to table with that distinctive 'sizzle'. Be sure to cut the meat, after it has rested, across the grain and as thin as you can. This…

Lamb Meatball and Fava Bean Tagine / Morocco by Amos Miller

This is truly a hand-crafted meal - it takes time. I know that only the most devoted will make this. But it is nothing short of spectacular and was my favorite Spring dish. I'd eat it weekly. This is how I recall Mina made for me when I lived in Marrakech. I'm sharing it just because it is a personal favorite and, for guests,…

Uncle Sidney's Red Beans

Uncle Sidney's Red Beans by Amos Miller

There are two ways to go here: smoked meats (sausage, rib tips, neck bones, ham, country bacon), OR pickled meat. Either way, you'll obtain a rich flavor profile and a satisfying meal. One, warm, soft, and smokey; one tangy, slightly sharp, sort of barbeque-y, but it's always PORK and beans in the end.. My culinary mentor, whom I…

File Gumbo / Chez Helene

File Gumbo / Chez Helene by Amos Miller

The late Chef Austin Leslie left a brilliant legacy of Creole dishes and he helped form my approach to the cuisine of NOLA. I follow no other recipe than the one he left me. When a dish is perfect, why stray? Fresh ingredients will tell the tale. Now, as my mentor Paula Wolfert admonishes: "Relax and follow the recipe"!

Superfast Summer Sauce for ?

Superfast Summer Sauce for ? by Amos Miller

It's hot, you're hungry, you don't want to spend more than a few minutes at the stove. You have a main dish in mind. Try this. I use this quick sauce on a pasta, on grilled veggies, on a seared or grilled thin cut of meat - even on shrimp. Use your imagination! The key is that ALL ingredients hit the hot oil at the same time.…
