Korean Tacos

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

The LA based Kogi BBQ Truck, serving Korean Tacos, is so famous these days, we hear about it in New York. Sadly, it doesn’t seem like they’re hitting the big apple any time soon. But, I have received a message from a group of guys that are going to be launching their own Korean Taco […]

Cumin Scented Pickled Beets

Thursday, July 9, 2009

Beets have a natural sweetness to them that makes them perfect for pickling, becoming sweet and sour. It’s the perfect salad topper, relish for meat, or if you like tart stuff as much as I do, you’ll just snack on this all by itself. I used Chioggia beets, which have such pretty patterns, but feel […]

Curry Chickpea Fries

Sunday, June 28, 2009

This week’s Weekend Shout out is to Sara at Sara’s Kitchen. I’ve had her post on Chickpea Fries bookmarked since February (at least it’s from this year). The fancy name for these is Panisses, and I spotted a recipe on David Lebovtiz’s blog as well. Since I love fries, you can get me to try […]

Fiesta Egg Roll

Sunday, June 21, 2009

For our Reader’s Choice: Egg Roll, you voted and the Black Bean Burrito Roll won. I changed the name but it’s basically the same concept. It has a couple of different components, so feel free to just use parts of this recipe. The Chipotle Rice that Lon made, is a nice side dish with some […]

Banh Mi Burgers

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Since I made the Carrot and Daikon Slaw, I’ve been anticipating a Banh Mi Sandwich, but when I started making dinner, I had a wild craving for some juicy red meat. The compromise was a Bahn Mi Burger. There’s no way that could be bad right? Not only was it not bad, Lon and I […]

Grilled King Oyster Mushrooms

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

My friend Angie gave me a bottle of Ume Plum vinegar, asking me to figure out what to do with it. I’ve let this assignment sit on the back burner for a while, not really on purpose, but maybe there was some subconscious procrastination. I tasted the vinegar alone and it’s very salty compared to […]

Chili Mango Sauce

Monday, May 25, 2009

Shopping in Flushing last week I saw two ingredients that inspired me.  The first was lemongrass, I picked up a few spears; the second was fresh cayenne pepper, I bought a few beautiful chilies.

For some reason, I had it in my head that these had to be combined with mango, so Jessica picked up a […]

Asian-Style Pork Barbecue and Hot Slaw Sandwich

Saturday, May 23, 2009

We had pork left over in our fridge.  When I looked at it, I kept envisioning some type of Asian-inspire barbecue sandwich.  We had some Coke left over from a recent party and I thought about how some Korean mamas marinate beef in the sugary soda.  I wanted the crisp caramelization found in Korean barbecue, […]

Gado Gado with Beef

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Whenever I have left-over steak, it becomes a steak salad or steak sandwich. The reincarnation must be something cold because I cannot stand reheating beef. I want it nice and rare or not at all. The other day, Caroline mentioned Gado Gado in a comment so it was fresh in my mind and I was […]

Scallion-Garlic Bread

Saturday, April 4, 2009

To accompany dinner last night, I put together a tasty Scallion-Garlic Bread. It came out delicious, but a big part of that was due to the delicious bread that we picked up at Costco.
