If you’ve been reading my posts recently, you knew this was coming. I did debone a 15 lb turkey and successfully rolled and roasted it. Very pleasantly surprised, especially since my oven has ruined several recent holidays by refusing to … Continue reading Turkey Roll with Cranberry, Walnut, Sausage Stuffing
I’m using coconut two ways in this dish, coconut flour to bread the pheasant chunks, and coconut milk to cook the rice. You could make the same dish with chicken or turkey or pork cut in strips, but as I … Continue reading Crispy Orange-Ginger Coconut Pheasant
Find the recipe for these vegetable egg rolls here: For the Love of Cooking » Baked Vegetable Egg Rolls. The only thing I did differently was to use Napa cabbage instead of savoy. It looked too easy, but I really … Continue reading For the Love of Cooking » Baked Vegetable Egg Rolls
I’m using the ubiquitous copycat recipe for Mongolian Beef that presumes to replicate a recipe from the P. F. Chang restaurant (to which I have never been), but with pheasant breasts. This is not a low sugar version, but I … Continue reading Mongolian Pheasant
If you try to avoid carbs in your diet, and especially that ridiculously high-glycemic white potato that is right up there with pure sugar, you are probably familiar with cauliflower as a low-carb substitute for potatoes, especially mashed with a … Continue reading Cauliflower Bacon Gratin
The squash started it all. There was a luscious display of the delicate little things that I couldn’t resist, as I love winter squash. I’ve been looking at the one I bought for a few days and wondering what to … Continue reading Delicata Squash and Deconstructed Pork Dumplings
This recipe is adapted from Emeril Lagasse’s “Korean-Style Pork Wraps with Chili Sauce” from 2006. I don’t make it as often as my husband would like, but I guess that keeps it special. It isn’t hard to make, but you do have to make both a marinade and a chili sauce, and the lettuce leaves are a pain to deal with. I suggest making both the marinade and sauce in advance, so you’re not trying to do all the chopping and measuring and mixing right before dinnertime. It also helps if you have a rice cooker. If you work it out right, you could throw this together after a day of working, because the actual cooking time is brief—like 5 minutes! Could you marinate the pork tenderloin the night before or in the morning? I don’t see why not.
Before pork tenderloins got into the public consciousness, they weren’t easy to find, but when you did find them, they were well trimmed. Now that they are everywhere, butchers stopped trimming them as well, so you need to do a little trimming of your own, which adds time to your preparation. Watch this quick video on how to trim the tenderloin.
