I call these "holiday" brussels sprouts, but they can be for any time of the year. It is just that the cranberries make them so festive, and the rich savory flavor of the ham combined with the sweetness of the cranberries makes a great complement to the slight bitterness of the sprouts. Serve this with a savory pork dish or roasted chicken breast.
Searing meat does not take a lot of oil. The key is a hot pan and to leave the meat alone. It seems that the pork is sticking to the pan, but as the proteins cook the meat will shrink slightly and the surface caramelizes. That is the point at which the pork will release from the pan. Turn it over and repeat. It requires patience and one technique is to shake the pan slightly. When the meat is ready to turn, it will shake away from being stuck to the pan.
This bean recipe is based on the Spanish homestyle beans called Poches. That's it, they are simply beans when you see them on the menu. Simple, flavorful, lightly herbed beans. They make the perfect complement to the smoky, sweet shrimp. The dish is good served cold the next day!
This is a rich balsamic sauce that is sweet, slightly salty and vinegary all at the same time. It blends well with the umami flavor of the roasted eggplant and both complement the creamy polenta.
It is a simple, easy weeknight meatless meal that is great for you and tastes great. I like to add a lot of pepper to the sauce. As the eggplant roasts the pepper mellows and blends well with the other flavors.
I have said this many times when writing this column: I just don't know why the category of frozen breakfast food exists. Breakfast is so easy that it seems silly to spend about three or four times as much money than you have to by pulling a package from the freezer and heating it in the microwave. It takes about the same amount of time to toast a slice of bread and scramble an egg. But there are more and more breakfast foods in the freezer case, leading me to believe that there is demand, so here we are reviewing a few more.
