Believe it or not, I've never done a Green Bean Casserole. It's just a thing. I always bring something like homemade buns or dessert to any potluck event, unless I am doing the main dish, and someone else always shows up with something au gratin. So if you want a great tasting, creamy, cheesy, vegetable dish for your next potluck, or something amazing to serve at Thanksgiving, try this Green Bean Casserole. I mean it. Right now. Hop to it people!
Moist turkeys are the bane of many's existence. Really, they can't cook a turkey to save their souls, not even a butterball! That's where I come in. Butter Injected Rotisserie Turkey is super easy, very tasty and just plain awesome. Prep time is nearly non-existent, and it should only take about 20 minutes per pound. Try it this Thanksgiving. You already have the stuff to make it in your pantry.
I've said it before and I will say it again. If you don't like brusseles sprouts, you're cookin' 'em wrong. These Maple Sriracha Glazed Brussels Sprouts are ridiculous. They're kind of sticky, sort of sweet, a little bit spicy, and loads of good. They are super easy to prep and have on the table.
I've seen sweet potato casserole on many thanksgiving tables, but I wanted to make myself and my guests feel special by making my own Individual Sweet Potato Casserole. I seasoned them unexpectedly with cinnamon and chili powder to give them something extra special.
I haven't stuffed a pepper in a while, and I was feeling particularly lazy in the veggie department that day. SO for lunch, instead of making a stir fry, I made a Butter Chicken Stuffed Pepper. Sweet and crunchy-ish pepper filled with, I have to say, one of the most delicious ways to serve chicken on the planet, and grilled to scrumptious perfection. Serve this on its own or on a bed of rice for a slightly fancy take on Butter Chicken.
A friend of mine introduced me to the concept of curry. In his household, he is the master of curry, making it at least twice a week. So when I was doing a barbecue luncheon for him, I thought I should try to incorporate his favorite flavors into something for the grill. These Spicy Curry Burgers ended up being great, beefy burgers with some spicy heat and a real hit of that curry flavor.
Talking food one day, someone mentioned to me that they had a craving for Butter Chicken, an Indian dish that I had never tried. Instantly curious, I searched the web for a simple version of the recipe. None of them mentioned grilling, but all wanted it to be baked in a covered dish. I have to be different so instantly I was thinking of ways to make this delicious recipe on the grill. I came up with this and it was very delicious.
I was worried about finding all of the spices and the cheesecloth. No need to fret at all. If you go to a larger grocery store, one that has a fresh market and deli, you should be able to find the cheesecloth with the tea-towels. As for the spices, I found the ones I needed almost all side by side! As long as you have access to a store with a bulk section or a bulk dry goods store, you should be fine. The curry paste was in the International/Asian section. If you can’t find paste, you can substitute curry powder, and make it into a paste with water.
I've never done short ribs before. Considering that, I decided to buy some short ribs at the supermarket and make Galbi, Korean BBQ Short Ribs. I marinated the ribs overnight and grilled them up with great success. They were demolished in no time.
As a going away-have to celebrate-birthday-need dessert for this event thing, I found a recipe for Salted Maple Pecan Bars. I just had to put a grill-spin on it. Okay, so there were five and a half of us (one guy had one piece and disappeared somewhere) and we demolished the 9 x 13-inch tray that I made. These were so good that I had to make them again two days later. So good that when asked for seconds from someone, I lied and said that they were all gone. Yeah. THAT kind of good.
It's always good to try something different. That is what I did with this recipe. First, I purchased a cut of steak that I don't often get. The flank steak is usually mis-cooked and often tough and not so great. But like many things, just needs some tender loving care. Flank is porous and benefits from the marinade treatment. The other thing I tried was some different photography techniques. I'm not sure I like how the dark and moody thing came out. But the photos make the food look tasty. I guess that's what matters.
