This is my riff on kimchee jjigae. It’s a salty, spicy, porky bowl of cabbage and broth goodness. Korean pork stew really. Easier and a bit more approachable than absolutely authentic kimchee jjigae.
Want the comfort of a nice pasta al forno but you don’t have time to make anything fancy? Baked pasta with sausage alfredo sauce is a fast way to get a fix. Simple. Fast. Easy. Sausage and a bit of crushed red chili kick the flavours up a notch. It’s an Italian spin on mac and cheese with pulled pork.
Korean style pork chops take about 5 minutes to prep and cook up in no time flat. A few ingredients, a quick marinade and your ready to go. Gochujang is the secret ingredient. It takes this recipe from run of the mill asian to something special.
Beef rogan josh is one of the first Indian curries I ever learned to cook. I got it from Madhur Jaffrey’s first book and I thought I was the cat’s meow. People raved. It became a house favourite. It was pretty good. But this is better. Much better.
Grill roasted leg of lamb is a great way to bring summer flavours to a wintery cut of meat. The Greeks know this. They have since about the beginning of time. Whole lamb on a spit over a fire is a Greek party classic. This is just as good – just on a smaller scale. Smoke kissed lamb seasoned simply with garlic and rosemary with a lemon jus. Hard to beat.
Indian restaurant vindaloo curry doesn’t have to be blow your head off spicy. It can be. Maybe it should be. But it doesn’t have to be. It can be a flavourful, hot, sour and tomato flavour bomb that lets you taste your dinner. Or it can be palate searing napalm. It’s your call and this recipe lets you do what you want.
