Easy Tomato Sauce

easy tomato sauce

This is the kind of sauce I whip up when I need something quick for a simple pasta or homemade pizza. The ingredients are simple and easy to keep on hand, and once you’ve made it a couple times it becomes second nature-you’ll give…

Curry Udon with Beef

curry udon with steak

I have been exploring the world of Japanese cuisine recently with the help of a fabulous cookbook called Japanese Soul Cooking by Tadashi Ono and Harris Salat. Far beyond sushi and teriyaki, the book covers everything from Soba to tempura, and delivers a rich…

Jerk Chicken and Shrimp

I went out for lunch today and experienced an extremely underwhelming jerk halibut taco. Besides the fact that I only got about about 2 oz. of fish between two tacos, the seasoning was bland and the overall presentation was quite lackluster, so I decided…

Salty’s Skirt Steak Tacos

steak tacos

Salty is not much of a cook, but when it comes to grilling, the man loves his craft. He also loves his steak, so nothing makes him more eager to help than a delectably marinated piece of beef. Shake throws in her margaritas, I…

Citrus Beef with Sesame Soba Noodles

Chicken Paillard

Chicken Paillard

Chicken Paillard (pie-yard) might be spelled fancy, but it is an incredibly simple and endlessly versatile item. My favorite topping is a simply dressed salad, but this chicken can be used for everything from sandwiches to shortcut satay. You can also prep and freeze…

Beef Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff is classic Russian comfort food, but Americans seem to have happily adopted it into their repertoire as well. Although Stroganoff can be made out of cheaper cuts of meat, my butcher had a sale on tenderloin tails, so I decided to spoil…

Spatchcocked Chicken on Bread

Spatchcocking is my favorite chicken technique. Instead of roasting the bird whole, it is cut open and laid flat, maxing out the flavor and shortening the cooking time drastically. I prefer to smoke chicken on my Traeger, but this recipe also works on a…
