Hearty Winter Broth


It’s snowing this morning and while it’s considerably warmer than the last days, one still needs some good winter comfort food…

Stuffed Veal Breast


[Walter Potenza – straordinario Chef Italiano – has once again graciously agreed to share a recipe with us. It follows his original, except for one change to make it kosher. CS]

Stuffed Veal Breast

Photo by: Walter Potenza

Photo by: Chef Walter Potenza

Stuffing:

  • 1/3 cup fresh Italian parsley, washed and chopped
  • 4-6 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups Italian style bread crumbs
  • 1/3 teaspoon oregano flakes
  • 1/3 teaspoon basil flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • pinch of powdered sage or Bell Seasoning
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup Daiya Mozzarella Style Shreds (pareve/vegan)*
  • 1/4 cup black oil cured olives, pitted and finely chopped

Directions:

  1. Pour olive oil into a medium bowl. Add herbs, chopped garlic, and other stuffing ingredients except bread crumbs and cheese.
  2. Allow to sit 10 minutes to infuse the herbs.
  3. Stir in the cheese and bread crumbs. Mixture should be a consistency which allows you to make a smooth round ball out of the stuffing which doesn’t break apart and yet it should not be too liquid to hold this shape.
  4. If mixture is too dry, stir in a few tablespoons of hot water or chicken broth at a time until you’ve reached the right consistency.
  5. If mixture is too liquid, add a few tablespoons of bread crumbs.

Preparing the Veal:

  • 1 4-5 lb veal breast with pocket
  • olive oil spray
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • paprika
  • salt
  • pepper
  1. Have the butcher make a large pocket in the side of a 4-5 lb veal breast. Rinse the veal and dry. Open the pocket and pat on the stuffing, with the largest portion in the center. Close the pocket with wooden toothpicks, tie shut with kitchen twine, or simply leave as is.
  2. Brush or spray the veal breast thoroughly with olive oil spray. Sprinkle with with a light coating of garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper.
  3. Roast at 300°F degrees for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until tender and juice no longer runs pink, spraying every 45 minutes or so with olive oil spray.
  4. It’s better to slightly undercook this than to overcook, because if the veal is overcooked it will become tough and dry. If you suspect the veal is nearly cooked but hasn’t browned yet, spray with olive oil one last time, turn up the heat to 375°F and finish it for 10-15 minutes to brown.
  5. Sprinkle with a light dusting of paprika down the center and garnish with minced fresh Italian parsley.

Enjoy, gentle reader, enjoy!

Beef Salad with Mango


While you may not always have the time to prepare a hearty meal for the family, you can plan ahead thereby serving a nice feast that only took a short time to heat and serve. The following recipe is adapted from: Williams-Sonoma‘s FoodMadeFast: Make Ahead

Beef Salad with Mango

Detail of photo by: Bill Bettencourt, from Williams-Sonoma's FoodMadeFast: Make Ahead

Detail of photo by: Bill Bettencourt, from Williams-Sonoma‘s FoodMadeFast: Make Ahead, on page 68-69

Serves 4

Prepare a large roast and you’ll have enough extra beef for at least two more meals. The roast has a smokiness that enhances the flavor of a sweet and spicy salad, a beef hash and a spicy Thai curry.

Ingredients

  • 6 pounds shoulder roast, trimmed of excess fat
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Lime juice from 1 lime
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 mangos, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups (4 ounces) mixed greens
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint, slivered

Directions

  1. Roast the beef – Preheat the oven to 350 F. Season the beef generously with salt and pepper and place in a shallow roasting pan just large enough to hold it comfortably. Roast, tuning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the beef reads 130 F. for medium rare (about 80 minutes), or until the desired level of doneness. Transfer to a carving board and allow to rest for 10-15 minutes before carving.
  2. Assemble the salad – Thinly slice 4 portions of the beef, reserving the remaining beef for other meals .* Cut each slice into strips. In a large bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, lime zest, and juice. Whisk in the canola and sesame oils. Add the beef, mango, bell pepper, and shallot and toss evenly with the vinaigrette. Divide the greens among individual plates and top with the beef-mango mixture. Sprinkle with mint and serve.

Makes about 4 1/2 pounds of sliced or shredded beef total.

* Storage Tip

To store the remaining beef, let the roast cool to room temperature, wrap tightly in aluminum foil or plastic wrap, and refrigerate for up to 3 days. For the most succulent and tender results, do not slice the chilled beef until ready to serve. To slice, use a chef’s or other large, sharp knife, and thinly slice against the grain.

Enjoy, gentle reader, enjoy!

Hamburgers with Beets – Variation on a Theme


I always liked hamburgers, what carnivore doesn’t? I’m always on a quest to find new ways of making them, I was – therefore – pleasantly surprised with this delightful recipe (and photo) sent in by Ziva A. from Lakewood, NJ:

Hamburgers with Beets

hambger

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 3 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pound 7 ounces ground beef
  • 1 medium egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped capers
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped cooked beets
  • 2 tablespoons pareve sour cream (I use Tofutti brand)
  • 4 tablespoons margarine
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a skillet. Add the onion and cook over low hea, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, until softened
  2. Transfer the onion to a large bowl and add the ground beef, egg, wine vinegar, paprika and capers. Mix well with your hands. Add the beet and parve sour cream, season to taste with salt and pepper, mix well again. Shape the mixture into 4 patties.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons margarine with the remaining oil in the skillet. Add the hamburgers and cook over medium heat for 6 minutes on each side, or until well browned. Remove with a spatula and drain on paper towels.
  4. Melt the remaining margarine in a skillet. Break 2 eggs into separate cups and slide them into the skillet. Immediately collect the whites around the yolks with a spatula to keep them neat and separated. Cook until the whites have set but the yolks are still runny. Cook the remaining eggs the same way in the remaining margarine. Transfer the burgers to a warmed serving plate, top with the fried eggs and serve immediately.

Enjoy, gentle reader, enjoy!
