QUICK KOREAN-STYLE FRIED RICE

QUICK KOREAN-STYLE FRIED RICE

Hi there from your absent Galley Kat.  We’ve been so busy here in our little home by the sea that I can barely turn around before another round of guests from away arrive.  I’ve been told to stop being such a good Welcome to Nova Scotia ambassador but when you’re so much in love with living in paradise it’s really hard for me to stop shouting it from the roof tops. I know that in my last post (recipe here:Easy…

EASY KOREAN-STYLE CHICKEN and BROCCOLI

EASY KOREAN-STYLE CHICKEN and BROCCOLI

Hi there my Galley Peeps.  I’m so glad you dropped by for a visit today.   I’m cooking up a delicious Korean meal for you.  Some very intense spice going on here but it’s all balanced nicely with crunchy cucumber pickles, steamed broccoli, a pile of fluffy basmati rice (I used the brown version this time) all nestled beside some tasty sautéed ground chicken. The Korean spice isn’t really over the top and you can add or subtract the amount…

2018 RECIPE REVIEW

2018 RECIPE REVIEW

My Happy New Year greeting is a little late, I know.  Stuff seems to always get in the way and before I realize it another month has passed.  I have been busy though, trying very hard to keep my resolutions and am proud of what has been achieved so far.  Decluttering with minimalizing my possessions and consistent exercising tops the list…which is probably why blogging and recipe development have been pushed aside. Curious about how the year went as far…

APRIL ROUND-UP

APRIL ROUND-UP

It’s surprising to me sometimes what you folks are looking for when you search for Galley Kat recipes.  Sometimes if runs the line of special holidays as it did last month. Lots and lots of Irish/Saint Patrick’s Day hits.  And I shouldn’t be surprised at the delicious Easter Trifle because, well, it was Easter and it is a truly easy dessert. But why Batsaria received almost as many search hits as the trifle was a stunner.  Don’t get me wrong….

DUCK SOUP

DUCK SOUP

Remember Francois’ duck-in-a-bag post from several days ago? (recipe link here in case you missed it) WELL!….I stripped that baby of it’s meat, then plopped the carcass, seasonings and veggies into my slow cooker and boiled the bejesus out of it for 18 hours.  Then I carefully pulled the remains of juicy bits of meat from the bones.  It’s surprising what I harvested…enough meat for 2 more meals and 8 cups of bone broth.  Frugal little Galley Kat! So for…

DECONSTRUCTED EGG ROLLS (stove top version)

DECONSTRUCTED EGG ROLLS (stove top version)

What to cook for dinner when time is tight and you’re craving something tasty, quick and Asian?  To make this one quicker I cut out the middle man so to speak….the egg roll wrappers.  I’ve made Deconstructed Egg Rolls before but in the pressure cooker (link to recipe below) but we are in the process of moving land homes and have left my pressure cooker on the boat.  And we got caught in Montreal traffic and Francois had his weekly…

LION’S HEAD MEATBALLS

LION’S HEAD MEATBALLS

I have a very easy tasty Asian inspired  meal for you Galley Peeps.  Pork meatballs so full of flavour and tender cooked on a bed of greens in my Omnia stove top oven but you could easily make in a covered wok or baking dish. Don’t be thrown off by how ‘soupy’ the meat mixture is.  It came together very well once browned on each side and produced such juicy  results. If you wish, substitute Chinese cabbage roughly chopped for…

GINGER POACHED EGG SOUP

GINGER POACHED EGG SOUP

Today’s recipe qualifies as an easy meatless meal. Lots of garlic, broth and ginger for the base. Eggs and bok choy filled in the rest to give us a well-rounded nutritious supper.   I used vegetable broth but chicken or beef broth would add extra dimension.  I’ve also used a spoonful or two of miso paste in the past for that added immunity-probiotic boost. Loosen the miso with a bit of broth or water then stir in at the end…

DECONSTRUCTED EGG ROLLS with SWEET and SOUR SAUCE

DECONSTRUCTED EGG ROLLS with SWEET and SOUR SAUCE

More and more I’m appreciating the beauty of using my pressure cooker.  A little sauté time and one minute under pressure and bang we were ready to eat.  In fact, it took less time than making the sweet and sour sauce and that took just five minutes. I kept half the cabbage slaw to add after pressure to give a little extra crunch to the mixture. We do love egg rolls but that we could enjoy these minus the extra…
