POT-AU-FEU – #14 of 44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE

POT-AU-FEU – #14 of 44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE

‘Tis the time to revisit my “44 French Classic Meals You Need to Try Before You Die” (modified for my tiny Galley kitchen of course) Literally ‘pot on fire’ Pot-au-Few is a traditional French beef stew made with beef marrow bones and root veggies, which brings me to another thought I had for a series of posts… (I do love series don’t I?) Seasonal Eating and this post fits in nicely into the month of November, with chilly winds howling…

SWEDISH MEATBALLS

SWEDISH MEATBALLS

My love affair with all things Ikea continues…. we outfitted our boat cabin with handy Ikea items… we installed cupboards for storing boats gear in our land home… so why not further celebrate all things minimal, Swedish and Ikea with an easy Galley supper? My Mom used to make Swedish meatballs. I remember the juicy tender meatballs swimming in a wonderful rich creamy sauce as if it were yesterday. …but I don’t have her recipe.. not even sure she had…

PIRATE STEAK with COMPOUND BUTTER

PIRATE STEAK with COMPOUND BUTTER

ARRRR… Tonight we are grilling steak… pirate steak… sweet and sassy pirate steak… I normally don’t like anyone messing with my steak.. like my scotch…straight up with a splash of water… and with the steak… only a bit of salt and pepper. Since expanding our meat grilling experiences (see brining the chicken and the pork chops) I thought I would try a simple marinade… Rum and molasses with a feisty dash of chillis. The result was a crispy caramelized coating…

44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE – #5

44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE – #5

This rich veal stew can easily be modified for simple life on the water. Instead of the multitude of steps, I reduced this delicious dish to just a few. From a fairly lenghthy cooking process it was ready within 30 minutes. The secret is to use lean tender veal tenderloin, requiring minimal cooking time.   #5   R.E.D. BLANQUETTE DE VEAU (Creamy veal stew) serves 2 1/2 veal tenderloin, cut into 1″ pieces (about 2 cups meat cubes) 1/4 cup…

CORNED BEEF, CABBAGE & POTATO HASH

CORNED BEEF, CABBAGE & POTATO HASH

As we move closer to boating season I am starting to imagine more vividly returning to our little home on the water… We have a plan this year to remain onboard for six months, one month of which will be spent cruising what I call the Little Loop or what is more commonly referred to as the Golden Triangle. Meals for a good part of this trip will have to be simple keeping in mind that we won’t always have…

PRESSURE COOKER BEEF STROGANOFF

PRESSURE COOKER BEEF STROGANOFF

Sami from Cooking on a Boat (a boat related group I am a part of) posted a recipe today for what looks like a really simple recipe for beef stroganoff made in a crockpot. On R.E.D. an appliance like that would draw far too much power so thought I would try it out in the pressure cooker. First though I cooked the egg noodles in the pressure cooker for 5 minutes, drained and kept warm in my Kuhn Rikon Cook…

GRILLED STEAK w/ LEMON BUTTER, SALTED BAKED POTATO & ROASTED GARLIC

GRILLED STEAK w/ LEMON BUTTER, SALTED BAKED POTATO & ROASTED GARLIC

This whole meal was surprisingly simple and so delicious. …surprising because it could have been prepared in the most modest of galleys… Beginning with the ‘baked’ potatoes keep in mind there is no traditional oven in my little galley, or no microwave… …just a little one-burner alcohol stove and one Omnia Oven     Salted Baked Potatoes Scrub and half 2 medium sized potatoes Pour a small amount of EVO into a saucer and rub potato generously with the oil…
