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…

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…

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…

ASIAN-INSPIRED MEATBALLS with CUCUMBER SALAD

‘Tis the season filled with shopping, facing crowds, traffic.

This post is actually two recipes in one because sometimes Happy Hour is all that’s necessary if you offer all or most of…

LIME SHRIMP with UDON NOODLE

LIME SHRIMP with UDON NOODLE

This next recipe came about after a long day on the water when all I wanted to do was pour a glass of wine and kick back a bit.  You know those days when you ask your significant other what they would like for dinner and all you get is ‘surprise me’.  So I poured that wine and thought and came up with a tasty winner. So easy too.  Just a few ingredients: quick cooking shrimp, some udon noodles and…

DRAGON SAUCE

DRAGON SAUCE

Got another good one for you Galley Peeps.  It’s one of those really versatile Asian-inspired sauces that work well with meats, seafood, fish, with pasta or rice and is far too easy to make and has evolved from many trials to my now ‘tried and true’ formula. Tonight I did the full meal deal and made it fresh,  then made some breaded chicken nuggets, braised fresh bok choy and serve with some pressure cooker jasmine rice.  I mean, really, three…
