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…

SHEPHERD’S PIE POUTINE with BEER GRAVY

SHEPHERD’S PIE POUTINE with BEER GRAVY

Now before you go all judgey on me and say that real poutine is fries, gravy and cheese curd…period!, I happen to know after living almost twenty years in Frenchland (Quebec) , there are many ways to skin a poutine.  A gazillion ways! For me, this whole poutine thing started two years ago when we sailed our boat R.E.D. to the Gaspe area of the Saint Lawrence River from Montreal (sailingred).  One of our most memorable stops was Tadoussac where…

SMASHED CHEESE BURGERS

SMASHED CHEESE BURGERS

This next post is more about technique than recipe. You take a pound of ground beef, sauce it up with your fave barbecue sauce, form it into balls then smash the heck out of it with a spatuala.  Got your interest yet? Oh, yeah, then you flip it, top with cheese and stack the other two burgers on top. Looking good isn’t it all steamy and melty? Plop them onto a  couple of toasted buns and you’re ready to bite…

APRICOT GINGER BARBECUE SAUCE

APRICOT GINGER BARBECUE SAUCE

What to do when you’re moving and want to clear out some cupboards.  You make barbecue sauce. I had one jar of unopened apricot preserves, 4 lonely garlic cloves, and 2″ length of fresh ginger and some golden corn syrup (which I never use any more but has been hanging around forever because unpasteurized honey is now my go to sweetener of choice). A few tablespoons of soya sauce were left in my Bragg Aminos bottle and a slurp of…

APPLESAUCE MEATLOAF

APPLESAUCE MEATLOAF

Ah, the versatility of the lowly meatloaf! So many ways to dress it up.  So many different ways to season.   It shows up quite often in my galley, providing variety, using different types of meats and oh, those leftovers.  The one pictured below gave up the basics with slices of bacon-wrapped deliciousness, followed by meatloaf sandwiches the next day and a bonus day of meatloaf and potato soup. Recipe here The next one, up to now, has been Captain’s…

SALISBURY STEAK (SLOW COOKER)

SALISBURY STEAK (SLOW COOKER)

This was one of those ‘show stopper’ dinners.  Not at all a gourmet-ish type of meal, made with lowly ground beef and a simple gravy, yet somehow when we sat down to dine and took that first bite….wow!  The flavour of the gravy was amazing, the beef patties were surprisingly tender and that I had walked away four hours earlier to do other things made it such a treat. Instead of using a packaged gravy mix, I made my own….

PHILLY CHEESE STEAK

PHILLY CHEESE STEAK

Although a lot of our meals are vegetarian, even vegan, we are anything but against animal protein.  And there are times when I actually crave a good feed of steak.  Today is that day. This will make an excellent boat meal once we are back on the water.  I even used one of our galley cooking pans to sauté the onions, pepper and mushrooms. Next, a healthy sprinkling of salt and pepper for the beef. And finally a little stir…

STOVE TOP MEATLOAF (4 recipes in 1)

You might be thinking ‘oh yeah another meatloaf recipe’.  You’re right in that practically everyone has a fave meatloaf recipe.  But this post (as with all of my others) is more about versatility for folks like us who spend a whole lot of time in tiny spaces and especially for me as chief Galley Kat, cooking in wee spaces with minimal resources, next to no counter space, a hand pump sink to wash up, a one burner alcohol stove to…
