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…

MAY ROUND-UP

MAY ROUND-UP

My goodness this month went fast!   We’ve been so busy dividing our time amongst getting the boat ready for her spring splash, preparing for guests and tending to getting our new-to-us gardens cleaned up that it’s left little time for anything else. I did take the time though to put together a list of your favourite Galley Kat recipes for the month of May. Simply click on the caption of each image for the recipe link. First way at…

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…

PEPPER BACON

PEPPER BACON

Oh my, but this was good!  I made a batch of this pepper bacon and before it was barely cooled I had consumed or rather inhaled at least half of it.  Sadly this was all that remained from one pound of bacon.  Seven slices.  I made a special trip back to the market for another package.  Bacon addicts anonymous should be notified. I think I’ve demonstrated how good it is on its own but added to a spicy grilled cheese…

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…

GRILLED BACON-WRAPPED PORK TENDERLOIN BITES

GRILLED BACON-WRAPPED PORK TENDERLOIN BITES

Missing my land-based Friday happy hours. The one day of the week that was a no-cook zone.  I could prepare things in advance but the whole idea was to create a no fuss, easy on the Galley Kat end of the week kind of dinner when we both got home from work.  Sometimes I would get a little carried away (who me?) with new recipes to try but it was that one sacred day…no not Sunday….sacred in the sense that…

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…

TASTY CARNITAS with ROASTED CORN SALSA

TASTY CARNITAS with ROASTED CORN SALSA

When Captain makes a request for something specific from the galley, the Kat does her best to comply.  Francois has been asking for pulled pork anything for some time now so tonight I broke out the pressure cooker to assuage his cravings.  The important thing to remember is that the cut of meat has to be a rather fatty one.  I’ve tried to make pulled pork with tenderloin before and the results were a bit dry.  You can always fudge…

IRISH WHISKEY GRILLED BABY BACK RIBS

IRISH WHISKEY GRILLED BABY BACK RIBS

This one is far too good not to share.  You could use your own fave barbecue sauce but if you don’t mind simmering up this amazing mixture of tangy spicy rich thick sauce, please do feel free to use over and over and over again.  At the beginning of each season I make up a batch and bring it onboard.  Two cups of this sauce goes a long way, keeps well refrigerated and is great slapped on not only ribs…
