Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Ground lamb kheema

    • jenmacgregor18 on May 04, 2020

      I omitted cinnamon & added a little bit of ground allspice--and used 80/20 ground beef. Fragrant and lovely.

  • Kimchi beef stew (Kimchi jjigae)

    • jenmacgregor18 on November 03, 2020

      I really didn't like the texture of the mushrooms--bordering on slimy for me. And I didn't care for the flavor at all either. It was too sour. I added a little more sweetener but just didn't work for me at all. Maybe if there was some starch, rice or noodles, to balance it out better.

  • Mexican pulled pork (Carnitas)

    • jenmacgregor18 on May 04, 2020

      The pork needs 30 minutes in dry rub before cooking. My only change was to add 1 packet of Goya Sazon and reduce salt to 1/2 tsp. Very good.

  • Pork chile verde

    • jenmacgregor18 on May 04, 2020

      I've made this twice now with changes based on what I have on hand. 1st time, I subbed 3T tomatillo salsa for tomatillos, canned hatch chiles for jalapenos and 2 anaheim for the poblano--and soy instead of fish sauce. I threw in some cooked diced sweet potatoes when done. 2nd time I used regular tomatillos. I think I prefer the tomatillo salsa over the regular tomatillos. And I removed most of the fat from the pork shoulder and ended up with very tender chunks of pork. Another keeper.

  • Cajun dirty rice

    • jenmacgregor18 on September 07, 2020

      Another very quick, delicious dinner for us from this book. I added some chopped green onion after cooking for some color.

  • Ground beef shawarma rice

    • jenmacgregor18 on August 25, 2020

      I used pre-shredded coleslaw mix. This was very quick 5 min pressure cook, 5 minute natural pressure release & then vent. It was not the most vibrant dish; but it had good flavor & was satisfying. I served with hot sauce. Maybe I'll have enough energy to make a salad next time.

  • Chicken shawarma

    • jenmacgregor18 on May 04, 2020

      A keeper. I omitted cinnamon & doubled the allspice. The chicken was fragrant and delicious. Lots of brothy onion sauce left over--to serve with rice.

  • Chicken adobo

    • jenmacgregor18 on May 04, 2020

      Another low time & effort investment recipe, with excellent results. Love it.

  • Garlic chicken

    • jenmacgregor18 on May 04, 2020

      The garlic is noticeable, but not raw or harsh. Might want to garnish with some chopped parsley. Gravy and chicken are lovely. I served with basmati & green beans.

  • Beef & vegetables in cilantro broth (Caldo de res)

    • jenmacgregor18 on September 22, 2020

      I omitted cabbage for D's preference. Added extra carrot & corn and used frozen corn kernels. I'm not a fan of cumin so I omitted and replaced with Goya's Total Sazon. The broth was surprisingly good, considering you're not adding bouillon or broth- just water. I really enjoyed this & will be making again.

  • Gochujang spiced pork (Dae ji bulgogi)

    • jenmacgregor18 on May 04, 2020

      Used 1 t of Korean ground pepper. Also, I missed instruction & sliced pork instead of cubing... This is wonderful! Sweet, but not overly so, and spice & saucy. And the pork was so tender. One of my favorite IP recipes so far.

    • Skamper on January 19, 2021

      This didn't really work for me. There was so much sauce that even using a slotted spoon to get the meat and not the sauce, the meat didn't caramelize in the pan. Flavor was decent but the pork became a bit mealy due to overcooking.

  • Pinto bean stew (Frijoles charros)

    • Skamper on June 26, 2020

      These were tasty, but a bit soupier than I expected, even after using my immersion blender. Next time reduce the water? They were good over Mexican rice. They would also be good with chorizo or other meat added.
