Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chicken tagine with apricots, butternut squash and spinach

    • Jane on June 08, 2020

      I loved this and will definitely be making again. I usually have all these ingredients on hand though in these days of quarantine cooking I had to sub preserved lemon for the olives and I didn't have cilantro for on top. Still very good!

    • Lsblackburn1 on February 01, 2021

      Served this over couscous for a very tasty meal. I totally forgot to add the spinach and didn’t miss it at all. The only thing I might try differently next time would be to roast the squash before adding it- boiled squash is much less delicious than roasted IMHO.

  • Peruvian pesto (Tallarines verdes)

    • Cheri on August 19, 2022

      The proportions are off in this one. Way too much pesto, mine was quite thick. I liked the flavor. Added sauted cherry peppers, zucchini, broccoli and yellow squash which helped add interest. Not sure I would repeat, maybe. Big dose of veggies.

  • Singapore chicken satay

    • chawkins on August 22, 2020

      Very good. The cooking time was perfect. I subbed lemon juice for the rice vinegar. I used a ceramic ginger grater to grate both the ginger and the garlic, my sauce was smooth, not chunky as shown. Served with coconut-ginger rice

  • Coconut-ginger rice

    • chawkins on August 22, 2020

      Perfect liquid to rice ratio. I don’t have coconut oil, so just use olive oil. The lemongrass and ginger and even the coconut taste were all subtle.

  • Stir-fried chicken with snap peas and basil

    • clkandel on May 21, 2022

      Simple, fast, and tasty!

  • Chinese chili-and-scallion noodles

    • sarahawker on September 24, 2020

      This was a big hit. Followed a bloggers idea to add cabbage and carrots, shred cabbage (used bok choy) and place in bottom of colander. Drain hot pasta over top of vegetables and then mix with sauce per recipe. HUGE hit in my home. Did add fried egg and made this a full meal.

  • Miso-shiitake soup with napa cabbage

    • tarae1204 on January 29, 2021

      I made this tonight with every ingredient except wakame and I found it lacked depth of flavor. Might have been better using stock to replace wakame.

  • Singapore shrimp and chicken noodle soup (Laksa)

    • meginyeg on March 04, 2021

      Super tasty. Only changes I made was using cooked pieces of chicken leftover from a roast chicken amd adding asparagus just because I had some to use up.

  • Caramelized pork with orange and sage

    • bwhip on October 29, 2020

      Delicious dish, with a great mix of sweet and spicy, and a lovely crunch from the topping. Instructions were very clear, and prep was simple. We’ll have this one again.

  • Soba noodles with asparagus, miso butter and egg

    • bwhip on June 04, 2021

      Simple, tasty, easy to toss together. A nice midweek dinner during asparagus season.

    • Lsblackburn1 on August 11, 2020

      I was in the mood for soba and found this recipe. Not mind-blowing, but tasty enough. A nice simple summer dinner.

  • Taiwanese beef noodle soup

    • gloriole on September 08, 2021

      I was skeptical about this recipe but it turned out real good. So simple to make but yielded big flavors and perfect results.

    • Lsblackburn1 on October 02, 2022

      This was very delicious and comforting after a bout of illness! I used short ribs and made the broth early in the day. There was a lot of fat, but cooled it in the fridge and skimmed it off the top. I think I’d use more water next time at the start because most of mine cooked off so I added more to dilute the very concentrated broth at the end.

  • Spanish spice-crusted pork tenderloin bites (Pinchos Morunos)

    • gloriole on September 08, 2021

      So easy and delicious. I made this for the week's lunch and it held up really well. Remained moist and tender even with a short marination time of 1 hr as prescribed. I was a little nervous about not salting them or marinating or brining them overnight and nervous that it was going to overcook and be tough, but none of that was a problem! Fabulous as always with Milk Street.

    • Running_with_Wools on December 05, 2020

      I've made this two times now for my family, and it's very easy, and really delicious. Packed with flavor but not spicy -so my younger children can enjoy it too.

  • Sumac-spiced chicken (Musakhan)

    • Lsblackburn1 on March 10, 2021

      Easy to make and very tasty. Served on flatbread (that I didn’t do anything to) with feta cheese. This would be a great recipe for a dinner party once we can have those again (soon!)

  • Pork and chorizo with piquillo peppers (Carcamusa)

    • Lsblackburn1 on January 30, 2021

      Loved the bold flavors in this. I wasn’t sure how we should eat it, but I went with toasted bread and that was a great choice for scooping up the sauce.

  • Sweet-and-spicy ginger green beans

    • JulieCruz on September 30, 2022

      Very good, use thick green beans, the thinner ones can’t stand up to the cooking and get soft.

  • Chicken teriyaki rice bowls (Teriyaki donburi)

    • Bluewhisper39 on March 28, 2021

      This is a tasty recipe. I add a side of stir fried vegetables to make a complete meal.

  • Spicy red lentil stew with coconut milk and spinach

    • dc151 on December 10, 2021

      We made this tonight. Simple, straightforward and very tasty. Surprisingly filling!

  • Chocolate-orange tart

    • MissKoo on July 01, 2020

      Another winner. The crust is great, and what the recipe says is true. This truly is a crust that does not shrink when blind-baked. Almond flour adds nice flavor, easy to make in food processor, and can be made and frozen up to two weeks in advance. Chocolate-orange combo in filling is classic; just a hint of cinnamon and ricotta is not too heavy. Still, a rich dessert, so good one for sharing with several people. Would definitely make again.

  • Lebanese-style tabbouleh

    • skvalentine on March 29, 2022

      Delicious! I used a bit less allspice than called for, because I don't tend to like that flavor, but it isn't really noticeable in the finished dish. Will definitely be making again! Perfect dish to bring to a potluck.

  • Mexican chicken soup with tomatillos and hominy

    • Running_with_Wools on November 16, 2020

      I bought this cookbook after watching the T.V. show where the Milk Street gang cooked it. And I've now made the soup five times (partner asks for it every time we make stock). It is really layered with deep flavor, and absolutely delicious.

  • Brown butter-cardamom banana bread

    • Running_with_Wools on November 15, 2020

      Absolutely delicious recipe. You make brown butter, and mix the cardamom into it along with all the liquids, then fold into the dry ingredients. It took 5 minutes to make. I made it gluten-free, and it turned out beautiful. I made a couple of high-altitude adjustments, and it did not cave in. The house smells amazing and everyone loved it. I used Shauna Server's little sugar trick on top to create the crispy sugar tiles.
