Seoultown Ham and Eggs {Pass the Cookbook}


It's Pass the Cookbook time again...this was all started by Kita, the culinary force Pass the Sushi blog. This month we had the option of cooking one of three recipes from Seoultown Kitchen: Korean Pub Grub to Share with Friends and Family by Debbie Lee - Ginger Soy Beef with Chile Tomatoes, Chile Chicken Wings, and Spam and Eggs. All three looked delicious and flavorful. But, in the end, I opted to do a twist on the Spam and Eggs; sorry, folks, I don't do Spam and I don't - typically - eat white rice. So, my version is made with Madagascar pink rice, Canadian bacon, poached eggs and a chile-ginger syrup. Enjoy...we surely did! This recipe serves 4.


8 eggs
8 slices of nitrite-free Canadian bacon
4 C cooked Madagascar pink rice
black sesame seeds for garnish
  
Chile-Ginger Syrup   (makes about ½ c)
½ c ginger syrup
2 t finely ground chile powder
½ t cinnamon
1 t smoked paprika

First, make the chile-ginger syrup. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the ginger syrup, chile powder, cinnamon and smoked paprika. Bring to a low simmer and cook for about 10 min to allow the flavors to melt. Remove from the heat and cover the pot with aluminum foil to keep warm.

Bring water - about 2" deep - to boil in a large, flat bottom pan. Gently break eggs into the boiling water. Poach until desired doneness. We like ours with the yolk still a tad soft. Remove the eggs to a plate with a slotted spoon.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the Canadian bacon slices and brown on each side for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they can attain a nice crust. Remove from the heat.

To assemble, place 1 C of the hot rice on a middle of a plate or bowl. Top with 2 slices of Canadian bacon and 2 poached eggs. Drizzle with the chile-ginger syrup and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

  3. I couldn't do the spam either ;) I love how you changed yours up with canadian bacon. Good call! And I've never hear of Madagascar pink rice before! Now I'm officially intrigued. I'm going to seek that out and give it a try. Thanks for turning me on to something new.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
