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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
