Grilled Cabbage Steaks #StPatricksDay


I just discovered a new blogging group that posts recipes around food holidays or just holidays in general: Holiday Fun with Our Blog Friends. Fun!

Since St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, this group decided it was a great time to celebrate the Irish in all of us, even if there isn't any! There are a lot more ways to celebrate St. Paddy's than drinking green beer. So, Jan from The Tip Garden and Carlee from Cooking with Carlee gathered us to share our best St. Patrick's Day inspired recipes.  There is sure to be something for everyone! Éirinn go Brách!

Grilled Cabbage Steaks

Since I had already done a corned beef and (boiled) cabbage meal for R's robotics team when they came to the house earlier, I decided to try a different cabbage preparation for our family corned beef dinner. I've roasted cabbage steaks in the past. For this, I grilled them. And I used a combination of green and purple cabbage.

I will definitely be doing this again soon. They were delicious and so, so simple. The purple cabbage ended up being more sweet. It was fantastic! I didn't add any salt to these because the corned beef is so salty on its own, but feel free to add to your tastes.

Ingredients

  • 1 head organic green cabbage
  • 1 head organic purple cabbage
  • ¼ C butter, melted
  • freshly ground pepper
  • olive oil for serving


Procedure
Remove the outer layer of the cabbages and slice them into 1" thick steaks.

Heat your grill or griddle. Brush the pan with melted butter and place the steaks on the pan. Cook until the edges begin to darken and the cabbage begins to soften, approximately 5 to 6 minutes. Flip the steaks over and cook for another 5 to 6 minutes.


To serve, sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Serve hot.

  2. I have grilled cabbage before to use in a bratwurst salad and it was amazing. Can't think why I haven't thought to use that technique again. Thanks for the reminder, Cam.

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
