Fried Meat with Mustard and Eggs

May 9th, 2015 in Beef, Chicken, Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina

The magic of this recipe is in the fact that you can prepare everything for it a day before and then just fry the meat when the time is right.

You can actually store marinated meat in fridge for longer and just fry a portion you need every time you need it, which may save time eventually.

Results may vary depending on the taste of mustard you use. So use the one you like :).

The same goes for peppers – I used a mixture I had on hands: red pepper, black pepper, white pepper, coriander, etc, but you can use whatever you like the most.

Choose softer cut of beef for this recipe, pork or chicken may work too.

Hot Camomile Tea with Rum

January 3rd, 2015 in Beverages, With Alcohol by Julia Volhina

If you are looking for comfort beverage to get warm during cold winter, try spiced hot camomile tea with rum.

Cinnamon and cloves spice the tea up, lemon juice flavors it and rum adds a bit of twist to the taste just enough to help with warming process, serve it hot.

I usually drink my tea unsweetened, but if you need some sweetness use honey (preferably) or sugar to taste.

Pineapple Stuffed Pork Pockets

October 10th, 2014 in Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina

Pork tastes great with pineapple. These pork pockets rubbed with mix of spices and stuffed with pineapple chunks are perfect fit for romantic or celebration dinner.

Other cuts of pork can be cooked like this, but tenderloin works the best due to shape and tenderness.

I used fresh pineapples, but canned ones may work good too.

Chicken Salad with Cucumbers and Korean Style Carrots

August 16th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

Yet another one chicken salad to be added to my list of recipes: tender chicken meat, boiled eggs, tasty cucumbers and spicy carrots prepare in korean style.

This salad will work great as a side or appetizer, or as a lunch meal itself, especially if you need something to take with you. It can be served plain, in a sandwich or in a wrap.

Salad can be dressed with a mix of mayo and sour cream instead of the mayo alone, if you are looking for healthier option.

Korean Style Carrots

August 9th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks, Salads, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Korean style carrots (“morkovka po-korejski”) is a popular in post-USSR countries dish which is usually served as salad, side dish or relish.

Often it is also served on hot dogs along with sausage inside the bun.

These pretty spicy carrots are great side for meats or poultry. They can also be used as one of ingredients for salads and other dishes.

Boiled Shrimps

June 14th, 2014 in Fish, Main Dishes, Tips, Advices & How-to by Julia Volhina

Store sold ready to use cooked shrimps can be used for recipes which call for boiled shrimps (salads, soups, stir fries, etc). Or you can boil raw shrimps and get more tender, tasty and less expensive version of store sold cooked shrimps.

Shrimps cooked this way also work great as a meal on its own, snack for beer or an appetizer.

Use fresh or frozen shrimps, shell-on or fully cleaned ones, or even whole shrimps (these will require more cleaning after though). You can also use this recipe to “unfreeze” cooked shrimps and infuse them with spices (just reduce cooking time to not overcook them).

Usually package instructions say to thaw frozen shrimps before cooking, but I don’t do it. Cooking frozen raw shrimps this way works for me just as good not frozen ones and it also saves time.

Cooking time will depend on size of shrimps: the smaller shrimps are, the less time for cooking they require – turn heat off as soon as shrimps float to the surface (this means they are cooked enough).

Tortilla Rolls with Crab Sticks and Cheese

May 24th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina

I had some tortillas left from the pack I used on recipe earlier this month. So I decided to post another recipe for tortilla rolls, this time with crab stick, cheese, garlic and greens stuffing.

The same as the first one, these rolls will work perfectly as a snack or an appetizer, and they go great together with beer.

So if you are looking for some unusual snack recipe, here it is.
