Veal Stew with Chanterelles and PeasDecember 10th, 2011 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Chanterelles are mushrooms which I simply can’t pass in the shop, even though they are seasonal or maybe because of that.
It is my shame, but I don’t know any way to prepare them other than this stew with veal and peas, but it sure tastes great!
You can substitute beef for veal, just increase cooking time to ensure meat is soft enough. You can also substitute white dry wine for water, if you feel like this.
Duck Meat Stewed with ApplesNovember 5th, 2011 in Duck, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Duck meat does go great with apples; usually stuffing a whole duck with apples and then roasting it in the oven is a way to go. But first – it can take quite some time, and then – it bears hassle of dealing with bones when serving and eating.
All of that is gone if boneless duck breasts are sliced and stewed with apples in a deep skillet like in this recipe. It also makes it easier to serve exact amount of meat for each portion.
Any apples will do good for this recipe, however sour ones are better.
Beef Stroganoff with Mushrooms and CreamSeptember 17th, 2011 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This recipe features a small modification to the beef stroganoff recipe I posted earlier, but a good one: a cup of cream and cremini mushrooms give this dish a very rich taste.
Field mushrooms will also work good in this recipe, but cremini are the best.
As usual, I suggest serving beef stroganoff with a side of boiled buckwheat, it tastes great with mushrooms and cream and, of course, beef.
Salmon Roast in FoilSeptember 10th, 2011 in Fish, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
For me the best tasting salmon – is boiled salmon, and with this recipe I get taste of boiled salmon without actually boiling it. The same as boiled salmon this one tastes great garnished with mayo; a glass of white wine is good accompaniment as well.
This salmon roast can be cooked on the grill as well, just pack each fish piece into separate piece of foil and then cook without pan until ready.
Onions here are optional, they give a bit of taste to the dish but they also make sure that fish doesn’t touch the foil.
Pork Loin Roll with Prunes and CarrotsSeptember 3rd, 2011 in Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina
Ingredients in this recipe for most part are the same as in meat stew with prunes and carrots, however for this one I suggest using pork loin – it is tender and much easier to slit flat to be able to roll it with stuffing.
Prunes are go great with pork meat. If you have dry prunes with pits – soak them in boiled water for 15-20 mins to soften and then remove pits before continue with recipe.
Minced Cutlets Stuffed with MushroomsAugust 6th, 2011 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This is a tasty tweak to original minced beef cutlets recipe. The mince is prepared exactly the same way and mushrooms and onions stuffing gives ground meat juiciness and extraordinary taste.
A bit of agility is required to put stuffing inside of minced meat cutlets, but once you get it – it seems easy: meat is sticky, so if you get some holes, they can be easily patched by adding a layer of mince on top of the hole.
To prevent meat from sticking to hands – rinse hands with cold water from time to time while assembling minced cutlets.
Pork Roast with Garlic, Mayo and SpicesJune 25th, 2011 in Main Dishes, Pork by Julia Volhina
Yet another pork roast – and it is spicy one. Slow cooking turns meat in this roast tender and juicy and it makes great dinner.
To save some time on preparation you can marinate meat in advance and then just put it to the oven 2-3 hours before it needs to hit the table.
Juices produced while meat was cooking make great addition when poured over the meat or its side dish of potatoes served with it.
