London Broil with Horseradish Sauce

Post  justmecookin on Thu Apr 24, 2008 10:10 am

London Broil with Horseradish Sauce

Steak:
1 clove garlic
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 2 tsp. dried
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (3 lb.) piece London broil

Sauce:
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons bottled horseradish
Salt and pepper

Prepare steak: Place garlic, salt, pepper and thyme on a cutting surface and use a large knife to chop together until mixed. Transfer to a large ziplock bag. Add soy sauce and oil; seal and press bag gently to combine ingredients. Place steak in bag and seal. Turn several times to coat meat. Refrigerate, turning several times, for at least 3 hours and up to overnight.

Prepare sauce: Beat cream, sour cream, mustard, lemon juice and horseradish with an electric mixer until mixture forms stiff peaks. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into a chilled serving bowl, cover and refrigerate. (Sauce can be made up to an hour before serving.)

Preheat broiler to high and arrange rack 6 inches from heat source. Remove meat from marinade and pat dry; discard marinade. Broil on a broiling pan for 7 minutes. Turn meat over and broil 5 to 7 minutes longer. To check for doneness, test with the tip of a sharp knife.

If juices run red, broil 1 or 2 minutes longer, until an instant-read thermometer reads 140°F (for medium-rare). Let steak rest on a cutting surface for 10 minutes. Working against the grain, cut into thin slices with a sharp knife. Serve with horseradish sauce on side. Makes 8 Servings

Corned Beef Horseradish Terrine

Post  justmecookin on Thu Apr 24, 2008 10:30 am

Corned Beef Horseradish Terrine

2 packages (3 oz. each) cream cheese
1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) cold butter, cut into chunks
1/4 cup chopped parsley
2 to 3 tablespoons drained prepared horseradish
About 1/2 pound fat-trimmed thin-sliced cooked corned beef
1 baguette (about 8 oz.), thinly sliced

In a food processor, whirl cream cheese, butter, parsley, and horseradish to taste until smooth and pale green; scrape container sides as needed.

Lightly oil a 3- by 5-inch loaf pan (about 2 1/4 cups to the rim). Line with 1 layer of corned beef slices, neatly overlapped from 1 rim across bottom to the other rim (with ends extending over rim). Line ends of pan with corned beef slices, overlapping the bottom and pan rim.

Dot 1/3 cup cheese mixture onto meat in pan bottom; gently spread level. Cut 2 or 3 corned beef slices to fit pan, and lay neatly onto cheese mixture. Repeat to make 3 more layers, ending at the rim with cheese mixture. Cut 2 or 3 corned beef slices to fit pan and lay on cheese mixture to cover. Fold meat at pan rim neatly over filling; pat gently to make level. Wrap airtight.

Chill until firm enough to slice, at least 4 hours or up to 2 days. Unwrap terrine; invert a flat plate onto pan. Holding plate and pan together, turn over and lift pan off. Pat loose pieces of corned beef back in place. With a sharp knife, cut terrine into 8 to 10 equal slices. Serve with baguette slices on plates. Makes 8 servings

Stout Chocolate-Cherry Bread

Post  justmecookin on Thu Apr 24, 2008 3:45 pm

Stout Chocolate-Cherry Bread

4 1/4 cups bread flour, divided
1 (12-ounce) bottle Guinness Stout
1 package dry yeast (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dried tart cherries
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
Cooking spray
1 teaspoon water
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon pearl sugar (optional)

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine 2 cups flour, beer, and yeast in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Remove mixture from refrigerator; let stand 1 hour.

Add 2 cups flour, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, and salt; stir until a soft dough forms. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 8 minutes); add enough of remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands (dough will feel tacky). Knead in cherries and chocolate.

Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in size. (Gently press 2 fingers into dough. If indentation remains, dough has risen enough.)

Punch dough down; cover and let rest 5 minutes. Shape dough into a 9-inch round; place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Lightly coat dough with cooking spray. Cover and let rise 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 350°. Uncover the dough. Combine water and egg white, stirring with a whisk, and brush over dough. Sprinkle the dough with pearl sugar, if desired. Make a 1/4-inch-deep cut down the center of dough using a sharp knife.

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until bread is browned on bottom and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan; cool on a wire rack. Makes 20 servings

Post  justmecookin on Thu Apr 24, 2008 6:00 pm

Sally Lunn Bread

2 (1/4-ounce) envelopes active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (100° to 110°)
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
5 cups all-purpose flour
Blackberry Butter (optional)

Combine yeast and 1/2 cup warm water in a 1-cup measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes. Heat milk and next 3 ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until butter melts. Cool to 100° to 110°.

Beat yeast mixture, milk mixture, and eggs at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Gradually add flour, beating at lowest speed until blended. (Mixture will be a very sticky, soft dough.)

Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 1 hour or until dough is doubled in bulk. Stir dough down; cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 30 minutes or until dough is doubled in bulk.

Stir dough down, and spoon into a well-greased, 10-inch Bundt pan or tube pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 20 to 30 minutes or until dough is doubled in bulk.

Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and a wooden pick inserted into center of bread comes out clean. Remove from pan immediately. Serve bread with Blackberry Butter, honey, molasses, or jelly, if desired. Makes 12 to 16 servings

Blackberry Butter: Stir 2 to 3 tablespoons seedless blackberry jam into 1/2 cup softened butter.

Irish Oatmeal Bread

Post  justmecookin on Thu Apr 24, 2008 6:03 pm

Irish Oatmeal Bread

2 1/4 cups boiling water
1 3/4 cups steel-cut oats
1 tablespoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
Dash of granulated sugar
2 packages dry yeast (about 2 1/4 teaspoons each)
1/2 cup warm water (100° to 110°)
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
3 cups whole wheat flour
Cooking spray
1 large egg, lightly beaten

Combine the first 5 ingredients in the bowl of a stand-up mixer, and let stand 25 minutes. Dissolve granulated sugar and yeast in warm water; let stand 5 minutes or until foamy. Add to oat mixture. Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife.

Gradually add 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour and 3 cups whole wheat flour to oat mixture. Beat at medium speed until well blended. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 8 minutes); add enough of the remaining all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands (dough will feel sticky).

Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in size. (Gently press two fingers into dough. If indentation remains, dough has risen enough.) Punch dough down; cover and let rest 5 minutes.

Divide in half. Working with one portion at a time (cover remaining dough to prevent drying), roll each portion into a 14 x 8-inch rectangle on a floured surface. Roll up each rectangle tightly, starting with a short edge, pressing firmly to eliminate air pockets; pinch seam and ends to seal. Place each loaf, seam sides down, in a 9-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise 30 minutes or until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 350º. Uncover dough, and brush egg evenly over loaves. Bake at 350º for 45 minutes or until loaves are browned on bottom and sound hollow when tapped. Remove from pan, and cool on wire racks. Makes 2 loaves

Smoked Salmon and Cheese Mini Twice-Baked Potatoes

Post  justmecookin on Thu Apr 24, 2008 6:07 pm

Smoked Salmon and Cheese Mini Twice-Baked Potatoes

6 small Yukon gold or red potatoes (about 2 pounds)
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
Cooking spray
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup (2 ounces) finely grated white cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons finely chopped smoked salmon (1 ounce)

Preheat oven to 400°. Rub potatoes with oil; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place potatoes on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 35 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven; cool 10 minutes.

Cut potatoes in half crosswise; cut off a small portion of the rounded edge so the potato will stand upright. Carefully scoop out about 1 teaspoon pulp from each half, leaving the shells intact. Combine potato pulp, milk, butter, pepper, cheese, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a bowl.

Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoon potato mixture into each potato shell. Arrange stuffed potatoes on a jelly-roll pan; top each with 1/2 teaspoon chopped salmon. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Makes 12 servings

Broiled Oysters with Celery Cream and Virginia Ham

Post  justmecookin on Fri Apr 25, 2008 7:25 pm

Broiled Oysters with Celery Cream and Virginia Ham

3 dozen fresh oysters, in the shell
Rock salt
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley stems
1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 ounces Virginia ham, diced
3 celery stalks, finely chopped
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups peeled, chopped celery root
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt

Scrub oysters with a stiff brush under running water. Insert an oyster knife into the hinged edge of each oyster; twist knife handle back and forth until top shell is loose.

Slide oyster knife along the bottom of the shell to detach muscle. Remove and discard top shell; drain and reserve 1 cup oyster liquor. Keep oysters in the deeper bottom shell. Arrange oysters over rock salt in a jellyroll pan; chill.

Combine 1 cup oyster liquor, 1 cup cream, and next 5 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, about 25 minutes or until thickened. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a bowl. Stir in ham, celery, and pepper; set celery cream aside.

Cook celery root in boiling water to cover 10 minutes or until tender; drain. Place celery root, 1/4 cup cream, butter, and salt in a food processor. Process until smooth.

Place 1/2 teaspoon celery root puree under each reserved oyster in the shell. Top with 1 teaspoon reserved celery cream. Broil 3 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until bubbly. Serve immediately. Makes 9 servings
