Rachael Ray's Curry Pepper Beef with Smoked Almond Pilaf

Post  justmecookin on Sat Oct 18, 2008 3:06 pm

Rachael Ray's Curry Pepper Beef with Smoked Almond Pilaf

1 package store-bought rice pilaf, such as Near East
2 pounds 1-inch-thick lean beef sirloin, at room temperature
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Salt and pepper
1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into bite-size pieces
1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into bite-size pieces
3 tablespoons butter
2 shallots, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup dry sherry
1 cup beef broth
1 tablespoon curry powder
1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro or flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup smoked almonds, such as Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds, halved

Prepare rice according to package directions. Pat the beef dry and cut into bite-size pieces. In a large skillet or Dutch oven, heat the oil over high heat until smoking. Working in 2 batches, cook the beef until browned on all sides, 2-3 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a plate. Lower the heat to medium, add the bell peppers and cook, stirring, until softened, about 10 minutes. Transfer to the plate with the meat.

Add the butter to the skillet. Add the shallots and garlic and cook until fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle the flour into the pan and whisk in the sherry, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir in the beef broth and curry powder.

Return the meat and peppers and any juices to the pan and simmer to combine the flavors, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Fluff the rice pilaf with a fork and stir in the cilantro and almonds. Serve with the beef. Serves 4

Rachael Ray's Bacon Wrapped Blue Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Post  justmecookin on Sat Oct 18, 2008 3:22 pm

Rachael Ray's Bacon Wrapped Blue Cheese Stuffed Chicken

4 pieces boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Black pepper
4-5 ounces blue cheese crumbles
A handful arugula leaves from bulk bins, chopped
A handful baby spinach leaves from bulk bins, chopped
4 slices bacon
2 pounds baby potatoes, halved
Salt
1 pound thin green beans

Leaves from 4 fresh thyme sprigs

Combine the cheese with arugula and baby spinach and stuff the breasts. Spiral-wrap the breasts with the bacon tightly to cover the meat evenly. Place chicken on a nonstick baking sheet and roast 20-22 minutes until bacon is crispy and chicken is firm.

Place the potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, season water with salt and cook potatoes 15 minutes, or until tender.

Bring 1-inch water to a boil. Trim beans. Salt water and add beans to water. Simmer 5 minutes, drain and combine with tomatoes, thyme, 1 tablespoon oil, salt and pepper.

Place the potatoes back in the hot pot after draining. Coat the potatoes with 2 tablespoons Evoo, the scallions, chicken stock and salt and pepper. Toss for 1 minute. Serve chicken with green beans and potatoes alongside. Serves 4

1 cup frozen peas, thawed
1/4 pound smoked black-pepper bacon, chopped

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour

Stir in the Worcestershire sauce.

Make a well in the center, add the butter to melt, then whisk in the flour. Whisk in the beef broth until thickened, about 1 minute.

Shape each portion of meat into a patty, pressing down slightly in the middle, and drop them into the hot pan. Cook the burgers until golden brown and cooked through, about 6 minutes per side.

While the burgers are cooking, make the cranberry sauce: In a small bowl, stir together the onion, parsley, orange zest, cranberry sauce and some salt and pepper.

When the burgers have about 1 minute left, place 2 slices of cheese over each patty and cover the pan loosely with aluminum foil to melt the cheese. Serve the burgers on top of the toasted English muffins with 2 slices of bacon and scoop of cranberry sauce on each. Serves 4

Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), for drizzling plus 2 tablespoons
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, grated
18- 20 tomatillos, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 cup heavy cream
1 chipotle in adobo, mashed into paste plus 2 teaspoons adobo sauce

Rachael Ray's Bacon-Wrapped Salmon

Post  justmecookin on Thu Nov 06, 2008 1:16 pm

Rachael Ray's Bacon-Wrapped Salmon with Broccoli and Mashed Potatoes

2 pounds small red-skinned or Yukon gold potatoes
Salt
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
A few sprigs thyme
One 3-inch piece lemon peel
Pepper
Four 6-ounce salmon fillets, skinned
4 slices black-pepper bacon
1 head broccoli, cut into spears
One 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
2 cloves garlic, peeled and grated
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
2 pinches crushed red pepper
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons tamari (dark soy sauce)

Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and pre-heat to 450°. In a large saucepan, add the potatoes and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, salt the water and cook until tender, 12-15 minutes. Drain; return to the pot.

While the potatoes are working, in a saucepan, combine the chicken broth, cream, thyme sprigs and lemon peel and steep over medium-low heat. Pour over the drained potatoes and mash together; season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.

Rachael Ray's Italian Chicken Chili With Pancetta Croutons

Post  justmecookin on Thu Nov 06, 2008 1:19 pm

Rachael Ray's Italian Chicken Chili With Pancetta Croutons

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), divided
3 pounds ground chicken
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 onions, chopped
2 carrots, peeled and grated
1 bay leaf
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
4 jarred roasted red peppers, drained
4-5 sprigs thyme
2 tablespoons chili powder (a couple palmfuls)
2 teaspoons sweet smoked paprika (2/3 palmful)
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice (eyeball it)
1 quart chicken broth
1/3 pound pancetta, sliced 1/8 inch thick and finely chopped
3 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
1 loaf crusty bread (about 1 pound), cut into 1-inch squares
6 large cloves garlic, crushed
1 cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese
3 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 375°. Place a large, heavy pot over high heat with 1/4 cup Evoo, 4 turns of the pan. Add the chicken, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Add the onions, carrots and bay leaf to the pot and cook until browned, about 8 minutes more. Stir in the balsamic vinegar, scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon. Remove pot from heat.

In a food processor, puree the roasted peppers then stir the puree into the pot. Add the thyme sprigs, chili powder, paprika and allspice, and season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken broth, place the pot back over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, skimming the fat from the surface, if desired.

While the chili is simmering, place a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining 1/4 cup EVOO and the pancetta, and cook until browned, 3-5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer pancetta to a paper towel-lined plate. Add butter to the skillet and turn off the heat.

Place bread and garlic in a large bowl. Pour melted butter evenly over the bread. Sprinkle the reserved pancetta, cheese, rosemary and lots of pepper over the bread and toss to coat. Place the cubes on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, until golden, tossing occasionally. Remove from oven and let cool. Discard bay leaf and thyme from the chili before serving. Ladle chili into mugs, if desired, with pancetta croutons on top. Serves 6

Rachael Ray's New Brunswick Stew

Post  justmecookin on Thu Nov 06, 2008 1:20 pm

Rachael Ray's New Brunswick Stew

3-4 ribs celery from the heart, chopped into big pieces
1 large onion, chopped into big pieces
3 tablespoons plus a drizzle extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), divided
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
1 cup flour
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs and breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces
3 slices center-cut bacon, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, seeded and chopped into big pieces
3-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated
1 bay leaf
2 1/4 cups biscuit mix
2/3 cup milk
3 tablespoons chives or scallions, chopped and divided
1 teaspoon smoked paprika (add more or less depending on your taste)
1 teaspoon hot sauce (add more or less depending on your taste)
2 cups chicken stock
2 cans stewed tomatoes (14.5 ounces each can)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 can butter beans, drained (15 ounces)
1 box frozen corn (10 ounces)
2-3 scallions, sliced thinly on the bias (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 450º. Place a heavy-bottomed saucepot over medium-high heat with a drizzle of EVOO. Add the bacon to the pan and cook until crispy golden brown, 3-4 minutes.

While the bacon is cooking, season the chicken with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Combine the flour and poultry seasoning, and sprinkle it over the meat, tossing it lightly to combine.

Remove the crisp bacon from the pan and reserve it on a paper-towel lined plate. Cook the seasoned chicken in two batches, adding 1 tablespoon EVOO to the pot, about 1 turn of the pan, with each batch. Cook until golden brown, 5-6 minutes. Remove the browned chicken from the pot and reserve it on a paper-towel lined plate.

Add the remaining tablespoon of Evoo to the pot, about 1 turn of the pan, and toss in the onion, celery, pepper, garlic and bay leaf. Season the veggies with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and cook until tender, 8-10 minutes.

While the veggies are cooking, combine the biscuit mix, water, 2 tablespoons chives, smoked paprika and reserved crisped bacon in a medium-size mixing bowl. Drop eight biscuits onto a nonstick baking sheet and bake until light golden brown, about 10 minutes. When the biscuits are done baking, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool.

Once the veggies are softened, add the hot sauce, chicken stock, stewed tomatoes and Worcestershire to pot and bring up to a bubble. Add in the reserved chicken, butter beans and corn to the pot, and simmer until chicken is cooked through and stew is slightly thickened, 5-8 minutes. Serve the stew topped with a sprinkling of chives or green onions and a couple of biscuits alongside. Serves 4

Rachael Ray's Creole-Style Chili

Post  justmecookin on Thu Nov 06, 2008 1:22 pm

Rachael Ray's Creole-Style Chili

1 box corn muffin mix
1 cup frozen corn, defrosted
2 tablespoons chili powder, divided
2 cups aged cheddar cheese, grated and divided
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
3/4 pound andouille sausage, peeled
1 1/2 pounds of beef, veal, or pork meatloaf mix
1 bay leaf
3 celery stalks, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
5 thyme sprigs
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 bottle beer, lager style
1 cup chicken stock
1/3-1/2 cup hot sauce
1 can diced, fire-roasted tomatoes (28 ounces)
1 can red beans (15 ounces) (optional)
4 scallions, sliced

Pre-heat oven according to instructions on the corn muffin mix box. Butter an 8"x8" baking dish and make cornbread according to package directions. Add the defrosted corn, one tablespoon chili powder, one cup of cheddar cheese and the honey and bake according to the package.

To prepare the andouille sausage, slice it lengthwise. Then, lay each half flat on the counter and slice it lengthwise again and chop it into 1/2-inch pieces. While the corn bread is baking, pre-heat a large dutch oven over medium-high heat with two turns of the pan of Evoo, about two tablespoons.

Add the chopped andouille sausage and cook, stirring every now and then, for 2-3 minutes. Add the ground meat mixture to the pot, using the back of a wooden spoon to break up the meat as it browns.

Cook for about five minutes and then add the remaining tablespoon of chili powder, bay leaf, celery, onion, garlic, green bell pepper, thyme, salt and pepper, stirring frequently, for another five minutes.

Add the beer, scraping up brown bits from the bottom of the pan, then the chicken stock and hot sauce, and cook for another minute. Add the tomatoes and beans and bring up to a bubble. Simmer for 15 minutes. Remove bay leaf before serving.

To serve, cut the corn bread into squares. Ladle a serving of chili into a bowl and place the corn bread squares on top. Sprinkle generously with remaining cheddar cheese and scallions. Serves 4

Rachael Ray's Beef and Burgundy

Post  justmecookin on Thu Nov 06, 2008 1:24 pm

Rachael Ray's Beef and Burgundy

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), divided, plus additional as needed
4 slices bacon, chopped
2 1/2 pounds sirloin or sirloin tips, cut into large, bite-size pieces
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/3 bottle red burgundy wine
2 cups beef stock (eyeball it)
1 package frozen pearl onions
2 teaspoon sugar (about 1/3 palmful)
5 tablespoons butter, divided
1/2 pound mushrooms, quartered
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 pound wide egg noodles
A handful chives, minced

Preheat oven to 375°. Heat a Dutch oven or oven-safe, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons of Evoo, about 2 turns of the pan. Add the chopped bacon and cook until browned. When it is crisp and brown, remove the bacon from the pan to a paper towel lined-plate and reserve.

Season the chopped sirloin with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and add 1/3 of it to the bacon fat in the pan. Cook the meat, stirring occasionally, until deep golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove the seared meat to a plate and cook the remaining 2/3 of the meat in two batches, adding more Evoo to the pan if necessary.

With all the meat out of the pan, add the wine and scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring the wine to a bubble and reduce slightly. Add the beef stock, reserved meat and bacon back to the pot, then cover the pot and transfer it to the oven. Bake 90 minutes.

After the meat has been baking for 60 minutes, place a small, sauté pan over medium-high heat with the onions, sugar and a splash of water. Cook until the water has evaporated and the onions are tender and heated through, 4-5 minutes. Reserve and keep warm.

While the onions are cooking, place a medium-size skillet over medium-high heat with 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon Evoo, 1 turn of the pan. Cook the mushrooms until tender and golden brown, about 10 minutes, then season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Reserve and keep warm.

Place a large pot of water over high heat to cook the noodles. Once boiling, add some salt and the noodles and cook to al dente, according to package directions. Drain and return them back to the pot. Add 2 tablespoons of butter and the minced chives, toss to combine.

Once the meat has finished cooking, remove the pot from the oven and place it over medium-high heat. Add the cooked vegetables to the pot and bring it up to a bubble. Place the pan the mushrooms were cooked in over medium-high heat and melt 2 tablespoons butter. Sprinkle the flour over the butter and cook the mixture for about 1 minute.

Add about 1 cup of the liquid from the Dutch oven (eyeball it) to the roux and whisk them to combine. Bring the sauce up to a bubble to thicken it, and then add it to the ingredients in the Dutch oven. Simmer the stew in the Dutch oven until thickened, 5-6 minutes. To serve, stir the orange zest into the stew and ladle it up over the buttered noodles. Serves 6-8

Rachael Ray's Roasted Sausages, Peppers, and Onions

Post  justmecookin on Fri Nov 07, 2008 4:26 pm

Rachael Ray's Roasted Sausages, Peppers, and Onions

2 1/2 pounds thin Italian sausage, hot and sweet varieties
Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), for liberal drizzling plus 3 tablespoons, 3 turns of the pan
4 cloves garlic, 3 thinly sliced, 1 cracked from skin
1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced 1/2-inch thick
1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 large onion, 1/2-inch slices
1/4 cup tomato sauce, thinned out with water
Salt and pepper
1 loaf crusty semolina bread, split
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano
Coarse black pepper
2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, chopped (a rounded palmful)

Pre-heat oven to 425°. Place sausage rings on a baking sheet and liberally drizzle Evoo down over them. Place in hot oven and roast until casings are crisp and juices run clear, somewhere between 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven to rest sausages; switch on broiler.

While sausages roast, heat a skillet over medium heat with 3 tablespoons Evoo and sliced garlic. Simmer garlic in Evoo 2-3 minutes, then add peppers and onions. Turn the heat up a notch, and cook until the vegetables are tender but the peppers still hold strong color, 5-6 minutes. Add thinned tomato sauce, salt, and pepper and reduce.

Turn heat back to low and hold the veggies until the sausage comes out of the oven, a couple of minutes. Toast the split bread, remove from oven, rub with cracked garlic, liberally drizzle with EVOO, and cover with cheese and lots of black pepper. Return to the broiler to brown cheese, 1 minute. Scatter parsley over the bread.

Cut bread into chunks and pile with peppers and onions then sausages. The bread will soak in the juices as you work through the sausage, peppers and onions. Serves 4
