Green bean Casserole

Mar 28, 2016 by

Saw this Green Bean Casserole recipe on food network good eats and just had to make it, instead of the can of mushroom soup recipe. I am trying to stay away from the can goods and buy the fresh stuff. Not to say that this is a healthy dish, but it can be if you leave the half and half out and just use broth ;).

Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp kosher salt or sea salt
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, rinsed, and trimmed
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 12 ounces mushrooms
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • french frech fried onions
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Bring a gallon of water and 2 tablespoons of salt to a boil. Clean and cut the ends of the beans.  Add the beans to the boiling water and blanch for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander.
  2. Melt the butter in a 12-inch cast iron skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms begin to give up some of their liquid, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and nutmeg and continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add the broth and simmer for 1 minute. Decrease the heat to medium-low and add the half-and-half. Cook until the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally, approximately 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in ¼ of the onions and all of the green beans. Top with onions. Place into the oven and bake until bubbly, approximately 15 minutes.

Appelflappen (Apple Beignets)

Dec 30, 2014 by

Confusion about apple fritter and apple turnover. Is it appelflappen or appel beignets? Depends who you ask, and it depends where you are at.  If you have appetite for an apple fritter or an apple turnover you should wait and see what you get from the bakery. Both contains apple but how is the apple packaged. In puff pastry and baked in the oven or batter fried? It seems impossible to put an end to this confusion. Because how do you get everyone involved so far as to use the same definitions for apple fritters and apple turnovers? As for me I’m still calling these appelflappen because that’s what they were called where I grew up, even though officialy they are called appel beignets 😉 Appelflappen (beignets) are next to the oliebol the most popular treat on New Years Eve. Every Dutch family will have some oliebollen and or appelflappen.

Ingredients
  • 1½ cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Salt
  • 1¼ cups beer (Heineken)
  • Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
  • 4 Golden Delicious or which ever apples you got available
  • Granulated or confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
Instructions
  1. Peel and core the apples slice in ¼ inch rings and put them in cold water so they wont turn brown.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the all-purpose flour with a pinch of salt; gradually whisk in the beer until completely smooth. Allow the batter to rest for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 hour.
  3. In a large deep skillet, heat 3 inches of the vegetable oil to 370° over moderate heat. Stir the batter. Working in batches, dip the apple rings in the batter and fry them, turning occasionally, until golden and crisp, about 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon or a wire skimmer, transfer the beignets to a baking sheet lined with paper towels to drain. Keep the cooked beignets warm in a low oven while frying the rest. Sprinkle the beignets with granulated sugar or sift confectioners’ sugar over them and serve hot.

Prime Rib Roast

Dec 26, 2014 by

Prime Rib Roast. The above Prime Rib Roast is a bit overdone in my opinion but never the less it was still juicy and tender. Next time cook it shorter.

Ingredients
  • Prim Rib Roast
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp celery seeds
Instructions
  1. Remove Prime Roast from refrigerator and allow the meat to come to room temperature, about 3 hours
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  3. Put the flour, pepper, salt, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and celery seed into a small bowl.
  4. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil. Unwrap the roast and place onto roasting pan; blot with paper towels.
  5. Coat the roast all over with the flour mixture. This roast was 3lbs and we cooked this one for 90 min, 30 min per lb. I personally like mine a bit more “raw” on the inside and will cook it for 20 min per lb the next time. So for a well done 3 lb rib roast 90 min on 425F, medium rare 60 min on 425F. When the roast has finished cooking, take it out of the oven, and cover with aluminum foil. Allow to rest in a warm spot for 30 minutes to 1 hour before slicing.
