Wasabi Salmon with Bok Choy, Green Cabbage, and Shiitakes

Makes 4 Servings

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon wasabi paste (Japanese horseradish paste)

1 tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled and finely minced

3 large garlic cloves, finely minced

4 6-ounce skinless salmon fillets

Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

1 pound baby bok choy, halved

2 cups (packed) green cabbage, finely shredded (about 5 ounces)

4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, and sliced – if large

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce

Preheat oven to 450°F. Heat a large rimmed baking sheet for 15 minutes

Meanwhile, mix mayonnaise and wasabi in a small bowl.  Stir in half of the ginger and half of garlic; set aside. Season fish all over with salt and pepper. Place bok chop, cabbage, and mushrooms in a large bowl. Drizzle with oil and soy sauce and add remaining ginger and garlic. Toss to coat; season with salt and pepper.

Scatter vegetables across one side of baking sheet. Arrange salmon on the other side. Roast, stirring vegetables occasionally, until salmon is cooked through, 12-15 minutes. Divide vegetables among plates; top with salmon. Serve wasabi mayonnaise alongside.

Italian Spiced Braised Pot Roast

A trio of classic Italian spices adds a wonderful savory note to the beef in this dish.  For more intense flavor, apply the rub to the roast the day before; cover and refrigerate overnight.

TECHNIQUE:  Braise: A cooking method by which food (usually meat or vegetables) is first browned in fat, then cooked, tightly covered, in a small amount of liquid at low heat for a lengthy period of time.  The long, slow cooking develops flavor and tenderizes foods by gently breaking down their fibers.  Braising can be done on top of the range or in the oven.  A tight-fitting lid is very important to prevent the liquid from evaporating.

CUTS OF MEAT:  Chuck or Round cuts

Italian Spiced Braised Pot Roast

Serves 6
1 tablespoon fennel seeds, crushed*

1 tablespoon dried basil

2 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 3-pound boneless beef chuck roast, patted dry

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 large onion, chopped

1 cup red wine, of drinkable quality

1 8-ounce can tomato sauce

1 cup roasted red bell peppers, coarsely chopped

2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley

  1. Heat oven to 325°F Combine fennel seeds, basil, oregano, salt and pepper in small bowl; rub over the beef (for more intense flavor, apply the rub to the roast the day before; cover and refrigerate overnight).  Heat large nonreactive Dutch oven over medium-high heat until hot.  Add oil, heat until hot.  Brown beef 5 to 6 minutes, turning to brown on all sides; remove from pan.
  2.  Add onions to dutch oven; cook over medium heat 3 to 4 minutes or until slightly softened, stirring occasionally.  Increase heat to high; add red wine.  Bring to a boil, stirring to scrape up any browned bits from bottom of pan.  Boil 1 minute; stir in tomato sauce.  Return beef and any accumulated juices to pan; stir in bell peppers.  Place round of parchment paper directly on beef and wine mixture.  Cover; bring to a boil.
  3.  Bake 2 ½ to 3 hours or until beef is tender. Remove beef; cover loosely with foil.  Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.  Meanwhile, skim off and discard any fat that rises to the top of the cooking liquid.  To thicken pan juices, bring to a boil over high heat; boil 3 to 5 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.  Serve beef with pan juices; sprinkle with parsley.

*Crush fennel seeds with a mortar and pestle, spice grinder or in plastic bag with flat side of meat mallet.

Five Tips to Help Make Dinner Quick and Healthy

 

Fantastic Dinner Tips

 

Do you wish you had more time to make healthy, delicious meals for the whole family? Well, with a little planning, you can! These five tips are easy to execute and will save you an enormous amount of time when it comes to preparing dinner.

 

1. Create a meal plan – This sounds simple right? You would be amazed at how taking the time to plan your weekly meals will save you from trying to come up with ideas on the fly. Trying to shop the grocery aisles searching for meal solutions while the kids are fussy is no easy task. If you dedicate some time to plan ahead, you can get your shopping done faster because you already know what you need. The meal plan can be as simple as writing it on a piece of paper or creating a running calendar that contains meals that you rotate through. Another great use for a meal plan is the ability to keep things fresh. If you take 30 minutes to plan out your meals, you can find new recipes to try that include ingredients you might not typically use.

 

2. Prep on the weekend – Picture this, you get home from your busy day, put dinner in the oven and go enjoy some time the kids while it cooks. This is possible! All you need to do is spend a few hours on the weekend prepping your weekly meals to save a lot of time during the week. Put together two or three meals ahead of time so all you have to do is heat them up. The workload up front might seem intimidating but the time saved for you to enjoy more fun things is definitely worth it. If you don’t want to make all of the meals in one day, prepping the night before is a real time-saver too. Cut up your veggies, make your sauce and assemble what you can to make it easier for you when you get home. It’s all about saving time!

 

3. Leftovers are your friend – Where is the rule that says you need to have a different meal every night? Leftovers are an easy way to knock out two meals in the same week. Sometimes, leftover meals are even better the next day! If the meal is good, why wouldn’t you want to eat it again? The only thing to take into account if you are planning leftovers is to make enough to have another meal. This works well with lasagna, casseroles and meatloaf, for example. If you don’t want the same meal on back-to-back days, save it for a few days later. Another great use for leftovers is making them a whole new meal. Say you made tacos on Monday, use the taco meat on Wednesday and throw it in some pasta. It’s a whole new meal without starting from scratch.

 

4. Cook all of your meat at once – Instead of browning one pound of hamburger for your meal, brown a few pounds and save it for other meals that week or freeze it. The same concept goes for chicken, bake a few pounds at a time and use it for salads, casseroles or soups. Another bonus of buying meat in bulk is it saves you money.

 

5. Clean as you go – An easy tip for streamlining the cooking process is cleaning as you go. Don’t wait to do the sink full of dishes at the end, wash them while your meal is browning or baking. This sounds simple but you would be surprised at how often it is overlooked. Any downtime between cooking stages can easily be used to get ahead. If you do this, by the time the meal comes out of the oven, the kitchen is already cleaned. You’ll feel a small victory just by taking this easy approach to cleaning.

 

Planning ahead is the key to making life simple during the week. These five tips will help you stay ahead of dinner so you can enjoy the meal with your family. Your family will appreciate it too because they will have new meals to try and more time to spend with you.
