Today I will let you in on an easy benihana garlic butter recipe that you can follow even when you are short on time. Now here is something that holds for most households: garlic and butter are common ingredients that we use in making a variety of dishes. Their popularity owes to their rich flavors which can turn a bland meal into a finger-licking delicacy in a few.
There are few tastes as distinctive as horseradish. It delivers a unique experience that’s somehow more than a taste. It’s not spicy in the same way as a pepper, but it certainly has plenty of kick. This makes it the backbone of many sauces, dips, and recipes. This means it’s tough to find a horseradish replacement.
I was at a sushi bar in Los Angeles perhaps two years ago when I witnessed a particularly embarrassing interaction. A woman was talking to one of the chefs (who spoke very good English) and she forced the poor man to explain in great detail what all of the ingredients in her sushi roll were. She wasn’t content with normal explanations, either. Instead, she demanded that he describe all of the ingredients in simple English terms — seaweed instead of nori and so forth. When he tried to define gobo, however, she refused to believe him.
American sauces are a nightmare to get right. With traditional French or Italian or even English cooking, it’s pretty easy to find a single, reliable source you can use for your recipe. This lets you quickly compare the dish you’ve made with an “ideal” version and make the appropriate changes. When you ask a friend for advice or look online, you can usually get a pretty definitive answer immediately. If you need to thicken a pasta sauce, there will be a note in the recipe that tells you exactly how to do that.
Do you know Subway’s tuna salad or how to prepare it at home? Whenever I’m in the mood for a healthy and delicious salad or sandwich filling, Subway’s tuna salad is my favorite go-to.
Fruits are pretty complicated. People have been cultivating various strains of our favorite fruits for thousands of years, meaning that we’ve got lots of exciting culinary options to choose from. Exciting doesn’t always mean accessible, however. If you’ve ever bought a granny smith apple to enjoy raw, for example, you almost certainly know that there’s a world of difference between different strains of the same fruit. Morello cherries are another great example of a delicious fruit that’s different than other members of the cherry family.
Asian and Chinese cuisine have become a huge influence on the way we eat out and order in. Most people enjoy several Asian dishes, and one of the most popular options are the egg and spring rolls. Although they are somewhat similar, there are definitely differences between the two. Most people who know the difference tend to have a preference for one or the other.
My husband and I set off the other day for a journey from Philadelphia to Kentucky. Since he was driving, I decided to watch It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on my tablet. I had never watched the show before, but I made it to series five before the character Charlie Kelly orders milk steak.
My love for cabbage rolls started way back in college, when one of my Ukrainian roommates cooked some for dinner. It was one of the heartiest and tastiest cabbage rolls I have ever tasted in my life, and I was instantly addicted. From then on, I’ve tried making cabbage rolls myself and perfecting my own recipe. I’ve even tried making different versions of the dish like the Ukrainian Golubtsi, the Polish Golabki, and the German Kohlrouladen. They’re all cabbage rolls, but each country has its own different twist on the dish so that no two are exactly alike.
I love Vietnamese soups. Whether it’s pho, bun rieu, or Bún Măng Vịt, I always have space in my stomach for a flavorful bowl of tasty soup. This means you’ll often spot me at a local restaurant trying a flavorful favorite like bun rieu cua or falling back on a basic bowl of pho.
