Steak chilli ingredients for 2 persons:
200 g sliced good quality steak
100 g red bell pepper slices
2 small onions, sliced
1 small can of corn (100 g)
1 small can of pinto beans (100 g)
2 tbsp of tomato paste
1 tsp liquid smoke
150 mls of water (approx, add more if the mixture is too dry)
So having just recently gotten my Instant Pot, the first thing I cooked was pintos. According to the information on the net I didn't have to soak them and the pressure cooker would cook them just fine. All true. However, the texture didn't seem to be quite right. Nothing to complain about, I...
This dish is very easy to make and you can adjust the amount of chilli according to taste. I served this with pulled pork (not shown).
Ingredients (serves 2)
½ large onion, chopped
70g of mixed bell peppers, chopped (use more if you wish)
1 tbsp oil
130g chopped tomatoes (I used tinned)
I came across these yellow beans in the supermarket (imported from Kenya). They taste very similar to green beans but perhaps more 'musky'. Inside the pods are tiny pale green beans which may account for that flavour. Anchovies work wonderfully with fresh beans so I set about creating a simple...
I usually cook black beans in a spicy Mexican style sauce but wanted to try something different. Slow cooked beef in brown ale is a traditional British way to cook beef and here and I set about trying to re-create something of that deep and dark savoury taste in a vegan bean dish. Juniper and...
You could use any sort of beans you wish for this dish, although I think larger, meatier beans work best. Stone Flower is a common name for a kind of lichen which is used in Indian cookery. I first came across it in an episode of Rick Stein’s India. He had never seen it before and commented on...
Delicate flageolet verts are perfect in this creamy wine, butter and garlic sauce. I used only a small amount of spinach here but you can vary the quantity or even leave it out altogether. I used some of the water from the can of beans to thicken the sauce. If you wish you could add a splash of...
Thank you for this challenge. It has been a long time since I made Red Beans and Rice. I forgot how much I love this wonderful lowly dish.
1 LB dried red kidney beans
1 lb andouiille sausage - 1/4" slice
1/2 cup small diced smoked pork tasso
2 cups diced yellow onion
This recipe is easy to make, and works whether you use it as a dip...
...or on pasta.
What I like about pestos in general is that there are so many ways to make them if you follow the same basic contents:
*I'm now realizing that I forgot to add nuts to this...
This is one of George's favorites. I did not make it this month but do make it frequently. I did make it early January.
1 1/4 lbs. mild Italian sausage
1 lb. dried Lentils
1 small to medium yellow onion - diced
1 stalk celery - diced
1 large carrot - diced
1 small Zucchini -...
This came together the way I usually make chili, but I had some decisions to make along the way to keep my vision clear. I decided not to include the two ingredients I feel define a chili: chili powder and cumin. The chili powder felt like it would be redundant (and unnoticed) in the face of all...
Yes...you knew I had to make a pizza during this challenge. So without further adieu, here is Black Bean Vegan Pizza.
1 vegan pizza crust
1/2 cup vegan sour cream
1/2 cup organic crushed tomatoes
1 cup organic black beans
1 tbsp crushed peppers
1 tbsp oregano
1/2 cup vegan...
The Pisarei are small gnocchi from the city of Piacenza, Emilia Romagna region. Although they may seem similar to usual gnocchi at first glance, they are actually not made with potatoes but with a mixture of flour and old, stale bread. Farmers, traditionally not wealthy, developed this technique...
Beautiful Bel Fiori radicchio adds a splash of drama to this salad but you could use any radicchio leaves you wish. The slight bitterness of the radicchio contrasts well with the creamy mild beans. The vegan aioli is made with the liquid from a can of black beans. I love the pinky-mauve colour...
You could make this soup by substituting potato for parsnip, but I think that the parsnip adds a pleasing sweetness to the beans and works well with tarragon. Dried tarragon is fine to use here. Its a herb which retains its pungency. If you prefer a thick soup, simply use less stock or water...
I debated on whether to use an Indian or a Mexican spice profile for this stuffed pepper recipe. If I try lentils in some shape or form in the future instead of black beans, I think I'll go Indian. Black beans surely say "Mexican" or "Tex-Mex" as the profile flavor. Onions and garlic also...
This is a compilation of a couple of recipes. I picked and chose what ingredients I liked to use, as well as combined the techniques.
1 pound dried cannellini beans
1 quart unsalted homemade or store-bought unsalted chicken stock
3 packets (3/4 ounces)...
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
4 ounces pancetta, diced
1 medium yellow onion, finely diced
2 medium carrots, finely diced
2 medium ribs celery, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup white wine
6 cups low sodium chicken broth...
