RECIPE: Lamb Chops Caldereta

Availed of the B1T1 Lamb Chops at Rustan's Fresh last night so we are in for a meaty week. (Sings--- Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb... Mary had a little lamb ..) Alas, today is a rainy Tuesday afternoon so grilling is definitely a no-no. Luckily, daughter loves caldereta so its Lamb Chops Caldereta Night for us.



Ingredients:

Lamb Chops, whole chops (desired number of pieces)
Potatoes (not ba-ba-ba-na-na-na-na ), quartered
Carrots, big cubes
Bell Pepper, optional (some doesn't like bell pepper)
Bayleaf, 7-10 leaves
1 medium garlic, crushed
1 onion, sliced
Ground Pepper
Salt
Liver Spread
1 tbsp Peanut Butter (a cousin taught me that peanut butter makes the caldereta creamy)

Instruction:

Boil lamb chops with the bayleaf, garlic and onions until the meat is almost tender. Add potatoes and carrots and bell pepper, and the liver spread and peanut butter. Season with ground pepper and salt until desired taste is achieved.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
