RECIPE: Mestizang Kare Kare

You must be wondering about why its called--- Mestizang Kare-Kare, right?

Ingredients:

3-5 pcs lamb chops
1 medium puso ng saging (banana heart), sliced
1 big bunch of peachay
eggplant (optional)
sitaw (optional)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
4 sachets ground Happy Peanuts
1 tsp of peanut butter- I used Reese Creamy
flour or rice flour
1 tsp of bagoong
ground pepper
salt


Instruction:

Boil the lamb chops with the garlic and onion, salt and pepper. When the meat is almost tender, add the puso ng saging. Add some bagoong, peanuts and peanut butter. Use flour to thicken the sauce. Add the pechay last since it cooks easily. Serve with bagoong.

*** Sorry for the unappetizing-looking photo but I assure you that it is super yummy. I ran out of achiote or annato seeds, that's why the sauce is pale in color. And since I made use of lamb chops and not the usual ox tripe or beef, I named the dish--- Mestizang Kare Kare. :)

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.
