Tonight I was the sous-chef for Stirling. He made a Danish dish called biksemad. It's a traditional hash of already cooked meat (usually pork, which this was), potatoes, onions, and bacon, topped with one fried egg per person and a big sprinkle of chopped parsley. It is traditionally served with pickled beets, so we had some of those too. Definitely comfort food and I ate too much.
We had pulled pork with two sauces, potato salad, baked saucy beans and banana bread (that looks burned, but is NOT). It was great, lots of leftovers too...some will go to Mom, tomorrow, and some to the freezer for future enjoyment! Yummy!
I made a one dish meal in the Instant Pot tonight, sort of - started it yesterday, cooking 1 1/2 c dried chickpeas, to have them ready for today. I made sort of a chole masala, but with a bunch of vegetables added, not just the chickpeas. I put the last of my eggplants and okra, and almost the last of my Thai red long beans, plus a diced up green bell pepper. I also took most of the tomatoes I had, and made a purée, of maybe 3 cups, and cooked it down, with the rest of the vegetables, before adding the chickpeas. This mix was pressure cooked for just 3 minutes, then last, tempered with the tarka (not traditional, but I like this in many things, with those curry leaves), and a little cilantro stirred in. One dish meal, a sort of chole masala, with eggplant, okra, bell pepper, and Thai long beans added. by pepperhead212, on Flickr
