King Salmon and a couple of quick recipes!

Hi Folks-

Hope everyone is enjoying this summer that seems to be speeding by! I know Peter and I are going to try to sneak one more little vacation in or maybe a couple of long weekends.

I riffed on a couple of New York Times recipes this weekend to good effect. Made hamburgers with chopped Hatch green chilies and garlic, then spread a layer of green chilies on top and then a slice of Monterey Jack cheese, finished with a handful of chopped cilantro, absolutely delicious!

I also made their hunan beef recipe but went so far off the reservation with that I don’t think they’d recognize it :-).

Marinade of 2TBL soy, 1TBL sherry and ½ a TBL each of flour and corn starch. For the two of us I used 1 house cut ribeye cut across the grain, into thin strips. Make that marinade, slice your beef and then prep, 2 TBL garlic, 1TBL ginger, 1 TBL cumin and 2 to 4 tsp red pepper flakes (we used two and was just spicy enough for us). I used my wok which I think is best for this. Heat about a cup of peanut oil in the bottom of the wok, while its heating stir your beef into the marinade. When its hot, put half the beef in and cook, stirring a bit for 2 minutes or so, remove to paper towel to drain grease, do the next batch. Drain all the oil out of the pan except about a TBL and then add a TBL spoon of sesame oil. Take the little dish of seasonings you set aside and put it in the wok, stirring until it becomes fragrant, 1 – 2 minutes. Toss the beef back in, stirring to coat completely and serve with a handful of chopped scallions or cilantro. Turn off the heat and eat!

Local berries from Elmore Roots and Leah’s Berry farm keep popping up at the market, they go fast though. Kyle at 1000 Stone farm is bring in great greens, cherry tomatoes, pea shoots, sprouts, cucumbers and this week we will have broccolini from there as well! Getting dinner at the market is always great but this time a year, whew, got to love it.
