I tried my hand at cassoulet (when it's in the mid-teens outside you kind of hunger for this kind of food). The "real" cassoulet takes two days but I found a recipe that was more like two hours. The concept is brown various meats separately, then carrots / celery / onions, then put it all together with white beans, chicken broth and seasonings. Bake for an hour. Mine could have baked longer but there are leftovers...


I know, I have bragged about my ribs but I couldn't resist posting this picture of slow roasted ribs (3-4 hours at 250d) with ginger / scallion sauce and spicy, toasted rice krispies.

Soups On

This Girl and the Goat is really, really rich - and even better the next day with some wide noodles. It's made of pork loin (slow cooked for 3 hours), brown sugar, garlic, onion, red wine, (canned) tomatoes,  peanut butter, chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, dijon style mustard, fish sauce, fennel seeds, sambal, coconut milk, lime juice, roasted peanuts and cilantro!

I'm looking forward to making it again it was so good.
