Much like the scene scene from Full Metal Jacket, I firmly believe that “This is my ‘Instantpot chili recipe’. There are many like it, but this one is mine.”, I do not however view it as either my best friend or my life, more a warm and welcoming friend that just makes things a little bit better.
This InstantPot pork chop recipe became a little but of an obsession for me, I love pork, good job really as it is the ubiquitous meat in these parts so I embarked on a few experiments working on a one pot InstantPot Pork Chop recipe.
I don't do a great deal of real 'fusion food' however this delicious Cauliflower Veloute with Turmeric Potatoes definitely falls into that category, with some pretty classical French ideas and techniques all give a little tickle with the Indian flavours I love...
I have been making apple glazed pork ribs for what feels like for ever, lets face it pork and apple and pork are a match made in heaven and it 'just works', as far as I am concerned it is just one of those food relationships that are unquestioned. This recipe was the first rib recipe in my InstantPot, to cut a long story short, it was not the last...
You all know I love a good fakeaway and the sharp eyed of you out there will know there are no pizzas on my website, why, well cooking pizza in a domestic oven is let’s say a challenge, what recipe did I use to check out the Pizza Steel? Well Margherita Pizza of course!
Well where do I start with my Coronation Chicken Recipe? It's a curry, well kinda, it's chicken and mango, well kinda, its a chicken and mango curry salad, kinda... Coronation Chicken was a dish developed for the banquet and Queen Elizabeth II coronation in 1953 and seems to follow on nicely from Jubilee Chicken which was developed for the Silver Jubilee of King George V in 1935, although they are very different dishes.
This BBQ Pork Sandwich is the latest in a number of BBQ pork ideas I have here on Krumpli, to date I have, slow cooker, oven and BBQ versions and this one rounds out my kitchen gadgets by being cooked in the InstantPot. The concept of this dish was to avoid the idea of a pulled pork sandwich but a beautifully cooked carving piece of meat with a lightly sweet fragrant BBQ sauce.
A good burger is a thing of great beauty and my veal burger is a thing of great beauty, in many ways real simple but also really indulgent. Just like most food I think greatness lies in attention to detail, so the Parma ham for this veal burger is cooked between two baking sheets so that it does not shrivel up. It isn't just because it looks better but it eats better too, you don't get one piece of shriveled up ham in the middle but a single layer in every bite.
Sometimes meals really are just beautifully steaming pile of flavour packed food, there is little point in trying to dress up this beef dopiaza as anything other than a wonderful solution to the bitter and biting cold we have at the moment and I would have it no other way. My love of the great Anglo Indian Curry is well documented here and this dish is the first Indian 'Fakeaway' I have cooked in my InstantPot and boy is it good.
This Smoked Mackerel Fusilli With Chili is a super simple, frugal and incredibly quick pasta dish that I see as a winter dish as it contains ingredients that are largely neutral in their seasonality but flavour wise it really screams winter for me. The vibrance of the lemon and chili combination sits so well along side the smoky, salty mackerel and screams the Mediterranean to me.
Yes I know Osso Bucco is traditionally made with Veal and that osso bucco is usually made with white wine, however even in Hungary where Veal is relatively easily available the shin of veal is nigh on impossible to find, so this recipe is a sideways glance at a traditional recipe but one that the InstantPot deals with beautifully and one myself and my wife really love.
