Indian Bhuna Gosht

Indian Bhuna Gosht is an exceptional curried lamb main course. It is the “Bhuna” that makes it so special. Bhuna consists of pan-frying the lamb along with certain spices. Because the meat is cooked in its own juices, Indian Bhuna Gosht is a deep, richly flavored dish. It will take you a while to prepare, but believe me, the sitting down to eat part at the end of your labor is well worth it.

New England Lobster Rolls

To make perfect New England lobster rolls, you want to keep it simple. The succulent flavor of lobster meat is in itself what you want featured. Avoid the temptation to add much – if anything – to this simple, yet elegant recipe. Too many extra flavors can wind up overshadowing the unique and subtle flavor of the lobster salad filling. Even the use of sriracha hot sauce, if overdone, can ruin New England Lobster Rolls. You may even want to not use any hot sauce at all, but I find just a bit of it actually adds a “brightening-up” taste to the lobster. Experiment for yourself.

Note: If you are going to use fresh lobster meat, and will cook it yourself, you will need to buy four times the weight (in lobster tail form) of the amount you want to wind up with for your lobster salad. In other words, for this recipe, which calls for 1 pound of lobster meat, you would need four pounds of fresh lobster tails.

The below recipe does not take into account cooking time for the lobster, so for your convenience there is a chart below the recipe which shows how long to steam the tails.

If you love Asian cuisine and enjoy preparing authentic and traditional dishes, then making homemade miso paste is a skill you might want to acquire. Originating in Japan, miso is a fermented food, made with soybeans. And it has for millennia been a staple in their cuisine. But it’s use long ago spread all over Asia, and is highly popular and included in Korean, Chinese, and many other Asian cuisines, as well.

You can, of course, just buy good quality, authentic and traditional miso paste in most major metropolitan areas, around the world. Companies like Maruya Hatcho Co., in Okazaki, Japan, mass produce miso while still using ancient and traditional methods.

You can even purchase from a wide variety here on our online foods store. misoFor making homemade miso paste, you will need just a small amount of already prepared miso – it acts as a “starter”, with the bacteria in it initiating the fermentation process.

But there is nothing quite like the satisfaction of making homemade miso paste yourself, and using it to prepare your favorite Asian dishes. And making homemade miso paste also gives you the ability to adjust the taste with what beans you use, the length of fermentation time, additional kinds of ingredients you can include, etc. – which we get into later in this article.

But first, the basic ingredients and methods for …

Ever since being a boy, I have loved camping. Real camping – the rustic kind, sleeping in tents, fishing and foraging for food, and cooking meals over an open campfire. I was taught, early on, how to do gourmet open fire cooking.

I cringe when I see other campers preparing their “meals” – which most often are hot dogs, or marshmallows, or maybe, for the more “advanced” campers … even a grilled hamburger! winking_smiley

As far as “side dishes” typically go, they are munching on potato chips or Doritos, and perhaps some store-bought deli items.

Not me. Nothing against hot dogs and hamburgers, I love ’em and will sometimes cook and eat them.

SmoreI also do love a good open fire-roasted S’more as much as anybody. But when I go camping, whoever is with me is going to eat very good. I’m talking about real …
