Working with Veal Breast

Chances are you’ve never seen a veal breast. I know I hadn’t up until recently, when my local supermarket found itself with some mistakenly ordered whole veal sides. A veal breast is the same cut of the cow as a brisket. Since the veal is so much younger, it hasn’t had the time to develop… Continue reading Working with Veal Breast

For this Sunday meal I refrained from serving an ego-maniacal overly complicated and fussy dish. Instead we got the value-add out of the dinner by splurging on an absolutely… Continue reading Steak and Potatoes

Sesame Chicken Teriyaki

I used a whole chicken instead of all thighs. We did the whole chicken because hubby does not eat dark meat. I love a good chicken teriyaki so I was looking forward to making this. Let’s start with the sauce. It had a lovely Asian flavor and aroma. I doubled the sauce so I would… Continue reading Sesame Chicken Teriyaki
