Asian-Style Chicken Meatballs in Ginger Soy Broth Image by: Jodi Pudge
We've added fresh ginger and soy sauce to these lean meatballs and simmered them in a spicy aromatic broth for a meal you'll definitely want to make again.
Meatballs: In bowl, combine chicken, bread crumbs, green onions, garlic, ginger and soy sauce. Firmly roll by 2 tbsp into balls; arrange on rimmed baking sheet. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook meatballs, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 4 minutes.
Broth: Meanwhile, in saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; sauté bok choy, carrots and half of the green onions until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add ginger, garlic and half of the chili pepper; sauté for 1 minute.
Stir in meatballs, broth and 1 cup water; bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook until instant-read thermometer inserted in several meatballs reads 165°F, about 5 minutes. Discard ginger. Stir in lime juice, soy sauce and salt.
Divide meatballs among serving bowls; top with broth mixture. Sprinkle with remaining chili pepper and green onions.
The Ultimate Beef Stew image Image by: The Ultimate Beef Stew image
This classic warm-you-up stew becomes even more comforting when made with well-marbled pot roast rather than the usual stewing beef. The fat melts slowly as it cooks, tenderizing the beef into juicy melt-in-your-mouth morsels. A slow finish in the oven gives the stew its rich, hearty texture.
Steak and Broccoli Stir-Fry Image by: Stacey Brandford
The secret to a perfectly cooked beef stir-fry is placing the steak in the freezer before slicing it. That way, the meat will become nice and firm, allowing you to cut the meat into thin, even slices with ease.
Place beef in freezer until firm, about 20 minutes. Thinly slice across the grain.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, whisk together oyster sauce, chili garlic sauce, half each of the salt and pepper and 1/3 cup water. Set aside.
In bowl, toss together beef, garlic, egg yolk, cornstarch and remaining salt and pepper.
In large nonstick skillet or wok, heat 1 tsp of the oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry half of the beef mixture until browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer to plate. Repeat with 1 tsp of the remaining oil and the remaining beef mixture.
In same pan, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry onion and mushrooms until onion is golden and mushrooms are softened, about 5 minutes. Add broccoli, red pepper and 2 tbsp water; stir-fry until broccoli is tender-crisp, about 8 minutes. Return beef and any accumulated juices to pan. Stir in oyster-sauce mixture; cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.
Nutty Quinoa and Mushroom Strudel Image by: Jodi Pudge
The hardest part of entertaining? Pleasing all types of palates, especially when you have guests with restricted diets. This savoury vegan entrée is filled with quinoa and mushrooms for a satisfying, delicious meal even meat lovers will enjoy. To serve the strudel as a side, cut it into eight to 10 smaller pieces.
In saucepan of boiling water, cook quinoa according to package instructions. Stir in pine nuts, sage and half each of the salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, in nonstick skillet, heat 1 tbsp of the coconut oil over medium-high heat; cook mushrooms, onion, garlic and remaining salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until softened and no liquid remains, about 12 minutes. Add mustard and vinegar; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
In small microwaveable bowl, microwave remaining coconut oil until melted.
Place 1 sheet of the phyllo on work surface with long end facing you; keep remainder covered with damp towel (to prevent drying out). Lightly brush phyllo with some of the remaining coconut oil. Top with second sheet of phyllo; lightly brush with some of the remaining coconut oil. Repeat layers with remaining phyllo and some of the remaining coconut oil.
Spoon quinoa mixture into 5-inch wide strip over top of phyllo, leaving 2-inch border at each short end and 2-inch border at long end farthest from you. Top with mushroom mixture, red peppers, strained tomatoes and arugula. Fold in short ends over borders. Starting from long end closest to you, roll up tightly.
Place strudel, seam side down, on parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet. Brush phyllo with remaining coconut oil. Bake in 400°F oven until golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes. Slice crosswise into 6 pieces.
Tip from The Test Kitchen: Red quinoa boasts the same nutritional value and nutty, earthy flavour as white quinoa while also adding a vibrant, festive colour to dishes.
