Souvlaki with Tzatziki

Souvlaki with Tzatziki is marinated pork laced on skewers then grilled and served with Tzatziki for dipping.

The Sauce: Souvlaki Marinade – Mint, oregano, garlic with lemon, red wine vinegar and yogurt seep into bite-size chunks of tender pork.

‘Great Sauces Transform Good Food into Gourmet’ 

Marmalade distrit

Meze’s been dancing about me for months; small saucers of Hummus, Baba Ghannouj, Keftedes, Falafel, tzatziki, olives, Pita Bread, Dolmades, Souvlaki and Labneh all swirling around my head. Gonna write about it but I’ve got a nagging urge to share Soulvaki first.

Pork Souvlaki marinaded and grilled by your Greek mama might be just like mine, or maybe not. Which herb combinations are your favorite or how much lemon’s squeezed in? Do you marinate then thread on skewers or vise versa? Are your sticks short for small bites or full length skewers.

I remember the grilled Soulvaki from the Greek place in the Marmalade district of Salt Lake City. Business development and updated city planning codes forced this dive to shut Souvlaki with Tzatzikidown. How can you improve the neighborhood without great souvlaki? How can you replace the ‘gas station turned into a Greek eatery’ with pristine condos and commercial businesses and chase away the best Greek food in town? Sigh!

Over and over I concocted variations, different combinations of souvlaki marinade, until I found one that tastes like that Greek place and now I’m sharing it with you. If you’re missing it too, you can reinvent it in your own kitchen.

You may also enjoy Hummus, Baba Ghannouj, Falafel, Labneh, Cannellini Hummus, Tzatziki Feta Dip and Pita Bread.

Fresh Cranberry Salsa

Part 2 of 3 part series “Fresh Cranberry Sauces”. Click here for Part 1, click here for Part 3.

My nephew Chris is a food enthusiast. He’s a great cook and loves to experiment in the kitchen. Some years ago he and his family joined us for Thanksgiving. It just happened to be the first year I served Fresh Cranberry Salsa in my mini Cranberry Buffet. His ‘first bite’ reaction revealed, “On a scale of one to ten, this salsa is an eleven.”

Not only is this salsa easy to make, the flavor is unexpectedly unique. In a recent poll, albeit random and unscientific , it was the unanimous favorite. My Visiting Teachers, two women from my congregation assigned to visit and watch over me, stopped by and were given a taste of all three cranberry sauces in this series. They loved all of them but had never tasted a cranberry salsa before. Very distinctive, they thought it the perfect compliment for roast turkey. The lovely thing about it is you don’t cook it, just a little food processing and an overnight stay in the fridge to let the flavors marry. You control how much snap it has—more seeds and veins, more heat. Less jalapeno, less heat. Halleluia! One more do-ahead dish.

“Cranberry Sauce” Series

Seven years ago I performed bypass on canned cranberry sauce my family served for decades. I let my cranberry juices flow dreaming up some gourmet twists for the thirty-guest menu. My strategy consisted of a selection of fresh and assorted cranberry sauces. I served four options, three freshly homemade plus some canned jellied cranberry. Dad loves canned so it was irreplaceable.

Since then I’ve collected and tested a variety of fresh cranberry sauces and it was hard to narrow to three for this series. Selecting favorites requested for repeat appearances year after year, this trio of sauces complements each other by showcasing their contrasting textures and flavors. One is traditional with a blush of cinnamon and orange, another an uncooked salsa with jalapeno heat, and the final a chunky nutty sauce with concentrated flavor and texture.

Recipes for fresh cranberry sauces, almost without fail, call for one 12-ounce package of fresh cranberries. If you are having a smaller dinner party or you want to serve several choices you may need smaller recipes. Each of these calls for 6 ounces or one-half package and that leaves some extra cranberries to garnish your ice water. Although they don’t change the taste, cranberry laced water creates a festive flourish.

Shrimp and Pork Balls with Spicy Lime Dipping Sauce

For Appetizer and Dessert Night at my Ladies Church Social, I sign on the dotted line to make an Appetizer. Hum…what to bring; there are so many tasty choices. I may as well say up front that I am an appetizer lover. I don’t care what you call it, hor d’oeuvres, tapas, small bites, finger food or starters, I adore them. Beautiful bite size nibbles with potent flavors, I love to stake out a local restaurant with mouthwatering appetizers and enjoy a couple with a side salad and skip the dinner menu.
Back to my appetizer, I narrowed my selection to something Asian and chose one of my favorites, Shrimp and Pork Balls with Spicy Lime Dipping Sauce. The balls are loaded with monochromatic green ingredients, cilantro, scallions, lime, jalapeño, and ginger. Each one is potent enough to stand alone in a dish. Teaming up, they create a compelling and complex combination. The dipping sauce mirrors the ingredients of the shrimp and pork balls so all the flavors reach your palette instantly. During the Ladies Social I had a couple of people find me and say they are delicious. Score!

Pork Chops with Pink Mushroom Sauce

Moist tender pork chops simmered in country gravy.

Comfort food

This is an easy way to whip up scrumptious tender pork chops with some fresh ingredients and help from condensed soup.  It is definitely comfort food, easy to make and a crowd pleaser.  You can use any cut of pork chop, which ever you like.

 
Recipe: Pork Chops with Pink Mushroom Sauce

Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 40 Minutes | Yield: 4 servings | Level: Easy

IngredientsFood-Blog-Pork-Chops-chopped-onions

  • 4-6 pork chops, 4 large or 6 small
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2-3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 diced onion
  • salt and pepper

Pink Mushroom Sauce

  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

Instructions
1 Fire up a frying pan to med high.  Dredge chops with flour and season with salt and pepper.  Add oil and then the chops browning on both sides.
Pork-Chops-with-Country-Gravy
2 Toss in the onions and cook till softened.

3 Meanwhile mix all the pink mushroom sauce ingredients together in a bowl then glop over the chops. It will be pretty thick.

4 Turn the heat down to simmer and cover.  Simmer for about 20-30 minutes.  Stir the sauce around about 3 times during braising.  As it simmers, the moisture and steam will loosen the pink sauce and create a tasty gravy.  The chops become very tender and coated with sauce.  Serve the sauce over rice or baked potatoes.

Information
Pink Sauce – A pink sauce is made of some combination of cream/milk and tomato. Here the blend of a cream soup with ketchup makes the sauce turn pink. Once cooked, the pan drippings turn the pink sauce into a rich caramel color.

Doubling and Freezing – If you have another frying pan you can have a double recipe going at the same time without adding much time to the prep. Once it is done, cool the second pan and put one chop with some sauce in a quart freezer bag and freeze. It will give you 4-6 individual main dishes ready to go. On a busy night, defrost and heat the chop and bake a potato in the microwave. Add a leftover veg or a garden salad and you have a quick, easy individual dinner.
