Roast Beef With Crispy Shallots

Roast Beef With Crispy Shallots

The second meat at my meat slicer party last weekend was roast beef. Roast beef is insanely simple to make at home, especially when you have a meat slicer to cut it paper thin. If you make this same exact recipe and try and cut it with a knife it is going to come out a little chewy unless you really are able to cut it very thin. Anyways, roast beef is roast beef right? Yea it was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and really fresh, but still just roast beef. What made these sandwiches truly memorable though, was the crispy shallots and hint of horseradish mayo, along with fresh baked onion rolls from a local bakery near my friends house who hosted the party.

Salmon Gnocchi in a Creamy Pea Sauce

Salmon Gnocchi in a Creamy Pea Sauce

If I was running a diner a couple decades ago, I would probably call these “salmon croquettes”. If I was running a fancy modern american place I might call them “salmon-potato dice” cause they have the fun square shape. I think salmon gnocchi is a good name for them though. This recipe is inspired by the old school salmon and pea pasta, and also by the upcoming spring when fresh peas will soon be available.

Beastie Week: Red Curry Falafel with Basil-Carrot Raita

Beastie Week: Red Curry Falafel with Basil-Carrot Raita

Ey yo what the falafel, you got to get up awful, early, to fool Mr. Furley

It’s been a long week of Beastie Boy recipes! I’ve really been enjoying it. I have one more for you all, a red curry falafel. I was inspired to make falafel with red curry as the seasoning because I have eaten red curry with chickpeas many times and the flavors mesh really well. I also had the idea because a couple falafel ingredients overlap with red curry ingredients. The falafel came out great, served with a basil-carrot raita each bite was perfection.
