Oh yeah, I made sushi burritos at home!

I was a little late hearing about this food trend, but better late than never. Sushiritos or sushi burritos, are a great concept. Unfortunately, very few places outside of California make these delicious handheld foods, although major cities like NYC have caught on to the trend. Luckily they are fairly easy to replicate at home.  Feel free to add or remove any ingredients you want, that’s the best part of these burritos – make ’em exactly as you like them. You can also include shredded lettuce, carrots, beets, etc. for even more crispness and veggie goodness,  but here’s the basic recipe for  spicy tuna and California roll inspired sushi burritos to get you started.

Bibimbap in a wok

I love bibimbap, especially Dolsot Bibimbap. But I don’t have a stone bowl, so I used my wok to mimic this Korean staple. The rice doesn’t crisp up as well as the stone bowl, but the dish is still delicious. The recipe is for 1/2 beef and 1/2 soft tofu, but you can double up on one (or both) of the proteins. You can fry the egg separately if you prefer that to adding the egg directly into the rice mixture, or leave the egg out entirely.

Irish Soda Bread from scratch

It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day, so here’s a great recipe for homemade soda bread to go with the best corned beef and cabbage recipe! It has a wonderful crispy crust and mild sweetness. The recipe calls for buttermilk, but if you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can substitute with yogurt and milk (as mentioned in the recipe) with great results, or add 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice to regular milk.

Quick Rare Roast Beef…In a Crockpot!

Most people use their slow cookers for stews and chili, but Crockpots aren’t just for slow cooking. You can make the perfect rare “roast” beef in less than an hour of cooking time. This roast is great warm for dinner, or sliced thinly, it is just like what you get from a deli. This recipe uses a similar process to my crock-pot roast turkey breast. Both are fantastic for sandwiches!
