Some of the recipes you'll find inside:
Smothered Pork Chops with Broccoli | Dutch Oven
What’s not to like about tender, juicy pork chops covered in a thick gravy? We browned the chops in bacon fat to give the gravy a richer flavor. Using a steamer basket to prepare the broccoli (which we positioned over the chops and gravy) allowed us to cook the vegetables and chops at the same time.
Bread Pudding | Cook It Three Ways
We transformed bread (challah) into this delicious dessert using a casserole dish, slow cooker, and pressure cooker. Understanding the differences in how the vessels cook ingredients was a key factor in our process of using (or not using) the recipe’s main ingredients as the ingredients behaved differently in each vessel.
Seared Steaks with Crispy Potatoes and Herb Sauce | Skillet
We were inspired by the bright, vibrant flavors of Argentinian chimichurri in developing our own herb sauce. We prepared our sauce with parsley, extra-virgin olive oil, red pepper, red onion, garlic, and other seasonings to give it a fiery flavor. Once we seared the steaks, we used the leftover juices to brown the potatoes, which we microwaved ahead of time for faster preparation.
Stuffed Spiced Eggplants with Tomatoes and Pine Nuts | Slow Cooker
Taking inspiration from Turkish cuisine, we developed a streamlined method for preparing stuffed eggplant. Assembling the ingredients in layers is essential in this recipe to maximize the absorption of flavors in the eggplant. Once we cooked the onion, garlic, and spices in the microwave we added them to the slower cooker along with the tomatoes, cheese, and pine nuts. Resting the eggplant halves cut side down helped the halves absorb the flavors of the filling.
