Beet Pickled & Herbed Deviled Eggs

June 12th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Serves 6

Ingredients

1 red beet, peeled and chopped
1 cup water
½ cup champagne vinegar (citrus)
2 teaspoons sea salt
6 hard boiled eggs, peeled
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon grainy mustard
1 tablespoon citrus vinegar
1 teaspoon fresh grated horseradish
½ cup (total) chopped chives, tarragon, parsley
Salt/pepper

Directions

In a small saucepan combine the red beets and the water and cook the beets until the water is a deep magenta. Take the beets out of the pan and set aside for another use. Place the beet liquid in a large zip lock bag and add the champagne vinegar and 2 teaspoons sea salt, mix well.

Place the whole hard boiled eggs gently in the zip lock bag and let stand overnight. Strain out the liquid and lay the eggs on paper towels to dry. Cut eggs in half and scoop out the yolk and plan in a small mixing bowl. Set egg whites aside. Mix yolks with the mustard, mayonnaise, citrus vinegar and fresh herbs together, mashing until the desired consistency (some prefer smooth egg yolk mixture and others semi chunky). Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste, about a half teaspoon each. Spoon mixture onto beet pickled egg whites (they will feel firm due to the pickling process). Chill and serve. Garnish with chive sprigs.

Cherry Spicy Brown Mustard

February 2nd, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Makes 3 cups of mustard

INGREDIENTS

1 cup Founders Brewing Company Cerise Cherry Ale (Grand Rapids, Michigan) or any cherry ale
1 cup malt vinegar
½ cup dried cherries, chopped superfine
½ cup whole brown mustard seeds
2 tablespoons dry mustard
1 tablespoon fresh horseradish, grated
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon caraway seeds

DIRECTIONS

In a medium bowl whisk together beer, vinegar, mustard seeds, cherries, let soak at room temperature for about 4 hours or overnight. Place mixture in a blender and add, dry mustard, horseradish, honey, salt and pepper. Blend until a coarse mustard consistency is formed. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in caraway seeds and season with more salt as needed. We want the mixture a little more on the “loose” side as we are using it for a dipping sauce for the pretzels. To make this into thicker mustard, add ½-1 cup more of mustard seeds. Store in refrigerator.

Spicy Horseradish Herb Pretzels

February 2nd, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Makes 12-15 medium pretzels

INGREDIENTS

1 tablespoon sugar
1 package active dry yeast
1½ cups warm water
4 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh horseradish, grated
2 tablespoons of each of the following fresh herbs, chopped: thyme, marjoram, chives, parsley, tarragon
1 large egg, beaten
¼ cup fresh chives, chopped fine, for garnish
Pretzel salt

DIRECTIONS

Mix together sugar, yeast and water in a metal or glass mixing bowl until frothy. Let sit until foamy, about 5-7 minutes. In another large mixing bowl combine flour and salt.

Whisk together 4 cups flour and 1 tablespoon table salt in a large bowl. Add yeast mixture, horseradish and herbs and stir with a wooden spoon until it forms into a soft dough. Gently dust a smooth flat work surface with flour, turn out dough and knead gently, using enough additional flour to make a smooth sticky dough, about 10 minutes (Dough needs to be somewhat sticky to facilitate rolling and forming into pretzels).

Place dough back into the bowl and cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel, let dough sit in warm place until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes. Turn out dough onto a clean work surface and cut into 12-15 equal pieces. Using your palms, roll 1 piece back and forth on a clean dry work surface into a rope about 12″ long. If dough sticks to your hands, lightly dust them with flour. Twist dough into a pretzel shape. (Dough will retract as you form the pretzel.)

Transfer pretzel with your hands to an oiled or lined with parchment paper baking sheet and place all the formed pretzels about 2 inches apart on all sides.

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Let pretzels stand, uncovered, about 20 minutes. Bring a wide 6-quart pot of water to a boil.

Using both hands, carefully add a few pretzels, 1 at a time, to boiling water and cook, turning over once with tongs, until pretzels are puffed and shape is set, about 3 minutes. Transfer parboiled pretzels to a rack to cool. Repeat with remaining pretzels.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper and oil paper, then arrange pretzels on sheet. Brush pretzels lightly with some of egg and sprinkle with pretzel salt and chives. Bake until golden brown and lightly crusted, about 35 minutes. Cool 15 minutes, then serve warm.

Horseradish Tarragon Beef Burger

November 4th, 2009 § 0 comments § permalink

INGREDIENTS

1lb ground beef
2 T chopped fresh tarragon
1 T fresh grated horseradish
1 T red wine vinegar
salt/pepper

PREPARATION

Mix all ingredients together and form patties. Place on wax paper and place in freezer for approximately10 minutes on each side until hard but not totally frozen. Preheat the grill making sure that it is well oiled and clean. Make sure heat is steady and high while cooking burgers. Do not flip burgers multiple times. The key is to flip the burger once or twice but no more. Minimizing flipping also ensures that the burgers stay well formed. Generally speaking, cook meat for two minutes per side for rare burgers, three minutes per side for medium, and four minutes per side for well done burgers. Top with cheese or the condiments of your choice. A simple delicious burger.
