Schwenkbraten

Paula

USA

Dinner

4 LBS boneless pork roast
1 Cup oil
2-3 white onions cut into strips
4 Cloves garlic (to taste)
7 Crushed juniper berries
1 Tbsp german mustard
Thyme, Oregano, Curry, Paprika, Cayenne pepper, Black Pepper

PREPERATION: Traditionally this pork roast is cooked on a swinging grill over beachwood coals. it is very hard to find beechwood here, Oak is an acceptable substitute. Cut the pork into about 8 slices. Place your onions into a bowl and pound them slightly to release their wonderful flavor. Add the remaining ingredients (oil, garlic,juniper berries, mustard and spices) and mix well. Place pork into a dish and cover with mixture. Continue until all of the pork have been covered. marinate for at least 24 hours, covered in the refrigerator. When ready to grill remove pork from refrigerator and let come to room temperature. In the meantime, prepare fire. Oil grill before placing meat. grill pork and onions slowly for about 10-15 minutes on each side(depending on how you like your steak). Serve with Kartoffelsalat, Tomen, Salat and baguette, or Brotchen, if you can find some. *German cooks do not measure these things.... depending on their instincts to guide them to the proper taste.

Set a day aside to make these pizzas, then freeze them. When unexpected company arrives or you arrive home late from work, and you want a good hearty meal instead of fast food, just take a pizza from the freezer (no need to thaw it) remove the wrapper and pop it in the oven. While the pizza is baking, make a green salad, and relax the rest of the evening. These pizza’s are so delicious you will never want a store bought or fast food pizza again!!

TO MAKE PIZZA DOUGH: Heat a very large stainless steel bowl with hot water and pour off the water. Pour 8 cups hot water (105-115) in heated bowl. Add yeast to hot water. Stir to dissolve yeast.

Place dough in greased bowl, turn to grease dough. Cover with towel and place in warm place, away from draft to rise. Let dough rise until doubled in bulk. Punch down and let it rise again. After 2nd. Rising is completed, divide dough into 9 equal size balls, and roll out each ball thin to shape and size of pizza pan. Pinch edge of crust to make thicker.

Bachelor Curry

Bangladesh

Dinner

1 1/2-2 lb. ground beef, or ground turkey
1/8  cup cooking oil
1 small thinly sliced onion
1 1/2  tablespoons crushed garlic
1/2  tablespoon crushed ginger
1 1/2  teaspoons coriander powder
1/8  teaspoon turmeric
1  teaspoon red cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1/2 tablespoon salt

In medium sauce pan, heat cooking oil on medium to medium-high heat. Add onions when oil is hot. (watch out for oil splattering). Stir onions until some of the onions are beginning to turn brown. Add garlic, ginger, coriander, cumin, cloves, salt and cayenne pepper. Add VERY little water (just to keep things stirred) and continue to stir until the spices seem "cooked". You might see a thin film of liquid spices floating on the oil. Add the ground beef, (or turkey) stirring constantly so as not to burn the meat. When all the meat has turned brown, turn the heat down to low or medium low. Let it simmer for 30 to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve over plain rice. Simple and tasty! Add more(or less) red pepper depending on how spicy you want it. I don't like too much salt, so you might want to add more to taste. I encourage experimenting, (adding different vegetables). I have used frozen peas and plain yogurt to reduce the sting of the spices. NOTE: When cooking with turkey, add a little more spice (I usually increase it by 1 1/2 times that of beef).

Try this cooling accompaniment! Combine 1 sliced tomato, and 1 sliced cucumber to 1 cup of plain yogurt. Add teaspoon of cumin, salt and pepper, to taste. Chill and top with fresh mint leaves.
