Featured Recipe: Ginger-Soy Skirt Steak

Ginger-Soy Skirt Steak

"Loaded with aromatics, this marinade is a perfect match for grilled steaks. Marinate the steak for a few hours to really soak up the flavors, and serve it thinly sliced with my Parsnip Puree (page 113) or Parmigiano-Reggiano Potato Wedges (page 213). We used the marinade with the sliced beef tenderloin on our cover."

Ingredients

  • Soy sauce, 1 cup
  • Balsamic vinegar, 1/2 cup
  • Brown sugar, 1/4 cup firmly packed
  • Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 cup
  • Sesame oil, 1/4 cup
  • Fresh ginger, 3 Tbsp. chopped
  • Sriracha sauce, 1 Tbsp.*
  • Garlic, 3 cloves chopped
  • Skirt steak, 3 lb.
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

1. Whisk together first 8 ingredients and 1 cup water in a large shallow dish or zip-top plastic freezer bag; add steak. Cover or seal, and chill 2 to 6 hours.

2. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Remove steak from marinade, discarding marinade. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes. Sprinkle with desired amount of salt and pepper.

3. Grill steak, covered with grill lid, 8 minutes or to desired degree of doneness. Let stand 10 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices. 6 to 8 servings

*Substitute 1 chopped jalapeño pepper for sriracha sauce.


Featured Recipe: Corn Raita

"The inspiration for this recipe is from the classic Indian condiment, raita. The addition of corn gives it new personality. Toasting the corn draws out its lovely sweetness and lends texture to the spread. Grill the corn whole and then cut the kernels off the cob or as per the instructions below. I keep a batch of this simple recipe on hand in the fridge to add to countless dishes, but I usually end up eating it one spoonful at a time on its own. Try a few spoonfuls on a skirt steak or slathered in a pita sandwich. Nirvana!"

Ingredients

  • Fresh corn kernels, 2 cups
  • Plain Greek yogurt, 2 cups
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, 2 Tbsp. chopped
  • Ground cumin, 1 tsp.
  • Kosher salt, 1/2 tsp
  • Freshly ground black pepper, 1/4 tsp.
  • Red onion, 2 Tbsp. finely chopped
  • Jalapeño pepper, 1 seeded and minced (optional)

Directions

1. Heat a large well-seasoned cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add corn to pan; cook 1 minute without stirring. Stir and cook 2 more minutes or until corn is beginning to brown. Transfer corn to a plate; cool completely.

2. Stir together yogurt and next 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Fold in corn and onion. Add jalapeño pepper, if desired. 3 cups

Format: Hardcover
Todd English has created a cookbook that produces some great dishes with ingredients that are ones that you would have purchased every day at the grocery store. Most dishes have only 10 or less ingredients and are relatively easy to prepare, especially for an experienced cook. English lists his pantry ingredients and his kitchen equipment and then gives some instructions to make his `basics'. His basics are some combinations of salt, vinaigrettes, butters, spice blends and several others; but best of all he has a marvelous one that he calls ACG - anchovies, capers and garlic sauce - on pasta it is wonderful.

There are pictures of his finished recipes, his ingredients and even many pictures of instructions. Recipes included are; the basics, cocktails and appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, vegetables, starches, birds and eggs, meats, fish and shellfish, dishes for kids and family (like chicken tenders and pizza),and desserts.

Our family has really liked the pasta with shrimp and olive sauce and the pappardelle pasta with dreamy mushroom sauce, and avocado soup. The recipes in this book are simple recipes, but create fantastic dishes. Included is a chart for metric equivalents and an index.
This would be a good book to add to cookbook collections or even for a gift for beginning cooks who would like to improve their repertoire.

The recipes (as one would expect from Mr. English) are fine. But I have to comment on the printing in this book, which is (on some pages) almost impossible to decipher. Small white print against a mottled grayish-white background. Really? White print against pale yellow? These kind of "creative layouts" might be all right for 20 year olds, but this 68 year old would need a magnifying glass to read some of the recipes. If you occasionally have trouble reading the small print in Compact Disc booklets, give this volume a pass!

This cookbook has easily become my favorite cookbook to use. Everything I have made has been delicious and my family always comments at how good the food is. The recipes are easy to follow (note: this does not necessarily mean fast to make - I always read the recipe the night before in case anything has to marinade, slow roast, etc, and I make sure to have everything prepared before I start because sometimes the ingredients have to be added fast). The majority of ingredients are easy to find or I already currently stock them (or they are easy to substitute). My cooking confidence has increased because everything I've made so far has been successful. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for simple, delicious, and somewhat unique recipes.

I bought this after eating in his NY restaurant at the old Plaza Hotel and tasting the best bolognese sauce ever. The recipe is in this book and comes out exactly as in the restaurant every time. Wonderful, easy to follow recipes for both everyday and company. Very straight forward format. Todd English is one of my new favorite chefs and I will purchase other of his cookbooks.

I'm new to cooking, and have learned a lot - but seasonings are clearly my weak link. Hoped this book would be helpful, but didn't want to spring for the full price on yet another cookbook. Grabbed it at a discount after Thanksgiving, and am glad I did! Todd gives clear, useful explanations of what to do - and why. Can't wait to try his recipes. Even at full price, it would have been worth it.

Simplicity incorporating fabulous home made herb and spice blends that really transform tired, old, done to boredom classics. Love Todd's use of middle eastern influences in his vast experience of European cuisine.

The graphics and photos are very eye appealing. The recipes look enticing. I have not had a chance to try the recipes yet, but I know that Todd English has a very good reputation as a chef and has won many awards for his work.

I purchased this book and a Bobby Flay cook book at the same time to try and get some new receipes. The Todd English book is substantially better than the Bobby Flay cook book. The recipes are relatively simplistic but with great taste. It's clear to see exactly what ingredients you need and I love the fact that they cover some real basiscs like pantry items etc. The photo illustrations are just the icing on the cake! Definitely recommend this book for novice all the way through to exprienced cooks.
