Leave it to Mark Bittman to show us how to make the best version of this side standard, Green Beans with Crisp Shallots. Bittman's go to method for beans with a little bit of bite involves briefly boiling the green beans, shocking them in ice water, and finishing them with a quick trip to the sauté pan. Tossed with crispy sweet butter and olive oil fried shallots, and almonds, if you'd like, this is the recipe that'll have your green beans moving out of blah territory and into much tastier place.
This caramelized shallot pickle is a fun condiment for a cheese plate or a salad of sturdy lettuce. Try it on a burger or as part of a homemade pizza party....
A last-minute drizzle of balsamic adds a tart glaze to these crispy sprouts.
There are loads of hanger steak and shallot recipes out there for a reason—because they taste really freaking good together. It's just a fact. This slight variation from Food & Wine adds mushrooms for a bit of meatiness. Really, this is all about how the softened and sweet shallots balance the succulent and surprisingly rich steak.
Shallots, butter, wine, rosemary, and garlic: you can hardly get more French than that. Sometimes a good dinner is not about expanding your palate with new cuisines and exotic ingredients; sometimes the ticket is what's familiar and guaranteed to be delicious.
The ultimate home-made version of the classic green bean casserole with fresh green beans, a rich mushroom sauce, and crispy fried shallots.
The pork was incredibly moist, and the apples lent a light sweetness that never became cloying. Served with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans, the meal felt like an indulgence.
Lately I've been drawn to interesting takes on the classic vinaigrette formula. First I was swooning over Rick Bayless' guajilo chili dressing. Now I've fallen for this recipe from Bon Appetit.
I am addicted to this dish. Usually I have to cook so many new dishes a week, I don't have time to revisit the really impressive ones. But I've made an exception for this one. I understand on paper it doesn't sound like it should work. The recipe from Eggs On Sunday uses a lot of maple syrup, Too sticky sweet? Nope, everything is balanced by the cider vinegar and black peppercorns, which transform into this rich, meaty glaze that miraculously makes each bite taste like the best rib eye you can imagine.
Who knew that crab, jalapeños, and mint played so well together? Before I had a version of this dish at Chicago's Cibo Matto, I'd never seen the three mentioned together in the same sentence. But I was astonished by how they balance each other with the pasta. The sweet crab meat is kept in check by the spicy chiles, and the mint somehow cools it all down.
I haven't exactly been clamoring to get wheat berries in my life, but it was still cool to finally make their acquaintance. This recipe from Chow features the grain in a summery little salad with currants, pistachios, and some spicy harissa. The wheat berries are simply cooked until tender in simmering water, which should take less than an hour. They come out kind of tasting like couscous, meaning they still have a little bite to them.
