Healthy Diabetes Recipe – Watch What You Eat

Diabetes Recipe Books may be hard to understand but there are sites in the internet that offer different kinds of recipes that taste good. There are tips to help prepare their meals since you have to set aside some portion for them if they are on a strict sugar-free, salt-free and cholesterol-free diet. If you have a diabetic in your family, dining out at fast-foods may become a constant argument since they will tell you that their doctor said this their doctor said that so to cut the exchange of words, why not prepare food that is intended for people like them.

Diabetes Recipe meals are not exclusively made for them. You could also enjoy such meals if you think you are on the borderline to being a diabetic, diabetes runs in your family or you just want to loose weight. It would be best to inform and educate other members of the family that you are preparing a healthy concoction for the coming weeks so they would not be shocked that you seem to have forgotten that food has flavors. There will come a time that you may have exhausted all the fish in the sea to make several of the offered menus.   Worry not since you still can introduce red meat to your diabetic mother or father and your whole family.

Did you know that eating red meat once in a while can be good for the body too? There are some people who get hungry more faster if they live on fish and if they are diabetics, it would be wiser to shift to something filling in order to avoid blood sugar drops. Keep in mind that when you prefer to serve meat, you must get the lean cut so as to not introduce fat in the diet. According to the Diabetes Recipe, a good way to cook meat is by grilling so excess fat just drips. Don’t gather the drippings to make gravy! It’s just like squeezing lemons on an open wound.   Caring for a diabetic has its fair share of ups and down after all.

Things I’ve Learned About Dutch Oven Bread That You Won’t Find in the Recipe

Over the past year, I’ve learned some things about bread making. And along the way, I assumed that these were things that everybody knew, and I had just been the slow one. I didn’t really talk about it much with people, because I assumed that they’d just say, “Well, duh, when did you figure THAT one out?”

But I discovered that most dutch oven chefs also didn’t know a lot of the things I was learning, so I started to come out of my shell and share.

So, here are the things I’ve learned about baking yeast bread in a dutch oven:

* The Recipe is Only Half What You Need

Baking good bread is half ingredients, and half technique. It’s as important to learn how to combine the ingredients and what to do with them as it is what ingredients to combine. This is where so many simple recipes fail you.

* Enrichments are great, but not always necessary

Really, all you absolutely need to make bread are four basic ingredients: Flour, salt, yeast, and water. If you can do it with those, you can do it with anything else you wanna add. I’ve learned that with just those ingredients, you can make a very fluffy and tasty bread!

* You Need to Knead

Kneading is not only a great way to mix in the right amount of flour, it also develops the gluten strands and makes it so that the bread can trap the gas that the yeast makes. That makes the bread rise. For so long, I would be frustrated that my bread wasn’t rising. It would take FOREVER. I didn’t know what was wrong with me. I’d knead the bread as long as the recipe said to, so why wasn’t it working?

Just like different flours absorb water differently, they also take varying amounts of kneading. You can’t definitively say, “knead for 8 minutes” and know that it’ll be enough. You need to do the “Windowpane Test”. That’s the only way to know.

Cut off a small piece of the dough you’re kneading. Roll it into a ball in your palms. Then, working it in a circle, begin to stretch it out flat in the air. Pull it evenly apart, like you’re stretching out a pizza dough. Keep stretching it thinner and thinner. Watch how long it takes to tear. If you can stretch it out so thin it becomes translucent, like a window pane, without it tearing, then you’ve kneaded it enough. If not, put that piece back in the dough ball and keep kneading.

* Pre-Heat the Oven

It turns out that when you shove a ball of dough into an already heated oven, that initial blast of heat will make the dough “spring”. The trapped gas expands, the moisture in the dough turns to steam, and the whole ball just poofs. You get a bigger loaf, with a softer crumb.

One simple method is to pre-heat the lid of the dutch oven. After your bread has risen and you’ve shaped it, put it in an oiled dutch oven to proof. In the meantime, put some (a lot) of coals on the lid and set it aside. When the loaf is ready, take some of the coals off the lid and put them in a ring. Set the dutch oven on the ring of coals, and put the lid on. The advantage of this method is that you’re not handling the bread much, and so there’s less of a chance of punching it down as you’re trying to maneuver it into a hot dutch oven. You can also do some fun shapes, like braids and rings. It’s much easier to do rolls this way, too.

* Use a Thermometer

It can be difficult to strictly regulate the internal temperature of a dutch oven. Counting coals is a good idea, but if it’s cold out, or windy, or any of a number of factors, the heat can vary. That means, I’m never sure when it’s done. Cooking a certain length of time is no guarantee. Looking at the “golden brown” of the crust doesn’t work, because I can never tell if it’s done inside. In a dutch oven, it’s not always practical to reach in, lift out the loaf and thump it.

My solution? Stick a meat thermometer in it. If it’s between 180 and 200, it’s done. 180 for the lighter types of breads, 200 for heavier breads.

So, there you have my ideas on making breads in a dutch oven. Follow the recipe, and follow these hints, and you’ll do better than you did before, I can almost guarantee!

Samgyeopsal Gui – Korean Bbq Pork Belly Recipe

This delectable Korean BBQ recipe will comfortably feed 6 people.
Samgyeopsal Gui

4 pounds of fresh pork belly
Green onions
Green chili peppers
Mushrooms
Carrot
Garlic
Lettuce
Hot pepper flakes
Soy sauce
Sugar
Honey
Hot pepper paste
Soybean paste
Sesame seeds and sesame oil

Cooking Method

First, brush your table-top BBQ grill lightly with oil and then bring it up to a high heat, place the pork belly onto the grill and then cook it until it is done.

Once cooked, the pork can be removed, sliced and then instantly served into lettuce wraps alongside the accompanyments. They are best eaten straight away, in one mouthful as is typical of the way the meal is eaten in Korea.
To make the Ssamjang

To make the ssamjang, take the following ingredients and simply mix them together thoroughly in a bowl and then transfer to dipping dishes and serve with the meal.

1/4 cup soy bean paste
2 tbs hot pepper paste
1 chopped green onion
1 minced clove of garlic
2 tsp. of honey
2 ts sesame seeds
1 tbs sesame oil
To make the Green onion salad

To make the green onion salad, thinly slice 2 handfuls of green onions and then soak them for 10 minutes in cold water. Take a large mixing bowl and then add 1/4 cup soy sauce, 2 tbls. of pepper flakes, 2 tsp. sugar, 1 tbls. of sesame seeds, and 1 tbls. of sesame oil.

Now simply drain the sliced onions and then add them to the sauce and combine together.

To make the vegetables

This part is quick and easy, all you need to do is thoroughly rinse and drain a head of lettuce, and then take the mushrooms, carrot and chilli, and chop them into small peices and place them in a bowl ready to serve alongside the dip and accompaniments.
Samgyeopsal Gui Accompaniments

The most popular accompaniments for samgyeopsal are lettuce and garlic, though it is also commonly served with other sides, such as perilla leaves, sliced green peppers, green onion salad, and kimchi.

Garlic, onions, and kimchi can be either grilled with the meat or consumed raw with the cooked meat.

Samgyeopsal is often served with at least two types of dipping sauces which are ssamjang (a fairly hot paste consisting of Korean chili paste), soybean paste, sesame oil, and a variety of other ingredients.

The other most common dipping sauce is called gireumjang which consists largely of a combination of salt and sesame oil, along with a small amount of ground black pepper.
Eating Samgyeopsal Gui

Prior to consumption, the large slices of meat are cut into small pieces. The best way to eat samgyeopsal is to place a slice of the cooked meat on a leaf of lettuce and/or a perilla leaf with some cooked rice and ssamjang, and to roll it into a wrap.

This is called sangchu-ssam.

When enjoying Samgyeopsal Gui at home, try roasting some garlic and spicy chilies on your grill / hibachi,  and then add them to the lettuce wrap as it adds another layer of texture and flavor to the dish.

I have found it useful to BBQ the meat fairly quickly on a high heat, this helps to ensure that the flavorsome meat juices do not cook out and this results in a much better taste.

This delectable Korean BBQ recipe will comfortably feed 6 people.

Easy Recipe For Cooking a Beef Roast

When cooking a beef roast it is important to know that seasoning added to the surface of the meat before roasting will only penetrate the meat a small fraction. Large beef roasts, like beef ribs and rounds usually have mostly fat covering or bone. The reason the seasoning of a beef roast has little effect is because the fat and bones are not commonly eaten. This is why it is important to know two alternative techniques when seasoning a beef roast right before roasting.

1. Marinate the meat or apply seasonings in advance, to give the time for flavors to penetrate.

2. Serve the beef roast with a flavorful sauce, gravy, or jus. The sauce serves as a seasoning and favoring for the meat.

3. Another way to add flavor to beef roasts is to smoke-roast them. The flavor of wood smoke in cooked meats is delicious.

When cooking beef roasts it is also important to roast them fat side up. When you roast them with the fat side up, the fat melts and runs down the sides and provides continuous basting. Also, when cooking a beef roast, it is better to cook the meat on low temperatures. This increases the tenderness in the beef roast.

ROAST RIB OF BEEF with Au Jus/Serves 20 to 25

Ingredients

– 20lb beef rib, roast ready, bone in (average size)
– 8oz Onions
– 4oz Carrots
– 4oz Celery
– 2qt Brown stock
– Salt, to taste
– Pepper, to taste

How To Put It Together

1. Place the meat fat side up in a roasting pan.

2. Use a thermometer and insert it in the center of the roast.

3. Place meat in a preheated 300 degrees F oven. Roast until rare or medium done, as desired, allowing for carryover cooking. Thermometer readings are, Rare: 120 degrees F, Medium: 130 degrees F. Note: the outer slices will be cooked more than the center. Roasting time will be at least 3 to 4 hours.

4. Remove the meat from the pan and let stand in a warm place 30 minutes before carving.

5. Drain off all but about 3 to 4 oz of the fat from the roasting pan. Try to keep any juices in the pan. Add the mirepoix (onions, carrots, celery) to the pan.

6. Set the pan over high heat and cook until mirepoix is brown and moisture has evaporated, leaving only fat, mirepoix, and browned drippings.

7. Pour off any excess fat.

8. Pour about 1 pt of stock into the roasting pan to deglaze it. Stir over heat until brown drippings are dissolved.

9. Pour the deglazing liquid and mirepoix into a saucepot with the remaining stock. Simmer until mirepoix is soft and liquid is reduced by about one-third.

10. Strain through a china cap lined with cheesecloth. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

11. When serving, cut down beside the bones to free the meat, and slice the meat across the grain.

12. Serve each slice with Jus.

Chicken Parmigiana (short from parma) is actually an Australian pub favorite. It is typically a piece of chicken breast or a slice of eggplant which is crumbed, unfathomable cooked and topped with an optional cut of ham, tomato sauce and cheese.

Notwithstanding, in the United States, chicken parmigiana is commonly served both the centerpiece of a meal usually accompanied with a spaghetti like pasta and on sandwiches, especially subs. It mostly consists of a fried, breaded cutlet, a marinara or spaghetti sauce, and mozzarella cheese. “Parmigiana” is oftentimes used to relate to other sandwiches with marinara sauce and cheese, such as meat, eggplant and meatball. Inferior frequent ingredients include shrimp and sausage and peppers. Though parmigiana means lite rally “from Parma” (a town in Italy), the name derives from parmigiana a Italian recipe prefab with cooked aubergine, tomato sauce and mozzarella.

Wild Risotto Recipe

This colourful risotto makes an excellent healthy dinner party main course if served with salad – and it’s easy to make a vegan version, too…

Serves: 4

1 l/1 ¾ pints vegetable stock (you may need more)
10ml/2 tsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
375g/12 oz arborio rice
150ml/5 fl oz dry white wine
15g/1/2 oz dried cep mushrooms
/1/2 oz butter (or vegan margarine, if making the vegan recipe)
225g/8oz mixed wild mushrooms, sliced
100g/4oz wild rice, cooked
50g/2oz Camargue red wild rice, cooked
50g/2oz vegetarian pecorino cheese (optional – omit for vegan recipe)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1. Bring the stock to the boil in a large saucepan and keep it simmering.

2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in another large saucepan and fry the onion until soft and just starting to colour. Add the arborio rice and cook for 2 minutes, stirring all the time.

3. Pour in the wine and cook for 5 minutes. Start to add the stock using a large ladle. Cook gently, stirring regularly and making sure all the stock has been absorbed before adding the next ladle full. This should take about 25-30 minutes .

4. While the rice is cooking, cover the ceps with boiling water and soak for about 15-20 minutes. Drain, reserving the soaking liquid and chop. Heat the butter/vegan margarine in a frying pan and quickly cook the sliced wild mushrooms for about 5 minutes. Add all the mushrooms to the rice together with the two cooked wild rices and the reserved soaking liquid. Add a little more stock if necessary and heat through thoroughly.

5. Remove from the heat and if using, stir in the pecorino cheese. Season to taste and serve immediately.

Top tip: The liquid from soaking dried mushrooms is full of flavour. It is a good idea to strain it through fine muslin before adding it to a dish as there can be a gritty residue from the mushrooms.
