Weekend Cooking: Simple Asian Meals by Nina Simonds
Simple Asian Meals to find quick weeknight dinners. There are plenty to choose from except I picked the one meal that took longer than 30 minutes to make: Sumptuous Balsamic-Glazed Short Ribs with Garlic. I've been on a short rib kick. I love how tender and flavorful they can be. But this recipe takes about 3 hours to make. Not something I'd make on a Tuesday night but it was a delightful Sunday night supper.
I have a few other recipes earmarked to try like Saucy Hoisin Pork Roll Ups and Seared Black Bean Chicken over Crisp Noodles. Overall great cookbook.

Looks good! Haven't eaten many Asian dishes!ReplyDelete
I like Asian...and I love simple..so this sounds like a delightful book.ReplyDelete
Simple and Asian = two words that apply to most of my weekday meals :) 30 minutes max is perfect for a quick dinner! I usually can't be bothered to spend more time in the kitchen.ReplyDelete
I love those kind of long braised dinners on a cool Autumn weekend, yours looks delicious! I'm looking forward to hearing more about the Black Bean Chicken with Crispy Noodles when you make that, it sounds very good as well.ReplyDelete
I like Asian cooking. This looks like a nice addition to a cookbook collection!ReplyDelete
Trying to remember, but wasn't there another positive review of this book recently on Weekend Cooking? Must find a copy. Sounds tempting.ReplyDelete
Yum! It sounds like it was worth the three hours!ReplyDelete
Short ribs are one of my favorite things. I love the Asian versions, like this one, but also the one my father used to make with a cream gravy and what we called "pinchy noodles" (basically spaetzle). There's just hardly anything better and oh so comforting.ReplyDelete
