Kohlrabi with White Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
I saw kohlrabi in the store today for the first time in years, and looked up the recipe here as a memory enhancer. My German Nana used to make it this way with one addition. She always boiled the green leaves in a separate pot until soft; drained and then chopped them; and mixed them into the cooked, sliced bulbs and sauce. It added an extra dimension to the flavor. If you have too many bulbs for the number of people, you can freeze them (raw or cooked without the sauce) in a freezer bag for another time.

Grilled Lamb Chops with Pomegranate-Port Reduction

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
I made this recipe for company tonight for the first time; changing it up a bit to a roast boneless leg of lamb. It came out wonderfully, to raves (even from my very picky hubby). Both the marinade and the sauce were very easy to make. I poked some holes in the meat, and then marinated it in the fridge for about 6 hours; and then roasted it in a 350 deg. oven for about 2 hours for medium rare meat. There was NOTHING left on the platter. The only thing that I would change would be to add just a little bit of thickening agen to the sauce next time; as it is a bit thin, even after simmering for almost an hour. I will also try this with a pork roast in the future; and perhaps on chicken. It would be great on either one I think.

Flank Steak with a Port Wine Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
I'm not usually one for using marinades; but this one sounded interesting, so I tried it tonight. It was amazing! I didn't have any flank steak on hand, so I substituted skirt steaks, which are usually a fairly chewy cut. After marinating for just 2 hours you could practically cut them with a fork. I served them to company, and everyone raved. The blend of flavors was excellent, with just a hint of sweet, and a little tang of lemon to offset it. One word of caution: this makes ALOT of marinade. I served four, and could have cut the recipe in half. Definitely a keeper!
