Sometimes, I overestimate my memory. I find notes written, only half the information is missing. I expected I would remember.
I found one such note in the notes on my phone. This was the note:
“ground beef, pistachios, caramelized onions and parsley formed into a kebab and grilled. Bonus with”
I pasted those words into Google, to see what I might have been thinking. First, I found that it is a Greek dish, Kafta. But the recipes were not correct. (Afterwards, I found the exact string of words in this blog.)
Curious, and remembering there was part of a package of ground beef lingering in the fridge, I decided. “Why not?”
There were no quantities listed, so I cut that in half. A small onion, a handful of pistachios, shakes of the dried parsley bottle. I cooked a meatball, tasted, added more parsley, salt and pepper.
I covered the bowl with plastic wrap and put it back in the fridge.
Last night I cooked it up. 3 burgers were made, Papa Bear Size, Mama Bear Size and Baby Bear Size. I served Papa Bear Sized to SpecialK, and Baby Bear sized yo myself.
I asked SpecialK what he thought of this dish. Should I keep the recipe? He said, “Sure”. But the real answer came when I asked him if he would like the leftovers for lunch. “No”. Ok, dear, I won’t be making these Turkish Meat Sticks again.
What new recipe have you tried lately?
