Reverse Sear Steak and Lobster Risotto · i am a food blog i am a food blog

The first time I ever made risotto, it was a disaster. It was straight up practically inedible. So much so that I’m pretty much convinced that Mike doesn’t like risotto now because of my one and only horrifying experience. Still, I had a vision of a creamy lobster risotto with perfectly cooked slices of steak…


The Easiest Ever Instant Pot Osso Buco Recipe · i am a food blog i am a food blog

Osso Buco is one of those kind of fancy things that everyone knows about but hardly ever order, because how often do you make it past the pasta course in a good Italian restaurant? Traditionally osso buco is veal shank braised for a really long time in a white wine bone marrow infused sauce, but…


6 Ingredient Bourbon Braised Black Bean Pork Belly · i am a food blog i am a food blog

Black bean chicken, pork, or beef is a Chinese takeout (and eat-in) classic. It comes together pretty fast but slicing the meat to the thinness you need to properly stir fry is a pain. Here we switch up the classic stir fry for a more chill-friendly slow but not-too-slow braise. You can have dinner on…


Sweet and Sour Pork Recipe · i am a food blog i am a food blog

If you asked me what my all time go to order for Chinese take away is, it would be sweet and sour pork. No, actually that’s a lie. My all time favorite is honey garlic pork. But this isn’t a post about honey garlic pork, it’s about sweet and sour pork, which happens to be…


Easy Weeknight Coconut Curry Braised Chicken Legs Recipe · i am a food blog i am a food blog

Easy, braise-y, beautiful. I’m a sucker for punny plays on words and easy weeknight recipes, so when I saw a Bon Appetit article claiming “These Braisey Chicken Legs in Coconut Milk Are Almost Too Easy to Make,” I was sold. Of course it helped that the photo was gorgeous: deeply burnished chicken legs, golden brown…


Easy Roast Chicken with Eggplant and Tomatoes · i am a food blog i am a food blog

Like everyone else on the planet, I’ve been trying to eat healthier this month. Well, wait, that’s kind of a lie. I’ve only really started trying to eat healthier since I made this chicken two days ago. See, I have really, really poor eating habits. I LOVE carbs and processed food and basically all the…


A Pho-Forward Take on Pastrami · i am a food blog i am a food blog

DISCLAIMER: Technically this isn’t really pastrami because pastrami is smoked. It’s actually a pho-spiced corned beef but that just didn’t sound as good >_< Pastrami this isn’t, but what it is happens to be freaking good! I’ve been meaning to try out Mike’s corned beef recipe for forever and when I saw a small brisket on…

Low temp roasting is the lowest stress and best way to make roast beef · i am a food blog i am a food blog

For our big traditional holiday feast each year, Steph and I usually go HAM (literally), but this year we’re spending Christmas a little differently, so I decided to look around on the internet for a smaller and easier alternative. One thing in particular stood out to me: Heston Blumenthal’s slow roasted rib of beef with…


Authentic Instant Pot Chicken Pho Recipe · i am a food blog i am a food blog

It’s the most coziest time of the year which mean it’s time for soup. Noodle soup, of course! I love all noodle soups, but pho has got to be one of the most satisfying. We usually make beef pho (recipes here, here, and here) but sometimes chicken noodle soup is the answer because when isn’t…
