A hint of lemon makes all the difference in this quick pizza. At several restaurants lately, my pizza was served with a topping of lettuce added after the pizza was cooked. It gave a fresh approach and flavor to the pizza. Arugula tops this pizza, and its peppery flavor adds another dimension.
It’s a meal in a bowl, and it’s not breakfast. It’s the latest trend and offered at many restaurants. This dinner in a bowl is easy, healthy and quick to make. This one features avocado, black beans, corn, tomato and brown rice.
This dinner is a tasty mixture of Pacific rim flavors. Lemon grass is the secret to the flavors in Hot and Spicy Beef. With it’s lemon-lime tang, it is one of the most important spices used in Thai cooking. It looks a little like a scallion with long, thin, green-gray leaves and a lighter bulb at the tip. Grated lemon rind can be used instead.
A steak cut from the leg of lamb is tender and juicy and cooks in minutes. The spiced coating makes this dish special with little effort, yet it’s exciting enough for Easter weekend. If the lamb steak is not in the meat case, ask for two steaks about 1/2 to 3/4-inches thick, cut from the leg. Cut right through the leg, it’s a round steak with a small bone in the center.
