I am making a Chinese roast pork for Sunday. A vegetable stir-fry is a necessary compliment to a meat heavy dish. Going to Lion Market, I finally decided on baby bok choi and to add variety chive stem.

I am barbecuing Argentinean beef and I wanted a salad to go with it. While some Argentinean salads are more Mediterranean influenced—filled with eggs, potatoes, or fruit—the salad commonly served with asado—barbecue—is almost Japanese in its simplicity. A few high quality ingredients, simply dressed. The flavors of the ingredients should stand proudly on their own.
This week I am making Santa Maria tri-tip, which calls for Santa Maria-style beans. While many sites call for serving coleslaw with this meal, I could not find anything called “Santa Maria-style coleslaw.” Having grownup just a few miles away, in Santa Barbara, I decided to fill this obvious need.

I wanted a vegetable dish for my birthday dinner to go with my Mughal lamb and rice dishes. My family really likes saag paneer, which has become my go-to dish for Indian meals. The only ingredient in modern Indian cuisine that would have been uncommon 500 years ago is tomatoes.
I was looking for a vegetable side dish to go with my meatloaf. A few weeks ago, I discovered that letting the root vegetables marinate in a marmalade base worked really well as a salad dressing. This is what I settled on for tonight’s salad.
Since I was using alcohol in my main dish—port—I thought I should keep it up and add some brandy to my vegetables. Mushrooms and green beans are very popular at our house. They also go very well with barbecued beef.
