Karl’s New England Boiled Dinner (a.k.a. Corned Beef and Cabbage)

Chris requested New England Boiled Dinner for his birthday. According to Wikipedia: This is a “traditional New England meal, consisting of corned beef, or a smoked “picnic ham” shoulder, with cabbage and added vegetable items, often including potatorutabaga, parsnipcarrotwhite turnip and onion.” This is one of the original American “one pot meals.”

Karl’s Salt Pickled Cabbage with Japanese Chilies, Kyabetsu Shio-zuke Tsukemono

Japan has many Tsukemono, literally “pickled things.” When my father came back from Japan in the fifties, he introduced my family to Japanese cuisine. One dish that he learned to make was salt pickled cabbage (kyabetsu shio-zuke; キャベツ塩-漬け ).

Karl’s Corned Beef and Cabbage

I have never been overly fond of corned beef and cabbage, but like most part Irish-Americans I have usually made it on St. Patrick’s Day.  Part of the reason for this dislike was because, like most Americans, I would go to Safeway and buy the plastic package of bright red meat. This sour meat would be tossed in the pot with potatoes, carrots and cabbage to be boiled to death.

Karl’s Colorful Asian Coleslaw

Normally, with ham, I would want to serve North Carolina coleslaw, but Jan is not overly fond of this. She finds the harsh Western vinegar too sour. She prefers the more gently sweet and sour flavors of Asian coleslaw made with rice wine vinegar.

Karl’s Carolina Coleslaw

I am making orange glazed salmon and mashed yams tonight. While Jan is on her soft food diet this dish will be too hard for her to eat, however, Eilene wants something besides baby food for dinner.

Karl’s Colorful Coleslaw

I have been doing a lot of Christmas cooking lately, so I have had very little time to blog about cooking. Earlier this week we had sausages and latkes for dinner. Coleslaw goes well with this meal, but I did not have enough of any one cabbage to make it.

Karl’s Rotkohl

I had planned on making this German feast last year, but the meal fell apart. I think Miriam got sent off to Peru for work (just like she is today). Chris is still coming over, so I am going to go ahead and make it this time.

Karl’s Jamaican Chicken Salad

I made Jamaican Jerk Chicken on Sunday and I have half a breast leftover. Checking out the Jamaican cook book, that Jan brought me back from England, I saw that it had a recipe for Caribbean coleslaw. If I put the chicken together with the coleslaw I could come up with the Jamaican equivalent of a Chinese Chicken salad. Of course, I view a cookbook recipe as a source of ideas and insparation, not a list of ingredients, so my salad is only a nod at the original recipe.

Karl’s Coleslaw

This is a weekday meal, so I usually do not go to all the effort that I put into my Sunday feasts. However, that does not mean that it should be bad for your or not taste good. “Quick” does not necessarily mean “bad.”

For the most part I try to make may own dressing for salads. However, I have not been able to replicate the flavor of Hidden Vally Ranch Coleslaw dressing. It simply tastes “right.”
