Karl’s Patatas Bravas

I am making Spanish tri-tip for Miriam’s birthday dinner. Spanish flavored meat calls for Spanish patatas bravas—roasted potatoes with a spicy tomato sauce. As served in Spain as a tapas, small chunks of potato are deep fried and the tomato sauce is poured over them. More modern—and fat conscious—recipes call for roasting the potatoes and then roasting them a second time after tossing them with the spicy sauce—producing a dryer, tomato-crusted tapas.

Karl’s Beef Brisket with Spanish Flavors

The kids are still on their keto/Atkins low-carb diet. These diets are vegetable/protein forward. I decided that I wanted to make a brisket. In looking at my blog I found that while I had made corn beef brisket, I have never done a simple brisket recipe.

Karl’s Spanish Style Oxtails

I have been craving oxtails recently. I do not make them very often, because of Jan’s dietary restrictions and because, for the same reason, they are not exactly a health food—they are very fatty. One way to reduce the fat is to make them the day before, skim off the congealed lard, and reheat them the next day.
