Karl’s Moroccan Chicken Bierocks

I love stuffed breads, whether you call them a samsa, a pasty, a samosa, or a bierock. While making them can be a lot of work—you are first making some kind of stew, letting it cool, making the dough, and then filling the dough with the stew, before baking them all together—the payoff is well worth the added labor. Packet breads are a convenient, grab-and-go meal for lunches and I usually get two, or even three, meals for the three people out of one recipe.

Karl’s Moroccan Chicken Wings

It is Memorial Day and barbecue is the traditional way of celebrating. Son-in-law, Chris, is avoiding sugary foods, so many a barbecue sauce was out. I decided that a spice rub would be the way to go.

Karl’s Moroccan Ras el Hanout Barbecued Lamb

It’s Father’s Day and I get to make what I like. This means barbecued lamb. Like for my birthday, I decided I would go Moroccan.

Karl’s Zucchini Ras el Hanout

I made a tajine for my Father’s Day dinner to go with my Moroccan lamb. I had a zucchini on my counter that I wanted to use before it spoiled, but I thought that a soft squash like this would not stand up to the long cooking time of a tajine.  I decided it would be much better barbecued separately. Since I had already blended Ras el Hanout for the lamb it seemed an obvious spicing.

Karl’s Moroccan Spice Mix II (another Ras el Hanout)

I have made the Moroccan spice blend Ras el Hanout before. For this Father’s Day, I wanted a Moroccan blend that was just a little bit simpler than 29 ingredients. Looking at my old recipe, I cut out the more obscure spices and adjusted the quantities. To be called a Ras el Hanout the blend should have at least these eleven spices: allspice, black pepper, cardamom, cayenne pepper, cloves, coriander seeds, ginger, mace, nutmeg, turmeric, and white pepper. The quantities of each spice vary widely between blends I have found.

Karl’s Moroccan Orange and Spinach Salad with Ras el Hanout Shrimp

It is my birthday and I thought I would get creative and please myself. I was looking on-line for Moroccan dishes to add to my feast. I was scanning more for idea, rather than recipes. This combination for the salad just sort of clicked into place as I was reading.

Karl’s Keto Moroccan Artichoke Tajine (Tagine)

This Sunday I am making a Moroccan barbecued tri-tip. Miriam requested a stone fruit and corn salad to go with it. Son-in-law Chris is still on his ketogenic diet, so large amounts of both corn and fruit are forbidden to him. I don’t want him to starve or to live only on meat, so I had to think of a third dish that would fit into his diet.

Karl’s Moroccan Barbecued Corn and Peach Salad

I am doing Morocco this week and Miriam said she had seen a recipe for Moroccan corn and stone fruit salad. She really liked my last corn salad and wanted something similar. I was not able to find the recipe she had read, so I did what seemed right to me.

Karl’s Lamb Sliders

The Mercury News had a recipe for turkey sliders this week. Sliders are mini-burgers about two to three inches across. Jan decided she wanted some for dinner. I had some left over lamb from Sunday’s dinner, so I suggested using it for the sliders. While it was not quite what she wanted, she agreed, if I would make fresh buns.
