Karl’s Tapas: Albóndigas de Cordero (Lamb Meatballs)

I am making a Spanish tapas dinner for this Sunday. I had left over lamb mixture from my stuffed pepper tapas. Meatballs are another form of tapas, and an easy solution to the problem of what to do with my excess. In Spain, they would usually be served with some kind of sauce on the side.

Karl’s Tapas: Chorizo Relleno de Pepino (Chorizo Stuffed Cucumber)

Adapted from a Orce Serrano Hams recipe

I am making a Spanish tapas dinner for this Sunday. This is a tasty and easy tapas. Stuff the sausage into the cucumber and slice it into rings just before serving.

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.
