My husband and I just returned from a two week long road trip up the coast of California and we ate a lot of great food. My favorite meals were the ones cooked by my family in their kitchens. I have been trying to recreate some of those dishes:
Sarah's Lamb Kabobs
My cousin Sarah will be the first to tell you that this is her go to dinner when she has people over...yes, they are that good.
Mix all ingredients in bowl. Using your hands, pack mixture around kabobs. Place kabobs in a single in a baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
1.5 pounds ground lamb
3 tbsp chopped mint
3 tbsp chopped parley
zest from 1 lemon
2 cloves garlic, minced
The beet tart was Sarah's inspired take on an Ottolenghi recipe. The recipe called for sweet potatoes but she used beets. I still haven't tried it with the potatoes because the beets are SO good!
Uncle Law's Steak. You will never cook yours the same again.
I have made these steaks more than a few times since we have returned from our trip. They are seasoned perfectly, and the meat is so tender it cuts like butter.
Tune in for my post next week for photos of what we did, where we ate, and where we stayed on our California road trip.
