Our friend Henry made dinner for us again! You recall he made that amazing Chicken Ballottine for us earlier this year. This time he made beef Nang Bao Rou, a Chinese dish from the Xinjiang province.
It’s a very healthy and hearty stew just right for this time of year. Traditionally it is served over flat bread like Naan or Ciabatta.
Nang Bao Rou is not too difficult to make, most of the work is preparing the veggies.
Henry also used beef that was sliced very thin.
Bacon and onions in the pan. Who doesn’t love that aroma?
Here’s Henry’s “secret” ingredient for added flavor, Korean Sunchang sauce paste. It’s made with red peppers and has a bit of heat.
All the different veggies make the dish quite colorful.
And because the beef was sliced so thin, it cooks very quickly. Here’s Henry’s delicious recipe. Enjoy!
It was a wonderful evening with a truly beautiful musical legend who took us on a personal journey with her songs and stories. Not just her near perfect soprano voice, but her classical piano and 12 string guitar proficiency make her an awe inspiring musician.
Being mostly an interpreter of songs, Judy Collins has written some very obscure and hauntingly memorable songs herself. Here she is at a concert last year at The Metropolitan Museum Of Art, singing the 1st song she ever wrote with another one of my favorite singer songwriters, Shawn Colvin who joins her in a duet version of “Since You’ve Asked”.
“Take the lilies and the lace
From the days of childhood,
All the willow winding paths
Leading up and outward,
This is what I give,
This is what I ask you for
We were privileged to be able to meet her after the concert and tell how much her music has meant to us. At 75, she’s an inspiration.
I was fortunate to have her sign the DVD of her most recent concert in Ireland. The concert was a PBS broadcast aired just this past Spring on March 5th. Her autograph ended in a heart.
