Meatloaf Dinner Jan 6, 2007 Meat loaf is as synonymous with good old-fashioned American cooking as apple pie. While some may prefer meat loaf made with meat loaf mix, a combination of beef, pork, and veal, there’s something to be said for an all-beef loaf.An all-beef loaf can have terrific meaty flavor and it’s convenient to boot, especially when you can’t find meat loaf mix, or just don’t want to fuss with buying three kinds of meat. However, a meat loaf made with all beef does require some special handling so that it doesn’t taste like a dry, loaf-shaped hamburger. We set out to make a loaf with well-seasoned meat and just enough binder to give the loaf a tender, not tough, texture. In choosing a side dish to partner with our meat loaf, we turned to another old-fashioned dish—skillet-roasted potatoes. Skillet-roasted potatoes are cooked on the stovetop, thus allowing the cook to free up the oven for the main course. We wanted potatoes that are creamy on the inside and crusty on the outside. Some skillet-roasted potatoes can be soggy and greasy—a pitfall we’d need to avoid in developing our recipe.Recipes:Glazed Meat Loaf or All Beef MeatloafSkillet-Roasted PotatoesSkillet-Roasted Potatoes with Garlic and RosemarySkillet-Roasted Potatoes with Lemon and ChivesSpicy Skillet-Roasted Potatoes with Chili and CuminTasting Lab: Ground BeefEquipment Center: The Tong Show—Kitchen TongsScience Desk: How Gelatin Mimics Veal

view more

Streamlined Chicken Skillet Suppers Jan 13, 2007 Dinners prepared entirely in one skillet are perfect for weeknight cooking. Less cleanup is one obvious benefit. A skillet also gives the cook a bit more control over cooking multiple elements. In the oven, dishes such as chicken and rice—ingredients with disparate cooking times—can cook unevenly, so that when the dish comes out of the oven, you end up with mixed results, such as tender rice and dry chicken—or conversely, crunchy rice and moist chicken. A skillet gives you the freedom to move items in and out of the skillet accordingly so that everything comes out perfectly cooked. We have also discovered that a skillet comes in handy in some pasta dishes. Take the restaurant favorite, chicken, broccoli, and ziti. Typically, the pasta is boiled in one pot and then one or sometimes two more pans are required to cook the chicken, broccoli, and sauce. We condensed all the elements into a skillet—even the pasta—which cooks right in the sauce, soaking up maximum flavor for an exemplary version of this favorite dish.Recipes:Skillet Chicken and Rice with Peas and ScallionsSkillet Chicken with Broccoli, Ziti, and Asiago CheeseTasting Lab: White Wines for CookingEquipment Center: Inexpensive Knife Sets

Best Beef Stew Jan 20, 2007 Join us as we uncover the secrets behind a favorite beef stew and streamline a hearty side dish.A basic beef stew can be altered in dozens of ways, usually by adding more ingredients to the pot. But can you go the other way and strip beef stew down to its bare bones (or, to be more precise, to its beef)? If you trade the carrots and potatoes for a mess of onions and add a good dose of beer (instead of red wine) as part of the braising liquid, you’ve created a simple Belgian beef stew called carbonnade à la flamande. Beef, beer, and onions have a natural affinity—think burger, onion rings, and a beer. In a carbonnade, the heartiness of beef melds with the soft sweetness of sliced onions in a lightly thickened broth that is rich, deep, and satisfying, with the malty flavor of beer. We aimed to create the very best version of this cold-weather favorite. Sweet acorn squash makes a worthy partner alongside carbonnade or with many other dishes during the cold weather season, but too often this squash turns out dry and stringy. We wanted to devise a method that ensured sweet, tender squash, without a lot of hassle.Recipes:Carbonnade a la Flamande—Belgian Beef, Beer, and Onion StewAcorn Squash with Brown SugarAcorn Squash with Rosemary-Dried Fig CompoteTasting Lab: Beer for CarbonnadeEquipment Center: Paring Knives—UpdatedScience Desk: Are All Microwaves Created Equal?

S07 E04

Sunday Roast Chicken and Stuffing Jan 27, 2007 We wanted a streamlined version of roast chicken with plenty of stuffing to go around—and to solve the problem of cooking the stuffing to a safe temperature without drying out the delicate breast meat of the chicken.The idea of roast chicken and stuffing is very appealing—moist, well-seasoned meat and plenty of flavorful stuffing to satisfy everyone at the table. But in reality, a chicken, even one upwards of 5 pounds (serving 4 to 6 people), doesn’t contain a cavity large enough to accommodate the amount of stuffing you’d need to serve everyone at the table. Sure, you can bake the stuffing separately in a baking dish, but you miss out on all the flavorful juices imparted from the chicken. Our aim, therefore, would be to develop a recipe for roast chicken and stuffing where we could somehow still mimic the flavorful benefits of cooking the stuffing inside the bird. A quick sauté of spinach, especially one with garlic and lemon, goes well alongside roast chicken (in addition to many other dishes). But this simple approach can often go wrong—overcooked spinach, burnt garlic, too much oil—the list goes on. We would focus on avoiding these pitfalls to turn out a tasty side dish you can rely on again and again.Recipes:Stuffed Roast Butterflied ChickenMushroom-Leek Bread Stuffing with HerbsCurrant-Pecan Bread Stuffing with Shallots and HerbsCouscous Stuffing with Fennel, Dried Apricots, and CashewsSauteed Garlic-Lemon SpinachEquipment Center: Kitchen Shears—Update

Faster Family Favorites Feb 10, 2007 With these quick recipes, you’ll be able to get dinner on the table in a reasonable amount of time—and they’ll taste good too.In theory, quick recipes sounds terrific—but we’ve found most streamlined recipes end up sacrificing flavor for speed and convenience. Take chicken pot pie. Most recipes for quick chicken pot pie are a far cry from the classic comfort food. The filling is not much more than leftover chicken stirred into canned cream of chicken soup and a paltry amount of vegetables—sometimes even canned. These versions are far from the comforting dinner that’s always been a family favorite. We aimed to do better. We wanted a really flavorful chicken stew topped with a biscuit crust, and, yes, we wanted it fast. Tamale pie, an already quick dish, has fallen victim to the dump-and-bake approach: combine a can of chili and a can of creamed corn; top with cornbread mix and bake. Tossing cans aside, we set out to make a fresh-tasting, quick tamale pie with a juicy, spicy mixture of meat and vegetables with a quick, homemade cornbread topping.Recipes:Skillet Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuit ToppingSkillet Tamale PieTasting Lab: Bottled Italian Dressing

Lighter Family Favorites Feb 17, 2007 With these lightened recipes, your favorites will be able to appear on the table as often as you crave them.Whether we like to admit it or not, there are some dishes that while tasty, are just too high in fat and calories to be enjoyed on a regular basis. Even a modest portion of these dishes such as macaroni and cheese and chicken Parmesan is prohibitive. But do they need to be? What if we could create lighter versions of these dishes so we could enjoy them more often? In our research we tried dozens of versions of “light” macaroni and cheeses, and again and again we were met with disappointing dishes. Gluey sauces full of tasteless, rubbery nonfat cheeses were the norm. Versions made with ricotta and cottage cheese also showed up. We wanted a creamy macaroni and cheese with real cheesy flavor. Light recipes for chicken Parmesan often fall short too. Again and again we were met with soggy crusts and that culprit, nonfat cheese. We wanted a really crisp crust for our chicken and we wanted great flavor.Recipes:Everyday Lighter Macaroni and CheeseEveryday Lighter Macaroni and Cheese with Ham and PeasLighter Chicken Parmesan with Simple Tomato SauceTasting Lab:Alternative PastasWhole Wheat PastaEquipment Center: Indoor Grills
