Local Recipes


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I a live in the midwest of the US, and I love to cook. Sometimes it is very hard to find authentic foreign recipes that haven't been effected by our influence on the dish. Since I love to cook, and I know many of you live in an entirely different continent, I was wondering if anyone would like to share some authentic recipes that are local to your town, city, state, or country. Full recipes with ingredients and directions would be appreciated. If your dish sounds appetizing, I'll make it and post pics and what I think about it. This will also help me plan meals for my house.

I won't use a recipe if it includes Seafood (or any weird fermented thing), but I have access to common and uncommon ingredients from around the world. Can be anything, side-dish, main course, dessert, whatever you feel like sharing.

Thanks in advance! :)

Greetings!

Interestingly, I have been working on a web app for my school about certain holidays, allowed and recommended foods during these holidays and of course recipes included :) 

If I don't forget until it's done (expected end of the year), I will post it here for you and everyone else to see. At the moment, I don't have much to tell you, because I am as useless in a kitchen as I am in most other real life skills :P Good luck!

I recommend this, http://www.delo.si/druzba/odprta-kuhinja/torkov-namig-za-kosilo-matevz-in-kisla-repa.html .

Here's the wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matev%C5%BE .

It's a Slovenian dish and IMO tastes super good. However, We prepare it differently in my region of Notranjska (In-land if you will), It's still a side dish, just make sure to add more beans and pork rind when you cook it, it takes a lot better.

This is then added to what is basically Sauerkraut, but more in a soup kind of way. End product should look like this:

If you're not into that then I recommend some beef soup http://okusno.je/recept/domaca-goveja-juha . This is also the one thing you will find on all Slovenian Sunday dinners. Soups are a big thing here :)

Sorry for all the links being in Slovenian, google translate the hell out of it. A few pointers, "sestavine" = ingredients ,  "priprava" = how to make.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slovenian_cuisine Here's the whole list of foodstuffs, some are a bit harder to do or are seriously regionally based.

Dober tek!

I have never thought of this before, great idea. The problem is that I don't have the cultural background to decide what dishes to make.

I will try both of these! I love sausage so the first one should go pretty well with that. Thanks!

What kind of food do you enjoy? I can give you a couple of recipes but depends, there are light ones and some are just crazy mad. lol

 

I enjoy most food except seafood. I don't mind spending hours/lots of money on a meal.

Swedish Local recipes, I suppose "Raggmunk med fläsk och lingonsylt" is a good one (Potato pancake with pork and lingonberry jam)

 

* 800g of potato (1.76 lb)

* 1 egg

* 1,5dl flour (0,33 lb)

* 3 dl milk (0,66 lb)

* 2 teaspoons salt

* 50g butter (0,11 lb)

 

For serving

* 500g bacon (1.1 lb)

* lingonberry jam

 

Raggmunk med fläsk och lingonsylt                   (it should look something like this when done)

Instructions:

1. Make a batter of eggs, flour and milk. Peel the potatoes and grate it on a grater directly into the batter so that the batter does not darken. Then salt.

2. Fry small platelets of the mixture into the butter on medium heat so that the potatoes have time to be done.

3. Slice the salted pork and fry in hot pan. Serve with potato pancakes and lingonberry jam.

 

I don't know how easy it is to get a hold on lingonberry jam. Never met anyone from outside the scandinavian countries that knows what it is.

(I couldn't find a recipe that wasn't in swedish with the correct ingredients so I translated)

That looks delicious, I just need to get to the grocery store to try all of these. Thank you!

I suspect that having the measurements in dl and g will be an issue; everything is measured in lbs, cups, and tablespoons where I live :P

Well, my favourite meal is a delicous suop, while keeping its production pretty simple:

 

YumYum aka #studentslife

 

Ingredients:

yum_yu10.jpg

 

Preparation:

1. Open Package.

2. Put noodles into a bowl.

3. Open the other smaller packages, containing vegetables and spices.

4. Add them to the noodles.

5. Apply hot water to the noodles.

6. Wait for 5 minuets.

 

Enjoy your meal!

 

Tipp: It isn't important, wether you put the noodles, the vegetables or the spices first in the bowl.

 

Alternation:

Oh good ole' ramen. I have a counter-recipe to your recipe. If you boil the noodles (for the ones without veggies and stuff) and then drain them instead, put a 1/4 stick of butter, 1/4 cup of milk, half of the seasoning, and half a bag of shredded cheese, it turns into a delicious macaroni and cheese. I started doing this every time I have it.

Made this last night. Recipe worked well, was a fast, easy, and tasty meal. It was kind of like breakfast for dinner but I'm fine with that. I think I want to make all of my pancakes with potatoes in them from now on.

Thanks for the recipe!

You're welcome! Is that really Lingonberry jam though or did you go with something else? (If not, I really recommend it. It's really good!)

Walmart sells Lingonberry jam but not in my area, so I used raspberry spread.

Made that recipe last night, it turned out very well. I'm afraid of the other recipe you put in because of the pickled turnips, also not sure if anywhere around me sells pickled turnips.

Looks glorious :D I would recommend putting noodles in there as well next time. Pickled turnips are not too hard to come by IMO, but it's up to you :)
