Charcuterie board is one of the most simple fancy dish you'll ever have to put together since most of the cooking is already done. It's a go-to snack at parties and a boogie appetizer at high-end restaurants. The focus is primarily on the ingredients and the serving utensils, while composition is key to elevating the spread to an almost art-like canvas. Many have tasted a number of variations of this popular platter and probably put together the ingredients a couple of times. For those who are new to the charcuterie world, perhaps this is the time to create your very first board. This article will walk you through on how to create a simple but chic charcuterie board that will surely impress you and your guests!
The best kind of snacks are usually the salty ones and this subtle marbling of short rib is the perfect vehicle to create a taste-bud bedazzling beef jerky that will keep you coming for more. Inspired by Ninja Air Fryer original beef jerky recipe, this reduced sodium version (let's be cognizant of our blood pressure here) is effortless in execution. The marinade should thoroughly coat each thinly slice of beef and impart a well balanced flavor profile.
While Izakaya is the moment of indulgence (usually accompanied by panting busting food and generous amount of drinks), there are some menu that could considered to be on a healthier and yet still be flavorful.
One of such dish is the Japanese style Rapini Salad. Although the traditional version called for flowering mustard leaves, in the USA that could be hard to come by. A good substitute for this is found in a form of Rapini Broccoli, which has more leaves than flower when compare to broccoli.
This refreshing dish offers a lighter alternative to the usually heavy and oily food typically serve in izakaya restaurant. An who said Izakaya food can’t be healthy, may be?
It goes without saying that a Japanese meal is not complete without a soy-related component. Soy sauce, tofu, and miso paste, all derivatives of soy bean processed ingredients are known to be a healthy source of protein and seasoning (minus the sodium added).
