New York Hot Dog easy to make step-by-step recipe

New York Hot Dog

by Olexiy Bayev

You can’t even imagine how many hot dog variations are there. Of course, the basis is always the same – roll and sausage, but I’ve lost count on the variations of fillings.

Today I’d like to talk about classic New York hot dog, where we have a special onion sauce except a roll and sausage. It is sweet and juicy and it cooks almost as onion confiture, but with some exceptions.

It’s customary to add sauerkraut to the hot dog beside the onion sauce. This time I haven’t use it, but that shouldn’t stop you. Try to cook both with it and without and then decide which one you liked better.

What You Need to Cook New York Hot Dog

INGREDIENTS:

Onion sauce:

  • 120 ml of water
  • 1 tsp of corn starch
  • 1 tbsp of tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp of mustard
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • A few drops of Tabasco
  • A pinch of grounded cinnamon
  • 2 large red onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Salt, pepper

A hot dog (4 servings):

  • 4 sausages
  • 4 rolls
  • 4 tbsp of sauerkraut
  • Ketchup, mustard for serving

EQUIPMENT:

  • Nothing, that you wouldn’t have

How to Make New York Hot Dog: Step-by-Step Instructions🔪

STEP 1. SLICE THE ONION AND PREPARE THE REST OF INGREDIENTS FOR THE SAUCE

The sauce that cooks for 1 hour is a bit beyond the understanding of fast food. But, firstly, it totally worth it, and secondly, you can always cook more than you need and use it throughout the week. It can be easily stored in the fridge.

Firstly, prepare the liquid mix for the sauce. In the glass or deep bowl mix 120 ml of water, 1 tsp of corn starch, 1 tbsp of tomato paste (can be replaced with good-quality ketchup), 1 tsp of sweet mustard (or medium hot), 1 tsp of sugar, 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar (if you don’t have one – use apple or any wine), a few drops of Tabasco and a pinch of ground cinnamon.

Finely mix everything to melt the starch and combine the rest of the ingredients.
Slice 2 onions into thin half-rings. Finely chop 2 cloves of garlic.

Warm up the large frying pan on the medium fire, add 1 tbsp of vegetable oil, and lay the onion out into one layer. Add salt on top, it will accelerate the evaporation.

Fry, stirring all the time until the onion is mild and fried on the edges. Then add garlic and fry for another minute, also constantly stirring.

It’s important not to over fry the onion, otherwise, there would be an unpleasant bitterness in the taste.

Don"t over fry the onion for New York hot dog
Add prepared liquid mix, finely mix everything, cover, lower the fire, and leave stewing For 1 hour. Check from time to time if there is some liquid left in the frying pan, or you’re risking to burn everything. If you see that liquid is evaporating too fast – move it to the smaller burner and add some water.

STEP 2. FRY THE SAUSAGES AND MAKE THE HOT DOGS

Using a grill pan or electric grill fry 4 sausages for 1-2 minutes from both sides. If you don’t have a grill, use a regular frying pan. 4 rolls cut in half lengthwise, but don’t slice till the end. Fry them on the same pan/grill according to one of these instructions. By the way, in the USA they usually cut the roll from the top side, not from the side as we do.

Choose any sausages you like. But, mind the composition and do not save on that.

Put the sausage into the roll, spread 1-2 tbsp of onion sauce evenly on top. If you want a real authentic New York hot dog, add for about 1 tbsp of sauerkraut.

Serve with sweet mustard and ketchup, so everybody could add whatever they want.

On my own behalf, I want to add: don’t rush to add sauces, taste at first. There’s enough sourness in the onion sauce (vinegar, tomato paste, mustard), so you can easily overdo with supplements.

Homemade Bread in One Hour easy to make step-by-step recipe

The bread cooking process is not necessarily long and boring. Here is a recipe, following which you’ll have a fresh, flavored bread within minutes. Well, not exactly within minutes but in an hour or so, solid!

Nevertheless, it doesn’t make it any easier. All you need to do is to mix the dough, let it rise in ‘special conditions’ and put to the oven.

What You Need to Cook Homemade Bread in One Hour

INGREDIENTS:

  • 560 g of flour
  • 350 g of water
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 1,5 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of wine vinegar
  • 7 g of extra yeast

EQUIPMENT:

  • Microwave oven

How to Make Homemade Bread in One Hour: Step-by-Step Instructions🔪

Mix 560 g of flour, 7 g of extra yeast, 1 tbsp of sugar, 1,5 tsp of salt in the mixer bowl, or in a regular middle-sized bowl. Mix with a whisk.

Add 250 ml of water and using a spatula, mix the dough. Now add the rest 100 ml of water and 1 tsp of wine vinegar, and make a stretchy dough. It’ll take you about 7-10 minutes.

If you’re using a mixer, just place a spatula nozzle, mix the dry ingredients, then add water and let work for a minute.

Then place a hook-shaped nozzle, add the rest of the water and let work for another 4-5 minutes. When the walls of the bowl are clean and all the dough is on the hook, this means it’s ready.

A plastic bowl, that you can put to the microwave oven, grease with oil, and put there a dough.

Cover the bowl with a wet towel (just soak it under the running water and then squeeze), and with a dry one on top. Put to the microwave oven.

Turn the microwave oven on the maximum capacity for about 40 seconds. Leave the bowl inside for 5-10 minutes. Now turn it on again for 40 seconds. Leave the dough for 25 minutes more.

Meanwhile, warm up the oven to 220 degrees.

If you have an iron baking mold or frying pan – put it to the oven and leave to warm up. If no, don’t get upset, take a regular stainless casserole and do the same, but do it in 10 minutes before baking the bread. Obviously, there should be no plastic parts on it.

After 25 minutes, the dough should extend 2-2,5 times. Take the mold or casserole out of the oven, slightly grease the bottom with oil, and put there a dough.

Make a cross-cut on top. Cover with a lid or foil and put it to the oven. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove the lid or foil and bake for another 10 minutes until golden.

Let the casserole cool down for 10-15 minutes, then take the bread out and cool on the baking grate.

Chinese Fried Cabbage easy to make step-by-step recipe

Continue sharing with you some fast and simple recipes. Today we have a Chinese guest – fried white cabbage with Sichuan and chili pepper.

Fast frying in a wok makes it crusty but gentle inside at the same time. It turns out very juicy, sour-sweet, with citrus flavor because of the Sichuan pepper. Red-hot wok wall leaves frying marks on the cabbage slices and adds a smoky flavor.

This dish can be a perfect snack for 1 or 2 persons or a nice side dish for the main course. But, bear in mind, that it hardly will replace a whole meal. But if you serve with rice or another side dish it’ll be a really fine lunch.

INGREDIENTS:

  • half of small cabbage
  • 1 tsp of Sichuan pepper
  • 1-2 small chili peppers
  • 1 tsp of soy sauce

Zesty Thai Salad with Beef easy to make step-by-step recipe

This salad is a perfect fit if you need to use the beef leftover, but of course, if you’re using a fresh one, it’ll be just as good.
Asian cuisine is always a taste and flavor explosion. They are very good in taste combinations like sweet, bitter, sour but they are balanced at the same time. Not a single taste is more dominant than the others.

Today I’ll share with you one of those recipes. Let’s make a deal, you can regulate the amount of chili pepper in dressing as you want and choose any salad you like. Lettuce, romaine, iceberg – doesn’t matter, choose anyone you like.

Just remember, you need to wash thoroughly the leaves on the head of lettuce and cut off the head itself. Also very important to dry finely the leaves after washing, but we’ll talk about it below.

What You Need to Cook Zesty Thai Salad with Beef

INGREDIENTS:

For salad:

  • 250 g beef leftover, if you’re planning to use raw one, read the recipe how to cook it
  • 100-150 g of iceberg lettuce (or anyone else you like/can afford)
  • 5-6 cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cucumber
  • ¼ of small sweet onion (the red or white one)
  • A bundle of parsley or cilantro (what you like best)
  • A handful of peanuts
  • 2 twigs of fresh mint (just leaves)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt, pepper

For dressing:

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • parsley/cilantro stalks, which you used for salad
  • ¼ – 1 chili pepper, take less if you don’t like spicy or more if do
  • 2 tsp of sugar
  • 2 tbsp of fish sauce
  • 3 tbsp of lime juice
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • Salt, pepper to taste

EQUIPMENT:

  • Blender or mortar (not necessarily)

How to Make Zesty Thai Salad with Beef: Step-by-Step Instructions🔪

STEP 1. PREPARE THE DRESSING

Nothing special, we’ve taken 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped parsley/cilantro stalks, and the right amount of chili pepper (¼ – 1). Put to the blander or mortar.

Put garlic, parsley/cilantro stalks, chili pepper to the blander or mortar for zesty thai salad with beef
If you’re using a blender, add the rest of the ingredients right away and let it work for a minute.

If you’re using mortar, after you added all the ingredients from above, work with a pestle until it turns into a homogeneous mass.

If you have neither blender nor mortar, not a problem. In this case, just chop the ingredients as finely as possible and mix them with liquids and sugar in a glass or small finger bowl.

Mix the ingredients for zesty thai salad with beef
After you shredded add the rest ingredients for dressing: 2 tsp of sugar, 2 tbsp of fish sauce, 3 tbsp of lime juice, 1 tbsp of olive oil, and pepper.

Taste, salt, if needed.

Add sugar, fish sauce, lime juice for zesty thai salad with beef


STEP 2. PREPARE THE LETTUCE AND CUT THE VEGETABLES.

First, lettuce. I used the iceberg (100-150 g).

The first thing you need to do is to wash it. It’s better to do it this way: finely wash the sink, close the drain and take on water. Sort the leaves from the head, soak in the sink, and leave for about 5 minutes. Check them from time to time, and rinse with hands under the water.

Take off the salad, remove the water. Cut off the hard part from the leaves and throw away. The remaining leaves roll and chop into 1-2 cm pieces. Now you need to dry them. I use a salad drier like this, which I’ve bought in IKEA.

Dry the lettuce leaves for zesty thai salad with beef
If you don’t have such a thing- just finely shake the water off the leaves and then dry with a pepper towel.

The leaves should be almost completely dry.

This rule is good for all kinds of salad leaves. The thing is, if there’s some moisture left, the dressing won’t wash over every piece as it should be and the main part of it just drains down.

While the salad is washing, move on to the rest of the vegetables.

Cut half of a cucumber into 0,5 cm slices, ¼ of onion into half rings, and 5-6 cherry tomatoes in half.

Cut the vegetables for zesty thai salad with beef


STEP 3. SLICE/PREPARE THE BEEF, FRY THE PEANUTS.

In case you are using the leftovers as I do, just slice 250 g of beef into less than 1 cm pieces.

Slice 250 g of beef for zesty thai salad with beef
If you’re using the fresh one, I recommend to cook it according to the following instruction:

Heat up the oven up to 180 degrees. Salt and pepper the beef from both sides, warm up the frying pan on the high heat, add 2 tbsp of oil. Put there meat and fry for about 1-2 minutes from both sides until nice golden crust.

Put a frying pan with meat to the oven for 8-10 minutes. When it’s ready, let it rest for 10 minutes. Then you can slice it and add it to a salad.

A handful of peanuts fry for a couple of minutes. If you’re using in-shell peanuts, peel it.

When you take a first glance on the ingredients list, you can be pushed away and your desire to cook may disappear. But don’t worry, the preparation of most of them will take a minute, but instead, you’ll have a large portion that is good for 5 people as an addition to the main course.

It has a very contrast taste: sweet beetroot – bitter-sour grapefruit, sweet caramelized nuts – sour pomegranate grains, blue cheese, and cayenne pepper that adds a bit of hotness and dressing …

The dressing is a topic of another conversation. It fulfills its role for 100%: combines all the ingredients but does not mute the main ingredients but rather enhances them. You’ll get some beetroot-citrus bouquet, very tasty and also healthy.

I’m not very fond of beetroot, but when it’s baked and mixed with other salad ingredients it turns out into something awesome.

Jamie Oliver's Potato Salad with a Bacon easy to make step-by-step recipe

When it’s a new potato season you can’t pass by it, and not to cook something, especially when it’s all over shops and markets. Accidentally, I ran into Jamie Oliver’s video where he cooks a potato salad. I got interested in an ingredient combination and decided to follow him without hesitation.

Anyway, simply put, potato salad is exactly just finely dressed boiled potato. So the main ingredient is potato and the rest is dressing + flavors. But what I’ve got in a result made me think: “How come I’ve never thought of something like that myself?”

Simple and affordable ingredients make unique taste and flavor combinations when mixing. Thanks to the yogurt-based sauce (I replaced it with sour cream in the recipe) salad turns out very rich and gentle.

Small pieces of golden fried bacon add a bit of crunch and salt. And greens, which you can easily replace with your favorite one, decorate a salad and add freshness.

The dressing, by the way, is pretty universal too. If you want it fatter and richer taste use mayonnaise, if you want low-fat – use yogurt or sour cream. You can make mixed dressing as a compromise after all.

This salad can be the main course for 2 or even 3 hungry persons. Also, it can be a perfect complement to a meat or fish dish as technically its a salad and side dish at the same time.

What You Need to Cook Jamie Oliver’s Potato Salad with a Bacon

INGREDIENTS:

  • 800 g of new potatoes
  • 1 lemon
  • 100 g of bacon or smoked breast
  • 1 small bunch of greens to taste (mint, basil, spring onion, dill, parsley)
  • 120 g of sour cream (you can also use yogurt or mayonnaise)
  • Salt, pepper

EQUIPMENT:

  • nothing, that you wouldn’t have

How to Make Jamie Oliver’s Potato Salad with a Bacon: Step-by-Step Instructions🔪

STEP 1. WASH AND BOIL THE POTATO

Wash 800 g of the new potatoes under the running water and clean it from the soil and other dirt using the hard side of dishwashing sponge (of course without cleaning products).

Put the potatoes to the pan, add cold water in the order it covers the potato, add a pinch of salt, and put on the fire.

Put the potatoes on the fire for jamie oliver's potato salad with a bacon
Cook for about 10 minutes from the boiling moment.


STEP 2. PREPARE THE REST OF INGREDIENTS

While the potatoes are boiling let’ do the rest of the ingredients. Cut the bacon (100 g) into long thin 5 mm slices.

Cut the bacon for jamie oliver's potato salad with a bacon
Finely chop 1 small bunch of onion and basil.

You can easily replace greens from this recipe with your favorite one: mint, parsley, dill, chives, and also make any taste combinations you want.

Make a zest from 1 lemon.

Put a small frying pan on the fire, add there 1 tbsp of oil and fry sliced bacon until golden for 3-4 minutes.

Then, carefully put it on the paper towel to absorb the extra fat.

STEP 3. MAKE A SALAD

Check if the potato is ready with a knife if it easily slides to the middle it is ready. Remove the water and let it cool down for a couple of minutes.

Cut the potato as you want, the bigger ones cut in 4 parts, smaller ones in 2-3, and so on. Chopped potato put to the serving plate.

Salt and pepper, add lemon zest and squeeze a juice from half a lemon on top, finely mix everything.

Add 120 g of sour cream (I used 20% one) and chopped greens, mix everything again.

Jamie in his video dresses salad with yogurt and also speaks about mayonnaise alternative. I decided to go a bit different way and used sour cream. You, on the other hand, can choose any one of them.

Place fried bacon on top. Taste a salad and add salt, pepper, lemon juice, dressing to taste if necessary.

Mexican Corn Salad easy to make step-by-step recipe

Mexican Corn Salad

by Olexiy Bayev

What do you know about Mexico? Sombrero and melodramas good, but what about the cuisine? Burrito, fajita, tacos, nachos are popular Mexican dishes and snacks, everybody knows.

I want to share with you a bit less popular recipe and so to say, open a door to the other side of Mexican cuisine.

We’ll cook corn salad from freshly fried corn with mayonnaise dressing with cheese, garlic, greenery, chili pepper, and lime juice.

Thanks to mayonnaise and cheese it turns out very gentle but peppery, garlic, and chili tingle receptors and enhances the taste. Dressing spreads on every juicy and sweet corn grain thanks to its creamy texture, therefore, adds all the above features. Nevertheless, you can’t call it too fat even because of the mayonnaise base.

It’s light and fresh, that’s all because of the rich amount of greens and lime juice, all you need on a hot summer day.

Salad is shared with plates almost right away, that’s why cook in plenty.

What You Need to Cook Mexican Corn Salad

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 heads of corn
  • 2 tbsp of mayonnaise
  • 60 g of feta cheese
  • A bunch of spring onion
  • A bunch of parsley
  • 1 chili pepper (if you can find Jalapeno – use this one)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • ½ of lime
  • Salt, pepper, vegetable oil

EQUIPMENT:

  • Nothing, that you wouldn’t have

STEP 2. PREPARE THE CORN

As we need only corn grains, the first thing you need to do is to separate them. I’ll tell you how to do that.

Firstly, peel 4 heads of corn and remove the ‘hair’, cut off the bottom part to make it more stable in the vertical position (not necessarily).

Put the gourd vertically and using the knife, cut off the grains from the top down.

Done? Turn the gourd and continue until there are no grains left. Do the same with the rest 3 gourds.

Carefully add there grains and spread evenly on the surface.
