Do not boil. When the sticky rice is tender, turn it out into a bowl and pour 1 cup of the hot coconut milk over; reserve the rest. Meanwhile, peel the mangoes.

Tacos Al Pastor I consider al pastor tacos one of my favorite tacos; always there to satisfy at 2 am off a truck and is blow-your-mind-good freshly sliced off the trompo, a vertical rotisserie al pastor is traditionally cooked on. And then there's the one I had in Guanajuato that shattered my taco world. The geniuses there melted a thin slice of stringy cheese on the small corn tortilla before piling the shaved meat on top. Holy. Pork. Al pastor means “shepherd style” in Spanish and refers to the way the meat is cooked. This method of roasting meat is unique to al pastor in Mexico but common in the Middle East where it was brought to central Mexico by early Lebanese immigrants. While al pastor is typically something that is enjoyed on the streets of Mexico, this is totally doable at home. Serves about 10 or a whole lot of tacos Toppings: - 2 white onions, finely diced - 1 bundle of cilantro, finely minced - sliced radishes - lime wedges - fresh pineapple slices - tomatillo salsa zp8497586rq

Tibetan Flatbread, the Perfect Soup Dunking Bread I am a dunker. How about you? When it comes to eating soup, I have to have something to dunk into the liquid to eat along with it. I love a spongy bread or biscuit that will soak up some of the soup liquid without falling apart. I recently saw an episode of Jacques Pépin's show, More Fast Food My Way, where he made a quick Tibetan Flatbread on the stove in a frying pan. It looked so good that I knew I was going to have to try it. and then you put it in a cold frying pan with some olive oil already in it, spread out the dough, and then add a few tablespoons of water around the edges to help the bread steam, and then stick a lid on the pan and let it cook for about 10 minutes over medium-high heat. Then you flip the bread over and cook the other side for about 5 minutes. When it's done, pull it out and let it cool on a plate for a few minutes. Then cut it into wedges and serve! The texture of this bread is fabulous–springy, soft, and slightly chewy. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. * It's not too late!
