One-Pan Dinners Are Weeknight Winners

Need a checklist for a great weeknight meal? Easy to prepare, tastes amazing, and cleans up with minimal effort. Enter the sheet pan. Put a versatile protein and veggies on a pan, bake, and serve. These straightforward and flavor-rich dinners are growing in popularity, and it’s no wonder. Don’t believe us? Just search sheet pan suppers on Pinterest. The goal is to get all the food on the pan to be done at the same time, which could be a little tricky when mixing meat and veggies. But by using the countertop oven convection feature you can cook at a… Read more

Lamb meatballs | Wolf Gourmet

Meatballs for Dinner

One of our most popular posts on the blog has been for Sarah’s Sunday meatballs. So, we knew we had to come up with another meatball recipe. We tossed around some ideas and decided on these savory lamb meatballs. They are seasoned with the bright flavor of lemon zest, a generous amount of garlic, and can be served in a pita (our favorite) or atop rice, in a big romaine salad with feta and tomatoes, or alongside some roasted red potatoes. There’s really no wrong way to serve these, as long as you have plenty of tzatziki. The popular Greek… Read more

Classic Comfort Food: Pot Roast

Summer salads and grilled vegetables have had their moment to shine. It’s time for slow-cooked, hearty comfort food to re-emerge. Pot roast is one of the most frequently searched recipes – it’s been a mainstay of family meals for centuries. A recipe with a long history, it originally was a general term for browned meat cooked with vegetables in a covered vessel. Pot roast began appearing in cookbooks in the late 1800s, but the process of slow cooking in liquid, known as braising, is centuries older. Most cultures have their own special version. Mexican carne guisada, Italian stracotto di manzo,… Read more

Extend your summer nights with soup

As the lazy days of summer begin to wind down, we want to maximize our time spent enjoying it. Spending less time in the kitchen means more time for outdoor pursuits, or perhaps relaxing on the patio with a glass of wine watching the sun dip below the horizon. However you spend your summer evenings, a quick meal can get you where you want to be in no time. Sure, you could get takeout on the way home. But what if you could make something in the time it takes to stop at the local deli? Our culinary team came… Read more

Napa Cabbage Salad | Wolf Gourmet

The salad inspired by a sandwich

Everyone has a favorite sandwich, from the crisp, salty Reuben to the classic, gooey grilled cheese, and kid-friendly PB&J. We have found from taking the bread out of the picture (thanks Paleo and gluten-free friends) there are certain components of sandwiches that can stand on their own as a side dish or meal. Taking our favorite part of a sandwich and turning it into a summer salad was a no-brainer. This fresh and vibrant cabbage salad was inspired by the Vietnamese banh mi sandwich, which always includes crunchy, tangy vegetables, some heat from a chile, and the pop of fresh… Read more

watermelon soba | Wolf Gourmet

Zaru Soba with Chilled Watermelon from Betty Liu

During these hot and humid days, I want nothing more than something chilled, whether it be a quick tossed salad or more likely, cold soba noodles. Traditionally, soba noodles are served cold with an umami-packed dipping sauce, and they are perfect for summery days. The dish is simple, refreshing, and my choice meal during the summer. The dipping sauce can be a mentsuyu sauce, made from seaweed and bonito, and it works because of its intense umami flavor. Chilled it has so much flavor that soba noodles need simply be dipped and slurped up. I decided to make another dipping… Read more

fish taco Wolf Gourmet

Cozumel Courtyard Fish Tacos

Vacation memories frequently include meals enjoyed in a beautiful setting. There’s a place in Cozumel with the most amazing courtyard of lush, tropical plants (and live music on Tuesdays). You perhaps know the one. Everyone seems to order fish tacos and margaritas. There’s definitely some magic happening in the kitchen, the tacos are so good! After coming back tanned, rested, and yearning for a return trip, we tried to create the recipe here in the kitchen. We analyzed what exactly made these tacos so amazing. We obviously can’t recreate the setting but maybe by having a couple tacos and a… Read more

Wof Gourmet Avocado Toast

Still Trending: Avocado Toast

Yes, it’s still a thing and we are happy to stay on the bandwagon. There’s always a bowl of avocados at various stages of ripeness and some hearty, sliced bread in the freezer to satisfy our cravings. A quick and delicious snack anytime, it’s easy to prepare at home or work and packs a satisfying, nutritious punch. We simply can’t get enough. Crisp, multi-grain toast is a blank slate for many types of toppings. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the myriad of choices, but experimenting with different flavors and textures is the best part. One of our favorites is… Read more

Flank Steak Wolf Gourmet

Sear Pleasure: Flank Steak with a Sweet Salsa

Known for its intense beefy flavor and quick cooking time, flank steak is a summer favorite. It absorbs marinade like a sponge, which is great because the combination of acid and spices both flavors and tenderizes the meat. Our recipe takes an Asian twist with a marinade featuring soy sauce, fish sauce, and fresh ginger. You might have a bottle of fish sauce lurking in the back of your kitchen cabinet. It’s right next to the pomegranate molasses and rose water if your pantry looks anything like mine. If you don’t have a bottle of fish sauce, be sure to… Read more
