Closing out the menu for my dinner with friends, dessert! Wanting something very easy (sorbet) but also with a homemade touch, I decided to try one of recipes from the InStyle magazine party guide page I keep talking about, Ginger Pecans.
The third easy dish I made for my dinner with friends was Nigella Lawson’s Thai Crumbled Beef in Lettuce Wraps. I first came across this dish when I bought Nigella’s Forever Summer cookbook in 2003. I have made many wonderful dishes from that cookbook, and this one remains one of my favorites.
Continuing on to the next dish that I served for my friends at my easy dinner party, the Beef-Scallion Skewers. As I mentioned in the original Tuna Tartare Chips post, while browsing InStyle magazine back in 2006, I came across a party guide section that included wonderful and easy recipes that I have made multiple times and are always a hit. The Beef-Scallion Skewers are part of those recipes and like the tuna tatare chips, they are also very easy to make and super flavorful.
On the menu:
- Tuna Tartare Chips
- Beef-Scallion Skewers
- Thai Crumbled Beef in Lettuce Wraps
- Jasmine Rice (A Taste of Thai Jasmine Rice, from the box)
- Sorbet from The Frieze with ginger pecans on the side (recipe to come)
While browsing InStyle magazine many years ago (February 2006 issue), I came across a party guide section that included some recipes for hors d’oeuvres that were not only super simple to make, but extremely delicious, easy to serve (no mess), and very flavorful. I’ll post the other recipes in the future, but I wanted to start off with my favorite, the Tuna Tartare Chips!
