More heat please...
I made a recipe similar to tonight's dinner not too long ago - but that was more of a stir-fry with the same name. This one ends up more sauce and is served on top of a blend of rices that I frequently use. It called for 6 dried red chilies, but next time I think I would add a couple more as we like things on the spicy side. The orange flavor from the peel and grand marnier do come through more than the other dish.
Spicy Orange Beef(CL '04) Tuesday is my "bake something to bring into Jeff's office" day as I've said before so I thought I would use this time to test out some recipes for the upcoming holidays. I found this on Epicurious, but believe it's from Rose Levy Beranbaum. These have a very intense peanut butter flavor - half are filled with a dark chocolate/milk chocolate mixture that I hand piped in. The other half are filled with a smooth jam. The cookies have a classic sandy peanut butter cookie texture, but still remain very light. The chocolate/PB ones do remind me of bitting into a reeses! I had a quite a bit of chocolate leftover so I thought I would pipe out the remaining into stars and reserve them for future cookies (who am I kidding? for future eating!)
