The Lechasseurs' Recipes

Only the "keepers"


Barbecue Rub and Sauce

Use it on ribs, pork shoulders, chickens-anything you want to taste like American barbecue. Use 2 to 3 teaspoons per pound of meat. A 4-pound chicken will take 1/2 to 2 tablespoons. You'll find hickory-smoked salt available in the spice rack of most supermarkets. To make a spicier rub, substitute hot paprika for some or all of the sweet paprika.

Nepali Grilled Chicken

"This grilled chicken, marinated in a tomato-based blend of flavorings, may be Nepali (we've eaten a version of it in Kathmandu) or it may be a Nepali chef-inspired invention, but either way it's good. Use a cleaver to cut the chicken into pieces as you wish for grilling (we usually cut legs into two, and breasts into four, for example), or ask the butcher to do it."

Beet Burgers

Originally published as "Vegetarian Cutlets", we informally call them beet burgers and dress them like a regular beef burger. Fry them on the first side to get a little crust so they hold together when flipping. I sometimes use two spatulas to flip the burger, one to lift the burger out of the pan and then carefully place another spatula on top. Turn them over and slide the burger off the 2nd spatula, now on the bottom, back into the pan.
