Recipe: From Keepers: Our Favorite Meat Loaf

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

This meatloaf is super moist and flavorful, with a sweet glaze, and because it's wider and lower than a typical meatloaf, there’s more  browned crust and it cooks faster.

Tributes: Mavis Gallant

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

It’s a common fantasy for many aspiring writers to move to Paris, in hopes of becoming famous.  Mavis Gallant is one of the few who did; plus she succeeded where so many others fail, in only a matter of years.  The Montreal native became known as a “writer’s writer” in the course of 10 collections of short stories, which originally appeared in the New Yorker.  She died recently in Paris, the city where she worked for most of her life, at the age of 91.  We were lucky to have had the chance to speak with her back in 2006 when she reflected on a career that had already spanned half a century.

Recipe: Melissa Clark's Bone in Rib Steak for Two

Friday, February 14, 2014

1 bone-in rib steak, 1 1/2 inches thick
1 garlic clove, halved
1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
Large pinch chili powder
Coarse kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

1. Heat a heavy ovenproof skillet (preferably cast iron) over high heat for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat your broiler.

2. Pat steak dry with paper towels, then vigorously rub cut side of garlic all over steak, particularly the bone. Season generously all over with brown sugar, chile powder, salt and pepper.

3. Place steak in hot pan and carefully, using a potholder, transfer pan to broiler. Cook meat until done to taste, about 5 to 7 minutes for medium rare (you do not need to turn it). Transfer steak to a cutting board, and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
