When someone says plums, fall immediately comes to mind, although there are a few summer varieties also. Either way, it is clear that we don’t use these fruits enough in our kitchens. You should know that plums are some of the most versatile ingredients out there. And we don’t mean just cakes, jams, dumplings, tarts, or any other sweet treats…
With their juicy texture and tart sweetness, plums are just the thing when cooking stews, stir-fries, and sauces. Pork and duck meat are especially happy when upgraded with plums. With this in mind, please step into our kitchen. Can we count you in?
6 plum recipes that let you taste the unexpected
Seared and roasted duck breast served over cinnamon-flavored rice is already a good thing. However, marinating the meat first in a honey plum jam and soy sauce mixture which we’ll then use as a sweet-umami sauce is much better. Did we mention we also tossed some plums into the baking dish?
Although not exactly braising per se, this pork tenderloin is getting some grill pan-searing here, which is followed by a 20-minute roasting at medium-high temperature. Now we’ll have plenty of time to put together a delicious plum sauce made with red wine. Our suggestion is to serve the meat thus flavored over rice.
Make no mistake: this is the main course for a special occasion. The pork becomes juicy and crispy on the outside, while the smoky aroma of plums and rosemary brings out the best qualities of the meat. The slices will look good on anyone’s plate!
Perfect for cold days, this colorful, sweet stew is a perfect, rich and comforting winter warmer. With its joyful colors, the hearty beef, and the sweet, smooth plums this dish is one to remember.
Every chicken meal needs some veggies to complete the experience. Try these garam masala and soy sauce chicken legs, together with some stir-fried veggies like carrots, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and add some smoked plums for an exotic extra flavor.
Just in case you are on a diet, you should know that we kept the vegetable oil out of this pork steak. And although it takes two hours until it’s ready, you’ll end up with a delicious sweet and spicy steak.
