What To Cook This Weekend

Cooler and shorter days are here and it’s time to experiment in the kitchen. Here are a few interesting recipes to try out on family and friends this weekend.

Katsudon (Pork-Cutlet Rice Bowl)

Katsudon is a comforting, belly-warming dish from Japan, composed of sliced pork cutlets simmered in a dashi-based broth with onion and eggs and served over a bowl of warm rice.

Crisp Stuffed Chicken Cutlets

Fried to a golden hue, the dish is both crunchy and greaseless. The crumbs insulate the delicate meat and help keep it from overcooking.

Shaved Brussels Sprouts With Pecorino and Walnuts

Shave the sprouts with a mandoline or a food processor or a sharp, sharp knife. Then combine with raw walnut halves, pecorino crumbled off the cheese with a fork, olive oil, and salt. Mix aggressively, so that the sprouts begin to wilt a little. And that’s it. You’ll see.

Deep-Dish Apple Pie

The thicker rim is especially satisfying, like a buttery, crumbly slab of shortbread. You can use a 10-inch deep-dish pie pan, or a deep nine- or 10-inch square, or another 2 1/2- to 3-quart baking dish of your choice. A mix of apple types always makes the best filling.

Savory Dutch Baby

This savory Dutch baby is like Yorkshire pudding meets a popover meets a gougère, flavored with browned butter, Parmesan and thyme. You can serve it for brunch, pancake style. Or try it as an hors d’oeuvre.
