Boneless, marinated and grilled leg of lamb

Video Recipe - My favorite recipe for leg of lamb. The best taste and fairly quick preparation. What's not to love about it? The marinade and grilling results in a very good and strong flavor. The trick is that a the leg gets more surface when the bone is removed. And the surface is of course where most of the flavor is.

I am currently translating the recipes from my danish site as quickly as possible.

Boning and Butterflying a Leg Of Lamb
Video Recipe - Typically we fry a leg of lamb whole. Because it's the easiest to do. But a really good trick is to debone and butterfly it. You can cook it a lot faster then. The flattened shape also gives more room for a browned surface. You will also get more of that smoky barbecued flavor all oever the meat. Or you can roll them into a meat roll with marinade inside, so you get the marinade flavor onto all of the meat.
Potato Rosti - Swiss Potato Pancakes - Pommes Rösti
Video Recipe - Rösti are made with cooked potatoes, so I use it often as "leftovers" instead of the typical fried potatoes, hash and so on. But it is an accessory that everyone likes, and it has the advantage that you can add bacon, onion, cheese, apple or fresh herb. Which promises it over the other simple potato dishes.
Kvalitella - Because it rhymes with homemade Nutella
Video Recipe - My own recipe for a sweet hazel-nutty-chocolate'y spread. I don't think I have to tell you what it can be used for ...
Pan Fried Potatoes - Cottage Potatoes
Cottage potatoes are raw potatoes that are cooked in a frying pan. It's a good way to fry 2-4 servings of potatoes. However, it is not a good way to cook large quantities of potatoes. If they lie in layers on the pan, then the upper potatoes are cooked, and the bottom ones are in high risk of burning. There may be raw potatoes, hidden among the other ones and that can really make pan fried potatoes into a sad affair. Otherwise, you must use a really long frying time on large portions to be sure that all the potatoes are tender. At the risk of some getting burned. So here are my tips for making them.
Homemade popcorn
Video Recipe - One of the best snacks you can, well snack on, is also one of the easiest to make yourself. If you make them yourself, they are also much better than the ones you buy pre-popped. Warm and fresh. Maybe even made with clarified butter instead of oil. I get so sad when I see someone buying popcorn in bags from the supermarket when the homemade ones are twice as good. Maybe they are even 3.1415 times better !? So make them yourself ... right? Please!

Veal shank is the same piece of meat that is used for Osso Buco, but a slow braising with a sweet port wine and a good stock puts that meat into a completely different class. It is also a dish that practically cannot fail. If you like meat that is so tender that it falls apart when eating, and has a dark strong beef flavor. Then this is just the ticket. The long list of ingredients can look somewhat daunting, but the basic principle is to just brown the meat and the vegetables, and then braise / let it simmer it in some wine.

Poppies, copenhagen poppy, tea poppy, danish pastry breakfast rolls with poppy seeds
Video recipe - it is well known that we danes have a hampering for danish pastry. Even our breakfast bread is often made from this. There is the classic "poppy" (birkes) that is a non sweet danish pastry with a load of poppy seed on top. Hence the name. And there is the "copenhagen poppy / tea poppy" where the pastry is a bit sweeter and there is almond remonce for filling. It is not quite a cake and not quite a breakfast roll. But very good none the less.
Beansprouts - the worlds smallest veggie garden
Video recipe - When beans sprouts it starts a lot og biological processes, that turns the hard and reather healthy beans into even healthier vegetables. Bean sprouts are good in salads and as a filler in soups or asian food. The sprouts you buy in the supermarket are often a bit bitter and has a taste of dirt. If you grow your own you can eat them before the taste turns dirt-like and bitter. They actually taste a lot more like fresh green peas.
