I have to admit, I’m not ready to give up my family recipe for traditional Italian sauce (aka gravy). It is the first thing I learned to cook on my own and is close to my heart. So, I’ve found a great comp that you can use as a guide so that you can make your own! Click the link to find that along with a meatball recipe. You should know by now that I never buy pre-made 🤓
Sure; why not? Now, I must say there is a turkey going along with this in my house. I have a great way to prepare a bone in leg of lamb that would be a great addition to your thanksgiving feast! You can roast it or smoke, you choose.
Smother it in harissa! Make your own right at home. It’s spicy, but delicious at that.
Start with the main ingredient, dried chilies. Use any kind you like. I got these ones from the owner of an authentic Mexican restaurant so they can really be any type.
What you’ll need:
4 oz dried chilies
4 cloves of garlic
tomato paste or sauce
2 Tbls olive oil
These amounts are for about a 5 lb leg of lamb.
What to do:
Soak the chilies in boiling water for 1/2 hour. Reserve the water for the sauce. Remove any stems and seeds.
Toast the herbs in a small pan over the stove
Grind all the spices in a coffee or herb grinder.
In a food processor, combine all the ingredients and process until smooth.
Add reserved water if necessary. It depends on the consistentcy you need.
