One of my most core cooking beliefs, cemented over 15 vegetarian years (that ended shortly before this site began) is that most, or at minimum, half of what we think we like about eating meat has absolutely nothing to do with meat, but the way it’s prepared, from the salt-pepper char on a steak to the layers of flavors in a long braise. It’s this logic that led me to威廉希尔网上娱乐蘑菇布吉尼翁和pate乃至比萨豆，其中豆类采取肉类和面食的地方在ziti样菜。它就是导致我莫利叶的2018“牛腩炖鹰嘴豆”的辉煌砸我的下巴(cozy braised chickpeas with squash), a brisket-free, vegan dish that uses the flavors you’d put in your favorite brisket braise but with chickpeas and vegetables. My sister had recently gone vegan, and the timing was perfect for our new year meal.
But brisket preferences are highly personal, so I make it with我的喜欢烩，改编自Maya的糖醋高假日牛腩中William Hill橄榄球 。It uses tomato paste for body and a couple glugs of vinegar for a deeply tangy sauce I reverse-engineered from the version with mother in-law makes which I described in the book as using “a bottle of None Of Your Business, a few spoonfuls of Also Not Going To Tell You, and a packet of So Many Questions Today! How Is My Beautiful Grandson?” I keep the big carrot coins used in the book’s recipe but add meaty slices of portobello mushrooms for a hearty, cozy stew. I thought I’d get ahead this year (or for the first time, ever) and make it a week early and freeze it, but we can’t stop eating it, sometimes even cold from the fridge. Fortunately, it starts with two cans of already-cooked beans (which cook until extra-tender, but they don’t fall apart), and vegetables you can buy almost anywhere, so it won’t be much of a hurdle to make more.
