Series Description

Ironically, Americans tend to complicate their lives in an effort to simplify them. In SIMPLY MING, chef Ming Tsai helps make the yearning for a more manageable lifestyle a reality. Tsai, experienced in classical French, new American and Pan-Asian cuisine, first introduced viewers to his unique blend of global culinary traditions in his Food Network series, East Meets West With Ming Tsai. In this new series for public television, Tsai provides a repertoire of very simple recipes which viewers can integrate into numerous dishes. Each of his flavor-packed sauces, salsas, pastes, rubs, stocks, syrups and doughs consists of fewer than seven ingredients, and each requires no more than 20 minutes to prepare. Guest include Martin Yan, Todd English, Jody Adams, Gordon Hamersley, Jasper White and others. 2004. Series release date: 2004

Program Description

Guest Chef: Lidia Bastianich

The tangy burst of fresh cranberries is often a flavor associated with the fall. Ming proves that the options for this petite fruit are virtually limitless when combined with a traditional teriyaki sauce. The result is a Cranberry-Teriyaki Glaze that adds flavor to dishes across a variety of culinary traditions. The glaze gives an incomparable flavor to Cranberry-Teriyaki Chicken on a bed of Garlic Bok Choy and Cranberry-Teriyaki Lamb Rack with Couscous Salad, while also keeping the meat wonderfully moist. For the vegetarian option of Cranberry-Teriyaki Sweet Potatoes Satays, Ming glazes spears of sweet potato with the savory sauce and gives them a finish of chives and sesame seeds. Then Ming travels to Oishii Sushi in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts to see how versatile teriyaki is in the Japanese kitchen. Lidia Bastianich, the matriarch of Italian-American cuisine, creates the perfect fall dish of Oven-Braised Pork Chops with Red Onions, Pears and Cranberry-Teriyaki Sauce or Costolette Di Maiale Brasate Al Forno Con Pere – that captures all the wonderful flavor of the teriyaki with a traditional Italian dish.
