Another GOPM: sausage and chicken

leave a comment »

Planned:

1/2 c pearled barley
2 Tbsp sherry vinegar
1 Italian pork sausage, cut into disks (4.6 oz)
1 leek, sliced thinly
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 handfuls chopped celery
2 boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into chunks (7 oz)
good sprinkling of Mural of Flavor seasoning
1 zucchini, diced
3 Roma tomatoes, sliced
1/2 c Kalamata olives, chopped
1/2 eggplant, diced
several anchovy fillets from a jar (packed in olive oil)
1 Meyer lemon, sliced

Pour-over:

2 Tbsp Country French vinaigrette
4 Tbsp Amontillado Sherry

I’ll return to make changes as needed and also deliver the verdict.

UPDATE: No room for kale: omitted.

VERDICT: Excellent. The pearled barley was not al dente this time, and I think the reason is simple: more liquid. Also, the anchovies were an excellent idea, worth repeating when they fit. Kale not missed. Rich taste, as you might expect.
