Tamarind & Teriyaki Barbecue Sauce - CG

The Tamarind Sauce used to be served with the Beef Filet as in the menu item: "Oak-fired Beef Filet with Three Cheese Potato Gratin, Asparagus, and Tamarind Barbecue Sauce". The Sauce is no longer on the menu and has been replaced with the TERIYAKI SAUCE as in: "Oak-fired Filet of Beef with Potatoes, Bacon, Pearl Onions, Mushrooms and Teriyaki Barbecue Sauce" - (from a Jan. 2008 menu.)

The good news is, the Teriyaki Barbecue Sauce is the same basic recipe as the Tamarind Barbecue Sauce and both are great served on grilled beef filet.

TERIYAKI SAUCE
California Grill, Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Yield: 1 quart

1 cup Aji-Mirin
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 each garlic cloves, chopped
1 tbsp ginger, chopped

In a stockpot, add mirin and soy sauce, bring to boil.
Before liquid comes to a boil, add granulated and brown sugars.
Bring to a soft boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer 1 hour and 15 minutes, then strain through a china cap*. Skim any foam that appears after straining.
Then pass through chinois before bagging, then cool.

* Also called a bouillon strainer or chinois. It is used to strain sauces, stocks and pureed soups; is ultra-fine and will remove tiny seeds and fiber.

Tamarind BBQ Sauce
California Grill, Disney’s Contemporary Resort

Same as above but add 1/2 cup pure **tamarind concentrate (paste) to the mirin and soy sauce in step 1. Use non reactive saucepan. Stir to dissolve tamarind, loosening the strands. Continue as above.

**Tamarind pulp tastes like dates mixed with lemon and peaches. It is sour and acidic so use it like you would lemon juice.

Interesting how people's taste buds are. I love capers and olives. esp when mixed in a dish like Pasta Putanesca.
I also love a good tapenade with crusty bread. Have you ever tried that? It might fool you into thinking there's no actual olives in the recipe,

I assured her that we would be going twice, once on the night of her arrival-she was very happy! And while she liked the one at Narcoossee's, her heart still lies with the one from Kona.

I tried doing a search and couldn't find it anywhere-anyone have it?

TIA!
I've only got the one from the now closed Ariel's at the Beach Club Resort. It was delicious. Disney is pretty good about getting back with requests if you feel like contacting them:
General Guest Mail: guest.mail@wdw.disneyonline.com

I'd love to have that one as wel in case they send it to you.

Quick update on the Guiness Stew Day 2.
I added another pound of browned beef cubes and 2 cubed potatoes, then let it simmer uncovered for 40". I served it with the Baking Powder Biscuits from "Cooking With Mickey VL. II".
It was MUCH better. The stew was the right texture and the broth was very good. Mom loved the biscuits and immediately took the recipe book so she can make them for a party this weekend with the Boma Squash soup. Gotta love those Disney recipes!

Maybe, though on the menu it's only listed as White Chocolate Cheesecake I sent an email to guest services so if they send it I can compare the two and let you know. If they don't, I'll try the one you posted-it looks good!

Thanks!

Oh, and here's a pix of it from Sept.

For the Rose & Crown Shepherds Pie, I've made it. We love it! The savory is important to add.

Here's a recipe I didn't see listed which I got during out Sept free dining trip:

Potato Casserole from the Garden Grill Restaurant, the Land

2 lbs potatoes, diced
2 lbs shredded potatoes
2 c diced onions
1 T dried thyme
1 qt heavy cream
8 egg yolks
8 oz mild cheddar cheese, shredded
6 oz parmesan cheese
2 T salt
1 1/2 t white pepper

Mix together all ingredients, reserving 2 oz cheddar cheese. Spray 2X10X10 pan with nonstick spray. Fill pan 3/4 of the way full with mixed ingredients. Top with remaining cheese & cover with parchment, then foil. Bake at 325 for 50 minutes. Remove foil and paper and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes.

That sounds yummy. I'm putting together a Disney menu for DS's birthday dinner next week and am spoiled for choice! I thought about doing the Ohana potatoes but this sure sounds good too.

I've not read the whole thread, so maybe it's been requested already... anyone have the recipe for the potato casserole at Garden Grill?
