1 package frozen dinner roll dough
½ cup flour, for dusting
3 qt water
2 tsp baking soda
1 egg, beaten
1 Tbsp water
1 ½ Tbsp butter
1 ½ Tbsp flour
¾ cup milk
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
1 cups shredded sharp cheddar
½ cup shredded smoked Gouda
¼ cup beer
1 tsp ground mustard
¼ tsp cayenne
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
4 slices thick cut bacon, chopped
1 ½ Tbsp chives, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp red onion, finely diced
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Thaw the dough for 2 hours on countertop or 8 hours in the fridge.
Cut each dough ball in 3 equal pieces and roll into 3-4 inch rods, dusting with flour as necessary. Lay on baking sheets, 1 inch apart. Proof for 1–2 hours.
Boil water in a stockpot, add baking soda and stir. Drop pretzel rods 10 at a time and leave in water for 30 seconds. Lift out using a spider, shaking off as much water as possible. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, 1 inch apart.
Beat egg and water together and brush on pretzels. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake 15–20 minutes, until lightly browned. Allow to cool on tray.
Melt butter and stir in flour. Cook flour, stirring constantly for 3 minutes. Add milk, whisking quickly to not form lumps. Season with salt and pepper. Continue whisking until thickened. Add cheese, beer, mustard, cayenne and Worcestershire and whisk until combined.
Place pretzel fries in a large serving dish and pour cheese sauce overtop. Garnish with bacon, chives and red onion.
6 Tbs. soy sauce
3 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbs. rice vinegar
1 Tbs. Asian sesame oil
1/2 tsp. chili paste
1 Tbs. cornstarch
1 tsp. sugar (optional)
2 Tbs. corn or peanut oil
2 Tbs. grated fresh ginger
3 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 lb. pork tenderloin or boneless loin, thinly sliced across the grain and cut into small strips
6 oz. shiitake or white button mushrooms, stems discarded and caps thinly sliced
6 cups chicken broth
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, chili paste, cornstarch and sugar. Stir to dissolve the cornstarch and sugar.
Warm a large, heavy saucepan over high heat until hot and pour in the corn oil. Add the ginger and all but 1 Tbs. of the green onions and sauté until fragrant, about 5 seconds. Add the pork and mushrooms and sauté until the pork is just opaque, about 1 minute. Add the broth and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low.
Give the soup seasoning a quick stir, add to the soup, stir well and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the soup begins to thicken slightly, about 5 minutes. Ladle the soup into warmed bowls, garnish with the reserved 1 Tbs. green onions and serve immediately. Serves 4.
