Anne Burrell’s Recipes

Star of Food Network’s “Worst Cooks in America” and author of “Own Your Kitchen,” Anne Burrell showed Steve how to make a delicious braised chicken with pomegranate molasses.

Bacon-Wrapped Dates with Chorizo and Manchego

Makes: 12 pieces
Times: About 20 minutes


  • 12 Medjool dates, pitted
  • ½ pound Manchego, cut into 12 rectangle logs
  • 3 links fresh chorizo, casings removed
  • 6 slices of bacon, cut in half
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Make an incision lengthwise in each date, open it up, and flatten.
  • Place a piece of Manchego in the center of each date.
  • Break each chorizo link into quarters. Form each piece of chorizo into a log that is the length of the date and squish it onto the Manchego. Close the date around the filling and squeeze to secure. Wrap each date with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  • Place all the dates on a baking sheet, transfer to the oven, and roast for 7 to 8 minutes or until the bacon is starting to crisp up. Turn over the dates and roast the dates for another 7 to 8 minutes.
  • In a small bowl combine the syrup and vinegar.
  • Remove the dates from the oven and brush them with the syrup-vinegar mixture. Return the dates to the oven and bake another 1 to 2 minutes or until they are crackly and sticky. Remove from the oven and let rest for a minute, remove the toothpicks, and serve.

Cauliflower “Steaks” with Sautéed Porcini and A Poached Egg

Serves 4
Time: About 1 hour


For the cauliflower

  • 1 head of cauliflower, trimmed and cut into four 1⁄2-inch cross-section slices from the middle, rounded outside edges removed and cut into bite-size florets
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt

For the porcini

  • 1⁄2 pound pancetta, cut into 1⁄4-inch dice
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 pound porcini or portobello mushrooms, cleaned and cut into 1⁄2-inch dice
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary, leaves finely chopped
  • Salt
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 1⁄2 cup dry white wine

For the eggs

  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 4 large eggs
  • Salt
  • 1 bunch of fresh chives, finely chopped


For the cauliflower

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. On a baking sheet, toss the cauliflower florets with olive oil and salt. Add the “steaks” to the baking sheet, coat with olive oil, and season with salt. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip the steaks and stir the florets. Bake for another 15 to 20 minutes or until the cauliflower is soft and brown. Remove from the oven and reserve.

For the porcini

  • Toss the pancetta in a large sauté pan with a few drops of olive oil and bring the pan to medium-low heat. Cook the pancetta, stirring occasionally, until it is brown and crispy and has rendered some fat, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Toss in the garlic and cook until golden and aromatic, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the garlic and ditch it—it has fulfilled its garlic destiny.
  • Crank up the heat to medium-high. When the fat starts to sizzle, toss in the mushrooms and rosemary and stir to combine. Season with salt and crushed red pepper. If the pan seems dry, add a few more drops of olive oil. Cook the mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until they start to soften, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add the wine. Using a wooden spoon, scrape any brown deliciousness off the bottom of the pan. Continue to cook the mushrooms until most of the wine has evaporated. Remove from the heat, taste, and re-season if needed. Toss in the reserved cauliflower and keep warm over low heat.

To poach the eggs

  • Fill a medium saucepan two-thirds of the way with water and add the vinegar. Bring the water to a boil (BTB), then reduce the heat until no bubbles break the surface of the water. You are creating a very gentle cooking environment—like an egg Jacuzzi.
  • Break the eggs very close to the surface of the water and cook for 4 minutes or until the whites are cooked through and the yolks are warm and runny.

To assemble

  • Place a cauliflower “steak” on each serving plate and top each with a spoonful of the porcini hash.
  • Using a slotted spoon, carefully remove each egg from the poaching liquid and make a pit stop on a paper towel to blot any excess water. Nestle an egg on top of the porcini and cauliflower. Sprinkle the eggs with a few grains of salt and some chives and serve immediately.

Braised Chicken with Pomegranate Molasses

Serves: 4
Time: About 45 minutes


  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • Crushed red pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • 8 chicken thighs, trimmed of excess skin
  • 1 cup pomegranate molasses
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 thyme bundle
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 bunch of fresh chives, finely chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Coat a large sauté pan with olive oil, toss in 2 smashed garlic cloves and a pinch of crushed red pepper. Bring the pan to medium-high heat. When the garlic is golden and very aromatic, remove it and discard—it has fulfilled its garlic destiny.
  • Season the chicken thighs with salt and place them skin side down in the pan. Don’t crowd the pan or the thighs will steam instead of brown—you may have to work in batches here, no worries. Brown the chicken thighs really well on both sides, about 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the thighs to a baking sheet and reserve.
  • Ditch the oil from the pan and add ½ cup of the pomegranate molasses along with ¼ cup of chicken stock. Bring the mixture to a boil and let it evaporate by half—it should be slightly thick and syrupy.
  • Return the chicken to the pan, reduce the heat to medium, and cook in the sauce for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until it clings to the chicken in a yummy embrace.
  • Transfer the chicken to the baking sheet and roast for 10 to 12 minutes or until cooked through.
  • While the chicken roasts, add the remaining molasses, stock, and garlic to the pan along with the thyme bundle and a pinch of crushed red pepper. Taste and season with salt if needed. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer (BTB, RTS). Cook until the liquid is thick and syrupy. Discard the garlic cloves and thyme bundle.
  • Remove the chicken from the oven, transfer to a serving dish, drizzle with the sauce, and sprinkle with the pomegranate seeds and chives before serving.
