Marc Forgione's Carrot-Glazed Carrot
A Twist on the Traditional Side Dish
Food Network's "Next Iron Chef" winner Marc Forgione serves up this simple but delicious glazed-carrot side dish at his steakhouse, American Cut.
For the glaze:
In a saucepan over medium-high heat, reduce the orange and carrot juice by half. While liquid is reducing, add mint. When liquid has reduced, add honey and brown sugar and cook until the sugar is dissolved.
In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch with 3 teaspoons of water. Remove the mint from the liquid and add the cornstarch-water mixture.
For the carrot:
Combine all of the ingredients in a deep sauté pan and bring up to a simmer. If liquid does not fully cover the carrots, add water.
Cover and cook until carrots are tender when poked with a fork, or around 15-20 minutes.
For each carrot, in a sauté pan over medium-high heat melt ½ tablespoon butter and cook until butter browns. Add 1 whole carrot and approximately 3/4 cup of the glaze. Toss the carrot in the glaze until coated.
Place the carrots on a plate, pour the glaze over it and finish with a pinch of Maldon salt.
