Braised Cucumbers

sept. 2011 018

Ever since i saw the movie “Julie and Julia” I have been intrigued by the idea of braised cucumbers. Well I finally got up the nerve to make them and let me tell you… THE ROCK!!!!!

The original recipe I found called for mint but I didn’t have any so I used some marjoram from the garden and wow it was awesome.


Here is the recipe I came up with…


4 cucumbers peeled, seeded and cut into spears

1/4 cup butter

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tap fresh cracked black pepper

1/2 tsp fresh lemon zest

5 to 8 marjoram leaves, chopped


Melt the butter in a skillet and toss in the cucumbers. Sauté until they turn slightly browned all over. Add salt, pepper and lemon zest. Continue to cook for a few more minutes. Take off heat and stir in marjoram.



I love trying new recipes. I hope you like this one!!
