Why didn't I take a picture?  

 

When it's too damn hot to cook.  Two 8" plates in the freezer.  Later put down a bed of lettuce, chunks of watermelon, hand melon, peach slices and fresh picked strawberries and blueberries.  Top with a small scoop of orange sherbert and one of salty caramel gelato.  That was last night, quite filling.

I have absolutely no clue what they use this for in Filipino cooking, but by gods it is good as a marinade.

Salmon steak ready to be blackened, skewers with scallops, shrimp, red onion and peppers.  (1/2 jalapeno' on each stick).

BTW:  Spend the money, get good stainless steel skewers, you won't look back.

 fried and steamed Chinese pork buns. 

Should have made them a little spicier, but I already ate 1/3 of them, so clearly not a deal breaker.

Kind of a cross over with this thread: https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/off-topic-discussion/the-stress-of-the-election/178275/page1/

Needed a nice dinner to ground myself and the wife.  Followed Alton Brown's recipe from the Good Eats episode "Immersion Therapy" and sous vided an eye round.  Made french dips.  God damn it was good.  Consider us solidly grounded.

SWMBO Won't let me in the kitchen except the refrigerator, the microwave,  and my pizza oven. I may have built it but I did to her specs. so it belongs to her ( and she's a fantastic cook)

Neither of us are slouches in the kitchen.  I do have a propensity to overcomplicate my recipes though

We are new to Sous Vide cooking - so far it's been awesome but searing on a cast iron skillet in grape seed oil makes a huge mess of my kitchen.

What's you go-to technique after cooking in the SV? Grill? Cast iron skillet? Just ignore the weird meat color and eat?

I prefer the grill or charcoal chimney to sear but since I don't have a gas grill I usually don't feel like lighting charcoal just to sear. 

I have mostly been doing chicken lately and one lamb shank. I just sear in a cast iron pan with a small amount of oil, usually olive since that is what is handy.

Kind of depends on what we are making, generally its a cast iron skillet though.  Definitely can't just ignore the weird color and eat.  Grosses the wife out, I can't even let her see it in that state or her appetite is gone.

Totally understand that. Thanks. 

..we've been (gas) grilling about 20% and pan searing the rest. So good regardless.

Beef Tips Bourgognone.

2 lbs beef ( I used flank steak but stew beef works fine)

Roll in flour, salt & pepper mixture

In a Dutch Oven, brown in oil.

Add 1 small onion, slivered

Add about 20 mushrooms (1 pint?) washed and sliced

1 1/2 cups red wine; Cab or Burgandy work well

Lower heat and cover.  Stir very often as the brown bits will stick to the bottom and the flour will thicken the whole thing up. 

You're going to have to add water as it cooks.  Some people add bacon, garlic and spice bags; use your tastes.  Restaurants serve it over linguini, I used rice as it sucks up the gravy better.  I've seen it over mashed potatoes also.

The bread is Honey Wheat biscuits I made a few days ago so I sliced them, covered in butter and broiled them brown.

Visually, it's not much. But a simple change to the just beer to finish and cook through sausage to finish them is to add butter and cold brew coffee to the beer. The fat from the butter renders and grabs the sugars from the beer, and the acidity from the coffee balance out the sweet malt and sugars. 

 

It's always amazing how much sugar in the beer the butter finds to caramelize with...

thanksgiving edition. 

 

Prime rib sous vide overnight with a rub of mesquite smoked salt and black pepper. Pulled after about 14 hours at 127*, rested and then coated with about 2lbs of amish butter compounded with rosemary sage thyme and garlic, back into the oven for 15min at 475*. 

 

Purple cauliflower puree mixed with horseradish sauce and british sharp cheddar. 

 

Turnips au gratin with sliced portabellos, a mix of asiago fresco and pecorino romano cheese in the bechamel, with more melty goodness thrown on top.

 

Dessert was a homemade fruit crisp of pears and dried sour cherries. Orange infused walnut and vietnamese cinnamon streusel, basic ass home made whipped cream. 

 

This is the first time since my whole hospital E36 M3 that I've really flexed my cooking skills. I'm really trying to avoid sugar and fat and carbs and salt which means I eat a berkeleypile of salads and basic vegetables. It's not doing me any good, but I'm trying. It did feel good to get all the kitchen gadgets out tho. Kitchen aid, sous vide stick, spice grinder....made a giant mess.

Today I'm making cornbread crusted pot pie out of turkey bits.  One day next week though, I want to attempt making Tourtiere - French Canadian Meat Pie.  Trish grew up on the Border and after midnight mass on Christmas Eve her family would sit down to these.  There are many recipes, but none of them say to put the meat in a food processor or blender to make it finer.  That's how it was done up north.

The wife and I's friends have a bi-monthly zoom dinner.  We all choose a recipe (apps, entree, drink, dessert) and we all make the same thing.  As we eat we fire up zoom and BS with each other and get a little drunk.  As a substitute for actual human interaction its a bit like kissing your sister, but the food is good.

Last night's dinner:

https://www.theendlessmeal.com/christmas-cranberry-margarita/

https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/frozen-peppermint-delight/  (recommend using peppermint bark instead of the crushed candies the recipe calls for.)

 

 

This glorious bastard is getting put in semi-permanent rotation.
