Food Thread: Unctuousness, Alien Vegetables, And The Priciest Shot On The Planet

tacosalpastor.jpg

Pork butt lends itself to long, slow cooking, because of the amount of fat and connective tissue that needs to be rendered and softened. But the end result is marvelous, especially for simple preparations like tacos and pulled pork sandwiches.

Why does it taste so good? Well, all of that rendered fat and connective tissue has been bathing the meat for the hours and hours of the cook, so if you don't screw it up completely (and pork is very forgiving, so it's tough to ruin), every mouthful will have some of that wonderful unctuous fat and gelatin and collagen accompanying the meat.

And why is pork butt on my mind (more than usual)? Because I decided to cook one with my new Sous Vide machine, and it came out perfect. The best I have ever made. 24 hours at 160°, then 90 minutes in the oven at 350° with a bit of extra dry rub to make a nice crust.

Wow. And the best part was that I didn't have to keep checking the temperature of my smoker and worry about drying the meat too much.

Sous Vide won't replace conventional cooking, and I will still use my smoker, because a teaspoon of liquid smoke is only a fair substitute for the real smoke from hard woods (I didn't! I swear! But the recipe called for it). But it sure is easy, and it is fun, so I will now be able to make great tacos even when I don't feel like spending the day communing with my smoker.

I kept those tacos really, really simple. pulled pork, pickled red onions, pickled jalapenos and a liberal several squirts of a mixture of goat cheese and heavy cream. Hey! It was a last minute idea, but it worked very well. It needed some heat to make it good, but a little hot sauce fixed that. And I forgot to use chopped cilantro, but that's for next time.

By the way, one of the problems with Sous Vide is the dearth of good recipes and data. For instance, I made hard-boiled eggs this morning (yeah...just screwing around), and the recipe from the manufacturer was total crap. "Hard-boiled" doesn't mean, "crack the egg and have it pour through your fingers onto the counter." It was embarrassing...slurping up egg from the counter-top.

My local watering hole used to have a fantastic bartender (if you called him a mixologist he would spit in your chocotini), but several years ago he moved on to worse pastures (he's a damned therapist now! What a waste). His cocktail program survived...barely...but without his methodical and inventive approach to cocktail making, it is mostly dead. Making a great cocktail starts with a good recipe, but the technique is important too, and let us not ignore precision. Measure your ingredients, or don't bother trying to make something special. It just won't work more than fitfully.

Anyway, I have been playing around with spicy margaritas (one of my local place's new creations), and one problem I am having is rimming the glass correctly. I have been using black sea salt, which looks great on the glass, but doesn't stick worth a damn.

This amuses me and disturbs me in equal portions. It is vastly amusing that people are taking booze so seriously, but at the end of the day, it is meant to be enjoyed, not traded as a commodity.

Bottle of whisky sells for $1.9 million, smashing auction records

That's $50,000 for each portion, and I simply cannot imagine that it will be appreciably better than a $200 bottle. There is no Holy Grail of food and drinks, and to elevate anything to such a level seems silly.

However, if any of you want to buy that bottle and invite me to taste it, I am all in! I'll bring the Velveeta dip and chips.

******

I love chorizo. I love clams. I love white beans. So why ruin it with apple cider vinegar? In fact, why ruin food with vinegars? I see it in lots of recipes, and rarely is the acid in balance. That's why wine is a much better ingredient!

Spanish Clams with White Beans and Chorizo in Cider Broth

I would make this with white wine and just a splash of the vinegar for the cider flavor. Or maybe a splash of Calvados (French apple brandy).

******

Yes, it's click-bait. And yes, it's at Jew-Hate Central (although the DNC is in the running for that moniker). But I like this list because it takes a sort-of-rational approach to the analysis of risk. Let's face it, had we seen the list in Time or on CNN the number 1 health risk would have been beef. Or bacon.

That's Cauliflower Au Gratin, and it's almost the same recipe I used a few weeks ago to great effect, but sadly lacking the well-aged milk. Yes, I had to use fresh milk, although to be honest I don't think the dish suffered too much.

If any of you need a boost in your vegetable intake, give this a shot. It is easy to make and spectacularly good. I used Ina Garten's recipe, but there must be thousands of similar recipes all over the internet. next time I will use some red pepper flakes to give it a little spicy pop, but still...it's a great dish.

******

And speaking of cauliflower, this is "Romanesco Cauliflower," which I had never seen until a few days ago, where my local market was touting it as some sort of super food. Supposedly it is milder and nuttier tasting compared to regular cauliflower, but I was too intimidated to buy a head, since it looks like an alien, not a food.

Anyone ever try it?

I assume you use a cut lime to moisten the rim? I've never had a problem with that. The biggest mistake noobs make is to put the salt on a plate and lower the glass onto the salt, thus salting both the outside and inside rims. The inside salt then just gets in the drink and tastes awful. Always tilt the glass almost horizontal and tap tap tap it in the salt.

16 I was a very early Sous Vide adopter, buying a SousVide Supreme probably 5 years ago. (Big bread maker looking thing that sits on the counter). But I stopped using it. For some reason, almost everything, especially steaks, just didn't taste quite right. Instead I've been in love with my Big Green Egg type (Costco knockoff), my Flair Espresso maker, and my Instant Pot. I use those constantly. The Espresso maker every day, and the Egg and Instant Pot at least twice a week each, tending to move toward the Instant Pot and away from the Egg as it gets colder. Although I do have a six hour pork rib thing going on right now in the Egg.

38 Been growing romanesco for 30 years. What's cool about it is unlike broccoli or cauliflower that you just cut, you can keep picking those fractal spirals off, and it keeps filling out. Plus, IMHO it tastes better than any other brassica. There's also a purple blushed variety, but it doesn't hold its color very well when cooked, and I think it's not quite as sweet as the chartreuse stuff.

I agree. Romanesco cauliflower (or broccoli) is great. The little fractal florets do look sort of alien.

Because of their superior flavor, I think they are best just steamed with a little butter, salt and maybe some pepper.

104 Tried something new last week-

Clairin!

Which is essentially Haitian moonshine.

These are pot still proof. Essentially what comes out of the still goes into the bottle.

They are insanely flavorful. Lots of crazy flavor mixtures whirling around in there. They make outstanding daiquiris.

The two types I found in our area were -

Clairin Vaval

and

Clairin Le Rocher


Clairin Vaval - tends toward vegetal and fruit flavors. For me the strongest flavor was sort of watermelons and canteloupish, but there was much more going on in there.

Clairin Le Rocher - was more challenging. It had a kind of burnt sugar smokiness, some light industrial solvents (in a good way) and a kind of wonderful marshmallowy fruitiness.

I also used the CLR with Bittermilk's No. 6 Oaxacan Old Fashioned mixer cuz of the smokiness. Man, was that good!

A perfect blending.

So, if you decide to try the Le Rocher, see if you can't scare up some of the BN6OOFM.

Check them out.

117 I'm in soup mode.

The first of the season was a seafood soup/chowder, then a mixed lentil, a Senate navy bean soup, and a delicious pea soup (ham hock AND bacon).

This morning I made a lovely two bean (chickpea and white bean cannellini) with fresh baby spinach and fresh rosemary and sage. A simple soup that comes together with my immersion blender, adding the spinach leaves and chopped sage after pureeing. Sauteed onions and garlic in olive oil to start, and then finished with a drizzle of oil and a sprinkle of parmesan to serve.

Which leads me to that cookbook I grab so often, bon appetit's fast easy fresh. This is where I found that recipe. Adding my own embellishments (like more garlic).

But, three nights in a row I used that cookbook.

Tuna steaks with Herbed Aioli

Duck breasts, sauteed with Wild Mushrooms

Jamaican Jerk Pork Tenderloin with Black Beans and Yellow Rice


Today, the Creamy Bean Soup with Fresh Herbs and Spinach.

If there is one cookbook I would recommend, it would be this one. Very quick, very tasty meals. A good variety. Lots of fish recipes (we eat fish/seafood at least 2-3 a week) which is one part of the book I really like. Even their banana bread recipe is good.

Unless it's baby kale, it's going to be too dang chewy for salads.

If it's full-grown kale, fold the leaves in half, cut out the rib, chop the leaves into about 1" pieces, toss with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roast at about 375 until they get crispy and a bit browned on the edges. That's the only way some of my kids will eat kale.

1 15 1/2 oz. can artichoke hearts, cut fine.
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup Fresh Parmesan cheese
4 oz. Shredded mozzarella
Garlic to taste...which for me mean A LOT.

I'm lucky my local grocer sells fresh duck, but they only put out so many and they do not restock consistently. But due to the french dishes made in my area a lot (like cassoulet), it is readily available. Also, the butcher here and a local private family owned butcher nearby will order whatever you like. Even the fish monger in my local grocer gave me his card if I wanted to do custom orders. I'm sick of trying to buy fresh fish without being able to sniff them all!

I read recently on a professional chef blog that many are opting for frozen seafood because it is flash frozen so quickly (and cleanly) that you get very good seafood as a result, compared to the guessing game in the stores.

220 Because of their superior flavor, I think they are best just steamed with a little butter, salt and maybe some pepper.

Posted by: KTbarthedoor at October 27, 2019 04:33 PM (BVQ+1)

100% on that. The flavor is so delicate it would get drowned, where broccoli or cauliflower has its own pungence that stands up to cheese or stir fry sauces. People that aren't keen on broccoli or cauliflower should give this stuff a whirl.
My Hawaiian friends do Kalua pig in slow cookers with decent results. Sprinkle pork butt/shoulder with liquid smoke, s/p, some sliced fruit like papaya and wrap in banana or ti leaves, and cook slow all day. Not quite the same as buried whole pig, but very different from my smoked stuff. Think the papaya or mango or pineapple makes a huge difference in texture.
Then again they eat Spam sushi and hamburger patties with gravy on rice, so maybe not the best people to rely on for a lot of recipes.

257 Our son gave us a sous vide machine a few years ago
and we love it. Frozen steaks swim in a 130 degree jacuzzi for 75-90
minutes (or more) and come out perfectly done. All they need is a little
seasoning and a quick sear.

That's plenty of time for sides, sauces and cocktails.

Posted by: OldDominionMom at October 27, 2019 05:02 PM (dH/BH)


I know when I learned these things existed in restaurants 30 some odd years ago, I felt vindicated because I knew those perfect filet mignons were somehow cooked before they were grilled, but had no idea how. Awesome they've got consumer versions now.


I emulate the slow-cook on my pellet smoker by smoking on low (150-160) for about 60 minutes and then tossing on the sear box to grill. Oak/pecan is especially amazing if just sp, fruitwood is a lot more subtle if you're wanting to do an herbed butter or other toppings. Absolutely, perfectly, evenly cooked all the way through.

Love this smoker, I've had more tri tip this summer than I've had in the past 10 years.

Newest Traeger have bluetooth, which is a bit much for my needs (but all the rage). Don't cook from work too much.
I'll outline the reason I took the Camp Chef - and I have a buddy that rep'd Traeger for 30 years.

1) I liked the build a bit more (the new Traegers are a bit different). The Traeger had a slanted leg set with a cross member, and I'd bang my knees moving it. Some of the flaws with the Traeger were addressed in the Camp Chef. Such as being able to purge the pellet bin and put in new pellets easily (flavor change). Also, there's access to the ash/heating unit, so you can simply open up the bottom and clean the ash out. The Traeger you've got to take the grate off, the deflector off, and then vacuum the thing out every 3 cookings or so. (this may have been addressed by Traeger, but not as of 201.


2) Most importantly, the Camp Chef has what they call a sear box - either comes with unit or can be purchased at a later date. This replaces the side table, and is basically a tiny grill, so you can sear your meat at 900 degrees. The problem I have with most pellet grills is you can't really grill/sear the meat. They only go up to 400 or so degrees, you're basically baking your sear. Not the same. You can't just cook freaking hamburgers, or sausage. Now, I smoke a tri tip, then throw on to sear. HUGE difference.
3) Both have incredibly stable temperature settings, probes (usually 2) for internal temperature, and a variety of settings. Mine goes slow smoke (160 and 220) then 200, 225, 250, 275, 300 etc. and puts out less smoke than the smoke settings.
I'd assume the new gen Traeger with bluetooth (other companies also have this) have other cool features if you're into this. I tend to just put the meat on and hang out. The pellet hopper holds enough for 10-12 hours worth of smoking.

332 Strictly speaking, the interior--unless you're using a very slender cut of whatever--won't be "smoked." The 'smoke ring'--that pinkish layer between the bark and the cooked interior--only penetrates about 1/8".

Yep.

I get a pretty good smoke ring with my pellet grill, but, normally don't smoke for more than an hour or two before turning the heat up.

This. Typically in a hunk of meat that smoke ring color changes depending on the type of wood you're using. I've also found that if I've brined the meat it might go further in.

Green egg is also an excellent system, but is more hands on. However, for the purist that's a plus. Me? I'm lazy and love nothing more than flicking a switch these days.

Oh, if there's a downside to the pellet grills is they're not quiet. They're not noisy, but the auger motor makes noise, as do the internal fans. So if you're sitting nearby expect to hear a motor running.

I strive fanatically to avoid adding gear to the back porch, if I can smoke with something smaller [an "egg", etc], simpler, cheaper, I'm interested. Not averse to the modern ones but just wondering if I can add a smallish item for smoking - most cooking will remain on the gas grill.

Ah, if you have a gas grill, it would be dumb to get the sear box. As long as you can throw it on some proper fire you should get the results you want. The sear box has an iron grate, but I don't think the thing gets nearly as hot as my professional grill with infra-red did, but hot enough. But $200 is kinda pricey. I'm just short on space currently, so an all in one unit made sense.

406 How do you like them? Does either one have the controller that allows you to program for specific temps?
Posted by: Muad'dib at October 27, 2019 05:35 PM


I'm going to respond to this, and then another comment around some of what clutch said.

I have a medium large ("Century", no longer made), and the older small 'tailgate' model. I like them both (and although the small one is not without it's faults, I probably cook 4x as much on it as the larger).

You can select temps from around 160 up to 450 (degrees F) at (in general) 25 degree F increments. The large one is pretty accurate, and holds temps well (if you're not opening it all the time, but that's true for any grill). The smaller one is off about 10dF to start, doesn't really hold temp well until 325 or higher.

The smoke on the food is much better on the smaller one, for some reason.

For calibration purposes, I have a large Weber Genesis gass grill, a Sabre w/IR, the two Traegers, a Kamado (think Green Egg+), and 3 Weber Smokey Mountains (2 18", 1 22").

The small Traeger gets most of my everyday cooks. It also causes me more irritation than all the others combined. You have to clean it like every 4 or 5 cooks; if you don't, it's going to let you know. Fortunately, it's by far the easiest to clean.

Supposedly, the newer small one has corrected a number of problems. I'll probably get one in the next year or so.

408 I strive fanatically to avoid adding gear to the
back porch, if I can smoke with something smaller [an "egg", etc],
simpler, cheaper, I'm interested. Not averse to the modern ones but just
wondering if I can add a smallish item for smoking - most cooking will
remain on the gas grill.


Posted by: rhomboid at October 27, 2019 05:53 PM (QDnY+)


I like the egg a lot, if I had a proper backyard I'd probably have one. One reason I avoided one in my new townhome was the weight, and wrestling one in by myself. In my first home I was all wood cooking all the time. The wood flavor from something like a green egg is unparalleled. And the heat generated is awesome. Can't say enough good things about them, and if you're into the zen of cooking - they're the way to go.

I used to have one of those little upright pot smokers, but it took lots of watching, lots of tending. Constantly putting more chips or wood on. I've also used the old fashioned fire box to the side type, but those need constant rotation and watching as well. The heat isn't particularly even.


Pit Boss and other similar upright analog systems are about $150-200ish and do a great job. They are a %$% to clean though.

The beauty of the pellet grills is they're idiot proof which is great
for me. The typical Traeger/Camp Chef/Z Grills run $350-800. So about the same as a regular propane BBQ at home despot.

416 This whole "Congress wasn't briefed in advance" thing is yet another nothingburger in a Beltway increasingly obsessed with same [well, Dems and their media wing, and the clueless army of former officials]. Like jawboning a foreign leader with whose nation we have a mutual legal assistance treaty about a judicial investigation of matters relating to our own elections.


Congress is informed - intel committees - in a formal way about intel covert ops, though even those are broad outlines, objectives, resources, etc., not detailed play-by-play. The big eight [intel committees + whole body bipartisan leadership are informed of select matters from time to time.


But there has never been a formal or required pre-notification to the Hill about specific military operations. For obvious reasons.


Unless there is some pretty dramatic new, and extremely ill-advised, statute I'm unaware of, this is yet another tempest about what is absolute SOP.

I mentioned above friends in Hawaii that did Kalua pork in a crock pot, but they'd sprinkle with liquid smoke, then wrap in banana or ti leaves with a few slices of fruit, salt and pepper. Texture was awesome, different from regular smoked. Probably in part to being sort of slowly steamed and the fruit. Hard to go wrong - and a lot easier if you're someplace that's snowing.

Good idea. I started with a bullet smoker, which happens to be the perfect size and orientation to smoke a small turkey, and did to great effect for about two years. Then I decided to step up to something with more capacity without doing the research, before I was ready, and ended up with this thing, and left the bullet smoker with my parents.

447 I resisted getting a pellet grill for years, figuring it was the worst of both worlds (gas & charcoal), and would grill as well as a grill, or smoke as well as a smoker.

I'd say now it's a good compromise for gas/charcoal, and while the latter statement is true, I'll do a half rack of baby backs on it for my wife on the small one, get almost as good as smoke on it as from a 6-8 hr smoke on a WSM, in 35-45 min. I still use the others for specific things. If you really want low and slow, I'd go with a WSM. I've been experimenting with brisket, getting past the 160 dF hump on low temp, foiling, and finishing at 350 w/good results.

Heat the big Traeger to 450, slap a rubbed chicken back down for 70 min., and come back to perfectly grilled chicken, better than any rotisserie chicken I've ever done. You can do 3 or 4 chickens at once if you want on the bigger Traeger.

I originally thought the lack of 'sear' would be a deal-breaker, but I get compliments on my steaks all the time. They come off with a wonderful mahogany color, and enough smoke that people notice.

clutch made some interesting points around Camp Chef. It sounds like a comparison is in order. I'm happy w/Traeger, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't jump ship.

Anybody here still have or had a traditional wood-fired smoker, no

are to use?

I have a Pitts and Spits with the barrel for water and grill above it with the firebox off the back. 1/4 inch steel for the box, really well made but wood as fuel has so many variables in temps you have to stand there adjusting constantly. If you like playing with fire it's fun if you start with charcoal and then nice dry wood on top. Briskets are at least 10 hours. Not a set it and forget it rig, but if you have the energy, time and patience you'll have some great bbq.

478 I think the path of the smoke is another big factor, in addition to heat control. The bullet type is a pain to regulate heat with, but all the smoke runs right up around the food. The one with the firebox on one end and the flue at the other sounds reasonable, except any draft at the flue just pulls the smoke straight to the top of the barrel and along the length of it and right out the flue.

Maybe extending the flue under the level of the food would give it more chance to circulate, but I can't be bothered.

Chourice is a pork sausage flavored with a lot of paprika and smoked. Kind of like Spanish chorizo, but usually with more coarsely cut chunks of meat. Makes an awesome sauce with tomato puree, red wine, onions, garlic, mushrooms, sliced bell peppers....comfort food on a raw, rainy day like what this is.

Posted by: Muad'dib at October 27, 2019 06:26 PM


I've found the Weber Smokey Mountains to be very easy to maintain temp. I've replaced the water pan with one twice the size. On a rib cook (6-8 hrs), you can get by without replenishing either fuel or water. For brisket, (12-14+h), you need to add fuel once, and water once or twice. The real purpose of the water is a thermal buffer.

There are a number of fan modules that make temp maintenance almost effortless. Some of them cost 2x the cost of the WSM. I'm always intrigued, but not enough to buy one yet.

It's time consuming but very easy. No need to cook the chicken first. Just all the cutting into cubes and packing in the jars and dealing with the pressure cooker takes a bit of time.

I figure that for $14 outlay I got what would be almost $100 of Swanson canned chicken if I bought it at the store. (And mine is way better.).

558 I pressed grapes a couple of weeks ago, and then took the remaining hulls and fruit that didn't have all the juice squoze out, and ran it through the steam juicer. The juice from that was deep purple, and not terribly sweet, but I canned it anyways. All that comes out of the juicer is juice, no hulls or stems or pulp, so it tends to be a bit cleaner.

I had one quart left over I drank half of and put the rest in the fridge, and today I poured it out to drink, and it had tiny black needlelike crystals in the bottom.

The grapes have a great deal of tartaric acid in them that will start to condense out and cause crystals if the juice is stored at a low enough temperature. I have found ones the size of a .22 bullet in the bottom. They tend to be purplish and have facets and everything. When you see that you know the juice is quite sweet.

561 I love Romanesco, I usually have it raw, but it cooks up like a cross between broccoli and cauliflower. My local farmers' market had nice small ones which had a more delicate flavor than the large ones I've seen in stores.

Someone recommended oxtails for puppeh, so I'm giving them a whirl tonight. Hopefully he'll enjoys the extra glucosamine.

569 CBD - canned vs. frozen chicken = shelf life and no spoilage in a power outage.

I know some of you will be horrified, but I can guarantee you that home canned meats (done correctly!!) have a shelf life of 5 years. Maybe more, I haven't had any around long enough to try more than 5 years.

Also no chance of freezer burn. No waiting for it to thaw. You want chicken salad, chicken tacos? We're good to go in ten minutes.

610 Regarding dangerous foods, there are some that can kill you without even trying to consume them. Mostly thanks to the law of gravity.

In particular, there's an... interesting fruit called the Durian. Supposed to have creamy pulp inside, but a nasty smell. But, like coconuts, they're suspended from tree limbs and are rather large fruits. They fall while someone's below, and someone is going to have a bad day.
