Food Thread: Steak For Dinner? Again?

steakchipotle.jpg

Is anyone else deeply ambivalent about flavoring good steak? I sure am, in spite of the delights of some of those flavorings. compound butters (like the chipotle butter in the photo) usually taste great, and the classic Italian presentation of excellent olive oil and a squeeze of lemon is a marvelous thing. But the flavor of a perfectly cooked piece of nicely marbled beef is so good and pure and simple and...dare I say it...perfect, that it seems a bit of a waste to tart it up with other stuff. It's almost (shudder) French!

Commenter redc1c4 sent along some cooking tips from a high-end butcher in La La Land, and while they are pretty straightforward, I would not consider them the Gospel.

1. Temper the meat.
Yup...I agree. Take it out of the refrigerator about an hour before cooking. I have been doing this for years, and when I can't for some reason I think I have noticed a difference.

2. Season aggressively.
Our second point of agreement, but I season when I take the steak out of the refrigerator. I think that with time, salt penetrates the meat a bit and adds to the experience. And...I hold the steak in one hand and a big pinch of Kosher salt in the other, and sprinkle from up high. That makes it nice and even.

But they also say to use pepper, and I must disagree! I think pepper burns at high temperatures and does not belong on the steak until it is done cooking.

3. Heat.
Preheat whatever method you are using. No argument from me.

4. Patience.
Don't poke and prod and move the steak too much. That's true of all foods!

5. Rest!
Let it rest. Absolutely. This may be the most important bit of advice they provide. Relax, pour yourself a glass of wine or mead or the blood of your enemies or whatever you drink with steak, put up your feet and enjoy the experience of waiting for something glorious. Five minutes won't kill you.

6. The Finish.
They suggest using a thermometer to check the final temperature, and I guess that is good advice. I certainly use my thermometer all of the time, especially on fish. Just not on steak. I think the touch method works just as well, and you get the opportunity to lick your fingers or burn yourself!

7. Plating.
Sure. Why not. Warm the plate. I usually put it next to the grill so it is warmed by the copious quantities of ambient heat, but hot water or a warm oven or a bunch of other ways will work just as well.

I think most people who take steak seriously do all of these things as a matter of course, but if you are just starting out on the road to steak perfection (it is a long road, you'll never get there, but the ride is great!), this advice is a good place to begin.

noknead22.jpg

That's the first loaf from a batch of dough made from a no-knead recipe sent to me by Shiv-Master Bluebell. It was really, really easy, and turned out a very nice loaf. Is it fantastic? No, but a fresh-baked loaf of bread is, sort of by definition, quite good eating, especially with butter.

Next time I'll goose it a bit with some sourdough starter, but it is a solid recipe all on its own. And weird too. I am accustomed (as many of you are) to fairly complex bread recipes, with multiple folding and kneading sessions and timing according to the phases of the moon and the ambient temperature divided by your astrological sign times your mom's birth date.

So it was a real pleasure not doing much of anything and still getting a pretty good result.

******

Last night I served dinner for five. Roast chicken, pork ribs, ratatouille, salad, fresh-baked chocolate-chip cookies. Two big eaters, two normal eaters and a child (so pretty typical for many people), and there were leftovers.

Doing a quick accounting yields a total cost of about $40, and that includes a fancy chicken from a local poultry farm. To be fair, that is balanced by the ridiculously inexpensive but excellent quality pork ribs from Costco.

What's the point? Well, I think most people can cook frugally with just a bit of planning. It's not that tough, and it doesn't mean that one has to eat boring crap.

The Smart Cook: Cheap Recipes, Strategies For Affordable Eating, And More.
Some of these recipes are really nice, especially the first one, but I am an absolute sucker for Chicken Picatta. Or flip-flop Picatta.

Remember that chickpea and chorizo dish I linked to? The one that made me suspicious of hard cider as the liquid? Well, a braver Moronette than I gave it a shot, and:
I made it with cider and chickpeas I soaked and pressure cooked. It was delicious and most ingredients are in the pantry. I will make again. I really enjoy the Food Thread. I bought a Sous Vide (Joule).

Covid19 lockdown is a good time for cooking.

Hah! My work is done! I have a convert.

The Joule she mentions is by all accounts a fine piece of equipment, but the one drawback, at least for me, is that it is controlled only through an app. There is no way to run it on the machine itself, unlike the Anova, the one I have.

The note was signed with a name that may or may not be her nic, so in the interests of privacy I will refer to her only as "Reader with fine taste in blogs and cooking technique."

Looks great huh? But look closer. Have I taught you nothing? Frenching bones is a crime against all that is good about cooking and eating. I mean really! It's even named after France. Yuck.

Commenter Mr. Bingley should know better. Although he did redeem himself by serving them (I assume he grilled them) with a red wine reduction/Dijon dipping sauce.

******

Alton Brown. I love the guy. And he likes guns, so that is a big thumb's up. But sometimes he gets so damned fussy that he makes a simple food far too busy and multi-stepped to take seriously. Lacquer Bacon sounds really good, but dude, how many extra steps do you need to coat bacon with sugar and pepper?

I'll still make it though.

I'm not even a fan of cherries, but their season is approaching, and this looks really good. Too bad they speak European kickball units, but with the internet even that's manageable. Traditional vanilla cherry ripple ice cream.

14 I start my steak in a cast iron skillet for searing and finish in the oven. Always perfect. I've been experimenting with what to do with the scrapings in the pan for a quick sauce. I'm zeroing on a good sauce from deglazing with wine, adding some butter and a very small bit of dijon mustard. I've tried balsamic vinegar instead of the wine but it's too acidic for me. Even the aged stuff.

30 I like a good catsup with my steak.

Sometimes Heinz 57. Or A-1. I even use HP sauce once in awhile to keep it balanced.

A side of steak fries and a caesar salad.

But first a martini. One olive only please.

Posted by: Hairyback Guy at May 31, 2020 04:14 PM (Z+IKu)

31 Yes, let the meat come up to "room temperature" before cooking. I usually allow 2 hours for this. Yes, salt the meat. I coat each side of my steaks with kosher salt when I set them out to come up to temperature. By the time they are ready, the salt has all been absorbed and there is good protein on the outside of the steak, which will give a nice crunchy exterior. If I am cooking inside in an iron skillet, I will add a nice bit of Pasilla Negra, or Ancho chili powder when I add the kosher salt. The salt will draw the rich, chilie goodness into the meat with it. On "grass fed" beef, this is outstanding!

32 Sourdough is actually pretty easy: the thing is you need to feed your started twice a day for it to be healthy so you pretty much need to be making something twice a day or you're dumping starter down the drain.

Ultimately you just need to mix water, starter, and flour until its worked enough, set it in a bread pan to rise, then bake it. I actually start without all the flour, for a very wet mix, and use the dough hook in a mixer to knead it, adding flour until its the right consistency. (My hands tend to weld themselves to dough so hand kneading mostly ends in bread mittens...)

When it doesn't work go through these troubleshooting steps to figure out what you need to change: https://www.sourdoughhome.com/breadmaking-troubleshooting-tips/

Eventually, you'll get the balance right, and you'll know what works for your kitchen and oven. It's really just a matter of practice and trial and error.

46 I have vacillated between medium rare and medium. The problem is, most restaurants cannot get a medium that is not absolutely rare at the bone. The best are the ones who have medium well on the outside to rare on the inside- taste the rainbow!

Medium seems easier for them to handle and get more uniform, at least.

50 My pan seared steak:

Well seasoned cast iron skillet.

I usually use NY Strip. And strangely enough one is usually enough for Scottish Kate and Myself.

Yeah, yeah, temper and season. Sea salt AND fresh ground black pepper. (sticks out tongue)

Pre-heat oven (if your not baking potatoes)

Pre-heat the pan for 5 mins.

Spray w/ non-stick Pam. Then add generous pat of butter. Throw in the steak. DON'T TOUCH IT for 4 - 5 mins. Lift up the steak, turn, throw in another pat of butter, put in pan. DON'T TOUCH IT for another 4-5 mins.

Place skillet in oven for 7 minutes.

Let rest for however long you want, drizzle pan drippings over the steak.

MANJA!!!!

60 1. Amazingribs.com calls it a myth but I can't tell either way.

2. Pepper; YES! Pepper after flipping.

4. Heston's 30 sec flipping method must irritate you.

5. Eh, depends on the thickness. Thin cuts don't really need a rest.

6. Wait, temp it after resting? - The touch method really is the ultimate way. Especially if you're trying out different methods; fresh pan sear vs. frozen pan sear and oven finish, grilling on a new grill, charcoal vs. gas, etc.

7. Generally this is best. The only odd variation would be to try the flash sear* method when you want to preserve a super crusty steak: cook the steak as usual until 5 - 7F degrees below the normal temp at which you remove from heat, rest on a wire rack on a roasting pan, heat up a small pan of clarified butter just below the smoking point, put on safety glasses and at the end of the rest gently pour the hot oil over the steak on the rack, avoiding splashes. Serve immediately.

* I heard of this on some cooking show but I can't find any reference to it so there may be another name for it.

72 63 We did a tour of a new place here about to open. They have a high-heat oven for their steaks (1,000 degrees!!) that has to be water-cooled.

They tested a 32 oz. ribeye and it was perfectly cooked in under five minutes.

Can't wait to try it.
Posted by: Jane D'oh at May 31, 2020 04:25 PM (ptqGC)

Oooo, I wonder if that is what Cattleman's does? Only place I have ever had a 2lb steak perfectly cooked all the way through how you ordered it.

If only they were not 1700 miles away.

Posted by: Aetius451AD at May 31, 2020 04:28 PM (A5zUN)

73 Lately, our Costco has had some very nice Prime Ribeyes roughly 1.5-2 inches thick.

One steak easily feeds two people, so you don't have to go hogwild price-wise to get an excellent chunk of meat for about the same price as two thinner Choice steaks.

A-a-a-a-anyway, when you have a nice steak this thick, you gotta go for the reverse sear.

It's fun and easy, and delicious.

Here's how:

1) Get one of those little garlic squishers to squish some garlic and apply that two both sides of the steak.

Then salt and pepper with a heavy hand.

(Sidenote: Poor CBD! Wrong about so many things. Like shaking Manhattans and pepper on steaks. It..
it's heartbreaking. *sheds single tear*)

If you have a wood pellet grill, this next part is easy.

Set your grill to 250*F and let your steak smoke and cook for about 20--25 min. Indirect heat.

Then take your steak off the grill and crank that baby up to 400-600*F.

And sear your steak for roughly 2 min each side.

That should give you a perfect medium rare steak.

Let it rest.

Then eat!!!

That just might be the best steak you'll ever eat.

77 Sourdough is actually pretty easy: the thing is you need to feed your
started twice a day for it to be healthy so you pretty much need to be
making something twice a day or you're dumping starter down the drain.

85 Voyager put the starter in the frig and you can bake once a week. The week end bakery.com has a great starter recipe. We've been using a rye starter because in theory it's easier to maintain and it's been a snap. Also can feed white flour and switch over. Delicious too. After you get the starter going you can feed once a week (when baking).

90 Last night, we made Millionaire Cocktails.

This is a great classic and easy to make:

Millionaire Cocktail

1.5 oz Jamaican Rum*

.75 oz Sloe Gin**

.75 oz Apricot Liqueur

.75 oz fresh lime juice

Shake with ice. Strain. Drink!

Thoroughly delightful cocktail, everyone loves this one.

Give it a whirl.


*Has to be a Jamaican rum with plenty of hogo (funk) to get the best results.

Try Smith and Cross. It's the easiest to find and probably the best.

Myer's Rum doesn't count for this drink. It's too syrupy and sweet and no hogo. Makes an awful Millionaire.

**Try to use a good sloe gin like Hayman's or Plymouth. Makes a YUGE difference.

97 Lately I've preferred straightforward flavors instead of complicated recipes. Don't know why. Maybe increasing age? Maybe I'm just weird? So many possibilities.

Anyway, I've been enjoying a breakfast of poached eggs on buttered toast, and slices of avocado on the side with a squeeze of fresh lemon. A bit of salt and fresh cracked pepper. A bowl of Greek yougurt with mass quantities of blueberries to finish. Delish! Fresh perked coffee, of course.

Mrs. JTB tells me the eggs and avocado thing is popular with hipsters. I'll have to take her word for it. I don't know any hipsters and I'm usually a decade or more behind fashionable trends. One of the advatages of age and not giving a damn.

The poke method is too unreliable. A steak can turn from medium rare to overdone in a mater of seconds. I generally sear first, as well.. reverse sear doesn't seem to make a difference and there is again the danger of overcooking.

Agree with earlier moron, this year's cherries are plentiful and good. Price wars have already begun.

The California cherries are in the stores here at less than $3 a pound. With that setting the market, the Wenatchee cherries that are three or four weeks later, and even bigger and juicier, are right behind them.

Good sweet cherries are just like beer, it shows us that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

But check out their website - artisanbreadinfive.com. Warning: you will be entering a rabbit hole of endless depth.

Seasoned with pepper, lemon olive oil and a bit of grapefruite white balsamic.
Absolutely perfect--no overcooking and not tough.

We had them on salad. One of my go to ways to use up a bunch of leftover fruit and veggies--peaches, baby tomatoes, bits of asparagus, carrots a whiff of almonds.

So called "complex" salads and pastas are a great way to keep the food budget reasonable b/c they are ideal ways to use leftovers.

Also find that the steam oven (not cheap) is divine for restaurant leftovers.

159 Jane d'oh and others,
Kidney stones are the absolute pits. I had to cut out spinach b/c of them. If you are prone to them, of course lots of water helps. There is a recipe for olive oil, apple cider vinegar and lemon online that you can take a bit of each day to help prevent them. It tastes vile though.

So I just put a T of apple cider vinegar in my 10 oz water glass about 3-4X week. Works for me. And avoid (sigh) spinach, milk and limit cheese and ice cream (can't totally cut out the latter two foods--too delicious. Esp. Cabequou/Cabecou goat cheese which is close to nirvana

I cooked it overnight, I did the cook it in root beer - didn't have enough to cover meat so added diet cola, some vinegar and a bit of valu-rite vodka as well as the salt, pepper etc. Then I pulled it mid morning and added bottled sauce cut with vinegar and with some red pepper flakes to have a bit of heat to the sauce and back in the crockpot on low. Came out so tasty that I bought another pork shoulder and put in the freezer and I am like "why did I not try this before, cheap, easy and tasty is a great combination"

one alternate for applesauce is to cook down your apples, run it through the food mill to get out the seeds and skins, then mix the applesauce with shredded raw apples 1:1 and can as usual.

199 My experience with kidney stones - I have had two, both intensely painful. First one I went to the hospital, second time I didn't since all the hospital did was to give me a couple tylenol and tell be to drink water and lay down till it passed. Well, I could do that well enough at home, thanks a lot guys.

BUT I researched stones after that, and several studies had linked them to HFCS, at least in some people. For me, that meant carbonated beverages, mainly, so I cut those out. I had been drinking too many anyway. I will still have one every once in a while, but I avoid them mostly, as ell as anything with HFCS in it. I haven't had another stone in 20 years.

When I was at the Fred Meyer yesterday and bought those NY strip steaks, most packages of steaks were all red, and no specks or ripples of fat. They were marked "choice", but no way were those steaks choice.

The package I picked up was unusually heavy with those ripples throughout the steaks.

I bought them less than an hour before the store closed for the evening. Many had picked over that package and bought another one, with bright red meat and no white specks.

And I am so glad nobody knows what to look for in a good steak when they buy them.

228 I start my steak in a cast iron skillet for searing and finish in the oven. Always perfect. I've been experimenting with what to do with the scrapings in the pan for a quick sauce. I'm zeroing on a good sauce from deglazing with wine, adding some butter and a very small bit of dijon mustard. I've tried balsamic vinegar instead of the wine but it's too acidic for me. Even the aged stuff.

Posted by: banana Dream at May 31, 2020 04:08 PM (l6b3d)


I have to say, I've gotten really minimal simple with steak. With the hot pan and the pan drippings, while the steak is resting, I toss some thick-sliced button mushrooms. After a minute or two, on the plate with the steak they go. I use a squeeze of fresh lemon on each bite of steak instead of sauces. Minimal. Just salt AND pepper before cooking. That's it. Served bloody rare.

Yep, I am wondering if this is all to galvanize the Black community to stay with the Democrat Party in November. Send a message to those thinking about leaving the Party and remind the community that they need to stay united against their common enemy... police officers.

I did some research this week and found that the Black vote has been increasing for the Republican Party in both the 2012 and 2016 elections. And with President Trump's policies helping the Black community even more over the past 3 years, the Left probably feared that trend would continue.

Cook 4-5 hours. Serve with Greek Salad and fresh bread.

274 I try to keep things to one pan - but need two for steak. I take steaks out of fridge, salt - put it back in fridge. Various vegt, seasoning, and oil into a large cast iron skillet, and roast for a while. A little broil time, then I transfer them to a cassarole dish (pot 2, over the oven vent). I have the hot skillet over hi flame and sear steaks. If Im doing a lot - I have a plate handy. After searing them all, I pile them all back into the skillet into the still hot oven for a short while. Bread, etc can go in oven too.

Then the whole skillet goes to the table, with the cassole dish of vegt. I routinely do 8 steaks this way - 2 packs of the 'petite sirloins' from grocery store. You can make some with different levels of doness for kids

278 I don't think the riots and "protests" will spark a COVID spike.
The virus is progressing as per all virus trajectories. Recoveries up quite a bit, and the % of positive (of all tests) continues to drop, now below 11% nationwide.
From all the research I've seen, looks like the virus started before October in China (Oct cases confirmed by Chinese folks on the ground). WSJ had a story Thurs/Fri about people with the Wuhan flu in Nov-Jan (most testing positive for antibodies).
Bottom line, by the time of shutdowns the horse was well out of the barn--here and in Europe. Differential in deaths and infections due to temperature, density, % of shared air/mass transit etc and of course the criminal way nursing homes were handled. That means you, Cuomo, Wolf, Whitmer, Northam

283 A "spike" in C-19 would be sort of a miracle. Unless this is unlike any other virus of its general type ever seen, it will continue to follow the path it's been on since the beginning. We're well down into the tail now. Resistance and immunity clearly are complex, not simply a question of prior infection/exposure - enough data to show that now.

In any case, a "spike" of mostly asymptomatic flu, dangerous to a tiny % of the populace, is important ..... why?

And almost none of this was known 2 months ago - some was reasonably surmised, but a few key things simply not known. Known, or known to a level needed for practical judgement calls, now.

i've never pre-salted steaks, given my experience with BBQ rubs that have salt in them, because, even though i like salty food, everything came out too salty for me, which meant it tasted horrible to people who DON'T like salt.

however, i have permission to try it on the next piece of their cow we eat, and, because i cook the meat with indirect heat, burning the pepper won't be an issue.

had burgers last night from their specialty blend, which is Chuck/Brisket/Short Rib Blend

their catalog is at the order on line tab of the home page CBD linked to. wear a bib if you visit it.

Popping in for a prayer request



My friend David, who is a retired pastor, is in the hospital in the
emergency room. I saw him yesterday. He seemed kind of frail and had
seen the Dr, about dehydration a couple of days before that . He attends
the church I serve, so I guess that technically means I'm his pastor.
Nobody can visit-not even his daughters whose phone numbers I don't have
and they won't tell me anything other than to say he's in the
emergency room since I'm not family.

The Minneapolis-based company stated "We are heartbroken by the death of George Floyd and the pain it is causing our community. At this time, we have made the decision to close a number of our stores until further notice. Our focus will remain on our team members' safety and helping our community heal."

333 Yes the NFL appears serious about taking away the title for most idiotic racist sports organization from the pathetic NBA.

But as I noted yesterday, the NBA still has one unique angle the NFL lacks - despicable, open support for a genocidal foreign despotism that also is the chief enemy of the US at the moment. Goodell's gonna have to figure out a way to match that loathsome aspect of the NBA's degradation.

And I have not seen a single news broadcast that reported that Supreme Court Chief Justice Joan Roberts sided with the Leftists and declared the First Amendment null and void.

This was the suit to keep American citizens from congregating in their churches for religious purposes.

Americans have no right to assemble, and no right of religious freedom, according to Justice Joan. Because, FAKE SCIENCE! and Blue Guvnors have absolute power to declare anything as long as they wish.

And the 4 Leftists agreed with him.

356 somewhere around here i have a modified James Beard recipe for a butter spread to put your steak on it's last bit of cooking.

off the top of my head it is butter, blue cheese, dry mustard, (garlic?) and Lee and Perrins.

melt together, mix well, then refrigerate. remove to warm up when you temper the steak, so it is soft by the time you need to apply it.

flip the steak, apply the butter. it should melt/spread out by the time the meat is ready to go on the plate.

tried to find the original on line, no joy, but i did find a similar one that had horseradish as an ingredient... that will have to be tried.

The looters were apparently peaceful protesters, just a few minutes ago.

Now, in just the last couple of minutes, squads of looters are in a dead run to cross the parking lot and get into the store, before all the good stuff is gone.

Looks like that decision to close 170 Targets was a waste of executive decision time.

Oh, and the local curfew will be going into effect in about 1 minute.

not sure it'll get sporty here, but there are shops across the street, and restaurants, a weed dispensary, etc. and if they can loot Rodeo Drive, they can loot anywhere.

of course, our local population make up is different here than the Fiarfax area where everything started yesterday, so we have that going for us...

And I suppose we'll be seeing in the coming weeks/months, but there must have been some reason the DA in Mpls was tossing out caution signals about murder charges, and referring to "other evidence". If the medical examiner's initial report isn't changed, I wonder if that torpedoes even murder3? Not a criminal law guy here.

414 Lets see. Breakdown of the rule of law.

It starts with selective enforcement of laws (exhibit 1, Illegal Immigrants, exhibit 2 difference in how the Proud Boys were treated vice the Antifa perps).

Continues with Politicians expressly supporting illegal activity (sanctuary cities).

Furthered by a High Level politician, committing crimes for which a normal citizen would go to jail, but they are given a pass (Hilary Clinton)

Add in a blatantly illegal attempt to overthrow the President of the United States, and after 3 years, no one has been legally punished.

Throw on, everyone from mayors, to Governors making unconstitutional orders, stripping us of our civil rights, because of a bad case of flu.

Then the Supreme Court, the defenders OF our Rights, sides with the ones taking our Rights.

Then, a riot breaks out, and the cops let them riot and loot, at the order of Mayors and Governors.

Thus, after this long train of legal abuses, others join in and THEIR looting and burning is not opposed.

We are watching the real time results, of the breakdown of the rule of law.

If it continues, the people will take matters into their own hands.

416 356 somewhere around here i have a modified James Beard recipe for a butter spread to put your steak on it's last bit of cooking.

off the top of my head it is butter, blue cheese, dry mustard, (garlic?) and Lee and Perrins.

melt together, mix well, then refrigerate. remove to warm up when you temper the steak, so it is soft by the time you need to apply it.

flip the steak, apply the butter. it should melt/spread out by the time the meat is ready to go on the plate.

tried to find the original on line, no joy, but i did find a similar one that had horseradish as an ingredient... that will have to be tried.

Had a corn on the cob supplier back in CT when we lived there. John Harvey grew the absolute best sweet corn I have ever had in my life bar none. 50 cents an ear and he went to $1.00 an ear the year before we left in 2012.

You could literally eat that stuff uncooked straight off the cob and it was sweet and tender. He only grew 10 acres of it and it was first come first served and he always ran out with eople complaining why he didn't grow more.

432 Late. But...heat the plate??. Let it sit for a few minutes?? Well, I guess by the time I've put the steak on the plate and dished out the sides, five minutes has gone by. What's a meat thermometer? j/k. I use one in the oven for turkey and standing rib roast. But on the grill, I just use the...looks good to me. About 6 minutes on a side, then flip it back for a minute, turn it over for another minute and its good to go. Nice medium rare.

And the meat and the sides heat the plate so putting plates in the oven seems a little superfluous to me.

Here is the thing, Target can be as progressive and "down with the struggle" as they want but none of the losses they are suffering due to looting are covered by insurance. Target will set up rainbow clothing stands that offend conservative shoppers and they will outrage us by allowing men in the women's bathroom, but they cannot afford losses like that.

It's like that friend that swears to you that pit bulls are a gentle breed getting mauled by their dog when they try to take the food dish away.

People created this society of moral relativists, they funded liberal colleges and schools, they fed and propagated non-contributing underclasses, they imported ethnic groups with no sense of American history or any cultural connection to the country, and then they pretend to be shocked when the obvious repercussions which are easily foreseeable and were, in fact, promoted come home to roost.

If my theory is right none of the rioteers are going to get Covid-19

Posted by: Skip at May 31, 2020 05:49 PM

The left has a big catch-22 right now, don't they?

On the one hand, if this were people protesting the stay-at-home orders, we all know that the #1 story tomorrow would be the "outbreak of COVID-19 cases across the country due to the selfish and irresponsible actions of protesters" and the need for further lockdown.

On the other hand, the people protesting are a group that the left has no ability to scold. But if they do not scold anyone and do not blame them for outbreaks of COVID-19 cases, then the whole scam is over to anyone paying attention.

They will likely choose to switch scams from COVID-19 to the race war for as long as that will stay in the news. And it will, thanks to statements being made every day for weeks by politicians, celebrities and athletes.

Then, come OCT, they could bring back another lockdown if they want as their OCT surprise due to "second wave", even though it's just the normal flu season.

You know the Left has this all planned and war-gamed out what they are going to do from now through the NOV election. (And beyond, if President Trump wins re-election).

If there were a reason behind Floyd's murder, other than just one more bad cop on a power trip, I would assume bad blood because from working together rather than racism.


I would not be at all shocked to later find out that Floyd was passively resisting getting into the cop car because he knew he was dead if they got him alone.

472 387 Squirrels! My black cat killed them for sport. Once came home to 7 squirrel tails lined up neatly on the patio for my edification and praise!

He was a killer to raccoons, possums, squirrels and interestingly rarely birds. Taught our terrier how to kill raccoons and possums, and then died in his sleep two days later.

Best cat I ever had. Loved kids, hated invader critters.

Hah!

Mrs IMG: "Something smells *funny* in the laundry room." (that has a cat door)

IMG: "What do you mean by 'funny'?"

Mrs IMG: "Something dead and putrefying." (She's a nurse, of course)

*rooting around for an hour, as there are many shelves and nooks, crannies, etc*

IMG: "Hey, I bet this is it!"

*holds up a rather soupy squirrel carcass sequestered behind the powder room toilet*

IMG: "I blame Mango."

Mango was a Rescue Cat Mrs IMG got. Spent over 2 good handguns worth on his teeth and other vet bills. And he was murder on moles. Turned her Dad from a cat hater into a cat lover. He used to sit and watch him hunt the yards. He's gone now.

476 Excitement in River City. Daughter took wife for Sno-Cone and on way home they went by our local protest in town at our city park. Saw a protestor beating on a car and get "run over"/knocked down by the car. Daughter called 911 and said it's getting dicey and that protestors are in the street and beating cars.

Haven't seen wife this excited in a while. I asked wife why she didn't get pic and she said she was busy getting the wasp spray out from under seat to protect themselves.

It's Hell. Had a colleague whose kid was murdered along with two others on a robbery and due to the police mishandling/politics in DC it became a big deal. For years after that, whenever that mayor and police chief's mismanagement came up in the news, or any updates on the case (it took 3 years to find and arrest who did it), they would roll the video of the bodies being wheeled out (not just on the news, but during the teaser bits hours before broadcast). My colleague had friends and family who would call and tell her: don't watch tv tonight.

Its like a gut punch these people have to face - they never know when the image of their loved one's body, or in the Floyd family's case, his last moments of life are going to appear on screen. It is awful.

So, oiled a big pyrex casserole with olive oil, then dumped in a can of diced tomatoes, a can of sloppy-Joe sauce, added a large onion sliced into rings and two small bell peppers, sliced, that and nice neighbor gifted us. Spices to please, and minced garlic.

Skinned the chicken, seasoned with zatarains, then browned on stovetop, placed on top of the fixins, covered with foil, now baking at 350 for an hour. Have switched to red wine in anticipation.

Then, $20? They won't respond to blatant shoplifting for $20. Then, the store directed them directly to Floyd sitting in a car across the street.

Also, Counterfeiting is a Federal crime, enforced by the Secret Service, not beat cops.

Now, if it was an open case, you would think they would call Detectives. They didn't, this was beat cops.

490 So Miami has peaceful protestors that for the last two hrs have been basically going around in circles because the police has not allowed them to get on i95 to block it as they did yesterday, and when they tried to get on the port the police blocked them and gave them 15 mins to disperse. And they did disperse. City of Miami has curfew at 8pm. Miami Dade County has curfew at 9pm. The mayor of the city of Miami during a recent radio interview made it clear that they had informants on the streets and they knew that some of the protestors were equipped with instruments to cause destruction and vandalism. The governor has mobilized the national guard and stationed them in Miramar, near Tampa, and several more locations. I think the national guards numbers must be three to four times larger though.

Guess Mango and our black kitteh are up in Critter Heaven policing the critters.

Our cat had an incredibly strong constitution. He once had a huge deep (about1" deep 4" long) tear on his side from raccoon fight (which cat won of course). Vet wanted us to put him in a cast. We knew the cat would chew through it--alternative was a shot in the tear. Darn thing was totally healed in 3 days--not visible at all. Probably should have blood banked some of his antibodies...

Home Run Inn Pizza > All the other frozen crappy pizzas

Posted by: Hairyback Guy at May 31, 2020 05:49 PM

Grew up near Home Run Inn Pizza place on Archer Ave, south side of Chicago. Awesome thin-crust pizza. Usually just ordered carry-out, but their restaurant for dine-in had a pretty great setup.

Granted, that was 30 years ago. Not sure how they are now. I've never tried their frozen pizzas.

When I go back to Chicago to visit family, though, I always order Palermo's on 63rd (off Pulaski Ave). My favorite thin crust pizza. Sweet sauce makes all the difference.

For frozen pizza, I have been ordering Heggie's Pizza out of Milaca, Minnesota through Goldbelly. Better than any other frozen pizza I have tried. And tastes a lot like the Chicago thin-crust I grew up on.

They were hit first night of looting without much damage, but second night after being boarded up, they were hit again, and from what I could see through the windows, looters entered through the bakery, and started their mayhem by throwing bags of flour all over the place. It looked like a cartoon with white floors and visible footsteps. I'm guessing there was more damage deeper in the store though.

We've had a steady rotation of National Guard helicopters overheard last 48 hours with multiple choppers before sundown and throughout the night. Last night, they closed several major "spoke" highways within the main suburban ring roads at 7pm, an hour before 8pm curfew, and I think that made a big difference in terms of crosstown looting.

And there's more block level neighborhood watch organization taking place. I went out and walked my area before sunrise, and bumped into a couple of former guardsmen and gun instructors doing private security for a couple of businesses and apartment buildings on the other side of the main retail area. They weren't shy about showing their AR-15s. During our chat, Park Police drove by, asked for updates, and gave thumbs up as they rolled away.

My building manager, me, and some neighbors have been making a point of sitting in our parking lot, and staring down cars that pass by here after curfew. Still a fair number of ghetto ride cars that are cruising the area. Some just for giggles and others obviously looking for looting opportunities.

I'm optimistic the worst is over for now, but I worry about the arrested officer posting his bail, and causing a flare up of property damage crimes. He might be better off from a personal safety standpoint by remaining in jail for the time being, and so would our city.

@410: "And I suppose we'll be seeing in the coming weeks/months, but there must have been some reason the DA in Mpls was tossing out caution signals about murder charges, and referring to 'other evidence'."

The third degree charge hinges on whether or not the knee-to-neck restraint was unsanctioned, formally discouraged, forbidden, etc., and the officer could have foreseen potential fatal trauma. It's not a slam dunk by any stretch of imagination. There's a "code red" vibe to the whole situation.

Worse, the officer and victim worked security together at a local bar, and the officer had been working there for 16 years, so likely unofficial head of security. No one knows the full story yet, but I suspect the DA is worried there's another shoe to drop there. Coroner's report about the victims prior health is problematic for prosecution too. Theoretically, officer could not have known about the victim's preconditions, but then again, they worked together, so it could be argued he might have known.

My thought too. They were scaring him so he would shut up, but with his health issues, went too far.

Posted by: Romeo13 at May 31, 2020 06:32 PM

This is my thought too. Not necessarily a hit, but I just don't think this was deliberate murder. They seemed to know Floyd from having worked with him in the past for security. That may be why they were worried about excited delirium with him. It is supposedly why they were keeping him on his stomach instead of on his side.

What I cannot figure out from the analyses I have read thus far is why they didn't just work to get him in the patrol car. From one of the analyses I read, they apparently almost had him in the car, but then stopped, pulled him out and put him on the ground. And it's then that the video started rolling on the rest of the arrest.

I do not know anything about excited delirium, but I'm wondering why it would have been better to have him on the ground in that state rather than just thrown him in the patrol car.

Prior to when the video started, Floyd was apparently resisting arrest and throwing himself on the ground to make it difficult for officers to restrain him. I'm wondering if maybe they thought he was going to start throwing himself all around inside the patrol car and thought it better to keep him restrained on the ground instead.

I dunno. I think there will likely be more to come out about the situation.

Of course, not sure it will matter to anyone outside of a courtroom, since he has already been convicted of murder in the court of public opinion.

551 Chunk, that's outrageous and ho-hum at the same time.

First night of festivities in Mpls, there was video of an "aid station" for rioters - resembled a station for a marathon or bicycle century - bottled water, etc, with a solicitous young woman saying "we have whatever you need".

Now I suppose it was initially set up to support an actual protest - though I'm not clear there ever was an organized, permitted march in Mpls that night.

But one's blood boils, while one's assessments harden.

563 Local cops declared the protesters an "illegal gathering" and shut them down in a hurry.

As far as I know, the only laws that were broken were the protesters deciding to walk down the middle of the street. However, the street protesting didn't last, because a good ole boy made sure the protesters decided the sidewalks were much safer. He drove through them twice as they were walking down the street.

568 @488: "We're missing parts of the story."

Yes, we most certainly are. It stinks.

Minneapolis, like other progressive big cities, has been easing off strict enforcement of misdemeanors. For example, if you break into an office or apartment building, then you will be given a no trespassing order on first offense, and you won't be arrested for breaking and entering until a second offense against the same property. Or you'd have to do a whole bunch of interior property damage on the first offense; not just bust through a door or window, but ransack the place.

Easing of misdemeanor enforcement accelerated during the pandemic 'cause they cleared jails of most non-violent offenders, and police have been told to avoid any unnecessary arrests for the time being.

The second was from Thanksgiving dressing left too long in the fridge. I was ignominiously carted form my sons house on a liter to the ambulance. Low blood pressure swoon. Embarrassing, especially since I made the dressing. I've never puked for 6 straight hours before.

That's a pretty worrisome result to come out of this situation as well. So much for anyone left in this country being for the rule of law and the justice system.

My brother told me the same thing when I asked him about the knee on the neck issue.

He said even someone in perfect health could end up suffocating if the knee is held in the right manner to constrict breathing.

But yeah, you wonder if the officer knew this was a risk of his action. He seemed to be discussing excited delirium though, so he was apparently knowledgeable about certain health conditions at risk.

But if my brother, a 3 year veteran of the police force, knows that a knee on the neck is a risk, certainly have to think Chauvin had to know as well. I guess we'll find out more as the investigation proceeds.

601 Clyde,
Mostly agree with you.

BUT, eyes don't lie. LE needs to be better trained than to kneel on someone's neck for multiple minutes (I think . Bongino and Guiliani, neither of whom harbor any SJW ideas, have condemned this.

There may be a backstory between the two men. And I totally oppose the looting, riots and propaganda. That said, from the start, this was qualitatively different than the Michael Brown/Ferguson story, albeit the process of publicizing the story and inflaming public opinion is as bad or worse.

It is important to stand for morality in these highly amoral times. And yes, for rule of law and Chauvin should have his day in court.

In California, Defense of Property is NOT a viable defense for assault.



Found this out 30 years ago when I caught a guy INSIDE my car in San
Diego. He ran and I pushed him into a car, so he would drop my stereo.



Cops knew who he was, but the Detective told me that because I touched him, I'd end up in Jail, while he would walk.

I told him he was best to move the trash can away from the house and let it burn if set on fire, because trying to put out fire is risking being illuminated and becoming a target.

Sure, but then you're arguing semantics in court, and getting lost in the weeds as jurors eyes glaze over from contradicting testimony. It's just not so clear cut and dry that a good prosecutor would be supremely confident in early press conferences about the case.

From another video I saw, Floyd was sitting in the drivers seat of his car, passenger had passenger door open.

2 Cops approached (neither Chauvin), talked to them for a second, then handcuffed both of them.

Set Floyd down on the sidewalk against a wall. UNCUFFED the other guy (weird), then they two officers took Floyd across the street, where they tried to put him in a car, that's when he started to resist, and the Video most people have seen, starts.

My take is that I do not like this trend of convicting people in the court of public opinion. I don't think anyone should want that. Because while today it's this officer, tomorrow it's a woman walking her dog in a park and losing her job the next day because the person she yelled at took video of her and posted it and made it go viral. Or a woman on a plane posting a Tweet, who then landed to find out her statement went viral.

No one should want the continuation of the direction our culture seems to be going where people can lose their livelihoods over social media mobbing or court of public opinion mobbing.

Are we a nation of laws and a nation of 'innocent until proven guilty in a court of law' or are we now in favor of a nation of conviction in the court of public opinion based on viral videos?

My only point of contention is assuming this is a "law enforcement" issue or a "police" issue, instead of a "Officer Chauvin" issue.

I am disgusted with the broad brush being used in this case to smear all police officers. Why do people just automatically assume that this is a policy of training of police officers in general?

Talking to my brother, he told me that the leg on the neck thing would not have happened in Chicago, because they are not trained to do that.

I'm not even sure if Minneapolis police are trained to do this either. So it is likely a case of either a bad officer or an officer who lost his senses in this arrest and went overboard.

Either way, we don't condemn hundreds of thousands of people in a certain group base on the actions of a few.

That is yet another disgusting thing that has come out of this terrible incident.

If police were normally subject to the law you might be right in your take. They are not, though. I have a personal example of this but let's stick with a very public one: Drew Peterson. This man stalked and assaulted several wives, had officers under his command stalking several of his wives and murdered three wives before he was ever held to any accounts for his actions. His story is extreme only in that he murdered three times.

In situations with cops, they will not be held to account for their actions unless there is public outcry when they very publicly break the law.

- Take the meat out of the packaging in advance. Pat it dry with a paper towel, then apply your seasoning of choice (I personally like Goya "Adobo Seasoning with Cumin"). Coat the meat generously, making sure to cover the sides, too. Then, return it to the refrigerator for a couple of hours or so.

-Preheat your skillet. I seem to get the best results at about a 7 on my stove's dial. 6 doesn't seem hot enough to sear it properly, and 8 seems too hot; it'll burn my oil and just absolutely fill my little and not-too-well-ventilated condo with smoke. The steak does turn out better at an 8 (pretty much like it was grilled!), but, ugh, so much smoke...

-Put down a little oil and drop your pre-seasoned steak in the pan. Flip it about every thirty seconds or so. This will heat it more or less evenly all the way through.

-For side dishes, frozen vegetables cooked in the microwave are great. You finish cooking your steak, then put it on the plate to rest. Then you start nuking a pack of vegetables, which takes anywhere from four to six minutes depending on the size of the package and your microwave's wattage. Just enough time for your steak to rest properly before you start cutting into it!

Some techniques I haven't liked...

-Dry-brining. It's similar to the pre-seasoning technique that I do like, but I think 24 hours is way too long to let a steak sit uncovered in your refrigerator. At just four to six hours you can really see your steak starting to dry out; I'm not about to try letting it have an additional eighteen to twenty hours to turn completely into jerky before I cook it.

-Oiling your steak before seasoning it. I just tried this today. It put a really nice crust on my steak, but that crust formed too quickly and made it hard for me to tell if my steak had cooked long enough, so I ended up overcooking it a bit. It also seemed to form a barrier that kept my seasoning from penetrating the meat; I ended up with more of my seasoning left behind in the pan than on my steak. I also ended up with a lot of oil on my plate when I was done eating. It was still good, but it would've been better if I hadn't tried this.

-Searing your steak in a pan, and then finishing it in the oven. This also resulted in my steak being a bit overcooked. I feel like I get better results by just finishing my steak on the range burner while it's already there.

These are just some results experienced by a total novice. It's possible that I just did something wrong in using the techniques I didn't like, but I'm happy with the results of using those techniques I did like. And there are plenty of intriguing techniques I haven't tried yet, like sous vide and butter-basting with fresh herbs in the pan.

671 Here's the REAL secret for a perfect steak. Salt it heavily, then put in the fridge 8 - 24 hours. That will draw out the liquid, and drag it back in. Not only will the state be the juiciest you eat, but the salt will be INSIDE the meat.

673 69 The best steak I ever had (probably the best dish ever, period) was at the Walpack Inn in Northwestern NJ. It was a NY strip steak topped with bacon and Stilton cheese. I'm drooling right now just thinking about it. I've tried to recreate it at home several times, and while the results are quite good, it's just not the same.

I grew up in that neck of the woods; we used to go to the Walpack Inn all the time in the 70s...man, their bread was to die for!

The lamb racks come slightly frenched from Costco, I just simply cut through each to make the lollipops in that picture, no further trimming. Marinated for 4 hours in red wine with some cumin, salt, a little pepper and oregano, then they cook in just a few minutes on the grill. CBD's well-meant misgivings not withstanding, they're simply awesome, especially with the red wine reduction/dijon mustard dipping sauce
