Food Thread: Not Much of Anything [CBD]

rotiserrie.jpg

Just got a big grill with a rotisserie, and since I am shameless about food and will cook anything in any way as long as it tastes good, I'll be cooking not a chicken, but a pork roast first. That recipe from last week will do just perfectly.

But....it seems like rotisserie cooking is perfect for foods that improve with basting, and since I can't find chickens with marbled breasts, I'll be using this primarily for birds. Although as I type this, the image of a large leg of lamb...marinated in garlic and Rosemary and turning gently for hours until it is perfectly moist and tender and crispy...floated past my mind's eye.

Thai Basil Watermelon Margarita
Thai Basil Watermelon Margarita.jpg

Here's a perfect summer drink for those of you who want to be a bit adventurous. The suggestion at the link for the addition of chopped jalapeno is a good one. If that sounds too hot, cut the pepper into rings and leave out the seeds.

Flat Iron Steak

Flatiron_steak.jpg

This is a classic bistro dish that is quick and easy to make, doesn't require anything out of the ordinary, and tastes great.

The recipe calls for cognac or brandy, but don't spend a lot. Cheap California brandy is perfect for cooking. And if you don't have brandy, bourbon might work. There are lots of versions of this (it's just a basic cream sauce with mustard) with whiskey.....

Paves du Mail

(Pan-Fried Steaks with Mustard Cream Sauce)

4 8-10 oz. flat iron steaks, cut horizontally without the connective tissue
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 tbsp. canola oil
5 tbsp. cognac or brandy
2 ounces heavy cream
1 1/2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 tbsp. minced flat-leaf parsley

1. Season steaks with salt and pepper. Heat butter and oil in a 12" cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add steaks and cook, turning once, until browned and cooked to desired temperature, about 6 minutes for medium rare. Remove pan from heat. Transfer steaks to 4 warm plates and pour off and discard all but 1 tbsp. fat.

2. Add 4 1/2 tbsp. cognac to pan and stir, scraping browned bits from the bottom with a wooden spoon. Return pan to medium-high heat and cook for 20 seconds. Add cream and mustard, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring vigorously, until sauce just comes together. Stir in remaining cognac and pour sauce over steaks.

Serve steaks garnished with parsley and black pepper.

16 Yum! I love roasted chicken. Next time we need to upgrade our grill, I might pop for a fancier one that has rotisserie built in.

We had bison ribs on Friday and went out to our favorite SLC sushi place last night. I had a margarita-inspired drink (or two!) with jalapeno. Tasty!

Mr Y-not requested burgers today so that's what he's getting, because I'm an awesome wifey. ;-)

Cool! I doubt I'll have that many tomatoes. But I know how to do the refrigerator pickles now, so that'll be what I make with the green ones.

18 I do like beer butt chicken.. however, my wife makes the best chicken gravy from the drippings when roasted in the oven, so it is hard to pass that up. And, throwing a chicken into the oven for an hour and a half is at least as easy as beer butt.

21 What exactly is "Moroccan spiced"?

I made kabobs last week from some thin sliced pork loin chops we had in the freezer.. just slice into strips and marinate.. but I just used soy/lemon juice/worcestershire.. came out really good though!

Posted by: Chi-Town Jerry at July 06, 2014 04:34 PM (b/lt+)

22 Is this the recipe in my nick, garrett?

Would convection work?

What do you think about how it'd do with pheasant? Would it be too dry?

Posted by: Y-not at July 06, 2014 04:35 PM (zDsvJ)

23 Any suggestions for coooking barbeque ribs in a crockpot?

I was thinking dry-rub the ribs, wraps in foil, stick in crock pot. Put bbq sauce all over around 1 hour before eating.

Never done this before though so tell me if that will work.

Posted by: @votermom at July 06, 2014 04:37 PM (GSIDW)

24 I did something similar with the bison ribs, votermom. Dry rubbed, braised (in dark beer, garlic, shallots, and figs), but I finished them off on the grill for a couple of minutes with a dark BBQ sauce. I like some crispy bits.

Posted by: Y-not at July 06, 2014 04:39 PM (zDsvJ)

25 I spatchcocked a chicken for the first time ever just a few days ago. I kept it simple S&P, olive oil, garlic & fresh rosemary.
Much easier than I thought it would be, and it grilled up quite nicely.
I love an oven roasted chicken, but hate using the oven during the summer. I go through a lot of charcoal.

Posted by: shredded & melted chi at July 06, 2014 04:40 PM (2Mt9C)

26 Oddly, it smells like one of my neighbors is roasting chicken, so this is driving me crazy!!! However, it's just lovely to see a thread where nobody is bickering yet, so I had to chime in. Thinking of taking the rest of the afternoon off and hitting the couch with a book, since I don't have any fab food to cook.

Posted by: Peaches at July 06, 2014 04:41 PM (8lmkt)

27 Do you put foil in a crock pot? I don't think I (read: my wife/mother/various hosts) have ever done that. Makes sense, kind of like steaming it in it's own juices?

Posted by: Lincolntf at July 06, 2014 04:43 PM (ZshNr)

28 Do you have a lot of good delivery places, Peaches?

One thing I really miss about living in a real city are the delivery places. We didn't realize how great we had it in Chicago.

31 That is the recipe. Zuni Café Roast Chicken.

I think Pheasant would work, but you'd have to adjust the time to keep from drying it out.

...maybe wrap the whole thing in lardo or bacons?

Posted by: garrett at July 06, 2014 04:45 PM (/MhJQ)

32 Do you put foil in a crock pot?

--

Well, I was looking at this over recipe that recommended wrapping in foil to make it extra tender, but I guess it might be redundant in a crockpot since that's already a sealed container.
On the other hand it would make clean-up easy.

Posted by: @votermom at July 06, 2014 04:46 PM (GSIDW)

33 Lots of delivery available here in El Lay, Y-not, but mostly overpriced and sketchy quality. I have stuff to eat, but am mostly concentrating on the cowboy koolaid at the moment. I've lately been quite enthralled with the spinach-bacon salad from Trader Joe's. Dammit, it's good, but I only bought 2 on Friday and now they're gone. When you live alone, there is little point in making a big mess to clean up, for 5 minutes of stuff-my-face.

35 After years of cooking, I finally got a pork spareribs recipe that works for me.

Rub the ribs down with a commercial rub.
Bake at 225 F for 4 hours. Fire up the grill.
Grill, meat side down for 5 minutes.
Flip, brush a good barbecue sauce on the top and finish for 8-10 minutes.

I am going to make my next rub from scratch. And I have a barbecue sauce recipe from scratch that I make from time to time, as well.

I might try a variation on this with a beef roast later this summer.

Posted by: LochLomondFarms at July 06, 2014 04:47 PM (LL8fA)

36 Yeah... I was going to guess wrapping in bacon, garrett. Yum.

I really do enjoy roasted bird. It's one of the few simple dishes that I'll often get even at a high-end restaurant that offers other more elaborate (harder to make) things. I haven't seen them around here, but at one point we used to have access to capons, which roast up very nicely.

37 If I may go OT for just a quick sec, I just had the absolute pleasure of hitting Chris McDaniel's tip jar for the legal challenge. Not quite as satisfying as a high-class burger, but darn close! yrmv

38 >>When you live alone, there is little point in making a big mess to clean up, for 5 minutes of stuff-my-face.

Oh, I hear ya!

I'm kind of proud of myself that in recent years I will actually cook for myself now when Mr Y-not is off on a trip. It's usually still pretty simple stuff like a steak or fish fillet, but it's better than what I used to do (nothing).

Posted by: Y-not at July 06, 2014 04:49 PM (zDsvJ)

39 McCormick's seasoning company markets a spice mix called "Moroccan Spice Mix". I'm not sure of all that's in it but it tastes like cinnamon and paprika, and a lot of other stuff. I put 1 Tblspn of that, 2 tsp garlic salt, a dash oh siricha sauce, dash of Worcestershire sauce, 2 Tblspns lime juice, 1Tblspn red wine vinegar1 Tblspn honey, into 2/3 cup olive oil. Mix well and marinate meat 6 to 12 hours. Skewer and grill over indirect heat. It was tasty.

48 Speaking of high class burgers, I'm on deck to start grilling some Harris Teeter Meat Dept. hamburgers. Or "steak burgers" as they are billed. No beef shishkebab left, so wife improvised. The star of the show, however, will be the potato salad my m-i-l is making, an effort to re-create the one my mother makes, and that the m-i-l makes just for me and her every time we get together. Very particular specs. Must be red onions, white potatoes, black olives (sliced), no mustard, chilled before declared "ready", other conditions.

51 What sort of quick side dishes do y'all make for weekday dinners and such?

My kids like really basic stuff, my husband is bored with that, and I don't eat much wheat.

Yes, I do know that rules out pretty much everything. But I am happy with meat and veggies and just skip the carbs.

I was thinking about doing a pot of basic rice and then making fried rice with some of it.

Potato dishes are good. The ones we're growing should be ready to dig up any day now. Store bought ones go bad really quickly There is no cool dry place to store them...it's Louisiana.

The kids don't like biscuits that much. Weirdos, I'm telling you. I made popovers and those disappeared quickly.

"Combine dry ingredients and rub over the surface of the ribs. Place ribs in slow cooker or Crock-Pot standing on their edge with the meaty side out. Cook for about 8 hours. Remove ribs from slow cooker and brush with barbecue sauce."

I guess that sounds worth a try - standing the ribs on their edge.

65 Hey yall

We went to the farmer's market after church, and are having a steak and veg feast tonight-green beans with bacon and onions, boiled new potatoes tossed with parsley and olive oil, corn off the cob, sauteed in butter with pepper and sea salt, sliced tomatoes, and grilled tenderloin and chicken. With homemade peach pie for dessert.

23- absolutely cook ribs in the crock pot. You can't really get good dry ribs, since the point of the thing is to cook in slow, wet heat, but if you like wet ribs, you will be very happy.

We do both pork and beef ribs: season the meat, and place on a bed of thick sliced onions. Drizzle with 1/2 to 1 cup of a seasoned broth mixture (beef broth, cumin, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, cayenne to your taste) and leave for 6ish hours. An hour before eating, drain some of the liquid, and then add barbeque sauce of your choice, making sure all the ribs are coated. Cook on low for the last hour and then enjoy.

69 "Hellacious warm potato salad using bacon and grease."


German potato salad. My MIL made some for our 4th BBQ. OMG...I could have dove in the bowl. Soooo good!

I did ribs in our infra red thingy this weekend. Put a rub on them the night before. Cut them in half and did 3 halves at a time. Took the first 3 halves out...put them in a big roasting pan, poured in sweet baby ray's BBQ sauce and some beer. Put that on the grill while the other 3 halves cooked. Put those in the roasting pan...while the pork steaks* cooked on the grill. They were yummmmy!


Pork steaks are a Missouri thing.

It was not at all Mexcan. We just were Mexicans eating it!!

Potatoes, hard boiled eggs, pickles, celery or celery seed and lots of mayo.

Had to take apart and fix my own oven since they no longer make the part and the Sears guy wouldn't do it even tho the Sears lady said yeah he can do it, wait a week, then no, and no handyman type knew what to do so I watched a youtube on an oven fix and one on soldering and then fixed it.

Saved hundreds and an insane wife.

87 Daughter has "not lyme disease" but all the symptoms. But she is
registered for school in the fall, and is determined to let nothing stop
her.

Jeez, Moki, that's terrible and I will keep that darlin' girl in my prayers. Haven't done too much for the last 3 days, got hit with the lazy stick and, for once in my life, decided to just go with it. Which is kinda nice, actually.

Sounds like a version of the one I posted. My problem with leaving the ribs in the crock pot is that they fall apart when you are trying to eat them. Do them the way you suggested, them try them in the oven for a while or the broiler for a few minutes to "tighten" them up a bit. That will also caramelize the sugars in the sauce to good effect.

I like peas, but not in potato salad.

I've started making pea salad, which almost everyone likes. Frozen peas, mayo, cheese (shredded in a bag, usually) and maybe an onion. Lots of variations, good when you're out of fresh stuff and is even better the second day.

114 Mama AJ - Maybe not so quick.. but fairly easy are hobo pack potatoes on the grill.

Thin sliced potatoes, maybe two potatoes per pack. Get a good size sheet of aluminum foil. Layer in sliced potatoes and onions and pats of butter and salt and pepper until it is maybe an inch and a half high. Then fold over the tin foil and then roll the edges until thoroughly sealed.

Throw the packs on the grill - I usually do 2 or 3 packs for me and my wife - and don't turn too often. The perfect side dish for anything grilled - or not! Golden crisp on the edges and soft and steamed in the middle.. wonderful!

............
You really don't need a smoker. I slow cook ribs on the gas grill. Take a roasting pan you use for your grill and put water in it about halfway and set it on your grill. Turn on all the burners until the grill is hot, then turn off all but one - preferably not under the pan.

Put wood chips into a smoker box or heavy duty aluminum foil over the lit burner.

Put your ribs that have had a dry rub applied on a wire rack on top of the pan of water or a rib rack.

Turn your burner down til you get the temp to be a steady 250-300. You can turn the ribs once, but you really don't have to. I baste the ribs with a beer and rub mixture every half hour or so.

If you get enough smoke and your grill doesn't leak too much, you will get a nice smoke ring and your ribs will be perfect after 2.5 hours (or so).

If you like, you can then sauce them directly on the grill especially if you like em crispy.

134 CTM4 = chlorphenaramine 4mg "Chlor-Trimeton" (brand name)

old school antihistamine. usually causes sedation, same same as benadryl, but not with me.

new school antihistamines, such as Claratin et all (loratadine) do NOT actively remove the triggering agent from the mast cells, which is what causes the allergic reactions we suffer, which is why you have to take one every day during allergy season for them to be effective. it is also why they don't always w*rk when you are either highly susceptible to the allergen in question or during heavy pollen conditions.

that's why i take both kinds if i'm having an allergy attack, so that the CTM can clear out the receptors, allowing the loratadine to come in behind it.

of course, having had 3 anaphylactic episodes due to overexposure to cephalasporins, my mast cells are FUBAR anyway...

141 Back from my burger (num, num) and just saw this from Mama:

>>I was thinking about doing a pot of basic rice and then making fried rice with some of it.

When mister needed to bring down his weight, I started using brown rice. I found a great recipe that I make in larger batches in the oven: brown rice "pilaf." But really it's just an onion sauteed in a Dutch oven using whatever (butter or olive oil, I try to use oo), dump in the brown rice, quick sautee, then add water or chicken stock (I usually use chicken stock), and put the whole thing tightly covered in the oven for an hour or two. (I don't remember.)

It's very good - and I say that as someone who usually dislikes the high fiber version of things - and it's versatile. I put it into wrapped sandwiches, for example. Left over herb chicken breast, some of this rice, maybe a dollop of yogurt or low fat sour cream - a sandwich. And it keeps well. It's nice and moist so it reheats very well compared to white rice.

Another thing I do a lot of when the grill is going is a wedge or half of butternut or acorn squash w/ a dollop of margarine or butter and a big sprig of fresh rosemary. Wrap well with foil. Roast.

Posted by: Peaches at July 06, 2014 06:26 PM (8lmkt)

147 Oh, another "starch" side dish that's dead easy is black beans.

Sautee onion and garlic (or you could certainly used the dried stuff) in oil, dump in drained can of black beans and a can of diced tomatoes. I usually buy the kind with diced green chiles in it. Toss in some chopped fresh cilantro (the more the merrier) or if you don't have that use either the cilantro paste from the tubes you can find in the veggie section or dried cilantro. (Or skip it if you don't like it.)

Simmer. The longer the better for taste, but in 15 min will be fine.

-peeled potatos red or white slightly underdone
-white onions chopped fine
-boiled eggs chopped medium
-real mayonaise (Hellmans or Dukes)
-yellow mustard (never anything heinz in our house)
-sweet pickle relish
-lots of black pepper and a little salt
-mix while potatos are still a bit warmish, let cool
-chill in fridge
-dust with paprika
-on your plate you can add a few drops Tabasco
-this is the righteous way, follow it and be blessed.

153 Just finished dinner, which featured grilled sausages. Sausages that Dr. Mrs. T. and I made ourselves! Ground up pork with garlic, salt, and spices (probably too much salt, but it was our first time) and fed it into sausage skins. Hardest part was getting the stuff to go into the skins evenly, and my arm was pretty damned tired from cranking the grinder by the time we finished.

The only slightly complicated part was actually finding the damned casings in the first place. I finally located a local grocery which does in-house sausage, and the butcher counter guy made up a price and sold me some.

Phase II of the project will be to experiment with different fillers: breadcrumbs, rice, maybe vegetables, which we hope will make the filling process easier.

Mama AJ:
Couscous. Simplest thing in the world. It is made of wheat, but kind of like teeny tiny grains of pasta. You may be able to get it in bulk, which is less than the boxes.
Proportions are anywhere from 1.5 cups water to 1 cup couscous, to 2 cups water to 1 cup couscous. Depends on whether you like it dry or sticky.
Add water to a pot. Add a generous tablespoon of butter or olive oil and two teaspoons of spice. Bring water to boil, stir in couscous, turn off the heat and let it sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
I use Penzey's spice blends, whichever one I am in the mood for. This lets you buy plain couscous for half the price of the precious little mixes. Using different blends keeps it from being boring.
1 cup of couscous is good for about 3 moderate servings (about 3/4 each).
