Food Thread: Incisors, Canines And Idiots

Chicken_Breast_Raw.jpg

Say Hello to Finger-Lickiní Lab-Grown Chicken

Fried chicken will never be guilt-free. But you may soon be able to remove at least part of the remorse the next time you chow down -- because it might not have required a single bird to be harmed.

Hey ass-hat! I don't feel guilty when I eat the flesh of animals. I don't feel remorse. I don't feel anything other than happy that I am on the top of the food chain. And of course the pleasure of a good meal.

The explicit assumption that our omnivorous behavior is in some way unseemly, that it is an anachronism in a modern and enlightened society is a dangerous attitude that needs to be slapped down whenever it rears its pointy little idiot head.

Don't you dare try to make me feel guilty for being sentient, for being a part of the natural world (check those canines and incisors in your inbred idiot mouth) yet being able to control it to satisfy my needs and, yes, wants. We are at the top of the food chain and unique because of millions of years of evolution, and/or God's plan. Either one is an acceptable explanation. I have no desire or masochistic need to return to a less advanced time. You however are welcome to....and while you are at it, stop taking antibiotics; they kill bacteria! And those vaccines you were given? They destroyed the natural habitat of innocent viruses! How dare you!

If you want to be a vegetarian or a vegan? Have at it. But here are the rules. First; don't injure your children with your stupid diet choices. Second; don't preach to me about what I choose to eat and how I choose to spend my money. Otherwise I will mock you and poke fun at your tiny little brain, and its inability to synthesize the information that is literally staring back at you every morning when you shave that pathetic hipster peach-fuzz on your face into some semblance of a political message. Yeah...those teeth again. Pick up a comparative anatomy text book and learn something. Idiot.

[Hat Tip to artisanal'ette for winding me up with this]

These are great. No way around making them. Just do it. Peanut Butter Stuffed Cookies. A few changes are in order. chill the dough, otherwise it is difficult to handle. And flatten the filling a bit so that it is spread out in the cookie dough. That ball of filling is too much of a mouth-full, and if you make it more of a disc it will make the cookie better. And the biggest change is to add chocolate chips to the cookie dough. This was suggested by commenter Bluebell and my wife. Hmmm....what is it with chicks and chocolate?

This sounds convenient for the home kitchen!

What's that? Why is Dildo obsessing over cookies? I have no idea. I don't even eat many of them when I bake, but for some reason they are lots of fun and satisfying to make.
Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies sounds like a fine recipe, and David Lebovitz is a solid chef, so my bet is that these will be a success. I'll tell you next week.
******

What to do with those large chunks of pig leg that are ridiculously large, and ridiculously cheap? I used to follow recipes for pulled pork, and there are some wonderful ones out there. But then I realized that it's pretty much a slam dunk no matter what I do, so now I just toss in stuff that I think will taste good.

The one cooking right now has....um....stuff. Lime juice, the last of some garlic-chili paste, onions, olive oil, parsley, salt, pepper, brown mustard. I think. There might be something missing, but damn, it smells good, so I can't have screwed it up too badly. Oh...a bottle of beer. Because it looked thirsty.

******

Yes, this sounds weird. I had it at a friend's house several years ago and when I saw the recipe I thought he was nuts. But it is strangely good. And it will undoubtedly work quite well with frozen corn, so it's a year-round dish.

Roasted Corn with Lime, Parmesan and Chili

  • 3 medium ears corn
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup milk, at room temperature
  • Juice of 1 large lime, plus wedges for serving
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • Generous pinch of cayenne

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Shuck the corn and cut the kernels from the cobs, tossing them in a bowl with the olive oil and plenty of salt and pepper. Spread the kernels evenly on a large rimmed baking sheet and roast for 15 to 20 minutes, scraping and turning over the kernels once or twice, until they’re tender and lightly caramelized.

Put the corn back into the bowl and stir in the mayonnaise, sour cream, milk, lime juice, Parmesan and cayenne. Taste and adjust any of the flavorings, including salt and pepper, if necessary. (If the corn is at all sticky, just add some more milk.) Serve immediately, with lime wedges, while still warm.

16 Using stout to flavor corned beef will not leave any alcohol. Corned beef usually cooks for 9 hours.

Posted by: Puddin Head at March 19, 2017 04:03 PM (vV/gB)

17 Alcohol generally won't completely be cooked away unless the food is cooked beyond palatability, no. It's usually used to draw out flavors that are alcohol- but not water-soluble, like in a vodka sauce. It's not concentrated enough to make it a relapse risk for an alcoholic, but you should probably ask your doctor about other interactions, because it's still there to some degree.

Also "I'm taking Flaygl" sounds like a parody of a Jewish mother. Which isn't relevant, but I giggled a little when I read it.

31 I was saying a few weeks ago that I would have hard time being Eastern Orthodox as the strict fast doesn't allow any meat or dairy products in Lent, although oddly enough, shellfish is allowed. RedMindBlueState says not all the churches require such strict fasting but this Rector encourages it Fortunately, food wise, not being EO I don't have to follow the fast so I had corned beef on St Patrick's Day. I have been working really hard to bring things to the Lenten study that does not require meat or dairy products. Yesterday, it was date/coconut balls with chocolate chips in the middle. It was vegan. The seemed to like it.

35 Ahhh...the food thread. I've been waiting for this all week.

First up, the most amazing Cream of Mushroom soup. Mouth orgasm in a bowl....seriously. Super easy to make, inexpensive ingredients, consistent results...anyone you give this to will be convinced you're some kind of secret level 11 ninja chef.

Ingredients:

1.5 lb fresh mushrooms. White are good, I prefer Portabellas, for color, and flavor. Get the 'baby' ones, loose if available, choosing those that are about half the size of a hard boiled egg.

1.5 stick butter, salted.

Six cups chicken broth...homemade is best. Hot.

2 cups heavy cream, (or light cream, or 1/2 n' 1/2. Heavy cream is best...but if you're concerned at all about the arteries feeding your heart, half/half is a good substitute. Do not, however, substitute anything else with less fat. Just don't.

One medium onion, sliced thin.

1/2 cup + 2 TBS all purpose flour.

1.5 tsp lemon juice.

1 tsp salt.

1/2 tsp pepper.

Start by gently cleaning your mushrooms under running water, using a very soft brush, or just your fingers. Remove the stems....save them. Slice your mushroom caps with a hard boiled egg slicer....or by hand, if you prefer.

Place butter in a moderate sized pot, and heat over medium heat until melted, (about a 4.....4.5 on my stove). Add sliced mushroom caps, and lemon juice. Stir frequently. The amount of liquid in the pot will increase....once it starts to decrease, (about ten minutes), remove, and save your mushroom caps. Use a slotted spoon...you want to keep the liquid in the pot.

Add sliced onion, and mushroom stems. Cook on the same heat setting for about ten minutes, stirring frequently, until the onions are just cooked through....translucent, and tender.

Add flour. Stir/scrape for about two minutes, forming a thick roux, just turning golden brown.

Add hot chicken broth, (near boiling), a little at a time, whisking constantly. Cook for about another minute...add water a TBS at a time if it gets too thick.

Dump the pot into a blender, (or just use a plunge blender in the pot), and blend to a creamy consistency.

Return to your pot, and heat to a simmer, (same heat setting).

Add your mushroom caps, the two cups of cream, the salt, and the pepper.

Heat just to a simmer....and it's done. Start to finish, this takes about 40 minutes.

If you prefer a whiter, creamier soup, use white mushrooms, trimming 1/4 inch off the bottom of the stems, and heat your roux just til it thickens. Strain blended broth, use white pepper.

47 We raise our lamb in an enriching, cruelty-free environment here at Golden Tree Farm (only 5 miles from downtown Brattleboro, VT). The young lambs have a grassy, sunny meadow where they can graze and play. Their mothers are in the same enclosure so the little ones can nurse until they are ready to switch to grass. Their food is a mix of sweet meadow grass, hand-cut hay from our hayfield, and artisanal feed corn grown by hand with only natural fertilizers. We name every lamb and post pictures of them on our web site, and sometimes in the evenings one of our volunteers will sit out under the moon and sing to them. When autumn comes and the nights grow cold, we put little sweaters on them to keep the lambs warm.

And at first snow . . . Mike cuts their throats with a big knife he calls "my redheaded girlfriend."

I haven't, but you certainly could. As is, with so few ingredients, it's just amazing how good it tastes. I can see adding sherry, wine, replacing chicken broth with beef, adding Worcestershire sauce, substituting lemon with balsamic vinegar. It's one of those simple recipes that is agreeable to experimentation.

75 I have been working on a variation of the latke, but the recipes I have use two eggs and turns it into something similar to egg-foo-yung.

I decided to go with two shredded raw potatoes, one slice of bread reduced to crumbs, dried milk, a teaspoon of flour, shredded onion and salt and pepper:

heat the greased 8" pan to smoking, dump the whole batch into to pan and reduce the heat to the lowest setting, cover and let heat for ten minutes

Then flip the whole thing as best you can, add a tablespoon of water, cover and let cook for another 10 minutes.

I suspect that if I could have found my dried potato flakes I could have used that instead of the dry milk

Surprisingly, the onions are very important, otherwise it tastes bready.

78 Speaking of guilt free killing I watched the latest Survivor today. One tribe had caught a goat that they were planning to kill for a real nice meal. But the thing is that it was a momma goat and they had only caught it because she wouldn't leave its kid. So only one member was really hell bent on "food" everyone else was having their bambi moment.

Of course this is the tribe that had the chickens. So kill a chicken dummies. They ended up letting the goats go. Which I do kind of get. You are on a gameshow and do you really want everyone watching you knowing you're the tribe that killed the momma goat and left the kid motherless, especially when you have chickens, and no more idiot vegan that doesn't want you killing them.

That's always something I've wondered about because they have brought chickens that they can eat, and they do often fish, and there have always been a few instances of a tribe chasing a pig or some other animal, but is that something that would actually be legal for them to hunt catch and kill on those islands they're on?

.Chicken wings in general represent exactly what is right with our free market system. Once they were sold for less than any other part of the chicken except the back. Then some Rocket Surgeon came up with the idea of Hooters and now wings cost more than any other piece of non processed chicken.

The 'cut the kernels from the cobs' part sounds a little unpleasant for the cobs.

We had some Mexican family friends who would do something a little similar, but less a warm salad and more a casserole. They just called it corn pie; the closest thing I can find is pastel de elote. It was basically just creamed corn with a cornbread crust in a casserole. Amazingly delicious, probably because it was about 80% butter by weight (and I suspect the original recipe used lard instead of the butter).

Think about all the useless crap that chicken feed goes into producing: chicken beak, wattle, comb, eyeballs, feathers, chicken feet, chicken toenails, chicken intestines, chicken lungs, etc., etc. All useless. If 100% of the equivalent chicken feed can be used to produce white or dark meat, then tank chicken will eventually be much cheaper than chickens manufactured by other chickens.

And this will put an end to inedible things like "Boca burgers" and "Tofurky".

The Girl Scout's thin mints used to be the best but they changed those cookies radically some years ago.

I really like their "Thanks-a-lot" cookies, now ... but they're too expensive, much too big (who the hell had the great idea of making cookies that crumble too big to just pop in your mouth?) and the whole girl scout's foray into leftism has left a sour taste to all of their cookies. I buy one or two boxes from families I know but that's about it, these days.

101 Fake N' Bake

Another super easy concoction....

It rivals the commercially available mixtures in ease, and use....and you can experiment with it.

Ingredients:

3 cup Bread Crumbs
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
2 TBS softened butter
2 tsp Onion Powder
2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Oregano


Combine all ingredients in a bowl...blend with a fork to a uniform meal like consistency.


Pat pork, or chicken dry with a paper towel. Coat with your mixture, shake off excess.

For chicken, place on crumpled aluminum foil in a baking sheet. For pork, directly in a baking dish.

400 degrees.

Pork chops...25 mins.

Chicken, (bone in...thighs, legs, quarters, backs), 45 mins.

Chicken, boneless, breasts, thighs, about 25 minutes.

You'll end up with left over coating mix....which can be saved in the freezer for a few weeks.

He likes to sometimes repeat words that he thinks are hilarious I(It;s probably some minor, linguistic form of OCD) so around Thanksgiving he says "Let's get a tofurkey" . We never have gotten one. He also likes to look at the chicken feet in the supermarket and say "Umm chicken". I threatened that for April Fools day I was going to serve him chicken feet, which I understand are awfully glutinous and horrible.

Chickens have long ago already figured out the most efficient way of producing chicken. As someone else up-thread already mentioned, when 'science' figures out a way to produce a chicken wing, (or thigh, or breast, or back, or drumstick), that rivals the natural product in taste, and cost, I'll consider giving it a look.

Personally though...the holy grail in this whole vat grown meat debate is bacon. Duplicate that in cost, taste, smell, and appearance...and I'm sold. Until then, I'm going with the real stuff.

Syria has always been in a declared state of war with Israel. Having Israel deal with Syria has always been my preferred way of handling the issues there. Syria is attached to Hizbollah and that always called for some action (more action than Israel has "been allowed", frankly). There was never any reason that we needed to go do anything in Syria. All we had to do was stop condemning Israel every time they did something to Syria (which benefited the whole of the civilized world).

used as food sources. Period. If we can't use them for that, they
won't be liberated to pursue other career opportunities, they'll just
cease to exist.

147 I doubt Lab Chicken will taste particularly good.

Even farm raised salmon and other fish are far less tasty than there naturally occurring counterparts.

But, if it ever does taste just like clucking, pecking chicken.

Then I expect the next step to be....

Human Lab Meat

That way progtards can mainstream cannibalism without really being cannibals-

and give dietary validation to their PETA mantra that -

A cow is a dog is a monkey is a boy.

i'll take a VLT (Venezuelan, Lettuce, and Tomato). Hold the mayo.

I don't know if it's the best, but I always recall. it My family used to go up to Cape Breton every year in the summer. It took 2.5 days because we stopped overnight several times. One place we always stopped in Maine was at a seafood restaurant that had been converted from a horse barn. We had the whole shore dinner from steamed clams and New England Clam Chowder to corn on the cob and steamed lobster. It was great Each individual seating area (stall) had the name of the horse that used to occupy the stall over the door and the still had the iron cage in the wall where the hay came down, but with no hay, of course. . It was all very clean and nice and the food was great. I've eaten many shore dinners since then but never in such a unique setting.

Well, I tried making roasted brussel sprouts today, using a recipe from allrecipes.com. After 40 minutes at 400 F, they were still green and slightly crunchy, so I continued to roast them. Every 10 minutes I checked and are one.

It took 90 minutes for them to turn dark brown, as described in the recipe. The outer skin was chewy, and the inside was sort.

These were probably as good as any brussel sprouts I have ever had, but they still had a kind of dank, bitter undertaste. I probably would have appreciated them more if I were still on Atkins.

Fancy isn't always what does it, sometimes it's the situation. Doing a half-day hike, half-day canoe trip with the Boy Scouts and then sucking down enough fried bluegill filet to make you catatonic. Going off duty after a freezing windy topside watch in Sasebo and catching the shuttle into town to faceplant in champon ramen in a bowl the size of a salad bowl. Cycling out to nowhere and finding a place with really good tacos with tons of fresh cilantro. Stuff like that.

I was perusing IMDB one night, just wasting time, and I happened across the actress' page who plays Rosita on TWD. Clicked on the quotes tab and there was one about having "evolved" passed needing meat.

But has she evolved past Leftism? That's much harder for most actors and actresses.

She should evolve to Breatharian.

218 > I'd eat snake, but the rest? Hell no.

I had snake once. Not much there to eat, actually. The meat is spread thinly along the ribs and there're a lot of rib bones. Very lean and not much taste.

Something I've heard of: fried earth worms! Apparently you put them in a bucket of cornmeal (or something) and let them burrow down, cleaning themselves out and stuffing themselves with cornmeal in the process.

Scoop them out, and fry. High in protein.

227 On the subject of looking in the mirror for evidence of carnivorous/ omnivorous tendencies, you needn't even look as far as the teeth, though they are a good indicator. You need look no further than the eyes. Mammalian predators eyes are always positioned on the front of the head, like ours, for binocular vision and judging range/distance to the prey. Prey mammals have their eyes on the sides, for detecting threats.

Real lobstermen refer to them as "bugs". (I was once a fake lobsterman, which is to say I had a ten pot recreational license).

Real lobstermen hate lobsters, which are nasty vicious cannibalistic little bastards.

I would occasionally catch a five pound hen with roe (an egger) who would inevitably be alone in the cage, even when the bait was gone. (Contrary to popular belief, lobster traps don't trap lobster, they get in and out easily and leave when the food is gone). Why would the hen hang out in the cage? Just to keep other lobsters from annoying her and to eat the young ones that came in. She knew she had to be released. Animals are keenly aware of catch regulations.

I am quite envious of Fenelon's childhood lobster barn. That sounds lovely.

Their customers there are the ancestors of slaves who always got the worst salt cod, and now that people have grown up with those recipes, good salt cod is alien to them and they won't buy it.

"...We have found that earthworms will live for at least several days in cool conditions in moist flour or cornmeal while replacing the dirt in their guts with something more palatable. "Entertaining with Insects" reports that earthworms eat and excrete their weight every 24 hours, so a day or two of purging should be plenty.

When you're ready to cook, "Entertaining with Insects" recommends boiling earthworms for 10 minutes before adding them to your recipe. We've had some success simply breading and deepfrying earthworms, but earthworms may also be an excellent ingredient in stews, pastas, and even omelets..."

290 I buy no growth hormone/no antibiotics whole chicken for $1.69/lb on sale over Purdue. They actually taste like chicken. Purdue mutant chicken are 2x bigger, half the price, but 10x tougher and absolutely flavorless.

291 one of the best meals I ever had was the Paella at Don Pepe's in Newark.

That us. A family of Morons and 'ettes spanning every mood under the sun. If Ace ever shut this blog down it would be like a death in the family.

294 one of my most memorable meals was when i 18. i was on one of those 'if it's tuesday it must be belgium!' bus tours in europe.

i was the youngest by far, so everyone adopted me and one night in the grand square in brussels they told me to pick where we'd eat.

i chose a small italian restaurant where the owner/chef spent the entire night making off-the-menu things for our crowd.

it was grand, alittle like the movie 'big night' but without the letdown because we weren't expecting louis prima.

The Peanut Butter cookies look delicious.

I bought one of David Lebovitz's cookbooks just for the Black and White cookie recipe. It was just like I remembered...

The roasted corn recipe sounds good, too.

Glad I could help getting you a bit riled up, CBD

Yeup... just missing the facial expressions from the other quiet one.

298 There is no food chain. It is a network. You are already food, but eventually you are worm food.

299 "Fried chicken will never be guilt-free."

Written by someone who probably has not spent a lot of time around actually walking, pecking, shitting, and mean chickens.

Jules just refuses to use tasteless Perdue crap. But it does top that Tyson crap. We buy other stuff, tho one of the "organics" was so tough it musta been a rooster! Bad!

301 Good god, look in a mirror and check the size and shape of your canines and incisors. They look and function - as any comparative anatomy will tell you - nothing like those of meat eaters and carnivores. Your canines are short and spade-shaped. You can neither hold an animal in your mouth with them nor pierce anything wider than a straw with them. Also, your mouth is too small to be a meat eater, and you're missing two carnassial ridges of sharp, wide teeth. Your jaw moves sideways, not exclusively up and down. Your saliva has amylase in it, to start digestion of carbohydrate, and is not acidic like carnivores. You have no taste buds for protein, unlike carnivores. Your tongue is heavy with taste buds for carbohydrates and glutamates - plentiful in plant foods and meager in meat. You have to chew food into a ground semiliquid mass to swallow it safely, with flat molars, not shear it off with carnassials and then bolt it in unmasticated chunks.

Resting your argument against vegetarianism and veganism on the existence of canines and incisors in the human mouth is simplistic and fallacious. Why don't you read a comparative anatomy textbook sometime?

Welcome David, you seem like a fun guy. But I'm getting the idea you really can't appreciate a good sirloin steak.

You wanna eat veggies and tofu fine by me. Do NOT try to tell others how to live their lives. That is very truly UnAmerican.

Good thing we learned how to use tools ~2.5 million years ago.

304 Hawaiian-style pork is super easy in the crock pot. Just dump it in, add about 1/4 cup Kosher salt, sprinkle on a little Liquid Smoke, and top with a couple of bananas (peels on.) Let it cook on low for 24 hours. Discard the (now black) bananas, strain the broth and let it sit long enough to separate out the fat. Take out the meat and let it cool enough to handle. Remove bones, fat, and skin. Shred the meat and return with the remaining broth to the pot. Serve with all your luau favorites.

305 "Don't you dare try to make me feel guilty for being sentient"

*sapient

Every animal we eat is sentient and that's what the pointy-headed idiots are usually on about
