Food Thread: Fire Burn And Cauldron Bubble Edition

pepperfire.jpeg

This is why my house occasionally smells like it is on fire...I love, love, love to fire roast or toast or, let's face it, burn peppers over my biggest burner before I cook with them. It's easy, it's fun, you get to burn things inside the house, and it rarely requires professional assistance from your neighborhood fire brigade. Although...my wife got stuck behind an FDNY truck a few days ago and asked whether one of the prerequisites for the job was to be handsome...so maybe for some of you that is a bonus.

Anyway, the technique is self evident, and the flavor boost is huge. Even if you peel the blistered skin you are left with the toasty, smoky flavor of the pepper, and that is a grand and glorious thing. I pop them in a paper bag to steam after I toast them on the stove when I am planning to peel them. That allows the peppers to soften a bit and it seems to loosen the skin.

When I make salsa I overload it with peppers, and it doesn't really matter what kind, as long as I toast them first. The flecks of charred skin in the sauce are a lovely addition. Oh, you can do the tomatoes the same way, and even in the depths of winter the charring makes them palatable. Sort of.

Random Notes From The Vast Kitchens Of Chez Dildo

The pickling experiment continues, with the sensational addition of thinly sliced red onion and sliced jalapenos. Not together! I pulled some of the veins and seeds out of the jalapenos because I didn't want them to be too hot. I was looking for a nice bit of heat and a vinegary tang, and I got it! A few of the pickled jalapeno rings on top of a burger but under the cheese is a damned fine way to build a cheeseburger.

Yes, I am lazy, so the four racks of pork ribs I made a few weeks ago went onto the grill, not into the smoker. Fine, take my man card and make me wear a frilly apron (or in Garrett's case, a lovely gingham one), but we had 20 people for dinner, so I was interested in easy over authentic. But I got smart and used two temperature probes, and discovered something most of you knew already; the temperature gradient in a gas grill is huge, particularly if you have only one of the burners going (the one under the smoke box). About 210° on the far side, and about 385° over the smoke box.

Grilling asparagus is much easier if you put them on the grill at right angles to the grates. Just sayin'.

Meatballs were on the menu, and there was much rejoicing, and much cleaning too. Unfortunately, I don't think there are any shortcuts, so making the meatballs was a careful and gentle and long process, ending with frying them a bit, which is messy. But gently formed meatballs that are browned in fat then simmered in good tomatoes is a fine thing. And plopping a couple or five of them on top of my almost-world-famous ratatouille is a different and most excellent combination. And a dollop of ricotta doesn't hurt.

******

My grandmother also made spectacular chopped liver, but the idea that one uses beef liver borders on heretical. It's nonsense. Offensive nonsense. Arrantly offensive nonsense. Patently ridiculous, arrantly offensive nonsense.
A Love Letter to Chopped Liver
There are lots of versions of chopped liver, from the simple concoctions of Ashkenazim (broadly, Jews from Eastern Europe) to the labor-intensive deliciousness of a fine pâté or rilletes. But I have never had a bad one, and I have never had one made from beef livers.

QED.

So, these people are vegans, so that means they are loons. But they are funny loons, and for some reason they don't come across as preachy as much as just foul-mouthed and funny.
Grilled Romaine Salad
That being said, this recipe would be damned good with a Caesar dressing (raw egg!) and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.

Just sayin'.

Anybody ever seen or used one of these things? Because it sounds like an elegant method, although an auto feed for the fuel would make it close to perfect. Anyway, here's the website, which is worth poking around if any of you are sort of geeky about cooking. Or just geeky. Or like barbecue. KBQ

I did not know that there was such a thing as Tupelo Honey. I mean, I knew about this Tupalo Honey, because everybody knows Van Morrison. But it's also a real honey? And, apparently, a rather good one.

This is French cooking at its best. Oh, I guess the haute cuisine of Paris and Lyon are better known, but getting out of the cities (or eating at a good bistro in one fo the big cities) will reveal the kind of food that many Frenchmen eat, and it is good stuff! Normandy-style pork and cider casserole reminds me of the stews my mother used to make. Well, not all of them. The ones with tripe or brains or, strangely, the veal stew, made me gag.

13 Chicken fried steak tonight. Haven't had that in quite some time.

Plus I have jerky going in the smoker. Promised our son and my crack head brother some jerky.


We have a motorcycle run next weekend and I am bringing beans. I usually cook 4-5 pounds of bacon with a couple of large onions to add to the Bush's baked beans and dump them in a couple of large crockpots. This time I am going to try cooking the bacon on the pellet grill.

17 Hey everybody.

CBD, it's interesting that chiles are your topic this weekend, because lately I've had a strong craving for green chiles.

I am tempted to get to the store, buy and mix together some sour cream and mayo, and then pack in some diced green chiles, jalapeños and serranos, and see what kind of flavor I get. I can't help but think it would make a tasty dip.

20 I've also been craving, of all things, cheesecake lately.

I mentioned in last night's ONT I wanted to get a whole cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory, but they charge 55 bucks! I'm wondering if it would be worth it instead to get a Sara Lee $8 plain cheesecake at the store and just drizzle it with chocolate syrup and Kahlua instead. Thinking it can't help but be good.

22 You should get one of those indoor grills for stuff like those peppers. I got mine last Christmas and it is the best thing since sliced bread. No more worries about inclement weather and just as good taste as a gas grill.

23 I got a gift assortment from Omaha Steak. There were 2 pckgs of Chicken Fried Steaks. Reheat in oven. They were pretty good.

Just had the pleasure of finding a great Lebanese market in my new AO, so I now have all of the fun and sort of hard to find Middle Eastern ingredients that I like. Plus little meat and spinach pies. Young lady behind the counter has some pretty pointy elbows, too. Just sayin'.

In odd food news, I ventured into Walmart last night (don't judge me), and of all of the foods I would have expected to find in the grocery side of a Walmart, whole fresh beef tongue was not one of them. This is good. I have a beef tongue recipe I've been meaning to try for ages.

77 For those not in the Southwest who may not be familiar, Hatch Chili's are a particular kind of Poblano pepper grown in the Hatch County area of New Mexico. (just north of El Paso) They are generally regarded as the best of all the cooking peppers, and a vital ingredient for any Tex-Mex dish.

Yes!

But we've been roasting our peppers on the grill until winter takes hold.

Bunch of red peppers, blackened, toss in a paper bag. Voila! Pretty much self peels.

Salmon tonight. With spinach. Sandwiched together and baked, my go-to for salmon when I'm lazy. Two fillets and a bunch of spinach.

This week I made chicken salad for some of my lunches. I roasted some chicken breasts when I had a minute. I brushed them with a mixture of lemon juice, dijon, garlic s and p to keep them moist and flavorful until they were done. When I made the salad I decided to toast some almond slivers and add some plumped golden raisins.

Husband has been enjoying it this weekend, so it's gone now.

134 Pupusas are a type of Salvadoran fried corn flat bread, it is made from pre-cooked corn meal instead of corn meal that is made out of hominy (masarena).

It is a basic fried corn cake about a finger width thick and about the size of a hamburger roll.

In El Salvador they put cheese or cooked meat in the middle before cooking them, in Colombia and in Venezuela they call them arepas and do stuff with them after they are cooked.

I still have to learn how to make them.

It's still toasty up in our neck of the NoVA woods, but I roasted a turkey breast for dinner tonight. I have missed roast meat, because it just so freaking hot in my kitchen.

As for soups, I just found a recipe for mexican cabbage soup that sounds divine. CBD's roasted peppers would work beautifully for this recipe, that also calls for chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. That with chicken quesadillas would be a superb dinner.

169 I also love fried plantain and fried cassava.

My GF makes and eats kimchi and similar, which is nice, but when she has a dinner with her other Korean friends, there are things I am not able to eat because they tear my gut up so much.
really there are kimchis I can't eat because they are too spicy.

171 Oh, and that burger was served on a brioche roll, which really is the way to go. I usually don't eat the buns, but this one was divine, and really light so it was hardly like eating bread at all. *shifty eyes*

181 Qdpsteve, Dave Ramsey has Financial Peace University classes all over the country. They are great! He walks you through step-by-step and his presentation style is very bracing and encouraging. He appeals to your head and your heart at the same time. It really helps when you feel inspired like that.

182 It is, bluebell, but it is superb for cooking. I had a calvados glazed pork roast with butter roasted potatoes and veggies in Bretagne that brought me to tears.

Good tears, this was before I had dairy issues.

190 Emmie, that's good advice. Ramsey understands, and I agree, that in order for a person to make real changes in their lives, they have to *emotionally* want to make the change as well as *intellectually* want it.

That's the hardest part about dieting for me. I know intellectually I have to cut back on a lot of things, but the emotional part of me just refuses to give them up. It's so hard.

A blog I go back to from time to time is Food52. It really has grown from when I first found it years ago.

I have at least one of their cookbooks (too lazy to go see if I have more than one).

And their community has grown. You can submit unique recipes, enter their contests (theme based recipe contests, which are fun), and they even have a design center for designing tools and gadgets for the kitchen (it sounds like they use ideas submitted to them as well - but I doubt you get royalties!)

195 Oh yeah, baking meatballs is the way to go. I do two big sheet pans at a time, freeze most of 'em. It would take forever on the stove. Plus who wants to stand there watching meatballs burn on one side when you can go put your feet up in the living room while they bake?

Posted by: JuJuBee at September 08, 2019 05:20 PM (MSTWM)

196 Got side tracked. Glad you found the pan. The few times I've make cheese cake I think it said to bake in a pan of water. Supposed to keep it from cracking on top.

203 Roasting peppers is one of my favorite "past-times" in the kitchen. Since I have an electric stove, *spits*, I have to use my grill.

You can toss them into a paper bag or even a Ziploc for about ten minutes for easy removal of the extraneous, waxy and bitter skin.

I've done it for soups, salsas, rice, sauces and toppings for sausage sammiches.

Leaving a bit of the burn on the peppers is, indeed, a favor multiplier.

222 Oh! I have a question I've been meaning to ask here for weeks!

Someone (and I can't remember who) gave us a jar of wine jelly. It's a deep red and not very sweet, and I have no idea what to do with it.

I tried searching "red wine jelly" and I found recipes for it, but strangely, nothing told me what to actually do with it once you have it.

Any ideas? I mean other than putting it on cream cheese on a cracker, which would be okay, but not great?

I've wondered what would happen if, in 1895, some wanted asked for their steak, spicy.

I've usually thought they'd just get a side of horseradish with it. Or, the chef would just bring them prime rib with horseradish instead of steak.

OTOH, I do believe a few chefs knew a little about chiles...

254 If you are a whisky drinker and you like Tennessee whisky, George Dickel released its Bottled in Bond 100 proof last week for the second time this year and if you are lucky there is still some on the shelf at your liquor store.

Its a 14 year aged Tennessee whisky, and it is really, really nice. at $35-40, smooth and mature without losing its character (kind of like CBD), its probably the best value on the shelf at your liquor store if you prefer quality.

Very few Americans have tasted proper olive oil. In most pantries lurks rancid olive oil, masquerading as extra virgin.

"A large percentage of Americans are happy with defective oils because that's all they know," said David Neuman, president of olive oil company Lucini, which works with small regional farmers in Tuscany.

Peppercorn Sauce.
.5 C white wine (or brandy for deeper flavor)
1 shallot finely chopped
1-2 T freshly cracked peppercorn. ( I use black)
1 3/4 C chicken stock
1 3/4 C beef stock
.5 C whipping cream

Bring wine, shallot and crushed peppercorns to boil in heavy med. saucepan. Simmer until almost evaporated or reduced by half. Add both stocks and boil until reduced to about 2 Cups. (around 30 mins.)
Add whipping cream and cook until sauce coats spoon (usually 10 mins.) Or desired consistency is reached.

Can make 2 hours ahead. Keep at room temp.

Tips: Reduce, reduce, reduce before adding cream. And don't add flour or cornstarch.

I never have understood why Dickel has taken a backseat to Jack Daniels. JD was a better liquor back when it was 90 proof or even 86 proof, but now it's just a name brand unless you are paying for the gold label 27 or the Sinatra (which actually tastes like the old 90 proof).

And thus, doesn't tend to mix as well. Jack can handle just about anything.

Two, George is fairly heavy on that peanut taste that some bourbons have.

Some people like it. Some don't.

Either way the George Peanut taste insists on itself.


BC,

I'm with you as far as ryes go. I'd rather drink rye than bourbon. Though I like both.

Love the casserole recipe. Ought to be able to do it in about 3 months, when weather's appropriate. Actually have some cider we got up in Monterrey back in June, pretty dry. "Basque" style cider.


Today will be easy/lazy cookin'. Local grocery has very good house-made sausage of various kinds, excellent for grilling. A green salad using some of the last of the bumper crop of cherry/grape tomatoes. Good beer. Almost no real cooking, but good.

440 In Hell:

Michigan Morons and Michigan-curious Morons will be dining at the Hell Saloon on Friday night, the 20th of September. Dinner the next evening in Chelsea MI in the blessed shadow of the Jiffy Mix plant.

Just sayin'.

441 The lively and delightful Mrs naturalfake is making tonkatsu for dinner.

So....yum!


I think I'll make Cowboy Killers to go along with that using Balcones Texas Rye and Barolo Chinato Cocchi should pick up on the flavors of the tonkatsu sauce.

442 Just throwing in a pizza.
Frozen.
Yeah, I know, but i just spent several hours at urgent care. Sliced two fingers open when my coffee pot broke. Debated whether or not to go in, but it wouldnt stop bleeding! Thought I might've had glass still in one finger and the other was cut pretty deep. Only needed 2 stitches. And of course they insisted on a tetanus shot because I wasn't up to date.

444 Amazing how often you smack your hand on something when it is bandaged and sore!

Fun article, thanks!

Pousse Cafes are fun to look at but rarely taste worth a damn.

B52s, Buttery Nipples, Pineapple Upside-Down shots and Sex w/ An Alligators all taste okay.

I used to make one called a Cham-Wow with Chambord and Jago Vodka Cream that was great, but they discontinued Jago. It tasted like one of those Creamsaver candies that Lifesavers put out.

But most are just going for color combos or clever word play and actually suck when you drink them.

Me either, I was just saying. Because honestly after several comments, I felt like an invisible gal. So I wanted some kind of acknowledgement. Want attention around here in the food thread, just say something about bacon. Want mega attention, just say something about bacon AND bacon grease.

452 QDP,

You are able to buy so much stuff, yet you never pay on your defaulted payday loans.

You work part-time and you are on SSDI. What is the reason for SSDI?

Yes, many people need SSDI, to meet their monthly expenses.

Integrity is a great characteristic to have, just saying.

453 Oh boy. I just found a recipe for flourless Hazelnut Brown Butter Brownies. And it uses 7 oz. of hazelnuts per batch. Must. Try.

Please to be sharing this recipe.

Ha!

I think my worst ever concoction was a ManBarePig.

Absolute Mandarin, Barenjager and WhistlePig have no business in the same drunk, layered or otherwise.

It gave us an opportunity to make fun of Al Gore, Jr. though, so there's that.

457 2 lemons, zest finely grated

Do you mean the zest of 2 lemons, not including the actual lemon?

458 The stew recipe sounds delicious. Will make it when the weather is cooler. 99 degrees here today.

459 I remember Nick's, in N.O. Tossed my cookies there at least once if I recall.

I'll put it up October first. If I wasn't moving I'd do it right now. Heck, they had the Halloween candy out in August.

461 Brought home a bag of Hatch roasted peppers today. Life is good.

462 So I shopped at Meijer for the first time today for the weekly foodstuffs instead of Kroeger because 1) Kroeger is anti-gun and 2) Peter Meijer is running against Justin Amash. The sprawl of Meijer had me walking and walking, never did find some items. I am sure they have, just couldn't find it. But that Amash clown has simply got to go.

463 Coarse black pepper was the gateway drug. Now, Im up to habanera on my oatmeal. Along the way I jonesed out of halapenos stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon then smoked. We are on the verge of a national calamity with JA jalapeno anon forming in North Dakota. There outta be a law.
