Food Thread: Texas! And Low Country Boil And Other Good Things...

sousvide Ace.jpg

Obviously my subtle efforts to introduce Sous Vide cooking to The Horde have borne fruit, because this was the wonderful door prize I received at the world famous Texas Moron Meet-up!

It's a total hoot, as many people have already mentioned, but damn...the food was good too! But before I describe it I have to mention Ben Had's friend "Bryon," who cooked Friday's and Saturday's main courses. He used one of these, which as you can see is designed specifically for roasting whole pigs. But he managed to cook marinated pork loin for one night and pork shoulder for the next night without skipping a beat. Very different than cooking a whole pig, but he managed it with aplomb, seemingly without a care in the world, even when his temperature probe gave up the ghost halfway through the first cook. And worst of all he had some loudmouth from the East coast who fancied himself a good cook, chirping in his ear about temperature and time and oh no...it's not going to work. Luckily Bryon was smarter than the jabbering bounder and ignored him, because the end result was excellent.

Ben Had made a very nice, very subtle chile and crema dipping sauce that went perfectly with the loin, and the pork shoulder was served with a soffritto that went wonderfully!

There were also some sides that stood out, in particular an eggplant dish made by Stephen Price Blair that is in a very famous cookbook! There was also a hominy dish made by some unknown master of the culinary arts that was simple and delicious.

Oh...Posole! I can't forget the posole made by Jack Sucio. But he is a dastardly rascal who promised to send me the recipe but hasn't, so please hector him until he does, because it was also pretty damned fine eating.

Good friends, good food, good guns, and good weather. It's hard not like Texas when you have all of those things under one roof!

Carne de Profanidad

From "Inspector Cussword" comes the recipe for a really, really tasty dish that he was kind enough to bring to the Texas Meet-up, and best of all was thoughtful enough to save some for me because I was pursuing chicken fried steak and was late for lunch!

Ok, here’s my recipe. It’s not actually carne adovada – that’s braised. I twice roast it (3 times if I’m fancy) but don’t braise it really unless you count the last part as braise instead of partially oven-fried.

I guess you could call it carne dos veces asada, but that’s a lot of words. Or Carne de Profanidad (meat of profanity) might work since I’m Inspector Cussword. And because it takes a lot of work.

I used to do all of the below except for the meat prep – I’d just slow cook it and shred it but my youngest can’t eat shredded meat so I made this to give it a lot more toothiness. (If this is too much work, just put the shoulder in a slow cooker with some broth for about 4 hours and shred it, then dump in the chile sauce/paste)

Take a 10 lb pork shoulder. Debone it.

Rub it on all sides with a mixture of New Mexico Medium Chile Powder (2 - 3 tablespoons), 1.5 tbsp of ground cumin, 1tbp ground pepper & 1 teaspoon salt. Some garlic powder and onion powder to your preference.

Put this in a roasting pan with a rack (rack is important, lets the fat melt) with the fat cap on top. Put into oven at 375 degrees American Fahrenheit for 15 -20 minutes. Pull it out let cool for about 10 minutes and slice off the fat cap to render down later.

Cut the thick parts of the meat to be about 1 to 2 inches thick. Sprinkle the spice mixture on all the new exposed sides. Don’t worry about the spices falling into the roaster below the rack – we’ll be using that later. In fact, run a spatula down into the drippings and loosen up the fond on the bottom of the roaster. The cut is really fatty, we’ll end up with about ¼ to nearly ½ inch of drippings by the end of this that you can later strain and use for cooking eggs, etc.

Put the roast back into the oven at 350 for another 15 minutes or until you see some crust form. Pull it out, cool it, and slice into ½ inch to 1 inch chunks. If you run into big pieces of fat, separate them and put that in the corner of the roaster.

Sprinkle with some garlic powder and some onion powder and cumin. Pull the roaster rack out and place the meat in for a final roast – yes, it’s going to roast in the drippings. Roast again for 10 to 15 minutes and then pull out.


While all this last roasting is happening, you need to prepare your chile paste.

Take:
7 dried guajillo chiles
2 dried pasilla chiles
1 or 2 dried ancho chiles

Take off the stems and open the chiles. Take out the seeds and if there is rib – like a greyish white threads on the seeds – take that out too. Rinse these off and place in a small pot and cover the stack with water. If necessary, weigh down the dried chiles with a small saucer or something like that to keep the chiles submerged. Simmer with a lid on for about 15 minutes and then pour off about ½ of the water. The chiles should be reconstituted and floppy when you move them. Drop this whole thing into a blender with about 6 minced garlic cloves. Puree for about 2 minutes.

Pull out the meat and use a slotted spoon to remove the meat and drop it into a slow cooker. Lease as much of the fat in the roaster – you’ll pour that off and strain it later or put it in a glass container and refrigerate it to separate the fat from the rest.

Pour the chile paste/sauce into the slow cooker. Set it on high for an hour and season with cumin (or fresh ground coriander seed – it has a crisper flavor), salt, pepper and some onion salt.

Drop the temp down to low. I usually refrigerate it and reheat it the next day since the flavors infuse the meat a lot more.

What the hell is "falernum?"
A cordial made from an infusion of citrus, spices, nuts and sugar, falernum adds an irreplaceable zing to classics like the Rum Swizzle, Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and Navy Grog, and while a few commercial versions are available on the market, it's surprisingly simple to whip up at home.
I don't drink any of those things, and I have no particular desire to start, but I guess it might be an interesting ingredient to play around with...but I'm not making my own, that's for damned sure.

BC Lowcountryboil1.jpeg

Commenter "Bitter Clinger" fancies himself a Gulf-State Southerner, and while his bona fides may be suspect, that does look like it would be quite tasty.

We had our traveling missionary in town for her stateside tour to update the congregations on the work she was doing in the mission field.

In has become custom over the past 5 years for me to cook the welcome meal for the congregation and missionary, and about 4 years ago I decided to have the Pastor begin asking the missionary that is visiting to tell us what kind of meal they like or some home cooking they don't get overseas. This year I was delighted when I heard "Shrimp!" (Don't ask about the request for Thai Chicken Satay, it consumed two weeks of my life perfecting the recipe southern-boy style).

What was most enjoyable was that shrimp has one of the easiest applications to feed mass amounts of people, the one-pot wonder that is the shrimp boil (or I believe some folks like to call it a low-country boil). Just start a pot of seasoned boiling liquid and add things in waves from the longest cooking time to the shortest cooking time.

Now I'm a landlocked Tennessean, so I don't know jack-squat about doing it properly, but it turned out fantastic as near as I could tell, witnessed by the cherished sign for every cook out there, when the crowd goes silent because everybody is busy eating with no time for chit-chat.

I made mine with the usual taters, corn, sausage, whole garlic cloves, and shrimp, but veered a little off course with the addition of shallots and Brussels sprouts (I never can figure out if it's Brussel sprouts or Brussels sprouts, which doesn't seem quite right, like a double plural). The sprouts were awesome, as they soaked in all of that boiling liquid.

I seasoned with Zatarain's shrimp boil, Spanish paprika, Old Bay, salt, Tony Chachare's cajun seasoning, a stick of butter and some whole lemons.

Now that you've read by book of a comment, here's my question for the knowledgeable Horde: What else should go in a shrimp boil? Is there anything that more experienced boilers like to include? I'm always eager to learn more!


******

grouper.jpg

My local fishmonger had some grouper that looked fantastic...I couldn't resist. But way too many of the recipes I found drowned it in spices, which is a shame for such a nice fish.

So I winged it...my favorite sort of cooking. I had some grape tomatoes of various colors, garlic, basil, and butter. Lots and lots of butter. I did the simplest thing I could imagine; I rough-chopped the tomatoes and threw them into a pan with tons of butter. After a few minutes added some minced garlic, and then when that was fragrant a bit of fresh chopped basil.

As for the fish? Sautéed in a hot pan with even more butter, then into a 350 degree oven to finish. Topped with the tomato stuff and it was a great dish, simple to cook, and almost foolproof.

******

Bluebell sent me a great and easy recipe for pork belly. I have mentioned it before, and probably included a photo or two, but I just made it again because I saw nice looking pork belly at a local market. As most of you know, that's often how I cook...whatever looks good rather than what I decide upon before I go shopping.

Anyway, it's easy. In fact the only remotely difficult step is cutting the grid into the skin. You will need a sharp knife!

Avocados sans thumbprints, beef short ribs that have meat on them (not the stupid little sliver of bone they sneak into the packages), carrots that don't taste like stalky chalk, spare bottles of Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year Old Bourbon, an herb garden that actually produces herbs (but no basil!), well-marbled NY strip steaks and elk backstrap to: cbd dot aoshq at gmail dot com.

And don't think that you are off the hook with maple syrup and French Toast: I'm watching you...all of you! And I am watching you perverts who shake Manhattans and keeping a list for the Burning Times.

17 I made Bruschetta Chicken last night. Make bruschetta with diced tomatoes, fresh basil, chopped garlic, s and p, grated parm, a bit of olive oil and a bit of balsamic vinegar, let sit on counter. Later, quick brown 4 chicken breast in frying pan. Cover cookie sheet with foil. Place chicken breasts on foil, cover with sliced avocado and bruschetta and sliced or grated mozzerella cheese. Broil until bubbly. You can also reduce balsamic to drizzle over the finished product. It's divine.

34 Been using an immersion circulator for a while now.

The only failure I've had was that leg of lamb, when broken down into various muscles, should not be cooked for more than about 2 hours. Tends to get mealy.

Chicken that cooks at 152 degrees for a couple of hours is much better than dry cooking to 160.

One hack: if you ever need to quick-thaw something, set your circulator to room temperature and use cold water. Circulating water thaws much faster than an oven defrost (and won't cook like the microwave will).

I never knew the proper temperature for sous vide shrimp until I boiled some shrimp my usual way until they were ready, picked up my temp probe and shot them. 182 degrees.

Even better is if you throw some defrosted flounder fillets, some scallops, some butter, and shrimp into the same sous vide bag @ 182 degrees.

Salt, sweet, butter, and shrimp.

Well I'm making yet another batch of my homemade salsa, which I've formally decided is the best salsa I've tasted outside of a Mexican restaurant. I just can't seem to get the same flavor out of bottled salsas anymore, and my hunch is that's no accident.

La Costena's serrano chiles in the can are my secret weapon! They just get spicier the longer you pickle and refrigerate 'em.

When our nephew had his PhD party my BIL hired a guy who had a pig cooker trailer. He came and sat the trailer up with propane and a pig on the spit, turned it on and he left. Left a laminated instruction sheet with clear instructions on what to do.


Followed the instructions and it was delicious. Perfectly done whole pig with no muss or fuss. We called him when we were done and he came and got the trailer and hauled it away. I do not recall how much it cost but IIRC it was reasonable for what we got.

Bloom yeast with water and sugar in stand mixer bowl. Add salt, oil, and flour to bowl. Using the hook attachment, set on 1 til the dough comes together. Set on 2 for five minutes. Let rest for five minutes, then on 2 for another five minutes. Let the dough rise until it's doubled in size.

Then put back into the refrigerator for a day or two while all of the delicious 'variants' appear.

My son is a 'foody' and when he comes around and has my pizza he always takes a bite, chews, then asks just how many hours the dough has spent in the 'frig beforehand. I think he's trying to determine just how many hours is 'just enough'. I know it's more then a day and less then three. The sweet spot is somewhere in there.

The rugrats are about to start swarming around the neighborhood for treats, which I don't care to do. SO I have all the lights turned off and am up in the attic (my writing den) with a single lamp.

I'm hungry, but I'm in one of those moods where nothing appeals to me. I'll probably end up having a bowl of cold cereal.

76 On the way home from the MoMee Inspector and I stopped at a Chinese buffet. Honestly, don't go to Chinese buffets in Houston. The food wasn't *bad*, but it certainly wasn't very impressive either. In fact, now that I've found that sesame oil is the secret ingredient to combine with garlic and ginger to make "Asian inspired" dishes taste closer to authentic, we prefer my cooking to the restaurants.

On the other hand, some of the "closed Sunday" and regional specialty Chinese restaurants are very good indeed. There's a Szechuan place near us that is absolutely fantastic.

77 I am at the end of the year, I am down to drying peppers as they come ripe in the garden.

This year my wife asked me to plant Korean chilies, which are apparently called Pugochu (Gochu means chili)

Korean peppers are extremely hot. Just to let you know. As in, mon Dieu roll around on the floor hot. Kimchi is going to be lit.

I am also drying lemon balm and a native mint called Yerba Buena for teas. Christopher Taylor reminded me last week that I wanted to do that. As herbal teas go, they are as good as the barley tea with ginger that I made all last winter, so it will be a nice change this winter.

78 Another half hour or so for the season's first pot roast.

The secret to a good pot roast is the meat. It must be a chuck roast. Forget all about bottom round, top round, whatever. Chuck roast. Period.

That sounds quite yummy!

I follow a method (slightly modified) that I learned watching Alton Brown. 4 minutes per side on a very hot grill, turn 90 degrees at the 2 minute mark on each side for the awesome diamond shaped grill marks. Lower the heat and cook on foil until 5-10 degrees below desired doneness ( use a meat thermometer). Wrap in the foil and remove to rest and reach final temp.

½ tsp cinnamon
½ cup dried cranberries

Combine oil, honey, salt, and vanilla in one bowl, rolled oats, walnuts, and cinnamon in another bowl. Combine the two mixtures. Roast in a shallow pan at 250° for 25-30 minutes. Remove and add dried cranberries.

I often cut my own steaks from a loin from Costco. Sometimes, if there's a bone to navigate, the thickness of the steaks varies. This makes grill times different, of course. If I sous vide them, steaks of different thicknesses are cooked to exactly the same temp throughout, so all I then need to do is apply the sear.

Also, cheaper cuts become much more tender. I've cooked large chuck roasts at 135 degrees for 24-36 hours, and they come out med-rare and as tender as rib roast.

And it’s very alterable. Put pecans or almonds in instead of walnuts, or whatever you like. The original of course calls for raisins, but I almost always prefer dried cranberries.

Thick-cut pork chops
Any tough cut of beef
Chicken thighs
Chicken breasts

It's a technique that lends itself to long slow cooking or careful cooking of delicate foods. It's not intended for everything, just like slow cookers aren't meant to cook all your meals.

Yeah, the vaxx demans for weddings, etc. are the worst!

Hubby and I are fortunate that the accomodations/special requests, etc. on both sides of the family are low key - it's not an insistence that everyone be deprived, just skipping the dangerous items and making sure there's a dish that accomodates the other diets.

204 As nurse mentions, a lot of dietary issues for folks involve digestive intolerance for certain ingredients rather than true allergies like peanuts or shellfish. Food intolerances can be unpleasant but usually not life threatening such as lactose intolerance. And some are simply because of folk wisdom where someone has an upset stomach and then blames it on a specific ingredient. One of my family members has true documented problems with certain ingredients, another family member simply blames a lot of different ingredients as 'allergies'.

Thus, the idea is that children's immune systems are not stressed very much and the immune system decides harmless substances are in fact deadly pathogens for targeting.

Others argue that people that would have died in the past now live to reproduce and still others argue that artificial substances in the environment from drugs, plastics, etc. derived from modern chemicals is to blame as the immune system becomes hyperactive.

Maybe all of these things operate in unison but the problem is that doing research in these areas usually results in an ecological fallacy--either using global statistics to predict what is true in an individual or using an individual to generalize what is true for the population. For the most part, controlled experimentation on people over time is both morally questionable like the Tuskegee Syphillis project and/or expensive to conduct.

244 229 Tom Servo, the older I get, the more I use probabilities as a guide rather than absolute certainties in natural outcomes.

Personally, I had childhood allergies and took allergy shots for years which cured it--moved to another region of the country and now have allergies again, just seasonal instead of year around.

What happens though is a lot of people decide that x is the problem without actually documenting it in sort of a bandwagon effect. One close relative is both gluten, msg, and soy intolerant and tests including biopsies of the gastrointestinal tract indicate that. Another claims allergies to red dye, onions, etc. with no documentation whatsoever other than gastric upset rather than more serious vomiting, etc. The old saying that food disagrees with him or her is more appropriate in such conditions. I don't tolerate grease in food very well anymore but I am hardly allergic to it unlike someone that actually has gallbladder problems.

Never thought peanut butter would go good on rye, but I might try it. I am fond of butter and cream cheese on toasted rye. Has to be the good rye from the bakery section of the grocery, not that soft stuff.
