Food Thread: Pull It! Pull It Good!

pulledpork33.jpg

Pulled pork is one of those foods that is a pleasure to make, because it is so easy and tastes so damned good and is so versatile that it rivals shrimp! And while making it in a conventional smoker requires a...um..conventional smoker, I think it is entirely possible to make it in the oven with very little loss.

But you know what's even easier and better?

Yup! You guessed it!

Nurse Ratched's favorite cooking technique...SOUS VIDE!

24 hours at 160 degrees and then chill it down, stick it in the refrigerator, and when you need it just dry it off, pop it in a 300 degree oven with your favorite rub for about 90 minutes so you get a nice bark, then pull away. Hell, if you are in a rush don't even bother with the oven.

The advantage of Sous Vide is that it keeps the meat incredibly moist, and when it's done you still have all of that juice that is a great base for a sauce.

I've got about eight pounds of the stuff in the refrigerator, and while my original plan was to freeze half of it, after I tasted it I realized that it would be gone in very short order.

Yes, I like to eat.

******

I'm a big fan of fun restaurants that make interesting and uncommon foods, but I always temper my curiosity with some perspective.

"Hands down, the tastiest Mexican/Latino food you can get in Dubai"

I was poking around for ideas and came across that quotation. And it made me chuckle. When I am in new places I tend to try their local cuisine, but I am willing to try something clearly not local if it makes sense. Dubai Mexican just doesn't.

I know, I know...with that much money floating around it is bound to attract very good chefs no matter what the location, but it just sounds off, and not just because they probably can't use pork. Who would be able to tell the difference between good food and crappy? The tourists? The locals? The imported labor?

SO...what's the weirdest and most out of place cuisine you have ever seen?

******

From commenter (rarely, which is too bad) "Marty," comes a photo of his backyard pig roast. There are probably 50 ways to do this, and of the ones I have enjoyed I cannot recall a bad one. But this sure is a spectacular display!

bbqpig cross.jpg

Some searching on YouTube brought me to Asador bbq AKA the Argentine or Patagonian cross. I managed to rig up a contraption attached to my ATV jack, so I could raise or lower it. It worked fine, but was a bit unstable, so I'll get something purpose-built by a welder next year (we're planning to do lamb then).

Heat control is by building a big fire, and moving the coals close to the pig. Temp is determined by holding your hand by the pig. If you can hold it just 15 seconds, it's hot enough. Less than that, too hot.

Anyway, it worked out great. We had about 40 people and everyone had a blast. Got so many compliments on the pig and all were very interested in the bbq method.


The one glaring problem is that I wasn't invited.
******

I got an e-mail from a Virginia state prison address, and I thought I would share it with you. My correspondent is doing time for some unspecified crime, but got an additional few years for shivving someone in the chow line. Something about "Keep your damned cauliflower off my plate!"

Anyway, Little Spoon Farm's Sourdough Recipes look intriguing, in particular the sourdough biscuits!

******

Alton Brown's Roasted Bone Marrow with Parsley Topping sounds really good, mostly because bone marrow is a rare pleasure. And to be honest, I wouldn't bother with the parsley salad more than once. It sounds pleasant, but there is very little on earth as good as roasted bone marrow slather on some good bread.
******

We have had this debate on these august pages, but it never hurts to get the opinions of some self-appointed experts. G&G’s Great Mayonnaise Taste Test seems like a very good time, although I would have served food with the test samples.

In fact, maybe making classic mayonnaise-based dishes would have been a better way to test the quality of the various makes. Chicken salad comes to mind, but really, most foods go well with mayo. I can't think of many that don't.

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.

35 No sous vide here (yet), but slow cooker also produces good pork for pullin', in my experience. I bought some of those claw-like pulling forks with handles a while back, nice for working on big pieces, always end up with some kind of fork for the finer work.

I've mentioned it before but slow cooker pulled chicken is also great, easy, and cheap when you buy thighs on sale. Toss in chicken, some spices, come back 5 hours later, save some liquid, remove/shred chicken, replace with as much liquid as desired, add sauces or spices - done. When I come across the big trays of skinless/boneless thighs on deep discount, always do some pulled chicken.

36 Go to Parker's in Wilson. or is it Wilson's in Parkers for some legit pulled pork. Joking aside I used to use Alton Brown's beef ribs recipe. It involved the oven as I recall.

The thing with bbq is almost no one can do it traditionally and do it well.i have been to enough so called Texas meat ups with Texans who had various allegiances to realize the bbq was mostly about staying up all night and drinking beer. And to be honest,there is nothing wrong with that.

but for pork bbq, I wonder about this. I am sure it is good, no question there. But I doubt it compares to something smoked for 12 hours over hard wood. If so, then those guys are wasting their time.

Also, try Wilber's in Goldsboro. It is near an AF base at least if that place didn't get bamhammered by the Swamp.

46 Mexican food historically has followed the oil industry, internationally. Well, Tex-Mex at least. Had very good Mexican at a place in Anchorage in the late 80s.

There was a Mexican place in Baku I always meant to try, but never did. Kebab places were too good and cheap, never sent much beyond those.

In Vung Tau, south Vietnam's coastal oil town, I didn't notice any Mexican places. But it's mostly been the Russian oil industry that's developed those reserves, so, figures.

Remember a conversation with a young military guy in a shooty place, he was from NC, I asked about Parker's and he lit up, he was from close to there.

On golf trips to/thru NC, always meticulously researched and tried BBQ places. Parker's was among the best. Recall that White Swan (a few locations) was also good. And up in Lexington managed to fit in 3 places in 20 hours (last was take-out bulk pulled pork and incredible fresh rolls from Speedy's, for back where I lived). And of course the Honey Monk for dinner, and some place for lunch I can't remember the name of.

When I was a wee tad and Mom was making Sunday Pot Roast, there was always a hollow bone in the center of the roast loaded with yummy, melt in your mouth bone marrow, which I always claimed.

But who got the best part of the roast, the fatty, creamy rich marrow every single time? That's right. This guy.

77 Picked up a bag of Hatch chiles, and as often is the case, let that ingredient force me to find recipes to try or repeat. I get "recipe block" when trying to mix things up, getting an ingredient some times is a catalyst to recall some recipes or try new ones.

Roasted them all on the grill and chopped them up. Used some in some very good Mexican street corn (grilled corn, cut off and tossed with the chiles, Mexican crema, mayo, lime juice, and chile powder).

Used the rest in a slow cooker white bean chicken chili that turned out very nicely (shredded white meat chicken, white beans, chicken stock, and a salsa verde made from roasted onion/garlic/tomatillo).

86 Been to Parker's in Wilson NC twice, maybe three times. Their hush puppies and fried chicken were also incredible.

Remember a conversation with a young military guy in a shooty place, he was from NC, I asked about Parker's and he lit up, he was from close to there.

On golf trips to/thru NC, always meticulously researched and tried BBQ places. Parker's was among the best. Recall that White Swan (a few locations) was also good. And up in Lexington managed to fit in 3 places in 20 hours (last was take-out bulk pulled pork and incredible fresh rolls from Speedy's, for back where I lived). And of course the Honey Monk for dinner, and some place for lunch I can't remember the name of.

Posted by: rhomboid (OTzUX) at September 26, 2021 03:27 PM (OTzUX)

it took me ages and leaving NC to try the fried chicken. It was legit the best fried chicken i have ever had. These guys should be paying us but I know it is Morons speaking from the heart.

The other cool thing is their prices are low, and help are beyond friendly by modern American standards. I t stands out so much it is unavoidable. An America that is almost lost but should be respected and defended.

103 I had pizza in Iganga, Uganda. It was was good but the four hour wait was a bit long.

I fondly remember the time I ordered some kind of chicken dish somewhere in Uganda.
After at least an hour wait I asked the waiter if my meal would be coming soon.
He said "Jesus is coming soon but not your chicken ". No he didn't say that.
What he said was "the chicken is not here."
"You mean you don't have any chicken?"
"Yes. We have no chicken. "
I laughed.

109 Thanks, Rhomboid, that does help.

I'm not sure exactly what bad food prompted this, but when I was in seventh grade, I told my mother, if you shop for the food, I'll cook it. So I cooked dinner for six from that time on, poring over cookbooks, etc. So much fun. I even made lasagna, making my own noodles.

Lots of family around for that one, all suspicious, no one willing to taste. Fortunately my sister was there with her son, then a toddler. He was allowed to sample, and when he dug in and asked for more, everybody else did, too!

110 Mom was an excellent cook so misfires were few and far between.

But, as a money-saver in our Catholic household, far too many Friday meals we had Tuna Casserole.

It wasn't horrible but it wasn't kid friendly either.

On the other hand, when she made her Oyster Stew or even better Cheese Soufflé with Mushroom Sauce. Man that was some great eating.

121 So I'm picturing generations of Texas pit masters at places like Cooper's, Snow's, Black's, Louis Mueller's, Kreutz's, and other BBQ joints (but not Franklin's, he's just a parvenu with an understanding of marketing and social media) thinking "Damn, we wasted all those years and burned all those trees making BBQ when we could've just put the meat in a bag and boiled it." Call me a purist or even a curmudgeon, but it ain't BBQ unless it's cooked in a wood burning pit for several hours. And don't even get me started on pellet smokers. If you're going to use one of those, just save your money and go but a pre-cooked brisket at HEB.

When on a Keto diet I put the pulled pork on coleslaw.
If you make both you get to add the spices and avoid sugar or you can make the BBQ sauce with one of the Keto replacement sugars (Lakota brand works for me).

215 I didn't have a real dislike for breaded pork chops as a kid but I didn't think they worth cooking. Dad mentioned when all the local eateries stopped offering pork chops so I made em. Mine are pretty good. I seared mine and finished in oven maybe 10 minutes instead of baking them into dryness which was mom's technique. I've also done a teriyaki type marinade for grilling that worked out fine. Mom was much better than my grandmother for not cooking all meat to almost shoe leather, but she did over cook pork chops.

same here, almost eerily same. My mom was super strong, she was in the famous book "Who'es Who in America". My parents lived a happy life, always supporting each other at every turn. The two rules in my family were no lamb and no liver.

When I became a very skilled cook, I would sneak lamb on my dad and he was kind enough to respect it. We never ate liver, it was the law.

240 we discussed this a long time ago. I say the great world cuisines are French, Italian, Mexican, Chinese and Indian. It is a major test when people from far abroad want your cuisine. I think Mexican and Chinese need a special call out because I legit think people underrate them. Think of Mexico,there are probably 20 other Latin countries.But those cuisines only appeal to their countrymen and hipsters.

They not not only have dozens of Mexican and Tex Mex places in the UK and France, they have them all over. It is funny how much we sleep on that cuisine. The other one we sleep on is Chinese. WE think of sticky take out. But the reality is they at leas discovered as much about cuisine as the rest of the world combined.

249 The best carrots in the world are grown in Alaska. Something about the long days, not too hot, makes a seriously tender and sweet carrot. I grow them in the back yard, but the semi-commercially grown ones up here are just as good. You can't get them all year, obviously, but when you can, it's like eating orange candy.

I just pickled the rest of my garden carrots, because I couldn't stand them going bad before we ate them all. Dill, garlic and cayenne, FTW. I'll open one next week to see how well they came out. I'm looking very forward to one of those (or two) in my Sunday morning bloody Mary.

Glad to hear. Our local fancy eatery does them deep fried like you'd do onion rings at home. And then pairs that with a zucchini/summer squash/bell pepper mix done up tempura style. Serve with lemon, marinara and a ranch-style dip and it's heaven.

Mom would make us eat liver sometimes. It was the worst. All of us kids would sit at the table, for hours sometimes, trying to choke down what were admittedly small portions (not allowed to leave the table until we finished). I tried it once as an adult. Nope. Still vile.

Oddly, venison liver was much less vile. Still, would have to be pretty friggin' hungry.

Agree. There's something wrong with their flavor. Not sure how to describe the problem. I like pretty much every kind of bean, but not lima beans, no matter how prepared.

I bet you could use lima beans to make the world's worst refried beans.

Posted by: Skip at September 26, 2021 04:05 PM (2JoB

This.

Sunday dinner was always lots of family and often a bunch of friends. Sunday dinner is the one time mom or grandma gets to show off her cooking skills and get praised for them. The rest of the week, she works her ass off for not much notice, including making one serving of meat last three days. But Sunday was the whole chicken, the whole beef roast, all the meatballs, plus all the fixin's.

In my family, you cook for the masses as a way of giving. We've never heard of women who can't cook.

I legit hated them as a kid and young adult. My guess is if I had them in the right recipe, I could tolerate them. I was never a picky eater, and I judge picky eaters big time as people. I never liked lima beans, cucumbers and sweet potatoes. I pretty much liked everything else, and now i love cucumbers.

Then I started cooking, and it turned out that I love it, if you don't overcook it to the point where it competes with a shoe sole for texture. Overcooked liver is also really bitter.

330 Something a little different. A few months ago my taste preferences for food changed. Most meat and wheat products lost their appeal. Beef is okay if it is rare, almost raw and fish is fine. (This isn't Covid related, which I don't have. My senses of taste and smell are normal but the likes have changed.) I put it down to the amount of antibiotics I've had to take for almost two years for various reasons combined with the usual diabetes pills. Fresh fruit and veggies, oats, corn flour are still fine. And the dislike for wheat products, even pasta, has helped me lose over 60 pounds. (Which I certainly needed.)

One surprise is my taste for liquor has expanded. I still hardly drink at all, maybe one measured ounce sipped neat over several hours. But now the flavors are more vibrant. This applies to bourbon, rye, and scotch. Haven't tried any other types of booze.

Being off of antibiotics for a couple of months now, I seem to be getting some tolerance back for meat.

Sure it wont play here in this day and age. But Peking Gourmet Inn is famous for serving politicians and military personnel. That 90 percent of them were Repubs should no surprise you. The Dem have their own hangouts. THey basically consist of every other place. But there are some that specialize in catering to Dems.

Man I am getting old or this business can get pretty stark.I knew the name I was looking for because I have eaten there.But it is no longer on any Dem go to list.Back in the day, it was famous for being a Dem Joint,at least as famous as Peking Gourmet Inn.

Posted by: grammie winger at September 26, 2021 04:17 PM


As a young teen, I was sent off to my grandparents every August to help out. My job was predominately to weed and shuck lima beans. Imagine a couple of brown paper bags filled with lima beans that took hours to shuck. All to fill a standard size mixing bowl.

So I really like to eat lima beans, because I realize the effort expended to create even a tiny little pile of them. To take some liberties with Shakespeare, when it comes to vegetables... "A little butter cures us of the deed."

Turns out she was rather traditional: steak, London broil, roast beef, fish sticks, goulash, spaghetti, occasionally tacos (to this day my favorite of hers), Appian Way pizza kit, Chun King chicken chow mein kit. Hard for me to think of much else, but then both my parents were very old-fashioned meat-and-potatoes types.

Posted by: Hatari Somewhere on Ventura Highway

Ok. After you flip when one side is crispy, pour some cream along the rim of the pan. Then make some hollows in the hash. Crack some eggs in. Cover and cook until the eggs are done.

You can thank me later.

I can commiserate. We rented a Uhaul truck on Monday and loaded our fridge, washer, and dryer and all the things we felt we could go without accessing for a couple of days. On Tuesday, hubs came down with Covid. By Wednesday, I had it as well. We can't figure out how to travel 750 miles to our new house without stopping for gas and bathroom where we would be exposing other people.

I've been wearing the same clothes for a week. I do NOT want to partially unload the truck and try to find the boxes with my clothes.

Uhaul has been very sweet. They gave us a few free days when we told them we were delayed due to illness and then they gave us a discount for even more days when we found out we were going to have to isolate.

Waah.

"Telemedicine" is just a new way for doctors to nickel and dime you to death, charging consultancy fees to your insurance and all that shit.

My cousin, he's 43. Just two years older than me. Well he had a stroke. I guess it was minor but he did one of these telemedicine things just for the doctor to tell him they need to run a bunch of tests because it really unusual to have a stroke so young .

609 I think Delsym is about the best over-the-counter available. It's better than nothing.

Buckwheat honey works better than Delsym! That's what our pediatrician used to recommend, then they switched to the honey. I was dubious, but it really worked.

611 Dad used to love liver, but cooked it to shoe leather. I like it now, properly cooked.

Slavyanka makes a mean Borscht with Lima beans for Lent. Love it.

612 Bluebell, the Spanish nursing homes that saved residents from Covid were using honey as one of the treatments.

614 That sounds like a Mexican thing my brother does where he fries or broils it until it's crisp. For tacos. Forgot what it's called.

Finally got around to checking my mexican cookbook and it says the straightup dried shredded meat is machaca and shredded beef is ropa vieja...

You all can have them. Enjoy!

620 When he was but an infant, Little had a sore throat. Poor guy was miserable and mom was panicked. I dipped one of his baby spoons in a jar of honey, placed in in his wailing mouth, and serenity was restored. He head-butted my chest and was immediately asleep.

621 620: Cowboy funnies book on remedies. For a sore throat blow cayenne pepper into throat through a straw. This was not only cured the condition but prevented a child from ever getting another sore throat

622 If I understand the chart the right hand column indicated the percent of deaths to cases reported.
It's interesting.

Of course, there are places, like the west bank, whose accuracy is ... I don't have words.

623 SO...what's the weirdest and most out of place cuisine you have ever seen?
---------------
When in Ixtapa, Mexico we went north a few miles to Troncones, they are both on the Pacific Ocean. Very primitive, the village of maybe 400 had no phone service at the time, early 2000s.

We found a beach bar/restaurant that had a chef who cut all his beef like Americans. You could get a real strip or sirloin which you couldn't find elsewhere. Nice to find.

624 Italian, French, & Mexican restaurants in Hong Kong, early Eighties.

The first two were good. The last, not so much.

625 I've done sous vide pulled pork 4 or 5 times. I did it at 165. First time I did 30 hrs and it was way too mushy. I found 20 hours to be better.
I tried smoking it before the sous vide, but obviously I don't have a real smoker or I wouldn't be messing with sous vide. So I used my gas grill and a wood chip smoker box and it's always a huge hassle, either on fire or not smoking. Skipped the smoking last time and it was still fine

627 Try an Instapot pressure cooker. Superb pulled pork in two hours.
