Food Thread: Mustard Mustard Everywhere And Not a Drop To Drink Use...

grilledchick.jpg

It was damned cold here last night, and some idiot decided that grilled chicken was the perfect meal for our dinner guests. In fact...two grilled chickens! And some pork ribs. At least the ribs were Sous Vide, so all I had to do was put some honey and then dry rub on them before finishing them on the grill, but still. it was cold!

But this wasn't my first rodeo, so I spatchcocked the chickens, then salted them well before I planned to cook. It is a poor-man's brine, and it works fantastically. Then I had to decide what the hell I was going to do with the chickens, and that is the tough part. If it were up to me I would make a roaring-hot marinade with a ton of cilantro and honey (or brown sugar or agave syrup), and serve it with good beer.

But I don't get to choose. So...one chicken got my house BBQ rub, and one chicken got a marinade of parsley/Dijon/agave/garlic/shallot/thyme/Mexican oregano/ancho chile/olive oil.

It took longer to type that than to make it.

On to the grill over indirect heat at about 375 degrees. I have a Bluetooth thermometer so I didn't have to go outside more than a couple of times. As many of you know, grills tend not to maintain temperature in cold weather, so it took a bit of adjustment. But I was able to drink my Old Fashioned in the warmth of the house, and really, that is all that matters!

The spatchcocking serves two important functions. The first is that it evens out the chicken so it cooks at approximately the same rate; no more overcooked breast and underdone thighs in Chez Dildo!

The second function is that the chicken seems to brown more evenly. These two came out perfect, and I didn't flip them...even once.

But the best part was getting the older brat to finish the ribs! And he did a fine job, so I will happily cede that to him. At least in cold weather.

******

The pinch-faced scolds of the progressive left are coming for everything that is even remotely pleasurable. And that includes food. By no stretch of the imagination is the media-driven trend toward fake meat anything other than the angry fits of a political movement that is furious that Americans consume meat in abundance. They want to drive omnivores into the dustbin of history, and they are good at getting what they want.

Anyone try that crap? It stinks. There is nothing quite like the bite of a good steak or the crispy unctuousness of a strip of bacon or the deliciousness of a good burger with some melted cheese on top. They are the pleasures that we have earned by our hard work, our intelligence, our opposable thumbs and the God-given gifts of intellect.

Fight it. Tell your supermarket manager that you tried it and it sucked. Turn the labels in so nobody sees it, try a sample at whatever market still gives them out and proclaim loudly, "Oh my God, what is this shit? Where can I spit it out?"

******

I use a lot of Dijon mustard. Enough that I buy it in bulk. Roland is a old (originally French) food importing company that seems to nail the price/quality calculation very well. It's rarely the best stuff (although the mustard is superb), but it is always at least good. For instance, if I am making a Caesar salad dressing I'll use their anchovies (or anchovy paste), but if I am serving whole anchovies in a dish I will use a better brand.

My favorite supermarket closed a couple of years ago, and so my easy source for many things, including Roland Dijon in the large jar, went poof!

mustard44.jpg

Yeah...it's almost empty and I only have one more jar. Help! So I figured, why not try some other brands? How different could they be? It's not a complicated recipe.

mustard55.jpg

And I was wrong. This brand was thinner, unbelievably salty, and just sort of boring. And I stupidly didn't taste it before I made a pan sauce, so while the food was good, it was, shall we say, aggressively salted.

What's the lesson here? Well, first, don't eat Pavés du Mail at Chez Dildo if you don't like salt, and the second one is to taste new products before you cook with them.

******

I like dips...I guess. Hummus is a dip. Uh...and that's about it at Chez Dildo. So I am unsure whether I would ever make this and plop it down on the coffee table with some crackers or toast points or pita.

But I will tell you what I would do with it! Actually...two things. The first is use it as a dressing on a salad. Thin it a bit and toss it with some chunky stuff? I'll bet that would be great. And the second thing is use it on lamb. This sounds like the perfect condiment to serve with lamb shoulder. Or hell, even as a marinade!

Whipped goat cheese dip with bacon, thyme and honey

This is from commenter "Bitter Clinger." I have absolutely nothing to do with looking for fried rat recipes on the internet. It's all him.

The scariest thing is his comment about the video:

This technique for Crispy Fried Rat with Garlic-Chile Lime Sauce looks fantastic!

******

Homemade pickles (and anything else pickled) are great. Usually far better than the mushy crap that passes for pickles in most supermarkets. And the best thing about making your own (other than how unbelievably inexpensive they are) is that you can tailor them to your palate. No more overly sweet or overly tangy! Make them exactly the way you want.

Alton Brown's Bread and Butter Pickles

Another thing about pickled vegetables is that they are great for munching throughout the day without adding significantly (or at all) to one's waistline. Because not all of us are 29 and perfectly proportioned.

******

One of the phrases that is guaranteed to make me froth at the mouth, stalk around like a maniac and throw things, is, "That's really bad for you."

No. No it isn't. Food is neither bad nor good. Eat enough Kale and you will probably die. Don't eat enough steak or bacon and you will wish you had.

Seriously, food is at its simplest just fuel. Sure, there are micronutrients that Americans get in abundance, but fat, protein and carbohydrates make up most of what we eat. So that supposedly terrible food you should never eat may not be the greatest idea for an everyday thing, but lighten the f&$k up and enjoy yourself.

Stay fit and active, try to maintain a normal weight, eat a wide variety of foods, and all will be well for most people. I cut carbs because it makes it much easier for me to maintain my ideal weight, and it makes other things better too. But whatever works for you is far better than the perfect diet that you don't enjoy or simply doesn't do what you want it to do.

Brussels Sprouts that aren't as tough as trees, 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 BBQ chicken is hard to pull off. It usually comes out tough and dry when I do it on the grill. Been experimenting with partially cooking it in the oven and then finishing it up on the grill to get that crispy skin and doneness.

19 So, at my friend's monthly dinner for us, we have 13 people with 9 kids and acres of allergies (including pollen allergies that means uncooked fruit are out).

So, every month, I try a new roasted fruit out on my friends and their kids, and I finally found an absolute home run. If you'd have told me cayenne was more popular than cinnamon as a spice for kids with allergies, I'd have been surprised...

But roasted fresh diced pineapple (1 inch size spear), dusted with cayenne, and drizzled with honey and vegan butter was a homerun. It was hilarious, seeing kids faces realize it was spicy on the 1st bite, start coughing or turning red, and then saying they wanted more.

2 whole pineapples (including godzilla-pineapple) were gone.

And now I know to leave off cinnamon and try some new crazy spices...

26 Tonight, none of my kids are eating at the same time b/c they all have activities.

So, I have Aldi's pork meatballs with maple and bacon in my crockpot with diced onion, BBQ sauce, more (real) maple syrup and Aldi's bacon bits. I have plain roasted cauliflower to soak up the sauce with sliced Italian bread, too. And then sliced Cara Cara oranges and red grapes. So, anyone can eat when they need...

I feel a little bad b/c it's not the totally most cohesive dinner, but every kid can serve themselves and it can just sit on while I watch the game and this thread, so win/win...

Once you start roasting veg, you'll never stop. My spouse prefers all his veg "cooked", so I go to roasted veg a lot (although not ALWAYS b/c there are other ways to cook them that don't involve microwaves or steaming - which he also doesn't like).

Are you sure the parsnip was like the potato and not the turnip - more mature turnips tend to taste that way - parsnips tend to taste closest to an earthy carrot...

Once the coals were spread out, the chicken and ribs cooked pretty well, if a bit longer. Best part was the heat was just enough to keep the edge off. Bier was good and by the time I was done there were 4 other guys out there wanting to use the coals when I was done.

62 LOL! I bought that brand of Dijon and threw the crap out. Think I might have gotten at Trader Joe's, don't remember. There actually is a lot of crappy-ass Dijon out there - but that one was particularly insulting. I rarely see Roland brand, so stick with Grey Poupon if nothing better is available. Which is pretty much defacto in the age of Brandon.

65 I do mainly two things with boneless pork shoulder. Cure and smoke it for buckboard bacon. Comes out as kind of halfway between traditional and Canadian bacon. We prefer it to either.

Other way is in cubes in chili verde. I'm not even a big pork fan, but it's a favorite. I keep some in the freezer all the time.

Tim Meadows would tell stories of epic cookouts- one I remember was, he was in the navy and the submarine he was on surfaced in the Arctic ocean, so he set up his grill on deck and started cooking

I grew up in the Great Age of Dips.

No Sunday was complete without us watching the Cowboys without Mom whipping up a big bowl of
Blue Cheese Dip, or
Green Chile Dip, or
The Grand Arch Duke of Dips - Guacamole.

Other dips came and went but those were the Three Staples of Dipdom. And really not just Sunday. But, weekends in general or whenever we all got together.

If Dad was grilling steaks that night, well, that made things just perfect didn't it?

In fact, start cheap, and if that works you are all set!

Posted by: vmom stabby stabby stabby stabamillion at January 23, 2022 04:17 PM (lCui1)


One of my favorite summer recipes. I marinade/brine the shoulder for 24-48 hours in a mix of fruit juice (preferably mango/papaya) herbs and salt. Then I cover it in rub and smoke it all day or overnight depending on when it gets served - so yeah about 12-14 hours. I then pull it and serve with mango-avocado salsa, and a sweet/sour BBQ sauce I make with roasted onions and apple cider vinegar - put on flour or corn tortillas. Every party I've had it gets wiped out. Also works great as sliders for those with tortillaphobia.

86 I want CBD to know that I used to poo-poo all his sous vide talk, I would read it but think, eh? I got an insta pot last month and it had a sous vide setting. I was going to do chicken, just boneless skinless chicken, nothing earth shattering, but I thought I would give the sous vide a try. I made a simple marinade and put in the chicken. When I served it to Mr. Wee Kreek he could not stop saying, "this is the absolute best chicken I have ever had". It was so tender and soft. I was a sous vide denier but no more. I have yet to get to the pork and beef, don't worry I will get there, but I have to say, just plain chicken is a revelation in the sous vide machine. So to the rest of you who haven't tried it, don't be like me. Don't mock it until you have tried it. Thanks CBD, for helping me think outside the box and into the sous vide.

You make a tart crust, spread Dijon mustard on the bottom of the crust. A layer of fresh tomatoes, salt, pepper, whatever fresh herbs you have on hand. Drizzle some olive oil and slices of goat chees on top and drizzle with honey. 425 oven for about 30 minutes. It's delicious.

Why do they call it "plant based"? Not vegetable, but plant. I'm not fooled for a second. These bastards walk out into the backyard, pull up weeds, leaves, twigs, bark all ground up and throw a bunch of cumin and salt in and call it good.

If plants are so awesome to eat, then make plant flavored food that looks like plants. Don't try to give it the texture, look and taste of chicken. If you've got a jones for a chicken wing, maybe mother nature is telling you something?

116 I made fried rice the other night, mainly because I had a pot of rice in the fridge that was getting old and I didn't know what else to do with it. Quite easy to do - put plenty of butter in a skillet, pour in your rice, fry until it starts to get brown, and then crack an egg or two into it (depending on your volume of rice). Stir it all up vigorously while it cooks, and voila! (if you want to be really fancy, toss some chopped green onions in)

I noticed some time ago that this works best with rice that's been sitting in your fridge for 3 days or so, *not* freshly cooked rice. When I figured that out, suddenly I understood the entire reason for fried rice.

It's what I do with my takeout white rice containers from Chinese...it's better turned into fried rice that had fresh.

If you wanna go nuts, on top of the green onion, get some soy, hoisin, sesame seed, sesame oil, and any roasted veg you can dice that's also leftover in the fridge...and any leftover proteins you can dice up...that's called "combo fried rice" and you pay $12 for it at the Chinese place, but at your own, it's just "leftovers" and "free" b/c you were tossing them anyway...

PS - And those with dairy issues - you can start this in vegan butter or olive oil and add a touch of sesame oil for flavor...

137 Got one of these butter knives in my Christmas stocking and thought it was a little ridiculous, but I've been using it for toast and it's amazing. One edge is serrated so you can cut bread or cold butter, the other side is lined with little holes so you can scrape tiny ribbons of cold butter that would otherwise be too hard to spread on toast, and at the tip there is a hole for making a larger ribbon. Took a little bit to get the knack, but now I love it. I'm not sure if this is the brand I got, but it looks like this:

That's the one good thing about those Costco $5 chickens (how long in the age of Brandon will that last?). I buy one, get sandwiches for a few days, dinner for a couple of nights, and then throw the rest in a pressure cooker and freeze the stock.

I'm doing pot-roast tonight. Again. Bought one at the store yesterday for $5 off, so a nice big chuck was $11. I live near a huge mushroom farm (not downwind, luckily) and they have almost every damned mushroom there is for much cheaper than the market price. So, a pound of just picked cremini is $6 (over actually, they just eyeball it). They also have Portobello, white button, shitake, lions mane, trumpet and several others all between $5 and $10/lb. I've been trying different ways to prepare the lion's mane - and protip: it does NOT taste like crab or lobster. These people have never had crab or lobster, apparently.

144 I know nothing about Rye - any favorite to use when mixing?

Posted by: Tonypete at January 23, 2022 04:24 PM (mD/uy) {/i]

In all honesty, the best rye (okay, one of the very best ryes) is Rittenhouse.

It's also one of the cheapest and weighs in at 100 proof. Stands up for itself in a cocktail. So, it's perfect for mixing.

Try it first. If you don't like Rittenhouse, you probably don't like rye.

145 I fear that I am committing sacrilege, even as I sit here -- I'm making sous vide beef brisket. Never made anything that took 36 hours before, and that's just phase 1. The basic idea is to get all that temperature-finicky softening done in the boil-in-a-bag, cool to room temperature, then finish on the grill, to get some smoke in there. We'll see.

Just remember to bring a quarter for your cart (you get it back when you return it) and your own bags (unless you want to buy theirs)...and plan to bag your own groceries.

Part of the reason it's so cheap is you do a lot of the labor...a tradeoff I don't mind making, especially now that I have to pay for bags at any grocery I go to if I don't bring them.

148 Don't know if it qualifies as "pickles" but my family loves the spicy cucumbers they serve at Din Tai Fung in Los Angeles. As we're in Montana, we have to try and make our food cravings at home.

Found this recipe online, and they are fantastic! I could skip the rest of the meal and only eat the cucumbers. The only problem is getting Persian cukes in Montana.

Living in the SF Bay Area, I've gotten used to keeping grocery bags in my trunk. They charge you a dime a bag otherwise. Of course, when covid panic first hit, they wouldn't allow you to bring bags into the store (yes, a guard would stop you!), but then they had to pass some stupid law to not charge you since you had no choice. Magically, bringing your own bags in was good again - and a lot of people were so freaked out they wanted nice, new, clean bags and happily forked out for them.

Anyone know how to "manage" non-homogenized milk? I discovered it at the local grocer in our new hometown. My tummy likes it better than regular milk.

The cream rises to the top, leaving what I assume is skim milk below. It also tends to clump and stay in the jug when I pour it. Either that, or it pours with the milk and you get a glass of lumpy milk. I like when I can get to the cream with a spoon for coffee or a bowl of berries.

I don't even know what I don't know about making the best use of non-homogenized milk, but I feel like I don't have the hang of it yet.

Any ideas?

Wonderful stuff - if you can find it! Buy it when you see it. Drink it on the rocks - lovely. If you make Manhattans with it, go light on the other ingredients. Yum.

228 Many years ago I was setting up an apartment in another city, where I would live while I worked for two weeks, and then fly home to spend a long weekend. As an IT consultant I normally wore a business suit and tie, and so dressed I was walking from the office to the apartment at the end of day one, carrying a large bag of groceries.

Suddenly a car with two young couples pulled to the curb next to me, and the girl in the front passenger seat asked me "I say, sir - could I trouble you for a jar of Grey Poupon?!"

So I reached into my bag, pulled out the Maillard I had just bought, and handing it to her I replied "There you are, Madam", and continued on my way! Since we we're heading in opposite directions, we soon parted ways forever.

This actually happened.

232 My wife bakes our pita - she says the key is using a pizza stone that's *very* hot - and it, with a good hummus, is delightful. No, we haven't made our own, though it's very easy to do, but some store-bought varieties are quite good. Our favorite was the Tribe brand's "40 Spices", which, alas, disappeared from our supermarkets years ago.

As for herb gardens, we have a lovely herb garden with real honest-to-God herbs in it; far better than the stuff that comes in the little tins in the store. I know is coming for real when I can make the first cutting of chives for my morning eggs. But what do you have against basil, the King of Herbs? Home-made pesto with garden basil is one of the true pleasures of life.

===============
The texture of FRIED RICE can be improved by spreading leftover refrigerated rice in a single layer on a flat baking sheet, placed in the freezer for a couple hours, then stored in a ziplok bag (still frozen) until ready to stir-fry. Even better is when the rice is just slightly undercooked before chilling and freezing. Similar to undercooking pasta when it will finish cooking in a soup or casserole. I actually cook large batches of rice this way then freeze in multiple smaller portions.

275 The nearest Aldi outlets to us are in Pflugerville, and in Victoria - each about an hour and a half drive away, in either direction. We love Aldi - the quality of the goods is great and the prices are about the best around ... and yes, because you do your own bagging, etc. We stock up, whenever events or business take us in those directions.
Some of the same brands and quality can be found at Trader Joes' although that outlet has a more ... yuppier atmosphere, and not quite the same low prices.
What - you don't make your own mustards? Not hard - powdered mustard, and black or yellow mustard seeds, available at any Middle Eastern grocery, a splash of vinegar, (or even dead champagne - that is, champagne which has gone flat) soak overnight with whatever spices and additions tickle your fancy, run through a blender and there you are.
Although I used to get a lovely whole-grain French

Veg burgers that don't try to meat are amazing. My favorite veg burger was at Universal Orlando on Fast Food Blvd when the chef made me a black bean burger with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and guac (somehow that thing had a kick). My spouse actually preferred that one to his beef burger, although that's not totally fair b/c the chef made mine b/c she was new and didn't know what all milk ingredient components are (and it was Covid, and there wasn't anyone to ask, but me, so we looked at the ingredient guides together).

Freeze basil with some water in ice cube trays and save until summer. Makes for a beautiful and tasty cocktail or just a glass of ice water.

304 One of my favorite stories:

I worked with a great group of engineers that included a Chinese fellow who was very sociable with Americans. Once we went to a Chinese place for lunch. So one fellow asked Chen the inevitable question if the food was anything like "real" Chinese food.


Chen looked up and held up his hands about a foot apart and said "Yes, but American rat is much fatta."

He was a very funny guy.

Thing is, you have to be a retard to eat this crap.

By the time they add all the fat and chemicals and finish processing it, Beyond Fake is actually less healthy for you than just eating a regular hamburger or whatever,

and there's nothing unhealthy about a hamburger. The unhealthiness comes into play because of gross unnaturalness of these Karen Brand Joyless Scold Plant Products.

Carefully rinse brown rice. Let it soak in the bowl for a bit, maybe 10 minutes. Drain.
Whatever recipe you used for white rice, increase the cooking time by about 15-20%.

Posted by: Nova local at January 23, 2022 06:02 PM (exHjb)

The Rams and Packers performed exactly like I thought they would against the 49-ers - who are basically using a second stringer QB on most real super bowl contending teams in Garoppolo. The NFC has pretty mediocre teams this year - the Bills and Chiefs are the cream of the crop.

They present the rats to us, boil the rats, skin the rats, deep-fry the rats, and eat the rats. All the while smiling and being proud of the great delicious food they are cooking for us.

I guess I know what will haunt my dreams tonight.

542 9 I love dijon mustard...it's perfect on or in so many things - chicken, salmon, pretzels, hot dogs, meatloaf (if you haven't tried it, don't knock it - different mustards in meatloaf can be spectacular), etc...

But, I'm not a connoisseur - Aldi's dijon at under $1/bottle works for me b/c it just goes so fast here anyway (it's my spouse's sandwich topping, too)...
----
Agree with Aldi's, also their brown mustard is excellent, and I love it on hotdogs. My first taste of mustard was as a very young 7-yearold in an English boarding school (Kenya) and using English mustard, tiny spoon and all, - just mustard powder, water, salt and a little vinegar (maybe) and I still love that really hot and spicy but unadulterated taste.

I looked recently and in the bar condiment sections around here you can't find pickled mushrooms anymore.
