Food Thread: A New Year's Brisket And Cast-Iron Pan Pizza?
Life Is Grand!

JBrisket.jpg

Ah...Rosh Hashanah brisket!

Which got me thinking about traditional holiday foods that have achieved an almost religious significance in many faiths. I can't think of more than a few foods that are mandated by Jewish religious practice (matzoh, wine, and...?), but there are dozens that are absolutely mandatory if you want to keep the peace with your mother or great aunt.

And that's okay, because every once and a while it is fun to make the classics. I bought a 15 pound packer brisket and spent 20 minutes trimming it in preparation for splitting the point and the flat. My original plan was to cook the flat and sous vide the point and then smoke it. Because that sounds awesome! But then I panicked about the possibility of the flat being too lean, and Chez Dildo does not tolerate 'lean" very well.

Anyway, I cooked it yesterday, and I must brag and say that the brisket was so tender I had to lift it out of the oval Dutch oven with my hands (in gloves), because I was afraid it would fall apart if I used utensils. And the sauce is spectacular!

But the critics arrive at 6:00PM today, and theirs is the only opinion that matters.

And they had better lie if it isn't good...

Happy New Year!

This is from the CDC Food Safety home page.
Challenges in Food Safety

Sometimes the foods we love and count on for good health are contaminated with germs that cause sickness and can even be deadly. More progress is needed to protect people and reduce foodborne illness in America.

New challenges to food safety will continue to emerge, largely because of:


  • Changes in our food production and supply, including more imported foods.
  • Changes in the environment leading to food contamination.
  • Better detection of multistate outbreaks.
  • New and emerging bacteria, toxins, and antibiotic resistance.
  • Changes in consumer preferences and habits.
  • Changes in the tests that diagnose foodborne illness.

It's a fascinating glimpse into the minds of the idiotic, politically-driven drones who inhabit our government departments.

Two of those "challenges" are actually good things, one of them is environmentalist nonsense, one can be eased with rational public policy, and two don't matter at all and should not be the purview of the CDC.

So out of six major points, just one should be important to the CDC. New and emerging bacteria, toxins, and antibiotic resistance is indeed a big deal, and they could be working with producers to decrease the use of antibiotics in livestock, which is probably a big driver of resistance. But their top-down diktats based on supposition (remember the baby food plant) rather than hard data is the norm rather than the exception, so we are going to have to deal with that issue for a very long time.

******

temp graph.jpg

That's the graph of the temperature of a spatchcocked chicken on the grill (325 degrees with the top closed). The probe is in the breast, and my goal is 155 degrees, which turns out great for all but the smallest chickens. I am not sure whether a consistent increase makes the food taste better, but it is certainly gratifying to see!

I have proselytized ad nauseam about the importance of knowing your cooking temperatures, and that graph is a great example of excellent data. It is generated by a Thermoworks probe transmitting via BlueTooth to their app. It works reasonably well, although I wish it were WiFi based rather than BlueTooth, but in the grand scheme of things it is amazingly convenient. I can check the temperature without going outside. And you know what going outside does!

But knowing the temperature isn't just neat. It allows one to plan the meal better. Foods cook at different rates...even similar weight chickens will cook slightly faster or slower depending on...um...hydration probably, but definitely the phases of the moon. And commodity chickens tend to have bigger breasts and smaller thighs and legs, so that changes cooking time a bit.

So grab a probe, stick it in your meat, and learn something about cooking. it will make you a better cook, and even if you don't learn a damned thing, you will look professional with a temperature probe in your pocket.

******

Ok...this looks good. I like pizza, I absolutely adore sausage, and fennel and sausage go marvelously. Hell, it's even in cast-iron, which is easy to use!

fennelpizza.jpg

Cast-Iron Pizza with Fennel and Sausage looks like a pretty straightforward recipe, although I am disturbed by it calling for commercial dough and sauce. The dough is easy to make, and the sauce? Yeah, I guess out of the jar is okay, but homemade really isn't tough, and it sure does taste better.

******

I mentioned Ricotta Cheese Cake last week, and WeeKreekFarmGirl came through like a champ!

Well...her mom came through like a champ...

In case you want to make this ricotta cheesecake, here it is in my mothers hand. Only have to cook it two hours but cool it 4, some how I did have that it takes 6 hours in my head. Last time I made it I did have to cook it more until the knife came out clean but I had a poxy oven at the time. It remains my favorite cheesecake of all time, and no other cheesecake will do. I am not sure the origin, but my mother was notorious for bribing kitchen staff to steal the recipes of things she liked.

A "poxy oven?"

******

For every good food article I have to wade through about a dozen of just this sort of blathering bullshit.
Farewell to the Massive Espresso Machine
"But more importantly, what does its departure say about what we're really craving with every cup of coffee?"

What kind of nonsense is that? I can tell you with a vast degree of accuracy (97.4%) that what people crave with every cup of coffee is a nice shot of caffeine without a load of bullshit from a tatted-up gender studies major behind the counter. Just shut the fuck up and make me an espresso. And I don't care whether the guts of the machine is above or below the counter, or how sleek the handles are. I care that you have done your job and kept the machine clean so the coffee doesn't taste sour.

This kind of self-centered new-age crap is why I have less and less tolerance for most food and cooking magazines. Food is not a vehicle with which to virtue signal. Food is an elemental pleasure, or fuel, and personally I don't care which one you choose.

I'm conflicted!

Just send me oysters. Lots of oysters, and I will provide special dispensation for those without taste who insist upon maple syrup with their French Toast. And pork rib roasts from the front end of the pig where all the good and fatty meat lives, 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 the rest of you are off the hook with maple syrup and French Toast: I'm still watching you! And I am watching you perverts who shake Manhattans and keeping a list for the Burning Times.

My masonry skills are, how you say, under used.

14 It's like this for me. I don't do sous vide. I don't make a lot of the things I see here. No insult to the proprietor, of course.
I live alone. Quite happily. Sous vide is great for those of you who actually plan and prepare in advance. I'm much more a, "What's in the fridge that's handy?" guy.
I make good lasagna, chili, cassoulet and goulash. All of which would horrify most of you but, I like it.
Being alone, I'm also reduced to making my own sammiches. Yesterday, I made a batch of hot browns for the freezer. After eating a couple for QC purposes only, of course. Joe's Special is also on the agenda soon. Maybe next. That said, I love the food thread CBD and enjoy reading and drooling.

Thanks! I appreciate that you read and participate even though you aren't a lunatic like I am.

If you ever decide to start planning your meals, Sous Vide is fantastic for that. You can portion them however you want in the vacuum bags and freeze individual portions until ready to go. They also last a lot longer in the refrigerator after they are cooked in the water bath because they are essentially sterilized!

17 My son bought a pizza oven. His wife is a fantastic cook/baker and makes batches of pizza dough and freezes them and they love pizza. Expects a big brick oven. But, it is a small stainless steel thing, kind of like a flat grill. Heats to very high temperature pretty quickly and makes fantastic pizza as I can personally attest.

18 I finally got my new ovens hooked up and running on Thursday night, unfortunately on Friday I discovered a plum size lump in my very sore lower right abdomen. After much consultation I ended up at the ER on Friday night and had surgery for not one but two hernias at about 1:30 in the morning. Per doctor's orders I can't lift up anything heavier than a cup of coffee, so I won't be breaking in the ovens quite yet. Slides plate by USB port, somebody feed me, please!!!

20 Eagles win over, now I actually have to cook!

Since it was a Safeway shop with my 20% off coupon, it's gonna be:

- Oven baked fresh salmon with lemon and dill (I've done so much pesto salmon, and I'm just jonesing for the old traditional with olive oil, a whole lemon's juice, dill all over, and s&p for 2.4 lbs of salmon)
- Braised cabbage with apples and onions - apples are REALLY cheap, and I have leftover cabbage from the uber-cheap Hmart shop last weekend
- Green grapes
- Fresh Italian bread (the youngest said we eat too much French bread - the 2nd youngest hates sourdough - so this is the 3rd option)

Dessert is the Church bake sale for everyone but me - smores cupcakes and oreo cupcakes. My son was impressed someone toasted the meringue top for the smore cupcake and put oreos and gummy worms on the oreo cupcake - thus, $10 was donated to secure these items!

21 Thanks, CBD. I have a friend here who does do sous vide. He loves it and it's terrific, no matter what he makes. I'm old though and may not live long enough for the wait time. I also screw up and cook when I get hungry.
My mother cured me of pickles. It was a very bad day.

50 Although speaking of livers, when I was being cheap last week (or better yet, employing full nose to tail cooking), I saved the innards packet from my roast chicken pre-cooking and then made them into an offal grits dish the next day with 3 types of sauteed onions (vidalia, white, green), some chopped greens, and the gravy I had made for the chicken the day before with extra broth and the offal sauteed and then chopped and thrown back in (and extra s&p, although not much b/c the gravy carried a lot of that).

It was awesome (and really creamy per my kids - thanks gravy). Now, I did make a good gravy (if I can boast), but it was an uber cheap way to get a 2nd meal (lunch, though) when I knew the kids would eat all my dang roasted chicken the 1st day...

69 Actually, the chicken livers were the best part. Now you would call it pate.

I usually glaze my pork tenderloin. Sear it on top of the stove in cast iron pan. Then switch to glass baking dish because the glaze makes a bit of a mess. I use blackberry jam, sweet /spicy mustard, dark balsamic, evoo and a bit of brown sugar into a paste. Spread on the tenderloin and maybe 20 minutes in the oven. I like it a little pink. Doesn't need a sauce.

You can use it in place of any cooking oil. I like it for sautéing chicken, especially in something Indian-ish, or for roasting taters or other veggies in the oven.

73 Hey CBD, what do you think of In State locally produced bills that would allow butchering, but not under USDA, but under the individual states regulations.

Posted by: LiveFreeOrDie at September 25, 2022 04:28 PM (Z4oqp)

I think that the prohibition against local butchering is driven by the big slaughterhouses.

My guess is that a small local slaughterhouse is probably cleaner and safer than the monster facilities that butcher animals from hundreds of miles around

The brisket is lovely, and as it is one of my favorite cuts of meat, I'll have to try it.

Question, and forgive me if it's impertinent: are there purveyors of prepared Jewish holiday meals like there are for Thanksgiving and Christmas? I know Green's bakery in New York makes pastries for Purim and Hannukah and ships them (and their chocolate Hamantaschen are amazing), but what about meals?

88 Hy, fudies. Mmmmm. Good-looking pizza.

So…

When we left peanut butter behind (I class peanuts with soy), we tried various alternatives - almond, cashew, sunflower seed. All are pretty pricey, especially almond. If you could even find 'em.

My brilliant lady began making our own sunflower seed butter, and that's not only much cheaper, it's better than commercial. Bag of seeds, oil, blend to desired consistency.

Whoa, the chef finds my brief recipe inadequate. Says she: We use Good Sense™ roasted, salted sunf seeds because they're usually fresher. (Me: Which may be because we buy so much?) One pound of seeds to 2TBSP of oil - sunflower oil if available, but we have had to use avocado oil lately.

Whoever designed the Cuisinart™ probably never tried to clean it.

92 So, ways you can tell people are cutting back on their groceries - they've stopped buying sauces and are sticking to the actual meats/carbs/fruit/veg. When I went down the sauce aisle at Safeway today, 1/2 the aisle was clearanced out - and that's not much of an exaggeration. I got a shrimp taco sauce 1/2 off, a Carolina mustard BBQ sauce for 80% off (a steal - and I've never cooked with it), and even Tabasco for 1/2 off. I would have bought more, but I figure if I wait, it may actually get cheaper (this Safeway has now gone up to 90% off on some "food but not filling food" products in the last month)...and there were a TON of options.

I mean, it's either no one's buying...or they are shrinking all the bottles again...or both...

95 My usual first breakfast is yogurt, sunbutter, blueberries, and honey. Too health-food freaky? It's like a PB&J with a glass of milk, right?

It's also something I can, by habit, put together before I'm fully awake, while the coffee brews. I rarely confuse the cinnamon with the cayenne pepper anymore.

Blueberries are certainly variable in quality! (Noting this is a First World Problems that we have any fresh blueberries year 'round at all!!)

We expect and forgive a certain percentage of bad berries, but last week we got a pint which was 75 to 90% bad from the hometown grocer, actually returned it. This week, the euro grocer has really great berries. Hardly a clunker in the bunch. Big, too. (We're stocking up.)

We found a grocery down in BigTown that carries Santa Fe style green chile. Milady mixes the hot and mild, with some onions & secret ingredients.

Chile verde goes with anything — can you tell we lived in Santa Fe awhile once? Land of Enchantment.™ You can check out any time you like but you can never leave.

The upshot overall lowdown porpoise of all this is, I made up a snack.

Looking for a snack in my clunky guy way, I decided to put together some rice, green chili, and sunbutter. Stirred, nuked, add butter and salt, bacon crumbles if you got 'm. Nom.

Sound too weird? It's got a taste of its own.

Better yet, even with the cost of shipping across the country, it was half the price Amazon would have charged.

146 I have good news, and bad news. The bad news is that I was going to be in Miami starting tomorrow, but that’s been canceled. No cubanos and Cuban pastries this week for me.

The good news is that means I can make some “frozen egg nog” from a 1934 Borden pamphlet tonight. Raw eggs and sweetened condensed milk, I’m looking forward to eating it tomorrow.

I intend to eat very poorly over the next few days. Cheesedog popcorn for dinner tomorrow and possibly even chocolate chip cookie pie though I may change my mind on the latter and have something from an old Brazil nuts pamphlet.

148 I think that the prohibition against local butchering is driven by the big slaughterhouses.

My guess is that a small local slaughterhouse is probably cleaner and safer than the monster facilities that butcher animals from hundreds of miles around

oooh, that's a good idea. I have a mustard chicken recipe* that the kids love. I might try that with hot dogs.

* "recipe" is a bit of a stretch. You pat the chicken down with mustard and dredge it in either bread crumbs or crumbled up potato chips, and then sprinkle it with a 1:1 lemon juice and water mixture ten minutes before it's done cooking.

The kids absolutely love it, though. As do adults, but the kids are always the hard ones to please.

229 Yes, one melone and many meloni. These are not watermelons which would be cocomero/cocomeri or anguria/angurie, but cantaloupes.

230 I had a discussion once if the name Melanie was from honey as in "Miel", or from from the Greek word for dark, "Melas"

Melanie was not impressed. In. The. Least.

231 224 My wife loves this gadget for opening anything from nail polish to Mason jars. Might be interesting to the cooks on here. It works great.

I use this. No installation. It's serrated and has never failed. Was much cheaper when I bought it years ago.

232 But of course the Big Flucking Deal is she is populist and pro MIGA, thinks unelected (globalist/terrorist) bureaucrats from wherever should not be in control of Europe, certainly not of Italy.

Italy is claimed to have a long history of backing and allying with any country that can guarantee regular and sufficient energy for its industries.
At the moment that is not the EU

233 That gotta-be-a-Bee coffee shop article is why I never go to coffee shops anymore. I’m a coffee snob so I buy my own high-quality coffee and make it myself. The last thing I want is a fucking “connection” with whoever is making coffee at a shop. The very thought of it gives me the creeps. Unless of course she’s hot, and the connection is getting her number. But that’s not what this insufferable twit is talking about. We are doomed.

234 180 Making pork tenderloins tonight and I need a sauce. Suggestions?

Hot applesauce.

There’s an Alton Brown recipe for applesauce we like to make and serve warm. Blend Granny Smith and a couple red apples that cook well. It’s even good on ice cream.

235 Debbie DS, I also got the diagnosis on my CAT scan. I have been having various digestive issues. Lately I have had a painful hernia. Mind you I have had four hernia surgeries, although three were on the same issue.

First, I have an abdominal hernia on both sides of my last hernia repair. This is the painful one, but not the big issue.

The bottom half of my stomach is in my chest cavity. This is a hiatal hernia, specifically a Giant Esophogeal Hernia. Judging from the way my belly gurgles this has been true for some years.

It is rare enough that the VA has no surgeons who know about it. The GI docs said, "This is a mechanical issue. We don't do those." So, I'm off to find a barber in the Phoenix area who does.

None of this explains my other GI issues. For now all the tests are negative, so drink your fiber drink and wait for the knife.

236 I don't have a sweet tooth, so sweet sauces for pork chops and ham don't do anything for me. But cornichon pickles in a mustard sauce are good with either. So is bearnise sauce.
