Food Thread: Rice? Lowly Rice? And Corn? Even Lowlier!

shrimprisotto.jpg

Rice is great! And there are all sorts too. There are perfumed rices and short-grained and long-grained rices and all thousands of ways to prepare them. No wonder, it is one of the most valuable food crops in the world (#1 according to the UN). So lots of people eat lots of rice, but I rarely eat it, because my preferred dish is Risotto, and that takes a fair amount of time. And I tend to eat the entire pot and stick my head into the container to lick it clean....

So..why am I thinking about Risotto? Because I had some yesterday for lunch with a dear friend, and now I can't stop thinking about it! And to make matters worse, commenter "Doof" sent me a photo of his dinner last night, and now I have two of my favorite foods on repeat in my head!

doofgrits.jpg

Yeah...shrimp and grits, and a particularly delicious-looking version. He has promised to get the recipe and share it with the class, so keep nagging him until he coughs it up.

******

One of the ways I have improved my cooking is to buy ingredients without some plan for them. Sure, I'll look ahead and buy stuff for meals I want to make, but if I am wandering through the store and see something interesting or on sale or new, then I will probably toss it into my basket without another thought. Sometimes that bites me in the ass, but sometimes I have to stretch my cooking skills or meld a couple of recipes or techniques...and that is the fun stuff.

It doesn't have to be elegant or complex or expensive. One of our meals last week was chicken thighs with a lemon sauce. But I wanted to make the skin cracklingly crisp, and I have had only limited success with that. So I tried a different technique, and to top it off I make a quick pan sauce with loads of lemons and lemon juice. The whole thing took five minutes of prep and five minutes of active cooking. And about $3 because the thighs were on sale.

Cheap, easy, tasty, and new. I call that a success.

******

I find most eating contests to be disgusting, but this guy doesn't take himself seriously and is unfailingly polite. Plus, he's pretty funny. beardmeatsfood is strangely amusing to watch. Nothing much happens other than him eating monstrous amounts of food, but it's oddly pleasing in small doses.
******

This is loads of fun, although a bit too long for a quick peek. We try to match Churchill drink for drink... send help

And it's not nonsense. Churchill really did drink that much every day. I think the secret was moderation. never too much at once...just a lovely and consistent amount throughout the day and evening. He did okay, especially between 1940 and 1945, so perhaps his intake should be the norm!

******

Is bologna my favorite cold cut? No, but I won't scoff at it. I have had plenty of it, especially on whit bread with a big smear of mayo (Hellman's of course) and sometimes a slice of American cheese. And not that post-modern bullsh*t white stuff. All right-thinking people know that the orange stuff is the only way to go!

Time To Set The Record Straight About These Bologna Myths

Actually...I love ALL cold cuts. I want a big charcuterie platter as my last meal. Well, with a good steak. And some Risotto. A great loaf of sourdough might be nice too. And oysters! I forgot oysters!

[Hat Tip: Weasel]

******

Eat whatever foods you like cooked in whatever manner pleases you. Just don't cook a great steak to shoe-leather in front of me or I might cry.

Flap Meat...whatever the hell that is...just send it, Broccolini that isn't $6/bunch, garlic...lots of garlic! (and basil! My basil did not do well this year!), well-marbled hanger steaks and elk chops 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: so why don't you put maple syrup on your steaks and chops and chicken?

But the real culprits are those poor deluded souls who shake their Manhattans. These are are the same people who drink fine bourbon with coke, and probably shake red wine with ice too.

However, I will give dispensation to those who use maple syrup on Brussels Sprouts! I tried that last week and it worked nicely. I still prefer Agave, but still...

And yes, I used to demand fancy bourbon, but let's face it, $1,200 for a bottle of bourbon is just stupid, insulting, and a ghastly affront to most people's palates and wallets. I think the sweet spot is $40-$60 for excellent and interesting bottles, and bumping that to $100 gets you an incremental improvement in quality, but nothing mind-blowing. More than that and I think you are paying for hype and rarity, which may look good in your liquor cabinet, but doesn't translate to more quality in the bottle.

11 This is loads of fun, although a bit too long for a quick peek.

I really can't stand those guys (there are others). Every video they do is ridiculously padded, obviously to generate more revenue. I also hate people who laugh uproariously at their own jokes, which are usually not the slightest bit funny. The ads for Impractical Jokers are the worst example, but these guys aren't far behind.

If you want cocktail recipes, I suggest Anders Erickson on YT. He's a for real bartender, very personable, and his videos are shorter and broken up with time stamps into Intro, Sponsor ad (which you can just scroll through), history of the drink, the booze and assembly, and the final verdict. As you can imagine, he usually likes the cocktails he makes.

As to straight booze, there are lots of tastings out there, but I usually just default to Distiller.com for ratings by both distillers and purchasers.

They were outstanding. Possibly perfect. And they were at a bar in Wilmington, Delaware. I had to fight off some guy named Corn Pop who kept trying to snag a bite.

Seriously, they were truly great. I try S&G pretty much anywhere that has them on the menu. Including countless places in the Charleston area. I do think these are my favorite ones ever from a restaurant. (The wife of a Charleston-area moron makes them whenever I visit. Hers are outstanding!)
I got to talk to the chef before we left last night. He's from North Carolina and trained in New Orleans. He told me how he makes them. Now I just need to attempt to recreate them.

29 Couple of weeks ago I roasted a large chicken just because I wanted the smell in the house on a cold sunny day. Did up the whole shebang, roast veggies, homemade cransause. Made lots of pan gravy with the under the chicken onions and some mushrooms.
For the maybe third or fourth feeding I decided on good old chicken slop. Chopped up one of the breasts, warmed it up in a shit ton of gravy, and a lot of s&p, while the white rice cooked, then combined everything to steep for a while. Served with an accompanying shit ton of the cransause dumped right on it. Incredibly satisfying and delicious.
Ate this a lot in the younger days, canned chicken/sauce/gravy in little over Weasel's two minutes.

31 Thank you for the Food Thread CBD. I have been trying to hone my Appalachian-Asian fusion Kimchi Mac and Cheese. It is getting better with each new version. Attempt 3.0 was the best yet, proving the hypothesis that more Kimchi is better. Also playing at trying to smoke meat with my in-fancy propane grill. Again, getting better each new attempt. I have been pressure cooking my brisket piece, then putting it in the grill to smoke with mesquite chips. The last batch had some actual smoke flavor. I also try to smoke a can of Spam at the same time. SuperMayorSuperRon loves him some Spam!

Start with the chicken hot so you just need to melt the cheese b/c that will make it easier to not burn. You can't turn the heat too low b/c it won't crisp the tortilla, nor will covering the pan (you'll trap moisture which will sog things).

That said, I might also turn down the heat a touch...

72 For chicken quesadillas I cook them open face placing the (cooked and shredded) chicken on last after the cheese has begun to melt. Fold and top it off with a dollop of sour cream.
Getting the heat just right is tricky, too hot and you scorch the tortillas, too cool and it takes too long and you don't get the nice crunch.

77 1st time at a Church soup dinner - a priest came up to thank me for bringing something gluten free for another parishioner. This happened after 30 minutes before, I had to insist what they were serving with my dish's name was not my dish, and that mattered b/c it was the only allergy safe dish of the night (thankfully, I was very early in the dinner line thanks to my kid). So, I felt much better that I had insisted they take the sign down til they found my food (and put the right sign to it) so they didn't serve the wrong food to people thinking it was okay.

Also of note - fresh fruit gets demolished at Church soup dinners. If you ever go to one and you don't know what to bring, just bring a bunch of bananas or a bag of clementines, and you'll still be loved.

PS - This is why I bring my own food separate to the dinners - it does mean I taste it so I know it's good.

Ate early tonight. Chilly in Pennsylvania today but started a wood fire early outside. Took a while to get the coals to the right spot so the burgers dripped appropriately onto the hot coals then that smoke wafted up and coated the burgers. Milliard reaction something or other, really really tasty. Then warmed some thick tomato slices, slight toast to rolls in panini press, then cheese and everything else into panini for slight final overall toast.

So good. One of my favorite scenes in the movie 'Toast' was when one chef is saying to the other, 'This is really good." and the chef who prepared says, 'Of course."

It's not bragging. It actually is that good... of course.

I'd second a lot of the other quesadilla advice and add that you might be using a combination of too high a heat and a frying medium with too high a smoke point. If you use butter, the heat needs to be lower. Olive oil can go a little higher. Vegetable oil a little higher still.

The event was planned and advertised weeks ago: At the new Fairhope Museum of History, officials would open a city safe that had been abandoned and unused since 1971.
What would be inside? Nothing? Old city records?

This morning, a crowd of nearly 30 Fairhopers watched as a locksmith lifted away its heavy, black door. A few called out the obvious -- its shelves were filled with marijuana. The safe apparently had last been used by the Police Department prior to 1971 to store drug evidence.

Among the safe's items were a green diary with a peace symbol drawn on its front and several match boxes filled with dry, 37-year-old dope.

128
The Maillard reaction (/maɪˈjɑːr/ my-YAR; French: [majaʁ]) is a chemical reaction between amino acids and reducing sugars to create melanoidins, the compounds which give browned food its distinctive flavor. Seared steaks, fried dumplings, cookies and other kinds of biscuits, breads, toasted marshmallows, and many other foods undergo this reaction. It is named after French chemist Louis Camille Maillard, who first described it in 1912 while attempting to reproduce biological protein synthesis.[1][2] The reaction is a form of non-enzymatic browning which typically proceeds rapidly from around 140 to 165 °C (280 to 330 °F). Many recipes call for an oven temperature high enough to ensure that a Maillard reaction occurs.[3] At higher temperatures, caramelization (the browning of sugars, a distinct process) and subsequently pyrolysis (final breakdown leading to burning and the development of acrid flavors) become more pronounced.[4]

This will be on the CBD final exam.

159 I’m not a big fan of bbq sauce. I find even quality stuff is goopy, gloppy, and so heavily seasoned in one direction or the other (too hot, too sweet, etc) that it suffocates the flavor of good, well-prepared meat. If you got dogshit meat, then you may want to suffocate that shit. But good quality meat? Nah brah.

But last week I ordered from Amazon some Rufus Teague Carolina-style sauce (mustard style). It was surprisingly subtle and complex. Didn’t overwhelm the meat at all. Recommended, unless you have dogshit meat you want to suffocate.

Chemjeff's inability to grasp this was when I flipped the Bozo Bit* on him.

* Dismissing a person as not worth listening to
In his 1995 book Dynamics of Software Development, which presented a series of rules about the political and interpersonal forces that drive software development, Jim McCarthy applied the bozo bit notion to the realm of human interaction.

In his book, McCarthy's rule #4 is "Don't Flip The Bozo Bit". His reasoning is that everyone has something to contribute – it's easy and tempting, when someone ticks a person off or is mistaken (or both), to simply disregard all their input in the future by setting the "bozo flag" to TRUE for that person. But by taking that lazy way out, the person poisons team interactions and cannot avail themselves of help from the "bozo" ever again.

If you mean the part about well done, then yes. It’s a crime against nature to eat steak well done. Why even order steak in the first place?

One caveat. If you grill, we make these things we call burn strips that are thin strips/tubes of cheap steak that we burn the shit out of on the grill. It’s then a pop-in-your-mouth appetizer. If you like very smoky, charcoal-y flavors, then you’d like these.

179 We make risotto a few different ways. It's important to start with the right product. The Piedmontese around here generally use vialone nano then add a few cheeses like pecorino Romano and some monte veronese to make it nice and creamy. Then add some extra virgin olive oil, butter, broth and a touch of wine, usually a barolo or a amarone.

Posted by: Marcus T at February 25, 2024 05:35 PM (ZSrej)

180 Marcus T, I use chicken stock and white wine added a cup at a time while stirring. Final addition is fresh grated Romano cheese. No oils needed.

Use it to make Aviations? They're supposed to taste all floral. "Creme de Violette" is one of the ingredients, though it's mostly there to make the drink sky blue so you have a reason to call it an "Aviation." (Gin, maraschino liqueur, creme de violette, and lemon juice.)

Maybe you could leave out the violette and add more flower-garden gin, though it wouldn't be blue.

No, but that would be awesome. Sad to say my house is bacon-deficient at the moment.

236 you need to use a baking soda wash to brown your pretzels correctly.

Mix in some crisped up pieces of chopped bacon. You'll thank me.

Bacon deficient?!

243 Heidi has been making yogurt in the Instapot. THE best tasting creamiest yogurt I ever had. It's so dense you can only eat a little. Yum!!

Posted by: Cannibal Bob at February 25, 2024 06:47 PM (wM304)

244 Do like shrimp and grits. I make it frequently. I add lot roasted corn to the grits. and a lot of butter, and serve with diced green onion.

I like BBQ shrimp equally (there is no BBQ sauce involved). The original came from Pascaal's Manale but most restaurants in New Orleans serve their own version of it.

*hangs head in shame*

The meat loaf is pretty tasty though. I recently learned that fresh ginger is excellent in meat loaf. I would never have thought of that myself.

Niiice. I have a thick cut pork porterhouse that I need to sous vide this week with some sage and lemon.

Posted by: RedMindBlueState at February 25, 2024 06:51 PM (Wnv9h)

248 I haven't tried sushi with the rice made in the cooker, but I have jasmine rice which may have the proper stickiness. I used to see pre cooked sushi rice which was sold in boxes at Costco and those worked very well.

Posted by: gourmand du jour at February 25, 2024 06:51 PM (MeG8a)

249 Thankfully my wife's hobby of making yogurt has ended, she use to use a heat blanket in a ice cooler to make it

Jasmine isn't known to be 'sticky'. It may not hold together as well.

252 That's OK, I had no plans to make my own sushi. Last time I tried it was a bit of a botch. We still ate it, of course, every speck, but it lacked the artful appearance. Speaking of sushi, one time I ordered a dish at a sushi restaurant and the order came on a plate with 4 pieces. Then someone told me that is bad luck to serve 4, it's always 3 or 5 or any number than 4.
Is 4 some kind of Japanese superstition?

I am torn between the rib chop and the porterhouse. It's definitely a First World Problem!

Posted by: gourmand du jour


Yes, the word for 'four', shi, is pronounced the same as the word for 'death.'

256 Of course, they substitute the word, yon, for four most of time.

259 I have an insulated container that holds a quart jar. Makes great yogurt. Looks like prices have gone up since last year so I'm going to make it again.

260 The BeardMeetsFood guy is great. Very charming chap from Leeds, I think.

I'm with you on risotto, CBD--I love it. I've made it several times but I can never make it the way it's supposed to be, which ideally is saucy and creamy as opposed to thick and starchy. But I'll keep eating my failures!

261 Was introduced to Shrimp & Grits at a joint in Savannah called Tubby's long ago. There's something about the shrimp there in the Georgia/South Carolina area; I find them sweeter in flavor than my normal Gulf shrimp. I do enjoy whipping up a pot of grits and serving shrimps.

Mrs. Brewingfrog is a superb maker of risotto, and will serve it with shrimp, or whatever. Just give her the right stock, and proper cheese mix, and shazam!
