    New year's day food traditions

    My meal: I'm eating collard greens for money and black eyed peas for luck. There will be some nice homemade barbeque on the side for good measures.


    Mmmm...





    What do you eat on New Year's day as a traditional meal? Is there meaning behind the food?

    We're always watching football so it's usually BBQ'd something and other snack-type foods. Today the big hits were Candied jalapenos on cream cheese, an antipasto plate and guacamole made with rotella tomatoes and red beans. The only meaning associated is that it has to be portable (as far as the TV). Wanted to meet the local cycling club for Breakfast and a New Year's Day ride, but still haven't quite whipped my flu symptoms.

    We got nothing left in the house to eat from the holidays. I think we're down to some of that sour cream and onion dip. No chips.

    That's sad. Run out to a gas station and get you a bag. But don't skimp, get a kettle cooked version since it is the end of holidays.

    Side note: had an awesome side dish, Deep Fried Bell Pepper Rings. They were served with Greek Tzatziki sauce but blue cheese dressing would work. The batter was just buttermilk soaked pepper rings dropped into flour with salt and pepper added to it. Simple, but really good.

    We recently had a bash at our home and have been having leftovers. I can't complain because there is not much to cook

    This new year's day I had vegetarian chili and Chris had a turkey burger and we both had homemade pickles. We went for a 2.5 hour ride today (it was really cold out) so we made sure our food was extra spicy.

    When I was growing up my parents would take us out for Chinese food because those were the only restaurants or take-out available... but now-a-days there is so much more to chose.

    We don't practice any food traditions for New Years. Just hang a fed back around my neck and I will eat most anything you put in it.

    They were talking about these one the news just recently. I'm not sure about them. They can't be worse than the 1000 year egg I ate with some Chinese friends.

    The things you discover.....

    My family has never practiced any new year food traditions. In fact, ive never even heard of it, so that it is an actual thing i am just now learning about it is kinda cool.

    Oyster Stew.. My family has been making it for New Years for three generations. It's pretty gross but you have to eat it for luck or something I guess.

    Pork & sauerkraut in my family. My girlfriends family does the same. Must be a regional thing.

    Being of German decent and from South Dakota, I'd expect pork & kraut. I have always wondered where the oyster stew idea came from in my family. No one seems to know but they all do it.

    I don't have the proportions (I eyeball it each time), but this is roughly the order from most to least
    Brown sugar
    Salt
    Black pepper
    Paprika
    Badia Fajita seasoning


    I rub the meat with dijon mustard and then coat with the rub.

    You have to cook on pretty low temps to avoid burning the sugar. If you are going to go hot, I would decrease the brown sugar.

    Adding dijon before the rub sounds great! Think I'll try that.I'll use a variation of the dry rub ingredients you listed,depending on what I have.

    Gonna use a Croc Pot on low for about 10 hours.Some friends of mine cook theirs in root beer.

    The mustard rub helps tenderize the meat and adds a nice flavor. If you can, let the meat sit on the counter with the mustard and rub for an hour or so while it warms up to room temperature. This seams to help develop a better crust on the meat. You probably won't get a crust in a crock pot, but it will still taste good.

    Here is a top secret tip: Once the meat is done and shredded, add a tablespoon or two of good quality smoked salt. It will take what is an ordinary pork roast into something that will taste like you stoked a firebox all night.
