    Have you ever tried an electric grill? My dad uses one with wood chips placed around the heating element.

    My wife is trying to talk me into one.. But, I'm like 'what's the point?'
    I use a cast iron grill on my elec. stovetop now and have been getting pretty good results with it.
    My parents had one to give us... it just looked like a George Forman grill on legs... No thanks,

    Someone make his stop. I know I know if you don't like the thread don't open it. I can't help myself and every time I open it there's more mouth watering dishes. Mods can you please close this thread it's borderline on sex and politics.

    I eat there at least 3 times a week. Every dish is great, my favorite is the Pene Rosa. Where else can you eat such amazing food for $6 bucks and change.

    My awesome wife said that.. " if he's not getting any at home, Why don't you invite him over for dinner? "
    "He lives in Colorado"
    .... "oh, "

    I still think it's a good Idea.

    So... DJ, if you're ever in town, And I'm still here You have an open invitation to feast on some delectable dishes of your choosing. as long as it's not flat out BBQ, I don't have one..

    Sodak, You got a chair with your name on it too.

    Finally! Been waiting for a thread like this . . . . I LOVE to cook. My mom hated cooking, so her solution was to teach me. Been cooking since I was ~6 years old, and am still the primary chef in the home. I'll have to start taking more pics of my food . . . .

    Tonight was lettuce wraps made with ground turkey, sautéed shallot, garlic, ginger and green onion and chopped shiitakes with a sprinkle of crushed red pepper served in a butter lettuce leaf topped with torn basil and hoisin along with a side of sticky rice.

    Yesterday was an orzo salad tossed with spinach, onion, feta, sundried tomato and roasted chicken tossed in a pesto/white wine vinaigrette.

    Tomorrow is pan seared chicken breasts with a garlic dijon pan sauce and a side of broiled brussel sprouts.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    ^Damn! That looks like a holiday meal.

    Chili is done for now.. Cooling off before the fridge. Chili is always best re-cooked. Freeze it in double ziplocks -> use frozen chili as ice type pack in cooler on way to camping -> eat chili on everything while on said camping trip.

    ^Damn right! Funny thing is the camping trip is for the wife's birthday, at her request. AND the chili was her request as well. I think she has learned that chili or not, I am a walking/sleeping fart factory.

    If more of us were closer together, I'd propose a chili cook-off (which I would win).

    Gosh, when I lived in SoCal, it never got cold enough to warrant a batch of chili, but now that I'm in the high desert, it may be worth it!

    You have probably never have had them when they are cooked correctly. Boiled and served slimy is not correct.

    Ya know . . . I used to think the same thing, but then one day I decided WTH, lets try em' again.

    I've come to quite enjoy them actually. I'm sure they are delicious with some sort of salted/cured pork, as per above but my wife doesn't eat red meat. I've actually never tried sauted sprouts, but I usually cut them in half and toss them with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder with a dash of oregano and roast them, cut side down. Comes out nice and soft with a slight char on the bottom. Really good . . .

    Also tried doing both broccoli and cauliflower in a similar way and both are equally as good roasted.

    Don't do them together. Broccoli cooks faster than the cauliflower.

    Another interesting changes is to take broccoli rabe, toss with green onions, salt, fresh pepper, olive oil and the sprinkle a mixture of breadcrumbs/parmesan on top before roasting . . . . schweeeew . . . gooood stuff.

    Happy b-day. I've already started cooking in preparation.

    I dig potato salad, and that sounds pretty good . . . but its entirely too much work to make at home IMO, with too little reward.

    I find cooking relaxing, so I don't mind a 49 step potato salad recipe on occasion.

    I see you guy's are still at it. Just keep on teasing with your mouth watering photo's.

    BTW Fishbucket and Heyyall when's the invite to the first annual O.C. Cook off. All dishes welcomed and only a select few O.C. regulars as taste testers and judges. Cook off to be held somewhere in Colorado.

    I've been making my own tomato sauce for a long time now . . . t'was time for a batch. Ever since making homemade, I'll never buy sauce again. I can tweak this in so many different ways. Marinara? No prob. Primavera? You got it. Arrabiata? Of course.

    Today was my favorite version: Roasted garlic-marsala mushroom:

    Ingredients:
    Fishbucket's All about Food in the OC thread.-2013-12-21.jpg

    Step 1: Roast the garlic . . . sorry, no pics. Lop the top, drizzle with EVOO, sprinkle with sea salt, cracked pepper and oregano and roast (covered) for 40 min @ 375F.

    Step 2: Saute onions/mush
    Fishbucket's All about Food in the OC thread.-2013-12-21.jpg

    Step 3: Combine everything
    Fishbucket's All about Food in the OC thread.-2013-12-21.jpg

    Step 4: Simmer for a couple hours, to taste. I've never simmered anything to taste until I started making this sauce, but the longer you simmer, the bolder the flavor profile.
    Fishbucket's All about Food in the OC thread.-2013-12-21.jpg

    This particular batch has a very specific purpose . . . turkey and spinach lasagne!
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Dang, looks good! My buddy in Connecticut has a garden and he does the same thing. So around the end of summer it's a whole week of simmering sauces and canning and freezing! The only way to go I'm sure! I like you even more now, all these skills, it's impressive.

    Canning is something I should really get into . . . the trouble is that when I make sauce, it makes a HUGE batch. If I use it in the lasgagne, I'll use all of it. But when its just a dinner, we use relatively little.

    have you ever had my PB&J?!

    ^^ I've tried a couple of times to make hot sauce. I wasn't happy with the results.


    I made too much homemade chili tonight. My freezer was a bit full and I was in a rush, so I used my deep freeze out back. It is currently set on -10F. #freezingmybuttoffinMN

    Heyyall, hurry up and eat some of the other chili to make room for that in the house. Plus your human heat fartctories will be running at 100% so you can turn the thermostat down a notch.

    I made a special treat for today. Homemade egg drop soup! Not that crap you get for a $1.35 at the local take out.

    Homemade chicken stock: about a week ago I simmered two chickens skeletons for about 6 hours with onion and garlic. The result was a fabulous gelatinous stock. Today's meal is based on a frozen quart of the stock.

    Two tablespoons of arrowroot starch for thickening.

    A few mixed seasonings including gluten free soy sauce, garlic powder, and mixed herbs.

    Two wished eggs.

    Viola --one of the greatest soups on earth.

    dang that does look good! And I just got back from a "cold" ride, so some soup would be great! It really wasn't that cold, but the wind was blowing the whole time and the breeze was CHILLY! Great job though man, that looks delicious. Next time I make fried rice, I'll have to post up some pics.

    After about five hours on 250F on the convection bake cycle in the oven, the pork is done. I need a bit of carry over time plus shredding and I'll be enjoying some of the finest BBQ that can be found in MN.

    I've never made a turkey burger, but I had an amazing pepper jack & jalapeno turkey burger. This recipe would seem like it would be close to what I had.

    I was just talking to my wife about making a batch of jerky! I use soy sauce and orange juice with some spices to marinate then brush on different flavors if any. Done on the big green egg.

    Homemade jerky is the best, and makes for an excellent trailside snack. Far superior to those goos/gels/bars, etc.

    I use the oven method and it comes out fabulously, but can only imagine that it would be faster and impart a real smoke flavor, in the BGE.

    BGE is the BOMB. Expensive, but a great smoker.

    I need to leave this here for a minute:

    INGREDIENTS

    2 pounds chicken wings
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves
    Sesame seeds, for garnish

    FOR THE HONEY SRIRACHA GLAZE
    5 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup honey
    1/4 cup Sriracha
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    Juice of 1 lime

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    To make the glaze, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Stir in honey, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice. Bring to a boil; simmer until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes.
    In a large bowl, combine wings, butter, vegetable oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper, to taste.

    Place wings onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, using metal tongs to turn at halftime. Brush wings with Sriracha glaze and broil for 3-4 minutes, or until crisp and crusted.

    Serve immediately, garnished with cilantro and sesame seeds, if desired.

    (Sometimes I find recipes online, bookmark them and they're gone by the time I come back: Baked Honey Sriracha Wings - Damn Delicious)

    My local Vietnamese restaurant has a wing that I love. The wings are deep fried (plain). Then in a wok, they stir fry green and white onions until limp. They then add the cooked wings. This is served with a side of their homemade fish sauce. Delicious!

    Lemme know how they turn out! My wife doesn't eat spicy or chicken wings, so its unlikely I'll be making these any time soon.

    I'll be glad to post up anything I find, so long as anyone who makes them reports back!

    Cubed chicken breast
    Fresh lemon juice
    Fresh chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley
    Chopped marinated artichoke hearts
    Dried oregano
    Cherry tomato, halved
    Crumbled feta
    Chopped red onion
    Crushed garlic
    Cracked black pepper
    Kosher salt
    Olive oil

    Olive oil + garlic + onion:

    + chicken + salt + pepper:

    + everything else but the pasta and feta:
    Fishbucket's All about Food in the OC thread.-2014-01-19.jpg

    + feta + cooked pasta = Grecian chicken pasta. Divine, and actually quite healthy.

    I omitted the garnish on this one because I forgot to prep it, but you're supposed to garnish with a touch more chopped parsley and serve with a lemon wedge.

    "Southwest chicken"

    1 can (15 1/4oz.) whole kernel corn, drained
    1 can (15oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 jar (16oz.) salsa (we used mild)
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (5oz. each)
    *Optional: red and yellow pepper strips, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, and sliced green onions

    We only added sour cream and we introduced sliced ripe avocados.

    Cook:
    1. In a 3qt slow cooker, layer 3/4 each of the corn and beans and half the salsa. Arrange chicken over salsa. Top with remaining corn, beans, and salsa. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until chicken is tender.
    2. Shred chicken with 2 forks and return to the slow cooker. Heat though. Top with optional toppings listed above, if desired.

    Six 1 cup servings.

    YUMMM! Makes your kitchen smell fantastic!

    ^^Cool! Another recipe I can try in slow cooker! Sounds great!


    Finally got the slow cooker fired up and cooked a nice 6 pound pork shoulder from the Amish meat shop. Coated it with Dijon,a packet of McCormick's fajita seasoning,and some pepper.(Thanks heyyall) Cooked for 9.5 hours on low over a bed of diced onions,let cool,shred/remove fat,and place inside a tortilla with other good stuff & eat!

    So easy to do,and now I have about 5 pounds of tender shredded pork to eat

    Just not sure what to do with the leftover liquid? Isn't that mostly fat?

    There are many Amish in MN.

    I pour the pork drippings into a jug and then eventually recycle it. They can make biodiesel with it. And yes, it is mostly fat and it is great to use in limited quantities to coat the meat once you've shredded it.

    I made homemade chicken & egg drop soup for lunch today. We were in a pinch for time yesterday, so we bought a rotisserie chicken. We ate most of it but there was a breast left over. I took the bones and simmered them for about 4 hours to make a stock yesterday. I filtered the stock and saved it for today.

    Soup - 4 button mushrooms sliced and browned in some butter. Next, I added the diced chicken breast. Once heated through, I added my stock + ~2 tablespoons of arrowroot power (for thickening). I added some various seasonings and brought to a near boil. I then stirred two scrambled eggs into the soup to make an egg drop soup.

    It sounds like a lot of work, but once you taste the soup, you'll know why it is worth the effort. :thumpsup:

    I did add about 1/2 cup right after I shredded it. Maybe next time I'll add some kind of salsa and simmer it for another hour.

    Ah, but DJ, snails were put on this earth so that those of us of 'advanced' years can easily run em down to be able to eat. Garlic is static for the same reason...

    ^^^ Crust too?

    I used to buy the crap from Trade Joes . . . then this guy from South Africa showed me how he makes his own dough with 2 ingredients: 1) flour; 2) beer.

    1) Pile of flour on the counter with a hole in the middle (like a volcano)
    2) Slowly add beer to volcano and mix.

    It takes practice to get the proportions right, and its really just trial and error, but it does work and makes for some decent pizza crust.

    Easy Burrito Filler

    I try to eat at home as much as possible,but it's tough to keep all the ingredients for all the different types of food I love on hand. Mexican is my favorite,so there's usually plenty of tortillas,salsas,cheeses,veggies,and meats in the fridge. I had been keeping beans,rice,and corn in separate containers and mixing them up whenever I made something,which is a pain. The burrito has always been my go-to food delivery system,but I've been known to eat almost anything with chips.

    This isn't so much a recipe,more of a ratio of three main ingredients that form the foundation for any variety of additional toppings. Add some chicken,steak,fish,or whatever you have in the fridge and pile it into a tortilla ~ muy bueno!

    Burrito Filler:

    1 can beans (I like re-fried black beans)

    1 can corn

    1 cup rice


    I cook the rice exactly like I cook pasta; fill a pot with water,bring to a boil,add rice and cook till it's done.

    Next; add the beans and corn.

    Tonight I added a medium diced medium sized onion and pickled jalapenos,salt,pepper,and some Mexican oregano. Found some salsa packets from Del Taco,threw those in as well.

    Now,when I get home from work tomorrow,all I have to do is dice some pre-cooked chicken,add it to some filler and nuke,heat up a tortilla ,top it with cheese and salsa ~ done!

    I just gave it a whirl here for lunch. Worked out pretty good. Had a bit of a plain flour taste, Maybe a good stout beer would give it some gumption. All I had was some Croatian beer a buddy gave me back in October.
    Or maybe roll is some spices ?

    It held the cheese and sauce, So I call it a win.

    Dang, looking about the net today, I didn't realize Easter was such a feast holiday. I thought people just made some ham and had a normal family-oreiented Sunday dinner. People appear to be turning Easter into Thanksgiving Spring. Guess I got to up my game next year.

    Pretty sure we are looking at a pepper. Looks big for a jalapeño but it is hard to tell.

    I love a jalapeño that has been cooked on a griddle or flash deep fried. Just long enough to burst the seeds open for a bit of a kick.

    I am with you on this. I do not like really spicy/hot stuff. When the heat overcomes the flavor it's not worth it to me. Plus, I don't particularly enjoy the "ring of fire" the next day.

    My wife made them.
    Slow cooked the beef in the crock pot the night before and then made a whole bunch of tamales yesterday morning. Steamed them in the evening, rested them and served.
    They were superb.... and there are lots more of them so tonight is a repeat.

    I didn't photograph it, but my birthday cake was a key lime cake with lime curd layers and lime meringue topping. Very yum.

    oh, and thanks.

    Are you sure you are not from the southern tip of the SE USA instead of the Southern Hemisphere? That meal sounds like one you would get from a food truck in south Florida or South Carolina.

    I was feeling I still needed some fluids after a day of riding so I whipped up a go to snack. Left over soup du jour.

    This is a mushroom and pulled BBQ chicken egg drop soup.

    We had "Hudson Bay bread" on our boundary waters canoe trip. We fell in love with the taste but there is none sold here (several stores near the boundary waters had it for sale). So, I do what any normal person would do--compile a custom recipe for home cooks.

    I made some chili for our neighborhood chili cook off tomorrow. Made with ground beef, ribeye, and NY strip steak for the meat. I use my moms recipe with my own variations I have added over the years with a cup of coffee being one of them. To get good flavor I make it a day in advance and let it sit in the fridge then reheat it for the cook off.

    I know, there's all kinds of mumbo jumbo about chili this and chili that. I added some kidney and chili beans which is not "traditional" either but it comes out really good. I just like mine to be spicy and the type that is good smothered on burgers, dogs, etc. Nothing fancy like some neighbors try to do. I am serving up some tortilla chips on the side too in case people want to pour chili over them and add some cheese on top. My wife just tried a sample and gave her approval. I posted up my chili earlier in this thread but added a few tweaks this time, which I tend to do each time I make it.

    While this is faux Asian, I found a little quick snack place in DC called ShopHouse. Think of it as the Asian Chipotle. This may not look like much, but it is great.

    Remarkably similar to some of the random real food I eat at home only with a nice spicy kick and more variety.

    Only if you cook or temper the eggs with heat. These were kept raw and they are essential for a rich, melt in your mouth taste. They also give the ice cream volume since they aid the emulsion.

    Edit: after some research I have concluded there is more disagreement on what is ice cream, custard, gelato, etc than what is an optimal wheel size for a mountain bike. Custard may be correct to describe what I made. But, there is support for ice cream and French ice cream, too. What I think we would all agree on is that it is absolutely amazing.

    Custard is cooked.
    Gelato is frozen strait.
    Ice cream has air introduced.

    That is not bad we use an ice cream scoop to melon ball a watermelon. This looks a bit faster. Faster is good since I eat a third of a watermelon every day.
