    Dinner 2019

    I made a recipe that put a cheesesteak filling inside a bread dough and baked. The Korean restaurant we always go to has had corn topped with melted mozzarella and since there was a lot of filling leftover and some corn in the refrigerator, I tried baking the two together to see how it would turn out. It was OK but not would have been better as a side for a dish that didn't have the same ingredients.

    Charlie asked for ribs again this weekend, possibly because the ones last week went so quickly due to company. It was pretty much a repeat of last weekend without the pulled pork. I did two slabs of ribs, milk bread yeast rolls and a fruit salad.

    We like a mussels with wine dish at an Italian restaurant we have gone to a few times so I thought I'd try a recipe that cooked mussels with wine and had a sauce that was largely wine. It was not the same but there were no leftovers.

    The ingredients for this recipe for Japanese Beef Tataki came from A Moveable Feast recipe but the preparation differed somewhat in that I did not make it with rare beef and did not slice it as thin as the original and did not use garnishes. We had it with steamed rice and cucumber kimchi.The picture came out somewhat dark. I tried to lighten it as much as I could.

    I almost forgot to take pictures. We are expecting a few people over any time now. I have been using the smoker since early this morning. We are having pulled pork and ribs. Charlie is grilling some hamburgers and i made a fruit salad. Everything else was store bought.

    A friend who is a professional baker and is from a defunct cooking site and occasional visitor to a small group of people who used to be there, posted a King Arthur recipe called Japanese Milk Bread rolls. I tried it today and chose a chicken in a packet recipe to go with it. The bread was good but I plan to make some small changes next time.

    I'd never seen a ribeye cap steak for sale before so I grabbed it up and we had them for dinner tonight. They say it is the best part of the steak. We both thought it was delicious. We had them with smashed potatoes and roasted carrots.

    We have been having a lot of take-out lately but tonight I made some smothered pork chops, a recipe called carrot fries and a coleslaw made with Ranch Dressing.

    Charlie had a specific request for dinner tonight: Martini Chicken with egg noodles and Alfredo sauce, so that is what we had.

    When we order them at restaurants, they bring out scissors for us to cut the meat away. When I met my wife and her family.. and we had a restaurant shortly afterward, it was 35 to 40 years ago and short ribs were always bought cut between the bones and the meat was cut by the cook according like so there was a long strip of meat with the bone at the end. It was not until my son was about 10 or 12 when I first saw it cut through the bones like it is now. Of course that was in the middle of Kansas and it was probably seen on the coasts sooner but when in the Asian market, and it is cut like that, it is called LA cut.

    Actually, that style originated in Los Angeles. Koreans call short ribs presented like that 'LA cut'. .

    The lead-in to this recipe from Night+Market cookbook was " Korean Short Ribs as Made by Thais Who Have Never Been to Korea" Charlie said it was very good.

    I discovered that the nearby Mexican meat market has lamb year round so we had Chislic again.

    It might have been an email from Fine Cooking where I saw a list of new cookbooks, but I don't remember for sure. I picked out several and let Charlie narrow it down to two. We have tried two from a Thai cookbook called Night + Market. We didn't care for the first one we tried. This one was pretty good. It was chicken thigh nuggets fried with tempura batter and tossed in a sweet/sour orange sauce. Charlie went to a Korean store today and brought home some cucumber kimchi and kimbob and we had that along with rice with the chicken.

    I don't remember if I have mentioned Don before but I first had chislic around 45 years ago in North-central Kansas where I was a teacher and a he was a fellow teacher who served it at a party he threw. Wikipedia says it is a red meat dish mainly localized in South Dakota. Don was from South Dakota and he said it was a popular bar food. To see more about it, you can go to the blogspot listed at the bottom of this post. He has always made it with skewered lamb. This is the first time I have tried it . Charlie said it was delicious and tasted just like Don's. We had it with corn and snow peas. Over the years, Don built a 'castle' on an island in the middle of a pond on land he owned and had his chislic parties there. Several people gave him additions for the castle. I made some gargoyles, a moat monster, a bridge troll and a plaque that said Schloss Insel.
