    Yes, skirt steak. The fat made the end result wonderfully tender

    Dinner 2021

    Made a knockoff version of spicy rigatoni from Carbone. It’s a version of penne alla vodka served at Carbone in SoHo NY (and Hong Kong and Vegas). Basically a vodka sauce with San Marzano tomatoes and Calabrian pepper paste, combined with an onion soubise.

    yes, it fits—it’s just a normal size crockpot. I think this shoulder was 8.6lbs. If I get a bigger shoulder I’ll either cut in half and freeze the other half, or just save to grill/smoke on a weekend.

    Dinner 2021

    Crockpot all day, then shredded, added additional seasoning (garlic, chili, black pepper, paprika, cumin) and crisped in oven. Easy weeknight cook. Sometimes I’ll smoke it when I have a whole day, but crockpot + oven is the simple way.

    I crisp the edges in the oven at 400 after pulling, but clearly not enough! and yes, bone in....$7.50 for an 8lb shoulder

    Dinner 2021

    Found a pork shoulder on special for less than $1/pound (what inflation?!) and made some carnitas. have tons of leftovers, and made a not especially authentic huevos rancheros for breakfast (no ranchero sauce—just Pico de Gallo, onions, cheese, avocado and some hot sauce)

    Dinner 2021

    Always room to improve. I’d like to feel more confident about the process, and the noodles themselves could be made more uniform. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy with the result, but I’m always looking to get “the taste”. Being able to dial in the flavor, noodle thickness, texture to 100% my preference will just be a work in progress.

    the picture of the rolled pasta was intermediate after #1—it was rolled out to #4, which I think it about right. overall, I’m hopeful I can continue to improve. the end result was very tasty

    Dinner 2021

    Made homemade pasta for the first time today. Pleased but not satisfied with the result. Used the egg yolk pasta recipe from the Vetri cookbook, with 3/4 tipo 00 flour, 1/4 semolina flour, 9 egg yolks, water and olive oil. Served with homemade marinara and Italian sausage.

    Dinner 2021

    Made some hummus and shishlik with recipes and inspired by the Zahav cookbook hummus right out of the food processor shishlik with a marinade made of onion, parsley, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and oil filet with the same marinade veggies after cooking—cooked in the oven because I didn’t want to get out the grill. Would have been better over charcoal hummus topped with garlic, toasted pine nuts, olive oil and paprika

    Dinner 2020

    Very easy: 12oz bag of cranberries, chopped in Cuisinart 2 Granny Smith apples - cored (but not peeled), chopped in Cuisinart 2 Naval Oranges (with peel), chopped in Cuisinart Combine chopped fruit with 1.5 cups sugar Best when prepared a day early so the fruit has time to absorb the sugar. Compared to traditional cranberry sauce, it's much more refreshing and less cloyingly sweet.

    Made a tomahawk steak for my wife’s birthday using a new method. Reverse sear at 250 in oven for an hour, then high heat sear on charcoal chimney to char. 42oz steak seasoned with harissa, salt and pepper. After an hour in oven at 225, internal temp was 110 when I pulled out. searing directly on chimney grill marks on first side final product rested for 5-10 mins ready to serve!
