Dinner 2016 (Part 2)

Recommended Posts

(Thanks, Ann_T!)

---------------------------------------------

 

Summery food today. If I mix the mince and the Turkish red pepper paste, spread it on the bread and bake it then it'd be Lahmacun (which I do make once every fortnight or so to take a break from Flammkuchen).

The Iraqi flat bread is huge, I cut it up to eat in smaller portions. That's just red wine in the beer glass, btw.

Yukhoe on hot white rice; yukhoe is Korean beef tartare marinated in garlic, honey, black pepper, soy sauce and sesame oil, with a raw egg yolk. And I added a few of my other favourite ingredients; chopped blanched octopus, tiny cubes of crunchy, juicy nashi pear, Korean chilli flakes, and crispy garlic.

And drizzled with ginger oil, and Korean plum syrup (maesil).

With a little sprinkle of this beautiful Cypriot black salt:

Tonight: I am cooking my way through a Christmas present, Lynne Rossetto Kasper's The Italian Country Table.  Bruschetta with seasoned ricotta, oven roasted tomatoes, red onion, parsley, olive oil and oregano (Sicilian Farmer's Bruschetta). Also what  she calls "Tuscan Mountain Supper" -  dried beans cooked with tomato, sage, onion, parsley and garlic served with a salad of bitter greens and red onion (in this case endive and radicchio and a little romaine just to cut the bitterness). I added a bit of cappicola to the salad - just because. The salad and beans are to be eaten together and that really worked - the salad cut the richness of the beans, the beans balanced the bitterness of the salad. The beans were, again, from my garden - seeds I got from Johnny's on clearance labeled "Italian shell beans". I'm not sure what variety the really are but they tasted really good.

These are the beans I used (before cooking). They look a lot like pinto beans to me....

I think they probably are. I wasn't sure because I have grown borlotti beans in the past and they looked like this: white and red rather than brown and red. Googling images, it seems borlotti are beans of many colors.

The recipe on this site (where I got the picture) is very similar to the recipe I used. Add garlic and subtract celery and carrot.

Elaina, your meals are always so pretty.  And, you've inspired me to someday (dare I say maybe this summer) plant some beans like yours.

 

SV KC strip, mushrooms in butter with some garlic chive that has emerged from it's winter sleep (waaaaaaay early) salad and taters.

If you have more of those beans, I encourage you to try them in pasta è fagioli (with rosemary, celery, loads of black pepper. Puree half the beans and drizzle good sharp evoo). Those beans are just perfect for this dish and has such a beautiful tan color when cooked.  After first tasting it made with them in Bellagio, I no longer make it with any other kind.

@Shelby  Thank you! And, if you grow  regular Beans (string beans - although aren't most varieties string-less there days?) you can grow beans for drying. It is actually easier because you don't have to worry about harvesting them before they get tough - you just leave them on the plant until the pods dry our. I'm trying Tongue of Fire this year as well as my favorite, coco noir.

Home for a couple of days so I made a cross-rib roast.  Seasoned with Sansaire Steak Aging Sauce and Montreal Steak Rub, then sous vide for 24 hours at 130F.  Seared with the Sansaire Searing Kit and served with corn and salad. It was tender and tasted like Prime Rib, but only $3.99/lb!

A crumbed lamb loin chop, pan fried with sage leaves and onion. Served with potato and cauliflower mash (very good) and fresh tomato and chilli sauce. Horseradish on the side.

I removed and shredded all the meat from braised pheasant legs, added (root) vegs and turned it into 3 pies.
