Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

Recommended Posts

@chefmd  you would love me too!  I only like chicken breast although I know it’s disliked by many here.  I didn’t eat meat until I was 12 or so.  The family doctor told my mom I was too lazy to chew.  I enjoy meat now but the texture of any fatty parts is like fingernails on a blackboard to me.

First, you should get farmers market tomatoes, if you don't have your own garden tomatoes. Don't waste your time with store bought tomatoes.

 

I sliced tomatoes to about 3/8" thick slices, then into the dehydrator (depending on your brand) for about 2 hours. Turn the slices over for another 2 hours. By that time the slices should be about 1/2 the original thickness, soft, tender, but not drippy, with twice the goodness for amazing BLTs.

Thanks!  I've got the BSOA, which has a dehydrate function.  I was looking for something to try it with and this may fit the bill!

Blasphemy ribs again, served with white corn and salad.  More fresh cherries for dessert.

Slow Roast Lamb Shoulder, Gravy with Pan juices and Red Wine, Roasties, Yorkies plus unpictured Veg. 

Not bad for a Tuesday work night... even if dinner was far too late and the child had to be made emergency frozen Pizza when the complaining got too much! 😏

@HungryChris  Those tacos look so good I wanted to dig right in.  What are they filled with?

 

@mgaretz  Please post how these tomatoes work out for you, as I may try to do some also.

Why thank you, @ElsieD. These were ground beef that had been cooked in a fry pan and drained of most of the fat, then seasoned with salt & pepper, garlic powder, chili powder and cumin, hit with a splash of beer for moisture and put in the taco shells. That was covered with a layer of pico de gallo followed by a layer of sharp cheddar cheese and baked in a casserole dish lined with non-stick aluminum foil at 375 F for 15 minutes and served with more pico de gallo, fresh salsa, finely shredded cabbage and sour cream (which I brought out after the camera was put away).

I’m on the road until mid Sept.

so it’s a day of catering backstage (which is consistently excellent as we have a team traveling with us with flight cased kitchens et al) followed by a dinner at whatever the next city’s best restaurant is. 

And repeat. 

Life is tough. <g>

 

But it I miss cooking and like seeing what you lot are doing!

 

Last night: barbecue in Kansas City.

Looks like the perfect batter coating, nice and crisp and not too heavy.

 Came so close to ordering in Chinese food… This was faster, cheaper and tastier. Sausage, mushroom and egg.

Ordered some Analon Nouvelle Copper nonstick pans to go with my new induction unit. Was a bit disappointed with the height of the sides of the pan at first, but discovered the that the heat spread pretty evenly up the sides. Thinking I will sell my Breville electric wok now. 

 

Made some one pad Thai to test it out. Includes dried shrimp for extra shrimpiness

Roasted a small Pork sirloin for dinner.  Forgot to take a picture of dinner, but took one of dessert.

Beautiful!  But copper works with induction?  You mean I don't have to throw my Falk away?

@rotuts 

Thanks so Much! Although I am afraid I will disappoint you, the lamb had three hours and was not in the slightest rare. I find the fattier lamb shoulder works better low and slow for my tastes but I am definitely with you on the pinkness preferred for most other lamby cuts.

ผัดกระเพราไก่

Holy Basil Chicken

 

Got to be better than unholy basil, I reckon.

With asparagus and oyster mushrooms. With rice.

Nice looking dish! Question on the Breville electric wok - did you ever use it to deep fry?

This looks so good.  Could you share your green bean salad recipe please?

 

It was just me last night so I had this:

It is from the Six Seasons thread that @blue_dolphin is posting on. Her's looks better than mine.  I found the recipe on line:  https://www.thebacklabel.com/recipe/roasted-string-beans-and-scallions-with-pine-nuts-and-vinaigrette/#.W2XFKBoTGhA

 

That pine nut vinaigrette is really good!  I think it would work with most any nut you like.

Pure copper won't work. Nouvelle copper is claded together with stainless to make it work with induction. It also has more aluminum than copper. But it's a very thick disc base. Works better than my full claded nonsticks.

Only shallow fried in it. Worked well. It's the best electronic wok I've ever used. It gets the heat up the side of the walls nicely. I'm just discovering that my newest toy can replace a lot of my old appliances, so I'm making a mental list of things to sell in my head :)
