Dinner 2019

Recommended Posts

Happy to eat my "bland" food again. Store-bought potato dumplings to test once and for all. They are all uniformly shaped, whereas my own is not nicely shaped but tastes far better.

Potato dumplings with Sauerkraut and Speck. One of my all time favourite meals. Simple, good and soul-satisfying.

Three minute rosemary mushroom pizza:

Actually the mushrooms were leftover chicken cacciatore after the chicken part was gone.  I think I finally have a handle on the ratio of blackened bottom and chewy crust.  Very pleased.

Made Jamie Oliver's Assam Crispy Skin Duck tonight. The skin was scored and rubbed with olive oil, Assam tea leaves and Five Spice powder.
Should have taken a picture before I mangled the duck as the scored skin was kinda pretty and CRISPY! I save the duck fat and poured it while got over some fresh Thai lime leaves.

Made gravy with the bits on the bottom of the pan, the vegetables, and a cup of Assam tea. Eaten with the pan vegetables, quick pickle of carrots and cukes, steamed Shanghai Bak Choy and Jasmine rice.

I've long thought tea is one of the most overlooked ingredients in food preparation.

Tea smoked duck from Sichuan and green tea stir fried shrimp from Hunan are two of my favourites.

 

And the local oil tea dish.

I'll  search out the Oliver recipe.

And now I'm off to plan something fun for dinner tonight ....I need something to distract me from the Chiefs/New England game.  I am a die hard Broncos fan.  I need this game to have no winners.  A score of 0-0 would be nice.

@Shelby,  quick question...

Since you guys are landlocked...how and why do y'all eat so many oysters?

 

I remember reading that with the railroads many  folks would order barrels of oysters for winter celebrations.  Does that fit into your story?

 

 

 

 

 


Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

I just know this is going to come out wrong so I trust you to read between the lines because I am not just being a smart ass. I don’t like tea as a drink. I don’t care if it’s black, green, red, iced.   But it is often the case that an ingredient used in a different way can appeal even to a “hater”. 

 

 What is the likelihood that I might like the smoked duck or the shrimp?  I’m not asking you to get inside my head only to tell me if there is a marked change.  

 

Oh, nevermind. I’ll just have to find out for myself.  Still, I’d like to see your response. Perhaps you even know someone who dislikes tea as a drink.....

My mom and step dad sent us a huge wonderful bag of oysters from Cajun Grocer that we keep in the freezer.  A few hours before dinner, we take some out so that they thaw enough to get them open.  They are wonderful.

I picked up a small boneless pork loin the other day which I'll rub with grainy mustard , bourbon, brown sugar, etc.  Recipe callsfor roasting in a Dutch oven over onion and apples.  Don't have the apples but I'll make do with just onion.  

Have some leftover green beans and a ciabatta roll to go with.

Tonight my wife was at her community band so I was on my own - she said I should get something just for me.  This is american Wagyu ribeye.  I cooked it sous vide and then in a very hot pan to get a nice crsp crust - might have had it on longer then it needed, but the crust was nice.  I steamed some potatoes and smashed them to go along.

I can only eat so much steak - I had a bit left over - it's approved by my cat:

I am contemplating that very thing for dinner tomorrow, save with cornbread 'stead of polenta.

I don't see why you might not like it as a vegetable or smoking fuel. I don't particularly like drinking tea - I might have one cup a year.

 

Used as a vegetable it brings a vegetal note and a slight bitterness (tannin) which compliments the sweetness of the shrimp. Dragon's Well tea is the preferred choice for this dish. More here.

Jasmine tea is the choice for smoking. It brings that floral note to the duck. it is seldom made at home, though.

Well that certainly brought a smile to my face.

Thanks very much for answering my questions.

Saved a little of the beef gyudon from lunch and served it over noodles for dinner. I supplemented with some broccoli, some slow cooked onions and peppers and, underneath the scallions, a poached egg.

I looked up the Dragon's Well Tea Shrimp when you first commented. It'll be next on my "new recipes". I have a couple of containers from students. Thanks!
