Dinner 2019

I had this pork tenderloin, which is never the most exciting cut of meat. So I brined it over night, and then climbed a ladder bent down in a closet to find my stove top smoker, something I haven't used in forever. But I figured with the hood on and the windows open, I'd give it a shot.  It came out really good.  Served with cowpeas (a relative of black-eyed peas), roasted brassicas, and Tortilleria Nixtamal's tortillas.

Tea smoked duck?

 

This is a Burton's unit, it does close quite tightly, so not much smoke leaks out.  Surprised at how smokey this little tenderloin was in like 30 minutes in the smoker.

w in a week :

 

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N1Q9CID/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

chips you can get anywhere

 

and less chips  are better !  

 

fine is very nice

 

just  take your time to understand 

 

your stove top gets the ' chips ' smoking

 

and then you need very little of them

 

for a clean smoke  light smoke is better

 

Soooo who will start a new thread ?

 

remember  a little goes a long way here

 

but will be tasty.

@Kerry Beal sent me this recipe. It is a Genius recipe from Food 52 for a Spanish tortilla made with store-bought potato chips and the recipe is attributed to Ferran Adria. 
 

I am quite positive I made this once before. I am equally positive I was not impressed. So I have made it again and I hope I remember how unimpressed I am so I don’t try it a third time.

 

I used Lays sour cream and onion chips.

I cooked it on the Paragon using the unit as a simple induction hob.

Out of the corner of my eye I saw what I thought was a cockroach on my cutting board.  Turns out it was a stinkbug.  Not all that much more welcome in my kitchen.

Absolutely.  Take young spring garlic, place in a mortar and pestle with some coarse salt.  Proceed to grind into a paste.

 

Place in a small jar and cover with olive oil.  Freeze immediately. 

 

Enjoy.

My traditional Jewish dinner on xmas day was potstickers with pork, napa cabbage, wood ear mushrooms and the usual suspects. I made no sides, we just pigged out on dumplings until we were full and the dumplings were gone. My nephew declared it his favorite xmas dinner ever, so you can't top that for a gracious guest.
