Tonight's tuna landed on the kitchen floor.  Served with coleslaw and a lovely Cotes de Provence rose.

Galician-style or simply grilled (Portuguese) is my favourite when it comes to octopus.  All you need is good olive oil, paprika powder and boiled potatoes. (SV it first)

SV duck leg. Last summer I made a big batch of scotch-infused cherry compote and finally it's all gone.

Two and a half minute mushroom pizza.

 

You sauté the mushrooms ahead of time, yes? And the sauce?

yeah..I should have slow cooked it at 325F. At 400F the outside would get crazy hot and dry out before the inside cooks which is what happened here. 

 

But I chose 400F because I needed the skin to brown. At 325F the skin would not brown in time. 

 

and I chose 400F because I was following the original recipe by Pepin at 

 

 

 

The Ballentine technique is technically brilliant but not easy (for me at least) to get the meat temperature perfect. 

 

I was super sad when I bit into that dry meat and dinner was not good. 

 

 

 

 

Why not Sous vide the thing to 145 and then sear in a pan?

No.  Sliced raw mushrooms* and mozzarella.  Bit of oregano.  Meant to add fresh basil out of the oven but I forgot.

 

*tossed with olive oil.

To tell you the truth this was my first time doing it and I was doing it after work - like I come home at 7:30pm so I have like less than 2 hours. 

 

The oven seemed easy and true to the recipe. I'm just doing it to learn about technique currently. 

 

Hmm...and I'm not a fan of sous vide. The meat never tastes as good as traditional forms of cooking - pan fry, bake/roast, poach etc. - for some reason.

SV does add time. 

 

I wouldnt SV everything. It isn’t as good as braising for short ribs for example. And I don’t see the point of SV for most fish or other tender quick cooking meat (except shrimp, for which it’s useful). 

 

SV plus sear makes great steaks, but so does pan sear and oven finish.  

 

But for chicken or turkey breast SV is pretty darn good.

Baby bok choy stir fry.  With leftover steak.  Washed down with hoisin sauce.  I never claimed authenticity.  It's my dinner.

Sunday night is pizza night - and tonight I combined it with cleaning the fridge:

 

Shaved asparagus & Brie, sprinkled with Yuzu shichimi togarashi. That was one tasty pizza (followed by the usual mushroom & salami and anchovy & olive ones) ...

Oddly despite what the internet might portray it is NOT a neigborhood. Nothing like K-Town in mid Wilshire  or the SGV for Chinese or Little Saigon in Orange County. But ya did pique interest so I will check around. "Cambodia Town" is close by https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambodia_Town,_Long_Beach,_California

 

huh... I had no idea... I always had heard that there was a large Thai concentration in LA, and just assumed it was concentrated in one area...

There was Soave too.  Not to be flippant I was using hoisin as a dipping sauce.  It was great with bits of steak.  The recipe for Simple Stir-Fried Greens is from Hsiao-Ching Chou's Chinese Soul Food (pp136-137).  Rice, of course, from my Zojirushi.
