From sublime to ridiculous....dinner for granddaughter who is sleeping over tonight.   

Pork belly, mac and cheese, cauliflower and GREEN GODDESS DRESSING, a new adventure and new favorite food!

Ridiculous?  What is ridiculous?  (Except for the cauliflower, of course.)

@JoNorvelleWalker, would you please share your version of Chicken Cacciatore.  Most recipes are based on a tomato sauce I prefer it without. 

 

Recipe from The Romagnolis' Table (1975) -- perhaps my most well worn cookbook.  The mushrooms are my own addition.  Plus I usually cheat.  The Romagnolis instruct one brown the chicken pieces on all sides in oil, thus seasoning the floor and wall.  Sometimes I do this (if short on time and I don't mind a few burns on my hands and face).

 

Better, in my opinion, to cook the chicken parts sous vide.  Then dry carefully and brown in the CSO.  What I showed in the picture was about 10 minutes on 500C steam broil.

 

Meanwhile I sautee the mushrooms and garlic (I do like garlic) then add the chicken pieces along with handful of rosemary and a couple bay leaves (since Bugialli's probably not watching).  Then to the pan over high heat add lots of white wine vinegar.  Let that boil off.  Then add white wine.  Let that boil down a bit,  salt to taste, cover and simmer.  (OK, in truth I usually salt when adding the wine vinegar.)

 

Since by my method the chicken is already fully cooked, the braising time is not critical.  I braise for about 20 minutes.

 

When ready to serve, remove chicken pieces and keep warm.*  Add a bit of water to the pan and bring to the boil over high heat.  Should make an emulsion.  Return the chicken pieces to the pan and serve.  If mushrooms are not desired just leave them out.  But why would you?

 

 

*CSO of course.

The Romagnolis' Table (1975) is a fine  book.

 

they had a fine cooking show on WGBH  , BOS PBS  back when it as a real PBS

 

and they opened a restaurant in Salem , N of Boston  

 

I loved the show and went to the restaurant several times

 

excellent food , Northern Italian  , not Red Sauce Italian

 

it didn't last very long.   People might have been looking , back then

 

for Italian American.      nothing wrong w I.A.food

 

but its not Northern Italian

Ends Meat grass-fed porterhouse, about 1.75 lbs. Only aged 21 days as that's what I wanted, trying to break Significant Eater into the funk slowly.

 

Reverse sear, oven at 225℉, till the steak reached about 115° internal temp. Then slammed in cast iron.

 

Served with green beans and roasted baby potatoes. Cabernet Sauvignon from Stonestreet.

Hard to tell from the pic, but did you put any seasoning on it besides black pepper?

 

Huge fan of dry aged steaks - a local butcher (Cumbrae's) that supplies most of the top restaurants in Toronto puts out some amazing beef and has an 8 week aged rib-eye that is out.of.this.world.

I’ve done it twice. Mostly because I just wanted to learn to do it.  

Yeah, you get it. The first time I tied it up no problem. This second time I couldn’t figure it out for some reason, lol. It worked out in the end.

Thanks @JoNorvelleWalker.

 

I went into Victoria yesterday for some shopping and

 before I left I asked Moe what he would like for dinner. His response was wings.

 

So that is what we had.

Buffalo Wings with fries.

Baked in the CSO on Bake Steam setting.

I prefer the sauce on the side so the wings stay crispy.

Ready to go in the skillet to be browned, then simmered in beer flavored with Caraway.
