Thail Style Dip Sauce (mint,coriander,lemon,peanuts,chilli, fish oil...etc)

 

Yes. Fish sauce - in Thai it is nam pla. In Vietnamese, nước mắm.

 

Unusual in Chinese cooking, but essential in SE Asia.

Fish oil is a medicinal food supplement; not an ingredient.

Looks like a very satisfying dinner.

What's the story about that fork?

No particular story. One of a set of six. Japanese. Well used, as you can see. Only two left. But I have an irrational attachment to them.

That's very nice. I believe in friendship with the world. I believe in not throwing out items just because they are no longer "presentable".

 

Thanks!

Soba noodles with stir-fried eggplant in a hoisin-citrus sauce.  Topped with spicy peanuts and green onions.

My husband was a fine wood carver and to him, the feel and the balance of his tools meant everything. We have three sets of silverware and the only forks that he would use were two old forks that he had had for years. No amount of polish or elbow grease would ever make them look 'presentable' but they felt right in his hand and made his meal more enjoyable.

israeli salad to start

reverse seared the steaks and finished directly on the super hot charcoal (no rack)

Our kitchen is a mess due to a water leak upstairs requiring the adjacent breakfast and family room ceilings to be removed, floorboards dried out then ceiling replaced, so we have been surviving on takeout for a few days.  But last night I cleared enough counter space to make pizza.  Crust, sauce, mozzarella, mushrooms, spinach and chicken Italian sausage:

yep, in Chinese, it's "鱼露", not rare in SE Chinese cooking. I have Omega 3 fish oil in my cabinet too, tho haven't thought about using it in cooking yet.

Oh don't waste the expensive fish oil - use canola which so many swear smells and tastes and smells fishy when heated :)

Two Ina Garten recipes past night: Penne alla Vecchia Betola and "outrageous garlic bread."  The bread was really tasty.  It had lemon zest on it which really perked up the flavor.

Yes, I'm aware that 鱼露 is used in Fujian province, especially in Chaoshan cuisine (潮汕菜), but not in the vast majority of Chinese cuisine. I live near the border with Vietnam, but we never see nước mắm here. I always bring some back when I visit.

 

One interesting exception is Shanghai, where the English introduced Worcestershire sauce, which is fish-based. It proved popular and remains so, to the extent that they make their own version locally - and very good it is, too.

Sunday night is pizza night, but ...

 

I bought a rather large piece of „Dicke Rippe“ (pork breast tip), that needed to be cooked. So, why not combine ? I braised the pork in soy/wine/aromatics to make a very aromatic version of red cooked pork and made some „mo‘s“, which were cooked on the pizza steel ...

Structure of the bread came through nicely.

Topped with cucumber (not going into the „traditional“ debate here), cilantro and some chili crisp ...

There is no way to make this as good looking as it tasted. Little one agreed !

Enjoyed together with „Alice in Wonderland“ (1951 version) 🤗

Can you give us more info/direction on the fry bread?    WANT!

Even though it was cold out, I wanted potato salad

And a new revelation for us--braised fennel!  OH this was good.

Baked beans and pickled watermelon radish also

@Shelby- It all looks good, but the braised fennel really caught my eye. What was your braising liquid? Looks delicious!

 

My first attempt at a take on cassoulet. I realize it’s not the most authentic, but it did turn out delicious! The recipe is from Bon Appetit. Confit Chicken with Andouille Sausage Cassoulet.
