I love very pink pork .

 

esp the darker meat that's around the tip ( towards the head )

 

of whole loins

 

this meat is frequently markets as Country Style Ribs.

 

cook this   < 135 F and you are in for a treat.

^pink sous vide pork, pink rack of lamb, med-rare-on-the-rare-side beef---burgers, steak. We prefer. 

 

Storm freezer shopping. Tuesday sloppy Tacos, Hump Day Dogs. Found a package of TetonGrassFed. A bit on the salty side but some quick pickles helped. RG beans and rice.

Found two nice packages of BoSaam pulled pork.

I'd say that pork looks just right. About 134F...far from raw!

Thanks. Grew up with pork cooked to death. I'm sure sure my mom is rolling over looking at how I cook pork (and beef) ... in her defense, my dad only liked meat cooked to "well done." No small wonder that I found pork and beef of any kind to be disgusting until I got out on my own.

One of the many dishes made for Chinese New Year, year of the tiger. Tiger Shrimps, with heads and tails, as per tradition for New Year good luck, also lots of good luck red.

 

Although plating design was nothing special, but after the food was "deconstructed" the dirty dish was interesting :B

WOA (work of art) - the "after" plate. I'd have enjoyed the shrimp too

Reminds me of trying to eat a burger on the deck at Sam's in Tiburon.    Take a bite, shoo away a sea gull.    Take a bite; another seagull swipes a fry.

@Shelby – you make some of the best looking French fries! 

 

Jessica found a recipe on Instagram for chicken Karaage and wanted to make it for dinner last night.  I’m so glad that she did because it was so delicious.  Tender and juicy and incredibly crisp. It included a recipe for a miso aioli dipping sauce that was also delicious.  The chicken is marinated in a soy/sake-based marinade and then coated in potato starch.  It’s then double fried. After the first fry:

IMG_8156.jpg.b48c4fb9cce3ddd6e10855daf6cfca9e.jpg 

 

Served with the aioli, jasmine rice, and stir-fried vegetables:

IMG_8157.jpg.1a14e6405effaa03a727f59de66392de.jpg

This was supposed to serve four people, but we ate it all!  Mr. Kim came back into the kitchen twice from his Zoom poker game to grab more pieces off the rack!

 

Dessert:

Biscoff ice cream bar.  Really good.  Nice, thick chocolate coating.

LOL thanks, Kim--I've been craving fries a lot lately.  I've been craving everything a lot lately lol.  

 

Your meal looks SO good. I'd love the chicken recipe please.

I have made a Cook’s illustrated twice baked potato recipe and their secret to a nice potato shell was to bake it again after the flesh was taken out.  Not in the oven long…just long enough to crispen it a bit.  They were then stuffed with their filling and baked again to finish.  The skins had a nice texture…not rubbery.  I wonder where that recipe is?

That is the way I always made potato skins. After removing the  flesh  brush the skins with a little oil and bake until crispy before piling on the toppings.

Nice plating.  Penne with meatballs and sauce. (Yes, penne first tossed with sauce, plated and then a schtickle more sauce, and the balls, over the top).

Brussels sprouts with Schaller & Weber double smoked bacon.

The duck is stunning.  Do you happen to recall the internal temp?  Did you rest it and for how long?  We are going to have duck breast next week.

The plate of food is almost a 10/10 but there ARE bs’s on there hiding under the meat🤪

Yes. All the things in that picture are on the blog except the steak.  Not much to say about cooking a steak.

My wife has been in the mood for chicken with a lime juice based sauce for a while.... so.... bún gà nướng - Vietnamese grilled chicken noodle salad.

 

The chicken was marinated in lemongrass (from the garden), garlic, black pepper, fish sauce, a bit of Golden Mountain sauce (some kind of amino sauce) a bit of honey and some sesame oil.  Since I don't have a real grill, it went closely under the broiler for 5 minutes on each side, alternating, until the chicken was cooked through and skin almost done.  Then I let it cool a bit (internal temp to about 140F) then back under the broiler for about 2minute increments until the skin was done - came out great - chicken was really juicy and the skin was completely rendered - not super crispy though

With a few different herbs (2 from the garden).  I would have liked to have had some Thai basil as well, but it was super expensive in the store and didn't look very good.

Sauce was lime juice, sugar, fish sauce, black pepper, garlic and some chilli
