I tempura'd some chicken thigh then put it on a home made bun with cabbage, cheese and HP sauce.

Unlimited pork is a pretty awesome way to go through life.

I am on a major lazy streak lately of eating sausages and broccoli at best, and cheese sandwiches at worst.

My friend just graduated from A-CAP (she dropped out for a few years for health reasons and finally went back and finished) so I had her over and made a super simple tomato sauce with bucatini and some roasted broccoli. That was delicious.

Just got back from seeing my sister graduate from college in Boston, where I ate fried seafood for 4 days straight. It was good.

Man, that looks good. After you ate that could you play the trumpet with your cock?

OMG Ash I love that burger technique so much. Glad you tried it out.

I am doing way worse than I was in May when I said I was eating cheese sandwiches. These days I either eat crappy takeout or pb&js. On the plus side, this is because I am going out and doing stuff after work. Need to start having people over to cook again though. Also, uh, vegetables.

I think the US equivalent is steak sauce.

I ain't putting it on steak but I find it acceptable on such as hamburgers and sausages

Whoa, it's been a MINUTE since I had steak sauce. There was this place in St Louis where they had cheap steak sandwiches. I loved that place. The kind of place where they yelled NEXT and if you didn't yell your order they'd move on to the next person. Damn.

Tamago kake gohan. Yum. I put rice in the rice cooker, then took a shower, got out and dumped the rice in a bowl. Added two raw eggs, sesame seeds, soy sauce, stirred like hell hopefully semi cooking the raw eggs with the heat of the rice. Shovel into mouth like the pig you are.

Steak sauce is good on bad steaks, like at Pondersoa and Hoss's and such. Don't put it on actual good steaks though.

I had a great trip food-wise in Chicago. Hit the Chicago local specialty triumverate: Chicago dog, deep dish pizza, Italian beef sandwich. More places I wanted to eat at than I had meals available, that's for sure.

Hoss's (not hosss) is a chain of cheapish steak houses in Pennsylvania and thereabouts. The best thing about it is the big salad bar, with soup and bread and desserts and such. It's a thing from my childhood that I acknowledge is kinda crappy but I enjoy anyway. Any time we're traveling through PA we stop at one if possible.

Now I am eating that rice with egg thing a lot, but doing it with brown rice. Yesterday I also fried up some mushrooms in butter as a topping. Yum.

Smoked tri-tip with a rub I put together from ingredients and shit.
Came out hella damn good.

mmmm...ingredients
Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: Asherdan on May 21, 2018, 06:32:44 pm
Sorry, sure:

1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 Tbsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp lemon pepper
cup brown sugar

I made my own because all of the commercial stuff I've tried lately is too damn peppery and salty. From the original source, I cut the chili powder from 1 tbsp to 1 tsp and I actually added the lemon pepper.

We all liked it, it had the cumin/paprika/chili powder aroma but a milder flavor that didn't bury the beef. I managed to let the tri-tip rest in the bag with it for about 8 hours.

Also: pull that beef off when it hits 130 on the thermometer! The young and the faint of heart can eat the thins and tips that are done medium, the adults can enjoy a nice, juicy medium-rare.

I also got my smoke on this weekend. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bi_9Zvyl5PE/

The pig was a tad disappointing. My smoking rig runs a little too hot. It was cooked through, but would have benefited from a lower temperature and another hour or two. Good smoke flavor, but it didn't have that rip-it-up-with-two-forks consistency you want.

The wings, on the other hand, may become a staple. I thawed them in the bag, dumped a bunch of spice rub right in there (Rudy's Rub from San Antonio) and flopped it around. Smoked for about 90 minutes, no turning or moving (so they can be done on one set of coals). I offered a variety of sauces, but most of our guests ate them as-is.

Those wings looked so good that I walked over to the brooder box with the chicks in it and promised all 11 of the fryers to do that to their wings.

(that's 22 drumetts and 22 wingettes, if you're wondering)

droooooool

I finally did the thing you're supposed to do (cooked a bunch of food on a sunday to eat for lunches all week) and it turns out 5 days of the same lunch is too many for me to really enjoy. I need to alternate, 3 days of the big dish and 2 days of sandwiches or something.

But it was still pretty damn good. Roast chicken thighs with a peruvian-ish marinade (basically lots of paprika, vinegar, salt, garlic, cumin), red beans, white rice, plantains.

Someone who wants to spend a lot less money on mediocre deli sandwiches that cost like $12
Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: wombat on May 29, 2018, 12:21:11 pm
I bet those deli sandwiches seem less mediocre after a week of eating the same freaking thing every single day. Life is too short for lunch to be that sad!
Title: Re: What's for supper?
Post by: Asherdan on May 29, 2018, 03:32:28 pm
We buy all the breakfast and lunch ingredients for the week, but since a salad is the backbone I make it the night before and throw in some variation for the picky people (everyone who's not me). Still do all the prep work (vegetable cuttings and such) on Sunday so the work week is set up. Trying to get the best of both methods, I suppose.

Also, the dairy goat breeder gave us some lamb shoulder and loin chops to try. I rubbed them with a tiny bit of Lawry's seasoned salt and grilled them very rare-medium.

Friggin' delicious. I don't think I want to raise sheep/lambs because they have just slightly enough different needs from goats to be a PITA, but I sure would keep my eyes open for one to buy and eat. Maybe at the fair in October, buy one at the Junior auction and send it straight to the butcher.

My cooking highlight of the weekend was grilled Indian-type bread. I was making yogurt-marinated chicken kebabs, and the cookbook recommended these "puff pastry" breads to go with them. I was like "I have time today, WTFN?" I think I liked them better than the chicken.
Pro tip: It is remarkable how much better your breads will rise when you buy fresh yeast, instead of stuff that expired six years ago.

I bought these really delicious rolls with onion on top. But they had big pockets of raw onion inside??

Delicious but weird burps and bad dreams all week. No more onion rolls.
