Tonight we made Indian Saag with homemade Naan. Delicious.

Ugh! My wife and I had sushi yesterday for lunch and we ate the leftovers for dinner. I don't know if it is the fact that I have been eating better and my system can't take it or if I have food poisoning, but either day I will not be eating there again after spending several rounds already this morning playing Call of Doodie.

You made your own Naan? Awesome! just baked, I assume....unless you have a tandoori? :)

I have a yogurt culture from India that I got from a coworker who grew up there, reputed to be over a thousand years old, and is very tasty.


We made buffalo burgers with aoli and fried portobello wedges =p~

Yep, made from scratch. We didn't have any garlic, so I used cilantro instead. :D Then I grilled it on the Foreman.

Hmmm, lol, well the irony is that I am a Chef, cooking for the last 25 years, the last 15 as a professional Chef, so needless to say, I eat crap food, the less time it takes to make it the better! Tonight will be either wings and beer, with cheese fries of course, or a Philly cheese steak with fries of course, carryout non the less, I really only cook for my kids so that i know they will grow up with a balanced sense of nutrition and (culture) and that they get the proper nutrients they need, as for me, yep, crap food.

We tried something completely new for dinner last night - stinging nettles. Saw them at the farmers market, and decided to try them on a whim. You cook them like greens, and the heat neutralizes the toxin that makes them sting. We sauteed them with garlic and olive oil, and they were really tasty, not bitter like some greens are, and kind of nutty tasting.

Anyone ever tried them? I had no idea you could even eat nettles. You've go to handle the leaves with gloves or tongs to avoid getting stung before you cook them, so I was a little nervous about that first bite.

Lumchan
03-29-2010, 12:06 PM
Wow I didn't even know you could eat them. I ran into them once while in Seattle as an 8-year-old kid. Eating them might be a good payback. :)) Don't think I would dare though because I remember the rash and pain. What did they taste like?

gort
03-29-2010, 12:52 PM
Yeah, I used to run around the woods quite a bit as a boy, so I had many run ins with nettles. Gave me pause to eat them. That and the fact that I was eating something I would otherwise treat as yard waste.

They were mild in flavor, and kind of crisp, even when wilted. Tasted sort of nutty. A lot better tasting than kale.

Just a tip... anyone that likes mashed potatoes like i do.. to make them healthier, use half the potatoes you normally would boil and replace with cauliflower, steam the cauliflower for 20 minutes then mash them and mix in with your potatoes.
Just thought i would share

That's a great idea. My wife and I make mashed cauliflower with a little butter sometimes, and my four year old just gobbles it up.

What we used to call a Toad in the Hole in my family was a fried egg, covered with a piece of grilled bread with a hole cut out in the middle, so the yolk peeks out through the hole. My daughter loves it when I make them for breakfast.

I do that for my kids too, except we cut the hole first with a biscuit cutter, and fry the egg in the center of the bread, grilling the toast at the same time. We don't have a name for it though--except gooooood :D

We had spicy braised pork ribs (giant ones, only 6 in 2 lb, from my in-law's pigs :-o ) with grilled asparagus, baked beans, and nice tangy coleslaw.

I braised those ribs for 3 hours with a bottle of brown ale I brewed =p~ .

My best friend Paul and his wife Traci, who is my wife's best friend, came over last night for celebratory dinner because they just found out they are expecting their first child :party:

I made 1/3 pound cheeseburgers made with lean ground beef, char-grill seasoning, fresh chopped garlic, worcestershire sauce, and bread crumbs to hold them together, topped with Boar's Head cheddar cheese. They were absolutely delicious, and even well-done (the way they like them) they were still so juicy we all had to use a lot of napkins. Put them on fresh kaiser rolls from the Publix Bakery. For sides we had homemade macaroni salad and a fresh Caesar salad. For desert we had angel food cake topped with sugar glazed strawberries and blueberries with a scoop of Blue Bell vanilla ice cream. =p~

Mmm, that sounds awesome. That is a good idea with the bread crumbs to hold the patties together, I'll have to remember that. I always hate it when my burgers fall apart.

I'm going to do a little preemptive bragging here. My sister-in-law has come to visit in order to help out with the baby, and we are having a nice dinner tonight before she heads for home tomorrow. I got a big tuna steak and am going to marinate it in soy sauce, a little wasabi paste, and some fresh ginger and then grill it up. So simple, and so delicious. I'll throw some fresh asparagus on too, which is amazing when grilled with some olive oil and lemon juice.

Yup, something my father in law taught me. Especially good to do if you use lean or extra lean beef since they don't have the fat to hold them together. The bread crumbs really don't add any flavor, but they don't take any away either, and I would rather have a flavorful burger with lean meat where you can taste the beef and the seasonings rather than just the grease :sick:

Not a ton because the seasoning mix I use already has some in it. I added about two heaping teaspoons worth to 2 1/2 pounds of beef. Can't tell you the exact amount of anything as I usually just wing it. If the mixed up meat smells right, then I am done. If not, I add until it does.

Adding an egg and a bit of cream also helps keep things together. I do a similar recipe only I also add bacon and cheese to the mix. Cook up a bunch of bacon until slightly crisp and let cool. Crumble/chop the bacon and add to the ground beef. Take some old cheddar (I prefer a white cheddar that is approx 2 yrs old) and cut into very small cubes (approx 1/2 CM X 1/2 CM) and mix this into the meat. The amount of bacon and cheese varies and doesn't need to be exact. Form your patties and let rest in the refridgerator for an hour or longer. Cook on a Charcoal grill (I love my Weber Kettle). You will need to start out over direct high heat to seal the burgers and then move them off to indirect cooking, cover the grill and let them go for approx 15 minutes. This will produce a very juicy, but thoroughly cooked burger. Don't add any salt to the meat mixture as the bacon will do that for you. The cheese will create little molten pockets of yummy and the bacon adds a smokiness that can't be beaten. NOTE: if you try this recipe anticipate MAJOR flare-ups during the intial, direct cooking phase. As the cheese melts some of it will ooze out and cause the flaring. You don't have to leave them directly over the coals for very long. With the flare-ups the outside of the burgers will quickly develop a nice bark and then you move them off the direct heat to finish them off.

Think I learned an important lesson when using those breadcrumbs when making burgers - go light on 'em. We made burgers the other night and I tried the breadcrumbs trick to hold the meat together (I think it was 90/10 ground beef, so it needed it). I used the stuff fairly liberally and some of it was on the outside of the burgers when they hit the grill. Bad idea. The breadcrumbs pretty much burned up and made the burgers look really burned. The funny thing is, they weren't burned, and actually tasted pretty darn good. But all the charred blackness didn't do much for the eye-appeal!

Right, this is serious. On Saturday I am having a World Cup/ Birthday party and BBQ. And I thought if there is one place I can find someone that knows how to cook meat better than Satan himself, it is here on the MP foodie forum.
I have read this a bit, and DAMN you boys over the pond can cook meat like no one else.

So here is the catch. Who would like to sneak me their signature dish, so I can pass it off as mine and wow everyone.
I don't mind a bit of prep work, and no more than an hour cook time ( drinking to be done :drink: ), and being from the UK we are a bit limited on decent racks of ribs etc.

Borlax's burgers sounded pretty fine, I think I am already doing King prawns on skewers with garlic/lime juice, some chicken etc.

Any ideas are welcome (no Spam please B)

And I promise not to cheer too loudly when England score. ;) **== :spank: ;)

I like to make "Bo's" burgers. Bo is Vietnamese for dad and the burgers are Asian inspired. I can get the exact recipe later if you want. It consists of a marinade of Hoisin, Soy, Fish and Oyster sauces and a few other things that slip my mind at the moment. Let me know if you want the proper recipe. I usually take liberties with the recipe, yet they always turn out great!

My wife and I throw summer dinner parties ALL the time, and here are a few recipes that ALWAYS wow. We are foodies, so feel free to downgrade ingredients if it doesn't suit you. Everything we use is organic, unless I specify otherwise.

Summer Burgers
For 4-6:
1 lb 80/20 ground beef
1 lb ground buffalo
2 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
sliced mushrooms (preferably wild, but crimini or whatever you can find)
Gruyere (or other flavorful medium cheese)
Onions
2-3 avacados
1 lemon
Salt & pepper
garlic powder
Olive oil
Aioli

Make the aiolo (easy way is mayonaise, minced garlic, olive oil, a bit of lemon, & cracked black pepper. for this, I like to add a little mustard for some zing and acidity)

freshly baked, chewy rolls for buns, preferably sourdough

Slice & saute the onions and mushrooms, until almost caramelized

Mash the avocados and mix with lemon juice and pinch of salt


Mix beef and buffalo, season to taste with salt, pepper, and a little garlic powder. Make into patties and grill - flip once, adding cheese after to melt.

Lightly grill each bun, and spread with aioli. Layer cheesy burger, grilled onions & mushrooms, and mashed avocado; top and serve!

This goes amazingly well with chicken also, and I like my chicken breasts pretty spicy with this.

I'll post others, but this is all I have time for. Enjoy! =p~

Stains I'll keep an eye out for a recipe or two for you. For a brit I do quite a bit of bbqing myself but being jobless at the minute can't really afford to buy much so over the past couple of years have had to go the usual route of burgers, sausage etc. I refuse to buy cheap and nasty though. Won't go below 65% meat for sausages and below 85% for burgers. I sometimes do fish (depends what I can get hold of) with chili, corriander and lime. You can do that en papillote (in paper), but since baking parchment will burn on the barbie you can do it in foil. I also have a Mexican cookery book that has stuffed steaks with chili and cheese sauce.

Hey Stains, here's the Bo's burgers recipe. Like I said I usually take liberties with the recipe, sometimes doubling an ingredient, and it still turns out great.

1 lb Ground Beef
1 tsp Fish Sauce
1 tsp Soy Sauce (usually double or more :) )
1 tsp Oyster Sauce
1 tsp Hoisin Sause (usually double or more :) )
1/4 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Black Pepper

Combine and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 15-minutes. The longer the beef marinates the more flavorful it becomes.

Cook to your preference.
__________

It's a really forgiving recipe, so just use your best judgment. I've done the bread crumb trick and I've even added an egg a few times. Just go all out with the ingredients, but not too much or the patties won't stick.

Let me know if you go with the Bo's burgers. Cheers!

We really love buffalo as well, but since it's generally nowhere near 80/20 you get the extra fat from the beef to add some juiciness. Also, it appeals more to people who 1)have never had buffalo before, and 2) don't like the idea of eating buffalo (until they try this, anyway :devil:

I didn't plant a garden this year :( because we're moving in a couple weeks :), otherwise I'd be right with you there on the basil front, RC. Last year I had 17 plants!

...You know, pesto freezes exceptionally well; just make it and put it in ice cube trays (or other small containers) to freeze, and save for later. the color comes out a bit darker when reheated, but everything else is just great!

While cooking our roast dinner today I decided to make yorkshire puddings. (typical English accompaniment to a roast dinner). Unfortunately I put them in the smaller top oven and halfway through cooking they got too big and stuck to the top of the oven. Next time the stuffing goes In there and the yorkies go In the main oven. First time I've made yorkies puds since we got the new oven.

For anyone that wants to make 12 huge yorkshire puds here Is the recipe:
4 large eggs,
150g plain flour
300 mls milk
Pinch of salt
Fat.

Heat the oil in a yorkshire pudding tray at 220c until smoking, add the batter mix quickly so that the oil doesn't cool too much, the very hot oil will start the cooking process. Place in the oven at 220c for 20-25 mins,then turn down to 180 for 10 mins. The high heat will make them rise and crisp up the outside, the lower temperature will finish off the cooking on the inside. If you want you can take them out the tray once finished and turn them upside down on a rack/cooker shelf and cook them upside down for a few minutes to get rid of any excess oil. Next time I cook some I'll get a pic posted on here.

Sounds lovely, JB. I love grilled pork chops! Here is a pic of the Beer Can chicken which I am doing tonight. Also on the grill are Potatoes which have been cut into very large slices and then had the middle partially dug out. I then wrap the potatoes with a slice of thick cut, smoked bacon and put them on the grill. They will cook "indirectly" along with the chix and when all are done I will fill the middle "hole" with a nice, grated sharp cheddar and allow the cheese to become bubbly and melty. Oh, and my wife will make some sort of veg (which I won't eat, I'm a meat and potatoes sort. But I have to admit that the veg looks nice on the plate and I'll have a little....just to head off the inevitable nagging).

Also on the grill are Potatoes which have been cut into very large slices and then had the middle partially dug out. I then wrap the potatoes with a slice of thick cut, smoked bacon and put them on the grill. They will cook "indirectly" along with the chix and when all are done I will fill the middle "hole" with a nice, grated sharp cheddar and allow the cheese to become bubbly and melty. Oh, and my wife will make some sort of veg (which I won't eat, I'm a meat and potatoes sort. But I have to admit that the veg looks nice on the plate and I'll have a little....just to head off the inevitable nagging).

That looks friggin' awesome and is making my mouth water. Going downstairs right now to nag the wife about dinner...

I weed killered MOST of the weeds around the house today as well as cut both lawns then measured up for a new fence and patio. Got to save up for those. Little house, HUGE garden! Pity it kept clouding over but thankfully no rain. Since June it's rained on and off nearly every day. Since last weekend we've had a couple of wet-ish days but the rest have been quite nice. I've even manged to get some of my tan back. Not really been nice enough to BBQ though. Oh yeah, need to buy a new one of those after my last one got stolen. :(

Tonight we had a bit of a throwback from my bachelor days. This was made when I had near to nothing left in the way of food.

Boil enough rice to cover a dinner plate. Cut up 4-5 rashers of smoked bacon per person. Cook this off with half a large onion or a small onion (chopped). Chuck this on top of the rice. Cover with couple handfuls of grated cheese (preferably cheddar). Add ketchup to taste. Mix together and tuck in.

For anyone that wants to make 12 huge yorkshire puds here Is the recipe:
4 large eggs,
150g plain flour
300 mls milk
Pinch of salt
Fat.

Heat the oil in a yorkshire pudding tray at 220c until smoking, add the batter mix quickly so that the oil doesn't cool too much, the very hot oil will start the cooking process. Place in the oven at 220c for 20-25 mins,then turn down to 180 for 10 mins. The high heat will make them rise and crisp up the outside, the lower temperature will finish off the cooking on the inside. If you want you can take them out the tray once finished and turn them upside down on a rack/cooker shelf and cook them upside down for a few minutes to get rid of any excess oil. Next time I cook some I'll get a pic posted on here.

Following on from my last disastrous effort yorkshires in the top oven. here are some pics of the ones I made today.

Skipton, as in North Yorkshire? It's only about 60 or 70 miles from me.
Anyway, I'm getting quite back in to cooking again. I know Its not too exciting but I made cottage pie tonight. For those that dont know what it is, it's minced beef with diced onion and carrot with gravy and whatever else you decide to put in. Cooked and placed in a dish and topped with mashed potatoes, then put in the oven to crisp up the top of the mash. Some people put cheese on top of the mash, but like I did tonight, I prefer to put cheese in the mashed potatoes. cheesy mash, mmmmmmm.
It's my mothers 50th birthday next week and she has decided to have an Italian theme party and I have volunteered to do pizza. From scratch. Not cooked those for a very long time now, but if I remember rightly the recipe I have for the dough makes enough for about 4 pizzas. I use a really easy Jamie O recipe for simple tomato sauce using olive oil, tinned tomatoes, garlic and basil and I top the pizzas with mozzarella and some more basil. I think I may have to mix It up a bit and add some extra toppings on some of them.

Shepherd's pie over here is made using lamb mince (lamb, shepherd). Cottage pie is made with beef mince. As far as I'm aware that's the only real difference. I quickly looked it up as I didn't realise that you Canadians ate either and from what I read it's shepherds pie over there whether you use beef or lamb mince.

Hey JB, there is a similar recipe which you may enjoy. This one is a very traditional French-Canadian dish which is filled with ground/minced pork. It's called Tourtiere (pronounced tort-chair) and is made with a pie crust instead of mashed potatoes. My wife was born in Montreal (although she is Anglo) and she makes a wicked good Tourtiere. For some reason we always seem to have it in the Fall.

Here is a link to a recipe for Tourtiere (Note: we don't put in mushrooms...'cuz I can't stand those chewy little bastards! :sick: ): http://www.canadianliving.com/food/cooking_school/tourtiere_recipe_and_instructions.php

Since we are still somewhat skint but also trying to get stuff in the cupboards freezer used up, I am not making a traditional Sunday roast tonight but instead am making a nice warming mince and dumplings. For those that don't know what is in a British dumpling, basically it's made from Beef fat (usually from around the kidneys) with flour (self raising or plain with a raising agent) bound together with a little water. I usually cook down a diced onion and carrot then add the beef mince and cook that down with some Worcester sauce, beef stock, (a little red wine if we have some in the house) and then add some peas and usually some chopped carrot, transfer it to an oven proof dish and add the dumplings. Some people like to cook the dumplings without turning them but I find they become too hard so halfway through cooking I turn mine so that they absorb the flavours all the way through and they cook thoroughly but are still soft to eat.
