Title: What's for Lunch?
Post by: euge on February 24, 2011, 12:59:53 PM
This is a "modified" bread soup dish that takes about 10 minutes to prepare.

Stale bread. In this case I used about 2/3 of a baguette that I sliced into bite-sized pieces.
One smoked chicken leg quarter de-boned and chopped.
One cup of Bavarian sauerkraut.
One cup of German potato salad.
Approx. one cup of shredded Monterrey Jack cheese.

Layer these ingredients up in a deep ceramic dish such as a crock-pot and top generously with the remaining cheese. Pour one quart of boiling chicken stock over it all and place covered in a 375F oven for at least 1 hour. I uncover for the last 15 minutes to brown the top.

Serve in bowls with a little chopped parsley.

Sorry if my plating skills are lacking. Sure is tasty, comforting and filling!

I made some kalbi beef, it was delicious!  Still working on the recipe though, it needs to be a bit sweeter with less rice wine.

Sometimes the simple things in life are best. It was PB&J today and it was very appetizing.

The older I get the more I think "simpler is better".

With all the Koreans living here, Kalbi is a very popular dish in these parts.  YUM!

Not too nosey. I'm a Radiographer with full credentials. My skills run the full gamut but feel that my specialty lays in pediatric trauma. I'm privileged enough to work on second shift so my lunch usually is around 1800-ish. Breakfast is usually around 1300 so guess I get "two" lunches lol. ;)

Pediatric trauma... you are a good man.  I wouldn't have the strength of heart to do that job.

A second-shifter.  I worked the second shift, 15:00 - 23:00 for 11 of the 15 years I worked in the power plant.  Definetly the best shift for that job. I was able to get my engineering degree at nearby University of Central Florida during the day, and study at work at night.  I was very fortunate not to have to work the rotating shifts that most of the operating crews worked.  Rotating shifts make you old before your time.

Bring a curious masochist I added up all of the hours I worked in those 15 years.  Over 15 years I averaged 54 hours per week.  Not easy to get an engineering degree working those kind of hours.  It took 10.5 years to get my degree. Lucky ting I could study at work many nights.  Lucky ting I'm still married!

I got my BFA while working full time. I'd pull 8 hour shifts as a bartender 5 nights a week. Then I'd drive 20 miles to my studio and paint till 3-4am. Drive 20 miles home and class in the morning. When I started Radiology school I quit working just to feel what it was like to go to school and have no job. :o

It was awesome. ;D

My office does b-day parties as well. Typically it's just champagne and petit fours... I've been shunned previously for making mimosas out of the champagne they have, apparently it's really good, but frankly I'd rather have beer.

Still, those Chalupas beat anything the cafeteria serves.

We make lilikoi (Hawaiian passion fruit) mimosas that no one ever turns their noses up at. But then, we don't use Perrier Jouet or DP or the likes to make them with either.

They rocked but if the tostadas and shells were toasted it would have been first class. Regardless, they beat anything our cafeteria serves. In France? I guess the French got institutional food too...

Smoked meatloaf sandwich for me...I take a lb of hamburger, a lb of italian sausage, some breadcrumbs, a couple eggs, and worcestershire sauce, some homemade ajvar, salt, pepper, fennel, and red pepper...mix all up, and place in a foil pan (the bottom of which I've perforated to let fat out).  Onto the smoker, then hot smoked (350 deg F) until done, halfway through putting a layer of good BBQ sauce on top.

Sliced, then on toast with pickles and more BBQ sauce.   Cheap and very tasty.

Clam Risotto!

2 cups Arborio rice
6 cups shrimp stock (substitute 1 cup white wine if desired) and water at end as needed.
1 small onion minced
1 cup fresh grated Parm
1 can baby clams rinsed well
1 cup chopped fresh baby spinach
1 cup chopped saute'd broccoli rab
1 tbs butter
3 tbs of olive oil
Pinch of red-pepper flake
S&P to taste at end

I used Chris Kimball's Kitchen Detective technique. Turned out as good as any risotto as I've had in a restaurant. Maybe a bit better since I made it. ;) Add butter, cheese, greens and clams at the end. I found the stock salty enough so added only a small pinch of salt to wake it up a bit.

Takes 20-30 minutes to prepare.

MMMMM. Smoked lamb's breast and chickpea curry with spinach served over whole wheat couscous.

Slightly carmelized onions and garlic and remove from pot. Sear scored left-over lamb's breast and remove from pressure cooker. Add 2 cups chicken stock onions-garlic, soaked chickpeas and spices. Bring to a boil, return lamb and seal pressure cooker. Cook for 20 minutes. Natural release. Remove lamb and add fresh spinach (couple cups packed). Return to boil and reduce a bit while spinach wilts. Add lamb back to mixture and toss. The "scored" lamb falls into bit-sized chunks.

Serve over couscous or basmati rice.

Leeks!

Trim one leek and slice in half lengthwise. Rinse any grit out. Boil in salted water for 3 minutes, remove and refresh in cold water. Drain leek halves. Keep the water boiling as this will cook the pasta too.

Top up pasta water if needed and get large skillet up medium heat. Add pasta to pot and cook 3/4 of the way. Meanwhile slice leeks and add to skillet with some olive oil and a pinch of crushed red pepper. Add salt. When pasta is ready drain and dump into skillet with a little pasta-water- about half a cup to one cup and raise the heat to high. Add a couple cups of chopped fresh spinach. Toss in pasta. Add grated reggiano at this time while the pasta is still very wet. Adjust salt if needed.
 
When the liquid is absorbed remove from heat and plate with more parm and if desired drizzle with high quality olive oil. Fresh cracked pepper.

Ahhh been a while...

Craving Chinese but don't want to spend $10 or go anywhere to get it.

Vegetable stir-fry!

1/2 green cabbage sliced thin
2 large carrots julienne'd
8oz white mushrooms sliced

2-3tbs oil (sesame and something neutral such as vegetable oil)

3tbs minced garlic
2tbs julienne'd ginger
1tbs fish sauce
1tbs soy sauce
1tbs rice wine vinegar (I used chinese black vinegar)
1tbs sugar
2tbs fermented chili-bean paste
2tbs oyster sauce

Have your mise en place ready to go. This is essential. You don't want to fumble in the fridge or have to prep anything while you do this.

Heat large wok screaming hot. If you want to use your brewing burner go for it!

Add oil and then garlic and ginger together. Immediately stir. Dump in vegetables (it will stop smoking ;D). Toss and stir to coat. Cook for a minute or so. Add everything else except oyster sauce and sauté while turning over the vegetables until liquid is gone. Turn off heat. Add oyster sauce and toss to coat.

Serve with steamed rice. Wash down with ice-cold lager.

The prep takes longer than the cooking but I had the whole thing done in less than 15 minutes. This is sort of a base recipe but you could certainly change it up and add things per your tastes. Shrimp, egg, tofu whatever. I forgot that there was a can of water chestnuts in the pantry. Will use it next time.

Feeds 2-4 people.

Post by: euge on August 07, 2012, 12:11:44 PM
Red Dragon and Brown rice that is!

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-cxvDZ9806lI/UCFfjpcvZzI/AAAAAAAAAgM/Yf-T96r2vZc/s640/2012-08-07%252013.14.54.jpg)

I used this recipe (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/red-beans-and-rice-3/Detail.aspx) as inspiration but used a bit more than called for minced garlic and red onion. I also whirled up four chile de arbol in the spice grinder since there was no cayenne in the house.

Wasn't about to go buy a ham-hock but remembered there was the bone from a pork-butt with some meat left on it in the freezer. Thawed it out and rubbed cure all over and rested in the fridge overnight. Then six hours in the smoker. Delicious on it's own I decided to still sacrifice it in the pot of beans.

Thought that the 3-4 hour simmer would be too long but that's right on target. The meat was falling off the bone in about 2.5 hours with the lid on and then another 1.5 with the lid half on to reduce the beans and make a nice gravy. Added a little bit of diced smoked sausage near the end per the recipe.

Served with the rice- the Red Dragon was brought back from Vietnam by my brother and lends a nice color contrast, nutty flavor and firm texture. The extra chile de arbol definitely kicked it up and proved to be a good substitute for the cayenne pepper. Condiment is homemade chow-chow relish.

As a first try I must say this is the best- far better than I've had in cajun-style restaurants or even Popeye's red beans.

A simple dish: Steamed-rice with the last of the smoked chuck. Fizzy kim chee, pickled carrots and jalapeños, cilantro and crispy fried onions. A little soy to jazz it up. Lacks a ginger-sesame component. Will fix that next time.

Amazing how much money I save every month by not eating out. ;D

Working from home today, so I can actually post pics and whatnot without getting s*** from the coworkers :-P

Menu: BLT on multigrain, made with home made bacon of course. Some Tyrell's veggie chips, and a Goudale (in a can!) (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/813/7451).

Hey, it is breakfast time here, and that sammich looks mighty tasty Phil.
I hate feeling self conscious about taking pictures of my food to post online. ;D

Lunch.  I just packed a field breakfast/lunch.  Blueberry yogurt, banana, a couple pieces of cold wicked good pizza, mini doweled carrots, half of a suspiciously good looking green cucumber, some kinda healthy pseudo potato chips and a baggie of Whoppers made to look like Easter eggs.

I am still on coffee.
