Simmered in the last of the turkey stock made from our fried Thanksgiving turkey cut with a bit of regular roasted turkey stock. Was good.

Fancy-Pants Supper On The Cheap-ish

– Beer can chicken rubbed with home-made Essence over a PBR because I can’t bring myself to buy cheaper beer and it needs nothing fancy. Roasted over indirect heat in my Weber kettle. Yes, I used briquettes rather than lump charcoal. No, I am not ashamed.

– Boiled, buttered redskin potatoes. Liberally seasoned with flakey-grained kosher salt and black pepper.

– A fresh salad with some veggies that needed using up.

– Bánh chuối nướng for desert from this recipe because one of the in-laws sent some just this side of brown ripe bananas home with my wife. The bananas didn’t turn purple, though.

– Vanilla ice cream with the desert because my wife asked for it.

Too bad there wasn’t any light for pictures. Not that I would have had the patience for it with a crispy chicken carved in front of me.

Note To Self

Stir-Fried Pork Thing

  • Pork loin, sliced thin
  • Soy sauce
  • Sesame oil
  • Ginger (I used powdered,but fresh grated would be amazing if it had been on hand)
  • Cayenne (or whatever other chile)
  • Crushed garlic

Leave to marinade for a few minutes to an hour. Make just enough liquid to coat and be absorbed by the meat.

  • Stir-fry in death-rage hot skillet or wok until baaaaarely done, maybe even a bit under.
  • Set aside after draining.
  • Stir-fry thinly sliced onions, teeny batoned carrot, and bell pepper (I used red)
  • Corn starch
  • Add in some soy sauce to start deglazing the pan.
  • Sesame seed in (I’d use a touch less next time)
  • I didn’t, but Sriracha would be great.
  • A dash of water
  • Thicken sauce, kill the heat, return the pork, and fold in thinly sliced raw garlic.
  • The garlic will soften and lose some harshness from residual heat.
  • Serve over fresh steamed white rice.

I want to tinker with this a bit and it is here to keep me forgetting. Edit: Salt and pepper, but those should go without saying…

Also, Neocon can vouch for this being pretty tasty.

Game-Changer

I just made breakfast using Gordon Ramsay’s method for scrambled eggs:

It is awesome. I can also confirm that mushrooms roasted that way are amazing if you leave them in the pan long enough to fill the hollow with their own juice, especially with thinly sliced grilled chicken or beef.

Homemade khinkali:

They could have been pulled out of the pot a few minutes sooner, but were delicious.

Administrator Edit: Hey, Neocon, we did not eat the tips! And it is a shame we ran out of the wine you left, because it would have gone very well with them.
