DL Epicure: What are you having for dinner?

I am hungry.

Sausage crumble with squash, rotel tomates and parm. Had to use up this Jimmy Dean sausage before it expired. It had another month to go, but I know me; if I didn't use it now, it would sit in my fridge until it died.

R16, have you or anyone here ever tried Whole Foods organic frozen brown rice? It's cheap and it contains nothing but brown rice and it's delicious. I add a little butter and salt and it's the best brown rice I've ever tasted. I bought these organic/grass fed frozen meatballs to have with it and without even adding anything to the meatballs, like a sauce, it was a great meal and just 3 of those little meatballs was filling. Maybe it was the fiber in the rice that was filling. Either way, yum.

It was a cool, rainy day so I made a pot of beef gulyas and had a salad later. I also wanted to start using up what is left from my winter potatoes, so it all went fine. As simple as much of it is, I do think Hungarian and Central European traditional dishes get passed over when they offer some fine versions of familiar fare.

I spend a lot of time in northern Italy, Provence, New Orleans and Thailand in my kitchen, so a trip to Pest or Minsk or parts of India (working on Puducherry recipes) or the African Maghreb keeps things from slipping into a rut.

R24 I do a version of chicken cacciatore (without mushrooms but you could add)

In a large stock pot, sauté rough cut carrots, celery, zucchini and onion in olive oil for a couple of minutes. Add chopped garlic and cook for a minute or so. Add chicken. Add a large can of whole tomatoes. Add oregano, thyme, basil and black pepper and simmer for about a half hour. Break up tomatoes, turn heat down to low, cover pot and let stew another half hour or longer (the longer it cooks the more the chicken will come off the bone). If you like a thicker sauce add tomato paste (either when cooking the vegetables or after you break up the tomatoes). You can do this in a slow cooker as well.

I like to serve with pasta or spaghetti squash.

I received a big amount of stew veggies from my recent safeway delivery. I didn't order them, but was charged $5.

The mix consisted of halved new potatoes, carrots, purple and white onion quarters. Recipe follows:

Put a bit of water in dish to cover the bottom and make steam for the veggies Throw in the veggies. Sprinkle veg with 1 tsp Knorr dry chicken bouillon (in a jar). stir it around a bit. cover top with saran wrap. Place in microwave covered and cook in 3 min increment to about 10 min total. Stir veg.

Test with a fork and when veg are soft, add a couple of tablespoons of butter. Stir this thoroughly throughout and you will see that you have made a lovely sauce for your stew. Add some fresh ground pepper.

This absolutely delicious and except for the butter practically no calories! It is essential that you use only Knorr dry chicken bouillon .Use only real butter!

[quote]oh i want your pesto recipe.

R29 - I put 1/4 cup each raw almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, pignoli & pistachios in a food processor. (I grind them as much as possible because I like a smooth pesto.)

Then in a blender I put 1 oz basil and 2 TB flat leaf parsley that I chop a bit, 1/4 tsp coarse black pepper, 1/4 cup + 2 TB EVOO, 3 garlic cloves (that I put through a garlic press), 1 TB melted butter, the ground nuts & 1/2 cup water and make it as smooth as possible. (You have to have a good blender for this because the the sauce is [bold]really[/bold] thick.

That makes enough sauce for about a lb of pasta. (I personally like Seggiano's tagliatelle.)

BTW I don't add salt to the sauce; I salt only the pasta water.

Before the pasta is done, I reserve about 3/4 cup of the pasta water.

Then to the drained pasta, I mix in the sauce (as best I could), add about half the reserved pasta water to better mix in the sauce, add 1 oz each grated pecorino and parmigiano cheeses, and then finally most of the remaining reserved water

I saw this recipe in some Sicilian cookbook years ago, and I like it as a change of pace to traditional pesto sauce.

I made a baked lemon chicken with pasta.

baked a breast a 325 for about 40 minutes in:

about 1/4 stick of butter, maybe a little more, idk olive oil about half a large lemon several shakes of garlic powder (was too lazy to slice actual garlic) several shakes of red pepper flakes couple shakes of paprika a bit of salt

boiled pasta. sliced up chicken, added that with the sauce it was baked in to pasta (after I'd strained the pasta, sue me). Then added a bit more of all of the above, more butter, spice, oil, etc., and some cheap sauvignon blanc to the pot. Cooked until everything was melted, the smell of the wine had died down, then added a bit more lemon.

Kudos if you even made the crust yourself. I don't have the energy to even butter a piece of store bought bread or go out to buy the bread. If I can't get it delivered I do without it. I just pull a piece out of the bag and eat it as is and eat some cold cut or cheese out of the package. I don't even make an actual sandwich anymore. That would require grabbing out two slices of bread and I'm too pooped.

There are two food factions on DL.

1. Babytasters who subsist on prepared foods. No fish or other seafood because that's "nasty." There's another active thread about vegetables; some posters don't like vegetables as a category.

2. "Gourmets": everything is so easy to whip up, only takes 25 steps and a fully-stocked pantry, fridge, and freezer. Even if the topic is "my arm is in a sling; help me not eat fast food"; their advice would be to truss and roast a guinea fowl.

I don't cook nearly as much as I used to, but last night I made the effort for my husband's birthday. Two days earlier, I dropped a couple of prime-grade chuck short ribs (vacuum-packed with sprigs of rosemary) into a sous vide bath set at 131º F and cooked them for 48 hours. The technique results in a marvelously tender short rib that is still medium-rare. I topped those with a compound butter made with Gorgonzola, caramelized shallots and garlic and a couple of browned-butter seared sea scallops. The sides were simple; a baked russet potato with the fixings and grilled zucchini dressed with a balsamic glaze.

Today has been an uneventful food day for me. I'm meeting up with family tomorrow evening for our Easter dinner. My dad is making manicotti and a salad.

Last night I made a sort of Cajun Alfredo with shrimp and vegetables.

You need to start boiling the water for the pasta first, then start the sauce.

Sauce is olive oil, butter, heavy cream, but I use half and half (not because of calories, but because I'm a cheap bitch and tend to have better results anyway).. parmesan cheese, garlic, red pepper flakes, and a white pepper based Cajun seasoning.

Then add sliced zucchini and yellow squash to the sauce a little after you've brought the pasta to a boil. Other vegetables work well. Just do whatever you want to do here.

After the pasta is done, add to sauce. Then add raw shrimp, keep working it in as the vegetables cook. Once you can tell the shrimp is done, you're good. Add some lemon if you want, I prefer it, but not necessary.

I rarely eat pork, but if someone offered me a plate of top-notch ham and deviled eggs, maybe some sort of stuffed celery, I'd be all over it. Those foods really can be fantastic at times.

R125, I ordered Opies Pickled Walnuts (imported from England) on Amazon, but it appears they're even available on the Walmart website. The Beef Stroganoff I made with them turned out very rich.

by Anonymousreply 13404/04/2021

Good grief, R134, that's one obscure ingredient. Which company do I hate more: Amazon or Walmart? Walmart's product costs a few dollars more than Amazon's and both are more than I want to spend -- maybe I'll just wait until someone I know is travelling to England and ask him/her to bring me a jar. They do look good, though.

R172, good tomatoes are getting hard to find. Supermarket varieties have become quite bland and I don't know why. I have been getting organic ones, preferably beefsteak or heirloom ones. Is it because of the pesticides and such, maybe?

by Anonymousreply 174Last Friday at 7:26 PM

I think it's because they ship them, green/unripe and force them to 'ripe' with... nitrogen? when they get where they need to be

by Anonymousreply 175Last Friday at 7:32 PM

Yeah--the only way to get good tomatoes is to buy them in season from a farmstand or farmers market. Even hothouse tomatoes, which seem to be making an unexpected comeback, grown fresh are usually pretty flavorless, If you live some place where they don't grow, you're out of luck.

Tuna on hearty toasted white bread with bacon and tomatoes. Finally mastered the perfect tuna. Followed a recipe from Pinterest. Drain the tuna almost dry. Nuke the chopped onions in a little olive oil; mix it with chopped eggs, relish, Dijon mustard and a generous amount of mayonnaise. This is the best tuna salad that I’ve ever had that wasn’t from the delicatessen.

I stopped by the fish market this morning and picked up some beautiful 2 pound whole sardines. I'm going to debone and fillet them, spread them with my tomato provencal recipe, then roll them up and bake for a perfect lunch.

by Anonymousreply 196a day ago

This orange beef recipe is the best that I’ve ever made. It’s truly restaurant quality. It’s from NYT Cooking, so I’ll have to copy and paste.

INGREDIENTS FOR THE SAUCE: 1 tablespoon neutral oil 1 1 1/2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced 2 tablespoons orange zest, plus the juice of one orange 3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced ¼ cup light brown sugar ¼ cup rice vinegar (do not use seasoned rice vinegar) ¼ cup soy sauce 1 tablespoon fish sauce FOR THE BEEF: 1 large egg white 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 pinch kosher salt 1 boneless rib-eye steak, approximately 1 to 1 1/2 pounds, cut into 1-inch pieces ¼ cup neutral oil 6 scallions, white and green parts cut into inchlong pieces and separated 2 to 4 dried red chiles, or to taste

PREPARATION Make the sauce: Heat oil in a small sauce pan set over medium-high heat. When it begins to shimmer, add ginger, jalapeño and orange zest and stir to combine. Sauté mixture until ingredients soften, approximately 2 to 3 minutes, then add garlic and continue cooking until it softens, approximately 1 to 2 minutes longer. Add orange juice, brown sugar, rice vinegar, soy sauce and fish sauce to pan and stir to combine. Allow mixture to come to a boil, then lower the heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until it thickens and reduces by half, approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the meat: Combine egg white, cornstarch and salt in a bowl. Add steak, tossing to coat the meat with the batter. In a large skillet or wok set over high heat, heat oil until it shimmers and is about to smoke. Add beef to the pan or wok in a single layer and cook without stirring until the bottoms of the pieces are crisp and golden, approximately 60 to 90 seconds. Add white pieces of scallion and chiles to the pan, then turn the beef pieces over and cook the other sides, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes more for medium-rare. Transfer to a platter. Pour orange sauce into the hot pan or wok, let it boil and stir it as it thickens. Add meat and white scallions and stir to coat with the sauce. Return meat and sauce to the platter and scatter green scallions over the top. Serve with steamed broccoli and white rice.
