Added to the recipe database. That looks great too!

I would highly recommend Le Creuset for all your post/pans needs! Those things come with a lifetime warranty. And they are solid iron aside from the porcelain coating so ya' can't break 'em! For me it is something to look forward to along with the gas oven again ...

If you look past all the veggies, seasonings/rub and mae ploy sauce, there's a ribeye steak buried in there somewhere. There was a second pan for Renee too with the same, but I didn't bother posting it.



Basic meat (pork chops) and potatoes (and carrots and applesauce)...



Tonight is new york strips, more of those mashed potatoes (I made 14 spuds worth and froze some), and more veggies/mae ploy/mixed seasoning in the steak pan The steaks have been marinating for 2 days. Perhaps I'll toss in some pictures later if I need a break from job hunting.

NY Strips

Beef is one thing that South Dakota gets right. Many other things I find at local grocery stores just aren't up to par.

I got Costco down the street. I usually just buy their $4-$5 a pound USDA choice, inch thick sirloin steaks. Inch thick rib-eyes (again USDA choice) are $6-$7 a pound, but the sirloins are so good, I usually just buy those. I like rib-eyes with crumbled blue cheese on top, just for the double coronary

I have a cheapo gas grill on the porch that I don't worry about it raining on, so it's flame broiled steaks for dinner pretty often.

I also like the massive bag of hot wings you can get for $12. Another awesome thing that I haven't found anywhere else is Sinai Kosher Hot Dogs. The best hot dogs anyone ever ate. And the tuna fish. Anything else is cat food.

You can't exactly do all of your shopping at Costco, but the bi-weekly trip for mass quantities is one of my destinations.

Wasn't today, but last night around 8:30pm, me and my roommate went to a steak house, then the movies to watch Knowing.

I had a 10oz rib eye, medium rare, with a baked sweet potato, and steak fries.

Holy hell was it good.

Like a kidnapped firstborn.

We don't have a place that would even attempt to claim to be a supermarket around here. Nearest one called "HyVee" is 92 miles away in Pierre, and it's not half of what a common everyday Giant Eagle is.

Our beef is good, but it's not as inexpensive as one might think - steaks go from $5.99 (sirloin) to about $12.99 (prime rib/fillet) per pound. 90/10 ground chuck goes for about $3.09. The local ranches are all mandated to be inspected by the USDA, so that isn't much of an award around here. Some of the teachers here have husbands that are ranchers, so we often get past having to pay, especially when they have simple computer problems that I go out and fix.

Thanks, Ina!
I make something sort of like that. I use leftover BBQ chicken breast cubed (I usually make some extra just for tomorrow's salad), mayonnaise, a little mustard seed, a little dijon (If you don't have any of that yellow mustard works just about as good), green olives, green grapes, diced celery and croutons (or some chopped up toast)... mix er up..in the reefer to get real cold... serve on a bed of lettuce.... cracked pepper on top. The taste of green olives, celery and grapes is yummy with chicken.

Whoa healthy food. I should prolly learn what that is one day. I's had a piece of chicken, breast meat, seasoned and cooked, on bread with cheese. Been munching on cheese sandwich since, while I surf the net and drink. Good times.

Before I met Renee, Giant Eagle was about the only motivation I had to earn a decent paycheck. Amounts aren't always huge, but the variety and quality/freshness are second to none in my humble opinion. No sorting to find the best cut or the best bundle of whatever you were buying was necessary - every product exceeded my expectations. The workers made damn good livings without unreasonable product prices. Any time I had a special order (like a 12 pound precut sirloin), they just acted like I was the CEO of the business asking for it and had it ready in a day's time. Every time I had a project where I was putting together a meal for many guests, there was always someone there to help make sure that one trip covered everything. Plus, they were the pioneer of using their sales towards gasoline savings, which I used to take advantage of on a weekly basis.

Every slice of lunch meat was tender, lean, and juicy, every leaf of lettuce was green, crisp, and fresh, every grain of brown sugar was sweet and unclumped with others. I could go on for days...

Anyway, yesterday was an interesting day - was in Ft. Madison, Iowa for several job interviews (about a 10-11 hour drive from my current home), and afterwords found a brew-pub. I had:
Elk burger,
Fries,
"Nugget Brown Ale" beer, brewed on-site
Everything was very good, good enough that I bought a "growler" (half-gallon glass jug) of that beer to take home with me. If Renee and I get gigs down there, perhaps I'll be eating more elk burgers.

Don't forget to live before you die.

cottage pie (metric challenged people beware! the recipe is quite english):

Quote:
900g minced lean beef
450g white onions
3 cloves garlic
2 tbsp tomato puree
2 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves picked and chopped (if available)
25g flour
75 ml Worcestershire sauce
200 ml red wine
1 litre chicken stock
1kg potatoes, peeled and halved (use waxy rather than floury types, e.g. red skin or Desiree - the trick is not to let the potatoes get too watery)
2 egg yolks
grated cheese (can be Parmesan, extra sharp cheddar)
oil for frying
salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C or 400 degrees F
2. Heat a bit of oil in pan until smoking hot
3. Season the mince with salt and pepper
4. Fry the mince in batches
5. If you have any fat coming off the mince, drain it.
6. In another pan fry onions, garlic and thyme until soft and golden
7. Add meat and tomato puree
8. Sprinkle the flour and cook a few minutes
9. Add Worcestershire sauce and wine and cook until liquid is reduced by half
10. Add chicken stock and bring to the boil. Turn fire down and simmer until thick and glossy (about 40 min)
11. Meantime, cook potatoes in salted boiling water
12. Mash the potatoes and beat in egg yolks, add half of grated cheese
13. Remove mince from heat, cool slightly and check flavour (adjust to taste)
14. Put mince in individual or large serving dish.
15. Pipe or fork mash on top of mince, and cover with rest of grated cheese
16. Bake 30-40 minutes until crust is golden brown
Easy and great fun. I end up dumping in some mild (drinkable) vinegar and about another 75 mL of Worcestershire sauce to adjust the flavoring at the end.

Don't add more salt if you also use a stock with sodium added.

I wanna go back just for Giant Eagle...

Over Easter, I had my parents take the cross country trip from PA to SD to spend a couple days with us. We shared a single 58 oz. sirloin steak (cut after cooking) with stir fry vegetables and some red wine in the pan for good measure. I have a second one just like it - I'll try to remember to post a pic when I get to the right computer. We had about 6 sides too, in addition to some cab and ice water to drink.

A few nights ago, I went to be bistro in Detroit before the wife and I saw Sweeny Todd at the Fisher Theatre. I had quail, first time and I must say it is quite good. I was impressed with how small the bird actually is. I was expecting the animal to be about twice the size.

Anyway, that is not really the point of the post. What I was really impressed with was the fact that the chef had the nerve to not have salt and pepper on the tables. His/her food was quite good and indeed did not need additional salt and pepper.

I admire the statement that makes: "My food is fine and it tastes the way I want it to. I am not going to allow you to add anything to it." I've heard that Gordon Ramsey takes the same approach at his joints. Yeah, it is a little arrogant, but if it is true ...

Anyway, I was impressed. Will definitely be going back.

Never had quail, only pheasant. One of the best meals I believe I've ever had. That, and roasted rack of lamb. Incidentally, both meals came from the same place.

Quail is about the size of a dove. Pheasant is nearly the size of a chicken. Pheasants are the most common living bird or animal where I live, far more common than cattle or humans even.

Both are quite delicious.

If the weather holds out, I am going to have a go at a popular appetizer I decided to turn into a main dish.

Bang Bang Chicken
Quote:
1 baby gem lettuce, washed
4 smoked chicken breasts, thickly sliced
1 carrot, peeled and julienned
3 spring onions, trimmed and julienned
1 red onion, peeled and julienned
4 teaspoons sesame seeds, lightly toasted

SAUCE
250g smooth peanut butter
5 teaspoons sweet chilli sauce
5 tablespoons sesame oil
6 tablespoons vegetable oil

Whisk together the sauce ingredients in a heatproof bowl and warm them gently over simmering water in a saucepan or bain-marie. This should only take a matter of minutes. Meanwhile, separate the baby gem lettuce leaves and lay them on a large plate with the chicken slices over the top. Scatter the julienned vegetables round the chicken and spoon over the warm sauce. Sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds and serve immediately.
The key to this one is to tea-smoke the chicken, hence the need for the weather to cooperate for me.

Occasionally I try.

Actually, I decided shortly after college that I wanted to eat great food and not really pay for it. So, I learned. Now I want to ditch the chemistry job and open a restaurant. But reality tells me I would not be able to put up with constantly being pissed on by someone else in order to get to where I need to be (I don't deal with authority well, especially when the authority has gone out of their way just to piss me off, which happens a lot in that business).

Tonight it was home made jumboliya. I personally don't like it over rice, so I made some fettuccine like noodles that I added cayenne pepper to when I made the noodle dough. The "authentic" andouille sausage, shrimp, and scallops kind.

Any more specific and you will have to wire money into a paypal account. It's kinda a family secret.

Ragu + mushrooms + ground beef I used to make spaghetti sauce from scratch, but never really saw the difference if I just took some canned stuff and doctored it with some fresh oregano and garlic.
