Recently found a fast food treat that is the BOMB! Called a Steak Quesarito from Taco Bell. Was hungry as I went to the store and had not ate anything so just wanted something quick to put on my stomach. Man those things are delicious!

Nice to have noticed this thread. 

 

I love COOKING AND EATING!!! I try to follow a 'Mediterranean' diet, but ofcourse I also eat a lot of local South African dishes. Will share on this thread. :)

 

I like to bake my own bread,  but sometimes there is not enough time to cook and make a bread- I think that is where this recipe comes from- bread dumplings made in a chicken curry. It is what it says, cook your bread in the curry sauce.

Black Angus Rib-eye steak, nicely marbled. And my special butter and blue cheese, bacon, and garlic spread. Two full heads of garlic have the tops cut off, put into tinfoil, and olive oil poured on top before twisting the tinfoil up. The heads are then placed in the oven at 400 degrees for twenty minutes. The cloves get soft like butter, and those are blended into the blue cheese, butter, bacon. Then spread on that steak and enjoy! I sure did.

So, the garlic counts as your veggie? It works for me........................

Coop, that's the only thing I get at TB is a Steak Quesarito. At this time I'm driving to work drinking coffee, OJ and Kratom. Yuppers, very nutrition packed.

So tonight we did up a 'what ya got stew' version of red beans and rice. First we pulled a section of some pre-cooked 'ready to eat' kielbasa (pork) from the freezer. Once thawed I gave it three hours of smoke on the smoker. Two hours of ambient temp smoke, the burning pellets raised the temp to about 42F in the smoker. Followed with an hour of 100F smoke (I find things take smoke flavor better if they are cooking during its application, even if they are not cooking fast.)

Fresh peppers, fresh onion, minced garlic (all grown in our garden fresh) and the kielbasa sliced into medallions were sautéed in a little olive oil.

Then that was added to some left over hot pepper relish, and left over tomato sauce (both home made, and canned). Add to that one pint of home canned black beans (I said it was a 'what ya got' version). This was cooked down for an hour or two, until flavors blended and sauce thickend.

Then this was served over steamed long grain white rice (god bless my rice cooker).

A few splashes of some Franks Hot Sauce over the top of my bowl, and a slice of some freshly baked French bread on the side....

It is some pretty fine comfort food by my measure.... Sorry no pics, I already ate it all.


What did you make for dinner tonight..?

Making a big pan of buns tonight and have a hunk of pork loin in the slow cooker with some spuds, onions and garlic... forgot to get carrots and celery.  I'll make a slaw to go with it though, instead.

 

I usually make bread rather than buns so we'll see how they turn out.

 

Well, not too bad, I guess...  They're kind squished in there like sardines but good eatin' none-the-less.

Looks like some damn fine comfort food right there my good Smurf :) Do you mix up your dough in a bread machine?

I would like to know if anyone here ever cooks whole chickens in a Dutch oven? I haven't yet, but am going to try one tonight.

My plan is to put some sliced onion, celery, parsley, thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper in the birds cavity, then in the pot, lid on @375F for 30min.
Add potatos and some chicken broth if it needs liquid, cook another 25min.
Take the lid off and turn the oven up to 420F for 15min or so to brown the bird.

I'll report back on how it turns out. Wish me luck :)

I do make my own dough in a stand mixer.  Don't ask for recipe though cause I don't use 'em.

 

I have cooked chicken, stuffed peppers and pork in dutch oven but only outside on/in the backyard fire pit.  I always put potatoes in right at the start and I prob. wouldn't add broth.  Adding that stuff will knock the temp down and you'll have to start cooking all over again, esp with chicken.... Whatever you do, I'd suggest a meat thermometer to check for doneness.  Low and slow, for Juicyness.

 

Luck, man!

It turned out very good. It took about 35min longer then the recipe I was following said it would. I pulled it when the thigh temp reached 180F.

It stayed very moist cooking it this way, almost as moist as a brined bird, IMHO. I may well brine the bird before I try this method again, as I like the flavor and salt penetration that you get with brining. But all in all, I think this was a success, and I think its a good recipe to have in my repertoire.

I never take photos of my lunch but just for you guys.
Im eating north indian thali with pakora, tangy sauce and pickle.
Theres the rice with cumin seeds through it, potato and spinach, potato and chick peas and a dall.
The pakora is potato and spinach in chick pea batter.
You normally get chapati too but the bread gives me bread baby all afternoon.
They keep coming and filling it up the thali plate until you say stop :)
