Which Cooking Are You?

Recommended Posts

Yesterday was Valentine´s Day in here. My wife works late hours in such hollidays, so we celebrate at home. Buffalo mozzarella, faux pesto (pecans instead of pinoles, ´cause they are freeking expensive), Parma ham and the usual basil.

That looks amazing!

BTW, I've used Pecans in pesto, because in Texas they practically grow on trees. 😉

I found sweet corn in tn, and had to break in that particular use for my new grill...I also made chicken wings and burgers.

Once again a simple but effective dish here, mignon and pappardelle with mushrooms and Dijon sauce.  It is, still, a work in progress.

My 13 old is making his way into the kitchen, and love to slice Paris mushrooms, he says it is the most satisfying cutting experience.

This time I used a ton of clarified butter to have a perfect Maillard reaction to the reversed seared medallions.

It's Nate vs. Brisket time again.  I was able to find a whole packer in the 8lb range, which when trimmed a bit was down in the 6s, perfect for a meal + leftovers.  It's been on since 4, seems to be stalling in the low 150s, so I'll wrap it shortly and am going to try cooking this one more by feel than by internal temp.  Temps haven't seemed like very good predictors for me for tenderness so here's to hoping.

Ordered.  I guess this was what was needed to finally get me to try meat bathing.

Any recommendations on the plastic sealer?

Had leftovers from making chicken fajitas the other night so changed out meat and made steak fajitas tonight.  Marinated the steak in olive oil, lime juice, cumin, oregano, smoked paprika, and salt.  Was good with peppers, onions, and homemade pineapple mango salsa.
