Okay, makes sense using two temperatures as with french fries. However, for doing at home, that's an extra step and extra time, but it solves the issue with thicker cuts.

My wife would have no patience for it...

It's cold today. I could go for some of that chili, extra spicy please. And maybe with a side of soft warm french bread.

Pork chili verde.

I have some leftover pork ribeye roast that I had smoked Monday or Tuesday (they're blurring together) so I diced that up and threw it in the crockpot.

Then, I made up a batch of salsa verde in the blender and dumped that in the crockpot.

Then, I dumped in a can of pinto beans into the crockpot.

Normally, I thin it out with some chicken or vegetable stock but I didn't this time. I'll know in an hour if that was a good or bad decision.

UPDATE: Not thinning out with stock was a great decision. The texture was perfect and both the gf and I loved it.

I'm making menchi katsu. I have some wagyu ground beef. Not sure what menchi means. But basically it's like using a hamburger prepared in tonkatsu style (hamburger patty coated with flour, then egg wash, then panko) and deep fried.

Usual accompaniments are same as tonkatsu - finely sliced cabbage and sauce. But tonight, given the chill, I may make put it over rice with some (japanese style) curry sauce.

Hope your menchi turned out to your liking and think that would be great with curry sauce over rice Smile

(don't tell my wife; she was surprised when i put leftover meat sauce she made from scratch on rice nuked from the freezer, rather than boiling pasta, when i was rushing for lunch, today)

Just asked my wife about the meaning of menchi and she couldn't say... she thinks it might come from "minchi," which is sort of like minced and the word we use for ground meat, such as hamburger or ground pork.

Had my first menchi, this past visit, when we were at Asakusa shrine with relatives. It was a bit greasy and disappointing. My wife said the best ones are from butcher shops, just like the best croquettes are from there, but small butcher shops are disappearing there just as they have here Frown

That looks fantastic!!!

Great plating, by the way Smile

That menchi looks perfect Big Grin

Are those tsukemono (pickles) on the side?

(it's kinda fun to be able to ask you questions Wink )


Think you've been watching too many historical dramas, LOL!

Kinda. I love pickles / side dishes. There are so many varieties across Japanese and Korean cuisines. I make it once in awhile but usually just buy.

In between both, I use short cuts. This may sound weird and gross but the tsukemono here is daikon radish I put into the liquid left over from a jar of Clauson pickles; I just added some sugar to the liquid, put daikon wedges in and let it soak a couple of days. I know, I’m lazy and it sounds bad. But actually it’s edible. Smile

When I say yo wa in a sushiya (sushi restaurant) with a straight face, the chef will usually look at me strangely for a sec then bust out laughing.

Not weird, genius perhaps, but not weird.

We love kimchee and there's a jar of nappa in the fridge, but we're anxious to get more of the daikon kimchee we got at the Korean market before. It's just a heck of a trek, but thank you kindly for the incentive. It was delicious!

I appreciate your innovation with making your own quick daikon tsukemono, sir Smile

Oh, now you've got me thinking about butakimuchi (pork and kimchee). Love how the flavor of the kimchee transforms with cooking and how it flavors the pork. Think we posted about maybe 20 pages back?

Nothing fancy... Cajun Andouille sausage and mac n cheese.

The later was made with small elbow pasta (al dente before baking), sharp cheddar, parmesan reggiano, milk, sour cream*, and panko crumbs. Big Grin

(* I prefer this to either a roux or eggs mixed into the milk)

I made a fail for dinner. Friend posted this video on FB and I thought it looked good. You roast feta and tomato together, smash with fork, stir in spaghetti, top with basil. Ended up too salty and too strong of a feta taste, I wonder how it would work with 1/2 feta, 1/2 mozzarella? Probably too stringy?

Definitely looks better than it tasted, not sure if I'm going to eat or throw away the leftovers.

Wife is on the Daniel Fast for Lent so I am trying to hang with her as much as possible so we made cashew chili Sunday Night.


It was reeally good, but if it was me, after three weeks w/o meat of any kind I'd probably smash my truck through the front door of our local BBQ joint in a meat deprivation-induced fit of insanity.

Had some leftover/unused chicken breasts and a few ingredients from the local store and I'm enjoying this : https://juliasalbum.com/chicke...dDe53LOekmX7EnxfdCUw

of course I added onions, sauteed mushrooms and prosciutto but I almost followed the recipe.

Tonight was okonomiyaki. It's a Japanese stuffed savory pancake-pizza kind of thing you can't stop eating Wink

Quail, shot this past weekend, shown below on its way into the oven for roasting.



A liberal coating of melted butter, then some salt and lemon pepper, with a little celery just for kicks.

Sorry, I didn't stop for a pic after the roasting -- I was hungry. Big Grin




God bless America.
