Thanks, it was very good. We haven't had it in a while.

Yes, Tokyo style, as that's where my wife is from.

Agree about the Professionals program. We used to watch it and think i recall that episode.

Tonight, my wife changed it up a little and cut the cabbage pieces a bit larger, as well as the Japanese leek.

Said it before, but really think it's something lots of folks here would enjoy. Remember the first time i had it, decades ago, whilst still getting used to the cuisine there and thought it was great and very easy to understand.

Believe it or not I've never had them before.
https://www.thekitchn.com/smas...rger-recipe-23022633

Made the caramelized onions this afternoon https://jessicainthekitchen.co...y-and-life-changing/ and tonight a pair of smashburgers for dinner. Several new-to-me tricks. Spread a very thin coating of mayo on the underside of each half of Pepperidge Farms onion buns and toasted them in a clean cast iron pan. Nice.

Grilled some sliced large white mushrooms. Added those to the onions under a slice of melted white American cheese. Made one sandwich with a slice of tomato and lettuce leaf. The other without the "salad."
*No pictures as they were consumed quickly while hot.* Big Grin

Quite a difference from the thick juicy burgers I normally make. These smashburgers had nice flavorful crunchy bits but remained juicy inside despite the thinness which rather surprised me. Regardless they were damned good! Smile

Pasta e faglioli with homemade Italian bread to sop it up.



I've never made this before and it was dang good. Kind of an Italian chili.

Mrs. Warhorse made this dinner tonight, as she does most meals. Shrimp cocktail, roasted asparagus, pan seared sockeye salmon, and TATOR TOT'S! Smile

Quinoa.

A vegetable with all nine of the essential amino acids. Easy to cook, and I find it to be quite tasty. Lots of dietary fiber, too.

Tried the Baked Feta Pasta that all the kids on the interwebs are raving about. (It's apparently the latest "viral recipe".)

It was actually pretty tasty.


Ingredients
-2 pints (17 1/2 ounces / 500 grams) cherry or grape tomatoes
-4 cloves garlic, halved lengthwise
-1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
-Kosher salt
-1 block (7 ounces / 200 grams) Greek feta cheese
-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
-Freshly ground black pepper
-12 ounces medium-length dried pasta, such as campanelle, rigatoni or rotini
-Fresh basil leaves, for serving


1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2) In a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, combine the tomatoes, garlic and 1/4 cup of the olive oil. Sprinkle with some salt and toss to coat.

3) Place the feta cheese in the center of the tomatoes and garlic, top with the remaining olive oil, and sprinkle the entire dish with red pepper flakes and a little black pepper.

4) Bake on center rack for about 40 minutes, until the garlic has softened and the tomatoes have burst their skins.

5) While the tomatoes and cheese bake, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to package directions until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water when draining the pasta.

6) Mash the baked feta and tomatoes in the dish with a fork or potato masher, and mix until evenly combined. Add the drained pasta, and mix with the sauce, adding the reserved pasta water as needed if it looks a little dry. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.

7) Serve with basil on top.

You should cook with a wine that you enjoy drinking.

Never use "cooking wine."

That stuff is terrible.

The purpose is to get the flavor, not the alcohol, so that is removed by the heat of the cooking process, such as using wine to deglaze the pan.

Hope that helps?



ETA: SN, those short ribs look amazing!!! WOW Big Grin

Damn Gustofer, that looks awesome. I googled it and it looks fairly easy to make. I'm not much of a cook but the wife is a great cook so I'll see if she can whip some up.

I know it looks like spaghetti but it is actually Bucatini all'Amatriciana .which is simple to make and tastes fantastic made from Bucatini (thicker pasta, tomatoes, Guanciale (fantastic ~ seasoned pork cheek) and topped off with pecorino romano cheese.
Note: You can use bacon or pancetta but guanciale is the preferred choice.
Essentially this is an alternate to Spaghettis Carbonara except sub in tomatoes/sauce for the oil, onion and garlic.

I used this recipe and did half hot Italian sausage and half burger for the meat. Good stuff.

Thanks. Looks easy enough, plus we have all the ingredients except for the pasta.

We prefer red, as well.

For most pasta sauces and such, we pick up little four pack bottles of chardonnay. They work well for the application.

We like to make pasta with bacon, lots of garlic, and spinach. I use the chardonnay to help build the sauce...

So, not sure what issues were had previously? The sweet wines didn't work?

I use sweet wines like muscato, reisling, gerw, for clear / white sauces with lots of garlic since sweet goes well with garlic. I’ll use a variety of reds for rich tomato based sauces depending on who’s eating - some people like when I use Cabernet or merlot. Usually, The more herbs and richer the sauce, the deeper the wine. Others prefer Pinot or zin. Always something drinkable with the dish. Don’t need a whole bottle and don’t want leftover.
