What did you make for dinner?
Thank you. Not to say, it wouldn't be a good source of some acid. Brunswick Stew relies on an orange or two.

Removed the roast to shred the meat. Then using a spider removed the vegetables so that the wine-beef drippings liquid can be reduced for gravy. Big Grin




Nope, no pictures of the food plated as it demanded immediate consumption. Big Grin Will get a shot with some plated leftovers later. Smile Smile

Looks fantastic. I love a good pot roast dinner or stew.

Mrs. Cooker and I had planned on getting Mexican takeout for Valentines Day. They were closed. Last minute run to the store and picked up a flat iron steak, and some crab. Got some oysters for her too.

Made some crab cakes, grilled the flat iron, and she liked the oysters. Sorry, I didn’t take pics.

I started thinking about the total price at Fry’s and it wasn’t adding up. I saw three lines of items purchased. But the total was far less than expected. I looked at the receipt and realized the flat iron steaks were on sale for $2.49/lb. After dinner we went back and bought the six that were still left on the shelf. Pretty sweet to save $7.50 per pound.

Noah, talk about a STEAL! Best I get around here is $5.99/lb but our local beef and bison are outstanding. Big Grin

I am fixin' to put on a big pot of chili. It is overcast and windy today, with a bit of a chill in the air. Great weather for a big bowl of homemade chili!! My chili is likely a bit too hot/spicy for some of you folks, but it is just right for me.

Add some Fritos. Just crumple crush them up in the palm of your hand. Not too fine a crunch, but broken down a bit.

Frito Chili Pie is good stuff!!!

As you may have noticed from other of my posts, my spouse & I are recovering from COVID hospitalizations, and hence times are different for us.

We just ate our Valentines dinner tonight and used our new air frier to help reduce our level of stress. The lobster turned out great, the 2x baked potatoes turned out great, the filets wrapped in apple cured bacon were "ok".

We're learning how to use the frier but had a great night despite the fact it's 2.1 degrees outside and we just had about 6" of snow today.

Have a great night my fellow invisible friends!

Rubbed and smoked tri-tip with creamy peppercorn sauce, green beans with garlic and parmesan, and Sara La Fountain's potato salad recipe which turned out really good.

I am REAL familiar with Frito Chili Pies. I survived on them in my collage days when money was short(most of the time). I keep a bag of Fritos in my freezer all of the time for just such an occasion.

Tonight was another favorite Smile

Tonkatsu (breaded, fried pork cutlets) with very finely shredded Japanese cabbage.

Frank, that looks very tasty. Compliments to your wife. Oh and thanks for providing the translation of what the dish actually is. You guys loose me too often with foreign dish names without descriptions. Big Grin

Love tonkatsu. Now I'm hungry. I have a favorite place I always go to when in Tokyo. Have you ever tried the original tonkatsu place in Tokyo? I'm not sure if they're still open. Especially given the wuflu closures. I've always been meaning to go but may have lost my chance.

Okay - the questions and comments Smile

1) Loin or Roast? Looks like thin loin but can't tell. I usually use thicker cut roast (brined).
2) Looks like ya'll prefer Bulldog over Kagome
3) Wow, 1 tube each of karashi - you guys are serious about karashi.
4) Veggie oil? I've heard that one trick for tasty tonkatsu is to use sesame oil (or at least a good mix of sesame oil). But it's too expensive for me. I did try once and it does come out very nice.
5) Typical Japanese placement of ohashi. Across the placement rather than vertical. But why one next to the diner and one on the other side of the plate away from diner? Smile
6) The ceramic bowl looks nice.
7) I can only find the smaller panko here; I wish we could buy the larger panko like they have in Japan.

You guys seem to eat well frequently. Envy.
