This was good.

Cioppino (Italian Fishermans Stew)




Cordovian Sea Bass



If you have not had Cordovian Sea Bass it certainly is worth a try. Just got a new All-Clad Black (non-stick) 10" saute pan and this was the first try for it. For searing, I like the regular better than the non-stick. Just seems to give a better crust but they are horrible for doing something like scrambled eggs as stuff seems to stick.

This was quite good.



Brined Beef Shortribs braised in Guinness Double Stout and Beef Broth made into a Stout Gravy served with Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Root Vegetables.



We had rain coming in and comfort food sounded good. Brined the Beef Ribs using my typical Tenderquick brine. Seared them on the grill and braised them in a 300 degree oven for 3 hours with Caramelized Onion, Carrots, Garlic, a couple shakes of Poultry Seasoning, cup of Beef Broth and a bottle of Guinness Double Stout. The meat removed from the pan with the veggies and a gravy made. Very rich n beefy dish. Really hit the spot on a cold rainy night.

As a matter of fact, Ya.





Good, not great. But good. This was the Rib Roast that I had planned on using to make a Cap Steak with and didn't like the cut so I decided to just do a regular roast out of it. It was Nolan Ryan free range beef. Reminded me of when we first moved to Texas and found the beef not as good as the Mid West feed lot Beef. Plus I cooked it for 10 hours holding it just over 100 degrees and got carried away working on my yard. Realized I needed to bump up the internal temp a bit so I raised the heat to 350 to have it ready for dinner. Overcook the outside a bit doing so. OH well, but it did make killer Philly Cheese Steak sandwich's! Killer!



Did I mention it was killer?

More of the left over rib roast. Being the Chicken Pot Pies came out so good, decided to visit childhood again and make Beef Pot Pies. Probably a lot better. Delicious in fact and not a lot to it.





I had shaved the roast for Philly Sandwichs and was going to freeze what was left when I said "what the hell, try making a pot pie with it." Basically medium diced a potato and boiled it. While it was boiling I sliced some Carrot, Celery and Onion sautéing them in butter till tender. Made some commercial brown gravy. Threw everything together with some frozen Peas in a partially cooked pie shell, put some pie dough on top and baked it @400 degrees till it was brown. Felt like I was 8 years old all over again.

Honestly haven't had pot pies in probably decades. Just got a while hair and glad I did. They really are pretty good and I almost forgot the taste it has been so long. Only if I do them again, going to make my own pie dough. It was $5.00 for two pot pies as you have to buy the top piece separate. Being I don't bake, may be a good place to start. Probably make your own for less than $.50 cents and I probably can do it outside to keep the mess out of the house. Just get my leaf blower out at the end and clean up.

Center cut Red Snapper filets with fried Brussels Sprouts



Did this last night and really was quite good except I have never seen fish curl up as quick as this one did when I flipped it. Kinda took away some from the look and didn't give me a chance to really crisp the skin. Except for placing a "cooking iron" (which I don't own) on top, anyone know how to prevent this? Guess I could remove the skin but to me it adds a little flavor. (I never eat the skin)

On a side note, the fried Brussels Sprouts with fried Red Pepper was to die for. Fried them at 400 degrees and tossed them in 1 parts Thai Sweet Pepper Sauce, 1 part Rice Vinegar, 1 part Water with a splash of Fish Sauce n Sugar. Killer veggie dish!

Different one from a week ago.

Well damn..........food porn and I'm starving right about now.

Last thing we did that was kinda cool was an open face smoked pork sandwich, served on a crispy waffle with rainbow coleslaw and a nifty little BBQ aoli..........( which was nothing more than some homemade mayo with a splash of our cherry bourbon BBQ sauce and a bunch of fresh cracked black peppercorn.)

The sweetish waffle, the hickory smoked pork, sweet and tangy vinegar based rainbow slaw( similar to a good red slaw) and semi spicy aoli just seemed to work.........and it looked cool on the plate.

Sort of a takeoff on chicken and waffles( which I'm not a giant fan of) but with the smoked pork and all the other acidity working in the dish......it just flat out worked pretty good.

On My next cook I'm making me a BBQ sandwich but using eggos as the bun........I know , sounds weird..........not the first time I've ever heard that when describing a dish, lol.

Just never got into chicken n waffles mostly because it is a regional dish and you never see it here. When I used to travel visiting Atlanta, always made a habit of hitting a soul food restaraunt but I never ordered chicken n waffles.

Yeah, me neither.........

The waffle subtle sweetness did the hickory smoked pork some pretty good justice though.........not even close to traditional BBQ fare, but the vessel itself was a nice accompaniment to all the other stuff on the plate that was traditional.....( slaw, fries etc)......not going to make the weight watchers approved list, sorry.

I'll let you know how the sandwich turns out .......can see it being just goofy enough to work in the right setting too.

Haven't been home in months to make anything, over in Europe for business. Managed to score the chef's spot at &samhoud places in Amsterdam. Interesting take on some things, but not too bad. Bill wasn't too fun to pay but whatever. 2 Michelin stars.



Caviar


Eel on a kale chip (bleeeeeh)


Two ways steak with a beet salad




If you're ever in AMS, it's worth a visit if you want to impress a client or two. I did not, I showed up in jeans and an Alpinestars tshirt
