    Re: What's for dinner?

    I got an early father's day present, a Sous vide rig. Too busy at the moment to us it but will report on findings as they float to the top of the bag.

    Picked up a half price ($15.00/ lb) Wagyu steak for dinner tonight but too tired to care. I'l probably destroy it.

    A few recent meals.


    This was pepperocini and cream cheese stuffed pork tenderloin. Some of the pickling liquid was added as well as some california peppers (even hotter) on the left side.







    This was blueberry pancake and maple syrup stuffed pork tenderloin. Hey, I think outside the box.





    Here are the tenderloins after being grilled on the weber summit. Almost ate all of them before remembering to take a picture. lol. Both were awesome. I'll be cooking them again before long.







    These are piri piri chicken kebabs grilled on the weber summit. Great great. As flavorful as it looks.





    Cheers

    You literally can't destroy it if you use the sous vide properly. I'd also have bbq (or propane torch) ready when it comes out, to give the char taste. Quick and dirty, plate it and invite Uncle Bob

    We just did the steak on the BBQ to do a taste comparison with the more affordable beef and not confusing things with added flavours or processes.

    It was tender and had a nice buttery taste. Good but I'm not sure if paying $30 a pound will be a regular event. At half price and sharing a one pound steak it's about the same price as a takeout burger combo.

    I'm going to start slow with the sous vide, maybe hot dogs, until I get the programming figured out. Keypads confuse me.

    A few more recent cooks.

    Spicy buffalo pork kebabs. Tender and so flavourful.




    Whisky and black pepper fish kebabs. Love the fish kebabs.


    Perfectly cooked!


    Here's a cook as easy as it gets. Buy a marinated whole chicken. In this case dark ale and shallot for $6.20.



    Stick chicken on spit, put spit on the weber summit grill and rotisserie until cooked (165F internal). Collect drippings for gravy. Who doesn't like real and good home-made gravy!






    Make home made mashed potatoes, these are skin-on garlic mashed. $0.75.
    My secret cream cheese add-in is highly recommended.
    These rotisserie birds make as much gravy as a turkey.
    Combine and eat!


    A great meal for four adults at under $8 total.

    Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.

    Re: What's for dinner?

    So cream cheese instead of milk? And do you use fresh garlic or the jarred minced stuff?
    I've been on a sweet potato smash kick. I bake or microwave sweet potatoes, smash, add a little butter, delish.
    And yes, smash.

    Love sweet potatoes. I often candy them, aka brown sugar and pan fry in butter after a precook.

    As for my mashed potatoes, go with a 1/4 to 1/3 of the normal amount of milk (optimally, but I often don't even have it), and add a big dollop of cream cheese as well (1/3 cup or thereabouts to eventual preferences, 1/2 cup or more with large portions). The fresher the type of garlic the better. Even at that, I typically used dried diced garlic for convenience and did here to excellent result. Remember to add some salt to bring out the garlic flavour, and add some pepper too.

    My wife made me a Father's Day dinner. Simple but yummy.
    Breaded chicken cutlets, broccoli with butter and white rice with a cream of mushroom soup sauce.

    Anyone buy beef tenderloin at the St Lawrence for steaks? Do I ever miss that.
    Ignorance is curable, Apathy not so much, but I don't care, I'll try anyway.

    we used to, and there was a guy that sold delmonico steaks about 1.5" thick, I really miss that. wifey isnt much on fat (so sad) so tenderloins sliced up makes her pretty happy.
    You can get a much better steak for much less money, but shes happy......

    20 minutes to cook, my tenderloin recipe.

    Take off silver and chain. Mold tenderloin evenly (tuck tip in). Season to taste and bring up to room temp.

    Oven to 500. Put Tenderloin in, set timer.

    After 20 mins turn oven off but DON'T OPEN OVEN. Wait one hour to remove. Tenderloin will be pink but not bloody. At this point my grill is hot so I can cook to individual preferences if I am serving in steak form.

    I use a meat slicer for huge afternoon parties, have a bunch of bread,cheese, mustards, and some fried onions/peppers. Make your own damn sammie folks.
