Re: OOT Cooking thread 2011

A 32 bottle Craigslist wine fridge with all the shelves except the top one removed. It runs about 51 to 55 degrees. I try to keep the relative humidity above 70% using wet clean kitchen towels but it's tough in Colorado. This here is the first batch from it.

Re: OOT Cooking thread 2011

I like to cook but have never got into grilling due to lack of an outdoor space. This summer I have a porch, and am thinking about getting this:

Suggestions for beginner grill recipes? I prefer chicken / fish over beef

Reading ur post took me back to the days of the seafood counter at whole foods. I definitely don't miss the smell

Re: OOT Cooking thread 2011

Hi, I need help. I have been cooking a lot lately, but I am naturally a bad cook. It's hard for me to get better cause I don't understand the simplest of cooking terms like steaming, sauteing, and so on. I don't understand when to use what sauces. So all my dishes are basically the same thing, beef or chicken with a random vegetable and a random chinese sauce, fried with a random oil, or with water. I can cook chili, chicken soup, steak and pepper stir fried, and I have even roasted a chicken, but that is it. I want to move beyond this and need a little guidance.

Right now I have some lamb in the fridge, can someone tell me what to try here with this? If I were to do it alone I'd probably put it on a pan (my pan is super ****ty, not sure if that matters), put some soy sauce, garlic and pepper on it, and put some green pepper in the pan, and make white rice... Eatable, but bland and novice

Re: OOT Cooking thread 2011

could you be more vague about the lamb? if it's the head I'd boil it and make lambs head cheese

I don't usually take pics of my food but these just looked so good I had to find my camera.

Baked potato dominos topped with scallion oil

Re: OOT Cooking thread 2011

My Canon digicam is defective so I haven't been able to contribute for a while. Luckily, this past weekend a few of us went up to a cottage and one of the girls was fairly trigger happy with her SLR.

I'm usually the one cooking for the whole group, so despite the fact most people whip out the grill at the cottage, I find it easier to use an oven and braise/stew in big batches. This time I brought along 4 racks of side ribs in a couple cryovacs, gave them a dry rub, braised them for a couple hours in cider vinegar and mustard, then blasted them under the broiler after a bbq/mustard saucing.

I overcooked the meat a fair bit but, as usual, that's exactly how most "normal" people like it. I guess people will take tender meat over a little pull every time. *Shrug*. Still the tastiest ribs I've ever made.

Re: OOT Cooking thread 2011

Cooks,

Some great stuff here. Those potato dominoes look especially awesome.

I had some chicken and spinach I wanted to use up, so decided to try something new. I guess it's sort of a spin on Indian Saag Murgh.

I chopped up a bunch of onion, sauteed in butter til starting to brown.
Tossed in some cubes of chicken and browned.
Added a bunch of spices - paprika, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, pepper
Poured some yogurt in and mixed it all up, let it cook for a bit.
Then chopped up a bunch of spinach and mixed it in and cooked for a bit.

Turned out like this, delicious and super easy:

Re: OOT Cooking thread 2011

FC,

That seems to be consensus so far among others who have seen picture, haha. It was delicious, though!

I actually debated whether to post it or not because I thought it might look sorta gross, but it was so delicious and easy I decided to post it as a public service to OOT.
