Intrigued. Pork Caramel?


#42

Soumds like baked beans, some American states just go for that.

Sort of like how a fine diner doesn’t want to admit they’re really serving baked beans, so they call uit “pork caramel.”


#43

Burnt ends, by any other name, would taste just as good.


#44

Raw cow


#45

If minced finely, yes. Or maybe done ‘Pittsburgh-style’!


#46

Preferably from the tenderloin and mixed with diced gherkins, capers and shallots and seasoned with mustard, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt and freshly ground black pepper.


#47

With an egg on top


#48

Also raw, but the yolk only.

Today, I splurged and ate at a nice little Chinese buffet for about $8 (when you’re poor that counts as splurging because I could have gotten ramen for a quarter) and got my all-time favorite dish!


Some beef and broccoli served over a bed of rice! A little sweet and sour chicken on the side–simple, fairly cheap to most people, but tastes great.


Also helped myself to some of these little sweets at the buffet–and I have no idea what they are called but they are quite tasty.

When I’m at home cooking, I like to make beef stew and homemade chicken pot pies in a cupcake pan and lots of kinds of cookies. I’m a walking budget recipe book.

Writer’s Tears whiskey is a good drop. I’ve tasted only the standard variety, not the limited ($$$) bottlings. I think it comes from the same distillery as “The Irishman” brand.


#51

I grew some Japanese Hakurei turnips and did some slicing (on a mandoline) and pickling.

Found dried kombu (kelp) at the local co-op and did one batch with that, fresh ginger, and red chile in rice vinegar, aji-mirin (sweet rice wine), sugar, and water. Also pickled the rest of the ginger. I love wee spicy bits of things!


#52

Didn’t know they had burnt ends in England. I associate that with US smoked and pit roasted barbecue. They used to be cheap, but have become a delicacy.


#53

It does indeed. But I’ve only come across it recently.


#54

When we go to a carvery, I always ask for the bits at he end of the roast. And when I do a roast myself, there are fights in the house over who gets what.


#55

At a wedding in Kansas City, a bunch of old, drunk guys got into a fight about which BBQ place had the best burnt ends. Felt like a really weird movie.


#56

Now that brings back memories of when aunt in law would bring that to xmas dinner


#57

Food: Any kind of pasta as long as there’s shrimp in it and preferably Cajun seasoning.
Cheesecake (NY Style, Oreo, Chocolate Chip, Salted Caramel.) I would eat cheesecake all the time if my body could combat it forever.

Drinks: Angry Fireball (angry orchard and cinnamon whiskey)
Anything with vodka.
Pina Coladas and Mimosas are pretty nice, too.
And Modelo when I want to go the malt route.
Blueberry/Strawberry Lemonade for non-alcohol.


#58

Oh, I forgot to mention Chinese. It’s definitely up there, at least the American version of Chinese food.


#59

Lamb roasts are where it’s at. With mint sauce as well as all the rest

And for drinks, it will always be tomato juice

I am sad that I can’t get either in my current location I:

I will send virtual lamb roasts your way! :sheep: :meat_on_bone:
