Ya Know....We Need Another Cooking Topic!
« on: Sep 23, 2019, 06:05 PM »
I know...this is a fishing site.
But...most avid fishers love to cook. I thought it might be cool to share some cherished family recipes with our fellow fishers.

This should be about whatever you cook for your family or yourself that is one of your favorites. I know I have a bunch of good home cooked meals that my BRide and I enjoy.

Whatcha all think?

Fried cabbage, bacon, and noodles is a favorite in our home.  Just had it this weekend.  Left to my own devices, I'd substitute bacon grease for butter every chance I get.  Particularly on sweet corn and potatoes.
Bigger isn't always better but Size definitely Matters!

Everything is better with bacon! I make some double dark chocolate brownies with crumbled bacon on top. 👌

Last night we had one of our favorites. We call it "the egg thing". It's sort of a stove top frittata. One of those refrigerator meals that you can make using whatever you have  at hand.

Ours was pork sausage, broccoli, sweet bell pepper, onion and fresh wax beans topped with Munster cheese.

Spray a non stick skillet with cooking spray and brown the meat.
Add the vegetables with a bit of water ( 1/4 cup or so) to deglaze the pan. Cover and steam sauté the veggies with the meat.
Whisk 5 whole eggs with about 1/2 cup of milk adding salt, pepper and fresh parsley (if you have it)

When the veggies are tender, deglaze the pan again if necessary, give them another spritz of cooking spray and toss.

Pour the egg mixture over the veggies and meat, top with your favorite shredded cheese, cover and reduce the heat to low.
Rotate the pan every few minutes to cook evenly until the eggs have set.

A quick yummy meal.

   I couldn't agree more!

Cajun Walleye with chambord buerre blanc;
Pat dry the fillets, let them rest an hour at room temp
In a small sauce pan on medium heat melt a tbsp of butter and a tbsp of xvoo
add 3 finely diced garlic cloves, just browning them
add a sprig of tyme lightly crushed
add 2 cups white wine, I use Chardonnay
add 1/2 cup chambord
add 1/4 of a fresh lemon lightly squeezed
bring to a boil then slow to a low simmer
1 stick salted butter sliced into 1/4"
simmer the reduction down till it begins to get small bubbles, ie the sugars are out.
strain
add back to pan on low heat and SLOWLY fold in the butter stirring constantly to avoid breaking
 
The eyes I give a liberal dusting of Cajun while heating a cast iron pan or skillet, seasoned with bacon grease of course
give the fillets 3-4 mins per side

Once the sauce is done remove from heat immediately
pick your favorite veggie
steam some rice
pour that raspberry lemonade buttery goodness all over everything and enjoy!

Yikes....chef Eddy strikes again! Sounds wonderful and I love making sauce reductions.

In the fridge I have a jar of port wine reduction. It was a reward for turning a mortar and pestle for a good friend. He was a chef for many years. I've used it on beef, pork and chicken with delightful results.

Ever had a Chambord Royal?

For me, slow cooker season is upon us. Allows my family to eat right after work and before dance, gymnastics and other after school activities.

Today's meal is Mexican Pot Roast:

2.5 - 3.5lb boneless chuck roast
1 onion sliced
baby red potatoes
package of taco seasoning
2 TSP cumin
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 14.5oz can roasted diced tomatoes, drained

Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Arrange onion and potatoes in slow cooker. Place beef over vegetables. Sprinkle seasonings.  Pour tomatoes over beef and vegetables.

Cook on Low heat 8 to 9 hours or until beef is tender.

Gotta make yourself one Ed. My son and I go to cocktail and Bourbon tastings a few times a year. It's a great night out. Get an "Uber" and have fun.
 Had a Chamborg Royal last year at one. Really tasty. Also the best Bourbon old fashioned I've ever tasted..
