Food, my favorite passtime

Post by Krumm on Mon 23 Jul 2007, 9:56 am

All of a sudden, I'm thinking a lot about food (could have something to do with the fact that I'm currently eating), and I thought I'd ask what peoples favorite recipes are.

I found a good recipe for Mexican rice on the net a while ago, which turns out delicious, and a welcome change to the packet side-dish rice that I usually have.

I also got a Chilli beans recipe off the net, which I tried tonight (with the mex rice along side). It was tasty, and I look forward to cooking it correctly in the future.

One recipe which I kind of made up on my own is a whiskey pepper steak sauce. I use Jack Daniels, and it's really good if you down a shot for each shot you put in the sauce (three shot sauce, you don't really care if you mess it up)




Please note that "2 minute noodles" does not count as a recipe, unless you add sliced ham, cheese and sour cream (or something similar)

Dice up some onion and mushroom (maybe some capsicum) and fry it up in a saucepan
Mix cornflour and liquid beef stock, then add it to the saucepan, along with a shot or two of Jack Daniels whiskey, some Masterfoods Pepper Steak Seasoning mix, and ground pepper.
Simmer until it thickens.

I always wing it on the quantities. It's best to cook it once, then adjust amounts according to taste.

You could add the whiskey at the first step, but you might want to add a bit more, as you'd probably loose some in the frying process.

thanks

in return heres a recipe you might like

Yakitori - Skewered grilled chicken

Yakitori is grilled chicken speared on sticks. All different parts of the chicken, thighs, skin, liver, etc. can be used for yakitori. The following recipe shows one of the most popular kind which is prepared with chicken thighs and leek.

Ingredients:

* Chicken thighs: without bone and skin
* Japanese leek (negi*), leek, or green onion
* Soya sauce
* Mirin* or sake*
* Sugar
* Honey or maple syrup
* Small wooden spears

* This ingredient may not be available in Western supermarkets, but you should be able to find it in Japanese grocery stores that exist in most large European and American cities.

Preparation:

1. Mix together 4 tablespoons of soya sauce, 3 tablespoons of sugar, a little bit of honey or maple syrup, a little bit of mirin and water, and heat it up until it's homogenous.

2. Cut the chicken thighs into about 3x2x2cm large pieces.

3. Put the chicken pieces into the already prepared sauce, and let it stand for a while.

4. Cut the leek or green onions in about 3 cm long pieces.

5. Spear three or four pieces of chicken and some leek on each wooden stick.

6. Grill them, or use the oven at 200 degrees celsius. (You may want to wrap the wooden sticks with aluminium foil; otherwise, they may burn off.)

General information:

Yakitori is popular among salarymen when they go out together after work. It is especially delicious with some hot sake.

Yep. In fact, there's a suburb just a few minutes drive from here (just outside the city center), that's full of asian shops and restaurants.

I was just picking holes in your wording.
