Labor Day Weekend Tasty Treats

52 posts in this topic

Wife picked up some BB ribs and they will go on the Weber tomorrow. Tonight will either be deep fry night or ribeye night. Deep fry will be shrimp, Chicken fritters, tater tots and breaded mushrooms and maybe even a few motzzie sticks but for us lactose intolerant who cares.

 

Anybody else cooking up anything fun ?

I thought Mozzarella was reasonably low in Lactose.  Mozzie sticks with a lactaid chaser?

I always thought it was somewhat strange or maybe even ironic that the bones off the pork loin sell for more per pound than the boneless meat does.....

Aren't baby backs just the bones that get removed to make boneless pork loin?  The boneless loin is like 1.89 and the bones are 2.99+, so the more meat left on the bone the more profit, if I have it figured right...

Maybe I should get some meat glue and layer more meat on the ribs...

Real name is Transglutaminase

As far as pork and chicken goes, it has to be bone in for me , just turns out juicier. Marbled beef it doesn't matter.

Rather not take a chance this time. For the most part I can have a few poppers and a few motzzie sticks as long as I have other things right along with them. Every now and then I will do a pizza just because I love it but do I pay for it. I can take 4 Lactaid fast acting tablets and still feel the effects the next day. It is worth it :lol:

Had some chunks of steak mapped in bacon from HiVee (neener neener reb ). Salted, sous vide, sear.  Serve with mashed potatoes.

Ya Del, so you just get them to 135 or so?  And then hit them on the grill for a little sear?

It is reading in farenheit.  I started out at 135 for wife's steak.  She likes hers a little more done.  Make that a lot more done...

Yes, you put the meat in the water bath, sealed in plastic, set at the temperature for the doneness you want.  It can stay there for a considerable time.   Like medium is 130 to 135.    Leave it in at least an hour, up to several hours.  

Then when you want to eat, you take it out, pat it dry and either throw it on a screaming hot grill or in a screaming hot pan to get a sear on it without cooking it more.   Makes it easy to get the meat cooked exactly right.  What I do, since we like ours different, is put hers in at 135 or 140 and then after a time lower the temp to 125 or 130 and put mine in.  

I also did a cooks illustrated trick they used for roast beef that the meat is supposed to get tenderer if you hold it at like 115 for a while.  Something about enzymes... So I did 115 for an hour, then went ahead.  It seems to have helped because that sirloin can be a little tough and this was better.

That's pretty slick del. You ever try doing a small ham or pork loins that way? I wonder how Cornish game hens or even packaged whole chickens would turn out, if the skin would crispen up like cooking in a bag in the oven..hmmm.

Since they are totally sealed in and cooking at low temperature, skin or anything else doesn't get crisp.  Ham is said to work great and doesn't dry out like it can if overcooked in oven.  Pork loin would also be excellent.  It is great on stuff that you need to be careful about overcooking like white meat chicken, ham, pork loin etc. 

Typically either you have to glaze or sear at the end, or serve with a sauce or something due the fact there is no browning going on.  

There is a pot roast type recipe that involves cooking for like 24 hours at a low temp to achieve the tenderness associated with the conventional braising.   Sort of like crock pot only more precise in this case.   I think I will give that a try once it cools off and I have time.

Nah, green beans. 

I have the costco stir fry stuff.  That will have to do. 

And some pickles... And some artisan romaine.

    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
