Food Chat - Dinner conversation anyone?

For all your pre- and post-PAW food and beverage recipes. Just because it keeps you alive doesn't mean it shouldn't be tasty.

Food Chat - Dinner conversation anyone?

We have a Firearms Chat, why not a food chat?

Found this in my YouTube feed today:

All I needed to see was the word "food" to justify clicking. :lol:

I just finished breakfast - two mugs of half-caff coffee and one of the amazing cream cheese filled coffee cake muffins my wife brought home from the store yesterday. :awesome:

Don't buy Old Folks "smokehouse breakfast sausage". I like their regular breakfast sausage, but the "smokehouse" type taste like you rubbed the sausage on the inside of a well-seasoned bbq pit.

Well, there's a mental taste sensation... I'm going to imagine a few shots of a good bourbon now to kill it.

My girlfriend and I made jam - orange marmalade for the first time recently. We also made picallili.

I made a good batch of Kimchi and now am trying to do fermented pickles.

Been fun!

Were you able to get a hold of real seville oranges for that marmalade?

No unfortunately not, my family advised me to just use a bit less sugar.

We made Dundee style which includes the skin.

That sounds killer either way. And I'm a huge fan of the peel being included.

So is marmalade just like fruit preserves or is it the same thing, but with a different name ?

I've always thought of it as orange preserves, but then again, I've never actually tried it. My wife enjoys it though.

I've tried fruit preserves a couple times in my life, but I wasn't a fan.

In other food related news, I came up with a recipe I call "Lazy Bastard Hamburger Steak". :lol:

Basically, you take frozen hamburger patties, heat them up on a George Foreman grill, and then put some brown gravy (either from a can or powdered sauce mix) on them once they're done.

It's not fancy by any means, but it is quick and filling.

I haven't seen them in awhile, but Spam used to have these little bite sized bits that were kind of like beef jerky and they were pretty good.

I always grabbed the teriyaki flavored ones, but they had regular Spam flavored ones and I think jalapeno flavored ones as well.

I like to vac-seal and freeze taco meat, and one of my go-to recipes is to mix about a half-cup of beans, cup of rice, and taco meat. Good and filling.

Here a while back I was going to make chicken fried rice, but the chicken I got from the store had kind of a pong to it. So I threw some of the taco meat and some frozen beans into it, and had tex-mex-chinese taco fried rice. :lol:

Currently defrosting my deep freezer. Apparently I bought 5 pork butt roasts and forgot about them. Defrosting, slow cooking and throwing them in jars w/bbq sauce to keep them b/c at 9 months they're about at the end of their rope.

Also, my hands are frozen. :shock:

Finally got my huge propane powered smoker working. Smoked 1 Atlantic salmon fillet, 2 racks of spareribs with brisket attached, 1/3 of pork loin for pulled pork, and 2 whole chickens. Ran smoker for 5 hrs. Then put loin and ribs in overnight at 250deg F. Had some of the salmon for dinner, yum. Tasted the chicken as it was falling apart. Tasty. My wife separated the ribs this am while I was decompressing my lower back,(have a pinched nerve on the left), so I dont know how tender they turned out. Now to pull the loin apart and mix in some Stubbs spicey.

That sounds like hubby's description of Salisbury steak.

Is there a difference between Salisbury steak and hamburger steak or is it the same thing ?

A Salisbury steak is kind of a subset of a hamburger steak.

The USDA requires that anything with "hamburger" on it, unqualified, must be only beef and essentially insignificant amounts of spice (e.g. you can't say "it's spiced with 10% wheat" or whatever, but throwing in bit of spice doesn't disqualify it). A salisbury steak I think is traditionally like 1/4 pork or veal. Salisbury steak labelling allows some other stuff like pork meat, egg, bread crumbs.

I think the traditional recipe requires the ground meat be mixed with breadcrums, parsley, garlic diced or powder, egg with the concoction cooked in brown gravy (I think technically sauce espagnole), then served under the gravy with carmelized onions. I dunno that it has any legal value, but that'd be "the" Salisbury steak.
