    Dinner prep started with some annoying but necessary grill maintenance . . .

    Image
    Fender Washers
    Owing largely to regular use and increasingly cheaper construction, my kettle is continuing to burn-in in spots. I could see daylight poking through in yet another spot, so I had to plug it up today. That's now 4 fender washers in use. Soon, I'll have to replace the bowl, which I've done 2 other times in the 25+ years I've owned it.

    The goal today was to really get RID of some stuff that was occupying prime real estate in the back of the fridge. That's how we ended up having sausage at breakfast and at dinner. Apparently, sometime early during the lockdown, I panic stockpiled. After I discovered several packs of cryovacked sausage in the fridge this morning, I decided that today was the day to unwind. But before that, came side dish prep. . . .

    Image
    Stir-Fry Mise En Place & Sakoda AS Gyuto, 210mm
    Sakoda-shortened long beans, lobster stock (gifted to me by Jazzfood), extra firm tofu, oyster sauce, soy sauce, minced garlic, veg oil and maitake mushrooms.

    It was great to have the rich lobster stock, which really elevated this dish. Jazzfood dropped off 3 pints, so, I have a couple left in reserve. Also, had to get rid of one small slab of tofu that was leftover from Friday night's curry. Mission accomplished! :lol:

    Image
    Stir-Fried Maitakes & Long Beans
    Because of Alan's rich lobster stock, the leftovers will make for some nice lunches on their own this week.

    In addition to the cache of sausages I found, there were also a few boneless skinless chicken thighs to use up. Even though I generally try to avoid grilling them, this time around I figured why not toss them on the grill and get them cooked . . .

    Quick Monday night, after-work/before more work dinner prep . . .

    Image
    Cabbage Mise En Place & Kohetsu Blue #2 Addict, 240mm
    Apple cider vinegar, rendered bacon fat (reclaimed after Sunday BLTs), caraway seeds, finely minced garlic, red onion and shredded napa and arrowhead cabbages.

    It felt very good to just go at the cabbages with The Addict. Knife therapy!

    Image
    Tomato Salad
    Approaching the end of our homegrowns. These are Rally, Green Zebra and maybe a Better Boy. Dressed with evoo, balsamic, chives, basil leaves, salt and black pepper.

    Image
    Charcoal-Grilled Pork Tenderloin
    All three were trimmed, trussed, oiled and dry-rubbed. While they were grilling, I decided to baste one with some leftover Korean-style glaze from some eggplant I made last week.

    Not the greatest but decent prime NY strips from Costco . . .

    Image
    Grilling
    Because they tend to be not overly flavorful or well marbled, I usually go a bit heavier on the seasoning when I cook steaks from Costco. These were lightly oiled and generously dusted with salt, black pepper and some homemade rub.

    Image
    Plated Up
    With steamed broccoli (garlic butter, red chile flakes) and some of the weekly (okay, occasional) beans, which are Domingo Rojos from Rancho Gordo. They're distinctive because they're fairly dense, with very creamy interiors and firm skins. They produced a light pot liquor. And even after cooking, they maintained a very deep, red color. Perhaps that's how they got their name. :wink:

    Monday night stir fry helped us get RID of a couple of decent NY strips from Costco that were running out of time. It ended up being a very nice save . . .

    Image
    Mise En Place & Tanaka Blue #2 Nashiji Gyuto, 210mm
    Yellow & red onions, grated ginger, minced garlic, corn starch (for slurry), marinated beef (salt, baking soda, corn starch, Shaoxing cooking wine, soy sauce, dark soy sauce and veg oil), sauce (soy sauce, oyster sauce, black pepper sauce (Lee Kum Kee), corn starch, 4x gelatinous pork stock + water), green>orange & yellow bell peppers and veg oil.

    Decided to go bigger on the veg pieces than I normally do so that I could cook them to the desired softness and still maintain some piece identity. That worked really out well. Swapped out black bean and garlic sauce for the black pepper sauce and I liked it more that way. Less sweet.

    Best intentions and all that jazz.

    Wanted to make a relatively health conscious dinner, cauliflower, pounded chicken cutlets with mushroom pan sauce and rice. Not sure what the hell happened but we ended up with cheese sauce laden cauliflower and a thick cream sauce mushroom gravy for the pounded lightly dredged chicken thigh cutlets.

    It was delicious, if I do say so myself, but about 4400 calories per bite.

    New day, new beginnings, new resolutions. Maybe I'll make a light tofu stir fry and end up with gooey sweet and sour pork.

    Followed up a lunchtime bowl of ramen at Santouka with some more soup . . .

    Image
    Mise En Place & Konosuke Togatta GS+ Gyuto 240mm
    Onions, minced garlic, celery ribs & leaves, parsley leaves (from our garden), carrot, black pepper, salt, 4x gelatinous pork stock, hot Italian sausage, evoo and kale.

    Inspiration for this was some absolutely beautiful redbore curly kale we got from Three Sisters Garden. From there, just figured a sausage and kale soup was a sound move. Started by searing the sausage pieces in a splash of evoo, then removing them. Next, sweated the mirepoix in the renderings until they started to soften. Next, I added some of the garlic, all the kale, a couple big blobs of the stock and some water (and some bay leaves not pictured above). Simmered/reduced it all for about hour, after which I added the remainder of the garlic, some of the parsley leaves and the par-cooked sausage. After that, I let it simmer for another 10 minutes and ladled it out.

    SueF was out (retired) but they pulled her back in tonight... so it's Bachelor Chow.
    From the freezer: some homemade stock ice cubes, and a fish filet that's been there probably longer than my granddaughter has been alive.
    From the garden: a couple jalapenos, a small bell, and some brussels sprout leaves (they're somewhere between cabbage and collards).
    From the fridge and counter: ginger, garlic and scallions.
    From the pantry, facing heaven chiles, green Sichuan peppercorns, fermented black beans, black vinegar, rice wine, sugar, sesame oil, cornstarch, Momofuku tamari, rice stick noodles.
    Image
    Marinated the fish in tamari and rice wine - after thawing, there wasn't much fish, but I'm committed.
    Separate piles for oil-flavoring, aromatics, veg, garnish (the scallions).
    Sauce of stock, tamari, sugar, vinegar, cornstarch, water to make a cup.
    Image
    Boil water for noodles, drain.
    Heat oil, scorch the chiles and peppercorns, scoop into bowl where fish is marinating.
    Add the aromatics, stir fry a bit, add the veg, stir fry until the leaves look cooked, add the fish, noodles and sauce, simmer, stirring a couple times. Serve, garnished with scallion.

    Couple of cooking projects while working from home today. First up, made a "lunch" out of the trimmings from Sunday's ribs . . .

    Image
    Mise En Place & Makoto AS Ryusei Gyuto, 210mm
    Minced garlic & bay leaf, slitted cherry bomb peppers, quartered tomatillos, seared rib scraps (veg oil, then seasoned in salt, pepper, granulated garlic & onion, fresh ground cumin, ancho chile powder and Mexican oregano), salt and black pepper.

    After the sear, tossed the veg into the pan to release the fond, added a touch of water and braised it covered for a couple of hours until the pork was tender, then reduced the liquid. The tomatillos contain a lot of pectin, which helped make the sauce nice and thick.

    Image
    Braised Rib Scraps
    Had to get a shot, even though this ended up not actually being lunch because it took too long to finish. I had a yogurt instead. Unfortunately, the scraps weren't quite enough food for dinner but at least they're cooked, not wasted, and ready to be reheated for another meal, maybe even a lunch! :P

    Next up, dinner, YASF (yet another stir-fry) . . .

    Image
    Mise En Place & Makoto AS Ryusei Gyuto, 210mm
    Okay, deep breath . . . green beans, king oyster mushrooms, shallots, fermented black beans, grated ginger, minced garlic, purple cauliflower, reconstituted black fungus, salt, black pepper, u-26 shrimp, white pepper, oyster sauce, veg oil, chile black bean sauce, soy sauce, toasted sesame oil and Shoaxing wine. Got RID of a lot of stuff here and ended up with a nice combination.

    Super simple dinner that punched way above its weight class, relative to the small number of ingredients and ease of preparation.

    Image
    Mise En Place & Matsubara Blue #2 KS Nashiji Gyuto, 240mm
    Shiro miso, minced garlic, unsalted butter and broccoli. Setting up for a side dish of steamed broccoli with miso garlic butter. After the broccoli was steamed, I melted the butter until just before it browned, killed the heat, then whisked in the miso and the minced garlic.

    Main course was one of our new favorites and a tried and true stand-by . . .

    Image
    Grilling
    Hatcho miso and sake-marinated short ribs. To achieve maximum char, I can only grill four or five at a time. This prolongs the grill time, so makes sense to build a slightly bigger than normal fire. Even though it took a while, I managed to just beat the rain. :)

    Image
    On The Platter
    I love the simplicity and complex flavor of this prep. Before grilling, I marinated them for about 24 hours. First time purchasing the short ribs at Fresh Farms and while they were relatively inexpensive ($8.99/#), even after a lengthy cleaning, they were more bone-chippy than any others I've ever purchased elsewhere. :(

    Toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar, gochujang, red pepper sauce, evoo, minced garlic, Tupelo honey and sliced eggplant.

    Par-baked the eggplant until it was soft. While that was happening, I made a glaze with everything else. Once the eggplant was soft, I glazed it and broiled it for about 10 minutes (with a touch of water drizzled on the sheet pan to prevent any burning).

    As usual, the mortar & pestle did a fine job turning the shallots, garlic and chiles into a pulpy mash.

Once browned, I added some minced garlic and as soon as that got fragrant, I added some warm water and covered them for about 10 minutes. Once they'd steamed to the desired softness, I drizzled in some balsamic and cranked up the heat until all the water had evaporated and the balsamic had thickened.

    Thanks. It was good but as many times as I've made this, it's never come out the same twice. There are only a few variables but I've yet to really nail them all down batch to batch. So, the end product has a range. Not sure I'll ever really get it completely tightened up. Maybe that doesn't matter, since I'm not cooking for paying customers. I put it on the table and it disappears every time. There are no complaints but the tips are garbage. :wink:

    Charcoal-grilled sausages on a bed of sauteed/stewed onions and peppers. Is that dinner or are you just happy to see me? :lol:

    Needed freezer space so made lobster stock w/the 2 shelves worth of crustacean shells I managed to accumulate (yielded about 4 gallons). Many applications but my favorite is this pasta I've been cooking since it was on the menu @ East Bank Club in the middle 80's where I cooked it 1,000+ times. Based on a new cookbook by Paul Prudhomme (his 1st I believe) it was known as Cajun Shrimp and Oysters over Linguine.

    We made a compound butter w/his then new blackening spice recipe, some shallots and sherry. The darker the spicer (mine is just short of cocoa brown but do it to your taste). My father-in-law lives in New Mexico and sends us Hatch peppers so I add some as well and increases the heat significantly which Missus Jazzfood and I prefer. Saute U 15's until rare, toss in shucked oysters just to warm thru not cook. Reserve. Deglaze w/lobster stock and chives, reduce by 1/2 w/reserved liquids. Add shrimp and oysters, al dente seasoned linguine and toss w/asiago (I know). Adjust seasonings.

    Scratches the itch and a go-to meal during the plague.

    Nice. And if Prudhomme says it's okay to mix cheese and seafood, well, then it's okay and don't even question it! :)

    Based on what we're getting in our CSA box lately, brussels sprouts, cabbage, bell peppers, kale, leeks, regular and sweet potatoes, carrots and hard squash are all going strong right now. Do you prefer to grill the accompaniments, too or is cooking them inside a viable option?
