Goner Message Board / Food & Drink / Last great meal you cooked?
Posted: Jan 13, 2006 2:25 pm
 
My roommate and I went to town and did some stuff from our Everyday Italian cookbook.

Menu:
Rolled flank steak stuffed with parmesan, basil, parsley, topped with a spicy carrot and celery marinara (this marinara was surprisingly great, but I think it's because my sister got me this really cool vegetable chopper for Christmas that can mince very well)

Stuffed mushrooms (stuffed with Italian bread crumbs, parmesan, and diced garlic)

Fettucine (for the leftover marinara)

Garlic breadsticks

If we would have had some mozzarella (the store closed before we finished cooking) this would have been NEXT LEVEL. But it was great! Yes ladies, I am single.

Standing rib roast (ryan did that part), Yorkshire pudding (me)

I can't remember if we had mashed potatoes too--I am sure we did with all that beef.

Isn't the most fab? I resisted it every Xmas as a kid because it didn't look like Jello Chocolate Pudding. What an idiot.

Yorkshire pudding (me)

I've never had that and I've always wondered what it is. Please explain.

Well, when you cook a roast of some kind (veal/beef) and all that juice drips out, you save some of that and pour it into the bottom of the roasting pan (sans rack) and add this mixture of eggs, flour and something else to it. Bake in the oven for a bit...and WHAM! It rises up and you have this rich, beef-infused bread like goodness. It is hard to explain. Google it.

A lot of recipes try to fancy it up by making little individual ones in cupcake tins, but this is unnecessary. I'll post a recipe if you'd like.

That sounds totally delicious, but I think it would be even more appetizing if they didn't insist on calling it "pudding." I suggest that they call it Patriot Bread.

So's, it's like a gravy you can eat with a fork...with the more flour and some egg thrown in?

No, it's like bread. Kinda like a muffin, if you make it in the muffin pan. I can't imagine anybody not liking this, cept for vegetarians.

Patriot Bread!!!!

If that didn't smack of Desert Stormism, I'd agree. I tend to think of it more Fancy Foppy England...when I was googling different recipes over Xmas, I found a page that was "Basil Rathbone's Yorkshire Pudding Recipe".

Check it:

My English grandma used to make yorkshire pudding... it was simply a vehicle for slopping up the little bits left on yr supper plate and super-yummy. almost as good as a slice of soft wheat bread that's grazed the bottom of the pan you cook the roast in.mmmm...bread-n-grizzle....

The last great meal I cooked... hmmmm. I made a bad ass spread for new year's day- gotta start the year off right! I made pan fried pork chops- breaded in an herb crust & fried in bacon fat, of course!- some real-deal southern collard greens (chock full of bacon), mashed taters & some chicken gravy. It's simple stuff really but can't be beat when you're hungover as hell on new year's day.
I also rocked up an excellent batch of my famous guinness beef stew last week. All this rain & gloom out here in the NW has got me on a soup & stew kick these days...

Halibut was on sale, down from $12 a lb to $7 so I got a pound of filet and used a nice beer batter with bay spice in the dry part and deep fried those fishies and did some taters after that and dipped it all in a nice gourmet tartar sauce, had a couple of Rainers and watched the Seahawks beat the Redskins. last Saturday..

Thai green curry with tofu, red peppers, onions, jasmine rice, etc ... Even found a Thai supermarket which sells sweet basil and lime leaves, which really gives it the flavour (note proper spelling!) to savour (ditto!) ...

Mmmm, and I also had a chopped birds-eye chilli/nam pla/soy/spring onion/coriander (cilantro) topping/garnish, which gave me serious heat rushes up the back of my neck!!! Excellent!

Getting coconut milk that's thick enuff to do a really good Thai is difficult, tho', and requires some brand testing ...

whats the best brand...
Posted: Jan 19, 2006 5:10 pm
 
Sorry, I was cooking while drunk'n'stoned! Erm, well, ther BETTER brands seem to be the ones that you can buy in 'ethnic' markets (i.e. Thai, Caribbean, Chinese, etc), rather than from the 'world foods' section of yer average hypermarket - basically, the more unintelligable the can, the better class o'gunk ... However, I've heard that those blocks of coconut that you can buy, then dissolve in water, are also v.v. good, cos you can control the consistency ...
