Gorgeous pan seared Snake River Farms Kurobuta pork chops with shallot, sage butter sauces. Pork really can have flavor. Great with 2001 Osvaldo Viberti Barolo Serra dei Turchi.

The house we are staying in has a convection oven and I’m in love! Roasted Flannery Pork Chops cut 2 bone thick. Dry rubbed with S&P, Cumin and Chili Powder. Pan finished and glazed with Bul Go Ki sauce and served over a bed of Whole Grain Brown Rice/Oats/Red Jasmine/Wild Rice w/Asparagus and a side of Applesauce. #evacuationlife

...and pan-seared foie gras.

The accompanying sauce I made from the duck fond/drippings, a bit of foie gras fat, Graham’s 10-Years Tawny Port, balsamic vinegar, a little honey, cranberries, and some butter just to finish it.

Mini pork meatballs, imbued with ricotta, parmreg, breadcrumbs, and all the general goodness, on multi-gran hero bread, cheesy marinara, with some slices of Mozz for a hero that tried to touch the heavens.

The twist I threw in today that also made me pause, one small diced habanero. The weight on the Italian element plus the dairy with ricotta/parmreg and an egg made the thing gel, married the spice to just work.

Wish I took pics, I just acted on instinct and my daughter thinks its among my best work.

Thanks, Mark. It was pretty good. I’ve made this dish several times the past months (been cooking more as there isn’t much else to do at night in locked down Metro Manila) - thing is, what’s bothered me is that the 5-Spice in the rub, by its nature, turns very dark such that the crust can look burnt though it isn’t at all. That bugs me a bit; so I’ve tried switching pans (from cast iron to non-stick, etc.) and playing with the heat. Visual improvement of the crust has been minimal so far, unfortunately.

Laughed audibly at “turns very dark such that the crust can look burnt.”

Got some swordfish from a fisherman and made some nice tacos. Cubed the fish, tossed in s&p and microplaned some lemon zest over it. Let it sit while preparing thinly sliced green cabbage, diced heirloom tomatoes and made a tomatillo salsa verde (tomatillos, serranos, garlic, onion, cilantro, roasted and blended). Also used a mayo like you find in most baja fish taco stands, but added some serrano chilis from the garden and mixed in some homemade Cholula style sauce. Sauteed the fish and heated the tortillas on the cast iron. Bottom to top:
Tortilla
mayo mix
cabbage
fish
tomato
salsa verde
Didn't want to cook rice so I picked some up at the local mexican joint. All done it was about 15min from the fridge to the plate.

While not "last night" per se, but I spent most of the day yesterday canning. It's so smoky out that being outside really wasn't a great idea, so I decided to make a mess in the kitchen.

Canned a bunch of tomatoes, too. These are San Marzano variety I grew, but I had to buy a couple of boxes of Romas too.

Help us out with the "faux-smoked" line. Using a smoke gun under wrap?

I have a smoke gun (but no smoker), but no, this was using Wright's Liquid Smoke in the glaze. Recipe:

I generally followed this recipe, either a whole head in the regular oven, or just florets in a carbon steel pan in my high-temp pizza oven:

By far the best brisket I've cooked this year (well, only the second. The first was on the BGE and tasted good but was dry). Brisket, onions, carrots, garlic, tomato paste, wine, water, a bit of better than bullion, dijon, soy, cider vinegar. Cooked tightly covered and very low (265) for 5 hours. One advantage of cooking while WFH is that I end up leaving the brisket browning and the onions caremelizing longer than I would have normally.

Marinaded Flannery Hangers pan seared, cut into chunks and mixed into a stir fry of carrots, bush beans, mushrooms and basil. Finished with some of the marinade and served over ancient grains.

Someone recently gifted us a 6-pack of the Spiceology brand "Beer Can Rub" sampler. I'm a big fan of the Spiceology mixes (their Greek-Freak is the bomb!), so was excited to start sampling them (gratuitous disclaimer time; I have no affiliation with Spiceology other than being a happy customer). Yesterday seemed like a good day to crack open the Honey Mustard IPA rub mix and dust it all over a nice bone in pork chop for a few hours in the fridge.

After pulling the porkchop out of the fridge and letting it come up in temp a little bit, I roasted it over lump charcoal on the BGE at ~400*-450* for about 4 minutes per side. I also cut a peach in half, rubbed a little oil on it and similarly dusted it with the same rub and cooked it next to the porkchop. To go with the chop, I made a salad of green leaf lettuce, toasted pumpkin seeds, the other half of the peach (fresh) cut into bite-sized pieces, some goat cheese and homemade dressing of honey, lemon juice a little Sierra Nevada Pale Ale mustard and good olive oil.

Obviously I needed to pair it all with an IPA, so what could be better than a Pliny to go with it? It all came together quite nicely....definitely plan to repeat it sometime soon.

While not "last night" per se, but I spent most of the day yesterday canning. It's so smoky out that being outside really wasn't a great idea, so I decided to make a mess in the kitchen.

Elberta peach jam:



Canned a bunch of tomatoes, too. These are San Marzano variety I grew, but I had to buy a couple of boxes of Romas too.

Well done!
