  2. the phone on my camera is garbage, but here is a pulled pork recipe i did last week

    4-8lb pork shoulder aka boston butt
    apple juice
    1-2 onions
    cayenne pepper
    paprika
    salt
    pepper

    take pork shoulder and marinade it in apple juice. i also placed the paprika and cayenne all over the entire shoulder like a dry rub and then placed it in a container with the apple juice

    let flip the roast over half way thru the time so the whole thing gets to soak in the apple juice.

    you can let it sit overnight or for a few hours.

    pull it out and reseason it with the dry rub

    I use a crockpot since I don't have a smoker or grill. Cooking in the oven at 275 works as well

    Cut up 1-2 onions into slices. Place a few slices at the bottom of crockpot.

    Put the pork in the pot and pour in some remaining apple juice. Place the rest of sliced onion on top and around the pork.

    Put crockpot on low and let it go for around 10-12 hours

    pull the pork out and let it cool a bit before digging in to separate the fat and shredding the pork.

    pour out most of the remaining juice from the crockpot and put the shredded pork back in.

    serve on hamburger buns with onion and/or pickle

    i like any of the sweet baby rays bbq sauces with this. so damn goot

  3. this isn't much of a 'recipe' but I promise you'll be impressed if you try it out. I'm pretty good at deep frying the shit out of food. not gonna claim it's healthy but this fry batter is ridiculous on just about anything. think long john silvers but better. and there isn't much to it.

    in general:

    1 part all-purpose flour to 1 part water, BUT

    replace a couple tablespoons of the water with vegetable oil and either vinegar or beer (this is important)

    replace a couple tablespoons of the flour with corn starch

    add salt + pepper + garlic powder + dried parsely (etc. etc. but this setup works perfect for chicken or veggies. chili flakes are awesome if you like hot.)

    the batter should be thick enough that it sticks to the food and doesn't drip off if you hold it above the bowl. foods that take longer to cook like proteins need it to be thicker so it can cook in the fryer for a longer time. hard to describe the consistency on here but I don't measure much of this shit when I cook.

    fry whatever your cholesterol-clogged heart desires at 375 (corn or peanut oil) and try not to do this more than once a week. kosher salt on top of the food right after it comes out.

    I fry oreos a lot because they're amazing and everyone devours them. instead of the garlic/parsely I use cinnamon, and then sprinkle more cinnamon on the finished product.

    my favorites to fry are asparagus, carrots, pickles, mushrooms, and chicken strips obv. we did pheasant last weekend and it was really solid, definitely works good with gamey foods if you hunt at all. I've also deep fried bacon and honestly it hurts my feelings I can't eat it more often for fear of death.

    gl.

    edit - some other ideas I've tried are french fries, snickers bars, reeses cups, pizza slices, onion rings, chuck steak, bananas, stuffed jalapenos... etc etc

    ingredients:

    MATERIALS:
    1.) Lighter
    2.) Glass Beaker
    3.) Distilled Water
    4.) Baking Soda
    5.) Rubbing Alcohol

    PREPARATION:
    1.) Mix four-parts of coke to one-part of baking soda
    in glass beaker. (Yes, that IS a 4:1 ratio) I've done it
    by eye & found it's good not to exceed a 3:1 ratio.

    2.) Begin adding a few drops of distilled water to the
    mix, adding only enough to turn the powder into a
    muddy sludge-like consistency. WARNING: Do NOT
    add too much water or your coke will not harden up
    in the cooling process.

    3.) Drench the cotton ball with rubbing alcohol in a
    thick metal or ceramic dish. Add only enough to
    completely saturate the ball.

    THE COOKING PROCESS,
    PART 1:
    1.) Use the lighter to ignite the alcohol in the cotton
    ball.
    2.) While the cotton ball is burning, heat the
    coke-sludge by swirling the beaker above the tip of
    the flame.
    3.) Continue swirling until the substance comes to a
    boil, then remove it from the flame to cool.
    When your substance has cooled it should form a
    clump of solid "rock-bubbles."

    PART 2:
    4.) Add more distilled water to the beaker, enough to
    stand about 1/4 inch above the hardened bubbles.
    5.) Re-heat the substance in the beaker. When
    thoroughly heated you will see a yellow mass
    floating in the center of the water as you continue to
    swirl the beaker.
    You don't need to boil it, just heat it up until the
    hardened bubbles melt into a yellow coke-mass.

    THE COOLING PROCESS:
    1.) Once melted, remove the substance from the
    flame.
    2.) Continue swirling the beaker, (trying to keep the
    yellow coke-blob in the center as you swirl) until the
    water in the beaker has completely cooled.
    3.) You should now have a solid yellow rock tinkling
    around in your glass beaker. Remove the rock and
    cut to desired proportions.

    4.) Enjoy!!!: -)

  20. Oven baked lemon chicken:

    Mix together the following:
    1/4 olive oil
    Juice of 2 lemons
    2 tbsp chopped garlic
    1 tbsp mustard
    1 tsp thyme
    salt and pepper

    Put 4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a pyrex dish just big enough to fit all the chicken (you want them to be snug in the dish). Pour the mixture over top of the chicken, being sure to cover as much of it as you can, but also make sure some gets under the chicken. I recommend marinating the chicken for at least an hour, but if you're pressed for time it's fine to throw in the oven right away. Cover the dish and bake at 400F for 40 minutes.

    When serving, pour some of the juice from the dish over the chicken to add moisture. If you serve with green beans or asparagus, the juice is delish over that as well.

    I'll sometimes make 4-6 chicken breasts on a Sunday night and take them for lunch all week. If you do this, keep the leftover juice in a separate container and pour over the chicken when you reheat.

  22. Bacon Jam

    1 cup bacon, cut into lardons (1/4 in strips width wise)
    1/2 cup yellow onions, small diced or thinly sliced
    3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
    1 tablespoon honey
    3 cups chicken stock
    1 tablespoon butter, unsalted

    Try and not use pre packaged bacon. Deli bacon (by the pound), or homemade bacon (ideal) will make this taste sooo much better.

    Cook bacon until crispy (but not burnt) in a pot.
    Remove bacon, but leave the rendered fat
    Add onions and caramelize until golden, make sure to scrape the bacon bits off bottom
    Add brown sugar and stir well
    Add 1 cup of the stock and reduce the mixture by 1/2
    Add 1 more cup stock, reduce
    Add last cup, reduce till thick (be careful not to burn, as it's easy w/the
    Purée in blender till it's pretty smooth
    Put back in pot, add honey and cook while continuously stirring. It should be a deep red color
    Add the butter, mix well and season with salt and pep to taste

    This stuff is the shit on burgers, any kind of chicken sandwich, effin' waffles, vanilla ice cream. You name it basically

  23. Ricotta Gnocchi in tarragon butter. *also see my bacon jam recipe added above*

    Gnocchi:
    1 (8 ounce) container ricotta cheese (NOT part skim variety)
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (use reggiano, not the crappy stuff)
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    1 cup all-purpose flour (for the dough) another 1/2 cup for cutting board/storing gnocchi

    Butter & garnish
    1/2 stick of butter
    Tarragon leaves
    2 pieces thinly sliced proscuitto
    Shaved parm

    Add ricotta, eggs, grated parm, salt/pepper/nutmeg into a bowl
    Mix very well until smooth
    Add flour and mix well
    Cover a cutting board(or clean counter) with 1/4 cup flour.
    Cover hands with flour and take out 1/4 of the dough and place on the floured surface
    Roll onto a ball, then roll out into "logs" about a 1/2 in thick
    *this dough will not be your normal consistency of bread dough and can be a little frustrating to mess with
    With a knife, cut the log into pieces about 3/4 in long
    Using two forks, place one fork on cutting board "tips up". Place a piece of the dough on fork, and use back of the other fork to "roll" it off the fork to obtain that gnocchi texture
    Place gnocchi on a floured surface and set aside

    Mince 1 tablespoon tarragon leaves, and put them with the butter in a sauté pan over low heat and let it the flavors build a bit

    Tear proscuitto into small pieces and crisp up in the oven

    Boil the gnocchi in heavily(4 tablespoons or so) salted water for about 90 seconds. (test a couple out before you cook them all)

    Turn up heat of butter to medium high and put gnocchi straight into pan, sauté for about 30 secs to a min, just long enough for the butter to brown(but not burn!!!!!!!)

    Remove and serve in a plate or bowl, garnished with shaved parm, proscuitto and tarragon leaves

    Also is great tossed in a simple red sauce if you don't wanna go with the butter. Enjoy!

    Here is how mine came out

  25. What's with the lack of dessert in this thread? I've posted threads before about my baking exploits... the one recipe that never fails to wow is my late grandmother's blond brownies. Recipe below is for an 8x8 pan but I always double it and go for the 13x9 pan.

    Blond Brownies

    1/3 cup butter (softened to room temp)
    1 cup flour
    1 cup brown sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1 egg
    1 tbsp milk
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 cup pecans (optional) (I am allergic so I've never made these with pecans.)
    1 pkg of chocolate chips (white or butterscotch are best, semi-sweet could be used as well)

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour an 8x8 pan. Combine all ingredients except the chocolate chips together and spread in pan. Batter will be VERY thick. If it is too thick to spread, add a little more milk. Before baking, cover batter with the package of chocolate chips. Bake for 30 min. Enjoy!

  29. CORN CHOWDER

    ½ lb bacon
    1 large onion
    4-6 garlic cloves
    3 ribs celery
    2 large potatoes
    1/4 tbs flour
    4 cups Chicken Stock
    ¾ c half and half
    1 can cream corn
    1lb frozen corn or 2 cans
    Salt, pepper, thyme, chili flakes

    Steps

    1) Dice bacon and brown it in stockpot until cooked thru and crunchy. Remove with slotted spoon, leaving about half the bacon fat (enough to coat pan). Reserve rest of fat for roux







    2) Over med high heat, add onion and celery, cook until translucent. Add garlic cooking another minute until fragrant. Season with salt and pepper and thyme.



    3) Sprinkle in flour making sure everything is coated. Stir over med heat adding in reserved bacon fat if looking to dry. Cook about five minutes until flour taste is cooked out and basic roux is formed
    4) Add stock and potatoes. Bring to a boil for 7 minutes to cook potatoes and they begin to break down but not mushy. Add the cream corn and frozen corn, some of the fresh parsley.

    *Secret Step* - not 100% necessary but just an extra layer of flavor-
    -Take half of frozen corn and roast in a saute pan coated in some olive oil with little onion, garlic, cayenne, s&p. About 10 mins til corn slightly darkens and flavor is concentrated. Add to Soup


    5) Slowly add half and half and simmer 15-25 minutes until thickness of your liking and vegetables are cooked through.


    6) Taste for seasoning and do so accordingly.
    7) Finish with crumbled bacon and a dash of fresh parsley on top of service bowls. Serve with crusty bread to dip
