If you find a good fresh Italian sausage that you really like, don't forget, you can just buy the links and slice open the casings.......voila, ground sausage.

 

Yep, a pretty well known trick, use it all the time. 

 

 

Tonight I had roasted lamb sandwiches. Few slices of roasted leg of lamb on fresh sourdough bread, with caramelized onions and garlic Au Jus. Butter the bread, put the sandwich together and cook like a toasted cheese, in a nonstick pan. One of my better creations.

I considered doing that as well. Didn't want to mess with it though and thought the pre-formed patty idea would make some sense.

 

Recipe is easy and is at realdeepdish.com.

Alright, it's not haute cuisine, but it was cold, rainy, and raw down here last night.  That calls for one of our favorite comfort foods....

 

MEATLOAF!  With mashed potatoes and green beans.....no fancy fresh haricot verts, green freakin' beans, right outa the damn can!

 

Mmmmmmmm.....!!   :banana:

I'm guessing that everything tastes better on that plate from Spain!

We haven't been able to swim for 4 or 5 weeks now.  That's just brutal.....completely unacceptable!   Thankfully, we can fire up the hot tub to get us all the way through to the February warm-up.....   :-P

Pork loin and cabbage. Slow cooked in large pot with two medium bay leaves. Water to cover and add two bottles of stout. Quarter the cabbage and jam down the sides of the pot 25 minutes before serving.

I'm Cherokee the wife is German. I let her do the cooking. Go figure.

Had a hankerin' for some ribs.

4 hours at low temp with a nice home made dry rub:



Then another half hour with a store bought Apple Butter BBQ sauce finished with a quick broil.



Sauce was a little too sweet for my tastes, might just stick with the dry rub next time around. Fall off the bone tender though.

Mmmmmm

Those look great! That's the reason I usually do dry rub only. In fact, my wife and I have perfected "Rendezvous style" ribs (for anyone who's been there). They are dry rub only and grilled at about 400 for about an hour. I doubted it was possible to make great ribs in that amount of time. You definitely don't get as much smoke, but just as tender, and really delicious.

Let's see ... the most recent thing I made that I have a picture of is chicken pot pie. I'm not good at placing the crust, apparently, but it all tasted great.

Really? Are the covered? Mine go for about 3.5 to 4 hours at around 275-300*. I used to boil then broil because that's how I learned back in my restaurant job days. Then I started to steam instead of boil, but both those methods suck IMO. Low and slow has been the best method I've found.

Would you mind sharing that recipe?

I would love to try it.

I'll try to dig it up when I get home. I know I have the recipe somewhere.

Rendezvous Ribs:

 

Dry rub:

 

8 parts paprika

4 parts garlic powder

4 parts chili powder

3 parts salt

1.5 parts whole mustard seed

1 part crushed celery seed

1 part whole celery seed

1 part dried oregano

1 part dried thyme

1 part whole allspice

.5 part ground allspice

1 part whole coriander seed

.5 part ground coriander

.5 part Ac'cent seasoning (basically MSG, you can leave this out if you can't find it or have an issue with it)

Optional: 

.5 parts cayenne

1 part light brown sugar

 

Basting liquid:

 

6 tablespoons of dry rub

1/2 cup while vinegar (apple cider is a nice alternative)

1/2 cup water

4 tablespoons ketchup or BBQ sauce (I prefer ketchup)

 

Ribs:

 

The basting liquid is enough for two regular sized slabs. Rendezvous ribs are traditionally baby backs, but I prefer St. Louis ribs because they are generally meatier and have a higher fat content. Either work well. 

 

Method:

 

Depending on your grill, you may need to create an indirect heating area. If you have a large grill where the grate is 18+ inches away from the fire, you should be ok. Otherwise, you'll fight flareups and indirect heating is best. Get your grill heated up to about 350 degrees. Place the ribs on the grill and mop liberally with the basting liquid. Every 15 minutes, mop the ribs and flip. They should be ready in 60 - 75 minutes. When the ribs are tender, give them another mop, then sprinkle liberally with dry rub. 

 

A few tips:

 

You can also do these on a broiler rack in the oven at 400 degrees. The best way to mop them is to cut a 1 foot square out of an old t shirt, ball it up on the end of a wooden spoon, and wrap with rubber bands or a zip tie to keep it on the spoon.

 

We've done these a handful of times, always with great results. The cooking time is pretty approximate. Baby backs will cook a little faster, and it all depends on how hot your grill is, and how much heat you lose during mopping.
