Re: Post a photo of something you ate today

I think it will make great jerky, chuck is not usually one of the higher fat portions of meat. Are you going to thinly slice it and air dry it, oven dry it or ground it up and use your jerky gun and dehydrator?

They label it as you see, but London Broil is a method of preparation, not a actual cut of beef. Technically, it's one of the Beef Round cuts, not chuck.

It's gonna be chilled in the freezer to firm it up, sliced against the grain, pounded a bit to tenderize it, marinated overnight then dried in my bigazz dehydrator.

ho fun noodles
Instead of making beef chow fun noodles, i ended up using shrimp, mixed with tofu, portabella mushrooms and some scallions....

Kids loved it...

Haven't actually eaten any yet, it's for tomorrow but I just made 2 loafs of banana bread, one with walnuts one without any nuts. My house smells soooo good right now. Used my grandma's recipe that I got from my mom.

MOM’S BANANA NUT BREAD

• 1/3 cup shortening

• 1/2 cup sugar

• 2 eggs

• 1 teaspoon baking powder

• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

• 1/2 teaspoon salt

• 1 ¾ cup AP flour

• 1 cup ripe bananas ( mashed )

• 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Cream shortening and sugar together, add eggs and beat well.

Sift dry ingredients together. Add to creamed mixture alternately with mashed bananas. Mix well after each addition. Mix in chopped nuts.

Pour into a well greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted into loaf mid way between center and outside comes out clean. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack. When cool wrap in aluminum foil or plastic wrap

Homemade Beef Jerky

OK, here it is....

I used this recipe as a rough guide, then pretty much messed with it entirely. There's about 4 kinds of chile powders and 3 hot sauces in there, plus a few other additions. I was going for a nice spicy warmth, smokey, semi-sweet with a touch of tangy.

Bad flash...but here' the marinade and the sliced up meat, Yes, I sliced it all by hand and on a diagonal bias.



In it goes! That went in the fridge overnight.



Now it gets down to it. I used gloves 'cus I didn't want to die handling the meat as I "squeegeed" the excess spicy marinade off with my fingers and laid them out.



Like so...it Begins.



Gotta have a close-up eh?



The dehydrator gets up to nearly 160F, so it only took about 7hrs. I turned the peices about once an hour and dabbed off any grease w/ a paper towel. Worked out damn well.



When cooled, proper jerky should bend and crack, but not snap. I think I did it about perfectly. BTW, that isn't oil you see shining, it's carmelized goodness.



When it was fully cooled, I tossed 'em in a plastic sack with a pinch of a custom chile powder and shook 'em up to add a bit of extra flavor and visual appeal. Also added a silica packet just to make sure it stays fresh.

I think for a $15 dryer I got at Thrift it did a rather good job.

That jerky looks good!
I use Hi Mountain jerky cure. It's a dry rub type vs wet and it's great.

Also, if you are going to do a lot of jerky etc I recommend getting yourself an Excalibur dehydrator. Shop around on Ebay and you can get one pretty reasonable. I picked up a 9 tray one new for about $180.00 I used to use the round one like you have and it's really a PITA. Have to rotate the trays etc plus it's round and your jerky isn't which means a lot of wasted space.

Yeah, I know about the Excalibur line from my chilehead peeps. When you have bushels of pods to dry, they swear by 'em.

But, I'm a poor guy and this does just dandy. It has nine trays as well but I only used 2½ of them for this test batch.

IDK what you mean by rotating trays...I just checked on them once an hour and flipped/dabbed the pieces as I said...no fuss. Beats using my toaster oven.

with apologies for being too buzzed and full to post these yesterday, here are some photos from Saturday's visit to Woodfire Grill in Davenport »www.gowoodfire.com/

the first of 2 delicious Mango margaritas!

The Woodfire had a special offer via Facebook.... "like" their page and get a free appetizer with the purchase of 2 entrees. one of the other couples was kind enough to let me have a taste of their appetizer.

my dinner... WHISKEY SRIRACHA SALMON. whiskey glaze : fire-roasted vegetables : horseradish redskin smashed potatoes.
(Does this look healthier than my Kuma's Corner choices from Thursday?)

once I saw the dessert menu, HAD to go with Bread pudding.

Rotating as in taking the bottom tray and moving it to the top and so forth. Since the heat comes from the bottom on the round dehydrator you will dry the bottom way faster than the top if you don't rotate.

Ah, gotcha. I suppose that would come into play were I using more of the trays.

I mainly did it for the fun of it and to make jerky that is actually pretty hot for ME. Nothing found in the stores is even warm and buying the real hot stuff online is like buying the golden calf a slice at a time.

edit:
Good news, it passed the bag test. After sitting overnight in a sealed bag, there's no condensation or stickyness.

Remember I'd said I had bought a rump roast?

Well, I slow-cookered it last night. .yummmmy!!










Fork tender goodness.

Even gave some of the inner part with the least marinade/spices to Tiki, she definitely approved.

Here's some follow-up stuff that was made with the roast or with by-products of the process.

My "Cheesesteak" Burrito: Quick, simple, delicious.

The roast, onion, pickled Jalapenos, and cheese with a bit of cayenne, celery salt, and garlic pepper.


The Fixin's



Nom Nom



The Close Up


The leftover broth from cooking the roast mostly went into a container in the fridge for later use. But, I kept some back for making a tasty stew.

The rich spicy broth + added water, Russet Potatoes, a Carrot, Onions, 2 cloves of Garlic, Summer Sausage, Mexican Oregano, Thyme, a Bay Leaf, and Wide Noodle Pasta.


Soup's on!



Mmmm, savory goodness.

Thanks!

The only real spicy stuff is the store-bought Melinda's Hab sauce, but it's not that hot IMO. The pickled Jalapenos are just tasty.

The stew isn't spicy, except in a peppery sort of way. It could use some Barley, but didn't have any on hand.

resurrecting this thread just seemed like the right thing to do....

Vietnamese hand roll. inside a rice paper roll, you will find shrimp, rice, vermicelli, mint and romaine lettuce. served with homemade dip

then:

wok fried chicken, with roasted cashew nuts, bell pepper, onion in a roasted sweet chili sauce... delicious!
— at LemonGrass Cafe

dessert?
since my entree was on the hot/spicy side, figured a malt from Whitey's would take the heat out... a medium Mint Chocolate Chip was my choice this time

I do a similar roll - with shrimp, Chinese noodles, carrot, lettuce, and a bit of cilantro. The sauce is a mix of soy, hoisen, and rice wine vinegar with chopped peanuts - it is the peanuts that are the killer ingredient in the sauce.

Carrot Bread, one of the most delightful breads that I enjoy. I had it for dinner a little back and couldn't help snapping a shot of it before I ate it. It was melt in your mouth with flavor.

I love carrot cake/bread. In years past, I'd ask for a carrot cake for my B-day instead of the usual sugar-bomb stuff.

Now I wanna make one! My toaster oven fits a 6x9 loaf pan nicely too...which saves on the heat caused from cranking up my huge old stove.
