What are people making lately?
Here's what I made today.


Pork Ragu recipe (courtesy of @Stale):
One 3-pound boneless pork shoulder
1 tablespoon corn oil
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, diced
1 large sweet onion, diced
1 large carrot, diced
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 small can tomato paste
1 cup dry white wine
2 cups chicken stock
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup honey
salt and pepper
3 tablespoons cream cheese
1 large bag of wide egg noodles

pre-heat the oven to 300

In a large cast iron dutch oven, heat oil and brown shoulder on all sides, remove from pot.

Add apple, onion, carrot and stir over medium heat for 3 minutes. Add seasoning, garlic, and stir for 2 minutes, add tomato paste and wine, bring to boil and stir 2 more minutes. Add stock, vinegar, and honey, bring to boil, stir, add pork and cover.

Place in your oven and cook for 4 hours, turn every hour. Remove as much of the pork as you can, discard any large pieces of fat. Transfer the sauce to a food processor or use a stick blender and pulse until smooth. Place the pork back into the sauce and shred with two forks. Taste, season as needed. Stir in Cream cheese, taste and season as needed.

Serve over the cooked egg noodles.

    Yesterday I made a beef vindaloo and it was amazing. I didn't take photos because it looked like lumpy brown stuff.

    But yeah I had it in the slow cooker for like 8 hours and the meat was so tender and I was thinking of putting the leftovers in a pie tonight.

    that sounds awesome.
    I wish I could say I had tasty leftovers, but I think almost everyone had at least 2 helpings.
    The ragu was pretty phenomenal.

    Tonight my lady is coming over to use my washing machine.

    Her building, which has like 50 apartments, has one washer and one dryer.

    Anyway while she's here I'm going to make pasta with a little chicken in tomato, red pepper and cream sauce, and I'm gonna roast up some cauliflower for the side.

    I hope my new kitchen has everything I need for it!

    I'm making a birthday dinner for my mom tomorrow and I haven't actually planned anything yet! Probably I will go with some kind of bacony alfredo pasta thing, that usually seems to make people happy.

    I got excited about trying Stale's pork ragu recipe before I remembered my kids wouldn't eat it. Oh well!

    EDIT: I made this the other day. I guess it doesn't require that much skill to make, but I felt it was fairly impressive anyways.

    Our cabinets are sadly lacking in things like olives and onions or it would've been a bit more extravagant.

    Yesterday I decided to make pizza. Half BBQ chicken, half sausage/bacon/pepperoni. Oh, and vegetables.

    Oh! And a chocolate mayonnaise cake. That tasted great.

    I made roasted pumpkin seeds with cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg tonight. The house smells amazing and I wish I could share them, because I'm in danger of eating the whole tray!

    roastedpumpkinseeds.jpg

    Recipe:
    I prefer hulled pumpkin seeds for roasting, but you can pull them right out of your pumpkin while you carve it if you want. If you're having trouble finding them raw, there's a good chance your local health food store has a fresh supply of them.

    1 1/2 cups raw pumpkin seeds
    2 tablespoons melted butter (or oil of your choice)
    2 tablespoon granulated sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 12x16'' baking sheet with foil.

    Mix up the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a small container and set it off to the side. Melt the butter and mix it up with the seeds in a large bowl. Pour in the cinnamon/sugar into the bowl and mix until everything is evenly coated.

    Pour the seeds out onto the tray, spread them out into an even layer, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the seeds start to brown. Every 10 minutes, pull the tray out to stir the seeds. Let them cool for a few minutes, then eat 'em while they're still warm! I'm not sure how long they keep or the best way to store them because they're usually devoured before then.

    Optional, but reccomended: Wash them down with a mug of warm apple cider.

    Fall is the best. If anyone else has some good Fall-appropriate recipes, please share!

    Dave, when she comes over, are you going to drop a small load in her?

    Or maybe ask her to do it by hand?

    I decided against doing actual marinara and used a combination of 3 parts tomato puree to one part tomato sauce to try and retain the consistency, but brought it to a regular heat as a sauce. It tasted alright, but I am also drunk and all my food smells and tastes amazing right now so I'll let you know tomorrow how well this expirment welnt

    Nice.

    I don't take photos of what I cook most of the time, because I always think it looks goddamn ugly. I've not yet reached the stage where food looks good as well as tastes. But it usually tastes fine, so eh!

    I made Stale's potato salad without bacon for my mother today. It's still damn tasty, but the flavor is surprisingly different without the bacon. Or not surprisingly, really, considering that you cook the onions, garlic, and potatoes in the bacon drippings for a little bit.

    I am so happy that ragu turned out good. I was legit worried it was going to be horrible and all these forumers would be all staring at each other with mouthfuls of crap and too uncomfortable to say it was crap, so just silently chewing crap and hoping for death.

  • StaleStale Registered User regular
    unless it really was and you are just saying that to make me feel better in which case you shouldn't, I need to know it was crap so I can fix it.

    I don't want my friends eating crap.


    I want them to be all:

    So.

    The recipe for pork buns (which is quite literally the only thing I've been thinking about since I've had them besides climbing) is available on the internet. Down for making the buns.

    Plus you can premake the belly two days before eating.

    Guess what I'm doing on the weekend......

    Always be pleased with making awesome food, meatloaves included.
