Simple Italian Sausage w/Peppers and Onions

Ingredients:
1 lb. Sweet or Spicy Italian sausage.
2 Frying peppers (Cubanelle or Bell works fine)
2 Medium Onions
S&P To taste (I like putting red pepper flakes in mine to add a little heat, but this is optional and may be over powering if you opted for the spicy over the sweet sausage.)

Recommended Condiments: Mustard & Hot Sauce

PREP

1. Cut up 2 cups of onions and 2 cups of peppers into chunks (think of the size that you want on your roll) and keep them separated.


COOK (Medium heat throughout with the same pan)

1. Get a large enough frying pan that will be able to cook all the sausage comfortably without stealing too much heat from the pan. (Or use one of those griddle things that sit on the counter that have lids.)
Fully cook the sausage, poking holes to get some of the juices flowing into the pan. After they are brown on all sides and fully cooked, place them on some paper towels and set them aside with some tin foil.

2. Add a little bit of olive oil in the same pan if necessary to prevent the onions from sticking too much and cook them until brown and translucent and tender (about 5 minutes) COVERED AND UNDISTURBED over medium heat, making sure they don't burn.

3. Add peppers, S&P and other goodies you can think of, cook until peppers are tender, stirring occasionally.

4. Place sausage on amoroso's roll with some mustard, top with peppers/onions and a couple dashes of hot sauce and you're good to go.

Made this last night on a whim and was delicious.

The idea behind poking the holes is to use some of the fat from the sausage to cook the peppers and onions in... really just go easy on the oil. If you don't need it, don't add it. If they are good quality Italian sausages, poking a couple holes with a toothpick wont dry them out at all, which surprised me when my mom first showed me how to cook back when I was a kid.

Here is one that I created myself .. This is my personal recipe and it is published on allrecipes.com

Chicken Salad in a Hurry!
You can serve this on a bed of lettuce, in a pita pocket, in a wrap, etc .. the possibilities are endless! Quick, Easy, and Delicious!

Ingredients
[LIST][*] 1 rotisserie chicken, pull and shred chicken meat only (discard skin)[*] 2 chopped hard-boiled eggs (discard egg yolks)[*] 1/2 cup mayonnaise[*] 1/2 cup chopped apple[*] 1/2 cup chopped celery[*] 1/4 cup chopped onion[*] 1 teaspoon curry powder[*] 1/2 teaspoon paprika[*] 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper[*] salt to taste[/LIST]Directions[LIST=1][*]Mix the chicken, eggs, mayonnaise, apple, celery, onion, curry powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, and salt in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.[/LIST]*TIP* Still working on getting allrecipes to remove the skin and egg yolks from my recipe to make it a very low fat and low cholesterol meal!
Nutritional value included in allrecipes includes skin and yolks. Removal of these lowers the fat / cholesterol tremendously!

Default Herbed Fig Lamb and Iraqi Saffron Rice

I didn't like how this thread has died off, so I'm going to share part of the meal I cooked for the 4th, and I'm sure you'll like this.

Lets start with the Rice
Iraqi Saffron Rice (I did a lot more but I'll make this to serve 4-6)

Ingredients:
2 cups basmati rice
1/2 teaspoon saffron
2 tablespoons rose water
3 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter, check your farmers markets or hippie grocers)
1/4 cup toasted halved almonds
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1 large sweet onion, finely chopped (I used vidalias)
3 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup golden sultana raisins (just your dark golden raisins)
Water

Preparation:
Wash the rice until the cloudiness goes away.
Let the rice soak in plenty of water (dont just cover it as it will soak up water) for at least 2 hours - it will be softer and fluffier if you do this in the morning and come back to it for dinner.
Warm up your rose water in the microwave
Crush the saffron, you can use a spoon with rocking motions back and forth if you do not have a mortar and pestle.
Add saffron to warmed rose water, let this steep.
Add ghee to a warmed *** on medium high.
Add onions and let them sweat until they turn translucent.
Remove as much water as you can from your rice bath.
Add the salt, rice, and raisins to the *** and immediately cover with water until there's about 1/2" of water above the solid mass.
Turn the heat to high.
Add about 2/3 of the saffron rose water mixture, and slowly and carefully stir to distribute all the ingredients until it begins to boil.
Lower the heat to the lowest setting, cover the ***, placing a towel (paper will work too) between the lid and the ***.
Let this cook for about 45 minutes, do not touch the rice will its cooking, don't peek at it, just let it be!
Invert the *** onto a round dish, the top will have the caramelized crunchy rice from the bottom of the ***.
Carefully distribute the rest of the saffron rose mixture over the rice.
Garnish with the nuts, and serve.

Herbed Fig Lamb
This recipe is very simple and I'll avoid giving exact proportions

Ingredients:
Rack of lamb, frenched (or just precut chops)
Fig Jam/Jelly
A bunch of the following: Marjoram, Mint, Rosemary, Mint, Chives
Salt, Pepper
Onions
Garlic Cloves
Tomatoes
Sumac
Olive Oil

Preparation:
Preheat Oven to 220
Preheat grill to around 550F
Cut lamb into chops.
Lightly coat with olive oil and salt and pepper.
Sear both sides of the chops on a grill (about 2-3minutes per side on high)
Slice the onions and place onto the bottom of a nonstick pan
Halve and de-stem the tomatoes, cover the top with a thin layer of oil, season with salt pepper and a dash of sumac.
Place tomatoes around border of dish.
Finely dice the herbs
Coat lamp chops with think layer of fig jam and jelly
Coat the chops with the herbs.
Place above the onions but not the tomatoes.
Slice garlic and top the lamb with it.
Cover the dish with foil and bake for 3-4 hours.
In the last 30 minutes, raise the temperature to 450 and remove the foil.

The chops will be well done, but very tender, with gelatinized fat.

----

Eating:

Place tomatoes and chops above the rice. Eat.

Here's a simple Mango Avocado Salad I came up with one day.

3-4 Mangoes diced (ripe, but not too soft)
4-5 Avocados diced (again, ripe, but not too soft)
(there should be equal parts Mango and Avocado)
Sweet Onion diced (I like red onions, but any sweet onion would work)
2-4 Jalapenos minced (to taste. remove seeds if you want little heat, leave them if if you like it hot)
Fresh Cilantro chopped ( at least 1-2 Tbsp)
Juice of 2-3 Limes (to taste, for acidity)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Can also add some diced Jicama for extra crunch

I'm about to start cooking this for dinner right now and thought I would share. A very tasty and easy grilled salmon recipe.

-Salmon fillets (Look for ones with a color that is more red than pink, wild caught salmon is usually best)

-Brownsugar

-Lemon Pepper Seasoning

-Soy Sauce (I normally use kikkoman)

-A grill (preferably charcoal) and a fish holder like this one


Rub the salmon fillets on both sides generously with brown sugar and lemon pepper seasoning. If you have regular lemon pepper you can also add a little salt, but if it is lemon pepper seasoning the salt is already in it. Once the fish is coated place it in a ziploc freezer bag and add enough soy sauce to soak it. Put the ziploc bag in the fridge and marinate for 30mins to an hour, flipping the bag over once to make sure all of the fish is marinated. Remove the salmon from the bags and spray the fish holder with cooking spray. Place the marinated fillets in the fish holder securely. Get your grill nice and hot and place the fish holder on the grill so that the skin of the fish is facing down. Cook until the skin is black and crispy, then flip the fish over and cook the non-skin side until it is lightly charred. We normally serve this with rice, or some homemade redskin mashed potatoes.

A quick meal I like to make is my delicious shrimp scampi.

15-20 Large Frozen tail on or removed shrimp
3tbsp's salted butter
1 teaspoon of garlic
1 teaspoon of kurts (highly recommended. Its from Door County, Wisconsin) or lawrys weaning salt
1.5tbsp's lemon juice

Preperation:
Gather all the shrimp and put it in a large bowl with cold water. This will thaw it quickly without getting an overpowering fishy taste. Every 10 min empty the water and refill it. The frozen shrimp will get that water too cold. Once they are thawed, take off the tails by squeezing the sides and pulling/wiggling. Try to keep as much meat on the shrimp as possible. After this melt the butter on a frying pan.

Cooking:
Once the butter is melted, toss the shrimp in the frying pan, that way the shrimp will be creamy before all.the spices are on. After a minute or two, put the lemon juice in next. After another minute put the seasoning salt and garlic in with the shrimp and flip/toss them often.

Lastly, put the shrimp with some of the sauce on a plate and enjoy!

Default Groaty Pudding (AKA Groaty Dick)

Lately I've been strutting about proclaiming the greatness of Groaty pudding (or pud as it's often called) and it hit me that no one here knows what I'm talking about. Since I hate to see people spending too much on food given the current depression most of the world is in I thought I'd give you my dearly departed mum's recipe.

Ingredients:

0.5 lb groats
4 bay leaf
1.5 lbs shin of beef
one cup of salt free, top quality beef broth
one and half cups of table ale
half a cup fresh parsley
two tablespoons of fresh dill (optional)
1lb leeks
two medium sized onions

Cut the beef into bite-size pieces, slice the leeks into half inch thick bits and cube the onions. Place all the ingredients save the parsley and dill a stew jar and bake on a low temperature for at least three hours, longer if possible. In the last twenty minutes add the dill and parsley and stir well. A thicker, poor man’s version of this, with a pound of groats and one pound of beef, is almost as good will fit most budgets. If you make the poor man’s version it’s great spread on heavy rye, pumpernickel or black bread giving everyone a something warm, filling meal that is good for the soul.

I understand that Americans have electric slow cooking pots and if you've got one set it for four hours at a low temperature.

Oh, in case anyone doesn’t know groats are oats with the husks removed but before they are ground to produce oatmeal or steamed then rolled to make rolled oats or flakes. Groats have the highest nutritional value of any cereal and when absorb the other stuff in the pudding they are amazing. You can get them at any decent grocer or health food shop.

Leeks are a veg that is sort of like an onion but way better for cooking and you can get them at any decent health food shop.

The best table ales to use are milds, oat or rye ales and wheats ales that aren’t heavily hopped with a low alcohol content. Some like stouts (not the stuff with chocolate or coffee and other queer things) or old fashioned brown porters are often used but that never suited me.

Side dishes that go well are heavy rye, pumpernickel or black breads, pease (a yellow pea pudding), cabbage, potatoes and steamed carrots. This sort of meal is best served with a nice oat or rye ale or, if you can get it, a nice scrumpy if you want to discover what eating is all about!

Anyone willing to give this a go?

Seeing as I am poor, I will definitely try this.

Great way to make pasta sauce on the cheap:
1 lb cheap ground beef
1 can tomatoes with chile peppers
1 large can tomato paste
any hot spices you have on hand

brown the beef, drain the fat, add everything else and simmer for 5 minutes.
put on top of pasta and enjoy.
Its a little more expensive than premade sauce but its much more filling

Default Jamaican style barbecue chx


JAMAICAN BARBECUE CHICKEN



INGREDIENTS:

1 bunch scallions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 scotch bonnet chili, seeded and minced
1 1/2 TBSP tamari or soy sauce
1 TBSP veg oil
1 TBSP sweet paprika
2 tsp thyme, minced
1 4-lb chicken


METHOD

Combine first seven ingredients, season well with salt and pepper, and mash to a paste with a mortar and pestle, food processor, or Mason jar.

Spoon half the marinade into both cavities of the chicken, gently loosen the chicken skin from the meat and rub the remainder of the marinade under and over the chicken skin.

Put the chicken and marinade in a gallon-size ziplock freezer bag and place in the refrigerator overnight, turning it occasionally.

Grill over indirect heat, covered, for about an hour.

Uncover and baste with sauce, cover and continue to cook until chicken is done, basting with more sauce from time to time.

Chicken is done when the skin is deep mahogany brown and the thickest part of the thigh reads 170-175 on an instant read thermometer.



SAUCE:

1/2 c ketchup
3 TBSP tamari or soy sauce
2 scallions, minced
2 TBSP dark brown sugar
2 TBSP cider vinegar
1 TBSP grated ginger root

Simmer until thick, about 10 minutes. Away from flame, stir in 1 TBSP dark rum, simmer another 2 minutes or so.

NOTE: this works really well with a spatchcocked chicken, too.

Default best Margarita


BEST MARGARITA

An old bartender's trick is to squeeze citrus juice about 4 hours before it's needed. Allowing it to rest in an open container gives the oils time to oxidize, producing a mellower, yet more complex flavor.

By adding some of the citrus zest to the juice as it rests, the flavonones in the zest mask bitter compounds and enhance the perceived sweetness of the juice, producing a deeper, sweeter, more rounded flavor.

The measurements for the zest are just guidelines- it doesn't have to be too exact. When zesting the citrus, use only the colored part, not the bitter white pith that's under the zest.

A Microplane grater works well for zesting the fruit. Alternately, a vegetable peeler can be used to remove the zest in long strips.


INGREDIENTS:

1 TBSP (15mL) grated lime zest
1/2 cup (120mL) lime juice from 2 to 3 medium limes
1 TBSP (15mL) grated lemon zest
1/2 cup (120mL) lemon juice from 2 to 3 medium lemons
1/4 cup (60mL) superfine sugar
pinch table salt
2 cups (500mL) crushed ice
1 cup (250mL) 100 percent agave tequila , preferably Reposado (like Cuervo 1800 Reposado)
1 cup (250mL) Triple Sec


METHOD:

Combine the lime zest and juice, lemon zest and juice, sugar, and salt in large liquid measuring cup; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the flavors meld, at least a few hours or up to 24 hours.

Divide 1 cup of crushed ice between 4 or 6 margarita or double old-fashioned glasses. Strain the juice mixture into a 1-quart pitcher or cocktail shaker. Add the tequila, Triple Sec, and remaining crushed ice; stir or shake until thoroughly combined and chilled, 20 to 60 seconds. Strain into the ice-filled glasses and serve immediately.

These can also be served as frozen blended drinks.

Default Grilled new potatoes


GRILLED NEW POTATOES


INGREDIENTS:

3 lb small red-skinned potatoes
1 bunch thinly sliced scallions
3 TBSP chopped Italian parsley
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp chopped fresh oregano
3 TBSP grated Parmigiano Reggiano
olive oil


METHOD:

Cook potatoes in boiling salted water until just tender, 10-15 minutes, drain and cool.

Cut potatoes in half, transfer to a large bowl, and toss to coat with olive oil.

Grill potatoes over medium hot coals until golden, turning occasionally with tongs (about five minutes or so).

Return potatoes to bowl, toss with olive oil, garlic, parmigiano, herbs, and salt and pepper.

These things are mighty tasty.

Default Oatmeal


OATMEAL


INGREDIENTS:

1 C steel cut oats
1 TBSP butter
1/2 C whole milk
1/2 C buttermilk
1 TBSP brown sugar

METHOD:

Pan-toast the oats in the butter for about 2 minutes, until just turning fragrant. Add 3 C boiling water, stir, and reduce heat to simmer.

Allow to cook 25 minutes without stirring.

Add the milk and half of the buttermilk, stir gently and cook another 10 minutes.

Stir in the rest of the buttermilk, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.

This is how oatmeal is made.

Default String beans


GREEN BEANS

The initial blanch sets the color in these tender-crisp green beans so they stay nice and bright green.The beans can be blanched in advance and then quickly sauteed just before serving. Jarred roasted red bell peppers can be substituted for fresh. These are great served with just about anything.


INGREDIENTS:

1 lb string beans, trimmed
1/2 red bell pepper, charred, peeled, and cut into short strips
1 1/2 TBSP olive oil
1 1/2 TBSP butter
2 scallions, white and light green only, sliced very thin
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 c slivered almonds
2 TBSP Italian parsley, loosely chopped



METHOD:

Bring a large pοt of water to a rapid boil.

Meanwhile, pan-toast the almonds over medium heat until lightly golden brown, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Remove the almonds to a small bowl and reserve.

Salt the boiling water (about a tsp per quart of water), add the beans, keep uncovered at a rapid boil until the beans are bright green and just barely tender, 3 minutes for small young beans, up to 6 minutes for older, larger beans.

Drain the beans in a colander and immediately shock in ice water.

Once the beans are cool, drain again and pour out onto a clean, dry towel or several layers of paper towel. Blot dry.

When ready to serve, heat the oil in a frying pan and add 1/3 of the butter and the garlic. Stir until just fragrant, 30 seconds or a minute.

Turn the heat up to med-high, add the beans, roasted red peppers, scallions, almonds, another 1/3 of the butter, and season with salt and cracked pepper. Saute for two minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the parsley and the last of the butter, adjust seasoning, and add a squeeze of lemon juice or a few drops of sherry vinegar if needed. Serve.

Default Bananas Foster


BANANAS FOSTER



INGREDIENTS:


1/2 cup (120mL) packed dark brown sugar
4 TBSP (60mL) unsalted butter (1/2 stick)
1/4 cup (60mL) dark rum (like Myers or Coruba)
pinch of salt
2 large, firm, ripe bananas, peeled, halved lengthwise, and then halved crosswise
1 pint vanilla ice cream


METHOD:

Combine the brown sugar, butter and 1 TBSP (15mL) of the rum in a heavy-bottomed 12-inch skillet. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is thick, about 2 minutes. Don't use too much heat or the sauce will break.

Add the bananas, spooning some sauce over each piece. Cook until the bananas are glossy and golden on both sides, about 3 minutes. Scoop the vanilla ice cream into four bowls while the bananas are cooking, that way the ice cream will have time to soften slightly, and the bowls are ready to go when the bananas are done.

Off the heat, add the remaining 3 TBSP (45mL) rum and wait until the rum has warmed slightly, about 10 seconds. Wave a lit match over the pan until the rum ignites. Return the skillet to the heat, shaking the pan to distribute the flame over the entire pan. When the flames subside (this will take 15 to 30 seconds), divide the bananas and sauce among the four bowls of ice cream.

Salty Potatoes

Ingredients

One gallon of water
one and a half cups of table salt
3 pounds of tiny white potatoes.

(Precisely, no substitutes can be made.)

Directions

Bring water and salt to a boil, add potatoes and boil 20 minutes. Drain, add back to *** and let sit until dry and salt crust forms. Dip in melted butter and enjoy.

*The tiny potatoes ate key though. They'll be in the cold section of the produce at Kroger. (I'm sure you can check your other grocery stores, though.)*

Default Bissap


BISSAP


This Hibiscus tea is very popular in Senegal. You can make it with any number of additional flavorings, or any combination of several. Very nice to serve with hookah.


INGREDIENTS:

* two to three cups of dried hibiscus flowers (sorrel or roselle)
* one cup of Sugar

* one or two of the following optional flavorings:
* a few sprigs of mint
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 1 tsp grated fresh ginger root
* 1 tsp orange-flower water
* 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
* 1 cup fresh pineapple juice or fresh squeezed orange juice


METHOD:

Briefly rinse the dried flowers in cool water.
In a saucepan heat two quarts (approximately two litres) of cold water. As soon as the water begins to boil, add the dried hibiscus leaves. Immediately remove from heat and let the flowers steep for ten minutes. Pour the water from the *** into a pitcher using a strainer (lined with a cheesecloth if you like) to separate the flowers from the water. (Be sure not to pour any of the flower sediment into the pitcher.) Stir in the Sugar. Add any other flavorings (if desired).
Add ice and chill completely. May be served over ice.

Serve with hookah.
