Food & Drink

Post by Dean on Sun Jul 17, 2011 9:53 pm

So I know we've never thought about this but how about a thread where you can talk about food & drink, whether it's I need a receipe for, I tried this and OMG to what is this ... Anything here's the section. I'm not sure how used it will be but let's see if it's useful.


Tonight I made pork chops and added roasted veg. I did the usual of onion, peppers and carrot but found out that apparently cauliflower roasted is good. So in a seperate dish I added the florets, olive oil and salt and pepper. Then roasted it, it was much nicer than normal. I hate soggy cauliflower and this kept it's firmness while still being tender and cooked. However the bonus was it had no bitterness that cauliflower can have.

Give it a go, it was yum.

Found anything you liked and want to share?

Smokey Bones lol love the name. Shouldn't they do ribs?

Going to attempt to make American Sticky Ribs on Friday as a treat for hubby. Calls for Hoisin sauce & honey not sure how American that is but sounds good with a large portion of Jalapeno coleslaw ! Trying to think of other finger foods to add with it but I think he'd just rather eat more ribs.

Definitely get some baby wipes too, lol! Somkey Bones definitely does have ribs but I kinda don't like to order them when I go out to eat (no real classy way to eat them) and I love me a good well done burger every now and then. I got this turkey burger... it was great!

Sorry, if I actually cooked I would type about it here!

Hey let's just leave it as anything to do with food !

I love to cook and tonight I made a new dish really yummy but a little tweaking is needed I think.

In a saucepan add about 75gms per person of long grain rice, add 200mls of hot veg stock per person, bring it to the boil with a lid on then simmer for about 10 minutes or until the rice has absorbed the stock. I would make that mostly water as the stock was too salty for me.

Meanwhile cook a sliced onion in some groundnut/peanut oil until brown. Add about 3 rashers of streaky bacon per person cut up along with one sweet red pepper per person roughly chopped. Fry until the bacon is crisp.

Add the cooked rice to the cooked bacon, pepper and onions. Add a few handfuls of frozen peas and a good splash of Worcester sauce, stir until peas are cooked was yummy.

It was just what we needed that night quick and not a lot of washing up.

Not much washing up is always a good thing! I love one pot dishes for that very reason.

Has anyone made any recipes from Pioneer Woman? I absolutely adore her. I have cooked many of her recipes and I think there has only been one that I was disappointed with. Sometimes, I have adjusted her recipes a little to make them more suitable for a European pallette, like for instance, she puts a heck of a lot of sugar - even in savory things - and I tend to use half the amount of butter she does, but its all really good. Sometimes finding a British substitute for the ingredients can be tricky too when she uses branded products that are not available here, but it is all good fun.

My favourite is this Meatball recipe. My husband goes nuts for them. Plus, the qty the recipe makes you can easily freeze 2 thirds (prior to cooking) which saves time another day.

Never heard of her.

The recipe looks interesting, I oven cook for convenience my meatballs usually already made. I might try these but I'd make a different sauce and hubby likes his with real spaghetti (not tinned) Ronon Eater

Once the meatballs have been browned in a pan, you oven cook them with the sauce. I dont follow her sauce recipe as it is far too sweet. I just use home made passata (made from my very own tomatoes this time), and fresh pasta.

Anybody ever have fish tacos? I wanna try them but never wanna waste a meal out in case I don't like them. I guess I should try making them at home or something, lol.

Hubby's had them we weren't keen but I know they're popular. Is there anywhere you could go try them as a starter or visit Taco Bell if it's in existence and see ?

Lemme put it this way, its so awesome at like 3am when you're craving a lot of food in the worst way but have virtually no money but you always regret the decision to eat there, sometimes sooner rather later.

We'll have to hit up one of those while I'm there then so I can say I've been to the British equivalent of Taco Bell/Ihop/Denny's and/or The Waffle House!
