Have you ever considered adopting a 41 year old?
I had a great meal planned... Wings from the top wing place in town.
But I caught a cold and I can't taste squat today... Combined with this "memorable" SB... It's been a heck of a day.
I've been on a diet, and I've been incredibly good! Lots of lean proteins, fruits, veggies, and healthy carbs! No Soda's or desserts.
But today.. ALL BETS WERE OFF!
Food courtesy of Chili's. Honey Chipolte chicken crispers, Big Mouth bites (12 of them), an abundance of chips and salsa, Steak and Bacon quesadillas, and I've already had 8 cans of coke! YEEEEAAAAAH Feels good!
And awful.. but mostly good ! I ate a few of the veggies for good measure!
^ As you can see, even my dog thought it looked delicious. Didn't notice that until just now lol.
Is that a tongue I see hangin' out? The dog's I mean, not yours.
Cardne Adovada Egg Rolls
Here's one that we did for Super Bowl this year.
Honey/Molasses/Brown Sugar (This is for bitterness in your Red Chili, you can use any of these but not all)
Frozen Bueno Red Chile (If you don't have frozen, I can also tell you how to make Red Chile from scratch)
Egg Roll Wraps
Deep Frying Oil
Buy a decent cut of Pork Roast, whatever size you might need to provide adequate amounts of meat for your family/friends etc. Hand Rub salt and pepper on to meat and set Roast to bake on 200 degrees over nite. Allow to slow cook until Roast will fall apart.
Take your Frozen Red Chile and defrost. Once Chile is defrosted, put in a pan and add salt, pepper and whatever additional seasonings you may like. Cook over a medium flame until Red Chile is done. Once Chile is at a boil, add either Honey, Molasses or Brown Sugar to take away bitterness. Be sure to taste regularly. You do not want it too sweet, just enough to dull bitterness.
Once Roast is done, take a fork and simply shred the pork like you would for pulled pork. Add the read chile to the pork until it is mixed all the way through.
Heat your oil in a pan or deep fryer. I use Olive Oil but you can use something else, if you prefer. You want the temp of the fryer to be hot enough to flash fry but not burn. Also, you don't want the oil too hot so that it simply soaks into your food.
Take Egg Roll Wraps (you can buy these in most Grocery Stores) and lay them out flat on flour or use wax paper. Spoon in the Red Chile Pork (Adovada), you can file your wraps as thick or thin as you like. The Wraps are square so you want to fold over, then fold the ends over and then simply roll up into the shape of an Egg Roll. You want to just slightly wet the end of the Egg Roll Wrap (wet the end that is face up, not the end face down) with water so that it sticks when you finish rolling your Egg Roll.
Once you have finished rolling up your egg roles, as many as you would like, and after you have brought your oil up to temp, 375 degrees or so, depending on how many egg rolls you are frying (the more egg rolls, the lower the oil temperature drops, adjust temp accordingly) fry until golden brown. Flip Egg Roles as necessary in order to make sure you don't burn on one side. Be sure to drain off oil in frying pan or Deep Fryer. This will prevent your Egg Rolls from being too greasy. Allow Egg Rolls to cool slightly on paper towels but don't cover. This will make them soggy rather then the desired Golden Crispy Brown. Once you set them aside, you may wish to lightly sprinkle with salt.
You can use this recipe with a lot of stuff. You can use BBQ, you can use beef with Green Chile or you can just make good old Egg Rolls. It's great for anything. Heck, they also make great Breakfast Treats if you want to use Scrambled Eggs mixed with cheese and bacon or Sausage.
You can also reheat them in the oven or in a toaster oven.
These are great for parties or if your just sitting around watching a game. Try this and let me know how it works for you.
Buy a pressure cooker. It's a lot faster and it cuts the gaseous output significantly.
yeah, her tongue is covering her nose lol.
just do the quick soak on pintos..cook like regular after. cumin, onion, chili powder, ham hocks, cilantro, rotel. salt late
anyone like lamb schanks?
Oh yeah. I just don't get a lot of meat. I revolt on occasion though. What ya got?
ill have to find the recipe..stewed with red wine and herbs, rosemary, although not a huge fan. it does take two for a meal though. i.ll find the whole thing tmrw.
DON'T COOK BEANS IN THE SAME WATER YOU SOAK THEM IN!
The liquid that you soak them in contain the indigestible sugars and enzymes that cause the toots.
FYI- House plants LOVE the water you used to soak your beans in.
You should always soak them but it still takes several hours to cook them, even if you soak them. If you don't have time, pressure cooker will get them done in about an hour. Can't beat it if you are pressed for time.
So it's snowing in Big D. Several neighbors took off from work. Ho hum, we're all bored. THEN, oh happy dayy...my buddy comes in from his offshore job in the Gulf w/ 5 Lbs of 16-20 shrimp!
The ONLY logical thing to do is...Julienne and blanch some red and yellow bell peppers. Mince some garlic and jalapenos. Wrap the little darlings in some nice bacon. Grill over a med-hot, pure Mesquite-wood fire. Glaze w/ a jalapeno jelly BBQ sauce just before pulling off the fire. Oh look....nobodies bored anymore...mostly because they're asleep w/ full tummies!
You're a BBQing machine.
