Help dry out veal shoulder braised

Well I did it this time. I put a veal shoulder to braise and then fell asleep. By the time I woke up it had been in the oven for 9 hours at 325. All the liquid was gone and I'm left with dried out meat.
Can it be saved and if so what?

Education on smoked pork shoulder ham

Thank you all for your thoughts. I returned the ham and replaced it with a shank cut. I have searched and have a fairly good idea of what I will do with it! thanks again everyone!

Education on smoked pork shoulder ham

I don't know much about this subject. There are 3 different cuts I have noticed. There is the picnic that has a netting..currently the olymel brand is on sale...and then there are two different cuts... One has a round end, the other has a shank like bone at the end... I suspect the last two are cut in half and if they weren't they would make a whole shoulder.

My questions are.. What is a picnic and what cuts listed are best and why. The what to do with then once you bring them home? Any other suggestions or advise would be great. Thx

Storing coconut macaroons

How would you store coconut macaroons and still have them crispy on the outside?
I need to made 4-6 dozen as a shower gifts and need to make them ahead. How far ahead can I do this?
Also, I know I want a recipe without condensed milk and maybe have some with whipped egg whites and some with just beaten eggs. All suggestions and recipes are really appreciated. Thank you

over worked biscotti dough

I tried a new recipe for biscotti and the raw dough was way too sweet!
So in an attempt to correct this I added more flour, egg and milk. I ended up working it too long in the kitchen aid. I want to freeze them and bake them later and and am wondering if i let them rest in the refrigerate for a number of hours would that salvage them?

Thanksgiving around the corner...lets talk turkey! and tarts! and more!!

I've never heard of that...parchment paper...can you tell me more?

If it's wrapped, do you still baste. How's does the bird brown...is it as even as cheesecloth?

Thanksgiving around the corner...lets talk turkey! and tarts! and more!!

I've never used cheesecloth....do you wrap the stuffing in the cloth then stick it in the bird...do you tie the legs? I remember seeing martha stewart's bird had the stuffing all brown and crispy sticking out of the opening of the bird...which looked pretty, but you can have that look with the cloth....

I may still try it! Thanks for the tip and travel safely! oh, do you stuff the breast cavity without the cloth?

Thanksgiving around the corner...lets talk turkey! and tarts! and more!!

I too tried the breast side down but didn't find a difference. I most likely will do the martha stewart cheesecloth method. I don't know if it really keeps the turkey more moist, but it sure makes it brown beautifully!

Your confit's duck brick sounds great to me!
Question...what do you mean by a "moist" oven? And doesn't resting the turkey in the oven dry/overcook it??
Your stuffing sounds nice, do you use chicken stock and raw eggs to keep it together? recipe??

I wonder what people's thoughts are on stuff turkeys verse unstuffed turkeys....is the stuffing better in the turkey??? Food for thought..

stuffed eye of round recipe and tips

I have a 3.3 lb eye of round, I was thinking of stuffing it with sauted mushrooms, parm cheese, little shallot and garlic, add breadcrumbs and egg to bind and stuff the butterflied meat.
I am wondering if I could use the cooking method of high temperature (475) 7 mins per pound then shut oven off and leave leave it in the unopened oven for 2-3 hours??? I am also thinking of browning it before placing it in the oven. Also, should I wrap it in foil before placing in oven and should I add some wine for moisture???
Any suggestions on recipe for stuffing and how to cook this meat would be appreciated.
thank's

have key limes.....now what

Hello All, thanks for the suggestions and tips, I decided to make lime curd, thanks BBL, I used your recipe. And also to Sunshine for the tip, I used a garlic press, cut the key limes and half and squeezed! Great tip, the only thing I noticed is that some of the oil from the skins made it a bit bitter. It should still be alright.....WIll make some tarts out of the curd...again thanks for all the responses!!!

Secrets to good meatballs?

I too agree, water is the trick, I add some salt to my water and let the meat rest for about an hour. My meatballs are very soft and I don't brown them, I drop them into the sauce and simmer. Since they are soft I don't touch them once I drop them into the sauce until at least 15-20 mins. I will take the pot and gentle swirl it round and round after about 5 mins so that nothing stick, I do this quite a few times. Everyone raves about how tender and moist they are.
