What's for Dinner? #346 - The Deep Freeze Edition!

No ricotta or mozzarella, so whipped some shredded jack & cheddar, and some parmesan with the egg (made an interesting top layer). First layer was sausage in an Alfredo sauce. Only two noodle layers....

Is it okay to bring Kimchi to work/school yet?

Soypower,
Enjoy your kimchi when and where you want.
I have for the past 35 years and only a few people over that span have ever complained.

They are really good. You get thr crisp of fried potato with the soft of the baked at the same time (just slice them thick enough). Done in bacon grease is heaven.

Fog lifted for a little while yesterday so we decided to go to Costco and pick up some wing sections (10 pounds) for some more KFC soon. Before we even got to the store the fog was back and visibility was down to about two or three car lengths. Got the wings and my wife decided she wanted buffet instead of cooking. Golden Corral - Meh.

Tonight used up leftover baked potatoes by frying and topping with onion and poblano pepper strips. Eggs over easy and fried hot dog on the side. Everything cooked in bacon grease.

As kimchi sours, it sometimes looses the bright red color. Sometimes not. I haven't figured out what the difference is caused by, but it seems that extended periods of non refrigeration increases the chance of losing that "brightness".
My wife has mostly replaced sugar with splenda now, and the kimchi seems to stay much firmer and retain the bright red more often than before.

Madagascar colossal shrimp

We have done the giant shrimp on a grill plate with great results.
Shell and de-vein, either cut in half lengthwise or leave whole, brush with lightly salted toasted sesame oil and toss on a hot grill plate.
Great wrapped in kimchi (or not) with loose leaf lettuce, sliced garlic, button mushrooms (grilled on the same plate), and a dab of ssamjang.

That egg is just beautiful. I have done crusted eggs before using potato or rice flour, but they look nothing like this.

Sesame substitute

Perilla seeds and oil are often used in Korea instead of sesame. Different flavor but good results.

Socked in by fog all day today, so thick can just barely see our back fence. Temp dropped below freezing so now the fog is freezing to everything.
Great day for pork and tofu soup.

Kalbi Sal?

One of the best ways to enjoy this cut is with a Ssam style set up.
In the first picture we are doing Ssam style with pork belly, but Kaib Sal works just as well.
You can marinate like any Kaibi or just simply salt and pepper with a brush of toasted sesame oil.
The second picture is both boneless beef ribs and pork belly on the grill.
The third is a close up of kalbi ssam (kaibi in lettuce wrap)

Kalbi Sal?

Kaibi Sal is meat from or near the short ribs. It is usually marinated like kaibi (bone in) and quickly grilled over high heat.
Can also be used in some type of braised dish, or even stir fried.

The red and white strips?

That is fake crab, very similar to a type of fishcake in Korea and possibly Japan. The other toppings are zucchini, thin sliced rolled omelet, and enoki mushrooms.

Somyeon noodles in anchovy broth. Kind of a mixed noodle dish. With kimchi of course.

That sounds pretty good, and fits right in with my Mixed Up Cuisine Nights. Maybe with some kimchi on top...

Mixed up Cuisines tonight.
Pan seared pork chops simmered in a Korean inspired spicy sauce, Southwest inspired pepper corn, and meat n potato American inspired oven baked potatoes.
Desert was Hoddeok, a Korean brown sugar filled pancake.

What's for Dinner #344 - Happy MLK Day Edition! [through Jan. 21, 2015]

Managed to turn the crusted chuck roast in this pic into the dish in the next pic.

Started off with the intention of making a slow cooker pot roast, but the cooker (my son's) turned out to be too small.

My other son wound up with a night shift.

Shifted gears and turned it into Almost a Pot Roast Stew.

Superbowl 2015

Korean Spicy chicken wings are a great game day food. They are sweet/spicy and usually disappear very quickly.
The wings are coated and deep fried, then stir fried in the sauce.

I posted a recipe here that quite a few hounds have enjoyed over the years.

Far as I know there are no "rules".
My wife and I both love wasabi with soy sauce as well as the more traditional Korean dipping sauces.
A Korean plum/soy sauce is another really good one.

It was really, really good.

Two dipping sauces; soy sauce/wasabi and honeyed soy sauce.

Too much Zucchini - help

Slice, dredge through flour or corn starch, dip in egg bath, dredge through sweet rice flour, fry over medium to high heat. Serve with a sweetened soy sauce based dipping sauce.

Restaurant Name Has Nothing to do With The Food Served

My former restaurant had the word Seoul in the name. I can't count the number of times people were upset that I didn't serve Soul food.

"Impurities" in bone broth

Meats and meat products have not always been as clean as they are today. Open air hanging, no refrigeration, etc led to flies and other critters leaving things behind them.
The original "impurities" were bug eggs, dust, bone fragments, and whatever else you can imagine.
Much of this loosened in an initial vigorous boil and floated to the top with the foam.
With today's much cleaner food handling in many countries, this isn't much of a problem anymore. The continued use of the term "impurities" is most likely a carryover from the past, and come to mean the blood and liquid fat.
