#1588050 Burgers? Hell Yeah!!

Posted by Rajun Gardener on 17 October 2018 - 08:04 PM

After chile and wings burgers have to be next right?

Everything went on the grill except lettuce and tomatoes, the buns are a local onion burger bun.

On the left bun is sauteed mushrooms and onions with SalsaLady's Worcestershire sauce. Under the lettuce is a tomato hiding and green peppers, they ate all the red before I could get some.

It was cooked a little more than I wanted but it was juicy and finger licking good,  The burger was so big I didn't even touch the sweet potato fries.

#1587974 MFRB Of All Unripened Pods. Price Negotiable.

Has anyone tried cutting the plant at the ground and hanging it inside/garage to try to get ripe peppers? Some people do that with tomatoes, it supposedly allows the fruit to live off the plant a little longer and hopefully ripen.

Enter this!

Straight 100_3049.JPG

 

When this started it was too hot for October and I immediately thought Caribbean. Pumpkin spice is so close to Jerk I had to go that route.

I started off with a pack of Jerk marinade and then kicked it up a few notches.

1 pack of Weber Jerk marinade

1 small onion

¼ cup red and green bell pepper

1 deseeded Habanero, I have to keep it family friendly

3 cloves of garlic

2 scallions

1 bunch of Cilantro, I used mostly stems

2 tbs Soy sauce

2 tbs EVOO

1 tbs Sriracha

2 tbs Mae-Ploy Sweet Chili sauce

 

Chopped up and ready for the swim

100_3001.JPG

Wings cut and cleaned

100_3004.JPG

I had to add a little Cajun to it.

100_3006.JPG

A closer look, I don't think you can buy this but I like the label.

100_3007.JPG

 

In a ziplock to marinade over night, I saved some marinade to make a sauce

100_3008.JPG

This morning I didn’t think the smell of the store bought jerk seasoning was strong enough so I made some.

I couldn’t stop with just “Pumpkin Spice” so I made a chile with pumpkin.

 

1 lb. ground chuck

 1 15.5 oz can black beans

 1 15.5 oz can chili beans

 1 15.5 oz can roasted diced tomatoes

 1 12 oz bottle V-8 juice

1 8 oz can tomato sauce

 2 cups water

 1 large white onion diced

 ¼ red bell pepper diced

 ¼ green bell pepper diced

 Fresh cilantro (about 1/8 cup)

 1 tbs. garlic powder

 2 tsp sugar

 2 tbs.  Cajun seasoning or seasoned salt

 1/8 cup hot sauce

1 tbs. cumin

1 tsp. cayenne pepper

1 tsp salt and then season to taste

100_3018.JPG

Browned the meat then in went the veggies

100_3019.JPG

Simmered for 5 minutes then dumped in the tomatoes and the “Pumpkin”.

100_3021.JPG

Dumped in the beans and brought it to a low boil then backed it to a simmer for a few hours

Adjusted the salt and made a bowl, this don’t look bad for pumpkin! I had to have a test bowl.

Topped with cheese, cilantro, green onions, sour cream and pickled jalapenos with a Chicharróne for some crunch.

On the pit to burn that Jerk over direct heat then moved them over and grilled pineapple and mango for the sauce with a little more jerk seasoning.

#1587824 Decorative vs. Utilitarian cutting board

Posted by Rajun Gardener on 16 October 2018 - 04:56 PM

My favorite board is a 14" Neoflam microban, it's non skid due to the rubber ends and it cuts nice without dulling my blades. I have an older one, it has a smooth and channeled side.

Posted by Rajun Gardener on 16 October 2018 - 11:13 AM

I have 2 large and 2 small ones, all plastic. They go in the dishwasher then into the cabinet. I don't see the need to have a nice cutting board without cuts in it to show off. If you have it then use it.

 

Me: Nice cutting board, is it new or you just can't cook?

 

No I cook and use it some.

 

Me: Why do you leave it in the open to collect dust and let flies shit on it?

 

:rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:

I'm all in so I'm 2nd by default.

 

I'm sure it'll be like the wing ding thing, after you post what you're making/cooked they show in the last few hours after sizing up the competition.
