A cold front rolled in this morning so I went with an old fashion vegetable soup for supper. I used oxtails and chuck steak with all the normal veggies and it came out great but tomorrow it should be better.

Yea that's on your end. Staying out of hot button topics might help.

That's odd, I havent seen any political ads on my end. I wonder if the advertising doesn't follow your tracking cookies and pop up ads based on your browsing history. I also have my browser set to delete cookies every time I close it. So mostly amazon adds.

 

     I bet you're right. All I ever get are ads for Wal Mart brand gin and Steve Martin penis cream.

I haven't had any impeach Trump ads either, I know it will advertise stuff related to words on the thread you are looking at sometimes too

There are definitely some rocoto arequipeño pods amongst all of those pods. I grew at least 10 different Pubescens varieties last year, and that is a mix of a bunch of different cultivars.

Here is a pic of some Pubescens I picked from my garden this afternoon. The larger red rocotos on the right side of the pile of Pubes, that kind of look like tomatoes, are rocoto arequipeños.

#1500486 Green chile shrimp tacos....with Bhutlah

Posted by OoNickoC on Today, 05:23 PM

Im a lightweight so i only used 1/4 giant red bhultah (shout out to cmpman1974 for the MONSTER pod).

 

Just a basic dish with:

 

3 tbsp cilantro

two minced garlic cloves

Serano peppers (4 or so for flavor, the ones here are rather huge.....5-6 may be necesarry for that true flavor)

1/4 red bhutlah (or more for you mad people)

3 tbsp oil of any sort

1 bell pepper for more crunchy substance, sliced thin

1/2 large white onion or 2 small

one half lime (to be squeezed into dish at the very end, just abit, not the normal amount for green chili sautee)

tortillas

the kicker....unagi sauce

 

 

I thought of posting this post cooking so I only have a couple pics but here is my process!

 

Peel/DE-vien shrimps (small shrimp work best here, raw )

Slice bell to 3/8th strips

Crush/Mince garlic and Bhutlah

cut onion into rings then half those

dice the seranos

 

 

Pre heat oil and sear the shrimp real fast to get a bit of blackening, then toss in the veggies.

 

I put the tortillas in the oven and temp/time depends on how far out the main pan is!

 

I keep it on med-high until i see a blackening of the veggies, then I hit it with a bit of water so I can simmer it down to a paste or at least a canned salsa viscosity...add lime.

 

Once it simmers down to the non watery level (where you can tilt the pan and movement to the lower side is nice and slow) I hit it with about two tablespoons of Unagi sauce (the eel sauce they use on sushi) and sir..let simmer for another min.

 

Pull the tortillas if they are spotting brown and hook them up with the "shrimp chilie saute" and your favorite taco fixings....boom. I am sure this falls squarely into the same method many use but thats my take on it...hope someone enjoys it!

#1500489 First ever jerky attempt.....

Posted by OoNickoC on Today, 05:39 PM

Apparently jerky is somewhat foolproof as I can honestly say that this is hands down the top 5 jerky slabs I ahve ever tasted....and I cheated lol.

 

I decided too do it quick and dirty with a stor bought sauce but it was the inaugural run of my first dehydrator.

I Used bottom round (2.27 lbs) in a generic ebay dehydrator.

 

I tested the dehydrator after reading warnings on temps and sure enough my unit only gets to about 150....no bueno i think right?

 

I marinated the sliced beef in island pineapple teriyaki with about 6 or so Orange Thia SSE peppers minced VERY fine for a good spread, that sat overnight in the fridge.

 

I precooked the meat to about 155-165 ish then tossed in the dehydrator and they dried for around 5 hours with me rotating trays a couple times. The pic is about an hour before finished when rotating, everything seen is being metabolized as I type this with a smile on my face.

 

End result.....omg......I will never eat store bought again if I can help it.....wow! :cheers:

#1500359 Mills And Dehydrators

Posted by Ares Schizas on Yesterday, 11:44 PM

Mills And Dehydrators; I have neither.

I need the best budget-friendly Dehydrator and a good old-school manual mill(or is it grinder?) that can turn dehydrated peppers into fine powder—if it can also do coffee even better.
(I personally need a manual mill because milling peppers at 03:00 AM with an electric machine will most likely result in me getting evicted ;P )

I live in Greece, so anything from outside the EU will not work for me, but since we are in a forum and the information might help many others, I hope that everyone will jump in and share advice and/or show their setup.

Hi all,
