In Topic: What was the last spicy meal you cooked?

This was not a meal, but I didn't care to spend time to look for another thread. And yeah, I know you don't all like brussels sprouts, but for those who do...


Start with some chopped-up bacon that's a bit undercooked. If you didn't have some set aside from another meal, drain the pan of the bacon grease (but no need to entirely clean it.) Add some butter and sliced brussels sprouts. (You could use small whole ones.) Cook on medium-high for a little bit, until the sprouts start to show signs of softening. Add the chopped bacon and your choice of craisins/dried blueberries/dried cherries, along with some hot pepper powder and turmeric. Cook and stir occasionally until the sprouts are fully cooked. 


Simple and tasty, for those who like brussels sprouts.  :dance:

Braised a small country pork rib after cutting it where scored. Browned the pieces in olive oil. While browning, the following got blended together in a bowl: rice wine vinegar, fish sauce, sesame oil, honey, chicken stock, aleppo pepper flakes, ginger, sumac, mace, allspice, cilantro, cumin, cinnamon, sesame seeds, allspice, marjoram, and oregano, then also added a few kaffir lime leaves. I would have used coconut milk instead of chicken stock, but that wasn't happening tonight. Anyhow, braised the pork in all of that until tender. It was yummy.


Times like these I almost wish I'd take the time to measure stuff out, so I could repeat it and get the same results. Almost. I like off-the-cuff cooking.

I'm going to have to caution against doing this with supers, though. Whole family telling me never again and even I was coughing and spluttering after accidentally breathing in over the pan.


Thank you for reminding me why it's GREAT to be single!   :dance:   :onfire:   :woohoo:


I love candied supers and love making them!

I may not make it in on time. I just managed to shove a piece of plastic between my eyelid and my eye and it's not very happy right now. If it calms down enough for me to get my entry in, though, I'll post. Good grief...

Adding sauteed bacon, onions and jalapeno to the cooked beans.
