I’ve not been in our kitchen since nov twenty! The day I fell and broke my arm. Thank heavens I have Yvonne to take care of me!I still don't need any food, the fridge still has a lot. I like to cook, so I'm thinking about making some bread and rolls. I don't remember the last time I went this long without cooking. It doesn't feel right.
I have never heard of using red food coloring in barbecued pork. Hmmm.
The idea of using so much food colouring to get that shiny glowing red look I see on bbq'd pork in Chinese bbq shops where I live just wasn't appealing to me.
The recipes I looked at ranged from "a few drops" for a pork loin to 2 Tbsps for a 4 lb pork shoulder. I did make the pork loin, in the oven and it tasted good, had some shininess from the hoisin and ketchup, but definitely didn't have the brighter red look on the outside. I did give it a few minutes under the broiler to get a bit of charring, one of my favourite parts of bbq'd pork (char siu).
I used this recipe
Chinese BBQ Pork (Char Siu)
Next time I'm going to try this version as I have good access to Asian grocery stores
Sweet and Sticky Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork)
Sometimes, when making good food, you have to take one for the team. LOL
I’m a meatloaf lover. Have you tried putting boiled eggs in the middle of the loaf?A big pineapple banana smoothie for breakfast. Yesterday I found a bag of frozen peaches in the freezer, well past their pkg date, looked terrible, blended up fine for a banana peach smoothie.
Today is a meatloaf, a huge size, but DH will make plenty sandwiches for lunch. We are trying to get away from packaged lunch meats, I've lost my taste for them completely, DH is becoming dissatisfied with the quality no matter what the brand.
This is a most recent favorite recipe, Minus the red pepper flakes. I don't bake it in a loaf pan but on a flat pan.
Consistently good results.
It’s not difficult at all. And so many varieties.I forgot I had a Chiropractor appointment this evening. So no time to grill the brats, so I just put them in a frying pan, good enough, but I like firing up the charcoal when I have time.
Meatloaf sounds great. I haven’t had that for awhile. I’ve never made it, my wife always does. Maybe I’ll plan on that for later in the week, or even make it myself, doesn’t seem too hard.
We never had that problem when I was growing up. Us kids would have eat the legs off the dining room table if mom hadn’t managed to keep enough food on it! It was more a matter of wolf it down before my brothers did. Anything containing meat was prized!I must be the only person in the world who doesn't like meatloaf. My sister loved it, so Mom made it often. I had to sit there until I cleaned my plate. Meatloaf just kept growing in my mouth, so I would sit for hours, crying. I just couldn't swallow it. Haven't eaten it since I've been grown.
