The Recipe Thread!

Postby CallieO on Thu Oct 20, 2016 8:02 am

Here is a thread to share food recipes! Me first:


My Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

Ingredients:

8 oz. shredded cheese (I prefer colby jack)
2 cups elbow macaroni noodles
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk
Salt
Pepper

Instructions:

Boil and strain the noodles, keeping the noodles in the strainer. In the same pot used to cook the noodles, add the butter and flour on high heat. As the butter melts, stir it into the flour. Slowly add the milk. The flour, butter, and milk will combine to form a yellow, semi-solid thickening agent called a roux. Continue to slowly add milk to the roux. Eventually, the amount of milk will overtake the solid elements, and become a white sauce.

Upon adding the last of the milk, add the shredded cheese, stir vigorously, and add salt and pepper to taste. Add the noodles, stir vigorously, and serve. Serves four.

Bona fide Texas style Chili
(4 generations of Texans worked on this recipe)
Two cans of beans (type varies by meat)
1 1/2- 2 lbs. meat, cubed (see below)
One half of an onion, finely minced
(Also you can add fresh chopped cubanos, jalapenos or bell peppers, depending on personal taste and heat desired)
-
One can tomato paste
One can tomato sauce
One half can, green chiles (small can)
OR
One can tomato paste
One can ro-tel tomatos with chiles
-
As to the meat and kind of beans, pork is best with light red kidney or pink beans, chicken is best with white beans or pinto beans, and venison or game meat (wild caught) is best with dark red kidney or black beans. You can experiment, of course, but these pairing are bona fide tried and true..

The first step is to prepare your meat. Brown and season the meat, put it in a crock pot along with the tomato sauce/paste and some of the liquid from the can of beans. (This acts as a natural thickener though it will still not be thick, see below)
Let that cook for about an hour. Then add the beans, fresh peppers and onions, let the flavors marry for about half an hour, stirring every so often..

Now comes the seasonings!

Garlic powder
Black pepper (pinch)
White pepper (pinch)
Mild chili powder
Oregano
Cilantro (small pinch)
comino powder (it has an english name, but I dont remember it. Ill edit it in later)
If you want it spicier, may I suggest:
Ground chipolte powder
cayenne
Crushed red pepper
To whatever heat is desired. Stir completely mixing the spices as well as possible. Now, let that slow cook for about another two to three hours, on a low heat. Serves best with cornbread, though thats also optional.
An hour or so before finish, add three pinches of flour, stirring until any lumps are forked out.. this thickens it a bit and gives the chili body. If you cannot use flour, try a few pinched of corn starch and if you cannot use that, try a pinch or two or arrowroot powder.
Personal reccomendation:

ive tried every configuration there is.. my personal favorite is pork chili with light red kidney beans, using Ro-tel and going very easy in the spices. Its not a spicy chili at all, but has alot of flavor..also, I like black bean and beef (thats not in the list but it is workable) using the tomato paste, tomato sauce, and cubano peppers. I sauteed the peppers with the meat and onions, and that was one of the best batches I ever made. Though chicken, pork, beef, lamb, goat, deer, turkey or any kind of meat will work, one must try each out and tune the recipe as suited to the meat.

This is a nice idea for recipes. That chili sounds good, and the perfect weather for both recipes.
I have been looking for one for potato pancakes, but everything I have tried from online has been a big flop.

Anyone have a recipe?

My Cranberry Sauce Recipe!

8 oz. fresh or frozen cranberries

Potato pancakes? Ugh! But to each their own, just cause I dont like em doesnt mean theyre bad. Honestly! Thats not what I mean..
now, to define WHAT Im talking about, its where you take powdered potatoes, and make a batter and fry em like a pancake, they literally look like pancakes; however, people hash brown potatoes, add eggs and someing else, and fry that and call it by the same name. The former sucks, the latter.. not so bad! I wish I knew how to make the latter but I rely on my wife for that, like she relies on me to make good chili and such. (Btw.. we also tag team chicken enchiladas.. if my wife will give it up Ill post the recipe)
So, if you find a recipe for the hash browned, egg infused recipe, Id love to have a copy. If its that powdered potatoes thing ya can keep it. (Made dad made me eat ose as a kid.. I cant stand the thought let alone the sight..)
I know. What a weird post! But what did you expect of the fourth Warner. ;)

Thank so much Akaton we will try it this weekend and see if its a winner. I noticed baking powder was in your recipe and the one I tried didn't have it. Crosses fingers.

Deadpool they are good if crispy on the outside with sour cream on top.

Destruction of all that is Holy (IE Wades uber-nacho casserole)
In a glass casserole dish:
Start with a base of corn chips or tortilla chips (I use plain doritos or chili cheese fritos, sometimes both in different layers)
Add! Cheese, then a layer of cooked taco meat (see below)
Then add A layer of homemade texas chili (see above or subsitute your favorite canned chili)
Then Add a layer of black olives, if desired, chopped onions, if desired, chopped garlic, if desired. If you so desire all of the above, mix them before hand and let them sit in the refrigerator for 20 minutes before adding to the layers.

Try to make the layers thin but not too thin, and repeat until you are about a half inch from The top pf the dish.
Bake this monster at 300 degrees for about ten minutes or until heated completely through (a candy or meat thermometer works good for this.)

Once finished, top with a light layer of cheese and crushed blue corn chips. Best served hot, but tasty even cold!


TACO MEAT
---
1/2 lb ground beef, ground chuck, or if you wanna be fancypants, ground round
1 packet of taco seasoning
Spices (see below)

Prepare the taco meat according to the directions on the seasoning packet; to that you can add (optional):
2 pinches black pepper
4 pinches cumin (comino)
1 pinch basil
2 pinches salt (sea salt is good, i use smoked sea salt but any kind will do.)
1 pinch chipolte powder
1 pinch dried ground jalapeno peppar
1 pinch mild chili pepper powder
1 pinch cayenne

Turn the meat to a low temperature before addig the last spices, which are best mixed before adding for a uniform mixing into the meat. Mix it slow! Trust me it matters.

White Castle Slider Copycat Recipe

Postby CallieO on Fri Apr 13, 2018 9:09 pm

Ingredients:

1 lb. hamburger meat
2/3 cup of onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
1 package dinner rolls or slider rolls
Nonstick spray
Cheddar cheese (either sliced or shredded)

You'll also need a 13x9 baking pan and a drink straw.

Mix hamburger in bowl with salt, pepper, bread crumbs, and eggs.
Thoroughly mix meat.
Spray 13x9 baking pan.
Finely chop onion and spread evenly over baking pan.
Spoon portions of hamburger on top of onions. Evenly spoon meat around top of onions to cover entire pan.
With a straw, poke holes close and evenly over all the meat. This allows onion juice to rise through the meat.

Place in pre-heated oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. Remove to add cheese if you want it.
Place back in oven until cheese is melted, about 1-2 minutes.
Remove and cut into squares the size of your rolls.
