Hydroponic update

Here are the results of the DWC outside hydroponic tomato setup.

Recent hot weather has the DWC reservoir required at least topping off  daily.

Meatballs

Having some beef chuck, some meatballs would be good to have available for future recipes.

Grind  the beef if not already done, prep the ingredients ….

Ground beef, cinnamon, ground cloves, cardamom, parsley and ginger.  (The parsley was missed ! I have fresh parsley outside that was not included.)

I let the mixer do the work…

I drew a 2 inch guide on parchment when forming the meatballs.


Fried instead of boiled as the recipe suggest.

Beefy taste with a slight background of spice.

One of the uses of the meatballs is in a soup, just some stock, boiled fresh noodles frozen from a previous batch, mushrooms and green onions, possibly a dash of soy sauce, herbs and seasonings. I would usually make the meatballs smaller , but followed the recipe. In this application, the meatballs were quartered.

Memorial Day Cheeseburger 

Photos from Memorial Day, other than memorial events, the traditional day to open a swimming pool, celebrate the beginning of summer, or grille.

Not having really any menu plans I just grilled the burgers quick, just by placing them on a grate over the charcoal starter for a quick grille.

BiangBiang noodles with beef and green onion

Here is a another meal kit, this one from the Chinese market.

A spicy hot soup with noodles, I added some shaved beef and green onion.

Prepared only half of the package.

The sauces are packaged separetly so it’s possible to make half portion of the contents.

Ingredient contents and cooking instruction.

I have some beef chuck available, slightly frozen, sliced to very thin strips, enough for a bowl of soup.

The sliced beef.

Add the contents of the packages to a bowl.

Add the beef and green onions…. Ginger for good luck.!

As per instructions, add the boiling water.

As the soup steeps, prepare the noodles, very wide for  an oriental soup.


With a slotted spoon, or strainer , add the noodles to the soup bowl.


Very rich soup, not super hot but plenty of spice and depth of flavour. There is a taste similar to a concentrated tomato flavour , but no tomato in the ingredients. The sauce packets could be re-purposed to a marinade for a bbq!.

A very rich enjoyable soup.

green peppers stuffed with broccoli and rice.

Usually stuffed peppers contain some sort of meat, this time a cheesy rice with broccoli filling was used.

Other stuffed pepper recipes:

https://pmetro.wordpress.com/2013/04/19/stuffed-peppers-2/

Prep the broccoli (and garlic ! of course)

I chose to steam instead of saute.

I usually zap the peppers in the microwave a bit to soften them up.

cut off the top and remove the seeds and ribs (but you knew that!)

as you would prepare some rice, use stock instead water for a kick of flavor.

Prepare a bechamel sauce (butter and flour with milk or for a rich sauce evaporated milk), seasoned as you would prefer.

add the broccoli mixture to the sauce.

mix in the rice

Add some grated cheese, in this case Parmesan to complete the stuffing.

in a baking dish big enough for the peppers, fill the peppers carefully and put them in the dish.

need some bread crumbs ? I chopped up some pretzels for the topping

Into the oven they go ….

run up the broiler after the peppers are hot and bubbly to get the brown crunchy top.
