grille time 2019

Ahh… the warm weather approaches, and after some yard work it’s time to light up the grille under the shadow of an umbrella.. actually the second time I’ve started the charcoal this season.

Some dough that’s been fermenting, this batch with some dark spent grain barley adorns the all purpose flour. a very wet mixture, some corn flour made it more manageable.  simply pressed into rounds, then off loaded to a wooden cutting board. decided to throw on a cast iron grille over the glowing hot embers. slightly at a tilt allowing one end to be hotter than the other for some temperature differential.

Hmmm….. some roasted grilled veggies would go good on the flatbread, mainly a bunch of broccoli, with the usual onion and garlic, green onion and celery. a spot of ginger, grated turmeric, salt  and freshly ground quad blend of peppercorns.  drizzle on some oil, toss and ready for the grille pan.

After the flatbread is grilled with the requisite char on some pieces, the perforated grill pan is placed on the hot cast iron surface.

Flatbread was thick and soft but with a flavor similaer to a pumpernickel bread.

ready to go with the veggies, start off with some bacon pieces to fat render for non stickiness.

once a slight char is attained, drizzled on some chicken broth and cover about ten minutes depending how limp you like the veggies.

Toss from time to time… MMMMM bacon bits !

Now your cover becomes a warm bowl to serve the veggies.

served over the flatbread with a porter style brew…. good close for the labor of yard work.

shrimp stir fry

A few ingredients for a meal, frozen shrimp available and some veggies with noodles from a soup kit, less the seasoning package. You can get an idea of cooking times from the time date stamps on the pictures.

Sambal

It’s popular now so you buy it by the bottle at the market, but I didn’t have any and wanted a more custom flavor and ingredients for an upcoming recipe. I recently bought some spicy tamarind paste which would have sufficed for the recipe but none the less wanted to cook up my own Sambal.

dried chili, plain and smoked, red onion,garlic, turmeric, scotch bonnet pepper,lemon grass,lime, galangal root,shrimp paste,ginger root,brown sugar.

The basic recipe calls for a paste made and then fried, and other ingredients added with some further cooking. Chilies are an essential element both fresh and dried. I had some scotch bonnet peppers frozen, some  dried chilies, but some were smoked  and would make a dark spicy sambal.

Processing the paste, it was first a bit thick but added some water that the chilies soaked in to thin and blend it further.

The Sambal paste is put in jar and ready for use.

Braised boneless pork ribs with barley and mung beans

A tasty meal, brown the pork ribs throughly in oil, add sliced white onion, grated turmeric root, several small fresh  tomato and ground pepper(s) a pinch of curry  spices. Also added some oregano, and thyme.

When everything is fragrant, and the onion wilted, add hot stock to the pan, simmer covered. Add additional hot stock during the process if necessary. Just before the pork is tender, again,  bring up the level of the liquid, add the barley and mung bean (a dried packaged mix), cover simmer 10 minutes, move from the flame, keep covered for about 10 more minutes. Serve. The barley tender, the mung bean firm.

What was left in the pan after serving………
