Here’s my take on quail scotch eggs. The recipe is rather simple but it does require some attention to cooking times unless you want to serve quail scotch rubber balls. I know it sounds kinda daunting deep-frying a hard-boiled egg, especially a tiny one like a quail egg but it isn’t that hard, like I said, […]
spicy ginger pork and ramen noodles.
Ok, yes, I got extremely lazy this time and chose the easy way out. Pork meat already marinaded… as in.. the marinade sits in the pack with the raw pork… roll your eyes all you want but it looked like heaven to me. I haven’t done this in at least 10 years. I remember back in […]
Before we go any further I want to warn you. I just participated in the killing of a pig. I also documented it with pictures. I will do my best to avoid excessively-graphic imagery but as you may know, the process of butchering an animal is a dramatic event so if you’re not comfortable with this kind of […]
Hot Spicy Pork Tamales | Perfect for this ridiculous SoCal heat wave.
I will admit I wasn’t the biggest fan of tamales in general until like 2 weeks ago. I had some amazing ones at the farmer’s market here in Brentwood. Usually, when I get them at other places it’s always same story… dry, boring, bland, like what’s the point of all this. I thought they were hopeless and […]
Pan seared pork chops. Cucumber and corn salad.
Another one of those recipes that almost got left behind during my transition to a self -hosted account. I took the photos weeks ago and I even uploaded them to my site but never got around to write about it which is weird.. guess was distracted by trying not to destroy my blog while making […]
Eggs, Pisto and Pork Bits!
Eggs, Pisto and Pork Bits! Yeah, this is gonna be a quick update and a quick recipe. I have finally migrated my old wordpress.com site entirely over to this new .org world. Wasn’t easy. Today I spend the day redirecting URLs, optimizing images, fixing broken links. This the the cool thing about self-hosting. You have […]
paella de pollo y cochino.
Before we get into this paella de pollo y cochino let me explain where I’ve been these last 3 weeks (I did mention it in the previous post but I still have a bit left I need to get out of my system). So 3 weeks agoI was getting ready to move my site to a […]
Boneless Pork Center Loin Cut Sous Vide 136F 6h : Mirin and Garlic Marinade 12h
Boneless Pork Center Loin Cut Sous Vide. I didn’t even want to eat this thing it looked so damn pretty. Awesome roast..well, a roast of sorts. Having to roast in the oven or on a grill is fun and I love it with all the inaccuracies involved, they still yield delicious results. In our 80F […]
Sugar and Tamari Glazed Pork Loin : Mushroom Medley : Pickled Lettuce
Let me sound like a late night infomercial for a second here. If you ever wanted to eat like royalty but still had to cook it yourself because you aren’t royalty (maybe you are, I’m not), this dinner, if you like pork, might be the answer and it takes about 15 minutes to make. When […]
Sweet and Sour Orange Glazed Pork Chops
It might seem as if meat is the only thing featured on this blog. What’s wrong with that? 🙂 no, seriously, I will make an effort to bring more vegetable centric dishes to this site. I want to write about the beautiful produce available in the region and I also want explore seafood more extensively, […]
