King flesh retails for about $30lb right now, if you can get it. Today a customer presented to me this slab as a gratuity.
Not the deepest red i've seen but very rich, firm, smells like nothing
Special Sauce: olive oil, lemon juice, various seasonings but mostly ranch dip
Covered with crushed tortilla chips, onion, cilantro and parsley. The green garnish is moist, but gets pushed to the side after about 6 minutes so it doesn't burn up and crumble to ash on the fish.
Dry bake at 375° for around 30 minutes. I'll cut the thinner portions away that cook first and serve them up as appetizers so pop's don't starve out

Johnsonville Italian spicy sausage and bell peppers, ever had it? That's good victuals right there. I sided it with crunchy Ore-Ida onion rings instead of sourdough biscuits. Rocky?

Ok the Johnsonville spicey italian .... yum
Slice up a bunch of yellow onions and put them in a large pot. Put about a 12 pack of the cheapest beer to can find in there .... anything but milwaukees beast is fine. There is something about that stuff that stinks up the kitchen. Add your sausages and put on boil. If there isn't enough liquid just top it off with water. Splash of vinegar. Let it boil for an hour.
While your sausages are boiling cut up in inch slices ... red pepper green pepper and yellow pepper. Put those on saute in a fry pan with a half stick of butter and a good dash of black pepper as well as a little cumin.
Warm up the BB-Q ..... put your sausages on and ever 2 minutes or so give them a roll so you brown up the whole skin. When they are looking done toss em back in their bath (forgot to say keep that on the bubble warm) . Toast some potato roll buns on the grill and serve a sausage with some of the onions out of the bath and a bunch of the sauted peppers. Mustard to taste.
I like mine with some fresh sauted snap beans
clip the ends off the beans then cut in half and set aside in cold water.
brown up about a half lb of thick bacon. I like the already peppered bacon.
When the bacon is crisp set aside on paper towels but save the grease. I pour off most of the grease in a soup can and save it for another time. (actually my gas grill has caste iron grddles and if you paint it with bacon grease every time before lighting it will remain non-stick, rust free, and well seasoned forever). Anyway ... probaly 4 tablespoons of bacon grease in the fry pan and add 1/4 cup blanched slivered almonds and toast them for a bit, then add the beans. I'm a keen fan of thyme and usually sprinkle a half teaspoon of ground on top while it is cooking; fresh is better but hard to come by. Toss em around till done.
If you are looking for a starch to go along with it I like to slice yukon gold potatoes in half in slices then a couple yellow onions. I use the wifes fancy lasgna pan to set it up. Put a strip of heavy duty tin foil long ways then another side ways and put all the potatoes and onions in there. Couple pats of butter and a good sprinkle of papika. Fold the long ones together then the side ones together and make a nice packet. If it looks like it might leak just give it another wrap of foil. Put it on the grill first and cook it 20 minutes per side. I keep it away from the hottest part of the grill and then just transfer it to the top rack while I cook the sausage.
I reckon total time invested in that meal would be about 2 beers. Enjoy

That's quite a feed but what's the fate of the 12 pack of steele reserve in the end?

Wife has a bread machine and we've experimented around with making a stuffing bread.
Follow the directions for making white bread except the salt and then add ...
Let the bread maker do it's thing then when the loaf is done cool over night. Next day slice then cube the bread. Place on a cookie sheet and put in the oven on the lowest setting for about 2 hours. Store in freezer bags.
You could fiddle around with adding other things like mushrooms or chopped onions.
Could stuff a bird with it as is or add a quarter stick of butter and some chicken broth to the bread crumbs before hand, stir it around till moist. When I make it at home I add chopped celery and chopped green onions.
Maybe a little more elbow grease involved than the box stuff but in the end cheaper and tastes better, with no preservatives.

For the lack of finding brautwurst patties I took a dozen brauts and skinned them then formed into patties. Formed about 2 lbs of lean ground beef into patties. Cook all your patties on the grill with a weight on top (those things will ball up like a mini meatloaf without the weight). Light coat of butter on some wheat buns and give them a minute on the grill. Grill marks are cool! While all that is going on slice up about 3 yellow onions and with a bit of chopped garlic and some pepper saute in a skillet. Assembly is bottem bun then beffe patty then a slice of cheddar then sausage and a slice of swiss, then a slice of tomato and a couple pickle chips .... dress up the top bun with a little mustard and mayo.
Sweet corn is in season right now and I husk it and put it in a big pan of cold water with just a splash of vinegar, some sugar and some salt. Let it soak for about an hour. As soon as you get the corn on the grill put the soaking water on a boil. Keep turning the corn till the water comes up then put your nicely grilled corn back in the water and let it boil about 5 minutes. It turns out awesome!
I always start with the corn then proceed to the onions then cook the meat then brown the buns.
Sounds like a lot of work but once you get started it takes the duration of two beers.
Usually have potato salad and baked beans to go along with all that goodness.

Old World Italion Recipe, Federal Hill, Atwells Ave, Providence, Rhode Island
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 large red bell pepper, seeded, cut into half-inch strips
- 1 large green bell pepper, cut into half-inch strips
- 1 yellow onion, halved, and cut in quarter-inch slices
- 2 cloves finely minced garlic
- 1 tsp white wine vinegar
- pinch of cayenne
- salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
- 4 grilled Italian hot or sweet sausage
- 4 soft rolls, split
Add the olive oil, pepper strips, and onion to a cold, large skillet, and turn on the heat to high. When you can hear the peppers and onions sizzling, reduce the heat to medium, and sauté for 8-10 minutes, or until the peppers and onions become soft and sweet. Add the garlic, and cook for one minute, stirring. Turn off the heat and add the vinegar, cayenne, salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste.
Divide the hot pepper mixture evenly over the four rolls and grilled sausages.
Note; Do not share this serving with anyone. You made it, you deserve to eat it all.
Upon completion of this meal, burp, fart, take a nap. Upon wakening, pace around the house for approx. 30 minutes swearing to yourself that you will never, EVER participate in this glutanence thing again.
Ponder this for several days and repeat this ritual again.
Do not wait longer than 1 week .
PS. Dave, I'm still drooling over that Salmon Brother

Well, the computer panel that controls the oven conked out and no way was i calling the "emergency repair guy" on Memorial Day weekend $$$$$
But the stove still works and was against driving to KFC for our chicken and biscuits.
There's a two inch tall cookie tin with the bottom cut out elevating the Corningware pot that's functional as an improvised Dutch oven.
The biscuits will burn easily, even a notch under medium-low heat; they must be flipped every 5 minutes or so up until about 20 minutes total baking time. It gets too hot in the center

My wife likes chicken piccata I can take it or leave it, went to Food net work and got a recipe
and made it last night, I think it was better than the restaurant we go to.
2 skinless and boneless chicken breasts, butterflied and then cut in half ( I cut mine into 2" pieces )
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
All-purpose flour, for dredging
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup brined capers, rinsed
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess.
In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with 3 tablespoons olive oil. When butter and oil start to sizzle, add 2 pieces of chicken and cook for 3 minutes. When chicken is browned, flip and cook other side for 3 minutes. Remove and transfer to plate. Melt 2 more tablespoons butter and add another 2 tablespoons olive oil. When butter and oil start to sizzle, add the other 2 pieces of chicken and brown both sides in same manner. Remove pan from heat and add chicken to the plate.
Into the pan add the lemon juice, stock and capers. Return to stove and bring to boil, scraping up brown bits from the pan for extra flavor. Check for seasoning. Return all the chicken to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove chicken to platter. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter to sauce and whiskvigorously. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with parsley.
( I served the chicken over rice and made extra sauce )
