Back a few years ago we had some great cooking threads, wonder if anyone has any great recipes to share with us?


Does anybody here like curry (Indian) dishes?

I have about 7 different curries from Penzey's and use them regularly. One of my favorite spices.
Most often I just soak a bunch of different beans in the crock-pot and them dump in whatever is on hand in meat and veggies.
Then I will add either noodles, rice, barley, or quinoa. Once that mix is partially cooked I taste and decide what direction to go with flavoring and spices.
Some of my favorite add-ins are.

Beer, wine, or whiskey.
The brine from pickles, banana peppers, or olives.
V-8, fruit juice, or whatever liquid I have saved in the freezer from cooked roasts or hams.

I keep a container in the freezer and add to it anything I would normally drain down the sink. When it is soup time I just pop it in the crock and see what I have. So in other words not big on recipes.

Pineapple and curry seem to go together really well. I'll have to put my English (milder) chicken (although pork or lamb would be good too) and pineaple curry on here in the near future. Served over rice with chooped peanuts sprinkled on top makes agreeat meal!

boneless skinless chicken thighs, make a rub with ginger, brown sugar, rosemary, fresh minced garlic, and minced onion, salt, pepper, rub thighs with olive oil, combine said ingredients in a bowl, and then rub on the chicken, bake at 400f for 35-40 min, serve with Jasmine rice.

As talismandave posted - get into www.penzeys.com (http://www.penzeys.com) and be hungry. Their hard copy catalogs always have decent recipes and their spices are absolutely the best.

Curry - we do everything from sweet to killer - lamb, chicken or beef or shrimp. Sharwoods chutneys.

2.5# beef rib roast. Rub in 2 tbsp of Penzey's English Prime Rib Rub. Vertical, bone down, baking pan/rack. Let warm to room temp. Smear one tbsp bacon grease over the fat side up. Pop into a 450 degree oven for 20 minutes, turn down to 350 and roast to an internal temp of 125 - 130. Remove, cover with tinfoil shiny side to roast, and let sit for 15 minutes. Mashed potatoes, brown gravy from beef drippings, peas or asparagus, cheap out and go with Pillsbury's frozen biscuits - buttermilk or grands. Decent bottle of cab sau. SHARP carving knife.

We are lucky enough to have a store here in town. If you get a chance to go into a store they have jars of everything that you can open and try. Their catalogs are a great source of cooking inspiration. I never tried their website?

At Sub's suggestion, several years back, I got myself on Pensey's mailing list and now receive their catalogues. I agree a great source of recipes!

Another thing I love is the spice mixes they make. Great for a quick dash of flavor to pre-made heat and eat or canned stuff, make great quick dips w/sour cream or cream cheese, and great for grilling burgers or steaks.
They are also a good way for a spice novice to jump in to flavorful cooking without learning what goes well with what. That is also where the catalog is helpful, they describe the spice well, tell you how to use it and give you recipes.

Just signed my wife up for Pensey's catalog.

My take on a cheese burger.

Get ground beef shape it into a patty.
Put butter in a frying pan at high heat.
Put the patty in the pan and flip every minute.
Put two pieces of garlic bread in the oven while the burger is cooking
When the burger is almost done put a slice of mozzarella on top and let it melt.
When done put it together and put some tomato sauce on top.

For a side dish i just fry up some fries and put some garlic powder on.

Sounds like some of the best food I've made...some sort of meat+ some sort of cheese+ pasta+ beer= awesome.

I know its kind of simple, but I have a buddy who hunts and has killed 4 deer this year. I have half a freezer full of venison burger, which I've made some simply banging chili. I love using venison because its a lean meat, this is actually somewhat healthy chili, it doesn't have any of that greasy taste which you associate with traditional beef chili. My recipe is a bit simple since I use the premade spice pack.

2 lbs venison, brown in a fry pan, drain what little fat there is. I usually add about 1/2 of a Kroger "Hot Chili" spice packet into the meat.

Put the browned venison into a pot, add 2 cans of diced tomatoes, 1 can of kidney beans, 1 can of pinto beans, half an onion chopped fine, half a bell pepper also chopped fine. Also add another whole packet of Kroger "Hot Chili" spice mix.

My secret with this chili is that you double the recipe listed on the spice packet, use 1/2 of the spice packet on the meat, and one whole spice packet in the soup later. Ends up that you have about 1/2 a spice packet left over, but from experience if you use both spice packets the stuff becomes too hot. I love a chili with a good heat, which is what you end up with 1.5 spice packets. 2 spice packets makes it too hot, not so hot you can't eat it, but it overpowers all the other complex flavors of the onions, beans, venison, etc.

Anyways, you bring it to a boil, cover it, and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until those onions are cooked.

Here is a simple little appetizer type thing that everyone that knows me outside the digital world seems to enjoy
First go to the grocery store and get some of that pizza dough in the deli/bakery thats ready to go.

Make sure you have 1.5 sticks of butter , garlic salt , basil , pam , cookie sheet ,mixing bowl ,parmesan cheese and some beer

OK , now grab your first beer and drink it , and perhaps shotgun a second....preheat oven to 400

Grab the dough and break off peices that would make a 1.5 inch ball of dough. Strech/roll the peice out to make a sort of hotdog shape. Then tie it in a knot.... use all your pizza dough for this , as you complete each knot place it on the cookie sheet

put the knots on the sheet in the oven . dont burn yourself , and since you didnt burn yourself you have earned another beer

Melt a stick and a half of butter , then mix in a few table spoons of garlic salt and one spoon of basil. add that garlic salt untill you get it the way you like , youll want it fairly strong, but not to scare off anymore women then you did when you mowed the lawn without a shirt.

those knots in the oven are going to want back out at around 17 minutes , just keep an eye on them around the 15 min mark and when the tops start to turn a nice medium tan they are ready for a bath

that melted butter garlic mix should be in a fairly large bowl to hold all the knots and the butter , them knots are going to be fookin hot so be careful and put them all in the bowl . Now move the knots around so they all get a nice garlic bath. Since you didnt burn yourself , get another beer. Now since all the knots are now nicely coated in buttery goodness sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on them

Find football game on televeision , grab all the rest of beer and knots in the bowl ....enjoy

edit , today I will be testing the stage 2 and 3 mod for this recipe

01-30-13, 05:36 PM
OK stage 2 and 3 work well
Instead of tieing the dough in a knot , wrap it around some mozzarella , then bak and bathe as directed earlier , have your girl enjoy stoneys balls

stage 3
Instead of mozzerealla use pepper jack cheese !!! then you and your girl can enjoy my mexican cousins balls
