Re: What Did You Cook Part 9 - Dec 2013

Still need a good roasting or chipping sput...there is no hope for Pigfood Nadines!

Maybe your best bet is a Farmers Market. To my mind Russet Burbanks are the best for chipping, and pretty good for roasting.

Re: Copycat KFC

I made this for my nephews a few months ago, and they thought it was far superior to KFC. No pressure cooker required :D

Re: Bo La Lot (Vietnamese grilled beef with lemongrass)

They look great. The leaves are pretty expensive admittedly. I think they were about $45 per kilo.

Pork loin on the Kettle

I am going to roast a 2.5kg pork loin on the Weber kettle on Saturday, and I would love some advice.

I want to bring the internal temperature to 145f (62.8c) I am th...

Re: Xianjiang Lamb Kebab (Yang Rou Chuan)

Sorry Mick, my bad. Two hours is the optimal marinating time with that much salt. I did say reduce the salt if you think it's too much. It was pretty salty even with two hours marinating time. I will be interested to see how the revised recipe goes.

Re: Xianjiang Lamb Kebab (Yang Rou Chuan)

I think shoulder is definitely the best cut, as you want a bit of fat for flavour and to keep the meat moist. Cut down on the chilli if you want, it won't affect the flavour to much. As Bear said, use the yoghurt for dipping. Serve with plenty of cold beer :D

Re: Bo La Lot (Vietnamese grilled beef with lemongrass)

Oh yeah, soak the betel leaves in warm water for 5 minutes, as they are much easier to roll when moist.

Re: Bo La Lot (Vietnamese grilled beef with lemongrass)

I should add that I cooked these on an electric hotplate at our local park, for our monthly dog walkers bbq. They would have been much better over charcoal.

Re: Bo La Lot (Vietnamese grilled beef with lemongrass)

Unfortunately no photo's. I rely on my wife to do that, as I can never be bothered to take shots. (to busy cooking or eating). Unfortunately she left the iPhone home on that particular day.
