Wow, there have been some great pictures posted in this thread.  [eek]

Lately I have been trying recipes that I have seen on the YouTube channel “Almazan Kitchen”.  Has anyone else here watched their videos? The videos are done by two guys in Serbia , and their particular slant on cooking is everything is done outside, either in an outdoor kitchen or out in the woods by a stream.  So far, everything I have tried has been quite tasty and a lot of fun to try.

I didn't immediately recognize the YouTube channel by name, but once I went to YouTube I remembered watching one of their videos before.  I think he was making a steak over an open fire or something.

I made some bbq chicken leg quarters for the 4th of July.  I also made brats and more pork chops and grilled corn.  I finally got to try the Firecracker sausages.  They're a limited edition product so I have literally been waiting a whole year to try them.  Sadly, I was disappointed with them.  I prefer the regular brats or  Beer 'n Brats.











Last night we made chicken biryani.

Wow...that's a lot of ingredients.  [smile]   It reminds me of a typical Paul Prudhomme recipe. My favorite is his Jalapeño Pie.  [not worthy]

This looks delicious.  [big grin]

Are you referring to all of the spices required for a typical biryani?  We cheated and bought a jar of biryani paste :).  The dish was actually pretty easy since we used the premade paste and the pressure cooker.  A lot easier than the chicken kabsa.

I've never heard of jalapeno pie.  Is it more or less an omelette or maybe more like a frittata?

This past weekend we bought a big sub primal cut of top loin from Costco.  Last time we got ribeye so this time we went back to my favorite, the NY strip steak.  I cut it up into individual steaks - we got 11 steaks.  I vacuum seal them and freeze them to cook sous vide directly from the freezer.  I preseasoned 8 of the steaks with salt and pepper and left 3 plain.  This amount of steaks will usually last us about 6 months.









Last night we made beef lo mein and had some of the frozen hot and sour soup that we recently made.  I used the the leftover end cut of the top loin for the beef.  We tried using the cooked noodles this time.  They seem to be identical to the regular lo mein noodles, the only difference being that they don't need to be boiled first.  The noodles were a little starchy so I think the regular lo mein noodles are better.

That sounds pretty good.  Do you have the rest of the cooking instructions?

Last night we made italian sausage, peppers, and onions with spaghetti and Caesar salad.  The dish was almost like a sausage cacciatore.

Last night was Steve Raichlen's rum soaked smoked salmon for my wife's pasta and her bagel.  Beef short ribs are currently enjoying their sous vide spa treatment at 146 degrees for 48 plus hours.  (I put them in late and their 48 hr deadline will be while I am working - thus the plus.)

I know - no images - it didn't happen.

@GoingMyWay, If I may make a suggestion, try the hot Italian sausage from the Italian Store in Arlington (3123 Lee Hwy) or from Wegman's.  Both leave the Johnsonville sausage in the dust.   [smile]

Ooh we do love getting Italian subs from the Italian Store!  It's just we're lazy and a little far away.  We have been meaning to go back recently.  I'll have to remember to try their hot Italian sausage.

We definitely go to Wegman's more frequently.  In fact we were just there on Saturday picking up some cheese and charcuterie meats.

Thanks for the recommendation!

Interesting...when I cook sausage, peppers & onions, I always serve it on a toasted Coney bun, it's messy but that's part of the attraction. [big grin]

You are so bad - in a good way!  Toasted buns can be so essential to culinary nirvana, or can be so painful on Mondays after visiting the beach on Sunday and falling asleep. [big grin]

Making the dish did seem wrong on several levels.  First cutting the sausage up sorta felt like "breaking the law" and second the sausage is often served on a roll as a sandwich.

Tonight I made French onion soup and sockeye salmon with green beans and pearled couscous.  We kinda break the law by using provolone cheese instead of swiss cheese.

Today's breakfast:
A mixed berry smoothie with a capful of Nielsen-Massey vanilla and 3 or 4 mint leaves. That removes all of the tartness of the different berries.

That seems too healthy!  Did you put any yogurt in there or is it all berries?

Blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, yogurt, half of a lonely avocado, cranberry juice, a banana, mint & vanilla...nummy. [smile]

I like them because they stick to my ribs and I don't feel the need to snack during the day.

Thursday we had Hoisin Shrimp which I've previously discussed. Everything gets baked in the oven, vegetables & mushies for 15 minutes and the shrimp for 4 minutes. It's all served over rice noodles with some Hoisin sauce on the side.

Here's a photo of the dish before plating and a photo of some fresh Thai basil from the garden that will be used for garnish.
