Seared Salmon and Gnocchi

Thursday, April 18, 2024, 07:38 PM

I roasted gnocchi in the air fryer for the kids.

Crispy Seared Salmon with "Herbs de Poblanos" from Los Poblanos. A little weird but it actually worked pretty well!

Key Lime Pie Rice Krispie Treats

Friday, April 12, 2024, 05:54 PM

I made Key Lime Pie Rice Krispie Treats [Woochiens] for a party. My dad had made them earlier in the week and I decided to try to recipe.

It was (way!) too long ago to recall details but I seem to recall adding a bit more butter. I also added some salt but I don't recall how much.

The chocolate on top failed miserably. I even tried added more coconut oil to no avail. I would skip that part for sure next time. But even then, I didn't love them. They had the lime flavor but it was subtle.

Chopped Cheese Steak (x2)

This is actually two different days.

A repeat of Chopped Cheese Steak with the noted way to brown the beef.

NY Strip Steak

Sunday, April 07, 2024, 07:22 PM

I tried making a steak directly on the grill as opposed to souse vide or reverse sear.

I salted the steak a few hours earlier and then took it out of the fridge about 45 min before grilling. I used a probe thermometer and cooked it flipping about every min until it was 130°F.

It was very good! I think that could be because I was certain this was USDA Prime (though from Walmart for whatever that’s worth).

I grilled it at home then wrapped it in foil and let it rest while I went to Emily’s to feed the cats. I cut and ate it there.

Chopped Cheese Steak

Saturday, April 06, 2024, 06:35 PM

I made something that is a hybrid of a "Chopped Cheese" and a "Cheese Steak". I've also seen these called "Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes", though that usually also is done on a bun.

I sautéed onion in [too much] oil...and probably a bit too long. I then pressed beef roughly like I was making smash burger. Not very hard but enough. Flipped it, then chopped it up. This was just to get some crusty bits. I then mixed in cheddar cheese.

Wish I used less oil and/or drained it. It was 90/10 mix but still a bit oily. It was, however, very good!

Important Addition

I noted it above but I think pressing into the pan is key to the flavor and matching a cheese steak. It is also my new favorite way to brown beef. You put the beef in the pan and press it down like a smash burger to cover as much as possible. As it cooks you can cut it into bits to make easier to flip. Flip it, let it cook a bit more, then chop with a sharp spatula! A lot more flavor and cooks faster.

Balsamic Butter Chicken Bites and Jalapeño Broccoli

Monday, April 01, 2024, 07:01 PM

I made Balsamic Butter Chicken Bites [Matthew Francis]. It was pretty good but didn't have the same crispiness or stickiness as in the video. It was also maybe just a tad too buttery (even though I think I went light).

Jalapeno Broccoli

I kind of mix sautéed and steamed broccoli and then I made sauce from Peruvian Chicken. For the sauce, I swapped proportion of mayo and sour cream but also used (full-fat) greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I figured I wasn't going to heat it much so I wasn't worried about curdling.

I mixed it with the broccoli off heat. It was pretty good. A bit thin but I liked it.
