Pot Roast?

No Kewpie here either.  Pot Roast on top of a Ribeye would be Overkill on the meat end, and besides Pot Roast just can't match up to a Prime Ribeye.

THINK Man!  This is fucking ALASKA.  What can you plate up from Alaska that can stand up to a Grass Fed Ribeye Steak and call itself Equal?

A good DOOMER would be using their preps!! Like SPAM and beans. Fried SPAM and eggs might be more appetizing though.
Enjoy that Ribeye.

Spam? No wonder you went vegetarian.

Living on Spam might be surviving, but it isn't living.

I saw Spamalot on Broadway. 1st Row. Not as good as Avenue Q.

Another  :emthdown:  I will give you another BIG Hint, because I want to get this mystery guessing game over with and start publishing some of the Vids.  You had it while you were visiting with me down in Soldotna before we went Whale Watching.  Not a land animal.

Oh, salmon. That was about the best Salmon I ever had. But the view of the marina was epic. Nice table.

That was really good Salmon, but Surly already guessed Salmon.  I guess I just have to reveal the TRUTH.

There CAN BE ONLY ONE thing local to Alaska that can stand side by side with a Prime Grain Fed Ribeye Steak and call itself EQUAL.

I was going to just steam it, but this sucker is just too gorgeous for such a low class prep.  Next guessing game is how I will cook it.  :icon_sunny:

For now, here my Knife Collection goes to work.  Ever see a cook whack out a Crab Leg with a hatchet?  lol.  In super-slo-mo also!  ;D

🥘 The Cooking Zone GRAND OPENING
« Reply #21 on: January 31, 2019, 07:01:15 AM »

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/JnkPgDdV5zY" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/JnkPgDdV5zY</a>


In honor of the Diner 7th Anniversary, I created a new Diner Product, a Reddit Sub called the Cooking Zone.  r/Meatosaurus was too limiting, besides the fact it is a turn-off to the Vegans.  Also, I was just adding vids of other foodies who have their own Utoob channels.  I wanted a Sub to publish my own recipes and techniques.  I have enough vids now to get it started.  It's still evolving and the production  values on my vids are improving.

Besides the cooking it also features videos for cooking utensils, namely KNIVES!  :icon_sunny:  Also appropriate are vids on Permaculture food production, Gardens, Hunting & Fishing, Food Preservation methods, etc.

I named it the Cooking Zone because I learned over time that having "Doom" or "Collapse" in the title of your website is a turn-off to women.  I am downplaying the Collapse end of this over there in the effort to draw in more of the female gender.

The actual Grand Opening won't be until Next Sunday when the 12 Days of Diner Anniversary begins.  I am giving the regular Diner advanced preview time to come and join me in the Sub and help fill it out some more with Commentary & Discussion.  Let's talk FOOD!  Let's talk KNIVES!  Lets talk GARDENING!

Be there or Be square!

🥘 The Cooking Zone: Cooking and Canning Liver Pate
« Reply #22 on: February 02, 2019, 04:44:41 PM »
Today I am beginning the process of Cooking & Canning Liver Pate, a favorite appetizer/breakfast item I used to buy at the Jewish Deli near my Hospital after the Lobster Shift when I was a Clinical Chemist.

I'm doing this one for a few reasons.  First, I needed a break from the main meals of Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner for the Diner 7th Anniversary meals.

More motivating than that though were some accusations made here inside the Diner that I am not a "Doer", just a Big Talker, and that if I actually did do any canning I would end up dying of Botulism, which is just a load of crap.  Jesus H. Christ, I was a fucking Biochemist!  I can't can food?  WTF?  I had to prepare glassware all the time for experiments and have them squeaky clean for the job.  This is easy stuff in comparison.

RE can cut and paste a good pantry, but he'd probably die of botulism if he tried to eat anything he actually canned himself.

I'm doing a relatively hard job (for the kitchen) of canning a combination of Butter, Cream Cheese, Chicken Livers & Onions for this demonstration.  Lotta opportunities for microbes to feast on there!

Anyhow, here's the first installment on ingredients and methods.  Hope you enjoy the series.  We'll know in 6 months if I die of Botulism or not.  If I actually live for 6 more months anyhow. LOL.

🥘 The Cooking Zone: The Liver Pate gets Blast from the Past addition
« Reply #23 on: February 03, 2019, 09:51:48 AM »
In my first video on cooking and canning Liver Pate, I showed the main ingredients I will be using to make this scrumptious pate.  But then I decided I should spice it up and fill it out some more.  Since I am already taking the time to can this concoction, I might as well do a big batch, right?  I also need to clear out my Freezer, which is stuffed to the gills.  I recalled that somewhere in that collection of Frozen Meat I still had some Hot Louisiana Sausage made by the Alaska Sausage & Seafood Company here on the Last Great  Frontier.  This also has the advantage of giving it a distinctive Alaska taste!  It's still Kosher also, because the sausage is beef sausage, not pig sausage, so Jewish Delis could sell it!  :icon_sunny:

It took some digging through the Freezer, but I FOUND it!  :o  The remarkable thing here is this package of Sausage was one of the first Food Preps I bought in...get this...2008!  LOL.  It's over a DECADE old!  Here is the PROOF.  Check out the Sell By Date on the package:

click the pics to enlarge
Sausage 1
Sausage 1
 
Sausage 2
Sausage 2

July 7, 2008!  LOL.

This sausage is pre-cooked and professionally vacuum sealed, and I am quite sure it is still good.  But if this isn't a real good test of my canning abilities, I don't know what is.

Today if I can get my energy level back up after the battle with the Grim Reper this morning, I move onto the next step of cooking up the livers and preparing everything to go in the food processor before canning.

I'll have more than one canning job to do now, probably 3 or 4.  I will date them and crack open one at a time over 6 month intervals.  Maybe I will get lucky and one of these cans of Pate will kill me from Botulism.  :icon_sunny:

Anybody that DOESN'T like Liver Pate has a serious Palate Problem, IMHO.

🥘 The Cooking Zone: A NEW Intro!
« Reply #28 on: February 11, 2019, 06:02:49 AM »
In the latest Intro, the Big Bowl represents the Earth and the Small Bowl is the Moon, and the SUN is shining off camera.  :icon_sunny:  It's only a minute long so hopefully you can take time out of your bizzy day to give me some feedback on it.

Big two days of cooking ahead, I have the Main Dishes of the Surf & Turf to do the final cook on.  It's a 4 Course Meal, with Appetizer, Soup, Salad and Main Dish.  The 4 Courseman of the Apocalypse...get it?  lol.

🥘 The Cooking Zone: The Mushroom-Internetz Troll Rant
« Reply #29 on: February 11, 2019, 04:18:04 PM »
This began as just another portion of the food prep Vids for the Diner 7th Anniversary FEAST, but morphed as it moved along into a rant against the Trolls who constantly pester me on the net, either in forums or through my email addy if they have got a hold of that.  These jerks have no reason to live.

The Steak itself should get done tonight if I have the energy left for that.  ::) It was an exhausting day with my Cripple Helper today.

Note: The Rant begins around 5:40 into the vid if you don't wanna watch a cripple cut up Mushrooms.  lol.
