    Best thing I ever ate.




    I was watching a show the other day called best thing I ever ate. It got me wondering what is the best thing you have ever made? If you have the recipe please share.

    Re: Best thing I ever ate.




    I made this dish back in 2010 and tho I don't think it's the absolute BEST thing I ever ate, I enjoyed it very much...I think b/c it reminded me a lot of my mom's homecooking.

    Beef Braised w/coconut milk (adapted from Mark Bitman)

    ingredients:
    4 hot dried red chillie
    6 garlic cloves, peeled
    1 1-inch piece ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
    2 tablespoon chili powder (i left this out, didn’t have)
    Juice and zest of 4 limes or 4 tablespoons rice vinegar (or other mild vinegar)
    3 tablespoons canola oil (or corn oil okay, or olive)
    2 and 1/2 to 3 pounds beef, cut into 1-inch cubes (or thereabouts)
    4 cups coconut milk (or 2 cans plus 1 cup water)–i didn’t add the water, i forgot
    2 teaspoons curry powder
    salt to taste

    directions:
    1. Put first 5 ingreds in a food processor, process until everything is minced, into a paste like consistency.
    2. Heat oil over med-high heat in a Dutch oven or large skillet that can be covered. Add spice paste, cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant–about 2 min. Add beef, and cook, occas. stirring, until browned and covered w/sauce.
    3. Pour in coconut milk, bring mixture to a boil, add the curry powder. Lower heat, cover, simmer, stirring only occasionally (but making sure mixture is simmering very slowly with just a few bubbles at time breaking the surface), until meat is extremely tender–minimum of 1hour, up to 2 or 3 hours.
    4. Uncover, and cook until sauce is v.thick and carmel colored, stirring freq. so it does not brown. (i couldn’t get the sauce to thicken, so i just did this for about 15min, then turned off the stove; the next morning, the sauce had thickened)!
    5. Season to taste w/salt. Eat over rice and enjoy!

    I love that show. I think one of the best things I ever made was acorn squash stuffed with ground venison, wild rice, and cranberries.

    Re: Best thing I ever ate.




    I love food... I am amazed that I am not the size of a barn. I don't think there is much that I don't like...

    One of my all-time favorites is fresh asparagus, tossed with fresh lime and real butter. Cut short a bundle or two to fit in a Pyrex, put 3-4 pats of butter on it, and squeeze a lime or two over it. Nuke it a couple minutes, toss it, nuke a little more, toss it, and if it needs another couple minutes...

    It is absolutely orgasmic! and somewhat good for you.

    Ooh never would have thought of lime. Bet that would be awesome in the oven too.

    I would be hard pressed to name the best thing ever, but I do believe my favorite food is snow crab. Prepared any number of ways.
