Receipts and Recipes By Rote, Inauguration: Steak, Veggies, & Bean Dip [RRR]

June 25th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Food, Recipes

My template is going to be a bit weird, and I’m sure it will change. Feedback is welcome. Here’s the gist: I like to cook. I can usually come up with something edible without much notice. With a trip to the store and a couple of bucks, there’s a 90% chance that I can put […]

Experimental Soup – Avocado/Tomato/Onion

January 9th, 2008 · 8 Comments · Food, Potpourri, Recipes

We’ve decided to pay more attention to what we eat. B is treating it as sort of one part in an ordered series of healthy lifestyle changes. I’m treating it as a single megaton of Smart in my 4 megaton Get-Your-Ass-In-Shape Bomb. I dreamed up this almost-healthy soup on the way home today. I ended […]

New Dish: Racial Slur Originally uploaded by farrisgoldstein. In 5 seconds flat I went from “Hmmm, nobody to feed but myself, what kind of junk should I scarf?” to “Alright, let’s do something REALLY stupid!” The result, which you see above, was defrigginlicious. I guess the best, concise description I can give it is “pan-fried […]

I’ve been messing with a bit with The Rev. Results will be shared later.

I’ve also come up with a half-ass attempt at documenting the chili I cooked last night. More about that later. Here’s the “recipe” I came up with.

Farris?s Green-and-Red-Makes-Brown Chili

2 to 5 pounds of cubed or chopped beef
Extra-virgin olive oil
Salt, black pepper, lemon pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, ground cayenne pepper, ground paprika, dried chipotle, ground cumin, brown sugar (a pinch of each)
2 bunches of green onions, finely chopped
2 red peppers, finely chopped
2 green peppers, finely chopped
2 yellow peppers, finely chopped
1 green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, coarsely chopped
A pinch of garlic powder
A @#%!-load of cilantro, half of it finely chopped
Several leaves of fresh basil
4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 cloves of garlic, roasted
1 pinch of garlic powder
Any other garlic you might find hidden in your refrigerator
2 small cans tomato sauce
1 can beef broth
3 or 4 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
A small handful of cornstarch
Grated assortment of cheeses
A bit more garlic powder
Anything else you might think sounds cool along the way.

Heat oil to medium in large pot. Add minced and chopped garlic to oil. Liquefy half the veggies in blender, saut? other half in oil. Add meat, spices, and remaining garlic. Allow meat to half-brown. Pour in liquid ingredients, including liquefied veggies. Cover and reduce heat to low. Allow to simmer 4 to 6 years for full flavor. 4 to 6 hours will do in a pinch. Thicken with cornstarch. Top with cheese.

I’m sure I’ve forgotten something, but that’s a lot of shit.
