hello everyone and welcome to my blog!
it's been a while since i've posted a cooking thread! i decided to do one just bcuz also i know how it annoys u all, lol.
i made harissa (a moroccan garlicky chili paste) and marinated boneless lambchops in it and also roasted veggies (mostly zucchini and eggplant but also onion garlic and sweet peppers) and served that with couscous and spinach.
pls upboat and subscribe!
w/ salad too... idk. i need better lighting or a nicer camera my pictures are always fuggin awful the colors look better in irl.... i'm too lazy to try and run them through filters or anything until the color doesn't look shit.
i'm too lazy to go through all the steps unless someone is really curious but i bought a blender bcuz i gave up trying to make dried reconstituted chilis into paste with a mortar and pestle and potato ricer and i have been meaning to get one anyway...
yay i have an easy way to make purees now and cleaning this thing is not as hard as i'd imagined it'd be
here's the veggies and the harissa in that jar before cooking.
basically i chopped those into a large dice, mixed olive oil and the harissa together, roasted them for about 40 minutes, and tossed them with cooked couscous and spinach.
also the chops i marinated in harissa for 2 hours, then seared quickly and finished over low heat with butter and thyme.
is somebody upset? i'll have to report ur posts to the meme police these are not family friendly!
i left the lamb rare-ish (stop cooking when it starts firming up) so it would be nice and juicy. everything was tasty, a bit spicy but not too hot! really nice food and tasty.
like i said i'm too lazy to do a step by step thread but here are the veggies straight out the oven and the couscous and spinach on the right!
i mixed the spinach w/ the couscous after fluffing it a bit. i maybe should have quickly sauteed it some first since the residual heat there wasn't enough to wilt it much. i'll do that next time if i make this again!
stop being rude.
dry roast or pot roast??
it's a pretty simple thing to make either way..
dry, i'd truss it with twine, use a roasting pan to catch any dripping juices (line it w/ foil), season all over, maybe stab it and insert some whole cloves of garlic, then roast on medium heat (like 350 f) until it's ur desired doneness. tougher cuts u'll want to cook longer so they aren't too stringy.
a pot roast, brown it in fat, remove, sautee some veggies, add a little stock or water or wine, cover and stick it in the oven or on low flame on the stovetop covered until it's fork tender. don't let the liquid boil. takes a couple hours but is nice.
i've gotten gore spam deleted here by reporting it before. just help report and they'll ban the person. (assuming we have the same mods and they are even awake lol)
anyway sorry they want to shit up my thread. it's not very friendly.
hah. rude person is gone'd. thx based mod.
here are the veggies before tossing w/ harissa and oil. lol sorry for the low quality thread >_<;
i'll do another one soon!
thanks flippy-chan! :D
almost everything in that is wrong. i don't samefig, i don't talk about my real life. i don't attention whore. i'm not looking for fans (though i would prefer to not make enemies??). everyone using a name is distinguishing themselves from anonymous to some degree. the whole critique is nonsense and from a newfig to boot.
THANK YOU BASED MODS
holy shit this looks delicious, i want to try cooking with peppers like this.
I didn't know you could eat Lamb like a steak. Looks delicious. I guess it's not ground up, which is why you don't want rare hamburgers.
Great thread lolo thanks for posting your meal. I'm really impressed with the chilis I'm glad the rude poster is gone, this is again a nice board.
eggplant takes a bit longer to cook but they were soft after 40 min in the oven. not as creamy as i usually cook them sauteeing but they were not bitter. zucchini cooks a bit faster too. a short sautee of the eggplant before roasting might improve what i made slightly, but it was fine. i don't mind onions and peppers cooked well. c:
harissa paste... i took pictures like i was gonna do a step by step thread but didn't feel like it. i need to figure out what to do with the rest of this. i used surprisingly little and the food was still spicy (god if u make this do not rub ur eyes before washing ur hands, and wash ur hands in COLD water too). it should keep a couple weeks tho i think, so i'll manage to use it. (:
saging my reply cuz the thread's been up enough but i wanted to comment that the chops are pretty small, and also it's couscous and not rice ;p
there is a lot of that and the veggies left. today I'll make a cream sauce and cook some shrimp and serve that with the leftovers.
holy fuck you always have the most delicious stuff on the go. what i wouldn't give to be your husbando/waifu. <3
