The Official Recipe Thread
 
Welcome to the official recipe thread, please exchange recipes here.

I'll start with my Chilli recipe.

no pictures, just trust me when I say it's good.

Ingredients:

Chili kit (Texas Pete or McCormick)

1 London broil, cut into cubes

2 lbs chopmeat

1 Onion, medium, chopped

10 cloves of garlic

2-8 oz cans tomato sauce

1 can crushed tomatoes w/jalapenos

2 cans beer

2 small can red kidney beans

Cheddar cheese

Green chilies (can) or jalapenos (optional)

Cayenne powder (optional)

Tabasco sauce (optional)


steps:

Slice the london broil into small pieces. place in a large bowl with paper towels, then fry up the chop meat. Brown the meat on medium heat and drain grease. Saute onion and garlic in oil in a big pot. When the onion is sauted, add all the cooked meat. Add tomato sauce and beer. Add beans. Add all the chili kit ingredients except the flour (mesa). You can throw that out. Add green chilies or jalapenos. Let simmer at least 1 hour. The longer the better. If the chili is overpowered by the meat add chili powder for flavor and color. Serve with shredded cheddar.


Notes:
You can increase the amounts...typically it's a small london broil, to about 2-3 pounds of chop meat(typically chuck, but choose what you like.) I would increase the cans of tomatos to 2 16 oz cans or one 28 oz can.

This is not a traditional chilli by any count, and make a boat load of food...I usually serve it with a dollop of sour cream, some shredded chedder, and some corn chips...keeps well for a week in the fridge...enjoy!

One of my summer favorites: BEER CAN CHICKEN

1 (4-pound) whole chicken
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons of your favorite dry spice rub
1 can beer

clean out the chicken and wash it. Wash the beer can, pop it open and drink about half, then shove the chicken onto the beer can making sure that the can is completely covered. The put it on the grill making sure that the burners directly under it are off... you are basically cooking it with indirect heat (other burners should be on medium heat). Close the grill and let it sit for about 75-90 minutes depending on your grill.

Remove from grill and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, then eat and enjoy along with the other 5 beers

it turns out great, and you can make it 1, 2, 3 alarm, I typically make it 1.5 - 2, I like a little heat but like to be able to taste my food, I brought this to a superbowl party in a slow cooker, and about 1/2 of it was gone then, my wife took it to her office(about 50 people) the next day and it was gone.
it took me a long time to find a good chilli recipe...

I've done this before, turns out moist and juicy...and it makes great pictures because the chicken sits up......question, what rub do you use? or do you make your own? also I like to wrap the beer can with foil, never trust the printed cans...

I'll usually make my own rub, basically equal parts except for the ground pepper since I'm not a huge fan of pepper.

paprika
sea salt
chopped rosemary
dried thyme
fresh ground black pepper

a steak which, when served to a girl, will, in fact, get you laid.

new york strip.

coat in a light drizzle of olive oil.
sprinkle of rosemary.
sprinkle of thyme.
sea salt lightly.
a few turn of freshly cracked black pepper on each side.

wash your hands, then rub and knead all the ingredients into the steak on all sides.

throw on a hot hot grill for three or four minutes on each side for medium rare, or less or more time depending on your personal preference.


this is a good french inspired recipe that i learned from my elderly neighbor who is a Vietnamese from Paris, FR. best steak recipe i have ever had. go figure.

I got my woman with this one....

Ingredients:
1 package of boneless skinless chicken(cutlets or just pounded thin)

flour for dipping.

bottle of white wine, like a pino grigio

bottle of italian dressing(none of that fat free crap)

multi colored pasta, or fresh pasta.

Steps:

Boil the pasta according to the instructions...

take the chicken and dip it into the flour, on both sides...
in a large skillet, heat up some italian dressing, and once up to temperature, medium- medium high, put chicken in...pour some more dressing in, and then cook till one side is white,,,flip chicken, add a little more dressing, and then some wine. enough just to cover the chicken. lower the heat and simmer till the chicken and pasta are cooked...

serve the chicken over the pasta, using the wine, flour and dressing mixture as sauce, and enjoy some of that wine.

Stuffed Lobster Tails (amazing, probably my favorite meal)
A couple of nice sized lobster tails between 10-16oz each.
1 can of Jumbo Lump Crabmeat

First take the lobster tails and cut down the middle of the shell with a pair of scissors, and flip the meat up on top of the shell. put a little butter and garlic on the top.
Cook in the oven for about 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Crab Stuffing
In a bowl mix a couple eggs, few tablespoons of mustard, little old bay, about 1/2 cup of mayo, some salt and pepper and some parsley flakes. You want this to be a little bit on the runny side not a thick sauce.

put the jumbo lump crabmeat in a bowl and mix in some italian bread crumbs and panko bread crumbs, and add a little bit of the sauce. Mix this all together adding breadcrumbs or more sauce if necessary you want the crab meat to stick together.

Then with the leftover sauce add more mayo and a little mustard to it to thicken it up and this will make you an imperial sauce.

After the lobster tails have cooked for 8-10 minutes take them out of the oven and place about 4-6oz of crabmeat on top. Cover with the imperial sauce and sprinkle paprika on top. Place these back in the oven on 350 for about 5-7 more minutes. You want the lobster meat to be nice and bright white, and the sauce on the crabmeat to be almost a golden color when finished cooking.

Melt some butter on the side for dipping and prepare for heaven =)
