  • Inspired by Wayne's sushi thread and curious about Aroogah's carnitas recipe, I thought it might be good to share our favourite recipes especially as there are so many vegans on here.

    I will get writing my Thai Green Curry recipe now....

  • Don't forget you MUST split the coconut milk before adding the (home made, of course) green curry paste... ;)
    Really annoys me when the paste just gets chucked in...
    Great thread JOL, been wanting to start one up for a while... There's a great one on NYC fixed... :)


  • Rejoice!

  • Very inappropriate for Vegans bus since you asked nicely...

    This is my Carnitas recipe...good for a rainy day when you just want to laze around for hours and make the house smell like slow cooked meat.
    Carnitas
    Serves 2

    1 1/4 pounds of pork shoulder - 1 solid piece is better but if it does come cut up then try to get it in large chunks
    1 Tsp of Cayenne Pepper
    1 Tsp smoked paprika
    1 Tbsp Salt and Pepper
    1 Tbsp oregano - I use fresh but use half the amount if dried
    2 Tbsp oil

    Turn on the oven on 250F or 120C
    Coat the pork shoulder in the dry ingredients and set aside
    On a medium-high flame, heat up the 2 Tbsp of oil in a big dutch oven type dish
    Once the oil is hot throw in the pork and brown well on all sides
    Once the meat it browned, cover with a lid and stick it in the oven for 30-45 minutes
    The fat from the pork will render out and help keep the meat tender and not stick to the pan

    Take the pork out of the oven and then add the following liquids to the pan

    1/2 Can of full on Coca-Cola - Not diet, caffeine free water substitute - you need the sugars
    1/2 Can beer
    1/2 cup milk
    Juice of 3 Oranges & 2 limes (freshly squeezed- about 1/2 pint in total)

    Along with

    1-2 cloves chopped garlic
    1 Bay leaf
    4 heaping tsp of Chipotle Pepper paste

    The liquid should just cover the meat, but a little more is not going to hurt anything. Give everything a stir and stick it back in the oven for another 2-3 hours - until the meat is super tender

    Remove the pork from the liquid and lightly shred it using a couple of forks. Try to keep it in big-ish pieces as it prevents it from drying out too quickly in the next part.

    Heat up a sautee pan with about 1-2 Tbsp oil. Once the oil is hot, add in the shredded pork. What you're aiming for is a nice combination of soft pork with some crispness around the edges. Get the balance as you see fit, but the pork will try to dry out quite quickly so not too long.

    Serve on flour tortillas with salsas and/or sour cream and/or guacamole. Highly recommend that you get your hands on some Cholula to sprinkle over the top as well.

    Wash down with beer that has lime wedges jammed into the bottle.

    On a total side note - if you need to know - there's a South African guy that sells proper Mexican chilies and other Tex-Mex ingredients at Borough Market. His habanero sauce is good and deadly.

  • Awesome, Thanks.
    I'll put up mine when I get a moment....and Joe, I don't use curry paste at all!

  • fck me, that's some epic cooking chris! one to make whilst on a movie marathon?

    did you ever find out where Offside Bar got their cholula sauce from?

  • that sounds like a brilliant recipe. im gonna have to print that out.

    I prefer epic cooking whenever possible. I even make my own demi-glace: that's an entire weekend and requires a special order of veal bones from the butcher.

    Google got me a source for Cholula. This "Internet" thing just may catch on afterall...

  • made this last night. you know it's good cuz it's sanctioned by john pawson!

    Chicken and White Wine Stew with Gremolata

    3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    100g unsmoked streaky bacon, rind removed and sliced (leave out if, like me, you don't eat pigs)
    1 large onion, peeled halved and sliced
    1 celery heart, trimmed and sliced
    1 garlic clove, peeled adn finely chopped
    salt & pepper
    1.1kg chicken pieces (thighs and drumsticks)
    1/2 tablespoon flour
    300ml white wine
    300ml chicken stock
    230g can chopped tomatoes
    3 red chilies
    2 rosemary sprigs

    Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a casserole over medium heat. Add the bacon, onion, celery and garlic and sweat for about 10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, season the chicken pieces. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan. Fry the chicken in batches if necessary, over a high heat until coloured on both sides. Add them to the casserole. Sprinkle over the flour and stir to coat the chicken and vegetables.

    Pour over the wine, stock and chopped tomatoes. Tuck the whole chilies and rosemary sprigs between the chicken pieces (don't let the chilies break -- keep them whole). Bring the liquid to a simmer then cover and cook gently for 30 minutes.

    turn the chicken pieces and cook uncovered for a further 30 minutes. Remove the chilies and rosemary, and serve with gremolata scattered over. mmmmmmmmmmm...

    Gremolata
    1/2 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
    2 tablespoons coarsely choped flat leaf parsley
    zest of one lemon

    Mix together all the gremolata ingredients in a small bowl then scatter over the stew.

  • Regarding Arrogah's carnitas recipe... it calls for chipotle paste, which I've never seen before, but I managed to find it in Waitrose in the world food aisle.

  • made this last night. you know it's good cuz it's sanctioned by john pawson!

    Not very minimalist though is it. :-P Hmmm....gremolata..thanks Teddy!

    I love things like the 'world food aisle'. similarly, sections in music stores labelled 'world music'

    always makes me think, 'ah, that's where it comes from'

    I do the same but crack an egg or two on top before I put it in the oven.
