I lived in the Mid-Atlantic states for nearly 20 years. I've since moved to the Midwest. Aside from blue crabs, which wouldn't ever travel well, there's one thing really I miss. Why, oh why, can't the Martin's Potato Rolls people manage to expand to the Midwest? We've got nothing like them out here, that I can find. To quote a CIA Director, "It's a slam dunk." This time he'd be right.
We're coming up on the Indy 500, and I'm curious if anyone has a home recipe for the traditional pork tenderloin sandwiches served at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (and nowhere else, that I know off). Is there egg in the breading? What are the spices?
And while we're at it, I hear all about the shrimp cocktail at St. Elmo's in downtown Indianapolis--but how are the steaks?
That virtually every cocktail recipe is a way to add sweetness to the alcohol involved? I'm not a guy for sweets, and I figured this out 40 years ago when I started tending bar.
Oh, and in my day "mixologist" was a tongue-in-cheek laugh line. And had been for years. Now people take it seriously? SMH
OK, I'm an apartment dweller and love ribs, but can't grill or smoke outdoors. So occasionally I do the parboil and bake thing with ribs. I know, I know, so don't rag on me. I had some celery on hand last time (no carrots, and I can't believe I was caught without onion) so I reduced the boiling liquid down, and now I have cup or so of pork broth.
I know how to use beef and chicken broth, but I'd love some ideas about pork broth. Chinese maybe?
This may be an eternal debate: one of a couple pays more attention to food than the other. They go out to dinner, and the first finds the right things on the menu, and the other orders rather haphazardly. Then the second decides that "sharing is cool." The first just doesn't want to. How pissed can the first one get, and how long should one allow it to last, knowing that a custom is being established? Oh, and does gender have a role here? Are men less willing to share, or women using his willingness to share as a test? Or are women eager to share to show their willingness to nurture, and men generally just want what they want and don't want to share (a steak)? Or do men in general suspect that women know more about food, so they want to share, and are women becoming as selfish as men (if men are selfish, or women aren't testing?).
