Arden,

I'm impressed, your Phaal Research is great, I applaud it.

I know that I haven't made a truly authentic phaal yet. I'm sort of working up to that. I know most restaurants that serve them do loony things like putting 12 naga jolokias in them.

Recipes for phaal actually are not that easy to find. There's this one, which is, uh, awfully basic. Almost no spices, just peppers. If I'm reading it correctly, forty of them. :O

But this recipe has potential. Hmmm....

Quote
However, the fact that you can still walk after one, let alone walk the next day


Or, uh, *sit* the next day.

Quote
means you have yet to make one. Also, what's this specifying the meat? Meat in a phaal should be mysterious and of potentially dubious origin.


Isn't the tenderloin of an Alsatian traditional in Britain?

Quote
You are follwoing the letter of phaal lawbut not yet the spirit. Fight on curry warrior!


I consider the true phaal to be a path, not a destination.  :angry:

What happened with those Dorset peppers you ordered?

Picked up some Guanciale from the butcher. Will be making something with that this week. If I can find someone with a curing locker I'm going to try making some. WAY too hot and humid down here in SC to do it the traditional way and hang it outside to cure. Might try in our second fridge but the humidity in a fridge can be an issue.

If you've never had it, it is like pork heaven.

Jesus, that sounds good. Never heard of it before.

They become available at the end of this month, later in August for the really hot versions. There will be a tasting, oh yes, there will. Lawks! My poor intestinal tract!

Louis

P.S. The recipe with 40 odd peppers, no spices, no flavour and Alsatian meat sounds about right. You're right by the way phaal is a journey, and that journey is usually between the lavatory, the fridge and the pharmacy.

Woo-hoo!!   A friend sent my wife home yesterday with a huge bag (at least 5 pounds) of fresh-picked okra.  Tonight, I'm making "Chicken Smothered with Okra And Tomatoes" from The Prudhomme Family Cookbook.  And, later this week, fried okra.

One does not curry baby.

Such tender meat is best either barbequed or as a carpaccio.

Honestly, do I have to teach you people EVERYTHING!

I've been busy and not eating much all week. Tonight: some country style ribs are currently marinating in Guiness-flavored Bull's Eye sauce in the oven on 200º. I'm trying to see if the warm temp helps the sauce infuse into the meat. After an hour or two of that I'll cook them at 400º for an hour. Serve with Miller Lite.

Tomorrow: weekend food and booze blowout.

I'm hooked on the Noah's Mill bourbon. Drinking it now. Tomorrow off to a concert in Charlotte, many partakings to be had.

This is probably old news for all of y'all but when I read it I immediately thought of Steve S. and company and L&C.  So:

Just for you Steve.

Still not as hot as these.

Wife is off playing bunco, so this is on the agenda for tonight.  It is chilling down for that magical time when all the chores are done.

Verdict:  Good stuff. It isn't the type of thing you drink at the end of a hot day of work, but it was definitely enjoyable.  Flavoring beer with spices is, to me, a difficult thing to do.  There is a real fine line between adding too little and too much. This seems to hit the right balance. You can taste the peppers without it overwhelming the flavor of the underlying beer.

tonight: Johnsonville brats on hot dog buns with spicy brown mustard. Served with Miller Lite Chelada style beer. Possibly cheap vodka to follow.

Presumably brats are bratwurst? I get my bratwurst from Lidl, it's a super cheapo supermarket, by my god the German products are good.

Leave it to an American brewery to really f*** something up.  For a real michelada, here is a recipe.  It is best made with a dark lager like Negro Modelo or Indio.

this is clearly not authentic. This is more like a Miller with about 2 tablespoons of lime juice added. Good, though.

I might have to try it.  This weekend the temperature is supposed to be near triple digits and, thanks to an unusually wet spring, I've got some serious brush clearing to do.  That sounds like just the thing to hit the spot after a hot day of work.

I really enjoy the show "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" on The Food Network.  On a recent show, they actually featured a place I have eaten at, The Triple XXX Family Restaurant, just down the hill from Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN. Seeing the Triple XXX (9 X's?) on TV gave me a craving for a Purvis Burger.  So, tonight for dinner, I am making one for dinner.  

What is a Purvis Burger, you might ask?  Well, it is described thusly:
 
Quote
The Duane Purvis All-American - A very special taste treat!
 
1/4 lb. of 100% ground sirloin served on a toasted sesame bun with melted cheese on top with lettuce, tomato, pickle, Spanish onion and French fries. Add thick creamy peanut butter on the lower deck and you're in for the touchdown!


That is right. Peanut butter on a hamburger.  I can hardly wait!
