Cider Brined and Grill Roasted Turkey

Do brine or not to brine??
In my opinion,brining is worth it – all you need is time.Follow these steps,你会得到一个永远湿润和美味的火鸡,脆脆的皮肤。

Brined,风干,烤火鸡

My favorite way to make a turkey is to brine it – not dry brine,but in a liquid,for 24 hours.然后,我把它从盐水中取出,放在冰箱里一整夜不盖盖子的地方晾干。This ensures that the skin will not be soggy,but sufficiently dry of moisture so that it will roast,or in this case grill,完美的酥脆。烘烤前,我让它在室温下静置1小时,to ensure even cooking,然后我把它放在烤架上烤。The grill?Yep.我不仅喜欢我的煤气烤架做各种烹饪,我只有一个烤箱。So when the holidays roll around and the kitchen and its appliances kick into overtime,我靠自己的户外烤架来烧烤。间接加热很简单,much like the indirect heat of your oven.Just pay attention to the temperature,and rotate the turkey for even cooking.另外一个好处是烤架会给你的火鸡涂上华丽的红木色,a hue I have never achieved in my kitchen oven.So there you have it.

The turkey pictured is a 20 pounder,but generally,I roast a 16 to 18 pound bird.My family and I don't like stuffings,so I fill the cavity of the turkey with handfuls of herbs,a quartered onion,and a quartered lemon,while taking care not to pack in too much.火鸡煮熟后,在休息的时候(至少30分钟),我取出香草和楔形物,在雕刻前换上一束新鲜的香草装饰。This step is necessary in order to show off the gorgeous results – and,boy,are they gorgeous.

所以,go ahead and work these simple steps into your pre-Thanksgiving plan.你一天可以做一个步骤:从星期一开始用盐水,到星期四结束用烧烤来做一只壮观的感恩节火鸡。It's worth it.

Cider Brine:
3 quarts water,被分割的
1夸脱苹果酒
1杯犹太食盐
1中等洋葱,四分之一
1 small bunch fresh sage and/or rosemary sprigs
3个大蒜瓣,smashed but intact
3湾叶
2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns
1大勺香菜籽
Peeled zest of one orange

用盐水浸泡火鸡,你需要在冰箱里有足够的空间放一个足够大的容器来盛放浸在盐水中的火鸡。这可能很麻烦,但这是值得的,in my book.  I have used a plastic storage box in the past,但是现在依靠一个冷却器,in which I pour the brine directly to cover the turkey.I then leave the cooler outside overnight (note: this is only practical if the outside temperature is as cold as your refrigerator).

1。Make the brine:Combine 1 to 2 quarts water,the salt,洋葱,sage or rosemary,garlic,bay leaves,peppercorns,coriander seeds,and the orange zest in a large stockpot.把水烧开,stirring to dissolve the salt.Remove from the heat and add the remaining water and the cider;彻底冷却(或整夜冷却)。

2。Brine the turkey:把火鸡放在盐水里。If not fully submerged,then add more water to cover.Refrigerate overnight.

三。Air-dry the turkey:把火鸡从盐水里拿出来,在里面和外面拍干。放在烤盘的架子上,冷藏至少8小时或过夜。

4.Grill the turkey:烤制或烧烤前1小时将火鸡从冰箱中取出。To grill: Prepare the grill for indirect cooking over medium heat (325°F).烧烤至完全煮熟,rotating the turkey every hour and basting every 30 minutes or so with pan juices.Allow to rest for at least 30 minutes before carving.

Cranberry Fig Chutney

Cranberry Sauce 2.0
在你的酱汁里加一点佐料

红莓酱配方

感恩节晚餐没有蔓越莓酱是不完整的。虽然我对传统的甜酸果蔓没有任何异议,I find I crave an extra depth of flavor in the standard sauce – and so I devised this chutney.What I like 188bet真人about chutney is it's a combination of fruit and savory ingredients,and not timid 188bet真人about incorporating herbs,spices,and even a kick of heat.In other words,it nails many of the flavor senses (sweet,sour,盐,bitter,heat) that,to me,多吃一口。

In this chutney,dried figs add a mellow,坚果的甜味,and fresh ginger and orange add perfume and zing,all of which balance out the cranberries' natural astringency,让他们继续保持节目的明星地位——毕竟我们在这里说的是感恩节。

The good news is that this chutney is not exclusively for the Thanksgiving table.It also makes a great condiment for other fruit-loving proteins such as pork,duck,and lamb.I like to serve it as an accompaniment on a cheese platter as well,or dabbed on goat cheese-smeared crostini.

三份B辣牛肉,啤酒,and Black Beans

It's Time to Get Your Chili On:

Beef and Black Bean Chili

October brings Fall,足球,and fresh crisp weather,哪一个,in my book,invites a large pot of chili to slowly simmer on the stove,filling the kitchen with the heady scent of browned meat,tomato,and spice on a blustery afternoon.

Now,辣椒有很多种,我也不是一个纯粹主义者。Generally speaking a good chili includes meat,beans,chile peppers,onions,and tomatoes,and,in my opinion,it should be thick and packed with goodies.From there,the variations and tweaks are up to you.不是肉食者?没问题,只要把豆子翻一翻就行了。想要更多的物质?Add a hearty grain to thicken.Not too keen on heat?修补辣椒,opting for more sweet than hot.

This is a chili template I use when I crave a spicy,hefty stew.The common denominator is the plum tomato stock amplified with a generous amount of southwestern spice and chile heat and fortified with stout or beer.I'll change the meat and occasionally add a grain such as barley for extra oomph.The beef chuck can be switched to pork,turkey,或者是鸡肉,或者完全忽略了素食版,加上豆子。In this recipe,I added barley for texture and extra nutrients.其他谷物如法罗或小麦浆果也可以被替代。

Fig and Farro Salad with Mint and Feta

现在是无花果季节,我正在计算:

Fig Farro和Feta沙拉

There is a magical window of time when fresh figs are abundant,and this is it.Soft and fragrant,fresh figs are oh-so ethereal to eat.Their flavor is delicate yet nuanced.Depending on the variety,它们既甜又甜,甜美的,or grassy.黑色任务图是最小的,暗淡而暗淡的甜蜜。Brown Turkey figs are larger,striated in brown and yellow,and pleasingly sweet like honey,while Calimyrna are perhaps the prettiest – green and golden like wheatgrass,with a nutty vegetal flavor.When figs are ripe,they are luscious to eat straight up,but if you are lucky to have too many,then layer them into sandwiches and salads,或者披萨和布鲁舍塔。

这个食谱做了一个丰盛的沙拉,里面全是法罗谷物。如果你更喜欢绿叶沙拉,然后把法罗的量减半。

Fig and Farro Salad with Mint and Feta

Serves 4

1/2 cup semi-pearled farro
1 1/2杯水

敷料:
2大勺雪利醋
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Grilled Beef Skewers with Green Chile Sauce

Lean into the heat with these spicy grilled steak skewers:

When the weather is hot and shouty,那为什么不用烤肉串还嘴呢?这些牛排串不仅在火焰上烤,他们浸泡在令人头疼的酸橙和大蒜腌料中,使肉嫩化,并注入大胆的风味和踢踏的香料。And don't stop there: Raise the flavor and heat bar further by serving the skewers with a feisty sauce inspired byZhoug,来自中东的一种绿色草本调味品。It's a heat-spiked herbaceous blend that's a cross between chimichurri and harissa – arguably a match made in heaven.You can keep the steaks in large pieces,或者,better yet,cut into strips and thread on skewers for fun party food.把酱汁放在一边,so the meat can be dabbed or generously swiped – leave it up to your heat threshold to dictate the amount.

Skirt steak,flank steak,或者说汉格牛排是很好的切法,喜欢腌制,which helps to tenderize their natural toughness.When cutting the meat into strips,be sure to slice across the grain (the way that the muscle fibers are aligned).By doing this,you will cut up the muscle fibers which would otherwise increase chewiness.直接用高热快速烤肉以获得最佳效果。
