Ooof. I may have hurt myself
« on: September 29, 2019, 07:36:03 PM »
No wind today, so I spent the day moving all my embedded system ESP32, ESP8266, Raspberry Pi. Mqqt and Node-Red bullshit to the office in the shop since it was threatening to take over our entire kitchen This shit takes space. Which computer am I using? What in the hell is the IP address of that fricken raspberry pi now? God, I hate DHCP.  Fellow geeks know the pain.

Anyway, I spent some time over the last two days making braised beef and a ridiculously rich mushroom sauce so we could indulge a friend and his wife for his birthday with a totally crazy version of Beef Stroganoff that Tomas Keller does at Ad Hoc. Yeah, I know, mom did it with Cambell's Mushroom soup. This ain't that. In the meantime, Diane got a flu shot and got progressively sicker, so we called it off.

Anyway, I came back from pulling my hair out at the shop trying to remember WTF I did to make this crap work, and I just wanted something simple. Diane is eating scrambled eggs, so she's out. I had a fat couple of steaks in the fridge, so I thought--simple, good, steak. But as it was sizzling in a red hot cast iron pan I thought "I have partly sauteed mushrooms that I was going to finish hot and fast to put on the stroganoff. So I tossed some of those in the pan. Then "how about some of that late autumn last cutting skinny asparagus. That would be good". Cut some of that, and tossed it in. Once everything was done I thought "wouldn't this be good with a little of that Stroganoff mushroom sauce on top. Added a little wine to the frying pan to deglaze and reduce, tossed in a little mushroom cream sauce, and poured it over the steak. My simple clean meal kicked up by about 3000 calories and now I need to go lay down. But holy shit was that good.

A little Syncline Subduction Red and we're done here. Time for a coma.

It's mind boggling how much stuff you get done in a day and the incredibly complicated projects you tackle, then have the energy to cook elaborate meals at the end of the day. Sometimes I'm lucky if I can manage to get the lawn mowed.

The real recipe is in Thomas Keller's "Ad Hoc At Home" cookbook. You can see some food blogger interpretations by googling "Thomas Keller Beef Stroganoff. If you just want the braised shortribs, it's about a one-day deal. Make the braising liquid, braise the beef, submerge it in the liquid and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight.

Gotcha, I was struggling to see how a two day cook time could make anything but mush or charcoal.
