Unexpected ingredient from the central part of the United States! ( in cake )

 

During the times after the Second World War, when eggs, oil and butter were not that easy to find as today, cakes were baked with surprising ingredients, and this tradition was maintained to this day in central parts of the United States .

 

 

American chef Jasper J. Mirabile of Kansas City is the second generation of Italian caterers in this Midwestern town that serves an unusual chocolate cake in his restaurant. It is a cake prepared by his mother’s recipe, which includes mayonnaise.

Yeah, you read it well – mayonnaise. But before you make a yuck face, you need to know that there is a justified reason to add this unexpected ingredient to mum Josephine’s cake. Mayonnaise is put in a biscuit and replaces the oil usually used to make the cake softer and decadent. It also prevents desert from becoming too sweet.

This unexpected practice began after the Second World War when egg, butter and oil shortages dominated, while the first printed recipe dates back to 1927 when the dessert was baked with mayonnaise, walnut, cinnamon and dates.

Pork sausage for every stewed vegetables – You can not dislike it !!!

 

The preparation of homemade sausages allows us to control the amount of spices, the type and quality of the meat and the complete taste of the finished product. With these sausages you just can not make a mistake.

 

 

To make homemade sausages you will need an extension for sausage preparation that can be put on ordinary household utensils like a mixer. Be sure to go to the local butcher to get animal hose, and above all, arm yourself with some will and patience.

Charge preparation:
It is desirable to use meat from the animal’s neck, because this muscle is often used to give a lot of flavor. Do not remove the fat from the meat because it will give you extra depth of taste. You will get the most flavor if you are grinding meat yourself at home, but you can also use the purchased minced meat.

Ingredients for pork sausage:
900 grams of minced pork
2 tablespoons salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
½ teaspoon of cumin
½ teaspoonful spicy paprika powder
1 tablespoon of grated garlic
1 tablespoon of apple vinegar
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
2 tablespoons red peppers powder
Pork filling hose for sausage
Some water

 

You can combine these sausages with any kind of stewed vegetables (Photo: stockfood)

 

Preparation:
1. Roughly grind the meat, add the spices to it. Do not overpress because you will lose the desired taste and texture.

2. Make a mixture of meat and spices the second time through a meat grinder.

3. The pork hose that you buy at the meat or in the grocery store are exceptionally salty so they need to be soaked in  water before use.

The hose should then be threaded over the sausage filler.
Hose extraction and sausage making will be easier if the hose is damp. Firmly tighten the end of the hose to prevent it from tearing.

Make sure that the meat is cold all the time, so the making of the sausage is easier.

4. Place the meat in the sausage preparation machine and gently squeeze it until filling the hose, ie until you spend all of the meat. Cut the surplus of the hose and fold the other end of the sausage.

5. Avoid any pockets of air in sausages, then poke the sausage several times along the length with needle.

6. Bake them at moderate temperature on a pan or grill for about seven minutes on each side, then mix them with grated potatoes and sour cabbage, or anything else you like. Bon appetit!

 

Innards ( thymus ) for courageous cowboys – USA forgotten meal

 

Brizla, crown or latino names are for the chest breast of the calves, which rarely can be found in the shepherds. No, with careful preparation, this innermost dish turns into the finest specialty.

Brizla or thymus, a gland that is just about 800 grams in a newly-weighed calves, and decreases until it reaches the size of the walnut (in a pot of about 500 kg). At the beginning it is a beautiful glandular texture (up to a weight of approximately 150 kg), and then it starts pretending to be in the yoke that it would be unviable to the slaughter bats. The price is in line with that, and our fellows are usually regarded as silly nuts, while in France they are far above this price, and they call it “Ris de veau”. But today, its hard to found it in a butchery.

 

 

Whatever is younger, it is the breast gland larger and more tasty for consumption. For years, this gland diminishes, hardens and loses its gastronomic appeal.

This is just one of the reasons why a good piece of brizle is equally difficult to find, as well as gold. If you are lucky, prepare it as follows.

Ingredients for cooked brizles:
Freshly brizled
2 eggs
some flour
the bread crumbs
vegetable oil

Preparation of cooked broth:
1. Wipe off the cauldron from the opal and the stalk as best as possible.

2. In hot water, briefly blanch to soften.

3. Blanch the brizs into slices, about 1 centimeter thick. Dry them with a paper towel.

 

If calf is younger, they grew bigger and more delicious.

 

4. Brizle in flour, in razzed eggs, and in crunches. Peel the panched chops in deep oil for a few minutes until it becomes crunchy and inside soft and juicy.

By a very similar principle, the brain is prepared.

5. Serve with green salad and tartar sauce. Good apetite!

Tip Tip: If you have a brave folk, do not reveal what you have prepared for them until the meal is eaten until the end.

“Paul Bocuse is dead. Gastronomy is sad,” said Mr Coll, Mayor of Lyon for 16 years.

“Mr. Paul is France, with simplicity and generosity, the excellence and the art of life, and the Pope’s gastronomy has left us, and our chefs in Lyon as well as in every corner of the world have long kept the fruits of his passion for life.” Calleb concluded the BBC report.
