I made this recipe up spontaneously. I really wanted a soup that was warming, mildly sweet and flavourful. I think I captured it with this recipe.
1-2 pounds of chicken thighs, sliced thinly
300g or more of cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 bushel of kale, chopped
2 medium sized sweet potatoes, cubed
2-3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons of sesame oil
1 tablespoon of honey
4 star anise
1 teaspoon of black peppercorns
1 2-inch stick of cinnamon
1 small onion, diced
4 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon of ginger
1 liter (4 cups) of chicken stock
1 teaspoon salt
Flour, for coating the chicken
Add the chopped kale and sweet potatoes to the pressure cooker. Slice and coat the chicken with flour. Add the sesame oil to a pan, heat it to medium-high, and start frying up the chicken. After it begins a brown a bit, reduce the heat and add the honey, so it caramelizes and coats the chicken. Toss the chicken into a pressure cooker.
Add a little more oil and fry up the garlic, onions and the aromatics (star anise, peppercorns, cinnamon) until the onions brown. Deglaze with some of the chicken stock and add it all to the pressure cooker. Pour in the rest of the stock, soy sauce, and a cup or so of water and mix thoroughly. Cook on high for about 40 minutes.
You will end up with some super tasty soup!
I wanted brisket so badly, I decided to make some. Here's my first attempt! It was successful and tasty!
* Note: There are revisions below, in the Notes section *
2 lb brisket
1 clove garlic minced
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
5 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp dry mustard
6 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Apply the dry rub over the brisket, massaging it in.
Mix the sauce very well. It should have a thick, even consistency.
Place brisket in slow cooker, and pour the sauce over it.
Slow cook on either a) low for 8-10 hours or b) high for 5-6 hours.
After slow cooking on high for 5 hours:
Om nom nom
So much more left <3
Could use: more vinegar, less cayenne, more pepper, add a little cumin and clove.
We realized that this is super delicious with some tomato (or maple) baked beans. We added it to our sammiches and oh man, it was happy times.
Damn, I'd post a picture, but we ate it too fast. The measurements below are estimated!
2 lb pork shoulder
3 tbsp vinegar
4 tbsp delicious mustard. I used Kozlik's Sweet and Smoky Mustard
3 tbsp soy sauce
2/3 of a standard mug, so about 10 tbsp, steeped lapsang souchong
1/2 cup or more of maple syrup (I'm heavy handed with this)
1-2 tsp of cayenne pepper
8 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 onion, minced
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 ground clove
Mix all these together with the pork shoulder, and slow cook on medium for 6 hours. I'm sure you can slow cook it on low for longer (8 hours or so) for better results.
This is the first time I'll recommend this, but you're gonna want some Tabasco sauce (or your favorite vinegar based hot sauce) to really make it pop out. Serve on kaiser buns with the juices and Tabasco:)
I just got a little Boston Terrier!
Her name is Chell, since she's super inquisitive and looks like she's trying to solve puzzles all the time. She's 3 months old, super cute, poops all the time, and you can see her in her element on her very own youtube channel!
Now that I have my website up again, I'd like to let you all know that, thanks to the efforts of mwu, we have pandaboards running Boot2Gecko (B2G)! To get you started with your pandaboard, I wrote up some B2G Pandaboard instructions based on my somewhat painful experiences:) You'll want to follow these instructions, because simply doing the typical './config.sh <device>' and './flash.sh' instructions for other devices won't cut it!
So why run B2G on a pandaboard? The answer is we want to get the framerate and other video performance metrics of a device running B2G. For the last few weeks, I've been working on getting Eideticker, a performance metric framework, working with a pandaboard running Boot2Gecko (B2G). A great explanation of Eideticker is found on William Lachance's blog, but briefly, it performs analysis on the video output itself, so we can get measurements like frames-per-second, all by capturing and analysing raw video data. The pandaboard has HDMI out, and is close enough to the target devices we'd like to use, so we're using these are our Eideticker devices. You can track the eideticker/B2G effort with this main tracking bug.
