What's Cooking?

Tonight's dish is a garbanzo bean, chorizos soup.



Ingredients -

1 lbs. dry garbanzo beans, soaked overnight
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
5 leeks. chopped
4 carrots chopped
1 package of cubed ham
12 cups of chicken broth
3 chorizos, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds. ( I only used two)

This recipe is supposed to be done in a pressure cooker, but I modified it for my Dutch ovens. I also added four chopped Yukon gold potatoes even though the recipe didn't call for them.

Soak the chickpeas overnight

Simmer the beans for two hours

Chop the vegetables

Combine and cook for eight minutes. At this point I realized that I would need a second Dutch oven to hold all of the ingredients

I divided everything between the two Dutch ovens

And then I simmered the soup for another 35 minutes until the potatoes where soft

Dished it out into a large bowl and had some jalapeño cheese bread with some added jalapenos on it.

Not much of a corn beef and cabbage kind of a guy, even on St. Patrick's Day, so I made some (Irish?) chili. I've posted this recipe before, but this time I added a green bell pepper to the mix, and I switched out black beans for kidney beans, and instead of a small can of mushrooms, this time I used a large can.

I then topped the bowl off with some Cache Valley Colby and Monterey Jack Cheese.

You lost me at mushrooms … but it does look really tasty!
 
Last night, I made enough souvlaki for a whole week... It will give my wife something to eat with salad while I work events the next four nights in a row.

A week or so ago there were some peach bourbon babyback ribs.

I was not patient enough and only got these to 197d... some were perfect, some needed to get to 201d, but they were good. Sprouts are good when you char them crispy beyond recognition :)
The whole meal was also less than the cost of 1 steak.
 
This also reminds me, there was some good food had in SE Utah what was now a few weeks ago:

Some golden curry in the Needles... and plenty of Easter candy, like Peeps and cadbury eggs.

Clamatoes and homemade chili with dogs... Those might be circus peanuts in the background of the pic too.

Philly Cheese steaks with provolone... not cheez whiz- IYKYK

Also calling back my younger years, the classic Dinty Stew with instant rice and cornbread muffins.

Good to see some proper camp grub! I always shake my head at friends who go with freeze dried backpacking meals when car camping.
