Day for Night Festival

Recommended Posts

I used Rick Bayless' recipe for basic tamal dough: http://www.rickbayless.com/recipe/basic-tamal-dough/

 

As for the filling, the chicken in salsa verde was made by shredding a grocery-store bought rotisserie chicken, and then making this salsa verde recipe, mixing it with the chicken (you can also use your favourite bottled salsa verde if you wish to save time/effort): http://www.rickbayless.com/recipe/roasted-tomatillo-salsa/

 

For the shredded beef, I used top blade steaks cooked in this recipe for beef enchiladas from Cook's Country (requires a membership, but here's the ingredients and steps for the beef part):

 

INGREDIENTS

3 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon sugar
Salt
1 1/4 pounds top blade steaks, trimmed according to note below
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 medium onions, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Combine garlic, chili powder, coriander, cumin, sugar, and 1 teaspoon salt in small bowl. Pat meat dry with paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat until shimmering. Cook meat until browned on both sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer meat to plate. Add onions to pot and cook over medium heat until golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic mixture and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomato sauce and water and bring to boil. Return meat and juices to pot, cover, reduce heat to low, and gently simmer until meat is tender and can be broken apart with wooden spoon, about 1 1/2 hours.

 

TRIMMING BLADE STEAKS

After testing various beef cuts, we found that blade steaks (which are cut from the chuck) had enough marbling to produce silky, flavorful shredded beef for our enchiladas. The only trick is to cut away the center strip of gristle, which is very easy to do because the strip is in plain sight in the middle of each steak. Simply halve each steak lengthwise and then slice away the gristle.

I'm really considering starting a "recipe subforum" or similar on the new site - too many people who like to cook and listen to electronic music! :dadjoke:

There is probably enough interest here that it would be worthwhile!

 

We have a few recipe threads but maybe those aren't the easiest to navigate.

One thing I did that I didn't mention above is after the beef was cooked and cooled enough to handle, I hand-shredded it and mixed it back into the sauce.

LOL Dreadlock guy was a few rows in front of us right before Aphex started. They were playing Kraftwerk before RDJ came on and me and my buddy were quietly singing along... "Trans... Europe... Express..." and he turns around and leans back through another row of people and says  to us, "You know it's no accident that they are playing this!" haha looks like he was groovin.

Surely you can logically see the difference between 1-2 posts off topic and several pages in several threads?

 

Or is your cerebral cortex damaged?

I’ve made it through the 26 pages of chatter lead-up to the festival. Used to lurk here at watmm, but can’t really remember a handle from that time. Now I’ve registered as kattin2 – seemed apt. I met many of you at the fest and hope we keep in touch here, and beyond.
