Cooking on a Friday.
February 5, 2016 § Leave a comment
Looks like to day will be a soup day, among other things good to eat. I found what looks like a good recipe for Bun Bo Hue, a Spicy Vietnamese Lemongrass Soup at “i am a food blog” by Stephanie Le. I picked up some oxtails, beef shanks, pork neck bones and a beef brisket today at market. I ended up buying a whole brisket flat that will also end up as steak sandwiches, braised brisket, one piece to freeze and a 1 pound piece for my soup. The stock is cooking now and, with any luck, good soup is my our future.
For the steak sandwiches, I started with about a 1 pound piece of brisket, dusted it with Granulated onion and garlic along with white pepper. I then browned it in a skillet and added some sliced onions and garlic. Then covered with parchment paper and aluminum foil. Now into a 250 degree oven for an hour or so. Once done I will remove the brisket and degraze the pan and reserve the sauce. The brisket piece will go in the refrigerator to cool so it will be easier to slice. Then onto some rolls and we will have dinner.
