I made up these sandwich rolls for the Big Sandwich! Challenge. Super easy and very tasty. Here are the ingredients. (From Artisanbreadwithsteve)
24818249799_f7f7424f1a_z.jpg
3 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp instant yeast
12 oz cool water

Combine and mix the dry ingredients. Then mix in the water until fully incorporated and it starts to stick to the sides. Now cover and set aside overnight until it's at least doubled in size.

Next morning the dough ready to be shaped. This dough is very sticky so you’ll need lots of flour on you board to help with the shaping.

And ready for proofing a second time. (2 hours)

      Sent the long weekend off in style with a Double Meat Double Cheese Burger. Fired up Jr. for the patties.



      Flipped and removed them when they were done so I could add the cheese.



      Toasted the buns.



      One more time of the grill to melt the cheese.



      Plated this up with some watermelon, potato salad and a Stone Brewing Xocoveza. (Yum!)




       



       


      After a few bites of this monster.



      So good!


       
      Thanks for looking.

      For the long weekend we started out being invited over to our neighbor’s house for hamburgers. I was tasked with grilling up some corn.



      Once these started getting some golden-brown char marks, I put them in a large rectangular pan and covered them with foil. We took this over with two each, 3 portion plates of fixings. One plate had a stick of butter, salt and black pepper for traditional American style corn of the cob. The other plate had some mayo, Tajin seasoning and come Cotija Cheese for Mexican style street corn. Didn’t feel like I should be taking pictures at their house so that’s all I can share from the 4th.
      Today I grilled up some hamburger patties on my Akorn Jr. for some cheese burgers.




       


      After they were done I removed them and toasted the buns while I added the cheese to the burgers.



      One more stop on the grill to melt the cheese.



      Here is mine plated up with some potato salad, some watermelon and a Stone Brewing Vanilla Bean Porter.




       



       


      There nothing quite like enjoying a good cheeseburger on the 4th of July weekend.

      Chicken is my wife’s favorite and I like to cook things she’ll like, most of the time , so I cooked up some Chichen Shawarma. Started out by skinning and de-boning some chicken thighs that I had thawed out. I cut each in half and set them aside in the fridge.



      I now got out the ingredients for a yogurt based Sharwarma marinade.




       


      Everybody in the pool



      and gave it a good spin with the whisk.



      I then put the chicken thighs in and stirred it up to get complete coverage on all surfaces.



      I then covered the bowl with plastic wrap and placed them in the fridge to rest overnight. Now I made up a batch of Tzatziki.



       
      Link to recipes:
       
      The next day I broke out my vertical spit.



      And loaded it up with the Shawarma and topped it with a nice thick slice of red onion



      After I had preheated my kamado up to 325 for 1/2 hour I put the Shawarma in.



      I checked on it after about 25 minutes and knew it could go much longer.



      After about 1 hour I started getting everything ready. I cut up my veggies



      and got the Tzatziki out.



      I also set up my craving station.



      Once the Shawarma developed some char on it, I removed it and sliced off the outer layer and then placed it back in the kamado.



      I warmed up some flat bread and spooned on some Tzatziki and then made up some Shawarma Sammi’s.



      Here they are served street food style with a Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin and some mandarin orange slices.




       



       



       


      SO GOOD!

      With the “Just Stuff It!” Challenge going on I searched for what might be on sale at one of the local stores. Sprouts had U15 shrimp on sale for $7.98 per lb. so I purchased a pound. I decided to prepare  them my two favorite ways of cooking shrimp. The first is what I call Atomic Shrimp. (Which is bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with cheddar cheese and a slice of jalapeño. As the jalapeño doesn’t make it very “Atomic”, I switched it out for slices of serrano chilies.  Here are most of the ingredients.

      I peeled and deveined the shrimp and then butterflied them. I also sliced the cheese and serrano chilies.

      I carefully placed the cheese and serrano in the shrimp and wrapped them with a slice of bacon. Once I had 10 of them done I placed them on the preheated kamado.

      I grilled them for approximately 5 to 6 minutes per side and once the bacon looked crispy I plated the 5 biggest ones up with a cilantro garnish and a Negra Modelo. Here are those pics.

       

       

      Delicious!!!!!
       
      I had 9 shrimp leftover so I skewered them,

      sprayed they with some EVOO and sprinkled them with some Tajin seasoning.

      Grilled them for approximately 3 minutes per side.

      Here are the plated pics with the Negra Modelo.

       

       

      These were also delicious but not quite as good as the bacon wrapped ones.

      I love Tacos al pastor but have never made them myself. They are a popular street food here in SoCal and Mexico and I finally decided to try my hand at making some. Forgive me as this is a long one.


      I started out by thawing a Pork Butt I had in the freezer that I had purchased on sale for $.99 a lb. (7.93 lbs.)



      I unwrapped it and found there was still some ice crystals on it. (which is what I was hoping for to make cutting it easier)



      I cut it in half and deboned the other half.



      I proceeded to cut it all up into approximately 3/8” slices.



      I placed this into a large container, covered it and placed it into the fridge. I now gathered up the ingredients for the al pastor marinade.



      Here’s the recipe I used. (It’s a combination of several recipes I watched on YouTube) Not shown in the picture are the pineapple juice and the vinegar.

      8 lb bone-in pork shoulder (deboned)

      4 tablespoons achiote paste (I used 1 – 3.5 oz. brick)

      2 guajillo peppers (seeded and re-hydrated)

      2 ancho peppers (seeded and re-hydrated)

      3 Chipotle peppers + all the adobo sauce from 1 - 7 oz. can

      5 garlic cloves

      ¼ small white or yellow onion

      1 oz. Piloncillo (substitute brown sugar if you can find it)

      1 tbsp. dried oregano (preferably Mexican)

      1 tbsp. cumin                                                                            

      1 tbsp. salt

      1 tbsp. pepper

      1 tsp. cinnamon (preferably Mexican)

      1 tsp, cloves

      ½ cup pineapple juice

      ½ cup white vinegar

      ¼ cup OO

      ¼ cup of the water from re-hydrating the peppers

      ¼ cup orange juice

      ¼ cup lime juice

      1 pineapple, skinned and sliced into 1-inch (2 cm) rounds (for the spit/trompo)

      (Note: I only had some small guajillo chiles so I used 6 of them)


       
      Everybody went into the pool for a spin.



      I poured some marinade into the bottom of a very large bowl and then some pork slices.



      I repeated this process until all the pork was in the bowl and pour the rest of the marinade over the top. I then stirred it until everything had a nice coating.



      Now how will I cook this? Tacos al pastor is a dish developed in central Mexico that is based on shawarma spit grilled meat brought by Lebanese immigrants. It is traditionally cooked on a vertical spit known as a trompo. I don’t have such an exotic grill, so I had to improvise. I had found this indoor grill plate at a local thrift store for $2.17



      and used it to create a vertical spit.



      I now peeled and sliced up the pineapple



      And started my vertical trompo stack adding a slice of pineapple and red onion after every 6 or 7 layers of meat.




       



       


      I place the stack in the center of my weber redhead with coals all around it.



      I then setup my craving station.



      Here it is after approximately 30 minutes.



      After approximately 75 minutes I removed the trompo and craved off the outer charred layer. (The char is an important part of the taste profile)



      I then placed the trompo back in the redhead to char the outside again.



      So pretty!



      I then repeated the process another 3 times.




       


      After I had trimmed off the outside 3 times I set up my taco cart errrr bar



      and started to assemble my street taco plate.



      Oh Yum!



      Here it is served up with a Modelo Especial.




       


      This was a little on the spicy side but oh so delicious!         



      Thanks for looking.
