La Nouvelle Cuisine Thread

To Hell with the old food thread and the loss of all its recipes! Let us forge anew.

I'm making an old southern comfort food. At least I think it's southern comfort food.

Porcupine Meatballs.

    1 lb. ground beef or turkey or venison (I like to use half beef/half venison)
    1 cup of long-grain white rice (I use parboiled rice. It absorbs the sauce so nicely)
    1 slightly beaten egg
    ½ t. seasoned salt
    1 T. Italian Seasoning
    1 clove of garlic, chopped
    ½ t. onion powder
    1/8 t. ground black pepper
    2 t. Worcestershire sauce (I use this http://www.amazon.com/TryMe-Sauce-Worch-Wine-Pepper/dp/B002999MHM. It's a hybrid concoction with sherry and pepper in it.)
    1 regular sized can of condensed tomato soup
    1 ½ cans of water

I multiply the recipe times 4 and leave it going in a 5 quart crockpot for 8 hours on Low.

So for years, I've avoided cans and jars of food that contained large chunks of tomatoes, peppers, etc. It's a slimy, squishy, texture issue of mine. It just occurred to me that I could buy the chunkiest sauce on the market and just run it through a blender for a minute. It's an epiphany!

Ugh. Big slimy, organ-y, sacs of tomatoes.

I do this in my pressure cooker in about 15 minutes.  I do them at Christmas and call them "Santa's Balls."

I can't keep them out of my mouth.

Yeah, I don't have a pressure cooker and to be honest, they kind of frighten me. But I adapted this recipe from an old Betty Crocker pressure cooker recipe book from the 70s my mom used. I've been eating them for 3 days straight and have no desire for anything else.

Don't you eat chinese food?

Through years of trial and error, I've learned that I can accept fried rices (no peas and carrots, for that is an abomination upon fried rice) and a few select chicken dishes. Chinese food isn't exactly resplendent in the use of tomatoes.

Oh, and the little green onions are fine. I actually like those.

No, I don't like them. I love how they make it look like you're buying imported canned Italian tomatoes. You're not.

Buy Pomi instead. It's in a box (which is healthier) and they are yummy real toms from Italy. I've cooked with both and there is a huge difference.

Yummy.

And now I'm going to eat my leftover linguine with olives piquant. It came out great except the kalamatas had pits and I couldn't deal with chopping them. So it's a little heavy on the green and citrus stuffed olives.

There are so many styles of olives.  I love black olives, and some of the pimento stuffed green olives.  Although the green ones are hit or miss for me, even if I get the same brand one bottle I'll like and another I won't.  Seems to be a fine line for my taste buds with them.  My mom loved some kind of Italian green olives, can't remember the name of them, I could never stand even one of those, very bitter.

Olives are the devil's testicles.

Scrotolized!

All olives are awesome as long as they aren't from a can. Canned olives= gross.

Nope, I like canned black olives. Only kind of olive I eat.  Green olives are just nasty. Like salted boogers.

I use olive oil all the time, but I can't really taste olives in it.

To be honest, the only times I've had green olives have been in martinis.
Other than that, I use olive oil and that's it.

Mmm, you know what I do like, though? Marinated artichoke hearts! In fact, anything with artichokes. That's about the only green vegetable besides peas that I really, really, love.
