Dear Jami O and team,

I have a question to the chili recipe in your book Jamies Cooking School.
You do not roast the minced meat, why? You just cook it for an hour. Most or all the chilis I know, the meat has to be roasted until it is crumbly.

Thanks

Browning the mince meat in the pan before you add the other ingredients usually just adds a bit of extra flavour but these days I hav noticed that many cooks miss out this stage . I deduce from this that really it does not benefit the finished dish much .

This is a really good recipe , it will feed many if it is being used to fill 'wraps' but if you are doing it as my family like as a main course it will not feed the amount of people suggested in the recipe .

Once cooked you just 'fork' it apart using two forks . My family love this.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I think it depends on the dish. Some dishes rely on browning more than others for the flavour. For instance, I would brown meatballs if I'm going to serve them in gravy, because that browned-meat flavour is really what gravy is about, but I wouldn't bother if I'm going to serve them in tomato sauce as the sauce has plenty of flavour and umami on its own.

So I reckon you would get away without browning for a chilli - I'm sure it adds depth of flavour but with so much else going on you might not notice if that note was missing - but for plain Scottish mince, you absolutely have to brown it, as that's where most of the flavour is coming from (there's nothing else bar onions, carrots and seasoning).

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie,

I´m a Portuguese mother of a beautiful family. I love to cook although my time is short. Recently I have followed your programs "jamie's 30-minute meals" and love to see "Jamie Does... ". But became a little sad when you were so near by (In Spain) and never came to Portugal. We have delicious plates. The dish that we eat during the year and is our traditional dish for Christmas is made with stockfish. We have more than an hundred ways of cooking it, and many more Portuguese recipes that are delicious. We have a saying "We live to eat and not eat to live".
Would love to see you in Portugal !!!

Thanks,
Isabel Parrança.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Welcome to the forum webb32  smile

Do you meant ' bread and butter pudding ' which is made with buttered bread like egg custard soaked through it.
http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=bread+ … ,s:0,i:122
Or Do you mean Bread Pudding which is a altogether more like cake in texture ( all be it a sort of moist cake )
http://www.essentially-england.com/bread-pudding.html

the links are more so you can see the difference rather than for tips and a recipe.

Once we know then its easy t give you the correct tips and recipes  thumbsup
