Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi, my name is Juani and im just a regular cook and i've been looking for a way to understand spices, not what someone knows that goes well with something like chicken or pork but what makes them do well with the dish. Im trying to learn to mix spices and so far i havent found a book or an article that would give me some hints, just lists of spices that goes well with beef, bread, salads, etc...
Is there a book that i could read about that?

Regards,
Juani

LOVING MEALS IN MINUTES!!!
Question: Red Chile? I'm in the US- there are many red chiles.  Not sure what I'm going for. Spicy? How spicy? Can you name the variety/varieties to look for?
Thanks!

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi and welcome Albert.  For me it would be a sirloin, on the more expensive side, or brisket on the cheaper side.  Place the jont in a suitable container and throw in a good bottle of red wine,  bouqet garni and garlic cloves.  Marinate in the fridge for a few hours, turning once in a while.  The sirloin wouldn't take too long to roast.  However, the brisket would take, depending on the size, at least 2-3 of hours or more on a lowish heat.  Pour off the liquor before roasting and keep for making the gravy later.  Any cut of beef with a good marbling of fat (for the flavour) would be good.  Even rib, which is gorgeous.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi there,
a lot of your recipes call for meat to be cooked on high heat whilst coated in paprika.
I am originally from Hungary and we use a lot of paprika in our cooking. My mum has always told me not to leave paprika on the heat for any considerable time as it burns easily and ends up tasting bitter. In fact she always takes the pan off while adding paprika to a dish, lets it dissolve in the hot fat - which is the only substance paprika dissolves in - then lets up with liquid and only then puts it back on the heat. I, myself once coated fish in paprika then fried it in a little oil, by the time it was cooked indeed it tasted bitter and burnt. Totally ruined the fish. This has so far made me avoid all of your dishes that has meat seasoned and cooked in this fashion.
Any tips or thoughts on the subject would be welcome.
Thanks  x
