    Shepherds Pie (cheated w/ instant mashed potatoes)

    I love Shepherds Pie and this one came out ok, not as deep and savory as I would have liked. I will try again. It was filling and hearty! I’ll use Kent Rollins recipe next time, as was recommended to me.

    I couldn’t get the top to brown and it was getting late so we ate it as is.

    It’s been chilly lately and I’ve been craving a hearty soup to warm up my bones. I found a really easy bratwurst soup recipe and I thought adding some southern style drop dumplings would make an awesome meal so I gave it a try.

    Bratwurst Soup w/ Vegetables and Southern Style Drop Dumplings

    Really simple, everything on its on already is delicious. Beer bratwurst (crumbled), potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, garlic and beef broth. At the end add salt, pepper and if need be- chicken or beef bouillon cubes. Season to taste

    I’m trying to nurse my GF back into health today. She’s on strict orders: rest, water, vitamins, and soup…


    BECKER CHICKEN SOUP


    Went back and forth between the Knulujulu and ky chefs knife


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Salted, floured, and then trying to brown it, put too much chicken in at once it kinda boiled. The flour did start to build a fond.


    [​IMG]


    Cleaned out the fridge and threw in bok choy into the mix


    [​IMG]


    Simmering… percolating and mingling going on-

    I was going to make some southern style drop dumplings but got lazy and ate it with rice

    Kept dinner simple tonight, since it's the calm before the storm. Pan fried steaks in my cast Iron skillet. I tried a coulette cut steak today for the first time, cooked medium. Over cooked it a bit, I wanted medium rare. The other is a NY strip, cooked done (GF preference).

    Used the Nordsmith Canteen Knife for the honors. The handle is a work of art and the LTWK team did an amazing job with all the contours.

    First time cooking a Turkey. I was supposed to just cook the Turkey but Covid happened and I had to rush and put together a couple of sides. Very basic spread but hey, gotta adapt.

    I used the Turkey bag method and it came out moist. I brined it for 12hrs, should’ve been 48hrs. The drippings made an amazing gravy.

    First Turkey completed, it came out pretty decent, I’ll take that as a win. Rib roast for Christmas next.

    Used leftovers to make an old classic school cafeteria- Turkey Slop.

    I used up all the celery and carrots, so it's just leftover turkey, Turkey dripping, milk, flour, and some seasoning- over mash.

    Had This for lunch and really enjoyed it!

    I smoked a half dozen pork tenderloins and a couple of turkey breasts for Thanksgiving. Well, they are all gone. My Daughter begged me to do more today. So easy and SO tasty!
