Not exactly sure why you'd put up raw horse against butter for flavor. Raw meat, especially horse and venison, is gamey. To serve raw meat properly, you can usually "burn" it with seasoning, like the Ethiopians do. Otherwise you're eating flesh against the ticking time clock of decomposition.

And I'm fairly certain your picture is of a Kobe Beef publicity shot from Japan.

Lsherm: Not exactly sure why you'd put up raw horse against butter for flavor.


I'm not sure why you WOULDN'T.

Butter is just a lipid. Marbled meat is chock full of lipids. Good raw meat with plenty of fat melts in your mouth like butter, only it tastes better. And no deep fried taters to get in the way of raw Ecstasy of delicious sushi, even if said sushi doesn't have rice or come from a fish.

Potato Timbales. Good, hardly original. Try with mmmm, gorgonzola.
 
2012-07-31 04:43:01 AM  
My fattening recipe of the moment :

- With a frying pan, cook dices of bacon in two table spoons of goose or duck fat (goose fat is better), until the bacon becomes white/grey
- Add sliced potatoes and shredded garlic
- Cover the frying pan so as to keep moisture, and stir frequently so that it does not stick to the bottom.
- When the potatoes are cooked (they should be brown, now), generously add shredded parley

It's now ready to eat.

These seem similar to potato dumplings, or any number of similar recipes worldwide, only cube shaped.

Nothing new, although I agree they are good. You can also crumble up bacon in 'em. If you don't care about them remaining cube shaped there's no need to freeze for hours.

No, they are potato croquettes, made in cubes instead of cylinders.

a former coworker and friend married into a puerto rican family, his mother in law used to bring something to work functions that were kind of like fried mashed potato dumplings with bits of sausage. They were awesome. Anyone here know what they are called? Just so I can order them on a menu somewhere.

Amateur. The Cubans and South Americans have been eating papa rellenos (spiced meat-filled mashed potato balls rolled in flour and deep fried) for centuries. And, why yes, they are delicious.

Tried something like this the other day, sort of. Get some baby new potatoes, boil them whole until they're lightly cooked, then smash them with the back of a spoon so that the skin splits and they spread out into little flower shapes, then deep fry them. They come out tasting like those coin-shaped hashbrowns you get at Hardee's - with the skins still on, they're much better than tater tots and get crispier inside.
 
2012-07-31 10:18:38 AM  
Feh, you're doing it wrong.

Peel some russet potatoes, and cut them into irregular chunks about half an inch thick. Boil in 2 quarts water + 2 Tb vinegar + 1 Tb salt for about 10 minutes. Drain and allow to cool. Toss in cooking oil. Roast at 400 degrees until brown and crispy.

The result: perfect roasted potatoes that are fluffy on the interior, and crispy on the exterior. The vinegar is key. It creates tiny fissures in the surface of the potato that vastly expand the amount of surface area that is exposed to oil, increasing crispyness.

Sushi translates to vinegared rice. It's not sushi if there's no rice. If you make it into a roll, it's just be a horse roll.

I've never known tater tots to be anything other than the frozen guys you do up in the oven.
But then I really never had a need to know them any other way.
I shall have to try this, definetly with the butter center.

In East TN people eat these all the time. They're called potato cakes. You take cheesy mashed potatoes, form them into a patty and put them in the fridge for a little while so they stay together. Pull them out, coat them in batter, deep fry. So congratulations to these idiots, you've created tiny potato cakes.

/now I gotta take a trip to the local soul food restaurant for some fried chicken, eggnog waffles, and potato cakes.

A generation ago, Kentucky Fried Chicken (back when it was called that instead of KFC) used to sell french fries that were actually deep-fried mashed potatoes extruded into french fry form.

Nice, soft, and greasy, those things were addictive.

God bless American food.

We call 'em "smashbrowns".

They are indeed tasty and have another advantage over tater tots: no mycotoxins.
