Romano’s Macaroni Grill Chianti Pork Chop

Jan 18, 2015 by

If you never had Romano’s Macaroni Grill Chianti Pork Chop you should at least try it ones. This is a great copycat recipe. Here is a video clip how to make the Chianti Pork Chops, potatoes and broccolini. Below I show you how I made mine, with a few adjustments. Used olive oil instead of vegetable oil.  Didn’t have the sprig of rosemary so used the dried ones. And of course the wine. To me it tasted just like at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.

Ingredients
  • Olive oil
  • 1 inch thick Pork Chop
  • Mushrooms
  • 2 cloves of garlic,thinly sliced
  • 1 cup red wine
  • ½ cup Chicken Stock
  • Rosemary Sprig or 1 tsp rosemary
  • ½ cup Honey
Instructions
  1. Season the pork chops with pepper and salt. Slice the garlic cloves, and take the stems of the mushrooms.
  2. In a preheated skillet add Olive oil. Sear the Sear Pork Chop over medium heat on both sides for two minutes. Turn the chops and add the mushroom and sliced garlic, sear for two more minutes. If there is still oil left in the pan drain it. Add the red wine. My choice was Barefoot sweet red. Add the chicken stock and cover the pan, cook over medium heat for 2 minutes.
  3. Turn the pork chops over and add rosemary and the honey. Cover again, cook for two and half to three minutes. Your pork chops are done when the internal temp is 140-150 F. I should have taken the temp on the side of the pork chops that way you get a better reading. It won’t take you but 10 minutes to cook these chops. Take the chops out of the skillet. Turn the heat up and the sauce should reach a sort of glaze consistency.

Babi Pangang

Jan 4, 2015 by

Babi Pangang is my favorite dish on the menu of a Chinesae/Indonesian Restaurant. It took me a long time to figure out how to get the crunchy meat. I read somewhere else that the Chinese/Indonesian Restaurants were deep frying the meat.  Babi Pangang does have many variations in the Netherlands as hamburgers and pizza’s do in America. This is my own variation, with the biggest difference that I add chili paste (sambal oelek). Babi Pangang is supposed to be a sweet spiced dish, not hot. The ginger, garlic and lemon juice are also often left out. Serve with rice and an Indonesian vegetable dish Atjar Tjampoer or as part of a Rijsttafel. Do use shoulder chops, you will need that bit of fat.

Ingredients
  • Ingredients:
For the meat:
  • 1 onion, chopped as finely as possible
  • 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 4 tbsp sweet soy sauce (ketjap Manis)
  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp sambal oelek
  • 1 tbsp lemons or lime juice
  • 2 lbs thick boneless pork shoulder chops.
  • Atjar Tjampoer
For the Babi Pangang Sauce:
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • ½ small onion minced fine
  • 1 clove garlic minced fine
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 3 tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch diluted with 2 tbsp water

 

Instructions
  1. Mince the onion ginger, and garlic. Add the ketjap manis (sweet soya sauce), hoisin sauce, sugar, sambal and lemon juice.
  2. Put the meat in a plastic ziploc bag and add the marinade.Close tightly and put in the refrigerator. Marinate for a minimum of 2 hours or, (preferred) leave it overnight.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator and put in a pot. Add enough chicken broth to cover the meat. Simmer for about 1 hour.
  4. While the meat is simmering you make the Babi Pangang sauce. Mince the onion. Put in a pot 1 tbsp of oil add the onion and garlic. When translucent add 1 tbsp tomato paste. Cook for a minute or so then you add the 2 cups of chicken broth. 1 tbsp ginger and the ketchup.
  5. Then add the sweet chili sauce you can find that in the oriental section of any grocery store. I even can find the sambal oelek in the oriental section now :). Now add the lemon juice and the brown sugar. Cook and stir so the sugar can dissolve. To thicken the sauce add the diluted cornstarch.
  6. After the meat has been cooked take it out of the liquid and discard the liquid. Dry the meat, it has to be dry before you deep fry the meat. Before I used to put the meat raw under the broiler which was okay, but it took to long and I never was able to get the crunchy meat what you get with Babi Pangang. The answer is you have to deep fry the chops 375 F for about 2-3 minutes, watch them because you don’t want to burn them to a charcoal crisp. Slice the meat in strips and serve over cooked rice,  Atjar Tjampoer and dredge in the Babi Pangang Sauce.

Pulled Pork

Aug 4, 2013 by

 

Pulled pork is the traditional pork barbecue of North Carolina. It is arguably the oldest type of American barbecue.

In Eastern North Carolina, this barbecue is traditionally made from a whole hog. In the central to western parts of the state, pork shoulder (Boston butt) is typically used.

The pork is slow-smoked over hickory for twelve to sixteen hours. Because of the slow cooking, the meat becomes very tender and can be torn into shreds by fingers alone. The meat may also be served chopped rather than pulled. This is especially true in Lexington-style barbecue. Wood smoke and long cooking times are required to make authentic barbecue. Pork braised in sauce in a crock-pot or other such device is not considered true barbecue.

Pulled pork is usually served with a thin, piquant vinegar-based barbecue sauce in Eastern North Carolina or a tomato-and-vinegar based sauce in Central and Western NC, and eaten on a bun as a sandwich, or on its own with side items such as coleslaw (mayonnaise-based in Eastern North Carolina, vinegar-based in central and western NC), baked beans, hush puppies, collard greens, or cornbread.

Pulled pork may be prepared from a fresh pork shoulder by slow roasting (6 to 8 hours at 250F-300F for an 8- to 12-lb cut)

Ingredients

Pork Shoulder or Pork butt
a spray bottle with apple cider vinegar
soaked wood chips of your choice
For the seasoning blend:
1 tbsp Kosher Salt
1 tbsp Oregano
1 tbsp Thyme
1 tbsp Red pepper
1 tbsp Chilli powder

Instructions

1.   Soak the wood chips in water and make the seasoning blend.

2. Prepare your pork shoulder or pork butt the following way: cut the fat off the pork shoulder (you don’t have to do that with the pork butt). As for me I prefer the pork butt because it doesn’t have that much fat, but this time the store only had pork shoulders. Rub the pork shoulder with the seasonings. And spray with apple cider vinegar.

3. Put the soaked wood chips in your smoker and turn your smoker on. The temp should be about 250F. And let that shoulder or butt smoke. Spray now and then with the apple cider vinegar, that keeps the shoulder or butt moist. Your shoulder is done when the internal temperature is 200F. Let it rest for about 1/2 hour. This one took 10 hours. You should be able to pull the meat from the bone. Sprinkle with the seasoning blend and add your favorite bbq sauce. Eat it on a sandwich with some coleslaw.

4. This shoulder looks that good I thought it deserves a picture on its own 🙂

Nasi Goreng

Jul 25, 2013 by

Rijsttafel is a Dutch word for an Indonesian-style banquet. The word “rijsttafel” means “rice table,”. Nasi Goreng is the basic for a “rijst tafel” you can add several dishes to this dish, like sate, kroepoek, a fried egg, atjar tjampoer, pisang goreng, gado gado, Sambal telur.

I usually make Nasi Goreng of leftover meat and previously cooked rice. I prefer Jasmine rice but that’s totally up to you. Combining the meat with some veggies this makes a wonderful dish. If you don’t have pre-cooked rice cook it and and let it cool off in the refrigerator. And if you don’t have leftover meat use fresh meat 😉

Ingredients

leftover meat
4 strips bacon
2 cups rice cooked
1 leek
2 cups of shredded cabbage
1 onion
1 tbsp garlic
1 tbsp sambal oelek
1 tbsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 tbsp ketjap manis (sweet soya sauce)

Instructions

1.  The picture below I used the leftover steak and some chicken, cut them up to little pieces.

2. Cut up the leek and rinse well. If you don’t rinse the leek well you may have some sand in your Nasi Goreng and that is one thing you don’t want. Cut up the onion and bacon. Combine 1 tbsp cumin, 1/2 tsp coriander, 1/2 tsp ginger (djahe) and 1/2 tsp turmeric (koenjit) in a small bowl. Set aside.

3. Put some olive oil in the wok or skillet and add the cutup meat and bacon, fry till the bacon is pretty much done.

4. Then add the onion, garlic, 1 tbsp sambal oelek and the bowl of seasoning.

Add the leeks,cabbage and the cooked rice and the soya sauce. Stir fry till done.

Pan Fried Pork Chops

Apr 18, 2013 by

 

The old fashioned way pan fried pork chops. This won’t take you but a few minutes to fry these chops in the skillet.

Ingredients

4 Pork chops (I prefer center cut)
salt and pepper
1 stick of margarine
1 cup of breadcrumbs
1 tbsp olive oil
diluted cornstarch
optional 1 tsp of nutmeg

Instructions

1.  Rinse and dry the pork chops. Season the pork chops on both sides with salt pepper and (optional)nutmeg. Rub them in with some olive oil. Then rub them in with bread crumbs.

2. Put the skillet on high, feel if the skillet is hot. Put your hand over (not on) the skillet, if it feels hot add the margarine and a little bit of olive oil in the skillet. Never cook something in a cold skillet. Because it will make it stick to the skillet. Wait till the margarine gets slightly brown.

3. Add the pork chops. Fry them on medium high, not longer then 2 1/2 -3 min on each side, depending on the thickness of the pork chop. Turn over when brown. Check if the pork chops are done by cutting in the middle of the chop. Then you will see if it is done or not. Make the gravy with the left over drippings by adding 1/2 cup of water and the diluted cornstarch.

Schnitzel, Rahm

Sep 9, 2012 by

Where does the word Schnitzel come from? The word Schnitzel is believed to come from the word der Schnitz which means a slice or a cut, similarly Schneider means a tailor. The Schnitzel, by definition, is made with veal. However, today many German restaurants will offer a “Schnitzel” using different meats while still following the preparation techniques of the Wiener Schnitzel (dipped in flour, egg, and bread crumbs, and fried in butter or oil to a golden brown). You may see this called “Wiener Art,” meaning it was prepared like a Wiener Schnitzel, but the meat is not veal.

Since veal is not readily available here I make mine with pork loin. This is not only a dinner dish you can also eat as a lunch dish Schnitzel Sandwich

Ingredients

Pork-loin
1 cup of all purpose flour
2 cups of bread crumbs
2 eggs
1 tbsp water
Season all
1 lemon
Ziploc bag
For the Sauce:
1/2 stick of butter
1 tray of mushrooms
1/2 cup leftover wine
1/4 cup chopped parsley
pepper
1 cup of heavy cream

Instructions

Turn the deep fryer on to 375F. Cut the pork loin in medallions. Put the pork in a Ziploc bag and pound till thin. Have 3 bowls ready one with the flour, one with the breadcrumbs and one with the egg wash. To make the egg wash add 1 tbsp water to the eggs and whisk. Season the medallions with season all. Dredge the pork loin in the flour, then the egg wash, and last in the breadcrumbs.

The meat is pounded thin so this does not take long to fry, about 3 minutes. Fry in a 375F till golden brown.

To make the Rahm Sauce. Cut up the mushrooms. Add 1/2 stick of butter to the hot skillet and add the mushrooms. When the mushrooms are done add 1/2 cup of leftover wine of your choice, no need to open a new bottle ;). Wait till the sauce is reduced.

Add the heavy cream, black pepper and chopped parsley. Serve the sauce over the Schnitzel. And add a slice of lemon. Squeeze that over the Schnitzel.

Jun 10, 2012 by

Pork Ribs the right way. The secret to make the perfect baby back ribs or any ribs for that matter is to slow cook them. This is a very basic recipe. You can add some water-soaked hickory chunks. Put them in some foil and make a small pouch with holes in it. So the smoke can escape. Remember you can use this recipe on any kind of ribs.

Ingredients

Baby back ribs
6 tablespoons paprika
6 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons table salt
3 tablespoons onion powder
BBQ Sauce of your choice

Instructions

Turn your grill on, the temperature should be about 200-225F. You can use the gas grill or charcoal one. Make sure you use INDIRECT heat.

Clean and dry the baby back ribs. Pull that thin membrane of the ribs, and poke the ribs with a knife or a fork.

Squirt some mustard on the ribs and spread it all over. Rub the seasoning mix on the ribs. Put the ribs on the grill indirect heat, and turn every 10 minutes. This will take about 2-1/2 hrs. The ribs are done when you see the meat pulling back from the ribs. You can eat them with or without bbq sauce
