    @RockyRoadHux, this reminds me of that Star Wars menu near the cinema we went to. Too bad we couldn't try it out... This one looks much cooler anyways.

    It was a Christmas present, it was supposed to come in November and then was backordered until late January (not sure if it was because of the publisher or just the supplier being out of stock).

    I have "Wookiee Cookies" also. This is the perfect ST follow-up to that fun little SW themed cookbook. :) I have to check, they might even be done by the same people. Very similar in overall appearance.

    Jayson man! What a mouthwatering read! That sound incredibly good and yummy!

    So have to take up the challenge, as I wasn’t paying attention to this fine thread (;)) for too long now!

    Recipe for
    Hoth Pot

    Kale_00.jpg

    This one originates from a region on Hoth, were hearty meals are welcome and help to get through those freezing temperatures. In the original version, the lichen that grows in the ice caves under the snowy surface of that planet was used and that also feed the wild Tauntauns.

    Also, sausages and cured meat from those beasts of burden was used, in addition to whatever Nerf or Moof chunks could be found in the pantry.

    If you’re not able to get your hands on these ingredients, use a local replacement like those below. Note that the dish around here is called ‘Grünkohl’, while in other regions the same thing is called ‘Braunkohl’ (that’s green vs, brown Kale, but it’s the same veggie), see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kale and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grünkohlessen

    Note that the kale needs at least to be frozen over once on the field before harvesting to be able to develop a certain taste and sugar concentration in the leaves. So it’s a classical winter dish.


    Ingredients (for 4-6)
    • 1.5 kg (3 lbs.) kale (I’ll go for the pre-frozen and packed one, but you can use fresh one as well. But NEVER out of a jar!)
    • 3 large onions
    • 5 tbsp goose lard
    • short of 0.5 l (14 oz.) stock (preferably beef)
    • some dashes allspice/pimento
    • 3 tsp. mustard
    • 2-4 tsp. BROWN sugar
    • some dashed of Nutmeg
    • salt & pepper to taste
    Meat, depending on what you get and like, and how many you have to feed, e.g.
    • 1 Mettendchen per person (that’s a strongly flavored smoked sausage from raw minced pork)
    • 5 - 6 Pinkel (a smoked Kaszanka suasage)
    • 1/2 cut of Kassler per person (a salted (cured) and slightly smoked cut of pork)
    • 3 – 6 small Bregenwurst (guess what, smoked pork - see link below)
    • or 1 Kohlwurst (again a smoked pork sausage)
    • alternative smoked pork belly etc.
    frosted kale

    Pinkel sausage

    Kassler (tenderloin cut)

    Preparation

    Dice the onions and heat a large pot, let the lard melt in it and add the onions, stir until soft.
    Kale_02.jpg

    Enter the (still frozen) kale, add ¾ of the broth. Season with allspice, nutmeg, sugar and mustard. You can add salt, but be careful with the amount as the broth might be already salted.
    Kale_03.jpg

    Now for the none-vegetarian ingredients: If you got Pinkel, take 1-2 of those sausages and peel. Cut the filling in rough pieces and add to the kale.
    Kale_04.jpg

    Kale_05.jpg

    All other smoked sausage variants, nick with a fork all around so the juices and fat and leak into the kale, as well as any smoked pork belly.

    Let it simmer on slow heat for about 1.5 – 2 hours, stir occasionally but beware not to break the sausages in the process. If it in danger of burning, add the rest of the broth.

    Then taste and season to your liking. More sugar, mustard or salt? Note that this dish actually tastes better on the second day when re-heated.

    If you use Kassler meat, it can become very dry and tough. Just add it about half an hour before finish to get it to a decent temperature and cooked.

    Remove the meat before serving and put onto an extra, pre-heated plate so everybody can pick what he/she likes.
    Kale_07.jpg

    Kale_06.jpg

    Side Orders
    Traditionally potatoes in one of these forms:
    • German fries with onions (most classic)
    • small ones cooked and caramelized in the pan
    • Plainly cooked (with 1-2 tsp. caraway seeds in the cooking water)
    German fries
    GermanFries.jpg

    So enjoy your meal!

    Kale_08.jpg


    Drinking
    What can I say: A beer is perfect, and some take a Schnaps or two with it also.

    Think again about it – as I now gave away my location in another thread it might be the PLAN (right @Ammianus Marcellinus?).

    Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design. Your friends, up there on the distributor road from the Netherlands, are walking into a trap, as are your rebel friends going by train. It was I who allowed the alliance to know the location of my dining room. It is quite safe from your pitiful little tummies. An entire legion of my best dishes await them. Oh, I'm afraid the main course will be quite operational when your friends arrive!

    Edit: Hey @The Hud, are you now coming over for Dinner or what?

    Well it is a direct connection by train, which is always convenient. :p Hoth Pot looks remarkably German. I love it. Didn't know you live that close by. Last friday I was in Kalkriese with students.

    Tonight I took a crack at making my own Teriyaki sauce. Every time I get close to doing this I end up buying a jar because I hate working with ginger. Anyways, the recipe I used for the sauce is this one:

    http://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/restaurant-teriyaki-sauce-133751#activity-feedsoy sauce
    • 1⁄4 cup cold water


      • Mix all but cornstarch and 1/4c water in a sauce pan and begin heating.
      • Mix cornstarch and cold water in a cup and dissolve. Add to sauce in pan.
      • Heat until sauce thickens to desired thickness.
      • Add water to thin if you over-thick it.
    In doing this I found that I could add sweetness or spicy to it as I wanted, so next time I am going to experiment with some heat. I had a salad with cucumber and radish with thousand island with it.

    My plating still needs ALL THE WORK.

    20180213_163911[1].jpg


    Forgot to add that I made a batch of the sauce and sliced up a good steak to pour over to marinade overnight. It was good.

    What a ridiculously amazing-looking feast that is. Well done.

    Ah, Asian cuisine – what a delight! Thanks for sharing my friend. I like ginger! And I never made such a sauce on my own.

    Edit: BROWN sugar is always the key to success to which @DarthSnow and @GingerByte would agree.

    The reason that I hate working with ginger is because it seems to be a very small window for my tastes where which it works. I would like to toy with this sauce a bit and add more brown sugar and also some Sriracha to make it a bit more sweet/hot.

    One could try what happens if you add ½ cup of mirin or ¼ cup mirin and sake each. And maybe fresh grounded garlic instead of dried powder. And what about sesame oil? The variations are endless it seems!
