Dinner today Wed. Sept.11, 2019 - "cosa c'e nel menu per cena oggi"

From Linda's (nee Anselmo) Italian background:

We're having:
...'cotoletta alla milanese - (con porchetta, non vitello), e patate al forno croccante pecorino romano'....


oops - forgot ....'e anche I broccoli'

From Google Translate: Milanese cutlet - (with porchetta, not veal), and crispy pecorino romano baked potatoes. And also broccoli.

yes, breaded pork cutlets a la milanaise, crispy roasted small new potatoes with romano cheese, and broccoli.
The title says 'what's on the menu for tonite'.


I understand this was one of Sinatra's favorite dishes, (but with veal, not pork) and if it was good enough for Frank, it's good enough for me.
I also read that if the cutlets weren't quite done to Frank's particular liking, there was hell to pay !

I'll be doing some thick bone in pork chops in the sous vide at 140 degrees and finishing on the searing side burner.
Spiralized zucchini with herb butter and fresh chive mashed potatoes will be the sides.

I love all pork, particularly bone-in chops, and pork rack cooked on the BBQ spit.

As Emeril used to say; "Pork Fat Rules!"

We went to TJ's and the liquor store. Dinner was a combo of pork bao buns and pot stickers along with some broccoli. Nothing from the liquor store for dinner.

This is the finished dish:

Not sure what Frank's reaction would have been upon tasting this dish, but I don't think I would have wanted to try serving it to him in any event !

I thought it was pretty much OK good to me, though.

Being on the west coast with 3 hours time difference with you east coast folks, I feel I'm at a disadvantage posting pics of 'today's dinner'.

By the time I cook the dish, take a pic, eat it & clean up, get it up on the pc, and post it, why it's about 10:00 p.m. your time - that doesn't do anything to let you check it out & comment until the following morning, right ?

I dunno, RMM, some of us are night owls (raises hand) and some of us are restless sleepers. You could be surprised at how many late posts you might get. BTW, that looks good.

We had garden salads, grilled steak and vegetables (zucchini, pale green pepper, and red onion), and mushrooms. I first sauteed the mushrooms in a wee bit of butter and OO, then finished them off with dry Sherry. Himself grilled the steak perfectly in spite of the fact that it was only 1/2 inch thick. I got to the butcher shop just as the cutting room had closed. The woman at the register, whom I had never seen before, insisted that I go home with a steak. After repeatedly saying "I'll come back", I gave in and told her that I wanted a piece about 1# and an inch thick. I walked out with a half inch thick piece just over half a pound. Thankfully, it was just as delicious as always.
