What's for Dinner? Fri, Sept 22, 2017

On a whim, I ended up in Dallas on a day trip. I'm having dinner in Irving at a place called The Ranch. Food's pretty good. This is Chipotle Meatloaf with a veggie medley. Washing it down with some local Texas wine.

Steve, you should have told me you were coming to Dallas. I've never heard of The Ranch, but I don't get over to Las Colinas/Irving that often. The menu looks good. I wonder how good their chicken fried steak is. The jalepeño gravy sounds interesting.

Oh, on topic, I'm having some USDA Prime ribeye tonight (I went to COSTCO today), sous vide then seared. Medium rare, of course.

I made chicken-fried steak with gravy. Mashed taters and steamed broccoli were our sides. Candy corn and autumn mix candy served as dessert.

I picked up marinated, thinly sliced pork and banchan from a Korean market this morning and made Dae Ji Bulgogi for dinner.

After grilling, the pork is wrapped in red leaf lettuce with ssamjang (seasoned soybean paste) and shredded scallions.

The banchan was seasoned sweet cucumber slices, white kimchi, and pressed fish cakes.

I had some leftover eggplant parmesan, Mrs. T abstained.

We had a late lunch with some friends at a seafront restaurant that has become a favorite for many during rough weather at high tide (and we timed it perfectly). We're getting some high surf from Jose, with a lot of splashover on the road along the ocean. A good wave sends water splashing up over the windows at the restaurant. Ocean facing windows don't open for that reason.

Boneless/Skinless chicken breast (seasoned and seared in cast iron pan then pan went into oven on convection roast for 15 minutes), mashed sweet potato (cut in half, unpeeled, 15 minutes on steam in Instant Pot, skin fell right off, mashed with butter, splash blackstrap molasses, pinch brown sugar and dash maple extract), stuffing and pan gravy. Dinner was cooked in under 30 minutes.

Tried a new recipe today for SO, GD and me. This One-Pot Chili Mac & Cheese Is the Ultimate Comfort Food | Kitchn

It was a hit loved by one and all.
