Hot Tenderloin Sandwich

Hot Tenderloin Sandwich

Hot Tenderloin SandwichThin slices of supple grilled beef give this simple recipe most of its glory and glamour. The sour cream dressing, grated cheese, and peppery arugula add their own spectacular touches but remember, it’s still a sandwich. Plates are optional.

1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 center-cut beef tenderloin, 2 to 2-1/2 pounds
Extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 large French baguette, sliced in half lengthways
1 bunch arugula, washed and dried
1 cup grated Fontina cheese

In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream, horseradish, and mustard. Set aside.

Lightly brush or spray the tenderloin with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Allow the tenderloin to stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling. Sear over Direct High heat until well marked, 8 to 10 minutes. Continue grilling over Indirect Medium heat until the internal temperature reaches 140° F for medium rare, about 20 minutes. Remove from the grill, and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. The internal temperature will rise 5° F to 10° F during this time. Cut into 1/8-inch slices.

Lightly brush the cut side of the baguette with olive oil and grill, cut side down, over Direct Medium heat until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds.

Spread the baguette with the sour cream mixture, layer with arugula and sliced tenderloin, then top with the grated cheese. Cut crosswise into individual sandwiches.

Makes 6 servings.

Chocolate Cupbread Recipe

White chocolate is marketed by confectioners a...

Image via Wikipedia

So while everyone needs no introduction to the universally celebrated cupcakes, i shall present cupbreads!

Here in Indonesia, these breads are known as “bloeder”, or sometimes spelt as “bluder”. And I am guessing, from its name, it is probably western influenced. These breads are very much like French Brioche, without small head of a dough on top of it.

Similar to the brioche, the bloeders is very high in both butter and egg content, they are indeed very rich and tender crumbed. I don’t even think you need to chew on these. Besides butter and egg, these bread are also very high in sugar content, which makes it pleasantly sweet tasting even when eaten on its own. But having said that, still, i have decided to fill them up with a generous chunk of milk chocolate. Because really, since i am already eating something sinfully delicious, why not go all the way? LOL

The proofing time for this bread takes a wee bit longer than usual. I suspect it might be because of all that butter and sugar, which might dampen the yeast activities. The total proofing time for this bread was about three hours, and in my tropical weather, that’s considered very, very long.

The dough for these bloeders are also quite different from the dough i am used to. Being high in butter content, these breads are very slimy. My hands kept sliding off the dough as i tried to knead it. Sealing the chocolate chunks within the dough was also not easy with the grease coating all over the dough.

As for the texture of the final product, these breads are so fluffy that you tear a huge chunk off these bread, thinking you will get full after a few mouthful, but in reality, being voluminous looking because of air, these bites just dissolve into nothingness.And you risk looking like a glutton when u reach for your second piece.

I also think i might have overbaked this dough as it turned out quite dry and crusty at the sides, and i must definitely keep closer watch over these next time!

Fresh Flour Tortillas! – Homemade Flatbread Recipe – Make Your Own Wraps!

 

The article below was taken straight from http://foodwishes.blogspot.com to go with the video.
I was debating whether to call these supple, delectable discs, “tortillas,” or “flatbreads,” but since they were inspired by my testing of the Imusa tortilla press, seen herein, I decided to go with tortilla. This intro is dedicated to hungry SEO gurus everywhere.
Regardless of what you call them, if your only experience is with the dry, mundane supermarket varieties, you are in for a serious treat. Homemade tortillas are so much better that if you do decide to give these a try, be warned that you’ll have a very hard time ever going back to the packaged option again.
Not only is the recipe very easy to make, there’s no waiting hours for anything to rise, so in less than 30 minutes, you’ll be enjoying the finest in hand-held meat delivery systems. Ironically, I failed to have any juicy grilled meat ready for the money shot, so I was forced to enjoy them au natural.

As I mention in the video, the hardest part of the entire procedure is rolling the dough balls into nice thin discs, but if you have a tortilla press this becomes very fast and easy. Since this post was made possible by my friends atImusa, who also provided the press you see here, I’ll included a couple links in case you want to add this apparatus to your kitchen tool collection.

I hope you give these a try soon, and your days of using store-bought tortillas comes to a warm, soft, and delicious end soon. Enjoy!
Ingredients:
8 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 3/4 cup), more as needed
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup hot water (about 105 degrees F.)

Betty’s Winning Chili Cheese Hot Dogs Recipe

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make her Winning Super Bowl Chili Cheese Hot Dogs. These use Betty’s Own Super Bowl Chili Sauce, which you will find in bettyskitchen.

Ingredients:

1 package hot dogs
1 package hot dog buns
Betty’s Own Super Bowl Chili Sauce, heated and ready to serve from crock pot
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
chopped fresh onions
sauerkraut, drained
sweet or dill pickle relish
mustard and ketchup, and other condiments, as desired

Boil as many hot dogs as desired in water, according to package instructions, about 4 minutes. Steam buns, if desired, for about 2 minutes. (I did the boiling of the hot dogs and the steaming of the buns with an appliance called “The Steamie.”) When ready to assemble your Winning Super Bowl Chili Cheese Hot Dogs, lift each hot dog out of boiling water using tongs, and let it drain a bit before inserting it into steamed bun. Use a slotted spoon the hold the amount of chili sauce you want, and let the liquid drain from it back into the crock pot. Then arrange the chili sauce from the slotted spoon on top of the hot dog. Sprinkle with shredded sharp Cheddar cheese and chopped onions. Place over steam for an additional 2 minutes to melt the cheese on top. Serve immediately. You may use just the chili sauce or just the cheese to top the hot dog. You may also choose any of the following as additional toppers: mustard, ketchup, sweet or dill pickle relish, sauerkraut, and other condiments, as desired. This is a great, hearty snack for a Super Bowl Party, and it is very easy to make! Happy Game Day! –Betty 

A wedge of Unpasteurised West Country Cheddar ...

Image via Wikipedia

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Jazzed-Up Grilled Pimiento Cheese Sandwiches. The filling is sharp Cheddar cheese, blended with mayonnaise, sour cream, pimientos, green onions and a touch of ground red pepper. It is spread on hearty white bread, topped with tomato slices, and then grilled in butter for a gorgeous and delicious sandwich.

Ingredients (for 2 sandwiches; you may have some filling left over):

2-oz. jar diced pimiento, drained
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sour cream
green tops of 1 green onion, finely chopped
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper, or less, to taste
8-oz. extra sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded
4 white or wheat bread slices
1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons butter, softened

In a large bowl, stir together 2-oz. diced pimientos, ¼ cup mayonnaise, ¼ cup sour cream, finely chopped tops of 1 green onion, and 1/8 teaspooon (or less) ground red pepper. Stir in 8-oz. shredded extra sharp white cheddar cheese. Spread one side of each of two bread slices with softened butter, and place them, buttered side down, in a large skillet or on a griddle. Spread about 1/3 cup of pimiento cheese mixture on top of each slice of bread. Place 2 thin slices of tomato on top of the pimiento cheese, and cap each sandwich with another slice of bread. Butter the top of the bread with softened butter. Place the skillet over medium heat, and then reduce to low, grilling the sandwiches slowly to allow flavors to mingle and cheese to melt. When brown on the bottom side, turn the two sandwiches over and brown the other side. When both sides are brown, remove from skillet and immediately place on a serving plate. I served mine with Kentucky “Caviar” and Raspberry Tea, both of which you will find in bettyskitchen. I hope you enjoy the sandwiches! –Betty 

½ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated
