The fine members at Uncensored agree that facebook is horrible. I want to see if there are things we agree on.  For the American readers, does anybody else dislike that "traditional" green bean casserole served at Thanksgiving?  The dish that is made from mushroom soup, green beans and deep fried onions.  I don't hate it, if it was never served again I would not care.

 

This could be popular all over the world, but it is a Thanksgiving dish.

I'm not sure I'm familiar with that dish. Does it have a name?

Actually I make it without mushroom soup. Instead I use a roux... Flour, butter, chicken stock, fresh mushrooms green beans and fried onions.

Lately, when I want green beans, I've just been sauteeing them in butter (possibly with a dried, red thai chili or two in the butter) and a bit of minced garlic, with some rosemary or an "herbs de provence" blend, and maybe a minimal amount of cumin. Sautee until they darken and start to blister, then reduce the heat and steam them until done.

(sautee about 7 mins, add water to pan and steam about 5)

I like green beans, we grow them in the garden just a little butter is fine.  A friend and I were having a conversation and we both agreed that we couldn't understand why the green bean casserole (see links above) was such a "traditional" Thanksgiving dish.

The bland, life-sucked-out version of string bean casarole can be consigned to oblivion.

But, one can prepare the dish in a way that provides hyper-yummy goodness to one's warm-blooded thorax regions. I don't quite know what it takes to do that, though.

Green bean casserole is rather plebian if it's made the common way, with Cream of Sodium soup as the base. I've made it that way when I was in a hurry, but it's way better when made from scratch, with hand-selected seasonings and fresh dairy.

But that was Thanksgiving. This past weekend I realized that Hanukkah was starting and there just happened to be some oil in my fryer so ... it was definitely time to make the Official BTX Latkes. Even though these are not usually deep-fried, I jumped on the opportunity and they were hyperyummy.
I served them alongside the traditional applesauce, sour cream, and for reasons I still do not comprehend, kielbasa (making the table decidedly non-kosher, but I've got to say it actually paired pretty well).

Chanukkah Sameach to those of you observing the holiday this week.

The proper thing to do with greenbeans is to defrost (frozen) or partially cook (fresh), then saute them in olive oil with coarse salt, granulated garlic (or mushed up/finely chopped fresh garlic) and almond slivers.

I do that a lot (except for the almonds because I rarely have them on hand).
I usually end up overcooking them though.

My family loves when I cook teppanyaki (Japanese hibachi) style food.  I've got a big griddle that I can either put on my barbecue grill or over a group of burners on the stove.  I cook the noodles and meats and vegetables etc. while banging the cutlery around and shouting in mock Japanese.

Last night I was getting ready to do some steak and shrimp with noodles and veggies, and for the first time ever in a lifetime of cooking, I started a kitchen fire.  I guess I let the oil get too hot, and when I put some moisture down on the griddle, up went a big cloud of steam and oil, which ignited into a big fireball.  It filled the range hood with a fireball too, which melted the insulation on the fan and light wires, shorted everything out, made more pops and sparks, etc.

I think the fire extinguisher made a bigger mess than the fire.  Dry chemical gets all over everything.  You can't see it very well in this photo but there was a thin film of it everywhere.  It took two people over an hour to clean up, and now I'm off to the store to get a new range hood.

You should buy a halon fire extinguisher. I keep one in my car.

Now that I'm back home, tonight will be attempt #2 to burn the kitchen down, or at least to cook the meal that started the fire last time. Since I currently have no working range hood I think I'll just use a couple of pans instead of a griddle. But it occurs to me that what I actually need is a wok.

And of course it's off to the home store tomorrow for a new range hood.
