I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. The family and I are leaving at
O'dark thirty for 2 weeks in Maui.

Happy new year as well!

Christmas Cooking has Commenced!

Snacking on smoked Alaskan silver salmon:


Relying a bit on Eileen Clarke's wonderful "Slice of the Wild" cookbook:


Elk roast - ready for prep!


Slits filled with sliced garlic cloves. Yet to come; slathering the roast in olive oil, then seasoning with black pepper, minced garlic and a tiny bit of salt. :)


Shopping for the elk roast:


Shopping for the salmon:


Merry Christmas All!

And served, a little on the rare side for some. Pretty much perfect for me.



Merry Christmas All!

Ah, someone else who is the cook of the
house. The elk roast and smoked salmon
look excellent while being still so
simple.

I did prime rib, not wild hunting score
(unfortunately) but bought directly from a
local rancher that I know has a good
grazing herd that he raises naturally.
Sorry, didn't think to do photos. And
then since extra unplanned guests showed
up I ended up also doing a lasagna and a
garlic, feta, chicken and green bean
casserole that I had made up and on
standby in the freezer (I do that a lot,
take a weekend and make up a couple dozen
main dishes and then shrink wrap and
freeze for easy meal prep later.

The lasagna was made using meat from last
year's deer now that I think about it.

So all the adults got a single course of
the prime rib and then all the kids got
lasagna and casserole as well as second or
more helpings for the adults who wanted
more then just the initial main course of
the prime rib. Plus of course plenty of
mashed potatoes made fresh from real
potatoes from my garden with homemade
gravy and plenty of Costco bulk organic
veggies sauteed up in a mixture of butter,
coconut oil, and brown rice oil in just
the right proportions to give that slight
touch of oriental flavor with a bunch of
American flavor buttery goodness.

Outstanding Turbo!

Prime rib is really excellent. This elk was quite good, but... maybe not quite as tender as good prime rib. Still, it was good. We all enjoyed. I think I should have maybe cooked it five min longer, but Mama was happy. She got a more-done end piece.

I've got another of these out on the freezer. Can't believe I forgot about 'em! Probably because I'm big on using the ground meat and the steaks, and I don't do roasts very often.

Merry Christmas All!

Gee Turbo, no wonder you have so many uninvited guests! Try serving cheap bologna to them and you won't have to worry about the uninvited guests anymore. Or better yet, cat food, there's no need to waste good, cheap bologna.

@M700

Your totally right about a good roast
having the extra benefits of providing the
full range of "done-ness" to satisfy
everyone's preferences if you just cut
from the right spots for everyone. The
same was true for my prime rib. And can
be true for any large piece of meat done
right. I actually try to plan it that way
by how I orientate the hunk of meat during
the cooking process. If one stops to
think how one orientates the meat in the
pan one can plan ahead to make sure there
are definite sections that will come out
more done and more rare. Generally I find
it easier then trying to cook different
steaks to different people's taste.

@RT58

Well, I like good food, and I like to
cook, and if I'm going to cook I'm going
to "Do it Right" unless I'm beat tired and
it's just a chore which needs doing.
Which does happen sometimes but most of
that is avoided by my practice of making
up main dishes in advance and shrink
wrapping and freezing them in the big
freezer. Which makes for a quality meal
later with nothing more required then
pulling it from the freezer, unwrapping,
and putting it in the oven for the
required time.

Now I do already plan to do something far
simpler for New Year's, which is mainly
going to be white collars from my woman's
work, co-workers, contacts, and clients.
Going to be more boozy unfortunately but I
can go way light on the food. I still got
a lot of wild pork from Texas feral pig
hunting. Simple dish my mother used to
make was cheap ham sliced thick and layed
out in layers on cookie sheets with a ring
of pineapple pinned on top of each sliced
with a toothpick with some cloves spice
and a little brown sugar sprinkled on top
and bakes up quick and easy in the oven.
Already sliced up a bunch of the pork and
salted it a little and put it in the
smoker. A trip to the store for some cans
of pineapple and I'll be set to make that
up. Might taste slightly different then
store bought pork to those people but I
know if they complain about it my women
will tell them where it came from and it's
not store bought, and at that point they
all know her and will know better then to
get into a hunted wild meat vs. store
bought debate with her.

Was tempted to bring my bow, and a fly rod, on this trip just couldn’t get
it all together.
