Re: Any Of You Cook?


My wife was out last night and left me to my own devices for dinner. Found a piece of ham, some bacon, mushrooms, sport peppers and 5 eggs in the fridge. Topped it off with some fresh cilantro and green onions.

Drop the spatula…

I'd like to try it that way. Can't say how the process is with the steaks I get that aren't grass fed.

I tell you I don't know how HEB does it but, they are damn good and just from a grocery store.

I am going to build a butcher room here on my place (after several other projects) and butcher my own beef at one point. I may try the corn at that point

The fat is yellow on true grass fed.

Re: Any Of You Cook?


I am kind of a vegetable snob. Growing up with garden fresh veggies "ruined" me.

The variety, time of picking, sun and soil quality, and water quantity, all influence veggie and fruit flavor.

Mass produced veggies tend to be picked too early and fed large quantities of water to bulk up. Too much water washes out flavor.

Re: Any Of You Cook?


I've eaten beef from Australia, Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, and the US. Argentine and Brazilian beef had good flavor but tougher than our US corn fed marbled beef.

Aussie wasn't bad and similar to grass fed.

Paraguayan beef was lean as all get out and strong flavor. However they certainly had access to sugar cane and other high sugar content grasses that could have fattened up the beef.

You should. Markets have them picked early so they can withstand the rigors of transportation.

In your garden you can pick them when they are fully ripe and to delicate to transport without bruising.

Never again will I feed chickens fish protein, unless I can give them a break in attempt to allow their fat to clean out prior to butcher!

years ago, a friend, new hunter, went with us duck hunting.

he shot two mergansers & of course my robo black lab, retrieved them.

guy asked how to cook them, told him you can't.

asked me to smoke them for him.....

marinated then in diesel fuel, lacquer thinner, paint thinner, bourbon & tequila.....then smoked them....

friend spit the chit out....still tasted like nasty fish...

dogs chewed on it for a bit and left it alone...

I used to do a lot of duck hunting. One of the main reasons I quit was I never learned to cook them correctly. Dabbler or diver, still tasted like chit.

What the chickens eat makes a HUGE difference. We have two flocks, our prestige flock of Brahma's and Silkies and then the other ones who are mixed bantams, retired Americans, and a Wyandotte or two.

Anyhow the prestige flock gets earthworms, mealworms, crushed oyster shells, and chickens feed. The other ones roam around and eat whatever they find. The insect feeders have consistently bigger eggs (also Brahmas are quite a bit bigger) and have a strongest flavor, but really good. The wild ones have random sized eggs and if they get into nasty stuff (horse poop) their eggs are gross.

It's interesting to say the least but I'll never eat an egg from the store again. They taste like nothing now.
