I read this earlier and figured I needed to cook bacon to go with the pork-n-beans and steak I was cooking for supper.

Ya gotta have somethin' to go with the Bacon Wrapped Cheese Fries,right?

Add to a pound of 80/20 ground beef:garlic powder,salt,pepper and Creole seasoning to taste.Grill to perfection.
Top with your cheese of choice,Vidalia onion and bacon jam on a good bun.

Bacon jam:fry bacon,remove from grease,put in Vidalia onion,brown sugar,deglaze with coffee,add a pinch of salt and pepper.Put bacon back in and cook until onion is very soft,drain.

I love having Alan Benton just down TN411 from home... best bacon on the planet! His sausage is killer too. Even makes his own prosciutto. Such a cool old man, still plugging at 95!

Since Jim's Smokin' Que is closed for the season, Mrs. Anthony and I went for a drive down to the city today to Fox Brother's BBQ and got a rib.

Yes, one rib. And we shared it. And couldn't finish it. I guess we could have if we hadn't already eaten a large order of fried pickles and pork belly burnt ends.

Dayum! I mean, Dayyy-Yummm!! Shared one rib and didn't finish?? That aint like you, man. Wonder how many ribs Froggy could mow through like that.

Today's project in the kitchen is preparing Cuban sandwiches. From scratch, even the bread.

Here youn's go- this is the best Cuban bread recipe we've found. My honey has mastered it- without authentic Cuban bread it's just not right. And- somehow this vid came up after Ferris Bueller... how nice. I'm feel love with homemade Cubans... made by my homemade Dominican. ; )





Pan Cubano -- Cuban Bread
By Three Guys From Miami
Prep time: 2 hours
Cook time: 18 minutes
Total time: 2 hours 18 minutes
Yield: 1 large wide loaf
With a crisp crust on the outside and a lightly textured inside, a warm, fresh-baked loaf of Cuban bread is the next best thing to heaven.

INGREDIENTS:
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/4 cups warm water
2 cups bread flour (see instructions)
2 cups all-purpose flour (see instructions)
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup lard (melted in microwave)
2 tablespoons warm water (to brush on loaves before baking)
1. Grease a large bowl, and set aside.

2. Take a small bowl and dissolve the yeast and sugar in 1/4 cup of warm (110 degrees F) water. Place the bowl in a warm place and let it stand until it starts to foam and double in volume, about 10 minutes. If it doesn't foam and bubble, you have some bad yeast!

3. Meanwhile, measure out 1/4 cup of lard and place the lard in a Pyrex measuring cup or other suitable container. Heat in the microwave on high for about 90 seconds until melted.

4. Place the water/yeast/sugar mixture in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer. Add the rest of the warm water and the salt. Using the dough hook, mix on low speed until blended.

5. Take your measuring cup and dig in to the flour bag, scooping out two whole cups of each flour. Now the important part: in a separate bowl, sift together the two flours. Sifted flour has more volume than un-sifted flour, so you will use approximately 3 1/4 cups of sifted flour in the following steps.

6. Gradually add the flour mixture, a little at a time, to the wet ingredients in your mixer -- mixing constantly. At the same time you are adding flour, gradually pour in the melted lard. Keep adding a little flour and a little lard until all of the lard is added.

7. Continue adding more flour -- A LITTLE AT A TIME -- until you make a smooth and pliable dough. Try to add just enough flour to make the dough elastic -- just as much as necessary so that the dough hook barely cleans the sides of the bowl. Too much flour and your bread will be too dense! You will use approximately 3 1/4 cups of sifted flour to bring the dough to this point. (More or less, this is where the art of baking comes in!) Save any leftover flour mixture for rolling out the dough.

8. Now let the machine and the dough hook go to work kneading the dough. Set the mixer on a low speed and knead for about 3 to 4 minutes, no more! Your dough will be fairly sticky at this point.

9. NOTE: If you don't have a mixer with a dough hook, you can also do this the old fashioned way. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pound the dough ball down and knead by hand until the dough is smooth and elastic, about ten minutes.

10. Shape the dough into a ball and place it into that bowl you originally greased in the first step of this recipe, what was that, something like a week ago now? We know, we know -- bread making is a long and involved process!

11. Flip the dough ball a few times to grease it up on all sides. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and place in a warm place. (We like to pre-heat our oven to 160 degrees F and then turn it off, thus creating a perfectly warm environment for our rising bread.) Let the dough rise until it doubles in size -- about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

12. It's at this point in the process that you can usually find three guys, covered in flour, sitting by the pool with their feet up and enjoying a cold beverage. It's also about now when Raúl always asks, "Why didn't we just pick up a loaf of bread at the bakery?"

13. When you return from the pool, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board, using the leftover flour you have in the bowl. Sprinkle some flour on the dough and use a rolling pin to roll it out. We like to make a large loaf, shaped to fit our longest baking sheet diagonally -- about 20 inches long. So we try to roll out a 12 x 20-inch rectangle. Sprinkle more flour on the dough and turn it over a few times as you roll it out, to keep it from sticking to the rolling pin. The added flour at this rolling stage should take care of most of the stickiness of the dough.

14. Roll the dough up into a tightly rolled long cylinder, with a slight taper at both ends. Wet your fingers and pinch the loose flap of the rolled dough into the loaf, making a tight seam.

15. Grease a baking sheet and sprinkle lightly with cornmeal.

16. Place the loaf diagonally onto the baking sheet, seam side down. Dust the top with a little extra flour and cover very loosely with plastic wrap. (You don't want the rising dough to dry out or stick to the plastic wrap.)

17. Place in a warm spot and allow the loaf to stand and rise once again until it is about 2 1/2 times it's original size, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Cuban bread is wider than French bread, so expect your loaf to spread out quite a bit as it rises.

18. Preheat oven to 450º F. Place a pan of water on the lowest rack of the oven.

19. Use a sharp knife to cut a shallow seam down the middle of the top of the bread, leaving about two inches of uncut top on each end of the loaf.

20. Brush the top of the loaf with water and place in your preheated oven on the middle shelf. After about 5 minutes of baking, brush some more water on top of the bread.

21. Bake the loaf until it is light brown and crusty -- about 12 to 18 minutes total baking time.

22. We all know that oven temperatures do vary -- so keep an eye on it!


Baking Bread is an Art
Baking bread, any kind of bread, is truly an art. Baking a perfect bakery-quality loaf of Cuban bread is the ultimate accomplishment for any home bread baker. On the surface, Cuban bread seems so simple; it consists of just five main ingredients: flour, water, yeast, lard, and salt.
The challenge, however, is putting these simple ingredients together in exactly the right way. The goal is to create a loaf with a crisp crust on the outside and an airy, lightly textured inside.
The key to baking a great loaf of Cuban bread is in knowing exactly how much flour to use to bring the dough to the perfect consistency. Too much flour, and the bread will be too dense. Too little flour, and the dough won't rise properly, resulting in a very wide, flat loaf of bread!
If you don't mind a challenge, the quest for that perfect loaf of Cuban bread can be very rewarding.

We finished the rib today.

If I don't eat two large appetizers, I can finish the rib. I decided a couple years ago to start metering my intake in order to prevent the kind of death that befell my brother, who was one year younger than I am now when he dropped dead of a heart attack.

The picture of the rib really does not do it justice. It's easily 3 pounds, maybe more. It's like those ribs that flip over the car on the Flintstones.

Looks like a beef rib. Had one recently and it was really good. Had some not so good ones too, just like pork ribs. At least after you've been to Jims!

Yeah Fox Brothers is Texas style barbecue.

Brisket and this giant "short rib" are their specialties. They also have baby back ribs, pulled pork, etc... But I go there for the beef.

Maybe this March we can all take a day ride into the city if there is enough interest. They are open on Sundays after all.

Today I'm doing fried chicken, Blackberry Farm style. Bought a bag of their prep, working the recipe verbatim so far. Gonna do it in our new air fryer.

The Cuban bread had some flaws, still very tasty. My Dominican honey is so mad about it she's gonna make another batch.

Life is good.
