Welcome to cooking with Kenobi! This thread will have some of my most favorite dishes and meals this side of the Milky Way Galaxy! If you would like to share a recipe feel free if you are an experienced cook or chef. Please no copy and paste of other people’s recipes. These are all home made from heart to your table!
As the great Marco Pierre White would say, Its your choice! You can tweak these and make them your own. When cooking remember there is no real right way when dealing with the flavors you like. I will help you break those chains of I need the exact this and that. Sometimes a little dash and a spin is all it needs!
I started cooking at a very young age, my grandmother was a great chef and I was always interested in how she did things. So I watched and I learned. And now I am here to pass that knowledge on. Cooking is a skill and hobby that you should never underestimate. The pure magic of being able to prepare something that won’t make you have to go through all that toilet paper you bought for the beer bug! The essence of life is sitting down with friends and family over a good meal. Or just to whip something up before the big game. Or to give the wife a hand once in a while when she is tired. (Just don’t do it to good or she is going to expect you to take over, we can’t be having that now.) Good ole Kenobi troll ladies calm down.
So now that we are up and running stay tuned for my first dish. Gamorrean Pork Ribs (Fall off the bone style) W/ Custom style BBQ sauce.
First you going to need to slay yourself a healthy Gamorrean. They are very slow and dumb. Or you can just pick some up at the store
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours, 30 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours
Makes: one rack of 13 ribs
one rack of pork baby back ribs
1/4 cup dry rub I can train you in the ways of the RUB! (You know you want it)
barbeque sauce Your choice! Or you can use mine which I will post on my next post with the Kenobi Rub. (Just don’t #metoo me okay.. )
Preheat oven to 300° F.
I leave some fat on those babies for a little extra flavor! Peel the silver skin off the back of the ribs – lift with a sharp knife and grab with a paper towel to remove.
Cut ribs into individual pieces following the bone. (Don’t go cutting yourself now let the knife do the work, No light sabers)
Rub ribs all over with Yellow mustard, this is called a binding agent. This helps your RUB bind to the ribs so it don’t just fall off!
Coat ribs with dry rub. Place meat side down in large baking pan, & cover tightly with foil, shiny side out.
Bake in the oven for 2 1/2 hours.
Remove from oven & pour off liquid. (Watch out for that steam now, it is going to be hot! Nothing worse than a steam burn.)
Brush bbq sauce over all sides of ribs.
Oven: To finish ribs in the oven, set oven to broil and return ribs to the same middle oven rack, uncovered, basting and broiling about 5 minutes per side, watching so they don’t burn. They will be so tender, it’s best to turn them using gloved hands. Or if force sensitive use the FORCE! (If foil starts to burn, transfer ribs to a clean sheet of foil for broiling)
Remember the deal. If you cook, she cleans. Just like God intended!
Kenobi’s DRY Rub Ah yeah.. the sensual touch of a JEDI, and remember it’s your choice!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Makes: Makes about 1/4 cup
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons chili powder (not powdered chili)
2 teaspoons sweet paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves (not ground oregano)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
I have added the recipe that will be a bit more “candy” sweet. How sweet is up to you. When you are cooking you are tasting as you go. You have to understand that cooking comes from the soul and the heart. Always be sure to add a smile and to give it a good balance be sure to tell that RUB that its your little bitch and you own. Make it your own. This is just simply a base to start with.
One day you too can cook like a JEDI.
Just beware, The Burned side of the force is a dangerous path that can lead to many a distasteful guests and friends.
I have a breakfast sandwich that I’ve made since the 90’s, I improved on it when the george foreman grill came out
3 eggs wisked into a bowl, add what ever ingredients you want to
2 slices of sourdough bread or what ever bread you prefer
4 slices of Turkey bacon or pork bacon
cook the 4 slices on the foreman grill, cooks the eggs into a omelette you can fold, after removing the bacon, place 2 slices on each slice of bread, place the eggs on it, put it all together and place in the foreman grill for 3 minutes and ready to eat
“Tear Gas” Air Popped Popcorn
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Makes: Makes about 14 cups; roughly 320 calories
1/2 Cup Popcorn Kernels (I go with Orville’s)
Pam or Butter Substitute Spray
McCormick’s Jalapeno and Garlic Powder Seasoning
You’ll need an air Popper, I go with Presto brand machines. Basically, you load up the machine with kernels per the instructions and get it running. Have a 14 cup container or larger to catch the popcorn! Have a lid or plastic wrap on the side.
As the popcorn is coming out you take a chance and spray the little guys with your Pam/butter sub, obviously the more you use the more oil flavor you’ll have but be careful! If you happen to spray into the machine you might turn your air popper into a flame thrower so GL!
After the machine is off and you’ve applied first aid, start to add your seasoning into the container. If you thought, “gee, I should have added it to the container before hand”-Wrong! Air poppers have a schcoop to blow the popcorn out of the machine. That air also likes to kick up seasoning at the bottom of the container and perfectly fling it into your eyes. I guess if you want to pregame the Tear Gas effect then do what you want! There’s no rules!
Top the container and give it a little shake, or two, it’s 2020 and you can shake it as much as you like. Shake it with your friends and family! Once you’ve gotten that out of the way, you can now roll the dice and see if you applied a good amount of oil for the seasoning to stick to. If so, you’ll enjoy a fun, low calorie dense food that’s finger licking good! If not, you my friend will enjoy what it’s like to take your mask off in a gas chamber in basic training! Depending on how much seasoning you used, jalapeno garlic will be doing a shoryuken to your uvula/sinuses you will obviously get reported for COVID from your neighbors from the lung you’ll be hacking up. Don’t do it on a skype call!!!! You’ve been warned!
Sounds great! I have had a few Breakfast sandwiches that go along these lines. This is one of the things I wanted to express in this cooking thread. You can do it your way and make it your choice!
Looks very tasty from just the recipe! Thanks for sharing ArmyGuyDan!
That looks like one tasty snack CerebralCrit! Great for movie night or just watching the shit show we call reality today!
Thanks for sharing this.
Today we are going to keep things cheap and simple.
Kenobi’s Hobo meal / Tatooine cave style
All you are going to need is some Hamburger meat, I suggest the 80% fat ground chuck over the leaner ground chuck as this one will use those juices to help the cooking process of the potatoes and onions.
1 lbs Ground Chuck 80% fat/ Not lean
1 white onion
1 small bag of baby carrots or 3 carrot stalks
Aluminum foil roll
Optional: you can add just about any veggie to these hobo meals: Peas, Green beans, broccoli, ect. The Greens are your choice!
You can add cheese and or anything else you like in a Hobo Meal. You can put the Kitchen Sink in there if you like!
Take your ground chuck and say.. Hello there! The meat needs to know you care. Season as you like. Salt and Pepper is enough for this.
You can always add your choice of spices to this Hobo meal. Take that pound and make two large patties, place to the side on a sheet of A. Foil.
Make sure your A. Foil is about the size of a large plate, you are going to be taking the meat and veggies and wrap it up.
Bring pot of water to a boil. Put your baby carrots into boiling water for about 5-8 minutes. You want to pre cook these baby carrots a little bit as they will not get fully cooked by just placing them into A. Foil sheet and baking it. Be sure afterwards to drain off the water on your carrots.
While those carrots are going you want your potato and onion cut into wedges. 4 wedges will be fine. On each.
You can slice your onions or you can wedge them. Really it is your choice.
Pre heat the oven to 350
Now take your meat patties put on the bottom. Carrots, onions, potato over top. Careful of the carrots they could be hot!
Now wrap them all up in the Al. Foil and place on a cooking sheet for about 1 hour. After one hour you can carefully open the foil and stick potato with a knife. If they are soft your are good to go!
Pull out a plate and transfer from foil to the plate! Drain off any excess drippings from the meat.
You can now enjoy a fairly quick and easy meal. You can feed a family for about 10-15$ on this Hobo Meal.
People use to cook these on engine blocks and or in firepits back in the day. It can be done various ways and styles! Make this Hobo your own tonight!
CHEF NOTES: With the upcoming issues we face as a culture I would highly suggest you learning how to cook. Not only for the pleasure of these things, but also for the safe side. Do you really trust people preparing your meals in this day and age?
Me personally I do not go out to eat anymore, I have not eaten out in years. I worked in the kitchen for over 20 years. You would be sick if you knew the kinds of stuff that goes on in most kitchens. And I took great care and pride in my work, and even still I was on the line about this stuff.
Never would I serve something that I wouldn’t eat myself or serve to my family. Just remember I am an old Man, and the way I see the world is considered Out dated and gone. Keep that in mind when eating out next time. The world I grew up in and lived in is gone. The values I once held dear are no longer the morals or standing of today.
do you have the recipe for the bigot sandwich from TLOU2
Okay here you go. The Bigot Sandwhich (inspired by TLOU2)
Get out that White bread! You are going to need to stale ass pieces of white bread. (No wheat or Rye bread you racist!)
Go to the fridge and pull out 2 slices of Bologna. While at the fridge you going to want to pull out some Mayo too.
When you reach your prep station you will want to slather on that Mayo! Make it thicc! Be sure to call that Mayo a dumb ass honkey to ensure maximum hatred within your meal. While at the same time you want to make sure you get the mustard out and write over the mayo the most bigoted word you can think of!
Remember it is your choice!
Slap that Bologna on those slices of bread and you are ready for your bigot sandwich!
