Pig Out Day 5

So for Pig Out Day 4, the recipe i will be posting tomorrow is a base Risotto! A skill everyone needs to learn properly and trust even just the base recipe is already deadly good (i ate 2 plates in shame yesterday). And the winner, who gave me the idea of doing a risotto is, one of my long time readers, MarvelousMom. I have some yummy Yemashita Yema Balls for you! If you haven’t tried them yet, they are soft pillowy sweets that are like pastillas de leche, just SO much better! email me: thefatkidinside05@gmail.com i hope you can pick them up at the Fort!

“What about risotto, Erwan? With not one but several kinds of mushrooms, parmesan cheese and saffron.”

I liked her comment because it showed me that she understood that a risotto was simply a base you can build on, which is why i wanted to show you guys how to make a solid foundation for all your ideas!

So what should i cook on my next Pig Out Day (This could be the name of a dish, a story, a recipe, a picture…etc)?

The person who hits my craving on the head and gives me some fun inspiration for the dish will obviously be credited when i do the video recipe and post in the following week. Just follow the theme and make sure your suggestion is something i can build on, or something you’ve always wanted to know, taste, make at home, etc.. Don’t forget to let the fat kids out, this is for pure enjoyment and indulgence! be creative! don’t give me things that are considered traditional dishes, because i like keeping tradtion traditional!

I have gift baskets in the making for the winners who suggest the recipe i decide to tackle!

The Theme this week is: Beef

Go nuts.

      Hi Erwan! I’ve been trying to follow a diet that cuts down carbs.. Can you teach me how to make the most guilt-free shepherd’s pie? Been craving this for weeks now. Thanks! :)

      I love making risotto! Two of my favorite risottos are a mix of earthy mushrooms (as MarvelousMom suggests) and another is butternut squash and sage with brown butter and lots of parm. I can’t wait to see what you put together!

      As for Pig Out Day 5…beef, beef, beef… what comes to mind when is corned beef, but not the kind you get out of a can. I’m talking the real deal: pickling beef brisket in tons of spices (mustard, cinnamon, coriander, cloves, pepper, ginger, etc.) and dousing it in a brine of salt and brown sugar. There are so many ways to serve corned beef: in a Reuben sandwich with melted cheese and onions, in a cabbage and potato stew over rice, in an omelet, corned beef hash with eggs, or in pasta with a creamy sauce.

      Hi Erwan :) Since it’s already “ber” months, I want to try something hot like soup. Can you make a soup recipe that has beef and corn (super love corns) plus some veggies! Uhm, as a teenager, i’m not really into vegetables :( but I also want to try it. haha. Thank you!

      Hey Erwann,

      Chef Gordon Ramsey has always said that it is one of the most difficult beef dishes: Beef Wellington. Perhaps you can make a Chef Erwann version.

      1. Arvi October 29, 2012 at 5:14 pm

        I agree. I always wonder how you do Beef Wellington Pinas style. Or yes, maybe Erwan style.

      My lolo used to cook “Tayuba”, it is a beef with tomato sauce and he would add a cup of sprite of 7up so the sauce would be somewhat sweet. I was thinking if you can add chili to balance the sweetness.

      Adobo is traditionally cooked using pork and/or chicken. How about adobong baka for a change? Perhaps with coconut milk to make it a perfect pig out recipe… Nah, I leave it to the master to experiment on it. :-)

      I love parties.

      I would love to have a nice assorted hors d’oeuvres of beef.

      Since in parties, hors d’oeuvres used to be so light, I think a beef hors d’oeuvres could satisfy your hunger in the middle of the party. Just to bring back the energy. :)

      To have a little twist on the beef try doing beef escalope with your choice of sauce like mornay or simply a cream sauce and with a creative side dish. Good luck!

      Hi Erwan,

      Beef, Im thinking something spicy, like beef kaldereta but i dont know how to get away with the tomato sauce (im acidic and I react to tomato sauce badly). I also like the taste and scent of rosemary in beef but i don’t know how to incorporate it unless, it’s grilled or fried. Plus the tenderness of roast beef. Can you all put that together?

      All the best! and more mouth-watering recipes to come :)

      PS: Im still waiting for your longganisa recipe.

      INDULGENT OLD-FASHIONED CORNED BEEF SANDWICH!

      I’m thinking grilled bread or even a butter croissant filled with layers of corned beef, dill/sauerkraut, maybe some onions and greens but most importantly, cheese ON cheese. You’ll need a toothpick. Your drink would then be a toasted marshmallow milkshake or any milkshake made by blending a slice of cake into the shake. yiiiiiiikes!

about THE FAT KID

I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
