The Freeper Canteen Presents

A Regional and Ethnic Cooking Recipe Swap!


It’s cold outside! A perfect time to try new recipes! What’s your specialty? Come share it with us! Here’s a few to get us started!

From Mylife:

Albondigas(Mexican meatballs) soup or with chili gravy
Albondigas (Meatballs)
Although albondigas (Mexican meatballs) are usually served in soup, they make a nice appetizer or main dish , too.

* 1-1/2 pounds ground pork
* 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
* 2 large or 3 small garlic cloves, minced or put through a garlic press
* 2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, finely chopped
* 1/2 tsp ground coriander or coriander seed, toasted and ground
* 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
* 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, crumbled
* 1 tablespoon chili powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 2 tablespoons Masa Harina
* 1 large egg
* 2 quarts chicken broth or 2 cups Chili Gravy

Combine the ground pork with the onion, garlic, chiles, coriander, pepper, oregano, chili powder and salt, mixing well. Beat the Masa Harina into the egg until well incorporated. Then pour egg mixture over meat mixture and combine well.

For soup:
Form the meat mixture into 1-inch balls. Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a dutch oven or stockpot. Gently lower the meatballs into the broth and bring to a simmer. and add:
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin or 1/2 tsp. cumin seed
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. basil
3 sliced carrots
1/2 head cabbage, coarsely chopped
1 green pepper, sliced diagonally
1 (16 oz.) can tomatoes, chopped with juice Simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Garnish individual servings with chopped fresh cilantro.

For an appetizer or main dish:
Form the meat mixture into 2-inch balls. In a large skillet, fry the meatballs in 2 tablespoons corn oil, turning until browned on all sides. Remove meatballs from skillet and drain on paper towels. Drain grease from skillet. Return meatballs to skillet, add chili gravy, and simmer briefly until heated through.

Chili Gravy
This chili gravy is indispensable for enchiladas, tamales, and a host of other Tex-Mex dishes.


* 3 tablespoons melted shortening or lard
* 1 medium onion, finely chopped
* 1 large garlic clove, minced or put through a garlic press
* 1 tablespoon bacon drippings
* 1/4 cup good chili powder (preferably Gebhardt’s or your own homemade)
* 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
* 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, preferably Mexican
* 2 cups beef stock
* 2 cups water
* 1 tablespoon Masa Harina
* salt to taste


Over medium heat, sauté the onion and garlic in the oil until the onion is softened, but not browned. Stir in the bacon drippings, chili powder, cumin, oregano; then gradually add the beef stock and water, stirring well.

Simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes until mixture is slightly reduced and thickened. Mix the Masa Harina with a few tablespoons of water or the gravy, itself, and stir back into the gravy. Simmer for 10 minutes more. Taste the gravy and add salt only if you think it necessary.

Makes about 4 cups.

Note: A word about chili powder: The most-recommended chili powder in Texas is Gebhardt’s, and for good reason. Also, if you make your own chili powder and can get your hands on some dried chiles pasillas, make some pure ground pasillas, and you’ll have an extraordinary powder for Tex-Mex enchiladas. However, if neither is accessible to you, you can still make perfectly acceptable and delicious Tex-Mex enchiladas with McCormick’s or Durkee’s chili powder, or whatever it is that your store carries. If you know nothing whatsoever of chili powder or chiles, then my instructions to you are very simple: Buy a product called “chili powder” — not cayenne, not crushed red pepper, not ground red pepper.

From SandRat:

Southwestern Nacho Casserole

Prep 40 min Cook 7-8 hours for the slow cooker and then 15-20 minutes after that for the goodies to cook at 375.

2 boneless whole pork loin roasts (3-1/2 pounds ea.) 2 cup unsweetened apple juice 6 garlic cloves, minced 1 tsp salt 1 tsp Liquid Smoke, optional 2-1/2 cups barbecue sauce, divided 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar 2 TBLs honey 1 pkg (11 oz) tortilla chip scoops 1-1/2 cups frozen corn 1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped 1 medium red onion, chopped 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped 2 tsp lime juice 1 pkg (16 oz) process cheese (Velveeta), cubed 2 TBLs milk

Divide tortilla chips between to greased 13-in x 9-in x 2-in baking dishes; top with pork mixture. Combine the corn, beans, tomato, onion, cilantro, jalapeno and lime juice; spoon over the pork mixture.

From Ms B:
This is a wonderful Lobster Bisque Recipe from Cooks.Com:
Try it!

LOBSTER BISQUE

2 live chicken lobsters (1 lb. each)
1 onion, coarsely chopped
1 stalk celery, coarsely chopped 1 carrot, coarsely chopped
3 bay leaves
1/2 lb. butter
2 quarts water
1/4 cup flour
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup sherry
1/4 cup brandy
white pepper and salt, to taste

Place the lobsters in a large heavy pot. Cover with salted water. Bring to a boil and cook 5 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer 10 to 12 minutes more. Drain and plunge into cold water to arrest further cooking. Extract the meat, chop it and set it aside.
Place the lobsters’ remains in a roasting pan with the onion, celery, carrot, bay leaves and butter. Roast in a preheated 400°F oven for 45 minutes.

Remove from the oven and strain off the butter into a heavy saucepan. Place the remaining contents of the roasting pan into the 2 quarts water and boil until the liquid is reduced by half. Strain the stock.

Heat the butter in the saucepan. Add the flour and cook the roux for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the stock and blend well. Then add the cream, Sherry and brandy.

Simmer slowly for 30 minutes. Season with white pepper and salt to taste.

Strain the bisque and add the lobster meat.

Serve immediately.

Fast Feet
The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills. —Habakkuk 3:19

While in Chile for a Bible conference, I was resting at the hotel when a rugby match came on the television. Though I don’t fully understand rugby, I enjoy it and admire the courage it takes to play such a dangerous sport.

During the match, one of the French players was injured and had to be taken to the sidelines. As the trainers attended to him, the camera showed a closeup of his shoes. With a black marker the player had written the words: “Habakkuk 3:19” and “Jesus is the way.” Those expressions of faith and hope were a strong testimony of that young athlete’s priorities and values.

The verse cited on that rugby player’s shoes is not just one of heavenly hope and persevering faith. It is one of practical value—especially to an athlete dependent on speed for success. It says, “The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills.”

In all of life, we need the strength and supply of our God. He alone can give us “feet” that are swift and strong. He alone can equip us for all of the uncertainties of life, for He alone is our strength. With Paul, we can be assured: “My God shall supply all your need” (Phil. 4:19).

In You, O Lord, I take delight,
My every need You will supply;
I long to do what’s true and right,
So, Lord, on You I will rely.  —D. De Haan

We always have enough when God is our supply.

Bible in One Year: Numbers 28–30; Proverbs 24:1-12

Bless these windows shining bright, Letting in God's heav'nly light;

to all of you who have PRAYED FOR and/or SENT cards & "messages of support":

my Aunt is MUCH improved!!! (not only is her broken hip healing but as of 6PM yesterday, she has a new pacemaker implanted.)

her cardiac specialist & her orthopedist agree that she is doing MUCH better than anyone had reason to hope for. now, they say that we need to "feed her up; she's 30+ pounds UNDER-weight."

PRAYERS for her WORKED!!

our family's/my eternal THANKS to each of you.

Beautiful, beautiful thread.

Smootch Schatzi.

I don’t know if the net work is slow, or if Old Stone age combined with the network is the problem. Took 6 minutes to get a blank box to pop up so I could stuff words in.

Dark Rum...

Might as well throw in a few kitchen ingredients:

Daiquiri
2 ounces rum
1 ounce lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar

Shake with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a slice of lime. Never, never use Rose's lime juice in this drink. Robert Hess mixes one for the video camera.

Zombie
1 ounce lemon juice
1 ounce lime juice
1 ounce pinapple juice
1 tsp brown sugar
1 ounce passion fruit syrup
1 dash Angostura bitters
1 ounce gold rum
1 ounce 151 demerara rum
1 ounce rum

Dissolve sugar in juice. Shake with ice and pour into a collins glass. Garnish with a mint sprig. Hess mixes the Zombie.
