Food recipes for sharing
To HVAC techs out there who love to cook, care to share any nice recipes?
This is one of mine all time fav. The alio e olio:
250g of Spaghetti
3 stalks red chilli, either cut in strips or in pieces, with chilli seeds to enhance flavor
8 cloves garlic, flatten
seasonings and herbs
Pour water to in a cooking pot, add 2 table spoon of salts, 1 tablespoon of olive oil in water. Bring to boil. Add in pasta. Cook to al dente, drain but do not rinse in cold water as it will wash away the salt.
In a flat pan, add olive oil until it cover the whole pan bed. Then throw in the garlic and chilli, cover. Cook in low flame for about 3 mins, add in the cooked spaghetti and stir fry it to prevent sticking to pan. Stir fry for about 1 mins, add in favourite seasonings, herbs, cheese and serve.
For those chilli lovers, try 5 stalks for more spiciness.
Enjoy with an ice cold beer.
Another of my all time fav beer stew with beer.
4 pounds of beef cubes,
garlic, finely chopped
large onion, finely chopped
4 large potatoes, cubed,
2 pounds baby carrot
mix herb seasonings
1 can of guinness
add olive oil in pan heated up, add in garlic, onion and beef cubes, stir fry until brown about 5-6mins. In a pot, add in beef broth, beef cubes, salt cover and cook for 10 mins, stir occasionally. Add in the potatoes, carrots and mix herb seasonings cover and simmer for about 20mins. Finally pour in the whole can of guinness, stir and cover for about 1 min.
Serve with rice or bread.
Another one of my fav recipe, beer battered fish 'n' chips
4 slice of cod fish fillets,
parsley, finely chopped.
Mixed herbs and seasonings.
one can of Guinness.
mix flour, eggs and salt in a mixing bowl, then slowly pour in the beer while whisking the mixture, thoroughly. On a chopping board, sprinkle some flour, parsley and seasonings on it. Next, take the fillets run through with cold water, then and roll on the seasonings on both sides of it, then dipped it into the mixture. Then slowly lower the batter fish into the deep fryer, at 375 F, for 6 ~ 7mins.
Set the fryer back to 375 F, throw in the wedges and fry for about 7 mins. Next remove the wedges and let cool for about 1 min, while setting the temp up to 390 F. Once oil is heated back up, fry the wedges again for about 2 mins.
Serve with tartar sauce or malted vinegar.
This one sounds pretty good.

Just got this today from a counter-man at Johnstone, He said next time you make a batch of Chili, get a apple pie from McDonalds, remove the apples and add the rest to the chili, can't wait to try it!
