One of America’s Favorites – Half-Smoke

February 8, 2021 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

A half-smoke is a “local sausage delicacy” found in Washington, D.C., and the surrounding region. Similar to a hot dog, but usually larger, spicier, and with more coarsely-ground meat, the sausage is often half-pork and half-beef, smoked, and served with herbs, onion, and chili sauce.

Halfsmokes from Weenie Beenie

The etymology of “half-smoke” possibly comes from the original half-pork, half-beef composition, the ingredients and smoked method of preparation. Another possible explanation is that the texture and flavor is halfway between smoked sausage and a regular hot dog. Yet another explanation is that it refers to cooks cutting the sausage in half when grilling. Composition of the sausages varies by brand and some brands even make more than one kind. A half-smoke can be half pork, half beef, all beef, or anything in between. It can be steamed instead of smoked. The company thought to be the originator of the sausage, Briggs & Company, was sold by its owner, Raymond Briggs, in 1950 without clarifying the origin of the name. The products sold under the name generally have a genuine or artificial smoke flavoring and coarser texture than a regular hot dog; these are the key features that distinguish them.

The “original” half-smoke is considered to be the sausage distributed by D.C.’s Briggs and Co. meatpackers, originating in around 1950, though Raymond Briggs started selling his half-smokes in about 1930. Eventually, Briggs was sold to another meat distributor, where, by some accounts, the quality of the meat declined.

Numerous hot dog carts in Washington, D.C., sell steamed half-smokes, with those on Constitution Avenue catering to tourists and those on Pennsylvania Avenue and many other hot dog carts throughout the downtown area serving federal employees. Half-smokes are the “official dog” of the Washington Nationals. The most prominent location is often cited as Ben’s Chili Bowl in Washington’s U Street neighborhood, which has long been a center of Black Washington, and was an essential stop for President-elect Barack Obama in 2009.

Another popular location for half-smokes is the Weenie Beenie in South Arlington, Virginia, located near the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park trail. Founded in 1950, it pre-dates Ben’s Chili Bowl. Among newer purveyors is Meats & Foods, on Florida Avenue just east of Ben’s Chili Bowl, which makes its own handmade version of the sausage.

Making Chili……….

Serve your chili – The best bowl of chili is even better when you top it with fresh flavors. Sour cream and shredded cheese are classic, but we also love using pungent green onions, spicy pickled jalapenos, herbaceous cilantro, acidic lime, creamy avocado, oyster crackers or crunchy tortilla chips.

Some other classic options include fresh garlic, roasted bell peppers, and sauteed onions. The vegetables will add a noticeable crunch and pop of color to your recipe. Herbs like cilantro or oregano can also enhance the flavor of the dish. Elevate your chili recipe by adding an extra layer of flavor. And with this cold weather we have what would be better than a big bowl of Homemade Chili!

BUFFALO BEANS
Recently, a customer (thank you Suzanne) sent me a recipe for cowboy beans. It was a recipe that I was very familiar with as a kid – which we called “Hamburger Beans”. It was often dinner, or served as a side dish during outdoor cookouts. I took her suggestions, along with notes from my mother’s recipe from years back and came up with Buffalo Beans. It’s good-ole-fashioned, stick to your ribs food. A good hunger remover after a big day. Approved by Wild Idea’s Harvest Crew!

Ingredients:

1 – pound Ground Buffalo
2 – tablespoons olive oil
2 – onions, chopped
4 – cloves garlic, chopped
2 – teaspoons salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – tablespoon cumin
2 – teaspoons coriander
2 – teaspoons chili powder
1 – teaspoon oregano
½ – teaspoon smoked paprika
1 – 8 ounce can roasted and chopped green chilies
1 – cup ketchup
¼ – cup mustard
½ – cup maple syrup
½ – cup strong coffee
2 – cans beans, rinsed
Green onions or shredded cheddar cheese

Preparation:

1 – In a heavy pot over medium high heat, heat oil and crumble in ground buffalo meat and add the onions, garlic and dry seasonings. Push the meat around in the pan breaking up the meat pieces and incorporating the spices. Cook until the meat is browned, about 10 minutes.
2 – Add the remaining ingredients and stir to incorporate. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to low and simmer until desired consistency is reached.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – JILL and JULIA’S BISON BOURGUIGNON

January 20, 2021 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment

This week’s for the Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is – JILL and JULIA’S BISON BOURGUIGNON. This one is made with Wild Idea Buffalo Stew Meat along with a host of great ingredients and spices. You can find this recipe and purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage along with all the other Wild Idea Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2021! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

JILL and JULIA’S BISON BOURGUIGNON
I have made a couple of variations of this amazingly delicious, classic dish, but after reading Julia and Julia a few years back, I had to check out Julia Child’s recipe in, Mastering The Art of French Cooking. My modifications to Julia’s recipe were based on using 100% grass-fed bison, my personal taste, and the steps I thought unnecessary. Specific changes made; I omitted the bacon, as I feel the smokiness overwhelms the dish and added butter for additional flavor and fat. I also used homemade buffalo broth, but in a pinch have used organic beef or chicken broth/stock, and added celery and brandy. Although a bit more extensive, I thought it was worth the extra steps. *However, I have noted in the recipe one-pot shortcuts. Recipe can be made ahead and reheated for entertaining convenience! Fabulous!

Ingredients for Bourguignon: (Serves 6 to 8)
2 – pounds Wild Idea Buffalo Stew Meat
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – teaspoon salt
3 – tablespoon olive oil
1 – tablespoon unsalted butter
1 – carrot, quartered
1 – onion, quartered
1 – celery stalk, quartered
1 – ounce brandy
4 – cups red wine (Bordeaux, Burgundy, or Chianti)
1 – cup buffalo broth, or organic beef or chicken broth
1 – teaspoon thyme
1 – teaspoon rosemary leaves, finely chopped
1 – teaspoon basil leaves
2 – bay leaves
3 – cloves garlic, minced
1 – tablespoon tomato paste
1 – tablespoon arrowroot or cornstarch, or more per your thickness preference
¼ – cup sherry
¼ – cup parsley, chopped fine

Ingredients for Mushrooms and Onions:
18 – Small White Onions
1 ½ – tablespoons each Butter & Olive Oil
¼ – cup buffalo or other stock
¼ – cup red wine
4 – parsley sprigs, 1 bay leaf, ½ tsp. thyme
1 – pound mushrooms, quartered
2 – tablespoon butter
1 – tablespoon olive oil

Preparation:
For Bison Bourguignon:
1 – Pre-heat oven to 325*.
2 – Rinse bison meat and pat dry, removing all dampness with paper towels. Season meat with salt and pepper.
3 – In a heavy stockpot, over medium heat add one tablespoon of the olive oil.
4 – Increase heat to medium high and brown the meat in 3 to 4 batches. Do not hurry to turn, allow the meat to brown. This was tedious, but worth it. Add additional olive oil before each batch as needed.
5 – Remove the last batch of meat from the pan and drain any oil left in the pan. Add the butter, and the quartered vegetables and sauté vegetables for 4 minutes.
6 – Add the brandy to stockpot and carefully tilt to flame. Or, cover the pot for a minute if you do not want the brandy to flame.
7 – Return browned meat to stockpot, and add 3 cups red wine, stock, herbs, garlic, and tomato paste. Bring to a simmer. Cover and place in pre-heated oven.
8 – Braise bison for 1 hour or until the meat is tender.
9 – Remove stockpot from oven and discard vegetables. Return meat with juices to the stovetop over medium high heat and bring to a simmer.
10 – Mix the remaining cup of red wine with the thickening ingredient and whisk until smooth.
11 – Slowly stir into the Bourguignon. Adjust thickness as desired.
12 – Season sauce to taste and stir in the sherry right before serving.

For Onions – Prepare while Bourguignon is in the oven:
*For Shortcut: Add the onions and mushrooms directly to the stockpot in step 5 and omit the quartered onion. Do not discard the onions & mushrooms when discarding other quartered vegetables in step 9.

1 – In an oven proof sauté pan over medium heat, add butter and oil, and let come to a bubble.
2 – Add onions, tossing to brown evenly.
3 – Add the stock, wine and herbs and bring to a simmer.
4 – Transfer the sauté pan with the onions to the oven and bake for 40 minutes or until liquids have evaporated.
5 – Remove from oven and set aside until ready to serve. Reheat if needed. *Or for shortcut add to the Bourguignon after cooking.
For Mushrooms:

1 – In saucepan over medium heat, add butter and oil, and let come to a bubble.
2 – Add quartered mushrooms. Toss the pan, browning the mushrooms on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. Reheat with onions if needed before serving. *Or for shortcut add to the Bourguignon after browning.
3 – To assemble: Plate the prepared pasta, potatoes, or rice and ladle on the Bourguignon, then place the onions & mushrooms on top and sprinkled with parsley. Julia recommends accompanying with Minted, Buttered Peas, but most often I serve a nice green salad, before or after the Bourguignon.

One of America’s Favorites – Cheesesteak Sandwich

A cheesesteak sandwich with Cheez Whiz

A cheesesteak (also known as a Philadelphia cheesesteak, Philly cheesesteak, cheesesteak sandwich, cheese steak, or steak and cheese) is a sandwich made from thinly sliced pieces of beefsteak and melted cheese in a long hoagie roll. A popular regional fast food, it has its roots in the U.S. city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The cheesesteak was developed in the early 20th century “by combining frizzled beef, onions, and cheese in a small loaf of bread”, according to a 1987 exhibition catalog published by the Library Company of Philadelphia and the Historical Society of Pennsylvania.

Philadelphians Pat and Harry Olivieri are often credited with inventing the sandwich by serving chopped steak on an Italian roll in the early 1930s. The exact story behind its creation is debated, but in some accounts, Pat and Harry Olivieri originally owned a hot dog stand, and on one occasion, decided to make a new sandwich using chopped beef and grilled onions. While Pat was eating the sandwich, a cab driver stopped by and was interested in it, so he requested one for himself. After eating it, the cab driver suggested that Olivieri quit making hot dogs and instead focus on the new sandwich. They began selling this variation of steak sandwiches at their hot dog stand near South Philadelphia’s Italian Market. They became so popular that Pat opened up his own restaurant which still operates today as Pat’s King of Steaks. The sandwich was originally prepared without cheese; Olivieri said provolone cheese was first added by Joe “Cocky Joe” Lorenza, a manager at the Ridge Avenue location.

Cheesesteaks have become popular at restaurants and food carts throughout the city with many locations being independently owned, family-run businesses. Variations of cheesesteaks are now common in several fast food chains. Versions of the sandwich can also be found at high-end restaurants. Many establishments outside of Philadelphia refer to the sandwich as a “Philly cheesesteak”.

Description
Meat

A cheesesteak from Pat’s King of Steaks with Cheez Whiz and onions

The meat traditionally used is thinly sliced rib-eye or top round, although other cuts of beef are also used. On a lightly oiled griddle at medium temperature, the steak slices are quickly browned and then scrambled into smaller pieces with a flat spatula. Slices of cheese are then placed over the meat, letting it melt, and then the roll is placed on top of the cheese. The mixture is then scooped up with a spatula and pressed into the roll, which is then cut in half.

Common additions include sautéed onions, ketchup, hot sauce, salt, and black pepper.

Bread

In Philadelphia, cheesesteaks are invariably served on hoagie rolls. Among several brands, perhaps the most famous are Amoroso rolls; these rolls are long, soft, and slightly salted. One source writes that “a proper cheesesteak consists of provolone or Cheez Whiz slathered on an Amoroso roll and stuffed with thinly shaved grilled meat,” while a reader’s letter to an Indianapolis magazine, lamenting the unavailability of good cheesesteaks, wrote that “the mention of the Amoroso roll brought tears to my eyes.” After commenting on the debates over types of cheese and “chopped steak or sliced”, Risk and Insurance magazine declared “The only thing nearly everybody can agree on is that it all has to be piled onto a fresh, locally baked Amoroso roll.”

Cheese

American cheese, Cheez Whiz, and provolone are the most commonly used cheeses or cheese products put on to the Philly cheesesteak.

White American cheese, along with provolone cheese, are the favorites due to their mild flavor and medium consistency. Some establishments melt the American cheese to achieve the creamy consistency, while others place slices over the meat, letting them melt slightly under the heat. Philadelphia Inquirer restaurant critic Craig LaBan says “Provolone is for aficionados, extra-sharp for the most discriminating among them.” Geno’s owner, Joey Vento, said, “We always recommend the provolone. That’s the real cheese.”

Cheez Whiz, first marketed in 1952, was not yet available for the original 1930 version, but has spread in popularity. A 1986 New York Times article called Cheez Whiz “the sine qua non of cheesesteak connoisseurs.” In a 1985 interview, Pat Olivieri’s nephew Frank Olivieri said that he uses “the processed cheese spread familiar to millions of parents who prize speed and ease in fixing the children’s lunch for the same reason, because it is fast.” Cheez Whiz is “overwhelmingly the favorite” at Pat’s, outselling runner-up American by a ratio of eight or ten to one, while Geno’s claims to go through eight to ten cases of Cheez Whiz a day.

In 2003, while running for President of the United States, John Kerry made what was considered a major faux pas when campaigning in Philadelphia and went to Pat’s King of Steaks and ordered a cheesesteak with Swiss.
