Braising meat is becoming some what of a trend. The benefits of it, however, are endless. It's a slow cooking technique that provides tender, juicy meat, regardless of the cut. The tricky part is actually trivial if you know what you're doing.Should we keep the recipe or make it our own? Should we add prosciutto? More slow cooker pork belly belly? Should we fill it with duck confit? Bind it together with meat glue?A lot of reviews that I have heard about Ninja said that they were disappointed in the food, service, pork belly in chinese, and so on. But I did not care. I always want to form my own opinion of places. I found things that I liked and only a few things that I didn't.Bourgeois and Pike are witnessing exactly what all sportsmen are seeing in their local waters. The bayou delta is losing roughly 500 acres of marsh and shoreline a year through saltwater intrusion, wind and rain erosion, and lack of silt replacement from the diverted Mississippi River. slow roast pork surplus and irresponsible resource management is threatening the survival of one of the few remaining truly wild coastal areas in the United States.In the Quick Fire Challenge, the chefs were tasked with using plantains to prepare two versions of fruituras (beach side fritters) for hostess, Padma and guest judge, famed Puerto Rican chef, Wilo Bennet. Stephanie mixed her plantain tortone with seared tuna for one variety and made a slow cooked pork belly and shrimp fritter with brown butter, basil, and lime for the other.For dessert, we tried the Trio S'mores, which is obviously not your average s'more! The homemade graham crackers were sweet and crunch, the fresh marshmellow melted to perfection and the milk chocolate ganache rich and decadent. The dessert also comes with graham-flavored homemade ice cream. Blue Bell, take note, this flavor is amazing!So who will walk away with the "Top Chef" title? As much as I loathe to even think it, the judges seem to have some kind of soft spot in their heart for Lisa. Her lousy attitude, temper tantrums, and poor performance have not once been noted. Could she go all the way? I'm afraid it is a distinct possibility. But I have to say the thought of such arrogance being rewarded makes me sick to my stomach.
