I saw a reference to this recipe on Twitter and thought that I would take one for the team.
From the description:
It is one of the seven recipes in a little chapter I call, The Shit I Eat When I’m By Myself
I had a bag of frozen Chinese dumplings that Mrs J had found to be not worth their stuffing so I figured I would go for it.
Verdict: Meh. You definitely want to make these in the privacy of your own home.
At least the air roasting is true for the carrots, sprouts, and broccoli. The potatoes were boiled, smashed and then roasted on a tray below the basket with the other veggies. Everything was tossed with oil and kosher salt.
I set the temp at 350 to start and then bumped it to 375. They took about 13-14 minutes after it came to temp but I put everything in before it was fully pre-heated. I’m still feeling my way around cooking times, not ready yet to set and forget until the timer chimes.
I’ll be bummed when I run out of those candied jalapenos. The slaw is from a copycat KFC recipe. It’s a favorite of Mrs J. I’m torn between it and one using shredded cabbage and fresh peppers in a sweet and sour dressing. I think the vinegar slaw works better as a topping on fish or pulled pork. YMMV
This was just OK, it’s not going into the regular rotation. The lean ground beef really shines in these kinds of recipes, there is never any extra fat to get rid of.
