Slow cooked veal chops - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Slow cooked veal chops

    My oven is always at exactly 80 C (176 F) in the evening two days after firing... and yesterday I finally got everything together to try this low-heat cooking thing I read about.

    The chops were seared for two minutes on each side, and then put in the oven in a pre-heated pot (without a lid) for 50 minutes. At precisely 80 C, did I mention that?

    They were cooked to perfection. Even if the one with the mushroom sauce did try to run away...

    Thanks for that Frances; nice looking protein on classy china.
    Our oven stays a little warmer, probably because air temp here is higher.
    Had pizza Friday, then weekend away. Left-over pizza reheated Sun. evening, then smoked salmon on Monday.
    (Salmon was "brined" in 2:1:1 soy sauce:water:raw sugar +dash of 5spice for 4hrs, then smoked @70*C for maybe 45mins using paperbark). Top tucker.
    I've been fiddling wih slow-cooked meat for some time now, and apart from destroying some lovely fish (too hot for too long), have found the WFO to be the duck's guts.
    All those wasted years without a WFO!
    Knocked up my first paella last night. (Thanks XJim). Cooked inside, but what a top meal when camping. Simple and simply superb.
    FB is a class act. Thanks eh.

      Jeff, good to have you back on the forum!

      I think the insulation on my oven could probably be a a bit better, but its so cool for cooking in, I'm not grumbling! But low temp cooking is something that hasn't worked out too well for me so far, which is why I decided to post this one with exact temperature and cooking times for a change.

      So this smoked salmon... what is this "paperbark" whereof you speak? A small fire of, ehrm, (wild stab in the dark here) bark? To provide some smoke but no heat? Did you put the salmon in a dish, or hang it up somehow? And did you sear it before putting it in the oven at all? Sounds really tasty, but I need more info before I'll try it...

        G'day Frances.
        It's the bark from some species of Melaleuca trees (restricted pretty much to Australia I believe). Can strip off quite large pieces, then peel off thin layers. Used to wrap food (esp fish) in flash restaurants. (Or when camping: life's tough at the lower end of the food chain, yes?) Hahaha. Ssshh!
        This is the first time I've used it as a dedicated smoke source, and the mild result was pretty good.
        Suspended the fish pieces, but should have placed a plate beneath them. (My piece fell: lucky it wasn't the Boss's bit, eh). No searing.
        Will do some more soon, and take more note of cooking time and temp. Others may offer advice too, which would be most welcome.
        Got to bolt.
        Stay safe over there in Spring.
