The Thought For Today

"My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four. Unless there are three other people." — Orson Welles

Labels: ,

Rec: Ultimate Cheeseburger

2 pounds cold freshly ground beef chuck, 80 percent lean
1/3 cup ice-cold water
3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 to 5 ounces cold Cheddar, Swiss, jack, or blue cheese, shredded or crumbled
Butter for the rolls (optional)
6 crusty yet soft rolls, such as kaiser, split


Light a grill for direct medium-high heat, about 425 degrees F. Using your hands and a light touch, mix together the beef, water, salt, pepper, and cheese. Gently shape into 6 patties no more than 1 inch thick. Refrigerate the burgers until the grill is ready. Brush the grill grate and coat with oil. Put the burgers directly over the heat, cover, and grill for 7 minutes, flipping after about 4 minutes for medium-done (150 degrees F, slightly pink). Add a minute per side for well-done. Avoid pressing down on the burgers, which squeezes out moisture and makes them dry. If you like, butter the rolls before grilling. Grill the rolls, cut sides down, directly over the heat until toasted, about 1 minute. If serving the burgers directly from the grill, serve on the buns. If the burgers will sit, even for a few minutes, keep the rolls and burgers separate until just before eating.

Serves 6

Rec: Meatball Subs

1 clove garlic
1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves
4 ozs Parmesan cheese, cut into chunks
1 medium onion, halved
1 lb lean ground beef or turkey
1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 egg, lightly beaten
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 cups tomato sauce or bottled spaghetti sauce
4 sub rolls



With a food processor running, put the garlic, parsley,
and Parmesan through the feed tube. When they are
finely chopped, add the onion and process until grated.
Transfer to a large bowl. Add the beef, bread crumbs,
egg, salt, and pepper. Form the mixture into 12
meatballs. In a large saucepan, bring the tomato
sauce to a boil. Add the meatballs and let the sauce
return to a boil. Simmer gently for 30 minutes,
turning the meatballs in the pan, or until they are
cooked through. Halve the sub rolls, though not all
the way through. Toast them until golden. Spoon
the meatballs into the rolls, add sauce, and serve
at once.


Serves 4
If not serving all at once, refrigerate meatballs and sauce
Can be reheated in microwave
