The Chew May 29 2013
Recapo Update: Here are the segments from today’s show:
On The Chew May 29 2013, Carla Hall shows us her chocolate popcorn balls recipe, and Michael Symon and Clinton Kelly show us their beef jerky chicken and biscuits recipe. Yvette Nicole Brown of television series Community co-hosts while kids at the tasting table pass final judgement on a grilled cheese cook-off between Mario Batali and Daphne Oz.
The Chew: Beef Jerky Chicken Recipe
With Michael Symon and Clinton Kelly showing us their beef jerky chicken recipe tomorrow, it makes sense to maybe throw a few jerky drying tips your way to get you ready for the show.
When selecting your cuts to be used for the jerky, always select the leanest cuts of meat, because far can become rancid, which defeats to purpose of this particular snack’s longevity. You also want to freeze any wild game meat that you have to kill off any potential parasites that the animal could have been carrying.
When oven-drying the meat, you can place the strips directly on the oven racks as long as you put a piece of tin foil under them to catch the drips that will result. A cake-rack placed on the inside of a foil-lined cookie sheet will also work, but you may need increased air circulation to make this technique work.
The Chew: Grilled Cheese Cook-Off
Mario Batali is mostly known for his gourmet cooking, but I can imagine that Daphne Oz might have mentioned it in her book Relish: An Adventure in Food, Style, and Everyday Fun, so she might have the upper hand in this competition.
Being that grilled-cheese sandwiches comprised a large part of my diet as a kid, I feel as if I would have been an excellent addition to the judging table.
