Good Soups In Contest And Sunday Dinner..



Saturday, I participated in a small soup cook-off. Literally, all the soups were good, and different from each other! My Mac-N-Cheeseburger soup finished middle of the pack- even though it was the only one that was eaten down to the bottom of the pot! A couple of bar regulars won 1st and 2nd.. go figure! Still, a decent turn-out, with all enjoying hot soup on a cold day..
Today, I marinated a couple of pork tenderloins in an Oriental flavor, and served with what has become our favorite rice- organic brown! Marinate was rice vinegar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, garlic, onion, and sesame oil. Also in the marinate was my "go to" out of the bottle sauce- Tiger sauce! This stuff is good as a shrimp dipping sauce, chicken BB-Q sauce, or great with pork also.. try some, you'll like it! Plain old chocolate brownies for dessert.. I wish Super Bowl would start earlier...

Yum! Organic brown rice is way good--and very good for you too!! :)

Today I'm bringing beef for beef kabobs (marinating in soy sauce, paprika, and finely chopped garlic), and chicken for chicken kabobs (just marinated in a simple teriayki glaze) to my parents house, veggies, and chocolate covered strawberries for dessert. I think we're all geared up.

I wish it started at one or two but thats morning in the west....I need to try that tiger sauce...

Jeanne said...

If yours was the only one eaten to the bottom of the pot, I'd say you won, regardless of who took home the prize.

Kate said...

The chili cookoff here in AA is much like that. Yours gets eaten to the bottom, but the one that people can't take more than a bite of without sweating is the one that wins. Hrmph.

And do we get the recipe? Please?

Doc- Quite a bit left- what to make Monday out of it...
Snowniece- We just stayed home and watched the game..
DogB- Kind of sweet, hot, and slightly Oriental in flavor..
Jeanne- Everybody knew who made what, so it wasn't too fair!
Kate- Condensed tomato soup- big can, jar of cheddar cheese sauce, can of diced tomatoes, 1/2 big can of milk, 1-1/2lbs of browned ground beef(1/2 large onion chopped with it), sauteed sliced mushrooms, dash of hot sauce to taste, and extra parmesan cheese finely grated. In crock pot until heated through..

Hi,

Lee :)

K said...

At least you had fun and your soup was eaten.

Sounds like a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

buffalodick said...

Akelamalu said...

Shame you didn't win the soup cook-off Buff. :(

I made beef & beetroot casserole, mashed sweet potato with garlic and sugarsnap peas tonight - I can still taste it mmmmmmmmm.

Tanya Kristine said...

i'm sorry. that sounds delicious! mac & cheeseburger soup? I'da voted #1 for you BD.

Marjie said...

I wish Superbowl would start sooner, too, but only so it would end sooner. My little guys always skip the morning after, because I just can't get them up that early!

Kate said...

I was going to say - where's the MAC? But you told me. All is well with the world and I'm definitely making it.

buffalodick said...

UrbanV- What is a Job Jonnie?
Ake- Sounds awful good!
Tanya- Thanks, nice lady!
Margie- I think in America, it should be a National day off!
Kate- oops, again.. it really makes the soup!

deb said...

do you share recipes? the soup would be a hit with megan.

we love hoisin anything and brownies anytime!

happy Monday!

Just telling it like it is said...

At first glance I thought the sauce was some new beer...
Yikes to much beer yesterday...
Looks yummy!

Roger said...

Hope it was a great time Buff!

Belle said...

Marinaded pork ribs over night. I will give you my finger-likin-good account tomorrow.

g-man said...

FIX!!!!

I love Tiger Sauce! I keep it right next to my Pic-A-Peppa Sauce!

buffalodick said...

Deb- It's pretty much in the comment to kate( with the addition of the pasta!) It's also on 11/5/07 post..but changed it to more of a tomato based soup!
Darngirl- Tiger sauce is a must have in this house...
Rog- It was! Food and friends on a snowy day!
Belle- Sounds darn good!
g-man- Somehow I knew you would have this stuff too!

Chef E said...

That is why I do not like contest...I am eating the boring healthy foods like those lentils this week to detox, then I will limit myself a bit of this yummy looking stuff!

Belle said...

Marinade was excellent Buff. Thank you. I had to improvise with my own chilli sauce and I add a grating of fresh ginger.

Mona said...

is there still some of that soup left?

buffalodick said...

Chef- Beans, lentils, etc. really give me digestive trouble!
Belle- Marinade/sauce was originally desoigned for Korean beef short ribs- but works anywhere! Good idea on the ginger- I knew I forgot something!
Mona- soup looong gone!

MarmiteToasty said...

There ya go with the dam pork again lol.....

ps........ we LOVE lentils in this house..

Bina said...

Tiger Sauce huh? Never heard of it. Can you get it at just any store? I would LOVE to try it for making my stir fry. Do you think it would work in that?

buffalodick said...

Marmy- Pork is cheap and good over here! I'm sorry you are allergic, but my wife loves the stuff, so what can I do?
Bina! Alive! Yeaaah! It does work as a flavoring, and it is pretty easy to find in the Midwest..
