Warming up left overs

Ok some thing are easier than others  to reheat for another meal from all those left overs that it seems most have after the holiday meal.

So what is some of the best way to warm the following things with out over cooking or drying out. Though microwave are ok, they do change the texture and well the doneness.

1.Prime rib

2. Turkey

3. Stuffing

4 Mashed potato

5 Yams

6.Green bean casorole

I just did a rib roast for Christmas. Roast beef sandwiches all week yay! laugh I did a leftover meal with it where I headed up gravy on the stovetop until it was quite hot (adding a bit of water as it simmered) then put thinly sliced roast on a plate with some salad and fresh cooked veggies. I then ladled a generous portion of hot gravy right on the roast slices. The gravy warmed up the beef well enough for me!

i usually just eat the veggies cold. If I'm going to heat them up, I'll do it in a skillet for a few minutes or microwave for a short amount of time... usually 30 seconds to a minute at most. Sometimes I'll do a combination of the two... 30 seconds in the microwave and a minute or two tossed in a hot skillet.

I usully do it about the same though i do pre heat the meat a little in micro...deforst cyle for about 45 seconds, just to take some of the chill out. I als make french dip sandwiches from the meat. This i quick blance the meat in the boiling au jus just before layering on bread. I also make a Philly style sandwich. Here i saute bell pepper, mushrooms and red onion until a little adente the layer the meat on to of them. In a toaster oven I have my bread with cheese melting, when that is done i add the meat and veggies to it.

Yea veggies are harder to warm , and i do that similar to your method.

I'm always a little scared to microwave meat... but I guess a a lower power setting/short amount of time wouldn't be a bad thing for leftovers.

Just heat it Sous Vide, say at 60-65C and you will not loose any moisture.  I di this from frozen left-overs as well.

so just wanted to post this Puttanesca sauce. 

Man it is such a great dish. Lovely change of pace from the common sweet sauce. 

 Doesn't look like much But it makes the house smell like the sea and it sure is good.

I'm currently listening to your newest - SCS 032. In my podcast app (Doggcatcher), I have your feed set to keep all episodes. And I just noticed that I had only 31 episodes.

So I checked the episode listings on the website to try to find the missing episode and saw that their is apparently no episode 030!

While that resolved the discrepency between the numbering of the episodes and the number of episodes I have saved, it made me curious:

What happened to episode 030?

Hello one and all, 

 

I have just finished watching the pan seared salmon video on YouTube - thank you Chef Jacob and read the associated show notes.      

I was wondering if you served salmon as a main - what sort of sides and/or  vegetables could I serve it with?  Thank you for your time.   

I see that you used seseme seeds and some herbs that I am unfamiliar with.     

Just thinking about my vegetarian friend who only eats fish, chicken and turkey.  I thought salmon might be a good thing to serve.   

 

Thanking you :-)

So my question is this

 

I have friends who are coming for dinner - and I usually do dumplings with pork mince, however she does not eat pork.  I posted this picture on facebook earlier today, and she asked for the recipe which is :

I have friends coming for dinner in a couple of weeks, and the lady eats vegetarian dishes mainly but she also enjoys chicken and fish dishes.   

Her husband - eats anything and everything.  

What is your favourite chicken or fish dish - something that presents well on the plate.   

It is the end of summer in NZ - so - if you could think about that in your reply.   I would be interested in trying something new.  

She is an accomplished cook - and usually serves many little dishes when they host.   I would be very interested in hearing from you.
