    March 2017 cooking challenge – Championship Party food.

    Millionsknives, thank you very much.  I am surprised and very happy.  I am not sure whether it was the quality or the quantity, but I had fun.  The competition was fierce and it would be great to taste every dish.  Hank, kaneohegirlinaz, and all the others are winners.

    It is March and for college basketball fans that means March Madness.  This is the basketball playoff for the college championship.  For this month’s challenge I would like to have a party for a few friends to watch the games.  It could be any sport and can be at your house, at your business or in the parking lot.  What do you serve your friends at a championship party?  It can be one dish or a menu.    It can be a meal or snack foods.  If you plan several different things pictures for all are not required.   Posts will all be considered so post as often as possible.  Good luck, I am looking forward to see the recipes, pictures, and ideas.

    To repeat Millionsknives instructions for this challenge;

    1) Cook a dish this month
    2) Take pictures
    3) explain your work

    This dish was one of my mother-in-laws favorite appetizers and is always a big hit at parties and such.  The cooking techniques seems unusual to me but it works.  The first step is to poor boiling water over the ribs and letting them cook for 30 minutes (off of the heat).   Then you make a sauce of pineapple juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and ginger and cook them in it for about an hour until tender.  Does anyone know if there is an advantage to doing it this way rather than just basing them in the sauce?  They are pork ribs cut into 2" pieces.

    This was dinner, actually, the other night ... it's a party at our house every night /img/vbsmilies/smilies/cool.gif

     
    Trader Joe's Soft Pretzel Sticks, heated and split open.  

    I oven roasted some fresh Bratwurst sausages from the butcher's case.

    Slather the warm roll with the mustard of your choice; add some of Trader Joe's Sauerkraut 


    What's better with a brat than TOTS!!


    There's homemade Tartar Sauce, made with Kewpie Mayonnaise (ya gotta try this mayo!) for dippin', yum!

    And it's not a party without a beer... I found Trader Jose's Dark Beer very good, 

    even though I'm not so much of a beer drinker, but MAN!  That was a great meal

    Garlic pamesan wings.I tossed the the wings with salt, pepper, smoked paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, dried oregano, and baking powder then placed them on a rack and baked them at 425 for 45 minutes, turning occassionally.  For the sauce I gently heated butter and 3 cloves of garlic finely grated, and parmesan cheese and tossed the wings when they came out of the oven.  This is our finger food dinner, served with sweet potato fries and broccoli florets.

    Those look awesome  Koukouvagia!  Let's here from some of the rest of you, foodies all like to party.  What do you cook?  Pizza, sandwiches, dips, chips, flatbread, tacos, nachos, BBQ, burgers, dogs, popcorn and more.  Cookies, cake, ICE Cream, and other sweets.  What do those across the pond do while watching Premier League football?  Deep fried, baked, raw, and chilled.  How about beverages?

    @Koukouvagia Baking powder is the ticket for that crisp factor.  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/thumb.gif

    For sports events, I'm all about the hot wings. Washed, separated, pat dried. Placed on rack, uncovered overnight in refrigerator. Then unseasoned, twice deep fried in 370 degree oil. Just a few pieces in the foyer at a time to keep oil temperature from plunging. After the second fry, straight into a bowl with a sauce made from a base of butter and Frank's Hot Sauce (and only Frank's for me) in a 2:1 ratio.

    We Asians like to twice fry for that crispy skin. Every time I bring these to a party, people ask for the recipe. The sauce isn't anything special. It's the technique of refrigeration uncovered over night, and twice fried. You can use whatever sauce you like cuz it ain't the sauce that makes great wings.

    Well, this challenge has taken on a special meaning for me. Last night my wife's hometown high school won the Minnesota AA state hockey tournament. Grand Rapids Thunderhawks 2017 State Champs. I made a big pot of Sausage and Peppers for the game. Was too excited to take pictures of finshed product, but have some prep and leftovers shots.

    I cooked hot and sweet Italian sausage in oven. Used sausage drippings to sauté red, green, yellow, and orange bell peppers, onion and garlic. Added a little tomato sauce and cooked down until tender-crisp. Put on Brat buns and topped with shredded mozzarella, parmesean, and gruyere. (I don't normally use gruyere for this, but had some left over and it WAS a championship game. Lol).

    The food of my people (bbq people).   MOINK balls (moo + oink)

    Buy a big bag of frozen italian meatballs from costco, partially thaw, wrap in bacon,  smoke until the bacon is cooked,  mop on the bbq sauce and put back on the smoker until the sauce sets.  Easy, fast, crowd pleaser

    For a party I'll slide them off the skewers and put in fancy toothpicks for which btw there is a sale at korin this month http://korin.com/2017-March-Promotion-Bamboo2

    @MillionsKnives I have just copied this meatball recipe and sent it directly to my husband who will do a flip and may be tempted to pull out the BBQ tonight before the snow storm comes. 👍

    Nice!  The point of the recipe is that it is very easy to replicate.   The downfall is you need to watch the salt.  The meatballs depending on brand may be salty + the bacon is salty.  I used to put bbq rub on for more flavor but that adds salt too.  Of course you can make your own meatballs and salt free bbq rub but then you're approaching the 'real cooking' where you have to clean a meat grinder and then it's not easy/fast anymore.

    Mice.  What kind of BBQ sauce do you use?
