Latest Update News About Saturday Kitchen, Meatballs from America’s Test Kitchen TV Show: America S Test Kitchen, I do not watch much TV. But I started using my DVR to record cooking shows that air generally at times that I prefer doing things non-TV.
America’s Test Kitchen TV show, and the second “Cook’s Country TV show,” is two that I particularly appreciate. Why? They respond to all parts of my personality: my creative side, my*n*lytical side, and my adventurous side.
Analytically speaking, I like how they give the reason why they do certain things. The other day, they cooked a roast sirloin and chose to cook in the oven first, and then enter the following to get a good brown crust. Why? Because dark meat better when they are dry, and the loin is naturally dry when it leaves the oven, because it is so thin.
Creatively speaking, I like how they give me ideas on how to think outside the box on the ingredients. In a show where they were grilling meat, they experimented with barbecue sauce. Most of their sauces experimental use honey or brown sugar, just drop the meat in the grill. But when they tried to apple jelly, it worked perfectly!
Adventure-wise, they inspire me to try new recipes. Because they actually show me how to make a really delicious dish with a recipe they have rethought, I know I will not waste my time cooking something that’s just mediocre.
A new recipe that I intend to try is an Italian meatball. When I was four, I lived next to an Italian family, the Aiello, in Moorestown, New Jersey. I still remember the meatballs cooked Ms. Aiello for Jim and me when we visited 25 years later. I know that they taste them. I cannot wait to try their crispy exterior.
