application, schmapplication!

the basics:
name-whysteriastar's cooking show
location-the internet

the important:
I'm not doing the bands and foods because my real profile is already accepted, this is just for the show.
why you think you should be in this community-Because I was already accepted and now I'm doing a fucking show!
one "secret" or "tip" for us-when making ceviche, don't squeeze your limes or lemons too hard or you'll start releasing the oils from the skin and it will taste different

the aesthetics:
You will need:
5 cloves garlic
2 tsp. anatto
3 lbs. lamb chops
1 lb. lamb ribs
3 tsp. coarse mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 bottle Mexican pilsner
1 bunch cilantro
1 handful fresh parsley
1 tomato
1 onion
1 1/2 tsp. cumin
1 can chicken or beef stock or broth
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 pound yucca root

First, you will need to marinate your lamb meat. Slice lamb into about 4 ounce size pieces, place the bones aside, but do not dispose of them. Lay lamb chunks flat in a flat bottom bowl or pie dish. Mix together 2 cloves diced garlic, 1 tsp. annatto, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper, 1/2 cup of the beer and 2 tsp. of the mustard. Pour evenly over your lamb. Spread the last tsp. of mustard over the top of the lamb meat. Let stand for 2-4 hours.
Place in blender 1/2 tomato, the onion coarsely chopped, the cilantro, parsley, 1 tsp. of the cumin and 1/4 cup of broth/stock. Mix until well blended.
Peel yucca root and slice into 1 inch cubes. Place cubes in a pot full of water and bring to a boil. Boil until yucca is easily penetrated with a fork, then set aside.
Once the meat is marinated, place oil in pan and heat. When oil is warm, add the lamb meat without the marinade. Sear the outside evenly and place aside. Now add the vegetable blend to the pan and fry for about 1 minute. Add the meat back in, stir and cook for another 5 minutes over medium high heat. Add the marinade left over, the bones you set aside before and the rest of the broth/stock. When stew comes to a boil, reduce heat to medium, add the rest of the chopped tomato and leave to simmer for about 1 hour or until meat is very tender. Stir occasionally. At this time, add the rest of the cumin, annato, pepper and beer. Bring heat back up to med-high and bring to a boil. Leave boiling for 2 minutes, then reduce heat to low. Add yucca root and stir. Let sit for 5 more minutes, then remove from heat.
Serve with spiced rice.

Man this looks delicious. I wish I could afford lamb. Will this recipe work the same with pork chops?
I think it would work obviously the flavor would be a little different, but I don't think it would be bad.
Do you think the cooking times would be the same? I've never cooked with lamb before so I don't know if it cooks slower or not
That's a good question, but being as how it's a stew, you mostly just cook it until it gets super tender, so I think if you just base it on that, you should be fine. Let me know how it turns out.
