Crush the potatoes with a fork, cut open the sausage case and mix it in with the potato some salt, pepper, a little flour and some dried onion flakes.

A little butter in the bottom of a fry pan and press the mix flat with a spatula. Scramble two eggs and pour over the mix. Let it all brown and then break it up and turn with the spatula. Brown a little more. With good quality chorizo this shouldn't be greasy. Nice with some bread and a cup of strong coffee, and the left overs re-heat well.

I didn't realize this was a "dish".

One morning I was doing the "what do I have to throw in the pan" breakfast and hit on this combo. Been making it ever since.

Re: Favorite meals while sailing...

Simple steak and wine sauce.

I like rib eye for this, the wife likes sirloin so I usually do one of each.

Pat the steak dry and hit the steak on both sides with cracked pepper and liberal salt. Cover with foil and let the steak come up to room temp.

I'll put some olive oil and just a little butter into the pan and heat until it browns over a medium to meduim-high heat. I put the steaks in for 2-3 minutes per side depending on thickness to get a nicely cooked outer layer and rare (wife) to meduim-rare (me) interior.

Plate the steaks and put them under foil to rest.

Deglaze the pan with a little red wine (whatever we're drinking at the time) and add a little chopped onion, some chopped mushrooms and simmer down for a few minutes making sure to scrape all the good stuff off the bottom of the pan.

Pour the mix over the steaks and serve with potatoes and veggies.

Yum.

That would be the french term "fond", its the little carmelized pieces of meat and browned sugars which give your sauce the added umpf....good technique you are using...basis of a good saute.

Browning is all about carmelizing the sugars in protein or veggies. Its what makes a browned sauteed onion so sweet and a raw one so "tart". Its one of the reason microwaved foood has such an inferior taste to browned food.

Yes, I know this. That's why I suggested mayo, but some people are purists and want to mix them up from scratch.

True story:

This thread inspired me to take an overnight trip on my boat. I normally strip out the boat for racing, so I loaded 3 dock carts of crap back onto my boat. Plus, the temperature was supposed to dip, so I loaded extra blankets and a heater.

I figured I could make BLJones' sausage and pasta meal without too much fuss. Wrong-O.

Forgot a spatula, kitchen knife, pasta and the balsamic vinegar. I ended up sailing to a waterside restaurant and buying a ziplock bag of boiled, plain pasta to make the meal. I cooked the dish with a plastic spoon and used a small rigging knife to cut everything up. It was pretty hilarious. Even without the vinegar, it was pretty tasty.

Culinary Tip

For grilling fish, especially flaky fish such as Salmon, Rockfish, etc...spread a bit of mayonnaise on the fillet using a pastry brush. The oil will virtually eliminate it from sticking to the grill, the egg will help it caramelize nicely, when it done you wouldn't know its there, it pretty much dissipates.

Re: Favorite meals while sailing...

Here's one for chef in particular, anyone else feel free to chime in.

For Steak my method is to heat oil (for me always Olive) sear quickly both sides then turn only once more. I like steak rare but obviously time depends on your preference. Rest for ten minutes or so.

The other night however I was watching an Heston Blumenthal program and his method is to turn the meat every fifteen seconds. That was a 'crikey'moment for me.

Thoughts ?

Dave, my wife and I took several cooking classes at Williams Sonoma and one of the techniques was doing exactly this to make a sauce. They used stock, I experimented with red wine and figured out I liked it better than using stock with steak.

We ended up buying a stainless pan just for this reason, then another for the boat. Guess they give those "free" classes for a reason

"turn the meat every fifteen seconds"
Whatever makes him happy.

Obviously, he's found a secret that all the best steakhouses in the world have missed. (Right.)
