Stove-Top Mac n' Cheese

It's always been a dream of mine to cook mac n' cheese. But the problem is, i don't have an oven to do such.

With pure luck as I was browsing some food/recipe sites, I was able to find this recipe wherein I can cook mac n' cheese on stove-top.


Macaroni and cheese- is a dish consisting of cooked elbow macaroni and white sauce with some cheese added. Traditional macaroni and cheese is a casserole baked in the oven; however, it may be prepared in a sauce pan on the top of the stove from scratch. (Wikipedia)





INGREDIENTS


  • 1/2 pound elbow macaroni
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 ounces evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 10 ounces sharp cheddar, shredded




DIRECTIONS


  • In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook the pasta to al dente and drain. Return to the pot and melt in the butter. Toss to coat.



  • Whisk together the eggs, milk, hot sauce, salt, pepper, and mustard. Stir into the pasta and add the cheese. Over low heat continue to stir for 3 minutes or until creamy.


Serve while hot. Best with coffee or hot chocolate drink.

Cooked: Spicy Pork Binagoongan (Spicy Pork in Shrimp Paste)

Yesterday, I ran out of ideas of what to cook for lunch for our laborers. We already had adobo and menudo plus sinigang all through the week, and I still have a few pounds of pork meat in the fridge. 

Good thing is that I still have s few jalapenos left and what I just need is half a cup or less of shrimp paste.

Further, I found this recipe online which is really an easy one to cook.. :)



All you need to have are the following:


  • 2 lbs Pork, cubed
  • 1 tbsp Garlic, minced
  • 5 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup tomato, chopped
  • 1 pc chili (banana pepper, jalapeno, or long chili pepper), sliced
  • 1/2 cup shrimp paste
  • 3-5 pcs dried bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp whole pepper corn
  • 24 ounces water
  • salt and pepper
Instructions: 
  1. In a pot, pour-in the water and bring to a boil
  2. Put-in the pork, vinegar, and dried bay leaves and simmer for 35 minutes or until meat is tender
  3. Remove the meat from the pot separating it from the liquid and other ingredients. set aside
  4. In a separate pan, saute the garlic, onion, tomato
  5. Add the shrimp paste and simmer for 5 minutes (more time is needed for raw shrimp paste)
  6. Put the pork in and cook for 7 minutes. Be sure to mix all the ingredients well
  7. Add the chili and simmer for 3 minutes
  8. Add salt and pepper to taste
  9. Serve hot. Share and Enjoy!

Shakey's Hungarian Sausage with Mojos

I just can't "not" to post or blog about this. 
I fell in-love with it the first time I tasted it!

This Hungarian Sausage was so flavorful, it has a hint of mustard, slathered with chili sauce, mozzarella cheese and mushrooms. 

Was surprised also that the sandwich is huge. I can't even finish it up by myself. 


It's mild spicy and salty,just the way I love it!!
