I ended up not going - hopefully Sunday.

We have a couple of butchers around here, so that will be choice #2.

Butter chicken 

- Chop up a couple pounds of boneless chicken thighs
- Marinade in yogurt, mustard powder, garam masala, ginger, and salt
- Carmelize onions, then saute garlic and ginger
- Add in garam masala, mustard powder, cayenne, clove, chinese five spice
- Through in cashews and a big can of fire roasted tomatoes with their juice.  Simmer for a while
- Spread the chicken out and broil until cooked
- Blend up what's in the pot, then add a half stick of butter and a half cup of cream and blend again
- Add chicken, serve with rice.

Anyone make tortillas? I finally ordered a press and think I'll work on that. Not sure whether to track down fresh masa or use the dried stuff, which I've never found to be all that easy to work with or good.

I really need to start doing that. I'd go fresh masa.

That's what I'd prefer though I need to find a source. I have nixtamilized corn before but not something I feel like doing again.

Great tortillas are so cheap and plentiful here, I've never bothered making my own.

But my sister moved to Florida back in the 90s and could never find any, so she learned how to make them from a friend's mom here in Texico, so she'd never go without.

I'm not exactly hurting for options, but I've been told fresh tortillas are much better than anything else, so shoot might as well try it. Feels like something I should know how to do at least.

Yeah, fresh are best for sure.  That's what I'm saying, I can go to a half dozen places within a few minutes of my house and get tortillas that were made within an hour. 

But making them from scratch is a bit of a holy grail, so you should certainly try it if you want.

I also bought the momofuku book (from a bookstore!) so now I have to source pork neck bones and kombu too.

Not a bad idea. I went on a tour of the ethnic groceries near my house and located some pork bones, so should be set there. Also found fenugreek, which I see in recipes but could never find at Kroger.  No luck on the fresh masa so going with the dried stuff first.

Steaks, briskets, roasts, beef ribs, every single part of a cow is delicious! Here’s a guide on how to butcher a cow from the fine folks at at Bon Apetit.

There are so many different cuts that come out of a steer, therefore we won’t go into how to cut every single one of them. Watch the video below for some great tips on butchering and trimming beef.
