Super Delicious “Off the Wall” Bean Recipes #5

#5 The Black Calypso bean, also called yin yang for its distinctive and stunning white and black markings, is an heirloom variety which originated from the Caribbean.

It has a delightful nutty, slight onion flavor and a texture that is more crumbly than creamy. Simmer them very slowly so they do not break.

They are one of the best beans for baking and soups.

UO Smart Beam Laser Portable Mini Projector


UO Smart Beam Laser Portable Mini Projector

About the product
  • Until now, most projectors used either LED, LCD or DLP as the light source and they all possessed one bothersome problem: Focus needed to be adjusted manually. This was especially a big problem for portable projectors since they were meant to be carried around and the user had to adjust the focus every single time
  • Finally, a portable projector that doesn’t require focus adjustment came out with laser technology. Focus-free meant that projected image was never out of focus, no matter what surface it was displayed on. Laser technology also made it possible for the projector to produce vivid colors incomparable to those by other LED, LCD and DLP projectors
  • There are currently 3 portable laser projectors in the world: SK Telecom’s UO Smart Beam Laser, S company, and C company. S and C use technology very similar to that of an electron gun. One can see through a camera lens, electron beam wave flowing on the projected image like an analog TV. This laser beam can cause serious harm to human eye
  • The team behind the creation of UO Smart Beam Laser invented a highly-advanced laser technology that is completely safe to human eye. The Class 1 Laser used in the projector is registered with FDA. UO Smart Beam Laser’s ingenious focus free and harmless laser technology has earned itself the 2016 CES Innovative Award

  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons fennel seeds
  • 2 tablespoons coriander seeds
  • 2 pork tenderloins (about 1 pound total)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons wild fennel pollen
  • 8 slices prosciutto
  • 2 large pieces caul fat
  • Olive oil, for coating the pan
  • 1/4 cup sherry vinegar
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • Flageolet Ragout, recipe follows
  • Frizzled Brussels Sprout Leaves, recipe follows
  • Flageolet Ragout:
  • 3 cups flageolets beans
  • 2 cups chicken stock, plus more if necessary
  • Kosher salt
  • Olive oil, for cooking
  • 3 fennel sausage links, casings removed
  • 1/2 bulb fennel, julienned
  • 1/2 red onion, julienned
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup white wine, such as Chardonnay
  • 1 tablespoon ramp seeds, chopped
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • Frizzled Brussels Sprout Leaves:
  • Olive oil, for coating the pan
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed and chopped
  • 12 Brussels sprouts, stemmed and leaves pulled apart
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 sprig anise hyssop

DIRECTIONS

  • To make the brine: Add the salt, sugar, onion, garlic, thyme, rosemary, fennel seeds, coriander seeds and 1 1/2 quarts of cold water to a large container and stir to combine. Submerge the pork in the brine and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Remove the pork from the brine and pat dry. Season with salt, pepper and the fennel pollen. Wrap in the prosciutto and caul fat.
  • Heat a large saute pan on medium-high heat and add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. When the oil is close to its smoking point, sear the pork on all sides until golden brown. Transfer the pork to a sheet pan and reserve the saute pan and drippings. Roast until medium well done and the internal temperature reaches 150 degrees F, about 5 minutes. Allow to rest.
  • Discard the excess fat in the saute pan used to sear the pork. Add the vinegar and reduce until nearly dry. Add 1 cup of the chicken stock and reduce to half. Add the remaining cup of chicken stock and reduce until about 1/3 cup remains. Remove from the heat and swirl in the butter. Season to taste.
  • Slice the pork on the bias and serve over the Flageolet Ragout and Frizzled Brussels Sprouts Leaves. Drizzle with some of the pan sauce.

Flageolet Ragout:

  • Combine the flageolets and chicken stock in a medium saucepan. Season with salt and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until tender, about 30 minutes. Set aside.
  • Add a drizzle of oil and the sausage to a large pan over medium-high heat. Brown the meat, breaking it up as it cooks. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • To the same pan add the fennel, onion, garlic and red pepper flakes. Deglaze with the wine and cook until the fennel and onions begin to caramelize.
  • Return the cooked sausage to the pan and add the flageolets and ramp seeds.
  • Heat through, adding more chicken stock if necessary to keep everything moist.
  • Season to taste. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil to finish.

Frizzled Brussels Sprout Leaves:

  • Heat a large saute pan over medium heat and add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan
  • Add the garlic and cook until aromatic and slightly golden
  • Add the Brussels sprouts, season with salt and saute until slightly charred but not too soft
  • Remove from the heat, add the anise hyssop and toss to combine.
