Cooking with the Master: Episode VI: Porterhouse Steak
 
What follows is the transcript of “Cooking with the Master: Porterhouse Steak, Episode VI"

Narrator: Ninja Squirrel Productions Presents, "Cooking with the Master"

I (Gore): Ladies, Gentlemen, Good evening, and welcome to "Cooking with the Master," a show about cooking. The Master is spending this Father’s Day with his children and has asked me to fill in. For this special occasion, I will demonstrate how to make a meal that Father wants, a meal that is special to Dad, a thick Porterhouse steak with baked potato. There is nothing more that Dad wants on his special day and we will show you how to make this meal extra special. We begin with a thick Porterhouse.

Producer: Excuse me Gore, but we’ve sampled some of the Throwdown participants and it seems that they would much rather have eggplant.

I (Gore): I cannot believe such surveys. Everyone knows that a Porterhouse steak is the ultimate Father’s Day meal.

Producer: Well, we talked with Bigabyte, Guerry, and Landarc and they seemed to think that Porterhouses are passé, too much of a cliché, and way too much fat for the Dad of today, living a healthy lifestyle. Also, Ninja Squirrel’s positive ratings are still five points above yours, so you know what that means.

I (Gore): Noooooo!

Producer: Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present this week’s episode of “Cooking with the Master,” starring Ninja Squirrel!

[Wild cheers and applause from audience]

Ninja Squirrel: Squeak, squeak, squeak….

Narrator translates: I’m terribly sorry for the confusion, but welcome to "Cooking with the Master," a show about cooking. For this special occasion, we want to make Dad what he truly wants, eggplant!

[Cheers from the audience]

Producer [aside to Ninja Squirrel]: Our surveys are showing a sausage approval rating at 78%.

Ninja Squirrel: Squeak, squeak, squeak….

Narrator translates: Not just any eggplant, mind you, but eggplant sausage.

[Groans from audience]

Producer [aside to Ninja Squirrel]: Our surveys are indicating very low approval ratings for vegetarian sausage.

Ninja Squirrel: ….Squeak, squeak, squeak….

Narrator translates: …Sausage eggplant that is stuffed with chicken and cheese!

[Cheers from audience]

Ninja Squirrel: Squeak, squeak, squeak….

Narrator translates: The eggplant is sliced open, salted and rinsed, and then stuffed with roasted chicken and sharp cheddar cheese.

I (Gore): But what are you going to use for a sausage casing?

Ninja Squirrel: Squeak, squeak, squeak….

Narrator translates: Sausage casings are traditionally made from intestinal linings. In our case, we use pork belly, that is, a bacon weave!

Producer: Brilliant! Bacon weaves have an 87% rating!

http://i613.photobucket.com/albums/t...IMG_0459-1.jpg

Narrator translates: We cap the eggplant. Wrap it in the bacon weave and then smoke it for a couple hours.

I (Gore): But Ninja Squirrel, we were making a special Father’s Day meal to enter in the “with a bone” Throwdown. This is a disaster! We’ll be disqualified! We’ll be a laughingstock!

Ninja Squirrel: SQUEAK, SQUEAK, SQUEAK!!!!!!!!!

Narrator translates: SHOVE A BONE IN IT GORE!!!!!!!

[Gore takes the pieces of chicken that weren't used in the stuffing and melds them into Ninja Squirrel's creation]

Ninja Squirrel: Squeak, squeak, squeak….

Narrator translates: Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you the Eggclucken:

[As the credits roll by and the audience applauds]

Producer: Brilliant, the ratings are again through the roof!

Now that's really innovative!:clap2:

A throwdown category should be created for this entry, so that the eggclucken can be deemed the winner! BTW, what was the temp on that eggclucken when it was pulled off the heat?

bigabyte 06-20-2010 11:07 PM

Not just any Eggclucken, but Eggclucken with cheese inside! Whodathunkit?

mmmmeat 06-20-2010 11:13 PM

not me... i hate eggplant (bad childhood experience) but i'd hit that!!!

High Q 06-20-2010 11:17 PM

Well.......now we know what the racoon did for Father's Day?! Beautiful job to (i)Gore, the squirrel and the master. Well done.

Alan in Ga 06-20-2010 11:22 PM

Got my attention with that one ... Great job

BigButzBBQ 06-20-2010 11:22 PM

:shock:
Not really sure what to say about that. I know I really want to taste that one for a full measure. Haven't gotten to eat much eggplant. Very interesting application though. :thumb:

After seeing the money shot and coming back here to read your post I feel strange...different...some..how...
like... i was abducted by aliens and had my brain and heart replaced by an eggplant.
:clap2:

Smokey Al Gold 06-21-2010 07:44 AM

Just the thought of eggplant makes me shudder but I would totally eat that! Great job as always!

Phubar 06-21-2010 10:38 AM

Funniest thing I've read all day.

I was expecting steak.
:confused:


:becky:

CBQ 06-21-2010 12:36 PM

LoL. Great job Gore :-D

BlkJeep 06-21-2010 03:42 PM

Great!! I really needed a laugh today! (work is rough) Thanks a million.. BTW I'd give it a whirl, but I was thinking Ninja Squirrel needs a female side kick wearing foil?

There already is one: it's called the Zero's Club!

As for the temp, I didn't stick it. The chicken was already cooked and the eggplant would cook faster than the bacon, so I just smoked it until the bacon was done. In all honesty, I expected it might hit the trash after taking a bite. It was shockingly good, I expect because the eggplant soaked up a lot of bacon ... juice. Chicken and melted cheese didn't harm it any. I gladly took it for lunch (along with some leftover Father's Day Argentinian-style Porterhouse, mmmmm).

Thanks for all the positive comments on the shows.
