deli delights


W
e have all kinds of gadgets and bells and whistles to make life in the kitchen easier and speedier and while I am a big fan of a good sharp knife sometimes you cant beat a tool designed to do the job, in this case a meat slicer.

psst..look I'll show you how I got that first picture.




I chose from these and then I edited.


(I thought I should show it in my more 'traditional' way of taking pictures.)

We have this guy, and while its not a professional model it still gets the job done.

Dig this.



I cut frozen meat paper thin for cheese steaks or for jerky in the dehydrator, we love it and its a money saver. I buy meat in bulk and then for a fraction of the cost we have custom sliced deli meats for sandwiches any old time.

Do you do anything... in your kitchen that is somewhat normal[take no offence please]like open a can of soup and heat it up?

snugs said...

he opens a few beers, does that count- right dog?

doggybloggy said...

micky-T: not too often - in fact I cant remember when was the last time. I make things from scratch and I enjoy doing it...I know this sounds more offensive but we are healthier because of it. I do cook for people occasionally so not everything you see is for us.

snugs: thats right! I pop those cans and bottles open - so they do count.

wow--I don't think I've ever seen a kitchen with a deli meat slicer--impressive!! (did you use that for your potato chips?)

doggybloggy said...

beth: boo ya

tavolini: I used a mandoline for the potatoes - if you dont have one you should get one - they come in various price ranges but they all do the same thing, cut veggies real thin.

That is a serious sandwich. Is it worth cleaning the meat slicer at the end?

Tanya Kristine said...

what is that glob thing on the table? do you eat it?

Marjie said...

I have a meat slicer, too, and I just love it. Great for roast turkey breast (I buy mine boneless), roast beef, ham, everything. I often use it to slice meat for dinner, because I get worn out slicing 5+ pounds of meat. As an added bonus, it gives us meat for sandwiches or grinders the next day!

And, yes, you can't beat fresh! Besides, at least in my case, why do I want to open two industrial sized cans of soup for one meal when I can just toss stuff in a pot and have enough for that meal plus the next day's snacks?

Anette said...

Oh it looks so fancy, but where do you store it? Have you got a big kitchen? The sanwich looks very good!

Harmony said...

I definitely need more kitchen gadgets...they are always on my wish list for Christmas...but the hubby usually comes up with his own ideas on what to get me...maybe next year!

That sandwich looks amazing!!!

doggybloggy said...

joie: totally worth it...

TK: jerky...you know j-e-r-k-y it

marjie: it makes sense that you have one...dang!

anette: not that big but I find a way...

harmony: gadgets help and gadgets hinder rhyme the rest and you're a (blank)

ap said...

Any chile on that sangwheech?

The Blonde Duck said...

You are hardcore!

doggybloggy said...

ap: nope!

TBD: das right!

Harmony said...

Blender?

I feel like you are trying to tell me something...

doggybloggy said...

harmony: "yes grasshopper"

Chef E said...

I wonder if you could cut some lemon zest off without a piece of my finger?

I am dizzy lizzy now thanks to that video!...must...get...a...glass...
of...wine...with that sandwich...

I would love to own a meat slicer, but have no room.
I'll take a hot pastrami on good Jewish rye with a swipe of brown mustard, please!

Maggie said...

Ooo, do you have a sausage stuffer too? I'd love a meat slicer but as much as I nick, burn and grate myself I don't think it would be wise. But I'm quite deft at thinly slicing a whole corned beef brisket with my electric knife.

Just telling it like it is said...

I think buying in bulk is smart!!!

doggybloggy said...

chef e: you could if you want...

stace: How fun to intern at a deli..

maggie: I do. Your knife is electric too.

just telling: you end up not shopping as much as you thought..

buffalodick said...

I had a meat slicer(not as good as yours!)it had a lot of plastic parts and flexed so much it was worthless... Dang! Now I want a good one, and have no place to store it!

pigpigscorner said...

wow that's a lot of meat. Nice gadget there.

What a fabulous post! Makes me want to run out and buy that meat slicer. I've wanted one since I was 14 and a friends mom had one.:) Thanks for the post!
