Welcome back to Bangkokhooker’s Kitchen of Manliness and I hope you are all safe from the flood. In the last chapter of the Kitchen of Manliness, I introduced you all to the Deep-fried Man-Dog, a meat monstrosity that combines the legendary powers of bacon, cheese, minced meat and deep-fried awesomeness. It was a spur of the moment creation done within a limited time frame in a kitchen I wasn’t entirely familiar with.
Yesterday, I decided to go all out and create an improved version of the Deep-Fried Man-Dog with some gravy to accompany it.
Ingredients (Makes one Man-Dog)
Shit you’ll need for cooking
- One large deep pot or a deep-fryer
- Some spatulas
- Mixing bowl
- Baking paper
- Lots of toothpicks
- A Brush
- A Lighter
For the Man-Dog
- 1 Oktoberfest sausage, whole
- Half an onion, diced
- 150g of minced beef
- 2 slices of cheese
- 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch or potato starch
- 5-7 strips of bacon
- 2 eggs
- 1//2 cup of bread flour
- 1/2 cup of bread crumbs
- A lot of oil cooking oil
- herbs and spices for seasoning (cayenne pepper, paprika, thyme, rosemary)
For the Sausage Bourbon Gravy
- 1 packet of beef stock
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- 1 tablespoon of cake flour
- 1 cup of water
- 1/2 cup of beer
- 2 tablespoons of ketchup
- 1 sausage, diced
- 3 shots of bourbon
- half an onion, chopped
Recipe for the Man-Dog:
Step 1 In the mixing bowl, combine the beef with the egg, onions, herbs, spices and the starch.
Step 2 Mix until smooth.
Step 3 On a piece of baking paper, place bacon in a row making sure that they overlap each other to prevent leaking. See the image.
Step 4 Place the meat mix onto the bacon. Make sure that the meat is evenly distributed at about 1-2cm thickness.
Step 5 Place two slices of cheese onto the meat/bacon combo.
Step 6 Place the sausage on the cheese (not pictured). Then using the baking sheet, roll everything up like in the picture.
Step 7 Secure the meat package with tooth picks to prevent leaking.
Step 11 Heat up the oil to about 160-165 Celcius and DEEP FRY. Make sure you gently place the Man-Dog into oil as to prevent it from breaking. Rotate your Man-Dog every 3-4 minutes.
Step 12 After about 20 minutes, remove your golden deep-fried Man-Dog. Shake off excess fat to be healthy.
Step 13 Heat up at sauce pan to medium-high and melt some butter.
Step 14 Add a tablespoon of cake flour, chopped onions, diced sausage and stir for a minute or until onions and sausage pieces are browned.
Step 15 Add the beer, beef stock, water ketchup and stir. When it simmers it is finally time to add the bourbon. Don’t forget to light it up!
Step 16 Simmer that SAUUUCE for 2-3 minutes!
Step 17 It’s time to give the Man-Dog it’s long-awaited gravy bukake! Pour the sauciness onto the meat monster!
Step 18 Eat this with some cold beer and/or a bread loaf. This meal is worth losing 10 minutes of your life for. What the hell would you do with that time anyway?!The Completed Deep-friend Man-Dog with Sausage GravyCross Section of the Man-Dog
