Goat Prosciutto; Nicely Vivid Red, Well Done Curing Celery Seed & Juice!!!

To maintain the red meat color and prevent spoiling and poisoning from botulism, prosciutto cured with nitrites like salt peter (sendawa) or potassium nitrit. The nitride oxide bonded and reacted with the remaining myoglobin in the flesh and make a red pigmentation. These process get even better when the water is drained out from the flesh. I used to used salt petre to my charcuterie project, but eversince i’m concerning about the health hence I’m using the natural form of nitrate from celery juice & celery salt for making this goat ham prosciutto.

Slicing Goat Prosciutto

Slicing a goat prosciutto or violino di capra is quite challenging for me. First you need to sharpen your knive to get a thinner sliced prosciutto. I’m using small boning knives, i sharpen it using automatic knife sharpener and it’s almost as sharp as surgical scalpel knives. If you had the prosciutto holder, use it to secure and fixation it, but if you didn’t have any, use your left hand to hold it tight while  you slicing the prosciutto horizontally. Slice the prosciutto as thin as possible with a gentle and confident movement, well my grandma gladly do this job for me; at least for the photograph session, lol

Prosciutto di capra usually made from young goat, i personally order 8 months old goat leg weighed about 1 kg for each of it. DO NOT EVER WASHED THE GOAT LEG WITH WATER or it will be had a very strong gamey aromas. Properly trimming the sinew as much as possible is essential to the rich taste and properly cured prosciutto. Clean the goat leg from any debris or remaining fur and trimmed the remaining blood debris or stain. You can pushed the leg a little bit to drain remaining blood then wipe it out with paper towel.

Young Goat Leg, Celery Seed-Spices-Salt & Celery Juice = Homemade Goat Prosciutto

The spices and herbs used for making the goat prosciutto differ according to the traditions and your personal preferences. For making my homemade prosciutto do capra i’m using a combinations of nutmeg, celery seed, Szechuan peppercorn, fennel seed, cumin, cardamon, sage, tarragon, juniper berries, black pepper, bay leaf, cloves, thyme, oregano, and rosemary. For the salt, i’m using homemade sea salt that i processed with the spices and herbs until fine powder to made it penetrate better to the meat. The natural nitrate preservatives source for making this goat prosciutto is the celery seed and the celery juice that i added into it.

3. Salt-Dry Curing (Plus Cold Smoked) The Goat Leg

Salt Curing Goat Leg with Natural Nitrate

The hind leg or ham of the goat salted and cured with the celery juice, salt and seasoning for about 14 days, depend on your goat leg size. During this time the goat leg ham is sit in the refrigerator and gently pressed to drain all the blood that remains  in the meat and flipped over every day.  After the curing process, the goat leg is carefully washed in running water,  patted dry and hung in a dark, good-ventilated environment.  At this point, you can cold smoked the cured goat leg a little bit to improved the taste and induced the smokey flavour on it before hung it to air cured. The  humidity and temperature of the enviroment is the key success of making a good quality of goat prosciutto. The best environment for making cured meat is cold climate with low humidity. The goat prosciutto  is then left until dry and loosen  30 percent of it’s weight, so make sure you notes the weight of the cured beef before you hung it and calculate the 30 percent loss from the freshly cured goat leg weight. When you lived in a tropical country with high temperature and humidity, don’t worry about it, as long as you can set your refrigerator in “dry mode” you can made your own dry cured meat or prosciutto.

Cheap and Delicious Fine Dining Swamp Eel Fish Dish

Can you imagine all the ingredients on this plate of beautifull  fine dining eel fillet dish cost me about IDR 10.000 (less than 1 USD) for a single portion. Asian swamp eel is cheap and also available through out the year, especially in the rainy season from September to March, the stock of swamp eel reach the highest peak. The live asian swamp eel cost me only about 2 USD/Kg, pretty much a great deal because swamp eel is low in cholesterol and very rich in omega 6 and omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acid, which are extremely good for the body and hearth. Eversince this is sous vide eel fillet is cooked in low temperature, so i think most of the good fatty acid is retained after cooked.

My fellow blogger friend Merryn of Merry’sMenu even Making Bottarga from Flathead Fish Roe. I’m making mine from tuna, the fishmonger told me that it’s dogtooth tuna fish roe. I actually specially ask my fishmonger to save the tuna’s roe for this fish egg seafoood charcuterie project. The Minangkabau descent fishmonger guy actually used to save the roe and bring it to feed his family and never even though to sell it because it’s considered as delicacy, his wife used to make Gulai telur Ikan (Fish Roe Curry) or Pindang Telur Ikan (Spicy sour Fish Roe Soup) with it.

Fresh Tuna Roe with Whole Attached Sac Membrane

How too choose the egg roe for making homemade bottarga ? first step is make sure you choose the very fresh egg roe with complete and unbroken sac attached and covering the roe. Never used any fish roe broken sac because the salt will penetrated too much into the roe and made it too salty and almost unedible once it cured. FRESHNESS is the KEY of DELICIOUSNESS of bottarga, fresh tuna roe used to be bouchy and not too watery or too dry with natural pleasant sea fragrance, never used if the smell too strong or even slight rotten fishy aromas. Choose the ripe fish roe is one where you can see the eggs in the sac they come in, and that they are uniform in color. The watery fish roe is normal, but will take longer time to cure. Unripe fish roe will not work, you must be able to see the eggs; if they are too small, do something else with the roe.

Now were going to yukhoe recipe. Yukhoe [jukʰwe] is a variety of hoe (raw dishes in Korean cuisine), which are usually made from raw ground beef seasoned with various spices or sauces. It is basically a Korean steak tartare. Usually the most tender part of beef will be used; tenderloin or filet mignon. The lean beef is trimmed from it’s fat , sinew or silver skin, julienned, then mixed with seasoning soy sauce, sugar. The yukhoe seasoning or marinade usually contains; salt, sesame oil, minced spring onion, minced garlic, sesame seeds, honey, black pepper, and gochujang. The salted and spiced yukhoe marinate not only infused flavour, but also cured and preserved the raw beef by creates an salt ion solute-rich environment where the salted marinade osmotic pressure draws water out of microorganisms (bacterias & parasites) and slowing down their growth.

Yukhoe or Korean steak tartare uses raw beef, freshness is the most important criteria. Freshly slaughtered  preferred or it is recommended to use no more than one day after defrosting from the vaccum packed, and traditionally should not be aged more than one day after slaughtering. Regular Korean yukhoe customers are often patrons of trusted restaurants or butcher’s shops which have well-known, high-quality beef distributors, so no way making yukhoe with cheap clearance stock supermarket meat for sure. So i asked my butcher to save my beef tenderloin in a vaccum packed right after slaughtered and kept the meat in the freezer before i come to picked it up in the afternoon right after i come back from my clinic.

Nice Beef Tenderloin with Nice Marbled FatPattern (Silver Skin On)

Raw beef can be contaminated with pathogenic bacteria and  other parasites, the Enterohemorrhagic E. coli and Taenia Saginata flatworm being of particular concern. In April and May 2011, five people died and more than 35 people were hospitalised after eating yukke (Japanese spelling) made from beef not designated for raw consumption in various branches of a yakiniku restaurant chain in Toyama and Kanagawa prefectures, Japan, with enterohemorrhagic E. coli bacteria found in many of the cases, so don’t make your own yukhoe unless you strickly known the savety ways to prepare and made it. DO NOT TRIMMING/REMOVED ANY SILVER SKIN or sinew before sousvided the beef tenderloin, i’ll explained it later.

Vaccum Packed Beef Tenderloin for Sous Vide Using Ziplock Plastic Bag & Water

To reduce the risk of eating raw beef, i decided to sousvide or slowly pasteurized the beef in a low temperature to kill the pathogens. Sous-vide French for “under vacuum” is a method of cooking food sealed in airtight plastic bags in a water bath or in a temperature-controlled steam environment for longer than normal cooking times for p to 96 hours, in some cases; at an accurately regulated temperature much lower than normally used for cooking, typically around 50°C (131 °F) to 60 °C (140 °F) for meats and higher for vegetables. Since this is sort of-sousvide, the beef tenderloin is vaccum packed with ziplock manually without any vaccum machine bu simply submerged the ziplock package under water partially to remove the air pocket and then zipped the package silicone seal once the air removed.

As you can see from the photograph, my waterbath temperature was 51.8°C and it actually fluctuated from 50-52°C if i did’t put the lid, just perfect temperature for sousvide beef tenderloin for very rare or simply pasteurized it. The heat source is from the bottom of my rice cooker, so the temperature in the bottom and the surface of the the water bath is different with range about 0.5°C, so it’s necessary to flip it every 20-30 minutes to made it evenly pasteurized. Do not forget to submerged the vaccum packed beef tenderloin completely on the waterbath during the sous vide cooking, put some weight may help.

This is the result of 2.5 hours sousvided beef tenderloin, seems pretty pale pinkis and not so appetizing right now, but wait until you slice the beef and see what happen after you pasteurized/sousvide it in 50C.
