(veggie) burgers and other analog recipes

Which standard recipes, with meat as a key ingredient, have clear vegetarian analogs? Examples, to be clear: for every hamburger, there is a veggie burger (eggplant, cauliflower, etc). Chili con carne becomes chili sin carne. For meatloaf there is Neatloaf. What else should I be thinking of? "Buy fake meat" is not heading in the right direction; "google 'vegetarian [meaty food]'" is a realistic suggestion but which foods?

How to make pulled pork from a tenderloin?

So I've got a two-pound tenderloin defrosting in my fridge, and I'd like to make pulled pork out of it. I've never made pulled pork at all, but I understand it generally calls for pork shoulder, so I feel like I need some extra-special hand-holding to help me figure out how to make it work with a totally different cut of meat.

Perfect Pork Chops?

I have bought the most expensive, most organic and local and mollycoddled pork chops in my life. I do not want to waste this experience. Please tell me how to make the perfect pan-fried pork chop in agonizing detail. I own cast iron pans and I'm going to serve it with asparagus - that's the only limitation. Otherwise anything goes. Teach me the wisdom of Pork Chopery.

Another "should I eat this?" question

I will preface this by saying I am extremely paranoid about food safety. I today purchased an organic whole chicken from the grocery store. The outside of the chicken smelled great; the cavity, where the giblets were just floating around loose with reckless abandon, had a very slight off-odor, like milk and maybe old blood. I rinsed it and still got a very faint whiff. The expiration isn't for 5 more days. In an effort to be brave, I have put her in the oven anyway. Shall I eat her?

Stock Oversaving?

Settle an argument about making stock for cooking. One half says that you should save every odd and end from vegetables and keep them in a big ziploc bag in the freezer for when you make stock so it can get the most varied amount of flavor possible and "recycle" kitchen waste. Other half says that since we're not making vegetable stock and only ever make stock with left over bones you should just keep to the basic recipie ( carrots, onion, celery, etc) and not introduce all these unknown cauliflower ends and parsnip bits and it's a false economy anyway. Who is right? Is anyone right? Are they both right?

Teach me meat science, pretty please

So, my meat business is spinning up. We've registered with the tax office, it's an official thing now. I've got a lot to learn, and a lot of things to figure out. We're going to be making and selling sausages, ham, smoked meats, all manner of things. Primarily we're going to be sending things online, as well as catering and possibly having a food truck to get the name out to drive the online sales. Special monkeywrench: this will all take place in Japan. [more inside]

How do I cook these cuts of meat?

I'm a member of a meat CSA and received a couple of things this past month that I have no clue what to do with and have actually never heard of (maybe due to regional differences?

Proper butcher shop in Portland/Beaverton/Hillsboro?

Can anybody recommend a top notch butcher shop in Portland, OR (actually even better would be Beaverton/Hillsboro)? Sometimes for special occasions I'd like to step up my cooking a notch, including getting more specific cuts or prep, asking questions, etc, and actually interacting with my butcher.

What can I cook with 3 or more kinds of leftover meat?

What can I cook with 3 or more kinds of leftover meat? With the elder Fnorde boy off at college, I'm finding more and more often that dinner leaves us with a small amount of meat left over, too small for a serving, but too big to blithely throw away. What ideas can you give me for things to cook that can use multiple different cooked meats? For example, the fridge now includes about 3 ounces each of grilled beef, pork tenderloin, and chicken legs. I'd like to use them up in a single dish. I can think of making fried rice or lo mein with mixed meat, or maybe burritos or hash. Any other ideas? [more inside]

Experienced vegetarian cook needs to learn how to cook with meat!

After seven years of vegetarianism, I'm opening up myself to eating meat every once in a while. I can tell you how to work with lentils, press tofu, and caramelize anything until the cows come home, I don't even know how to pick out a good cut of meat, much less what to do with it! Beyond recipes, I'm looking for suggested reading, tips, etc on selecting cuts of meat, working with meat for flavoring (when and how you use different fats, etc), and other pointers. Assume I know most cooking techniques that would apply to non-meat ingredients, but any meat-specific techinques would be great! [more inside]

Will the ground beef be safe to eat?

Sorry, another meat safety question. Tonight I took a pound of ground beef out of the freezer and put it straight into a bowl of slightly colder than room temperature water on the counter to defrost for an hour. It defrosted on the counter for an hour. Then I decided I wasn't hungry and put it into the fridge in the still sealed package. Will it be safe to cook tomorrow night?
