      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

Brick steak sandwich for overnight racing... anyone recall recipe ?

37 posts in this topic

Hey Folks-

 

Way back was a thread on great food for overnight racing..... one of the recipes was for a "brick sandwich" made with ribeyes, cheese and other assorted goodies.... you then squish the sandwich with a brick overnight and it condenses to make it easier for consuming on the rail in the dark.

 

Found a few older threads, but none with this particular sandwich. I assume it's Focaccia (or similar bread), but anyone still online who posted (or remembers) that recipe ?

 

Other suggestions are welcome !

 

Thanks in advance

Ciabatta bread.

 

Make a sandwich with steak and cheese on it. Put a brick on it to make it easier to eat on the rail.

Beef tenderloin, carmelized onions and horseradish sauce on French/Italian loaf. Flatten as necessary. Killer combination. Crew favorite year after year.

See step four above. Quadruple the brandy, drink the marinade, throw the sandwich overboard and hit yourself over the head with the brick when the wind shuts off. I'll get my coat.

holy hell, that looks delectable....

I feel like I should applaud after viewing that. That's the kind of thing that you eat and then high-five your cardiologist.

 

All things in moderation. And it looks fucking delicious.

Gotta love some of the directions;

 

 

I got lucky and had a similar quantity of bone marrow left over in the fridge

That does look good! That looks better than anything I have eaten during a race, and I have been on some boats where we fed well!

Very amused to see a reference to shooting (*) in the Guardian. Probably the only time ever.

 

FWIW, threads relating to food offshore:

More-or-less same idea as Beef Wellington: crust, beef, duxelles. Just with bread rather than pastry crust and steak rather than tenderloin.

 

Worthy of a try.

You can also just go with anything that is called a "Pannini" basically you just want any bread that is fairly absorbant but also has some solid body and crust. So a Pannin, Ciabbata, Foccacia or a fresh Baugette all will do.

 

the idea is that you take what would normally go in a stew but rather than cooking the meat in the stew (though you could as long as you didn't cube it) you cook it flat and as tender as possible then you take the stew and the meat, put it on the sandwich and put it under a press of some sort (sandwich shops have a toasting press for this) and let the liquid penetrate into the bread, but by pressing it, you restore structure to it. Then by letting it cool you let the fats in the food gel (nicer than coagulate) and that adds further structure.

We built a Shooter's Sandwich last night. One loaf of Italian bread, two T-bones minus bones, some crumbled bleu cheese, mushrooms, shallots, and a bit of grey poupon.

The mushroom and shallot saute produced a pretty amazing aroma.

You would get shot using Dijon mustard but you can use a french loaf dugout like the boule. Colman's mustard is a must and the prime rib pan fried with cognac and peppercorns is classic.

It was a bit too heavy on the bleu cheese. Much of that gets pushed out to the edges upon compression, so when you slice across the loaf, the ends of the slice, where the excess bleu cheese ends up, want to break off anyway. It was damn good, but not a finished product. Needs refinement.

 

Will try without bleu cheese next time, perhaps with some kind of melted cheese in its place. Not sure what will replace the mustard. Ribeyes are a must for next time.

I keep getting a nagging thought that there should be a way to work some bacon and cheddar into the mix somehow...perhaps with some carmelized onions?

You could bake those ingredients into the bread.
