how to roast peppers

January 10, 2012

OK, so this is my first ever instructional video. Please be kind. Also, if you burn down your house, burn yourself, burn your tongs, burn your thong… I simply cannot take responsibility. Please attempt at your own risk.

I think I first remember seeing this done back in the 90’s on a TV cooking show called “Dinner and a Movie” (aired on TBS or maybe TNT). The concept was an overly peppy and cutesy couple cooking in-between commercial breaks during a film. Typically they would pair their menu with the theme of the movie being shown. Once their menu item was simply a martini and they were completely trashed by the film’s end. So… maybe that will be my next video attempt.

Anyway, I hope this short video wasn’t a complete waste of four minutes of your life. (I’ll try and keep the next one under two minutes.) Also… I shot this on my iPhone (not even the latest iPhone). Maybe I’ll invest in a better video taking gadget down the road.

    Great video! Bravo… bravo.

    I am envious of your gas stovetop! I am not as fortunate as you (oh to dream) … but I have had success using the gas grill … and my electric oven, only in desperation, on broil. Also, I don’t wash my peppers. I instead remove as much of the skin (and all the icky sticky stuff inside) and try to preserve as much of the roasted in juices – oils – as I can. I think that is where all the flavor hides.

    Anyway, love … LOVE the video and would love to see more!

    P.S. Loved your dogs!
