It's National Oyster Soup Day.

It's National Oyster Soup Day!
My All-Time favorite Oyster Stew comes from The Oyster Bar at Grand Central Station, NYC!
Sitting there at the counter watching them make it is a delight!
I think there's a difference between Oyster Soup & Oyster Stew
Oyster Soup contains vegetables and may or may not contain Cream.
Oyster Stew contains cream and maybe only finely minced onions or shallots. 
I prefer the Stew over the soup.
How about you?
Let's see some recipes!
Here's GCS - NYC
Oyster Stew ala Grand Central Oyster Bar in New York City
Butter
Paprika
Celery Salt
5 oz. Clam Broth
5 oz. Oyster Liquid
8-10 Oysters
1/2 Tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
5 oz. Milk
Place pat of butter in double boiler and sprinkle a little paprika and celery salt.
Add 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce and clam broth, oyster liquid and oysters.
Stir for about 5 minutes or until edges of oysters begin to curl.
Add milk (half & half) and stir until it is very hot but not scalded.
Pour into a deep bowl, top with another pat of butter and a dash of paprika

    Just last night I just watched Emeril Lagasse do a show on the Cooking Channel from the Grand Central Oyster Bar in NYC. He had one of their chefs demonstrate how to make this incredible stew.
    My mouth was watering!

    The old Gourmet magazine single volume cookbook has a great recipe for Oyster Bisque.

    Dan & Louis' in Portland looks like a "Must Go There" spot if you're near Portland!

    BB, there's obviously no paprika in the picture of the (delicious looking) oyster stew from Dan & Lewis.
    The recipe for the oyster stew at NYC's, GCOB was noticeably light reddish orange in color because of the addition of paprika.
    Whose recipe is more "correct"?

    Like Meatloaf & Potato Salad, I don't think there is a "More Correct" Recipe for Oyster Stew! The only incorrect one would be one with a bad oyster in it!
     
    Even Mountain Oyster Stew is pretty good!!

    Courtesy of Robert Irvine, Chef, Food Network
    Prep Time: 20 min Inactive Prep Time: 10 min Cook Time: 1 hr 0 min
    Serves 8 servings
    Ingredients
    Directions
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    Remove outer membrane from the testicles and slice into 1-inch disks. Toss into flour, seasoned with salt and pepper, and shake off any excess. In a large oven proof skillet add canola oil and heat until it gets to the smoking point. Add garlic and onions and sauté until cooked, tossing quickly so as not to burn the garlic. Remove from pan and set aside.
    In the same pan with the oil residue, add the butter and place the disks of the testicles, flat side down, into the hot skillet. Cook until golden brown on both sides. Add the wine, stir in tomato paste until well incorporated, then add back the sautéed onion and garlic mixture. As the dish cooks it will thicken because of the flour dusting on the testicles. Continue to cook on top of the range for about 15 minutes, then place the pan into the preheated oven for another 30 minutes or until testicles are tender. Remove from oven and adjust seasoning. Let rest for approximately 10 minutes so flavor enhances. Garnish with chopped herbs and crispy bread.

    That's Acceptable as long as you drop them in some Oyster Stew first!
    Eating oyster crackers plain is like kissing your toothless sister!

    IF you can get the bull to calm down, it's easy!!!

    Actually, Bulls are color blind! It's not the Color that agitates them, it's the motion of the bull fighter with the cape that pee's them off.
    By the time the Matador shows up, the bull is REALLY PO'ed because of stabbings and short barbed banderillas being stuck in his shoulders.
    I'm rootin' for da Bulls!
    How did we get from Oyster Stew to Bull fights?????????
