Myra Torre's entry: beef and kraut pie, with lentil stew and grapefruit salad

 Myra Torres self evaluation:

We had fun...the pie and grapefruit salad were a big hit. Vivian questions the relevance of the secret ingredient in the pie and Vance thinks it needs more ketchup. Cheers...Norma , Seth thanks for inviting us to play Chopped

Seth Russell's entry: Shrimp in Grapefruit Sauce with Sauerkraut Lentil and Greens Stew with Kielbasa

zoom to album

Seth Russell's self evaluation:

The shrimp was delicious and the grapefruit flavor came through.   I salted peppered the shrimp and maranades it half hour in grapefruit juice, sauteed it with shallots in butter, the spooned a grapefruit reduction sauce over it.  Even denise liked it.  I served it to Denise on a bed of greens, she liked it.

The stew was ok but would have been better if i had just heated the Kielbasa over the sauerkraut.

Jeanie Grahm's entry:  Slow-Cooked Pork Ribs in Sauerkraut with Grapefruit and Lentil Soup with Mustard Greens

zoom to her facebook album

Jeanie Grahms self evaluation:

These were both pretty tasty, although I wouldn’t want to eat the pork dish too often"it is very rich. The grapefruit was not very noticeable flavor-wise because the sauerkraut overpowered it, but it did make pretty red splashes in the dish, which also contained potatoes and onions in a soy-ginger-garlic-plum sauce. I added prunes in the last 10 minutes to soak up the liquid and counter the acidity with sweetness. The pork was VERY tender, and the dish had a lot of flavor. The lentil soup was basic lentil soup with sautéed mustard greens, garlic, and mushrooms"hearty for a fall evening. I think I would prefer to eat these two dishes separately"each one is a meal by itself.
