Please no more fruit steaks or fried fruit. I tried frying honey melon after I saw your fried water melon video and I think I almost died. It's the worst thing I've ever done, it tasted awful and the texture was awful and I almost died.

Try soaking the pyth in some seasoned water, like rosemary and thyme. Put a slightly sweet something like apple juice.

Emmy, you should let the toranja's skin seats on salty water for about 30 minutes before fry it. The bitterness would go away.

How can you form an army to overthrow your corrupt government if all you eat is grapefruit pith steaks for nourishment? Some one send food to Cuba please.
Maybe if you cooked it with a little bit of sugar it would help with the bitterness??

Maybe try marinading it overnight? Maybe that would pull the bitterness out and give it some flavor?

I am just wondering if a maranade would resolve the bitterness. Also if you can figure out how to do it without eggs, you may have a vegan hit.

I've seen this video and the fried watermelon and you almost cried when you tried these two. Maybe a bit more processing would make them tastier. Good ideas though.
Meashayshay2 - 9 days ago
That is a really interesting dish. I'm kind of curious enough to try making it myself one day. And lol it's funny you mention you got in trouble for talking a lot but I got told on for not talking enough. Being 'too quiet' (whatever that means) usually. I didn't get in trouble or anything because I made good grades, and there wasn't anything else teachers could complain about me with.

I wonder if you did a salt and sugar brine if that would take some of the edge off. It might also be a good opportunity to get some flavor into the pith. I may have to try this...

The look of it was convincingly chicken breast fillet looking. There has to be more to the preparation of the pith. One website suggests soaking them in vinegar before cooking. A PBS article (an interesting read in its own right 'Communism turned Cuba into an island of hackers and DIY engineers') states, "Among them was a recipe to turn grapefruit rind into a 'steak' *by marinating it with lemon juice, onion and garlic* and [then] frying it up on a pan."
I'd love to see a #Take2 of this recipe. Thanks for sharing with us, #EmmyMadeInJapan.

I noticed that you left a little bit of zest on the pith. I bet if you peeled it more and took an extra layer off you would reduce that astringent taste.

I would quick marinade it (fake steak DEMANDS Worcestershire!) and make a delicious gravy to pour over the top. Blanch it, quick marinade and make southern gravy! A nice porky gravy. If we're playing along like we don't have access to real meat to make gravy you can make it with Jamon cubes. Mmmmmm 😚

This is the first time I've experienced this, but when you were describing the flavor, I got an overwhelming bitter taste in my mouth! That was so weird!

I would have boiled it to get rid of the bitterness, then marinated it with something umami, like soy sauce, or worcestershire sauce, or even fish sauce if you have some. That'd give it more of a meaty, umami flavor from the glutamic acid in the marinade. It'd also help get rid of the bitterness.
That's how you make usable meal or flour out of acorns, after all, you grind them, then soak them in lots of water, and if possible let them sit in running water to get rid of the tannins in it. You could probably do the same thing here to make it more palatable. Heck, marinade it in soy sauce, a bit of sriracha, and if you can tolerate it well, a little MSG, and it'd taste a lot meatier.

Seems a lot better than vegetarian fake meat, I might give this a try sometime. I think I'll boil the pith first though, to get rid of the bitterness.
Lboy926 - 17 days ago
Perhaps the bitterness could be an acquired taste? It still seems intriguing enough to try!

Doesn't the pith contain the toxic substance, citronella? At the very least, it is terribly bitter.

so cool, you can also candy the skin by blanching twice combining with sugar and baking. so easy and totally amazing.
Noor Q
Noor Q - 17 days ago
oh maybe if you try blanching the piths before frying maybe... not sure but I know that for candying you get the bitterness out by blanching them.

Maybe to help remedy bitterness you can beat peels a bit with a metal mallet and then let it soak/marinate in veggie broth and a bit of soy sauce w/added seasoning.

All the nutrients including the vitamin C are in the pith of citrus fruits; the juice is basically sugar water. The pith is also high in oxalates for people who need to be careful about kidney stones. If you could find a way to reduce the bitterness, I don't see why you couldn't do the same with lemons and oranges. And if you know how to recognize them, there are lemons, oranges and grapefruit that have extra thick skins which are much less bitter than the thinner skin variety. I used to blend the pith of thick pith oranges to make orange juice, and it comes out like a thick orange shake.

If think you made a good point of sweating the pith like eggplant. You might try strips, frying and covered with mozzarella and pasta sauce. I'd be the acidity from both would cancel each other out

When I was a child, 45 - 50 years ago, my Grandmother would make a dish called "begger man's stew". It was warmed milk with vanilla & sugar with a piece of white bread, pulled into pieces, added. That's it.

maybe you could marinate them in soy, or sweet soy, or bacon grease or something to flavor them.
