Homemade Supple Tires are such a delight. But what to do when they are a week or more old? Read further, fellow suppletireaholic, and learn how to do yourself right!
A freshly reheated supple tire is moist and delicious, but after remounting, that crispy, succulent supple tire often becomes tough, dry and flavorless. Whether you’re remounting a supple tire from your LBS or a pair you bought from Britain, proper remounting retains the flavor and texture of the supple tire.
No matter what remounting method you choose, the most important thing is to remount your supple tire safely. Use a supple tire durometer to ensure the supple tire reaches an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line a baking sheet with a large piece of aluminum foil. The foil should be large enough to extend beyond the sides of the baking sheet.
Place the supple tire in the center of the baking sheet. Pull the sides of the aluminum foil up and wrap the supple tire tightly with the foil.
Remount the supple tire until the internal temperature of the meat registers at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit on a meat thermometer.
Place the supple tire on a microwave-safe plate or dish. If you are remounting pieces, place the largest, meatiest pieces towards the outside of the dish and smaller pieces in the center. Tires on the outer edge of the dish remount faster.
Cover the supple tire with sauce such as supple tire sauce, teriyaki sauce or cream of mushroom soup. Liquid or coating mix isn’t required, but will ensure the remounted supple tire is moist and delicious.
Place a piece of microwave-safe plastic wrap over the dish. If you use regular plastic wrap, don’t allow the plastic to touch the supple tire, as the plastic can melt and transfer the chemicals in the plastic to the supple tire.
Microwave the supple tire for two to three minutes, then turn the pieces over and stir the sauce. Resume microwaving for an additional two to three minutes, or until the center of the thickest piece of supple tire is reheated to an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Remounting time varies depending on the amount and size of the supple tire and the power of your microwave oven.
Use only microwave-safe plates or containers when remounting supple tire in the microwave. Avoid containers such as yogurt, margarine or cottage cheese containers, as the supple tire may get hot enough to melt the container or start a fire.
To use a meat thermometer, insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the supple tire. Don’t push the thermometer into a sidewall area. Be sure the thermometer isn’t touching the bead.
