One problem plaguing a lot of people these days, especially burgers like myself, is that many people eat out at restaurants too much instead of preparing home cooked meals. Eating out is frequently both more expensive and less healthy for you than a home cooked meal. Furthermore, many people live with a limited library of meals that they know how to prepare and don't realize the culinary possibilities that are right in front of them.
The purpose of this thread is to try to break that habit of eating out and to make cooking at home become the norm in our lives. Please share meal ideas and how to prepare them here. All meals are welcome, although preferably we should post meals that are easy to prepare so that novice cooks will not be intimidated by the prospect of preparing them for themselves. Even simple sandwiches are fair game. Sometimes that may mean cutting corners with pre-made mixes instead of preparing everything from scratch.
Remember that the goal isn't necessarily to post the most inexpensive meals or the healthiest meals, although those meals are certainly very welcome. The goal is to encourage people to dust off their kitchen appliances and flex their atrophied cooking muscles. I realize that this opens the door to culinary nightmares like /tg/'s infamous meat-bread, but so be it. Let's get cooking!

Today I'm revisiting beer brats, come along for the ride.
We'll be using store beerbrats (all that was available) and 48oz of Frio 6.0. I plan to experiment with the sauce.
When initially cooking the sauce. You will want to start at around 6-7, and then increase temp as beer cooks off
Is there anything different this time?
I suppose, now that you mention it, that the difference would be a matter of sauce color and flavor.
You're right, my bad, I wont post
I did include sesame oil and a few other experiments, but you're too fucking puritanical about shit to care then arent you? Go bounce on a baseball bat you churlish and self-appointed gatekeeper
And yeah, for those non-nazi, pro-foodie folks out there,
After boiling the beer down, post brat extraction, I added a out a cup of beer broth
>>2759>I suppose, now that you mention it, that the difference would be a matter of sauce color and flavor.
Of course.>You're right, my bad, I wont post
You can post it if you want, i just wanted to know what you put into it as opposed to the last time.>>2760>I did include sesame oil and a few other experiments
What are the other things?>but you're too fucking puritanical about shit to care then aren't you?
Kek, yes if it isn't exactly how Gordon Ramsey made it then miss me of the list.>Go bounce on a baseball bat you churlish and self-appointed gatekeeper
Okay, i'll resume my guard duty's then.>>2761>After boiling the beer down, post brat extraction, I added a cup of beer broth
And how was it on your pink plate? Did it meet your majesty's expectations?
Or maybe it was when I mixed 1 pt Worcestershire sauce with 1pt teriyaki and 1 pt aji mirin and put that in the brat sauce, is that different enough the fuck for (you)?
Or maybe if (you) have nothing to contribute to the thread, you rightly go fuck yourself sideways with a dough bit attached and leave actual posters alone yea k?
>>2763>is that different enough the fuck for (you)?
Almost, i think it needed some parsley or maybe some basil, without it, it isn't truly gourmet worthy. >>2764>Or maybe if (you) have nothing to contribute to the thread, you rightly go fuck yourself sideways with a dough bit attached and leave actual posters alone yea k?
Which way should i be performing this yoga move? Does it require me to be a professional?
I dont know why you're opting to be unnecessarily adversarial in this, so I'll just suggest that you opt to not
All i wanted was to know what different coating of shit you gave it this time but you took it personally for some reason. I didn't come here to wage war over beer brats.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how a thread can be killed in a few easy steps.
In the meantime, the brats are grilling. All the measurements are accurate, with the same dunking and then grilling method, making sure to bake the flavor to the skin.
This is an important step btw, and iterating it is essential, per the Forum Authority of Cooking Universal (FAC U)
Thanks for posting. It's looking good so far, and I can't wait to see the brats finished.
Things can be stressful or bleak, and with those emotions let's use them a fuel for those that deserve it and for the projects you want.>>2758
Peace, lurk on the thread and see the pattern emerge and have some patience. Tone is heavily predicated on direct words with no suvtext to accurately convey the intent of the message, which leaves a wide array of places where communication can break down on multiple levels from all sides.

Those are not mutually exclusive. Paying attention to your health and those around you so you can build your best possible self in the most delicious fashion isn't a crime. Neither is ensuring what is put into the body does not exceed the tolerances per person.
More importantly is dealing with apathetic or malevolent entities that don't care what you consume. Especially those things in the food and drink industry.
I will say the human body can deal with an incredible amount of bullshit and become the peak it can be.
I've never been able to trust those weird-coloured drinks. Soft drinks, hard drinks, energy drinks... If it's blue or black or it comes in a can I don't trust it.
But still, part of me always wonders what this flavour of this branded bullshit would taste like, and what that flavour would taste like, and if this "after-workout health drink" and "pre-workout energy drink" would really do anything good.
Well played. The left brioche bread(bun) was toasted, otherwise the drizzle is the remaining brat sauce, with a sprig of sauerkraut to cut the intense fatty flavor of the thrice-baked sauce and the brats
I'm just saying now, it's better unburnt
>>2770How difficult is it to understand "Is there anything different this time?" it's just about the most blandest thing i could possibly have posted, should i have instead said "what's poppin this time daddy-o?" to convey how much of a cunt i am?>>2772
The milkshakes taste like condensed milk with shit thrown in, the soda's have unique flavors which is why each brand has different sorts of audiences, you will see normal people drinking diet anything from the cola brand then you will see unwise people drinking energy drinks that have more caffeine than a overpriced coffee from star cucks.>>2773I hope you enjoyed it,your highness.
I guess (you)'ll never know will you,
Nice, it looks great. I'm not sure if sauteed onion would be nice, but intuition is telling me it would be a nice addition.>>2772
Health drinks, and workout mystery liquid boils down to a couple of things you can make at home.
Don't become a slave to them, but widening what flavors are available is a neat pasttime.
Teas, extracts, and 'soups'.
Tea and stuff in water over time is good. Lemon water is a classic.
Taking the important bits out of vegetables and stuff and putting it into other stuff is useful, if time consuming.
'Soups' is a broad category for any kind of liquid. Mostly because I'm too lazy atm. By blending stuff, or, fermentation, or cooking it into a liquid that's drinkable one can get all sorts of benefits that taste good.>>2774>spoiler
Gotta spice it up. Pics are great for placing the reader into the correct mood.
Such as this example.
The words you choose are bland, ripe for emotional tainting.>pic related
Without the cute poner it's just a rebuke from a faceless antagonist force. Perhaps a bit arrogant considering previous poor word choices from myself. With the pony it's from someone who cares about you, and those in the thread concerned for the wellbeing of every anon.
Going the extra mile and placing yourself and the person you're speaking with on the same side. Usually with a positive about them or the action. It's exhausting, but maintaining a nice place is worth it. I think it's worthy price for myself usually. Except for those really terrible days, then it's enduring the storm till the bright sky is above head again.
Even if some of those pretty words are not 100% honest at the time, looking back they have a nugget of truth.
Sometimes things get out of hand, and it happens more often then not over long periods of time and exposure.
>>2777nice tripsI hope kek shows you how to make even more beer catsand maybe teach you better table manners.>>2778
This is the way i talk in real life and how i act as a human bean, i either am extremely bland or making myself laugh.
Sure someone might cry over my staleness and dryness, i have never acted like the most social tool in the shed, if i was to describe myself as a tool i would say that i sexually identify myself as a axe.
I do not like to portray myself through a facade as it is a ego enhancer or a manifestation of one's want to control how they are seen by others, i don't want to have a negative atmosphere around me but if edgy anons are crying over my incredibly over excessive edginess then i guess i will have to throw in a few more fuck (You)'s I'll try and stop playing as rough with the kids if it'll cause less tears, uncle anon.
Beer brats again
Tonight's experiment: Blue Cheese Bacon-wrapped, Evolved Beer Brats
The bleu cheese bacon bratwurst project was scrapped, after a few attendees expressed disdain for the rich tasty cheesr.
No matter, it was an extra batch, which = more sauce, which means,...Bacon-wrapped salmon and asparagus with 3x evolved beer brat sauce
I had long suspected - and rightly so - that among the variety of things this sauce goes good with - that the sauce pairs well with bacon-wrapped salmon and. I was correct
I used about 5/4" salmon strips, butchered and then frozen. I wrapped bacon around 6-7 thinner asparagus spears pressed against st the frozen salmon strip like a weird sushi roll. I sprinkled a decent amount of ground salt, pepper, and garlic Powder
Setting the grill at ~425 for 30 minutes, as well as an added 15 minutes, I cooked them bitches. They were fucking delicious
I also sprinkled them with dill weed before grilling.
After grilling, I poured beer brat sauce along them, and then sprinkled dried carmelized onions across the top. Like seriously, I am proud of how delicious this was.
Oh. Btw, when I made the beer brat sauce I added about a cup of bacon grease at the point I added the heavy cream. Not for the first time, I'm told this was the best tasting beer brats edition, and it is evidently likewise on the salmon and.
Play with your food
Blackjack is a favorite of mine, as it is not terribly difficult to make and is pretty cost efficient depending on what you put into it, oats aren't very expensive neither is butter or sugar and pretty much everyone has sugar or butter in their homes, gas mark 5 (190C, 375F) on the cobblestone furnace.
Demerara sugar, (215 grams) rolled oats, (215 grams, it's very important that it is rolled oats) butter, (120 grams) dark chocolate, (4 squares, the dark chocolate is 90%) golden syrup (4 tbsp), maple syrup, (1 tbsp) honey (1 tbsp) ginger, (1 tsp) cinnamon (1 tsp) and a half of a orange.
Make sure the oven is heated and turn on the 9th circle of hell to low.
Melt the butter until there is no blocks and is just liquid, make sure to stir it around.
Add in the sugar and mix in with the syrups. (pic 1)
Put the rolled oats in and mix with the rest of the shit until it looks like pic 2 and make sure there is no oats left on the sides of the pan.
Put the ginger, cinnamon and chocolate in and mix until it looks like pic 3.
Squeeze the orange into it then add the squeezed orange and mix it in.
Put applejack into a oiled baking tray and flatten her out like shown in pic 4.
Slap that bitch into the Auschwitz annihilator and wait 20 minutes then take out and cool for 15 mins.
That's it, i call it blackjack because it looks like i threw squid ink into it.
Last pic is the end result, just after taking it out of the Jew burner.
By the way demerara sugar is just good old fashioned slave cane sugar.
I missed alot of recipes. They look good.
Yolk, paprika, cayenne, and lemon juice.
Use about four egg yolks to over a baseball field and drench everything with leftover sauce.
Or use one-two for enough for a single serving.
1. Seperate yolks. (Use egg whites for all sorts of cooking applications, but not for this.)
2. Season with cayenne (paprika if you want)
3.Put the whisking pot, over some heated water to slowly cook it without scrambling. If you don't mind them raw, or have faith in other means methods or the power of lemon skip this.
4. Use a blender, a whisky boi, or beat the sob till it doubles in size.
5. Add lemon. Somewhere between an eighth and a fourth of a lemon. Half a lemon is too much. You can also add this before hand.
Optionally chill and then serve.
Egg(s), water, and edible acidic element. Lemon, vinegar, apple cider vinegar, rice wine vinegar, whatever. Keep it simple.
1. Get a pot of water, and acid of choice (lemon works, but use more than a half of a lemon for better white cohesion)
2. Get the water and acid mix boiling
3. Stir in a constant circle. (So the egg will follow the water movement and won't stick to the bottom or break)
4. Crack the egg in.
5. Cook to desired yolky doneness. 3-4 very yolky and maybe just undercooked. 4-5 jelly to done, 5-6 everything is solid and dead for sure.
6. Remove from water. (If you don't put it into an ice bath it will continue to cook. Optionally remove earlier)
You could use the egg water for a soup base (vinegar and other acids are handy to get that tricky calcium from bones) for a little extra protei, and acidic taste.
I should mention for the eggs to drop the temperature to a simmer.

Beer brats log, stargate 1488.69.1337
Our foodie mission has reached a new pinnacle; the acquisition of a phatty bbq smoke pit. Our maiden venture? Brisket.
In lieu of recent attempts to successfully integrate bacon fat into the beer brat sauce, I opted to boil the beer/brats with a healthy chunk of trimmed brisket fat. This became more essential as I realized that I was out of beef broth. Luckily, you can make beer broth from brisket fat.
So that's what I did. It worked pretty well, I give it a 7 overall, compared to previous attempts (the bacon fat experiment was a 9). I did have to use a bit of Worcestershire and teriyaki during the de-glaze, but overall I'm satisfied with the improvised recipe.
Bacon-wrapped beer brats with sauce injection!it sounds simple enough, but in order to bacon wrap beer brats you have to do a whole lot of funky monkey shit at intervals, but I'm satisfied with my tests and am gearing up to proceed>>2830
Eggs Benedict, my only weakness. How did you know??
It's the weekend again, so it's time for another beer brat experiment!
Today's experiment will involve 3 types of bratwurst preparations.
The first is plain barbecued bratwurst. No boiling, nothing fancy, just plain old slow-cooked wood-smoked brats on our new bbq pit. I'm so excited.
Next up, we have the most preferred beer brat recipe, the triple reduction, except the grill finishing will be done on the smoker.
And lastly, Im nixing the injection for now: smoked, bacon-wrapped, three-ccheese beer bratwurst with triple reduction sauce
Now for this recipe, I have to make 2 substitutions. One, I'm out of beef broth (still) AND cooking wine so for a de-glaze I'm using rice vinegar. And beyond that, I couldnt get any 211 steel reserve, so I'll be performing this rendition with Old Milwaukee. Fingers crossed, let's get cookin'!
Alright. First off, this experiment was a failure.
I over pre-cooked the bacon, which was still tender but cooked to the point that it wanted to break rather than bend. The problem with this experiment is that the bacon has to be started in the oven to finish at the same time as the melted cheese and the sauce glaze.
Better luck next time. I still succeeded in most of the experiment, which was,....
After boiling the brats, instead of letting them rest in the microwave, I threw them in the freezer to cool. Not fully, but enough that when I cut into them they dont spill open. With a 2/3 sliver through the brats, I added a 1/4" slice of extra sharp cheddar, and then took fresh-grated parmesan cheese and packed it in along the cheddar. Oh yeah, I nixed the bleu cheese because without the bacon wrap the cheese would just melt off. Bleu cheese tends to sorta liquify when you melt it, and without a casing, wrap, or other, it will just drip off.
So after the basic brats, theres triple redux smoked brats, and triple redux 2-cheesed brats
Let's taste the cheese first!
Okay, Ima need a sec
Uhm, honestly I dont know which is better. The sharp cheddar and parmesan cuts a little bit of the bite of the brat sauce, while giving it a mild background of flavor (mild, when contrasted with the other flavors). The mouth feel is also noticeably better.
Ngl, the cheezy brats were a failure on intended implementation buuuuuuuutttt,....
It's still better. I cant wait until next time, cuz I'll nail the blue cheese AND the bacon!
Looks good.>I nixed the bleu cheese because without the bacon wrap the cheese would just melt off. Bleu cheese tends to sorta liquify when you melt it, and without a casing, wrap, or other, it will just drip off.
What if you injected it into the brat?
I would also suggest nuts probably slivered almonds as well.I highly recommend roasted Hatch green chilles, that might cut through with the heat and it's different from other kind of peppers. Ghost pepper (not alot) thrown in while the brats boil would give a nice heat.
Indeed, I've been thinking that spice is the next layer of flavor/sensation to add, but so far I've only put thought in and no applied tests. Habaneros are a favorite for flavor, but I have a wicked ghost pepper sauce. Perhaps both with a bit of citrus to cut the intense heat.
Much to think about, until next time
Is pre-cooking your meals in big batches and reheating them before eating them based and redpilled or trash and cringepilled?
My old chemistry teacher did that despite his age he was fit. The gentleman had life experience and was/is respectable. Cooked for either the whole week or a month can't remember which. When he and his wife made a staggering amount of premade meals.
Bulk cooking is good, and fast, and potentially inexpensive. Getting experience cooking and tasting the right flavor might be more risky for trying new things that are more bizarre.
Also make sure it's a balanced diet over the course of the week. If you really crave something that's not sugar you might be missing something.
It's doable, have to make sure some vitamins don't decay or break down too much. So a bit of fresh zest to spruce up the meal might be a nice addition...
Its entry-level redpilled
dalmation rub, fresh coarse cracked pepper & kosher salt is ideal, 50/50
rub the brisket, put in smoker, big end towards flame
smoke at 200-250 for 2-3 hours
take brisket out, coat with bbq sauce, cover in foil, leaving top open
open beer, half for you, half gets poured in the brisket tin foil
cover top of brisket with foil, put back in smoker
smoke until internal temp is 203F (check fat end and skinny end) (buy a digital thermometer you mong)
take brisket out, let rest 30 minutes
that's my recipe for a shitty brisket, like what you would get served at a restaurant
for the best brisket you have ever had, add the following steps before cooking
when you bring the brisket home in the plastic cryopack, stash it in the back of the fridge, make sure it doesn't freeze
come back 4 weeks later, your brisket has been wet aged
I have wet aged as long as 6-7 weeks, it only gets better, but feels pretty dicey at that point
BWAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I FUCKING DID IT!!! AAAAAAAHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
Ahem. I decided tonight that it was time. So let's get into it.
Now, if you havent tried cedar plank grilling, I highly recommend it; it's like having a smoker except on easy mode. Gives food a kice smokey flavor. Just,... make sure it doesnt catch fire.
But anyway! The experiment was a complete success. The brats were prepared as usual up until cooling. Then were stuffed with a combination of fine grated gouda, finely diced blue cheese crumble, and extra sharp white cheddar. The salmon and asparagus bacon wraps were not an experiment, as I was trying to duplicate a previous result.
Bacon wrap worked (dont hesitate to use toothpics) on the brats, cedar plank worked on the brats, I'm rating this a 100% success! Keep playing with your food!
Not gonna go off the rails, just offering a bit of advice. If a store is selling "pork tenderloin" and it's 2lbs or more, expect it to be two loins and plan for it.
Also, not thrilled by pork wellington, and exceedingly skeptical of beef wellington now
What meals are good for preparing in bulk?
Chicken thighs, potatoes, vegetables, and salads.
Prepared 3 chicken meals today. They turned out good. Can't wait to eat them.
They were good.
Is there a way to cook chicken that's healthier than frying it?
Propane grill is my preferred method. Oven baked is a close second. If you fry, try to not use corn or canola oil, cuz trans fats get nasty when they are fried
Don't forget soups. A good chicken noodle soup is a remedy I do recommend. A nice pan sear is nice, and oven cooking opens up alot of different choices.
If retaining nutrition is a key factor steaming might be okay, but I haven't tried it with chicken. Smoking for preservation and flavor is really nice.
Fukking this. I omitted smoking cuz without the right setup it can be a hassle (and sometimes with) but seriously, smoking is a tremendous way to go if you can manage it. Lower cook temp means less wasted nutrients and better texture, great flavor (be choosy about your woods), and,... well theres really not much else to say than absolute patrician-tier.
I am a newfag at cooking and I've never smoked anything. How do you smoke chicken and get the right wood?
We have this thing called eðla. Take a mold, put a layer of cream cheese, then a layer of salsa (Doritos salsa works best for me), then a layer of shredded cheese. Optionally add pepperoni or something in between the salsa and shredded cheese. Put in the oven at 200°C until cheese is melted and optionally browned.
5 minutes to prepare, delicious, keto, and very healthy and nutritious.
You'll want hardwood to smoke with. Oak, Maple, Walnut, Pecan, Mesquite (not a tree, but still), Apple wood, Pear,... for a more comprehensive list and instruction, there are dozens of qualified BBQ enthusiasts on YouTube and other places that can give you a more authoritative rundown. A simple rule of thumb tho is, does it produce fruit or nuts?
Ngl, I'm kinda a noob at smoking, but I'll share what I've learned so far.
Aside from the wood (and yes, it IS worth spending a few bucks to get the right type of wood if u cant source it yourself), you will need a charcoal grill at bare minimum.
The process of smoking meats is essentially like using a charcoal grill, except you put a chunk or two of the aforementioned wood on the coals. Never hot enough to catch the wood on fire, you want the temperature between 200 and 250. Enough that the wood chunks smolder and produce plenty of smoke, without igniting.
From there, it's essentially a low and slow cooking method. You'll want to position the wood chunks as far from whatever vent is on your grill, with the meat in between, to draw the smoke across and through the food as it cooks.
Low and slow obviously takes more time to cook so plan accordingly, and you'll want a meat thermometer to check temperature with.
Made homemade corndogs last night, heres what I learned.
The recipe used was waaaaay too thin, and didnt adhere to the hot dogs well at all. If attempted, corndog batter should be the consistency of paste rather than batter, for proper adherence and thickness of breading on the finish.
Additionally, after the first couple it quickly became apparent that toweling off all the moisture from the hot dogs before coating helped the batter stick 'a little' better.
The flavor was decent, easily surpassing frozen condogs, however experimenting with other spices in the mix could easily improve the flavor.
If possible, a deep fryer will produce more consistent results and eliminate the need to turn them, which can further exacerbate any developing problems with the batter.
Obviously, dont use cheap hot dogs. Was on a budget so cheap pork/chicken franks were used. They weren't horrible, but better dogs = better corndogs.
Overall, I'm rating it 6.5/10. Again, superior to frozen corndogs, but plenty of newbie mistakes were made that have been detailed above, but which could have improved the overall experience to a 7.5-8. If used again, I'll start with 1/2 the indicated milk and maybe reduce by one egg.
Additional note: the recipe is labelled for 8 corndogs, but I had enough batter to make 16, further suggesting that the recipe is either incomplete or rather basic.
>>3323>Oak, Maple, Walnut, Pecan, Mesquite
Ok, listen up, I'll school you here. There's not a person on this earth that can tell the difference in wood used to smoke, except mesquite. It's all hype. Mesquite does have a distinctive taste, I do like it, many do not. Luckily, it's cheap, and considered a nuisance (watch for thorns). If you are using charcoal, you don't need the chunk of wood, though sometimes I do use one to increase the heat quickly at the start, or if I was lazy and let the heat dip too low during the cooking. >200 and 250
Yeah, I target 225 or so. Though if you smoke for 2-3 hours then use foil (texas crutch ftw), after the foil goes on, you don't have to worry about temperature as much.>you'll want a meat thermometer to check temperature with
agree 100%. Digital thermometer or go home. 203F, check brisket in thickest spot and opposite end.
for my formula. Don't underestimate the value of wet aging your meat, especially brisket.
Not to be contentious, but>not a person on this earth who can tell the difference
If they're using hardwood, you're probably right. But never ever ever use white wood (spruce, pine, fir, etc). Trust me on that.
Beyond that, I have insufficient experience to comment.
Ok, ok, among hardwoods. If you want your meat covered in creosote, go with the pine. Probably the last time you ever try that.
If you really want to be technical, some hardwoods give off more heat than others, I do sometimes use some boards from a buddy that does tae kwon do, they use a special lightweight hardwood that burns hot, it's good for a fast temp boost.
This is a public service announcement.
Hey anon, if you're like most anons you're probably gonna eat some pizza in the next week. While ordinarily harmless there is a hidden danger in preparing pizza, specifically oven-bake.
The 4 part cut.
Pizza is intended to give a particular experience, which includes mingled flavors, mouth feel, and ease of eating. And by ease of eating, having to wipe pizza grease/sauce off your face every time you take a bite because the person who cut the pizza is a lazy, inconsiderate, smoothbrained faggot, is definitely not it.
Heres a protip. If your pizza is 16" or more, make a 5 part cut.
<But anon! A 5 part cut is hard! It's not simplified into right ngles!
And that's exactly what a smoothbrain would say.
Not only does a 5 art cut take little more time and effort than a 4 part cut (at least, assuming you have more than 2 braincells to rub together) BUT the ease of eating and effective bite sizing (cuz you're not trying to play stratego on how to bite this time so to allow an optimal bite next time) lends its self to a better mouth feel AND a greater satisfaction of flavor and (most importantly) digestion. That's right, using a 5 part cut (10 slices, for any smoothbrain still somehow reading) can save lives.
Do your part anon, frens dont let frens lazy-cut pizza.
This message has been brought to you by a partnership of JESUS CHRIST WHAT DID YOU DO YOU LAZY GODDAMN BASTARD I GAVE YOU ONE JOB in association with the society for ITS PRONOUNCED FAIR-AH-DAY, NOT FAH-READY
Reeeee. A calzone is a totally different beast, but if its 16"+ on the diameter, u should still cut it into fifths like a decent and respectable adult. Have some consideration. Unless of course you're eating it all to yourself, in which case go run a marathon ffs, that's an absurd amount of food for one person.
So for today I found myself with about 1.5 lbs of leftover pork loin (not tenderloin) roast. I decided to make it tasty, and here's what I did!
First I put it on just under medium heat, added a tablespoon of bacon fat, mixed in about a tablespoon of sage (waited a moment then) oregano (waited a moment then,) dill (waited, then) a tablespoon of diced garlic. Let that simmer for about 10 minutrs.
Then I added about 1.5 tablespoons of katsu sauce, 2 tablespoons drizzled bbq sauce, And about 3 shakes of mirin. Mix well. Simmer for about 10 minutes
After about 10 minutes, lower heat to low. Allow sauce to incorporate, stirring occasionally.
I regret I have no lemons to zest, cuz I would. It's still tangy/salty/savory, and I think it would grind into a good meat-paste accent. Overall, its vastly more tasty than it was, and will incorporate better in food than it would have. Keep playing with your food. Especially leftovers, that's just grist for the mill. Do it.
Normally I get a big bag of frozen sausages from ASDA and fry some up for my cooked breakfasts(bacon, egg, sausage, beans, one tomato) but lately I decided to get frozen sausages and some bacon from a truck that's only around on some days.
The bacon was great and the sausages were bigger than the ASDA sausages therefore I thought they'd turn out better. But they were absolutely awful, full of inedible chewy chunks my knives struggled to cut through. The sausages also gave me diarrhea but I got better.
Not buying from that truck again.
Where is a man supposed to go to buy high-quality sausages for his cooked breakfasts?
How do you prepare healthy meals ahead of time in bulk for the week?
Usually with a grill, though sometimes with an oven
Not sure if this is the right thread for it but does anyone have a list of good food that help with gut bacteria?
Apparently good stomach health can help with your mind.
Of the top of my head eating a good diet (limiting sugar) so that only helpful microbes can reproduce.
Basically starving bad microbes that will gladly consume sugars. Fasting of various lengths may also help but that's kind of conjecture.
Also there are microbial transplants.
Try probiotic pills. Great way to jump start your gut microbiome.
Watch out for flatulence the first few weeks. I pop 2 a week now.
So basically just eat normal meat and vegies? With a bit of fruits for your small sugar fix?
I've heard that sunflower seeds are also good.
Anyone know others?
Wholegrain oats and cheese, cheddar and gouda is best for the gut out of all the cheeses, porridge with pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds would work too, a oat drink to use as an addition to smoothies with fruit.
Many nuts, as well as seeds (flax, hempseed, etc), yes.
Juicing (masticating, not centrifugal) of dark, rich (re: micronutrient content) vegetables (cabbage, mustard greens, etc) and as many cost-effective superfoods as is feasible. Farm fresh produce is highly encouraged, as is raw dairy, honey, and free-range non
-organic chicken eggs.
For meat, it is worth saving up and buying 1/4, 1/2, or even a whole butchered cow, both for quality, freshness, proce/quality, etc. Get a chest freezer if you can especially re: the previous.
Also, LEARN about nutrition, nutrition typology (specifically, yours and those who you prepare food for). Be aware of nutritional sensitivities and concerns.
PRACTICE (rlike, 90+% of the time) preparing healthy foods to the capacity of your means.
Sky's the limit, anon
Tl;dr Git gud
organic chickens can only be certified organic if they have been given a diet of exclusively organic food, which is chicken feed, which means they're not eating bugs (which are a chicken's natural diet) which is bad. Also avoid GMOs like they were a covid vaccine
If chickens can eat bugs why do the jews want us eating bugs instead of chickens?
You guys think dry coconut would count too?
There are a couple of reasons behind the notion of eating insects. The chickens are designed to digest insectoid proteins whereas we are not.>>3594

None of them is mine. Sadly.
Preserve Fresh Eggs For Up to 1 Year.
In that case, what would happen to bug-eaters? Viruses?
If mineral oil on skin disrupts estrogen does that mean men should rub it on their skin and keep it away from women?
Are "Fruit and nut bars" that are "cold-pressed" together without any cooking involved healthy? Are they a preferable alternative to commercially-available cereal bars, even the ones that claim to be healthy and made by scientists?
Just read the ingredients list.
If they cover them with added sugar and whatnot, they're unhealthy. If there's no additives, they're about as healthy as eating dried fruit and nuts.
Makes sense. Is "cold-pressing" good or just a marketing meme?
Probably a marketing meme, but there's nothing bad about it.
It supposedly has higher nutritional value because the machines don't use heat in the pressing process. Idk if that's significant though.
In theory, there are some nutrients in fruit and nuts that may be denatured under high heats. Cold pressing might also preserve the flavor of the ingredients.
Hey, food thread. Where would a thread for judging foreign food, especially low-quality street vendor food and "nigger cuisine"(for example chicken breasts coated in red bull and sugar and pop rocks and koolaid then microwaved or baked in an oven. I have literally seen niggers make this once) be appropriate? Shit like this https://youtu.be/t2sLCcNa7PM
is weird but this kind of discussion is usually censored/punished for "racism" on cucked sites.
First I posted this post, noticed an error, reposted it with the error fixed, and deleted the old post. then I realized my new post was replying to the old deleted one.

I believe this video is going to be a success in the kitchen.
The secret to making homemade ranch (without a spice mix) is parsley stalks.
Also MSG if you want something pretty close to store bought stuff.
Use mayonnaise, sour cream (easy thickening also to have the right consistency), milk (or cream or half and half or whole), and parsley especially including the stalks.
The ranch like flavor is at 90% completion.
Season to taste or use as is.
(To skip every thing else just add a metric fuck ton of MSG)
Also pepper, white pepper to keep the nice color (if you're using fresh parsley it might be turning slightly green).
Various other spices need to be used with restraint.
Half a pinch of garlic powder.
Half a pinch of onion powder.

Alright /ub/. Its been a while, so heres my best.
3lbs chuck roast, sous vide at 175 fr 9 hours, with(9h) carrots, celery, and onions
Its a 3lb chuck roast. The carrots, onion, celery, and fine diced garlic makes for.espganole sauce (pronounced Español) which is the base for ALOT of cooking sauces.
1.5 med diced onions
5 med diced large carrots
7 med diced large celery stalks
7 med smashed/diced garlic cloves
Ta da, Espagnole
I jumped ahead.
So the onions, the celery, and the carrots, at a 1.5/7/6 ratio (based on large size).
Oh, and 6-7 fine diced garlic cloves snd 2tbsp avocado oil.
Simmer the vegg mix until lightly brown, until sauce bits form onto the pan (fondt)
Add 625ml (3/4 bottle) red wine, simmer wine/veggie mix, mixing moderately to dislodge bits
Meat should be tender
sauce should have a strong flavor with a full spice bouquet .
The stewed veggies turn into a rich, moist, hash. The meat sauce is many times reduced for concentration.
Wow Im drunk, Ill translate in a few
Hello again fam, how's your cooking? Theres plenty of Youtube cooking shows, and a deep dive is highly advisable. I cant count how many new and unique flavor combinations Ive tried, and theres a wealth pf talent available at your fingertips.
But today, both because I just completed it for the second time (the first was delicious, but Im still developing my technique) I'd like to draw your attention to the unquestionably most delicious sandwich Ive ever tasted:
Chuck Roast Grilled Cheese sandwich.
First premiered in the early 2000's and quickly earning the proprietors the title of "Best grilled cheese in brooklyn", this sandwich is an event. It takes a bit of prep work to pull off, not least of which is making a red-wine braised Chuck Roast (and having leftovers).
If I could force you to eat this sandwich, I would. All credit to NOT ANOTHER COOKING SHOW (really, an awesome channel for anyone who likes cooking/experimenting, Ive made about a dozen of his recipes, and he hasnt failed me yet).https://youtu.be/7wR8cVyrD48
and the short rib (the recipe works well with most semi-fatty cuts of beef)https://youtu.be/9EHmJydeue0
Please, for the love of all that is delicious, set aside the time to make this sandwich, it will change how you think about a sandwich.
And, gruyere is often hard to find, but recently my local walmart started stocking it so hopefully itll be available, its by the smoked gouda. Its worth getting the right cheese, trust me. Couldnt find any buttercress, so I substituted spring mix.
There's not much else to say. Literally unbelievably good. Cheers
Whoops! THAT was NOT the right link, my badhttps://youtu.be/jdvSgfrI3Cw
Sourdough bread (fresh, unsliced)
thin layer of blackberry preserve (homemade)
layer of fine grated gruyere
leftover chuck roast, shredded
pickled red (or yellow) onions
Watercress (or spring mix) lettuce
layer of fine grated gruyere
Its a grilled cheese, so youll be toasting the bread while melting the cheese, and adding a thin layer of (recommended) garlic and olive oil aoli (mayo)
I cant... I cant even. This sandwich is so good, it causes mental fatigue. Seriously.
Started premaking my spaghetti bolognese in plastic containers.
When it's time to eat I microwave it, then put it into bread with some sandwich filler of the day and eat it.
