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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Ingredients:
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.

Step 1.
Make sure the oven is heated and turn on the 9th circle of hell to low.
Step 2.
Melt the butter until there is no blocks and is just liquid, make sure to stir it around.
Step 3.
Add in the sugar and mix in with the syrups. (pic 1)
Step 4.
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.
Step 5.
Put the ginger, cinnamon and chocolate in and mix until it looks like pic 3.
Step 6.
Squeeze the orange into it then add the squeezed orange and mix it in.
Step 7
Put applejack into a oiled baking tray and flatten her out like shown in pic 4.
Step 8.
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.

I missed alot of recipes. They look good.

Eggs Benedict.
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.

Poached egg.
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)
7. Serve
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.

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.

Next time:
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

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!

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

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.
Very... utilitarian.
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...

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

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

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.

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.
