pork chops (just marinated and cooked on the george foreman),


I make some baked pork chops that come out really good. Basically you season the chops with some salt, pepper, and brown sugar, then place them in a baking dish. Pour in enough apple cider to cover the chops. Cover and bake at 350 for about 45 minute to an hour.




that sounds pretty bitchin, i might try that tonight. i find things to do with porkchops are limited. any good side for that meal?

Do you guys ever wash the rice?

It's not meant to make it sanitary. I'm not sure exactly what it rinses off, but you can definitely taste the difference.

There's a fair difference between how sushi/japanese/sticky rice is supposed to turn out and how indian/basmati rice is supposed to turn out.

Unfortunately I've only ever cooked the former.

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

I think the last time I made that we had a baked potato and carrots on the side. Be sure the check the chops around 30-40 minutes so they don't get overdone.

Also, sprinkle a little cinnamon in the apple cider.

nice thread, house my man! we should all swap recipes and make a shizz cookbook.

i can cook a lot of things. i make good chili, in my opinion, and i think i could make an even better chili if i got more ingredients than the ones we use at work. i can make lots of delicious soups, i love making baked chicken dishes and all that sorta stuff.

i am not so good at grilling but i would love to become a charcoal grill master.

rice cooker, bitch! we've got a nice toshiba one from japan that whips out awesome rice in like a half-hour. stir-fryed vegetables with some soy sauce and i'm set.

AMEN! I need one badly but I've borrowed a friends and it makes amazing rice...I've used sushi rice, basmati, and another long grain that I can't remember...

The secret ingredient is a crockpot.

Also another great investment. You can make delicious stews with tender meat very easily, though it seems to always require long cooking times...can you use a crockpot and make something in 20 minutes?

I make some baked pork chops that come out really good. Basically you season the chops with some salt, pepper, and brown sugar, then place them in a baking dish. Pour in enough apple cider to cover the chops. Cover and bake at 350 for about 45 minute to an hour.

That sounds utterly amazing...I'ma gonna make those soon


Do you guys ever wash the rice?


What's the point? You're putting it in boiling water...


You can wash a lot of starch off by washing 2-3 times. My mom always washes the rice, it makes it taste cleaner. I always wash my rice but you need to be careful not to break it or overwash it (it can lose some of its nutrients, although I wasn't aware that rice HAS other nutrients...).


I love cooking, it's a science and an art (god I'm lame) and it can be really, really rewarding, especially if you cook for someone else and it turns out well. That said, cooking for just one can also really be boring/a chore/uninspiring....plus when I'm hungry I wanna eat, not wait and cook and smell delicious smells and THEN eat 20-60 minutes later.

My most precious cooking utensils are a wrought-iron skillet and a wok. The skillet makes preparing steaks REALLY easy...heat it up, add some canola oil (or other oil of choice) and a little bit of butter...throw on the meat and cook as you please. I always go for medium rare unless I know the meat is good (from a butcher) in which case I just lightly cook it, give it to me bloody.
The wok make stirfrying a dream...I'm still learning about stir frying meat though....marinating it beforehand may make sense but what I have discovered is when stir frying you don't want water in there as it'll boil the meat which is GROSS. So this is what I plan to try: stir fry the meat briefly in some oil and set it aside. Throw in some vegetables such as broccoli, snow peas, and celery and briskly stir fry as well. Throw the meat back in with the veggies and then add the marinade. For marinade I make this:
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon aji mirin or sake
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil (not roasted)
  • a smattering of sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
Scale it up as needed for the amount of meat you use. The meat should be sliced into very thin strips to ensure even and quick cooking, but YMMV.

Ok enough of this, I'm going to Super 88 for some delicious vietnamese food.

edit: oh yeah, Colin is the best griller, period.

A friend of mine got me a gas ignited charcoal grill for a baby gift and it is seriously the best thing ever. 5 minutes with the gas gets the charcoals ignited and on their way so there's no lighter fluid taste. That thing was my best friend, confident, (lover) 4 out of 7 days a week this past summer. I want to become a polygamist so I can marry the fucking thing.

Grilled swordfish with my above mentioned marinade all day long.

EDIT: Next year I am building a smoker. I cannot wait.
