Sunny side vs both sides fried?

Post common foods that look so disgusting to you that you never tried them.
Pic related, I understand it should taste alright but it looks so fucking repugnant I want to puke while just looking at it.

>Fish sauce will be the next big ingredient people find a way of putting into everything
>Okonomiyaki is on deck next after KFC peaks and will soon be found in every Japanese and Korean restaurant in the US
I have some Viet Huong fish sauce I've tried using on a few things and I find it hard to believe that many americans would find it appealing on anything.
Okonomiyaki, on the other hand, could get some appeal in the US. Especially if restaurants did what they already did to sushi and cover it in sauces and shit.

>DUDE ADDING ICE CUBES TO COFFEE SOMEHOW MAKES IT BETTER LMAO
Parents say I'm not allowed to live with them and commute to college, so now im stuck living on my own with zero cooking skills. I've got about 2 months to learn how to make decent meals. Help a brother out /ck/? What are some must-have resources/materials for learning how to not die of starvation.
What's your budget like?
You need protein to live. That means meat and vegetables, your choice. You can get all the protein you need from vegetables should you so choose.
I used to live off of steamed red potatoes, carrots and broccoli. Saute some mushrooms with onions and it's a gourmet meal.
Buy yourself a rice cooker. Worth every penny. Buy decent rice (like Bob's Red Mill)
Buy a salad spinner. Salads are cheap and healthy, you can put anything you want in them.
Eat fruit. No cooking involved!
Drink plain water. I like distilled water. Avoid soda pop and sugar fruit juice.
If you have an actual kitchen (I had a hot plate and a toaster oven) then you can cook all kinds of simple things. Roast chicken is super easy and you can use any leftovers in salad.
Eggs are cheap protein. Hard-boil/steam them and use them in salads. Learn to make an omelet. Generally don't cook eggs over high heat, it'll make them weep on the plate.
Do NOT live off of pizza and ramen and burgers. That's just sad. And expensive.
Stir fry. Get a big cast iron pan smoking hot, have your ingredients prepped, put in a splash of sesame oil and toss in vegetables like bok choi, mushrooms, scallions, et cetera. Serve with rice (remember the rice cooker?) and you've got a great meal.
If you have a GRILL... let's save that for another post...
Don't starve. Don't stress.
MY FAVORITE FLAVOR OF ICE CREAM IS ...
What the fuck, I've been lied to. Everyone says nonstop that burger king is the worst fast food chain by a mile, so I stayed away, but that's a fucking load. I'm not gonna say it's some quality meal from an actual restaurant, but I'll be fucked if they didn't make me something that tasted like a decent hamburger with completely acceptable vegetables on it. And the fries weren't too salty.
What the fuck is wrong with the mcdonalds and wendy's shills, have they never tasted a hamburger? This was way better than any burger I've ever gotten from those places.
Again, it's not like some revelation in cuisine but I'm confused why everyone calls it trash?
The king is decent for fast food. At the end of the day it comes down to convienence. I wont drive an extra mile for it though i might as well go home and make something. But if its on the way whatevrr
Let me hear your go to salsa recipes /ck/
Can't go wrong with a nice Tomatillo Avocado Salsa.
-5 medium tomatillos
-1 cup of cilantro
-2 jalapenos and 1 serrano( whole for spicy, seeded for mild)
-2 garlic cloves
-1/2 cup of milk
-salt to taste(I like to use adobo)
Boil the peppers, garlic, tomatillos for no more than 5 min, anything else and the flavors will go bland. Add to a blender
with rest of ingredients, blend to a smooth consistency.
Pairs nicely with carne asada, tacos at pastor especially, just about anything.
I'm a big fan of tomatillo avocado salsa. Its a staple at our house.
This is a picture of my salsa quemada.
I just mix fresh cut sweet corn, avocado cubes, tomatoes, tomatillos, jalapeno, garlic, red onion, black beans, cilantro, and whatever other produce that I have laying around, and douse in lime juice and salt. No recipe really, just a good way to get some more produce into the diet and make other dishes (e.g., dirty rice) taste fresher.
does /ck/ ever make homemade beef jerky? I made a batch in the dehydrator, bretty tasty. I think I sliced it too thin though and let it dry too long, its crunchy. Doing a second batch now, will dry less this time.
Any tips for making it good? Marinade recipes? Best cuts of meat? I just bought a big lean rump roast and sliced it very thin myself with a meat slicer, I used a premade teriyaki marinade.
Always cut against the grain, ALWAYS. Drying and curing meats makes them tougher, so doing everything to can to keep them tender is in your best interest. Cut against the grain and use a marinade with salt. Salt will help tenderize, cure, and protect it from nasty stuff growing on it.
See second venison recipe.
If I want it gamey (I love that flavor), I usually use a simple marinade with soy sauce, water, cracked black pepper, that's it
If I want to take some of that wild flavor out, I simmer about 1 part soy sauce and 2 parts water with a bay leaf, minced garlic, chili flakes, and few tablespoons of dark molasses or buckwheat honey. Optional: add a few cloves or a pinch of cinnamon.
Cool that marinade, slice the venison, marinade at least 24 hours, dehydrate.
Cook through or get a dehydrator that goes above 160F always.
I usually keep it simple with some salt, lemon, and cracked pepper, marinade, cook, dehydrate. You can also grind chicken up rather easily for a powdery jerky like that pseudo chew kids like.
Just cure it with lye or salt, fish jerky is gross.
I don't see the value in marinating for jerky, I mean sure some seasoning is necessary but dehydrating tends to magnify the marinade to the point where it's easy to over power the meat. if you're not using shit tier meat then just rubbing it with salt pepper and garlic powder and letting it rest for thirty minutes or so before you start drying it, is plenty of flavor
What are the best regional foods from Chicago? I know the deep dish and hot dogs get the most attention but I heard about they have their own kind of italian roast beef hoagies pic related and they have a blend of peppers they put on stuff called giardiniara.
Pic related, the chicago sandwich.
My first thread ever on this board. I need to cook something simple, not so expensive, and high protein. I will go out to buy any ingredients needed. So give me a recipe and I'll show results.
There are so many cheap sources of protein!
Would you like ideas to get the most out of eggs, beans, or cheap ethnic store meat?
(Be brave. Chicken hearts are pennies per pound and delicious.)
I cook this regularly - very little work and surprisingly delicious.
I put in some diced, smoked pork belly, too.
Going away and wont have much to do, you lads know any quality cocktails I can try out? (make myself) Just Give me a list of ones you like and ill give them a go, just need some ideas of drinks to start with.
Nothing overly basic like martini's, but anything else goes fruity or stiff.
Give me some unconventional ideas for desserts that use puff pastry.
this, from Ina Garten:
not a dessert but great with drinks before dinner
