Does anyone else on /ck/ adore egg foo young?
>Does anyone else on /ck/ adore egg foo young?
It's comfort food. A local place near me does a really light version filled with huge mushrooms and lots of scallion and water chestnut. I get it when I'm sick...white rice, egg foo young, won ton or egg drop soup.
Oh hell yes. If a chinese joint has a good, rich gravy I find myself ordering it almost too often. My favorite is when it's loaded with onion with just enough cabbage to hold the shape. Get me a roast pork egg foo young and some fried rice and that's about the best you can provide for me.
Apparently some people in my area love to pour a shitload of the gravy over rice even if they don't actually order the egg foo young. I don't really get that because I'd rather get a big forkful of rice with the omelette and let the gravy that's already...

What's the best pizza dough recipe out there?
/ck/, how do you tell someone their cooking is shit, nicely? I'm sure all of you have eventually had to tell someone to stop, because they don't know what they are doing.

However I can't take it anymore. I've decided to break it to him that his food sucks. I just don't know how.
I can post nightmare stories from his cooking methods if you'd like, in exchange for advice on helping me break it to him. Stories guaranteed to make you cringe and reevaluate your life. I just don't really know where to start. So request and I'll tell some tales while I figure out how to do this.
You're probably just posting this because mommy bought you mint chip instead of rocky road, so I'll tell you right now.
You really only deserve that face if you've put some in your garden and woke up the next day to see that it took over your entire garden.

Hi fellow Chefs, wanna have a discussion
I was wondering if you have alternate and unique ideas in what to put in a Tuna Wrap?
I'll in turn post a smashing recipe in return.
There we go now we got a thread going.
Anyway so I'll get some turkey slices and put them on its own to make a extremely plain turkey wrap.

Have you ever made something so bad not even your pet would eat it?
When one of my pets die, I stew it and serve it up to its replacement.
One time I got a dog that for some reason wouldn't eat the stewed cat I had made. So I shot it. I was so angry that I didn't get another one and don't own pets anymore.
I made smoked pork loin with a mustard and peanut butter crust, roast potatoes cooked in beef fat, steamed broccoli, sage and onion stuffing, beef suet dumplings, mushroom duxelles made with honey JD and chicken gravy with crispy bacon pieces.
away from home again this christmas, but my family sent me some stuff from omaha steaks. how can I cook this thing? supposedly it's partially cooked, so do I just need to get it browned on both sides?
how cooked do you like it? what does it say about how much they were cooked? were they cooked low temp to 57C or something? i've never heard of buying partially cooked vacuum packed steaks before. just fry it like a normal steak and you'll most likely be fine though. a par-cooked then chilled steak won't really cook much faster than a raw steak assuming you're taking them both to the same temp.
since it came in a boiling bag, just boil it water for about an hour
What are you eating/doing today, Jews? I'm thinking about getting some Chinese food later. It's not like I'm out of food at home, but I feel like I should for tradition's sake.
What's your favorite Chinese food meal to eat on Christmas? I'm looking for suggestions because I'm willing to try something new (I usually get lo mien or shrimp with lobster sauce)
>Pagan ex-soldier here
Was always too tired from duty to cook,which formed my little families tradition of having thai or chinese food. For me christmas is savory japanese dishes and milk tea or some searing hot pumpkin curry and thai coffee
>that fuzzy yet estatic feel you get when someone really enjoys what you have made for them, audibly making noises in the first few bites of pleasure
It's a real good feel.
Got a boiled lobster. Suggestions?
Simple is best OP.
Either melt some butter and toast a lovely roll in butter, or make a luscious dip. The alternative is mayo, homemade of course, with that little tang of fresh lemon juice.
Wanna go full yum, then make a stone crab dip a la Joe's Stone Crab with that fresh mayo, and use it for your lobster salad roll idea.
Anyone here drink Soylent (or other brands of the same kind of thing) or make their own DIY soylent?
I've been considering using it to replace most of my meals for convenience and price.
