    What's a good thing to cook on those nights where you really don't feel like doing a big cook-up but want to eat something delicious?

    Steak.

    Take steak.

    Put in hot pan.

    Eat when you feel like it.

    so that's what I'm eating tonight

    I like to doctor it up with some curry powder and rooster sauce

    any other suggestions?

    I don't use the package seasoning. I'm on a low sodium diet, but poor as fuck.
    I use a quarter of vegetable bullion, and I add shelled edamame and green peas, as well as cayenne, black, and red pepper.

    ramen + a few sliced green onions + a few shrimp + a few re-hydrated shitake mushrooms + chicken or fish broth = Crazy Delicious

    Pretty much what I was coming in here to say.

    Here's the break down folks:

    Fire up your oven to 350.
    Make a bunch of aluminum foil squares
    In the center of each square place half a brick of ramen
    Top with (in this order): Mushrooms, peeled and deveined shrimp, onions, scallions
    Pour in a mixture of: Stock (veggie, chicken or fish), soy, mirin and some ginger if you're feeling it. Figure around a cup of liquid per square
    Place in oven for 15 minutes

    Take out of oven, dump into bowl, stir and enjoy.

    edit: hm, missed a step. After you place the ramen onto the square, you're going to want to pull up the sides of the foil into something like a volcano. It'll let steam escape the top while containing the ingredients and liquid.

    Man those little bananas that are really common in SE Asia are fantastic. They're really mini, their flesh is really yellow and they are just absolutely delicious.

    A big part of why I love the tropics is the abundance of delicious fruit. So good!

    I'm intrigued.. what exactly is this distinction from the typical method of boiling the noodles in broth?

  • StaleStale Registered User regular
    less liquid, concentration of flavor, bit of a roasty aspect to the veg/meat/noodles

    y'know I only recently learned how awesome grilled corn is, why has that taken me this long

    Never gone back to boiling it.

    boiling is just an awful way to cook vegetables

    I would respectfully disagree. If you're boiling the shit out of them so they're much and discoloured then yeah, but a quick blanche on carrots, beans, brussel sprouts and the like are just fantastic. Bright, colourful and crisp yum!

    Yes!

    My grandparents' generation tended to over-boil everything, so my mother was always afraid of doing the same, and so if anything she used to under-cook all the vegetables slightly. I grew up with crisp carrots and slightly firm peas, mm!

    I agree.

    Unfortunately when doing roast brussel sprouts this weekend I decided to par-boil them first (as the potatoes were nearly done), and I went to the bathroom and promptly forgot about the sprouts so... I waaaaay over-boiled them. Yuck!

    My grandparents are coming over this Sunday to see our new house. I'm trying to think of something to cook. My wife wanted to make her delicious stuffed shells, but I told her not to, because my grandfather hates Italian style food. I am thinking about some sort of pork, some veggie and something else, but I can't seem to make a decision.

    hit up a farmer's market, get yourself some squash, butternut if you can.

    Peel, cube, drizzle with olive oil, season, sprinkle on some paprika. roast at 400.


    Serve alongside some greens and a nice pork loin.

  • DouglasDangerDouglasDanger PennsylvaniaRegistered User regular
    That's a good idea.

    I want to make that potato salad too, probably not for the same meal though.

    tried it, it was wonderful
    boiled a cup of water and poured it in a bowl to make a broth with vegetable bullion, cayenne, red and black pepper
    diced onion and yellow squash, put it on the dried noodles with some frozen peas
    baked with soy sauce after adding the broth

    it certainly improved on the quality of eating ramen

    Oh, and in case it might concern you, I heard on NPR that there is a pretty strong peanut shortage this year, so make sure you get your stock of peanut butter before prices go up.

    what is the difference between roasting something and baking it?

    how do i go about roasting the squash
    what sort of dish do i put it on
    etc

    I play games on ps3 and ps4. My PSN is DouglasDanger.
  • DrZiplockDrZiplock Registered User regular
    You can just dump it onto a cookie sheet/sheet pan if you've got one.

    If not, an oven proof dish will do.

    The difference between baking and roasting, I think, is merely one of amount of liquid in the dish, but I could be wrong.

    And Agent O: Glad to hear that it worked out well for you.

  • DruhimDruhim Registered User, ClubPA regular
    In general parlance, baking and roasting are often used somewhat interchangeably. More technically, baking tends to rely more on convection and generally uses lower heat and longer cooking times, but there's no hard and fast line that separates the two.

    never considered peeling garlic all that difficult, you just crush the clove with the flat of a knife and remove the peel
    however that is a pretty nifty trick if you need to do a whole head of garlic

    belruelotterav-1.jpg
  • DrZiplockDrZiplock Registered User regular
    Yea, peeling isn't tough really. But peeling a lot of it is a bit of a pain in the ass.

  • JavenJaven Registered User regular
    It's also a great way to peel a lot of garlic at once, especially while keeping all the paper nice and neat in the bowl. I hate peeling garlic on a cutting board because it's sticky and even when you get most of it oh missed a small piece that got over here and oh there's one over there and whatever fuck it I'll just clean the goddamn counter later

    Chicken schmaltz question for all yalls:
    I like chicken thighs, and we've been baking them a lot lately. Next day, in the baking dish, I grab a left over, and I notice 2 things. (1) There is a nice layer of easily removed fat on time of my runoff juices. (2) My runoff juices seem to have become chicken jello. We do marinate our chix thighs in soy, usually with ginger, pepper, or.something for a little more flavor. Question is, can I make a chix gravy (or something else?) with my gelatinized chicken runoff scmaltz?

    New out of context sig?
  • DruhimDruhim Registered User, ClubPA regular
    The gelatin is basically from the collagen in the skin and bones of the chicken released during cooking. Hell yeah you can make gravy with that schmaltz. Or what we like to do is when we roast a whole chicken we add carrots and potato and sometimes some leek to the roasting pan about 15-20 min in and let them roast in the chicken drippings.

  • DrZiplockDrZiplock Registered User regular
