    I've got a chunk of pork butt/shoulder (i feel like they're the same, but clearly those are opposite ends of the beast), in a slow cooker all day today soaking in teriyaki. Cannot. Wait. Gonna put it on rice and brussel sprouts.

    My brother is a chef and whenever he cooks dinner at someone's house the mashed potatoes always get praised. The secret is a fuckton of butter like 1:1 butter to potato ratio.

    I feel like mashed potatoes are the thing everyone should know this works with.

    Pork butt and pork shoulder aren't quite the same thing. The butt is the actual shoulder, with the shoulder blade, and the shoulder is the upper front leg. Dunno why, but there it is.


    In other news, wrapping a Hebrew National kosher dog in a slice of bacon and deep-frying it has left me feeling vaguely uneasy. Absolutely delicious, though.

    I have a pork shoulder thawing right now. Going to throw it on the smoker Monday. Sunday might be ribs. We'll see.

    See that's the thing, Carla and Molly in the test kitchen did this exact thing at Thanksgiving last year and people have not stopped talking smack about it

    I did pizza on my grill grates last year as an experiment. It came out fine, the ridged crust was definitely interesting. But getting pizza in and out of the grill/oven is already stressful enough without making the pizza ribbed for my pleasure, so the next time I just put the pizza stone on the grill. Much easier.

    I am eating Timbits cereal.

    Birthday cake flavour.

    It is fine.

    I have wondered about it. Is it just like... frosted cornpops?

  • ChicoBlueChicoBlue Registered User regular
    Not really frosted.

    They're slightly denser than Corn Pops.

    They do taste like birthday cake flavoured things.

    I’m really glad I made that yesterday.

    If I didn’t, it would have been a huge missed steak.

    Welcome to the real world, where Gordon Ramsay cares for us all. It is 2022, and the only food available is Gordon Ramsay's frito pie. We either eat it, and work our shift at the gland-extraction plant, or go hungry.

    The man cooks pasta in oiled water. There is no way I can trust him when it comes to cooking.

    I've always just used plain tap water - not even salt - but I've seen people here talking about adding a splash of oil. Don't?

    Definitely don't oil pasta.
    Oil will coat the pasta, which makes it less able to soak up juices from the sauce.

    Ideally pasta should be cooked in plenty of water with a fair amount of salt in it. Pro-gastronomists (ie, scientific chefs) generally cook their pasta in shitloads of kosher salt (like, a tablespoon for a half-gallon of water). Absolutely don't do that with iodized salt though.

    Why plenty of water? I always boil whatever I'm boiling in just enough water for the thing. Doing otherwise gives me Excessive Energy Consumption Anxiety

    Because when you cook pasta it will dissolve starch into the water. Too much and the pasta will stick to each other and create clumps of pasta. Which is generally not what you want.

    P.S: It will also reduce its ability to absorb water. Which will make it less tender.

    Oh right. I solve the tenderness problem by forgetting about it and letting it boil until it turns into a smooth paste.

    Because it prevents bubbling up, I won't be stopping.

    I put in the oil (just a small glug) to stop the pasta sticking. I also used lots of water.

    If the oil doesn't stop the sticking, then it's just a waste.

    Also, using pasta water in cooking is a new thing I do and it is good

    I've never had trouble with pasta sticking after the first stir once it's started to soften.

  • SorceSorce Registered User regular
    I made pasta for dinner!

    I used Wal-Mart brand pasta + marinara, but there was some cut up chicken in there, which makes everything better.

    It’s the whole reason I even made the steak in the first place.

    I use the cold water pasta method. It’s so much faster and better. Not good for long, thin noodles but great for stuff like ziti, elbows, etc.

    And much less water.

    Ok, they're pretty good! Not as hot as I was expecting, but I'd 100% definitely binge a share pack myself and regret it the next day.
