Anyone got any great steak marinade recipes they'd like to share?

Alexander B. - SC 2017-07-27 02:50:56  

What kind of flavor profile are you going for, my dude?

Honneur et Patrie 2017-07-28 02:07:23  

I've been big into the soy sauce based stuff lately, like last week I did a soy ginger marinade with some chili garlic in it that turned out pretty awesome.

Alexander B. - SC 2017-07-28 04:48:24  

Oosh nice

Alexander B. - SC 2017-07-28 04:48:42  

Have you ever used fish sauce?

Alexander B. - SC 2017-07-28 04:50:07  

= parts "three crabs" brand fish sauce and sugar. Then add minced ginger/garlic/shallot/scallion/mint/basil makes for an amazing marinade if you enjoy Asian flavors

Whisk the sugar around in the sauce, and as it sits it'll slowly dissolve in.

Honneur et Patrie 2017-07-28 04:55:45  

I have actually never cooked with Fish Sauce. I definitely have to try it out

A sidenote on soy, use it conservatively as it is likely that it lowers testosterone.

Fish sauce is one of my favorite things to use as a marinade. You can't substitute the flavor of fish sauce with anything else. It's really unique, especially if you love those Asian flavors as much as I do

Hungarian Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Joseph McCarthy - NJ 2017-07-29 05:56:00  

Hard earned Pro-Tip: Wash your hands immediately after cutting or handling any kind of hot pepper, especially if you plan on scratching yourself at any point in the near future.

Joseph McCarthy - NJ 2017-07-29 05:56:25  

Alternatively, have a box of disposable gloves handy in your kitchen.

Alexander B. - SC 2017-07-29 05:57:19  

@Erika you gotta tell me what's going on with that dish

Alexander B. - SC 2017-07-29 05:57:29  

It looks refreshing af

Alexander B. - SC 2017-07-29 05:58:20  

And, yeah, can confirm. Not to be too graphic, but many a line cooks have fallen victim to the fatal error of processing peppers and then taking a bathroom break. Sad!

Marlow 2017-07-29 06:38:23  

@Honneur et Patrie don't forget the sesame oil!

Erika 2017-07-29 12:16:30  

@Alexander B. - SC the salad contains
◾️3 cucumbers (seeded and mostly peeled). The English cucumbers weren't on sale, so I had to buy the hothouse cukes which require more prep to avoid them getting soggy in the salad.
◾️1 and a half yellow onions thinly sliced and rinsed in ice water.
◾️1lb of cherry tomatoes, halved.
◾️8oz of sour cream.
◾️the juice of one lemon + half the lemon zest.
◾️fresh dill, 1 minced garlic clove, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper to taste. Let sit in the fridge overnight!

Erika 2017-07-29 12:17:07  

My Polish grandma taught me the recipe and she learned it from her mom. Seriously my favorite salad. Extremely refreshing.

Deleted User 2017-07-29 12:57:14  

Damn, that sounds and looks delicious

Deleted User 2017-07-29 12:57:42  

Definitely going to give it a try

Just started my Bavarian beer and sauerkraut roast.

Strategically placed basil.
Looks dank.

Dan iiii 2017-07-29 15:14:48  

Would devour

Grenadier 2017-07-29 15:15:07  

That thing on top is actually a Bay Leaf

Grenadier 2017-07-29 15:19:50  

There's also a layer of Pearl Onions under all the kraut. I wonder if I should have mixed them, but I don't think it will make any difference.

Dan iiii 2017-07-29 15:20:47  

It's in a crock pot I'm sure the flavors will intermingle by themselves.

Grenadier 2017-07-29 15:20:54  


Joseph McCarthy - NJ 2017-07-30 01:09:55  

I actually did a mess load of meal prep last night with haul from the farmers market if anyone wants a quick run down

TweakySilver-TN 2017-07-30 01:10:53  

Can you give me a quick rundown

Joseph McCarthy - NJ 2017-07-30 01:23:07

Joseph McCarthy - NJ 2017-07-30 01:23:32  

Hit up the farmers market first off

Joseph McCarthy - NJ 2017-07-30 01:25:21  

Half the tomatos, corn, and green beans were already gone when I took that photo

Joseph McCarthy - NJ 2017-07-30 01:25:47  

Total cost for the produce was like $35

Jersey Fresh fam

Joseph McCarthy - NJ 2017-07-30 01:39:27  

The peaches are amazing right now, juicier than the tomatos even
