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

2017-07-27 02:50:56 UTC  

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

2017-07-28 02:07:23 UTC  

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.

2017-07-28 04:48:24 UTC  

Oosh nice

2017-07-28 04:48:42 UTC  

Have you ever used fish sauce?

2017-07-28 04:50:07 UTC  

= 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.

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

2017-07-28 04:57:04 UTC  

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

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.

2017-07-29 05:56:25 UTC  

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

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

2017-07-29 05:57:29 UTC  

It looks refreshing af

2017-07-29 05:58:20 UTC  

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!

2017-07-29 06:38:23 UTC  

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

2017-07-29 12:16:30 UTC  

@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!

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

2017-07-29 12:57:14 UTC  

Damn, that sounds and looks delicious

2017-07-29 12:57:42 UTC  

Definitely going to give it a try

2017-07-29 14:49:17 UTC  

Just started my Bavarian beer and sauerkraut roast.

2017-07-29 14:49:21 UTC

Strategically placed basil.
Looks dank.

2017-07-29 15:14:48 UTC

2017-07-29 15:15:07 UTC  

That thing on top is actually a Bay Leaf

2017-07-29 15:19:50 UTC  

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.

2017-07-29 15:20:47 UTC  

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

2017-07-29 15:20:54 UTC  

Exactly

2017-07-30 01:09:55 UTC  

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

2017-07-30 01:10:53 UTC  

Can you give me a quick rundown

2017-07-30 01:23:32 UTC  

Hit up the farmers market first off

2017-07-30 01:25:21 UTC  

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

2017-07-30 01:25:47 UTC  

Total cost for the produce was like $35

2017-07-30 01:28:20 UTC  

THAT'S BEAUTIFUL

2017-07-30 01:39:27 UTC  

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