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

Alexander B. - SC 2017-07-28 04:51:39

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!

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.

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

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

I basically cut up everything but the corn, tomatos, peaches and baked them in the oven. Also put together four pounds of lean ground turkey with eggwhites and jalapeños, spread it onto a baking sheet and cut it into strips so I could add it to the meals
