  3. A couple of things, one don't be suprised if they're not fully dressed once you've got them defrosted. Two I've deep fried them whole and they taste wonderfull that way.
  4. I'd love to answer the second one. Browning meat is caused by the interaction of amino acids and heat. It's called the malliard reaction after the french scientist who first described it. It's similar to but not the same as carmelization which is the interaction of sugars and heat. The malliard reaction does not require high heat (as in the case of reducing stocks) but a lot cooking methods that call for browning require it be done quickly with minimal heat ingress from the surface and finish cooking to the requisite doneness through some other means (Braise for stews, dry oven for steaks). The malliard reaction is generates hundreds of flavor compounds and is a big part of the artificial flavor industry. The complexity of the flavors generated by the reaction is the reason for browning meat.
  5. 14 bucks to sharpen one knife seems kind of stiff, add the 15 bucks for the shipping kit and the first sharpening is 29 dollars.
  6. I get mine done by the butcher in eastern market.
