  3. That sauce is recipe is OK - it has some of the ingredients that make your sauce at home taste like you get in an American Chinese restaurant (not claiming it's authentic Chinese). To get that flavor you also need to add a touch of red pepper flakes. Not enough so you feel the heat, but there's an undertone you need from them. As someone who doesn't like spicy hot things, I always left the pepper flakes out, but a cooking class taught me different. Sesame oil, garlic, fresh ginger and sugar are also key ingredients, but they are in that sauce recipe. I would probably omit the water and vegetable oil and up the sugar, but I also use cream sherry which also adds sweetness. FWIW, I haven't used oyster sauce in years - just soy. Bu then I usually also add Hoisin sauce because I like that flavor profile, and I don't have any issue with LKK's version.

    Because sometimes you need something quick and easy (and you need something to do with the leftover beans):
  8. I have done 4 minutes high pressure, 4 minutes release, then ice water. Have done this 5 times with consistent results.

    Yes, I have. That’s what search is for. Cook then broil.

    Carnitas in the Instant Pot again, served with salad, refried beans and Spanish rice. The rice was from a pouch - Uncle Ben's Ready Rice and was very good considering it only took 90 seconds to make.

    I wish there was a non-dairy (or lactose-free) alternative to the nonfat dried milk.

    Sure. I took some panko, toasted it in a skillet until mostly golden. Mixed it with some seasonings (I cheated and used McCormick's Montreal Poultry Rub), salt and pepper. Put the moist pork chops in a baggie with the panko mixture and shake until well coated. Then I cooked them on a rack in my countertop convection oven at 350F with convection for 20 minutes. Didn't turn them. Serve.

    Dinner tonight was pork chops, made like ShakeNBake, but I made my own breading out of pre-toasted panko, spices, salt and pepper. Served with white corn on the cob, made with the husk-on microwave method and salad.

    Some recent meals: NY Steak, cooked SV then seared, served with sweet potato with butter, snap peas cooked ALV and salad. The second piece was part of my wife's that she had portioned down. BBQ-style chicken, cooked in the BSOA, that I burnt the skin on a little but it was excellent and really juicy, served with mashed cauliflower and chives, and salad. Prime sirloin I scored yesterday from Costco that wasn't out, but I asked the butcher if they had any whole pieces in the cryovac. He brought out a nice piece at just $5.49 a pound. I cut it into steaks, bagged and froze them. Cooked SV with dill seeds, then seared. Served with salad and glass of Lodi Old Vine Zin. (Excuse the ragged cut, my wife cut her piece off with the grain.)

    Home Made Ice Cream (2015– )

    I stand corrected. But I'd go into one of the parlors and ask to see the ingredient list. If they ask why, tell them food allergies.
