  1. Its also the main ingredient in my self proclaimed famous pecan pie. I just don't get why people make such a big deal about it, like its so much worse then table sugar. Whas going to be the next "bad fad" 5 years from now?
  2. One of the best BBQ sauces on the KCBS competition circuit uses corn syrup. Karo w/vanilla to be specific.
  3. I froze them since i didn't know what to do with them and they were a few days from there sell by date which is why they were dirt cheap. But they looked meaty, so i am surprised by the comments of them being mostly fat. Im wondering if they get fattier as you slice them? Kind of reminded me of bacon ends which is like thick pieces of cured pork belly scraps which can also be meaty.

    Bastard condiments?

    Indian pickle, is that the stuff that is extremely sour and has that spoiled taste? It looks like relish? Me and the wife went to a Indian buffet, we both tried it, my wife couldn't get her bite down. I struggled. Needless to say, Indian food isn't for us. The Naan bread and goat kabobs were pretty much the only items we loved, but not worth another trip.
  6. I normally dont come across this in the Grocery. It was cheap. I got a few cheeks. My initial thought was to slice it thick and sous vide it for a long @$$ time and quick fry it on high heat to crisp it up. But after that, im not sure what to do with it, lol.

    Broiling Tofu

    I was actually being serious. Its like a really, really fried egg. I was given by mistake tofu w/broccoli and thought they added really thick fried eggs to it, till i realized my chicken w/broccoli was missing chicken.
  8. Negative. Everything is dry ingredients. You may be thinking of the chow mein brand, i think they include a liquid package with theirs. This is Yakisoba brand. They are usually $1 and come in a plastic rectangle container.

    yum fried sponges are my fav
  10. yes i meant the tubs or w/e you want to call them. And i dont find them too salty, i just don't add any salt when i use them.
  11. Those knorr stock cubes are the closest i have come to achieve a rich stock from retail products. They call for 3 1/2 cups of water, but i only add 2 cups.
  12. You seem to know a lot about Ramen. Maybe you can help me out with something. Have you ever tried those spicy chicken Yakisoba instant Ramen's? There is a aroma/flavor in them that really stands out over any other spicy chicken ramens. I can not make out this aroma/flavor. I believe its in the dehydrated vegetable packet. I thought it might have been napa cabbage but i have tried making my own even dehydrating my own napa cabbage but it didnt have that aroma/flavor. Its definitely not the normal ingredients like ginger, green onion, garlic.

    Smoked Beef

    I think i would treat it as bacon.

    Smoked Beef

    Going to need a little more info then just "smoked beef"
  15. Maybe it was bbq roast duck and he thought it was chicken. I remember a episode of bizarre foods where AZ was in Vietnam and there was a stand in the market that had a bunch of bbq ducks hanging that were really "red" in color.

    Easter ham marinade

    Long term memory loss? I mean that was back in 2011..... I am still trying to wrap my head around the ham marinade....Unless he meant a cure/brine for a uncooked uncured fresh ham.
  17. Too much rocket science in this thread. Either boil off the yuck before PC or roast before PC roasting will give a darker color, boiling will keep the color lighter and also remove the taste/feel you don't like.

    Easter ham marinade

    Why would you marinade a ham? Are hams not salty/flavored enough? I can do a glaze, but there is something wrong if you need to marinate your ham.

    Gator tenders

    The tail meat i bought was nothing like the garbage ive had at restaurants . People that say it taste like chicken, probably got chicken, the gator meat i had taste nothing like chicken. Like i said, its like frog legs but more tender and more juicy.

    Gator tenders

    I wouldn't even want chicken if i had access to that! These tenders were so juicy and flavorful.
  21. You are going to want to buy new seal rings on amazon for your Instant Pot. They cost like $10 for two new ring seals. Reason i mention this is because when you steam smoked meats in the instant pot, the seal ring never gets that smell not matter how many times you run it in the dishwasher.

    Gator tenders

    I bought this almost a year ago frozen, i had it in my deep freezer for almost a year. Did a fast ice water thaw and used my go to chicken wing breading. These were very similar to frog legs, but more tender and juicy.
  23. In my opinion, its #1 smoked. #2 rub consist of coriander, mustard seed, black pepper, and variations of onion, and garlic powder. I leave out paprika because i find it too bitter, especially with long cooks.
  24. I am even more confused then i started. Thought it was some serious medical condition like M.S., but its good to know you're just blind as a bat.
