  1. Ha, I was wrong, I do have both Walmart brand Shake n bake and Walmart brand Panko. Going to take pics now.
  2. The breadcrumb used in "shake n bake" is not even close to "Panko" If i had a box on hand i would pour them both on a paper plate to prove you wrong.
  3. They use a special breadcrumb that browns and crisps up better then standard breadcrumbs, and most certainly "flour" Store brand is cheaper, and used the same breadcrumb, tastes identical and is a lot cheaper and includes the "shake bag" I can confirm Walmart brand, and a local brand to me called Giant.
  4. As ive mentioned, i go very light on the Lawry's, but I always found "find your own bag and shake n bake" to be a bit bland for my taste. A light sprinkle on both sides of a pork chop really brings it to the next level. You could make your own Lawry's without salt if you think theres enough salt in the original mix. Its basicly sugar, celery seed, onion powder, and garlic powder. Might be some white pepper in their too.
  5. I don't add extra breadcrumbs because it changes the final texture from "baking" but i do pre season my pork chops with Lawry's seasoning salt and let them sweat for 30 min prior to tossing in the bag with the "bake" mix. I go very lightly with Lawry's as its pretty salty, but man does it kick them up a notch.
  6. As for weird cravings its cheap ramen packet with as much spicy chile powders i can tolerate. I usually add a nip of Habanero powder, a 1/2 tsp of Jalapeno powder, and a 1/4 tsp of Cayenne powder. The trifecta usually has me sweating half way through the bowl.
  7. Don't buy shake n bake. The no longer provide the bag to "shake" the chicken or pork chops in. And they upp'ed the price to almost $5 a box. I buy store brand that includes a bag and its like $1.69 a box.
  8. Why would it matter if cook time is not an issue? Not enough water add more, too much, take the lid off and let it evaporate. This seems like pretty trivial $hit.

    Ive eaten stink bugs on a dare. They actually taste like cilantro. Those hoppers look way too big though.
  10. Char Siu for tonights dinner.
  11. Reminds me of this Greek Diner had the best Chicken Orzo soup with a hint of lemon.
  12. Just picked up a pork loin a few days ago, trimmed the deckle for Char Siu.
  13. Why exactly do you need to use wrap or paper? Why not just put directly on a flat plate?
  14. I make char Siu out of this cut. Its basicly the deckle on a pork loin just cut off before sliced into chops.

    Wasabi crumble?

    Odd? Negative. My breakfast sandwich is sometimes fried chicken breast with bacon and drizzled with maple syrup on a homemade belgium waffle.

    Wasabi crumble?

    I usually make my own, but those sound tasty with the garlic.

    Wasabi crumble?

    Either way, scratch the breadcrumbs, and try deep fried shallots.

    Wasabi crumble?

    I never heard of horseradish crumble, and after doing a google search, I can confidently say, I am glad i never heard of it, and wished i had not wasted my time searching. Please do not ruin good raw salmon/tuna with a breadcrumb topping. If you want a crunchy element might i suggest using deep fried shallots.
  19. Great substitute for butter. Try or don't.
  20. Nutritional Yeast flakes (eG-friendly Amazon.com link).

    Dinner 2023

    I would take a crusty french baguette, slice it open, smash that crab cake in, and top with that amazing slaw, and make a Po Boy.
  22. 0.05% was the magic number. Noticeably more tender, but still had chew. vacuumed for 90 minutes total, and overnight for 12 hours, then 6 hours in the APO.

    Dinner 2023

    Ann put the bug in my ear two weeks ago, couldn't get it out, and no LJS's around anymore to satisfy the craving. Had to take matters into my own hands.
  24. Testing a pound of London Broil for beef jerky. 3/8 thickness sliced with the grain. 0.05% ( by my sketchy calculations ) vacuumed ( no tumble ) 29.5 Hg held for 30 minutes. Then into fridge overnight. Plan to dehydrate in my APO 135F dry bulb no steam for 6 hours ( will adjust accordingly ) Going for 30%- 40% moisture loss.
  25. To make things even more confusing, I just noticed my Bromelain has a concentration of 2400 GDU, and after searching the study i based my tests on, used a concentration of 1200 GDU. So i believe my original test would have been 0.2% instead of what i thought was 0.1%. I still think even 0.1% is too high, so now i need to dilute 4x instead of 2x. *sigh*
