    Giant sous vided pork chop, spuds, and green beans
  4. I'm new to this, but I dry, salt/pepper, bag, cook, sear.

    Sea bass with green beans and shallots
  6. I would call it Shwarma. I grew up and am from southern California, though I don't live there any more.

    Dinner 2022

    Steamed broccoli, roasted potatoes, and grilled Steelhead Trout.
  11. I actually tried the chapulinas at Guelaguetza back in the aughts. I liked the other food much better! Great restaurant!
  12. I'm thinking about this one: https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/latin-american-cookbook
  13. Old spices are probably to blame. Also using powdered spices instead of crushing/grinding whole spices will make it bland.
  14. Now I don't feel so bad about the tree still being up...

    It looks yummy!
  16. I posted about this in Cookbooks, but maybe this is a better place for it. I have "Indian Instant Pot Cookbook", and it calls for a quarter cup of liquid for the recipes. I thought you needed at least a cup of liquid to reach pressure. Will I ruin my IP if I try to follow these recipes? The cookbook assures me that the other ingredients (yogurt, tomatoes) will provide the liquid, but I don't know if I trust that. Anyone have experience with this cookbook, or with low-liquid IP recipes?
  17. I just got "Indian Instant Pot Cookbook" and am wondering about the amount of liquid in the recipes (like a quarter cup only). Will I ruin my IP if I do this? I thought you needed at least a cup of liquid. Thoughts? Indian Instant Pot® Cookbook: Traditional Indian Dishes Made Easy and Fast (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)

    Dinner 2022

    IP carnitas
  19. I haven't inaugurated it yet, but do plan to use it.
  20. EG enabled my upgrade to an IP where I had been using a regular stovetop pressure cooker. Also a set of glass "tupperware" that I can't recall the name of. And indirectly, it contributed to my husband buying an ANOVA SV setup for me for Xmas. Countless ingredient purveyors And cookbooks
  21. I use freeze dried chopped shallots from Penzey's in sauces and stews; I find it works well.
  22. I got a sous vide for Xmas and have no idea how to use it. I ordered a Sous Vide Cookbook, but it's not here yet. I have a practical question: How do you use a wireless meat thermometer with a roast in a sous vide? Can it just go in the bag, inserted in the meat?
  23. Tests aren't always that reliable. I'm allergic, as in anaphylaxis, to shellfish. A skin allergy test didn't pick up on that and instead said I was allergic to green beans, which I eat without a problem.
  24. I just love Beaujolais Nouveau!

    US Thanksgiving 2021

    My husband, trying to be helpful with deviled egg prep, while I was out of the kitchen--cut all the boiled eggs in half---not lengthwise! I discovered him as he was cutting the last one, so I have 24 very awkward deviled eggs.
