Substitute Coconut Milk for Water In Boxed Brownies

I have a box of brownie mix lying around and I always wondered if you could substitute the water it calls for with coconut milk. Has anybody experienced this? I also plan on substituting the vegetable oil with coconut oil lightly heated.

Argh! Browning Meat....

Thanks. Yeah, that's what I do. I put it to the side but it seems by browning that it cooks all the way through. Is it supposed to cook all the way through or be pink?

Argh! Browning Meat....

Alright. I love making chili verde and sometimes it comes out excellent and sometimes it comes out just okay. I don't know what I've done different the times it's come out excellent versus the times that it hasn't but I do know that the times it's come out pretty bad is when I tried to brown the meat. For some reason I have no idea how to do it correctly. I chop up the pork in cubes, pat it dry, leave it get room temp and etc. I put the meat in batches in a pot on medium high and leave it for a couple of minutes. When I'm done I add my chilie verde (blended up roasted tomatillos, garlic, peppers, spices,etc) and let it simmer for three hours or so. The meat always comes out tough the times I "brown" it and I can't seem to brown it without cooking the meat through before letting it simmer. Lately I've been paranoid trying to brown the meat and then halfway through just ending up not browning it and pouring the sauce over it. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

How Long Will Thai Peppers Last in Fish Sauce

Hm. How do they taste? I'm afraid that I might have buy some Everclear and then drink what I don't use and get stupid drunk and end up naked somewhere that I'm not supposed to.

How Long Will Thai Peppers Last in Fish Sauce

I foolishly bought a bunch of Thai peppers from the Thai supermarket because I hardly go to that side of town and I love them to death. But there is no way that I'm going to use them all. I know freezing peppers will make them turn soft, that the fridge will only keep them so long, and that I can dry them and crush them into an awesome powder. Or that I can soak them in vinegar or alcohol to preserve them as well. I'm looking to do some or most of these but one thing that I love the most to do with peppers is when you chop them up and place them in fish sauce. That stuff is too good and it's great for dipping and in soups. I was wondering how long do you think it would keep. Since it's in something salt base will it preserve them longer like vinegar? Even if not for as long. Does anybody know? Thank you.

Any other ideas on what to do with fresh Thai peppers would be awesome as well.

Can You Reuse Leftover Chili Verde?

Thanks. I was just wondering since it was used to cook meat already. I'm sure the quality would falter a bit. I guess I could also use it for other things but I thought that maybe the more you reused the left over "sauce" the more flavor it would have as you keep adding to it.

Can You Reuse Leftover Chili Verde?

Sometimes when I make pork chili verde I have a lot of the sauce left afterwards. I was wondering if you could let it cool down and freeze it and safely reuse it later with brand new pork or whatever. If not add a little more of the verde to the mix. I've seen shows where there are things called 365 day soups where they leave pots of broth going forever and just constantly add new stuff to it and wonder if this is just as safe. Thanks.
