My Family Doesn't Eat My Cooking

Especially if you get them involved in helping you in the kitchen when they are young. There are a lot of things little hands can do and they may be more interested in eating stuff they helped prepare.

Uses for anchovy oil?

Anchovies dissolve with cooking. Mash them into oil until they melt.

ISO, Fried Beef Cube Recipes

Love these things:

Chislic (Steak bites)

Ingredients

* 3 pounds beef sirloin, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
* 1/4 cup brown sugar
* 2 teaspoons garlic powder
* 1 teaspoon onion powder
* 2 tablespoons chili powder
* 1 tablespoon ground ancho chile powder
* 2 teaspoons ground chipotle chile pepper
* 2 tablespoons salt-free seasoning blend
* 1 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke flavoring
* 3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
* black pepper to taste
* 2 cups vegetable oil for frying

Directions

1. Place the beef cubes into a large mixing bowl. Season with brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, ancho powder, chipotle powder, salt-free seasoning, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper. Marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.

2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering.

3. Cook the beef in batches in the hot oil until browned on all sides and cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 3 minutes for medium. Drain the beef cubes briefly on a paper towel-lined plate before serving. Allow the oil to become hot again before cooking the next batch of beef.

Serve with a creamy horseradish dip.

Is not tipping illegal?

In Idaho, servers make 2.25 per hour. And I sure don't know anyone who is making even close to 300.00 a day/night in tips (in re the PF Changs comment above).

went to supermarket... what was I thinking!?!

Pacific Northwest here. Husband went to the grocery a couple of hours before the Super Bowl. It was a mad house. Girlfriend went during the SP and declared two super markets "ghost towns".
Gas here is 1.53 this morning.

What's your regional fry sauce and what do you like?

Depends on what I'm having the fries with.
I always have Bloomin' Onion Dip in the fridge (mayo, ketchup, horseradish, paprika)
Tartar sauce and/or malt vinegar if I'm having fish and chips.
Mushroom soup (hot, undiluted) if I'm having cheeseburgers, because I like cheeseburgers dipped in the soup.
Brown gravy if we're having french dips or patty melts.
Dang, now I want french fries!

Does anyone eat tartar sauce with anything other than fish?

Fish, onion rings, french fries, hush puppies, chicken strips. There may be more ...
I love homemade tartar sauce!

How do you put together a menu plan, if you do?

We are a meat and potatoes family. The last two weeks or so my goal has been to have one half of our plate fresh vegetables, one-quarter meat and one quarter starch. I would get bored with just one vegetable on the plate, so I mix them up. For an example tonight is fresh green beans yellow squash red peppers broccoli and red onion all cut into roughly the same size chunks and stir fried very quickly with a little bit of teriyaki sauce and about half a pound of thin sliced beef tossed in. Serving over steamed rice.

How do you put together a menu plan, if you do?

What "fast food" are you picking up that doesn't contain beef, chicken, pork, fish or seafood?

I keep a well stocked freezer and pantry. I pull out three proteins a week and make a menu around those and what we have in the pantry. Make a list of what we need to round out the menu (usually vegetables and dairy) and husband goes to the store.

Too much Zucchini - help

This!
Husband likes when I hollow them out, mix the innards with some spaghetti sauce, stuff them and bake. Sprinkle mozzarella and some parmesan on top a few minutes before taking out of the oven.
I've been roasting a lot lately too.
Dip in a tempura batter and deep fry.
Or just batter and fry. Serve with ranch dressing.
Dang, I just had to add zucchini to my grocery list!

When do you plan dinner?

I pull three or four proteins out of the freezer and plan a loose menu for the week based on those, and what's in the pantry. Make a list for the grocery store for husband.

Getting uncooked prime rib shipped?

I want to have a nice prime rib shipped to my mother. She won't spend the money on one herself. All I can find are precooked. Is there a reputable company that will ship an uncooked prime rib?

What to do with leftover prime rib?

I did the same this year (thanks to Chow!). I pulled it out at 120 though. Rested for an hour while my bakers cooked and put it back in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes. Best prime rib ever! Husband is still raving about it.

Difference between meatloaf and Salisbury Steak?

I use pretty much the same recipe for SS and meatloaf. SS is formed into patties with a rich brown gravy. No sauce or condiments on my meatloaf, thank you.

Difference between meatloaf and Salisbury Steak?

We call that cube steak. I made Swiss Steak with it last night. Also use it for Chicken Fried Steak.

Linguine & Clams

Looks awesome! We don't find good clams up in our neck of the woods often.

canned potatoes - anyone cook with them?

Never heard of them until camping with a girlfriend. She fried some up for breakfast. They were okay. Not something I would go out of my way to look for.

Prime Rib and baked potatoes question

I'm slow roasting prime rib for the first time tomorrow. 200 degrees for 4 or 5 hours (this recipe: http://www.chow.com/recipes/30234-slo...
)Are my potatoes going to bake at 200 degrees? Do I put them in the same time as the prime rib?

Love Quaker Oatmeal. Cook per directions, add a pat of butter, and I'm good.

Does anyone actually put stuffing inside the turkey anymore?

Bird is always stuffed with traditional bread stuffing. Oyster dressing on the side.

Let's ban the word GUYS!!!

Seems to me some are just actively seeking a reason to be offended. I wouldn't even notice "you guys".
