What can I do with fatty corned beef trim?

Wow gregarious that sounds wonderful. I'm guessing you could do this with trimmings from other things? Pork butt...prime rib...a roast?

I want Buttermilk Pie that is buttermilk-y!

I think this last time it was Bugarian style or something like that.

Maybe I will pick up some real buttermilk at the Amish colony

ChefJ, I think you're right about too much sugar. I will try your recipe!

Thanks for your reply, blue room. But gelatinous textures are a no go for me. :(

I want Buttermilk Pie that is buttermilk-y!

Tried several recipes - this week it was the one from Homesick Texan.

So far, none has the TANG (and maybe the creaminess) of buttermilk that I'm looking for. It just tastes basically like chess pie. Good but not what I'm looking for.

Can anyone help?

Kitchen towels - am I just being OCD about this?

I've been thinking of switching to all white so I can bleach them. Plus I like how they look "chef-like."

Okay I'm gonna read it. But I think I know what it says. Like someone else mentioned. E-coli and stuff.

Quick and Easy Baking Ideas

I made these last weekend and they were ah-maze-ing. I used coconut oil for the oil.

I cannot make them again. I literally ate half the pan in one night. So so good and so easy .

Go Nostalgic or Go New?

After many years of wanting to go there, we found Pascals Manale disappointing. Service was great but the food has slipped, evidently.

Kitchen towels - am I just being OCD about this?

Lately I've started to be skeeved out about not washing my kitchen towels by themselves. After all, I sometimes put food directly on them and I often touch them to clean dishes.

Problem is most weeks I only use 2 or 3 towels so it's not a full load.

Does this bother anyone else or it is just me being weird?

How often do you wipe down the shelves in your fridge?

I wipe the shelves about once a week week - right before shopping trip when it's kind of empty.

The door shelves don't get it as often. Did them recently - one at a time until all done.

I tend to just do a bit at a time.

What I'm not good about is the big major cleaning of taking everything out. When I do, I get a folding table and put everything on there while I clean. (I don't have much counter space.)

dutch ovens vs. slow cookers

I agree. I think my slow-cooker gets too hot and boils the flavor out of things. I never use it.

Reheating Holiday Roast Prime Rib/Standing Prime Rib Roast....On the Stove, and or, In the Oven

This sounds great, ac.

I'm thinking maybe have the meat slices at or close to room temp.

USDA SELECT Prime Rib $80 worth for party tomorrow...will it be awful?

Well guys for future reference...my guests loved the prime rib. The cooking method was PERFECT...very happy with that.

But there was a difference in tenderness in the select prime rib roast from what I've had before. I will be more careful next time...I think it's worth it to get Choice grade.

Four, that's good to hear! I've been reading your threads and thought if you could make good roast beef with CHUCK you must surely have the right method.

Was glad to see you mention no blood gushing on the plate - we like it fairly rare - but not that rare.

You're great and you have a really cute dog.

USDA SELECT Prime Rib $80 worth for party tomorrow...will it be awful?

Didn't realize until I got it home that the whole prime rib I bought was SELECT instead of choice...no wonder only $5.99 a pound!

Got it salted down on a rack in fridge. Any other suggestions for me? Fourunder?

Well isn't 98% of what's posted here a first world problem? I don't think too many people who don't get enough to eat are worried over sous vide and what went wrong with my lamb shanks and all the other minutae we post about here.
