Is there a recipe share forum on here?
So many good dishes need to be memorialized
No, no recipe sub-forum at the moment. I'd like to see one created though. We really have some spectacular meals being presented here, and a forum for recipes would be really useful.
I second this! Would love to try recipes by other forum members as well as share some Turkish ones.
Do you guys follow recipes when you cook? I just kinda look through my fridge and see what pops into my brain that momment ....
Depends on what I am making. Some recipes are just in my brain, taught by my mom or by watching her cook when I was a kid. But some stuff, like gyozas, fresh pasta, Asian food I cook--I do follow recipes and edit them to my liking.
Roast beef with sauce "Holandes" with kampotski long
We can do that, I don’t mind sharing my recipe, maybe others too
in the mean time, extra crispy roasted pork loin for today.
(Imagine the sound it made when you cut through the crackling)
Any herbs or spices used. I am going to make this tonight. Thanks for posting
I either do that or wonder around the market til i see something that grabs my attention.
I think a recipe forum would be great. I though a “knives in action” thread would be great and could include recipes as well.
Wow, man hungry!
ginger, green onions the white parts, and garlic.
ground pork goes into the wok. until cooked.
dump in can of corn..i added frozen roasted corn leftovers i had.
added white pepper, salt and some soy sauce. then the rest of the green parts of the green onion.
It depends. I have probably 150+ recipes in my head that I can make at the drop of a hat. Then there are things I haven't made in ten years or so, and I go on the web and refresh my memory. Then there are things I've never ever done before, so I go and do a bit of research on the web. (I'm about to descend down the sourdough rabbit hole…)
But, really, a lot of the time, I go to a market and just browse. And often see things that I don't know (and can't read the label of, because it's in Chinese or some other Asian script). Then I buy the thingamajig anyway, just to find out what it is, and research it and figure out what to do with it. (I've had big surprises that way, both positive and negative. Bitter melon was a really positive one; I bought it on impulse just to find out what can be done with it, and I really liked it.)
And, quite often, a recipe just sort of takes shape in my head as I see various foods that look nice at a market, and then think "this would go well with that. So I buy a few things and round out the "recipe" as I go. Usually, that approach works quite well. Lots more hits than misses that way, at any rate…
just a gluten for punishment i suppose. you did a great meal up there!!
what WOK is that? one of those elusive China ones.?
Its a ChanChiKee wok, I got it from China maybe 3 years back? Pretty good stuff
I actually like recipes. I think it's nice for inspiration and trying something different than my usual staples.
Tonight I made stuffed aubergines only because I stumbled on a recipe while surfing the BBC.
Being kinda stuck in the "meat+veg"-school of thought it's nice to get out of my comfort zone a little..
..And it tasted great!

So easy a 5 year old can do it
Given your posts, I suppose it shouldnt surprise me that your children would be great cooks... But wow! Great work little Xenif!
Xenif... nice work on the recipe post!
Loved the featured knife idea...
Now what do we need to do to get an admin to set up a separate forum link?
Let's all mail-bomb @Angie
+1 for a recipe sub-forum.
Ran low on ingredients yesterday so created something... new. Mulato peppers, onion, tomatoes, almond butter, rosemary, coriander and sous vide lamb neck. Wasn't half bad!
I've used this one in the past:
That makes a nice soup. But I like the addition of chorizo in @Nedfeister's one. Would like to check out that recipe, too!
Got it ... thanks.
The venison roasts are on the left, the beef roasts to the right. Both are quite tasty.
Thermometer is set to max hold, reading shown is after 2.75 hours in the cheap-O Walmart charcoal fueled water smoker.
I did these roasts sous vide for 36 hours at 137° F, then chilled for about 16 hours, then smoked over lump charcoal with apple wood trimmings from pruning my own trees. The deer being smoked/sous vide cooked had just prior to being harvested eaten some windfall apples off of the very same trees providing the smoking wood- Great circle of life, y'all.
