Re: Cooking a Good Everything Else

Btc, what do you do with all of these desserts you make? Do you eat all of it or do you take a serving then throw the rest away? Are you baking for 10 people? Just curious.

Great looking tart, btc! Cool that you can get that result with evoo. How does it taste compared to a butter tart?

Not ragging on btc at all, his stuff looks top shelf, but personally if baked desserts ceased to exist entirely my life would be unaltered. With the exception of baked cheesecake.

Re: Cooking a Good Everything Else

Thanks guys!

one, we have a big family and everything gets eaten or shared.

brian, imo oil pastry has a deeper flavor. Not better or worse, just different and tasty in its own way.

Chris,

Super additive comment, thanks for contributing?
FYI - that's basically how we all feel about Australia's existence.

Re: Cooking a Good Everything Else

I wish Oz would export kangaroo in significant quantities- it’s a great meat. That’s probably on the rest of the world for not realizing that, though.

It would be weird to have another tennis tournament as the 4th major, but it’s the least exciting one as it is, so wouldn’t be a big loss.

Thinking of visiting Texas in a few weeks. Would I be aiming Austin-ish or San Antonio-ish? I should look at a map.

I am in Austin.

San Antonio has better Tex Mex and Mex Mex but Austin has better BBQ. They're only 1 hour 15 min apart by car though.

Dallas and Houston has better ethnic food.

High end dining is really dependent on what you're in to.

Confirmed. What a bunch of (uncured) baloney. Really grinds my gears.

Amoeba has it down exactly. Well actually am somewhat ignorant on Dallas. Residents of Houston hate Dallas and to a lesser extent vice versa. Didn’t picture Dallas being as ethnically diverse. I really think Houston has the best ethnic food scenes in the country.

btc,

Nice tart! Is that a standard pie dough with evoo replacing butter, or did you change the recipe at all?

Re: Cooking a Good Everything Else

I freaking hate this "uncured" fad. My mom always buys things at a crazy markup and tells us she got "uncured" stuff, implying it's healthier when it is, as far as I can tell, it is chemically identical to using sodium nitrate that isn't extracted from celery powder. Frankly, this should be considered fraud, in my opinion, unless I'm actually seriously missing something that goes on with this process.

El D,

You were killing me with the ribs and sweet potatoes. Followed your suggestions in the sous and slow roast, it was great! Thanks, partner.

kevin,

Nice! But why do you keep a fork under the ribs?

Babybacks there I assume?

Re: Cooking a Good Everything Else

krunic, this pastry has a bit more moisture than a standard pie dough, but aside from the ratio's ingredients are the same.

2 cups flour
.5 cup oil
.5 cup cold water
pinch of salt
squeeze of honey

Re: Cooking a Good Everything Else

El D,

Sliding the fork under was just the most efficient way to carry both my plate/drink without the fork sliding off, I guess? Correct, they were baby backs. Thanks again, will definitely be doing both the potato and ribs again (especially the ribs).

Re: Cooking a Good Everything Else

Kevin,

If you’re gonna do the 36hr sous vide, grab some st Louis style ribs. They are meatier, fattier, tougher, and cheaper! For most preps I prefer babybacks, but for long sous vide the St. Louis style are amazing.

Lol I’m not going to defend Houston. Houston vs. Dallas is like a 2 vs. 2.5 or vice versa. I guess it’s easier to fly out of Dallas to get away. Houston however is much closer to New Orleans and the more ethnically diverse population of Houston makes the food better.

El D,

Noted, ty. I just knew I had some in the deep freezer and pulled them out. If the St. Louis style turn out better I'm gonna be floored. Will post when I get to them.
