How can you know if an online recipe is really a good one? Almost all the recipes I see on sites like allrecipes have a rating higher than 4.5/5 but I know I've definitely tried some of these and they haven't turned out great (not that I'm the world's best cook). Whenever I look up a recipe, almost every one I find has a great rating but how should I choose the one I follow?
I've been looking all over the internet for a recipe and haven't found one that seems really nice. I'm looking to make a moist (is that the right word? Like a very fluffy, juicy?) Dark chocolate cake with passion fruit for my boyfriend. Maybe some of you know one or can refer a website which may have what I'm looking for?
Thank you in advance! :)
Massaman Curry is my favorite food. I'd love to be able to make a super awesome version of it as a sort of specialty. I'm thinking the best way to go is to get a high quality massaman curry paste rather than trying to make my own (as a novice curry paste maker), but what's the best way to proceed from the curry paste? I'd say I'm an above-average-competence cook, so I don't want to cut any corners after using pre-made curry paste. It's more a matter of finding the right instructions of what other ingredients.
Google has of course returned tons and tons of recipes that are mostly similar but all slightly different. I don't really know how to tell which recipes are to be trusted or not. Any experts want to give their recommendations?
I've followed this procedure https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=RqAaJiZQ1uY twice now. Once for enchilada sauce and once for chili and both times it was still pretty bitter. Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I would appreciate any solid input. Thanks!
I'm a single dude living by myself, looking to expand my recipe repertoire. I've never been particularly interested in cooking and have a fair amount of limitations which has made it difficult to find new recipes that seem to work for me. That said, I certainly wouldn't mind learning some new cooking techniques as needed. I'll list out my rules here, please leave a suggestion if you have something you think would fit the bill!
Right now my rotation consists of turkey tacos, parmesan breaded pork w/ pasta (red sauce) and green beans (frozen), basil pork pasta (red sauce), chicken fried rice, and carne asada w/ rice and green beans (frozen). The chicken fried rice is my most recent addition and definitely the most complex to make.
Let me know if you like this please!
My husband talks about a rice dish his mom used to make, he thought she got it from a Malaysian or Indonesian friend. From his description, it sounds like a simple chicken stir fry/curry type recipe served over rice, with leeks or scallions, lots of peppers and maybe some veggies. But it wasn't red - he doesn't think it actually had curry or tomato sauce. Ideas? Thanks!
I don't have fancy pictures or a gif or anything to get you to try this. All I have is my word that this is the tastiest cut of pork you'll ever have, and it's super cheap.
Cook time: 10-12 hours.
Set oven to 210F. Place the pork butt on a roasting rack over a pan, fatty side up, in the oven. Cross-hatch the top of the pork butt with a knife. Rub with cumin and cinnamon. Pour 1/2 cup of maple syrup over the butt. Grab your own butt and jiggle because you're a sexy beast. Baste pork butt occasionally (about every hour is enough).
At 5 hour mark: In a small sauce pan, melt butter. Add bourbon and 1/2 cup maple syup. Let simmer for about 15 minutes. Pour reduction over the pork butt. Continue to baste every every hour or so.
Don't bother letting it rest: it doesn't make much difference. Just eat the fucking thing.
I know Google has hundreds of recipes but I would prefer to find one that I know someone uses often and I know that is going to be good. Thanks!
My wife and I are looking to eat a little less meat in our diet because of how expensive it is and that we're trying to lose weight for when we finally have the ceremony.
It's so expensive here, even the cheap fish (which I would like more recipes for those, but only if you wanna share them) is expensive and hard for me to cook since I tend to cook more meaty meals.
There are a ton of recipes online, but the ones I've tried has made the tofu tough and flavorless for us.
Anyone have good wonderful recipes for tofu and other cheap meat alternatives? Thank you so much!
Edit: Forgot the Flair. I'm so sorry.
