There’s something about the sweetness (carrots) with the spice that makes the feeling in my mouth enjoyable even for a time after I finish masticating whatever I put his sauce on. It’s just really enjoyable.
Yes. It's a bit different from a traditional hot sauce for this reason. I put some in carnitas and empanadas, and the sweetness makes every other flavor pop. Don't sleep on the pepper jelly. Made a PB&J with it yesterday. It really is one of the best jellies I've ever had, then the added bonus of the pepper kicks in and takes it over the top. AB inspired me to put it on a cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese. That was a beautiful combination.

I’ve never made good wings at home until tonight. Used the air fryer. Dredge was arrowroot starch(recipe called for potato starch but the store didn’t have and this was top alternative). Fried them for 20 minutes at 380. Flipped them then another 7-8 minutes at 400 flipping regularly. Then just a basic Buffalo sauce. Easily the best wings I’ve ever made myself.

yeah, the air fryer has been a godsend for chicken cooking purposes. our go-to easy meal a couple nights per week is chicken in the air fryer with a salad

would honestly eat that every night as an easy way to eat healthily but the lack of variety would get old

Same here with wings in the air fryer although I’ve just done them naked and they still turnout great.

To clarify it’s the wings that are naked, not me.

Speaking of onions. I had French onion soup tonight from a local carry out. Never had it before. I didn’t love it but I also don’t think it was authentic(no bread just croutons and Ilthe cheese was shredded . So I’d like to try to make or get it from people who know how to make it. This was a pre mixed base I think. Post your recipes here.

Got no recipes, but I'm overall a French Onion fan, though the quality varies wildly, in my experience. Can't imagine a soup that's meant to have the cheese melted onto the bowl is easily replicated for delivery. The onions need to be softened but not soggy. The cheese needs a good char. The toast should be dark and semi stale.
I took a two hour nap and cried during parks and Rec. it was awesome and terrifying.

Yeah it had no toast just some croutons and the cheese wasn’t legit gruyere or whatever is correct. Definitely a swing and a miss.

It’s one of those foods that’s like 4 ingredients but fucking any of them up (the beef stock, usually) tanks the end product. The one I loved growing up is from a place that doesn’t exist anymore.

I LOVE a good french onion soup. But to echo everyone else, it's really easy to mess up. And I definitely wouldn't try to get it as take away.

Here's a reasonable recipe: French Onion Soup

My wife makes great french onion soup. I’ll speak to her and follow up with her recipe.

Personally, I don’t know much, but I know you should use gruyére cheese.


ETA:
OK, here's her recipe, as best I can convey it:

Ingredients:
3 medium sweet onions (sliced up)
2 tablespoons butter
2 cans beef broth
2 tablespoons flour (plus or minus for desired thickness of soup broth)
1 to 1 1/3 cups red wine
Dashes of black pepper (more or less, to taste)
8 oz. package gruyére cheese, cut in slices (or grated, if you prefer)
1 long loaf French bread

In a medium soup pot, cook onions in butter. (About 30 minutes or until tender and brown - stir occasionally.)
Add beef broth and pepper to onions in pot.
Whisk flour into red wine, and add to soup pot.
Cover and simmer about 30 minutes.
Slice bread into thin slices (thickness to your preference)
Place slice of French bread at bottom of each of four oven-proof soup bowls.
Place slice of cheese on top of each piece of bread.
Ladle in hot soup over top of cheese and bread. Leave a bit of room to:
Top with another piece of bread, with a couple slices of cheese on top of it.
Put bowls in oven on broil. Watch closely. Remove from oven when cheese is melted and golden brown. Bread may toast slightly.
Serve remaining French bread with the soup.

Made a fresh batch this past sunday-- bit different ingredients (added pineapple to balance out the ghost pepppers.. not so many habaneros in this one), but sill plenty hot. Have plenty to ship out -- Jam too --

once these are gone, won't be making any new batches until after we move -- and i laid down some new plants. good chance i'll be making it in a commercial kitchen next time.

so place your orders!

I'm wondering if this recipe works as well with something other than beef broth? I don't eat beef. Do the Swamp chefs think veggie broth or chicken broth would work in this recipe?
Enjoy every sandwich.

I've tried and its definitely not the same. Its not like its a bad soup, but if you're expecting it to taste like real french onion it won't.

I have often wondered the same since the wife is vegetarian. My guess is you're looking for that rib sticking umami. My immediate thought is trying to make a deep mushroom broth? Never have tried though. Maybe a good winter project.

You don't need extra wine in FOS (more for the chef lolz,) but typically I had a bit of wine and some soy sauce to mushroom broth. Takes you a couple more stations toward flavor town.

Holy hell. My wife asked the daughter what she wanted for dinner for her first night back home tomorrow. Kid says "daddy's steaks."

Folks, I am pretty on the record that I suck at steaks. Which goes to show you that she hasn't been hitting up any steakhouses during quarantine I guess. So, any suggestions, fire my way. I usually just use salt and pepper and then try to get the heat right.

I'm not the best at steaks, either. My big problem is knowing the optimal time to take it off the grill. But, I'll share my limited knowledge. 1. Make sure the meat warms to room temperature before grilling. 2. I put a bit of spray cooking oil on the side that goes against the grill first. 3. Get the grill HOT, so you can sear the meat at the beginning. I then back the heat off a bit. Turn only once. Let it rest a few minutes after you take it off the grill, before cutting the meat.

Thickish steak fixes a lot of cooking problems. Super hot stove or grill. Girl just loves her dad so no worries about the steak.

Salt and pepper is all you need (heavy on the salt, easy on the pepper). If want to spice it up a bit find a season or rub recipe online that utilizes spices that you like (I made a cocoa powder/coffee rub once) or buy something special (I have a black pepper sea salt, applewood smoked sea salt and a ghost pepper sea salt that I’ve acquired at various different times that I’ve used off and on).

If the steaks are around 1.25” follow what SC said about the heat and getting the meat get to room temp...let them sit out for 30 minutes or so. Go for 4 minutes per side max. If the steaks are thicker cook a little longer each side by 1 or 2 minutes. Also make sure to rest them after pulling them off the grill...I cover or wrap mine in foil and let them sit for 5 minutes or so.

Personally, I load mine up blue cheese the last minute or two on the grill but that’s just me...

The rub I use is cocoa powder, paprika and ancho chili powder. Use a couple tbsp of cocoa powder and a couple tsp each of the ancho and paprika. I don’t really have a recipe other than tying the roast and brown at 500 for 15 minutes then going to a lower heat for the cooking...usually 325 for ~10 minutes per pound.

Kenji, Babish, Matty Matheson, recently Sam The Cooking Guy or anyone like Alton Brown just nails it.

For a steak, reverse sear:

Big fan of the cast iron dear and finish in a hot oven but lately I’ve been going to the stovetop sear and baste with aromatics. Love the results but haven’t done a big thick ribeye yet. This is all less than 1 inch cheap cuts.

Big fan of the cast iron dear and finish in a hot oven but lately I’ve been going to the stovetop sear and baste with aromatics. Love the results but haven’t done a big thick ribeye yet. This is all less than 1 inch cheap cuts.
My challenge has always been smoke. Even after letting the beef sit out and patting it dry with a paper towel I still get a shitload of smoke...any suggestions?

I've thrown some butter on after the sear but before the oven so I realize that's part of it but I've gotten smoke from just the meat and the skillet.
I would like expensive whiskey.
We only have beer & wine...
What am I, 12?

I ended up making them on the grill. Got good marks from the grill and the kid. I had a New York strip that I felt was one of the better ones I’ve made. The rest had top sirloin. One of them got a bit over cooked but overall they were in the medium-rare to medium sweet spot
