If you cook for yourself, what do you usually make?
« on: August 05, 2017, 04:30:26 PM »
I live by myself in the woods so besides the invisible ether that makes up the internet I have little contact with homo sapiens.  Since I live in the woods, plants and animals can be easily hunted as found ingredients for my solitary culinary delights.

White people food like pasta, salads and sandwiches is convenient to take for lunch I find

I very rarely eat this sort of food at home though, I usually cook Chinese food

Pho on occasion because I want to try out the Pan Asian cultural mastery that's been trending lately.  I want to be good enough of a cook to say I can cook the most famous things from each Asian country. 

Recipe made easy:
I basically sous vide a pound of kebob sized beef pieces for about an hour at 150 F and the blood that secretes out during that cooking process I save to make beef stock.  Anywhere from half a cup to a cup of the blood/juice is great for stock for one serving.  You'll need to roast the green onions, ginger, white onions, tomato, kale, etc. and then when the heat is super high add the beef blood/juice watch it boil quickly and then reduce the heat to simmer.  The juice turns from dark red to dark brown.  Add another cup of water to keep it simmering so that all the juices will cook out of the ingredients in the vegetables and aromatics.  I also add a piece of kielbasa sausage to add more flavor to the broth mixture and you can add in star anise powder, fish sauce, salt, etc.  Add however much kebob meat, add the cooked rice noodles.  Pho.

Why are you making pho when there are obviously a ton of Chinese dishes you can make? Vietnamization is irreversible.  Just ask those chinky eyed Hanoians.

I wanted to try out the Pan Asian cultural mastery thing.  I wanted to cook Pho so people be like "Yes, you are Pan Asian."  In order to be Pan Asian you basically have to be able to cook the most famous thing of each country.

After this I will have to master Pad Thai.

on a regular basis, I like to make a pot of "bun bo Hue". In a pinch I can eat rice with fried chicken. My go to dish is curry since I have a jar of powder curry and chicken in the fridge. Easy and tasty.   Thai eggplants with anchovy sauce.

Lol da fuq. That ain't pho. Pho is extremely easy to make. Boil some beef bones overnight and that's gonna be the base of yo broth. Add a little of that msg and chicken powder. Add some star anise, fennel seeds into a pouch and sink that mothafucker into the broth and let the broth absorb all of da goodness. Then add some of dat stinky fish sauce and some rock sugar. Adjust the taste however you like by adding just enough salt to yo tasting and there ya go, you got yoself some authentic pho.
