Re: London Broil in the crockpot

It sounds as if you did really well to me! :clap2: :clap2: Here are a few tips for next time: Yes, you can use less liquid and maybe, for depth of flavor, change up the liquid by using beef broth or chicken broth instead of water. Also, you can thicken the sauce by using flour but be sure to cook t...

Re: London Broil in the crockpot

Didn't the onion soup and water make a sauce/gravy? Or, are you saying you didn't want a sauce? I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand. :) It was a thinner broth. Probably should use a bit less water next time. I probably could have added some flour and thickened the broth into a gravy. But I was too...

Brisket question

I'm making BBQ brisket in the slow cooker. But I was wondering a couple of things -

1) Do you really need to trim the fat? I always thought you placed the meat fat side up in this situation.

2) What does it mean to "pass the sauce with the meat"? Is that just pouring it over the meat?

Stale ciabatta loaf

So I got this loaf of ciabatta that is stale, but not moldy. It seems pretty good on the inside, it's just the crust that's hardened.

I'd like to still make sandwiches out of it without breaking my teeth. Is there some sort of relaible method for softening artisan bread crust?

I scrambled six eggs the normal way (with milk/salt/pepper only), folded omelette-style then made some Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits (8-pack). Melted some cheese on top when the eggs were done cooking - I like a mix of shredded jack and cheddar. Then I cut the biscuits in half, slapped on a little m...

You never know what may happen before it is served.

The cat doesn't know better.
What's a little "spice" in your cake, Carl? ;)

You might even be able to make coffee out of it.

You list the ingredients, but no preparation. Shouldn't your recipe include instructions on how the stick should be used to prepare the sh*t? Are we talking shish-kabob or corn dog style?
