Re: I need simple dinner recipes for family of 3, please!

Pork roast with cranberry This is one of our favorites. You can skip all the ingredients except the pork, cranberry sauce, salt and pepper. Use the one pot to make rice. Serve pork on rice. You want fast? Put rice to cook. Put chicken quarters in a glass baking dish. Bathe liberally in Louisiana Br...

We are big bbq enthusiasts and own a regular coal-fired Brinkmann. I was wondering if an electric would be easier to control. I have the same thing.

Re: {PEPPER STEAK SANDWICHES

Fat = juicy.

I was reading up on hamburger making and learned that 20% fat ground chuck makes the best burger meat.

My tests confirm that the 20% fat meat does make a juicier burger.

Unique and fast grilled chicken

It is called "satay", AKA the ultimate street food from Asia. I just ran a test batch of the following recipes and they turned out very well! Not authentic, but with more flavor and flavors than the "real street version". Grilled Chicken: http://thaifood.about.com/od/thairecipes/r/thaichickensate.ht...

Get two.

I also use it in the home kitchen. One probe tells you what your oven is REALLY set at (mine was 35 degrees off) and the other probe can go in the roast/chicken/lasagna/cake to tell you when it is done without opening the oven door.

That is similar to my dry rub. I don't use the mustard nor the sugar, but add garlic, ginger and cloves (the last two in very small amounts). My last shoulder got very favorable comments when I added a hint of marjoram and sage.

Re: Cuisinart Pots and Pans

Except for spatulas, wooden utensils are easy on the pans. They also do not make that annoying scraping sound when you do a lot of stirring. After a few years they crack, but you just discard them and get some new.
