Why is it you can straight up boil stew beef for ten hours and it still comes out pinkish on the inside

Nitrates in root veg (and other veg) can cause the beef to maintain a pink color inside. Onions are high in nitrates.

Celery too, that's why you see celery juice in "nitrate free" meats.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS


There was a high school fundraiser and I bought the smaller amount of strawberries I could and still ended up with 8 baskets.

Iíve used three baskets making cobbler and just eating them raw for snacks and in my corn flakes and poo poo. Each basket is about 2 cups worth all cut up.

What should I make?

I would never shop at Costco. The paper towels won't fit into my sports car!

Went to Smorgasburg yesterday, was happily impressed. The porchetta was great, all of the dumplings were great, everything was great. And then I found oysters. Let me tell you, eating super fresh oysters from a tent in a parking lot is incredibly weird and fantastically good.

Strawberry syrup, which you'll use to sweeten everything you eat. Freshly made syrups are divine.

Make sure to get plenty of the tops and cores in there. When I make any fruit syrup, I always add the pith or equivalent, it adds a ton of depth. Sort of like using tomato stems in marinara.

When you guys make whole chicken soup, do you cook the veggies with the bird, or add them later?
Mirepoix and chunks of veggies, or just chunks?

Both. Especially if I have some older, wilty looking stuff to use up. Rough chop and goes in the pot for flavor. Once it's mush I'll discard and add new veg and cook until just tender.

That's what I usually do. But I was poking around online, and some people like to cook down some mirepoix in the traditional soup manner.

Vegas folks, tragic news: Chada Thai and Wine is closing. Chada Street (IMO the best Thai place in town) closed earlier this year; Chada Thai was the older and, I thought, more secure of Bank's two properties. Unfortunately I was wrong.

If you haven't been to a Chada property, go before they close. Their food is amazing, their wine list is unusual and perfect for the cuisine (and currently marked down below even their excellent prices), and it's a drat shame they couldn't survive whatever weird economics are happening in Chinatown right now.

Was just there, and then I was at happy cow or whatever it is next door and wishing I was in chada (though the hotpot was good).

Why are they closing?

And why the gently caress aren't you and in a regular date at Golden Tiki?

No idea why exactly the second Chada is closing, but I'm guessing they just couldn't get enough revenue. It's a small space and their table layout wasn't terribly packed together (which I loved, but definitely means you need to raise more per table to cover the square footage). I'd speculate it has something to do with Bank wanting out of the restaurant business, but The Patio is still open. Bank's sister was the cook at Street, so these closures are definitely hitting his family hard.

I need to get up there at least one more time before they close. Chada Thai was the first place I had century egg (with chili/mint/lime sauce, it was phenomenal). Their green curry was the only one that eclipsed Lotus's, which has come down in quality since then. Dammit, why do bad things happen to good restaurants?

As to Tiki, yeah we should go some time. I don't get to Chinatown as often since Street closed - only once for omakase at Raku with a visiting friend, actually. But there's other good stuff in the area I should be visiting more often.
