I was scared to try sushi for a long, long time. I finally did and fell in love. Now I want it all the time.

Here's my item :)

Ya know, a cheap and easy to find solution might be a veggie steamer basket or steamer rack.

u/HardwareLust · 3 pointsr/slackerrecipes

Just go to Target or whatever and get a steamer basket for $5. Or Amazon:

Wings are a little difficult to do well for a tailgate. The best way I've found is adapted from Alton Brown's method, straight grilling just results in tough, chewy wings. This gives similar results to deep frying without screwing around with turkey fryers which are a pain in the ass, somewhat dangerous if the lot is crowded, and still require about as much effort.

Steam the wings the night before. 10 minutes if thawed, 13 if frozen, pat dry with a paper towel and refrigerate overnight.

Line the grill surface with cheap cooling racks and grill on medium high (shoot for roughly the 425 listed, but it's not crucial). This makes them cook mainly via convective heating. Conduction with the much larger grill grates cooks them way to fast, causing charred skin and tough meat.

20 minutes on one side, flip, and about 10-15 on the other depending on the size of the wings.

His wing sauce is a decent basic recipe, although you can get crazy creating your own.

$6.71 for this steamer I need for baby fooooods!

A collapsible vegetable steamer or a steamer pot combo. Maybe your kitchen set already has this, but my boyfriend hadn't even seen one, ha.

try this:

just put frozen vegs in, eggs on top, ready to go

you can also add potatoes but you to chop those a bit first because otherwise they are not done at the same time

staple meal of mine because its easy to cook and clean (just single pot) and u dont have to watch it plus lots of veggies and protein

edit: does not work w/ frozen fish for some reason, the boiling water spills over (not sure why, has to be the fish obv)

get rid of the skin before you run it through the food mill and everthing will be fine. if you have a lot of tomatoes, set up a steamer while you work the mill. as an idea: a boiling pot with water and a steamer basket.

30 seconds: Put an inch of water water in the pot, start the fire, put that steamer rack on top of it, put your vegetables in, close the lid.

Wait 5-10 minutes, eat the vegetables.

30 seconds: Dump the water out, rinse the pot and rack once. Done.

It's just easy as using a microwave, only difference is you use a pot and steamer rack instead of a bowl.

You could use frozen but I like to buy fresh so that it steams faster. If you don't have a steamer you can get one REALLY really cheap at any home/kitchen store, they're like $5-7. Here's one on Amazon as an example:

If you absolutely can't get one, boiling is OK... just put the vegetables so that they're maybe half-submerged in water. Cover and cook on medium heat for a bit. Check every so often. Depending on how soft you want your veggies it could take 5-15 mins.

Another option is the microwaveable veggie bags, though personally I can't eat THAT much in one sitting.

If you like fish, I'd recommend this recipe:

I recently made it with my SO. It was pretty easy, and we loved it. Instead of bass, we went with cod. You don't need a bamboo steamer. I used a metal steamer that I already had for steaming veggies. You can find one on Amazon. I highly recommend it as a kitchen essential.

u/Revvy · 1 pointr/Cooking

You can pick up one of these at pretty much any grocery store or supermarket I've ever seen. You can steam anything with it. Just drop it into a pot of shallow boiling water and cover.

As I've already said elsewhere here, skip the wok, go to a restaurant supply store, and get a carbon steel skillet. They're very much like woks, in that they're thin, cheap, and made from carbon steel. The important difference is that it's shaped flat on the bottom to work on a normal range, rather than round like a big metal bowl. You don't need a wok spatula, use whatever utensil you like. I'm partial to silicone tipped tongs.

A rice cooker is nice but making rice on the stove isn't that difficult. Something to pick up if you can, but not a priority or something to worry about not having. Calling them "very multi-purpose" is down-right dishonest. Yeah you can cook a poofy pan cake in it, and you might once, and yes, you can steam a small amount of stuff in it, but really it's for rice.

It's good to have some extra glass or strainless steel bowls lying around for prep.

As an avid veggie-eater, here's a few pointers:

  1. Choose fresh veggies, not canned or frozen, if possible. Some veggies are okay frozen, like peas; others, like brussels sprouts and spinach, turn into a slimy mess.
  2. Proper cooking is key. Vegetables shouldn't disintegrate at the touch of your fork, they should still be intact while you're plating them up. I'd suggest, steaming, roasting, or stir-frying most veggies.

    a. Steaming is very simple, just get as steamer basket (something like this, they're available at basically any store with home goods). Cut up some vegetables, put them in the steamer, put the steamer in a pot with just enough water to not quite touch the bottom of the steamer, put the lid on and let them cook. Poke them with a fork after a few minutes, and if the fork goes in with some resistance, it's done. Don't overcook. In my opinion, the best veggies to steam are broccoli, green beans, carrots, asparagus, and spinach.

    b. Roasting takes a little more work, but is super delicious. You just need an oven-safe pan (a baking pan, a cookie sheet, something like that) and some oil (I usually use olive oil personally). Good roasting veggies include brussels sprouts, beets, carrots, asparagus, cauliflower, zucchini, and squash. Drizzle cut-up veggies with a bit of oil (don't go overboard or they'll get oily and soggy) and the seasoning of your choice (salt and pepper, seasoning salt, balsamic vinegar, or herbs like thyme, rosemary, and sage, just for starters), bake at 375F until they're done (same fork test as steaming).

    c. Stir-frying. Good for leafy greens like spinach, kale, Swiss chard, and cabbage, as well as pea pods, bell peppers, green beans, and most other green veggies. Put a bit of oil in a pan, set to medium or medium-high heat, toss in veggies, stir around until veggies are done, season to taste (tastes good with some sesame oil and soy sauce).

  3. Salads. Listen, people always go on about salads as if they're the healthiest possible thing, but they're only as healthy as you make them. If you can only stand salads drenched in creamy dressing, don't force yourself to eat it because it's "healthy". Also, if you're not used to salad greens, a lot of them might seem really bitter to you (stuff like arugula or kale) and turn you off. If you want to go for salads, I'd suggest some baby spinach and a nice mild lettuce like romaine, topped with whatever other veggies you like raw (radishes, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms...). Throw on some other fun stuff like dried cranberries, feta cheese, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, whatever strikes your fancy. Drizzle with vinaigrette and go to town.

  4. Raw veggies can make good snacks. I'm a big fan of carrots, sweet bell peppers (the red, orange, or yellow ones), snow peas or sugar snap peas, radishes, cucumber and cherry tomatoes. These veggies, especially when bought in season, are delicious and can be much sweeter than you might expect. I'm eating cherry tomatoes out of my garden right now, and they taste like candy they're so sweet. Lots of people also like raw broccoli, cauliflower, green bell peppers, and celery, although those aren't my favs. They might be yours though. If you want, try eating them with a yogurt dip or hummus.

    Hope that helps a bit!

This works outstanding for me. I can do 10 eggs at a time.
