The "Andrew Special," named after my brother who died saving a village of Tibetans from Wolf-Bear terrorist extremists, invented this delicacy in the throes of battle. You read that right. He invented that shit while doing a round-house kick. Anyway, it's a fucking awesome sandwich between two slices of awesome. Here's what you'll need:

  • 2 slices of high-quality toastin' bread, none of that sissy shit that falls apart when you try to butter it, 'cause you're going to slather it on with a machete tempered with dragon blood

  • 2 slices of your favorite deli cheese. I use Amuhrican because it pwns all the other cheeses in their socialist faces.

  • 1 man-sized portion of rendered animal fat. Though you can use butter if you prefer.

  • 1 hand grenade (optional) to toss at marauding pirates should they happen to catch whiff of this tasty delight on one of their murdering rampages. Since you better be able to take them down with your bare hands should you attempt to make this, I've marked the grenade as optional. We're pinching pennies here.

    Here's where the magic happens--some have called it the dandruff of the gods, but you will call it sir. Sir Adobo.

    Buy yourself a motherfucking bottle of Goya Adobo before we proceed.

    Now, slather that fat/butter on the outside of the bread and load on the following seasonings (don't be a pussy about it):

  • McCormick Peppercorn Medley Grinder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Dried Parsley Flakes
  • Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning

  • Sesame Seeds
  • and Motherfucking Goya Adobo on that shit.

    You got two buttered bread slices loaded with grated demon spunk and two slices of cheese between them. What are you going to cook it in? Well, when you're fighting off a hoard of ravenous Wolf-Bears, you don't have time to mind the stove, do you, Susy Pansy-Pants? So you have two options: A mothershitting flamethrower, or a George Foreman Grill.

    Preferably, you should have a six-pack while consuming. This is not a grilled cheese, it's a gourmet sandwich. You're fucking welcome.

Check out Maggi Sauce. It is similar to soy sauce but is made with wheat instead of soy.

There is also nothing wrong with MSG.

It's a type of seasoning salt, more or less.

Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning, 8 Ounce Shakers

u/GrabSomePineMeat · 17 pointsr/fitmeals

Alright, first you COVER that son of a bitch in Butt Rub. Then you also cover that pork MF'er in yellow mustard (don't go too heavy here if you aren't a big vinegar person). Then you go outside, you start up your charcoal Weber Kettle. That'll give you 20 minutes or so to have a whiskey. Then once the coals are dark gray, you push them all to one side of the grill. You place the pork loin on the other side of the grill and get the temp inside the grill to about 250 or so and cover the grill. You slow cook it a couple hours or so until the internal temp is about 140. You take it off the grill and wrap in tin foil. By this time you've had several whiskeys. Let the meat sit for roughly 20-30 minutes. Open, slice, consume.

u/wolvesvane · 15 pointsr/budgetfood

Seconded, also adding Tony Chachere's, which i put on basically everything. also some spice humor.

u/Zombie_Lover · 14 pointsr/Cooking

And sometimes an acidic element. Sometimes something is just too rich, but still lacking something even if well salted. A tiny squeeze of lemon or lime can often brighten it and release a much more complex flavor profile. I keep a jar of Tajin around just for this situation. It really comes in handy.

u/ebmorga · 14 pointsr/AskCulinary

I'm really not trying to split hairs here, but what is considered a large quantity of MSG? Are we talking about literally eating a huge jar of straight MSG or are we looking at the effects of a strict fast food/boxed food diet that so many of people have (where most of what you consume comes prepackaged or in a box and MSG is in every ingredient list)? I'm genuinely curious here because I've always associated my headaches and stomach upset that I get when eating out or boxed food with the MSG and I've got a friend who is terrified of feeding MSG to her kids because of neurotoxins.
I know about umami and the history of glutamates, but how different is this from the jars of MSG or the additives in boxed food?

u/coiffureclips · 14 pointsr/AskCulinary

i dont think it would be a problem seeing as stocks/broths are usually cooked at a low temperature for a longer amount of time. i recommend adding dried shiitake and perhaps finding some ajinomoto in order to give it the classic saltiness/savoriness most people look for in a broth. hope this helps even if only a little bit!

Jicama is a root veggie that is similar in texture and taste to a cross between a pear, apple, and potato.

The skin peels off effortlessly and it's easy to cut and fun to eat!

It's only 38 calories and 9carbs per 100g. I like to eat it with sliced cucumber and a sprinkling of tajin seasoning which is lime juice, salt, and chili pepper-not spicy but very flavorful.

u/drfuzzphd · 10 pointsr/cincinnati

Don't do canned. Buy the spice packs and make it at home. 1.5 lbs ground beef, 1 can tomato paste, spice mix, & water. That's it man, super easy, and comes out perfect.

u/litewo · 10 pointsr/amazon
u/RetroFutureKid · 10 pointsr/Atlanta

For one person? Pick up 5lbs of live crawfish from Dekalb or Buford Hwy Farmers Market.

Use whatever butter you prefer, but keep in mind this will be intense so if you're looking for accent flavors, they may not show up as desired.

  • 4-6oz of powder crab boil
  • 3oz of liquid crab boil
  • 1 tea bag crab boil
  • 1 head scored/salted garlic w/ tip cut off (save tips and throw into boil)
  • 1/2 head of celery
  • 1-2 onions quartered
  • Bottle of beer
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • Kosher salt

    As much veggies as you want.

    You can use pink salt, but it'll be rather expensive and there will be so much flavor in here that it really won't stand out.

    You can steam or dunk in reserved boil liquid to reheat the crawfish the following day provided you keep them covered during refrigeration overnight.

    Tony Chachere's is our NOLA equivalent to Old Bay, but it is a little saltier (to me at least)

    Fried oysters:

  • 1 cup corn flour or finer grain cornmeal. some people like to add italian bread crumbs into the mix.
  • 1 1/2 tsp of salt, but omit if you're using salty gulf/apalachicola oysters
  • 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper. 1tsp Tony Cacheres, sweet or smoked paprika will also work.
  • 2 tsp of black pepper
  • peanut oil (frying)
  • 2 eggs
  • milk (or plain greek yogurt cut with some water)

    Make a bath out of the milk and eggs, blend lightly.

    Add oysters, then bread them with the remainder of the ingredients.

    Fry at 350F for about 3-4 minutes. Add Crystal hot sauce and/or fresh lemon juice.

    EDIT: save the shells and fat, then use similar recipe but without as much salt for stock. Use stock in pastas, gumbo, etouffe, bloody Mary Mix, jambalaya, soup base, etc..
u/b4z4r · 10 pointsr/keto

I'll have to bother my wife for her specific curry recipe, I generally just make the cabbage side of it with some shredded cabbage, various spices to taste depending on how i feel (Garlic powder, cumin, curry powder, basil, dill weed, oregano, onion powder - i dont use them all i kind of just feel it out.)

The curry recipe is really easy though, its basically just a can of coconut milk, curry powder, ginger, a bit of turmeric. again, ill have to bother her for the exact proportions but im sure you could just find any coconut milk based curry sauce recipe online and 'keto-ize' it. its really simple, get crazy with spices and enjoy cooking!

oh - and when im not making the cabbage specifically for curry, I often use this: with just any cooking oil, basil, etc. the powder has been an integral part of my keto cooking arsenal for a while now. adds so much flavor!

My breakfast, for example - cabbage, bacon bits, bacon fat for oil, basil / oregano / frank's powder to taste. top with a very gently cooked over easy egg or two and poke the yolk for 'sauce'. add half a sauted onion and cheese if you want to get real crazy.

u/Whootsinator · 10 pointsr/Firearms

Dillo Dust is delicious, and you don't have to buy from LaRue to get it. It is rebranded, repackaged Adkins Western BBQ Rub, available on Amazon. It is a little on the sweet side though, and you might find you like mixing up your own at some point.

u/cellmate4231 · 9 pointsr/Cooking

As much as I'm not a fan of the stuff, MSG is probably the reason you're not quite there on the taste... Like other posters have said, the powder ones with a mix of dairy and then a sprinkle of MSG would probably be the way to get the taste you're looking for

u/RishFush · 7 pointsr/sex

I'll do my "fighter's meal". It's what I eat before I go to my Muay Thai class.

Avocado with this stuff on it. 2 Roma tomatoes with lemon juice on them. Some slices of Havarti cheese. A banana. A protein shake (milk and this stuff). Multivitamin, fish oil, vitamin D. And a whole lot of water throughout.

That'll give me a high, constant energy level for the next 4 hours. If I start getting tired or hungry, I'll devour one of these.

The main goal is healthy fats, fiber, protein, and no processed foods. That'll give you a nice steady energy source with no crashes and no foggy brain.

u/barcodescanner · 7 pointsr/funny

When I moved out of Cincy, I missed it sorely. But guess what? I bought a box of 24 last year, and would be more than happy to send you one - PM me if you're interested.

It's the easiest meal in the world, and you can feed a family of 7 TWICE if you make enough noodles. Here are the tips: go to the grocery deli and buy a 1/2 pound of the American Cheese, but tell them not to slice it. Just cut off a big hunk from the bigger hunk. When you put the ground beef in the water (raw), don't use a fork - that's for sissies who hate Cincinnati Chili. Get your hands in there and pulverize the meat with your fingers until it feels like silk.

If you can manage that and have 3 hours to stir occasionally, you will be satisfied. I promise.

u/sassynapoleon · 7 pointsr/ramen

This is my favorite, but I don't find it spicy enough. So I add some frozen corn, a soft boiled egg, a few dashes of ground carolina reaper
and top with some nori.

This is all you really need for Cajun cooking. If you want, I can link you a red beans and rice recipe that I use that everyone I serve it to loves.

u/nexuschild · 5 pointsr/sousvide

I like to do asian style. I season the belly with char sui rub (make your own or something like this), bag it and let it sit for at least a day in the fridge. At this point you can as well freeze so it can be dropped directly in a bath at a later date.

I then do either 68C/154F for 36 hours or if I have less time 70C/158F for 16 hours. The longer one has better texture but it is a small difference.

Then cooled, pressed, and cut into 2"x2" squares. Then brushed in char sui sauce that is slightly thinned with rice wine vinegar and put under a very hot grill (broiler) to caramelize the sauce, turning so all sides are crispy.

Serve with rice, stir fried bok choi, and quick pickled cucumbers to cut through the richness.

As mentioned by someone else also save some for the Kenji porchetta recipe as that is also very good. Also the chinese steamed buns (also a SE recipe) are good if you can get the buns from an asian market.

u/gangstarollerbunny · 5 pointsr/Bento

Thank you so much!

  • Sliced my chicken breast in half, lengthwise.
  • Tenderized it with a meat tenderizer so that it was even.
  • Season with Mrs Dash Salt-Free Original Blend seasoning, Trader Joe's Everyday seasoning, salt, pepper, and Goya Adobo seasoning. I just eyeballed the amounts, but the Mrs Dash seasoning was the main component, then the TJ every day seasoning, and then just a light sprinkle of the adobo seasoning, and salt+pepper to taste.
  • Use a napkin soaked in half vegetable oil and half olive oil to oil the pan.
  • High heat and cook the chicken breasts until it's done.
u/ze_blue_sky · 5 pointsr/ketorecipes

First, an immersion blender is the best fricking purchase for the kitchen. I am so in love with mine and use it weekly. But basically, mashed cauli is super easy. For this one specifically, I boiled a head of cauli and then in a separate bowl put 3 oz neufchatel (cream cheese), 3 oz shredded sharp cheddar, some grated parmesan, garlic powder, adobo, lots of cracked pepper, a bit of rosemary, and some hot paprika. Once the cauli is soft, drain it and shake it a decent bit to get a ton of water out, pour into the bowl, then immersion blend! And done! So easy. So good.

u/rabton · 5 pointsr/Cooking

Yep - I moved to the northeast from Indiana and get cravings for Cincinnati chili a lot. This recipe wasn't too far off from Skyline but I have some random Better Homes cookbook with a Cincy chili recipe that I actually prefer to Skyline.

You can also buy the spice packets from Amazon. I know most Krogers I went to in Indiana had them as well.

u/InnocentCrook · 5 pointsr/cincinnati

My wife and I lived a few different places on the west coast while she did travel nursing for a year. I had my mom ship me packets of Cincinnati recipe chili seasoning and would make my own. It's a super easy recipe and it makes your whole place smell like Cincy style chili which is awesome.

u/Redshift2k5 · 5 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

There's lots of things you can use that are naturally high in MSG which you may find in bulk stores, supplement stores, specialty stores. Yeast extracts, soup bases, bullion. Kombu, dashi, soy sauce, bonito Flake for asian flavour dishes.

also you can just buy some on Amazon?

I know this goes against reason #1, but here's what cajun seasoning means to me in recipes as someone who grew up in the south. It's good stuff.

Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning

u/wyndyday · 5 pointsr/glutenfreecooking

I usually pre portion out all my "campus food" on Sundays so I can have it ready to go in the mornings to stay on campus all day. So, basically, tupperware. This might be way too much information...

I start my day with a shake from a powder, almond milk, and water. If I've worked out, I use this. I get the vanilla one, which I think tastes great and it's GF, SF, DF. If I don't work out I use something with soy in it that's lower cal. The shakes keep me full for about two hours.

Mid morning snack: I buy the ground turkey in tubes and make my own turkey sausage using this recipe minus the marjoram because I don't know what that is... I double the recipe and freeze most of it so I have enough for awhile.

If that seems like too much work, (it's a lot of work but hot damn, so worth it, I promise) You can just do bacon in the oven and portion it out and freeze it. Or you could hard boil eggs and portion those out too.

I do a big batch of frozen mixed veggies that I cook stove-top with some olive oil and Tony's. Gotta get those veggies in! I portion those out in baggies and freeze some.

I eat a lot of deli meat, which you can roll up and eat by itself or cut up and eat over salad.

I portion out my carrots in advance and put some store bought hummus into the tiny little tupperware. If you don't like hummus you could do salsa or peanut butter.

I personally don't eat beans. But if you do, black beans are your friend! You can flavor them with a taco seasoning packet and put them on corn tortillas with veggies. Minimal effort and delicious.

I don't eat a lot of carbs, but if you do, don't forget about rice, baked potatoes, and sweet potatoes. All are easily portable and pretty damn good. I know there are good GF breads, but all the ones I've tried have been extremely unsatisfying, so I tend to stay away from those products and try to eat less processed stuff.

I usually eat a GF protein bar too. But I guess a lot of those have soy. These are great. They're in the cereal isle for me. Lately I've been eating Quest bars like crazy.

I also end up throwing a banana and an apple in my bag too. I try to eat every two hours, so this way I have 100-200 calories every two hours. I can easily bring enough food for me to comfortably stay on campus for 12 hours.

Almost forgot! My lazy AF lunch: A packet of Starkist tuna and an avacado. Just gotta run a knife around the avacado and baggie it before you leave the house. (Slice but don't pull it apart so it won't brown) Just bring a tupperware, mash the avacado with the tuna until it looks like one nasty blob of grey, and it's honestly really really good. Tons of protein to keep you satiated. Salt and pepper makes it even better. Throw it on a corn tortilla, eat with tortilla chips, or just with a fork.

u/AmyLynn4104 · 4 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Sliced up with a sprinkling of Tajin. Just the cukes or add some mango & jicama.

u/flip983 · 4 pointsr/food

you wouldn't want to use the jar of sauce for cost reasons mainly. Buy the packet, mix with water to make the marinade, will be much cheaper, especially if you are marinating a bunch of meat (typically pork). You can use the jar, like OP did, for a small batch, but even there it would be better to marinade using a packet, then toss or glaze with a small amount of sauce after cooking.

These are the packets I use, a 12 pack from Amazon runs $22

u/juggerthunk · 4 pointsr/Cooking

Uh, no. Neither Goya Adobo Seasoning nor Lawry's Seasoned Salt contain MSG. Check the ingredients. Lawry's explicitly says "No MSG". They're also both loose powders in shaker bottles.

u/tresbizarre · 4 pointsr/Ohio

For future reference, I've made some pretty good chili with these Cincinnati Chili spice packets.

u/Daesleepr0 · 4 pointsr/Frugal

u/AbbyMoriah · 4 pointsr/recipes

Also good: Add in Tony Chachere's

u/rahlquist · 4 pointsr/AskCulinary

There is a bit more than that. Here goes.

I give the meat a good rub with Butt Rub then drop it in the crock pot with 1-1.5cups of apple cider vinegar with an equal amount of water to nearly cover the butt. Cook 4-5 hours high or 8 on low. Remove from liquid, drain liquid and set aside leaving crock pot on, set to low. Place shredded meat back in pot and cover with a bottle of your fave bbq sauce.

If you need to add liquid to thin the sauce, add some of the vinegar/water mixture from the reserved water (avoiding the fat on top). Cook another 20-40 mins to taste.

Its my answer to cheap pulled pork like Loyds. It comes out nice and tangy like Carolina bbq.

u/drbudro · 4 pointsr/asianeats

If you like Thai food, pick up some Golden Mountain sauce. You could always mix brown sugar with a light soy sauce in a pinch, but I like having the real deal on hand.

I love (spicy) banana ketchup on all kinds of stuff, especially non-asian food (my favorite is breakfast street tacos with spicy banana ketchup). nom nom nom

Filipino spicy vinegar is also one that I buy a lot of because it lasts forever. It's great for dipping and marinades or using in place of rice vinegar to spice up a dish.

For hot sauces, I always have sambal oelek or chili garlic at the table. Both are also great for cooking/marinades.

If you can find it for cheap, pre-made bulgogi sauce is great for when you need to whip up a large/fast/delicious meal for friends.

u/abngeek · 4 pointsr/Nootropics

Amazon also sells it in bulk for a fraction of what Accent costs.

1lb bag for roughly the same as Safeway charges for a 4.5 oz shaker of Accent.

Ajinomoto MSG in Plastic Bag, 16 Ounce

u/currentscurrents · 4 pointsr/Cooking

I bought a 1lb bag of it for like $3 at one of the local Asian groceries in my area. This should last me a while.

Edit for the downvoters: What, you don't believe MSG comes in 1lb bags?

u/cleaningallthethings · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

If you're going shopping for rice vinegar anyway, look for furikake, it'll make your rice taste even better.

Flavors to watch out for... these are the common kinds but I'd avoid the seaweed only ("Nori Komi"), the wasabi, and the shrimp ("Ebi Fumi"). I wouldn't usually get the salmon one either but it might complement your salmon sushi. The other ones should be good. Also, look for "made in Japan" because a lot of the cheaper furikakes are not made in Japan and don't taste as good. Oh, and that Amazon link is ridiculously expensive, usually they're like $4-7 a bottle in Asian supermarkets.

This man is lying to you. Use tony chachere's instead of Old Bay and Use Zatarans crab boil. Also put crushed whole garlic, corn on the cob and potatoes in the pot.

Anyone who say's old bay in favor of Tony's is objectively wrong.

Cut out calories at breakfast. Only eat enough to get you to lunch.

Cut out calories at lunch, only eat enough to get you to dinner.

Buy this. It makes chicken, pork, lambchop, and eggs taste amazing.

u/arriflex77 · 3 pointsr/Fitness

I use this Creole Seasoning and totally love it, though it makes things a bit on the salty side unless you're careful about quantity. I usually give a generous coating on both sides of the breast, sear each breast for 6 minutes on just one side, then pop them in a baking dish in the oven. Super easy and tastes great, been doing this for a few weeks now.

Other things I've done include curry spices (you can look up recipes/rations or just do like I do and wing it and hope for the best), fresh cilantro, also cook down a bunch of onions with some garlic and then cook the chicken with the browned onions, you can also get "poultry seasoning" mixes that have various herbs with garlic and onion powder. Fresh herbs are great, they tend to be cheap at ethnic markets (hipanic, asian) when they are otherwise pretty pricey for a tiny bunch. I always go for cilantro but thyme and rosemary are amazing with chicken.

I don’t think there’s one right way to make it. Yours sounds interesting, but looks like it may come out too saucy or wet? Here’s my interpretation of it.

Same way as yours just no paste, no coconut milk, no garlic. Use Madra’s Curry Powder, with oyster sauce, some “mountain sauce” and fish sauce, and a little sweet soy for, well sweetness. I like to add an egg to it as well.

Madra’s Curry Powder

Mountain Sauce

Sweet Soy Sauce

u/JustinJSrisuk · 3 pointsr/MensLib

I do! I was born into a family that owned a Thai restaurant, which I took over from age 18 to 27, and I’ve also a total whore for Asian cuisine so I can definitely help with soy sauce suggestions!

So here’s a great tip: you should have at least two different kinds of soy sauce including a light soy sauce and a dark one, with perhaps two or three additional kinds of specialty soy-based seasoning sauces. While that sounds like a lot, generally soy sauce is an inexpensive ingredient, even for more high-quality brands, and a bottle will last you for ages. I’ll give you a few recommendations for each category. As a side note these are Amazon links, but if you have access to an Asian grocery store then I absolutely suggest buying them there instead as you would save at least 50% off the prices.

Light Soy Sauce: this is your workaday soy sauce, the kind you would add savory saltiness to stir-fries or dip your sushi in.

Pearl River Bridge Golden Label Superior Light Soy Sauce - is a great standby favorite of Asian chefs the world over, especially in the seafood palaces of Hong Kong. It’s less jarringly salty than say a Kikkoman, with more complexity. Pearl River Bridge is a really well-respected brand of Asian condiments, generally all of their products will be either good to excellent. Note that they produce two different varieties of light soy sauce, the “Superior” and the “Golden Label” - always go for the Golden Label, it’s just better in every way than the “Superior”.

The second light soy sauce I’d recommend is San-J Tamari - which is made wholly of soybeans without any wheat. While this is good news for anyone with gluten sensitivity issues, the flavor has a more pronounced umami because of it.

Dark Soy Sauce: think of dark soy sauce as a soy balsamic vinegar - it’s a highly-concentrated, almost syrupy sauce that also has a bit of sugar for a hint of sweetness. It is ideal for marinades, salad dressings, glazes, I’ve even used it in desserts!

[Pearl River Bridge Mushroom Flavored Superior Dark Soy Sauce](16.9 oz. - is an umami bomb to your tastebuds, rich with portobello mushroom notes and a perfect accompaniment to red meat dishes like wok-seared ribeye with gai lan aka Chinese broccoli.

Healthy Boy Thai Sweet Soy Sauce White Label - as thick as molasses, this sweet soy is essential in traditional Thai noodle dishes like ผัดซีอิ้ว (pad see iew) and is also good when you want to add a little savoriness to sweet recipes. I once made sweet soy brownies with a healthy dollop of this and they were utterly fantastic.

Miscellaneous Soy Sauces: these are usually different varieties of flavored soy sauces from around Asia.

SHIMOUSA PONZU - ponzu is a mixture of soy sauce and yuzu, which is the juice of a Japanese citrus fruit. This bright sauce adds a lemony kick to salad dressings and jazzes up seafood. Try it as a marinade for salmon crudo or as a dipping sauce for your favorite sashimi.

Golden Mountain Seasoning Sauce - oh my god do I love this stuff, it tastes like my childhood as my Dad would always cook my favorite meal (pineapple fried rice with shrimp, chicken, veggies and cashews) with this sauce. It’s a soy sauce with a very distinctive tangy kick, and I use it in everything from fried rices, eggs, soups, noodles, stir-frys, you name it. Everyone I have sample this wonderful sauce ends up being addicted!

I skipped over a lot of stuff, like the recent rise in artisanal soy sauces, many of which are even aged in barrels! But I think that this is a good start for someone who wants to explore beyond the disposable packets they get from the takeaway place. Let me know if you have any more questions! (Or if you want a recommendation for fish sauces, because I could literally write monographs on the subject!)

u/spunky-omelette · 3 pointsr/recipes

It's a sauce that's similar to soy sauce, but it definitely imparts a very Thai flavor to your dishes. I find it's kind of a secret ingredient that kicks my stuff up to restaurant levels.

It's in a green bottle, and you can find it at most asian marts. If you live in an area with a larger asian population, you might even find it at a regular supermarket.

I love Japanese curry, it's delicious. It's nothing like the Indian or Thai varieties though. I just followed the recipe on the back of this curry package. I used chicken thighs and breast.

u/OMADer2762 · 3 pointsr/omad

Most Japanese people use curry cubes S&B and Vermont curry are the two main brands. I prefer S&B, but both are good. "Hot" is not hot or spicy at all, Japanese food is generally not spicy and their idea of spicy is a lot less than ours.

u/HeliosTrick · 3 pointsr/StLouis

Amazon has it pretty cheap, like this item:

I use the Ajinomoto brand myself, works great. Any decent size supermarket should have it as well, barring that, check your local ethnic market. Just remember that you don't need a ton of it to boost the flavor of a dish.

u/poop-trap · 3 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

There are lots of other different types of Japanese rice toppings depending on what you like. In addition to different flavors of Furikake there's also Shichimi and Gomashio, all fantastic on rice.

u/BillHang4 · 3 pointsr/spicy

Agree with using reaper powder, but this is way more for your money. Amazon lists it as 1.5 oz but it’s actually two and is very hot and very versatile. Just be careful, it is super fine (do not try to smell it).

u/joecamel_ · 3 pointsr/spicy

If maybe he'd like the powdered version as well, I'd try Wicked Reaper.

Serious heat, and I feel like it will last me all year. Two light sprinkles to a full bowl of food and you're all set for the heat.

u/GoodGuyGiff · 3 pointsr/hotones

As someone that has been a hot sauce and spicy food connoisseur for 30 years, here’s where I’m at.

On Amazon get a bottle of “Carolina Reaper Chili Pepper Powder Wicked Reaper World's Hottest Chili Pepper” or “Scorpion Powder Chili Spice Seasoning Trinidad Moruga Pepper Powder Red Tail” (the scorpion is my favorite)

The bottle is about $10 and will last you quite a while. Since it is nothing but the pepper itself, you can add it to food to drastically raise the heat level without changing the flavors. Sometimes you want heat but maybe your hot sauce is made with something that may not pair well with the food you’re eating. This is where the powders come in handy. Hot sauces can be pretty pricey and it stinks that with a lot of the sauces what you’re paying for is usually a lot of vinegar or other cheaper ingredients.

Don't see a lot of Asian representation yet, so here are some of my go-to lazy dinners. Basically the "Hamburger Helper" type recipes for our Asian household.

Char Siu Chicken Wings:

1 packet Char Siu Seasoning Mix

1-2 lb chicken wings

Dump the mix on the wings and mix and make sure to NOT add water. Mix and cover the wings thoroughly. Leave it in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Bake at 400 for 45min on a rack. Broil for extra crispiness at the end if you like.

Bonus photo of the finished product, I like mine broiled a bit extra for that char flavor. Side of roasted brussel sprouts + rice.


Lazy Korean BBQ Chicken

1-2 lb boneless chicken thigh meat cut to 2-3 inch strips

Jar of Korean Chicken & Pork Marinade

Essentially the same instructions as the wings. Dump the marinade on the thigh meat and leave in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours. Bake at 400 for 45min on a rack, finish with a broil if you like. Great with a side of kim chi & rice.


Slow Cooker Japanese Curry

1 box Japanese Curry Sauce Mix

2-3 lb meat of choice (chunked for stew)

2 yellow onions, chopped

2 carrots, chopped

2 potatoes, large chunks

~6 cups water (however much you need to just cover the ingredients in the slow cooker)

Sear the meat first if you like. Dump all the ingredients into the slow cooker. Cook on low for about 8 hours. Serve over rice. Note that you could also prepare the curry sauce mix on the stovetop as per the instructions on the back of the box. I just normally go for the slow cooker method when I want to set it and forget it.

u/Pufflekun · 2 pointsr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu

Just buy some of this and pour on as much as you want. Yumness.

u/TwoZeros · 2 pointsr/cincinnati

Use these. Add whatever ground meat you want and tomato paste. It is my current favorite with ground turkey and you can simmer it down to be as thick as you would like.

u/TheGogmagog · 2 pointsr/PlantBasedDiet

Instead of beef, I add cauliflower to the 'Skyline' packets. They say "Cincinnati Chilli", but come out of the Skyline factory address.

u/brady_bear3 · 2 pointsr/ketorecipes

i'm from Maryland originally, where Old Bay originated and is made, and i can tell you, this stuff is like crack. i can/have put it on practically everything that is not a sweet dish. put it on chicken regularly, pizza, any veggies, and of course on any seafood. i go thru an entire bottle of it by myself annually, if not quicker. been having a lot more of it during keto so this one may not last that long....

u/hillstfr · 2 pointsr/baltimore

make sure you have a good size pot to steam them in...a turkey fryer with some kind of insert that keeps the crabs out of the steaming liquid will do well (an overturned stainless mixing bowl could do the trick). Also remember to get your hands on a big can of Old Bay. Really no point in steaming crabs if you don't have it. fill a cereal bowl half full with kosher salt and then fill it to the top with old bay. mix. sprinkle over crabs (do it in layers)

Get live crabs. Large males if the can (females don't tastes as good and should be in the bay anyway). Crabs can actually survive quite a while out of the water if kept in the right conditions, so overnight fedex should be fine. Also get yourself a half dozen crab mallets ....opening claws and such. Re-heating crabs is bad bad bad.

Order a case of natty boh too. Pour a couple cans in the bottom, toss in equal cans of both water & vinegar and you should be good to go. Just make sure there's enough to steam for ~30 mins (likely less)

As for pricing, you're going to get raped. Take it like a man.

As for how many you can prob get by with a half bushel. Experience bawlmorons could plow through a dozen crabs a no prob, but your friends' inexperienced kentucky hands are going to tire of picking crabs before they get to a dozen.

Steam a dozen ears of corn too. 'Cause it's awesome. I'd suggest silver queen, but whatever the local mega mart has will do. daughters and a family friend pulled a dozen and a half off their pier a few weeks ago and demolished them...sooo yummy.

u/DipshitMcFuckFace · 2 pointsr/MurderedByWords

Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning, 8 Ounce Shakers

I put this on everything, but I highly recommend trying it on veggies. Brussels, green beans, asparagus - all are really well complimented with it. Despite being “Cajun” it’s not as spicy as it is flavorful.

I put it on everything (instead of salt).

u/rise_above_this · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I'm originally from Louisiana, lol. :D Spices are a given, but I find that people tend to be locked-in on what they like! Here are my favorites (this is outside of stuff like garlic, etc), which are cajun & latino in flavor.

u/snakydog · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Last week I went camping with a pair of friends. This is what we made.

For dinner we cut up some red potatoes, red peppers, onions and bratwurst. Seasoned it with a bit of this stuff and fried it in the skillet. It came out great. Very easy, very tasty.

Another good way to cook is to just take food and wrap it in aluminum foil. For instance, take a potato, cut it open lengthwise, sprinkle in some minced peppers or whatever. Spread butter all around the outside of the potato and put a bit inside with the onions. Then wrap it with at least two layers of aluminum foil. Drop it in the hot coals of the fire. Make sure you count how many you put in, they can get pretty charred and unrecognizable. Test for doneness with a fork.

I've always fried turkeys, but this past year I smoked two boneless breast as well and they turned out great. I used the same recipe on the smoked ones that I did on the fried ones.

I'll inject my turkeys the night before and saran wrap then throw back in the fridge. The day off I'll pull out of the fridge and rub down with olive oil and then Cajun seasoning.

For the injection I've always done Cajun Injector Mesquite BBQ

For the rub I use Tony Chacheres Creole Seasoning

Every turkey I've done turns out juicy and moist so I've never bothered to brine mine.

u/Kalineab · 2 pointsr/smoking

I did a roughly 2-3 hour "dry brine", just salt, pepper, and a liberal coat of [Butt rub](Bad Byron’s Butt Rub Barbeque Seasoning BBQ Rubs (26 ounce) I thought it had plenty of flavor, and while I've cooked a LOT of chicken in various ways this is the juiciest chicken I've ever had.

u/DazzlingDoodles · 2 pointsr/keto

I do a variation of a sushi bowl every day, just without the rice.

Avocado + some form of fish/seafood/meat + cucumber

I sprinkle the bowl with furikake, dip the bites in some soy sauce or spicy mayo, and it's pretty tasty. The flavors are all there.

I've done cauliflower rice, but I thought the cream cheese changed the flavor too much. Instead, I've seasoned it like sushi rice and just eaten everything in a bowl together. With the furikake, it still tastes like a roll, it's just easier to prepare. It's easy, delicious, and it can scratch that itch.

u/microbean_ · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

No, one of the two grocery stores near me carries furikake in a jar. Could you order it online? Here’s a link to it on Amazon:

Nori Fume Furikake Rice Seasoning - 1.7 oz

UPDATE: The reviews on this product indicate that the item shipped actually has MSG and maltodextrin in it, which aren’t mentioned in the listing. So maybe don’t buy this specific one! I’m sure there are other better furikake products available online. Good luck!

My top 3:

John Henry’s Texas Chicken Tickler is great on a beer can chicken.

Pappy’s Choice for grilled tri tip. Never misses. Yes this is the size I get. Lasts about a year.

Busha Browne’s Jerk Rub. Super tasty. Although it is a bit pricey and I’ve found a recipe to make my own. Great on chicken, pork, fish, everything - accompany with pineapple or other hot sweet fruit salsa.

u/Chron_X · 2 pointsr/smoking

I use this:

I've never actually been to Pappy's so I am not certain it's the same rub they use on their ribs but it is an excellent rib rub nonetheless.

There is also a low sodium version on Amazon. The garlic and herb rub they make is great too.

u/matbiskit · 2 pointsr/smoking

Tri Tip typically comes with a fat cap that you will want to trim back so it can render. You can smoke tri-tip but not to a 200-205 type temperature. Something like 120-130 depending and then do a hard reverse sear.

Traditional Santa Maria tri tip rub is just salt, pepper and garlic. Being from central California I grew up on this stuff. I use Pappy's Seasoning.

u/grimoiregirl · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I'm a big fan of the $1 snack items at walgreen's- dried fruits, nuts, sunflower seeds, and sesame chips.

Get the lettuce of your choice- I keep a vinaigrette in my desk from Sam's that's got mustard in it, but dressing or no dressing depending on your choice. It's fairly easy to eat loose spinach leaves or break up a head of lettuce with your fingers.

If you have hot water, you should be able to make minute rice as a main dish. Maybe invest in something like this
When I worked in a hotel we did oatmeal cups- dried quick oats in little cardboard bowls, with brown sugar and a couple dried fruit or nut options, and then people could add hot water- you could make those and have them portioned out in tupperware or something, and do something similar with minute rice or rice stick noodles, dried veggies, and maybe a bottle of some type of sauce-

According to elderly hmong ladies in my community, this is what you buy instead of soy sauce. It's much cheaper at asian food stores.

What is Golden Mountain Sauce?

Edit - Found it.

u/dahmerlikesthetaste · 2 pointsr/AskCulinary

I add a table spoon of Bull Head BBQ sauce to my beef soups... (it my secret ingredient!)

Or try some Golden Mountain Sauce for some major umami and not as much soy flavor as soy sauce.

u/doomrabbit · 2 pointsr/AskCulinary

As someone that loves both beef and chicken, I have to admit that they really don't play well with each other, unlike most every other meat. Cajun will put almost all the rest of God's creatures in a gumbo, but never chicken with beef.

That said, try some Golden Mountain sauce for a deep flavor that plays well with chicken. It's the secret to Thai cooking to add savory/umami flavor without the heavy hand of traditional dark soy sauces.

u/femmevillain · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Yummy and easy comfort food. Gotta add some chả lụa or Chinese sausages as well.

Edit: Golden Mountain Seasoning Sauce is basically the staple Vietnamese soy sauce. Grew up with it and nothing else really compares.

u/boonquack · 2 pointsr/Cooking

i make my fried rice with leftovers. it is awesome.

here is what i do.

  1. oil wok, heat it up.

  2. if you are using raw/frozen meat/veggies, throw them in and cook them first. marinate, season them, whatever. add chopped green onion to the heated oil. this is what makes it have that "chinese restaurant" taste.

  3. add the rice. this allows it to absorb the oniony goodness. i prefer using cold (cooked) rice that has been left in the fridge from the previous day.

  4. add soy sauce to taste. i prefer this stuff ( but kikkoman or maggi will do just fine.

  5. mix that mothefucker up.

  6. to add egg, make a hole in the middle of the pile of rice, cook the egg in said hole. dont worry if it gets on the rice, you're mixing it into the stuff anyway. use a spatula to stir (not scramble) the egg so it cooks better.

  7. at this point i would add the (cooked) leftover meat (costco rotisserie chicken is amazing) and other leftovers i think would taste good with it. (vegetables, bacon, just hunt in your fridge for things you think would be good)

  8. when the cold stuff is warm, you are done. chow down.
u/horror_unfolds · 2 pointsr/food

If you're looking for something quick and easy this soy sauce is absolutely delicious and you can find it at most Asian supermarkets.

Something more involved? Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a medium sauce pan over high heat, when it's smoking hot add two whole cloves, two cardamom pods, and a cinnamon stick. Stir continuously until they pop. Add 1/4 cup diced onion and cook until translucent. Finally, add dry rice, a bit of salt, and however much water it takes to cook. Bring to a boil then simmer until all the water is absorbed, fluff with a fork and enjoy.

u/hlhlhlhl · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I love making Japanese curry with ground meat instead of stew meats. If you have picky kids, replacing cubed stewing meat with ground meat in crockpot kind of recipes really helps.

Japanese curry is really easy to make. You buy curry roux (most American groceries will carry it in the Asian section but hit an Asian supermarket for more selection) and then brown your meat with onions in a pan. Then you add peeled potatoes and carrots and add water to cover and break up your roux into it and then just simmer until everything's soft and the sauce thickens and put leftovers in the fridge (or if you're like me and was raised with Asian parents that didn't grow up with refrigeration, you can reboil it after you're done and leave it on the stove : - S). You can also just throw everything in a crockpot, go to work, and come home to a tub of sweet curry. And have your home smell of curry for a few days.

The sauce itself is most traditionally eaten over rice but you can eat it with bread, over udon noodles or over spaghetti (all of which are authentic to how Japanese enjoy their curry)

u/DurraSell · 2 pointsr/StLouis

I use this rub, and let them sit overnight. A couple of minutes per side over direct heat, then a long simmer in a beer:Mauls mix at 2:1 until the sauce has reduced by half.

Liver Sandwich

Take a thick slice of calf liver, about 1/2" thick. Fry it in a pan. Brown both sides but don't overcook. Unlike most other types of meat, liver doesn't get softer when it cooks, it gets firmer instead. If you overcook it will be too tough to be tasty.

After the liver is cooked, remove it from the pan. Add some sliced onions (and some butter if you need to). Fry the onions until they are lightly browned.

Take a couple slices of bread (fresh bread, thick slices are best), put liver and onions on. Add a few drops of Maggi Seasoning Sauce. It's very popular in Europe (specially Germany), but you can find it in many grocery stores here in the US as well. This is the best thing you can add to a liver sandwich, it really brings out the flavor.

If you don't have Maggi Seasoning Sauce, you can use a small amount of ketchup instead, or if not, just a tiny sprinkle of salt. Liver has a lot of flavor on its own, so all you really need to add is a little salt to help the flavor along.

u/Devvils · 1 pointr/Cooking
  • I use self-raising flour instead of plain flour! It work in most recopies except choux pastry

  • Add a few drops of yellow food colouring to a batter to give it a creamy colour.

  • I just found out about Maggi Seasoning after 40 years of cooking. Its like a soy sauce you can add to western dishes.

  • I keep "French onion soup" mix in the fridge & add as a seasoning if a dish is bland

  • I now make gravy with pan juices + flour + stock cube + 2 teaspoons butter + some dried herbs + tablespoon of of wine, heat in microwave til boiling, blend with a stick blender & pass through a medium sieve. It makes a nice complex smooth gravy.

Breakfast and dinner can both be fairly simple meat/veggie/beans. If you're staying at a single campsite and have coolers to store your food, anyways. Beans can be come from cans or you can pack them dry and soak them the night before somewhere at your site and cooked in a pot over the fire. Carrots, zucchini, broccoli, and other veggies can be stored and kept fresh and are easy enough to grill. The carrots and zucchini can also be used in kebabs with sweet peppers and chicken or steak.

Lunch isn't as easy in my head. An insulated lunch bag with deli meat or cold, cooked chicken and snacking veggies like carrot sticks, cucumber, etc tossed with Tajin or something similar.

This isn't really a recipe, but sometimes my family members just send me these packets, and I mix it into vegan "ground beef" crumbles with a bit of tomato paste and perhaps some veggie broth and let it simmer for a while. The packets are pretty salty, though, just so you know. The packet has some suggestions for proportions as well. Sometimes I mix in some beans too!

One other thing that I've done to mix it up and make it a bit healthier was eating the chili with spaghetti squash instead of spaghetti. Obviously, empty carbs are tastier, but it was fun to try out and mix it up :)

MSG, I believe I saw it in a grocery store I think CVS or Vons I can't remember. It's also available here

u/WeddingShit · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

Brussels sprouts!! Cauliflower is another good one.

I usually just do olive oil, sea salt and fresh black pepper, but I often reach for Tony Chacheres when i want to kick it up. It's so good!

Idk if that's what Five Guys uses, but it's what we all use in South Louisiana. Pronounced "Sah-shur-ee's." You could try Slap Ya Mamma seasoning, too.

u/levirules · 1 pointr/Fitness

Get one of these, use it to steam your veggies until they are soft, and sprinkle some of this on em.

So. Friggin. Good.

Not too spicy, I used this creole seasoning, used 1.5 TSP and had some zing to it but wasn’t spicy. The recipe called for the garlic sauce so I got some and don’t regret it one bit.

I used to buy carton egg whites, and put them in this microwave omelette maker. It takes like 5 min to make a whole omelette. All you need is the egg whites, some shredded cheese, chopped veggies (buy Pico DE Gallo it works perfect) and a touch of Cajun seasoning

On just about anything (seafood, poultry, beef or pork) - Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning

Also a big fan of True Lemon and True Lime, altho, not "spicy" per se, mostly tart, but really sets off fish, poultry and most vegetables from the "same old same old".

Louisiana Crawfish, Crab and Shrimp Boil is also really nice (not just for boiling seafood) - mostly salt, garlic, onion, cayenne and a pinch of cinnamon. A little goes a LONG weay, it's easy to overdo it with this one. Great for seasoning potatoes tho (fries, or just boiled new potatoes)

Bad Byron's Butt Rub Link for you guys.

u/BigCliff · 1 pointr/smoking

To me, the amount of time the rub has on the meat matters almost as much as the rub itself. I coat shoulders VERY liberally 48 hrs in advance of cooking and find these come out MUCH better than butts rubbed only a day or an hour in advance.

I mean, we're talking about a cut of meat that's possibly 5" thick! Takes a while for the rub to penetrate.

I prefer low sugar rubs so they don't get burnt, and have found nothing that I like better than Bad Byron's Butt Rub

I use butt rub.

Thats some nice looking brisket. I'd like to share my recipe for anyone interested.

I have a Green Mountain Grill that I fill using fruitwood pellets. I usually buy my brisket from Costco due to price. I take the briskets and dryrub with a pork butt rub I found at my local butcher (will leave link below). I let the dryrubbed brisket sit it the fridge overnight wrapped in foil.

On cooking day, I warm the smoker to 200-225 and put the brisket on fat side down. I leave it sit this way until the internal temp reaches about 160. I try to leave it about 3-4 hours adjusting temp as needed. Every hour, I spray the brisket with apple juice to keep it moist and add flavor. I will reapply rub as necessary during this time as well.

Once the brisket reaches 160 F, I pull it off and lay it on a bed of foil FAT SIDE UP. This is very important for allowing the fat juice into the meat. I then fashion the foil into a boat, but still wrapped. Then, I pour in about 1/2 cup beef broth into the wrapped boat to allow the brisket to simmer in it. With the brisket laying in beef broth, fat side up, and wrapped in foil, I put it back in the smoker.

The meat will stay in here a few more hours till it reaches about 190-195 F. At that point, I pull the whole thing off still wrapped, and let it rest on the counter for 30 - 60 minutes. When people are ready to eat, I unwrap it and cut in against the grain. I get a beautiful smoke ring, great seasoned flavor, and still moist due to the apple juice and beef broth. It is so difficult to mess this up. Its the easiest way I've found to cook brisket well every time.

Hope this is useful to someone.

Sushi/rice seasoning. It’s fucking awesome.

Nori Fume Furikake Rice Seasoning - 1.7 oz

u/kilamumster · 1 pointr/Cooking

Hawaiian Hurricane popcorn is specifically made by that company.

You can make a similar mix with a package of kettle corn popcorn, arare, and furikake. As for Kim chi powder, you're on your own. Maybe add a Korean dried ground hot pepper seasoning? Anyway, here's the rest of the ingredients:

If you can find arare (seasoned mochi rice cracker puffs aka mochi crunch or kaki mochi) locally, it's probably much cheaper, a few dollars for 4-5 servings per package.

Then you need furikake mix, specifically nori komi furikake. Or this brand's Aji nori furikake. I get a jar of this for less than $5 and it lasts a long time.

Make popcorn, sprinkle arare and furikake, any hot spice you want.

Good luck!

I do a combination of Pappy's Seasoning and McCormick's Spicy Montreal Steak Seasoning. Sometimes I'll throw in some extra cayenne pepper - just depends how I feel.

For BBQ sauce, my current favorite is Kinder's. I use to always get the Hot version at Safeway here in CA, but I recently discovered the Extra Hot version at Ralphs over here and it's finally a BBQ sauce that is hot enough for me while retaining the barbecue sauce flavor (compared to other sauces that just have overwhelming burn).

You can probably tell I like spicy foods...

i used to live on the central coast and i don't remember pappy's. that being said, it can be had online

Golden Mountain Seasoning Sauce

I get this for about $4 at the local Asian grocery store, and they are almost always sold out. It's the best I've run across thus far.

u/piratesgoyarr · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Braaaaaaaaaaap. Nice contest!

Edit: 0 months for me

One for /u/sweetiebud3, one for /u/drusual, one for /u/rarelyserious to spite his face. I'd prefer platinum-190

Golden mountain seasoning sauce - good for cooking dogs.

Edit: you cheeky monkey. Thanks for the gold!

u/Intensional · 1 pointr/Persona5

It's a legit recipe. I've made this one many times, and it is delicious. It calls for brewed instant coffee and cocoa powder.

If you want to save a lot of time, you can get bricks of Vermont Curry in most grocery stores. It is a very close approximation of scratch made Japanese curry.

I use this Greek seasoning and love it! Everyone I ever make chicken for loves it too!

Cavenders Seasoning Greek, 8 oz

Just a heads up, I rub olive oil on first to get the seasoning to stick well.

u/Bufo_Stupefacio · 1 pointr/Cooking

I use Cavendar's seasoning, a couple strong dashes of Worchestershire, and fresh pepper, salt to taste.

Cavenders has MSG, so that plus the Worchestershire has the umami covered. Cavenders also compliments the flavor of breakfast sausage well.

If it was my choice, the amount of ground pepper added would border on obscene...but my wife is not a fan of pepper or spicy food so I just have to add more to my own once it is plated.

u/TheCrawlingKingSnake · 1 pointr/Cooking

Have you tried using a bit of MSG?

Ajinomoto MSG in Plastic Bag, 16 Ounce

I think it’ll last me for like a year lol. You don’t need to put much in something for a ton of flavor. I put 1/4 tsp in with a hummus recipe using a whole can of chickpeas and I might step down to 1/8 next time.

u/evilyou · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy

You don't even need to heat it, just equal parts in a bowl and stir until the sugar dissolves.

If you're really into rice dishes look into Furikake seasoning, it works on noodles and potatoes and all kinds of stuff too! It'll probably be a little cheaper if you look at an Asian grocery but Amazons price isn't terrible for an 8pack.

It's the exact seasoning that is packaged for LaRue.
