So, with the weather warming up, It’s time to bust out the grills! Every weekend I have that the weather is nice, I’ll buy some beef meats, maybe some bratwurst, chicken, whatever sounds good cooked over flame! Sitting out in the shade, 3DS in hand, I can grill all evening without boredom setting in.
So, I figure we should Have a discussion about what we like to make and consume during the summer months, and just nerd out about food in general!April 28, 2013 at 9:34 pm #30939Galdap Jr. (mopkins)Participant
Honestly I just know how to make good carrots- a technique passed down by my father. drizzle honey and brown sugar on them and wrap them in tinfoil before cooking. Shit’s delicious. other than that, I like to make the ultimate breakfast. I fry mashed potatoes in the pan, alongside a mushroom and onion butter stirfry- nice and caramelized- also cook up some sausages. After that set the toast and make some scrambled eggs with cheese- making sure to put on the cheese when the eggs are just about done and then you mix it up, maybe throw in that stir-fry. Put it all on a plate and you have delicious browned potatoes, cheesy eggs, and mmm mmm good msuhrooms and onions mixed in, and you can put that all and some sausage on some toast and make yourself a delicious sandwich.

Sir, that sounds amazing! I would recommend next time you sauté mushrooms, add a dash or two of worcestershire sauce and maybe two teaspoons of vanilla extract (imitation works fine) to the butter before adding the ‘shrooms pretty good stuff!April 28, 2013 at 11:04 pm #30941SpacevagrantParticipant
I love to cook on the grill. Barbeque ribs, or chicken is usually nice. The key is to cook on a medium low heat and add multiple layers of sauce. Crank up the heat for the last layer so it gets nice and caramelized.
Mostly though it’s gotta be steak, I dry rub my spices which are simple salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder. If I have fresh garlic I will use that instead. Plus I caramelize some onions in a pan to layer on top. It’s a first class ticket to flavor country I tell ya.April 29, 2013 at 9:09 am #30950
It’s Winter in Australia, but like hell that’s gonna stop me from mentioning how I made fried chicken the other night: Breaded with Doritos.
Let that sink in for a bit. Now go try it.

@frozentreasure – I’ve actually been thinking about making Dorito crusted steaks for a while now! Please tell me the chicken turned out as delicious as it sounds!April 29, 2013 at 11:00 am #30954
It was; with how finely I ground the Doritos to make sure they’d definitely stick, it was more like cheese-flavoured bread crumbs, and after frying, the flavour was a lot weaker than it started, but it still came out really well. Next time I’ll probably just hand crush them and see if bigger pieces retain flavour more. But then, next time will probably not be for about three or four months, with how many calories the three pieces of chicken had to contain.

No kidding. I will be giving that a try next time I have some chicken to fry!
Something else that might be worth trying sometime: Cook up some ground beef meats (or turkey) like you are going to make tacos, but instead of using taco shells, crush some nacho cheese Doritos instead, and you can have a Dorito Taco Salad. This was my “go to” meal when I didn’t have much in the way of munnies.April 29, 2013 at 10:46 pm #30966
Been there, done that. Actually, putting Doritos on everything is a good idea.
