Rate me. Dinner thread also.
Meat: Looks moist. Seasoned the correct amount. Some charing, will assume pan cooked.
Potatoes: Red potatoes are hard to judge in consistency from an image because of the lack of starch. Simply my perspective from the image they seem like they're slightly undercooked and could use just a little more seasoning.
Bell & Onion: You obviously cooked these at the same time. Onion cooks faster than Bell, so while your onions are at the beginning stages of caramelizing your Bell will be undercooked. Seasoning looks fine.
Plating: Could be better. That offset...

potatoes turned out fine. I don't roast potatoes often and was surprised how they turned out. bells were a tad undercooked, good observation. it was the first plate I grabbed. I did just put it on the plate and eat desu. And I did use different seasonings on everything. I hate when everything tastes exactly the same.
Who wants one?
So I've got some ground beef here that I've made from some cube steak, and since I don't like to look up random recipes online, what should I do with it tonight?
I've got a fairly well stocked kitchen, pantry, and refrigerator, so I'll likely have any common ingredient and any spice or seasoning you can throw at me, and I'm a good enough cook that no recipe should be unattainable.
So /ck/ what are some of your favorite home cooked dishes, I'm gonna be moving out on my own here soon and I'm gonna need some cheaper but pretty good dishes, casseroles soups what have you.
ITT: your irrational hatred of people pronouncing the names of specific foodstuffs inaccurately
>people calling fried rice 'fly ly' which, whilst being racist, isn't even an accurate Chinese speaker pronunciation because they pronounce it 'fri rye', if anything .
We're going for Indian food today /ck/! What do you order when you go for Indian?
In before poo in loo
>never had a pizza delivered in my life
>pizza place is a 15m walk away
>place order for a single pizza, comes out to $19.95
>every pizza after that is $10.95
>mfw those pizzas would be $5 each on pick-up
Is this some kind of aberration or do cucks really pay this much for delivery?
I only order delivery when they have a special going, like $10/pizza or some kind of two for one deal or shit like that.
Sometimes I can't even be bothered to do that much work and just make a frozen pizza. I always keep a couple in the freezer for nights when I just don't give a fuck and can't be bothered to cook or even order delivery.
same. I have found a 2.50 brand of frozen pizzas that I like way better than the $8.99 medium dominos pizzas. The sauce and the sausage they use are pro tier. The brand name is Mantia's. PS: don't buy their taco pizza it tastes like cardboard.
I couldn't decide whether I wanted pizza or pasta... so I made pasta pizza.
Wine people, care to help a noob?
I seem to like wine for the most part, so I decided to start trying different kinds of wines to see what I like. Today I bought my first bottle, a cheap red wine, and I hate it. It has this weird, bold, offputting flavor and accompanying aroma that I know I recognize but can't quite put my finger on. This flavor and smell, whatever it is, is way too overpowering. I don't know how to describe it or what to compare it to. If I make sure not to breathe through my nose, it tastes a little better (I can actually taste the slight...

wine is made from grape juice and yeast, often aged in barrels. there isn't really an "ingredient" you can avoid. my guess is that your bottle was cheap for a reason. what kind of wine is it and how much did you pay for it?
It's called "Rosemount Diamond Label Shiraz" and it was only $6, so if I end up not drinking it, I'm not too worried. And now that you say "yeast," that rang a bell in my head. I think that's what the smell is, and probably the taste too. Is this common in cheap wines?
It's pretty much impossible for anyone on the internet to tell you whether you have an issue with wine in general, or just that wine, or just the conditions under which you drank that wine. Some people just don't like alcoholic beverages. Some people really dislike reds, or whites, or tannins, or lack of tannins. It may or may not be a specific ingredient; it could just as well be the glass concentrating the alcohol vapors in a way that disagreed with you. If you want to get better at this, drink more wine. Also, I hope I don't have to tell you this, but don't drink the cheapest wine humanly possible. If you live in the west, a reasonable minimum would be $7-10 depending on where you live.
>wine is made from grape juice and yeast, often aged in barrels. there isn't really an "ingredient" you can avoid.
Horribly wrong. Wine makers use dozens of different extracts for flavor, aroma, and color, chemical powders and tablets for stabilization and selectively killing/encouraging microbes, organic and inorganic compounds for fining, etc etc. Not even getting into what goes on the grapes in the vineyard. A few wine makers will give you a full rundown of what they use, usually on their websites, but most will not.
I got all the stuff to make jambalaya except I forgot chicken broth. can I make it with water instead?
Ey /ck/, two hours ago I cut some habaneros and jalapenos for a chili sauce. I washed my hands about a dozen times and even did the dishes in the meantime, but they still burn.
What's worse, my nose hurts because I had to scratch it half an hour ago. I had something in my eye and couldn't get it out because of my spicy fingers. I can't even fap because I'm afraid of burning my dick to a crisp. My fingers are full of tiny wounds and every single one of them burns like gonorrhea.
>mfw vegans think they are not hurting any animals
>no idea how many insects, snakes, mice, birds, etc. got ground up in the combine that harvests their precious vegetables
>source I work at a frozen vegetable factory
>vegans try to convince everyone to stop eating animal products and just eat vegetables
>they completely ignore cultured meat and are holding back the progress of science and technology
>they would probably be happy with the total population of humanity going down instead of finding ways to support more life
When I point this out to vegans they seriously tried to quantify it like, it would take a thousand mice lives to compare to one cow, or a million insects to equal one bird, I don' t even know. They're amoral dickholes, I'd never trust a vegan.
its about reducing it as much as you can. this argument is dumb anyway since animals eat harvest and are slaughtered.
I really wish meat eaters would fuck off against vegans just because they make them ashamed to eat meat.
What is the superior peanus butter, /ck/?
So /ck/ a friend said they'd buy me a bottle of rum of my choice for christmas and I have no idea what to choose.
I want something for sipping preferably, but don't know whether to try something standard or some spiced shit.
What would you get?
