>25 year old "man"
>still fuck up when making poached eggs
Should I just kill myself at this point?
>>
Yes.
>>
How's that going to make the eggs better?

WA-LA!

I'm 30 and and cook poached eggs and I still want to kill myself
>>
>>11744751
Get egg poacher
>>
>>11744751
Get eggs. Bring water to boil. Turn down heat so water is hot but stopped bubbling. Only want a tiny bit of movement in the water so the eggs are undisturbed. Gently crack an egg, as gently as possible, into the water. Use a slotted spoon to retrieve them. There are also tricks with vinegar and whirlpools that aren't really necessary

>>11744751
that seems like a bit of an overreaction
>>
>>11744751
I would just scramble my eggs instead of killing myself
>>
>>11744751
if we knew what we were getting into we would have strangled ourselves in the womb

don't feel too bad OP i fucked up roasting some chuck steak last night and spent all night shitting water and vomiting. Gotta go to work in an hour and i feel like death, plus it's tainted my experience and won't be eating chuck steak for a while even though i really like eating it.

I botched thawing out a whole three pounds of chicken breast the other night, so at least you aren't me.

Vortex method works for me, I get the egg perfectly cooked. No vinegar needed, but they get a weird distended shape from the water motion. Not a nice little mound, I think I need to stop whirlpooling but then I might need to adjust my timing to accommodate.
>>
Anyone have a recipe for a coddled egg in the shell. Not soft boiled/steamed where you peel the egg and the yolk is runny but approaching custard stage, but the kind where you crack it and pour out a poached egg. I saw a woman in Thailand do in once but I didn't learn the secret.

there's no shame in failing, guys!

I'm 24, I haven't lived with my parents in 5 years and as far as I can remember I've never cooked a real meal.
I am a management trainee at a restaurant.
Also no gf to cook for me and not fat.
