Their online menu doesn't specify which eggs you get, and judging by the review pictures, it's "whatever the chef feels like today".
maybe one of those is a deviled egg

Two week mark on Kimchi
Jared Kimchi is fermenting well, lots of bubbles when pressed.

Kimchi in plastic tubs has developed a white mould, I suspect the issue is a combination of poor sterilization, the cabbage expanding above the liquid (no glass/stone weight) and a resulting fall in acidity of the protruding cabbage.

because there was no airtight seal on the plastic tubs I'm unsure if botulism is a concern, anything below the water line should be acidic and anything above should be exposed to air- but this is playing with fire.
The Kimchi could always be boiled into soup, but botulism can't.
This may be two liters of kimchi that I throw away.
Just toss it and try again. Cabbage is cheap, experience is valuable.

Stop trying. Steak is deceptively simple, yet remains tricky.
The most likely reason is you just don't have the right equipment, or are not willing to make the mess it takes to properly sear a steak.
YES, you must make it smoking hot, and YES you must splatter grease all over the fucking kitchen. Ideally its in a smoking hot cast iron pan, or over an intensely hot charcoal grill.
Is this something you can (or will) do just casually? Or are you trying to half ass it with some half assed method that just doesn't work?
A truly great steak is classed with those other two often talked about items that we just cant make well at home. Which of course are pizza and Asian stir fry, because we don't have a 800F oven or a jet engine style wok burner at home. Sorry but to do it right, this is mandatory.
(YOU) don't have a perfectly seasoned cast iron pan, and (YOU) are not willing to make clouds of smoke and aerosol grease inside your home. And that is why your steak keeps sucking.
you gotta let your steak rest dude that's why its bleeding.
bake ur steak
Anon, understand the following:

Salt makes meat more thermally conductive. In other words, when you apply heat, more will be transmitted to the center. Also, salt makes the surface of the steak hostile to infection from any source.

Salt and pepper your steak on all sides and let it rest for an hour or two at room temperature, covered, so no flies land on it. The covering can simply be the paper it was sold to you in. The reason people like kosher salt is because its flakes are bigger and they take more time to dissolve and tend to stay on the outer surface vs penetration. Be careful if you use fine salt, it can be very potent.

Once you have this dialed in, it’s a question of how you like your steak. I like low 130’s F but I enjoy a sear on exposed fat. So I use tongs and sear as much exposed fat as I can before cooking the steak in earnest. I like the seared fat, medium rare meat combo.

I only drink a few times a year but I just had a few beers while I was on the toilet and I'm fairly buzzed
I have 1-2 drinks with my significant other over dinner every few days. It's comfy.

I never really drank to excess consistently. I have drunk unwise amounts occasionally, however, and I realize that I really don't like feeling drunk. So I really don't anymore. That said, I can probably tolerate red wine the best. Knock back a bottle in one sitting (with dinner) and still feel okay afterwards with no hangover in the morning.

Half a 750ml bottle of bourbon gets me wasted but not so far that I can’t handle myself in public. That’s my limit.

Have you baking doing sourdough bread with your own starter? Is it worth all the trouble?
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Post recipe anon.
why are europeans so obsessed with eating dogs?
Anyone who can keep a goldfish alive for a week can make a sourdough starter. If you consider making sourdough a lot of trouble, you should never have a pet.
stupid question but since people sell starters online that supposedly been kept for like 100+ years, what if you bought a bunch really old ones and combined them all?
Should work but why would you do it.
Making your own is easy and almost free (just buy some wholegrain flour) and it will work same as 300yrs old one. Just feed it before baking a couple of times to make it active.

Yeah, but their labor costs are high.
I believe starting pay at costco is $19+/hr and decent benefits.
If they're making money, it isn't much.

Pro tip you’re not as smart as you think you are

Now here's a topic I don't see talked about. What are some of your favorite recreational drinks? Non-alcoholic or otherwise; those drinks you take your time to make and enjoy outside of the necessity of hydrating--for your own luxury and enjoyment of flavor. I'm looking to add to my repertoire of drinks and my knowledge is very lacking.

It is because the franchise has specific feigns at quality. The problem with PH is that their crusts are from frozen, and the sauce is garbage. Conversely, for example, Dominos hand-tosses their crusts (and their sauce's much less sweet, and is more flavorous).
Tell an employee to come over and pull the trigger.

red pill me on knife sharpening. what is the best bang for my buck tool I can get to keep a chef knife straight and sharp?
2 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
the redpill: you will spend time second guessing yourself when you could buy a piece of steel no matter the quality and buy some sharpening block and learn all your questions by experience
Got a stainless steel sink?
Just use that.
First, don't even fucking make an OP saying "redpill me on" anything. You want the truth? There is no truth.

You see pic related? That thing your mom would pull out of her cunt to "sharpen" her knifes? Not actually a knife sharpener. Use this shit, or those bricks like in your image when your knife is getting a little dull, and it'll scrape off the little nicks and scratched steel. Manually sharpening a knife is a dull and tedious process that you're only just barely emulating by whacking your knife a couple times against a grinding surface. Honing isn't sharpening.

Honing isn't sharpening.
I said that twice because it's important.

So what's the solution? Those water-sharpening wheelygigs where you have no surface control are out of the question. Most electric sharpeners have absolutely zero control or speed variation and just eat the blade down to make it look shiny. Then you got angle grinders which will also bite away like fucking nothing and make it look you've done shit. You could scrub your blade a billion times against the most expensive stone and still end up looking like you pitted it with a dollar store scrapper.

Professionals will use a bench grinder with varying grits and lubrication, but don't think you can fucking match that at home. Also don't think you can go to any professional sharpener and not just expect them to stick your knife set through the good old commercial "Sharp-o-matic 9001". These guys sharpen lawnmower blades and weaboo katanas alike.

So, what's the solution? Don't come to /ck/ expecting anything but people telling you you're fucking wrong. Buy a good knife, know when it needs to be sharpened, and do your own fucking research, faggot.
if you always want a knife sharp enough to shave with buy a £15 #1000 #6000 whetstone but first buy a honing rod to maintain your edge so you only have to sharpen 1 to 2 times a year

(1000 grit is good if this is your first time because you can't take too much off)
i have this one
