Who else /lazy cook/ here. I pretty much only cook single pot meals in large batches so it lasts me for at least 4-5 days
>saute onions/garlic
>fry up 500-700g of some kind of meat (usually ground beef)
>pour in can of tomato sauce or curry sauce, 500g of rice/pasta and a liter of broth
>mix it up
>let it simmer for 10-15 minutes
Any good lazy recipes for lazy people like me?

How do you reheat the chicken? I'm always iffy when it comes to chicken.
I use glass containers (oven-safe) to store them, with one meal's worth of thighs in each. To reheat, I just take the lid off a container and pop into the oven on ~350 to warm it up again. Works much better than the microwave with nothing extra to wash, plus they end up nice and crispy again and evenly hot even with bone-in.
If you don't care too much about the texture of your food it's great. I got my pressure cooker off a resale app when I was renting a room out and didn't want to have to store a bunch of dishes, the cooking times are a bit exaggerated because it has to build and then release pressure but otherwise it was worth it
I wouldn't bother desu. Pressure cooking is faster but you lose that time coming to pressure and releasing. It's also annoying not to be able to check up on the food, and it homogenizes everything. I also find gadgets to be more annoying to clean than simple pots, because they're more unwieldy and you have to worry about moisture. I ended up using my IP just for beans and stock, it's useful for that but eh.

Really, I find prep time and cleaning to be the most annoying part of those big pots of sloppa, and nothing will save you from that. I'd rather just make smaller, simpler meals more often. An underrated bonus of this is that you not only get more variety, but you get better at cooking by doing it more often, which speeds everything up in the long run and makes for better food.
Forgot to mention this. If you want to be truly lazy, embrace the oven. Get a smaller sheet pan (like 1/4 sheet), line with foil. Put whatever you want to cook on the foil, you can toss and coat it there without having to dirty a bowl. Just leave it in the oven till it's done. Then take your food and throw out the foil. Literally nothing to clean and you barely have to do anything at all. As a bonus, roasted meat and veg both taste great and have good texture unless sloppa-tier mush.

I don't even like candy that much, all I'm saying is that the quality/diversity you have in the US vs what they have in France/Germany is huge.

Any variation of this is never as good as just getting some soft pretzels and all-beef hot dogs like Nathan's. I inhale that shit. It's the best food there is.
Sausage rolls are made with puff pastry.
It gets confusing as Europeans refuse to adhere to any language norms, especially Brits who like baby-talk. A biscuit can mean a: cookie, wafer, actual biscuit, and a couple forms of pastries commonly found in the US. Whether it's sweet or savory, large or small, dense or fluffy is irrelevant. And sense the brain damage is getting worse it's now a biccy.

Lemon bucatini
Eat it and maybe next time you'll learn when to stop pouring on discount lemon extract. You're obviously incapable of looking up a recipe to figure out the right amount, but maybe your brain can at least retain that ultra sour memory to kick in next time you start dousing spaghetti with citrus.
Calm down, I juiced them myself and went along with the recipe
Then eat your creation rather than waste it. It'll stick and it will reinforce in your mind the proper level of citrus when you attempt this again.

They started selling these in America and I got some but most are dented... are they safe to drink??? I don’t want botulism

for beverages? or just food
I hate retards that include shipping in amazon reviews
its meant to be a product review and Suntory did not ship the product, amazon did
If a can containing food has a small dent, but is otherwise in good shape, the food should be safe to eat. Discard deeply dented cans. A deep dent is one that you can lay your finger into. Deep dents often have sharp points. A sharp dent on either the top or side seam can damage the seam and allow bacteria to enter the can. Discard any can with a deep dent on any seam.

Favorite bed meal? Tonight, I’m having a garlic toast topped with sliced tomatoes and cheese with a side of calamari. I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite, but I do enjoy it.
It looks like you 'cooked' that in a microwave stuck on medium power level. What, you get a 'fresh' loaf of frozen bread out of the freezer and fired up your 'artisan' toaster oven? Just get fucking delivery next time you no talent, slack-jawed yokel.
People who eat non-fish non-eel seafood are disgusting.

Why does /ck/ hate Olive Garden so much? They might not be authentic but I think their food taste good.
Overpriced for how little protean the meals contain
Noisy interior
Inconsistent quality
Just about everything but the soup tastes like it was previously frozen and just nuked in the microwave, which really hurts the taste
Salads are okay
Bread sticks are hit or miss. My local place serves them undercooked half the time, and often rations the damn things, claiming they are in the oven and only giving me a single basket 3/4ths of the way through the meal.
Their breadsticks have changed entirely.
They are no longer covetous.
>They might not be authentic
Oh for fucks sake it's spaghetti and meatballs.
They got rid of the seafood portofino, my favorite dish.
I don't hate it but I can't bring myself to pay money for someone to cook me Okay pasta. literally the easiest food to cook yourself and cheap.

No way i'd eat something like this with all those people. So many germs and backwash getting in there. Enjoy your herpes.
Love this movie.
This was before the era of rampant herpes
No, it certainly was not. From the 60s up until the early 80s promiscuous unprotected sex was the norm. By the time Bill and Ted came along people had gotten used to protecting themselves from AIDS, but herpes was already everywhere.
Oh okay so who cares just have different booths for herpes and non-herpes customers, no problemo.

actually basic
He also teaches techniques in his videos, even if you don't cook the meal, you can learn from him. People give him shit, but he's at least a passionate asshole.
>Learn to actually cook instead of being dependent on recipes.
>I use recipes
You're an idiot. Ever heard the saying think smarter not harder? How do you think everyone else learns how to cook? By following the recipes and techniques of better chef's until they develop their own taste pallet.

>I always wing it and adjust things, change up ingredients
This is STUPID. NEVER do this, especially when baking. You can't just "wing" how many eggs you need or how much butter you need to add. It's important to follow recipes you use for the first time, TO THE LETTER. This teaches you what happens during the cooking process, why it was done, and what flavors it produces. I'm sure you're making your taste tailored slop, but if you want to cook for other people, you need to ensure what you're cooking is acceptable for the average taste pallet.

Hopefully, OP, doesn't take anything in your post seriously. Do not try to wing your own bread, do not try to wing your own Roux, do not try to wing your Carbonara, do not try to wing your Spaghetti. It will taste like shit, waste your time, and you'll learn nothing.

What an insightful and interesting thread, nigger. How about you delete it and save the system the trouble of auto-deleting it?

This place always hits the spot in my opinion
I've never seen this place before. But there's a place near me called simply Greek that's run by an angry fat lady and she does the food like "chipotle" style customize it yourself gyros and bowls. It's okay. A side of fries is $4 and they also have "Greek fries" for $7 and all they do is put feta and olive oil on them. Fuckin Mediterranean jews

ITT: We talk about how excellent cooking with well seasoned cast iron and carbon steel.

Stop buying that junk teflon that'll eventually start poisoning you with PFAS and PFOAS.

Anyone else here cook with this supreme non stick option?

Is Enamel good anti stick?
you are using oil to cook with right?
>cant even manageto cook eggs without them sticking
Just season it, you dont have to stick it in the oven for 1 hour, just heat it at the oven top after cleaning and oil it up
non-sticklet will never understand. It has the non-stick of cast iron while having the maneuverability of steel.
ideally they're for consecutively frying and baking. >/thread
