In Topic: Does anyone grow Eggplants aka Aubergine?

Yesterday, 03:33 PM

It's not a Thai, it's more oblong. I looked again while researching Thai and found "Jade Sweet" that looks like it. It's from Australia and I don't know how it would end up here. 




Another that's similar if "Little green eggplant" but it's listed smaller and grows single stem.

I'd love to stock up on just those noodles but man the price and shipping for 2 24 packs is $98 US. I tried both US distributors and got a 404 error message. I'm sure someone in the US sells it.


Let em know if you find it any where.

I just recycled those pinchos morunos, grilled veggies, chopped onions and spinach into a pack of PrimaTaste Singapore Laska La Mian soup and Damn!!! The curry is awesome with the coconut milk and the heat was perfect. I did have to add fish and soy sauce after I tasted it.

In Topic: Free Steak Sauce...for a price...

I cooked steaks for my Mom and Sister, they both loved it but thought it needed to be a little thicker. They both don't use much salt so it was perfect for them. I thought it needed more salt and a little more heat. I also agree with DWB's statement above about needing a little of the A1 acid bite. Maybe a little balsamic vinegar or lemon juice will give it that bite. It seems like the flavor fades when used on steak and I kept adding more sauce to be able to taste it. I also think it needs to just a little thicker but not much.


I liked it overall and you definitely have a good starting point to make this a really great sauce.

TB, here's your non curry dish to try.


I was wondering where to post this cook but this fits, it's not curry but it sure tastes like it and might be considered curry.


I made Pinchos Morunos with pork and chicken, grilled green onions, squash, zucs and some chuck eye steaks in case the fam didn't like the Pinchos. 


I have a few skewers left for tacos tomorrow so I call it a bonus.


The marinade was this and I added 1 tsp of cayenne

  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon sweet Spanish paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 minced garlic cloves
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

Marinaded for 2 hours then on the coals.
