Ramen a la D3

14 April 2017 - 07:38 PM

Making all the bases for ramen tonight. 


Chasu and egg marinade. 


soy, water, mirin, sugar, sake,  ginger, garlic, scallions, shallots, jalapeno, dried hot rod serrano x maui purple, dash of liquid smoke. 




heated to boil in dutch oven, added pork tenderloin... oh wait, there's two. wtf. Ok




threw into 250 degree oven with lid cracked open. Will cook for 3 hours flipping periodically


Decided to throw the smaller of the two loins into the broth. Will do chasu two ways. The traditional cooked in broth and other braised in oven. 


Broth is 3 quarts  sodium free chicken broth, garlic, lots of ginger, scallions, shallots, white onion, carrots, celery, white pepper, dried pods, 




an hour in, too bad loin wasn't fattier. Wouldn't mind a little oil in the mouthfeel of the broth. 




almost two more hours to go on everything. then will make the eggs and marinade in the left over juices from the braised chasu. 



Member Tagging

Hey @Hotpepper just curious if tagging people was still an option in the works. I know it was brought up a year or two ago. Would be nice to be able to tag someone without having to quote them. Does this require a major forum software upgrade?

Seen this on my FB feed from rockets are cool. Indiegogo for a kitchen composter that alleges it turns table scraps into compost in just 24 hours.

Best tasting Thai Pepper?

03 January 2017 - 04:23 PM

Just curious as to what everyone's opinions are on the best tasting thai pepper. 


Gettin my grow ready for 2017 and feel I should have one or two thai in it. I grew the large orange thai for the Growdown a few years ago. It was OK. Thinking maybe one the smaller varieties may be better. 


I really liked joyners thai blend of pepper powder so i'm sure I can put some to good use. 


Just need to know what would be the best seeds to order.
