A Better Big Mac

For those who care the Maggi seasoning sauce is currently being made in CHINA by Nestle! (says so right on the bottle) I was thinking if it was just for color Id use some Kitchen Bouquet but from the comments its a yeast compound were looking for so I guess I'll have to buy some Marmite.

Cajun Burgers With Spicy Remoulade

Anyone make these yet? They sound & look GREAT but I may have a hard time finding a decent Andouille here, not sure how the Aidells Andouille would perform in this.

Japanese Potato Salad With Cucumbers, Carrots, and Red Onion

@toreadorable &GossipGirl: Get some Colemans mustard in a jar or mix up the powdered Colemans - NOT regular mustard! IMNSHO....

The Baking Steel Griddle Has Arrived

@Dylan's Alias: I use an older anodized aluminum griddle quite often and just like your BBQ grill you would need to learn its characteristics for hot and cold spots....

Order a Sloppy Joe in Jersey and You Won't Find Ground Beef

@squo11: Nope, youre the only one:-) Just kidding - this obviously isnt something one would want to eat every day if they cared about being healthy but the sandwich does have cabbage (veg) & its rye bread. You can find obscene food in many parts of the world but things like this make America America!

The Baking Steel Griddle Has Arrived

UPDATE - I guess I should have paid closer attention to their website ITS MADE IN THE USA! YEAH:-)

The Baking Steel Griddle Has Arrived

Heres the million dollar question that as of 90 comments nobody has bothered to ask (lest I missed it!). What country is this made in? For the $ I sure hope it aint China!

Order a Sloppy Joe in Jersey and You Won't Find Ground Beef

Sorry but the meats on these sandwiches look sub par - I.E Subway quality, YUK!

Stir-Fried Lo Mein With Beef and Broccoli

@Vishnu: Yes peanut oil will be perfectly fine & in my opinion better for you, I use it in wok cooking all the time with great results:-)

Pork and Shrimp Siu Mai (Steamed Chinese Dumplings)

@iamchaossthought: Dry Sherry is a great substitute:-)

The Best Japanese Pork and Cabbage Dumplings (Gyoza)

What could one do if their rural store doesnt carry dumpling wrappers? I dont think won ton wrappers would work would they?

Hanger Steak With Bagna Cauda Pan Sauce

This sounds interesting but is it going to be to much anchovy since I have non adventurous eaters in the house?

Tender and Beefy Chicken Fried Steak

@dzs501111: Try Peanut oil & try to not heat the oil to the point of smoking - use a thermometer in the dutch oven to be sure the oil is at the right temperature and you should avoid any issues.

Spinach and Goat Cheese Stuffed Pork Chops

Anyone try these with cream cheese? Its what I have on hand at the moment...

Tender and Juicy Slow-Cooker Meatballs

@mrskia701: No, just the last 30 minutes...

The Best Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

These are simply outstanding!

Tender and Juicy Slow-Cooker Meatballs

Any reason why were not browning the meatballs on both sides?

Cook the Book: Slow, Low Oven Ribs

Whats "tomato relish"? Also the pre-heat of the oven is mis-placed - shouldnt be before the marinade time....

The Best Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

@alumiere: What about flour torts?

The $29 Thermopop Digital Thermometer Measures Up

The McEverything, a Tower of Every McDonald's Sandwich

Sticking with my original assessment - these exploits are a waste, period!

The $29 Thermopop Digital Thermometer Measures Up

@joy see: Thank you for the valuable information! Saved me time in looking to see where it was made:-)

The McEverything, a Tower of Every McDonald's Sandwich

@Dom Inoh: Its retarded plain & simple & maybe you have time in your vapid life to study what this idiot did with his creation of crappy food but I dont - more power to you!

How to Export Your Recipe Box When Ziplist Shuts Down

@mashingkeys: ZipList was a third party which apparently went "belly-up". Im sure if the folks at SeriousEats had their wish ZipList wouldnt be closing its doors. That said SeriousEats made a serious mistake by relying on a third party to host the recipe box service. There are plenty of alternatives just dont put your full faith they wont go away either, think about people who bought a Saturn, Pontiac or other automobile then GM decided to shutter those brands leaving customers "out in the cold" - same concept.

@La Maison Sacre11: No prob - I think the e-mail is how they linked the ZipList info with the SeriousEats account.

Serious Entertaining: Grilled Cheese Roll-Ups for a Crowd

I'm not going to try to pretend to take credit for this genius idea—I saw it late the other night on thefoodporn sub-Reddit and immediately knew that I'd have to make it for lunch the next day. The idea is that when you've got a few hungry mouths to feed, rather than forming a grilled cheese sandwiches in the standard shape, you instead roll the cheese up into the bread jelly roll-style before gently frying them in butter. You end up with an easy-to-pick-up, eminently dippable snack that's more fun, easier to share, and just as tasty as the more traditional version. More
