Easy Stir-Fried Pork With String Beans

Sounds great! I make a similar stir fry now with chicken and I've also used pork but this marinade sounds like it will perform better:-)

Equipment: How to Buy, Use, and Care for a Meat Grinder

@Mark Viduk: The 3 types on the blog are the same with the exception of Kenji's mention of the stand mixer option (which I use). The blog talks about commercial grinders which would be built for use in a business such as a restaurant or perhaps a meat market and while awesome would probably be overkill for the average home user.

Taste Test: We Try Every SodaStream Soda Syrup Flavor

Can we take the politics out folks, its a food review which I for one appreciate & am here for! There are PLENTY of sites to go to to spout your political views on. I have refrained from spouting mine in the past and present & if I can refrain Im sure you guys can as well:-)

Ultra-Smashed Cheeseburgers

That burger is a thing of beauty Kenji!

Carne Adovada (New Mexico-style Pork with Red Chilies)

@Crevice: Its a recipe, there are many many versions of many so called "classics" out there and people put their own spin on them. I have made Carne Adovada the "traditional" way & I will try this recipe as well and then decide based on taste which I prefer to make in the future (probably will like both!). Lets lighten up folks:-)

McDonald's Testing Bacon Clubhouse in Michigan

@colonelcash: A cold beer would better explain the bacon tongue:-)

Lavender, Lemon, and Honey Spatchcocked Roast Chicken

@PistachioLee: Youre right, I forgot that chicken was hormone free and also our pork is. I was trying to illustrate was that food in Europe is generally more wholesome then in the US which is correct (no GMO corn for example).

Lavender, Lemon, and Honey Spatchcocked Roast Chicken

@Kerry Saretsky: Your chickens are probably a nice wholesome variety, not some hormone and antibiotic filled frankenfood type!

McDonald's Testing Bacon Clubhouse in Michigan

@smackdaddies: I agree, the not to subliminal tongue in the glamour shot is bizzare to say the least!

Crispy Fried Chickpea Cake and Slaw Sandwiches

@J. Kenji López-Alt: Cool, probably a good life choice. I look forward to more of your great recipes/articles both meat related & non:-)

Crispy Fried Chickpea Cake and Slaw Sandwiches

Say Kenji, did you &/or your wife switch to a vegan diet or are you just experimenting and expanding your skills? Curious...

Fast Food-Style Burgers Worth the Drive at Atomic Burger at Atomic Burger in Metairie, LA

Great char on those patties!

Steak 'n Shake Introduces a Pepperoni Pizza Steakburger

This offering just sounds (and even in the glamor shot) looks gross to me. I'll stick with their regular burger offering thanks.

Photo (and Videos) of the Day: 'Scary' Ronald McDonald From 1963

McD's should have kept quiet. By responding they make this an issue where on didnt exist as everyone realizes these are old ads from a different time.

Slow Cooker Italian Sausage Meatballs With Chianti Sauce and Fusilli

Thanks Jennifer, I'll try em:-)

Polish Cabbage, Potato, and Bacon Casserole

@jumbuck11: It would be 1/2 cream & 1/2 milk - Im sure you could mix the 2 at home & be just fine:-)

There's a Spanish Chain Called Taste of America and This is What They Sell

Hmmm - Where can one find this Heinz "Fiery" ketchup in America? Is it any good?

Grilled: Tom McKern of Zombie Burger in Des Moines, IA

Great interview! That B-Bops looks like an excellent fast food style burger:-)

We Try the New Bacon Insider and Brioche Bun from Jack in the Box

Jack does a decent job as far as fast food goes. That patty actually LOOKS like meat compared to the others in this category!

Petition for McDonald's to Add a Healthy, Meatless Item Reaches 90,000+ Signatures

McD's isnt going to change their business model for this petition even if the had several million signatures:-)

Slow Cooker Italian Sausage Meatballs With Chianti Sauce and Fusilli

@CuriousAppetite: I think I'd start it out on high then switch to low after an hour myself.

@Served: I think browning the balls first will aid in keeping them together as well as adding needed color.

Slow Cooker Italian Sausage Meatballs With Chianti Sauce and Fusilli

I think I'll brown the meatballs before putting them in so they have some color when done. Curious about the oats instead of breadcrumbs....

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
