So I got my first cast iron pan (Lodge, 10.25) I seasoned by following this instruction (http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-season-a-cast-iron-skil-107614). I seasoned with grapeseed oil.
After seasoning, I tried to cook some pork and kimchi together. First I heated up the pan, then poured grapeseed oil before putting ingredients. As soon as put in the oil, smoke started appear and dark spot started to appear. But I still continued to cook because well, I was hungry.
This is what looks like after cooking and tried to clean it.
I found this post (http://www.thekitchn.com/tip-remove-rust-with-a-potato-108040) about removing rust with potato. I tried it and this is how it look:
Slightly better but still rusty. What did I exactly mass up for my brand new cast iron? Do you not need to use additional oil for a seasoned cast iron?
I am driving from NC to Austin and stopping by at New Orleans for a day.
I enjoyed the HBO show Treme set in New Orleans and wish to visit some of places that were featured in the show.
I found this article that lists
--Angelo Brocato's Italian Ice Cream Parlor
--Old New Orleans Rum
But this is just few and I would like to know what are other famous spots.
One place I'm specially interested is this very old Italian (?) restaurant, maybe out side of New Orleans. I think it was Nelson Hidalgo (Jon Seda) who dined their some shady politician character in season 2.
Also, I am taking I-85 from NC to New Orleans, if I have any good recommendations between (it's 12 hours of driving afterall), please share some with me!
I am driving back and forth from NC to Washington DC for the third time in a month and realized I haven't really tried any Virginian barbecue.
I am a Korean immigrant who's in love with American barbecue. In my senior year in college, I traveled around eastern NC to document barbecue places for a school project.
Given that my barbecue experience is mostly NC BBQ, I would like to try some Virginia style barbecue. However, I don't want travel too far away from the route, so I am looking for barbecue places near I-85 and I-95. Any recommendations?
I recently learned of the existence of this unique DC condiment and thought of it as good gift for my recent travel to DC.
I tried to find a place to purchase the sauce before I was leaving DC around Georgetown but most Chinese restaurants in the neighborhood didn't carry it (I guess the neighborhood's too fancy for that).
I ended up buying it from the nearest Chinese restaurant & bar in Arlington that was also a sushi place (always a bad sign).
To be honest, I didn't try the sauce and just left it in the fridge because I wasn't exactly thrilled of the place.
Well I have to visit DC next week again and wish to make another try. Any recommendation of good place to purchase the mambo/mumbo sauce in DC?
P.S. The receipt from the restaurant I purchased stated it as "general tso's sauce" instead of mambo sauce. Are they the same thing?
