Re: Hasegawa Wood Core Soft Polyethylene vs Hasegawa Wood Core Soft Rubber Cutting Board

I have had my Haseagwa rubber board for over a year and I seem to remember that the manual says is is dishwasher safe. Mine has gone through numerous cycles complete with heated dry and it is fine. Just my 2 cents. Ooh, that's very good to know. I'll have to confirm this and make sure it fits in my...

Re: Thermapen MK4 $69 - White only

Could anyone tell me what (if any) downsides there would be to getting the thermopop (which doesn't fold up and is a bit cheaper) instead of the thermapen? I'm talking about one of these: https://www.thermoworks.com/ThermoPop?quantity=1&color=8 Does it read as fast as their other units? If so, ...

Re: What did you cook today?

Also, deep/shallow frying in a round bottom wok = game changer. I never used to use this technique because I hate cleaning up so much oil. With the round bottom you can use so much less. Definitely. I have to keep this in mind for sure. It opens the door to a lot of otherwise-impractical dishes. Qu...

Re: What did you cook today?

And at that point I then realised that I had some other things that I could use and get RID of to make it a real burger. For the greens, I used some bok choy leaves. For a bit of kick, I used the half used up white onion I had. And then for the bun, I toasted a plain bagel I needed to use. And so, ...

Re: Hasegawa Wood Core Soft Polyethylene vs Hasegawa Wood Core Soft Rubber Cutting Board

Basically we are both maybe asking the same question lol.. what is the softest board you can go with and still not be impeded by motion. I definitely dont know the answer to it, but if I had to take a wild wild wild guess maybe would say that option is with a wooden board rather than synthetic vers...

My mind was blown when I realised that 'sushi grade' salmon is basically a synonym for 'frozen but otherwise basically the same as any farm raised salmon you can buy, just more expensive'. LOL - reminds me of a line a friend came up with recently saying that bone broth was basically just regular br...

Charcoal-grilled pork bulgogi, spicy & sweet roasted eggplant and tender-crisp garlicky green beans. That looks really really great Ronnie. You're making me so excited to have a garden in our next house, where the grill can be on all year round. My South Korean mother in law makes me bulgogi an...

Re: Hasegawa Wood Core Soft Polyethylene vs Hasegawa Wood Core Soft Rubber Cutting Board

I have the Hasegawa Wood Core Soft Poly board and I like it but I agree that it feels really hard. And I'm definitely curious about their Wood Core Soft Rubber Cutting Board but if it's anything like the Hi-Soft board, I don't think I'd like it. I just digressed about this on the Cooking thread the ...

With the temps rising (yay!) and my unlimited outdoor food storage literally melting away, I had some pork shoulder I needed to use up.

Oh, those do look cool but in my hands, that's just an injury waiting to happen. The only question is whether it would be a finger, a toe or a foot. :lol:

Not sure if this is what inspired Mark. He is, after all, a trendsetter but there's nice piece, with 20 recipes, at NYT's website . . .

Re: What did you cook today?

Was hoping for still-frozen scallops in my WF delivery but ended up with previously frozen, which meant I really needed to use them today. First up, a quick 2-hour marinade in 1 part hatcho miso, 1 part red miso and 1 part sake . . . https://www.ronniesuburban.com/photos/food/homecooking/scallops/ha...

Re: What did you cook today?

Great looking dish Ronnie. When I first started using a wok I was kind of...meh...but the more you use it the more addicting it gets. Before you know it you'll be using it more than you eat chicken thighs! :D LOL, that's a pretty steep threshold! I've certainly found a wok that I'm comfortable with...
