    It was hard to decide what to get. It was only 2 of us and we over ordered anyway. Only thing I wouldn’t get again was the fried pork roll. Great flavors but seems impossible not to over cook the pork with that preparation. The rest was amazing.

    Ordered two more of the salmon tartare cones halfway through they were so good. If I lived close I would go get 4-6 of them and the gambas for a quick lunch any day.

    I’ll have to see if I can find the exact one, but it was a random low carb recipe I found on Google. Has a dusting of crushed pork rinds for the crunch on top.

    You’re not wrong but who has ever heard of short rib pot pie with bordelaise? 3 meals was also much more reasonable for shipping than 1 pot pie.

    I’d always stayed away from tofu until I went to Viet Nam and found that it was fantastic. I still don’t seek it out but will enjoy it if it’s presented to me

    I tried cooking several years ago but found it quite overwhelming and stressful. I'm ready to give it another go and have acquired some basic cooking equipment. But now that I'm ready to actually cook something, I'm not sure where to start. I googled last night trying to find a recipe for ground beef tacos and it felt like every one of them asked me to acquire the grocery store's entire spice aisle just to make seasoning for it.

    Is there a good resource out there for beginner cooking and simple recipes?

    Pick a dish or main ingredient you want to make or use. Search for it on YouTube. Watch a few videos and pick one that seems doable for you.

    Videos will give you a good visual of how things should look through the steps.

    also, not sweat messing up. All part of getting better.

    Salt, pepper, and garlic are going to make pretty much everything taste good. Get confidence with that, add fresh herbs and additional spices from there. It’s easier to build a spice cabinet over months instead of one trip.

    Not sure where you're at but Sprouts sells a variety of "loose" spices so you don't have to buy a whole container.

    MA my advice to someone starting out is to start with “one pot” cooking (ie soups stews etc) and go from there. Lot less cleaning, hard to overcook anything, etc. If you’re starting out, season your food at the end, and taste your food before playing so you can adjust. Generally the formula will be: pan/pot + heat, add fat, add onions/garlic (maybe celery/carrots), add protein, add broth, simmer.

    Also sheet pan meals are super easy, simple, and (typically) healthy.

    Knife skills can take a little while to acquire esp if you are not super dexterous. Get a decent knife and keep it sharp, a $15 Walmart knife will be dull in no time and is liable to get yourself cut once it is.

    One of these chopper devices is worth the $30 for a beginner, I have one and it’s great, I don’t use it enough.

    Even better, spend $2 on a Frontera ground beef taco skillet pouch. Won't be full of sodium and MSG and literally requires you to stir it into browned ground beef.

    Second this. I still suck at cooking compared to most in here, but two of the first real meals I made successfully were a simple post roast and a chili.

    Generally most things that you cook low and slow tend to be very forgiving.

    This was the video I used to basically get started cooking. To "idiot proof" it even more I skipped the mash and basically just baked a potato whenever I was going to reheat some.

    Took the day to watch The Players so I got the chance to salt down some of the best strips I’ve ever seen at the market. My only regret is I rushed the photo because we were v hungry and included a slice from my wife’s steak.

    Another round with chicken on the BGE, this time over potatoes, purple carrots, and lemon. Came out damn near perfect, 385-400º for about 55 minutes on pecan wood. It's spatchcocked, so stuffing it into the pan led to a slightly uneven cook (you can see where it let loose a bit) but really great nonetheless.
