yesterday was potstickers (TJ's) with Asian slaw (homemade), garlic soy dipping sauce
Tried those Trader Joe's potstickers once and was a major fail. Nuked them in a rush which was obviously not the preferred method. Just sautÃ© them in some oil/ butter? Slaw looks awesome.
yea put them in a real hot pan to get the crisp bottom then hit them with steam at the end. I eat the veg ones, I dont eat meat. they are ok but get old fast for me if I have them too often
Trader joes pot stickers? Fail.
So much sodium in the garlic soy.
Looks good tho.
I've found a better way to do them, defrost them, then put them in a pan with about an inch of water and a couple tablespoons of oil. Cover and bring to a heavy simmer, once the water evaporates, then oil browns the potstickers
She's absolutely right.
sounds ok but I dont see it as better, especially because you add a defrost step.
you should address your leechy Teflon pan before you bash sodiums
I made a caramelized onion-broccoli pureed soup out of these yesterday but didnt take any pictures of the finished soup, it came out good though
I did get a couple pics of the onions caramelizing, I cooked down on super low for ~4 hours. nothing added to them but a pinch of salt (some people add sugar to caramelized onions )
yours are burned on the bottom, thus over cooked, all you have to do in throw them in the fridge the night before you cook them, it's really not a step
those onions are not caramelized, these are
I like them that way, I am in complete control of the cooking process. the pic makes it look more black than it was
note the word I used, caramelizing
sounds like a step to me
Looks like a great dinner.
Fuck sodium counts.
Oooo, that soup sounds good. And I'm with you, caramelized onions take forever, but it's worth it. And people that add sugar should be locked up. I do my onions in a much wider pan than yours, and don't layer them much, so they take about an hour or hour and a half, on very low with butter and salt.
I do need some new pots. I want to move to all stainless. I'm afraid my wife will ruin them tho.
