What's the secret to making a wonderful sauce of red wine?
check this sick dubs
Put shit ton of butter in pan
Add minced shallots
Wait for them to melt
Add red wine
Let the whole thing reduce
Add butter if needed

If your cooking red meat with it, you can add the meat juice in it.
Any recipe for oeufs en meurette will put you in the right direction. This one isn't bad: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2008/06/brunch-oeufs-en-meurette-eggs-bordelaise-red-wine-balthazar-recipe.html though I'd start with a finely minced mirepoix and use either a good Zin or Bordeaux. The wine is important, garbage in garbage out. One of my favorite meals.

Can they make zero calorie diet food version of snickers, burger, etc? They managed to do it for diet soda, why not with food as well?

Yep this is /ck/ alright
how fat are you? jesus christ...
You get diet snickers.
Zero calories
Exactly the same taste and texture
The only downside is it will give you burning, stinging diarrhea
Would you eat diet snickers?
OP being an abject retard aside, I was wondering this recently. The mouthfeel and taste of fat is something we experience due to its physical molecular composition. I wonder if it's possible to produce something with a similar composition to add richness to things without fat's caloric density.
I shit into a bag. No nerve endings are involved, so I don't experience any stinging. So, sure.

Cabbage was on sale at the grocery store for $0.14/lb.

I bought 10 dollars worth of cabbage.

I need to base my diet on cabbage for the foreseeable future.

What do?

Blanch it then fry it in a pan with potatoes and bacon bits.

Cabbage rolls and bigos.
Two things:

1) My local supermarket had the same sale. You didn't buy $10 worth because the sale limited you to two heads of cabbage per store card. You did not buy 71+lbs of cabbage. A large head weighs 3lbs on average. That would be over 20 heads of cabbage. No. Just no.

2) riso e cavolo/riso e verza (depending on the type of cabbage: cavolo is white/green, smooth cabbage and verza is savoy cabbage, the dark green curly type). It's basically a risotto of caramelised cabbage and garlic with lots of parmigiano. I shred the darkest outer leaves and add them at the end as a finishing touch to add colour to the dish.
OP here, I didn't read your post. Too many words that i don't understand.

Since I'm allowed to grill on the balcony in my new apartment (2. floor), I'm planning to buy a grill.

Aside from normal BBQ stuff, I'm also planning to do bigger projects like Pulled Pork.

A gas grill seems way more convenient given my situation, but I'm kinda concerned about the cost for longer projects. I did a bit of research and e.g. a Pulled Pork session could easily empty a big part of a 5L gas bottle, which would put me at around 8-10 € cost per bigger projekt. But then again, getting rid of the coal ash seems like a major hassle.

What kind of grill should I go for? Any suggestions?

>grill on the balcony in my new apartment (2. floor)

You better check on that, because I'd be surprised if they allowed charcoal grills.
I actually rented (sadly) in places that banned propane and charcoal, but allowed "electric" ROFL grills. Think George Foreman on a large scale. Horribleness.

I am convinced the only reason there are bad BBQ restaurants still in business is that there are people jonesing so bad for BBQ from deprivation of cookouts at home, they will even go to bad restaurants just to have some ribs that weren't cooked in the oven.
Well, the previous tenant used a charcoal grill, so I doubt it's going to be a problem.

Especially since a ban must be mentioned in the contract of tenancy (or house rules). I checked, nothing there.
>charcoal grills

Coal = Barbeque
Wood = Barbeque
Gas = Grill
Electric = Grill

Try craigslist and buy a kettle style charcoal grill (if they're available -- Weber makes a great kettle grill.)

I bought my 22" weber for $30 a decade ago and it's still in great shape.

If you can find them, make sure they have an ash catcher made of a less reactive metal. The ones with ash catching plates underneath are more likely to allow live coals to fall onto your balcony.

As others have suggested, a fireproof mat is a good safeguard.

Why does /ck/ hate hoppy beers?

Also beer thread

Couldnt agree more
Used to be a big fab. Dogfish head is my favorite ipa brewer.

On the other end new belgium mskes terrible ipa. Tastes like doing lines of pureed pine trees and lemon

As many itt have stated there are a lot of amateurish ipas on the market and many simply suck
hating all hoppy beer is ridiculous, though I agree that a lot of beers on the market are overhopped right now, even more are underhopped though (almost every industrial lager)
most people who say they hate hoppy beer probably only tried one, and started with the hoppiest too or just hate craft beer beard hipsters so much it's blinded their taste buds
an overly bitter IPA that lacks balance is still much better than a tasteless, shitty corporate lager
I drink beer for its magical property of making me shitfaced, not for its flavor. If I want flavor, I go for liquor

I'll never understand why anyone would get shitfaced on beer. drinking liters of beer at a time is always heavy on my stomach, beer has way more calories than any strong spirit too and cheap beer tends to taste particularily shit compared to i.e. cheap vodka with coke
it's hard to say you don't like the taste of beer too, since it's probably the single most varied alcoholic beverage in the world. ever tried a nice quadruppel or imperial stout?

What food makes you prettier?
If you kill a person and eat their remains, you will gain their beauty.
I recommend you focus on the eyes and skin, and making make some cheek-bone marrow soup.

I'm n ot sure if it works with teeth.
Srsly though. Something legal
Vegetables and plenty of water

>Daniel 1 chapter 1 verse 11-15
>11 Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,

>12 Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink.

>13 Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king's meat: and as thou seest, deal with thy servants.

>14 So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days.

>15 And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king's meat.

In other words, the king wanted Daniel to eat meat and drink wine with him and his soldiers. Daniel was like nahh... I request that you let me eat pulse [vegetables/beans] and drink water with my bros Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah instead. He challenged the king to let him do this for like 10 days. And after that, the result was that Daniel and his 3 bros had a fairer and more beautiful appearance, and they ended up smarter than before.

>green coffee beans

irrelevant. Coffee beans are zapped at 475f. Do you distrust roasted vegetables, too? All of the vegetables and fruits in your fridge harbor fungi - GASP - and your dreaded mycotoxins too. And cyanotoxins from the soil they were grown in. And, in the case of the edible sporocarps we tend to consume, the literal shit they were grown in! They're all around us, monkey. Do you never go outside? Do you never eat anything? Do you never drink water? Then you've ingested mycotoxins. Be prepared to cut a lot more shit from your diet if you're afraid, moron, because this will blow your fucking mind.
PS: Source for the cyanotoxin claim. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/256467841_Cyanobacterial_toxins_Modes_of_actions_fate_in_aquatic_and_soil_ecosystems_phytotoxicity_and_bioaccumulation_in_agricultural_crops

>The occurrence of harmful cyanobacterial blooms in surface waters is often accompanied by the production of a variety of cyanotoxins. These toxins are designed to target in humans and animals specific organs on which they act: hepatotoxins (liver), neurotoxins (nervous system), cytotoxic alkaloids, and dermatotoxins (skin), but they often have important side effects too. When introduced into the soil ecosystem by spray irrigation of crops they may affect the same molecular pathways in plants having identical or similar target organs, tissues, cells or biomolecules. There are also several indications that terrestrial plants, including food crop plants, can bioaccumulate cyanotoxins and present, therefore, potential health hazards for human and animals.

You're not safe if you eat the animals that consume these crops either. In fact, you're worse off! Biomagnification, nigger. They're all around you. Can't eat fish, especially can't eat shellfish due to the fact that dinoflagellates and marine algae produce toxins too!

You're fucked! Might as well starve to avoid your muh toxins, because they are all around you and there is nothing you can do about it. Not to mention the heavy metals, whatever shit they absorb from the local air pollution, the dioxins...
Coffee hits me like speed,

>Coffee beans are zapped at 475f
>Retards mixing very basic facts.
If you are zapping coffee beans with such high temperature of 475F than you are burning charring coffee creating dark roast and dark roasted charred "dead coffee beans" are scientifically proven
to cause cancer, same as charred burnt bread or meat or any other food. You idiots.

Coffee 101 » Coffee Roasts from Light to Dark.

Dark roasted coffees are dark brown in color, like chocolate, or sometimes almost black.
They have a sheen of oil on the surface, which is usually evident in the cup when the dark roast coffee is brewed.
The coffee’s origin flavors are eclipsed by the flavors of the roasting process.
The coffee will generally have a bitter and smoky or even burnt taste. The amount of caffeine is substantially decreased.

How do I order a Slurpee at 7-Eleven?
Thanks in advance

You pay and then take the empty cup home and hang yourself
Point a gun at the cashier and tell the cashier what you want. They'll give it to you.
my 711 shut down a year ago

I miss slurpees so bad
Ask the nice man at the counter.

You can wait until late night or early morning if you're nervous; they'll be more sleepy and there will be fewer customers. Slurpees should be an enjoyable and relaxing experience!

Keep an eye out for any available cups as you enter, so you can make a quicker and more casual decision if or when he asks you what size you would like.

Mint leaves most likely.

None of those flavoured 'teas' are made with tea.
Its an infograph made for upvotes on reddit, I'm into the tea hobby but I hate the tea subreddit with a passion. Its also easier to find decent quality coffee than tea in most places, if you're drinking bagged tea you shouldnt even bother with it, its trash, even the shittiest coffee is probably better quality.

Easy as fuck to make. I eat avocados for breakfast three days a week.

Mix it up with some quinoa or brown rice, some chopped red onion, chopped peppers, cilantro, lime juice and chipotle spice mix with a dash of olive oil to combine makes a nice cold lunch
That pic is almost certainly faked. The knife even appears to be serrated, so that really makes it implausible.
I just eat it with chips. I don't even really see it as necessary with meats like in a burrito or on a taco.
Still could be faked, but this is a common occurrence with idiots messing up cutting avocados. I nearly did it when I first cut an avocado, b/c I didn't expect the softness.
I got extremely high once and ate both homemade guacamole and premade kind. No comparison. Premade tastes all fucked up and I can't eat it now
