The new national anthem
Maybe you could learn to, you know, cook.

Here's a fajitas recipe I can commend to you:

2 lb. flank steak
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 oz. gin
clove of garlic, diced

Combine all ingredients in a 1 gallon plastic bag. Marinate the meat overnight in the fridge.

Next day:

Flip the marinating meat over first thing in the morning.
Buy red and orange peppers, and a Vidalia onion.

At dinner time:

Get the grill ready. Put the meat to cook on a hot grill - 400 degrees or hotter. KEEP THE MARINADE. Cook 6 minutes a side. Then take it off the grill and LET IT SET for 10 minutes. While the meat is setting . . .

Slice the peppers, and take out the seeds. Slice the onion. Bring the marinade to a boil for 5 minutes, then put the pepper and onion slices in the hot marinade. Bring back to a boil, then let it simmer until the peppers and onions are tender.

Slice the flank steak at an angle, against the grain and in thin strips. (This will take a while.) Then slice it again, lengthwise. (This too will take a while.)

Wrap the tortillas in a moistened paper towel and heat in the microwave. When heated, remove the tortillas.

Wrap the sliced meat, peppers and onions in the tortillas, and eat. Serve with ice cold Modelo and/or mojitos.

Good recipe although grill the veggies as well and add cilantro and crushed red papper to the maridade or add jalpenos to the veggies. Make pico to add in the wrap.

Drink two Modelos during grilling.

So . . . grilling the veggies, is that before or after boiling them in the marinade?

If you just grill them you'd lose the flavor of the marinade in them.

Can you tell me where to find a replacement for my Cadillac ETS instrument panel?

Thanks in advance.

Cast iron on the grill to the rescue

Do NOT boil your veggies. You want some texture not mush.

Put them in the marinade with the meat and add some back when you grill the veggies either in a basket, on foil or in the cast iron as was mentioned.

Oh . . . we prefer to boil them to ensure that any bacteria on the meat is killed. Salmonella and all that . . . .

Air fryer
I didn't like my air fryer at first until I figured out the spray some oil on the food tip (Target kitchen gadget section, Misto cooking oil sprayer).

Ho Lee She Ot!

Food came out crispy, juicy and cooked thoroughly and evenly.

Sam's Club southern fried chicken sandwiches (10 for $14) is Chik FiL A level (especially when you use a different store brand bun).

His whole state boils peanuts.
At gas stations and stop-n-rob marts and err’where.

And they cheat at voting too.
It's a good ol boy dominated legislature. Currently it's virtually all Republican. What do you expect?

And what's wrong with boiled peanuts? Other than the oil . . . .

Pretty simple as it's just two pieces (both dishwasher safe).

The pieces are the bowl and there's a tray thing that goes in the bowl that lifts the food a bit so air can circulate.

It's easier and faster than the oven but slower than a microwave. I'd say average cook time for frozen foods is 16-20 minutes.

But seriously, after I figured out that pre-oil trick. It's very, very close to deep fried quality.

Since my wife and I are apartment-dwelling empty-nesters (no grills), we bought one of these:

At first, we (she) weren't sure we (she) liked it, but after a while, we (she) learned to use it, and I bet we (she) cook in it at least 3 times a week. We (she) are getting pretty good at it. Our (her) best meat is salmon.

What about fish smell inside? I love salmon but grill it outside. Winter coming on I am looking at these so info is good. Cleanup is usually my downfall, I cook, eat and am done for night then find the mess

That looks beyond my capacity.

Ha ha I'm a sucker for things like this. I've had deep fryers, George Foreman's, pizzazz's, sandwich makers, panini presses, griddles, etc.

Currently my go tos are my pizza oven (I bought a restaurant quality pizza oven), air fryer, rice cooker, two cast iron pans (for stovetop grilling), a wok (when I want Tommyhanna) and a basic set of Teflon pans.

I can pretty much replicate all my favorite restaurant foods with that.

I haven't noticed, but I'm pretty much a dirty caveman, but my wife hasn't complained about fish smell either, and she has a nose like a basset hound (not looks, but efficiency).
I do miss my grill on the deck.

Oh no just an electric one that you find in bars and pubs.

It's also good for hogies, cookies and stuff like frozen aps but the air fryer has taken that job away from the pizza oven.

Basically you get the heating element on both sides much closer to the food than a traditional oven.
I have a friend that builds woodfire ones. Looks like a lot of work to cook a pizza even after built. Air fryer sounds like a good idea. I have tried too may other new hot appliances though so have been wondering. Don't feel like changing my failing built in oven or its element . Wings are a big one for me in winter . Hearing experience vs infomercials is a lot better.

I have a sister who uses hers a lot, but I got one and it just didn't turn out well. I guess I'm too impatient to learn how to use it properly. The commercials sure make them look good, though.
