Your small pleasure when cooking

What is that one small thing that you love doing when cooking? Mine is when you use a griddle pan and flip the meat to get a diamond pattern. This was only a shitty flat steak, but it was fun to cook for the marks.

I also love making sauces that require reduction. When the sauce starts to thicken up and you get the aroma from it, it’s very satisfying.

    What’s cooking in the other pan on the top right?
    Also where did you get that pan? I like that it has lines to grill the chicken and make lines on the meat, which I can’t do because I dont have a BBQ or a pan like that! I want that!!!!!

      So for this, I had a griddle pan that was smoking hot and used that to get the flash sear marks. The pan to the right is a flat pan on medium hot and I used that to finish for about 1.5 mins on each side. It’s too hot on the griddle to cook it all the way through. These were very thin steaks though. If you have a decent steak of at least an inch you could do it on the griddle pan imo. I got the pan from my local tesco. It’s a shitty one though. Ideally you would want a cast iron one

    When I have to make a multi-burner meal. For some reason the added pressure of having to tend to more than one pot/pan while also doing prep gets me in the zone, and I barely even notice the time passing until it's all done. I don't do it often since I'm not a big fan of the cleanup (no dishwasher, just a sink) but it's a lot of fun.

      That’s a good one. It’s similar when you’re making a Sunday roast chicken dinner with all the sides. 3 hours goes in the blink of an eye

        Depressing. I'll just order takeout and actually enjoy my time instead of wasting it on prepping/cooking before I can even fricking eat.

      this

      also love making pan sauces or just deglazing to pull that flavor into the food. not only does it do the hard part of cleaning the steel pan, but it tastes great

    drinking as i prep
    and using the bottle to smash garlic so i dont have to fricking bother washing the goddamn knives for the 66th time
    cooking with a movie on in the back so i can precisely keep time and improvise - timers are cool but not every cut is going to be precisely 4.5lbs and depending on how drunk i am determines how high the flames will reach

    but you shouldnt get too drunkenly while cooking
    it ruins the nice after meal cigar

      Getting as drunk and stoned as I can, putting on some good music, then cooking while still getting more drunk and stoned, then eating my food while listening to my good music while also continuing to get drunk and stoned. No, I do not have a problem.

      Based and thirstypilled
      When I sloppy drunk cook I can't be fricked to read a recipe so I just eyeball everything. I made some absolute bangers over the years but I never remember what I did. I need to wear a gopro or something.

    “Grill marks” are dumb. Why would you create delicious crust on only a small portion of the steaks surface instead of the whole thing?

      It just looks pretty and is fun to do. I agree with you though

    My favorite part about cooking is that nobody else bothers or talks to me because it makes me look busy.

      For me it's the opposite. I'm just trying to do my thing on holidays and everyone is jumping in "let me stir those potatoes bro" and "I'm going to put the foil back on the chicken for you so you don't burn it" etc etc.

    Bought this non stick grill pan, it’s cast aluminium with 6 layers of stone.
    I’ll use this instead of the cast iron because I can’t stand using it anymore during the hot months.

      just know the non stick can't handle the same heat. keep it hot but not extra hot and it won't disintegrate

        I let it under medium-high on the stove for 3 minutes and then go. Of course it’s not the same, but it works.

    I'm sexually aroused by the sensation of sticking my face into a pot of fresh mint. Like, the small three-sprig hydroponically grown mint bushes you get at the grocery store. I shove my nose into that and take a deep, deep breath - immediate boner. I have no idea what synapses cross in my brain for that to happen, but it's one of those things for me. I make cold mint sauces with everything ever since I found that out. Plus, they're delicious.
