Tim Cook takes Apple down the dark road of censorship submitted by deleted to technology

Wait... what??? Why? It's not the flag that's hurting people... this is like a move China or North Korea would make. Banning a flag is just over the top and rather impossible.

So, I got the money, i have some time, i just have no idea how. submitted by fbholyclock to cooking

Start with a "base" sauce that you can use, and experiment with stir fries. You can buy yourself a rice cooker to cook rice with, it will pay for itself a hundred times over. Rice cookers practically never die and rice goes great with most foods.

Here's a basic stir fry sauce recipe, it's slightly spicy:

  • 2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 inch piece of ginger (finely chopped)
  • 2 dried small red chillies (finely chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • rice wine vinegar (swap with white wine vinegar if you don't have rice wine vinegar)
  • shoaxing cooking wine (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 tsp sesame oil (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch + 1 tablespoon cold water mixed together. This is known as a corn starch slurry.

It's a LOT of ingredients, appreciated, but almost all these ingredients can become staples in your pantry, and don't need to be bought fresh. garlic and ginger can be stored for weeks if not months. Everything else will keep in your pantry for 1-2 years, by which time you'll have easily finished them.

How to make it:

  1. Mix together the salt, pepper, rice wine vinegar, cooking wine, sugar, soy sauce, 2 tablespoons water.
  2. Start the gas to a medium heat, add your 2 tablespoons of oil to a large saucepan or a wok.
  3. Check the oil is hot and ready to use by dripping in a few drops of water. If the water sizzles, your oil is hot. If you're using an open flame gas, this usually happens in around 10 seconds.
  4. Once the oil is ready, add in your garlic, ginger and chillies. Fry for 10-15 seconds until fragrant, and then add in the mixture from step 1.
  5. Turn up the heat higher so the oil gets hot and lets things fry fast. Low heat will make things stick and cook to slowly... they'll get mushy. 6...... now add whatever you want to stir fry. Could be all kinds of vegetables, chicken, beef, pork, mushrooms, tofu, whatever. Anything goes! Just chop into bitesized pieces and add them in. Different things cook at different times. General rule of thumb: hard things like carrots will take longer to cook. Cut them into smaller pieces to speed up the cooking time! KEEP STIRRING. It's called a STIR fry for a reason! Stirring stops things sticking, and lets all your food get evenly coated in sauce and evenly cooked.
  6. When everything is almost done, add in your corn starch slurry.
  7. Lower heat, stir, and you'll see the sauce thicken up.
  8. Add optional sesame oil for fragrance and finish. Done!

You now have an amazing stir fry that will get everyone jealous. It's the details that add to the authenticity and amazing flavour, but you can relax on the details and still have a very very good meal.

Hey there!

Easy Meals Issue #1 - Spaghetti submitted by slyguy42o to cookingforbeginners

I find spaghetti sauce is usually too sweet, so I add in a little extra salt and some chilli powder.
