I make them all the time(meat pies)-- called Emapanadas around my house.

Hot sauce is the greatest "invention" ever.

Acceptible? Hell yeah!

I use food in general as an excuse to eat hot sauce and horseradish/wasabi.

I love all types of sushi, but I have to confess that I likely couldn't tell any of the types apart because of all the wasabi I put on it.

As a dedicated follower of heat in all its forms, one of the most unusual and best hot sauces I have ever had is Brother Bru-Bru's African Hot Sauce. It is outstanding on just about any roast or grilled meat...a little too overpowering for most veggies.

C'mon man, If I can find it on Google in two seconds, why waste the effort to even type that question? If all of lifes questions could be boiled down to a google search (which may be coming in the near future), why would I even need to talk to people around here?

Sorry man. Whenever I tell someone about a website they always want me to email them a link, and I'm like no, just google it. Its that simple. Apparently some people have no faith in the power of google.


On a side note, I'm really pissed off. I drove all over town (5 grocery stores) looking for Kimchi, and can't find it anywhere.

I'd order it online, but I don't want it in a can, and I'm afraid that if I get it in a jar that it might blow up during shipping. Apparently my only other option is to drive all the way to capital city.

Bah!

yeck-- canned Kimchi---oh I think that breaks at least one law of physics---
since it is now July 3rd--- did you find any(edible and not in a tin yet?)

I might have nightmares over that one.

Texas Pete is my staple hot sauce. Love in on almost anything. (Lucky Charms--not so much).


If you are interested in making your own quick topping, Try this:

1/4 cup Olive Oil (Extra Virgin is yummiest :mrgreen: )
2-3 tbls crushed dried red peppers OR 5-6 whole red dried peppers

Heat oil on medium heat until oil is hot (stick finger in to test heat :twisted: ) and when its hot enough (the skin on your finger melts off) toss in the peppers.
Saute until the red color of the peppers has a slight brown. I like my peppers burnt, but when I make this for other people I don't burn them. They are yummy when black, if you (like me) are into that sort of thing (burnt food).

Its a great topping for pasta, pizza, etc.

**DISCLAIMER: Totally kidding about using your finder as a thermometer. Please don't do that. I will sprinkle a little water in my hands and flick the H20 on the oil. If the pan sizzles, its just right. If the oil spits and bubbles, its wayyy too hot. If it does nothing, wait your impatient ass.**
