Bad pic, but this is easily one of the best things I've ever made considering how easy it is

Kind of delicious chicken burgers: (Click to show)
Step 1. 1-2 mushrooms, slice em up and fry them together with some pepperoni in a bunch of butter, put to the side
Step 2. Really simple but really good marinade that anyone can do: Water, oil, soy, salt, pepper, paprika, chili, oregano, sugar and a little bit of tomato puree.
Step 3. Put chicken breasts in plastic bag together with marinade and let it do it's thing.
Step 4. Fry the chicken up on medium-heat, when appropiate put on some cheese-slices, mushroooms on top of that, another layer of cheese and pepperoni on top of that
Step 5. Turn off heat and put a plate upside down over the pan so the cheese melts all nice and shit.
Step 6. Apply a nice thick layer of cream cheese on the bottom bun (or both, because why not) before putting your chicken-mushroom-cheese-salami creation in there.
Step 7. Enjoy! (you will, I promise)

Went to Momofuku Nishi and had the impossible burger



I'm what you'd call a flexitarian--I avoid cooking/eating meat but I cannot claim to be strict about it. I made this change in November of last year so I haven't completely forgotten the taste of meat but I definitely have reduced its place in my diet. So that's the perspective in coming from.

Overall, I'd give it a solid B. Chang loves making references to other food memories and it's pretty obvious he's recreating a Big Mac, depressing unmelted American cheese and all. The patty tastes a little weird if you take a piece of it on its own, but in-burger it does a remarkable job of recreating the experience of beef. It's definitely more burger-like than the other popular meatless options in the city (by chloe, shroom burger at shake shack, superiority burger), and it goes remarkably well with his ssam sauce (more so than the fuku sandwich). Fries were pretty good as well (comparable to Burger King)

Given that Nishi is probably going to be mobbed for a while, i don't expect it to become a regular part of my diet unless the place gets a little less crazy. OTOH the strict vegans I befriended on line were losing their shit.

I could see the beef working in tacos and chilli, and others well seasoned dishes, or shake shack/in and out style burgers but I'm not sure I could see it replacing a pub burger. I'm definitely looking forward to when the ingredient becomes liberated from Changistan and other chefs can take a crack at it (an impossible beef bolognese is my dream)
All that being said, I drunkenly got a Roquefort burger last night from the spotted pig and this doesn't even come close. Then again that's one of the burgers I've ever had, so that's possibly an unfair comparison.

If you wanna check it out, head there maybe 20-30 min before it opens and you shouldn't have a problem.

Neat. I'll check it out next weekend. In semi-related news, PES vegan select is the best vegan protein I've had.

Any recommended resources for sous vide cooking recipes? Going to try and start using it more.

Also anyone use a FoodSaver? Are the generic rolls/bags any good?

My cholesterol has been fucked (over 300) for the last 5 years so I've finally accepted that I need to skew in this direction. I consider myself a pretty good home cook but it's like starting over from nothing for me without the liberal use of animal products.
