    Reverse sear

    Maybe I'm stupid, or it's the fact that I'm homeless and don't cook anymore, but what is reverse sear? Sear means to cook the outside quickly to seal in the juices, how do you cook the inside first?

    Thank you Andrew Luck!

    As my sister says, "Blowing out someone else's candle won't make yours shine brighter". Atlanta has won one game. Who did they beat?

    Hurricane Florence

    HELL YEAH!!! Won't even be a hurricane on Friday. Rain is the biggest threat now. Floyd was a rain event, but it sat over this area for about a week and rained nonstop. We might get sunshine by Saturday afternoon.
  17. Won't be no electricity. New Hanover is the only county that hasn't ordered a mandatory evac around here. Yet they are bussing people to shelters inland.

    Slow Cooker/Crockpot Recipes

    I use jelly and chili sauce. Not hot dog chili sauce, it's kinda like cocktail sauce.

    Slow Cooker/Crockpot Recipes

    Still haven't opened the box. Aldi's had them for 40 bucks, and I got the next to last one. And you can use it as just a crock pot.

    Slow Cooker/Crockpot Recipes

    I just got an InstaPot thing. Supposedly, you just add the ingredients, seal the lid, and it makes soup in no time.
