I need to remember how to make fried rice.

Boil rice. Add cooked rice to really hot wok/pan with a splash of some variety of oil or fat. Add other tasty stuff. Season with whatever you like. Toss/stir until done.

Now that I've given you the basics, I want to see what you create. Be sure to post your recipe so I can add it to the list!

how about...

Salties breakfast casserole!

what you'll need
6 eggs
half an onion
1 green pepper
1/2 pound of bacon (or maybe a full pound if you like)
2 potatoes
1 cup chopped mushrooms
as much cheese as you think you can handle

Chop the bacon into small bits about the size of your thumbnail and fry it. once thats done, set it aside. chop up the onion and green pepper and cook them in the bacon grease (or dump out the grease and use 1/6th a stick of butter), starting the green pepper about two minutes before adding the onion. once the onion and green pepper are just about finished, add the chopped mushrooms. it should all finish cooking after about 1 minute or so. set all that aside. chop the potatoes into tiny pieces or, if you have a tool to do so, shred them. add them to the pan with a bit out oil (or the bacon grease if you saved it) and cook them until they are just starting to brown at which point you should add all the vegetables and mix them in thoroughly. once the potatoes have browned a bit, flip them and add your 6 eggs. the eggs can either be beaten to break the yolks (the best way) or added as they are yolk whole (if your into that sort of thing.) put a lid over the pan and let it sit until the eggs are cooked all the way through. add the cheese and bacon to the top and allow the cheese to melt, then serve hot.

It makes a lot of food, so adjust the recipe as needed or cook it when you have company.

Let me add my own!

Coleslaw and Friend's REALLY GROSS and PAINFUL Ramen pizza!
With activities!

You will need the following ingredients:

One packet of Shrimp flavored ramen noodles
One Tostinos Party Pizza
Cheddar cheese
your own tears

Steps
Cook the party pizza, follow directions on box.

When the pizza is about done, prepare the noodles, follow directions on packet if you really don't know how to cook them.

When the noodles are done, pour them into a bowl, mix the flavoring with them, and mix them around.

Put cheese on top of the pizza, followed by the noodles. The cheese should melt due to the hot noodles + pizza.

Have everyone take a small slice, complain about how shitty it is, and claim the rest as your own. Proceed to consume the entire thing, then use the plastic plate the pizza was on as a platform for firecrackers. Afterwards, do really fucking dumb shit with the firecrackers, giving yourselves first degree burns.

If I could figure out how to keep the grease down, this would have been perfect... It came out a tad undercooked too sadly. I tried making Calzones.

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B67YVSyIgAI_2H6.jpg:large)

Took a bag of Mozzarella Cheese, A can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, Some black olives, and some pepperoni, unrolled the thing of crescent rolls, trying to keep em together (and failing, there were two others half the size of the one pictured above) sprinkled some cheese in it, layered the pepperoni on top, then cut up some olives and threw those in. Rolled em up, sprinkled some cheese ontop, ripped up some more pepperoni and threw that on top, then more cheese. Cooked it for 15 minutes, but probably could have stood for another two minutes or so to be fully cooked.

If anyone has any ideas on how to reduce the grease please tell me. XD You can see some of it on the tin foil from one of the smaller ones still...

I'd put it on a wire rack in a pan, so that anything that cooks out of it drips off and it's not sitting right in it.

If you format your recipe to be a bit more easily-readable I'll add it to the compilation.

And that still looks quite tasty!

I tried that once, it melted into mom's cookie rack and she was about ready to kill me... ...though come to think of it there are pizza pan things at work with holes in them, should work fine...

As for the taste, it tasted okay, I've done better, unfortunately I was also sick for the better part of ten hours after eating that. XD

As for formating, my methods for cooking are almost disturbingly similar to the CDDA recipe system.. XD But... I will try:

You will need:
Paper Can of uncooked Crescent Rolls (1)
Plastic Bag of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (4) (I think I bought a pound?)
Plastic Bag of Pepperoni (4) (I didn't use all of it)
Tin Can of Black Olives (1)

Unroll the crescent rolls as best you can without separating them, it'll work still if you do, it just gets harder. Spread the cheese on top of your unrolled dough to your liking, I used the whole damn bag. Put pepperoni on top of the cheese as desired, chop the olives up to your liking and put them on top of the pepperoni then roll up the crescent roll stuff again. Put some cheese on top of that roll, then some ripped up pepperoni, then more cheese.

Cheese.

Throw that in the oven at 350 F for about 17 minutes, check on it after awhile, the grease is your biggest problem.

Post by: Vulnus on January 11, 2015, 03:07:08 AM
No picture, but something I like
Fried Noodles with egg

things you need
cooked pasta (no particular amount)
1 or more eggs, depends on amount of pasta
crushed red pepper flakes
salt and pepper
Butter (any kind, though I've only ever done to this with regular butter, results may vary)

Put butter in hot frying pan and allow it to melt. Add red pepper flakes to melted butter and then put noodles in pan.
Cook until butter is mostly gone and then add eggs. Cook until the egg is completely done.
Put into a bowl or on a plate, season with salt and pepper to taste.

First time trying to explain how to cook something, so apologies if this is terrible.

Not really a recipe, more just speedmode breakfast:

Ingredients: a microwave safe bowl, a fork, butter or margarine, an egg.

butter the bowl, crack in egg, whisk to make egg mixed.

Microwave for a minute, receive puck-shaped egg floppie that fits on sandwiches and is literally the fastest protein-inclusive breakfast I know. If you don't whisk the egg first sometimes they kerplode.

This item can be used to create: Awesome sandwiches, home-made mcmuffins, deluxe oatmeal, goes in soups, goes in wraps, goes in your mouth, it is versatile egg. Frying it was too slow.

Yaaaay. I only included it because most folks I know would be afraid to put anything egg in the microwave lest it cause a nuclear explosion (only applies to uncracked eggs). If it counts in your eyes, I'm happy to add to the list.

Post by: Ferodaktyl on January 31, 2015, 02:41:20 PM
had some cottage cheese left from some time ago, so i made some cheese pancakes. It's really simple :

mix the cheese with eggs (1 egg for 200g approx), add vanilla sugar, 1 teaspoon of cooking bicarbonate and flour until it solidifies so it can be shaped. i like to make donut shapes with round smaller pieces to cover them. Fry it covered in oil, serve with cream and jam, or honey, or whatever topping you like. Might add a picture or two when they're ready. Or not.

Oh, leave the mix in the freezer for 1 hour or so before frying.

grease problems
you should use silicone parchment paper rather than tinfoil, as parchment paper doesn't stick to food, and will absorb some of the grease.  I think that kind of dough is naturally buttery, but you can try to heat up to pepperoni beforehand to get some of the grease out.

I'm not 100% sure but I think a lot of the problems are from using tinfoil on the bottom, as it will cause the grease to collect in pools rather than spread out.

At the stadium and the corn chips don't come with salsa (and, like KA101, you despise cheese dip)?

Ketchup & relish can combine fairly effectively to emulate salsa.  Bit expensive to try at home, though.

Another good tuna thing is to use ranch instead of mayo. Its not quite as good, but in a pinch.

Rivet's Guacamole

Ingredients:
1 large avocado
1 small tomato, ideally a roma
1/4 of an onion, finely diced
1 tbsp sour cream
1 tsp lime juice
1/2 tsp fresh diced garlic or a pinch of dried garlic
1 finely diced jalapeno pepper or a pinch or two of cayenne pepper
pinch of finely minced cilantro
salt, to taste


Peel the avocado and remove its seed; mash it up in a bowl.
Squeeze the seeds out of the tomato and pitch them, then dice the rest of it up fine and add to the avocado.
Mix the remaining ingredients in and let the resulting dip set for at least ten minutes or so, to let the flavors combine.
Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate if you're going to store it for very long.
Title: Re: ~Community Cooking Corner~
Post by: Pthalocy on February 02, 2015, 01:48:38 AM
I would just like to add: please wash all vegetables thoroughly. Many, especially roma tomatos, are treated with a food-grade oil coating to help deter mold and tiny flies that like tomatos. It makes them super shiny but it is gross imo. Cilantro especially needs a wash too, for it is super covered in gritty sand, like tons of it. Leeks are also really bad for secretly holding sand in their tricky spots. This should ensure your Rivet-style guacamole is the most delicious. (if jalapeños are too spicy, exclude the seeds. This will reduce their lava levels somewhat.)

A thank you to Rivet, because I made up guacamole like this to use up the lime we had p: But then I had no cornchips so I used it as sandwich spread.

At least at my work, grapes arrive in styrofoam boxes lined with a sheet that is permeated with sulphur dioxide if I recall. It makes mold not grow as well. Yuck. Yes, they still contain the preservative repellant sheet, which states explicitly that it is not to be left where customers can get it, because rules blabla mumbo jumbo. Seriously. Wash your grapes the most of any fruit.

The chocolate-toast-diabetes-sandwich!

You will need:
2 slices of bread

A toaster

Hershey's chocolate spreads.


How to create!

Put the bread in da toaster.

Procede to toast. If you do not know how to use a toaster, you have failed in life. (I prefer to toast the bread lightly.)

Put Hershey's spread on one side of both pieces of bread.

Mash the chocolate-covered toast together like its a sandwich.

Eat it.

Rivet's Tasty Buuz

Buuz (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buuz) are seriously tasty steamed dumplings from Mongolia. I got the basis of this recipe from a friend; it's her family recipe.



For the dough:
8 ounces flour
0.5 cup water


For the filling:
8 ounces raw ground beef
1 small onion, minced fine
1 teaspoon of finely minced garlic
a generous pinch of salt
a pinch of ground black pepper

Mix all dough ingredients together thoroughly to form a basic dough and allow it to rest for 15-20 minutes.
Once it has rested, roll the dough into a long cylinder about an inch in diameter and then cut it into inch-long slices.
Flatten each piece out using your hands or a roller until it's about 2.5-3 inches across, then fill with around a teaspoon of the filling, sealing the edges of the dough together to make a sealed 'pocket'. Don't flatten the dough bits very much in advance, as it will get dry and crack when you attempt to close it up.
Steam the buuz for about fifteen minutes, being careful that they don't stick together.

Serve with ice cold vodka and hot suutei tsai (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suutei_tsai).


For a tasty bit of (nontraditional) variety, add some finely chopped up vegetables like cabbage, carrot, or ginger to the filling, and/or replace the salt with soy sauce.

KA101's Mistakes

1) The Sandwich

1 part hamburger
1 part sweet Italian sausage, bulk (as in, not cased)

Form into a burger and fry up, then plate as you would a burger.  Surprisingly greasy even if it smells and kinda tastes delicious, so not something to eat in quantity.

2) The Beverage

1 packet instant cocoa mix
1 car dealership's complimentary coffee stand with hot water & decaf dispensers
4 shots or so of Irish Cream flavoring syrup
1 cup
1 stirrer

Decide that you're gonna end your day of car-shopping with a cocoa.  Open the mix and dump into your cup, mistakenly put about a tablespoon of decaf coffee into it thinking that was the hot water dispenser, finish with the actual hot water dispenser, add four or so shots of Irish Cream to cover up the coffee taste, stir, and enjoy.  Be careful; it's hot.

-_-

Not my day for food.

Tamago Kake Gohan

A classic Japanese breakfast dish, and one of Rivet's most favorite late-night recipes.

TKG is simply egg over rice:

Tamago - egg
Kake - to pour something over something else
Gohan - cooked rice



Basic Ingredients:

1/2 cup uncooked long grain white rice
1 cup water
1 room-temperature raw egg
shoyu (dark soy sauce)
salt


Operations:

Cook rice as usual, salt to taste.
Separate egg.
Put hot cooked rice in a bowl and thoroughly mix in the egg white.
Make a small depression in the center of the rice and carefully place the unbroken yolk into it.
Drizzle with soy sauce.



When it comes time to sit down and eat, break the yolk with your chopsticks and mix it into the rice.

It tastes even better if you steam the rice with a bit of kombu and/or top it with something like furikake, katsuobushi, black pepper, chopped green onion, slivers of nori, toasted sesame seeds, Tabasco sauce, natto, pitted umeboshi (my personal favorite), steamed spinach, nametake, chili pepper flakes, sliced gari, or chopped meat (bacon is an obvious choice here).

Okay this thread is amazing. I can't believe I didn't know it existed until now. I'm going to try to make those Buuz Dumplings when I get home. They sound great.

For the hell of it i'm going to post my own recipe.

Artyom's Grilled Cheese Sandwitch

A decadent grilled cheese with roast beef and a shit tons of cheese.

What your gonna need:
A cooking pan
A spatula

Ingrediants:

Two slices of White Bread.
Two slices of Yellow or White cheese (doesn't matter which brand)
(preferably) Boar's Head Roast Beef. How many slices depends on you.
A shit tons of spreadable butter. As in just take out your tub of "I Can't Believe it's not Butter" or equivalent.

To make:

Start by pre-heating your oven's burners and prepare your bread by spreading butter on one side of each slice. More butter the more it's going to be soggy. So put just enough so that your not going to burn your bread.
After about two minutes (depends on your burners) plop a slice of your now buttered bread in a cooking pan. Put one slice of cheese on the bread. Then the roast beef, and then the other slice of cheese. And finish by putting the other slice of bread on top of your mountain of cheese and beef.
Smash it down so that you get a good sized sandwich and so that you can flip it. Now flipping it might take some practice. Because you need to be fast and accurate in order to get the cheese melted on both sides so that your beef doesn't slide out of your sandwich and plops onto the cooking pan.
After your amazing flip just wait and cook your grilled cheese like normal. After the bread gets nice and brown on both sides take the pan off the burner and plate the sandwich on your preferred plate.

You can eat it like it is or you can go the extra mile and put a bit of mayo on it. But either way, your essentially gonna get a mini Philly Cheese Steak sandwich that is modifiable and delicious. So condiments are up to you. Hope you like it!

Such a bunch of wonderful recipes and so little of them from my homeland. Except there is a red borscht. But we do it in a little different way, but no matter.
So hello from Ukraine, comrades, and let's start some cross-cultural cooking :D
I will begin from simple and most common recipes and probably later will post something more complex, like vareniki, pirozhki or something. But today I show some nice easy breakfast.

Buckwheat kasha (you call it porridge, but 'kasha' is more authentic) with milk.
(we could probably put 'Soviet' in the title to make it sound more brutal)
You will need:
1/2 cup of buckwheat groats
1 cup of water
(buckwheat is always cooked in 1:2 proportion with water)
Milk
Butter
Honey (could be replaced with sugar)

Put a one cup of buckwheat and 2 cups of water in the pot. Add salt, just a little bit. Cook on a low heat until all water will be absorbed and evaporated (it will take about 15 min, maybe less). Buckwheat shouldn't be solid or crunchy when it's ready.
Add 1 cup of milk to the pot, teaspoon of butter and sweet to your taste. Cook on middle heat until milk is hot.
Eat. Enjoy.

Some lazy fried rice;

Cook rice.
Get some butter, put in on a bowl, add some soy sauce. Melt the butter, mix the butter and soy sauce together.
Put that cooked rice on a pan, no oil needed.
Pour the butter and soy sauce mix on the rice. Cook the rice on the pan for a bit.
Voila.
Eat as is, with a side dish, or turn it into rice balls.

Meat Broth:

Boil a small chunk of frozen meat in water until it's half-cooked and then take it out. Discard the froth.

Chop some tomatoes and put them in the boiling water.

Mince the meat and mix it with egg, pepper, and soy sauce, in a bowl.

Put the mixture in the water until it's thoroughly cooked.

Add some salt in the broth.

Veggie Broth:

Boil chopped carrot, chopped tomato, and minced onion in water, until the liquid is not very clear.

Add some salt in the broth.

The veggie broth has a trace of flavor of dried plum.

The pipe smokers liqueur.

Take some cinnamon, cinnamon sticks not powdered cinnamon, roughly 4-6 inches total and put it in a temporary container, preferably an air-tight  glass jar (you won't get them out of a glass bottle).
Add one stick of vanilla too.
Take some pre-frozen fresh habaneroes, I go with three but others might be less insane than me, crush them, chop them and add them, seeds are optional.
Grate about two to three inches of fresh ginger, squeeze the juice as well as you can into the jar and save the grated ginger.
Mix the grated ginger into about a cup of sugar or equivalent high quality sugar product (maple syrup, cane sugar or honey works well, High fructose corn syrup or sugar replacements to be avoided).
Pour the sugar in and stir well.
Top up with 3-4 cups of high quality vodka (or barring that, low quality vodka filtered through activated charcoal).
Seal up, store it dark but warm for about 3-4 weeks with the occasional shake.
Taste to see when ready, if the ginger is too mild, put it in a freezer for a while then let it warm up and shake vigorously, if this does not work, add more to next batch.
Filter through cheesecloth or coffee filters and bottle it.

This is an adult only recipe, but then again it contains vodka and is a liqueur so you probably already knew that.

As you Americans seem to be quite interested in this food since WW II, here you get an recipe for traditional Sauerkraut , how my grandma used to make it at that time.

You need:
-one small barrel
-one round, big, flat stone that still fits in the barrel
-a good load of salt
-enough cabbages to fill the barrel
-some caraway
-enough vinegar to fill the gaps
-a piece of cloth

Cut the cabbages into small pieces and add the caraway. Fill the barrel with hand-thick layers of cabbage and scatter some grains of salt in between. Put the stone on top(I suggest adding some kind of rope to it, to get it back out). Fill the whole barrel with vinegar and put the cloth over the top to prevent insects and dirt from falling in. Keep the barrel in a cool and dark place for the next three to four months, whilst checking every week if there is still enough vinegar and collect the mice and rats which might have drowned in it. Then, in the winter, grab your portion of sauerkraut from below the stone. I suggest heating it up before eating it, but that is not necessary for it to be edible. An easy way to prevent scurvy during the winter during a cataclysm.

PS.: We might want to add it as an recipe into the game.

It's already in the game, both as a food and as a recipe. Our version uses lactic acid bacteria fermentation, so there's no vinegar involved.

Haha, I've been doing a variation on Tamago Kake Gohan where I've been using those instant rice noodles instead. I drain all the water off and add the eggwhite, and they turn all noodly too from the heat. I add a bit of water back plus a mix of seasonings (I like ginger, lemon, soy sauce and green onions! Sometimes cilantro.) and left over broth from whatever was had for dinner the day before, and the yolk turns the broth cream coloured. Yum. tl;dr i like egg. Egg is good. Egg is friend.

Simple tasty seafood
Buy some frozen seafood mix, unfreeze it, heat 50 ml of oil with some chopped garlic (as much as you like), add the seafood, some salt & grounded pepper, let it stew a couple min, add 100 ml wine (half a glass), some aromatic herbs and optional some tomato sauce, let it stew a few more min. That's all :). Works great with some rice, i just wiped it with bread.

My lazy breakfast recipe. I didn't check if someone posted this already or if it has a name.

A bowl of rice. Usually leftovers from yesterday, because it takes a while to cook it fresh.

Fried eggs, make sure the yolk is runny. The number depends on how much rice you have. I usually make, like, 2-3.

Sesame oil

Soy sauce

Dried seaweed (optional)


Grab bowl of rice and add fried eggs, chop it up with a spoon or something and mix. The rice should turn yellow from the yolk.

Add soy sauce, the amount added is dependent on how salty you want it. If you mess up and add too much, just add more rice.

Add sesame oil, not to much but enough to get a slight sesame "nutty" flavor. Without this, the entire thing would taste like crap.

Seaweed is just an extra nice thing to have. Not really needed.


There's no real or exact amount of anything. Go for what tastes right for you.

Also, I usually eat this by itself but I guess you can have it with something else, personally I eat this with leftovers or a side of kimchi or something when I'm up for it.

TheWumpus presents: Pork Stroganoff (with special edition directors commentary)

Prep time: 30-40 minutes, depending on size of mushrooms
Cook time: 2+ hours (depending on amount of simmering time)
Feeds: Beats me, but I can eat on a pot of this stuff for about a week.

What you'll definitely need:
~2-3 pounds of pork chops. Really any kind is fine, bone in is usually less expensive and you're going to be cutting them up later so if you don't mind deboning them you'll be fine.
1 sweet onion. Red or yellow, I prefer yellow.
1 bunch green onion. Yes, a bunch, they are sold like that.
~1/2 lb crimini mushrooms. Also called baby bellas. You'll be hand slicing these so I prefer to pick out larger ones. Don't know what a crimini or a baby bella is? It's an immature portabella. If the spore sacks on the underside have started to open it's past its prime. Still tasty but not AS tasty.
White wine. I use carlo rossi chardonnay cause it's cheap and hasn't been aged. Don't want to use oak aged wine for cooking.
1 cup sour cream. If you can find some that's nearing its expiration date go for it, you're going to use it all right away.
2 cans beef broth
1 1/2 sticks butter. Unsalted. Sweet cream is the best.
Some all purpose flour. I don't have an exact measurement cause I make my roux on the fly.
Corn starch. Cause sometimes you just can't get the consistency right.
Kosher salt. Well any salt really I just prefer kosher for cooking meat.
Black pepper. Fresh ground is best, but do what you gotta do.
1 bag extra large egg noodles

What you may want:
Onion powder. Yes. There's already a LOT of onion in this. But a light dusting of onion powder helps really sear the flavor into the pork.
Garlic salt. Prefer this to garlic powder because it's super easy to overdo garlic powder.
Minced garlic. Up to you. I like garlic.
Smoked paprika. A very light dusting (just a few taps with the heel of the hand on the side of the bottle) adds an excellent smoky undertone.
Beau Monde seasoning. I find this gives a wonderfully robust flavor to white meats.
Herbs de Provence. This is a lighter counterpoint to the beau monde. Make sure to crush them well before sprinkling.
Port or sherry. For deglazing the pan. Since this is a lighter sauce I prefer sherry, although marsala is also a good choice.

How to do it:


And that's it. It may seem pretty complicated but it's really not. I make this dish with a total of one pan and one pot, one knife, one cutting board, and four bowls. The only time it's super time critical is making the roux because it can burn fairly easily. And the seasoning choices I make are for my taste. Go nuts with it. Add whatever flavors you want. And please don't use canned mushrooms. Just don't.

Post by: TooDAMNMuch on June 16, 2017, 03:33:15 AM
i've got a handful of recipes, but none of them are written down and none of them use precise measurements anyway, if you don't season by constantly tasting what you cook, you're not a chef really i don't think.

i guess that is what they teach the idiots these days though, but god damn, does it make for some awful shit-garbage, which could have easily been food if the person seasoned it at the proper time.

at any rate, i make one hell of a chicken soup from scratch (ok, fine, i cheat and use bullion, sue me) but anyway:

1. get a big boiling pot, fill it with water and around 7-15 cubes of chicken bullion and set it to high on the stove. only fill it about three quarters of the way to the top or you'll have to adjust in case of overflow when adding the rest.
2. also add basil, oregano, thyme and a bay leaf or two as well as some other spices you enjoy, go easy on them, give it a few moments to boil into your soup and then taste, keep adjusting until you think it's perfect, also after you've gotten the correct amount of other spices you can add salt and pepper, pepper can be poured in generously, or you can recklessly dump pepper into it as well if you want a very spicy soup, i'm talking TONS of pepper here though so just keep dumping, it'll clear your sinuses out good when you've got enough, but if you want it mild, go with the common sense amount instead.
3. get 2-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts and drop them in the water to boil
4. do the same with 1-5 potatoes (i told you there are no exact measurements in real cooking, use your common sense), as a note i will say typically i peel them, but they work pretty well with the skin still on too if that's your preference, if you choose to do that however give them a nice good cleaning first, you don't want to taste dirt, after all.
5. slice up some celery to the desired sizes and toss that in too
6. (fine, one exact measurement) one gigantic white onion and personally one large walla walla onion as well, cube both and add to the warming water.
7. i also typically add a few carrots as well, peel and slice them, toss those suckers in, if you want other veggies now is the time to prepare them accordingly and add to the soup.
8. with any luck your water should have been boiling for at least a few minutes by now, if not, give it 5-10 and wait until it comes to a vigorous rolling boil
9. check that the bullion is fully dissolved, the water should be a nice neon yellow color by now.
10. pull the chicken breasts out with a pair of tongs, being careful not to burn yourself while handling them and cut them into approximately quarter of the breast sized strips, cut each strip either in half or into quarters depending on size (you're aiming for bite size here) if the chicken isn't fully cooked on the inside don't give it a moments worry, it's going right back into the boiling water anyway.
11. now you can open the package of noodles (use whatever kind you like but the kind i use and the kind these directions assume are big gigantic flour noodles you can get from uwajimya cultural food market, they're about 4mm thick or so, if you use egg noodles you'll need to let them cook, so be aware of that but flour type are always "raw") and add half a cup of vegetable oil to the soup, you can also add it directly to the noodles later, if you prefer but i feel straight into the soup tastes pretty good, the real purpose however is to keep the noodles nice and slippery slick, you want them things lubed up good cause here's where i divert from chicken soup you're expecting.
12. set aside a colander or something to strain and hold the noodles in afterwards and put them in the soup, give em around 5 minutes or so to get nice and boiled and warm up, they should steam heavily when lifted from it, if not let them go a few more, but with flour noodles, don't boil them to death, they could disintegrate if let in (a very long) too long and then put them in the colander and your soup is done.
OPTIONAL 13. you can also add things like green peppers, jalapenos, most any veggie really, i usually do some form of peppers myself, make sure to clean them of seeds if you use peppers, they're not listed as mandatory cause not everyone likes the same veg, use what you want, you probably have a general idea how to prepare it as well so that won't be explicitly addressed. and if you do this step, obviously don't wait until you're finished or they'll be uncooked. extra note, shallots are a good addition to... let's be honest, just about anything, just my recommendation.

serve the soup and noodles separately, each person should take however much noodles they want in a bowl and pour the sour over top.


and there you go, killer chicken soup, it really doesn't have a name and there's no real recipe either, i just started adding things to a pot, sampling it and well.... not being shit at cooking due to my dad being a chef, a Too-DAMN-Much original of a very well played out dish.

final note, this should take you anywhere from 2-3 hours to prepare, if it doesn't you're most likely undercooking things and needn't add bay leaves as they take a LONG time to really add much flavor anyway, also, most of your guests should be too smart to eat a bay leaf, but in case they aren't, BAY LEAVES ARE POISONOUS DO NOT EAT THEM IF YOU GET ONE IN YOUR SOUP, no need to go to the hospital because you thought there was lettuce in the soup, i've heard of people doing that.


[edit] was having a moment, changed all instances of thyme leaves to be bay leaves as is correct
also, in case of your attempt tasting like crap, a few things i'll suggest are go lighter on the seasoning initially as well as consider what spices you use and if any of them don't go well together (where you ad-lib) or have conflicting flavors, cooking is 100% trial and error, this didn't taste amazing until the third time i made it, personally, my meat stew recipe is still being worked on and isn't ready to serve anyone. [/edit]
