I've always pronounced it jai-roh. My parents pronounce it jai-roh. I've never had a waiter or waitress point out that it was anything different when I've ordered one. A couple months ago I was talking about a gyro I had to an aquaintance and they had no idea what I was talking about. After I described it to them they said something like "Oh, you mean a gyro?", only they pronounced it sort of like 'year-oh' or 'euro'. What is the correct way to pronounce it? Are both ways acceptable, like tomato, or vase?
Raoh pwns them all, you fool!
It's "Jai-roh!" like "Gyroscope" ;)
from an american perspective, the g is silent the same as with the words gnome or gneiss, some historic relic left attached in the visual spelling, it can be difficult or even unwanted to change tradition.
Apparently it's supposed to be pronounced "yee-ro", but my Pittsburghian slang (I can thank my parents for that) causes me to pronounce it "jai-ro".
when I was in greece, they pronounced it yi-roh
In this thread, we talk about tea. We talk about what we drink. What tea goes good with. What we mix with tea. Etcetera. Forever. Let it begin.
Tie Guan Yin tastes good, the flavour is very rich.
Any white tea you'd recomend ?
Silver Needle is my favorite. I'm no tea connoisseur, but I believe it is white tea. Has a subtle flavor that is both delicious and not overpowering. I'd suggest others to try it too.
Whenever you see something that basically just says "Iced Tea" it's actually Black Tea.
tell me more about loose puerh
i feel like most every website i have ever tried to order tea from has been mostly marketing. real life is the same. it makes me sad. i just want to know what kind of tea it is and where it's grown. if they can't tell me that, or if they're not selling it loose, i'm won't but it.
i like jasmine green tea. white tea is fine, but i burnt out on what i've got. both make really good iced tea, usually. i like to keep a pitcher in the fridge most of the time.
i love jasmine pearl tea, i love to eat the leaves too
Lapsang souchong's pretty good, if you're into the whole smoky smell.
TEA! Teateatea. I just love drinks in general, but tea is my favorite.
Wuxi Oolongs! I'm trying to get my hands on some Da Hong Pao, I have some Tie Luohan but I'm trying to ration it because it's 2fresh2furious.
I really like the variations in sweetness and the potential for powerful savory tastes in Oolongs. Iron Goddess is a great place to start if you're looking for the weird suspension between flowery lightness and hearty fullness to the liquor, and there's so much room to explore.
Also so many re-steeps and better with every steep. You can sit with a liter of water in a thermos and steep until your bladder gives way then heat up more water and then keep going.
I wouldn't really advise loose Pu-er. Messes with the fermentation and stuff and dries out way too quick, go for cakes.
I have a lot of steak that I want to stir fry. what's the best way?
also what else do you like to stir fry?
there is no best way.
the steps to stirfry are:
i like to stirfry tofu and various vegetables. yu choy is good.
Chicken stirfry's alright. I've been meaning to try shrimp stirfry, but I can never find it fresh around here.
ITT simple recipees! Try to keep everything as simple and non-regional as possible. All manner of clarifications and explanations are welcome.
That crunchy brown crust is precisely why some people like eggs that way. The same way some people prefer barbecue over roast.
If you want sissy-white eggs, use lower heat and learn to handle them delicately.
Guacamole How I like it
2 Full Avocados
1 Red Onion
Take Two avocados (not too ripe) and scoop them into a bowl, mash it with a spoon or fork or whatever. Depends on if you like it chunky or not.
Take about a quarter of the red onion and chop into small pieces. Mix it in.
Take about a quarter or less of a tomato and chop it small. Mix it in.
Take a full Jalapeno chop it small. Mix it in.
mmm...sounds yummy. I usually just buy the pringles, but Imma try this with (tortilla) chips
You could also try tamagoyaki if you'd like your omelet to be all exotic and asian like. It's not hard to make, give it a try.
Grilled Cheese + Tomato Soup
Very easy thing is a simply salad. Get lettuce, cucumber, tomato and carrot (those are my basic ingredients). You can add other things like onion etc though I never really bother out of laziness. Chop it all up, add lemon or lime juice, olive oil and salt and it is ready.
Note, when I make a salad I tend to use a whole lettuce, a whole cucumber, one tomato and one or two carrots. I have no idea whether anyone else does it like that.
oh good lord that is so not an omelette in any way or form.
>step 1) three whole eggs in a bowel, whipped thoroughly.
>step 2) heat saute pan to 180F once hot, butter pan

>step 4) butter sides of the omelette well after 90 sec of cooking and flip
>step 5)insert filling and fold into crescent on plate for american style
>step 6)fold one third over top to make brochure shape and fill with cheese or cream mixture

What Do something about the garbage floating on the ocean
Lived ghetto in Hawaii for awhile and we ate spam, rice, and eggs or Portuguese sausage, rice, and eggs sometimes twice a day. Cheapest meal you can get there. Rice, eggs over easy or sunny side up (runny yolks is key), "meat" of choice, soy sauce to flavor and blend with spatula. Add a dash of Tabasco if you're into that. It's good, I swear.
That sounds very Samoan. Fried eggs & rice with Spam, I mean. Not being "ghetto."
Rice with a salad on top is always good. Plenty of onions and garlic, then mix in soya sauce and olive oil. So good...
Watch the Gaki no Tsuki rice cooking episodes. They're funny plus you can try out one or two dishes yourself since they're reviewing them on the spot
Just out of curiosity...what's the best brand out there?
At present, I typically get Digiornos or Digiornos deluxe, though I've been tempted to try Freschetta before too.
Also, am I the only one here who adds toppings? I typically dice a lot of green and red bell pepper to add to the mix, as well as a liberal amount of actual pepper sprinkled all over. I've tried putting ham on as well, and that wasn't too bad either.
You have observed something very significant.
You cannot have good pizza if the crust is not good. No matter how good the sauce and cheese and toppings are, if the crust is not good, it will ruin the experience.
There's a pizza buffet chain called CiCi's Pizza in various cities in the US. I tried one once in the 1990s and tried one a thousand miles away two years ago, and it was the same: the crusts of the pizzas tasted like old stale bread that had been sitting on top of the refrigerator too long. They seem to buy their crusts pre-made and put toppings on them and throw them in the oven. They also seem to be buying the frozen crusts from the lowest bidder.
Just so, when a pizza sits in the refrigerator and gets old and cold, what's the most disturbing, wrong thing about it when you try to eat it cold the next day? The crust usually has hardened and turned into bread-flavored concrete. If you microwave it, and the crust softens, it will be edible again.
Frozen Pizza's taste HORRIBLE.
The cheese is usually god-awful, the sauce is always overloaded, and the crust always sucks. Pizza Shops have amazing pizza's, which I always recommend. Domino's and Papa John's taste amazing, and of course if your a business hating faggot, you can always try some local stores, local pizza shops always taste good.
Also: Pizza is incredibly easy to make from scratch, if your THAT much of a cooking fag. I love homemade pizza's, but I'm not going to be one of those guys who hates eating out at places when you can make shit at home.
Chicago Town, motherfuckers.
I like Goodfellas deep pan/crust best. Never liked the thin stuff, or those godawful blocks 'o tomato toppings.
Family pizza restaurants are the best
I like to microwave them enough to roll them up into a pizzarito and then bake them crispy and cut them into little round slices... It's one of the nicest ways I've found of making something crappy into something appetizing.
If I'm all by myself, though, I just roll it up and eat it, even if it's semi-cold in the middle still.
Seconding this guy.
Though, it's entirely possible he was me.
Don't know much about frozen pizzas. The only pizza I ever eat now is from a small neighborhood place that makes the best ones in the whole city. >>19 is right; pizza isn't worth eating unless you get it from a really good local place or you straight up make it from scratch.
The worst pizza I've ever had wasn't frozen, however. It is from Papa John's. There's too much cheese, the fucking pizza is chewy (pizza shouldn't be goddamn chewy) and I don't know what they put in that sauce, but every time I've ever eaten even one slice of Papa John's pizza I got the shits for the next hour at least. Fuck Papa John's, and fuck the idiot owner who appears on their commercials, because he's a goddamn liar.
I think a lot of the quality difference has to do with whether the people who work in the restaurant care about making a quality product. From any chain, from any local restaurant, you can get good pizza or bad pizza. If the managers are trying to save money by not throwing away ingredients that are going stale, if the cooks just don't care and just go through the motions, you will get bad pizza.
In different locations, in different cities, I have had good pizza from a Papa John's and bad pizza from a Papa Johns. I have had good pizza from a Little Caesar's and bad pizza from a Little Caesar's. I have had good pizza in small independent restaurants and bad pizza.
Not frozen, but if you live in the UK, some Asda stores have pizza counters where they make a fresh pizza for you. Then you take it home, refrigerate it, stick it in the oven for ten minutes, and enjoy.
Also, for leftover pizza:
