  • Darthplagueis13

    So... why even put an irish flag on it if you weren't able to get Irish beer (strange that you couldn't get any guiness though. And a pity because it goes really well with meat) to begin with? Did you start off with a selection of paper flags and then look for liquor that belonged to them?

    • Darthplagueis13
      Darthplagueis13 10 days ago

      Would've liked to see Sherry as well. It's really good in a lot of meat related dishes but I have no clue how it'll do in a sous vide marinade (although I suspect it might actually be quite nice because sherry is very sweet and has a lot of good aroma whilst also being stronger than wine (and the stronger liquors seem to make the stuff more tender) and not being as sour as the wine (which I assume is why you didn't like the french red wine. Red wine only can shine as part of a sauce with sweet onions/shallots and maybe even creme to temper the acidity).

    I have to ask about the beer: is there a part two with different beers? Like dark, pils, ipa, lager, light, bock, doublebock, Malt(the alcoholic one, don't know how to separate them) etc. I think the most intresting would be Pils, dark, ipa, (double)bock and Malt, probably an export, too. That could be really intresting.

    Fascinating how God made so much of a point in Israel to not mix different kinds of things and that purity is so much better. Although he seems to be totally find with spices and herbs and salts etc. Just don't merge things... Your sauce vid, your butter vid, and all your alcohol vids seem to be proving his point ay. The way God makes things is perfect.

    Mate. You do realise you have to cook off the alcohol in a pan, it can't be done in a sous vide. Especially hard alcohol like whiskey or vodka. It cooks off the alcohol so you're left with the sweetness and/or bitterness of the alcohol.

    For France :
    The French are the biggest whisky drinkers in the world
    Red wine is a good choice of course but you could have used Cognac or Pastis (anise liquor very popular in Southern France and all around the Mediterranean sea)

    I think the fact that was beer vs liquor is what make it better you should try again with different types of beer from different places as well as different type of liquor and divide those from wine, to those that are liquor I bet there is a difference

    Alcohol is not normally used in marinades if you want the flavor of the drink you need to flame off the alcohol first.

  • Lunay LeZarde
    Lunay LeZarde 5 months ago

    First, how could you not find Guinness? Second, while moonshine is undoubtedly American, I'd have to say that bourbon is far more representative of American tastes in liquor. Why so? Because moonshine can be made anywhere, but authentic bourbon can only be made in America.

  • Kalamite

    Alcohols taste different with different steaks. Also, if you had marinated then removed the marinade, this would’ve turned out far different.
