Dinner Friday 8th of March

Where are you Kylie? Are you still alive? Couldn't find the dinner thread

I'm making spicy beef shin stew with cous cous.

Kylie - help me out on the fried rice. Mine always ends up like a homemade glue. Did you do the rice in a cooker first?

I love shrimp fried rice. Since I never get take out anymore I should really learn to make it.

I'm going to cook up Lucia's rissoto & pork sausage recipe. I just finished Googling the conversions.

Beef stew is made. Added a few dashes of smoked chipotle tabasco, completely ruined the dish lol! How can something that tastes so good become gross in stew?
Won't make that mistake again.
Maybe it's just my taste buds. Flu tends to make things taste funny.

Hey, GA. The rice doesn't have to be made in a cooker first, but it does need to be premade, either on the stove top or in a microwave, and then cooled before making the fried rice. It's traditionally made with leftover rice.

I don't know yet what we're doing for dinner tonight.

When making fried rice, rinse long grain rice thoroughly, cook it in a little less water than usual. Store in the fridge overnight or spread the cooked rice on a cookie sheet and refrigerate it for 30 minutes or so.

I've heard it's best made with leftover rice, but I rarely have any leftover rice
