I buy outside skirt steaks for my restaurant and they are more flavorful, tender and expensive. They are more forgiving than inside skirts. If you over cook an inside skirt more than med rare it is leather. I have yet to find outside Skirt steaks in grocery stores. As of 6/29/15 21-28 day aged choice certified angus beef outside skirts are going for around ...

Golden syrup should work just fine as it has a similar texture.

I am not a professional baker and am still learning but I bake almost every week. In my country ghee is a main ingredient in our houses, whether its made from clarifying butter at home or just buying it. I use ghee in all my bakes, even in making caramel sauce, brownies, cheesecakes or cookies. Just be careful what the recipe calls for. If it is cold cubes ...

Tamari is a byproduct of making misu. It is the real deal. Shoyu is a tamari imitation made by altering the misu process to increase liquid production without hurting flavor. (It almost succeeds. not bad but not quite as good as the real thing.) Soy sauce could be either of these mixed with other fillers to increase production volume or yet another product ...

Substitutes for cream of tartar: For stablizing egg whites - lemon juice or white vinegar use equal amount. For leavening - replace cream of tartar and baking soda with baking powder. 1 tsp. baking powder = 1/3 tsp. baking soda + 2/3 tsp. cream of tartar.

Cream of Tartar is potassium bitartrate in the form of powder. It is acidic, and is used in cooking mainly to stabilise meringue. Tartare sauce is a mayonnaise-based sauce made using cornichons, capers, and tarragon or dill. It is usually served with seafood. The two items are completely different and cannot be substituted one for the other.

I just read that the liquid from canned chickpeas can be used as an egg substitute in recipes. You can even whip it for meringue.

Another reason you can't replace acids is that they are involved in important chemical reactions. Some flavors are soluble acid but not in just water, and also acid helps deglaze pans because it's a stronger solvent than water alone.

If you search for a non-acid substitute for souring the food / raising the tartness: There is no substitute. The sensation of a tart dish is caused by lowering the pH at the corresponding taste buds. By definition tasting sourness is detecting an acid.

It's not Massaman without coconut milk. Massaman I have had this in the south of Thailand and usually not too thick with coconut milk, it is a carrier of the other flavors.

I would use cream as well. It's very similar in structure, thus they both have the title cream.

http://thegentlechef.com/blog/?p=1563 This briny infusion is rich in “umami” (a loanword from the Japanese which can be described as a “pleasant savory flavor”) and can be used in equal amounts as a replacement for traditional fish sauce in your favorite Southeast Asian recipes.

Depends on what flavours exactly you are going for. Red vinegar does tend to be less sharp / strong than white spirit vinegar. The distinction in flavours will probably be subtle enough as to not matter too much but still it will make some difference.

You can add any kind if vinegar you'd like, that's a matter of taste, as long as you add an equal quantity. White wine (and white wine vinegar) usually goes better with light foods like fish, but there will be no impact on how the vinaigrette will come together if you use red wine vinegar.

Sure if you dont mind the sauce being a little pink?

Culinarily speaking, large marshmallows are identical ounce-for-ounce to miniature marshmallows, so for the purpose of an ingredient substitution, this should not cause you a problem. But there are a few things to consider: Miniature marshmallows are obviously smaller… so if your recipe calls for using them whole, you may have to decide if the larger ...

Braised chicken breasts...moist and pull apart easily. They'll be good with virtually any sauce you'd be using with pork.

1/2 cup of shortening is 110 g, while 1/2 cup of butter is 114 g. Also, butter is only 82% fat. So if you want to be precise, use 134 g of butter: (100/82)*110 = 134. You may want to reduce the liquid by 24 g in this case. If you don't care for precision, you can also substitute 1:1 and use 1/2 cup of butter. Most recipes for quickbreads are flexible ...

Paruppu Urandai, is a Tamilian (Iyengar/South Indian) Recipe. It uses Thuvara or Tur Dal (Arhar Dal). Now substituting Tur Dal with Yellow Peas, wouldn't be right choice. Tur has a special flavour, which is retained even after it turns to Cereal or Cooked. But the Pea looses its flavour when it turns to Cereal, it turns tasteless. So Tur's unique flavour ...
