re: McDonalds "Grand Mac" - Dave Worth
It's not the "original" Big Mac. When McDonald's started, the only patty size was a 10:1 (1.6 ounces). The Big Mac was and is just 2 of those patties. The QPC came out and is a 4:1 (4 ounces) patty. The Angus burgers McDonald's had was a 3:1 patty (5.3 ounces). For a limited time, McDonal...

re: Limoncello (Photos) - Dave Worth
Orangecello is great. I think I like it even more than limoncello. Last time I made a batch of orangecello and limoncello at the same time. I took a bottle of everclear and a bottle of normal vodka and mixed them. Then half of the mixture went into the oranges and the other half went into the ...

[quote]Spoilers I refuse to believe that Mary is dead/died that way. This show has never shown even an inkling of that ridiculous kind of thing. Something else is afoot here.[/quote] That's not a spoiler so I'll just answer. Mary was always going to die. She died in ...

re: Macy's to close 68 stores and layoff 10k. Thanks a lot, Donald! - Dave Worth
Businesses fail and shut down every day. It's not Obama's or Trump's fault that Macy's didn't keep their customers happy enough to make money on them. Somebody was jokingly right...thanks, Amazon. Amazon shifted and filled a customer need. Macy's didn't. Sears didn't. KMart didn't. We'll see ...

re: School me on Sous vide - Dave Worth
[quote]food doesn't have to be blasted with heat to get its internal temperature to a desired level ... the food is more moist and retains its juices better ...[/quote] When heated, the muscles in meat contract and expel juices. The higher the temp, the more juice lost. Sous vide is a gentler p...

re: Cooking a whole tenderloin for Christmas - Dave Worth
I think sous vide is a great way to cook this for Christmas. I did it last year. The bonus is that it's hands off so you can focus on the other food prep. I cut mine into two pieces to fit in the sous vide. For finishing, I would suggest you could either sear with butter in a cast iron or tos...

[quote]f Paulie did lose everything, when/how did he start the restaurant? [/quote] Rocky's money man either stole or invested poorly. This was Paulie's fault as he was in charge while they were in Russia. Poor decision. But he was still Rocky. He could make money a lot of ways as a belov...

re: which cut of any meat improves the most with sous vide? ... - Dave Worth
I agree pork shines the best. I love doing pork chops or tenderloin. I really like chicken breasts, too. I eat a chicken filet and salad for lunch at work everyday. On Sundays I sous vide filets for the week, usually with just some Tony's and set the temp for 145. Leave them sealed and take t...

re: Steak porn. Sous Vide prime ribeyes. - Dave Worth
[quote]You really shouldn't need to do a dedicated "sit ten minutes" rest.[/quote] True. When you cook at a high temp, the heat forces the juices to the center of the meat. The rest allows it to redistribute. When you cook with sous vide, it's a more gentle process and the juice stays put. ...

[quote]You do know McDonalds only brings the McRib back when pork prices are in the dumpster?[/quote] Not true. McRib is labeled as a LTO (limited time offer). The country is divided into advertising co-ops based on the marketing DMAs. Each year the owners get a list of approved LTOs they can ...

re: Has anybody ever experienced having a house re-piped? - Dave Worth
We almost re-piped a house. We lived in Collierville, TN for about 7 years. Apparently the builder who built most of the neighborhood in the 80s used pipes that were thinner than normal. There was also something about the water in Collierville having more minerals than normal or something. The c...

re: Most surprising NFL draft bust - Dave Worth
I think Curry is way up there. A can't miss guy who at worst would be a Pro Bowler every year. At this point, I don't label any QB as a surprising bust. Too many "can't miss" QBs haven't made it. I also don't hold people accountable for injuries. Mandarich with the Packers was a big one. A...

Question about having 2 XB1s - Dave Worth
I live in New Orleans but work in Baton Rouge. My wife and I have thought about buying a condo in Baton Rouge that I would use a couple of days during the week to skip the commute. If I bought a second XBX1, could I link the two? Meaning just one Gold membership and profile and sharing a digita...
