"What Can I do With X?" Thread
I've got a bunch of frozen ground beef divided by weight. I have plenty of things I can do with it, but I'm looking for something new besides tacos, meat sauce and the normal casseroles. Suggestions?

With the holidays approaching, now is the time to start preparing festive food. Post recipes of your holiday favourites for this time of year. Let us know your preferred cookie or what meat you like to serve on New Year's eve.
On my side, I'm all about making sweets. I always make an array of cookies, with a preference for gingerbread. Ultra-boozy fruit cake gets passed along to the family too. This year I'm going make kletzenbrot, though I'm going to try random fruit rather than dried pears which I've never seen where I live. I thought about trying my hand at panettone (or pandoro), but I don't want to buy the specific mold for it and I have a bakery nearby which makes some in-house.

You. Yes, you. Come here. Look at me and tell me truth. Your friends all talk about pizza, and you laugh and agree when they tell you that Domino's is the best, or that they prefer Papa John's. You never say what you really think, though, so they don't know the truth. But I do. You prefer Pizza Hut. That crisp on the outside, soft and almost cake-y on the inside, incredibly greasy and incredibly satisfying crust.
That's okay. I'm going to teach you how to make Pizza Hut style deep dish dough in your own kitchen with only one relatively uncommon tool required: a pizza stone. The only other dishes required are a bowl for mixing and storage, a cast-iron pan for cooking, a measuring cup and a scale.
>240g bread flour
>1/2tsp traditional yeast
>15ml olive oil
Add all the flour and all the yeast to a bowl and mix to combine. Add the water and olive oil and mix until no dry spots appear on the surface. Add a pinch of salt, mix a little further just to incorporate the salt. This dough is going to be crazy sticky and you're going to be tempted to add more flour; do not do this. Now, it's time for kneading. "But anon", you cry, your pathetic wrists aching just at the thought, "I hate kneading!". That is because you are weak, and I am here to make you strong. Imagine that ball of dough is a compass. On each of the 4 cardinal directions (that's North, South, East and West if you're retarded), grab the bottom of the dough and fold it over onto the top. Do this for all four sides, then cover with cling wrap. Compass-fold again every 5 minutes, three more times. Voila! You've just found the laziest possible way to "knead" dough!
Believe it or not, your dough is now almost done. Transfer it into a well-oiled container, cover, and let sit in either a not-terribly-cold fridge or a cool, dark, dry spot like your pantry, for at least 4 hours up to 12. I keep my fridge near freezing and it was too cold for the dough and ended up killing the yeast, but the pantry was fine. When you go to retrieve the dough, it will have almost tripled in size. Congratulations!
Get the dough out of that container into a well-oiled cast-iron pan. You'll need to force it down quite a bit, but don't be overly rough with it. Once it's pushed out to fill the pan, cover with cling wrap and let it sit for about an hour at room temperature to puff back up a bit. Trust me. Once the oven is ready, uncover the dough, sauce that slut, and - what's that? You don't have a sauce recipe? For fuck's sake
8oz can tomato sauce
1-2 teaspoons each of the following:
>dried marjoram (not ground)
>dried oregano (not ground)
>dried basil (not ground)
>garlic salt (go easy on this)
Mix it. Yes, that's it. Taste and adjust. Start with only 1/2 tsp of garlic salt, it's potent.
COOKING 2: COOK HARDER
Once the oven is ready, uncover the dough, sauce that slut and top as desired. Top it with whatever the hell you want but make absolutely sure that the base layer, directly on top of the sauce, is grated mozzarella. I like pepperoni and mushrooms. Make sure they're sliced fairly thin, because you're not going to have it in the oven long. Fire this bad boy into the preheated oven, directly on top of the pizza stone, for about 7 minutes, then rotate it 90 degrees and cook for another 7-ish minutes. Take it out at about 15 minutes total; if the cheese isn't melted to your satisfaction then throw it in for a few more minutes (but not too long). Once it's removed from the oven, let it sit in the pan for at least 5 minutes to re-absorb the olive oil, then remove onto a wire rack to cool for another 5 or so minutes, then slice that motherfucker and eat it.
Congratulations! You are now armed with the knowledge to make yourself insanely fat for pennies on the dollar with nothing but a flat stone, a piece of iron and some basic ingredients.

We're in the process of organizing a new edition of The Infinity Cup
or /icup/ for short, a virtual soccer tournament pitching various
boards and imageboards against each other, and we're trying to find out if any of the boards that previously joined us wanted to reserve a spot
in the final tournament.
Since your team was already present in previous iterations, we already have both your roster, your kits and logos, so the only thing we ask of
you if you want to join is the following:
1) Making sure your team has the correct number of medals (1 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze), which you can see from the wiki page http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//ck/;
2) Making a thread over at https://anon.cafe/
with your team's pledge, you just need to make a new thread telling us that your board wants in on
Optionally) Assign player cards, roles and special strategies to your players, which can be referenced from the following wiki articles:
Optionally2) Change roster names and/or give us 3D models to use for your team, or new kits or whatever contribution you'd like.
I hope to see you guys on the pitch!

A thread on everything bread. From cinnamon buns to sourdough loaves. Post recipes, share progress, or ask for advice.
I've been on the sourdough journey for nearly two years now, with the first year being quite the struggle. I eventually settled on an overnight first rise on the counter (except in the exceptional heat of the summer), shaping, and then letting it rise until it was just right. I recently made some burger buns and pizza dough, but I've made quite a few recipes by this point.
For anyone interested in starting the sourdough journey, I recommend Weekend Bakery (e.g. https://www.weekendbakery.com/posts/no-knead-soft-sourdough-rolls/)
and Butter for All (e.g. https://www.butterforall.com/traditional-cooking-traditional-living/how-to-bake-the-perfect-sourdough-boule-in-your-dutch-oven/).
Your starter will need time to gain strength, so don't expect crazy results upfront, but if you persist with sourdough pancakes, you will end up with great bread.

Halloween Cooking and Recipes
It's the time of year for spooky treats and dishes of all sorts.
I'll start with a meal from one of the first horror novels: Paprika Hendl from Dracula
There's several different versions of this dish, this is the recipe I've used before.
1 lb. chicken
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
2 Chopped onions
1-2 cloves of garlic (optional)
2 Tablespoons Hungarian Paprika
1/2 Cup of tomato juice or tomato sauce
2 Tablespoons of flour
1/2 Cup of sour cream
Defrost and cut chicken into serving-size pieces.
In a large pot, lightly saute chopped onions in oil until brown.
Blend half of your paprika with your onions.
Add tomato juice, garlic, and raw chicken to the mix.
Cover the pot, and let it simmer on low heat for 1 hour.
Remove the chicken from the stew
Thoroughly blend in remaining paprika, flour and sour cream; use a mixer of some kind, if necessary.
Simmer for a few minutes, stirring constantly.
Ladle sauce over chicken, and enjoy.
If you want a spicier dish then use hot paprika instead of the sweet variety. If you really want to make the dish Halloween themed then use black bone chicken, assuming you can find some. Personally I go lighter on the onions then what the recipe recommends.
If you're going strictly traditional then this should be served over spaetzle or nokedli or some other small dense dumpling. If you can't make it or don't have a source for dried spaetzle then short, heave noodles or even rice can be used as an alternative.

Culinary Highs and Lows
Talk about your suppressed memories of horrible food you ate, or fondly reminiscence about a wonderful meal. It doesn't have to be something you made, but it should be memorable.
There's a chocolatier near my house who makes ice cream and sorbet during the summer. They are always true to their flavor - the watermelon sorbet tasted like biting into a watermelon, the banana ice cream was spot-on. But the best one to date was a salted butter ice cream. I only saw it one time last year, but it moved me.
When I was in China many years back, I tasted scorpion on a dare. I don't know if it was the worst thing I've ever eaten, but it was certainly questionable and bad. Tasted like ill-prepared intestine.

Jewish cuisine and Biblically pious cooking
"THEY TRIED TO KILL US. THEY FAILED. LET'S EAT"
I was invited here to share my cooking. I've been cooking Jewish foods lately, so I'm posting them first. Given 8chan's history, you all should be able to relate to the unofficial motto for Jewish feasts. I expect that I'll be doing most of the posting here, so feel free to ask me things.
1. Home-baked six-stranded challah. I stopped fucking with sourdough starter as soon as instant yeast was available again and darted straight for the king of breads: challah, or Ashkenazi Sabbath bread, named after the dough offering to be given to the Temple in Jerusalem. It's long been considered the best bread for French toast. Mine mostly follows Lan Lam's tangzhong-based recipe for Cook's Illustrated, adding two egg whites and removing 1/4 cup of water with seeds inside and outside, and as you can see, it's fucking excellent. I intend to try Yemenite breads if I can get my hands on the bakeware they use, but for now, I'm sticking with the best bread I know.
2. Cholent. I made this Ashkenazi-style Sabbath stew, vaguely thought to have originated with French Jews, for the first time on the eve of the Sabbath when some faggot shot people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh; his faggotry motivated me to dust off my family's Ashkenazi traditions. The round thing in the stew is retail stuffed derma or kishka, a bread-and-vegetable sausage that's the best part of the dish. Mine here is after Jamie Geller's with retail challah, short ribs, canned beans, and a shorter cooking time; if you follow her recipe, don't cut the cooking time when you're using dry kidney beans unless you want to asspain your guests. Lately I've been adding farro, lima beans, and sliced chuck to change things up.
3-11. Brisket, potato kugel, latkes, kasha varnishkes, ropa vieja, Yemenite chicken soup with matzo balls, zhug, hilbe, and hawayij. Brisket is one of the few recipes that I actually inherited from my parents; my long-term goal is to use my family's ingredients with a more bulletproof braising method (à la America's Test Kitchen) to make sure it always comes out well (theirs does not). If you want to try one of these before the others, try potato kugel first, it's a latke casserole; I garnish mine with home-grown chives. I blended black garlic into the homemade farfalle for the kasha for a guest and was told it's the best ever. Also, turns out that Cuba's national dish, ropa vieja, was borrowed from Sephardi Jews; my first attempt at cooking it (from Genie Miligrom's recipe) wasn't great, so next time I'll be using the one from the Columbia Restaurant in Florida. Of Joan Nathan's recipes, Yemenite chicken soup was good, zhug was so great that I'm surprised it isn't mainstream, hilbe was strange, and I'm going to put hawayij on my next steak.
1. Crypto-Jewish "chuletas", which are a French toast-like concoction that superficially resembles pork chops, supposedly cooked to throw off Spanish Inquisitors. I have the recipe, but I haven't had morning company for breakfast fare during the pandemic.
2-3. Jachnun and kubaneh, the Yemenite Sabbath breads I mentioned above. No recipes or bakeware yet.
4. Italian Jewish style couscous. Edda Machlin's recipe for couscous broth (thurshi?) is so complicated that it has to be fucking delicious.
5. Kibbeh, introduced to me by Mark himself. I need the recipe.
6. Corned beef from scratch, to be sliced and served on the challah, or on a rye loaf baked with flour sent to me by another 8channer.
7. Edda Machlin's Tuscan-style cholent.

Recipe Searching Thread
How do you all find new recipes? I find it annoying to go out and buy ingredients if I want something to eat besides plain rice and frozen tendies, so I had the idea that surely there are ingredient search engines that return recipes, rather than vice versa. So far www.supercook.com seems the nicest out of the 3 I tried so far, it asks what foods you have and splits recipe results into a few categories. One of the ones it spat out is a recipe for some bean soup. Is there anything anon uses, like meal plans or recipe books?

Recreating my mom's recipe for "B'rer Rabbit"
>2 adult rabbits, cleaned and dressed
>One large can of cream of mushroom soup (get the premium stuff, not Campbells)
>2 celery stalks
>2 large carrots
>salt, pepper, and a pinch of brown sugar
Pour about 1/4 inch of water in the bottom of the casserole dish. Quarter the rabbits and stack the quarters on their sides in the large casserole dish. Dice the carrots and celery and pack them in between and on top of the quarters. Sprinkle just a little salt and pepper over the meat and follow with the pinch of brown sugar. Don't use too much as a little goes a long way. Now pour the mushroom soup over the whole thing, making sure to get it well into the gaps and fully coating the top. Add another light sprinkle of salt and pepper to the top.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Place the casserole dish one rack down from the center and bake for 2 hours or until a meat thermometer shows 150 degrees.
