And elect perfect this time of year you're going to watch a football game like common to do tomorrow or note tonight are from our act may have to fix them out of there but let's talk about. I'm as I was summoned through. Beyond Trace. That's where I first saw a bunch of things that that I like to make you have a post a skirt steak recipe. And your marinade is like. One of the top dogs and its discount all the ingredients that make. A little hint of an Asian touch but more importantly it's tender rising and it's Liverpool the only difference I do and I'm make that is.

Because it and put on spam and or are sick and aid program that's struggled with just earlier that I can multi purpose. Scott you can kind of change it up right how you like to eat highly of people to let it is. Like you know yeah they're just an idea in new interior armed bank. And that's the fund it and I can't wait you don't are you read ones on comments that suburban because. Steak and urban networks but if you're gonna use it right on boneless skinless chicken breasts that's too much. I'm. And this kind of touches on a number of different things Tuscan meat though praised him white wine and people go to you braised meatloaf. This is totally different tell me about that I mean it is. You know what's great about it but make the great spot it very I mean our pipeline which I'm like you let me. Can be a little draw I have time and I don't like it that plain old tomato product that China's one I think all of our interest banks now are. I came up with it depends typical white wine is not the master of fourteen mushrooms Bennett. So that it becomes kind of a elevated meet up at actively up their act as bluntly. Ingredient at the Christian ago I met her panties with a little more. Packet act like your opposite a little more via. It that white line and made up is because our big thing that the great morning. And it gets some of the meat Jews. At very that meat it is well I do a meatloaf on the grill and a Spanish cause royal. And and I based of a lot with the meat yeah. You know the way it has and figure out. Well my wife and I both took a lot and I'm. Like cooking outside. So I see a trend and they're there seems to be. A good bit of Asian influence. Whenever it is. Why did you do that. I just like of the flavor I loved ginger garlic gather which is. Mentioned is pretty much our Asian wrecked it and I love the labor. While he and the Wii which is a typical you know Asian combinations. Out. And I like the preparation is they've early quick cooking food that back. Not lie in parades things are arrogant I like at cook because. The idea here during the week and just try to get there quick there's the a lot of flavor but doesn't take much time. Couldn't agree more about talk about ice crusted lamb chops with balls summit glasses. Is it just me or do you think that some people steer away from lamb because they owns two gaming nobody like slam yet. Yeah. I just got back I in the united Italy and his arm in a class. Different ones that they were accurate in saying and I think what it was but people are over a plan. And I think when you're over cook anything it of course is not a lovely but Graham is technically has. A convert it when you cook it well and I it'd medium rare. I don't I don't kinda. This is a lovely way to Kuwait really should be armed and I think panicked a bit different that land and it gave Papa had. Lamb that you're you know what you grow up maybe you've had been very right. Lamb that you know maybe somebody mommy can take it. That be could be kind of as I'm flavor yet. Yeah well. I'm. In the back in the side dishes. And I was looking sea of you know the Asian team have kept recurring at least in subtle manner and have a little bit of that with a spicy ginger dressing for steamed spinach. But I as a kid we always put vinegar on top of spinach and award at the same thing. Tom and then and then you have something that I just I just nearly eleven Max mine. Co own producer technician duty here in the studio. I said man do you like cauliflower and goes no way it should be banned and he's rattled a few other vegetables all of which I love acting and so interesting. Your colleague Faris BC does something bit. Man it's like such a new flavor for so many people when you put a hint of Currie and and use slow roast anything in the oven. Yet the great way to look at. We have caught fire is temporary now that the vote and be very plan but I think it you Rhode did it act but it really. Changes like you know anything because can you haven't Polytechnic analyzing it happened at of people are without. But it brought the brought her at the cards are aiming for a big red B. It a whole thing becomes differ and I think that caught our need an opera becomes very. It is our our oil on the Currie and it it hasn't completely different textures that intact that. And I think we use our oven for vegetables today more than we did. Even two years ago about the and if you're one of the things that might technician maxim mentioned that he doesn't like is Pete's. And I think we all probably have a a beats you up storeroom we are little kids and moms and you know dessert theory your brains. Gray. And and you couldn't. Really upshot of these people held a lot of other ways to what could be there another bit that we knew wrote them. They changed dramatically they become caramelized and quite concentrated and they had this wonder well. Sugar from the them and then they become a little bit. Different maker text or not but Hopkins. Not that it would you like they can be when you boil them and I think our. With amateur. Jar where you can it meant that. When you wrote them.
