I find if you braze parsnips with beef fat and let them caramelize it takes away the bland taste of the parsnip it takes on the flavour of the the beef.

JPEG-James says:

Can this be made in a pressure cooker like the instant pot?

3:45 the mushroom reappears 😀

The sound experiment explains why you love a dish when eating out, then you get the recipe and at home it's just not the same. Layers of the experience are missing.

I will be honest, before she said red potatoes I thought those were apple chunks 😅😅

Anyone know how I can share just the chocolate tasting segment?

Funny Girl says:

how can one make a stew like described but without wine and still taste good? not really a replacement for the taste of wine, but just so that the dish is well done. (sometimes one doesn't eat, drink alcohol for taste reason or medical reason or religeous reasong – and as far as I know from the last testings a few years ago, the alcohol taste my reduce, but the alcohol content doesn't)

Cooking it in the oven to prevent scorching. So simple, yet utterly brilliant.

I bought a three pack at Wal-mart about 2 years ago. All three EXPLODED within a week while being used. Glass everywhere and in my face and clothes. I WILL NEVER PURCHASE PYREX AGAIN. I only buy pyrex from thrift stores in nice 70's colors. If they haven't detonated by now they're probably safe.
