How do you do your Mongolian BBQ?
My meat base is always steak and sausage. No chicken because lol and no seafood because I hate it. Next up is a layer of sliced zucchini, bell peppers, and onions, then baby corn (if they have it). Then I pile on the cilantro, and, on top of that, pasta, if it's at the bar, to hold the cilantro down.
Finally I get broccoli heads and shove them around the rim of the bowl. Sauces chosen are usually of the garlic/pepper/hot variety - something red and spicy. Finish off with a generous sprinkling of black pepper.
I always get both a bowl of rice AND tortillas, to make a bunch of little mongolian BBQ tacos.

Do you ever recall specific lines from books, about people eating, that made you hungry? And still make you hungry whenever you think about them?
"They were charred on the outside, raw on the inside, and totally delicious." - from "The Body", by Stephen King
"... and the lamb chops were really tasty. I dipped the bone in some Ketchup and chewed away." - from "Superfudge," by Judy Blume (and yeah she capitalized "Ketchup")
Chocolate chip cookie recipes = fail

Hey, co/ck/s -
I'm trying to make chocolate chip cookies, but the recipes I've tried suck. I'll list the ingredients, followed by how the cookies sucked, in hopes one of you will tell me how to make them edible.
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup cake flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup chocolate chips
No taste whatsoever, had to bake them for nearly 45 minutes before they would even start to brown. Even my mother wouldn't eat them, and she'll eat anything with chocolate in it.
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
These actually came out well, except that they tasted like blocks of salt.
I measured properly, did everything as directed, but clearly the people who made these recipes have no clue that a chocolate chip cookie is supposed to be sweet.
WTF can I do to salvage either recipe, or do you have a better recipe I should use instead?

Hey /ck/. Lately I've been on a chicken/tuna fish salad binge. I can't get enough of the stuff, but I really want to spice it up. Currently, my recipe is as follows:
finely diced onions
These are all on the spot ingredients I've been using, but I'm unsatisfied with the taste. Any good ways to spice it up? Preferably a nice a fresh taste, with some crunch, like adding lettuce.
HEY MOOTYKINS, MAKE THIS A STICKY!

Hello and welcome to the food and cooking section. This might be one of the most useful boards on all of 4chan, as everyone needs to eat, and this place might help you seriously improve your life just a little bit. This sticky will hopefully answer some of your basic questions and some norms round here.
>TEACH ME HOW TO COOK!
Fuck you. Being an actual cook - not even a professional chef - is so goddamn easy I can't even express the jimmy rustling that occurs deep down inside when people say they don't know how. Can you follow simple basic directions that aren't much more difficult than walking and chewing gum? Yes? Cool, you can cook. Go to Youtube and type in "how do I make [insert meal here] or [do technique XYZ]" for what you need. If you want to just learn how to get better at just being a cook, watch Food Network and Travel Channel and you'll pick up a few things.
/ck/ is not your personal cookbook. There are tons of websites out there with a near infinite number of recipes and variations. Google is your friend, but so is this sticky, so here are a few
Have ingredients ABC but don't know what to make? www.supercook.com
Simple recipe vertical infographics? ck.booru.org
Mostly recipe sites only http://allrecipes.com - www.foodnetwork.com/recipes-and-cooking/index.html - www.food.com/recipes - www.epicurious.com/recipesmenus - www.myrecipes.com www.americastestkitchen.com (this place has many videos, too)
Sites with both recipes and more generic articles about food - www.seriouseats.com - www.bonappetit.com
>I'm poor, how do I eat cheap
Buy bulk. Rice, beans and some spices are like $.25 per serving. Wheel and deal at farmer's markets near closing time. Clip coupons, drink water, get the customer card.
