Alright, who's up for a bit of OC?
Today we've prepared some country style pork ribs, which are neither from the country, nor actually ribs. They are pork, though, and they can be fucking delicious.
Ordinarily I would cook them on a grill, but since I'm living in an apartment at the moment, we're doing these in the oven.

I'm moving to a new town and I'll have to buy a bunch of new cookware. I already have a wok, some wooden cooking utensils, a george foreman grill, a set of jars for flour, rice, etc. a big-ass cast iron skillet, and a couple of random pots and pans.
What else should I have?

I love fried rice, and sometimes I try to make it at home, but I can never get it to be really flavorful.
I have a wok and an electric stove, and it actually does pretty well. I don't know if I have a very hot stove or what. I leave my rice out to get dry, and the texture is actually pretty much perfect when I do it in the wok. Maybe because I usually leave the rice out at room temperature instead of in the fridge, I don't know. I heat the wok and then pour in peanut oil, put in my garlic and some red chili flakes, and then after about 45 seconds I add the rice in. Stir it around a bit, then add some soy sauce and sherry. After it heats up a bit, I move the rice to the sides and then add the frozen veggie mix, and that heats up and I mix it with the rice. Once the veggies are warm I add my meat (I use leftovers most of the time so it doesn't need to be cooked) and stir a couple more times over a couple minutes, then plate it. I've tried adding hoisin sauce, oyster sauce, more soy sauce, salt and pepper, fish sauce...whatever I try, it seems bland. Any tips or ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
