So what are the "correct" toppings for a roast beef sandwich? I usually order mine with everything (mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, peppers, cheese, oil, vinegar, seasoning, etc.) because I like all of those toppings and I get them on everything. But earlier today I was at a sandwich shop with a couple of hipster dipshit acquaintances who sort of condescendingly joked with one another about my apparently "pleb" choice of toppings.
Is this true? Is there a certain way that people generally agree is the correct way to get a roast beef? Or are they completely full of shit? I mean hell I got my roast beef w cheddar lettuce and tomato and they act like I'm putting ranch dressing and chili on top of a steak.
Soooooo.....what IS the "right" way to eat a roast beef sandwich?

Why does my pan smoke so much when I'm searing at a medium-high heat? I was cooking at about a 5 (of 10) on my electric stove, and my cast iron pan (which I've seasoned with grapeseed oil SPECIFICALLY for the high smoke point) smokes so much. Cooked a steak the Good Eats way, except when I do it, smoke pours off the pan.
By Alton Brown's method, he uses Canola Oil with a smoke point of 435, and he finishes his steak off in a 500 degree oven. I use a grapeseed oil with a 420 smoke point, and I get a shit ton of smoke. What gives?

Today I did something I haven't done in a long time: used a loaf pan.
Wanted some sandwich bread, so whipped up a quick rye walnut dough leavened by commercial yeast, and dug out two loaf pans.
Bread turned out nicely. Very light, chewy, and consistent crumb. Acceptable depth of flavor provided by the rye. Delicate and crisp crust, thanks to the oiled loaf pans.
Anybody else out there do any bread baking recently?

So my ex gf bought me a slow cooker since I made some pretty badass pulled pork in her old one before, but I fucking fail at cooking chicken in it.
Erry time I cook chicken in it, whether it be a whole chicken, a cut up chicken or just breasts, frozen or fresh, it comes out fucking tasting like tuna. God dammit, what should I do?
Also, any cheap slow cooker recipes?
