I've gotta do that. I've been on an Al pastor pulled pork kick, next is Korean bbq then.

Yea it's definitely worth it, and the pork even comes out great in a crockpot if you feel like making it an easy dinner. Can llterally just throw it all in, and decide whether you want to go w/ the kimchi or carrots for the topping (I like both, but the carrots were surprisingly good. I'd have to double check but i'm pretty sure it's literally just the raw shredded carrots with rice vinegar).

Been on a crockpot taco kick lately using chicken or steak with packets of sauce. So easy so good.

Might have to try Korean style...went through a phase where I had gochujang container basically untouched in the fridge for a year +

You guys should try japanese, which is way more than sushi and tempura...try sukiyaki: meat/veg simmered in tentsuyu sauce, a mix of shoyu, dashi, and mirin with kombu...that will brighten up a cold winters night

That does all sound great! While we're on a slowcook/crockpot talk, I'll add this:

carnitas is one of my favorite meals, so I decided to try making it myself, w/ everything from scratch, and it came out unreal. I did the meat in the slowcooker (all kinds of spices, including some cinnamon sticks and an orange cut in half. Remove both when done cooking. It sounds weird, but it definitely adds to the flavor w/out tasting like orange and cinnamon). Once the meat is done, shred it up, and then just fry it up real quick in a pan/skillet with some oil. I also made all the salsa/pico de gallo, toppings and tortillas (and sides, like rice, beans, etc) homemade, but probably isnt necessary.

I intermittent fast so reading that after not eating all day...I'm salivating.

Another one is Shoyu Chicken, that's Hawaiian style with boneless skinless thighs, equal parts shoyu (one of the few soy products I eat because I think everything in it gets chemically rendered into aminos), ginger, garlic, brown sugar.

I use frontera sauce packets for tacos which I think are among the least soy, weird chemicals etc, and then siete taco shells for the same reason.

Somewhere along the line most of the food got replaced with garbage and flavor compounds to trick you into not noticing.

I prefer smoking it for that crispy bark and wood flavor.

Oh hell yea! A smoker is the first thing I’m buying once we’re no longer renting, but until then I’ll have to stick with frying my carnitas lol
