    Dear Chef John,
    I've been binge watching your channel for 3 days and bookmarked enough recipes to occupy me for a few years. Amazing content. I love it!!!
    I haven't seen a place where to submit wishes so I figured that the comment section of your latest video is a good start.

    Like me, you seem to like stews (which, statistically, is probably a conclusion highly biased by my recipe choices…)
    I have no problem with lamb/porc/chicken or even veal stews but I've been struggling with beef stews recently. Last time was with a Goulash.

    And indeed you mention something in your own goulash video: there seems to be a moment when those tough stew cuts become tender but, conversely to what is happening with other meats, overcooking will make them tough again. (note: I usually use short ribs or chuck)

    I've lost confidence in my ability to do a Boeuf Bourguignon again. I need your help, Chef !!
    How to prevent this phenomenon? Is it like Squid? Can extremely long cooking time bring me back to more consistent results?

    Cheers

    You dont serve crispy breakfast spuds with an omelet or scrambled egg, you want poached large eggs or sunny side up duck eggs, crack that yoke all over those crispy bad boys. Americans, honestly………. ?

    Thank you for this! I was finally able to make crispy soft home fries, rather than soggy and burnt!

    Ah, food memories 🙂 This recipe is actually pretty close to the way my grandmother would make fried potatoes. Instead of steaming or microwaving, she'd save the leftovers from dinner in the fridge. Then, on a Saturday, she'd slice them all up, tossed an artery clogging amount of real butter in a skillet and fried the heck out of 'em. She'd let them go until they were a deep brown color and almost hard enough to stop a bullet. Great with a little mayo or her home made applesauce.

    chef john, quick question! While i love the use of the microwave to save time and all, wouldnt these potatoes maybe be crispier/fluffier if you steamed the potatoes? Im gonna try it tomorrow i think, first ill microwave it with your recipe then next time ill try steaming 🙂

    Cudo's Chef John! I am a novice cook who has been following for a while now and just finished eating this made with my own two hands!! These are by far the best home fries I've ever had…let alone I've ever made! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Little by little with your help I'm getting past the 'water boiling' stage of cooking! Your video's are just the best along with your humor! I may be 60 yrs old, but when I grow up I want to cook just like you!

    Perfect recipe Chef John, and your timing is awesome. We got a ham in the fridge and this seems like a perfect paring. Dinner is saved 🙂

    Was not disappointed that cayenne showed up again. How much is the cayenne cartel paying you?
