I don’t know about you, but when I lite my grill for some summertime BBQ-in, I feel naked without a beer. You can’t grill meats without some tasty refreshment, right? Well, have you ever spilled a little brew on whatever you’re cooking? Or have you at least been tempted to?
Did you know that cooking with alcohol enhances the flavors already present in your dish? It’s true! Beers and liquors have other uses besides lubricating dinner conversations and making intolerable guests seem entertaining, especially when added to your meal.
Chocolate is the lifeblood of many people. It cheers them up when they’re sad and keeps them going when they’re tired. Food companies do all kinds of things to add to this sweet treat (from sea salt to hot peppers), but what people really go nuts for is Nutella (I had to do it).
Here are We Got Food Covered, we’re all fans of meat. Chicken, steak, pork, shellfish, you name it. We’ve even tried some uncommon meats like ostrich, snail, shark and more. As much as we love eating animals, and as many times as we posit that vegetables are what food eats, sometimes it behooves even the most voracious of carnivores to eat their veggies. And, dare we say it, maybe even a vegetarian dish or two.
Sorry avocado, you had a good run, but there’s a new type of toast making waves in the brunch circuit. Sweet potato toast is set and poised to be the new go-to clean breakfast, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Sticky, messy and saucy – what’s not to love about a good rack of ribs? We’ll tell you what: nothing. There’s nothing not to love about a delicious, meaty and well seasoned rack of ribs. But let’s face it, at the end of the day, it all comes down to what you cover them in.
Grilling a steak is widely accepted as the best way to cook a steak. There’s something about those grill marks and the juicy red center that just makes your mouth water. Sometimes, though, you don’t have time to let the charcoal heat up. You’re out of propane. It’s raining. Your grill is covered in snow. You’re too lazy to fire up the grill. Whatever the reason, have no fear because you can still cook a scrumptious steak without firing up a grill – and you can do it like renowned chef Alton Brown.
Ah yes, the age old debate of what’s better: french toast or waffles? It’s one of life’s tougher choices, to be sure, and it usually comes down to where you’re ordering the food from or who’s making it. It could also depend on what you’re in the mood for or who you’re eating with. Regardless, it’s a choice that most of us find ourselves struggling with from time to time.
These days, people are always looking for healthy alternatives to classic ingredients and try to fill their diets with “superfoods.” Quinoa checks both of those boxes. This healthy grain is typically a suitable substitute for less healthy rice and is categorized as a superfood. That doesn’t mean it’ll give you the ability to fly or see through walls, but it is a nutrient rich food that’s especially good for your health.
Here at We Got Food Covered, we don’t hide our love for chicken wings. We’ve told you where to get them cheap, how to make them yourself, where to find the most expensive wings in the world, and more. But, we haven’t actually reviewed any wings or wing sauces (yet).
