      For the food you discard just give it to a homeless person they would eat it.

      Thank god ... Brad is a great cook but this video doesnt do justice on his personality, and i believe all of that is what makes his n vinny's videos the best.

            Why waste all that meat for a stock? How about you just use your Thanksgiving turkey carcass

                        I eat that cooked meat cold with thinly sliced onions, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and celery salad. I do the same if it's red meat for the broth. My father used to call it "lesso"

                          tip to use up the meat: mince the meat and the vegetables really finely, make a thick bechamel and add it to the meat and veggies, throw in some herbs, salt and pepper, bread crumbs to thicken the mixture and finally some parmesan for flavor. form little balls then coat them in flour, egg and breadcrumbs. fry them until golden brown. serve with whatever sauce you want (i like a fresh tomato sauce). it also works with beef from beef stock or leftover roastbeef.

                                    This is obviously brad before Vinny. Brad's still good, but he's 3x better with Vinny's editing.

                                        Whoever decided to scrap the background music in all videos going forward, was an absolute genius. I wanna watch all the older videos but I can't stand the music :( its just so distracting and doesn't feel like the ba videos I know and love.

                                            If you have a dog, give the rest to them. They will love it!

                                              The leftovers from the stock would make for great dog food, just make sure that there are no small bones in there!

                                                      Love this. Surprising how much the smoked ham hock adds to the flavor. And I agree, the only things in that pot that taste good after simmering for 4hrs are the stock and the mushrooms. My chickens won’t even eat it.

                                                                Never discard stock meat! It *is* flavorless and dry, but dogs love it mixed in with their brown pellets! It makes for a shiny coat. But, if you used mushrooms, add the meat sparingly. It's not good for doggy kidneys. Cheers!
