    The most basic of examples: slice it about 1/8in thick and fry it up til' reddish brown on each side. Cut that up and put it aside.
    Make a box of Mac n Cheese, toss that in after it's finished.
    Best meal you can make under $6.

            Mouthfeel has been unironically adopted by the culinary world for some reason. Same way that "umami" replaces savory sometimes.

              Texture turned into mouth feel
              Savory has turned into umami.

              Pretentious shit if you ask me.

              I can forgive "umami" because savoury traditionally incorporates salty and Hispanicy, but we made do for years using the word "savoury" or sometimes "flavourful" to also mean what is now meant by umami, even though that's the culinary equivalent of calling a square a "cuboid". Adopting the word therefore does solve a specific problem.

              When someone says a dish needs to be more flavourful, there arises the question "what kind of flavour? salty? Hispanicy? sweet?" But when someone says a dish needs to have more umami, we know what is meant.

              But there is no point at all to "mouthfeel". How else do you sense texture if not by touch? How else do you touch food if not with your mouth?

              When someone says a dish has good texture, obviously what is meant is how it feels in one's mouth. How many food reviews have you encountered describing the texture of a hotdog held in one's hand, as opposed to its texture in one's mouth?

                A cursory google search tells me that mouthfeel is more than just texture. If you were describing how sex feels would only describe the physical of your cock on your partner's vaginal walls or would you also be describing the wetness, warmth, smell, and even grip of her vagina?

                Mouthfeel incorporates the whole sensation of the food in your mouth whereas texture is just the physical property of the food.

        Indeed. But nostalgia is a powerful thing, people love what they were used to eating when they were growing up. Nothing beats mama's cooking even if mama was an objectively terrible cook. You also need to understand that the USA has had processed food for a long time. Advertisements have been lying to people and convincing them that cooking is pointless drudgery and instead everyone should just buy X brand products instead for decades here. Cooking skills are a lost art these days, which is ironic given that anyone can learn from world-class experts for free thanks to the internet. But no, you still have retards like

          The "homecooking" or "made from scatch" is an argument from an infinitely moving goalpost, as are many of the DIY or trad tard arguments.
          I could bake a loaf of bread using flour, yeast, milk, and salt from the grocery store. But I didn't grow the grain, milk the cow, mine the salt, or use let the yeast propagate naturally, so it's not really homemade.
          You're one of those fags that makes one meal a month from you're $500 whole foods grocery haul thinking smugly to yourself that you're doing "real" homecooking when it couldn't be further from the truth.

          I know how to cook and I support myself and my family by cooking. It's a rarity for me to allow my family to eat fast food on any occasion other than a road trip. In the last month I've made my own sourdough bread and homemade pizza, French onion soup, Penne al Vodka, German potato salad, butter chicken and dal, chicken fried rice, slow cooked venison stew, ect.

          I love spam. The sodium is fucking atrocious and objectively it's completely gross when it slides out of the can, but sliced thin and fried to a golden crisp, glazed with a bit of apple cider vinegar, black pepper, and honey, then put on top some scrambled eggs with some melted Gouda on top, and crunchy salad greens and thin sliced tomato on a lightly toasted bagel, is fucking awesome. And as for nostalgia, I grew up in a Muslim household and never ate spam until I was 20ish after I could finally ditch the religious horseshit. It's heartier and more filling than bacon and a lot easier to cook as well, and fits well into both broadly western and some Asian cuisines. It also is an excellent camping food. Obviously it's a once-in-a-while guilty pleasure rather than a staple, but for all of my education in cooking, I fucking love it.

              I find most East Asians are more receptive to the stinkier varieties of cheese. Being a gwao-lai that actually enjoys durian fruit, I think I get why. My dad worked in oil and gas for 40 years and when my family would host Chinese or other Asian clients we would usually cook Cajun food for dinner. They always loved it, lots of rice and Hispanice I suppose. Arabs would get fajitas or other Tex-Mex, and for latinos and Europeans we would do either steaks or BBQ brisket because YEE-HAW Texas!

I remember one group of clients from Sinopec that were flabbergasted that a white family in America owned a rice cooker. I think they were less fazed by the AR-15s and other rifles we owned than the fact that my mom owned a giant fuck off big rice cooker. Oh, the pineapple upside down cake was hit too.

        Spam is actually not bad at all. I understand the revulsion to its nature as a less ideal food, but it lasts for years if well kept and is full of fats and protein. It’s extremely cheap and great to keep for emergency food in the event of disaster. What’s more, it’s really not that bad tasting at all. It’s something I typically only eat when I make spam musubi, but I keep a stock of it in case of disaster along with other shelf-stable foods.

      >under $6
      Go to costco. Get side of salmon for $20. Cut into 5ths. Pan fry salmon in olive oil, dill, salt, pepper. Squirt half a lemon over salmon. Cook 1/2 cup of short grain rice in rice cooker, instapot, or slow cooker. Mix up some teriyaki sauce (cheap as fuck and easy to make). Whole thing takes 10 min to cook and is just way better tasting and better for you. $6 and eat like an adult instead of an 8 year old fat kid.

      Also i haven't seen spam in an mre ever.

        Fake American detected. Spam is a national staple food because of tradition alone, and a side of salmon costs way less than 20. Did you know we have trained bears that catch salmon for us and also dance?

          Texan, actually. It doesn’t change the fact that spam is kids food or food for people who don’t have their shit together. Kind of like fast food. You’re either buying for a brood of kids because lets face it sometimes you just don’t have the energy to see your recently cleaned kitchen get dirty again (if you have kids you know this feeling), or because you’re hammered and need some salty ass slop to sober up. College kids also get a pass. Otherwise you can eat better for cheaper with less time, almost always.

        Also the only reason you go to costco is to go buy in bulk; otherwise paying 120 yearly and dealing with the costco conga line just to go get "a few things" is a bit daft.
        >Which I won't do because I get everything at once retard
        and there is where your whole "meal for 6 dollars" thing falls apart, because really you went to the store on a 120 dollar run and in the context of even a week are storing a lot of what you've bought away in cabinets and freezers. This might be great for you to neurotically plan out a month of meals ahead of time but for other people it's probably easier to just go to Winco once a week and pick up a couple cans of spam for quick breakfast meat for the week.

          I think you'll find that once you get used to metric you won't have to try to find divisions in the first place.
          Furthermore, you can absolutely think in terms of half a cm or a quarter of a centimeter, it's just not really necessary.
          Figuring out what 3mm look like is easy because 1mm is a known length, but if we take the same number in imperial and ask for 30% of an inch people will call you a retard for even asking simply because the system gets people used to thinking in simple divisions while in metric there's always a new meter if you divide one by 10. Doesn't help much with imagining things but it's useful for math.
          If you want to imagine distances the classic mm/cm/m/km scale in your head does just fine.
          I'd argue better than the imperial system tbf, but I'm sure my own bias is at least part of the reason for that.

              Guys, I know we all like being conciliatory and nice, but we all know the difference in processed food lies in how it's processed. While Americanseat quite a lot more processed food and somehow even manage not to eat any fiber quite often, high fructose corn syrup and countless ingredients and processing techniques that aren't even legal in Europe are the real issue.
              An apple isn't processed and having them rest for months in an oxygen deprived warehouse in the EU is bad, but having the same apple in questionable chemicals in a warehouse in the US is worse.

Kraft Foods called their Kraft Singles as "Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Food" until the FDA gave a warning in December 2002 stating that the product could not be legally labeled as "Pasteurized Processed Cheese Food" due to the inclusion of milk protein concentrates. Kraft complied with the FDA order by changing the label to the current Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product.[5]

The campaign was lambasted for its implications that each slice contained the same amount of calcium as a five-ounce glass of milk and also more calcium than imitation cheese slices, which eventually led to a ruling by the Federal Trade Commission in 1992 that ordered Kraft to stop making false claims in its advertising.

                The American middle and upper class has plenty of access to whole foods. They're so surfeit with (relative) luxury they are now playing the "conscionable" game - oh, I'm so rich, I am willing to pay more to ensure the producer of the foodstuff in X poor country where it comes from gets more profit (Fairtrade), or is kind to animals, or is organic, etc etc. Which is a luruxy poorer nations cannot afford. They also eat so much that obesity and various diseases relating to over-consumption is the main problem, not undernutrition.

                But the dubiously-processed trash that American poorfags eat such as in

                The fact that you don't know why your minced meat releases so much water when fried or that you can't do any basic cooking at all is just the cherry on top.

                Strain it into a cup and wait for it to cool, there's some water, there's also a lot of grease because you know, rendered fat and whatnot.
                If you buy store brand meat that's what you get, if you buy better meat that walmart also sells, you don't get that. If you buy cheap tires they bust if you don't buy cheap tires they last. Simple as.

                Guys, I know we all like being conciliatory and nice, but we all know the difference in processed food lies in how it's processed. While Americanseat quite a lot more processed food and somehow even manage not to eat any fiber quite often, high fructose corn syrup and countless ingredients and processing techniques that aren't even legal in Europe are the real issue.
                An apple isn't processed and having them rest for months in an oxygen deprived warehouse in the EU is bad, but having the same apple in questionable chemicals in a warehouse in the US is worse.
                Also wtf is "american cheese" when only 50%of ot actually has to be cheese?

                >processing techniques that aren't even legal in Europe
                False. The same processing technique used to treat apples is also used in the EU and UK.

                The thing about American food everyone ignores is that there is an extremely wide (lol) range of options. You can get cheap processed shit that will give you enough calories to function, or you can get fine artisanal organic shit certified by whatever arbitrary organization. The cost difference isn't that big either, it's just a matter of taste.

                Whole Foods isn't the only place that sells organic food in the US. My town has multiple Fresh Thyme locations plus a local market that specializes in fresh/organic stuff. Of course, it is a hipster-ish college town, but tons of rural folk from the outlying countryside come to work and shop here so AFAIC they have only themselves to blame if they buy their groceries at Walmart.

        What rations? Canned foods haven't been in US rations in decades.

        Where are you finding Spam for $1.50? The cheapest I've seen it is $3.00 at Dollar General. It's $4 and change at most grocery stores unless it's on sale for like $1-1.50 off. If you get the store brand it can be cheaper, but it's one of the few products where the store brand usually isn't as good.

    when I conscripted in to the IDF they were in the process of phasing that shit out. our version was called "Luf", it was pretty horrible and almost no one would touch that shit, out of a whole company only me and like 2 others would eat that. since we had to return all closed tins after training, the base ran a huge surplus of that shit, so much so that each week there was a day they would serve fried spam as the main meat course in the mess hall.
    out in the field, we had these icecream trucks called "Gazlan" - literally Stealer, fucks were price gougers, but you could use those cans to barter with them instead of money.

                no clue how common it is world wide, but in the IDF its very common.
                we usually use squares of toilet paper, you want it quiet thick, so the lower part will soak up the oil and the upper part remains mostly dry so it can catch fire, you light the tips on fire and let it burn, ideally until it burns it self out. you then just throw away the paper and the top of the tuna in the can gets a nice crust and the lower parts simply heat up.

                we usually do it our selves, adds some flavor to the blandness of eating tuna all day every day

    in WW2, spam was a B-ration
    meaning: it lasted long without going bad and could be served as a replacement for fresh meat when spoilage was a concern
    technically not meant for field use but could be used as a C-ration replacement if forced to as the food is edible straight out of the can

    soldiers hated it for how often it was served but ended up eating it when they got home anyways
    thanks to inertia, it remains in widespread use

    Because the military is run by a secret Hawaiian cabal

  34. 1 month ago
    Anonymous

    Because it's cheap and easy to get, transport and cook and eat at bases. Lots of countries ended up incorporating it after WWII because it was easy to get from the US for cheap, and lots of people incorporated it into their cuisine because it was the only kind of meat they could easily get, and now in a lot of places but particularly where people live around (primarily US) military bases it's as much of a staple food as rice or flour, with the spam usually being a budget ingredient for day-to-day food.

    As you can tell whether or not people like it is a contentious topic, but mostly comes down to whether or not you really know how to cook (like actually using the pot meat as an ingredient or marinating it instead of just fucking frying it), whether you can accept the taste and texture (it just tastes like ham but like I mentioned you can marinate it, and the texture is fixed by actually cooking it), and whether or not you can accept eating the processed leftovers from already processed ham (look, if you're some pretentious fuck who has an issue with this, consider that this uses all of the animal instead of throwing away a not un-sizeable portion "because it's gross," and allows even poor people to get meat into their diet, which is a good thing). There are however always personal hang-ups; a lot of older people in Britain hate spam because it was the only readily available and non-rationed meat- meaning that they'd regularly be eating the stuff. Being in a country where fucking no one knows how to cook anything but greasy breakfasts, that would probably suck and make you never want to touch the stuff again. My mom hates spam for a similar reason, her family being farmers on the Idaho plain Spam was usually the meat that'd be used instead of actual ham, and her dad didn't like Hispanices of any kind so that usually meant just fried spam.
    Basically whether you like spam or not usually comes down to whether you can be creative and actually can cook.
