Easy Cheesy Beefy Lasagna – You Suck at Cooking (episode 89)

Lasagna Also known as stacked pizza

Also known as flat layered spaghetti and smashed meatballs Also known as pizza casserole Also known as savory Rice Krispies squares Also known as pasta brownies Also known as mmmmmMMMMMMM YOU SUCK AT COOKING YEAH YOU TOTALLY SUCKᵀᴹ We're gonna start by browning a pound of ground beef on medium-high

And we do this because brown is the color that has the most flavor I'm adding in a teaspoon of salt here I'm gonna turn the heat down a bit And then season the beef, either in the traditional boring way with an onion, or the cutting-edge modern way with a tablespoon of chili powder, a tablespoon of cumin, and two tablespoons of red wine vinegar Now if you do season it this way, I recommend some hefty socks straps when you taste this later

If the beef gets too dry, add in some water so all those spices get soaked up like a meat sponge And resist the temptation to make tacos I'm gonna throw in three cups of basil tomato sauce, and we'll let that simmer until it's a thickness level of three And feel free to participate in the Italian tradition called "lick the measuring cup" (LICK) "Mmm, that's a damn good measuring cup

" Now I'm gonna take a container of ricotta cheese, and grate in a clove of garlic to give it some flavor Because ricotta cheese is just milk that somebody did some things to to make it the way it is Because you're mixing white on white, remember these simple steps to make sure it gets combined thoroughly 1 Whisk the mixture vigorously 2

Always mix in the edges 3 Never Give Up 4 Get serious 5 Jostle the mixture to and fro 6 Always mix the middle 7

Never get lazy 8 Give it all you got 9 Leave no molecule uncombined and 10) Enthusiastically end with exuberance Gonna add in around a cup and a half of shredded mozzarella Don't forget to repeat those steps

We're gonna take an eight inch-ish pan, I think And spread a thin layer of the sauce on the bottom to keep the noodles from sticking

We're using no-boil noodles, which are noodles that have no boils on them Then you're gonna realize that the noodles don't fit, so instead of panicking you'll try to break one with your hands and that will suck So you use the edge of the pan instead which works well Or an exacto knife Or a saw

Or a wood burning kit Or a power stone Whatever works man, just get it done Then we'll shovel some sauce on there Then we'll spread on a layer of thick garlic milk

I like to use two spoons Flatten and place Flatten and place I don't know if this technique is good or not, but it does make me feel professional-ish and smug, which is what cooking is all about Make sure you're putting the noodles in flat and not this way

Not this way Not this way Not this way Not this way And definitely not this way

This isn't the time to be a maverick We've known for several years now that laying the noodles flat just works More sauce More ricotta Noodles

Sauce Ricotta I might have used too much ricotta on that first layer Or maybe you don't need ricotta on the top layer since we're finishing it with mozzarella Just create as many layers as you feel like

Don't listen to someone who says: "if it's not at least three layers, it's not a real lasagna", or, "if the lasagna isn't a minimum of three layers, I will" "destroy you and everything you love and stand for so help me God, amen" Then we'll create a sacred geometry toothpick beam support structure to hold up the tin roof, which we put in place to keep the moisture in so the noodles cook properly, and also to protect the lasagna from rain Ondo's on three fundo, and we'll cook that for around 40 minutes or so Peace be with you While we're waiting, let's try to build a house of cards out of the noodles, which is tricky because they're pretty slippery, but also they have ridges you can take advantage

of and then we'll try playing the world's shittiest game of Jenga Oh! So close! Then we'll remove that foil, up the temperature a bit, and throw it in for another 10 minutes And also with you Ah man, this lasagna is busting at the scene with lasagna-ish goodness Then you want to let it rest for 20 minutes before cutting it, so it doesn't turn into a bowl of slop

Which is a great time to prepare our letters and numbers Then we'll cut it into a grid and lay out our organizational system, so that anyone can easily select the piece they want without confusion Also you can play a game of lasagna battleship I'll have B-1 (BOOM) You sunk my apparently buoyant lasagna

Also use this hack for anyone who thinks there aren't enough layers and just stack two pieces Boom, thicc lasagna And now I'll stack one more piece so I can create the perfect clickbait thumbnail And I hope you can forgive me for this deception, but no, I did it to teach you not to believe everything you see on the internet, or to punish you for thinking that a bigger lasagna is a better lasagna Maybe it's time to give short lasagna a chance

Maybe it's time to realize you shouldn't judge a lasagna by its height Only by its girth Amen Hey speaking of lasagna, why don't we give this a try? (MUNCH) (THUD) Mmm damn that's a good lasagna And damn I got good taste in socks This video is sponsored by HelloFresh, which makes conquering the kitchen possible with easy yummy recipes Not like Game of Thrones conquering, more like, uh, "learning to cook better" conquering
