But when I add it to my fried rice, I guess I don't use enough for it to taste right, 'cause I tried it last night.
See, I made fried rice, and didn't use much salt in the "frying the veggies" step. I thought I'd have plenty of salty goodness in the soy sauce, and I'd be set.
Nope. Adding only one or two Tablespoons of soy sauce to 6 cups of rice and about the same of veggies is, it turns out, not quite enough to make it taste amazing. Looks amazing, just missing the flavor deally. If I add more, though, my food will be Black.
Which is really not all that appetizing.
Fixed it, though.
Salt and sweet chili sauce to the rescue. Not *quite* the taste I was going for, but oh well.
Now I know I need a medium soy sauce for actually cooking with, and I'll save the dark stuff for dipping tasties in.
Anyone decided if they're playing this latest cheap food game with me? $1/lb ingredients, no limit on number, type, or total budget? Sounds like fun to me...
Oh, yeah.... sad to report that the TD does *not* have a shiny new home. He's still lumbering (goofily) around Mom's house, being pounced by Bear. Poor TD.
