Waiter.......There's A Guy In My Soup!
May 2, 2012 3:40pm CST
HA HA! Actually this discussion has nothing to do with waiters or soup......I just thought it was a funny title... Anyhoo, this discussion is about choosing the proper seasonings when cooking a meal. I just have a couple of questions....but first let me set the scenario: You work for a company that supplies cooking equipment to the military and other groups that have to live and work in harsh, desolate conditions. One particular black-ops paramilitary group has requested an order consisting of several solar powered ovens and a shipping container full of nearly every spice available, dehydrated of course. You agree to accompany the shipment.....really just to get out of work and go on a airplane ride. It's just you and the pilot, we'll call him Stu. Anyways, before you reach your destination, the plane goes down and crashes on a deserted island....before going down the pilot sends out a mayday to your company but is told a rescue attempt can not be made for at least 3 months. The 2 of you find a source of fresh water but there's absolutely no food to be found on this island.....no fish...no animals...no edible plants...NOTHING! So a month passes and you're STARVING...and Stu's not looking too good (actually he's starting to look real good...kind of like in the cartoons where the guy starts to look like a giant hot dog). A couple of days later, Stu dies. Even though it's something you don't really want to do, you know there's NO WAY you can survive another 2 months without eating something......soooooo.......you break out one of the solar ovens and start giving Stu a nice braise followed by a slow roasting. So my questions: What kind of spices do you use? Red wine or white? What part do you eat first? Please tell me......I'm hungry.....

Well your not going to be able to eat stu all at once & you don't want him to go bad. I'd recomend making stu jerky. Most of the meat would be good for that. The brain & other organs should be eaten fresh & seasoned to taste. Try something different each meal.

Just before I start the fire, an ocean liner came by and rescued us (me from cannibalism and Stu from becoming Stew, bless him), reporters were onboard and I ended up writing an international bestseller, "How I Was 1 Step Short of Becoming A Cannibal - Real Life Account".

he he oh my gosh help Thats cannablism how can one do that? I really do not think I could go for roast stu unless of course I am on hthis island but surely if the island has fresh water it has to have plant life. I think I would search for some edible plant life and bury stu also as its an island there's water like an ocean and in the ocean are fish of all sorts. I would fashion a fishing pole and a line of some sort and fish and live on fish. Let Stu be buried and lie in peace.with water and fish and somr vegetation I would not die but also would not be eating human flesh.Perhaps you did not make a thorough investigation of the vegetation and I would try various plants to find something edible.Sp I use all kinds of spices on my various fish I ha ve caught and try not to think of roast Stu or stuburgers or stu soup. fish is good for you. and I wo uld also make fires to alert any passing ships or planes so I would not stay there for months.someone will find me and rescue me.

Normally I would say a rump roast, but since presumably he hasn't eaten in a month, I would say a belly roast would probably be the best place to start, especially since that should be the most tender. Then again, if he was very muscular and did not have a lot of belly fat, then I guess that would not work too well.
