Why can't I make anything that tastes really good? The flavor never enters the food, it merely sits atop it as if it were added after being prepared. No matter the method, whether it be baked, braised, barbecued, poached, or slow cooked for 8 hours, it is never satisfying.

You're a seasoned troll.
Now learn to season your food.
>>
>>7263033
You have to go into detail. Add the salt and seasoning at the beginning of (or even before) the cooking process to meld.

The thing is, if we could watch you cook something we could definitely help you. But we don't know why your food sucks without information.

You need to cut it with bread crumbs

Thank you, truly inspirational

Most of the seasonings I use already have salt in them, Should I just dump more salt on top of it?

>>7263065
I've got some chicken drumsticks here i want to bake. If i season them and throw them in the oven, they'll come out bland. For something that simple, what would you do?
>>

Use your tongue. Is it bland? Add salt. Did you oversalt it? Well, that's a life lesson to tell you how much salt is enough.

That being said, it may not be just salt.

NOT ONE OF YOUR FUCKING MORONS EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT THE OBVIOUS?

OP - GET BETTER, FRESHER INGREDIENTS.
>>
>>7263090
What may it be, then, if not salt? I've over seasoned before and seeing as how it was all stuck to the surface, I just scrape the shit off.

>>7263097
How to get fresher ingredients than the FRESH MEAT section at my local grocer? How much does it cost to raise and slaughter a pig?
>>
>>7263119
You've already said you don't add salt, so that's probably it. Could be underseasoning, could be not starting seasonings/ingredients early enough, could be lack of browning ingredients (maillard reaction), not enough alliums, etc.

take it to flavortown

Give us an example of a dish you make.

get organic, grass-fed steaks if you need steaks.
>>
>>7263033
Use salt and pepper.

Taste things as you go. Most recipes are way too conservative on the amounts of seasonings/sauces you should add and if you're tasting as you go you can adjust the flavour to suit you.

Season them with what?

Of course they'll be bland.

In the oven you get little in the way of browning. If you put salt and pepper on chicken drumsticks and bake them they'll probably come out grey and looking like death.

Marinate them in something for 4+ hours or overnight. Use strong flavours like soy sauce or lemon or mustard.

Food doesn't just get magically good because you sprinkled on some italian seasoning before baking.

Add msg,butter,salt,pepper,garlic,onions to everything savory
