Hey guys, I need American recipes.
This summer, I will be having a Japanese exchange student coming to stay at my house, and they want to try traditional American food. Please grace me with your gift of cooking

Put some good, thin-sliced cheddar cheese on that bitch.

Also, make some mac n' cheese.
>>
>>7280554
Of course a burger you nub
>>
This is what I think of as traditional American fare:

> Hamburgers.

Beef patty with a piece of bread (usually a special type called a 'hamburger bun', google it) on each side, often garnished with ketchup, mustard and cheese.

> Hotdogs.

A pork-based frankfurter served in a roll, usually with any number of condiments like ketchup, mustard, relish, or veggies like sauerkraut or dill pickle.

> Freedom Fries

A variation on the 'French Fry,' a potato-based dish where the vegetable is cut into thin slices and cooked in oil. The American version of this dish typically involves thinner slices than the European version; hence 'freedom fries,' the freedom meaning that they come from the 'land' of the free.

> Barbequed Steak

A cut of lamb, often seasoned with salt and pepper, heated over an open flame. Local folklore has it that a charcoal-based flame is preferable to a gas-based flame.

> Freedom Pizza

A variant on the Italian pizza that is typically doughier, cheesier and meatier than the original.

> Chili Con Carne

Otherwise known as simply 'chili,' a highly complex dish whose key ingredients include beef, tomatoes and kidney beans.
>>
take about as much beef as you would use to make a meet ball. Flatten it. Fry it up, no oil needed. Flip it after five minutes and fry for another five minutes, with a slice of cheese on top.
>Cheddar tastes like wax when hot, use something else like american, swiss or provolone
Once its finished, put in a bun with a bit of mayo, lettuce, tomato and a pickle. I really suggest finding japanese mayo or Dukes if your in the south.

Serve with cole slaw.

Mesquite smoked chicken

1 whole chicken

Rub: 2 tsp sea salt, 1.5 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp rosemary, 1 tsp oregano, .5 tsp cayenne, .25 tsp all spice. Use this ratio and make as much as you need, and you WILL need more.

Injection: 1 cup of apple juice with 1 tbsp of rub

prep: Day 1 - spatchcock the chicken, apply olive oil as binder, and apply rub generously to all exposed areas of the chicken. Cover, and place in fridge overnight. Heat up apple juice and toss in your tbs of rub, stir to blend in all the flavors, take off heat, cool, place in fridge over night.

Day 2 - start your smoker and get it up to 275 - 300 deg F. Pull out your chicken and injection. Inject the breasts, thighs, and drumsticks. Apply another layer of rub to all exposed areas. Place bird in smoker with enough mesquite to flavor, but not over power the bird. Place drip pan below bird with 1 cup of injection, and enough water to last throughout the cook. Cook at 275-300degF until breast is 160 and thigh is 170, which should be about 2-3 hours. Once temp is reached, pull bird and rest. Pull drippings pan and use as a dip, and reduce in a sauce pan as desired.

Serve with desired sides, but I'd recommend a vinegar slaw and cornbread.

Watch out for cops as they might try to arrest you for making criminally delicious chicken. Between the rub, the great mesquite flavor, and the moisture of the meat due to the slow cook and injection, your Jap guests may never want to leave.
>>
>>7280712
btw, only one or two onion wheels, no more than two. Shit will make the jam taste bad if there is too much. Or fry it up in the egg/bacon greese for 2-3 minutes.
>>
>>7280547
Take them to panda express or taco bell.

>>7280712
Sounds pretty standard, other than the blackberry jam. Also, purple onions? I know they're purple, but they're called red.

slice up two carrots thin, not too thin
chop up two stalks of celery
chop two potatos into chunks as big as your celery
finely chop 1/2 yellow onion
boil 1-1.5 pounds of chicken in three quarts of chicken broth
>shred chicken
Boil egg noodles in the chicken broth with carrots, celery, tbsp basil, tbsp oregano, 2 tsp salt and if you want to, half cup of milk.

keep on a low boil for 30 minutes.

If you really want to be fancy, add two bay leaves.

Biscuits and gravy.

Into a bowl:

2 cups flour.
2 tbsp. baking powder.
1 tsp. salt.
2. tbsp. light brown sugar.

Whisk.

Add 1/4 cup of very cold butter cut into small pieces. With a fork, two knives, or your fingers, press the butter into the dough until it's broken into smaller clumps. If you use your fingers, work quickly so it doesn't melt much.

Add just under a cup of cold buttermilk. Mix until it comes together, then turn onto a floured board. It'll be sticky. Pat it out and kneed it maybe once. Get 3/4 inch thickness evened out. Cut by pressing straight down into the dough with a round cutter or a floured glass. Don't twist it or anything.

Set them on a greased baking sheet so that they're barely touching and bake them at 425 for 10-12 minutes.

For the gravy, brown up a pound of breakfast sausage in a saucepan, breaking it into small pieces with a spatula. Turn the heat down to medium-low. Then add 1/3 a cup of flour a small amount at a time. Coat the sausage evenly with about half of it, then stir until it's no longer visible, and add more bit by bit. Let this cook for a minute or two more, then slowly add 3 or 4 cups of whole milk, stirring as you do. Cook this for about 10-12 minutes. Season with salt and a good amount of pepper.

Just warning you in advance they probably wont like 80% of American food, unless its exactly like western food they have had in Japan like Hamburgers.

American food has different spices, flavor profiles, moisture levels, and textures than they are used to. Unless they are a westaboo it probably wont be enjoyable for them.

The biggest offender will like be dry, tough textures so try to avoid them like the plague. I have noticed most Japanese savory dishes have a high level of moisture or fat content.

If it were me I would stick to desserts (but not overly-sweet) and meats with Asian inspired sauces. Bland food is pretty prevalent in America so avoid that as well.

you'll end up with different amount every time you measure cheese this way. it'd be like a professional baker giving you flour measurement in cups instead of weight.

Those are always really good things to do for Jap visitors. Show them a good bit of America they can't get at home. I bet they feel really bad ass and confident at home when they brag to their friends and coworkers that they have hunted with a REAL gun.
>>
Make sure you get them a proper pizza. Also a thanksgiving style dinner one night might not be a bad idea since I don't think turkey is easy to come by in Japan. Also don't forget soul food, creole, cajun, hamburgers, good BBQ, steak, and various tex-mex foods. Maybe try making them bananas foster or an apple pie for dessert once or something.

That's beautiful. I adore the gun laws in Japan since you have to take your guns to the range consistently to own them. That's pretty legit. But there's hardly any good hunting there.

You're doing good work anon. This anon approves.

My Japanese friend liked most of the food he tried while here. He especially enjoyed BBQ brisket and greasy spoon drive-thru Mexican food. He naturally was blown away by the steaks here, too, although more for size/price ratio than anything else.

Seems odd, but its great.

Its chili, with fritos and cheese. However you don't add the second two things until you're ready to eat, in order to retain crunch factor.

If you'll have a Midwestern state fair nearby, you should take the student there to see the plebbiest of pleb American monstrosities. That's where fads like deep fried butter on a stick typically start out. A big art fair or other events sometimes have enough food booths you can get a few of the same things, but there's nothing like state fairs for undeniably and uniquely American food.

Corndogs

Reuben sandwich

Clam chowder

Badadoes:

Pasta salad

Guns

BBQ (grilled or baked with sauce)

Frito pie?

Chili dog

Caesar salad... kinda

Club sandwich

French dip/beef on weck

Popcorn

Apple pie w/ cheddar

Red velvet cake

German chocolate cake

Biscuits and gravy

Buffalo wings

...and the rest.
Sounds like a pleb list, but all of them can be done patrician like.
There's better American food, but I would expect to find most of these dishes available at restaurants across the states.

Don't cook hamburgers, hot dogs, corn dogs (they call them "American Dogs")-- they have those in Japan and sadly even the shittiest options there taste better than 95% of American establishments.

Good start is southern classics like frogmore stew, hoppin' john, shrimp and grits, corn bread, real fried chicken, NC-style bbq, pecan pie, coca-cola cake, lemon squares, etc. A lot of southern food taste profiles match up well to Japanese tastes, especially something like traditional shrimp and grits or fried okra.

Then go for things things like Texmex, Kosher Delis, bbq brisket, buffalo wings, etc. I'm at a loss for other distinctly American food styles, but don't forget to hunt down some of the nostalgic treats like Cheerwine, Charleston Chews, and some that most Americans don't even care for like clove gum and horehound.
