I just wanted to share what I read in our local Fort Collins, Colorado paper yesterday.
As I was perusing the Life section looking for the comics I read this headline over a recipe, “MSG, lime add jolt to beef”. Thinking this must be a mistake I read through the recipe for Garlic, Lime Beef with Avocado Salsa, but no, in the ingredients list was ‘Accent or other MSG product’. In the article accompanying the recipe the author had this to say, “In this recipe, that boost is provided by a quick marinade of lime juice, soy sauce, garlic and MSG. Don’t shy away from that last item. It’s already in nearly everything you eat and has long since lived down its Chinese food syndrome days.”
Wow! I am at a loss for words as I have NEVER seen a recipe actually list MSG as a viable ingredient. I find it very, very scary.
