Guy Fieri Reveals His Five-Ingredient Dish — Guy's Grocery Games
On Guy's Grocery Games, "Five Ingredients or Less" is inarguably the most well-known, difficult and popular game. And why is that? Because "everybody plays the game at home and goes, 'Here's my five,'" says the show's host, Guy Fieri. It's hard to resist even if it's just left up to the imagination. "It's awesome to see what the chefs come up with here [on the show]," continues Guy, especially when there are those who make it even more challenging for themselves by creating a dish with just four ingredients! That's what makes the game so fun — it can go any which way.
We asked Guy to play along and come up with his favorite five-ingredient dish, but he doesn't stop at just one combination. He says, "It depends on what day it is, what time it is, what you just had for lunch, what you're going to have for dinner, what you are emotionally, how you're feeling physically, what temperature is it outside." But Guy's first combination surprised us.
"Garlic, shallots, red chile flakes, kale, red-wine vinegar," he said off the bat. "I love kale. I think kale is a vegetable that eats like a protein. It's hearty. You can eat it raw, chopped in a salad, you can eat it cooked, wilted and beat up like a collard green. ... It's super fortifying and very healthy for you. But," Guy added, "that's like also asking somebody 'What's your favorite song?' That's just what came to my mind." Other options for him would include "white truffle, Parmesan cheese, really great extra virgin olive oil, some pasta [and] cracked black pepper." And another five: "Pork butt, tomatillos, white onions, green bell peppers and garlic," he said. "Let's make some pork in a pressure cooker."
Now, Guy's Grocery Games fans, what's your five-ingredient dish?
