Great Minds Think Alike

Have you ever found yourself shopping for the same ingredients as someone else? Guy asked Chris and Jill to cook steak and potatoes, but with the market out of stock on both, the chefs each grabbed sausage and boxed mashed potatoes. Jill made her dish slightly different in puff pastry pockets, edging her the win.

Hasty Choice, Bad Choice

In a Five Items or Less challenge, Guy asked the contestants to cook an Asian stir-fry. Nick risked cooking tofu and decided to deep-fry it, but it ended up dissolving in the oil. It turned out he grabbed silken tofu. He proved you've got to read labels when you're out shopping.

Out of Stock, Out of Luck

Guy asked the contestants to make spaghetti and meatballs without pasta or meat. Karen decided to make matzo ball soup using egg noodles, but ran out of time before she could get them into the bowls. The bigger blunder for her was using chicken stock concentrate, which made the broth too salty.
