I’d say many if not most people who know me, know that I don’t eat mammals and haven’t since I was 12. I’ve been more lenient lately (we did go to Churrascaria Tribeca…), but not once have I cooked beef for myself. I didn’t know what to do with it.
So we took a page (literally) from our cooking class recipes and heated a pan (they used a grill in our class – ha!) to high and then cooked it for three minutes on each side. The recipe from class said to cook the meat on each side for four minutes, but that seemed like a long time considering how thin this was.
Let’s just say I didn’t know how…. bubbly and bloody it would look while cooking. Here’s the contest – since Rob said it would go too far outside the bounds of appropriate public discourse to say what I think it looks like, enter in the comments section what YOU think it looks like. I’ll pick a winner on Thursday. Your prize is a shout out in my blog, and on my Facebook if I’m friends with you.
I’d say I took ~72 chews per bite size piece I ate. Even three minutes seemed to be too long to cook it.
But I’m proud of our dinner. I think Rob enjoyed it. He said he’s taking the big piece for lunch tomorrow. Unless he’s going to feed it to a feral cat on his way to work, I’d say that’s a pretty legit compliment to the food.
For our veggies:
We bought the pre-made salad on the left (it’s HUGE when you put it in a bigger bowl) and added a green pepper. We used some light honey dijon dressing without an expiration date, but thought would be ok to use after a quick taste test.
