Our steak adventure (caption contest)


September 4, 2012 by Emily Pergament

What is this and what do I do with it:

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.

All done!

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.

Remember to enter the caption contest!

    It looks like rotting flesh, the tongue of a dinosaur, and Hannibal Lector’s midnight snack combined.

    That’s Charlie Sheen’s liver on a Tuesday (you should see Saturday’s).

    Well first, good for you for being adventurous. You definitely need a grill pan. Put it on your register. I can’t think of anything clever for your contest, unfortunately, sorry.

    Am I too late? I’m not sure which pic we are supposed to caption, or which inappropriate, obvious answers are ruled out, so I won’t offer up placenta or ****. How about Cowboy Chaps?
