Cooking Fail!

So I know I said I would post about cooking failures as well. I had my most recent one last night!

As I placed flank steak into a pot to make Vaca Frita, I didn’t notice that I slid the steak in bottom side down. On the bottom was the plastic thing that soaks up meat juices, etc (a tasty image, right? Lol). I didn’t see one and thought there wasn’t one.

So only after boiling for over an hour did I notice pieces of plastic and paper floating in the pot. Say it together now…NOT EDIBLE! So needless to say, dinner was somewhat ruined.

At least I had some onions sauteing at the same time, so I caramelized those, threw in some mushrooms, and cracked some eggs on top and had them with toast. Breakfast for dinner after the colossal fail.

    Lol no pictures? Does vaca Frita take an hour to cook? I hope your onions and mushrooms were cooked in a separate pan. 😉

    • Lol, yes they were cooked in a separate pan. I was going for a shortcut version. I usually cook the meat first and shred it, then marinate overnight before cooking again. I was too annoyed to break out the camera or phone to snap pics of flotsam in the pot.
