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.
