The recent quarantine, lack of work, and pregnancy have allowed me to explore the many different creative sides of me. One of those sides is one I’ve always wanted to perfect- cooking!
I am not the best cook and never have been, but expanding both my taste pallet and my cooking repetoire has become very important as I prepare to bring a child into this world. I vowed to myself that she would not end up as picky as I was as a child.
Now, I have made the broccoli and the potatoes before, so they were no trouble at all. The broccoli could have roasted for another 5 minutes, but that is because my preference is to have the broccoli burnt to a crisp. I will eat vegetables, but only if they are charred… and don’t taste like vegetables. As long as I eat them at all, Miss Emily will come out liking fruits and veggies!
The cubed steak was a very interesting cut of beef to make. It was textured almost like ground beef, and even came out tasting like an unseasoned hamburger rather than a steak. While the butter and garlic sauce heightened the flavor and made it eatable, it was certainly not our favorite cut of beef. The next time we try this dish, we will make it with a filet or a sirloin.
All in all, we are giving it 3.5 stars. You can’t mess up broccoli or potatoes, and the sauce was delicious!
