It was like my mouth was raped by beef.
This was my second try at beef stroganoff, first was kinda bland. I get a cheap steak and put it in the freezer for a bit to make cutting it thin easier. Cook the beef strips at a really high temp in a little butter to get good browning and the crunchie flavor filled bits. Sauce was a bit different this time. I made a roux and added campbells beef condensed bullion. Now here is where I messed up. I did not notice the condensed part, I just thought the tiny cans were cute. Noodles, beef and dark brown sauce with some sour cream added, all good right?
The beefiness was soooooo intense. Oh man my mouth hurt. it was really good, but it was dangerous. I will definitely add some water to the sauce next time.
Acording to T, I make the best sauce ever. is is basically a bechamel with garlic, parm and moz cheese, sun dried tomatoes, fresh plucked basil and usual seasonings added. I pounded the chicken really flat and cooked it in a cast iron skillet with just salt, pepper, and EVOO. Topped with fresh grated parm cheese, it was delish.
When it comes to chain restaurants I have so little respect for 99% of them. The outback is a place that I actually am proud to eat at. The friendly staff, awesome food, I have never had an average meal there, it is always above average. The place just rocks. I ask every time why there is not one down south, to keep all those dam southsiders away from my outback. Answer is always “I have no clue why they don’t”
So we headed to the once a year trip to the mall during christmas, stopped by for a beer and aussie cheese fries. We got seated and waited, and waited. prob 12-15 minutes and no server. i went up to the host stand, pointed to the seating chart marking where we were and said “we will just sit at the bar”. Michael (a female, does the spelling seem strange to you?)was working the bar, so we knew we were in good hands.
About three minutes later the server who was supposed to wait on us came over and apologized.
Now I do not know if it is standard policy, for they do have a specific in your face / best buddy way of doing things. but, it was darn decent for her to come up to us and say “sorry”. We are very accustomed to exactly what had happened since we both have done table service in the past, sections had changed. A typical customer would of used the “yes that was rude, you suck” response. We splained it was no biggie. Michael got a 45% tip.
Still I walked away impressed and satisfied, and we will be back again.
I heard about a year back that caramel M&M’s were being test marketed. Seriously there is no need to “test” them, they would fricking rule.
Then i found this from a google search.
Masterfoods has stopped distribution of caramel-filled M&M’s, according to published reports. The special M&Ms were targeted at Hispanic consumers and received strong advertising and promotional support in markets where the company was testing the new flavor, including Miami, Los Angeles and San Antonio. The company noted it may continue to offer the candy on a seasonal basis, however.
What a load of crap, I am severely bummed.
A cargo container that apparently fell from a ship washed up on the Outer Banks of North Carolina on Thursday and spilled thousands of bags of Doritos brand tortilla chips on the beach. People collected the chips, which were apparently still fresh due to their airtight packaging. It was unknown which ship had lost the cargo or to what port it was bound.
