How do you cook beef steak?
Hubby is fed up with Qorn, me thinks, and he bought some beef steaks. The last time I tried to cook some, they became as hard as my shoe soles.
What I did is that put some butter in a frying pan, garlic, parsley, salt , corn pepper and put my steaks in it. Cut a little incision on the top, and waited about 5 minutes, then turn over, another 5 minutes and they were really hard. So, I add some water, covered the pan and after 15 minutes, my steaks were so hard. I had to cut them in tiny pieces and disguise them in a curry with loads of vegs.
What did I do wrong?
What I have now in the fridge are two thick slices of beef roast joint, and I think it was the same last time . They look like steaks to me. And they have been looking at me every time I open the fridge for the last two days. But I cannot bring myself to cook them because I do not know how.
You can see, I am not a very good cook. I usually do meat in the pressure cooker and make casseroles, or I buy Qorn - but not the mince Qorn, it is not very tasty. I use real mince meat, at least, this, I can cook **smiles**
Help please? I shall NOT be defeated by two mere slices of beef, in my pursuit of bettering my culinary (un)talent .
