There’s no way to catch up from time passed, but I want to share my most recent meal time failure from last week.
I was excited to try (another) recipe from The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond called Steak Fingers with Gravy. I only recently have had the opportunity to watch her show and after watching her cook this meal I thought my boys would absolutely love it. I decided to add my sauteed broccoli and a special treat of deviled eggs. (Sorry for the blurry photo.)
Now, I know it may not look like a fail. And I agree. Many people would eat this meal and enjoy it. My boys tried the Steak Fingers and did not enjoy them. I thought they were OK, but I wouldn’t ask for them. This was my first time cooking with cube steak and I think the meat was tough and I wasn’t a fan of the breading. Most would probably compare this meal to Chicken Fried Steak, and I guess my family just isn’t a fan of it.
I am not bothered by the fail except for the wasted time and ingredients. I have always been given great feedback on my cooking which is a great help for improving. There was no way to improve this dish for my family. At least I’ve got Fried Chicken trips down to a “T”.
That night, and the following night, Ricky had the best leftovers ever!
