This week's shopping trip was quick. I was in and out in under 20 minutes. Five of those minutes were spent staring at steaks. Why does the recipe tell me I need "thin boneless beef minute steaks" if minute steaks do not exist? I ended up picking thin rounds because, well, they fit at least part of the description. Also, I'm not really going to count the phone call I made to my sister since she didn't know either.
This recipe was easy to understand and moved very quickly. The part that took me the longest was chopping up the tomato. I don't know why, but that just seemed to take forever.
Once everything was simmering in the pan, I cleaned up the kitchen and set the table. YES! I got to eat at a real table tonight instead of a tv tray. Amazing.
Charlie was less than thrilled. With the new table, she is farther from the food than ever before. She is not a fan of counter height tables. Not a fan at all.
Honestly, this meal has left me feeling heavy and full. I ate almost 2 hours ago and I still feel full - and not in the satisfying, best-thing-I-ever-ate way. I just feel kinda...bleck.
The main problem with this meal is that it turned out to be super soggy. I love stuffing, but I love it dry and fluffy not weighted down by excess liquid. I followed the recipe, but there was too much dressing on the tomatoes and the steak was in too much oil. Also, if I make this again, I will not add the stuffing to the pan. I would leave it separate until I am ready to eat instead of combining everything.
At least those are all problems that can be fixed for next time.
