I had a can of beans that was going to expire soon, so I figured I would make some dinner revolving around it. When I went to the store I was thinking Mexican. At the store I picked up a shallot and some steak figuring I would try to make one of those dishes where there is the steak smothered in a spicy red sauce. Which naturally become I’ll cut up the steak and cook it like a stir-fry so it’ll be easier to make. And here is my creation:
- Read the can before you plan around it because Baked Beans are not equal to Beans.
- Any “sauce” that I make always ends up brown. (Ok, maybe this isn’t a lesson, but a quandary left unsolved)
- I really need to learn how to stir-fry. My meat always ends up dry and over-done and my veggies are always underdone.
- I should figure out which spices are actually in Mexican food. The only part I hit was spicy.
