On Sunday, I made some beef and broccoli which actually turned out really well except the beef was slightly overdone. I didn’t realize how thinly sliced the beef was. First I “marinated” the beef with garlic, a little bit of veggie oil, and oyster sauce. I let it sit while I boiled the broccoli very briefly. Then I cooked the beef and threw the broccoli in. All in all, it was probably my most successful meal to date. I have some more beef so I’ll probably do the same thing with green beans in a day or two.
My dish today was penne and broccoli with what was supposed to be “garlic-infused olive oil”. However, it didn’t taste like much of anything so I put soy sauce in it which I’ve actually done at home before and Itsuka did yesterday. I know some of you would say “WHY WOULD YOU EVER DO THAT?” but I’m Asian and when things don’t taste good, I add soy sauce. Although the dish overall was bland, the pasta and broccoli were cooked well.
I’m excited for Thursday because that means I get to see Devon!! Which also means that I’ll have real food to eat because she can actually cook. 🙂
