    Dinner saved

    what is your best recipe for saving a meal?

    tonight I was cooking Blackened Albacore Tuna, but I overcooked it. I made it into the best Tuna Salad ever.

    Tell us about your best saved entree.

    hehe - many - especially when over-confidenced in cooking skills a while ago.

    Hmmm, let's see.

    Couple of dried up - overcooked pork and beef tenderloins - rescued by remaking them with some gravy (from stock I had in the freezer) - and incorporating them into basically a one pot meal with the rest of the vegetable items - went over well. Note that I mentioned both meat items so - yeah - happened more than once.

    The worst, I mean WORST piece of corned beef EVAR!!!!!! I think there was probably two servings of actual meat on that probably 10 lb carcass. Made a mighty good stewish thing with the potatoes, carrots, cabbage and stock (sans fat) rendered...

    WORST PIECE OF PRIME RIB EVAR - I mean even when it was uncooked - the freakin thing was hard! It was awful - learned from that boo boo many years ago that when a piece of meat does NOT come up to temperature in a normal amount of time - then it's an old piece o somthing. Used a saw to get a slim slice off that prime rib and choked it down - it was rare too which is how I prefer beef - the more raw the better - but this - this thing just was off the scale!!

    HOWEVER - that expensive carcass made THE BEST beef barley soup. Cooked down - those old freaking bones finally gave up some taste. However, it would have been nice when I was serving company that a nice piece of prime rib would be carved off instead of having to put the beef into a stranglehold and take a knife to it like a horror movie.

    I used to do a lot of parties for myself as well as working as a caterer, lotsa bad news stories - but ----!!!! how to recover from the WHOOPS!!

    not an option when out on the lake.

    I did get a nice text message this morning thanking me for a wondeful evening. She said she loved the way I reacted to the ruined entree(I kept my cool) and the blueberries with sweet cream dessert was a rare treat.

    Sunday niight I'm cooking seared pork tenderloin with a chipotle cream sauce. I hope ths one turns out better.
