I was after beef for stew, and thought about how much less cutting I'd have to do.
I didn't cook the steak all the way as it wanted to smoke and the wind is blowing the wrong way to open the windows, but I did cut off and eat the edges.
It really is a steak! Tasty and pretty tender.
I will cut up two of the steaks for stew, cut another into strips like someone posted about flank steak and probably the rest of this steak too.
I'll make a pineapple marinade w/brown sugar, ginger and soy and freeze together with the strips.
The pork sirloin roast came out tender but not overdone. The outside was brown and crusted even though I had it covered during the first hour. I love braising. The braising juice had reduced to about a half cup of concentrated flavor.
I ate the ends with some of the braising liquid. Mmmmm.
