I went ahead and put it in my favorite marinade and will probably make a stir fry..
the second surprise was a milk/cheese experiment. I thought I was making a fresh chevre, with a recently cultured "buttermilk" product. I used a dry culture packet that said it could be used to make buttermilk, but was promimently labeled "fromage". well, it was not buttermilklike in the least....looks like I made a large pot of fromage......back to the kitchen....
That beef sure sounds like it was top-quality. Is that what you intended on doing with it... jerky?
Doesn't sound like your cheese was a bad surprise, but then I don't know what goes into making cheese.
