I was at the Strathcona Farmer’s Market this Saturday, hunting around for this week’s ingredients. I’ve moved, you see, and that’s why I haven’t been cooking nearly as much as I should. Sorry!
So anyhow, I found these nice elk steaks. I was warned not to overcook them, since they are very lean and have a tendency to dry out. Wow, she wasn’t kidding! I cooked them to rare, but still my dining companion deemed his steak too chewy. Alas. And to make things worse, the green beans I bought as a vegetable were tough and stringy! Maybe undercooked? No. I had some more today, and it was the same.
