Just a quickie here, something that I made with some leftovers. The beef is actually one of those pre-marinated packs from Trader Joe's and I have to admit I was not impressed. Not impressed at all.
It claimed to be "Korean short ribs" and while the marinade might have been Korean, the meat wasn't ribs, it was chuck steak. Now I like chuck steak, don't get me wrong, but when I buy something that says it's one thing and it turns out to be another I'm not best pleased.
Course, I wouldn't have cared if it had tasted good... Now, it wasn't awful, but it wasn't something I'd buy again. Or recommend to others. I wasn't going to just throw it out though, it wasn't that bad, so I did my old standby. I wrapped it in pizza dough. The marinade it was in reminded me of the beef and broccoli from a Chinese restaurant I used to go to so I figured I would toss some broccoli and onion in there and call it a meal. It filled my stomach even if it didn't thrill my palate, so at least it wasn't a total waste.
Despite the lackluster protein, I liked the concept of Asian goodie filled pizza dough. It reminded me of steamed buns, but crispy on the outside and with more flavor in the bread. This is something I'm going to do more with, but next time I'm making my own marinade.
