Good Cooking ≠ Genetic

POST #    1379

Last night, I attempted to stir fry some beef with broccoli, something so simple, but something that I have never made before. Of course, my mom has done it several times, and I've witnessed it a few times, so I thought there might be a chance that I could do it. Nope.

I tried to marinate the beef before hand, which worked fine. I also put some corn starch on, which didn't work too well. As it turns out, there might have been too much on some pieces but none on the others. I now realize that there was no water in the corn starch mix, which I think my mom usually has, resulting in the uneven mix. Mental note for the future.

The broccoli came out fine, but the beef was less than stellar. Stellar being my mom's cooking. I hope that after some practice, I can semi-perfect the dish. I even tried my hand at soup noodles, and even that didn't turn out great. Too much water resulted in semi-flavorless noodles.

Clearly, good cooking ≠ genetic.
