A few days ago, I blogged about my Substitute for Flank Steak Flop. I was attempting to make a recipe for Flank Steak, tomatoes and white beans and used Boneless Beef Chuck Steak to replace the non-kosher flank steak but unfortunately, the meal did not turn out very well. The meat was bland and tough. Needless to say, we had lots of leftovers.
I’ve been trying to think of something to do with these leftovers when I realized this morning that we were out of dog food and since I don’t have time to go to the store until later this evening, guess what our sweet little Golden Retriever, Mimi, is having for lunch today?
What’s that saying, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”? Well, in this case, “one families’ less-than-great dinner is a yummy, delicious snack for a dog.”
I made a cup of plain rice, chopped up the beef and mixed it all together. It took Mimi about 2 minutes to eat the entire bowl of leftovers and she didn’t complain one little bit.
So I guess the moral of this story is that if it’s next to impossible to “save” a bad dish, there’s probably a hungry dog somewhere around who would love a nice, kosher meal!
