London Broil--So mad at myself

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I've smoked about a dozen London Broils, absolutely perfect. 

 

I usually take the meat to 135* and then do a reverse sear.

 

Yesterday, stupid me, after the reverse sear, I wrapped the meat in foil for about 20 minutes while I got the remainder of the meal ready. 

 

Normally, I never wrap the meat after searing it.  Wrapping it in foil for so long causes the meat to continue cooking.

 

I always enjoy the meat with a little pink in the middle.  It's always been tender and perfect. 

 

Some people can not master multi-tasking and I'm obviously one of them.

 

The end result was sub-par..  I had to douse it with steak sauce and horseradish. 

 

Finally, I chucked it to the family pooch, Max.  He loved it.

 

Below are pics of the failed meat;

a perfectly cooked London Broil; and

The winner of the failed meat (enjoying a big bone). lol

 

Oh well, back to the old drawing board

OMG

 

That could have been chopped and made into a stew or sliced paper thin for cheesesteaks or steak and egg burrito, pepper steak, chili, fried steak burritos... man I can go on forever.

 

I bet you got one happy dog.

I feel your pain. It's so frustrating when we do what we've done many times, only forget one little detail resulting the whole cook going south. But that's a part of the process. If we could nail it every time and ALL our meals were perfect, it might get a little boring. and the dogs would be a lot skinnier :)

Keep at it and enjoy the failures as well as the successes. It's a whole lot more fun than a lot of other hobbies out there.

Thanks all for all of the advice and good words.

 

Beef is not forgiving as pork.  Done right, it's a party in your mouth.  Done wrong, Max the family CockerSpaniel gets fat.  On another note, he's trained to walk on my treadmill.  So days when it's raining (like it's been doing for the past 20 some odd days here in Charlotte) Max will go for a really long walk.
