I think this might be my wife's problem, she sez the microwave gives meat a flavor when reheating, I reckon this might be what it is, I cant tell it any different but she can.
Which is why I vac seal and sous vide my leftovers.....Mike and Denny nailed it. Other than heavily Sauced, with Gravy or in Liquid, Meat gets destroyed in the Microwave. Reheating a Hamburger, hunk of Beef or Pork Chops in the microwave gives a horrible, Freezer Burned like flavor, to me...JJ
You are right with the textural changes also - leftover mashed taters bite! - I will only eat them as potato pancakes w/sauteed onions.When I was a kid I remember how things tasted different when reheated in or on the stove. Now all I notice are slight textural changes with the microwave (we have two).
Had a long conversation today with a friend that is a smoke and (true) bbq expert.I think your wife and mine are twins. Mine has such a dislike for some types of bbq leftovers she doesn’t even want the in the kitchen when the reheat..........
I almost always use the oven or stove top to reheat.....The microwave is for melting butter and popcorn......LOL We don't have an air fryer either unless you call it a convection oven, but we don't even have a working oven at the moment either.....but that is another storyHad a long conversation today with a friend that is a smoke and (true) bbq expert.
He said the air fryer is an excellent reheat source for q. Never tried one as I don't own one.
Anything is better than the microwave
