For my second learning project challenge I decided to try my hand on the barbeque. I have never once cooked on a barbeque and have honestly it was a little intimidating at first. My sister came in to visit me so I made some steaks, corn on the cob and baby potatoes to celebrate with everyone. I had to overcome a few problems with this post as the barbeque didn’t want to work and I had no idea how to properly cook the steaks to everyone’s liking (thankfully they were all medium-rare). Another challenge with the steaks was that there were three different cuts of meat which each required a different cook-time. My friends were all super helpful when I didn’t know what to do, be that with the corn or the steaks. The potatoes were definitely the easiest part of the meal.
This experience was frightening and exciting all at the same time. I must say that the steaks were cooked to perfection and I couldn’t have done it without the help of my friends and sister. This learning project started out daunting, but as it turn out I am almost considering throwing out my take-out drawer to try and cook more for myself, but that is still TBD. Next time I am going to tackle a slightly bigger meal, possibly adding a dessert.
