Finally tried my hand at some beef! Bought a box of frozen hamburger patties. First though, an attempt at various fried potatoes. I started off with “chips,” using oil and slicing up thin pieces of potato. Though given the limited size of my pot, I decided to not complete that, and ended up using chunk/wedges of potato. Everything went well, except the oversight of using a plastic utensil in hot oil. Added some salt and pepper to the potatoes, and let them cook until brown. Wasn’t too bad, though 1 or 2 pieces were slightly underdone, but cooked enough to eat.
After that was the hamburger itself. Just added some garlic powder to it, and proceeded to cook the patties (though I had to cook them 1 at a time). Forgot to bring down my onion and tomato, but I did have lettuce. I had a salad while I was waiting for it to cook.
I bought some ciabatta rolls and provolone cheese earlier in the week, and used those to help build the burger, along with some of the lettuce. End result – a satisfying burger and fries! Though next time, I think I’ll bring the onion and tomato for additional flavor.
