My over-educated boss (whom I adore- but she can make me feel a bit uneducated at times) asked me for my taco meat recipe, I copied the instructions straight from this post. I asked her how it went and this is our conversation-
B- It was a little dry
M- That's weird, how much juice did you have in the crock?
M- Well yea, you were supposed to put the juice back into the meat
B- Oh I didn't see that in the instructions
(I pull up my instructions to make sure it's there, and notice the line starts with "Strain the Juice"
M- It says right here, Did you miss the strain the juice part?
B- No, I strained it
M- Well then what did you do with the juice you strained?
B- I gave it to the dog, she was really begging
M- Why do you think you were supposed to strain the juice if you weren't going to use it?
B- I was really confused about that, just seemed to add more dishes.
We had a great laugh. The moral of the story- don't cook when you're really tired. And make sure to put the juice in- it really dries out on the second reheat without it.
