Cheat meals that fail to deliver.

Really, really make me angry.

I hardly ever cheat now but when I do I want it to be worth it.

We gambled and tried a new Italian place this weekend, first cheat meal I've had in months.

It stunk....pure stank. Everything was a huge disappointment from the app to dessert.

Should've stayed with the tried and true I guess.

Re: Cheat meals that fail to deliver.

What did you have? I agree with you, there's nothing worse, well maybe when you ask for fatty slices of brisket and you get pieces that are leaner than filet mignon (which happened two nights ago). That's why I stick to the cookie dough cake from Cold Stone, which only happens three times a year. Real food tastes too good for me now.

Brisket is not a cheat meal

Re: Cheat meals that fail to deliver.

I just bought two briskets from a local grass-fed beef farmer & thought of you guys. I'm cooking the first one tomorrow. YEAH!

Any dessert from a chain spot is really disappointing - the Brownie/"Ice Cream" Sundae from Applebees is particularly offal (pun intended). Definitely not as nice as the picture on the menu looked...

Re: Cheat meals that fail to deliver.

I don't consider it one, I eat it at least three times a week. I was just saying that as an example because for me, brisket is better than a cheat meal. Having to eat really lean slices of brisket is worse than eating bad junk food, I love eating fatty slices of brisket. Tonight I'm having spare ribs, broccoli, and strawberries, going to be an awesome dinner.

Is it a flat or packer? I've been trying to find packer briskets around here for some time but haven't found any yet.

Re: Cheat meals that fail to deliver.

Depends on who you cheat with. There's a little pizza place in NYC that i went to when over there, it was love at first site and it damn well delivered.

It's eating out that i find exception too. A chicken salad with all sorts of veg and salad and oil and bought yesterday was frankly soulless. Texture, taste, or lack of taste rather, yuk...

Re: Cheat meals that fail to deliver.

Salad was warm, bread was old and had too much vinegar in the dip, baked ziti had a terrible sauce that was overly sweet, pasta overcooked, and finally the dessert was bland.

We tried this place because several people raved about it. Never again. No second chances.

We should have stayed with the place we usually go to, nice little local joint with authentic, quality food.

I'm not really sure what this means - I did a preliminary search but couldn't find the difference. The one I bought was approximately 2 lb, and sort-of conical in nature, with an OD of ~4 inches at one end, and ~3 inches at the other end, and is tied with some string to make it the conical shape. If needed, I can take a picture and post it when I get home.

I bought it from the folks at Hillacres Pride (www.hillacrespride.com, WFS). They have a stand at the local farmers' market (I bought $130 worth of meat in a single visit. Fantastic lamb, too!).
