Worst cook ever?

So- I was talking to my bff - and told her I was making beef stew for dinner. She saidit sounded great - text her how I do it

So

2lbs beef cubes

2lbs carrots

3 lbs potatoes

2 large onions

1 full celery bunch


with about 2 tbl olive oil sautee the beef in the bottom of a large stock pot stirring until all brown.

add 1/2 cup flour mix on med heat for about 4 mins until flour mixture on beef is browning a bit.

add veggies and 4 cups of water

put onlow - cover and let cook for about 2 hours or so - stirring now and then.

If you want a darker gravy add some gravy master but its not necessary

saltpeper to taste

SIMPLE


She just texted me to ask how my BS is coming - i told her great just got it simmering

she said she made it according to my directions and its inedible.

So I call her.

She had no carrots so she didn't use them (fine

she had no onions soshe used what she had left inher "shaker" of dried onion bits.

she had no celery so she used her thing of celery seed

and she forgot to do "the flour thing" so I just mixed it in later


SO basically she had a pot of meat and potatoes with a seasoning canister of minced onion and celery seed LOL

with flour water.

good grief.


NOW you all know why when we go to their house for dinner - I usually bring dinner!!

I didn't evenask what meat she used since she was using whatever she had on hand in her house..

i know she obviously never made stew before so she wouldn't have stew meat there.

i watched a few shows last season - its very unrealistic - those people aren't the worst cooks to have pulled off what they did.

I had a friend that didn't know how to scramble eggs. So she would random people come over to scramble them for her. Lol
