If you have watched any real or competition cooking show, you know that it happens to everyone. It happens to the very best of chefs like Rick Bayless and Rick Moonen and even happens to the the stay at home cooks or people like me. Everyone ruins a food; whether it was over-cooked, under-cooked or just made badly. But before you throw it away, it may just be able to be saved. Chef's have a secret ace in the hole: BBQ.
Now, I am not suggesting that restaurants and BBQ joints use badly cooked food, as this is a recommendation that when you are cooking at home and you ruin something, you can maybe fix it.
I made some pork steaks the other day, which for one reason or another, still looked pink, in the oven, so I kept them cooking. Well, they over-cooked and then were a bit tough and dry. What I have found that works best is to take the pork and chop it up.
So, experiment! Look in your fridge and see what you can make.
