Day three of Operation: Expand Horizons was, unfortunately, a most dismal failure. I chose a recipe that seemed to fit with my husband's tastes, because it was his birthday. Everyday Food's Skirt Steak with Crispy Garlic Potatoes just didn't work out.
The first problem was the skirt steak. It was gamey and tough, and although I grilled it to the recipe's specifications, my husband said it was too rare. The second problem was the crispy garlic potatoes. The recipe did not indicate that the bottoms would brown faster than the tops, and my potatoes wound up overcooked.
The one thing that tasted good was the salad I made. :\
