So when I feel bad, I cook, or try to; lately I've been wanting to try more international stuff, so that's been on my mind. So the last couple of days have been busy and adventurous!

I finally made this Mongolian sweet-cured beef I found a recipe for online; it's very sugar-heavy and I intended to fix it as actual *cured* beef, but after both parents gave me a look of you want me to eat what I kind of had to change that up and make it a marinade so I could cook the beef. I actually do want my mom to eat it. So I tried documenting the process of making the marinade mixture, which...kind of worked. It looks a bit like road tar, but my kitchen smelled like a spice market making it; it's got demerara sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, Indian brown mustard, cinnamon, coriander, tabasco sauce and onion powder. I would have used chopped onions, but I wanted to thicken the sauce so it wouldn't be so very liquid and might stick better to the meat. I'm hopeful of it working out, but also kind of apprehensive.

So with it my plan is to make a cracked wheat salad with roasted veggies, though it's been a while since I've made anything with cracked wheat and my family sometimes can be capricious about liking that.
