During this time making my carne asada meal I got to experience many different senses good and bad. For my dish I got ground beef instead because the Aztecs ritual was not always sliced cut meat but it varied. First I had to go to Hy-Vee in Omaha, which is a well-known grocery store in Omaha, head over to the meat department and asked for two pounds of ground beef. While they were getting it ready I went and got the tortillas in the bread aisle. Also grabbing refried beans on my way back to get the meat, after getting home I grabbed a cooking pan to cook the meat in and set the stove to five. As the pan is warming up I begin to take the meat out and set it in the pan when it is warm enough. I grabbed a smash type stir utensil and begun stirring with a spin and smash technique after a little bit of stirring I put the lid on the pan so the meat would be cooked evenly through. Then I got my plate out and put the tortilla on the plate along with the microwaved refried beans. Going back and taking the lid off having all of the steam release out of the pan before stirring some more. I then had to drain the grease into a plastic cup that my parents keep on the counter to reuse, after draining most of it I grabbed a paper towel which soaked up the remaining grease in the pan. Then applying some seasoning to the meat I was ready to make my carne asada. Bringing the plate over to the pan and using a spoon to put the meat in my tortilla really made me want to start drooling. The smell of the meat and refried beans was just delicious, I then took a picture of the masterpiece created by myself and took it to my dinner table. After sitting down it was a wrap… the carne asada was gone in less than two minutes, so obviously it tasted good. Throughout this process I learned how to make carne asada’s and not only them but meat in general, also experiencing the shopping responsibility as well, all in all everything went well and tasted good.
