Testing recipes

I recently signed up to be a tester for the Friends of Cook’s Illustrated, and last night tried making my first recipe, Steak Tacos. I didn’t have time to stop for photos unfortunately, but a couple of the items from there were spectacular, namely the marinade (which is also used as a sauce) and a side recipe for sweet and spicy pickled onions. I’m dying to share these, but I can’t (copyright, etc.). The message said the recipes may appear in the magazine in about 6 months, so keep your fingers crossed.

I ended up using leftover pieces of steak, marinade and some of the sweet and spicy pickled onions as toppings and dressing for my lunch-time salad today. Mmmmmm….

I still have some of the pickled onions left. I need to think up some ideas to use up the rest. Maybe as a hot dog condiment? 🙂

    I’ve done a little testing for them, too. Pretty fun, don’t you think? Did you get the email for testing a whole turkey? Had to skip that one.

    I didn’t get that one, but I don’t think I would have had the time to do it anyway!

    I wish I could post the recipes online though. I’ve been having fun with them.
