Got home late from work, and instead of cooking we ordered Chinese. One of my favorite parts of moving is finding new take out places, and I've been lucky enough to find a great (if not pricey) place that delivers Szechaun food. The best part of the menu is that it's full of offal - delicious offal prepared in ways I would never prepare it myself.
The best part of dinner.
The beef tendon was tender and gelatinous, thinly sliced and floating in chili oil with sesame seeds and scallions. The gelatinous tendon and the aggressive spice worked together, and even played off one another in the kind of way that makes me want to cook tendon. Truthfully, the thought of cooking tendon has always intimidated me.
It's awesome to find a delivery place that inspires me to buy more offal.
