RIP Monster Bresaola

With nothing better to do because of the snow, I had a trawl through my past posts. I realised that I never posted the outcome of the monster piece of beef that I was making bresaola with here and here.

I'd like to tell you how brilliant it was - but I can't! After a while hanging in my drying fridge it started to smell like a tramp's underwear - take it from me, I know from personal experience what a tramp's underwear smells like and it isn't pleasant! There was nothing to do,other than bin it. As one of my forum colleagues has as his signature "It's Not a Sin to Bin". We all get occasional failures but it's all the more galling when the meat has cost a lot of money.

That's the last time I come up with a hair brained-scheme like injecting cure into meat that I'm aiming to dry out! If I'd used my head, I should have realised it was a daft idea in the first place.
