Today, I spent my entire day off making a brisket. It had been cooking for 8 hours when, just before dinner, I went for a quick jog. In that time my girlfriend came home and ruined it by trying to make it the way she wanted. I'm a chef and she's an office worker. We couldn't eat it. FML

A real chef would have protected his brisket to the end. To make the truly divine brisket, one must sacrifice their petty physical needs, like sleep, sex, exercise, etc. This is why excellent brisket is rare.

Damn she touched your meat time for a respectful new girlfriend 🤔😐

Show it anyway

not true, don't ever mess with someone else's creation when it's in progress

If that were the case, she’d buy her own damn brisket and cook it herself, not butcher something that someone else was working on.

Yeah because the rest of us are normal and would actually be upset about the blatant disrespect shown for our hard work so she could commandeer something we created so she could have it her own way.

You call it normal I call it batshit crazy to get mad over a ruined meal. That's just stupid to get mad over and fight over

Why wouldn’t you be mad? She did something rude and inconsiderate.

I would never be mad over a meal lol it's just food, I dont see it as rude or inconsiderate, I see it as an attempt to do something nice and it went sideways. I would laugh it off and cook something else together.

I doubt you'd still think it was "just a brisket" after spending 8 hours working on it!

No... Behavior like that means one of two things. She's a control freak, or just a spoiled brat that wants things the way she wants them, and screw everybody else.

First of all cali, it's not like he literally stood in front of the oven for 8 hours without looking away. Secondly it's just a meal. What if it turned out to taste amazing, would people still be mad about it? I see a nice attempt gone wrong, a funny story for both to laugh at and eat something else. Seriously arguing over something like this, half of you are taking your partners for granted

Reminds me of the girlfriend who boiled expensive steaks.

I could not have dated someone like that. Grilled or broiled only. rare to medium rare. anything else is unacceptable for steaks.

She didn't actually like her steaks boiled, she was just ignorant as to how steaks are prepared, and so ruined the steaks in her attempt.

Just reading that made me cringe 😵

My mom grew up with that is how you did a steak. They were dirt poor, and bought the crappiest cuts of red meat, and that was the only way to make them where you could actually chew them. When she first met my dad, she refused to eat steak, because she thought it was gross. Then he fed her a grilled New York, and that was all it took for her to appreciate steak

ydi for leaving a working oven on when nobody's home

Well considering brisket is typically cooked in a smoker outside, I think OP was fine to go for a quick run.

how do you fuck up a brisket that's pretty much done cooking?

Depending on the size of the brisket it barely hit the halfway mark

I imagined her chopping it up and covering it in ketchup or hot sauce, but I really don't know. I hope OP posts a follow-up!

So, you threw the whole thing away and started fresh, right? I mean the girlfriend not the beef. Seriously, she has packed SO MUCH disrespect into one act! Doesn't accept that you are a cooking expert. Is willing to steal your project out from under you without permission (that would be weird even if she had not ruined it). She wasted all those hours of your precious free time that you'd devoted to the project so she clearly doesn't value your time. And she seems to imagine her skills are far superior to what they really are- likely a self absorbed brat. Seriously, just throw away the entire girlfriend.

You should make her buy you dinner

tha... that's just sacrilegious. prayers for your fallen brisket man.

As a chef, shouldn't you know to never leave a stove or oven unattended? Should have stayed there!
