Or plainly, rice with meat and spices. Yesterday I made something distinctly resembling the subject. But that's not why I'm here.

Tell me something, lads. The meat part tasted awful today after I microwaved what was left from yesterday's portion. I remember at least three similar occasions when meat would taste foul after the microwave. And plenty of occasions when it wouldn't.

Why? I am at a loss here.

Ahahah why the fuck would you expect something called "plov" to taste good?

Because it tastes well. Also, the question is about the meat specifically, not the plov.

In what way did the meat taste foul after microwaving?

That's quite a tough question mate. Let's say it tasted so foul that I had an urge to take all the meat pieces from the meal and feed them to the bog. I really don't know how to describe it.

The previous similar occasions I mentioned above - the same flavour although not near as awful as it was today.

On a tangential note, how does old meat taste?

Nutty with a nasty aftertaste. Generally your nose will know when meat is gone, but if there's aromatic spices to cover it you might miss it.

Honestly though if you're just reheating leftovers in the microwave and are finding it minging then you're probably leaving it in too long. It tightens the meat and makes it rubbery.

Was there asafoetida in whatever you spiced the meat with? That can taste unbelievably foul if you get it too hot, which you might have managed with dry meat in a microwave.
Excellent stuff otherwise, though.

Just about 2.5 to 3 minutes at 700 kW. Rubbery would be a precise description for the cases when I would re-heat fried meat. This time it wasn't rubbery. It was something more close to slimy, I think. Not exactly slimy but closer to that than to anything else.

Naw. Besides, I spiced the whole food. Rice tasted all right. It's the meat that was less than delicious. Way less.

splash some water on the leftovers before microwaving.
cover, (with another plate) and reheat slower on a lower setting.
its about all the advice that i can give re this subject. when using a microwave, you must always be prepared for some sacrifice of texture/taste/quality

I've tried to start eating quinoa instead of rice recently. Does anyone have any tips on how to make it taste less disgusting? I like nuts, but quinoa's nuttiness is just not for me. But I tend to just serve it as a side with whatever else I'm eating. Any tips?

It's very good with pesto. Lob in some peas (or prawns) if you're tempted, for a bowl of deeply satisfying glop.

I'll give that a try. I just cooked some using the advice from this page:

http://www.thecookteaser.com/food-blog/how-to-spice-up-your-quinoa

1 spoon of Kurkuma
- 1 spoon of Curry
- 1 teaspoon of paprikapowder
- 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of garam massala
- 4 shredded limeleaves
- some salt & pepper to taste
- a shot of Kikkoman


It seems to be that quinoa will absorb whatever flavours you boil the stuff in, so I boiled up a vegetable stock cube in water, mixed together 1/2 teaspoons of paprika, garam massala, cinnamon, garlic powder, chilli powder, and some salt and pepper, then added the quinoa to the stock cube broth, addedfollowed by a tea spoon each of mustard and coconut oil, then some kale, then my spice mix. Squeezed in some lime about a minute before I drained it. It was really fucking nice.

Did that actually. No luck, mate.
