|What is all of this stuff?|
I decided to start with Ottogi's three minute meatballs and hamburg steak. Which come in a box, and don't require refrigeration. I grabbed the steak first. After all, who doesn't like a good steak in a box?
|The picture looks good...|
A hamburg steak is actually just a Salisbury steak but with a less fancy name. The box proclaims that is is made with Korean chicken as opposed to some dirty foreign chicken. Korean people believe that Korean meat is superior to foreign meat, and usually they are right, it's definitely fresher. Although, I'm sure that they use the same undesirable parts to be able to sell this for 1,550 won (about $1.20). And once something has been processed to this degree, freshness is really no longer an issue.

It actually looks worse now. The gravy has separated and the edges of the steak are black? I actually only eco cooked it for 50 seconds due to the amount of sizzling and popping going on in my eco cooker. Oh well, time to dig in.
The knife was just for ambiance as the the steak was so soft I could have cut it with a playing card. In fact, I didn't even need to chew it. I just mashed it against the roof of my mouth with my tongue. I don't think you should be able to eat steak like that. As for the taste, it was surprisingly not bad. I've had worse meatloaf, which was exactly what a tasted like: meatloaf. All in all, I can't complain seeing as how cheap it was. Next stop, meatballs!
The meatball packaging is identical to the hamburg steak's packaging, all the way down to the ingredient list. The only thing that's really different is the weight/calories and the picture. If I get less than ten meatballs in my pouch then I'll declare false advertising.
|This is the first time I've seen something like this on a plate.|
Well I've finally satisfied one of my curiosities. I now know what I was missing out on for all those years, which wasn't much. As DumbTwo said, "I can't believe you ate that." Well, neither can I, neither can I...
