Pepper Corn and Beef

This is probably one of the quickest and easiest dish you can prepare. The combination of beef and corn is simply scrumptious. You might need more rice.

I have the tendency to dislike food and not to try them at all when somebody tells me the taste is not that “wow” or if I have tasted something close previously and did not like how it tasted.

I have tried pepper corn & beef before when at the airport and starving to death. That was the only dish looked appealing to me. When I tasted it, it was too pepper-y – more like it was called pepper-y pepper & pepper than pepper corn & beef. From that moment, no matter how pepper corn & beef looked mouth-watering to me, the eye contact between me and the photo never lasted that long. I always run away.

Not until few days ago… For how many years of running away from pepper corn & beef, I finally met the one made my eyes sparkle and my tummy rumbling.

Ahh, the taste was amazing – balance between salty, sweet & pepper-y. I apologize to all pepper corn & beef I’ve met before, but I’ve met my soulmate… and we’re engaged! 😀

I got more rice for you, so help yourself. 😉

  1. It looks yummy and I love your story about it. I’ve also had the experience of trying something, not liking it and then avoiding it for years. When I discover I actually like it I feel I’ve been cheated by that first experience! Thanks so much for sharing with #CookOnceEatTwice

    1. There are foods I disliked after I didn’t like the taste for the first time. I am glad I gave this one a chance. Thanks for stopping by, Corina. x

    1. I understand, Julie. That’s why I avoid such recipes before. I am glad that I found this one and it was really good! Thanks for being here. It’s always nice to have you around. x

    1. I was craving for this again, but I promised myself I would not eat beef that soon. I think I ate beef way too much recently, haha! Thanks for stopping by, Jess! x

  2. It looks delicious, Jhuls – the perfect antidote to all the sugary treats I’ve been helping myself to over the past days …
