I know this photo is probably puzzling. I think this beef brisket is technically being served with two fruits since I think plantains are related to bananas. Without much available to us, we improvised on what to make for dinner. Since we've been really pressed for time lately, we tossed the brisket in the slow cooker while we tended to other duties. Of course, we rubbed the meat with "Nicks" Barbecue Rub courtesy of the Baltimore City Farmers Market first.
When we got home, the meat had only cooked for about 2 1/2 hours and was still a little tough but we were so hungry and it was getting late so we ate anyway. Goya Platano Maduras (fried sweet plantains) are among my favorite foods and since we had three packs in the freezer, we decided to 'nuke them in the microwave. To round out this unorthodox meal, I sliced some cantaloupe I picked up at the Cross Street Market.
I know the meal isn't too visually pleasing but, believe it or not, dinner tasted good. It was an interesting combination of sweet and salty.
At the rate we're going, who knows what we'll have for dinner tomorrow night.
