The food on the menu sounded simple and had a countryside feel to them. "Grandma’s Braised Pork,""Ham & Egg Sandwich,""Salted Baked Potatoes,""Black Peppered Grilled Corn,""Old Beef with Sauce."
"What the hell is ‘Old Beef with Sauce?’" Li Du asked, "Isn’t beef better when it's tender?"
Hans nodded."Yeah, the more tender it is, the better it tastes. However, in the West countryside, cows and bulls weren’t originally meant for food, but helpers in the fields.
"That’s why, unless the cows were so old that they couldn’t work anymore, they wouldn’t be sent to the dining table. Although old beef can be hard to chew and lacking in flavor, with some sauce, these negatives become positives.
"With lots of sauce, the extra chewing required for the meat would allow the sauce to permeate out more from the meat, and heightens the flavor."
