yep, i fucking ruined that pot.
after deciding to go to the pet store, i thought i’d braise the belly i’d defrosted following the seasaltwithfood recipe.
i blanched, i mixed and set it up for the two hours cooking time. i thought there wasn’t enough liquid to braise, but followed the recipe and put the pan on the lowest setting. i came back an hour and bit later and it smelled nice. i tried to take the lid off the pot with some trouble and it looked like it’d been napalmed. i chipped away what i could and crunched some very dry belly in my teeth before giving up and putting the sink to try and save the pot.
the only saving grace is that i had soup left over from yesterday.
