These days I feel like a winner. I just got a cast iron skillet, and guys, it's really amazing. It grills, it sautes, it bakes. Really great.*
I made grilled onion and seitan fajitas with black beans and jalapenos. The seitan was great, but not by me. The secret is in the skillet! (Congrats to the red dinosaur for making an appearance)
I scrubbed off the gray soot that covered it and rinsed it out with water. Then evenly spread veggie oil over the surface and placed it in the oven on low heat (250-300) for a bit to let the oil set, maybe an hour. Presto! Beautiful again. Phew. Now I want to go to the Goodwill and find more skillets to re-season and claim as mine.
