Haven't really posted in here before as most of my dinner is more meal prep for the week ahead, but thought I'd plate tonight's up nicely so I can put it on here.

Sriracha glazed bavette beef, coconut rice, soy & sesame brocolli and kimchi (530 calories for anyone interested



And the not so interesting side of things

Over in Singapore, it took me a while to get off burgers at the F1, finally had a proper meal!

Sticky chili beef. Called ‘beef 1am’ for some reason!

I love it, one of the cheaper cuts, and textures more like slow cooked soft beef with just a few mins on each side.

Recipe for this was for 700g of bavette steak cut into chunks, fried for 2-3 mins on each side, then set aside.

For the glaze, put the following in the still hot steak pan.
1/4 cup of sriracha sauce
3 Tbs rice wine vinegar
3 Tbs clear honey
3 Tbs light soy
3 cloves garlic chopped
(I also like to add a touch of chopped ginger, tsp of sesame oil and some sesame seeds)
Bring to the boil and then turn down to simmer for 10 mins.
Finally crank the heat up, pour the beef and beef juices back in and toss to glaze.

You won’t regret it. Also works well with turkey meatballs.

Low Carb theme at the moment.
Halloumi Cheeseburger with Dijon Mustard in Lettuce Wrap.
I’m attempting a low/lowish carb theme also ,I will be replicating this one night this week looks the doggies
I often use iceberg lettuace leaves in place of tortilla wraps. Works well, nice crunch, and as it's mostly water, you can add more chillies to the wrap. wink

My daughter complained about my wife's lasagne.

Not surprisingly as my wife just smacks some mince between some flat pasta sheets. Apparently this is not as good as Tesco's and also once been in the freezer and defrosted and microwaved it is even worse..... who would have thunk it ?

So I decided to do a one off treat for her, told her in the car this morning that I was going to do it and going to use a Bechamal sauce as should be done. She replied "can you not use a roux sauce instead?"

At least she learnt something before going to school when I gave her my reply.

So 1kg of beef later, 2 oxo cubes. 1 small onion cut really small as she does not like seeing bits of onion ( fecking pecky eater?) and doing 1.5 pints of sauce



Woohoo.

I left it looking like a proper kitchen too, for no extra charge. Then got the phone message, she is going to her friends tonight. getmecoat

Anyone want a lasagna that weighs the better part of 3lb but does not taste that good due to previous buyers whims on what goes in it?

My 38kg dog after his tea seems still interested in pudding for some reason ....

No, i usually order off eBay, or go to wing yip every few weeks.
It’s one of those things like puff pastry where I think, I could put a lot of time and effort into making it... or buy it produced much better than I’ll ever make!

We've bought mainly from Hoo Hing (it's costs a lot more than it used to) so we're going to try making our own. It might even be better, most home made things are.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Excellent, many thanks, not seen that thread before.

ETA: Completely agree with you about PP. We always get frozen.

Looks great, but steak? If cooking that long you can use something cheap and flavoursome like brisket, skirt, shortrib..

A lot of those cuts are often referred t a braising 'steak'

Brisket would be the one though.

I've ordered skirt for a pie at the weekend. Can't beat slow cooked beef this time of year lick
