Prawncrackers, it is pure genius to use Ox cheek in rendang. I am so going to steal that idea! Beautiful food as always.
Thanks Keith, i'm going to claim that it is actually my original idea to steal from! The eureka moment happened in this cheeky thread back in 2009.
Cheeks are great eating, I had some pigs cheeks in the freezer and made a mole poblano sauce to go with them today. Delicious but impossible to photo nicely:
Grilling season is definitely here and I know you good people like to see a nice steak. As a plus the asparagus season as also started in the UK so i grilled some of those too.
Served over Japanese rice with miso aubergine and that same sesame miso sauce from my last post (a real favourite). Best thing was the steak only £6.50 from my local supermarket! Reduced price as it had been on the counter for a week apparently. Whodya thunk aged beef costing less, that's supermarket logic for you. I aged it another 8 days in my fridge before cooking it. I think £ for lb ('scuse the pun) it was the best steak I've ever eaten. Really flavourful and tender.
