Regrettably it's paywalled to anyone without a Premium membership.

 

I found what appears to be the same recipe elsewhere: http://spoonbreadforhieronymus.blogspot.com/2008/12/amazing-five-hour-duck.html

Eating money.........

 

We landed again at Tokyo Narita airport and took the train to Kobe as sheer lunatics to have dinner at Kobe.

 

So our friends invited us us to Mouriya in Kobe to have some Kobe Beef.

 

The cuts of beef were Grade A5 which is supposed to be the top grade.

 

and here it is:

with certificates as well. Good thing they did not give us a DNA test as well.

No idea what the docs say but please translate for me if you wish.

 

Taste wise and the bottom line is that we were not bowled over as the meat is too tender for our taste and I am more used to feel a bite on my steak.

Kobe grade A5 and you are eating softer and tender money........Mind you I don't even like Truffles Piedmont or Périgord.

So Aberdeen Angus is still our favourite and we love Scotland and it's people.

 

Oh well, Argentina ere vee come........Love Tango!

 

 

Agreed on Kobe beef. Too fatty and limp.

I roasted chicken breasts, bone in before leaving for work yesterday so we could have Hot Chicken Sandwiches.  

Made the gravy in the morning too.  Served with our traditional double fried fries and canned peas.

My son bought me an early Christmas present.  A new kitchen toy. With two blades.

3/8th inch and a 1/2 inch.  Yesterday's fries were the 1/2".

 Im not going to ask ...

 

what was the total cost , and how many people ?

 

I agree w you on the Beef.   

 

at least  you got to try it.

 

did you bring your Statins along for the trip ?

 

 

Dunno the cost as we were invited and expensive vino was involved. I estimate around USD350 per person for the Kobe meat only, for a party of 5 hungry Ladybirds:

 

As for my Statins, I am a walking pharmacy........

Try this one https://food52.com/recipes/9115-slow-roast-duck

I used 275 convection bake flipping the duck every hour (starting with breast up) without additional piercing of the skin (pierced it real good the first time).

Duck breast loves sous vide

Although I am a fan of sous vide for many things, duck breast is not one of them. The duck breasts I can get or so small that I find that sautéing them works better. YMMV.

Asparagus, Berkshire chop, sweet potato.  Sweet potato not cooked on the Philips grill.

 

Normally it does not take much to render me replete.  Something terribly went wrong.  I had a plate of Campari tomatoes with Momofuku ranch.  And then I had another.  Then I saw the box of Sweetzels spiced wafers.  No, I do not think I am pregnant.
