Is that vege ‘meat’ loaf? Could only be better than the real stuff


#222

Last night l went to the Green Chili just near the Japanese Bridge here in Hoi An town. it turns out the co-owner and head chef is married to an old friend of mine. We caught up yesterday over coffee. For dinner l let him choose for me, local prawns with flat string pasta, and a home made sauce. l ordered early and just as well l did, the place was empty when l arrived and half full by the time my meal arrived. l will probably go back there before l leave. Had a glass of a nice and smooth French cab sav as well.

For lunch today l had a sausage roll, for the first time in about 35 years in a local sports bar.

Definitely the best “mock roast” recipe I’ve found, and to my taste better than the one Sanitarium sell.


#224

Sautee one chopped brown onion in olive oil with 2 cloves minced garlic and 1-2 tsp el yucateco green habanero sauce (depending on taste). When the onion is translucent, add a big fistful of arborio rice, keep cooking for a couple of minutes. Add 2 cup chicken stock, bring to boil, then simmer for 10 minutes. Add a packet (250gm) of finely chopped spinach, bring to boil then simmer for as long as it takes to thaw the spinach plus 5 minutes more. Season, then serve in a soup bowl topped with a generous amount of shaved parmesan.

Saute

Add 125gm mixed seafood and season with pepper and salt
Add parsley

Calling on the BBQ meat experts, I think THT is the man here, even though you’ve moved.

Where can I find a quality butcher who knows what they’re doing and I can get a nice piece of beef brisket to cook?

I’m no expert but I seem to end up with skirt steak or absolutely no fat on it. It also just looks way too thin.

Anywhere in Melbourne just not the S/E suburbs.

Sorry I missed this. Only came in to comment on my ■■■■ dinner in Perth…

Anyway. If price is no object Bertie’s Butcher in Swan St Richmond is very good. They know all the proper cuts, and their meats are hand raised organic and tucked into bed each night. Their brisket is really good, it’s a massive cut though, but I just haven’t got the skills to cook it yet.

First crack at beef ribs. Not sure I hit the right cut, but we’ll soon (8hrs) find out…


#231

I love your food pics!


#232

So, after 2 hours on smoke (combo of alder, mesquite, hickory) I got bored and put them in some beer in the oven. I don’t want to end up with jerky.


#233

Thanks em


#234

Meat sweats kicking in…came out pretty good after the braising in beer a couple hours. Don’t think I’ll do them again, just too beefy.


#235

Never been a fan of beef ribs.


#236

Yeah. I think I’ve just OD’d on them.


#237

BBQ’d pork ribs with a mate a year or so ago, got the meat sweats baaaaaad.
