Some juicy, super tasty pork chops from John Cross & Sons tonight, served with heritage carrots, purple sprouting broccoli & Jerusalem artichokes ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹
Tender, juicy pork fillet, cooked with celery & carrots in white wine, fever seeds and stock, with garlic mashed potatoes ๐Ÿ˜‹
Tonight's tasty offering, thanks to John Cross & Sons: a nice, juicy pork chop with lots of garlic, roasted carrots in thyme and gnocchi with sage.
Love the classic bags ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
Lamb chops, marinated in cumin, fennel, coriander seed, cinnamon and clove, served with toasted pittas, houmous and a giant couscous salad, with a pomegranate molasses & smoked paprika dressing, tomatoes, courgette, mint and parsley ๐Ÿ˜‹ Yum!
See you tomorrow morning ๐Ÿค—
Last night's extra thick sirloin steak, a red wine & shallot Bordelaise sauce, chunky, crispy chips and rusted mushrooms. Oof! ๐Ÿ˜
Super chunky home made chips, peppery watercress and a juicy steak with a generous dollop of tarragon butter on the top ๐Ÿ˜‹
Some very fresh tasting ingredients in tonight's Mexican tortillas meal ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ. The chilli was made with minced beef from John Cross's, with some diced chorizo from Mamars at The Old Bank , with a freshly made guacamole, salsa and soured cream. Delicious.
I've posted this dish a while back, I'm sure, as it's a firm favourite: Cochi Frito - made with diced lamb shoulder, onions, garlic, paprika, the juice of 2 lemons and plenty of fresh parsley at the end. It's a lovely tender way of cooking the lamb and sounds a bit odd with all that sharp lemon, but the caramelising of the meat, onion and garlic brings about a lovely rich counterbalance. Served simply with new pots and runners. Truly ๐Ÿ˜‹
Lapped up this super-succulent, tender lamb from Cross' in a tasty okra and lamb curry tonight. Yum ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿ˜‹
Here's the Oxtail I mithered for! Absolutely delicious, thank you! ๐Ÿ˜Š
Lovely sirloin steak, served very simply with a salad, with a shallot and course grain mustard dressing. So easy, so tasty.
