Re: Sunday Lunch/Dinner

Roast Gammon knuckle tomorrow, torn between pot roast in water and veg or traditional roast to crackle up the skin. Anyone ever done it?

Re: Sunday Lunch/Dinner

It was well nice. Put sage, thyme, garlic, onion, water and potatoes underneath. Full blast for 30 minutes to crackle up the skin, then slow roast for 4 hours. The potatoes were unbelievable. Probably wont salt it next time.

Saturday's our Sunday out this way so Sunday's our Monday.

Did a nice bit of veal cutlet yesterday whilst listening to the Leeds match, sat down at 7:30 pm, baby goes off, we wind up finishing dinner (1 course) at around 9:30 pm.

Can confirm veal's okay cold too..

Thats like a metaphor for parenthood.

Beef rib was sound, sauce needed some work, forgot to tamoto puree. But all tasted nice.

Re: Sunday Lunch/Dinner

Had sticky belly pork.  Roasted belly, then cubed and wokked in garlic, chill, tom puree and soy.  Served over rice with peas in it.  Nice but spent an hour with a toothpick afterwards.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

Re: Sunday Lunch/Dinner

When exactly did we start taking pictures of our food? I'm the worst for it.

Re: Sunday Lunch/Dinner

Not got a slow cooker. Is it more energy efficient?

Pics: its a bit narcissistic I guess, but if you like cooking and its on a cooking thread I say go with it.

They are, but so easy too and they're cheap as chips. Get a great 3.5lt one for under £20. Just chuck it all in and head off to work/go to bed etc.

Did a lovely roast leg of lamb yesterday liberally sprinkled with garlic, rosemary, and oregano.  Celeriac and kale mash,  roasted parsnips and spuds,  and veg.  Four clean plates and a nice bone for me to gnaw on.........

Re: Sunday Lunch/Dinner

I like to roast a chicken with a quartered lemon and a halfed bulb of garlic stuck up it. Quarter an onion and a few whole, slightly crushed garlic cloves in the roasting tin.
Tasty as a bastard and makes a wonderful gravy. A tiny bit of zing from the lemon really lifts it.

Roast veg and a can of Magic Rock Cannonball.
