Jerked turkey breast steaks. Roasted taters and parsnips. Steamed white cabbage and broccoli. Gravy.

Re: What are you eating now thread?

We had guests at weekend so served
Beef short ribs - rub on for 2 days prior to smoking for 4 hours on BBQ adding Korean BBQ sauce for last hour. (I must remember to carve these rather than giving single ribs - too big)
Sticky rice
Pineapple curry
Thai vegetable yellow curry
Followed by
Chilli chocolate pots


I get the ribs at Costco because too many supermarkets don't sell as a rack.

Monkfish is far more expensive. It would be like trying to pass-off venison as beef.

Polish sausage and flageolet beans for us today. And it's the last of the flageolet beans as no-one seems to stock them any more.

It is now it's trendy but it used to be very cheap, rather like lamb shanks are so pricy. There was a time when the butchers couldn't sell them and virtually gave them away.

They've disappeared from Sainsbury's as well. I have a nice recipe for tuna and bean salad but I have to substitute the beans with another type.

Re: What are you eating now thread?

I buy beans from Asian supermarket where I can get a 600g jar of white beans that is 85 bean not water for 69p. They have lots of other sorts of bean so is it worth checking if you have access?

I call it Celebratory Chef Inflation. You have a nice cheap and tasty ingredient. Some TV Chef then shows everyone else and it becomes trendy and the price shoots up.


Pork ribs are same. Often charge more for the bony ribs than the meat they cut off them and often in this country they cut nearly all the meat off the bone (don't buy ribs with the bone showing - shiners). Waitrose have their "Meaty Ribs" but too often cut into "chops" not left as a rack.

I was a butcher back in the 80s and the spare ribs we used to sell then were just the waste off the shoulder next to the much tastier spare rib chop. Now you see butchers (well supermarket meat providers anyway) cutting the rib off the belly draft and then selling them as spare rib basically ruining the belly draft in the process. Meat is much better cooked on the bone where possible.

Best cut of beef is the chine rib cooked on the bone but now they ruin that by cutting the eye out of it and steaking that

Re: What are you eating now thread?

Did a BBQ party yesterday for members of a bible study group my wife helps with. 2 members have birthdays coming up and requested a barbie.


Pork works well. Interesting that shoulder is cheaper than belly now and that is cheaper than ribs. (Side note - disappointed that Costco didn't have racks of beef short ribs, just all separated individual ribs). So did a 2.5kg shoulder with garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano marinade on the braai with apple wood smoke. I went for a nap so son applied more marinade with rosemary brush. Also did 2kg of Italian sausage (just garlic and salt seasoning - 97% meat) in rolls.


I made a chilli sauce, we also did village salad with feta on the side, halloumi, flat breads.


So nice to be able to cook for a group of people again.
