steak and potatoes

There you go. Beef fillet with potatoes cooked in a hot oven in goose fat with rosemary and sea salt. Reduced red wine and cream sauce with field mushrooms.

    I know, I know. Just the other day it was asked to draw a picture of me at school and it couldn’t remember what I looked like. I was gutted.

    Looks like a traditional French Sunday dinner to me. Except I rarely cook beef filet, it is so expensive. I use beef rib instead, uhm, this picture makes me hungry.

    Much nicer than a roast I think.

    Actually this one came with a bit of rib still attached which made it look like a ginat lamb chop. Unfortunately I had to share it so I only got half.
    Fillet is getting expensive but it seems to be getting tastier, so I buy smaller amounts and kind of maintain the same sense of value.

    Sounds totally yumtastic and uber-decadent. I would take a crack at making it, but darn it, I just ran out of goose fat.

    i love the idea of cooking in fat. goose, duck, pork – all good. i often stare at the tins of goose and duck fat and dream of what confit and rillettes i could create. maybe it’s time to stop dreaming and start rendering.

    Oh gawn make yer own David.

    Hmmm 3D pork rendering – lots of fun rendering duck fat from all the fatty bits. Actually I like how in Japan they give you a small cube of tallow with your steak at the butchers.
