Great British Cuisine

Myself & Mr A had one of the greatest British dinners ever cooked tonight - steak & chips! mmmmm. It's been a long time since we've had this particular delicacy, as it's not too good for you: Steak (brazilian, well hung), cooked to a perfect medium rare on the griddle, chips, made from Maris Piper potatoes, with the skin on, coooked in very hot beef dripping (nothing tastes like it), slow, softly fried onions, with just a pinch of sugar to caramalise them beautifully, with stir-fried sugarsnap peas & garlic in sesame oil & soy suace. Heaven on a plate. Topped off by the fact that I actually ate it with two hands (usually I balance a baby in the other) as LM Dark will sit in her highchair & munch finger food happily now.

    Oh, yummm!! It's five o'clock here, and I really should start making dinner, but suddenly all I want are steak and chips when we have neither steak nor potatoes in the house. Damn!

    Definitely the best way to cook chips is Beef Dripping... OK not the healthiest way, but the best tasting for sure, good thing we only do it about once every 2 years.
