Doesn't matter how much you pay for meat if it's not cooked correctly.

thanks

they look like the noodles you can get at yum cha, and my daughters love them

assume it's just an egg noodle, with oyster sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, but quantities etc. would be nice

So I've been doing some small scale experiments in curing in preparation for us getting 1/2 of a pig delivered on Friday.

Below is guanciale, cured pigs jowl, cured in a salt/pepper mix for a week before hanging under the house for about 3 weeks until it lost 30% of its weight.

It's quite yum - going to have some on pizza tonight. The fat is super creamy.

Edit: oh, and I got these for $5.00 per pigs head, that's $2.50 per cheek, so they're super super frugal!

Hah! It totally looks like that but it's some thread from the muslin I wrapped it in while hanging it. I've done bacon before, but this is a lot scarier to make... to dry bacon out (after curing) you smoke it, but this is hung up under the house for weeks - a big part of my gets very concerned about leaving meat out for that time unrefridgerated... but it's good!

Couple of dinners over the last week.



Minestrone with garlic bread. It is incredibly cold in Melbourne - this Italian classic really hit the spot!



Yes, that's Hainanese Chicken Rice sitting on a bed of choy sum. Experimented with plating to irritate the traditionalists

For the first time in about 10 years my triglycerides aren't dangerously high. So naturally I need to reward myself with a nice juicy steak.

Check out the marbling on this one:

I'm interested in a Pork Chop tossed in Cajun spices, cooked to medium, served with a apple/satay sauce (apple provides any sugar).

Yeah ribeye - just pan fried rare - I can't think of too many more pleasurable sensations than the fat melting in my mouth.

This thread on the SECOND page? Blasphemy.

Nando's inspired chicken maryland. Marinated for 24h in nandos store marinade (don't sue me Amf) then sous vide at 80C for 1h15m then onto the BBQ for a nice char. Amazing.

Did my twice-cooked pork belly again a couple of nights ago.
Went down a treat once more, no pics though... I've decided my shitty phone cam really doesn't do justice to anything I make.
Hoping to get a decent camera for my bday in just under a month, then I can show off a bit more.

Looking forward to the recipe for that Okonomyaki, looks deliciously interesting!
Haven't attempted much in the way of Japanese-style dishes, this looks like a nice one to try.
