De-boned Roast Chicken

De-boned roast chicken has been on my to-do-list for a very long time. Roast chicken, I think I have perfected ( according to my family), but de-boned roast chicken I have avoided for far to long. The fear of failure is my downfall in life and it was also what kept me from trying to […]

Roast beef, the quintessential Sunday lunch, in South Africa served with soetpatat (sweet potato) , cauliflower and white sauce, roast potatoes and green beans. At least that is how Ma Brandt cooks it and no wonder my children refers fondly to this meal as “Brandt-kos”. Roast Beef in England is a different story, served with […]

Sirloin – Perfect for steaks and roasts!

Posted on April 12, 2010 by in beef

Sirloin has never been my favorite cut of steak. I have always maintained that you cannot beat the flavor of a well-aged rump of even a rib-eye steak. Sirloin steak has never been my favorite, given the choice, I have always been partial to rump. Well, I think I might have changed my opinion about […]
