Chicken and ham cheesey pasta thing.
Given how good it tastes, and how little there is on each animal, oxtail should command a far higher price.Tonight was oxtail and all sorts of vegetables thrown together in the slow cooker and left on low all day. With a little drop of L&P it tasted great mopped up with bread, leaving enough for tomorrow.
Only I forgot to take any pics.
You're tossing it off in The Ivy and I claim my £5. Either that or you're Heston Peirre-Ramsey.
I've been aware of the Scottish/ Irish versions forever, but never really had a go...... it's a sort of bubble and squeak, dozens of different recipes.
After a short hop, skip and jump, I settled on this attempt, and it came out really well.
You can do it with or without meat, I tried it as a one pot dish, but it will do well with steak, chops etc.
1 gammon steak, chunked and fried in butter.
Fry up a small leek and 4 spring onions till golden.
Shred finely a fair amount of sweetheart or other green cabbage, fry in a little butter till tender.
Just do them one after the other in the same pan, then add to a casserole dish.
Chunk about 3-4 medium spuds, and boil till not quite tender, then crush roughly, and add to the casserole.
Boil up the swede till tender, mash with butter, a little nutmeg, salt and pepper.... add.
Stir, add about 3 tbsp of milk, pat down gently, cover in foil, cook in a medium oven for 30 minutes, then take out, cover in strong grated cheddar, then finish off until melted.
I was shocked how good it tasted, especially my finicky wife's reaction........ should be excellent for fussy kids, too, becase you can't pick out individual veg, might be worth a try with cooked, chunked sausages, for the awckward buggers.
