Comfort Food

As you know the weather here the last few weeks has been cold, wet, and miserable which of course means one tends to make warm filling comfort food. As this is food that takes a long slow time to cook it also counts as child abuse.

This weekend I made a classic peasant dish. It was so yummy that word got out and number one daughter turned up the next night to have the leftovers for dinner. Every ridge on her plate was scraped clean. So here it is..........brains in gravy!!

The brains of which particular beast ?

The Dumpling Beast!! That was the final stage of child abuse. After the beef had braised for 3 hours (is it ready yet? is it ready yet?) I then had to make dumplings which took another half hour of cooking!

Gross. Did you miss your pay last month and can't afford real meat?

Ha ha. As you very well know Cactus the "brains" are dumplings, but as it's my little work of art I can call it what I want.

The dish actually contained lashings of your favourite beast which was slowly braised in vast quantities of restaurant made jus. This effectively means that the gravy had a dollar value similar to Wagyu beef!
