Scott's Sunday Kitchen

Chicken with red onion and garlic.

Ingredients

1 Large Chicken
1 Red Onion
1 Onion
2 Carrots
2 Garlic Cloves
3 Medium Potatoes

Image

Slice potatoes , carrots and onion into the mason cash dish and use this as your veg layer for the chicken to sit on.

Image

Take chicken and place on top of the veg.

Now add butter to a pot and grate in your red onion and thinly crush your garlic clove into the pot.

Image

Do not cook this but put onto a low heat and mix well allowing the butter to melt but not evaporate.

Now pour this over your chicken , While the chicken is cooking it will soak up the flavours and the fat off the chicken and butter will allow your veg to cook underneath.

Image

Place into the middle of the oven on 150 and allow to slow cook for roughly 2 hours 45 mins to 3 hours (Cooking time depends on size of chicken.)

Dinner shall be ready 4.20pm happy days.

Just out of interest, and I suspect jock may know the answer to this.
What are your rights in a restaurant if you don't think your meal is up to the standard you expected.

I believe you are not entitled to refuse to pay, is that right.
Anyone have any knowledge on this.

I think you have to notify the restaurant manager and give them the chance to correct your meal.If however after that you are still not happy you could argue your case for not paying for your meal and that you gave them the chance to put it right.

Scott's basically right...http://www.youandyourrights.co.uk/40.asp Note you have to complain early on and not after you've finished eating. :)

I have never seen a case in any where I worked reach Courts and/or lawyers. Good restaurants promote good PR - they want return trade. The Manager usually 'comps' (writes off) part or all of the bill and it ends up in the food wastage accounts. If they sense you're taking the piss they'd send you packing with instructions not to return.

There are some celebrated exceptions - usually relating to expensive wines, but I've not experienced them myself.

Thanks lads :)
Had a very bad meal the other night, although a take away, not a restaurant.
Suffice to say I won't be going back there.

Just got me wondering what the rules were

Braised beef shin for us tonight. I was going to do it yesterday, but the wine did flow. :)

Simple stuff which I have done here before. Sweat onions, garlic and chestnut mushrooms. Brown the meat. Deglaze pan with a glass wine. Toss in some gravy. Bung in the oven for two hours. The meat can be broken with a fork.

I was checking prices yesterday in my butchers here in Caernarfon. Lamb was literally twice the price. Crazy. The Shin is great value - even allowing for cooking costs.

The Lambing season is under way now. So I'd be keeping an eye on those prices. Yesterday it was just under £15 a kilo (Q Butcher prices)

Cheers col {8 {8

Out of my depth here but will try . . .

Take sum spuds,boil um and mash um, shread a cabbage boil it, git sum spring onions, and mash them all together.

Now for the clever bit ;x; . . Put some grease proof paper on a tray lightly buttered, divide up portions as big as your gob size (walnut whip size here) then drizzle with butter and bake for 20/30 mins until golden brown.

Have with steak or and red meats such as corded beef or gammon.

Open said gob and enjoy :)







Not what we have come to expect on here but they are bloody loverly.

Enjoy chef grimmy {8

I bought a bit of beef shin from our monthly farmers' market yesterday. Never cooked with it before but used it to make a chilli instead of the usual stewing/braising steak. It was great, really full of flavour.

I will definitely be using it again.

Good for you Matt :thumbs

I've posted a few Beef Skin dishes here and I am 100% in agreement with you. I know like me you like your wine. Beef Shin blossoms with red wine sauce (beef stock/wine/onions/mushrooms/herbs). For those that prefer to stick to these shores a good stout works well too.

Beef shin is excellent value for money. What was the price per Kilo Matt? I pay just under £8 here in Caernarfon at 'Q Butcher'.

Big cheers to you Col. :cheers My Mother is struggling to eat now (with her MND), but I'd ask my Stepfather what he thinks of me ordering some for her Birthday in May.

Alan - I've not forgotten your tips either. :thumbs

Skirt I associate with Fajitas BTO. :) Some use Flank Steak, but Skirt would be my choice. I have a marinade recipe back in England that I will try and dig out for all of you. A former flatmate in Austin worked for a posh caterer called 'Green Acres' there and it was their recipe. It includes pineapple juice to help break down the meat.

I'm sure I have written here previously about my past work experience in the 'Rib Room' in Cambridge Mass. Rib-eye is my steak of choice. Wonderfully marbled, it takes so well to all sorts of cooking methods. It looks fabulous still attached to it bone, but we 'Brits' seldom have outdoor grills capable of holding enough to feed a family. Matt may be the exception to that. :)
