Something I scraped together πŸ™‹


Recommended Posts

Duck breast [Gressingham,,,, sorry] mashed potatoes, sautΓ©ed mushrooms and cabbage, red wine, shallot and garlic jus/sauce. Had to use up the 2nd duck breast after my attempt at a Japanese concoction last night, so did something ad-hoc 😁 It was quite tasty, if I say so myself πŸ˜†

duck looks perfectly cooked.

Thanks πŸ‘ Only the 3rd time I've ever cooked duck,,,, just go by cooking instructions and instinct πŸ˜€ It was very tender,,,, resting meat after cooking is very important, especially with duck, I'm finding out πŸ™‚

Looks good.

The trouble with these "ad-hoc" dishes is, they are hard to repeat.

Cheers,,,, I was going to do something really fancy, but the recipes I found were way beyond my abilities, so I did something I'm used to 😁 This was a variation of my steak dinners,,,, with mash instead of boiled and cabbage in place of leeks.

Also, the title was a subtle dig at another member's previous comment 😜

Very nice , duck looks nice and pink - maybe a decent glass of Malbec to drinkΒ  ?

Thanks, yes it was pink, and very tender 😊 Unfortunately I don't like to drink red wine, but love it in cooking πŸ€·πŸ˜ƒ Love the aroma, same with port, just don't like the taste πŸ˜•

Looks very nice and I have to say, much more suited to me than the Japanese one.Β  I love Indian food, but the other eastern cuisines are not my favourites.

Thanks John, appreciated πŸ‘ TBH I just like trying out different meals, wherever they've originated from. The Japanese dish looked great [I eat with my eyes] and was simple to create, but,,,, I prefer Thai food over Chinese and I do love Indian grub πŸ˜ƒ
