This week we are introducing “The Glasgow Fillet” , otherwise known as featherblade or oysterblade, which is good for slow-cooking. This old fashioned cut which was a staple of childhood in Glasgow pre 1980′s.
Seal the beef with seasoned flour, sauté onions, roast root vegetables diced thinly, beef stock, parsley stocks some red wine.
Make sure the stock covers the meat. Cook slowly for at least 2 hours. Reduce the stock to give a sauce. This week we are serving it
with red cabbage and mash.
Other items on our men this week are:
Hot smoked mackerel and black pudding
Guinea fowl with roast chestnuts and fondant potatoes,
Roast vegetables and pecorino tart
Beetroot Risotto and Goats cheese
Roast Cheesy Leeks
Ever tried that game, think of a word. Say the word Tablet…and what you will usually come up with is something like..ma granny’s or auntie Jean’s was magic. Tablet is a kind of Scottish family thing and someone’s kin usually makes a tray of it generally served on a special visit to see them. For many the only time they get a chance to savour this Scottish confectionary symbol is on a Bus tour to a Scottish visitors centre.
Not the safest to make when kids are around due to the boiling sugar. Go on… make some Tablet for friends and family as a Christmas gift or stocking filler.
