What did you have for dinner


#142

Something about drinking melktert just sounds gross


#143

We’ve mostly been eating super healthy this year. So um tonight I want to order something super unhealthy for delivery. I’m thinking a nice burger and chips.


#144

No! Don’t give in to temptation!

We had a potjie-fondue this afternoon. Everyone made their own little potjie over that green burning gel. Worked out quite well. Would do it again. Only problem is when you want seconds…

I made a Two-bean coconut curry potjie with mushrooms, peppers, zucchini and potatoes


#145

Made steak. Wanted to make a pan sauce while the steak was resting and I left the pan on and then all the nice caramelised stuff got burnt. :pensive:


#146

At least you don’t do it often, mum made potatoes - I have no idea how she does it, but she burns potatoes - ALL the time.


#147

We went vegetarian tonight for dinner

#150

Went with my parents to a teppenyaki last night.

Dang that was good


#151

How have I only found out about melkkos now, after 9 years?


#152

Seriously? The wife makes the best “kluitjierige” melkkos…


#153

I have never had melkkos - I had to google it - it sounds like a lumpy white sauce. . . .

I made beef and broccoli over the weekend - I type of chow mein



I used an egg noodle I found at my chinese market.
Precooked till just before cooked thru and then put aside to cool off - I added 1 tablespoon of oil to keep them from sticking.

ngredients

for 4 servings

  • ½ cup

water

  • 1 tablespoon

cornstarch

  • ¼ cup

soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon

garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon

brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon

white pepper

  • 1 lb

flank steak, thinly sliced

  • salt, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons

cooking oil, divided

  • 6 oz

chow mein noodle, hong kong style pan fried noodles, par cooked according to package instructions

  • ½ cup

onion, sliced

  • 1 cup

broccoli floret

  • 2 teaspoons

sesame oil

  • scallions, sliced, for garnish

Preparation

  1. In a 2-cup (480 ml) liquid measuring cup, combine the water, cornstarch, soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar, and white pepper.
  2. In a medium bowl, season the steak strips with salt. Pour half of the sauce over the meat and set the rest aside for later. Mix the sauce with the steak, cover with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  3. In a wok or deep skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil, then add the par-cooked noodles. Cook for 1-2 minutes, allowing the noodles to crisp, then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  4. In the same wok, add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil and the marinated beef. Cook the beef for 3-4 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes, or until slightly crispy. Remove from the wok and set aside.
  5. In the same wok, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil and add onion and broccoli. Season with salt, then stir and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the onions are translucent.
  6. Return the steak to the wok, followed by the crispy noodles and sesame oil. Mix well and pour in the reserved sauce. Toss gently and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until everything is well-combined. Garnish with sliced scallions.
  7. Enjoy!

Needs oyster sauce. Otherwise that looks amazing! The baby corns are essential!

Last night, I made spaghetti with a basil tomato sauce, with a Trinidad scorpion pepper deseeded and chopped up. And bloody me, forgot to put chicken in it for my protein. Again…


#155

I havent tried oyster sauce yet :stuck_out_tongue: that and fish sauce - the name says it all :stuck_out_tongue:


#156

Oyster sauce is amazing.


#157

Fish sauce… I only use it when I make spring rolls. Which ends up going to waste because I only make them once every 5 years and the fish sauce goes bad (ok, so it smells like it’s already bad as soon you open a new bottle)


#158

I will buy a small bottle of oyster sauce next time I go to the market


#159

Made a nice juicy beef roast and a rich moist chocolate cake…


#160

Where is my cake? Pretty please?
