What a week?! Somehow the week sort of started and it crazily went by and well, all I can say is that I'm glad it's over and I have a weekend to look forward to. That also explains the lack of blog posts in the past week, I've just come home from work too exhausted to type up anything but thanks for the comments that all of you have left. It's always great to come back to my blog and know that I have readers out there.
Well I mentioned earlier that I was quite addicted to wagyu beef. We had another BBQ at home last weekend and mum, since learning of my addiction to wagyu, went out to buy more wagyu (shall I say, more than what she did last time) for the BBQ. We ended up having way too much wagyu to cook that night so there were about 3 slabs left over for the next day. Between J&I myself, we were quick to gobble these up (wagyu beef goes down so smoothly - you hardly even need to chew it!); anyway, here's what I made:
The ingredients: Wagyu Beef, Rocket, Sliced Cucumber, Grated Carrot, Lavosh Bread and Nando's Hot Peri Peri Sauce (between Mum and I, we have now stocked up on the whole range of Nando's sauces available at supermarkets!)
Never overcook your wagyu. Look how pretty the pink is between the two seared surfaces (these slabs we had took about 2.5 minutes on each side).
Dose with a generous serving of Nando's Hot Peri Peri Sauce.
The tricky bit is wrapping this up so you can eat it. The Lavosh bread rips quite easily - anyway I've left you with a nice picture of my meal before I had to grab it all together and have sauce dripping out all over the place.
J had two of these for dinner and well, he wasn't really in the mood for conversation because he was happily chewing away. FYI: Originally I'd made us one each and half way through his, he'd perked up and asked about another one so I actually had to get up and make the other one. Good to see though that he finished dinner looking content.
It's really quite satisfying when you've cooked something and people ask for seconds and finish dinner with a smile on their face. And well, even the lack of conversation is excusable when you know that those eating are holding back on the conversation to attack into the food!
