Traditional Corned Beef

Traditional Corned Beef

Corned Beef is also known as Corned Silverside.

A fabulous dish traditionally for the cooler months, however I believe it works equally as well anytime of year served cold in a sandwich or roll with lashings of your favourite chutney, relish or seeded mustard.

A fork should easily penetrate the meat when cooked.

I always leave the meat in the cooking liquids until served, even if using as a cold cut the next day.

My recipe uses fruit instead of sugar for flavour and balance.

Beer & Brine Beef Short Ribs

Beer & Brine Beef Short Ribs

Beef Short Ribs a country classic!

"Brine" is an old country cook and butcher technique that will transform a tough, less expensive cut of meat into a magnificent "top shelf" dish.

With pickled pork and corned silverside we do the brining for you, however its a handy skill to master, and extremely simple.

Here's the thing, if you treat grass fed short cut beef ribs with a little "TLC" such as brine and beer, it can transform into a piece of beef that is truly amazing. 

Beef Short Cut ribs are a less expensive cut of beef that require lots of time to cook. They are easy to prepare.

Have a go at my "low & slow" Beer & Brine Beer Glazed Beef Ribs, you'll be back for more.

Although time is crucial in this recipe, the actual techniques are super simple.

Beef Breaky Roll

Beef Breaky Roll

Inspired by the amazing smoky American style BBQ flavours.  This Breakfast Roll will have your friends and family lined up at the door all day.

This breakfast roll plays on the traditional Aussie Breakfast Roll with bacon, eggs and slaw and incorporates American style BBQ flavours.

When in season grab a bottle of my Bull In A Bottle BBQ Sauce made from local Birregurra Red Plums and get ready for a taste sensation. 

Use the braised topside as a base for other dishes, such as Beef & Salad, wraps or even in a Taco. Remember, just cause its a Breaky Roll does not mean you can't enjoy it ALL day.

Vietnamese Beef Salad

Vietnamese Beef Salad

I've had the pleasure of hiking both the north and south of Vietnam with friends. It was awesome exploring rural villages that have hardly ever seen a westerner. I was lucky to be welcomed into Vietnamese homes to eat traditional foods and see how they are prepared.

I have had the opportunity to enjoy cooking classes in Ho Chi Ming, as well as explore wet markets and paddock to plate throughout Vietnam.

I've also enjoyed a more relaxed boutique Vietnamese coastal style holiday with my husband. During which I developed an insight into char grilling meats and seafood on primitive open BBQ's.  It was interesting to see the flavour intensity using simple seasoning and various BBQ fuels such as palm leaves. Amazing how these primitive BBQ processes added to the final flavours of the dish. 

Vietnam is still an affordable destination with many cultural highlights and sensory delights. If you can't get there, let me share a little bit of Vietnam with this simple recipe. 

Perhaps one of the most famous dishes loved by all, is Vietnamese Beef Salad. Loved as it's fresh and heathy yet packed with popping flavour. It's my definition of 'fresh on a plate'.
