Suggestive Steak Condiments

Beef done Bleu

Jan, a reader of this blog, wrote to me asking for some recipes for sauces to go with steak. Personally, I usually just eat steak with a bit of mustard if the steak is fatty or if I’m feeling fancy, with a sauce made from reduced pan juices deglazed with Balsamic vinegar.

However, if you’re feeling really fancy and want an alternative, here’s my suggestion…

Making Hyderabadi Kacchi Lamb Biryani

2013August0909-KacchiBiryani-4

Biryani, Biriyani, Beriani, Buriani; there are many names, styles and variations to this amazing one-pot Sunday dinner that it’s meaningless to talk about authenticity. But I do love them all.

As such, in my quest to learn how to cook what I like to eat, this took me about a month to tweak and to talk to many people who’ve added much to my understanding of this epic dish. Many thanks go to David Yip for the suggestion of the Cartouche and to Thanaletchumy for her tips and tricks. She’s a fantastic home-cook who does an epic Teh Alia.

Any mistakes found here however, are all my fault.

Restaurant Home at The Rail Mall, Bukit Timah

2013October1414-Home-13

It’s the holidays and Jeff was in town. He quickly organized a dinner at Restaurant Home because he read about it in the papers and wanted to give it a try.

For those who’ve lost track of Executive Chef Tan Yong Hua, he was last in Joo Chiat’s Chudao (which has since moved to Rivervale Walk, Sengkang). He’s supposed to be a celebrity chef but we didn’t hold that against him. :)

Diamond Kitchen in Laguna Park, Marine Parade Road

2013September2121-Diamond Kitchen-6

I must confess that when I saw photos of Andrew’s lunch at Diamond Kitchen about 2-3 weeks back, I was salivating. That man sure can take good photos of a pork rib.

Being veteran makankaki, we are ever ready to spring into action at the sound of a SMS delivery.
