Xmas dinner

Postby rjb » 25 Dec 2020, 9:38am

Mrs Rjb is in hospital so I am having to fend for myself this year. I have just given the chicken a good grilling before I will put it under more pressure later in my multicooker. Notice the fire extinguisher just in case? Not sure my Sturmey approves! I,ll report back later. Any hints and tips welcome. :lol:

Merry Xmas to you all.

The clue is in the word 'multicooker' !!
Its a slowcooker, pressure cooker, steamer, fryer all in one!

Just one: if you're using an *unusual method for cooking poultry then test that it's cooked all the way through.

Happy Christmas

* And it's not a bad idea if you're using a traditional method...

Well it turned out ok. Chicken was not quite falling apart but very succulent . Spuds were oversoft and carrotts just right, but it looks like I am on chicken dinners and sandwiches for a week now. :(

You are braver than me. The green bits on that turkey look a bit off-putting.
Winter had arrived in the land of Kernow. Along with it came wet roads and cool winds.

The blowlamp was a good idea.

My wife not eating meat, I did myself an individual Beef Wellington for Christmas lunch. The recipe was for making a batch of four and included the immortal advice "put your Wellingtons into the middle of the oven, pre-heated to 450°F/220°C".

Don't eat the green ones, they're not ripe.
Have we got time for another cuppa?

You did pretty well there. Hope the RD&E visits arent too onerous.
We had Chistmas Day and a slap up feast with our bubble mates and today we are doing our own with Carluccios Turkey Breast roll recipé, Mustard, green leaves, nutmeg and Rosemary cooked in a little white wine.
