Beef !

I've never seen beef in Britain like we get in France. We will be 10 for lunch and I was sent to get meat. There were these huge pieces of beef on offer - they look like hypersteaks. The instructions said "flash-fry over a high heat and serve bleeding". Oh yeah... I casseroled it with onions and peppers in the slow cooker overnight.

O dear, what a waste. French beef is cut and apparently reared differently to British beef and when just seared is absolutely delicious. Then again, I do accept that taste is, like beauty.... dependent on the beholder/sampler. However, when it comes to (whisper it, B.S.E.), I would MUCH rather trust British beef - now.

Fret not, nor beef.
There was no waste !

Yes, but not until you'd spoiled a nice piece of beef!
