Yesterday I reviewed the Mighty Spice Cookbook and promised a recipe from it, so here you are.
This was delicious, I used some of my Morrison’s father’s day rump steak rather than the fillet suggested in the recipe, which I was very impressed with. Both tender and flavoursome, far better quality than I am used to from supermarket meat.
I have also come to realise that ginger is essential in any vaguely Chinese based recipe to give a full and rounded flavour. The balsamic vinegar is an interesting addition, adding a modern flavour and some sourness. I’ll be making variations on this recipe again and again.
