Sunday, 5th November Steak Dinner

A hearty meal for a day of rest... Yummy delicious steak and salad cooked by Chef Satellite, whom happened to be too lazy to post this up herself.

Anyway, this time round she used the grill to make the lovely steaks.

Rare was extremely rare, medium rare was rare, and it goes on ... you know how it works.

Look at these delicious photos and you'll see what we enjoyed ... yummmmmmssss

Ah the sauce was a dark brandy brown sauce, how it was made again is a mystery cause I don't remember how I made it. Hahaha ... there were alot of ingredients.

Mmm ok, yah now I remember, the salad was an italian based salad with a secret italian sauce ... Satellite's not letting out the secret to making her sauce, but I think Jian and I know her secret! Muahahaha....

No alcohol was involved after and during this meal. Like said it was a day of rest.

Satellite, Jian, Sumdumful and myself went for a Saturday brunch at Pontini's which offered free flow sparkling wine, red n white wine, beer and fruit juices. The food was ok, but of course we loved the Oysters that went with the wonderful sparkly.

What else was nice ... hmmm I'll let the rest post up what they thought was nice. Unfortunately this time round, I found their Caesar Salad Dressing a bit disappointing and the cooked foods looked very dry. Oh yah, and the cart with the prime rib never made it to our side. I think they had Osso bucco ( I think that is what it was!) but I never had a chance to eat it .. I think Jian ate some. They have pizza, pasta and they can even cook up some eggs for ya. Sumdumful had a plate of eggs, she claims the fried eggs were perfectly made!

Osso buco
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Osso buco is a regional dish from Piedmont, Italy. Osso buco translates literally to "bone hole", a reference to the marrow which gives the dish its distinctive flavour and body. Traditionally, a veal shank is used in this dish. Other staples include white wine, broth or stock, and aromatics.

A nice recipe you can try at home to make Osso buco
