Steak and vegetables

Mum and Dad rarely eat steak now. It’s too expensive and they’re careful of their teeth. They both have a lot of dental work and they prefer not to chew anything tough. I promised a juicy and tender steak  

I explained to Mum the theory behind Heston Blumenthal’s technique for perfect steak and the importance of resting the meat to get a perfect rare to medium rare steak. I also took the advantage of buying some Scotch rib eye fillet which makes a tender steak pretty well guaranteed unless you neglect it. Mum and Dad love their vegetables so we also had some boiled spuds (potatoes for you refined readers), sweet potato, snow peas, asparagus and sweet corn on the cob.
