Roast Beef, Rice and Gravy with Sautéed Spinach

I haven’t fixed this in what seems like ages.

To drink, I had a bottle of Mahonia – a Syrah barrel aged Old Ale with grapes – from Propolis.


Corned Beef, Braised Cabbage with Slab Bacon, Fried New Potatoes with Dill Horseradish Cream

It was St. Patrick’s Day yesterday, and I did the usual Corned Beef and Braised Cabbage with Slab Bacon. Last year, I did the Duck Fat Roasted Potatoes but this year I did my mother’s Fried New Potatoes so I wouldn’t have to jockey with the two different oven tempeatures. I also made some Dill Horseradish Sauce.

I went with my last bottle of the Beermongers Anniversary Ale from The Ale Apothecary from the cellar.

Galbi Short Ribs, Sambal Chicken Skewers, Crab Fried Rice, Dry-Fried Green Beans, Shigumchi Namool

My wife wanted to make Crab Fried Rice for her sister’s birthday instead of the Mexican Fiesta we usually do after seeing an episode of Matty Matheson’s It’s Suppertime! But, after watching the episode, we could not find the recipe for his version or Crab Fried Rice anywhere. My wife ended up improvising, using a few different recipes.

Since I’m not the biggest fan of Fried Rice or Crab, I decided to do a variety of other Asian dishes: Galbi Short Ribs, Sambal Chicken Skewers, Dry-Fried Green Beans, Shigumchi Namool.

Since we have the Rhubarb Salsa with the Fiesta that we usually do, I had planned to have a bottle of Therapy Ferret – a wild ale aged with rhubarb in whiskey barrels – from The Ale Apothecary. But when we switched the menu, I couldn’t think of anything else to drink.

Korean Porter Skirt Steak, Shigumchi Namool, Gamja Jorim

I wanted to try out the Korean Porter Skirt Steak that I found on The Beeroness website. The Shigumchi Namool and Gamja Jorim had dome previously with the last time I did the Bo Ssäm.

I had a hard time deciding what to have with this, so I went with a bottle of El Cuatro – aged in brandy & whiskey barrels to age for over a year – from The Ale Apothecary.
